Beauty must-haves for spring 2013

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder

It’s time to clean out the old (i.e. all of that fall/winter makeup that’s currently in your makeup bag) and make room for all of this great new spring makeup that’s on the market!

Here’s a great rundown of all you need to start off your spring right.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder ($45 each, Sephora.com)

What It Is: A collection of six face powders that utilize photoluminescent technology to refract light, create transparent coverage and help to make skin look younger, even-tones and radiant.

Why You Need It: Who knew that a face powder would have the ability to make your skin look so luminescent and fresh? Upon application, it’s kind of like you just photoshopped your face, so all you see is glow.

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids ($7.49 each, Maybelline.com)

What It Is: Let the bold take you away with these 10 super saturated lipsticks that promise rich, bright color that promises to last for up to four hours.

Why You Need It: These lipsticks are the best way to experiment with lip color without putting a dent in your bank account. I was surprised to see that upon application, they don’t look tacky and each contains lip conditioners and honey nectar. This means that you’ll feel like you’re wearing a super pretty shade of lipstick instead of gloss and who wouldn't love that?

Make Up For Ever Technicolor Palette

Make Up For Ever Technicolor Palette

Make Up For Ever Technicolor Palette ($45, Sephora.com)

What It Is: If you aren’t rocking a bold lip for spring, try a bold eye color instead! This new palette from Make Up For Ever has you covered in every way possible. Inspired by the 1930s cinematic transition from black and white motion picture to color imagery, Danny Sanz (Creator & Artistic Director of MAKE UP FOR EVER), purposely over-saturated these eye colors to make them appear more alive.

Why You Need It: From Apple Green to Espresso & Beige, this palette contains pretty much every shade you’ll need for the spring season. Layer the colors for an intense look, or sheer it out with just a slight swish of the makeup brush that accompanies this kit.

Cover FX Anti-Aging Smoothing Eye Primer

Cover FX Anti-Aging Smoothing Eye Primer

Cover FX Anti-Aging Smoothing Eye Primer ($34, Sephora.com)

What It Is: Keep your eye makeup looking fresh no matter what the weather with this long lasting eye primer! Unlike most, this eye primer also works to soothe, hydrate and reduce eye puffiness. It’s also vegan, paraben, fragrance, gluten, mineral oil and talc free so it’s perfect for even the most sensitive of eyes.

Why You Need It: Primers work to keep your makeup looking fresh and sometimes eye makeup is the first to slide off in sweltering heat; which makes you wonder what the point of even applying eye makeup is in the first place! Even though I’m in New York where the weather is still a bit on the chilly side, I didn't have to worry about re-applying any of my eye makeup no matter what the shade (deep or light).

Revlon Color Stay 16 Hour Eye Shadow in Sea Mist

Revlon Color Stay 16 Hour Eye Shadow in Sea Mist

Revlon Color Stay 16 Hour Eye Shadow in Sea Mist ($7.49, drugstores nationwide)

What It Is: From Revlon’s Global Artistic Director Gucci Westman comes The Pacific Collection for Spring 2013! Inspired by sculptural sea glass and a touch of Tahitian glamour, Westman created some pretty amazing eye shadow palettes that are not only super affordable, but also deliver great staying power!

Why You Need It: There are two eye shadow palettes in the collection (Sea Mist & Free Spirit) but Sea Mist proved to be my favorite because I love the way the blues and greens blend together. Also (just in case you tend to get a bit intimidated by colors such as these) there’s a great tutorial on the back to show you which shades to apply where on your eye and how to blend them.

Jane Iredale PureGloss Lip Gloss

Jane Iredale PureGloss Lip Gloss

Jane Iredale PureGloss Lip Gloss ($24, janeiredale.com)

What It Is: An ultra glossy lip gloss, this stuff goes on smooth without feeling sticky or tacky due to its hydrating formula of organic oils that include Moringa Butter, Lotus Flower Wax and Orange Peel Wax. It also contains Vitamins C & E!

