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 […]

Napoleon Perdis’ Swept Away Collection

I love NYC, but I’m not made for cold weather! If I could stomach the thought of driving and leaving my family I would have moved to California a long time ago. Meanwhile warm-weather vacations and sitting atop my heater will have to do (even if it does mean my hands are always cracking…). I […]

BeautyBlender Set

When it comes to sponge applicators, BeautyBlender is my absolute favorite. Not only does it have a bright, easy-to-spot pink color (do you other Beauty Snobs waste as much time as I do rummaging through your makeup arsenal looking for a particular item!??), but it also has a unique elliptical shape to help blend in […]

T3 Barrel Brush Large Ceramic + Tourmaline 3″

These giant brushes came inside swag bags on every seat at Derek Lam’s Spring 2011 show at Lincoln Center two weeks ago along with a set of Estee Lauder lipglosses (Derek’s sponsors, obviously).  Everyone took the Estee Lauder lipglosses out of their bags and left these brushes, me– I clutched on to mine all day […]

Hourglass Brushes

Prescriptives was one of my all-time fave beauty brands (RIP!), and among the items I always turned to them for were their brushes. While they weren’t the sleekest, their brushes were soft, yet dense and always applied the perfect amount of foundation/blush (note- you can still get some Prescriptives items online). I find that so […]
