How to Shop Mid-Range Jewelry & Brands to Watch

How to Shop Mid-Range Jewelry & Brands to Watch There comes a time in every budget fashionista’s life when she decides to outgrow ultra-cheap jewelry. Of course I love that Forever21 stocks fun, cheap earrings and bracelets…but many of those pieces are short-lived. If they don’t give me a rash or turn my skin green, they’ll end up tangled in the bottom of my jewelry box for the rest of time. Don’t get me wrong. I still love a nice and trendy color pop, like what you might get from SUGARFIX by Ba...

8 Experiential Birthday Gifts That Are So Much Better Than A Bottle Of Wine

Unless your friends are the type that spend the days leading up to their birthday creating Amazon wish lists and mood boards on Pinterest, we're willing to bet that you're usually at a loss for what to gift them, no matter how close you are. That's why we love experiential gifts. Unlike physical presents, experiences leave every gift recipient with a fun memory to look back on, so there's little room for error. Plus, there's something for every single personality type — and it's a slightly narc...

9 Headbands Getting Us Through The Holiday Party Season

It might just be a week into December, but that hasn't stopped our calendars from being overrun by holiday parties, office happy hours, and what feels like our 300th Secret Santa gift exchange (we can only buy so many candles).Needless to say, we have a lot of last-minute planning to do. After deciding which frozen Trader Joe's appetizer to bring, there are a few other things to check off our list: wardrobe (lots of sequin gold dresses), makeup (a tasteful amount of glitter), and nails (festive...

21 Body Scrubs That Will Save Your Skin This Winter

There's never a right and wrong time to exfoliate your body. Whether it's the middle of summer — the temperature pushing 100 — or the dead of winter, getting rid of dry, itchy skin is always a good idea.Unfortunately, right now, it is winter, and our skin is begging for salvation from the brick-cold winds outside. Now is as good a time as any to take extra precautions against rough, dehydrated skin, so we're investing the rest of our holiday budget in full-body scrubs that keep flakes away.To h...

The Beauty Products at These Gyms Are So Good, I’ll Work Out Just to Use Them

We're going to let you in on a little gym secret (and no, it has nothing to do with working out): gyms are a gold mine for beauty products. Depending on which one you go to, you might be able to slather your entire body with some of the most luxurious creams and gels on the market and style your hair with the best products and tools.

Becky G’s Salvaje Makeup Collaboration Marks A Big First For ColourPop

As a Latina, I can tell you that it's rare to find products in the beauty aisle that I feel were made just for me, let alone ones that have Spanish-language names emblazoned across the packaging. So when Mexican-American singer Becky G announced that she had a new collaboration coming out with ColourPop titled Salvaje, I — and her 14 million Instagram fans — got excited.This year, diversity has been at the forefront of the beauty conversation, with both influencers and customers holding brands ...

ColourPop Just Released a Makeup Vault So Big, You'll Never Need to Buy Eye Shadow Again

In my humble beauty-editor opinion, there are few cosmetics products on the market as fun as ColourPop's Super Shock Shadows. They are squishy, colorful, and always statement-making. One thing that might top it, however, is a vault with 25 never-before-released shades, all in a pretty pink box. This holiday season, the buzzy brand is offering the Is This Real Life? Super Shock Shadow Vault ($99) that features so many new shades, you'll never run out of looks to try. It includes five tie-dye shad...

12 Editor-Approved Nude Lipsticks To Keep In Your Makeup Stash

Now that she's officially our Royal Duchess of Sussex, more and more fans have been inspired to emulate her look — which is why it's no surprise that the nude lipstick she wore to their first press briefing is responsible for a spike in sales of neutral lip shades.According to cosmetics brand M...

Khloe Kardashian Is Now Platinum Blonde — & We Got The Details From Her Colorist

Keeping up with Kardashian family's hair colors is almost tougher than keeping up with their televised lives. Between Kim and Kylie alone , the sisters have worn damn near every shade of the rainbow on their heads this year — including pastel pink and neon green. But Khloe Kardashian has always taken a more subtle approach to hair color. She’s switched up her length plenty of times, rocking a bob most recently, but her color has stayed the same — golden blonde with shadowed roots — until now...

Mushrooms: The Quiet Hunt

  'What drills through the earth, leaving there the root, birthing itself, masked by its cap?"  - this is a Russian children's riddle from the olden days. There were lots of riddles about mushrooms in Russia back in the day. People also knew significantly more mushroom names than they do today.   People have always used mushrooms in their cooking in Russia. It was called 'meat of th...

How To Stream The 2019 Golden Globe Nominations

It's just a matter of weeks before we've completed another orbit around the sun (how is this year already over?!), and that means we once again find ourselves entering awards season. The 76th Golden Globe Awards will take place on January 6, 2019, and after a year full of really good TV and film, there's sure to be some close competition. Who will sweep? Crazy Rich Asians?

12 Festive (& Seriously Chic) Holiday Manicures To Copy This Season

Imagine, for a second, that you've just stepped through the door of a swanky holiday party. You're wearing a variation of your dream outfit — a velvet jumpsuit, heels, earrings that look like Hermès but are actually H&M — when someone hands you a skinny crystal champagne flute, like a scene out of a movie. You smile, eagerly stretch your fingers towards the stem, and, at that precise moment, remember the one detail you forgot: to schedule a manicure.Instead of getting stuck kicking yourself at ...

How Wearing Makeup Helped Me Recover From a Religious Cult

I'm not especially vain, but I pay to have my eyebrows chiseled into for hours. My brow bones are numbed, but I can still feel the scrape of the tiny knife. It's a procedure called microblading and, in the end, my white-blond eyebrows are temporarily tattooed with light brown ink. Every three weeks I impatiently lie utterly still, eyes closed, while the technician meticulously affixes three black eyelashes onto each of my blond lashes. These procedures may sound indulgent, but for me, they are ...

20+ Awesome Gifts For The Impossible To Shop For

Shopping for holiday presents follows a simple flow — identify the giftee, then find a gift that works. But sometimes, it happens the other way around. Making our way through store after store, we end up gravitating toward something without a person in mind, but putting it back on the shelf isn't an option. Yes, some gifts are that good.It's easy to dismiss potential presents-to-be if there's no obvious future owner. But, sometimes all the fun is in buying the item, then figuring out the lucky ...

For Whatever Reason, Brands Want Our Pits to Smell Like Holiday Cheer

I'm not sure if I should take this as a hint, but in the past week, I've received a vast array of deodorant on my desk. I'm not upset because deodorant is something I hate buying but actually desire to have on my body at all times. What's unique about many of these deliveries is that they are natural deodorants with a holiday scent. Brands like Native and Schmidt's have come out with their latest holiday offerings. And you know what? Kudos to said brands for making deodorant relevant this time o...

Too Faced's Glitter-Packed Palette Will Make Your Eyes Shine Like Diamonds

People usually fall into two camps: those who love glitter, and those who loathe it. If you are in the former, Too Faced just released a palette you need. The Pretty Rich Diamond Light Eyeshadow Palette ($49) contains some of the most opaque glitters I've ever used and I'm blown away by the collection of shadows accompanying them. Three of the glitters in the palette - a white gold called Diamonds for Breakfast, a pink-copper shade called Diamond Glitterati, and a gold named Fluent in Diamonds -...

"Ugly Sweater" Nail Art Is a Thing, and It's Actually Cute

Why People Are Naming Their Babies Ivanka & Melania
