    Source: Shutterstock It's one of those rare moments, like seeing a rainbow or finding a four-leaf clover, but I think I may have actually seen a star being born. Soon-to-be-It-Girl Odeya Rush made her red carpet debut at the premiere of her new movie The Giver last week, with an all-around glam look that I don't think will soon be forgotten. This girl may have been a relative unknown a mere few weeks ago, but I am predicting major star potential in this girl. But seriously, let's talk about that red carpet beauty! 17 year-old. Odeya absolutely killed it with this beautiful,…

At about $3.99 for a shampoo and conditioner you can't really complain, but needless to say it was not an experience I want to replicate.Read the full post L’Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair Lipidium which appeared first on Snob Essentials.

Having healthy gums is actually more important than having healthy teeth because it's easier to fix your teeth. Once your gums recede and deteriorate, all your teeth fall out.

    We were pretty convinced that we were never going to see photos from Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's secret wedding - after all, the couple is known for cherishing their privacy - but we were absolutely dying to see Angelina's hair. Her flawless bone structure was practically built to be shown off by a stunning updo. Photos finally surfaced this weekend, and while the jury is out on whether or not Brad kept his soul patch for the big day, Mrs. Jolie-Pitt definitely rocked her hair up.

    Though Labor Day may mark the unofficial end of Summer, don't say sayonara to neck-baring hairstyles just yet. Though Ariana Grande may perpetually rock a ponytail, that doesn't mean it's not a brilliant style to wear well into Autumn weather; wind, abrupt changes in humidity, and unpredictable temperatures can result in weird (and often awkward) hair incidents. Tucking your mane into a high, taut pony means fewer blunders and more guaranteed gorgeousness. Who knew that a signature look could be so functional? Click through for more Fall hair inspiration.

That's how I feel about Deborah Lippmann Maniac.Maniac is one of the colors from the Summer 2014 80's Rewind Collection. Each color is named after a song from the 80's (like Don't Stop Believin', a spectacular bright orange. Do yourself a favor and buy the entire collection, since they're all spectacular. But the one that really holds my heart is Maniac.This nail polish can best be described as an intensely bright grape creme. It yields perfect, even, opaque color in two coats.

    September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. I know there a many "awareness months" during the year, and I tend to ignore many of them because they get a lot of national attention. But this one is important to me, especially the more that I learn about it and I feel it is important to share the facts and the brands that are supporting it - as in 100%. Ovarian Cancer is named the silent killer for a reason; it has symptoms that are often mistaken for ordinary gastrointestinal symptoms. Things like bloating, gas, feeling full quickly, abdominal or pelvic pain and the need to urinate…

They will last for years and offer superior, professional results that I depend on. I have tested and tried probably hundreds of makeup brushes over the years. While I have dozens of…

    Eve Lom Radiance Lift Foundation ($60) is probably one of my most favorite high end foundations of the moment. I’m actually more of a BB Cream girl but lately I’ve been testing out a good deal of fluid and second-skin like foundations and really loving the formulas. Eve Lom Radiance Lift Foundation isn’t marketed as such a formula but the super lightweight texture provides very, very good coverage and has a smooth, weightless feel on my complexion. I love breathable coverage as I don’t need a ton of it so anything that not only looks natural but feels natural makes my…

    Charlotte Tilbury The Rock Chick Eyeshadow Quad Charlotte Tilbury The Rock Chick Eyeshadow Quad ($52.00 for 0.18 oz.) includes four shades that range from beige to taupe to dark brown. Overall, it’s a decent to good set of shades, and I think it hinges on how much you love (or loathe) glitter, because the glittery shade does have fall out issues throughout wear. It’s pretty, but you will find glittery bits all over the face by the end of the day. The darker brown shade is buildable, but it could have been more pigmented. All four shades were easy to blend and apply to the lid, and…

  • Want: Ringly Wearable Technology

    Gaia Fishler
    2 Sep 2014 | 1:13 pm
    I'm the last person in the universe who cares about wearable technology. I had a boyfriend once who kept wearing the watch/calculator from his Bar-Mitzvah way into adulthood, and that has traumatized me for life. But Ringly is bordering on genius. My phone always seems to sink into the very bottom of my purse, and since I keep the ring sound quite low (and forget to dial up when leaving the house), I tend to miss calls and not see texts for hours. This ring connects to one's phone (both iOS and Android). You customize the app to tell it whose calls or texts you want to see, and it vibrates…
  • My Current Skincare Routine

    Gaia Fishler
    2 Sep 2014 | 12:38 pm
    Apparently, the best thing I can do for my skin is avoid consuming anything made with coconut oil or coconut milk. That's very unfortunate considering my favorite dishes include coconut sticky rice and Massaman curry. It also means being extra careful with shower gels, hair products and even some makeup. It seems like this allergy is becoming worse with time, and I can't begin to tell you how frustrating it is. But the heavenly rice is less and less worth the red angry rash and breakouts. Dealing with that and helping my skin come back to life was an interesting process. I've pared down to…
  • Diana Vreeland Perfumes- First Impression

    Gaia Fishler

    Many of you shared my uneasiness about the new perfume brand bearing the name of legendary fashion editor Diana Vreeland. I still harbored a secret hope that Mrs. Vreeland's heirs did justice to her memory by creating a spectacular line. The bold colors chosen for the bottles seemed to hint in that direction, and the display at Bergdorf Goodman looked inviting. The bottles are even nicer when you see them in person. They're heavy, modern, and come with a magnetic cap that closes in a satisfying click. The boxes are just as great, so the overall design aesthetic is quite appealing. But…

    The hype and mayhem surrounding the release of Nude Dip, the new Tom Ford Eye Color Quad for Fall 2014, did little to endear the brand to me. There were teaser photos months ago that made just about everyone feverish with desire for this palette. I know that I can't help it: a super-luxurious collection in easy-to-wear everyday neutral. It's irresistible. When it's also a limited edition the madness is obvious (remember Bobbi Brown's original Chocolate palette from Fall 2006?) . And then it started to look like the palette was going to sell out during pre-sale and will never even make it…

