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 blush, modestly titled, “Super Orgasm,” and laughed. Their “Orgasm” has been hugely popular for years thanks to the claim that it mimics the natural flush of a woman’s cheeks post-orgasm. “What the hell is a Super Orgasm?” I asked as I swiped some on my cheek. Then I looked in the mirror, stopped asking questions, and spent 30 bucks on blush (which I have totally never done before). Here’s why…. Keep reading »

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? All signs point to yes, because the fashion visionary has snagged a deal with Sephora to formulate his debut cosmetics collection alongside the über-popular beauty chain. Keep reading »

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 up on mascara entirely until a Fairydrops wand landed on my desk. Not only is Fairydrops water- and sweat-resistant so it doesn’t rub off on my upper cheeks, but it’s gel-like texture doesn’t flake. Ever. I can’t believe how much better it is from other mascaras I’ve worn all my life. Go figure it was invented in Japan! I had never head of Fairydrops before, but consider me a new convert their mascara.

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 in an eyeshadow. This picture from Sephora.com doesn’t accurately portray just how glittery these shadows are, but trust me, they’re shimmery. 

Second of all, that cobalt blue shadow scared the crap out of me. Keep reading »

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 awesomely cool thing Sephora employees (the “cast” of the store) have that nobody else will be able to get their grimy little fingers on: staff uniforms designs by Prabal Gurung.
