Beauty Test Drive: Bite Luminous Creme Lipstick

In my ongoing mission to wear bold lipstick more regularly, I’ve been trying on whatever tubes of lipstick are put in front of me without much thought. When I swiped on Bite’s Luminous Creme lipstick, I fell in love. This stuff is the best.

Sephora Pulls Kat Von D’s “Celebutard” Lipstick

Kat Von D is a woman of many questionable decisions. Her latest poor life choice is not detrimental to her personal life, though: she had a lipstick in her Painted Love makeup line with Sephora called  “Celebutard.” Is it a very pretty pink-nude lipstick?  Yes. Is using the word “tard” grossly offensive to people with…

10 Things We Do Every Damn Time We Go To Sephora (Illustrated by GIFs)

Last weekend I popped into Sephora to restock my basic brown eyeliner and stumbled out hours later, hundreds of dollars poorer, with an armful of fuchsia lip gloss and a gnarly perfume hangover. The worst part? This happens every single freakin’ time I go to Sephora. I really should know better by now, but after…

Gotta Have It: Chalkboard Nail Polish Set

I literally squealed with glee when I saw this chalkboard manicure, and I was even more excited when I learned it wasn’t some exclusive runway design, but actually a nail art kit available at Sephora. You start with a matte black polish that’s like chalkboard paint for your nails (see also: Pinterest’s wet dream), the…

Benefit Wrote The Book On Flawless Complexions

What happens when you take  four best-selling skincare and makeup products and combine them in a kit that looks like a vintage hardbound book? I squeal with delight, that’s what happens, because Benefit’s new “How To Look The Best At Everything” flawless complexion kit is not only a great makeup combo, it’s adorable. For 30…

Beauty Test Drive: NARS Super Orgasm Blush

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…

Marc Jacobs’s Debut Makeup Line Is In The Works

Marc Jacobs knows women. He’s the much-loved designer who dresses and fraternizes with starlets and socialites and starred in an ad campaign for NARS, not to mention the fact that he’s a man who can rock a skirt with the best of them … but is he suited to create his very own makeup line?

Mascara That Stays Where It’s Supposed To

I’m sure everyone will empathize with my terrible, terrible problem of having such naturally long eyelashes. It’s hard, I swear! Here’s why: my eyelashes are constantly tapping against my upper cheeks and flaking. As a result, every mascara I’ve ever worn ends up giving me raccoon eyes by noon. I was almost about to give…

Beauty Test Drive: Sephora Moonshadow Baked Eye Palette

When Sephora sent me their Moonshadow Baked Eye Palette  to test, I was concerned. First of all, there’s lots of sparkles. As much as I love a sparkly highlighter to fake cheekbones in my big ol’ chipmunk cheeks, I stopped wearing glitter on my eyes around, oh, age 17. Sparkly-ness is not something I look for…

Prabal Gurung Is Designing The New Sephora Staff Uniforms

We’ve always been a little jealz of Sephora employees, mostly because they get to spend their days surrounded by all the makeup, beauty products and skincare items a girl could ever want. And, for some reason, perhaps in homage to the King of Pop, they wear only one glove. For now anyway, as there’s another…

You’ve heard this makeup rule before: You only highlight your eyes or your lips, not both … until now. Illamasqua has introduced the Colour Collision collection that basically wants you to clash in a good way.

Beauty Test Drive: Kate Walsh’s Boyfriend Fragrance

I know what you’re thinking: “Does the world really need another celebrity fragrance?” I have to admit I thought the same thing when I was invited to the launch of Kate Walsh’s Boyfriend fragrance at Sephora. But instead of paying attention to the celebrity behind the new scent and the packaging that looks way too…

The pair have teamed up with Temptu, an airbrush makeup firm which created the tattoos for the ads, to develop temporary…

Beauty Test Drive: Tarte Lip Stain

At first swipe, we had high hopes for Tarte’s Natural Lip Stain. Lust, the color we tested, had an appropriately sultry name and glided on with a practiced sort of ease, moisturizing as it went. Unfortunately, the honeymoon period soon disappeared and we were left with nothing but faint vestiges of the relationship we’d begu…
