Don’t let the summer pass your face by. Benefit’s new watermelon-inspired Bella Bamba collection will leave your face glistening like a piece of ripe, summer fruit. The 3D, brightening face powder illuminates cheekbones with shimmering gold undertones. It goes perfect with a tan, if you’ve found a way to acquire one. Or if you’re more of an indoors type of girl who fears sunburns (holler!), it creates the illusion of a summer glow. Pair with the sheer, scented lip gloss for a look that says “I’ve been sitting on the beach sipping fruity cocktails all day.” Which is a look worth aspiring to when you’ve actually been sitting in front of your computer sipping coffee all day. Ah, the magic of makeup. [$28 (blush) and $16 (gloss), Benefit]

Is this really happening? Have I stepped into a warped alternate reality in which Yves Saint Laurent (or shall I say, Saint Laurent Paris) deigns itself to something … low-budget? Even a little bit … tacky? I’ll break the news to you, very slowly, and keep quiet now so we don’t have poor Yves rolling in his grave. In a shocking move, given the prestige nature of the brand overall, the beauty range (my favorite of YSL’s offerings and, rather appropriately, the only one I can afford) of the Parisian fashion house is going public with their love of Facebook. So public, in fact, that they’re willing to put it in writing — which they did, on the packaging of an exclusive new eyeshadow palette called “Devoted To Fans.” Keep reading »

My friend Aileen and I popped into Sephora a couple weeks ago so I could grab a new face powder, and of course we ended up staying for two hours and testing every single product and fragrance in the store. When our epic cosmetic journey brought us to the NARS section, I spotted their new blush, modestly titled, “Super Orgasm,” and laughed. Their “Orgasm” has been hugely popular for years thanks to the claim that it mimics the natural flush of a woman’s cheeks post-orgasm. “What the hell is a Super Orgasm?” I asked as I swiped some on my cheek. Then I looked in the mirror, stopped asking questions, and spent 30 bucks on blush (which I have totally never done before). Here’s why…. Keep reading »

Love It Or Leave It: Ombre Lips

One of the biggest trends in makeup application right now is ombre lips, in which lipstick is applied so that the color goes from dark to light, just as ombre hair is dark at the roots and light at the ends. Clicking around the web, it’s clear that people are wearing ombre lips in a variety of ways, some putting the lighter shade in the center of the lip, while the more daring leave a dark berry stain in the center and a lighter color around the lip line. Of the latter, which I think looks like your sucked on a ring pop for 20 hours, Jessica is especially not a fan. She thinks it looks like you have a dirty mouth. I think it’s kind of cool, so I gave it a shot but it just didn’t not work on my sad, thin lips. Oh wellz.

I guess when you are middling famous you pretty much get to do anything that you want. Even if you are, say, Mischa Barton, who was last relevant some five years ago. I mean, it makes sense: I just found out that 50 Cent got to star in a movie with Robert DeNiro, which is equally as implausible as Mischa Barton having her own line of lip gloss. Because why? Who said, “You know, I’d really like to commemorate my fave lanky pseudo-lesbian from ‘The O.C.’ Marissa Cooper with her very own line of lip crap?”

Nobody. But alas, the Mischa Barton lip gloss empire was still birthed. Keep reading »
