Face The Music: 3 Primping Playlists For Any Occasion

I’m a big believer in the rituals of going out: having some time to yourself to shower, dress, primp, style, and psyche yourself up before barreling into the night (or day) can really set the tone for your excursion. Part of my ritual involves creating meticulous Spotify playlists for specific moods, occasions, or seasons. Sometimes they’re thematically cohesive (like for Christmas), sometimes they’re just songs that “feel” like autumn or a particular kind of makeup style I’m wearing. Have you ever listened to “Just Like Honey” while putting on black eyeliner? It is a delight!

Below, I’ve compiled three primping playlists for three different occasions: going out to dance, having hot fun in the summer, and spending time with girlfriends. Keep reading »

Shampoo Might Have Carcinogens In It (And I’m Terrified)

No Shampoo Q&A
All Your No Shampoo Questions, Answered!
All your questions about the no 'poo lifestyle, answered! Read More »

In case we don’t have enough to worry about these days, our daily shampoo routine might be a major health threat.

Have you ever heard of cocamide DEA? Until today, I hadn’t either, but it’s a form of coconut oil that’s been chemically modified and is used to make bath products thicker or foamier. It can turn up in things like soap, shampoo and conditioner. In June 2012 the state of California listed cocamide DEA as a known cause of cancer. Last summer, the Center for Environmental Health in Oakland, California filed lawsuits against some major household companies for selling shampoo and other products with cocamide DEA without including a legally required warning label on the bottle. Yes, this stuff is so scary that it requires a warning label!  Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Etre Belle Liplift Peel

Beauty Test Drive: Liplift Peel

At times, my lips are so dry they resemble truck tires. And then when I wear matte lip colors or stains, they adhere to the dead skin leaving a patchwork mess. The look and feel isn’t attractive, trust. I have been on the hunt for a lip scrub to revive my pout for some time and was thrilled to receive this Liplift Peel. Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Topshop Smoky Eye Palette

Nothing Says Fierce Like Smoky Eyes

I love a good smoky eye, so when Topshop’s Smoky Eye Palette in Tuxedo arrived at The Frisky office, I was eager to Beauty Test Drive it. While sultry, smoky eyes aren’t for the faint of heart, it makes a big statement when when you’re looking to amp up your sex appeal. For a night on the town, hot date or boudoir shoot (like the one I recently did, where I used this palette!), sexy, smoky eyes are key. For a dramatic look, Topshop’s Tuxedo palette includes four highly pigmented eyeshadows to create a variety of looks: a charcoal black, rich plum, deep purple and shimmery nude. So did it live up to it’s hype? Keep reading »

Beauty Breakdown: 7 Makeup Looks We Loved At The Met Ball (And How To Get Them!)

The clothes at last night’s fancy-pants Met Ball soiree were pretty and all, but I’m never going to be able to afford a custom-made, one-of-a-kind Lanvin dress. Not like I would have anywhere to wear it, so whatever. I — and you! — can, however, take some cues from some of the daring and stunning makeup looks worn by fabulous ladies like Beyonce, Emma Stone, and Marion Cotillard. Here are seven of my favorite made-up faces, plus the exact products used to achieve such flawlessness…

How to keep your lip color looking fresh all day long. Read More »

Before I go into this Beauty Test Drive, I’d like to declare my fondness for Topshop Beauty products. I’ve tried out a fair share of makeup in my day, and I’m generally a big fan of Topshop’s price point, quality and coverage. This time around, I decided to test three purple Topshop lip products: Gloss Ink in Cruel, Velvet Finish Moisturizing Lipstick in On The Town and Lip Cream in Double Take. Purple hues are NOT normally my jam since I have very fair skin, but I decided to step outside my comfort zone and give ‘em a whirl. With that said, it was not a good idea. My expressions pretty much say it all, but if you want the in-depth review, here goes nothin’… Keep reading »
