I Swapped My Nude Liner For a Sky Blue and Got All of the Compliments

In high school, I thought my go-to trick of white eyeliner would make me look awake and refreshed even when I was secretly staying up until 1 am watching Invader Zim on my iPod Nano. Unfortunately this, like most assumptions I made at 16, did not work out how I thought. It just looked like I had very bright, stark white eyeliner on, which is apparent in photos of me at this age. By the time I hit college, I had swapped white tight lining for nude for a wide-eyed look, and it was a huge improvem...

Supergoop Is Releasing the First Ever Eye Shadow With SPF - Here's Why That Matters

Sun protection company Supergoop is unveiling the world's first eye shadow with SPF with the Supergoop Shimmershade SPF 30 ($24 each). While you may think that sun protection on your eyelids is superfluous, you'd be mistaken. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, one in five Americans will develop skin cancer by the time they're 70, meaning that if you aren't protecting one of the thinnest and most delicate areas of skin on your body, you could be putting yourself at risk. While wearing sungl...

I Ditched My Pricey Serum For This Drugstore Lotion, and Holy Sh*t, It Works Wonders

I'm Victoria Messina, and I fell victim to splurging on trendy, made-for-Instagram skincare products. Ideally, this would be the part where other millennials respond "Hi, Victoria" in unison while sitting in a circle gathered at a Trendy Skincare Packaging-aholics Anonymous meeting, but alas, that group unfortunately doesn't exist (not yet at least), and I'm just sitting here at my desk, prepared to spill the details on the lotion that saved me from overspending on beauty products simply because...

I Couldn't Take Baths in My Tub Until I Found This $8 Product on Amazon

When I moved into my first adult apartment a few years ago, I had big plans. I was going to make my bathroom a pampering oasis, with a basket of Lush bath bombs, a selection Jo Malone bubble bath products, and even some Rituals bath oil so I could regularly participate in my favorite stress-relieving indulgence. To my dismay, I discovered fairly quickly that my bathtub would not plug. The little switch meant to stop the water (and my expensive products) from going down the drain did zilch, and s...

I Got a Facial on the Inside of My Mouth, and the Results Were Incredible

Facials: most of us know them, and many of us love them. At POPSUGAR, we're always looking for the most innovative treatments to step up our skincare game, and I just found my new favorite. When the opportunity arose to have an appointment with celebrity facialist Michaella Bolder, I jumped at the chance. Aside from having extensive knowledge of facials, she had one big selling point: her specialty is an inside-of-the-mouth facial. Yes, it sounds gross, but I promise it's not, and the results we...

All My Foundations Are Gathering Dust After Ordering This $10 Lotion on Amazon Prime

Let me start off by saying I'm a foundation girl. Ever since I started wearing Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturizer in high school, I've been loyal to slabbing that extra layer of makeup on my face. Years later, and throughout my time as an editor, I've accumulated lots of foundations from different brands. I have one I wear in Winter when my skin is dry, one for when I want to deslick over the Summer, one for a more natural look, one for a night out - the list goes on. But when my friend told me...

This Is the Best Blowdryer I've Ever Used – and It's on Sale Right Now

Dermstore is having a major sale right now and it includes many cult-status hair tools, including my personal favorite T3 Cura Luxe Hair Dryer. This blow dryer has been the only one I've used since I got it two years ago, and I'm unwilling to give it up for anything else. I hate having to dry my hair at all, but the Cura Luxe makes it so much easier and is jam-packed with features. First off, the dryer is lightweight, so my weak arms don't start aching halfway through my blow out, and also quie...

I Have Worn the Same $6 Liquid Eyeliner For 10 Years, and It Gets Me So Many Compliments

I'm a girl who likes to wear a sharp, inky-black cat eye on the regular. There's something about it that makes me feel both powerful and glamorous, so I have made it my go-to look since my teenage years. Time after time, friends, coworkers, and strangers have asked me the same question: "What eyeliner do you use?" There's nothing that brings me more joy than smugly telling them it's a $6 pick from the drugstore. Yes, I have been religiously swiping Wet n Wild MegaLiner Liquid Eyeliner on my lids...

Here's What 4 POPSUGAR Editors Really Think of Too Faced's New Better Than Sex Liner

After the massive success of the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara ($24) - which sells once every 7.5 seconds and is the No. 1 selling prestige mascara in the US, according to the NPD Group - the brand has decided to expand its collection by introducing the Better Than Sex Eyeliner ($21). The new brush-tipped pen, which launches at Sephora on March 17, dispenses an inky black liquid that Too Faced claims is waterproof, is flake-proof, and lasts for a full 24 hours. We enlisted four POPSUGAR edi...