    We all know how complicated it can get to wear colorful eyeshadow successfully. When you’re blending multiple shades together, it’s not uncommon to use five different eyeshadows for one look. Simplifying the process, colored eye pencils create almost the same pop of color but with a lot less effort. In my makeup bag is the Cargo Cosmetics Swimmables Eye Pencil in Pfeiffer Beach ($18 US), a creamy eggplant color that just works with my brown eyes. Equally nice is the budge-proof yet creamy formula, something I look for in the extreme 90 degrees plus humidity that I’m currently…

I’m a big believer in pampering myself, although it’s usually more along the lines of chocolate and a movie while painting my nails. You know what’s also amazing sometimes? A long hot shower. A little special treatment there doesn’t hurt either. I’ll be the first person to admit that I don’t exfoliate my body regularly.

    So if you've been following this blog, you have been with me through quite a bit.  A whirlwind of life changes and a couple of career changes.I started this blog in August, 2007.  Woah.  Seven years ago.  So much has happened in the last seven years.  I knew nothing about making soap when I started this blog.  I only knew that I just loved handcrafted soap and I knew that it needed to be in the spotlight.  If you didn't read this blog then, you may be interested how it all began.  You can go back to the beginning.  My first post asked people if…

    8 Jun 2014 | 4:42 pm
    I've always loved the scrubby manliness of an exfoliating bar of soap.  Something so perfect about scrubbing the dirt off my skin that makes me feel extra clean and feeling refreshed.  I think the only scrubby soap I did not care for was luffah soap.  I felt like my skin was being scraped off with razor blades.  And I like my soap rough, too.  Ground coffee, sand, volcanic rock, whatever....but you can keep your whole loofah and razors.  It's just not for me, thank you.SO I've been looking around at exfoliating soaps, loving the texture of seeing them, being that…

I was a night owl and could get by on such little sleep it could not possibly have been healthy. I would go through bouts of insomnia, but overall, I got great sleep. Not anymore!

  • Beauty Find - CLINIQUE Chubby Stick Moisturizing Cheek Colour Balm

    2 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    CLINIQUE  REALLY knows how to make a great makeup in crayon/stick form, and their newest, CLINIQUE Chubby Stick Moisturizing Cheek Colour Balm was another winner for me.The formula is smooth, oil free and while pigment rich, the finish can be used just for a subtle wash of color or completely buildable for more intensity.My favorite, face brightening shade was Rosy Poly Rosy (shown, above), a medium toned, warm pink with no shimmer.  The stick is a twist up tube, so no sharpening is needed and the blush texture is creamy, soft and featherweight.

    Hard Candy All Glossed Up Hydrating Lip Stain in Sand Castle and Fair Lady came out for summer 2014, but I think they would work really well in the fall with a smoky eye. These fatty crayon-like pencils combine both gloss and stain properties. They are shiny, slightly staining and they feel really smooth and soft going on. The have a silicone base, which is what helps with that silky feeling. You don’t ever need to sharpen them either, just twist up (or down) from the bottom. There are eight shades in all in this line which include: Cupcake (light pink) Pout (bright pink) Chic…

It blurs fine lines, helps cover pores and blemishes, and evens out your skin tone. They come in a box and that includes the compact with product/applicator inside as well as a refill of…

Taupe ($18) Taupe Taupe is a medium, cool-toned, matte shade. For me it’s just the perfect brow color, especially having lavender hair now. I definitely always look for a cool-toned…

It's a medium-weight moisturizer, and so far hasn't caused me any breakouts or rosacea (I've used it about 10x). Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery has no artificial fragrances, colors or parabens. Since it's a little bit thicker, I feel like I need to use a little more than my lighter moisturizer to get full coverage…

    Essie For The Twill of ItI'm late to the party on this one, but I finally picked up Essie's For The Twill of It and it's love. Essie doesn't do a whole lot of duochromes, so this is a pretty special color. It has a purple-grey base and shifts to purple, teal, and green with the lighting. The finish is a little frosty for my tastes, but it's not too bad. My only complaint is that I needed at least three coats (wearing three coats here) for evenness and opacity. Essie, do more duochromes! I need more duochromes and I love your brush!

They're a long, spiky style (my favorite) interspersed with short cris-cross fibers. They're much softer and more flexible than most of the similar spiky lashes I've tried so they curl easily and don't come up as easily at the edges. I love them…

    You've probably noticed that gel polishes (sometimes called no-chip polishes) are HUGE right now. They've gone from a professional-only service to being available in every drugstore.  I've never been interested in them because I just don't like wearing the same polish for more than a day or two, and with gel polishes you either have a four week commitment to a color, or you have to endure a 30+ minute removal process.But one day, as I was gazing down at my disappointingly short-lived pedicure, it dawned on me that I could use these on my toes too.  I mean, I always knew I could,…

The color is pigmented and are supremely flattering. Strip has a deep bronze shade with a hint of shimmer, a golden shimmery highlight, and a deep mauve blush that when swirled together with a fluffy brush gives you a sun-kissed look. Note: be careful when traveling as I had one that cracked and powder landed everywhere. Not sure how or why it happened but the cashier at Sephora told me the same…

    If I was sent to a desert island and I could only take one foundation to use for the rest of my life, it would be RMK’s Creamy Foundation.  There are other foundation I am hugely fond of and use in rotation but recently, with my dry, sensitive, blotchy pregnancy skin RMK has become my staple once again (used with their Creamy Primer – it lasts ALL DAY).  Anyway, it’s hard to imagine that this amazing foundation can be improved but sure enough, on September the 24th 2014, RMK will be launching Cream Foundation N, an upgraded version of the original Creamy Foundation!  The new…

