Last night’s episode of Mad Men was hard to swallow. If you, like us, have been captivated by the series, and just as much the era, then hold onto your flowered minis because the ’60s are back in a big way. Major beauty brands have caught wind of Mad Men fever and launched collections inspired by the AMC show. Read More

I’m jaded. I’ve sent so many beauty products, it takes more than a shiny gold case to get me excited. While I do appreciate pretty packaging (what girl doesn’t. Tiffany blue is a legit color), I’m not a sucker for it. But then LAQA & Co. landed on my desk. The packaging was so cool, I wasn’t in a rush to open the nail polish pens and lip pencils. Each of the boxes feature the designs of new, up-and-coming young artists looking to have their voices heard. The goal is to help the artists get noticed, and they even get a cut of the profits. Love that! Here they are…
I had so much fun this morning at Windy City Live talking spring beauty trends and how to get them with products for all under $10. Check it out!
P.S. Here are some behind-the-scenes shots as WCL’s co-host Val and I get ready to go live.

Beauty writers, including myself, are guilty of over-using certain phrases when talking about products. Imagine how many pinky-red lipsticks are described as giving a “just-bitten lip look.”
However, there’s one that really, truly creates a gorgeous flush on lips.
Make Up For Ever’s Rouge Artist Natural lipstick in Folk, a creamy peach limited-edition color from the brand’s spring LA Bohème collection.
Native Union Pop Phone is not only cool, it keeps you safe from all that cellular energy. Found it at West Elm and gifted it to family members and myself over the holidays.
KeepCup makes my Starbucks runs easy and eco friendly because it fits under standard espresso machines. You can create any color combo you want when you order it. Cheers to KeepCup for sending me mine in The Beauty Girl grey and pink colors.
Just when you thought Kate Moss has done it all, she creates a lipstick collection with Rimmel. Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss is set to launch this spring and will feature five of the model’s favorite hues: deep brick red, royal purple, dusty rose, candy coral and blushed nude. The creamy formula is cased in a black tube, sealed with Kate’s signature. Anything this fashionista touches turns to sheer coolness; you might want to snatch up a tube or two.
Can you believe it’s been 20 years since makeup maven Bobbi Brown started her beauty empire? To mark this milestone, she’s come up with the lip palette of all palettes. The “1991 Lip Palette” is limited edition, pocket size and 20 shades deep!
It’s got the original ten lip colors that launched the brand as well as ten just-been-born shades so the options are endless: the new hues are bright, fun and meant to be mixed and matched with the everyday classics. From oranges and reds, to pinks and purples, to browns and neutrals, it’s all there. I’m no mathematician, but I’m thinking you can make at least a zillion and two color concoctions out of that. It even houses a lip brush and a large mirror.
