It’s Spring Makeover Time! Here Are Two Products I’m Loving

Next week marks for the first day of spring, but last night the new season was alive and well in a suddenly balmy Los Angeles. Those who don’t live here tend to think that we’re all running around in tank tops in February—but it is so not so. These last few days however, have given us a taste of what’s to come—which means I’ve been thinking about spring makeovers. It’s completely Pavlovian for me. The temperature... Read More

Product Reviews: W3LL People Multi-Use Color Sticks, Eyeliner, and Eye Shadow

Guys! I have four new favorite makeup items! I’m going to review them all at once, since they’re all from W3LL People. 1. Universalist 1 and 2 as a duo pot—or as separate sticks.

As clean-faced as I’ve gotten through this process, blush has emerged as the one product I do not like being seen without. I’m loath to admit that I even sometimes dab a little on... Read More

Product Review: Kjaer Weis Cream Blush (Slash Lipstick)

Ever since I heard about Kjaer Weis’ line, I was excited to get my paws on it. A lover of beautiful packaging and high-performance natural products, I’m never so pleased as when the two combine for a really appealing aesthetic experience—which this most certainly is. I say “slash lipstick.” Technically this little stunner is, as the title suggests, a cream blush. But I’ve clearly been playing with naturals too long... Read More
