Le Métier de Beauté Loose Powder: Light as Air

My skin always looks shiny. I prefer to call it glow-y, but peeking at photos of myself, I can see that it doesn’t really work on camera (or off for that matter, my boy always asks me why I look “oily”). I’m anti-powder, though, since it always seems to settle into your little lines and […]

Bobbi Brown Finishing Powder: Look on the Bright Side

Don’t even think about starting the new year without your brightest and best face. Only Bobbi can make you glow without leaving you glittery and over-the-top like a stage performer. It’s great to have a brightener in the winter when your skin is at its dimmest (and sometimes, reddest!). This Porcelain Pale shade from the […]

Bobbi Brown: Holiday Spice and Everything Nice

‘Scuse the smudge marks on my Bobbi Brown products! I get so excited when the mailman brings me new goodies that I rip them open immediately to play (even if it’s 10 p.m. and time for bed). Seriously, it’s like Christmas morning! I have to say this is by far one of my favorite BB […]

I’m on the go most days and I don’t let myself go more than 90 minutes without lathering on SPF when it’s sunny out so I’m grateful that powder sunscreen has become increasingly popular. Colorescience has a great lightweight, sheer mineral powder with broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection ($50). It comes in SPF 30 and 50 and […]

Prescriptives is Back!

  Every so often I’ll get invited to an event where I’m asked to sign a document saying I won’t write about the products/information discussed until a certain date, but until an Estee Lauder event I attended last night I had never been invited to one where I was told that the brand it was […]

Givenchy Limited Edition Holiday 2011

I love sparkles (especially for holiday!), but there’s a fine line between glowingly sparkling and Jersey Shore-worthy. Even when I highlight my face and body I want the sparkles to be subtle so it doesn’t actually look like I’ve added sparkle, but rather just that I have healthy, glowing skin. L’Or Céleste Starry Loose Powder […]

Estee Lauder Launches Pure Color Modern Mercury

I’ve met Tom Pecheux on a few occasions and he’s awesome. Not only does he have impeccable taste and a knack for being ahead of beauty trends (he was the mastermind behind the orange eye look at Derek Lam’s S/S 2011 show, which set off the orange beauty trend), but he’s honest and funny (ie, […]
