Will You Be Wearing Matching Lips And Nails This Fall?

Chanel Tries Dada
This new ad campaign for Rouge Allure is very avant-garde. Read More »

So I guess matching your lipstick to your nail polish is kind of a thing now? A bevy of designers, from Giorgio Armani to Zac Posen, walked coordinating shades down the runway last season, but something about its slightly contrived nature led me to believe it was just one of those things that wouldn’t take in the real world. It strikes me as having a very sophisticated Upper East Side vibe, which just doesn’t work for me. And yet ever-tempting brands like Dior and Chanel are giving their seal of approval by launching “twin sets” of nail lacquer and lipstick intended to be worn together, making the matchy-matchy trend a touch more difficult to resist. Are you into it, or do you think this is a look best worn by ladies who lunch?

Men Hate Women Who ... Read? Reap? Weep?

In the vast, ever-evolving cosmos of luxury makeup, Chanel unfailingly offers some of the very best — and they come with gorgeous artsy videos, to boot. The brand has been teasing us with short promotional flicks advertising their upcoming Rouge Allure reformulation for some time, and what this new video lacks in the hypnotic factor of the one that came out in July, it makes up for in quirky charm. The minute-long film is a homage to Erwin Blumenfeld, a Dadaist photographer responsible for a number of memorable Vogue covers back in the ’30s and ’40s. The new lipstick shades are to die for (and, for a Chanel makeup hoarder like me, an absolute must-have) and the video is just as alluring (heh) as its namesake, but the voiceover bit towards the end is a touch questionable. “Men hate women who …,” what? You’ll just have to listen for yourself. [Fashionista]

Anthropologie gives me a complex. I walk in and I’m like, “I want this life,” which turns into “Does anyone actually have this life?,” which quickly becomes “Why is this life so goddamn expensive?” I go because I want one top; I emerge with that top, a whimsical set of $20 bobby pins, a $60 coffee table book, and maybe some driftwood or tree branches. Don’t even get me started on their beauty section — as the biggest sucker of all time for gorgeously packaged items I definitely don’t need, I am all over it. Basically, Anthropologie is a well-designed trap, and they get me every time. It’s shabby chic, you guys! I need it! Keep reading »

It’s official: we’ve entered an age in which your average lipstick just won’t cut it, and neither will the slippery high-gloss patinas of yore. We need moisturizing, long-wearing, intensely pigmented matte colors that won’t flake, fade, or budge, and we need them, like, yesterday. Enter Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick, a rich, creamy formula that dries to a flawless velvety finish. It will see you through the workday and beyond, without the moisture-zapping effect mattes are infamous for. In 9 shades ranging from the prettiest of muted rose-petal hues to the most vibrant, almost-neon coral (which, guilty, I’m wearing right now), there’s something for everyone in the Opaque Rouge lineup. Plus, it feels so light on the lips that you’ll forget you have it on … that is, until you sneak a glance in the mirror to find that it’s persevered far beyond even its promised 14 hours. (And say what you will about the siren call of packaging — the slim futuristic tube looks pretty damn glamorous peeking out of a clutch.) [$28, Sephora]

I think I’ve mentioned my love for Revlon Lip Butters a few times now, most recently in the context of my summer makeup routine, but I thought it was time to make things official and ask Lip Butter to marry me write up a full Beauty Test Drive. This awesome lip balm/lipstick hybrid is the bestselling lip color of the year, and I’ve contributed to its success by buying three shades (so far) and recommending it to many of my friends, especially the ones who are hesitant about lipstick. Want to know why? Get the scoop, after the jump… Keep reading »

So who was it that said redheads couldn’t wear pink? Sure, one of Jessica Chastain‘s false lashes may be trying to make a run for it, but the rest of her looks freakin’ fabulous. With that said, I am neon pink lipstick’s fiercest, most loyal advocate; I will testify to the death that a seriously hot semi-matte pink like this one looks good on anyone, anywhere, all the time, and that means redheads, too. It brightens up fair complexions, provides killer contrast to a tan, and makes your teeth look whiter and your eyes sharper and clearer. Such a bold shade plays best with a fresh, natural complexion and little color elsewhere, like Jessica’s glowy skin and light-handed blush in a similar shade. I’m just a touch disappointed that Jessica went the extensions route this time rather than sport her new bob, but hey, she looks gorgeous either way.

Lust Vs. Must: Awesome Orange-y Red Lipstick

Coral is the color of summer. But do you want to spend a ton of money on a lipstick you’ll probably shove deep in your junk drawer once fall comes? We didn’t think so. So we’ve compared some of the most popular corals on the market. Can you tell which is the $24 lipstick and which was plucked from CVS shelves for just $1.99? Keep reading »

Should Heidi Klum Get Her “Responsible Mom” Card Revoked For Letting Her Girls Wear Lipstick?

Growing up, I was never given any restrictions regarding whether or not I could wear makeup, or how much makeup I was allowed to wear. My parents, who are admittedly pretty laissez faire by most standards, are also the type to choose their battles, and what I put on my face was just not one of them. I expressed interest in products from a hilariously young age — home videos show me at five talking extensively about my mother’s fancy body wash like a regular Suri Cruise — and for all but a few grease-filled tweenage years, I’ve been beauty-crazed ever since. That’s why I find it so difficult to fathom why mothers, particularly those under the relentless and unforgiving eye of the media spotlight, receive so much flack for letting their young daughters wear a little bit of makeup.

Helmut Red Is An Oh-So-Appropriate Tribute To A Legend

Helmut Newton is inarguably one of the most prolific fashion photographers in history. His body of work, which during his life was a mainstay in high-end publications like Vogue Paris and Harper’s Bazaar, is instantly recognizable world-over. Nudity, overt sexualization, and erotic fetishistic subtexts stylized expressively in black and white are the hallmarks of a Helmut shot.
