Zara is Launching a Makeup Line

Your Zara addiction is about to get out of hand, because the fashion retailer is officially launching a makeup line. Inspired by "the behind the scenes magic in every new season campaign", the collection is debuting with a range of lip products. Made in France, the 'Ultimatte' lipsticks are the hero launch from the new range. Available in twelve shades, promising a velvety, high pigmented, matte finish. Zara has said their new cosmetics venture aims to bring "top quality, innovative, fun and oh-so affordable products". But, if lip products aren't really your thing, don't panic. The brand is calling this their "initial launch", which we're hoping means there is plenty more to come.   The only bad news is that the collection won't be available...

Beauty Gifts This Year 2018

It's November, which means scrolling through curated gift guides is as habitual as reaching for a sugar cookie when 3 p.m. hits. To switch things up from the highly-specific lists that break down the best gifts from what to get your dad based on his star sign — both of which are pretty damn clutch — we've decided to make it more personal. Because everyone knows that the best gifts come from the heart. Mini Lip Gloss Vault This lip gloss treasure chest is going straight to my sister, who — like me — has recently come to re-embrace the glossy, vinyl lip look in all its '90s glory. Tom Ford Beauty Boys Soft Lipstick Trio The king of luxury. Specifically, this fancy trio of Boys lipsticks, in three mom-approved...

KKW Beauty Glam Bible

"Sexy" is a loaded word, but to me, it's confidence and magnetism — everything that Kim Kardashian West emanates. When she released her KKW Beauty Glam Bible Bundle that allows you to re-create her sultry neutral-toned looks, I immediately wondered how that would translate on me. The kit equips you with everything you need to embody the word: a six-pan eyeshadow palette, two lipsticks, a gloss, lip liner, highlighter, blush, and — newly introduced to KKW Beauty — the line's first kohl eyeliner and mascara. (Most items can be purchased separately from the box set.) Read on to learn more about my experience with the each of them....

So where can you buy the NARS Advent calendar, and what does it have in it? I have all the deets you could ever need. If there's anything better than...

Wu-Tang x Milk Makeup Collection

Gilded dragons and the group's signature W's emblazoned on luxe black packaging: that's what you'll find in Wu-Tang's new collaboration with Milk Makeup. The beauty brand will be releasing a 24-karat, gold-plated mirror, a trio of lapel pins, and a box set of eight lipsticks (which you can also purchase individually). The collab celebrates Wu-Tang and Milk Makeup's relationship — the group even performed at Milk Gallery back in 2012 — and combined love of New York. The lipstick set is the star of this already-shining collection. It's available in eight buttery hues: Sacred (shimmery rose gold), Fire (matte red-orange), Chi (creamy true red), Flow (creamy warm rose), Frequency (glittery purple), Cypher (creamy woodrose), Ruckus (creamy pink), and Source (a deep red) — all...

The Honest Co. Hand Sanitizier Spray

There's really no time of year when you shouldn't be using hand sanitizer — especially if you, like me, live in New York City and come into contact with an unthinkable number of germs via the Subway or even the door handle to get into your office building.     But now that cold and flu season is officially upon us (reminder: go get your flu shot!), it's all the more reason to stock up. So you might as well stock up on a good one that's actually pleasant to use, like The Honest Co.'s version. It's plant-based and hypoallergenic, and I've found that it definitely doesn't dry out my hands as much as other formulas can. That's probably because this one (while, yes, being made...

Bond No. 9 New Bond St Eau De Parfum

Think of this new fragrance like a grown-up gourmand. No longer a dessert-derivative, this one's got teeth. The creamy vanilla, coffee, and cocoa are sexed-up with leatherwood and spicy patchouli. It's a scent that smells like a modern-day speakeasy — one with dark velvet wallpaper, glistening leather-upholstered booths, and a really good DJ. Here at Bond No. 9, we've always loved the low-key, unassuming, out-of-the-way NoHo side street that's been our headquarters and flagship since 1999. Today, this two-block cobblestoned stretch is no longer unassuming. Sure, it still exudes a vintage Downtown vibe. But dramatic changes have taken place on Bond Street. Over the past several years, it's evolved into a zone of casually elegant fabulousness for the millennial supermodels, the iconic movie stars, the politicos...
