On the necessity scale of 1 to coffee, cleansing facial wipes are a grande triple nonfat latte (especially when you’re tired/hungover/on-the-go/all of the above). They’re perfect for getting makeup off and cleaning your skin when you just can’t muster the energy for a sink situation — and we all know how important it is to […]

Spoiler alert: I’m going to talk about cleansing your face with oil. DON’T HANG UP! Just hear me out. Oil has long been known for its makeup removing properties and of course, the moisturizing factor. As we all know, the more moisturized the skin, the more it glows and the YOUNGER YOU LOOK. Do I need […]

Cancel that Botox appointment (for now); it’s ANTI-AGING BEAUTY BREAKTHROUGH TIME! You may have heard about Marula oil being the new big thang on the product scene, and if not, BOY OH BOY am I excited to explain. But first, let it be known I am a longtime lover of oil for your skin–I will […]

I don’t really know how else to say this without sounding braggy, so I’ll just blurt it out: I hardly ever get blemishes. BUT WAIT, don’t hate me yet—my skin is dry AF, so while you ladies with more oily complexions may be pimple-prone, I’m aging more rapidly than you as we speak. Crows feet […]

You guys, I’ve tried a whole lotta’ beauty products; I’ve praised many, I’ve dissed others, and I’ve chosen not to write about some. I actually had an incident recently when a company sent me a pricier product and kept stalking asking me about when the post was going up. I finally had to say, “Listen, I […]

You know those products you discover and wonder, HOW THE HELL DID I EVER LIVE WITHOUT THIS!? This is one of them (ps, there’s a 25% discount at the bottom). Gleam Body Radiance is unlike any beauty product I have ever used. It was developed by superstar makeup artist Melanie Mills, who was the makeup department […]

What a year it’s been. Miley Cyrus thought she was going to end 2013 as the most talked and tweeted-about female singer, then Beyonce blindsided us and snatched up the honor in the 11th hour (suck on that, Miley). Selfies literally took over the entire Internet. The president built the worst website of all time […]

Hayden here bringing you another helping of top-notch product picks from the Pretty In My Pocket app. Each of these gems can help create all kinds of Halloween looks in addition to being just freaking awesome on a regular day.

laura mercier, ardell, tarte, brigitte bardot, products of the week, primp, pretty in my pocket

Hello again, friends! Hayden from Pretty in my Pocket (PRIMP) here bringing you, as promised, another weekly dose of beauty must-haves from our lady-lovin’ app. This week, our favorite products were inspired by one of the ultimate, jaw-dropping beauty icons, Brigitte Bardot. Between the bold lashes, flawless face, and gap-toothed, pouty smile, it’s safe to say that […]

Dry Oil

I love translucent finishing powder (I love Too Faced and Laura Mercier) to safeguard against shiny face syndrome, which can creep up (and screw up an otherwise pretty picture) even when you have dry skin like me. Dust it on after your BB cream/foundation/concealer/etc. for a flawless finish, and VOILA: No oily mess on your mug. BUT, […]

*Say hello to a new weekly series by our beauty product guru, Hayden Gray of Pretty In My Pocket (PRIMP), the badass app you all have by now (right?). Get excited! * Hayden from PRIMP here, bringing you your doctor-recommended, weekly dose of beauty booty from the PRIMP app. Seriously though, your mom called and […]

Good luck sleeping tonight. If you’re completely baffled (and terrified), check out the full story here, but yes, that is Madge rocking full gold grill, which seems to accentuate her evil eyes. While I love her old music (duh), I’m not a huge fan of the Material Girl as a person (the gays hate me for […]

Editor’s Note: First of all, I LOVE this post from guest blogger Hayden because who doesn’t love beauty bargains AND an excuse to visit CVS (so I have a weird drugstore obsession – SO WHAT). Second of all, I saw one product on this list in particular (*cough* Wet n Wild) and was like, “Hayden […]

Urban Decay is one of my most beloved beauty brands and they have been hyping up their new Revolution lipstick ($22) like it’s the latest Jay-Z album, throwing around bold lingo like “badass” (every other word), “insane,” “intense,” and “superior.” Obviously, I had to get my hands on these tubes that claim to be creamy, long-lasting, […]

Kids started school yesterday in Georgia. WHAT THE F*CK!? It’s early August!!! Where I’m from (Delaware, b*tches!), we sometimes started school AFTER Labor Day! These poor kids. It rained every day during their entire “summer” and now they have to go back to the classroom. How depressing. I mean, let’s hope they don’t start cutting. […]

Don’t worry, friends and faithful (or occasional) readers: This blog isn’t turning into a running photo montage of me. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I don’t know how those fashion bloggers do it. Most workdays, I’m in workout pants and a sports bra with a disheveled ponytail and no makeup. Fellas, […]

I stumbled across this Refinery 29 piece featuring SUPERmodel Cara Delevingeineilenlegne on the cover of a mag claiming to be wearing #NoMakeup, and when I read the comments, I was seriously disgusted. Ok, children; pipe down. CLEARLY there is a filter or some sort of photo editing happening here. Anyone with eyes can see that, […]

You know how Jennifer Lawrence is super beautiful, ridiculously talented, hilarious, beloved by the entire world, AND young, and you’re like, how is that even possible in one person? Well this is the Jennifer Lawrence of beauty products. Suki’s Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser ($11-$33) is a triple-threat with cleaning, scrubbing, AND effervescing abilities (have you ever seen […]

It’s time for another guest blog from Hayden of Pretty In My Pocket (psst, you definitely want to download the app ASAP for a sweet upcoming promo). Since we’re in the midst of festival season, she’s talking face paint; it ain’t just for kids at the carnival anymore, ladies. It’s a hip, edgy way to […]

Sorry, June 20; summer starts THIS WEEKEND, which means fun in the sun is a given. But with those warm rays comes the potential for sunburn (ouch) and peeling (gross), skin damage (read: making you look OLDER by the day), and the dreaded C-word (and I’m not talking about C U next Tuesday). We ain’t […]

Presenting another glorious guest blog from the witty and pretty Hayden of Pretty In My Pocket (which you all have downloaded and are using to step up your beauty product shopping, right??). In this installment, she tells us how to keep our faces from looking like we moisturized with bacon grease once that serious summer […]

Clearly two of my great loves in life are alcohol and beauty, yet I haven’t created my own line for either of those things. (WHAT THE F*CK AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE?!) Well, Drew Barrymore has both and they’re totally legit (unlike this mess). Her Italian Pinot Grigio is quality, crisp, and delicious AND […]

We have another kickass post from guest blogger Hayden of Pretty In My Pocket (aka PRIMP, the awesome beauty app I’m sure you’ve already downloaded, right?). I’m especially excited about this topic and you’ll see why… *** Don’t worry. I’m not about to flood your brain with uncomfortable memories from junior high parties by mentioning […]
