Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tints: Crayon Craze

I’ve always been able to keep my morning routine to a cool 3 minutes thanks to shadow sticks. My grandmother used to let me play with hers in the ‘70s when they were slick like oil pastels and would smudge (I used them on my Barbies!). And this is why shadow sticks are popular – […]

Estee Lauder Pure Color Pretty Naughty Collection

It’s kind of funny to me that Estee Lauder’s Spring 2013 collection is called Pretty Naughty because Lauder is one of the last brands I think of when it comes to naughty – hence the double entendre with “pretty” I presume. The brand’s take on naughty is just up my alley because it balances soft […]

Laura Mercier Arabesque Collection: Ballet Beauty

After the harsh neon hues of late, this is a welcome change! A new year calls for a fresh start, and Laura Mercier’s limited edition Arabesque Collection is just that. The products are light and airy, just the way I like my makeup, and will flatter your face as it is, rather than try to […]

Anne Hathaway x Chanel: Flawlessly Fantine-tastic

Anne Hathaway may have lost 25 pounds to play dying prostitute Fantine in Les Misérables, but on the film’s red carpet she was fresh faced and gorgeous! Even her short-cropped hair has a perfect healthy shine. Yes, she’s a bit smug, but she has every right to be, even though it’s highly irritating at times. […]

Dolce & Gabbana Animalier

I nearly toppled over with excitement when I received a delivery with the above cougar-licious box of Dolce & Gabbana beauty goodies. The leopard print is an instant mood booster and the colors in the new makeup collection are in line with my current penchant for neutrals. The Eyeshadow Quad in Desert ($67) is my […]

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 […]

Holiday Palettes: Which Pack Will You Pick?

Holiday palettes are one of my favorite wintertime indulgences. All of your necessities packed neatly into a little box! The warm, decadent colors get me into the spirit of the season (it’s just too soon for Christmas music, so these will have to do!). With all of the holiday rocking I plan to do, I’ll […]

Aerin Effortless Beauty: Holiday Cheer

One of the best new beauty brands to hit the counters is from none other than Estee Lauder’s granddaughter, Aerin Lauder. As Aerin often says, she’s been in the beauty business since she was born, so it was natural that she’d launch her own line! I had a chance to preview Aerin Effortless Beauty’s new holiday […]

Tom Ford Beauty Eye Color Quad: Violet Dusk, New Awakening

I was doing a purple eye all summer long and I still love it so much, I’m ready to step it up for fall. It’s time to go darker and deeper. Enter Tom Ford! His eye shadows are super-saturated so you get a very dramatic look if you want (or just lighten your touch for […]
