The Lipstick Pout Out. Kylie vs. Colour Pop

Best long lasting lipstick with no smears, smudges

 

Guest blogpost by Vaidehi Chaukulkar

Long lasting lipstick. For years companies have claimed to have the one that works, but I haven’t seen the results. Who has the time (or remembers) to constantly touch up lipstick, let alone have a pocket mirror to do hourly lipstick checks. Enter Kylie Jenner whose social media network is getting her close to being the youngest self made billionaire based on her cosmetics line. For long lasting lipsticks, she has her Posie K and Candie K lines. Another contender is the more popularly priced hot brand out of California, ColourPop. I decided to do a test of both, a review of long lasting lipstick. My criteria– no stains, smudges, and that it be long lasting.

Having seen too many people with the “orange” look, I talked to Fabiola Trujillo of Sobe Tan, one of the top tanning salons Miami and a celebrity favorite, for a list of everything you’d want to know about getting a great spray tan.

Luxury Barbershops – Part 1

Let’s be honest, ladies: when it comes to spa treatments, the majority of us book them for ourselves and not the men in our lives. (Cue Miami Spa Month, every woman’s favorite time of the year in South Florida!) Recognizing that trend, a slew of day spas, grooming and barber shops Miami have opened specifically with men in mind. Looking for somewhere to treat the gentlemen in your life to some A-list pampering? Checkout the first part of a two part series on barber shops Miami —some of them even have treatments for the ladies, too.

A Leading New Spa at 1 Hotel & Homes

1 Hotel & Homes South Beach is becoming one of the hot spots in town, almost always “buzzy”. They keep upping the ante, first snagging Tom Colicchio to oversee their restaurant, then getting a top New York boutique to move in, going after the cool crowd with the rooftop pool and restaurant Watr (see my writeup on Sunday Funday), and most recently, opening the first US outpost of luxe UK Bamford Haybarn Spa.
