Beauty Test Drive: Givenchy PhenomenEyes Mascara

If we’re being totally honest, the main reason we wanted to try out Givenchy’s new mascara was the weird-looking brush. Check that thing out! It looks like a miniature mace.

Beauty Test Drive: Aveda Firmata Hairspray

Beauty Test Drive: Aveda Light Elements Shaping Wax

Goopy hair products are universally icky. We shouldn’t have to compromise the texture of our hair for the ability to style it, but it’s actually pretty difficult to find styling…
