Being as pale as I am, tanning can be a trying pastime. Between choosing the wrong color and the usual awful self-tanner smell, I rather get my teeth pulled (I might be embellishing on that comparison). But Jergens, however, has changed the rules of the self-tanning game.
Jergens Natural Glow +Protect Daily Moisturizer Sunscreen SPF 20 ($8.69) gives you exactly that: a natural glow. My skintone doesn’t tan easily, and most self-tanners have to be layered for me to get a good shade. Natural Glow in Medium to Tan gave me …
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 …
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 …
“The Paranormal Collection was inspired by unbridled kinetic energy, spectral light and transcendental emotional forces. The things we can’t explain, that we can only feel, the place between dreams and reality: the door of perception is open and is beckoning you through, step to the light!” — Alex Box, Illamasqua Creative Director
Available April 30th, this collection for Summer ’13 at first glance made me wonder, “Can someone my age wear this?” Bright neons, fuchsias , limes and pinks? Illamasqua has a way of making the latest shades for every woman. Including …
I am a native New Jerseyan, and not being sure that the Jersey Shore will be up and running this summer makes me sad. However, this new Revlon Pacific Coast Collection by Gucci Westman brings the shore to me! All of the shades are exotic and beachy, bringing faces around the world an island vibe!
The products in this collection include two Colorstay 16 Hour Eye Shadow ($7.49), Colorburst Lip Butter ($7.49), Colorstay Longwear Nail Enamel ($7.99), Baby Stick For Lips and Cheeks ($8.99) and Colorstay Crème Gel Eyeliner in White …
For as long as I have been getting my nails done, I can remember seeing CND (Creative Nail Design) products on my glamorous technician’s desk. They always smell good, look pretty and most importantly, get the job done.
Two of their best-selling products I have the pleasure of reviewing is their coveted Solar Oil ($7.50) and Cucumber Heel Therapy ($15.00). Solar Oil is one of my all-time favorite products. What is Solar Oil, you might ask? Its a synergistic blend of naturally light oils, which deliver INTENSE therapy for dry and …
I get giddy when I get Mally Beauty products to try. Her products are so pretty, yet effective. They go above and beyond the call of cosmetic duty. This month, I have the pleasure of bringing to you her latest offering in the concealer category: Pro-Tricks Correct and Conceal Palette ($40.00; on sale now at QVC).
Pro-Tricks Correct and Conceal Palette comes with three shades to help you do battle on your face; Mally likes to call her concealers “war paint”. Sometimes in the morning, I feel like I’m going to …
Want to be a tribal goddess this spring? Laura Mercier has conjured up the Folklore Collection that evokes Talitha Getty lounging in a gorgeous caftan in Morocco on holiday in the ’70s. Grab your scarf and join me as I show you three products to get your socialite groove on!
First in the collection are the Illuminating Eye Colours ($24.00) that come in three shades: Fire Glow (pictured), a gorgeous coppery shade; Sun Glow, a gilded gold which is perfect for brightening the lid (pictured) and Earth Glow, a …
Careless Whisper, Groove Is In The Heart, Moon Rendezvous… Names of 80′s songs? Yes. But, they are also the names of Deborah Lippmann‘s latest shades, which make me pine for days of yore.
Romantic Rapture is a collection of three gorgeous shades which includes Moon Rendezvous, a faded slate-blue — think the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz; Careless Whisper, a shimmery nude — the perfect color to wear while drinking champagne with George Michael on a yacht somewhere glamorous. And, my favorite, Groove Is In the Heart, a bright, …
Rimmel’s Scandal Eyes Show Off ($6.99) is definitely one of the better mascaras from drugstores as of late. Rimmel is always at the cutting edge of both trend and function.
This mascara is different due to its brush and the deep, black pigment in the formula. What sets this product apart from others in the mass market is the unique ball shape at the end of the wand. This ball shape claims to give a clump-free look to your lashes.
As I applied the mascara to myself, I would have to agree; …
