Urban Outfitters Mood-Changing Lipstick Takes Me Back To Childhood

When I was in sixth grade, I bought a lime green mood-changing lipstick for $1.25. It painted my mouth a heinous hot pink. I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup at the time, but I think my mom let me wear it as a punishment because it was so horrible.

So you can understand… More »


Glamorous Tartan Holiday

We’d be happy with having this red tartan bag just because it’s perfect for transporting our tiny valuables–like our favorite lipstick, coins, or jewelry. But MAC sweetened the deal by adding VIVA GLAM V lipstick and lip gloss to the ‘Tis Noble to Give VIVA GLAM Lip Bag. What’s even better? All proceeds go to… More »


Trend Report: Hawaiian Punch Lips From Paris

We’re loving these street-style snaps from Paris Fashion Week for the bold lips these ladies are rocking. We’ve seen neon lipstick hues on the runway before, but know the super bright beauty look doesn’t always translate so well to the real world. These girls show you how it’s done—go minimal with the rest of your… More »


Which Lipstick Trend Do You Prefer For Fall—Matte Or Glossy?

Not since the days of Cindy Crawford and plum-brown shades have we really rocked a matte lip. But Nars Cosmetics is bringing the texture back with the announcement of their new Pure Matte lipstick. Another lipstick debut that has garnered lots of blog attention recently—Tom Ford’s Private Blend collection, which features a super-glam, high-sheen finish. More »

Ke$ha’s Blue Lips Are Not A Good Look

I might have been able to excuse Ke$ha’s blue lipstick if she hadn’t also worn teal eyeliner. But when I really think about it, this is a really tame cry for attention; she could do worse. On another note, doesn’t Ke$ha look like Stephanie Pratt? [NYC, 8/2/10] … More »


Beauty Test Drive: L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lipcolour Stars Collection

I’ve had a love-hate relationship with lipstick for the last two years. I love red lipstick and apply it perfectly in the morning, even using a matching lip liner to outline and fill in my lips first. But it never fails that once I take a mouthful of yogurt at work, my spoon is wearing… More »


The New Meaning Of Drawn-On Lips

Back in the ’90s, no one wanted anyone to know they used lip liner to make their lips look fuller. But now, the new trend is to totally relocate your lips so they can be any size you want ‘em. But seriously, while this looks cool in a beauty editorial, I hope no one tries… More »

Will Crazy Lipstick Colors Ever Be Mainstream?

Do you remember when nail polish colors other than pink and red were shocking? When Chanel’s Vamp came down the runway in 1994, it caused a major stir. Now everyone wears purple, navy, and, yes, even black on their fingers, but outrageous lip colors are another story. Every once in a while we’ll see makeup… More »


I Love Lipstick

Truth to tell, that lipstick survey — the one that says lipstick is, well, over — has been bumming me out. I love the stuff. But this wasn’t always the case. When I was a little girl in the ’80s watching my mother slather bright pinks across her cheeks and perky blues over her lids,… More »

Pro Trick To Get Lips Their Darkest Aubergine

Besides all the signature zigzag prints and tribal silhouettes, the real star of Missoni’s Fall 2010 show was (for me anyway), the deep, dark eggplant-hued lips the models sported in what MAC makeup artist Lucia Peroni called “A little bit Scottish, a little Masai, a little punk.” Sounds good to me. I’m a little obsessed… More »


The Sleek Lip Show At Davidelfin

Makeup artist Gregory Arlt dubbed the Davidelfin fall 2010 beauty look the “lip show” because, as you guessed it, the makeup was all about lipstick. Most of the Davidelfin collection is black, but Gregory said he was inspired by two magenta coats, so he created a full lip to match. He first applied the Process… More »


Two-Toned Lips At Nanette Lepore

The beauty at Nanette Lepore’s fall 2010 show was inspired by women in Renaissance paintings, but makeup artist Makky’s two-toned lips look anything but old-fashioned. He applied MAC Cosmetics’ MAC PRO lipstick in Charred Red, a dark burgundy, to the bottom lip. Then, he put Odyssey, a bright fuchsia, on the top. While Makky doesn’t… More »


Would You Rock Chloe’s Super Fuchsia Lip?

We’re slightly obsessed with the statement lips Chloe Sevigny rocked at Interview magazine’s 40th anniversary party. And we’ve always loved pink hues, but we’ve never gone quite so bold. Chloe’s shade seems to be a magenta-fuchsia that’s almost purple. If you do want to try it out, here are some suggestions for purpley-pink products to… More »
