The 7 Best Beauty Products Launching in January

It's no secret that I'm a sucker for fancy beauty products. (Remember when I fell in love with that $740 face cream?)

Pack These Minis and Breeze Through the Security Line

The first time I traveled without checking a bag, I was going to Hawaii, and the prospect of spending a week in 100-percent humidity without my favorite hair products was beyond stressful. Fast forward five years later, and I can successfully pack for a 10-day trip to Italy in only a carry-on -- but it takes some meticulous planning. TSA rules don't make jet-setting easy for those of us who think "packing light" means shampoo, conditioner, hair serum, face wash, moisturizer, eye cream … you get the idea.   read more

Your Most Embarrassing Beauty Problems - Decoded

When I was in third grade, I had a wart on my inner knee. I wanted to die every time I had to sit Indian-style, which was about seven times a day. Though I didn't know it at the time, I began practicing yoga -- assuming creative positions that allowed me to cover my wart. But it was of no use.

In an effort to one-up me (and apparently scar me for life, as I'm writing about it nearly two decades later), he shouted, "Emily has warts!" to anyone who would listen. The horror!   read more


December's Hottest Beauty Launches -- Just in Time for Santa

It may not seem like it, but December is a fantastic month for new beauty launches. Most beauty gift sets hit shelves in November (or even late October), and lots of brands save their big news for January. (I'm already excited about next month's story.) So December tends to be quieter on the launch front, but the products that do come out this month are extra special.   read more


The Black Friday and Cyber Monday Beauty Deals You Don't Want To Miss

I have girlfriends who refer to Black Friday as their version of the Olympics, but I think it's more like "The Hunger Games." While (in most cases, anyway) you're not actually fighting for your life, scoring the last pair of half-priced Vince Camuto boots in your size can feel like a major victory.   read more
