So you may have heard a little here and there about the Snowpocalypse That Wasn't in NYC earlier this week. I'm not complaining, believe me. But it did make for a pretty weird week, one in which team xoVain worked from home more than we made it into the office. (Still not complaining.)

It also gave me time to sort through some new products I've been meaning to try. And what better time to test beauty products than when you're stuck in your apartment binge-watching Empire! I tell you, sometimes it even surprises me that this is a real job.

Here's what I'm into right now, from left:

If you want to know more about any of these, let me know in the comments!


  • Did you get hammered with snow where you are?
  • Anyone else watching Empire? (Can we please talk about Cookie's outfits?)
  • What is your current favorite new product?

Tell it to me straight in this, your brand-new Open Thread!

PS: Have you been enjoying Skin Care Week? It's rolling on through the weekend. Still plenty of time to enter our Biore giveaway, too. But don't sleep! It ends on 2/2/15 at noon EST.
