I love me some Marc Jacobs. Any of it and all of it. I lust after his bags every time I go into a store that carries them, and I have a pair of his shoes that were way out of my budget, but far too cute not to buy. So you can imagine my excitement when word broke awhile ago that Marc was coming out with his own cosmetic line that would be carried at Sephora. I think I squealed at a decibel level that only dogs can normally hear. And now finally, FINALLY, it has arrived in stores. And it's glorious!
One Reddit user is giving the internet an all-too-real reminder of how important it is to regularly wash your makeup brushes.
Even us beauty addicts and product junkies (and yes, I wouldn’t be a beauty writer if I wasn’t both) have to draw the line somewhere. My obsession is brushes.

There’s nothing more satisfying than saying buh-bye winter and hello spring with the annual clean. While we may focus on the obvious places in the home, we often neglect the most important (and easiest) place to clean: our makeup brushes.

The date-night makeup products I can’t get enough of…for this week, anyway.
It may only be a few weeks into the new year, but that doesn't mean we aren't already deep into makeup for spring 2014 releases. Check out these three new products.
Put down the blacks and browns. Mermaid eye makeup is all about color.
It's ironic that we spend billions of dollars a year on beauty products to make ourselves look better, yet the same products--if not used, stored, and replaced properly--can also undo all the work by causing conditions like pinkeye or acne. That's why, when it comes to the business of beauty, it's always best to err on the side of caution.
Every good collection needs proper storage and a method for the madness. Maybe you're like me and you collect makeup. Even if your collection isn't massive, organizing your products will make your daily routine faster and stress free! I have some ideas for ways to organize palettes, brushes, and everything in between!
A brand new cosmetics company is introducing wand-shaped makeup brushes after our favorite boy wizard, and they're everything we've ever imagined.
It seems every beauty label says its product is better because it's paraben-free. But what exactly are parabens, and should you be making the switch to paraben-free makeup? Here's what you need to know.
