We Volunteer! Covergirl Launching a Hunger Games Capitol Collection


For those of us not lucky enough to be born into the high status life of Panem’s Capitol, soon we can get the look of The Hunger Games's elite thanks to Covergirl's upcoming Capitol Collection, which is slated to hit stores this fall. But like the games themselves, the details regarding the collection are hush hush. 

If the name and preview images (like the one above) are any indication, we’ll probably see products inspired by the outrageous and high couture looks often worn by the Capitol’s residents. The only question is how extreme they’ll go—bright purple lipstick? Large, delicate false paper lashes? Neon green eyeshadow? 

What products do you hope to see from The Hunger Games universe?

Exclusive: This New German Polish Makes Home Manis Easier


I’m normally a proud lefty, but whenever I paint my nails, I wish I were among the few lucky ones who were born ambidextrous. This might seem like a strange wish, but I’ve never figured out how stop my non-dominant hand from shaking when I pick up the little brush that comes with every bottle of nail polish. (I know there are some much bigger problems in the world, but it’s still vexing!)

That’s why I’m seriously loving the brand new alessandro polishes that just landed in our shop. Originally from Germany, this brand is launching in the US as a Birchbox exclusive—as of yesterday!—and not a moment too soon. These luxe polishes all come with a specially designed brush that’s wider and flatter than the norm. I tested out the Dusty Purple shade today, and the brush definitely made it easier for me to paint my nails evenly. The formula also feels thinner than other polishes I’ve encountered in the past, which helped give me more control and prevented my nails from ending up as a goopy mess.

Tatcha Launches a Skincare Line (Finally!)

Fun fact: Tatcha blotting papers were in the very first Birchbox, way back in September 2010. Katia, Hayley, and I were cray-cray for the handmade sheets, which are embedded with real gold leaf. We even shot a video of ourselves running around New York demonstrating the many uses of blotting papers (why this never went viral, we’ll never know). Since then, we’ve been waiting for the brand to launch a full-fledged skincare line. And it’s finally here.

Stila and Cut25’s Exclusive Palettes

At Cut25's opening party for their first brick-and-mortar location in New York a few weeks ago, stila debuted a brand-new, exclusive set of palettes. The sets, which include eye shadows ($42), eye liners ($40), and lip glazes ($32), are available at the Soho shop. I personally can’t wait to get my hands on some—obsessed with the illustrations of stila girls sporting Cut25 Spring ‘12 designs on all the packaging!


Even if you don’t live in NYC you can still get your stila fix with our favorite of their products!

Is Beauty.Com Angling to Be the New Amazon?

OK, they don’t have $1.99 album deals or groceries yet, but is adding a whole new element to its arsenal: Accessories. I had a chance to check out the new collection this morning and it’s a nice mix of necessities like Spanx and Cosabella (what, shapewear isn’t a necessity for you?) as well as well-priced jewelry, hair doodads, sunglasses, and more. The appeal is that if you’re already planning on stocking up on something from (or for that matter), it’s that much easier to throw in a pair of Ray Bans or a Dogeared wish necklace. My picks? Jane Tran’s adorable bobby pins, Commando’s cute and comfy undies, and Foot Petals, a must for sky high heels. 


Speaking of accessories, have you snagged a Birchbox Travel Pouch yet? They’re going fast!
