7 Editor-Approved Matte Lipsticks That Will Never Forsake You

For the average person, the promise to love someone (or some thing) for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health is reserved for wedding vows, 'til death do them part. For us, the same could be said about our favorite matte lipstick.There's a time and a place for glosses, stains, and sheer balms, but a good matte lip color is always a requirement to have on hand. After all, what's there to not love about major pigment that lasts through a burger and/or a kiss? Bu...

6 Razors That Actually Work — According To Our Editors

Remember the first time you shaved? It probably went something like this: One day, your mom came home with an extra set of pink razors and offered you some kind words of guidance like, "Please be careful and take your time," or, in my case, "Scream if something goes wrong." After years of watching those comically ecstatic Venus razor commercials, you knew roughly what to do once you got in the shower, sliding that pink razor over your armpits full of stubble and your hairy legs. What was reveal...

9 Skin-Care Resolutions We're Making For A Glowing 2019

After years of promising to cut back on cheese and hit the gym daily come January 1st, we've come to accept that most resolutions — big or small — are more of a work in progress than an instant transformation. But even though a new year doesn't guarantee waking up a brand-new person overnight, it's still the perfect opportunity to reset your intentions for the next 12 months and recommit to your goals. As part of our 2019 ambitions, we’ve set our sights on brighter, healthier skin.Last year, we...

10 New Beauty Products Our Editors Loved In December

Change is inevitable, and the next 12 months is bound to bring a lot of it. There are the new workout classes you'll love, the new restaurants you'll discover, and all the new shows you'll binge-watch. But when it comes to beauty products, it can be hard to ditch your faithful favorite for something new and innovative. What if it backfires? Trust us — even though you've been holding on to that same face wash for as long as you've been keeping that gym membership you never use — you've been miss...

The Worst Beauty Moments Of 2018 — & What We Can Learn From Them

We've seen our fair share of cultural low points this year. We cringed as kids dared each other to eat laundry detergent, Tristan Thompson cheated on Khloé Kardashian while she was in labor with his child, and Kanye West spewed a lot of nonsense. So yes, there were some missteps, and it's not fun to revisit them — but it's important we do, because those baffling, embarrassing, and downright insensitive controversies are destined to repeat themselves if we just brush them aside like yesterday's ...

We've been waiting patiently for more colors to drop in those sleek silver...

10 Eyelash Curlers Pros Swear By For Wide-Awake Eyes

Like primers, setting sprays, or ugly skin-care products, eyelash curlers don't get a lot of love. They offer no pigment or color payoff and they're scarily clinical, thus usually hidden in the bottom corner of our makeup bags. But pros tell us that the eyelash curler is one of the most overlooked makeup tools in our arsenal. Curlers can actually make a huge difference in the look of our lashes, drawing the eye upward and creating length and volume, without adding six coats of mascara — that is...

The Best Red Lipsticks, According To Our Beauty Editors

As much as we can appreciate a nude lipstick, sometimes we want a lip color that pops — especially over the holidays. What's a sparkly dress without a statement lip? But even though we're searching for ways to experiment with different shades and even texture ( hey, glitter lips), red lipstick is the gospel truth that will never steer you wrong.The good news: There are tons of red lip options on the market.

The New Launches Our Beauty Editors Tried & Loved In November

While you thought the worst of your beauty struggles were over when summer melted into fall — bye humidity, melting makeup, and chlorine-damaged hair — your focus shifts to new concerns once winter hits. We're talking about the dry skin, dull strands, and chapped lips that spring up on you as the temperature drops. That's why, as the weather changes, you'll be rearranging your beauty cabinet to prioritize products that address the skin-ravaging, hair-frizzing effects of the season.But between p...

Don't trust anyone with perfect skin who tells you they don't wash their face; you just know they're lying. And if we were to hazard a guess as to why, it's probably because they found The Cleanser — the one that vacuums pores 'til they're clean and tight, rinsing away those stubborn mascara marks hanging out under the lower lash line to leave skin baby-soft, glowy, and gorgeous — and they just don't want you to know about it. Again: not to be trusted.Instead, take it from our R29 editors, a gr...

18 Haircuts Our Editors Are Taking To Their Stylists This Fall

But the urge to get a complete hair makeover only comes about once — maybe twice — a year.

7 Editor-Approved Lipsticks You Can Get At The Drugstore This Fall

Adulting is indulging in things that make you happy but broke.

But luckily, quality makeup doesn’t have to be on the list of things that bring you joy (and your bank accounts grief) thanks to the drugstore beauty aisle.There’s a wave of new hair and makeup lining the shelves at mass retailers for fall, and among the products we’re hoa...

Well, kids, newsflash: One day, you'll grow up wanting more sleep (and wanting to live free of rent and other responsibilities, too).

It's been one year since Rihanna disrupted the beauty world with the launch of Fenty Beauty. In case you've been living under a rock, she started with a foundation range that includes a whopping 40 shades (!) and gave way to a movement towards more shade diversity that the internet now calls "the Fenty effect." Next came gorgeous eyeshadows, liners, and glitter highlighters that are anything but subtle — in the best way possible — and she hasn't slowed down since.So, what better to celebrate o...
