Beauty Test Drive: Bioré Charcoal Pore Strips, A Facial Cleanser For Drug Addicts

The best free samples in women’s magazines always do two things. 1) Defy the laws of physics and cosmetic packaging to fit flatly into an insert, and 2) never, ever work. Bioré’s Charcoal pore strips were no different.

A copy of Seventeen showed up at The Frisky offices last week and as I was complaining… More »

Beauty IRL: Trust Me, You Should Wear Blush

Don’t fear the blush, even though it is intimidating and weird. It’s the a product many write off as completely unnecessary. but is actually really, really important. Think about it this way: Once you’ve done all that you need to do to your face, you’re left with a beautiful, even-toned canvas — but it’s all the same color.

Beauty IRL: Face Mists Are Fancy Bullshit And I Love Them Anyway

There is perhaps no beauty product more superfluous than face mist. Yeah, you kind of need moisturizer, and some would argue that lipstick or eyeliner is a requirement, but a bottle of water that contains mysterious “minerals” and is scented with various flowers that you spray on your face intermittently throughout the day is not… More »


Beauty IRL: All About Eyebrows

Big, full, dramatic eyebrows are a thing now. If this was 1998, Cara Delevigne’s brows would be waxed within an inch of their life. Lily Collins has brows that are as lush as her father Phil’s melodies. The Kardashian Klan’s eyebrows defy most logic, threaded to perfectly arched perfection. I’d love to see what they… More »


Beauty IRL: Don’t Fear The Bold Lip

I know the beauty industrial complex yells a lot about how the bright lip is the only thing you need in your arsenal, and how it makes you look instantly pulled together, gorgeous and glowy, hiding the hideous shebeast beneath with one swipe. This is the job of most beauty writing. It alternately intimidates and… More »


Beauty IRL: I Cut Off All My Hair (And Only Regretted It A Little Bit)

Beauty mags are full of the same homogenous crap. Skinny, pretty ladies shilling beauty products that cost a whole paycheck, promising to make you look and feel a certain way.

Beauty Test Drive: Londontown Lakur Nail Polish, Base Coat & Hardener

I’ve been looking for a decent top coat for ages, so Londontown’s Kur top coat and nail hardener are more exciting to me than the line’s pretty fall colors. Londontown’s polish is vegan, 5-free, and ultimately better for your nails than a typical chemical-filled polish. The top coat and hardener promise to make nails strong, healthy and… More »


Makeup Bag: 5 Beauty Tips (And Products) For Hiding Your Hangover

We’ve all been there. A coworker asks you out to happy hour, which quickly turns into five hours, eight glasses of Pinot Grigio and absolute dread for the following morning. You may wake up feeling like hell (actually, scratch that, you will wake up feeling like hell), but that doesn’t mean you have to look like it,… More »


Beauty Test Drive: Yotel’s Nail Polish Collaboration With Habit Cosmetics

Sophie and I recently paid a visit to Yotel in Manhattan to check out the quirky hotel chain’s new nail polish collaboration with Habit Cosmetics.

Beauty Test Drive: Sexy Hair’s Caring Is Sexy Powder Play

STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING. I’ve found the best hair product of the year for ladies with limp locks, like myself. I’ve always had pin straight, heavy hair, which means it goes flat within 30 minutes after a blow dry. Not anymore. Before I went out this weekend, a friend of mine told me I needed… More »


Beauty Test Drive: False Eyelashes At The Beach

We’ve already tested the Eylure line of false lashes once, in a controlled, relatively stable, indoor environment. Still, after Sophie’s Beauty Test Drive, I was inspired to give them a whirl myself. Sure, these things look great when you’re sitting in your apartment, straightening your hair and paging through Seamless, but I wanted to try… More »
