Klorane Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk For Brown to Dark Hair Will Raise the Root, Y’all!

Because you and I can comfortably go into TMI territory, I’m guessing/hoping that you won’t be grossed out when I say that I get a weird thrill from seeing how long I can go without washing my hair. I find it fascinating and kind of disgusting at the same time. Show More Summary

Unsung Makeup Heroes: NARS Lodhi Satin Lip Pencil

Matte Lips in Summer: Are They a Do or a Don’t?

Matte lips in summer: a do or a don’t? For me, they’re an ALL-CAPS DO! — but if you’d asked me a couple years ago, I probably would have said “don’t,” because I’m also a sucker for the classics, which for summer usually means glossyShow More Summary

My Lips Are Smitten With New Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer

If the Marc Jacobs Beauty Hi-Shine Enamored Lip Lacquers were a dude, I wouldn’t say that I’m “ready to put a ring on it,” because we’ve only been together about a week, but I would say that I am enamored enough with them to make out on the doorstep — with tongue action. Show More Summary

Your Hair Has a New Secret Weapon, and It’s a Tool for Teeth

Why walk around with a misbehaving mop when your favorite dental dynamo can help? Yaaaas, girl! Toothbrushes aren’t just for cleaning teeth (or gunky lash combs) anymore.

Latest Loves: Body Oils by Fresh, NARS and Ren

For reasons that elude me (I think it has something to do with the heater in the house), when summer arrives, my scaly alligator-like arms and legs become slightly less…alligator-like. My skin isn’t quite as dry, so I’ve swapped out the heavy-duty body creams I used in winter for lighter, but still moisturizing, body oils. Show More Summary

Are There Any Hairstyles You’d Absolutely Never Do?
