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 […]

Best Beauty of 2012: And the Award Goes to…

Beauty products are like tech products – they just get better and more effective every year. I mean did you know that CC cream is already a thing? I feel like BB just made her first appearance! Some beauty buys can be trendy (dark ‘90s lip liner hasn’t aged so well), but these top choices […]

By Terry Or de Rose Baume Precieux: Rose Gold

By Terry already has hands down the best lipgloss, so if you’re an addict (at least I can admit it!), then you’ll want to step up your game with her Or de Rose – a gloss made with real 24 carat pink gold specks! Yes, this might sound like decadence for decadence’s sake, but it’s […]

Teen Gift Guide: Teenage Dreams

I love holiday shopping for the teens in my family! When you’re young and beginning to experiment with beauty, it’s the most fun. Bright colors and high shine glosses are king. Teens aren’t as concerned yet with preventative beauty like moisturizers or eye creams, and although it’s great to encourage that foresight, what they’ll thank […]

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 […]

By Terry Terrybly Shine Lipgloss: Terribly Wonderful

I love bright, shimmery lipgloss, but so many of the ones available leave you a sticky, utterly unkissable mess. I got the By Terry Terrybly Shine lipgloss because I needed a richer festive hue for the season, and the truth is that it’s far from terrible! The French beauty brand offers saturated color without a […]

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 […]
