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 […]

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 […]

Benefit Dallas Pressed Powder and Ultra-Plush Lip Gloss: Texas Hold ‘Em

One of Benefit’s many charmingly packaged pressed powders is not a just-released shade, but it is the perfect shade for the moment, as we transition out of the dog days of summer and into fall (so soon already!). This tawny, sun-kissed powder is described as the “outdoor glow for the indoor girl.” Present! Even though […]

Chanel Glossimer Vs. Maybelline ColorSensational: The Greater Gloss

You should know by now that I carry no less than half a dozen lip glosses with me at all times. Many girlfriends who go out with me don’t even bother carrying a makeup bag anymore, as they know I’ll have everything they need on hand to get through the night. One of my biggest […]

Dolce & Gabbana Lace Collection: A Soft Touch

It was only a matter of time before consistently sensual (and bustier-obsessed) Dolce & Gabbana embraced sheer lace in their cosmetic line. And it suits them as well as you would expect! While their bronzer, a super-natural formula that glides on with supreme ease, looked intimidating in a the dark leopard Animalier formula, their Sicilian […]

Steal the Look: Emma Stone Goes Light and Luminous

Sometimes it’s best to save the drama for your dress. Just ask Emma Stone, who modeled a fine balance of opulence and ease at the premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man on June 27th. Donning a structured and embellished Chanel dress, she wisely kept her face fresh and light. Her makeup artist, Rachel Goodwin, wanted it […]
