Rihanna’s Blue Lipstick Is Beyond Hideous Yet We Can’t Look Away

Sooooo, yeah — Rihanna wore blue lipstick to enjoy a meal out at a restaurant in London, proving once again that she’s not afraid to take risks when it comes to her appearance. (Remember the red leopard print jumpsuit? Maybe it’s better if you don’t.)

I know blue makeup really isn’t anything new, but most women who dare to attempt it wear it in the form of eye shadow, eye liner, or mascara. They don’t slap it on their lips because blue lips aren’t typically associated with anything positive. Read more at The Stir…

My life has been one long epic quest for the perfect lip balm. These are my stringent requirements:

  • goopy but not sticky or waxy
  • tastes good
  • packaging which is both pretty and sturdy (I drop makeup like it’s my job)
  • most importantly, nourishes my chronically dry lips

EOS lip balms are always in my purse for on-the-go applications when I don’t want to stick my dirty fingers in a pot of lip balm. (Bacteria! Hello.) But at home, when I can wash my hands and apply thick coats of goopy lip balm with abandon, my new favorites are Mor Lip Macarons. Read on to find out why:

I’m not trying to brag here, but I get a lot of free makeup. Like, a lot. Not only is it more than enough to feed my product addiction, previously believed to be insatiable, but at this point I have so much makeup I don’t even know what to do with it anymore. Seriously, I won’t let anyone, regardless of gender, leave my home without a bag full of loot. Suffice it to say, I do not go out of my way to purchase new stuff — in fact, until yesterday, I hadn’t set foot in my old stomping grounds (the Sephora in Union Square, obvs) in god knows how long. Six months? A year, even? Practically unheard of!

When I heeded its siren call at long last, trust me when I say that I had no intention of spending any money. I didn’t even HAVE any money. What I did have was some time to kill and a tepid interest in checking out some new products and spritzing perfume on my sweaty, barely presentable self before meeting this gentleman for some guacamole. And yet! Being as it is that I am Me, and that I love Items, I could not leave empty-handed. I could never leave Sephora empty-handed; that would be a cardinal sin. But so frequently I leave with an item (or items) that I regret having purchased in record time. I haven’t even made it to the subway by the time I’m like, “Should I turn my ass around and return this right now?” This is not the case with Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Color. In fact, I think I may have fallen in love last night, and not with my dinner date. Keep reading »

I don’t know about you, but I always like to check in on my favorite former “Jersey Shore” stars. Otherwise I kind of start to worry about them, you know? Take Deena Cortese, for example — if I didn’t throw her name into my Google search bar once in a while, I’d never know what she was up to. Lo, here she is at InTouch Weekly‘s VMA after party, sporting allllllll of the makeup and what appears to be yet another brand new face. Deena, it seems, cruelly left approximately no makeup for her friend Jenni Farley to wear to the event, because JWoww is looking fresh-faced as hell! I’m not even being sarcastic like I usually am; JWoww looks great. I’m even willing to overlook her stupid glittery Princess of Party City dress, because this is really a step in the right direction. Take note, little meatball, as you embark on your new singing career.

Beauty How-To: Fake Perfect Skin With Minimal Makeup

Sit down, everybody, and let’s talk about that most elusive of all makeup looks, the majestic, seemingly intangible unicorn that is Perfect Skin. One need not be born with — nor consume only omega-3 rich fishes, avocado, and $12 green juices to acquire — perfect skin to appear as if one has perfect skin, do you follow? One need certainly not spackle on layers of HD foundation, either, because that never seems to result in perfect skin but rather “whoa, that’s a lot of makeup” skin. If your skincare routine isn’t quite up to snuff, and your diet includes more Keebler elf cookies than kale, that’s your life, your choice, bro, and it shouldn’t stand in the way of you looking like the portrait of glowing health. Isn’t makeup the best?

I had the kind of no-makeup-necessary perfect skin that strangers commented on my entire life, including the quintessential 12-15 greasy years, and then suddenly, randomly, INFURIATINGLY started developing skin probz (acne, clogged pores, oiliness, scarring, redness, whatever), like, five whole years after I foolishly assumed I would be in the clear for life. I’ve always been fairly (lol) vain, and my skin had never been something I had to worry about, but when it did become a concern, I learned pretty quickly how to fake the same flawless skin I used to wake up with. I mean, is it as good as the real thing? No, definitely not, but it’s still pretty damn good. Keep reading »
