REVLON Sponsors Marchesa during NY Fashion Week Spring 2014

Beauty Trend Report: Wearable Goth

The silhouettes may have been taken in this season, but Marchesa was as Cinderella-like as ever. The clothes were inspired by a Victorian-style curiosity case, which tied into the beauty look. The focus was on the lip, as was the case at many of the major shows this season.

Beauty Trend Report: Rag & Bone’s Orange Matte Lip

When I spoke with Gucci Westman backstage at Rag & Bone she told me that this season was the first time the brand had opted for a colored lip. She was quick to point out however that the Rag & Bone girl would never wear gloss so it was kept matte and a vibrant orange was used.

Bobbi + Katie Collection: Beauty to Go

Two of my favorite ladies have come together for one great capsule collection! What’s not to love? Even though Bobbi Brown’s company has been in business for more than 20 years, Katie Holmes is the first celebrity to act as its face. This makes sense – quality products like Bobbi’s need no endorsement. The collaboration with Katie came about organically.

Tom Ford Beauty Fall 2013 Color Collection

Just looking at the picture above has me jumping in my skin with excitement. Tom Fordicon reminds me of why I love makeup so much. He knows that it’s about more than just color. The texture and packaging have to be as immaculate, and he has managed to far and away always exceed expectations – and I’d venture to guess that anyone who thinks that sounds over-the-top hasn’t been to a Tom Ford Beauty counter!

Why You Might Be Eating Metal And What To Do About It

The NYTimes recently published a very interesting story on lipsticks – and by interesting I mean I’m thanking my lucky stars that I usually opt for Blistex instead of a color product. We’ve long heard that some lipsticks have lead in them – lead has been associated with a slew of ailments including infertility, learning and behavior disorders, seizures, and even death, and that’s exactly why it’s been banned from products we’re exposed to everyday like paint.
