Makeup Inspired By: Slimy, Slippery, Splashy Snails

Makeup Inspired By: Slimy, Slippery, Splashy Snails

When I was a kid, I used to love beetles and snails and all things colorful that crawled. Nowadays, I’m one of those people who becomes hilariously frantic when arthropods are anywhere near me, but I still love snails.

This week, I wanted to pay tribute to our lovely little friends who leave pretty trails behind with their slime. This was kind of a weird tutorial to do since it uses so many different shades, but I wanted to play up the blended, multi-hued nature of these guys, as well as the aforementioned slime trails.

Perhaps not Gail the Snail so much, though… More »

BB Creams We Tried & Liked

BB Creams We Tried & Liked

As you may have deduced from my 2000 word BB Cream exegesis, I have tried dozens of different versions over the past few weeks. This has involved many lunchtime trips to Sephora, many beleaguered publicist friends I have harassed for samples, much slathering of more suspicious products on EIC Jennifer Wright and a blemish or two. I’m not kidding, though, I think I tested every BB Cream available in the states. These are the ones that stuck out. More »

Gallery: The First Photos From Emma Watson's Lancôme Campaign

When we first found out Emma Watson was going to be the new brand ambassadress for Lancôme cosmetics, we were sure she was going to do the classic brand justice. How could she not? Well, photos thought to be from the new Mario Testino shot campaign for Lancôme’s Midnight Rose fragrance hit the Internet today, and they are not good. THEY ARE GREAT. (Did that scare you? For shame.) Here they are. More »

Under Cover: A Beautiful Trio on Flare

Canadian fashion glossy Flare put the spotlight on a trio of ridiculously pretty women, two of whom we haven’t seen in a while: Estonia’s Tiiu Kuik who–besides repping CoverGirl–is not the catwalk fixture she once was; Canada’s formerly-ubiquitous Irina Lazareanu (last seen in the Lanvin x H&M campaign) and Dominican Lancome face Arlenis Sosa (who hasn’t seen any shortage of More »

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld Looking Gorgeous for Lancome

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld Looking Gorgeous for Lancome

Wow. I never thought I’d see a campaign and say, “Damn, that is… fierce,” because using disposable fashion vocab is pretty obnoxious (especially when every reality TV personality from judges of wannabes to flighty interior designers has run it into the ground). But I don’t really have another way of expressing my appreciation for the direct and sultry face staring back at me. Restoin-Roitfeld is, of course, the absurdly stylish progeny of More »
