When it comes to face makeup, most of us will go to amazing lengths in order to find that perfect product. That one foundation, powder or concealer that completely hides spots, minimizes lines, smoothes texture and creates an overall flawless finish. (Does one such product even exist?!) We will spend a ton of cash -- maybe not on one product, but on the hundreds we've tested in a lifetime, read reviews until we're dizzy and, of course, allow makeup artist after makeup artist convince us that their product is the best. That's a lot of work for a category of makeup that shouldn't really get noticed, right? Well, in order to put an end to this madness and to hopefully save you a few bucks, we thought we'd share a list of the top-rated face powders according to our readers. See powders
The first thing I learned while watching the Netflix series "Orange is the New Black": Be thankful for bathroom stalls with doors. The dramedy, about a waspy New Yorker who gets busted for being a drug mule and ends up behind bars, is packed with teachable moments and covers the gamut of jailhouse clichés (Lesbians! Contraband! Shifty guards!), but what really stuck out was the inmates' undeniable ingenuity -- these women are the reigning queens of DIY. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade ... and when prison gives you maxi pads, make flip-flops (or upgrade to duct tape if you're fashion forward). Stole a screwdriver? Fashion a makeshift dildo! read more
Boyfriend tag vids on YouTube are a dime a dozen, but most aren't worth the time investment. Not so with the one posted by super-popular beauty blogger Michelle Phan who put her decidedly gorgeous naked face in the hands of her hottie (if you're into that look) French model boyfriend Dominique Capraro. read more
When you think of the 1970s fashion era, visions of glitz, glam and gold lame no doubt pop to mind. It's this very essence, of the excess of the disco days gone by, that MAC seeks to capture with its new fall collection. To be sure the makeup giant does the decade justice, they've tapped into the creative genius that was the late, great style icon, Antonio Lopez. read more

Three hundred and thirty-six. That's the number of hours the average woman spends kissing in her lifetime. And sure, while Megan Fox blows the average for us norms, when we stumbled across this freaky fact, intrepid researchers here at the office thought: Hey, we like to kiss. Heck, we'd like to kiss a lot more. Who can help us with that? read more
As any Sephora die hard can tell you, there's nothing quite like amassing Sephora's Beauty Insider points, which you can redeem for beauty and skincare samples. It's like Christmas, if Christmas involved buying tons of makeup and perfume for yourself (which it does for me). read more

Quick, what do Lindsay Lohan, Heidi Montag, and Pamela Anderson have in common?
Answer: Addictions to bleach-blonde hair, poor life decisions, and awful lip injections. Even with all the advancements in cosmetic surgery and the best surgeons money can buy, these celebrities can't seem to get a lip enhancement that looks, well, natural. Is there really no way to get plump-looking lips à la Angelina Jolie without ending up with overly-injected duck lips? See products
