Milan Fashion Week Spring 2015 Trend Alert: Neutral Lip

The natural trend that started in New York and continued in London was also prevalent in Milan, but it was mainly focused on the lips. A number of designers went with elaborate eye and/or hair looks, but kept the lips matte and neutral. Here’s a look at some of the standouts!

Waxing Kara: A Beekeeper’s Artisanal Beauty Line

The name of this brand, Waxing Kara, is a little bit misleading. It’s not actually some sort of at-home waxing brand…or am I the only one who thought that?!

Frugal Snob: The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Collection

The Body Shop always makes me nostalgic. I remember spending allowance money there growing up so I love that nearly two decades later they’re still alive and kicking! I will say their packaging could be a little swankier, but their new collection, Wild Argan Oil, smells so delicious I’m giving them a pass.

Japanese Brand Yu-Be Comes to the U.S.

I learned a lot of things when, in the spring, I went to Japan for two weeks, like…the women have amazing skin and take their regimens very seriously and I’m not just talking about the geisha. Unfortunately even in the major department stores most people don’t speak a lick of English so discovering new products wasn’t as easy as I hoped.

Fresh has a lot of new offerings for Summer 2014. In addition to launching their cult fave Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15 in a new shade, a bright fuchsia called Tulip, and coming out with a Sugar Lip Serum to target fine lines and wrinkles on and around lips, Fresh is launching UV protecting products.

Steal the Look: Amanda Seyfried Illuminates Cannes

Amanda Seyfried showed up to the world premiere of her new film A Million Ways to Die in the West in a butterfly-embellished Givenchy LBD. An eye-catching ensemble for sure, but I was even more taken by her flawless beauty look!

Tom Ford Beauty Summer 2014 Collection

Tom Ford Beauty Summer 2014 Collection

One of the most anticipated beauty collections every season is out and as always Tom Ford doesn’t disappoint. While it’s the face palette that has gotten the most attention, as someone who usually prefers a sheer veil of moisture on my lips rather than intense color, it’s his two new lip products that I’m most excited about.

AERIN Beauty Rose Balm

AERIN Beauty Rose Balm

I’ve been traveling a ton lately – Puerto Rico, South Beach, London, Tokyo. It’s so important for me to have multi-duty products on hand (you think NYC TSA is annoying…they are nothing compared to some of the other ones!). It’s also not a secret that airplanes zap your skin’s moisture so having a product like AERIN Beauty Rose Balm ($58) is imperative.

Moscow-Based Beauty Brand Rouge Bunny Rouge Comes Stateside

Anglo-Russian brand Rouge Bunny Rouge recently launched stateside, and I had the chance to play around with some of their products. Initially I was intrigued because it’s a Moscow-based brand, and well….I’ve never, that I’m aware of, come across a luxury makeup brand from there.
