The Frisky’s Drugstore Beauty Picks

As I've mentioned before, I spend approximately 80 percent of my time and income at the Walgreens down the street from my house. I love wandering the aisles of cosmetics, checking out new products, and buying more sparkly eyeshadows and pink lipsticks even though I already own, you know, all of them. I thought it…

Taming The Frizzies? It’s Not A Myth!

Once upon a time, a woman with a thick head of thin hair had a problem. This problem was that every winter, her hair frizzed up like static electricity was running through her veins. She fretted wearing hats. She fretted wearing earmuffs. Winter was quite unpleasant. Then she discovered L'Oreal Professional Mythic Nourishing Oil —…

5 Paychecks To A Better Makeup Bag

Real talk: when it comes to shopping, a single, professional lady's eyes are usually bigger than her stomach. I am not just referring to coveting $250 sandals that you really don't need. I'm taking about the way we try to tackle huge style or beauty problems all at once. We watch too many chick flick…

Makeup Bag: The Best Black Eyeliners

Black eyeliner is the dependent variable of my life. From when I wake up in the morning until I take off my makeup at night, I've got it on … and not exactly subtly, either. While I love a good tightly lined look that defines the eyes without the telltale sign of makeup, I'm all…

A New Skincare Regimen To Ensure 2012 Is Your Glowing-est Year Ever

With all of the new colors, formulas, and innovations that have stepped out onto the makeup scene in the past few months, it can be all too easy to let your basic skincare fall to the wayside. If you're a beauty fiend, the kind of person who enjoys nothing more than the dewy first swipe…

Get Your Glow On

There was once a time, long ago, when I -- desperate to maintain a yearlong tan -- used bronzer made for African-Americans. I finally figured out that wasn't the most "natural"-looking way to go, and have tried many bronzers since, but didn't find the perfect one until now. LORAC's bronzer, first of all, comes i…

10 Face Masks That Will Change Your Life (Or At Least Your Skin)

If you're going to add one thing to your skincare routine, it should be a face mask — that is, if you don't use one already. They come in so many different incarnations and address so many specific issues that it's next to impossible to choose just one to make a habit of. Whatever your…

How To Make 2012 The Year For Long, Strong, Healthy Hair

Let's be honest, the way your hair looks can make or break your day. Ladies who wear short styles aren't entirely exempt from the universal bad hair day, but the odds are more for than against them. Once your hair hits shoulder length, it tends to have a mind of its own. Longer hair i…

…And A Sparkly New Year!

Don't let sparkles be just for New Year's Eve. Bat your eyes all year long with Sonia Kashuk for Target's "Pretty In Pink" eye palette. The powders are metallic, but not glittery, in pinkish hues that scream "pretty," not "drag queen." (Not that there's anything wrong with drag queens! It's just not an office look…

Never Say “Pore Me!” Again

Huge pores. A lot of us have got 'em, but they're not always something we want share with the world. Thank the beauty gods for Benefit's POREfessional, a translucent balm that minimizes the appearance of pores. Gently rub it over your T-zone, on your chin, your cheeks, and anywhere else where you'd love to see…

The Only 2 Products Wavy-Haired Girls Need

I'm usually a little leery of products for different types of hair. Really? There's some magic potion in this foam that's going to turn my poofy locks into a luscious mane? But after years of fighting the subtle wave in my thick but fine hair -- via obsessive flat-ironing -- I finally came around to…

Winter Beauty: 10 Festive Holiday Lipsticks

I love lipstick and own many, but wearing them on a regular day makes me feel … overdone. Of course, the unfortunate byproduct of this is that I rarely give myself the opportunity to wear the colours that I just had to have. Luckily, the winter holiday season is the perfect justification for me. Partie…

Holiday Gift Guide: 10 Gifts For The Avid Bath-Taker

If you catch me with my fingers pruned and my heart rate sluggish, chances are I just got out of the bath. Yes, I have been known to linger in the tub for well over an hour… sometimes approaching two. Sylvia Plath summed it up best in The Bell Jar when she said, "There must…

10 Makeup Palettes That Are Almost Too Pretty To Use

I'll admit it: much of the reason I own so much makeup is because I'm a sucker for aesthetics. Glossy gold tubes, shiny lettering, minimalist sans-serif fonts… these are all variables that contribute to me forking over my debit card in yet another Sephora sin, but what really gets me is colors. When I ope…

Finally, A Red Lipstick For Modest Pouts

Sadly -- and please, get your hankies ready because this is a tearjerker -- I was born with no upper lip. My bottom lip is modest, but the top lip is so thin it's practically non-existent. For as long as I can remember, I've always seen lipstick as something that would only draw attention to…

7 Gorgeous Red Lipsticks & The Celebs Who Love Them

First things first: I never wear red lipstick. I have a fatal combination of lips with a tendency to chap and a complete destitution of desire to draw attention to myself, especially my damn face. I own a number of red lipsticks, all of which I have bought with the best intentions and a daydream of a…

Winter Beauty: 7 Products To Help You Weather The Cold

Oh, dichotomous winter. I love your pretty snow, your brisk air, your holidays… but I loathe what you do to my skin, my hair, my lips! You turn my most powerful (ahem) feminine assets from soft, smooth, and silky to dry, breaking, and brittle. What ever shall I do?

The Perfect Red Lip

Unlike the vast majority of fashion enthusiasts, I wouldn't call myself a Chanel obsessor. Though I covet old photos of Coco with a string of pearls and a cigarette, I refuse to idolize a Nazi spy, and Karl Lagerfeld is about as pretentious and boring as the bouclé suits the line is famous for. Many…
