  • Video: Newbies: Remington Perfect Curls – it’s THE tool for the hair styling challenged

    Wed, 12 October 2011 12:21PM

    It’s only taken 23 years and 352 days, Primps, but I’ve finally found a curling tong I can actually use – Remington‘s Perfect Curls styling tong. I know this makes me sound lame considering I am a Beauty Editor, and I know I wasn’t attempting to put waves through my locks at the age of two,… more

  • PRIMPED Pries: Do you use at-home fake tan on your face?

    Sun, 2 October 2011 12:38PM

    THE REASON FOR THIS PRYING POST: Because fake tanning season is now in full swing, Karen Gorgeous, one of our PRIMPED HQ residents, cranked out the old at-home fake tanner late last week. (Her surname isn’t really Gorgeous, but it starts with a G and she’s insanely beautiful so it’s rather fitting.) And when she… more

  • Newbies: A godsend for misbehaved, damaged hair

    Tue, 19 July 2011 10:09AM

    To all you blondies out there, how come you never mentioned just how misbehaved bleached locks are? Why did you not tell me they get knotty and tangled and simply refuse to stop twisting themselves around each other? I thought we were friends. (Just kidding. We definitely are. I’m just a wee bit grumpy because… more

  • Antipodes Heavenly Body Oil is ace in my books

    Fri, 15 April 2011 10:01AM

    This bad boy landed on my desk at the perfect time, Primps… Antipodes Heavenly Body Oil, $49 …because as much as I refuse to admit winter is actually poking its gloomy head around the corner, my skin is showing the tell tale signs that the weather is, in fact, cooling down. Yep, it’s positively squealing out for… more

  • Newbies: Benefit’s nude shiny glosses, as worn by Rachel Bilson. (Kind of.)

    Thu, 3 February 2011 4:21PM

    When I mentioned that Rachel Bilson was, in fact, wearing one of Benefit’s new ultra shines lip shine in the title of this post, I may have been stretching the truth a little. I mean, she’s probably not actually wearing one of their lippies, but from where I’m sitting, she totally could be. And that… more

  • Got stained nails and overgrown cuticles? You should try this.

    Wed, 8 December 2010 8:00PM

    Sometimes I think the beauty gods are looking over me, Primps, and today, I’m epically certain that they are. No, I’m not crazy; you just need to give me a moment to explain. Just a few minutes ago, I was peering down at my bare nails thinking they need a little love and attention. Despite the… more

  • The reason why your dry strands need to buddy up with a brush, STAT.

    Wed, 8 December 2010 8:42AM

    How often do you brush your hair, Primps? That may sound like a silly question, but I’m being totally serious. Me? I brush my hair in the morning whenever I blow-dry it straight, which is basically every second day. On my non-washing days, I prefer to leave it a little more textured and gritty so… more

  • Taylor Swift reminds me why lip stains are ridiculously awesome

    Tue, 30 November 2010 7:53AM

    Oh, Taylor Swift, I’m more than a little fond of you right now. You did, of course, blow me (and Zo and Yaz) away when you finally mixed things up a little and rocked up to the American Music Awards with a fringe and straight hair. You looked absolutely amazing. We’re not saying your usual… more
