Beauty to Try: Love Hate Relationships


As part of the research behind Paul Mitchell's new line Curls the discovered one common thread; that people with curls often have a love/hate relationship with their hair. For me, that feeling happens when I want more curls. Until college I had the most stick-straight hair you could imagine, then all of a sudden I had a healthy wave. Now I want as much curl as I can get out of my hair and on a straight day (what most girls crave) I get a little anxious that I've lost my curl.

In the spirit of embracing features that cause the same love/hate reaction I've included a few other products in that same vein. The latest shade of OCC's Lip Tar is a collaboration with Nylon Magazine and perfect for highlighting for my small-ish mouth. My fair skin requires that I be a slave to SPF, but Kiehl's new sunscreen formula is perfect for preserving my freckles. Make Up For Ever's eyebrow pencil is perfect for adding definition to my bold, but unruly brows.

I'm a huge fan of the Kiehl's spf for face:

but have to admit I've never tried the one for body. Also super curious about the lip tar, have you tried it before?
