- Yay, CoverGirl! Now we just need every other company to get on board.
- I was fortunate enough to visit both Armani's and YSL's NYC pop-up shops around this time last year, so this season I really wish I could get to Chanel's.
- I'm siding with Allure on this new makeup line for kids. It's not that I don't think children shouldn't enjoy makeup - I just bought some as a Christmas present for my 9 year-old niece (per her request) - but as the article notes, I'm uncomfortable with the marketing and bigger issues that go along with the makeup itself. The fact that it even has "pretty" in the name is troubling.
- There were lots of "big picture" articles on beauty this month, from Temptalia's Christine pondering the ever-quickening pace of new beauty releases to Nylon's state of the industry in the U.S. Along those lines, while we're making slow progress towards racial inclusivity, we still have a long way to go.
- Glamour has more on the "death" of mascara. I can honestly say I don't think this product will ever go away unless we genetically engineer everyone to have naturally long, full, dark lashes. Not everyone has the money and time for extensions or Latisse. (I use the latter and still feel the need for mascara, as another delightful side effect of aging is that the tips of my lashes aren't as dark as they were.)
- "It’s clear that some Korean women weren’t doing a double-cleanse simply because they wanted to, and that now they’re fighting back." The Cut has an interesting piece on Escape the Corset, a Korean backlash against ridiculous beauty standards.
Why should your eyes, cheeks and lips have all the fun? Let your teeth in on some color play.
- This is a really good idea and I'm wondering how I could implement something similar for the Museum.
- I wasn't the only one who had a big birthday in November. One of my idols celebrated her 50th! Her latest venture is pretty amazing (of course) so make sure to check it out.
How are you? Are you ready for the holidays?
