Beauty Test Drive: Sephora’s Express Self-Tanning Kit For Face And Body (Video!)

You know who I blame for my never-ending pursuit of the perfect tan? Francine Pascal. The author behind the widely popular ’80s teen/tween book series, Sweet Valley High, instilled me with the belief that to be beautiful meant I needed to be bronzed.

Help Me Find A Natural-Looking Self-Tanner That’s Right For My Fair Skin! (Snooki And John Travolta Need Not Apply)

I wouldn’t know if I could tan naturally because I’ve never actually tried. Aside from the fact that, you know, the sun wants to give you cancer and shit, I’m just not someone who has ever liked to bask outside and broil. My brother and I, unlike our medium-skinned parents and the rest of our…

What Kind Of Person Purchases Snooki Self-Tanner?

You’re a smart lady (or dude). You’re on the market for some self-tanner. Do you buy the typical Neutrogena stuff in the respectable bottle, sans glitter, sparkles or neon warnings?

Quick Tip: Use Self-Tanner On Stretch Marks

As you’re all well aware, it’s swimsuit season. We’re half happy not to have to wear much clothing when it’s about 90 degrees out, but also half annoyed at ourselves for how self-conscious we sometimes get about the jiggly bits. We’ve all got them, but sometimes the little flaws feel more daunting than they reasonably…

Lindsay Lohan’s Self-Tanner Made Me Look Like The Bloody Chick From “Psycho”

This may come as a surprise to you, but I was first hired at The Frisky as a beauty and style blogger. (This, of course, was before we realized my true calling was brainwashing the masses with my cuh-razy radicalism.) Back when I was a beauty gal, a company called Sevin Nyne sent me a…

The Deep Tan Is Officially Not Back

A recent blog post by Elle UK tells us that the deep tan is back. All we can say is ohgodno and pray that this doesn’t give an army of Snooki wannabes sanction to bronze until they’re black. So we have a proposition: Before you sit in the sun for weeks straight, or whip out…

With Lindsay Lohan’s first movie in ages, “Labor Pains,” set to debut on ABC Family in just a few weeks, things were looking up for the struggling starlet, at least besides the whole made-for-TV-movie thing.

The Best Things In Life To Fake

I am not a huge fan of “keeping it real.” Real often sucks. Where does real usually leave me? For starters: pale, too broke to afford jewelry I really want, mousy mop-topped and sleep deprived. I am not suggesting we all become cookie-cutter Barbies and I am all for embracing what nature gave us, yet…

The Most Orange, Crispy Tanning Horror Stories You’ll Ever Read

Dear Dr. Derm, forgive me for what I’m about to say.

So, yeah, “tan me” is way hotter than “pasty-and-pale me.” (And by way hotter, I’m not intimating that I’m incredibly good-looking—or even a little good-looking—it’s about that little bit of bronze that balances out my sometimes ruddy skin, makes my hair look blonder…

Amy Winehouse’s New Addiction

If you’ve seen the video of Amy Winehouse smoking from a crack pipe, you might think she would get addicted to anything — drugs, teasing hair, and, now, tanning.
