Like most women, I have 312 bottles of nail polish knocking around my apartment at any given moment. When a package of spring beauty products from Laura Mercier arrived at the office, I had mixed emotions when Sophie handed me a bright lavender nail polish called Reckless: Yay, pretty, expensive nail polish!!!!! and also Oh, I alreadyREAD MORE »

Normally I’m pretty against plastic surgery, but I would not say no to a total January Jones Face Transfusion. Look at her face. It’s so pretty. Sigh. Science has obviously not gotten to a point where we can steal celebrity faces for ourselves, and I don’t know that January would be down for such a thing anyway,… READ MORE »

As I get older, the ridges on my nails become more and more noticeable. Although vertical nail ridges are totally harmless, they can make at home manicures frustrating. Filing them down can weaken nails and painting over them can lead to a streaky manicure. After a long search, I have finally found a solution I… READ MORE »

In case you haven’t heard, the ’90s are back in a big way, with mixed results. I’m happy to leave hair scrunchies and clunky sandals back in middle school, but deep, rich, wine-stained lips are a ’90s beauty trend I’m happy to see come back in a big way. Kerry Washington and Margot Robbie rockedREAD MORE »

Have you ever gone into a Sephora and thought, What the hell is THAT brush for?  Why are there 50 different brushes available when I only use five or six products on my face? I have this internal conversation all the time. I am compelled to hold, caress and sometimes buy several brushes without ever… READ MORE »

I know it’s not the most mature makeup pursuit, but I’ve been searching for the perfect soft pink lipstick since I was, oh, 15. It needed to have a creamy texture, a tone that would look fabulous with a tan but wouldn’t wash me out in winter, and the color had to be perfect: not… READ MORE »

As I mentioned last week, Katie and I recently got the opportunity to meet makeup expert Sonia Kashuk to discuss her new collection of affordable makeup for Target. One of the items that caught my curiosity was the Pearlescence Longwear Crème Shadow. Like many of Sonia’s products we chose to try for Beauty Test Drive,… READ MORE »

Katie and I received the opportunity to meet makeup expert Sonia Kashuk to discuss her new collection for Target. One of the products Sonia was most excited to share was her new Dewy Luxe Lip & Cheek Balm. We both decided to test it for this Beauty Test Drive. … READ MORE »

Jessica and I are the office powder foundation enthusiasts, so when she received Benefit’s Bigger Than BB Big Easy Liquid-to-Powder foundation she quickly handed me a sample.  Let me start by stating, I haven’t worn liquid foundation regularly in over eight years. Just the idea of liquid foundation makes my face scrunch up, but I… READ MORE »

The other day, I was talking to my friend Lauren about ethical fashion and being more conscious consumers (because we’re exactly the kind of nerds who can talk about this topic for hours), and she said something that totally resonated with me: “Once you commit to being a more ethical consumer, it spills over into… READ MORE »

Some women never leave the house without lipstick. I never leave the house without eyebrows. Many assumed my eyebrows are so sparse because of over-plucking, but in reality they just never grew in.  This is it. Some women (like Whoopi Goldberg) simply go without and others (like Miley Cyrus) conceal them. I like to fill… READ MORE »

My pale, winter skin had set in, and I needed to update my go-to concealer for a lighter shade. Instead of purchasing the same solution, I opted to try the well-reviewed Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer. This product claims to nourish skin with jojoba and honey, while providing waterproof, crease proof, and transfer resistant coverage. READ MORE »

I’m not a lipstick person. Not in the slightest. For the most part, avoiding lipstick is due to my enormous fear that it’s going to smear all over my face or my teeth. I’ve seen it happen to too many women and my second-hand embarrassment for them has scared me away from wearing lipstick in… READ MORE »

I’d seen a million ads for Julep.com on my Facebook or various clothing and beauty sites and they always caught my eye. There’d be pictures of nail polishes in cute colors and something about getting a new box every month. Fun! I live on a budget, though, so I always quelled my desire to join. READ MORE »

Over the holidays, I finally saw “American Hustle,” starring Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, and Jennifer Lawrence. Depending on who you ask, the movie is either THE BEST OF THE YEAR or a complete disaster. Or, if you were to ask me, I would tell you that the movie is okay, but worth seeing… READ MORE »
