7 Beauty Pros on How They’d Spend $100 at Sephora

Walking into Sephora can feel exhilarating—and, also, completely overwhelming. With rows and rows of beauty products, it’s easy to feel a little lost. How to pick one mascara out of the 17 volumizing versions out there? Should you spring for a texturizer or dry shampoo? Decisions, decisions. It’s even trickier if you don’t necessarily need to restock your foundation or want to test the serum your BFF has been raving about; sometimes you just want to try something new (retail therapy is real). To give you some shopping inspiration, we asked top hair, makeup, and nail pros—you know, the people who live and breathe beauty products day-in and day-out—to share what they’d spend a spare $100 on at Sephora.

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas Are Live-Instagramming Their Honeymoon

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are currently on their honeymoon, and I have FOMO. Yes, that’s right: I have FOMO from a couple’s literal honeymoon, a party that’s specifically designated for just two people. But I have good reasons! For one, Chopra and Jonas’ post-wedding getaway is happening somewhere in the Caribbean. (Meanwhile, I’m in New York City, dreading leaving my apartment because it’s so freezing.) Also, the honeymoon came as a complete surprise to Chopra, according to E! Online.

“[Jonas] surprised Priyanka with the celebration,” a source tells the outlet. “She had no idea it was going to be the Caribbean and Nick is planning everything for the trip, it’s all a complete surprise to Priyanka. She knew it was a honeymoon trip but didn’t find out where they were going until they landed.” So…a surprise trip to the Caribbean with hot Nick Jonas in the middle of January? Yup, that sounds exactly like the kind of trip I want to be on—even if it is a couple’s honeymoon.

Jonas is posting live updates from the trip to his Instagram, which is only intensifying my FOMO. Below, check out a photo of himself and Chopra looking gorgeous and rich at some villa. I’d fit right in!

On Instagram Stories, Jonas shared a video of himself staring lovingly at Chopra as she catches some air on a beach swing. This is all just so picturesque!

Jonas and Chopra tied the knot over a multi-day ceremony in Jodhpur, India. They pushed back their honeymoon for work obligations, but these posts prove it was worth the wait. No worries, you two: I’ll just be over here…sad and very cold.

You Season 2: Here’s Everything We Know So Far

Winter’s unexpected TV hit is You, which premiered in September on Lifetime to lackluster ratings but has found a great resurgence on Netflix. The soapy melodrama centers on a bookstore clerk, Joe (Penn Badgley), who develops an obsession with a woman named Beck (Elizabeth Lail). His fascination with Beck drives him to do some crazy things, like stalk her every move and, oh yeah, murder people in her inner circle. It’s a wild story, and thankfully Netflix is making a second season. (Lifetime passed You over to the streaming platform at the end of 2018.)

Here’s everything we know about the next chapter of You—and be warned: Major spoilers for season one ahead.

1. The first part of the season takes place in Los Angeles. This is in line with what happens in the second novel of the series that You is based on, Hidden Bodies. “Joe Goldberg comes to L.A. and he is a die-hard New Yorker so I can’t say that he comes to L.A and he instantly falls in love with the place,” You‘s show-runner Sera Gamble tells The Hollywood Reporter. “At least at first glance, this is not Joe’s kind of town, which is delightful.”

2. All of Joe’s loose ends from season one will come back to haunt him. Remember, he framed Dr. Nicky (played by John Stamos) for Beck’s murder, and Peach Salinger’s (Shay Mitchell) family is investigating her mysterious death. All of this, Gamble tells THR, could “come back to him at anytime.” “He is very worried about the fact that Peach Salinger’s family has hired people to investigate her alleged suicide, and there is evidence potentially still at her house from season one,” Gamble says. “If you look at every act of violence that he does in season one, that is potentially something that could come back and bite him.”

3. But it’s unclear if Stamos will be reprising his role in the second season. “We have been talking a lot about the character and we’re excited to keep telling that story,” Gamble tells THR.

4. Joe will continue to be the “woke” guy who doesn’t really get it. “He thinks he really understands women,” Gamble also said to The Hollywood Reporter. “He thinks that he is such an incredible ally. I think that can be one of the most dangerous positions of all when you’re entitled and when you’re not entirely self-aware about why you do the things that you do…So, I don’t know, we’re having a lot of fun being subversive with the story, and that will continue.”

5. When is season two premiering? The show’s Instagram page says the next chapter is “coming soon,” so expect to see it at least before the year is over.

