Is There a Graceful Way to Go Gray?

I’ve been dyeing my hair for what feels like forever. I think the last time I rocked my natural color from roots to ends, gosh… It must’ve been when I was in my 20s. Maybe? It’s been a really long time. I’m currently two weeks out from...Show More Summary

Brand Spotlight: IGK

Girl, there’s this IGK display at the Sephora by my house that I’ve walked past…I don’t know how many times, and I swear to gawd, up until about a month ago, I thought it was a display for R+Co! Doesn’t the packaging look similar? Still, I should probably, like, get my eyes checked soon. Show More Summary

How to Not Lose Your Damn Mind When You’re Shopping for Beauty Products

When I’m at Sephora and one of the sales associates walks up to me with an empty basket, I turn into the emoji with the crossed hands, like, NO! Literally. So. Me. Those baskets are my downfall, man. I can go into a Sephora with oneShow More Summary

Marc Jacobs Is Going Nuts for Coconuts

I wonder if Marc Jacobs has ever opened a coconut… He likes coconuts, obviously, because there’s a bunch of new products in his makeup line that are coconut inspired and have coconut water in them, but has homeboy actually ever opened a coconut? I hope he has! And I hope you have at least once, because it’s weirdly empowering. Show More Summary

The Surratt Beauty Relevée Lash Curler or the Shiseido Eyelash Curler?

I got these two curlers during the Sephora VIB sale last month because I needed to replace my ancient, much-loved Shu Uemura curler. Yup, my little trooper finally broke (RIP). ???? I’d heard that they’re similar to Shu’s curler and read...Show More Summary

The Lust List, Vol. 9: Stuff I Kinda Want

Me: Karen, you should stop cruising the interwebz, because whenever you do it, you always end up with even moar lemmings. Also Me: Karen, you shouldn’t stop cruising the interwebz, because whenever you do it, you always end up with even...Show More Summary

Stay (Rose) Golden, BECCA: The New BECCA X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette

So, remember when rose gold hit the scene this last time, and everybody went crazy for it? When was that…? 2014? 2015? I keep thinking that one day it’s going to fall out of fashion, but it doesn’t appear to be going anywhere anytime soon, am I right? Like, the new BECCA X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette ($46) is ROSE. Show More Summary

Purple Power! A New Purple Liner Love I Found at Sephora

It’s both wonderful and terrifying to live so close to a Sephora, because when I get on a makeup whim, I can just hop in my car, and BAM! Five minutes later I’ve got every purple liner in the store swatched on the back of my hand. Yeah, I’m going through a purple liner phase right meow, big time (in case you haven’t noticed, LOL!).

New Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potions! UD Fix, Freebase, Caffeine and Sin

I do this thing, and I probably shouldn’t be telling you this but whatevs, but whenever I think of the word “base,” like eyeshadow base, as in Urban Decay’s new Eyeshadow Primer Potion eyeshadow base, I think of Ace of Base from the ’90s, ya know? I saw the sign? I can hear the first few bar in my head. Show More Summary

Neat and New to Me: The IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Vol 1 Matte Luxe Transforming Eyeshadow Palette

I feel the same way about matte palettes as a I feel about mascara. Both are flat-out necessities, and any makeup lover worth her weight in cotton balls should have at least one or two in her (or his) bag. Well…I don’t know how you feel...Show More Summary

Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 475

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. 449

The time goes by so fast… That’s such a cliché, but it’s a cliché because it’s true. It really does seem like yesterday Tabs was this bouncy kitten with bright green eyes and a crooked tail who would pounce in and out of my apartment. Show More Summary

Saturday Surfing: May 13th, 2017

Oh, my gawd, is that The Rock on a package of nail polish? Yeah, I think it is! How random is this? Maybe I’m late to the party, but I had no idea they were remaking the old-school Baywatch show as a movie (quick question, though: why??),...Show More Summary

#FragranceFriday: Scents From Urban Decay, Malin + Goetz and Kiss by Rihanna

Let’s not even go there about how hard it is to not look like your hands are actually T. rex claws in pics. (It’s hard.) Tried a few different fragrances this week, two of which are new, and all of which are new to me. Two of them really took me back. Show More Summary

Kevyn Aucoin Neo-Setting Powder Is Pretty Darned Innovative!

Ooh! Sparkly. ???? And dare I say it, borderline unicorn? This new powder by Kevyn Aucoin looks like a highlighter, right? Nope! It’s supposed to be a face setting powder, but it has a gradient of different finishes. I know! Kind of crazy. On...Show More Summary

NARS Liquid Blush: I Have Buckets and Barrels of Love for This Line!

Here, let me get in there and give you a quick shoulder rub for a second, because I really wouldn’t want you to pull a muscle doing the snake as you celebrate when I tell you that the new NARS Liquid Blushes are permanent. YAY! They’re also going to be on counters sooner than I thought. Show More Summary

The Uber-Luxe NARS Pro Brush Collection

I don’t even know where to start with the NARS Pro Brush Collection. The face brush is $95… I mean, I can’t. I just can’t. Almost $100 for a single brush is craziness to me. I thought a $38 Chanel eye brush was stressful! I received these brushes as press samples, so I didn’t purchase them on my own. Show More Summary

The NARS Orgasm Collection: A New Three-Piece Release Arriving May 15th

Question: Is it possible to have multiple orgasms when you’re putting on your makeup in the morning? Answer: Um…yeah?! It’s too easy to go there and do prepubescent boy jokes with NARS Orgasm. I’m sorry! Color me adolescent. NARS has a new Orgasm collection. Show More Summary

What I Wore Wednesday, Vol. 12: Sparkly Purple Liner, and Fun With Matte and Dewy Finishes

I know I’ve asked this before (oh, 10 or 12 times), but do you like to wear colorful eye makeup? Like, lately? I’ve been pretty adventurous with color lately. More than I’ve been in years. At least two or three. I dunno… I went through...Show More Summary

The Lust List, Vol. 8: Stuff I Kinda Want

What is it about pricey makeup palettes — or me, for that matter, haha! — that makes me wish I could give them all a happy home? Especially the warm ones with a golden brown, a taupe, golden beige and/or peach? I want to tell them all,...Show More Summary
