Finally, Tweezers With Technological Help

Every once in a while, I get my eyebrows professionally threaded. But for the most part, I tweeze. Because I’m lazy, and also anxiety-prone and ripping out eyebrow hairs feels somehow calming. But most tweezers? Totally ineffectual. It’s so hard to see the hairs! But not anymore. Revlon finally put two and two together and…

Beauty Test Drive: Revlon Balm Stain

I am very possibly a lip beauty product hoarder. Alas, that is not what we are here to discuss.

I’d long admired the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain at my local pharmacy, but I never felt justified in forking over $8 for yet another lip product. Then last weekend I lost my…

Beauty Test Drive: Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter

I think I’ve mentioned my love for Revlon Lip Butters a few times now, most recently in the context of my summer makeup routine, but I thought it was time to make things official and ask Lip Butter to marry me write up a full Beauty Test Drive. This awesome lip balm/lipstick hybrid is the…

Lust Vs. Must: Awesome Orange-y Red Lipstick

Coral is the color of summer. But do you want to spend a ton of money on a lipstick you’ll probably shove deep in your junk drawer once fall comes? We didn’t think so. So we’ve compared some of the most popular corals on the market. Can you tell which is the $24 lipstick and…

A Top Notch Top Coat

Having a manicure is kind of “my thing.” I very rarely have bare, unpolished nails for longer than a day or two, and my bathroom cabinet is stocked with polish colors I love. Unfortunately, “my thing” can be a bit of a pricey luxury, as getting a manicure once a week adds up! Recently, however,…

Style Stealer: What’s Black, White & Red All Over?

Earlier this week, Olivia Wilde was named Revlon’s new Global Brand Ambassador, which we imagine means she’s got to look pretty and wear Revlon around the world. Shouldn’t be too hard for Ms. Wilde, who’s one of the most gorgeous faces in Hollywood at the moment. To commemorate the occasion, she wore this polka dot…

Emma Stone And Olivia Wilde Unite In Prettiness For Revlon

Just like Gretchen in “Mean Girls” kept trying to make “fetch” happen, the world just keeps insisting that Olivia Wilde happen. And why not? She’s gorgeous, catlike and the daughter of leftist politco thinker Alexander Cockburn, so sure. Emma Stone, on the other hand, is a sparkly, keen-eyed redhead with great comic timing who yes,…

Revlon Offers Nail Polish You Can Sniff

When I was a kid, I loved those smelly markers so much that I refused to color with them for fear they would run out of scent. Obviously, they eventually dried up, but not before I forgot about them and moved on to a different obsession. Revlon hasn’t forgotten how much girls like scented product…

My First Time: The Revlon Walk For Women’s Cancers

As a busy New Yorker whose normal weeknight get-home time is 9 p.m. if not later, I’m pretty selfish about my Saturdays. There are no plans to be made before 2 p.m. — no, I can’t get to that toddler’s birthday party in Brooklyn at noon; nope, I don’t care if there’s a free yoga…

Get Rihanna’s “Military Couture” Red Lips

We weren’t so sure what to think about the “couture military” style Rihanna spoke of while filming the video for her song “Hard.” But now that we’re seeing the outfits in context, they’re not nearly as scary or horrible as we had first concluded. Rihanna can keep this style to herself, however, because…
