We Tried It: Lancôme's Bridal Collection

Jul/24/2014 at 07:01 PM ET

We Tried It: Lancôme’s Le Grand Jour Bridal Color Collection

What it is: A wedding-focused makeup set featuring a variety of palettes for the “Classic & Charming Bride, Modern & Trendy Bride, and Dazzling & Glamorous Bride” (RE: Use these products and you can create any look you want)

Who tried it: Brittany Talarico, Associate Style Editor

Why I did it: I’ve been obsessing over all the celebrity weddings happening this summer (and getting tons of inspiration for my own!) so I figured it was about time to go for a makeup trial with a little Hollywood inspiration. Plus, as soon as I saw the new collection, it was just too pretty not to play with

Level of difficulty: 0. I could get my makeup done all. day. long. The best part? The products are easy to test out at home

We Tried It: Votre Vu's Silk Stockings

Jul/17/2014 at 04:16 PM ET

We Tried It: Votre Vu’s Silk Stockings Picture Perfect Leg Lustre

What it is: An oil/lotion meant to add a golden shine to legs, giving an airbrushed nude stocking look without the itch of hose

Who tried it: Catherine Kast, Style Writer

Why I did it: I needed something to fill the void of the dreaded post-self tanner fade. Also, it’s LWD season and some of us need all the tan we can get

Level of difficulty: If you have hands and a body, you can do this. Or I guess if you had a friend with hands, they could help you apply this pretty easily Read More

We Tried It: A Caviar Hair Treatment

Jul/10/2014 at 05:17 PM ET

We Tried It: A caviar (yes, caviar) hair treatment

What it is: The Kérastase Chronologie Caviar Ritual at the Red Door Spa, where “breakthrough caviar pearl technology” infused with antioxidants and vitamins is meant to strengthen and nourish the hair

Who tried it: Zoë Ruderman, Deputy Director, Style & Beauty

Why I did it: The treatment promises smoother, glossier hair (I don’t know any woman who wouldn’t want that) and keeps cuticles closed, plus it involves a scalp massage (again, who wouldn’t want that?)

Level of difficulty: The hardest thing was not falling asleep during the massage part of the treatment (clearly, this is an issue for me) Read More

We Tried It: A Formaldehyde-Free Keratin Treatment

What is it: Cezanne Perfect Finish Keratin Smoothing Treatment, which gives you smooth, frizz-free hair without formaldehyde or harmful chemicals, according to the makers

Who tried it:
Andrea Lavinthal, Style and Beauty Director

Why I did it: Because my only other option was to continue wearing my hair in a sad-looking bun for the rest of the summer

Level of difficulty: None for me, but 6 for my boyfriend who had to tolerate the smell of my hair for two weeks (“it’s like you stuck your head in a bag of Cheetos”), until it eventually faded

Jun/05/2014 at 05:56 PM ET

We get pretty excited when MAC announces a new celebrity collaboration. So this week we (we being, from left, style news editor Alex Apatoff, writer/reporter Jackie Fields and associate style editor Brittany Talarico) decided to test out four new star lipstick collaborations by the brand. From Lorde’s dramatic “Pure Heroine” to Kelly Osbourne’s polarizing light purple shade and Rihanna‘s very-glam red, we decked our pouts (and polled the office!) to find out our faves. Check out the photos, below, along with our reviews and our ratings, from 1 (would never wear again) to 10 (we plan to wear this every day).
