Tubular Products For My Lips: Guest Blogger

A self-proclaimed beauty addict and over-the-top girly girl, Lara Ramos has been dedicated to living a pretty lifestyle since birth. Her blog, The Glossarie, highlights ground-breaking beauty products and little laid-back luxuries. This week, in Lara’s second appearance as a guest blogger, she shares the newest items that have caught her eye and her personal must-haves.

So many of the most beloved lip balms and glosses come in a convenient tube. (I am not one for sticking my finger in a pot, and carrying around a lip brush can be a real pain.) There’s something about the slick application of color from a tube that leaves an almost glaze-like finish on lips, with extra-pigmented shine.

Here are my of-the-moment favorites for totally tubular lips. From top to bottom:

What’s On My Desk, From Lara of The Glossarie: Guest Blogger

A self-proclaimed beauty addict and over-the-top girly girl, Lara Ramos has been dedicated to living a pretty lifestyle since birth. Her blog, The Glossarie, highlights ground-breaking beauty products and little laid-back luxuries. This week, in Lara’s second appearance as a guest blogger, she shares the newest items that have caught her eye and her personal must-haves.

Take a peek at my desk and you’re sure to see a bundle of beauty products that changes from one day to the next. This week, it’s littered with four products awaiting their turn for the top spot on The Glossarie.

1. Murad Gentle Acne Treatment Gel is currently serving as my night cream. It’s been perfect to help heal my summer breakouts quickly, without wreaking havoc on the healthy skin on my face.

2. Basq Cucumber Tea Soothing Eye Gel is a saving grace for tired, sun-soaked skin. It’s cooling and instantly fights swelling and puffiness. Tip: Store it in the fridge for an energizing boost.

Skincare Products We Can’t Live Without: Guest Blogger

The dynamic duo behind Beauty Bender, Kathryn Romeyn and Alexis Johnson, have an impeccable eye for deciphering up-and-coming cosmetics trends and finding experts to give the lowdown on how to wear them. (It must be the decade’s worth of magazine curating experience they have between them.) We can’t get enough of their gorgeous site, and happily, for a whole week they’re sharing all of their beauty insight on our blog!


If there’s one thing we both agree we’d never want to be deprived of, it would be our Clarisonic brushes. Life-changing. Luckily, as beauty editors, we don’t have to whittle it down to just one routine-altering device or product. Here, we pay tribute to a select few truly genius skincare formulas we just wouldn’t look the same without.

Le Mieux Vita-C Serum
I love this incredibly potent serum, which is super hydrating and brightening thanks to maximum-strength vitamin C. My obsession stems from the fact that unlike most products, the main ingredient isn’t water, it’s this is hyaluronic acid, which quenches and plumps my always-thirsty skin. –KR

5 Questions For…Eve’s Apple’s Michele Percy and Sari Turner

Up-and-coming online boutique Eve’s Apple has one of our favorite selections of fashion apparel and accessories—and we know how to shop. Started by Michele Percy and Sari Turner, the well edited e-boutique has a fantastic mix of cult-favorite brands, like Charlotte Ronson and Elizabeth & James, as well as lesser known gems, such as Adam Lippes and Mother. Lucky for us, we were able to snag a few minutes with the busy trendsetters to talk favorite designers, must-have products, and fashion (and beauty!) rules to live by.

Who’s your favorite designer? 

M: I love Zac Posen. I am so excited because we just picked up Z Spoke by Zac Posen line for resort and it looks amazing. He has something for everyone. In fact, it’s a line that both my mother and I would wear.

S: At the moment, I love Jenni Kayne. She juxtaposes uncomplicated design with exquisite fabrics and the result is timeless pieces. Also, for almost every collection, she has a couple of leather pieces that I just cannot live without. When all else fails, I choose leather.

What’s your one can’t-live-without beauty product?

M: Next to clothes and shoes, makeup is my favorite thing. I am such a girly girl. And I really can’t narrow down my favorites to just one, I have three products I can’t live without: Bobbi Brown’s Pot Rouge for lips and cheeks in pale pink, Bobbi Brown’s No Smudge Mascara in jet black, and Colorescience Bronzer in It’s Only Natural.

S: Dermatal. It has been all over TV via its infomercial (first time I ever bought something off of an infomercial) and it really does reduce the puffiness and dark circles under my eyes.
