Never Say “Pore Me!” Again

Huge pores. A lot of us have got ‘em, but they’re not always something we want share with the world. Thank the beauty gods for Benefit’s POREfessional, a translucent balm that minimizes the appearance of pores. Gently rub it over your T-zone, on your chin, your cheeks, and anywhere else where you’d love to see smoother skin. POREfessional is oil-free and goes on under makeup without any fuss. You’ll never be crying, “Oh, poor me, my pores!” again!

When Sephora sent me their Moonshadow Baked Eye Palette  to test, I was concerned. First of all, there’s lots of sparkles. As much as I love a sparkly highlighter to fake cheekbones in my big ol’ chipmunk cheeks, I stopped wearing glitter on my eyes around, oh, age 17. Sparkly-ness is not something I look for in an eyeshadow. This picture from Sephora.com doesn’t accurately portray just how glittery these shadows are, but trust me, they’re shimmery. 

Second of all, that cobalt blue shadow scared the crap out of me. Keep reading »

You know what we miss the most about Jane magazine (other than all of Jane magazine)? The makeunders. The mag would pull some woman off the street, snatch the black eyeliner out of her hands, and do her up in a more subtle makeup look using fewer products. Now the ladies of xoJane.com, where editor Jane Pratt has landed, have gifted Sammi Giancola from “Jersey Shore” a makeunder and day-um girl. Sammi’s always been really pretty, but her xoJane makeunder really lets her natural beauty shine through. The makeup artist hired by xoJane only used five beauty products and took no longer than five minutes to make her up. I like! Lay off the tanning beds and flatirons for awhile, Sammi, pretty please?

  • Uh oh. A group called the National Advertising Division has accused CoverGirl of Photoshopping Taylor Swift’s NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara ad to the high heavens, enhancing Swift’s lashes postproduction in a way that portrays the product inaccurately. Proctor & Gamble will reportedly discontinue using that particular campaign. It’s never good news when an ad campaign for makeup gets called out for excessive fakery! [Styleite]

Olivia Wilde Says A Strong Lip Makes Her Look Like A “Tranny”

“A strong eye and a strong lip is hard for my face. I can go tranny really fast. It’s true, because I have a really strong jaw. So for me, I just have to be cognizant of the way that it transforms my face.”

– Olivia Wilde deploys a controversial word choice while talking beauty and makeup with Stylelist. I can’t fault Olivia as I don’t think she means any harm or offense by using the word “tranny,” but judging by the backlash that other stars, like Kim Kardashian and Sofia Vergara, have received for the same comment she should probably brace herself.
