NARS Larger Than Life Longwear Eyeliner: Keep Your Eyes Peeled

Here’s a situation where the formula of a product is basically perfection, but the execution poses some problems. Promising 12 hours of wear, NARS’ new Larger Than Life Longwear eyeliner definitely lasts at least half that long, sans smearing, and that’s not half bad. Before it sets, you can smudge it to your heart’s content, […]

Best of Haute Couture Beauty: Chanel Sweetens the Deal

It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that my award for best in haute couture show goes to Chanel’s sweet yet strong faces. Their Creative Director, Peter Philips, rarely disappoints, and for the vintage-inspired collection, glimmering with sparkly tights, metallic silver-woven tweeds, and dégradé sequins, he delivered beauty to match the grounded-meets-ethereal feel. While […]

Steal the Look: Stella McCartney Resort 2013 Runway

In fashion, the word “cool” is about as overused as a beloved Céline luggage tote. But, really, you just don’t get much cooler than a Stella girl. Case in point, the dewy, pretty-rebel faces of the ladies who just modeled McCartney’s Resort 2013 collection. Makeup artist Jeanine Lobell amped up the designer’s trademark fresh, undone […]

Laura Mercier Cinema Noir Collection: Fall for this Femme Fatale

Deep, dark, and naturally tantalizing. With drop-dead black at the forefront of Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 trends, it is only to be expected that film noir makeup would follow suite. Exploring the sultry era of 1940s Hollywood, Laura Mercier nails the trend with her latest collection. Cinema Noir is inspired by hard-edged yet feminine stars like Ingrid […]

Buxom Pen & Ink Long-Last Eyeliner: Through Thick and Thin

After trying every liquid eyeliner known to snob, from Lancôme’s Artliner to Stila’s Stay All Day to Make Up For Ever’s Aqua to Dior’s Style (and the list goes on), I’m shocked to say Buxom is the brand that takes the cake. I am OBSESSED with this liner. Honestly, there’s nothing else like it. Waterproof […]

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner: At Long Last

I don’t like to bring along extra makeup products if I don’t have to. It doesn’t really matter if I’m carrying a baby-scale minaudiere or a super-roomy tote (although, at least the tote gives you the option), I say the less clutter, the better. That’s why I’m a fan of the stuff that doesn’t require […]
