Sara Glassman, Lifestyle Writer


Meet Sara Glassman, a lifestyle writer and girl-about-town who seems to know everyone and everything that’s happening in the world of retail, food, and fashion. You can always get the scoop from her at  Pop Fizz Daily, but we’ve got her beauty picks right here!


(clockwise) Chanel Nail Colour in Black Satin and Shanghai Red ($23) – While I don’t like to go bold on my face, I do love a statement nail color. Chanel’s go on super smoothly and dry quicker than most polishes. Aveda Be Curly Curl Control ($18) – I’ve tried a million different curly hair products, but I like to twist a dollop of this into my wet hair and let it air dry. Yes, that means I always run around with damp hair. But blow-drying creates way too much frizz. Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15 ($23) – Once you try this lip balm, you can’t live without it. The subtle color glides on smoothly and doesn’t clump in the corners of my mouth. Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat ($40) – From the moment a makeup artist used this on me in 2001, I’ve been hooked. It’s a light-deflecting formula that provides coverage, but doesn’t go on thick. I usually use this under my eyes and often don’t use any other makeup, though I sometimes use a touch of Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer ($32). Patricia Wexler M.D. Dermatology Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30 ($40) – My skin loves this cream and I adore the SPF 30. I’ve tried her other formulas, but this one works the best for me. Tarte Cheek Stain in Tickled ($30) – This stain gives you rosy cheeks with a very natural dewy sheen, and it has a nice, light fragrance. Origins Full Story Mascara ($14) – Eye shadow really makes me look like a clown, but I love to go crazy on the eyelashes. This formula pumps up my lashes and doesn’t run.
