Unsung Makeup Heroes: Shiseido Facial Cotton

The Unsung Heroes series highlights some of my ALL-TIME favorite permanent collection products from all sorts of brands. Dang, I had my heart set on being crabby about these Shiseido Facial Cotton pads, because girl, they’re $10, and...Show More Summary

3 Mind-Blowing Ways to Transform Your Makeup and Have Tons of Fun With Face Oil

This one never would have occurred to me on my own. I had no idea anyone was doing this — mixing face oil into their makeup. Then I saw MAC Senior Artist Alev Karli do it in a video (check out her Instagram feed because it’s gorgeous!). Show More Summary

Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 493

So…what is the Monday Poll? Well, it isn’t exactly a poll. It’s more of a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past 10 (!) years. (It’s like...Show More Summary

Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 467

Every morning like clockwork Tabs follows me downstairs into the kitchen, kitty hugging my legs and meowing all the way. Then he sits in the same spot on the kitchen floor looking up at me, then up to the cabinet where I keep his extra...Show More Summary

Saturday Surfing: September 16th, 2017

In addition to some of the requisite “adulting” things I have to do on Saturday mornings, like starting the laundry, watering the plants, getting breakfast started, administering lurvies to my feline overlord, etc., sometimes I actually...Show More Summary

I’m Crazy About Cocofloss: This Dental Floss Is Life-Changing (No, Really)

Strawberry-flavored dental floss. YES, GIRL! It’s a thing. As are coconut-flavored and orange-flavored floss. “OH, thank gosh, Karen!” I can hear you saying in your head. “Because I was worried I’d be doomed to a tragic life of hella...Show More Summary

A Recent Revelation

Girl, I realized last Monday night that it really, really helps to keep trash bags in your car. Like, readily accessible trash bags that you can grab from the driver’s seat. I came to this astonishingly mind-blowing revelation because, as I was driving home from the gym, I threw up in my mouth…and FYI, throwing up in your mouth is absolutely awful. Show More Summary

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter

Is the spelling of Fenty Beauty’s Killawatt (with an “a” instead of an “o”) Freestyle Highlighter giving you lyfe? Yes, that’s lyfe with a “y,” as in Yacht Lyfe, one of the cream hylighters highlighters in the line. I’m an absolutely...Show More Summary

Empties

I stepped into my bathroom to take a shower the other day — because, apparently, I shower three times a day now because I’m so freaking sweaty — and discovered that a bunch of products I used all summer long have all gone empty at the...Show More Summary

3 Marvelous Movies to Watch Right Meow

Officially, television rots your brain. Unofficially, these are three things I’ve watched lately that I really enjoyed. ???? 1. The Girl with All the Gifts First, it’s a zombie movie…but before you roll your eyes at me (“Karen, I get it. Show More Summary

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Invisimatte Blotting Powder

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Invisimatte Blotting Powder gets awesome reviews on the Sephora website, but it was the only product from my recent Fenty Beauty purchase that I didn’t love…so I’ll keep this short and sweet. It’s a 0.3-oz. plastic...Show More Summary

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Match Stix Matte Skinsticks

Like every face product I’ve tried from Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty makeup line so far, the Match Stix Matte Skinsticks, which are $25 cream-to-powder concealers (available in 20 shades), create a lightweight skin-perfecting makeup look. When I use it, I think my face just looks…better. Show More Summary

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation

Normally, I would advise caution when hugging complete strangers, but if I ever run into Rihanna at the gym (I can totes see Riri doing squats) or TJ’s, I’m going to walk up to that lady and give her the tightest freaking bear hug. I don’t even care if her people jujitsu me and take my @ss to the floor. Show More Summary

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer

I’m sorry not sorry, but it’s right there, so I gotta do it: Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer ($18) is BOMB. Yet another pleasant surprise from Rihanna’s new makeup line. There’s only one lip product in it — this gloss. Show More Summary

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Match Stix Shimmer Skinsticks

It’s the little things, ya know? Like the fact that I can stick these Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Match Stix, which have magnets in them, on my fridge. Officially, the magnets, which are embedded in the little tubes, are there so that the...Show More Summary

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer

Rihanna’s no stranger to the makeup world. She’s collaborated on collections with MAC and was a spokesperson for CoverGirl, among other makeup endeavors, so it’s not a big surprise that she decided to bust a move and create her own makeup line. And surprise! — it’s really good. Show More Summary

Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 466

I can’t get over how much this cat likes carbs! It’s crazy. It doesn’t make any sense to me. He’s a full-on carnivore, so why would he rather eat a zinnia flower, a croissant or a piece of toast than a slab of bacon or an egg? The only...Show More Summary

Saturday Surfing: September 9th, 2017

Thinking good thoughts for all of you who are waiting on Irma this weekend (or Jose or Katia), or dealing with the aftermath of Harvey. There are also wildfires raging out west, and a bad earthquake hit Mexico. Basically, it’s been a rough couple of weeks in this hemisphere. Show More Summary

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Highlighting Eyeshadow Palette Vol III

I’ve always been intrigued and a little bit confused by the name of Tarte’s “Rainforest of the Sea” palettes. Because it’s a little confusing, right? I picture a rainforest literally emerging from the sea like an Amazonian Atlantis,Show More Summary
