Bare Minerals turned me onto powder foundations eight years ago. I loved the lightweight and medium coverage of their products. This year, Bare Minerals has launched a liquid foundation called BareSkin, an ultra thin formula that promises bright, more even toned skin. So … does it work? Keep reading »
I always think of Covergirl and other drugstore makeup brands as totally trustworthy — they’ve been around for about a billion years, so what could go wrong? For Amy Schavolt of West Palm Beach, FL, things went so wrong with Covergirl’s Bombshell Volume mascara that her eyelashes fell out.
Schavolt told a local news station that at first, people were complimenting her extra-voluminous lashes, but soon the product turned into a bunch of clumpy goop. When she wiped her eye with makeup remover, her eyelashes started to fall out into her hand. The same mascara also left an Arizona woman watching her lashes fall out in front of her. “I’m not a vain person. I didn’t think anybody would see it,” she explained. “But, yes, three people said something to me today. (They said) what happened to your eyes?” (Apparently, she doesn’t have very polite friends.)

The CFDA Awards were a few days ago, but it’s never too late to appreciate flawless makeup game. Solange Knowles didn’t wild out on anyone as far as I know, but she did go crazy with a tube of bright fuschia lipstick. Hot pink with a little dash of purple in it, fuschia lipstick looks amazing on all different skin tones and will make it impossible for people to stop staring at your mouth. So make sure you don’t have anything stuck in your teeth and rock one of the fuschia shades on your kisser ASAP. Keep reading »
Sunburns sound bad. I use the word “sound” because although I know brown people can get tans and sunburn (and should still wear spf!), it takes a lot more for us to get sunburned. I have so much empathy because this does not look like fun at all. Never mind how it feels but I’ve had roommates who couldn’t sit or lay down because it would just sting. Lather yourselves up in sunblock peeps, that Sun feels good but it will get you! Perhaps the worst part is that any part of you that is covered becomes some weird geometric shape that you probably have to live with for quite some time. Some people like to get sassy and make designs with their sunscreen which, I admit, can look like super cool henna tattoos. Seriously though, bless your hearts, people who sunburn easy. Bless your hearts. It takes courage and valor to go to the beach when this can happen. See more photos on College Candy…
We love coconut oil! Not only does it taste oh-so-delicious, it’s also super healthy and can be used in place of many conventional body care products. Since we also love the earth and saving money, swapping out coconut oil for traditional products is a no-brainer. From cooking to skincare to hair treatments to mouthwash, the coconut oil possibilities are endless. Buy yourself an industrial-sized tub of it at Costco, and check out the list below for loads of fun ways to use this “magic oil”… Keep reading »
I have always believed the secret to long, “flirty” eyelashes was simply an eyelash curler. I was wrong. It takes an eyelash curler and Benefit’s They’re Real mascara! Keep reading »
