Beauty Test Drive: Nails Inc. Matte Top Coat

Matte Nail Polish

When I first got my hands on a bottle of Nails Inc. Westminster Bridge Matte Top Coat, my first question was why anyone would even care whether their nails were matte. The matte trend has come around several times these past few years, but it never really made any sense to me. Most of the polish I use isn’t all that shiny to begin with, so wouldn’t a matte look just dull it down even more? After trying this top coat, though, I’m definitely a fan. There’s something understated and chic about a matte nail. Keep reading »

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

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 some “oomph” in my hair, before whipping out a canister of this texturizing & volumizing powder. Let me tell you, it is life changing, my friends. Oh, and the best part is that a portion of the proceeds will go to Look Good Feel Better, a nonprofit dedicated to improving the self-esteem of those undergoing cancer treatment. It’s a win-win.

Beauty Test Drive: False Eyelashes At The Beach

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 them out in extreme conditions. My guiding principle for this Beauty Test Drive was “What would Kim Kardashian do?” Embracing her doe-eyed optimism, I took the Eylure lashes to a place where they probably haven’t been before — the beach. Here’s how it went. Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Makeup Academy Luminizing Lip Gloss And Anti-Feathering Lip Liner

I may have a love/hate relationship with Taylor Swift, but if there’s one thing we have in common, it’s loving a bright red lip. So, when I heard that a new premium beauty line (with over 100 lip products!) became available exclusively at CVS/pharmacy, I went on the hunt for an affordable and kickass red gloss. Like the answer to my cosmetic prayers, I found Makeup Academy’s Luminizing Lip Gloss in Crimson and Anti-Feathering Lip Liner in Red, and decided to give them a good, old-fashioned Beauty Test Drive.

Beauty Test Drive: Eyelure Katy Perry Lashes In Lovely Lolita

Beauty Test Drive: Eyelure Katy Perry Lashes In Lovely Lolita

Who doesn’t love a little glam? I certainly do. So when I was given the opportunity to Beauty Test Drive a pair of Eyelure False Lashes, I wasn’t going to pass it up. There were hundreds of pairs to choose from (including these dramatic falsies which Sophie tried out!), but I was immediately drawn to Katy Perry’s collection since she’s one of the fiercest females in the game. I opted to try out her Lovely Lolita lashes, a subtle but voluminous pair to give my peepers some pop. Keep reading »
