Tom Ford Beauty: Glow and Go!

It’s hard to find a good bronzer, especially for my Asian skin tone. Too orange, and I look like a clown. Too dark, and I look like I have a dirty face. Too golden, and I end up yellow…and don’t even get me started on the streaking that’s involved!

The 20-Second Lip

The 20-Second Lip

While statement lips are huge right now, I don’t want you guys don’t feel like I expect you to spend 20 minutes on your lip look every day. I mean, I’m just as lazy as the next person, but even if I’m going to exercise class and/or haven’t bathed or washed my hair for a while…

Three Minutes to the Perfect Pout: Fake It to Make It

A full pout is undeniably alluring (see: Angelina Jolie), but we weren’t all born with one and as we age, a loss of volume thins out the lips that we do have. No matter! With this set of products, you can fake the look and it’s all possible in just three short minutes…

Softlips

Frugal Snob: Softlips

Move over EOS because there’s a new kid in town, and his name is Softlips! I’m an EOS devotee, so it’s pure marketing that got me to try this product…couldn’t resist the name, and this product lives up.

Lips & Boys: Tom Ford Launches 50 Limited Edition Mini Lipsticks

I love clutch-size anything given the always-overstuffed status of my bags, but don’t love toting around sample size products. Leave it Tom Ford to design something miniature and totally luxe that doesn’t look flimsily sample size.
