Frugal Snob: Whole Foods Beauty

When it comes to shopping for beauty products Whole Foods might be one of the most overlooked resources. I for one am in a Whole Foods almost every week and the beauty section ususally doesn’t register in my head till I’m on line to pay and see it out of the corner of my eye! […]

New Sally Hansen Launches: Winners and Losers

The other week I headed over to L’Olivier Floral Atelier, a floral oasis in the Meatpacking District (oasis in the MPD? Yes! Complete with a zen garden…), to check-out all the new Sally Hansen launches. I’ll admit that surrounded by a slew of gorgeous floral arrangements it was a bit hard to focus on the […]

Frugal Snob: Almay Oil-Free Makeup Eraser Sticks

It’s not that I’ve never seen something like these just launched Almay Oil-Free Makeup Eraser Sticks before, it’s that I’ve never seen them at such an awesome price. At just $5.50 they’re about 1/3 of the price of ModelCo’s Eye Liquid Buds and just as effective. If you’ve never seen something like this before, basically […]

Frugal Snob: Pixi Succulent Lip Twin

It’s bad enough that we don’t have a Neiman Marcus here in Manhattan, but no Target?? I know, I know we DO have Bergdorf Goodman and there is a Target all the way in the boonies on 117th, but I’m not going to count that one because it’s, well, in the boonies! Seriously if someone […]

Wet Paint Nail Glase System

By New York City standards I have a pretty spacious apartment. I have room for a dishwasher, a dining table, three huge closets, shelves for way too many beauty products, books, DVDs, etc. I even have a terrace with a grill! This may not seem like anything special, but those of you who live in […]

Elizabeth Arden’s Spring/Summer 2011 Launches

I’m always surprised at how relatively affordable Elizabeth Arden is. Maybe it’s because growing up I often passed their Red Door Spa, which looked so glam to me as a kid, but in my head they’re way more luxurious than their prices would suggest. The one place the brand is lacking, in my opinion, is […]

Frugal Snob: Dr. Hauschka Daily Body Care Kit

I planned my trip to India to attend one of my friend’s wedding, but I’ve wanted to go for years. Not only is much of the jewelry that comes from here gorgeous, but I’m very into holistic body care and alternative medicine. I’m so excited to go to Kerala, which is the last stop on […]

Frugal Snob: Crazy Rumors Vegan Lip Balms

I can’t imagine the stress that comes with Christmas! Hanukkah is mostly for children and unlike Christmas where everyone gets gifts for everyone, most Jewish people only give gifts to their young children. That said, at least in my family, growing up my brother and I got gifts on every one of the eight nights […]
