My cat-eye weapon: Stila’s Say All Day Liquid Eyeliner.
I’m fiercely loyal to the items in my makeup bag (which, in case you’re wondering, is this Rebecca Minkoff monogram pouch). Try as I might to love Diorshow and Maybelline’s Great Lash, I always come back to L’Oreal’s Voluminous mascara (the one with the curved wand). And with the exception of a few dalliances with MAC, Benefit and Laura Mercier foundations, I’ve never strayed too far from Clinique’s Superbalanced Makeup. But the ultimate weapon in my beauty arsenal is my eyeliner: Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner. Seriously, guys, you need to try this.
I know, waterproof liquid eyeliner sounds scary. But it’s not! Keep reading.

After the huge success of Tory Burch’s signature pinky-nude lip that debuted earlier this year, the Valley Forge-born designer has taken the plunge into a full lip color collection. The line—which debuts will consist of 12 shades (like this tomato color!), each formulated to deliver a sheer yet vibrant wash with a weightless finish. They’re also subtly scented with the Tory Burch fragrance (think: cassis, grapefruit, and mandarin). Plus, can we talk about the case? The gold and orange fretwork is enough to warrant a permanent spot on our vanities. The lipsticks cost $32 each; starting in March, you’ll be able to get your hands on the collection at select Nordstrom stores, at the Tory Burch boutique at KOP, and Toryburch.com. Pucker up.

Facial hair isn’t the only thing that have Philly men turning to the cosmetics aisle. There’s a new school of image-conscious guys out there who go bespoke, have serious opinions on beard oil, and aren’t afraid to wear a little bit of mascara. We saw it coming: Last fall, fashion and beauty industry moguls like Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford dropped male grooming lines that featured everything from lip balm to bronzer and concealer. (Yes, bronzer.) For ages, women have had the upper hand when it comes to fixing their “flaws” with makeup. Love it or hate it, we’ve at least got the option to wear a bit of concealer when we have a zit, or a smidge of blush when we’re looking pallid. Guys, though, they’re on their own. Well, until now.
Think your man doesn’t wear concealer? Think again.
Pure brilliance, right?

I may be be fiercely loyal to my Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker (I swear by that tint of color), but when it’s 20 degrees out and there’s a crazy wind chill, my reptilian pout demands extra attention. Since this was kind of a beauty emergency (read: cracked and flaky), I decided to see what lip balms I could score locally–and, boy, the options did not disappoint. From balms boasting locally sourced ingredients to ultra-luxe cult favorites, I can safely say I plan to keep one at home, another in my purse, and one on my desk. Liberal usage is key, people (or at least, that’s what I’ll be telling myself).
See which balms made the cut and where to snag ‘em.
- Your shoes should match. Your earrings, though? Not anymore. Style tip of the day: Swap out one of your studs for a mismatched one (say, a pearl on one ear and a gold stud on the other) for instant style cred. [Fashionista]
