15 Spring Beauty Products Our Editors Used To The Last Drop

After you've swapped out your winter coats for eyelet sundresses, sent off your taxes, and bleached your bathtub, there's one more step before spring can officially commence: a cosmetics clean out. The changing season is the perfect time to recycle any old or expired products — or the ones that just aren't sparking joy in the way that they used to.Since we know how hard it is to let things go, we're making sure the products we do add to our collections are worthy of that real estate. And, for o...

We Tried Everything From Glossier Play — & Here's What's Worth The Hype

This morning — after over a week of waiting to find out what, exactly, that mysterious logo would stand for — Glossier finally unveiled Glossier Play. When we learned that the collection would be a colorful one full of neon eyeliner pencils and tiny pots full of glitter, a hard break from the brand's signature flesh-y tints, we knew we had to try it. All of it.Once we got our hands on the shiny new goodies, which just dropped today on the Glossier site, we thought it best to share our honest ta...

We Tried Bhad Bhabie's CopyCat Makeup Line — & Here's What We Think

With an overabundance of products and marketing hoopla in the beauty industry, it takes a lot for a brand to break through the noise and get people talking. But that's exactly what CopyCat Beauty did when it announced Danielle Bregoli, a.k.a. Bhad Bhabie (a.k.a. the "cash me ousside" viral star), as the face of its brand last month.The $900K partnership was met with shock and bewilderment, and the controversy didn't stop there. People were also side-eyeing the fact that the brand shamelessly of...

The 20 Products Our Editors Were Loving In February

If there's anything that teases springtime more than a groundhog or bloggers sharing throwback photos in floral dresses on Instagram — we get it, #WaitingOnSpring — it's the beauty industry. Before we've even stored our puffy coats, brands are releasing a ton of new products. At least, testing out all the newness serves as a distraction while we wait for that warm weather.From bold eyeliner to curling creams, the beauty aisles were overflowing with brand-new innovations this past month.

We Tried Glossier's New Shade Range — & This Is Our Honest Opinion

The enthusiastic fans of beauty brand Glossier will tell you that it's more than the millennial-pink packaging that makes them stan over every new launch. The company has managed to master the art of creating products with a skin-first, makeup-optional approach. But for those with tan-to-dark skin tones, it's been tough to join the Glossier bandwagon because the coverage products were limited to five shades. (In comparison, there are many companies that offer up to 60 options in their complexio...

The 10 Products Our Editors Used Over & Over Again In January

Between the longest government shutdown in U.S. history, two major awards shows, melodramatic pageant-girl feuds on The Bachelor, the battle of Fyre Festival documentaries, and 10 Year Challenges (are those over yet?), the first month of 2019 felt a whole lot longer than 31 days.

9 Moisturizers Our Editors Swear By For Their Dry Winter Skin

It’s a cold, cold world out there right now, with temperatures in the Midwest dipping past Antarctic levels and polar vortexes fast becoming the new norm. In times like these, protecting skin against dryness, tightness, and irritation turns into a full-time job — along with layering, canceling plans, and calling your landlord about how ungodly freezing it is in your bathroom.This is all to say that now is not the time for pretty little moisturizers that look and smell nice in the jar.

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.

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 ...

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?