6. Penn Badgley is reprising his role of Joe. He’s back—and probably still very, very creepy.

7. We will delve more into Joe’s past. We learned a little bit about his childhood in season one. Mr. Mooney (Mark Blum), Joe’s first boss, may have played a big hand in his, erm, perception of the world. This will also be expanded in the episodes to come. “Joe was taken in by a guy who had a certain type of life philosophy that really did rub off on Joe,” Gamble tells THR. “Joe was already a teenager by the time he even met Mr. Mooney. There’s a lot more to explore about Joe from earlier in his life. Those are the things we’re starting to get into for season two.”

The Big Bang Theory Season 12, Episode 12 Recap: Penny and Leonard Have a Big Decision

For the first time ever, The Big Bang Theory has left me speechless about a scene and it has nothing to do with science, physics, engineering, or Super Asymmetry. Nope, it’s all about relationship—Penny and Leonard’s, specifically. Next week’s episode better reveal that this one—”The Propagation Proposition”—was all a bad dream; otherwise, I’m not going to make it through the rest of the season.

But before we get to that, let’s rewind a bit: This episode is a continuation from last week, when Raj and Anu fought over a doorbell camera and an ex-boyfriend. OK, so their issues might have been bigger than that, but the whole thing escalated beyond reason. In tonight’s episode, Raj tries to win Anu back by showing up at her door Love, Actually style with sweet notecards. To make a long story short, the two decide to get back together and start over without rushing things.

There’s only one problem: Raj never bothers to ask about Anu’s ex-boyfriend, the guy who instigated this whole misunderstanding in the first place. And Anu never brings him up! So we still don’t know who the hell this guy is, whether she still has feelings for him, or why he’s in her life. I think that’s pretty important to talk about.

Anyway, moving on to more important matters… Penny runs into her ex-boyfriend, Zack, and he tells her he sold his company, made a bunch of money, and got married. Zack’s not the brightest, but his life choices sound pretty smart. He tells Penny she and Leonard should come over for dinner on his new boat. When Leonard hears about this, he’s understandably not too excited to dine with Zack and his wife. He’s right. There’s no reason to be excited to dine with your wife’s ex-boyfriend and his new wife on their expensive boat.

But this being a sitcom, it’s never that easy. Leonard and Penny go to Zack’s boat for dinner and trade eye rolls all night over how two these two have managed to live the high life despite being, well, dumb. Before they can figure that out, though, Zack drops a bombshell: he and his wife want a baby, but they can’t on their own…or at least Zack can’t. Since Leonard is the smartest person they know, they want Leonard to donate his sperm for their baby. (What? I can’t, you guys. I just can’t.)

Leonard is flattered, but Penny is dumbfounded. Then Leonard says he doesn’t know what to say. “Really? You don’t know what to say?” Penny responds. “I think we should talk about this,” Leonard says. Uh, Leonard, the answer is “no.”

But of course, Leonard doesn’t say that. Instead, they apparently tell Zack and his wife that they’ll think about it, because in the next scene, Penny tells Amy and Bernadette about the absurdity of the situation. “Leonard just stood there with a big dumb smile on his face like he was watching a puppy and a monkey make friends,” she says. “We got into a huge fight about it. He said if I don’t want to have his baby then why shouldn’t someone else be able to?”

So now Penny is being punished for not wanting to have kids? And does Leonard not understand that donating his sperm doesn’t really make him a dad? Zack would be the father of this baby.

While Penny is talking to Amy and Bernadette, Leonard tells Sheldon he doesn’t see why Penny is so against donating his sperm to Zack and his wife. Sheldon, the voice of reason, tells Leonard he hasn’t considered the emotional toll of knowing there’s a child out there who’s biologically his but not actually his to raise. “Wow, that’s really insightful,” Leonard says. Seriously, Leonard? You didn’t realize that for yourself?

Later, Leonard tells Penny that if she doesn’t want him to do it, he won’t. Penny seems relieved with his decision, but then she excuses herself and returns with a small plastic cup indicating that she’s now OK with him donating his sperm. Leonard asks if this means what he thinks it does, and Penny says, “When I told you I didn’t want to have kids, you didn’t have a say in that, so maybe I don’t need to have a say in this.” Leonard thanks her, and Penny says Zack and his wife couldn’t have picked a better person.

I’m disappointed: How is this Penny’s fault? Just because she doesn’t want kids doesn’t mean the trade-off is Leonard donating his sperm for a child he won’t have a say in raising. And for her ex of all people? This isn’t going to end well—and that’s one series finale I don’t want to see.

Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, and Cazzie David Are Hanging Out and I Want an Invite

Well, well, well. It seems Taylor Swift‘s famed squad has just gained a new member: Cazzie David, writer, daughter of Larry David, ex of Pete Davidson, and all-around cool girl. The news of David’s addition to the friend group comes from Swift herself, via an Instagram she posted today, January 10, of her, David, and squad alum Selena Gomez smiling and wearing excellent lip colors. It’s captioned, “20wineteen,” which is a very 2019 mood.

Take a look at the photo for yourself, below:

Just putting it out into the universe: I’d like an invite to the next meet-up, please. I can’t relate to these three over the stress of dealing with a public breakup or how to slip past paparazzi in a suitcase, but I do like wine and puns! That must count for something, right? Right?!

Regardless, I am glad Swift is back to throwing her infamous squad parties. The singer’s social media output slowed down over the past year—just images from the Reputation tour and not much else—but now she’s returned to giving the people what they want: photos of her hanging out with her famous friends. Most recently, she shared some snaps from her New Year’s Eve party, which was attended by the likes of Blake Lively and Gigi Hadid. Everyone dressed up as their “childhood heroes”; for Swift, that meant a full Little Mermaid costume so elaborate it sparked rumors that her next album will be about mermaids.

We’ll have to wait and see whether that theory is true or not—so until then, we’ll be here waiting for more squad pics please and thanks.

What Khloé Kardashian Just Said About Losing Weight Is Upsetting People

Khloé Kardashian has caught some heat in the past for her comments about weight. Last March, she published an article to her app about how to look “thin AF” in photos, which didn’t go over well with people. Then, a few months later, both she and Kendall Jenner faced backlash for raving about how “skinny” their sister Kim looked at an event. “She’s anorexic here,” Khloé said, referring to Kim’s waist, completely meaning it as a compliment. Oof.

Now social media users are taking Khloé to task for a recent post about losing weight. Earlier this week, the reality star wrote on Instagram Stories two things she thinks girls want: to “lose weight” and to “eat.”

Naturally, it didn’t take long for the criticism to pour in. The Good Place actress Jameela Jamil, who has spoken out repeatedly about the need to stop talking about weight in the media, took a screen shot of Khloé’s post and tweeted late Wednesday night, “This makes me sad.”

She later clarified that she wasn’t critiquing Khloé specifically but “the fat-shaming media” in general.

But Jamil wasn’t the only one upset by the problematic post. On Twitter, fed up users called out Khloé for sending a potentially toxic message to her millions of followers. “It’s actually really sad that so many girls follow Khloe and they’re all being told that it is normal for all of them to want to lose weight, rather than it being normal for all of them to be happy with their bodies,” one person wrote on Twitter. “Eating and losing weight are not mutually exclusive. Thinking they are is eating disorder behavior,” tweeted another.

Check out some more reactions to Khloé’s comment, below. (A few come to her defense.)

Khloé hasn’t responded to the backlash yet, but we’ll update this post when and if she does.

If you or someone you know is struggling with disordered eating, please call the NEDA helpline at 800-931-2237 or visit its website.

15 Travel Essentials That Make Traveling a Whole Lot Easier

A great trip—whether you’re escaping for a weekend or jetting off on a long-haul flight to an unexplored destination—is arguably one of the best parts of the year. However, it can also be a bit of a hassle: We’ve all dealt with suitcases that break on day three of a week-long trip, freezing cold flights in recycled air, or hotels where the walls are just that much too thin to get a good night’s sleep. As a travel writer living in Berlin, I’m usually off somewhere—and because of such, I’m usually the friend everyone comes to for reccs on how to make traveling easier. My secret? I couldn’t live between flights without a lounge pass I snag from LoungeBuddy: An indulgent-but-not-obscene spend (between $30-40 in most cases) yields a restorative shower, a hot, not-fast-food meal (and, often, a free glass or two of wine)—and, most importantly, the sanity that comes from not having to set up camp and search for WiFi and outlets between flights in crowded airport terminals.

For our series “To Me, From Me,” I posed the same question to women who travel almost constantly for work. What’s the one thing they swear by—and aren’t afraid to splash out on—that makes their on-the-go lifestyles a little smoother and a heck of a lot less stressful? Read on for their picks, from a $48 restorative overnight facial you can fall asleep in (hello, jet lag) to a $550 carryon that holds up trip after trip (after trip).
