About Us

BeautyNewsNYC is the first online beauty magazine. Founded in 2003 by esteemed designer Kimberly McDonald, our loyal readership has proliferated ever since. We offer the most swoon-worthy in beauty, lifestyle, fashion and entertainment, both in NYC and around the world. Our mission: to uncover intriguing products, places and services, put them through their paces, and arm our readers with unbiased, genuine reviews from a group of writers whose tastes and experiences are as varied as those they serve.

Helmed by co-Editors-in-Chief/Publishers Candice Sabatini and B. Kim Taylor since 2011, BeautyNewsNYC is one of the most highly respected online beauty & lifestyle publications. We reach professional women, a cultured, savvy and sophisticated group and we reach them through multiple channels: through our magazine, our subscription-based City Pulse mailings, and social media outlets such as Twitter and Facebook.

Our articles resonate with beauty junkies who are ahead of the curve, hair & skincare fanatics who care about the latest science and trends, the fashion forward who await our runway reviews, fragrance lovers who know or want to know the difference between a chypre and a floriental, home décor dabblers, spa hoppers who love new trends in massages and facials, culture vultures, pet owners who pamper their darlings, metro moms and metro men. Our city pulse section highlights what’s new in NYC and offers free giveaways. The travel section takes you around the globe, and our Dating section advises if he’s a keeper or just a fling. Our How To section clarifies beauty rituals, and our Health & Fitness section highlights anything that gets you in shape or keeps you healthy. Cocktails, craft beers, and organic wine bars can be savored in our Wines & Spirits section.

Check out our Deal of the Day for lucky readers, subscribe to our City Pulse mailing, and watch useful videos on the BN NYC site; we’re also on Facebook and Twitter.

Our large staff of professional writers and editors is comprised of genuine influencers who curate the beautiful and the interesting. While we do receive product samples from companies and publicists, we’re never influenced by those samples, advertising or sponsored ads. In other words: we don’t review products unless we love them so much, they give us the vapors!

Join us as we continue to grow, stretch and revel in the beauty, excitement and inspiration of New York City, Paris, Los Angeles, Miami and beyond.
