Killer Heels: 15 Shoes You Would Never, Ever Be Able to Walk In

We admit it: For the sake of beauty, we're willing to put ourselves through a lot. Stinging lasers in the name of line-free skin, hair-ripping wax for a smooth visage and scalp-burning bleach for lighter locks -- these practices don't raise any eyebrows 'round these parts. But, everyone has to draw the line somewhere. When it comes to crazy, over-the-top, real-people-wouldn't-dream-of-wearing-them shoes, we put our foot down.   read more

The Prettiest, New-for-Fall Eye Shadow Palettes

Here's the problem with eye shadow palettes: They look beautiful, enticing us to buy them, but when it comes to actually using them, we tend to have a favorite color or two, and the other shades go to waste. Sound familiar?   read more

The Prettiest Commitment-Free Tattoos Ever

Confession time: I'm one of those people who got a tattoo when she was younger and grew to regret it shortly thereafter. (What can I say? I'm impulsive.) So when I first started seeing metallic temporary tattoos on the music festival circuit and at the beach, I was enthralled. There are now dozens of designs of these shimmery gold, black and silver tattoos in every pattern you could want. These metallic tattoos can be worn as body art or eerily realistic-looking jewelry. Most products last four to six days and rub off with ease using coconut oil or baby oil. And each tattoo comes on a sheet with multiple styles, so you can cut up the designs and remix them however you like.   read more

I [Heart] Carbs

So, unless you haven't picked up a ladymag in the past year, you know that juicing is this big deal right now. I think juicing can be a positive thing to give your body a break and a quick hit of vitamins and minerals, but I believe fruits and veggies have fiber for a reason.

Spurred into action by your crossover into bad skin territory, you book the first facial appointment available. Surely, an hour on the table in some able aesthetician's hands will get you back to glowing. You zone out while your aesthetician slathers blissful-smelling concoctions on your face, with visions of clear, lit-from-within skin dancing in your head. You're so relaxed, you barely even remember swiping your credit card and being steered out the door. When you break out a few days later, you wonder: Is it a coincidence? Am I just purging? Or did I put my skin into the hands of a bad aesthetician?   read more

6 Amazing, No-Flake Mascaras

Flakes: They're my bugaboo. I don't like flaky people, and I really don't like flaky mascara. It's been 20 years since I first picked up a mascara wand, and I still haven't found a formula that doesn't fall all over my cheeks or scrape the s!&# out of my cornea. A truly flake-free mascara, I decided, was about as plausible as a sharknado.   read more
