Poor jellybeans and chocolate rabbits-somehow, they've become the also-rans of the spring candy season. Unlike the almighty Peeps, no one argues about whether it's best to eat them fresh, stale or microwaved. No one sponsors diorama contests around them, and their merchandise is considerably less cute (seriously, just look at this Peeps dog plush toy!). For whatever reason, the 60+-year-old Peeps have quite the cult following-and the goods to prove it. Check out these clever iterations, even if you don't like the real thing.

It seems everyone we meet has a different mascara they swear by. Yes, some cult favorites pop up time and time again, but we're always intrigued by the multitude of mascaras mentioned by makeup artists, models, and celebs alike. So, why are some lash enhancers cast aside by one person, yet totally beloved by another? It's because, just like hair texture or skin type, the state of your lashes is unique to you. Unfortunately, mascara marketers don't use a problem-based approach to pedaling their products. So, it's not easy to tell which lash enhancer would best benefit your particular lash needs. To get to the bottom of it, we called in makeup artist Elisa Flowers. She's coated the lashes of many a top model and A-list celeb in her day, so we knew she'd have some insight into how to find the right mascara for every type of lash - from short to straight. Click on through to discover your ultimate mascara match.

Though we're just a few days into the royal family's tour of Australia and New Zealand, the star of the trip has already become clear: he's eight months old, he's single-handedly brought moniker-flaunting clothing back into vogue, and-like his mother-he is seemingly incapable of taking a bad photograph. Let's take a look at George's most adorable moments during the royal tour so far.
- Fri, Mar 14, 2014 5:55 PM EDT | CommentsHouzz, one of our favorite websites, recently released the results of their kitchen trends study.
