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.

Tom Ford Lip Color Sheer Collection

Tom Ford has just launched eight new limited edition lipsticks for spring, and they come packaged in his original white and gold cases. So psyched these are back!! Especially now that the warmer weather is coming…how chic to pull out one of these lipsticks from your purse? The collection of lip shades is called Lip Color Sheer and retails for $49 each.

Best Spring Pastels

Best Spring Pastels: A Glimmer of Shimmer

Remember those pastel – or I should say, pasty – lipsticks we wore in the ninth grade? We all looked like defective Barbies with our frosty blue eye shadow and pale pink lips. Fortunately, the science behind our makeup has only improved since then, as have the trends! Today’s pastels involve just a glimmer of shimmer, rather than a chalky, unflattering consistency.

Eos Lip Balm

Eos Lip Balm: Be Mine

NYFW has finally drawn to a close. Eight days of incredible collections, but also incredibly horrible weather! To survive the brutally low temps and high winds, I had to keep my skin in tip-top shape, and that included my lips. I am somewhat of a lip balm aficionado, having used everything from nipple cream and cow udder balm (seriously) to fancy, flavored, department store versions.

Coconut Oil: It’s Not Just For The Kitchen

Despite the rise in popularity of coconut water people often have bad associations with coconuts because they think they’re high cholesterol. It’s actually one of the healthiest oils to cook with because it’s high in immunity-boosting lauric acid and it can help with nutrient absorption, digestion, and more.

Estee Lauder Derek Lam Collection

Estee Lauder Derek Lam Collection: Two for One

Two of my favorite things – bags and beauty – from one of my favorite designers. What more could I ask for??

Bobbi Brown Nude Glow Collection

Bobbi Brown Nude Glow Collection: Bright Ideas

Bobbi has a way of knowing what we need, when we need it. These frigid temperatures are giving us seriously rosy cheeks, and not in the cute, flushed way – in the patchy, blotchy mess kind of way that even the best skincare routine has trouble fighting off.

Best Beauty Products of 2013

Best Beauty Products of 2013: Top of the Line

I have an elaborate 13-step beauty routine, and while I consider all 13 of those products as personal essentials, a few stuck out from the pack as the top five of the year. So without further ado, here are the best beauty products of 2013 – the ones that I just couldn’t live without. What were yours?
