When I told my young children that I was about to try a moisturizer infused with GENUINE GOLD, they began to “ohh” and “ahh” at the concept. I received the Oro Gold 24K Vitamin C Facial Booster Serum ($198.00) and 24K Deep Day Moisturizer Cream ($28.00), as a “Hot Stuff Giveaway” gift for audience members at the Wendy Williams Show.
Although I am a tad skeptical by nature, I left the show excited to try a product that combines the purest form of a most-treasured mineral with vitamins E & C. …
Having reviewed Stila’s Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Snow last year, I started using the same eyeliner in Carbon Black, too — as it made a precise line very easily and never smudged nor feathered and was also long-wearing. I could go thick or thin, and I loved the felt tip’s cool touch when applying the color on my upper lash line.
This year, everyone went mad-crazy over both the Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner and Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner ($20.00) in Turquoise, making it very …
I have always been obsessed with the ‘50s and ‘60s glamour icons Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly…The list goes on and on. I never quite felt comfortable with bright red lips.
Since I’m not blonde, I didn’t quite like bright pinks either. Tomato reds, corals — that is where I found my comfort zone. When I discovered these glamour queens of old, I felt like I had acquired a different beauty look.
I’ve compiled a list of the ultimate glamazon-inspired lip shades! These shades range from the palest …

Mineral cosmetics are a big deal in the beauty industry these days, and many companies are working their hardest to provide mineral-based products that will suit the needs of their consumers. Gabriel Cosmetics has taken part in this revolution by including eye and lip primers as a part of their April 2013 Gabriel Color line.
The Eye Primer ($13.55) is said to be soft, smooth and creamy with a formula that evens the skintone and makes the eyelid a blank canvas to prep for the color you apply. The formula is made …
Seems that nowadays women crave full, luscious lips! Well, I remember growing up hating mine — the taunts, jokes (bubba lips, liver lips – you name it, I heard it!)… Well, look who’s laughing now!
One thing I do know (aside from curls) is lips! Thanks to Angelina Jolie, I’ve learned not to be ashamed but to actually love and play up my lovely feature — and embrace my plunger pucker! I decided to check out EnvyDerm Lip Volumizing and Conditioning Plumper ($28.00 5.5 ml; available in 10 colors), which …

I am beyond thrilled this spring! Bobbi Brown has relaunched her Sheer Lip Color ($24.00) range. Back when I was at the counter, I always championed this formula: it was easy-to-wear, the shades were amazing and it lasted forever. And then the inevitable happened: it was discontinued. My heart sank. No Bare Stain, no Pinkberry Stain. I was so sad.
Well, this spring we can all rejoice! The Sheer Lip Color range has been revamped and reshaped. I was happy that the texture is the same: it’s a semi-matte, but has …
Now, get ready for RiRi Woo ($15.00) – M·A·C‘s cult classic shade Ruby Woo remixed by Rihanna herself. Exclusively online only (see here for the >> preview post).
RiRi Woo is a “retro matte,” blue-toned red — and it is VERY MATTE, almost looks powdery on lips. Your lips may feel dry due to it being “so matte,” but it’s definitely the truest red I’ve come across!
It gives you that “retro/pin-up” look. I used zero lip balm (wish I did) and my lips looked FLAWLESS! This lipstick will definitely have you pulling off notice-me-lips …
