Take Runway to Reality: Opposites Attract at Chanel

And don’t they always when it comes to finding the fine balance for making up our faces? A strong eye requires a light lip, and vice versa, unless you want to look like an eighties-era streetwalker or a little girl who got lost in her mommy’s vanity. While the extreme raccoon eyes at the recent […]

Tangle Teezer, Original Detangling Brush: You’re Such a Teeze

I went to see my one true love yesterday: Neil Weisberg at the Neil George Salon. When it comes to hair, the man is a genius. I rolled out of bed this morning with amazing hair – he’s that good! I also came home with the Tangle Teezer brush because he told me to buy […]

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 […]

Sephora Collection’s New Double Ended Brushes

I have to preface this post by saying hands down my all-time favorite brush is Hourglass’ retractable one. It’s seriously fantastic and you can use it for everything from foundations to highlighters and blushes. That said Sephora Collection’s new double ended brushes are pretty stellar as well.

Hourglass Introduces Film Noir Lash Lacquer

Anyone I know who has tried Hourglass, loves Hourglass. Their brushes? I’m obsessed. Not only are they the perfect density (I use the $42 Retractable Foundation Brush to apply everything from powder foundation, to blush, to highlighting powder), but you don’t need to clean them that often because they’re made with PETA-friendly takelon bristles, which […]
