Tatcha’s New Brightening Serum Completely Faded My Acne Scars in Less Than Two Months

The Tatcha Violet-C Brightening Serum ($88) is many things, but first, let's discuss what it is not: a bottle of instant results. It takes dedication and daily use, and though the results were gradual, they were impressive, which is why I can say with unapologetic zest that the Tatcha Violet-C Brightening Serum has given me the brightest, most even skin - in both texture and tone - I've ever had. That's a loaded statement, I know, but for the past month and a half, when anyone has asked me abou...

The Surprising Product Used to Create Lady Gaga's Metallic Winged Eye Liner

Lady Gaga always keeps us guessing. Whether it's announcing a residency in Vegas - aptly named Enigma - or showing off her acting chops in a little film people have been raving about - A Star Is Born, maybe you've heard of it? - she's not one to keep people feeling like they know what's next for her. That's why her legions of fans adore her. (Myself included - little Monsters unite.) On the beauty front, we at POPSUGAR love covering Gaga for this reason as well.

Fresh’s Latest Night Cream Gave Me the Dewy Skin I Thought Only Existed on Instagram

Glass skin, "dewiness" - it's all semantics. You choose whatever you want to call the hypershiny, impossibly soft-looking complexions that are taking over your Instagram feed. For some, the look takes a multi-step makeup routine. For me, the secret is in this one jar. The Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Dream Night Cream ($48) is a moisturizer that the brand has prescribed for bedtime, which is why I first tried it. When I slathered it on, I noticed its light citrus scent, which reminded me of fres...

7 Skin-Illuminating Ingredients That Might Replace Your Vitamin C

Dermatologists have long touted vitamin C as the be-all, end-all of antioxidants in skin care — and for good reason. Decades of research show that, used topically, ascorbic acid and its derivatives can lighten hyperpigmentation, encourage collagen production, and brighten the complexion overall, which are three things we'll never say no to.But when it comes to stamping out dullness, C isn't the only game in town. In fact, if you ask some derms, the idea of relying only on vitamin C as a one-and...

Taylor Swift Is Living Out All Our Disney Dreams With Ariel's Mermaid Hair

This New Year's Eve, Taylor Swift threw one of her epic parties and asked her guests to arrive in a costume representing their childhood hero. Lucky for us, a mini Swift enjoyed watching Disney's The Little Mermaid and dressed as Princess Ariel. While it's rare for the singer to not pull off a look, we were especially impressed by how well she pulled off the long red wig she paired with her signature red lip. Considering that Swift also wore a red wig in her "Babe" music video, we're hoping...

Where To Buy Well-Made Lingerie For Under $100

We can't be the only ones who scratch our heads at the insane prices lingerie can go for. While we'll be the first to point out that luxury lingerie deserves admiration for its intricate designs and delicate fabrics, purchasing a pair of panties at a cost equivalent to a designer dress seems mind boggling. Dressing up — or down depending on how you see it — shouldn't involve also stripping your bank account in the process. And if we're digging deep into the intent behind shopping for lingerie i...

What I Miss About Berlin When I’m Abroad

Every time I spent a longer period of time abroad, staying in big cities always make me aware of what I appreciate the most about life in Berlin. Granted, it is exciting to roam through the restless streets of Bangkok or indulge in some ice cream while watching the sky go up in flames at sunset hour in LA, but never would I trade in Berlin for any other city in the world. Maybe this feeling can be blamed on the fact that I grew up here, but I believe that if you fell for Berlin once, you will st...
