Posted by 07.03.14

For those who love to wear patriotic colors, this weekend is all about you! Fortunately, red, white, and blue never looked classier. Here are several beautiful ways to show your love for the stars, stripes, or a blend of both:

The  “American Flag”  Manicure 

These nails are not as intimidating to create as they look. First, use Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-On Manicure ($5.99 – $7.99) in Bright as a Feather as your base nail. Diagonally paint the bottom left hand corner of the imPRESS nail with red polish and use a white polish  to draw in the stripes directly over the red polish. To finish off the look, use the silver stars from KISS Salon Secrets ($9.99) and place them on th

OIL-FREE, PLEASE: THE GROWING QUEST FOR OIL-FREE PRODUCTS

Despite a growing awareness and availability of face and body oils, brands are facing pressure to produce oil-free versions of best-sellers because women are nervous about slathering anything kitchen-friendly on their face.

Here are some oil-free moisturizers and smoothers to get your summer off to a perfect start:

Peter Thomas Roth Oilless Oil ($38):

In response to a growing need for oils—without the greasy texture—Peter Thomas Roth developed the first “oil-less oil,” a purified squalene product that looks and feels like the real thing but also helps control breakouts.

REDKEN’S NEW COLOR EXTEND MAGNETICS COLLECTION

Posted by 06.27.14

Sulfate-free shampoos are not new: in 2008 Good Housekeeping reviewed its first brush with products formulated without sodium lauryl sulfates (SLS).

While that review wasn’t exactly glowing in the beginning (the reviewer complained that the shampoo wouldn’t produce suds, for starters) by the end of her trial she reported that her hair, in fact, was satisfactorily clean.

Surfactant-free shampoos have come a long way since then, and one of the newest launches in the category is the Redken Color Extend Magnetics ($29-$33) line. The objective of SLS-free hair-care is to preserve color in color-treated hair. In addition, there is some controversy that sodium lauryl sulfates could be carc

MAC LAUNCHES MOODY BLOOMS COLLECTION

Posted by 06.25.14

Poison ivy, night-blooming jasmine, and other threatening flora sound like great material for film noir, but not so much a makeup collection.

But M.A.C.’s Moody Blooms collection, which launches in stores on June 26, is all about phosphorescence, gleam, and a dark poisonous quality—which actually translates beautifully into a brooding makeup collection.

First there are the metallic eye shadows that look intense and other worldly; dark greens and plums—the shade you’d expect to find in a rainforest; and plenty of beautiful eye liners, courtesy of M.A.C. ‘s great Fluidline formula. Expect electric colors—these are moody blooms after all—so there are bright pops of color in an oth
