Do You Buy Your Beauty Products Online?

It’s not exactly news that people are buying more and more stuff online. Ecommerce sales are expected to hit a cool $370 billion by 2017. And just this past holiday season, UPS and Fed Ex struggled to keep up with the unexpected surge in online sales.

Product Review: Introducing Prada Lab, A Great Unisex Line (Finally!)

You guys!! It’s finally happened. We’ve found a line that is clean, affordable, and totally man-friendly in the way it looks, smells, and feels.

I gave a little talk with two of my favorite women in green beauty (precisely because they couldn’t look less green!): Anya Sarre, who told her hilarious a-ha story and gave great tips for looking... Read More

We’re Going to the Emmys!

What you’re looking at is 1200 books—books that I drove in my friend’s truck yesterday to a warehouse deep in Burbank, where they will be put into (extremely fabulous) gift bags headed to the Entertainment Tonight Emmy party on Sunday. [Insert girly screams.] The type of folks who usually get their products into these bags (think Rolex and resorts) are not, you know, two journalists trying to take on the beauty business. Needless to... Read More