    I have always had good quality disposable razors handy regardless of any other hair removal methods I’ve used (such as waxing) because there’s always times when you need to get quickly and painlessly get rid of stray hair!  Also, not everyone’s skin tolerates harsher hair removal methods (mine is very sensitive and goes red easily) and I know that with a clean, sharp razor, I won’t cause any trauma to my skin.  Disposable razors are quite fun and glam these days, and don’t look or feel cheap either. BIC Soleil disposable razors are my current go to razor.  BIC Soleil Lady has 3…
  • Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt

    When I first heard about Jo Malone’s newest fragrance, Wood Sage & Sea Salt I immediately thought…yes! I’ve always been a fan of salt. The smell of salt. The freshness of it, there’s something masculine about the combination, Wood Sage & Sea Salt yet I can imagine it working well on both genders – not everyone likes overly girly fragrances.   But how do you capture sea salt in a fragrance and not have it smell like some kind of hair product?  It’s definitely a hard one to do, but of course Jo Malone do it perfectly.  The composition of Wood Sage & Sea Salt is of…

  • Can I Use My Facial Cleanser to Remove Eye Makeup?

    Renée Rouleau
    26 Aug 2014 | 8:30 am
    I’m all for multitasking and getting more than one use out of a skin care product but when it comes to using your face cleanser to remove eye makeup and mascara, you might want to be careful with this one. Certain ingredients are appropriate for the face, but may cause irritation to the eyes which is a very sensitive area.  Avoid using a facial cleanser in the eye area if it contains: -Exfoliating beads. Particles like jojoba beads and apricot kernels work well to lift off and polish away surface dry skin cells but you certainly don’t want any of these to get into the eye. Ouch!
  • Cleansing Wipes: Are They Good to Use On Your Skin?

    18 Aug 2014 | 8:30 am
    In the past few years, cleansing wipes have become popular with people as a way to quickly and easily wipe makeup off their skin without having to deal with water or washcloths. You simply wipe and go.  While they are convenient to use, are they good to use on your face? No. I believe they are not the best choice for healthy skin. Why? Cleansing wipes don’t effectively clean the skin. Instead they just smear dirt, bacteria, oil and makeup across it. Essentially it is like applying cleanser to your face with soap and then not washing it off. The cleansing agents are designed to break…

    Don’t you hate when your face is clear and then suddenly you get what feels like a massive pimple to ruin your day?  If you want to hide it better, then there are a few suggestions to make that offending blemish more discreet.First, you might want to try masking the redness just as you would with bloodshot eyes with a drop or two of eye drops like Visine.  Believe it or not, it helps reduce the redness since it constricts the blood vessels.  The only thing I advise is to drop the eye drops on a cotton swab and dot only on the pimple instead of directly from the bottle.

    The pearl finish lightens this color a bit. Not ‘softens’...it just reflects the light while retaining a bit of tanned-orange undertones. Good for an inner-vee highlight, or a browbone highlight - especially if this happens to match or be close to your skintone. You’ll get highlighting effects that aren’t as…

  • Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future Review: Caplet Serum and Eye Gel

    Musical Houses
    2 Sep 2014 | 6:30 am
    Elizabeth Arden has launched its new Flawless Future Powered by Ceramide skincare line, and this line is actually geared towards younger women in their 20s and 30s looking to treat the first few signs of aging, as well as to keep the skin in top condition for future years (hence the "Flawless Future" tagline, I suppose!). This certainly is something a little different from what Elizabeth Arden is known for, since the brand is probably best known for its anti-aging products geared towards more mature ladies. But don't let that deter you from checking out this range, because this…

    Nothing brings out the natural wave and curl of your hair like a day at the beach. The combination of salt, heat, and humidity naturally teases and tousles your locks. If you're lucky, chance arranges these curls into something out of a swimsuit catalog. Or you might be like me. More often than not, the beach leaves me looking more like a castaway than an ocean goddess. Rather than relying on hairstyle fate, I prefer to take matters into my own hands with a simple salt-water solution made in the comfort of my kitchen. Besides, sometimes you just want to look like you went to the beach without…

    Mascara is one of those beauty categories where, more often than not, my thoughts after test-driving one are just “meh”. There are so darn many mascara launches (I swear I get sent at least 10 new ones per quarter), most so unmemorable that they all become a blur in my mind. This is why I write about mascara maybe twice, three times a year—tops. It’s just not that exciting. Every so often, however—like with Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant, MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash, and now, Lancôme Grandiôse—I find something amazing. Not “meh” AT ALL. Today I…

Their favorite roses fragrances inspired the Rose collection, with subtle and complementary scents, for every woman.” Press Sample   What woman doesn’t love roses?

    Somehow, another school year is upon us (or about to be.) In addition to school supplies, new sneakers and the hottest new clothing, parents are ramping up to figure out how to make this the most successful year ever for their kids. Did you know, though, that 'back to school' is different for boys than it is for girls? It's true and parents with sons need to pay attention. Boys are not doing so well academically these days compared to girls. School age boys represent 71% of suspensions and drop out of school at a lower rate than girls. Seventy-five percent of special education referrals…

        By Camilla Saulsbury First up: simplified spanikopita tarts. Spanikopita is a traditional Greek pastry made with phyllo pastry and a filling of spinach, eggs, feta, and a handful of aromatics. I’ve made mine easier by using puff pastry (no layering!) and have lightened the filling a bit with a few egg whites in place of whole eggs. These freeze very well at two points in the process: (1) freeze the assembled, unbaked tarts or (2) cool the baked tarts and freeze. For both freezing options, thaw at room temperature. The baked, thawed tarts can be rewarmed in a 250F oven for…

SpaRitual is a vegan brand that specializes in nail lacquers that are DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Camphor and Formaldehyde Resin.