Why You Need It: This is perhaps one of the worlds most perfect lip glosses. (And that’s a compliment that shouldn’t be taken lightly considering the fact that I’m a lip gloss hoarder and have tried pretty much every one ever created.) Not only does this collection contain a great selection of shades (my favorite is Red Currant), but they smell amazing and leave long lasting pretty gloss so you don’t have to keep re-applying 8 million times per day.

Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes

Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes

Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes ($16 each, Clinique.com)

What It Is: The original Clinique Chubby Sticks were such a hit that the brand decided to come out with the same product for eyes! These super cute shadow sticks contain a silky formula that glide on easy. Each contains Vitamin E.

Why You Need It: If you’re not an eye shadow applying pro, then these sticks were made for you! Available twelve shades, each goes on super sheer. The best part is that each of these pencils are buildable so you can create a dark look as well as mix and match.

NARS Creamy Concealer

NARS Creamy Concealer

NARS Creamy Concealer ($28, narscosmetics.com)

What It Is: Just like it says on the packaging, this creamy concealer glides on smooth and even. However, what it actually delivers is something completely different (but in a good way). It contains light diffusing technology to blur imperfections and lines as well as even out your skin tone without looking gunky.

Why You Need It: Let’s face it: we all have those days in which our skin doesn’t look its stellar best. I like to call this stuff “Magic In A Stick” because it literally covers everything, including under eye darkness and redness. Believe it or not, it can even be worn alone (which is how I rock it) and since there’s a nice array of shades in the collection you’ll be sure to find the right hue for you.

Stila All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Periwinkle

Stila All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Periwinkle ($20, Sephora.com)

What It Is: Fresh off the runway of alice+olivia’s Spring 2013 presentation, this pretty blue is all you need to add a pop of color to your eyes.

Why You Need It: With its super fine tip, this eye liner is easy to apply and can be used to create a bold eye or smudge in with other shades for something a bit more subtle. It doesn’t fade or feather, so you can expect amazing stay-put color all day! Love.







House of Coach Coffret Set

House of Coach Coffret Set

Bonus spring pick from the Editor, Krista DeWeese:

"It’s not spring without a fresh, new fragrance… or four. I’m a fan of the Coach fragrance line, and was thrilled to see that the House of Coach Coffret Set ($48, Sephora.com) included all of my fave scents. The set includes mini versions of Coach Legacy Eau de Parfum, Coach Poppy Flower Eau de Parfum, Coach Poppy Eau de, and Coach Signature Eau de Toilette. Hoping that the Easter Bunny will hop on by the house to drop one of these bad boys into my Easter basket!"

A “buddy of Keith’s” was at the Papini home on Sundust Road on Saturday around noon — and told a Post reporter he was there to “walk the dogs.” He then took the smaller dog on a leash and said he “couldn’t answer any questions” and “I’m going to go walk her now.” He said he was there “just helping out.” A neighbor who has lived next to the Papini house, which is Keith’s childhood home, and has known him since he was 5

Tales of harassment against anyone who dares cross the religion—even IRS agents responsible for determining the organization’s tax exempt status—are commonplace. Because of the “religion’s” famous litigiousness, as well as the willingness of its strongmen to intimidate those who speak out, tales of abuse were slow to emerge for its first few decades.

    • Jayson Williams calls himself 'a coward' for his role in his limo driver's 2002 shooting, coverup

      It has nearly been 15 years since Costas “Gus” Christofi, a limousine driver working to shepherd former NBA All-Star Jayson Williams and his litany of friends around for a wild night out, was accidentally shot to death in Williams’ New Jersey estate. After a series of deadlocked juries and retrials Williams later pled guilty to aggravated assault in the rifle death in 2010, and the former Nets center was found guilty on four counts of attempting to cover up his role in Christofi’s death. Williams, free since 2012 and working with an alcohol problem prior to Christofi’s death, is clearly still working through the aftermath after all but abandoning the post-NBA career that seemed so expertly laid out for him.
