There's no better harbinger of spring-ready skin than flushed cheeks and just-bitten lips. But as the weather heats up, even the most perfectly applied blush and lipstick can start cruising down your face. These new multi-tasking lip and cheek colors pack a punch in the pigment department, blend easily and impart a long-lasting flush. But here's the kicker: In this new crop of lip and cheek tints, you'll find a few that give your skin that classic luminous, dewy glow, but if you're looking for something with a little less shine, check out the new formulations with a mattified satin finish. read more
You fall head over heels for a $58 BB cream that leaves your skin soft, dewy and impossibly clear -- and you're quite sure there's no other product in the world that will make you look so youthful and radiant. So you do want any beauty-product-obsessed girl on a budget would do: splurge on another bottle and eat ramen for the next week. No matter how much you love a product, it can be hard to justify the price tag, especially on day six of shrink-wrapped noodles. While there truly are some magical beauty products out there for which there is no substitute, plenty of expensive department store beauty products have a drugstore doppelganger that works just as well -- and for a lot less money. We road-tested every popular beauty dupe on the market to find out which high-end beauty products are worth the splurge and which ones you may want to reconsider. read more
Foundation has come a long way in the last 10 years. BB creams and CC creams have taken over the category, and even traditional liquids now pack good-for-your-skin ingredients. However, compact foundations have seriously lagged behind. They're notoriously drying and tend to look flat and unnatural -- that is, until now. read more
Every 15 seconds, seven tubes of Maybelline Baby Lips are sold. Maybe it's Maybelline, or maybe it's that the best tinted lip balms offer complexion-brightening, unfussy color plus tons of moisture. While we don't dispute the amazingness of Baby Lips, we wonder how other, new tinted lip balms stack up against the most popular brand. These eight new lip balms -- which deliver a kiss of color, a heaping dose of moisture plus long-term benefits including age-fighting antioxidants -- are about to up your tinted-balm game, big time. read more
Dirty little secret: I wear mascara to the gym. Without it, my blonde lashes disappear, which makes me feel freakish. What I've learned is: Not all waterproof mascaras live up to their claims -- and a sweaty workout can leave me with smudges around my eyes (a dead giveaway that I'm high-maintenance). read more

If our mascara review section is any indication, the majority of you have found your mascara soul mate: the can't-live-without-it, life-changing product that gives you the fluttery lashes of your dreams. In beauty-speak, we call this a Holy Grail product (HG, for short). But if your HG mascara isn't waterproof, that makes situations that call for budge-proof makeup (e.g. your wedding day, the series finale of "Parks and Rec") pretty tricky. And that's where these waterproof topcoats come in. read more
I am obsessed with makeup brushes. Case in point: I have to set aside at least an hour to clean my entire arsenal. Buzzing foundation brushes, egg-shaped sponges... I've swiped, blended and dusted with just about every type of brush out there. So naturally, when I saw the gorgeous, toothbrush-shaped brushes from Artis, which claim to revolutionize how we apply makeup, I had to get my hands (and makeup) on them. to see if they were more than pretty designs and clever marketing. read more
Search "#makeuptransformation" on Instagram, and you'll understand the full power of makeup. Just a little (OK, a lot of) well-placed bronzer and eyeliner can change a normal-looking girl into anyone from Captain Jack Sparrow to a real-life Disney princess. read more
Fun fact: Back in the day, supermodel Iman toted her homemade foundations along to her fashion gigs for 14 years. Why? Makeup artists didn't have anything in their expansive kits to match her darker complexion. Fast-forward to the present and lines like L'Oréal and YSL have added darker shades to their signature products, but black women are still struggling to find the perfect match. Behind all of the "Caramel" and "Coffee" foundation tones, there's a basic lack of knowledge about dark skin tones. Many cosmetic companies only produce one or two dark shades with one or two undertones -- and this is one category where "one or two sizes fits all" doesn't work. At all. read more