    Hair health is a matter of biology, just like every other part of our human make-up. Staying hydrated is a must for our survival, and the same rings true for healthy hair. Much of how we style our hair removes necessary moisture for shiny, healthy hair. Heat styling with blow dyers, curling irons and flat irons change the structure of the hair and its biology. Heat changes the hydrogen bonds in our hair, which holds each strand together. Daily blow-drying and heat styling lead to breakage, damage and split ends. It’s important to give hair a break from constant styling. Let hair air dry on…

    Ever envy that one friend who’s never color-treated or damaged her hair, has natural highlights and shampoo commercial-like shine? And then you try to copy her look, only to end up with dry, over-processed hair? Of course you do. We all do! It’s time to end the color-treatment envy and damage cycle once and for all. Color treatments actually change the structure of hair, often resulting in damage and split ends. This breakdown of the hair’s biological make-up creates dry, dull strands that are more susceptible to breakage. Bleaching hair is even harsher than permanent color…

    Dry, dull and damaged hair can be a real drag. No one wants damaged locks and split ends, but it happens. And honestly, we often give our locks a beating when we try to tame it and mold it into place. Here are a few ways that we end up with dry, stringy strands. 5 Causes of Damaged Hair Tight updos – Ponytails and braids offer a great way to sweep hair off the face and to style second day hair. However, when pulled tightly and worn frequently, these styles create weak hair and breakage. Over-washing – The goal of shampooing is to cleanse the scalp from build up in hair follicles and…

  • MAC Pro Longwear Brow Set: Because Brows Are Everything

    Amy
    28 Aug 2014 | 4:43 pm
    This summer MAC released a few permanent items, including the MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set ($17 0.17 oz.). Because brows are so important, I was curious to try it. I picked up MAC’s Brow Set in Quiet Brunette, described as a “muted mid-tone gray.” This product is available at Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Macy’s and other MAC sources. I’ve been wearing this for about a week, and find that it delivers well. The brush is short, and therefore easy to control. The product is highly controllable, so a light brush through will give a light application. You just…

    Some items arrived from Tom Ford Fall 2014 late this afternoon, and so I thought I’d post some quick pictures. From all experience, this appears to be another “blink and you’ll miss them” releases. In other words, limited quantities especially for the Tom Ford Nude Dip quad.  These are the times when the relationships that we’ve formed with sales associates become invaluable. Sometimes the online releases are gone in a remarkably brief time, so call your Neiman Marcus, Saks, Nordstrom, and Bergdorf counters now if you are interested. It breaks my heart to tell…

    I picked up a few items from MAC’s A Novel Romance Collection, a large Fall collection that had a few neutrals with a twist that seemed pretty and fun. I’m going to post these pictures here quickly, rather than doing a full review which could take more time that I have before sellout. This collection is currently for sale at Nordstrom, Macy’s and Bloomingdales. This time around, the eyeshadow quads struck me as both interesting and high-quality. For the $40 price point, I found these original, pretty neutrals-with-a-twist with good pigmentation and a lovely, soft formula.

This is currently available at Yves Saint Laurent online, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, and Sephora.

Are your feet baby soft and attractive? Or, are they scaly and rough? If they are rough and scaly, do you know how to get rid of the roughness? Foot skin care easy and you can do it almost overnight. But, you need to first decide if you have rough feet from friction alone or if you have athlete’s foot that needs treatment too. What are the signs that you may have athlete’s foot?

It’s too easy to find lipsticks that apply dry and you feel like you have to drag them across your lips, leave your lips feeling like you’re stranded on a deserted island, or even worse.. fade away within the hour you apply it. I was really excited to try out Butter London’s new line of lipsticks, because the claim was the exact opposite of everything above- these claimed to be matte, super lush and moisturizing, and last. Usually matte and moisturizing don’t go hand in hand when it comes to lip products, so this was…

I’ve tried other kits that were like this, but where you had to boil the impressions mold and try to push it on to your teeth while it was really hot to kind of, sort of get a mold of your teeth. This kit is different because you actually create a real impression of your teeth, mail it back to the company, and they send you a custom made mold for your top and bottom teeth! This is…

    Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I have to say that this past weekend was probably the most productive weekend I've had in months. Did all the mundane adult things that I had to do. I mainly worked on my closet and got rid of the things that I haven't worn in years (yes, years) as I've mentioned in my previous post as part of my things to do. I'm pretty happy that I did some major progress with it. I even found things that I almost forgot that I had!CONTINUE READING →

  • Review: Aeveka Naturally Pure Skincare

    Nicole Dantzler
    26 Aug 2014 | 5:07 pm
    I recently tried several products from the Aeveka Naturally Pure Skincare line including the Refreshing Citrus Cleanser, Regenerating Night Crème and Replenishing Co-Q10 Eye Crème. This is an all natural skin care line which means that it’s made with non-toxic and organic ingredients found in nature. It’s also cruelty free and vegan which is a major plus for me! If you’ve read some of my past posts you already know that I prefer natural beauty products because I believe that they are safer for our health. Our skin absorbs everything that we put on it so it just makes…

    (L to R) Dare To Be Nude, Wear Berries!, On The Catwalk Sometimes makeup is very expensive so it’s important to supplement your luxury products with great drugstore finds.

The lipstick has a nice pigment to it but not overly saturated. I found…

  • Life & Food Garcinia Cambogia Supreme Dietary Supplement

    Gaby Fauchon
    1 Sep 2014 | 6:20 am
    Apparently I have been living under a rock because I had never heard of Garcinia Cambogia before being given the opportunity to try this dietary supplement! I did some researches and I learned that in late 2012, Dr. Oz promoted garcinia cambogia extract as "an exciting breakthrough in natural weight loss", which since then, seems to be all the rage. I absolutely don't need to loose weight, but what is interesting to me since I am always tired because of topical steroid withdrawal, is that this supplement is also supposed to improve energy and promote a balanced, lighter mood by…
  • Topical Steroid Withdrawal | Fifth Month Update

    Gaby Fauchon
    29 Aug 2014 | 6:27 am
    (image: Pinterest)Nothing major happened in July, but there is one new thing: in the first week of July, my lips - which had been mostly unaffected by TSW until this month - started being incredibly dry and cracked. I tried to heal them with many different sorts of lipbalms, but nothing helped - in fact, they only seemed to get worse - they even started oozing and being itchy, a bit like what my face was like in the first months, but less intense! This is when I decided that I would not use any more lipbalm and let my lips do their own thing. But as they continued oozing (the worst was in the…
  • Amp Up Your Style With TRESemme And Walmart This VMA Season!

