goop mag #8

    For those of you who are (or cook for the) gluten-free, we bring you some actually good ways to eat pasta with no guilt. I could never, ever give up pasta, and neither should you have to. Depending on the grain, gf pasta textures can be tricky to pair with the right sauce. These are good.
    Make up artist Angela Levin answers all of our questions on how to preserve the last of our summer tans, and a mini edit of some of our ever expanding x goop collaborations (rad).



    This week’s goop collaboration

    Gluten-free Pasta

    Sometimes, the texture of gluten-free pasta can be tricky, making the sauce you pair it with crucial. (For example, brown rice pasta needs a flavorful but lightweight sauce to accommodate its bold taste but delicate texture.) So, we took to the test kitchen to figure out the best pairings.

    Quinoa Rigatoni with Artichokes & Fried Rosemary

    Made with protein-rich quinoa, the fried rosemary adds intense flavor, which is rounded out by the creamy artichokes. Add lots of freshly grated parmesan to this easy (and impressive) dish for entertaining or a quick weeknight meal.

    makes 4

    • 1 lb quinoa rigatoni
    • 2-3 sprigs fresh rosemary
    • 2-3 cloves garlic, sliced
    • 1 small (about 14-ounces) jar of artichokes
    • olive oil
    • sea salt
    • freshly ground pepper
    • parmesan to taste



    Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil and salt generously. Drop in pasta.


    Meanwhile, coat the bottom of a large frying pan with olive oil (about 2 tablespoons) and place over medium-high heat. Add rosemary and fry for a minute in the hot oil to release the flavor. Turn the heat down to medium and add the garlic. Cook until soft and fragrant, about a minute, and then add the artichokes, breaking them up with your fingers while you drop them in. Add about half of the liquid from the jar, season with salt and pepper and stir, cooking for about another minute.


    When the pasta is al dente, drain, reserving ½ cup of pasta water. Add the water to the pan with the pasta, stir and grate a lot of parmesan over the top.

    Brown Rice Spaghetti alla Puttanesca

    This flavorful tomato-based sauce with just a touch of oil coats the sticky noodles well, and the capers, olives and anchovies stand up to the taste of the brown rice pasta.

    makes 4

    • 1 lb brown rice spaghetti
    • two 14-oz cans plum tomatoes
    • 4 anchovies, chopped
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 8-10 pitted Niçoise olives
    • 1 teaspoon capers
    • 1 large pinch red chili flakes
    • olive oil
    • sea salt
    • freshly ground pepper
    • parmesan to taste



    Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil and salt generously. Drop in the spaghetti and stir throughout to keep from sticking.


    Meanwhile, coat a large frying pan with olive oil (about 2 tablespoons) and add the garlic and red chili flakes. Cook until soft and fragrant, about a minute, then add the anchovies and stir until they start to melt. Add the capers and olives, crushing them gently with the back of a wooden spoon. Add the canned tomatoes and bring the heat down to a low simmer. Cook for about 20 minutes.


    When pasta is al dente, reserve 1/2 cup of pasta water and drain. Add the water to the puttanesca along with the spaghetti. Garnish with parmesan and parsley.

    Corn Shells n’Cheese with Sun Dried Tomatoes

    Some shots from the test kitchen...

    The sun-dried tomatoes mixed with the mascarpone and a bit of cream make a beautiful pink sauce, which is a kid-friendly alternative to vodka sauce. Broiling the top at the end gives a nice brown crust without drying out the pasta.

    makes 4

    • 1 lb corn shells
    • 2 anchovies
    • 4-5 sun-dried tomatoes
    • 8 ounces mascarpone
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 1/2 cup cream
    • 1 cup tightly packed grated parmesan cheese, plus more to taste
    • coarse salt
    • freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 1 sprig of thyme to garnish



    Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil and salt generously. Drop in pasta.


    Meanwhile, add a tablespoon of butter to a large frying pan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook for a minute until soft and fragrant, being careful not to burn the butter. Add the cream and milk and cook for a minute. Allow to rest.


    In a large blender, add the garlic/milk/cream mixture along with the mascarpone, parmesan, sundried tomatoes and anchovies. Blend until combined.


    When shells are al dente, drain and add to a baking dish. Pour the cheese mixture over the shells and mix to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Thickly grate a layer of parmesan over the shells, and add a sprig of thyme on top.


    Pop the shells under the broiler for about a minute or two until the cheese begins to bubble and brown. The top will be nice and crusty and the shells will still be gooey and delicious.


    If you haven't already, please take a few minutes to complete our survey. We'd love to hear from you.

    Goop Takes You To Work

    From smart tailoring to statement pieces, here's our workwear edit from our very own fall collection.

    An unexpected move for workwear, our slouchy wool jumpsuit cuts a striking silhouette at the office. Cinch the drawstrings for definition and team with our classic, precision cut blazer, the best investment you can make this season. Pair with fine gold jewellery during the day and switch it up with a statement piece for the evening. We’re wearing it with black studded pumps and a textured bowler bag.

