I'm a Beauty Editor With Major Anxiety, and This Is How I Practice Self-Care

When your job is testing out different ways to take care of yourself, the concept of "self-care" can become a challenge. As a beauty editor, the lines between work and personal time become blurred, and it can be difficult to unwind. I have always used beauty rituals to alleviate my stress, but on days when my anxiety disorder is out of control, I need to take a step back and find a balance. Fortunately, I've found a combination of products and rituals that work for me, which include not only be...

My Teeth Whitener Is Only $11, and Even My Dentist Comments on My Pearly Smile

As a broke future beauty editor in 2013, I was a college student without a whole lot of spending money for cosmetics. I spent hours on YouTube researching the most affordable and effective products so I could indulge my beauty obsession while still being able to afford groceries. While watching a Kandee Johnson video, she revealed that she used Plus White Five Minute Whitening Gel ($11) to get her teeth white. Curious, I ran to the drugstore and picked up the white tube, and I have been using i...

I'm a Beauty Editor, and This Is What I Pick Up at Walmart

As a beauty editor, I get to see, try out, and review dozens of products monthly and do it for a living. It's definitely a dream job, but even a beauty editor has to make a Walmart run once in a while. There are certain drugstore staples I really don't want to have to go without, even if there are plenty of options available in my office to choose from. Some items I discovered as a teenager, and some only recently, but I make sure I'm never without these incredible and affordable products. Keep ...

I Piled on Layers of This Mascara All Day, and It Didn't Clump, Smudge, or Flake

Personally, when I apply mascara, I don't want it to look "natural." I'm putting it on for a reason: I want my lashes to defy gravity, be blacker than black, and look super long. For nighttime use, I'd prefer them to be even more dramatic, so I apply additional layers. When I tried the new Pat McGrath Labs FetishEyes Mascara ($28), I hoped that the legendary makeup artist wouldn't let me down. Luckily, this tube of inky goodness totally lived up to my expectations. I applied a few coats in the m...

My Skin Is Dry From Head to Toe, So This Is What I'm Shopping on Amazon to Help

As a beauty editor, it's my job to test out each product that comes on the market, and throughout the years I've come to know which items really work. Any beauty problem my friends or family might have, they turn to me for the answer. Occasionally I have to remind them I'm not a dermatologist, but overall, I'm usually able to help them. This month in particular, I've been suffering from my own complexion issues. The cold Winter air and dry heating I experience both at work and at home has been ...

9 Makeup Removers Even People With the Most Sensitive Skin Can Use

Removing your makeup before bed should be an essential part of your skin care routine, but if the product you're using to take it off is causing breakouts, irritation, or stinging, it can be counter-intuitive. For makeup-lovers with sensitive skin, it's essential to use a fragrance-free, gentle cleanser that won't dry out your skin, or worse, cause an allergic reaction. We've selected some of the best makeup removers for your skin type so you can get that foundation and mascara off in peace. Che...

Benefit's New Liquid Liner Is Making Me Reconsider My Holy Grail

As a daily winged eyeliner wearer for the last decade (I feel so old), I've tried dozens of liquid liners in the hope of replacing my original love, a drugstore inkwell that was reformulated and never the same. Since then, I've searched for a product that was as finely tipped, wet, pigmented, and easy to apply. While I've found a few that I like, they have never been as good as my first makeup love. When I heard that Benefit's new Roller Liner ($22) was so good from POPSUGAR UK editor Tori Crowt...

Some of the items in the aisles of your local drugstore have the best items on the market, and it's time you consider revisiting some of them in the new year.

This $10 Eye Shadow Palette Has So Many Colors, You'll Want to Wear Them All at Once

My guiltiest pleasure has long been bright, colorful eye shadow palettes from the drugstore. My vanity drawer is packed with them because each one is fun to experiment with, but the low price point means that if I decide not to use it frequently, I haven't wasted any money. That being said, the shadows in the Profusion Metallics Eyeshadow Palette ($10) are well worth the price you pay for the 24-shade collection. Each color is creamy, pigmented, and unbelievably shimmery. These are the type of h...