    I am pretty low key when it comes to my hair - most days, I will simply throw it in a ponytail or braid, and if I really feel like making an effort, I will maybe quickly run the flatiron on my bangs. I am also that kind of girl who doesn't really care if her roots are showing, and who relies heavily on dry shampoo - or even baby powder - to postpone the dreaded hair wash day as far as possible. But when there is a special occasion, I like to amp up my hairstyle a bit, be it full blown volume, super sleek strands or beachy waves.Walmart and TRESemme have teamed up to help you get salon…

    Since I currently can't use any skincare or makeup products because of topical steroid withdrawal, I try my best to pamper my hair instead, and I am a huge fan of leave-in treatment - it saved my hair from years of damage. For about a year, I have been really trying to grow it out - I know, I always say that and I always end up cutting it, but this time, I really want to stick with my resolution! It is almost at the length it was in December 2012, when I decided to chop it off myself, and I really want to grow it even more, so I am doing lots of treatment masks and I use leave-in treatments…

  • Makeup Artist Rae Morris: Low-Maintenance Tips for High-Maintenance Girls

    shannon
    31 Aug 2014 | 12:18 pm
    It is better to arrive late than to be ugly. However, it is best to be punctual and look banging. Award-winning makeup artist Rae Morris has worked on many a famous face–from Miranda Kerr to Naomi Campbell–and she knows all too well that makeup application and shopping for cosmetics can be both time-consuming and confusing. But it need not be. Rae is author of five outstanding reference books on the art of making up, and now she is preparing to give birth to a new baby: The Ultimate Beauty Guide, her sixth tome on looking lovely. Just check out her work from the forthcoming book, below,…

    I sometimes think that life without fashion would be a mistake. There is an infinity of art and craftsmanship wrapped up in a fine wardrobe. Currently, I am absolutely seized by the magnificence of Dubai-based Filipino fashion designer Michael Cinco, above. Throughout history every once in a while a few flashing jewels will sparkle so brilliantly bright, influencing fashion and art with unignorable magnitude. Right now those jewels are sitting squarely in Dubai with the peerless Cinco at its helm. Cinco is bringing back luxury haute couture, the avant-garde, the fashion eccentric…and all in…

  • Beauty & The Beach: Hats & Shades For Warm-Weather Days

    shannon
    16 Jul 2014 | 8:11 am
    Year-round sun protection is the wise choice for a lifetime of beautiful skin. It’s a good idea to have in your wardrobe a hat or two to shield your face, because honestly, reapplying sunscreen throughout the day is not the most convenient process; in fact, it’s beyond high maintenance, and if you wear foundation, it’s going to ruin your canvas. I have a deep appreciation for beautiful things, and couture hats are no exception. There will always be an occasion for a fashionable hat, but the most important thing that you want to invest in first is a very practical, collapsable sun hat…

Loosened skin gets folds and unsightly wrinkles.

    I might be the only person in all of New England who can’t wait for the end of Summer. Come July, I’m normally over the heat and sundresses and ready to slip into a pair of riding boots and light jacket. And while I’m currently sitting inside trying to deny the fact that it’s still 80 degrees outside, I am also wrapping up my Fall prep with some beauty and clothing shopping. Just ’cause I’m not going back to school doesn’t mean I can’t indulge a little bit. I have probably overindulged just a bit, but there are still a few items I have my eye…

And then I was gifted a fancy new blow dryer from the Vidal Sassoon Touch Control Line.It might have taken me a few times … or a few weeks … to properly use the touch controls on the dryer, but now I can dry like a touch-screen pro. Look at that red beauty! At $44.99, this dryer is a total steal. There are over ten temperature and ten speed settings on this dryer, which means you can get very picky when…

    Soap and Glory Archery Brow Pencil Review I don’t really switch up my brow products all that often. Once I find a product I’m happy with I tend to keep going with it until I’ve used it up or am near the end of it.

    2 Sep 2014 | 10:21 am
    I didn’t need to read more than “Targets hormonal aging for skin 40+” on the Osmotics website to say “Yes! “ when asked if I wanted to try the Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Prime ($135 in the shop), since I’ve been crying for manufacturers to specify for which age brackets their products are targeted. I mean, there’s an ocean of difference in treating lines in a 20-something face as opposed to treating lines in a 50-something face. I won’t go into the ingredients, since Marta has covered that in her usual splendid and all-encompassing review of this…

    by Valerie I’m in my 40s, and after testing the Michael Todd True Organics Walnut Grapefruit Body Polish ($14), I can say that I am happy with the results. This body polish provides exfoliation through finely ground walnut shells. I would say that the walnut is ground almost to the consistency of sand. Recently, I’ve been using sugar scrubs with much larger granules. I didn’t realize it until trying this scrub, but I prefer the finer granules. After using the product, my skin is nice and smooth (well... polished). Body oils and lotions absorb nicely after application. This…

This is no exception when it comes to taking proper care of my pucker, as I learned after trying the S.W. Basics Organic Lip Balm Flight ($15 in the shop), a kit that offers four tempting scents in an adorable metal tin. I just turned 26, and for the past few years, I’ve suffered from perpetually chapped and peeling lips. I figured my lips were just prone to dryness. Little did I know, the unsightly peeling was actually my lips crying out for mercy.
  • Evologie Stay Clear Cleanser and Cream

    29 Aug 2014 | 8:33 am
    by Teresa For one month, I tested the Evologie Stay Clear Cleanser and Cream ($32 and $62). The full Evologie system includes the cleanser and cream, plus a serum. I am 62 years of age with combination skin and occasional breakouts. My t-zone was oilier last summer, but perhaps with age and certainly with the brutal Midwest winter, my skin has dried somewhat — especially on my cheeks. I used these two products every morning and night for two months. After two weeks, I noticed an improvement in my breakout area.  The redness decreased, and I had less eruptions.  However, the…

