6 Ways to Feel Feminine and Beautiful This Winter

There’s something special about being a woman. No matter how hard a man might try, he can’t recreate the grace and femininity of a woman. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for a woman to feel like she’s lost herself, especially if she is a busy mom! It’s easy to forget who you are after a pregnancy, a difficult time at work, a death in the family, or any other challenging time. All these things can make us forget how to feel feminine and beautiful. Women go through their fair share of diff...

Shalini by Shalini: A Chameleon Tuberose Perfume

  After reviewing two magnificent floral fragrances launched by the New York-based brand Shalini, which I met thanks to my good luck and the ridiculous mistake of my friends, I just cannot stop. Yes, these perfumes are not cheap, and I do not know whether they are distributed in Russia or in other countries, but they are perfect, and perfection deserves to be reviewed. Today I smelled the first ... Read full article: Shalini by Shalini: A Chameleon Tuberose Perfume from Fragrantica Perfumes an...

The Hidden Gems Section On Wayfair Is Holiday Gifting Goals

Many dread the holidays due to gifting apprehension. And while we understand the worry that surrounds savvy budgeting and perfect purchases, we actually find the upcoming season to be the most liberating of all shopping occasions. Where gifting on other special days (like birthdays or V-Day) can call for particular goods sharply pre-groomed by recipients, during the holidays these strict shopping wheels come off. Meaning we get a creative license back on our buys.In the spirit of embracing the ...

Autumn in Italy Is Changing and So are Shopping Habits

Italy has not been experiencing its typical autumn weather. For the past two years, weather has been hot and sunny into September and even October, and consumers are taking note (and adjusting their shopping behavior accordingly). One of the industries that is more affected by this prolonged hot weather is textile and fashion. “People are wearing light garments until the beginning of November and then they decide to wait for Black Friday or even Christmas sales,” noted Patrizia Bolzoni, General...

Beauty Gifts Guaranteed to Bring You Back to the '90s

Before there was Spotify, there were Hit Clips (remember those?).

Regarding the latter, the '90s produced some of the most unique beauty trends, and some of us still live and breathe them. Ahead are our favorite beauty gifts for friends who love the decade.

The Best K-Beauty Gift Sets For The Skin-Care Obsessives On Your List

Out of all the beauty trends taking over the market, K-beauty has been the one to watch this year — and last year, and the year before that, and... well, you get the picture. South Korea has become a major influence on the Western beauty industry over the past decade, but in the past twelve months alone, we've seen even more of these brands fly off the shelves at beauty giants like Sephora, and inspire the creation of new brands like Kaja.So it's only right that we take authentic K-beauty sets ...

Unexpected Denim Pieces You'll Want To Add To Your Fall Wardrobe

Let's face it, we're rarely surprised by a "new" denim trend. After all, denim is notorious for acting on a cyclical basis, with jeans, jackets, and everything in between constantly being recycled over a ten or twenty year basis. It happened with mom jeans, cropped denim jackets, high-rise midi skirts, mini skirts, flares, skinny jeans and more. But for the first time in what feels like forever, we're getting a glimpse of some mint condition trends in the denim department.Brands are, at last, m...

Katie Hill Just Conquered One Of California's Last Republican Strongholds

"I was told, 'A woman couldn't possibly beat Steve Knight," Democratic candidate Katie Hill told Refinery29 earlier this year. That's the feedback she received when she announced she was going to challenge the Republican incumbent in California's 25th District. And yet, here we are: The 31-year-old nonprofit executive defeated Knight in a dead heat election that was deemed too-close-to-call most of Wednesday. In the afternoon, he conceded.The 25th District was a Republican stronghold for decade...

How To Pull Off The Glossy Eye Trend Without Looking Sweaty

Glossy lids are here to stay. With Pat McGrath creating a high-shine blush lid at Valentino last year that triggered a domino effect with other runway beauty looks to come, and over 35,000 #glossyeyes posts on Instagram, it's fair to say the latex-look lid isn't going anywhere. As fresh and clean or as bold and bright as you choose, the look is part of the wave of more experimental and playful beauty seen both within the industry and online."They're definitely an antidote to the traditionally ‘...

The Folklore Is Bringing Africa’s Best Designers To The U.S.

In Black culture, folklore remains an essential mode of passing down stories, customs, and beliefs from generation to generation. The Folklore, Amira Rasool's new cultural hub for contemporary brands, artists, and creatives, aims to tell the stories of designers from the African diaspora through their own lens. "No one is really documenting these designers now as they should, allowing them to document their own journeys," Rasool tells Refinery29. "I really just want them to able to tell their o...

What Glossier's Reformulated Generation G Lipsticks Looks Like on 3 Skin Tones

Today, Glossier rereleased its Generation G lipsticks ($18) - the sheer (but buildable) matte lip colors. The cult-favorite brand has chosen to keep its original six shades but is changing aspects of the lipsticks themselves, like their texture and casing. The reformulation came in response to customer feedback that the packaging was flawed and the lipsticks were drying, according to Vogue. So the brand amped up the bullet to have an ultracreamy ("moisturizing" is the word that our team has been...

Glossier Just Dropped A New Lipstick Formula — & This Is How It's Made

How Glossier Gen G Lip Tint Is Made You know the saying, 'If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it'? Well, Glossier does not subscribe to that notion — at least, not where its very un broken lipstick is concerned. As a matter of fact, the brand just took its best-selling formula, plumped up the packaging a little, and churned out a Generation G 2.0 that’s like something out of a millennial-pink beauty lover's version of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory.In the video above, the rubber-gloved chemists...
