The Perfect Red Lipstick Spotted At Christian Cota!

The hunt for the ultimate red lipstick can be a lifelong endeavor. And if you ask my dear friend and beauty expert Courtney Dunlop, red lipstick is the new smoky eye. Some are too tomato-y, some too blue, orange or worse, pink. But once you've found the perfect shade of red that looks great with…

Beauty Test Drive: Trish McEvoy’s Lip Primer

I'd never heard of lip primer before I saw Trish McEvoy's sleek black tube of the stuff. Face primer? Yes. Eyelid primer? Of course. But never lip primer. Naturally, we assumed it had to be some sort of miraculous well-kept secret and became rather inquisitive. Curious enough, in fact, to waste $22 on what turned…

How To Rock (Almost) Black Lipstick

Deep, dark lipstick is something very close to my cold, black heart. I was always drawn to the look of Bohemian Paris and 1920s flappers with their stunning wine-stained pouts, which eventually carried me into a goth phase that occurred sometime back in the early-to-mid nineties. Back in those days, Revlon's Blackberry was my drug…

Add Some Punch To Your Summer Look With A Bright Lip Color

This summer is about the extremes, from the brightest colors to head-to-toe nudes. The same was true with beauty trends. It's time to say buh-bye to the black lip gloss trend of fall and winter (that never really caught on anyway) and hello to brights! Pastel pinks, hot pinks, light corals and neons are all…

Sarah Palin’s Lipstick On Your Face

Sarah Palin's lipstick has been in the spotlight ever since her speech at the Republican National Convention, where she deemed herself a lipstick-wearing hockey mom. While we're not into the frosty pink shade she covets, we hypothesized a makeup company should market a tube of Pitbull Pink. Alchemy of Colour just released Power Pink, which…

Beauty How To: Vampy Red Lips & Nails

I remember watching “Dynasty” in the '80s and thinking that Krystle and Alexis Carrington were so fantastically glam. Their glitzy, sequined dresses, shellacked hair, long, red talons and crimson lips were just IT, you know? If I saw those cats on TV today, however, I’d probably mistake them for two campy transvestites and wonder why…

Lip Gloss And The Sun Are Mortal Enemies

If you think that glossy lips and sun-kissed skin make for a good combination, you have another thing coming -- and that thing is called cancer. Most shiny lip balms and glosses don't offer protection and can even increase light penetration through the lip surface. Wear a lip sun block with an SPF of 30…
