MAC Lorde Collection

MAC Cosmetics is doing the Lorde's work! With her fabulously '90s aesthetic of curly locks and MAC Fetish-esque lips, scintillating songs and refreshingly DGAF attitude, it's no wonder the mega makeup brand partnered with Kiwi Lorde on a makeup range. The collection includes Pure Heroin Lipstick (a deep plum) for $16 and Penultimate Eye Liner in Rapidblack for $19.50. It's available at maccosmetics.com June 5, internationally as of July.

Leg Shaving Tips On The Go

This post is sponsored by Venus, but all opinions herein are my own. This article also appears on gillettevenus.com.  On a trip to Greece I took this summer, I accidentally packed my razor, but tragically, not my razor blade. In my haste, I’d forgotten to do a roll-call of all my toiletry items to be replaced after my last jaunt. Catastrophe, obviously. I could not be stubbly in Santorini. I wound up having to locate a drugstore on the tiny island and pretty much mime that I needed to buy Continue Reading [...]

Sanctuary Spa At Bay Club San Francisco

A couple weeks ago, I crashed with my high school good Judy (shout-out to my gal India-Jewel Jackson) Michele in San Francisco and lived my life as a parallel-universe me, who wakes up early (west coast jet-lag is the best!), dresses in layers and pretentiously, but appropriately swishes her red wine in a swirl before drinking it. Many things were new -- eschewing 10+ per week meals with girls in the name of catching up in favor of chilling with cute tech dudes who are taller than 5'3" (oh, New Continue Reading [...]

Skinterrogation: Dr. Lisa Airan

Lisa Airan once gave me the peel of my life and even dished with me about dating in NYC while the acids did their thing on my face. The aesthetic dermatologist is based in in Manhattan and loves to help her patients look as good as they feel through combinations of injectable botox and fillers, lasers and the strategic use of the most current technologies like the latest advances in platelet-rich plasma. I caught up with the skin savant to glean her best tips on acne care, hyperpgimentation, her Continue Reading [...]

Fictitious Fragrance Fan: Blair Waldorf of ‘Gossip Girl’

It's very hard to bottle Blair Waldorf-- she is smart and sophisticated but easily one of the biggest bitches to ever grace TV, and yet she still manages to be sweet. She eats macarons in the tub, has bow dresses, bright tights and single-handily brought back the headband. Ultimately a hopeless romantic, Blair deserves a sweet scent like Viktor & Rolf's BonBon,  more sophisticated than sugary and just the right amount of sexy. It attracts attention through seduction, but also by demanding Continue Reading [...]

I caught up with the Modern Family actress to ask her some burning beauty questions regarding Continue Reading [...]
