Want proof? We challenged four editors to share the makeup staples behind their newly-adopted Fall beauty looks, with one cav...

This Month's New Skincare Products Beat Out Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Every Time

Flannel, apple orchards, pumpkin-spiced-pretty-much-everything - if you're not careful, October can start to feel more monotonous than Nadia's drug-fueled night in Netflix's Russian Doll. (Although, hey, that's a pretty good costume idea.) The one area that never fails to surprise, however, is the skincare department. In fact, there are enough product launches this month to keep even the most insatiable entertained. From a foamy new face wash tailor-made for people with sensitive skin to a super...

Reminiscing Vanuatu Fishing Trip Memories

Reminiscing Vanuatu Fishing Trip Memories The blue sky promises a good weather. You look down at your last few mils of coffee while you come to a realization that your long-awaited fishing trip is about to begin in just a few minutes. At the breakfast table, the other guests you met are telling you stories about their groups’ catch and how sad it is to be leaving the island and head back to their countries of origin. A few minutes later, a mate hollers at you to hurry up and jum...

I Got My Favorite Shampoo From the Gym, and It's Been My Best Beauty Hack All Year

I'm just going to come right out and say it: I love my hair. It's long and thick, with just the right amount of wave. Even though it has its issues (ahem, frizz), I still wouldn't trade it for anyone else's. I use an amazing hair serum but tend to stick to drugstore shampoo, and that's about as far as my haircare routine goes. I didn't really see the value in fancy shampoos or overly expensive products, but that all changed once I started going to the gym. There's a Barry's Bootcamp a stone's t...

1 Editor Shares Her Holy Grail Skincare Products, and They're All From the Same Line

When it comes to my skin, I do not mess around. There are so many different products that break me out or make my face red, so when I find something I like, I stick to it. And all the products I feel like have truly made a difference in my skin are from one brand: Sunday Riley. The packaging is beautiful and easy to travel with; there are options for many different skin concerns, and, most importantly, they work. Since using these six products, I haven't had a major breakout, which is huge for m...

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...

This Is the Only Face Mask I've Tried That Gives Me Glowing Skin Overnight

"Your skin looks great." It's one of the greatest compliments I can receive. As someone who has battled with my skin for years, I am finally being diligent about my skin care. I've learned that too much product overwhelms my face, so I stick to a few tried and true steps in my everyday routine. The one area I'm really excited to experiment with is masks. As previously stated, I've had a few skin issues I've tried to correct, among them clogged pores, acne scars, and dullness. All that means m...

This $42 Faux-Fur Coat Makes Me Feel Like a Straight-Up Movie Star

After realizing that most of my shopping experiences in Winter end with me standing under a florescent light in the dressing room the same way I entered into this world - naked and afraid - I have succumbed to the fact that there is no corduroy trouser or other cold-weather trend cool enough for me to sacrifice warmth. Instead, I stick to wearing ugly 10-pound knitted scarves and my reliable puffer jacket. Would you be surprised to learn, then, that I have never owned a fur coat (real or otherw...

This Magical Serum Completely Transformed My Hair, and You Can Buy It on Amazon

I have a love-hate relationship with my hair. I was lucky enough to be born with incredibly thick hair, but the downside is that it never quite does what I want it to. Plus, after a traumatic seventh-grade cut, I don't take chances when it comes to my hair - even though I've been going to genius hairstylist Nick Chavez to get my hair cut for the last 10 years. At the moment, I've got waist-length layers, and at my most recent appointment, when we were discussing all my hair woes, he gave me a pr...

2019's Best New Mascaras Our Editors Can't Live Without

There's a reason Grandma Sue has been using the same tube of mascara since 1972: finding a great new formula you love can be more convoluted than finding the perfect fitted jeans and can take the same amount of trial and error. That's the bad news. The good news is that we think 2019 is going to be the year that all changes. There is a new wave of mascaras hitting the market that promise to enhance your god-given assets - curling, lengthening, and fattening your lashes with aplomb. Think it's ...

The Standout Skincare Products Our Editors Are Loving This Month

Despite what every grocery store owner or Starbucks seasonal menu would have you believe, the best thing about October has nothing to do with pumpkins. It's also not that you finally have an excuse to watch 10 straight hours of horror movies (because, hello, we've been binge-watching The Handmaid's Tale for weeks) or to dress up and pick far more apples than you'll ever eat. No, the hands-down best thing about the month is the onslaught of Fall skincare launches hitting the market, which come e...

I'm a Mascara Snob, and This One Passes All My Tests With Flying Colors

Mascara, for me, is a desert-island beauty product - the only time you will ever catch me without it is if I'm working out in the morning. Seriously, I've even gone snorkeling with the stuff on; the goggles mean my eyes won't get wet. Because I love mascara so much, I'm always trying out new formulas, and I have a very strict set of standards by which I judge a product. It has to provide equal parts length and volume, it can't be clumpy, and it can't produce the dreaded under-eye flaking at the...

This Unlikely J-Beauty Product Makes Traveling Less Stressful - and It's Just $10

The friendly skies terrify me so much that just looking up stock plane photos for this post made me break out in hives. Luckily, I've found the beauty equivalent of a Xanax, and now I won't travel without it. When the MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask ($10 for seven) entered my life in October of last year, I w...

The Innovative Skincare Products Our Editors Can't Get Enough of Right Now

Numbers, while quite essential for the career trajectory of a psychometrician and financial analyst, are rarely considered by skincare consumers. That is, until you're googling the term to a whopping 554 million results, or scrolling through 44 skincare-related tabs on Sephora's drop-down menu to make shopping its thousands of products online more manageable. Of the 84,000 seconds that make up a single day, you're likely only dedicating around 600 of them to your skin routine, rendering it 221 p...

The 1 Perfume That's Perfect For People Who Hate Perfume

In life, love, and fragrance, I better identify with an 87-year-old. On Friday nights, I watch recorded episodes of Antiques Roadshow. My new hobby is knitting cat bonnets. Every morning, I emerge from my apartment in a haze of rose perfume. I'm not sure where my obsession with over-the-top, powdery scents came from. Maybe it's because my Yiayia was fond of Guerlain's Shalimar, or that I had an embarrassing B.O. problem I tried desperately to cover up in middle school. Whatever the reason, I am...

The Desert-Island Mascaras Our Editors Can't Live Without

Quite frankly, if there were a deserted island for every mascara that people claim they would bring with them when stranded, you'd have to start searching for more ocean. (Jury's still out on whether long, fluttery eyelashes could actually be considered an effective SOS plan.) Still, in a sea of formulas that each promise to lengthen, curl, or bulk yours up, choosing the right mascara for you can feel like a treasure hunt. So we asked POPSUGAR beauty editors to share the tubes they'd swim to sh...

I Hated Liquid Lipstick - but This 1 Changed My Mind

I was deeply obsessed with a pair of Hollister khaki pants during my sophomore year of high school. It was irrelevant that they were hideously unflattering on my pear-shaped body; all of my peers at school had them, so I was going to make it work, as Tim Gunn would say. (Had he seen the pants in question, though, he would have probably said, "This worries me," but I digress.) I forced my limbs into the pants through an arduous process, and once they were on, the material bunched tightly like a r...

The All-Time Favorite Fragrances Our Editors Can’t Live Without

You may not have known it when the eager scent peddlers were spritzing you in clouds of perfume with names like Sweet Sunshine and A Woman's Desire, but there can be an upside to surviving the telltale department store fragrance counter experience: when you discover one you love - it could be with you forever. That said, much like finding the perfect fitted jeans or the right dermatologist, finding a signature scent can take years of trial and error. So, to streamline the process - and because t...
