Being that I had such a ball with both the Chalkboard and Very Colourfoil Manicure Sets from Ciaté, I actually requested to try out this new Corrupted Neons Manicure Set ($25.00)!
My daughter and I tend to write words with invisible ink like Trust, Faith, etc. on our inner arms, so I already had a black light to see the glowing effect!
Hot neon shades by day light up the night, with the corrupted top coat allowing the polish to glow under UV lights. I know other companies have created cosmetics to …
We’ve all seen the articles last month on sun tanning and skin safety. What many people forget is the major importance of eye health. Sun damage also leads to those unsightly crow’s feet and wrinkles, ladies (believe that!).
Ever thought about drinking your wrinkles, crow’s feet away? Learn about the Nectar Hydrolyzed Collagen Drink —> HERE!
Since my teen years, I have been a huge fan of sunglasses; I feel that they are a major accessory that makes quite the fashion statement. I never leave home without them. Even if it’s raining, …

I love when a cosmetic palette comes with suggested instructions on where to place their colors! I find that so very helpful and even if you use the colors any which way you’d like to, at least you know one was created for an overall base, another for the crease, another to be used as a highlighter, etc. Lancôme Paris Color Design Eye Brightening All-In-One 5 Shadow & Liner Palettes ($49.00) do just that!
Not only can these shadows be applied wet or dry, but they are formulated with vitamin E, …

The 85th Annual Academy Awards spared no expense showcasing some fabulous makeup and hairstyle trends. Here at BeautyStat, we couldn’t get enough of Old Hollywood glam with perfectly wavy hair, authentic side parts, and, most of all, Charlize Theron’s adorable pixie cut and Anne Hathaway’s full-on fringe!
Our very own Erin Sutera tells us which cosmetics to use to get the makeup looks of Jessica Chastain and Reese Witherspoon. Read on to find out how to recreate the night’s best hair and makeup looks at home. Look red carpet-ready every day …
It was inevitable that Essie would come out with their own nail appliques/stickers (shown in So Haute! above). Nail art is bigger than ever, and I truly wondered why Essie had not done these when Sally Hansen introduced their Salon Effects (yes, my obsession!) — I do believe Essie waited to find the right time to launch.
Once, a fellow BeautyStat writer e-mailed me a pic from her local drugstore showcasing the new Essie’s Sleek Stick Collection. I felt my adrenaline pumping faster and faster! I knew I had to get my hands …

Although Miss Kelly Osbourne decided to go gray via hair coloring, there are plenty of beauties out there that are letting their own natural hair sparkle and shine…

There’s something to be said about seeing natural gray-silver, uncolored hair. For the second time in my life, I actually stopped a woman to let her know how very gorgeous I thought her hair was.
At first, she didn’t realize what I was saying, but I continued to tell her how much I loved …
Meeting Essie Weingarten, founder of Essie, back in September was a real treat for me — we got along beautifully. There was a time that I remember only seeing Essie‘s polishes in most salons and spas, and have always admired her clean ad campaigns and the catchy names of her polishes.

Since being bought by L’Oréal a few years back, I had hoped the company would keep Essie polishes as they were… and, sure enough, they did! The brand Essie is still everywhere I go and her campaigns are as witty …
Autumn leaves have started to fall. Calm winds gently creep in and so does the cold weather, resulting in dry, cracked skin and nails. So, as I was unpacking my woolen clothes and warm socks a couple of days ago, I looked at my hands: dry and chapped nails? Many of us face the same problem. With loss of moisture our nails get dry and dull, lose their luster and shine and get brittle, too. There are lots of products out there likely to give you harder and stronger nails, …