I've Tried Countless Eyebrow Products, and This 1 Is the Best

I've long suffered from thin, wimpy brows with no discernible shape. They're so thin that I only got them shaped once as a teenager, and then never saw the point in getting them done again. After trying everything, including pencils, fiber gels, and chunky crayons, to pump them up, I finally settled on one game-changing product: the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade ($18). The product is so pigmented that after dipping my brush into the jar, I usually wipe some off in the cap to make sure...

Milk Makeup’s New Mask Is So Mess Free, No One Even Noticed I Used It at Work

This wasn't the craziest thing I've done in public - I've taken makeup selfies in the Chipotle bathroom, after all - but I decided to test out Milk Makeup's new Matcha Detoxifying Face Mask ($24) in the office to truly test its on-the-go practicality. The brand promised that this tube is perfect when you "gotta be somewhere in a flash" and I was eager to test out the claim. I hoped it would be portable and easy to use anywhere, which is why I decided to uncap it in the middle of my workplace ...

Smashbox Just Came Out With a Bigger Cover Shot Palette, and It's as Good as the OGs

I've long recommended the Smashbox Cover Shot palettes to my friends as a reliable group of eye shadows that are well worth the $29 price tag. When the brand launched its latest in the series, the LA Cover Shot Palette ($45), I was intrigued to see if these hues would be the same high quality I've come to love. The spectrum of colors are arranged into four sections of four shadows, signifying different color schemes you could use. While I prefer to switch up the colors and combine shades from d...

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 -...

Everything We Know About the New Zara Lipsticks

UPDATE: An earlier version of this story stated that Pat McGrath designed the new lipsticks. Pat McGrath was not involved.

My Face Has Never Felt Cleaner Than After I Tried This New Cleansing Duo

When I was growing up, all I wanted was to be squeaky clean. I shampooed my hair until I could hear the strands between my fingers, and I washed my face until my cheeks sounded like a squeegee on a shower door. Years later, I've found a product that replicates that feeling - sans the drying ingredients I was likely slathering onto my body each day. The Cleansing Duo ($68) is the first and only (so far) product from Then I Met You, a new line by Soko Glam founder Charlotte Cho. After years of c...

I Tried This $175 Face Cream, and - Dare I Say It - It's Worth Every Penny

In my three years as a beauty editor, I've gotten the opportunity to try hundreds of beauty products, but one always seemed to evade me: the La Mer Crème de la Mer. Legend has it that Barbra Streisand herself has used the $175 (for a single ounce) cream from head to toe, and anything that's good enough for the Funny Girl is good enough for me. When I researched the product, I noticed it even earned a Sephora Community Approved seal for its glowing recommendations from customers. So when I final...

This Dessert-Inspired Body-Care Line Doubles Down on Salted Caramel

The early 2000s were a simpler time, when we watched Jessica Simpson figure out if tuna was chicken or fish. In addition to her Newlyweds shenanigans alongside Nick Lachey, the stunning blonde had a cosmetics line at Sephora called Dessert Beauty. Each scent was sugary, sweet, and over the top, and we've been grieving the loss of the brand until now. Body-care brand Being by Sanctuary Spa has spunky, fun packaging and the same sugary-sweet scents Simpson's line was famous for. One product in pa...

I Wore Nothing but Huda Beauty's New Concealer to See How Much It Covers

After Huda Beauty's foundation was able to completely cover my hives during an epic allergic reaction last year, I was eager to try the brand's new concealer. The Overachiever High Coverage Concealer ($30) comes in 20 shades and contains 31 percent pigment, meaning it's very opaque. It's also fortified with green tea to erase signs of stress and aging and includes a cooling metal tip. Huda Beauty created the concealer to be multitasking, so you can hide acne, hyperpigmentation, under-eye circles...