These 17 New Skincare Launches Are Killer - and You're Going to Want Them All

We don't endorse all of Patrick Bateman's proclivities, but the man sure was ahead of his time when it came to skin care. Like many people today, he was dead-set on getting his routine right. (Pre-murder face mask, anyone? How about some ice to help you depuff you from your sins?) Since the 2000s, however, the beauty landscape has changed, and there are loads of new skincare innovations dropping this Spring that could make even a textbook narcissist and - err, fictional - psychopath feel so...

What in the Actual Hell Is a "Leg Mask" - and Where Has It Been All My Life?

I am of the firm belief that, as a beauty editor, no body part is too sacred for experimentation. Thou must be willing to lose the shoes to take the latest foot peel for a spin, or drop trou to investigate the skin-softening effects of a butt mask. That's just responsible journalism. Still, the propensity to treat my legs to anything beyond a nice shave once a month - resting on the hypothetical possibility that someone ends up in my bed one night - simply slipped my mind. Then Nair dropped a l...

You Can Rely on This Long-Lasting Lip Product to Never, Ever Transfer

It may look like a marker, but it's actually the most impenetrable lip tint you'll ever try. Popping off the top of The Mary Kay Lip Tint ($18) reveals an applicator that's reminiscent of the school supply you used on every grade school poster project. The rounded tip of the applicator allowed me the precision to line my lips closely to their edges before filling them in and deposited a highly pigmented liquid that dried almost instantly. Once the wetness completely flashed off, it felt as thoug...

I Got Ariana Grande-Length Hair Extensions, and It Was Weirder Than I Thought

On a scale from one to Ariana Grande, my interest in hair extensions teeters between one and two. I have nothing against them; it's just that up until last week, I couldn't even envision myself with anything but a lob if you paid me (although I am very open to trying, if that's on the table for you). That's because growing up, my mom had her own idea of what styles were cool, thankyouverymuch, and they looked more like the ever-arresting bowl cut, a mullet, and the shag. Then, when I got older, ...

The 1 Acne Product I Use When My Skin Has a Case of the Winter Blues

If I had a dime for every time somebody asked me, "What's that green sh*t you always have on your face?," then I would probably have enough dimes for a lifetime supply of said green sh*t, the Yon-Ka Masque 105 ($48). I was first introduced to Yon-Ka Masque 105 by my facialist five years ago with zits on my chin and the skin around my nose peeling off, and not a day has gone by that I haven't used it since. I have combination skin, meaning while my skin is generally very oily - like pizza, a boy...

I Lived the Goop Lifestyle For a Week - Am I Gwyneth Paltrow Yet?

Gwyneth Paltrow is the kind of person who swears by quartz stones and "breath work," and thinks pricking your face with a bee stinger is the secret to great skin. I, on the other hand, am about as holistic as a loaf of Wonder Bread. (We can probably all agree there's room for growth on both ends.) Still, there's something wildly appealing about Paltrow's intentional approach to beauty and self-care - an area I could stand to widen. Could there be a method behind the madness of floating around i...

Summer Fridays' New R+R Mask Will Save Your Irritated Winter Skin

Calling a face mask beautiful can be perceived as dramatic, but Summer Fridays deserves every ounce of enthusiasm for its dreamy new mask. To test the Summer Fridays R+R Mask ($52), I twisted open the rose-gold tube and gently dispensed the clear gel, which contains suspended exfoliating sugar crystals and rose petals. I slicked it onto my skin, felt it soothe and comfort my irritated dry patches, and set my timer to ten minutes. I used that time to read through its ingredients list, and found ...

Lasering My Bikini Line Made Me Feel 100 Times More Confident in a Swimsuit

The only beauty mistake I've made that's more embarrassing than tweezing half my eyebrows away is plucking the ingrowns on my bikini line. Because here's the thing: I didn't realize I was over-grooming in the first instance, and I was fully aware that I might not look so good in a swimsuit after destroying my nether regions. WTF was I thinking? "You desperately need to try laser," my best friend told me, staring in disbelief at the scars I created on my bikini line from all that picking and squ...

Hallelujah, I Finally Found the Perfect Foundation - It Covers My Blemishes and Stays on Forever

I'm incredibly particular about my liquid foundation. I have spent over a decade searching for the perfect option that ticks all my boxes, and had very little luck - until now. When I was out of my own usual choice, I asked my sister if I could use some of hers for the day. She's a total beauty junkie, and I knew she'd have something great for me to use. She gave me just one pump of her beloved Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation ($40), and I thought she was being stingy, but it was all I...
