Beauty Test Drive: L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lipcolour Stars Collection

I’ve had a love-hate relationship with lipstick for the last two years. I love red lipstick and apply it perfectly in the morning, even using a matching lip liner to outline and fill in my lips first. But it never fails that once I take a mouthful of yogurt at work, my spoon is wearing most of my lipstick. I can’t stand to see lipstick marks on utensils, glasses, or napkins, especially if I’m the smudgy culprit. What I hate more, though, is having lipstick on my teeth and no one telling me. So I was pretty psyched to try out L’Oreal’s Infallible Never Fail Lipcolour Stars Collection in Beyonce Red, a very vibrant red suitable for life in the limelight and on stage. The Infallible lip color basecoat and topcoat are housed in a handy-dandy compact that functions as a mirror in a pinch too. Although the name suggests this cosmetic is incapable of error, there are some rules to follow. Keep reading »

Which Beauty Products Can You Share With Friends?

Personally, I would never, ever use the tester products at stores like Sephora. Everyone’s grimy fingers and germs are all over everything, the makeup palettes are left out for who knows how long, and it’s just plain dirty. But while I would never share beauty items with strangers, I’m not so picky with friends. My best best friends are allowed to borrow certain items — lip balm, eyeshadow, and blush, but never eyeliner or mascara for some reason. So when I found out just which items I should and shouldn’t be sharing, I was more than a little shocked. Read on to find out which beauty products to keep to yourself. Keep reading »

Watch What A Bikini Wax Feels Like (For Those Of You Too Scared To Try)

Everyone is asking me what my recent bikini wax felt like, but honestly, it’s difficult to find the right words. Really, what words are there to describe the experience of having hot wax ripped off your vulva?

But a picture is worth a thousand words, so they say, and luckily for us, a reader sent me this YouTube video of her first bikini waxing. Don’t worry, you won’t see another lady’s vadge — just her OMFG-why-am-I-doing-this facial expressions and hear a pernicious riiiiiiip in the background. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Beach Bum Shows Off Their Lindsay Lohan Love

If you happen to be in New York City today and pass by the Beach Bum Tanning Salon at 239 7th Avenue, take note of their interesting bright orange accessory. The fake bake salon is showing their support and devotion for Lindsay Lohan — a valued longtime customer — by staging a protest and wrapping the store in an orange ribbon to speak out against her jail time. In addition to the solidarity ribbon, employees created homemade signs that read, “We love you Lindsay! Come home soon” to picket with during their “Free Lindsay” rally. Clearly, the business is missing her unwavering support (ahem, money) and those regular visits needed to keep up her perfect orange glow. But interestingly, she’s not the first starlet to gain support from Beach Bum during her time in lock-up, as Paris Hilton was the subject of the salon’s protest back in 2007. Poor Beach Bum. They’ve been the subject of two injustices this year: dealing with the tanning tax and losing out on two weeks of Lindsay’s visits. (Oh, and if you happen to pass by and snap a photo, {encode=”tips@thefrisky.com” title=”email it”} to us!) [Gawker] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: My First Bikini Wax

I’ve waxed my eyebrows. I’ve waxed my upper lip. But when it came to waxing my ladyparts, I passed. I checked out. I just chose to be a noncombatant. I removed excess hair on my eyebrows and on my upper lip because it embarrassed me. But did it make sense to be embarrassed — nay, to form an opinion at all — about a part of my body seen by no one but me? No, I decided, it didn’t. In fact, a woman’s vagina is so personal and so private that I thought it would be pretty un-feminist to feel shame that it didn’t look quote, unquote “pretty.” (And yes, I’ve seen Eve Ensler’s play “The Vagina Monologues,” like, eight times.) Besides, who would want to let an aesthetician down there with her tongue depressor dipped in hot wax? Surely someone of heartier stock than I.

Then I had my first bikini wax at age 26 and surprised myself by liking it. Keep reading »

What A Subtle Tattoo

My mom was pissed when she saw the tiny tat on the bottom of my foot. Little did she know that I could have gotten much more more aggressive with my inking. [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »
