We’re loving the Black Bead and Silver Bead Lash. Just enough flair w/out being over-the-top, and at $8.50 a pair — well worth a try!

Q. I love all the fun funky bright nail colors for spring, but I work in a very conservative law office and having green or blue nails really isn’t an option.  I tried this once with a gorgeous deep blue Chanel polish, and caught endless grief over it.  Is there a nail color you recommend that is both on-trend and yet office appropriate?

A. Yes! The hottest trend in nail color for Spring is gray-beige, or “greige”. Greige polish is a mushroom/gray/taupe hybrid that ranges in intensity from deeper putty shades to sheer hues, making it easy to wear for any occasion. 

Chanel’s new Particuliere ($23) nail polish has adorned the nails of Hollywood’s trendiest stars, such as Eva Mendes, Gwenyth Paltrow, and Sandra Bullock, who wore it to the Golden Globes. O.P.I.’s Over The Taupe is also a great option, but perhaps our favorite (and probably more office appropriate), is Revlon’s new Gray Suede, which falls on the lighter side of the spectrum. Described as the “perfect gray nude”, beauty lovers and editors alike are crazy for the shade. It isn’t available until next month, but Teen Vogue Editor Eva Chen recently twitpic’d a sneak peek, and it’s totally worth the wait!



How do Jane, Julia, and Jamie always look so flawless as they’re walking the Red Carpet? They’re wearing Smart Cover concealing creme.

Developed by Flori Roberts, creator of Dermablend® and the leading authority in Camouflage Makeup, Smart Cover camouflages tattoos, dark circles, blemishes, age spots, skin imperfections, and more.  A staple in many a makeup artist’s kit, SmartCover is used on celebs like on Reese Witherspoon, Joy Bryant, Julia Roberts, Helen Mirren, Jamie Lee Curtis, and more to keep them looking picture perfect on and off the screen.


The ten-piece Smart Cover kit includes several different shades of the concealing crème, from light to dark, so you can use them to mix and match to create the perfect shade. It also comes with a color corrector to neutralize the deep tattoo pigment first, allowing the concealing crème to cover completely and blend seamlessly into the skin on the face and body. Moisture primer lotion, vitamin beauty stick for eye area, camouflage brush, blending sponges, and travel case are included as well. Smart Cover goes on creamy and smooth, is dermatologist and allergy tested, non-comedogenic, waterproof, smudge-resistant, and fragrance free.

No wonder the pros use it!


There are some days when we just love our jobs, and yesterday was certainly one of them. On one of the most gorgeous and warm April days in memory, we were treated to a delicious rooftop lunch at the Gramercy Park Hotel by the folks at Aveeno. We spent a few hours soaking up the fresh air, chatting with friends, sipping cocktails and testing out beauty products. If only every work day were this glamourous…



While enjoying the gorgeous setting, we had the opportunity to test out a brand new anti-aging line of products called Aveeno® Ageless Vitality™. This Elasticity Recharging System is a 2-step treatment that is patented for the treatment of the signs of aging. The result of years of research, we were told the system works by recharging skin’s elasticity and restoring its youthful look. OK, you had us at the “youthful” part.


We had the opportunity to meet some of the scientists behind the product who explained all the technical stuff about why and how it works on reducing lines and wrinkles, diminishing age spots and improving firmness, and we were officially impressed. But what really impressed us immediately was the fabulous packaging and thoughtfulness that went into creating a system that seems more akin to luxury brands than this affordable drugstore brand.

Each of the 3 systems (Day with SPF30, Night and Eye) includes 4 individually packaged 1-week tubes of the special biomineral concentrate. Referred to as “the gray stuff” by the Aveeno scientist, this is the truly special part of the system that attacks all of your trouble areas. The individual tubes keep the concentrate as fresh and pure as possible, a detail that we loved. Also enclosed in each of the systems is a special cream which activates the biomineral concentrate, so the two products work together for maximum effectiveness. We were especially wowed by the night cream which came packaged in a special pump that was so luxe, we can’t wait to add it to our nightly routine.

We tested out the various creams and of course the magical “gray stuff” on our hands and everything felt luxuriously silky and had a light, pleasant scent. We were each given the full regimen to take home with us and are excited to give it a proper at-home testing. Here’s looking forward to our new youthful-looking selves.
