Four Products To Tame Frizz Now


Purchased by me. Contains affiliate links. 

Who isn't sick of hair that inflates when the weather isn't perfect? So many products claim to fight frizz, but do they really?

Check out these four products that bring more that slick advertising to the frizz fight.


Living Proof Straight Spray: Ever wish there was just a chemical that would transform your hair, remove the frizz and make it manageable? OFPMA is that chemical and is the signature ingredient in most of Living Proof's line. The Straight Spray is heat activated so when blow drying (or curling, I imagine it) helps smooth your style, repel dirt and protect your hair from that heat styling. I'm gobsmacked by how well this works. Sephora, $29

ApHogee Keratin and Green Tea Reconstructurizer Spray: This spray is also applied to wet hair. It helps to strengthen hair, fill in damaged areas and reduce frizz. It works best when used in conjunction with a heat tool, but be careful not to overdo the heat styling on damaged hair. Sally's Beauty, $8

Davines Oi: This nourishing oil fixes almost everything that ails the hair. Roucou oil helps fight frizz, detangles, adds superior shine and makes hair feel so soft (and it smells great, too!). Birchbox, $41

Living Proof Satin Hair Serum: This doesn't contain silicones or oils so it won't wear your hair down. It utilizes their Sera-Smooth Complex, which keeps hair under control and is never heavy. Satin Hair Serum adds shine and controls frizz, without flattening out your style. Sephora. $29

Cover FX Custom Cover Drops


Purchased by me. Contains affiliate links. 


Ever been unhappy with the shade of your foundation, wished you could blend your own or wanted to play makeup scientist? Cover FX has figured out how to isolate pigment in a way that allows it to be evenly blended with almost any base. Two Custom Cover Drops will give you sheer to medium  coverage and four drops will give you complete coverage. It really works with almost anything (I say almost only because I haven't tried it with everything in my arsenal).

If you mix it with Paula's Choice Resist Oil, you'll get a dewy glow that lasts the day and looks airbrushed.

If you mix it with Too Faced's Hangover Rx Primer, you'll get a very natural, semi-matte look that won't budge (you'll want to add a translucent powder to stop the sticky feeling).

Add two drops to an aloe vera-based face gel (like this one from NuSkin) for a truly no makeup, perfected skin look.

Add a drop of one shade darker to your existing foundation routine to create the perfect match for your summer bronzed skin.

Add a drop or two to your favorite SPF, moisturizer or serum and create your own foundation. Even adding a drop to your body moisturizer is a great way to give your legs fantastic coverage for special nights out.

At last, you're the one in control of your coverage and color! If you need full coverage or just a tiny bit, Cover Drops delivers. You decide how you look. Radiant, matte or somewhere in between is all up to you. Cover FX released Cover Drops in all of their foundation colors, TWENTY-FOUR in all. This collection is the first of its kind and changes how you think of foundation. No collection is complete without it. Grab your own Cover Drops for $44.

Makeup Wars: Favorite Mascara (For Short Lashes)


Purchased by me. Contains affiliate links.




I hate mascara right now. HATE IT.

Go ahead. Try to find the lashes. They are THAT short.

Here's why. I haven't been using Latisse or anything similar lately and I should be. My lashes are so short that when they curl up, the curl barely goes past the rim of my eye. The only lashes I've seen on another person that were shorter were my mom's after they trimmed hers for eye surgery.

While I haven't given up on them, per se, I'm out of will to try to make them better with mascara. Primers help, but not as much as Latisse (which is what I'll eventually end up doing again. You can get a script from the Target clinic, you know!).


Out of my current collection of mascaras, the only one working for me right now is Perricone's No Mascara Mascara. When I used this religiously, it made my lashes a little more full and a touch longer. I really like the anti-brush, which makes the most of the lashes I do have.



Since I'm unhappy with everything right now, I asked Hannah, my favorite Sephora Color Consultant, what she thought about mascaras for wimpy lashes. Hannah suggested I try Stretchex by Touch In Sol to add length to lashes. And that it does! It's also really easy to overdo, and enter clump city, so be careful not to go for broke with this mascara, as you won't win. Two coats delivers lovely, longer, but very thin lashes. More than that and you'll hate it.

So at the end of the day, I'm still stuck in Miserable Lashes Land. Help! (And no, I don't want to try Younique.) What works for you?

Lipstick League: What Is Your Favorite Foot Product?


Question of the Week: Do you use foot lotion or cream? If so, what are current favorite products? I don't use a lotion or cream on my feet. I probably should, but I don't. (I skip the lotion on my body too. I don't like to apply it. I'm weird.) What I do use on my feel is the genius little pumice, My Solemate. You need one in your life. Trust me.
