Beauty Test Drive: Clinique Almost Lipstick In Black Honey

Clinique’s Almost Lipstick in Black Honey is a certified cult classic, the kind of lip color thing that shows up on best-of and must-have lists everywhere for years and years. It’s widely touted as a color that looks good on everybody. I am reluctant to believe that anything is ever one-size-fits-all. Clothing is not. Shoes are never. Clinique, however, believes that Black Honey is a shade that will look good on every skin tone. So, we put it to the test to see if these spurious claims hold any weight. Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive

The Body Shop’s Lip & Cheek Doll stain has adorable packaging, but does the product on the inside match the outside? I love lip and cheek stains but I find them kind of stressful. When done right, they look fabulous, but when done wrong, they streak all over the place and can look like play makeup.

Beauty Test Drive: Smith & Cult Nail Lacquer In Lovers Creep And Bridge & Tunnel

I’ve been biting the hell out of my nails lately (disgusting, I know), which means I need to keep them constantly painted to prevent me from chewing. Since it’s the holiday season, I jumped on the chance to try Smith & Cult’s gorgeous holiday colors, a dark red called Lovers Creep and a shimmery gold called Bridge & Tunnel.

Own Beauty is all about is all about healthy products that avoid harsh chemicals and are safe for sensitive skin. Their lip treatments are no different – the line is enriched with Vitamin C and E and offer a gentle avenue for moisturizing. On days when there’s no gloss on my lips, I have a tendency to cover them in Chapstick, and I’m always looking for something simple that makes them look a tad more lifelike than plain balm, so this seemed like a perfect option to try out.

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

Londontown Lakur Beauty Test Drive

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 chip-resistant. Here’s how things panned out…
