Serious Hair Hydration: Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask

I’ve recently embarked on an insane fitness challenge that has me taking one 60-minute spin class every for 60 days in a row. By day 15 of the challenge, my body felt amazing but my hair felt horrible. After having to wash and blow out my already dry hair once and sometimes twice a day, […]

Tarte Smooth Operator: See Ya Later Fake Baked!

Bronzers can be tricky — I learned that at an early age. But then I met a little bronzer from Tarte cosmetics and life got a little smoother. I’ve been hooked on the Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder since. The powder is the perfect shade of bronze and the container is designed so […]

Call to Duty: Miracle Skin Transformer Treat & Conceal

Miracles come in all shapes and sizes, but I have to say that I didn’t except such a big miracle to come out of such a little tube. Miracle Skin Transformer Treat & Conceal is a true testament to its name. I didn’t give this concealer much thought at first glance – I’ve tried so […]

Divine Intervention: Philosophy Divine Color Lip Duo

Full disclosure – I’m a lipstick snob. I’ve tried every brand from high-end to drugstore, lip stain to lip gloss, plumper to liner.

Practical Magic: Josie Maran Organic Argan Oil

I am in love with Josie Maran Organic Argan Oil. The type of love that prompted me to rush out and snag two more bottles to ensure I never (ever) run out. What’s so great about it? You can use the oil as your daily moisturizer, as a treatment for split ends, to condition cuticles, […]

Killer Tan on Demand: Jane Iredale Tantasia Self Tanner

I don’t know about you, but I feel a billion times more beautiful when I am tan. I’m not sure if it’s my skin tone or hair color, but I definitely can’t rock the pasty sultry look like Twilight beauty Kristin Stewart. I also have a mega-fear of skin cancer (and you should too!) so […]

Lock, Stock and Smoking Volume: Living Proof Full Thickening Mousse

While I fluctuate between wanting sleek, stick-straight hair and full-blown volume, my styling options are limited because my naturally wavy hair is also naturally limp at the roots. Thank goodness for little miracles like Living Proof’s Full Thickening Mousse. Hasta la vista, limp locks! The name is self-explanatory – it’s a super light mousse that […]

When in the Shower: Take Wen Pomegranate Cleansing Conditioner!

Years ago, I saw an infomercial for a specialty shampoo and conditioner blend called Wen, an extremely gentle hair and body care line created by celebrity stylist Chaz Dean. I remember thinking the product seemed great but I hesitated to pick up the phone because I had been fooled by so many other infomercials (hello skincare systems […]
