Beauty Test Drive: LORAC Touch-Up To Go Concealer/Foundation Pen

Watch Jessica Try It!

As a lady with more than a little redness on her face, concealer is one of my must-have beauty products. Concealers come in many forms, like sticks, tubes, and pots, but my particular favorite is a pen or wand. With a foundation wand, you can apply it directly onto your skin and pat it down with the applicator yourself — that way, you never have to touch your face with your dirty fingers. (Do I really need to remind you that touching your face is BAD for your skin?) Plus, it’s super easy to carry in your purse for touchups throughout your day. LORAC clearly had this in mind with their new Touch-Up To Go Concealer/Foundation Pen, which I’m happy to report is part of my daily beauty routine now. Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: The Benefit Brow Treatment

Benefit Brow Bar Test Drive

Jessica and I were invited to the Benefit Boutique in Soho to meet with “Project Runway” mentor Nick Verreos, “Under The Gunn” winner Oscar Garcia-Lopez, and Benefit global beauty authority Annie Ford Danielson. Annie unveiled the new Benefit apron designed by Oscar as we all discussed the little things that can transform how a woman feels about herself. When asked, I said that I feel like I look my best with defined eyebrows. Let me tell you, the beauty experts at Benefit take eyebrows very seriously. When they offered a full service brow treatment, I jumped at the chance to have a beautician tend to these caterpillars. Keep reading »

I only get roses on birthdays and the occasional Valentine’s Day, so when I received Bite Beauty’s Limited-Edition Deconstructed Rose Lip Gloss Library, I knew it was a special occasion. Almost too pretty to use, the palette features 12 different hues of pink and red lip glosses, inspired by the colors found in a bouquet of roses. Obviously, I needed to test them all out one by one.

Beauty Test Drive: Formula X’s Nail Colors In Thrilling & Sci-Fi

Beauty Test Drive: Formula X Nails

When it comes to spring nail color, I’m feeling a bit torn between my favorite poppy red and the pretty pastel shades that are big for the season. Unlike Jessica’s creamy coloring, my olive skin tone often clashes with rich pastels. On a routine trip to Sephora — what? —  I spotted these Formula X colors and decided to give them a shot.

Beauty Test Drive: Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo

Beauty Test Drive: Klorane Dry Shampoo

Between my super dry scalp and the cold winter weather, I’ve been trying really, really hard to wash my hair less often. This is not a fun goal to have when your hair is very blonde and does not hide oil well. The solution to extending the time between hair washing without having super gross hair? Dry shampoo, of course! But finding the right dry shampoo for me turned out to be more of a “Goldilocks & The Three Bears” situation than I expected. After trying dry shampoos that were too clumpy, too smelly, too powdery, too heavy, and too light, I finally found one that was juuuuuuust right: Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk. Read on for details! Keep reading »
