The classic BEAUTYSHAMBLES subscription: the essential longform  columns delivered to your inbox either once or twice per week (I'm keeping this flexible; it's the same wordcount in the end either way). This is a great option!

RECOMMENDED TIER. I detest editors who tell you to buy overpriced stuff and act like they're so great at their jobs. The editor in chief of Beautyshambles, ME, will never do that: this tier will include clothing and home decor picks which will NEVER BE EXPENSIVE and will ALWAYS BE DOPE. I'll show you what I'm buying—the $7 poster that will make your apartment 10x cooler in three seconds, or the edgiest sweatpants on the internet... For my true old school fans, you also get my "lost" xoJane columns, reposted, with behind the scenes commentary and insight into what was really going on!  As I said, I definitely RECOMMEND this tier and not EVEN because I am particularly greedy for your extra dollar...Yes, I said EDGY sweatpants.

DON'T SIGN UP FOR THIS !!  I AM SUPER BEHIND AND FREAKING OUT . THANK YOU LOVE YOU GUYS *UPDATED! One call every 12 weeks until we shrink this group!* Crazy Patreon has suggested the phone call thing and--YOLO. For $17 a month, you get everything else in the other tiers AND I will call you. (After we do the call, you can move down to the $6 tier.)  We will build an intimate long-term relationship accordingly.

About Cat Marnell



***BEAUTYSHAMBLES has been featured in The Cut, WWD, Page Six, the Daily Mail, HypeBae and more!***

What up though! It's me, CAT MARNELL, New York Times Bestselling author and former "beauty editor who smoked crack" (thanks, Telegraph).

I'm the former beauty director of and was the associate beauty editor at Lucky magazine. I also worked in the beauty departments at Glamour, Teen Vogue, and NY/LON. 

If enjoyed my memoir HOW TO MURDER YOUR LIFE, or if you liked my reign of terror tenure at xoJane, or even if you miss my crazy VICE column "Amphetamine Logic", this is the place for you. 

BEAUTYSHAMBLES is not just a place where I tell you my beauty secrets, but also an ALTERNATIVE LIFESTYLE guide. 

Of course, l will be taking you to some crazy f-ing parties! You know me...

Please subscribe...and let's get started!!


P.S. People hit me up all the time asking for links to my old xoJane columns, which no longer live on the internet. So by popular demand, I'm putting my old xoJane columns "back" online here.