  • Cara Delevigne, Rob Scheppy, Wayne Goss, & Other Industry Influencers on Why They Love Charlotte Tilbury

    1 Sep 2014 | 9:00 pm
    If you’ve ever admired a stunning image of Kate Moss in your favorite glossy (who hasn’t?), or flipped through pretty much any magazine over the past 20 years, you know the work of Charlotte Tilbury. The London makeup artist and beauty icon has been taking the industry by storm as long as we can remember. But last fall, when Charlotte Tilbury—her own skin care and makeup line—launched in the U.K., Charlotte became a household name. Everyone from runway models to A-list celebs to top fashion designers have been raving about the woman herself and her accessible yet superglam products.
  • The It Nail Colors for Fall are Understated and Super Chic

    1 Sep 2014 | 8:00 am
    Taking a cue from the runways during Fashion Week this past February, we’re calling it: understated nails are the thing to sport this fall. But don’t worry, just because you go for a more simple, subtle nail doesn’t mean your mani has to be boring. Embrace the simplicity, because when spring rolls around, we have an inkling that we’ll be right back to our brights, neons, and pastels. Take a look below—and shop!—some of the shades we’ll be wearing all season. Pinky Nudes You can’t really go wrong with a nude nail, especially one with a slight hint of pink. One of the best parts…
  • Find Your Best Foundation Applicator

    31 Aug 2014 | 8:00 am
    Natural or synthetic brushes? Disposable or reusable makeup sponges? With so many foundation applicators on the market, it can feel overwhelming to pick the right one. So we’ve compiled our best advice on the topic, with the help of Kindra Mann, a makeup artist with more than ten years of experience who counts Gabrielle Union and Rosario Dawson among her clients. According to Mann, some formulations work best with specific applicators (for example, to get the most even coverage with powder foundation, a natural-bristle brush is your best bet)—but often, it just comes down to personal…
  • Winged Eyeliner Through the Years + 4 Different Ways to Wear It

    30 Aug 2014 | 8:00 am
    Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra (1963) Winged eyeliner, also referred to as a “cat eye,” could be the most classic beauty trend in history. It was even part of Cleopatra’s beauty routine, since it was believed by the Egyptians as a way to ward off the “evil eye.” Eventually drawn-on “wings” made their way to Hollywood in the ’50s and onto the eyes of Brigitte Bardot, Anna Karina, Sophia Loren, and—full circle—Elizabeth Taylor in the film Cleopatra. Photo by Kaylin Idora Retro style icon Dita Von Teese’s signature winged eye helped boost the trend’s popularity in more…

  • Best Tips For Lips!

    Jackie
    23 Aug 2014 | 12:01 pm
    by Jackie Silver, Aging Backwards Ladies, where would we be without our makeup? Famous makeup guru Max Factor once said, “A woman who doesn’t wear lipstick feels undressed in public. Unless she works on a farm.” We’re all looking for the best tips for lips. TIME magazine reported as far back as 1958 that, “The beauty industry fears no recession, for a woman will give up food before her pursuit of beauty – and often because of it.” Apparently, things haven’t changed much since 1958. Fifty years later, in 2008, beauty retail website feelingunique.com asked 1,000 women in the…

It was my Holy Grail and then poof , it was gone.No longer offered by Lierac, I resorted to hoarding tubes I purchased on Amazon. At some point, one must ask…

  • Ardency Inn Pigments Copper And Vintage Gold Review

    Norah Salazar
    31 Aug 2014 | 9:19 am
    I love pigments! For both personal and work, I rather use pigments over regular shadow, any day. Ardency Inn has launched Modster Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments, a collection of twelve colors in total, these offer concentrated levels of color reaching up to 78%, depending on the shade. In a pigment, you lay out one coat and there is a difference from an average eyeshadow. These shadows have density and photograph beautiful and have less of the chalky feel of regular powder shadow. My opinion? Ardency Inn Pigments deliver velvety, soft, and supremely rich colors. On myself, I used Copper and…
  • The Gnarly Whale Green Tea Eucalyptus Toner Review

    Norah Salazar
    27 Aug 2014 | 12:21 pm
    As far as using toner goes, this is an important skincare step, and one that unfortunately gets neglected by most people. Toner is not just for oily skin, it is for all skin types. Toning after cleansing completes the process of getting rid of debris and impurities, this is why it is so crucial to your daily routine. If you want smoother skin, adding a good toner is a must. I’ve been testing the Gnarly Whale’s Green Tea Eucalyptus toner for a couple of weeks. Here’s the deal with my skin, I am dry/ combination. My toner needs to be gentle, non-drying and without alcohol.

    This bridal look deserves its own beauty breakdown because, I feel, it is a good one. This gorgeous lady was a bride very recently and although it doesn’t seem like a lot, there are quite a few products that were used to achieve this timeless, elegant, makeup look. She had a daytime ceremony and wanted a look that would translate well in daylight and go into night time. My MUA/ Hairstylist friend Denise Mojica did the hair, and it was a beautiful, camera-ready, makeup/ hair transformation.

Ciate London Lash Lights are a new set of lash tip enhancers, think mascara but a much thinner brush. And as far as lash products go, the wand is half your asset when it comes to mascara and lash enhancers. Ciate London Lash Lights come in a series of very pigmented colors, navy blue (Nightingale), blue (Electric), purple (Serene), green (Nymph), and pink (Famous).

This last couple of months, have been extremely busy with makeup work and more than often, I literally have less than ten minutes to do my face and be out the door to catch a train to New York City or drive.

  • Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer Review- In The Nude

    31 Aug 2014 | 7:57 am
    Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer ($5.99, Ulta) is a twist up liner with a built-in smudger that's great for use on the waterline. I have quite a few waterproof liners, but this one stuck out to me because they had a nude shade. I'd been hearing good things about Pixi Beauty's Eye Bright Liner ($12, Target) which is also nude, but I hadn't gotten around to purchasing it yet. Then I saw this one for $5.99 and thought it would be a great dupe at half the price! Take a look...I've always read that putting white eyeliner on your waterline can make you look more awake and really brighten up…

With a name like "The Best Lip Balm Ever" and a nice price ($3.99), I felt compelled to try it and see if it really was as great as it claims.  Check it out!Similar to the original Waxelene that comes in a jar, this lip balm has a ton of uses and benefits, packaged in a small, portable squeeze tube.  I love that this is cruelty free and made in the USA, and it only has 4 ingredients...Organic Soy Oil, Beeswax, Natural Vitamin…

My hair is short and blonde.  I have brown eyes and I’m always down for a swipe of bright red lipstick.  This look?  It’s my fall.  It’s neutral, timeless and takes me through my days.

I did not want to leave the house without cooking something for my family. I opened the fridge. There were tomatoes, carrots, red bell peppers, and fresh Italian parsley. Spaghetti sounded like a perfect idea. There’s more than enough time to go to the store, pick up a few items, come home then cook. My boyfriend and I rushed on over to Sprouts.

    Today, my boyfriend and I were supposed to go to The Long Beach BBQ Festival. All you can eat ribs, chicken, pulled pork, salad, sides, desserts, and drinks for $80. It includes beer and wine as well! Then we started thinking. What if the food weren’t up to our standards and they served beers that are whatever? Then we just wasted $160! Because whoever knows me, knows that I do not like drinking shitty beers (i.e. bud light, etc). So instead, we decided to just make our own food and buy drinks that we actually enjoy. We would avoid disappointment because we know our food is just that…

    My addiction of a good scrub goes beyond just body and facial scrubs. I adore lip scrubs and Treat Beauty’s newest organic sugar scrub is one you’ll want immediately. First and foremost, I love that this scrub comes in a handy tube. This makes it easy to bring with you when traveling, and even easier if you are using it in the shower because your fingers won’t get messy and slippery. It also means there’s basically no chance of getting water into the tube as you would with a jar. This lip scrub is also pretty big! It’s jumbo in size and not your typical small lip…

    When we’re young, we take our flawless skin for granted, never considering that what we do early on will affect us when we’re older. We try to rush things, like wearing makeup (and always forgetting to take it off), skip things like sunscreen and make poor choices like smoking. (I know as I write this I’m not just speaking for myself.) As much as we backpeddle once we finally realize our skin sins, it’s too late and we need wrinkle reducing skin care to become part of our daily routine.

Loss of elasticity around the jawline (drooping jowls) and on the rest of the face is a very common sign of aging. It is part of the natural aging process.

But first, let’s talk about how our skin begins to lose elasticity. When you’re young, you can pull at your skin and it will quickly pop right back into place. (Note:…

    Sometimes, the words don’t come. I will and I will and I will myself to sit down and write the words — any words — but even the sitting down is heavy and hard. That ‘sometimes’ can last for months; it has for almost eight months now. I’ve felt almost afraid of this space, like it’s a fighting ring where I need to show my strongest, most indefatigable side; where I need to reflect some sort of beauty or magic, if at least to myself. But every now and then, there are (still) those days where it feels enough for me to just breathe through the day. Those days,…

Because there was a time when we would follow only what our hearts and our bodies really wanted to do from deep inside each cell: To speak the truest truth we knew in our littlest minds. To laugh whenever the hell we wanted, even if it wasn’t appropriate. To move and bop and let our bodies do…

I sat around a round table this afternoon with three friends who have known my pains and my joys, and everything that has made my heart sing and bleed. One of them had made it possible for me to leave a painful place; another gave me new ways of looking, feeling and loving; and the last who has only ever believed in the spark within me, no matter how dark things became.

    I love a good candle any time of year, the fragrance gently wafting around the room and the flicking flame can be ever so calming, but in some ways, there is no better time for a candle than autumn and winter, there’s something about snuggling down on the sofa, nice cup of tea, movie on the TV and a candle flickering softly – blissful. So right now, is a great time to stock up on those perfect autumnal fragrances and here is some of my top picks from the Scented Candle Shop which are a must on my list this year.

    Feels like a while since I have done a Like Love Loathe – feels like a while since I have had anything to like or love in all honesty.

  • Cyber Clean: Review

    Sarah-Louise Bailey
    1 Sep 2014 | 3:49 am
    I’ve long seen Cyber Clean in adverts and wondered what it is actually like, does it clean or does it just stick in gloopy bits to anything it touches – much like the texture makes it look like it should. Which in all honesty is the reason I have never purchased any myself, I could just imagine the after effects of a £1.99 packet of gloop being stuck to my keyboard forever. But when I was offered the opportunity to review it, I thought, well others must wonder the same as me, perhaps this is the time I can put ideas to sleep or prove them correct. Cyber Clean claims to rid your…

    Of all the wedding hairstyle options out there, half-up hair is easily one of our favorites. You get the fun of an updo with the beauty of wearing your hair down, all while hair is out of your face but still flowing free. Really, there’s no reason to not love a half-up wedding hairstyle.

    When it comes to New York Fashion Week (or any fashion week for that matter) we tend to want to know what is happening the instant the models are walking the runway. Or better yet – before. In the current era of “FOMO,” and with our ever-present need for information, social media can be a blessing and a curse. The second someone tweets about a show, we need more. So, this season, when you find yourself wanting more, we’ve made it easy for you to quickly get that information, in an instant.