    Accessorize with...

    Alice & Olivia
    studded pumps

    Alice & Olivia bag

    Solange Azagury-Partridge
    rad ring

    Take all the season's best trends to work with this layered up look. Oversized cocooned shape coat, check. Sleek leather satchel, check. The pop of red is a modern update and the gold pinky ring adds polish. Team with a black flat biker boot or chunky heel.

    Wear three ways...

    We love the delicate texture of this wool knit dress with its slim fit silhouette and flared skirt. We're adding our favorite blazer and chunky bag for a sophisticated look. Wear now with bare legs and strappy heels or layer with tights and chunky ankle boots for colder days.

    Extend Your Summer Tan

    Not ready to say goodbye to our summer tan, we decided to find out how to preserve our glow. The amazing LA based make up artist Angela Levin shares her insider tips and go-to products below.


    Exfoliate. Our tendency here is to leave skin alone so as not to remove our summer color. But dry skin looks old, while hydrated, tanned skin appears young and fresh: so regular exfoliation is a must.


    If you have sensitive or pale skin, exfoliate no more than once a week. If you have medium to dark skin, exfoliate twice a week.

    Dr Lancer Natural Sea Mineral Polish

    Aveeno Daily Scrub

    Dr Lancer Blemish Control Polish
    For acne prone skin

    Angela suggests using this twice a week with your cleanser, not every day. For sensitive skin, use once a month

    Gpdeva 18mm Exfoliator Gel


    Twice a week is fine, while exfoliating the drier areas (hands, elbows, feet, ankles, knees, back of arms...) every day.

    Sabon Body Scrub, Delicate Jasmine

    CO Bigelow Orange & Coriander Body Scrub

    L’Occitane Verbena Body Salt Scrub


    Hydrate. Moisturize twice daily using a product that's rich in hydration but fine in texture. Let it soak in for at least 10 minutes. If a greasy layer remains after 10 minutes, you’ve used too much. Take a tissue, lay it on the area and tap lightly to lift the extra oil. Serums are also fantastic and can be used with your moisturizer or instead of. You only need a tiny bit and if you have leftovers, rub into your hands - we always neglect them in the winter! And, if you’re wondering about eye creams, they aren’t essential - a good moisturizer will do the trick.


    Chanel Sublimage La Crème Texture Suprême

    Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer

    Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream

    Ann Semonin Precious Serum

    Decléor Aromessence Rose D’Orent Soothing Serum


    Clarins Baume Corps Super Hydratant

    Dr Harris & Co Almond Oil Skinfood


    Self tan. We all know the basic rule: exfoliate and hydrate before you self tan. For a dark color, lightly exfoliate, moisturize and then apply self tan every day until you reach your ideal color.


    St Tropez Radiance Self Tan for Face

    Chanel Le Beiges Healthy Glow Cream

    Guerlain Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powder


    Lorac Tantalizer Glow Firming Body Bronzing Mousse

    Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs


    Primer. Always use a primer under your foundation; essential for maintaining the summer glow. The overall look is lighter and the effect is long lasting.

    Young Blood Mineral Primer

    Cinema Secrets Ultimate Foundation Primer


    Foundation. Look for a product that’s easy to apply and has longevity to survive cold winter days. Again, a light texture is key. Go for a shade slightly darker than your skin tone, but no more than three shades darker. Blend down to the neck and décolletage.

    Edward Bess Sheer Satin Cream Compact Foundation

    Clé de Peau Beauté Refining Foundation

    Lorac Natural Performance Foundation


    Concealer. This can be used instead of foundation (or use both). Concealer works best under the eyes, around the nose and mouth where redness tends to accumulate.

    Chanel Correcteur Perfection Long Lasting Concealer

    Le Mer The Radiant Concealer

    Ben Nye Pencil Concealers

    Young Blood Ultimate Concealer


    Cream blush. A great product because it's very easy to apply, you can build the color yielding a lovely, fresh sheen that's not too shiny. Using your fingers, tap on your face as opposed to wiping, then use a circular motion to blend in.

    Vincent Longo Water Canvas Blush

    Senna Cosmetics Cheeky Blush

    Le Blush Crème de Chanel


    Eye make up. Iridescent (not shiny), pastel colors are best. Go for mauve, beige, green, gold, silver...

    Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quadra eyeshadow, Variation

    Kevyn Aucoin The Eyeshadow Single No. 102 – Tusk

    Maxfactor Earth Spirits Eye Shadow, Inca Bronze


    Lips. To maintain hydration, apply a gloss over your lipstick. Be sure to stay away from dark colors and matte textures.

    Dr Hauschka Lip Balm

    Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick, Aventure


    Mascara. Use an intense black for top lashes and a pop of color on the bottom. Yellow, blue and purple are best...

    Kevyn Aucoin The Essential Mascara

    Maxfactor 2000 Calorie Mascara, Navy


    Nails. Very simply, the brighter the better to offset your glow. Oranges, reds, golds, pinks...
