better together

For two years, we were inseparable. Maybelline New York’s ColorTattoo Eyeshadow in Bad to the Bronze and I, that is. The bitty pot, about the size of a half dollar, was filled with a tacky shadow the exact color of dry cocoa powder. It was the only cream shadow I’d ever found that could withstand my lids’ oiliness, so I used it as a base under the glittery shadows I loved—with nary a crease. It looked great on its own, too, lending my lids a subtle depth. Then the unthinkable happened: Maybelline discontinued the shade. Not long after that, I scraped the last smear out of the pot I’d used every day. I had worn it more consistently than deodorant—or a bra. I tried (unsuccessfully) to find substitutes and eventually…

heat wave

When you think of summer fragrances, you might think of a wimpy floral that wears off in minutes. Or maybe citrus, citrus, and more citrus. That is, refreshingly, not the case this year. Perfumers are reimagining earthy, spicy notes like frankincense, tea leaves, and bark in perfumes that are delicate, but just a little dirty—a perfect balance between demure and sexy. “You put these types of notes on your skin, and they last a long time,” says perfumer Christine Nagel, who drew inspiration from a magnolia tree’s blooms and shallow, soil-covered roots for Hermès Un Jardin sur La Lagune. “I think the movement toward sustainable and organic ingredients is also shaping attitudes for perfumes that smell natural, honest, and authentic,” she says. You’ll find this raw quality permeating elegant florals…

exclusive: so rich

Some three hours and 25 minutes away from Paris is a town called Vichy. Its claim to fame: Napoleon III would journey there to soak in and sip its mineral-rich waters, bubbling up from several steaming founts. Then (and now), French doctors prescribed these waters to patients with physical ailments, and some even stirred it into topical creams. The water is still available in jars, but now it’s souped up in the form of Vichy’s new LiftActiv Peptide-C cream. Like most creams, its main ingredient is water, only this one is full of perks: antioxidant manganese, hydrating sodium and potassium, and anti-acneic sulphur. Plus, it has brightening, texture-improving vitamin C (a dermatologist’s darling if ever there were one) and collagen-stimulating peptides for smoother skin in every sense. Plus plus, this…

we tried it: smooth operators

1. MAAPILIM SAFETY RAZOR “I’ve been using multiblade razors for years, so I was convinced this single blade wouldn’t cut it. But the weighted handle gave me a nice, controlled grip and navigated tricky spots with ease. Best of all: It left my legs so smooth, I ended up skipping my usual second pass.” —Kathleen Suico, assistant editor 2. GILLETTE VENUS EXTRA SMOOTH SENSITIVE RAZOR “I’ve lived in a stubble bubble for the majority of my adult life: No razor—no matter how ‘sensitive’ it claims to be—has ever given me a smooth, non-rashy finish. Until this five-bladed beaut. Just two swipes left my pits silky and bump-free for three straight days.” —Theresa O’Rourke, contributing editor 3. JOY RAZOR “As someone with fairly sensitive skin and obnoxiously thick hair, finding a razor I like is a…

6 new ways to wear color

Seeing RED There was a ton of red lipstick on the runways, but one crimson shade was as cool as it was sexy: rich brick red. Yep, it’s back from the ’90s—but there are two tricks for making it feel modern. Blur the edges by pressing a clean fingertip along your lip line “so it’s not too sharp or perfect,” says makeup artist Emi Kaneko. And keep the rest of your face clean—a little mascara, defined brows, done. ORANGE crush Give your smoky eyes a tropical makeover by using warm orange shadow, diffused from lash lines to brows. “Choose a slightly muted, matte tangerine or coral so it’s a little watercolor-y,” says makeup artist Fiona Stiles. She likes staying in the same color family on the rest of the face—it gives you the…

“I like makeup that I can apply without brushes because I don’t own many and I like to stay minimal. I curl my lashes, use Koh Gen Do mascara [8]—the tubing formula gives me extra length—and apply orangey-red Bobbi Brown lipstick [5]. Makeup should make you feel like a brighter version of yourself.” “I use La Prairie White Caviar Illuminating Pearl Infusion [7] in the morning, which I hesitate to include because it’s so expensive, but it’s an extravagance that I treat my skin to. At night I use Shani Darden face wash [9], and I keep Embryolisse moisturizer [4] from the pharmacy in my bag when I travel.” “The wrinkle-smoothing Korean Hanacure mask [3] is so freaky—it makes your face look shrink-wrapped while it’s on. I was recommending it to a…