    Wendy Kwei Makeup Artist Sydney
    26 Aug 2014 | 6:11 pm
    I’m a big fan of Laura Mercier and her makeup line, in particular her primers and her secret camouflage concealer. I love this statement taken from the Laura Mercier Australia Facebook page: “I’ve always been interested in making women look as beautiful as possible, while making them look like themselves”. I couldn’t have said it better myself! And the truth is when makeup is applied well, either by yourself or a makeup artist, people don’t notice the makeup, they just see you!
  • Age defying makeup for mature skin

    Wendy Kwei Makeup Artist Sydney
    21 Aug 2014 | 8:16 pm
    I’m often asked about age defying makeup, and when you should start using it. The truth is biological age actually means very little when I’m applying makeup on someone. I meet women who are 50+ yet look closer to 40 and 20 year olds who could pass for 30. I don’t focus on age, I focus on the skin. I do believe there are certain times in life when internal and external factors can have a dramatic impact on your skin and face. By external, think of relocations to a different time zone or season, and by internal I mean hormonal shifts like puberty, pregnancy, or menopause. These factors…

  • Is your winter skin drinking your makeup?

    Wendy Kwei Makeup Artist Sydney
    20 Jul 2014 | 8:51 pm
    If you get to mid-morning or the start of your lunch break and notice that your makeup has mysteriously disappeared, there’s a good chance your skin has drunk it up! In these cooler months, external influences like artificial heating and cool winds will make your skin dry and thirsty, and your disappearing makeup is often the first indicator of it. Before rushing to change your makeup routine, I always recommend looking at your skincare and diet first. Drinking sufficient amounts of water is the key to hydrating your skin, and of course reducing its thirst-factor! Secondly have a look at…

  • Dealing with a Frenemy

    We all have at least one. Frenemies. The urban dictionary describes a frenemy as being: “Someone who is both friend and enemy, a relationship that is both mutually beneficial or dependent while being competitive, fraught with risk and mistrust.” Which I think is a perfect explanation of a frenemy. So, here is the question on everyone’s mind: WHY DO WE KEEP OUR FRENEMIES IN OUR LIVES? Maybe a better question should be, what can we do to change a frenemies status from frenemy to friend? Your frenemy may be a co-worker, sister, friend from college, friend of a mutual friend,…

    Whale-watching in Oslob has created plenty buzz lately and now it's in everybody's bucket list, especially because when you're in Oslob, you're sure to see one. Swimming with the butanding (whale shark) was definitely quite an experience for me. There's something extremely magnificent about these giants.

I'm really still on the fence here. The more I read about the butanding, the more convinced I am…

      Breasts, breasts, breasts. Whether small or large, pert or pendulous, they all have their admirers. But there is one type of breast that most approaches perfection. The model mammary apparently has a nipple that points slightly skywards and an upper half just a bit smaller than the bottom half. If one is talking about a mature woman, then there is no perfect breast size. All breast sizes when the time comes, will serve the function to which they were given.

  • The Renaissance of the Male Calf?

    Ryan Bloch
    5 Aug 2014 | 9:55 am
        Did you know that the male calf used to be a signature erogenous zone? This is why European men in the latter part of the 18th Century wore stockings. Much like the modern equivalent of the male bicep, an emphasis on a strong shapely calf was meant to attract female onlookers. As with a strong bicep, a strong calf conveyed virility. If we look at paintings and portraits from the latter half of the 1700s we can see that the fashionable item were white stockings, and men can be seen posing in such a way as to accentuate the finer features of their calf. The modern equivalent of…

    The balanced lip size: The ratio of the height of the upper lip to that of the lower one is ideally 1.4:1.6. 1. Outside Corners of Lips Over time, the fat at the corner of the lips disappears and the depressor angularis oris, the muscle that runs from the corner of the lips to the jawbone, tightens, resulting in the downward look. This process also results in the formation of Marionette lines. Dermal fillers can replace the volume while Botox®, in the depressor angularis oris will relax that muscle.  2.

    26 Jun 2014 | 10:22 am
    From complaining that they are to large, asymmetrical, or protrude to far from their heads, many individuals are unhappy with their ears. Many take various measures to hide them, from growing out the hair to cover the ears, to slapping on hats. Fortunately, otoplasty, or ear plastic surgery, is readily available to cosmetically alter the ears. Because the ears are very prominent, many cosmetic ear surgery patients experience a significant increase in confidence and self-esteem once their ears have been given a more desirable appearance. The most popular otoplasty procedure is ear pinning and…

    Question:   I’ve been using  a 1% retinol serum, 15% vitamin C serum for my face and another 5% vitamin c serum for my eyes for two weeks and now my skin  is a mess!  It’s red, peeling, super dry and  wrinkled.  It even hurts   when I wash my face and put on sunscreen.   I’m so scared and don’t know what to do.

    I first “met”  skin  and heath care expert Dr Gayelord Hauser  in a dusty junk shop where I picked up a copy of his 1951 best seller, Treasury of Secrets.  His clear  writing and positive attitude was addicting   and I  trolled old bookstores to find his other  out of print books.  ( This was before Amazon, way before). Dashingly handsome, Dr Hauser was a European nutritionist who  promoted the idea of “living foods”– unprocessed  fruits, vegetables,  low fat dairy  and  even  meat.   He was certainly not the first natural health guru.  There…

    As millions of baby boomers cross the 50-year threshold, the perception of the dreaded “half-century” mark is changing. Many 50-year-olds today don’t look a day over 40, and many of them are just as active, if not more active, than their younger counterparts. Anti-aging fitness at this point in life is essential—those who don’t get fit at 50 are putting themselves at risk. Even if you look youthful on the outside, neglecting the need to get fit at 50 can lead to complications.

    When it comes to the world of nail designs there is very little that caters for short nails. Everywhere you look you see long, pointy or stiletto nails, and none of the designs or nail art are suitable for shorter manicures. Which is a little unfair, don’t you think? Shorter nails may not instantly catch the eye in the same way something more in-your-face or ostentatious would but they can be much more suitable for certain situations. Short nails are subtle, classy and elegant. But they’re also functional. You’re not going to want some long talons with jewels all over them…

Our skin and hair are good indicators of what we have been eating over the long run. The occasional grease or fatty food is not going to show.
