Beauty Test Drive: JK Jemma Kidd Primer

Beauty Test Drive: Dermelect ME Peptide Infused Nail Color Treatment

I’m not going to lie: I get a manicure once a week. It’s a luxury, yes, but for me it’s a necessary one that’s worth the $13 and twenty minutes…

Beauty Test Drive: Avon Glimmersticks Diamonds Eyeliner

Eyeliner, where have you been all my life? I have enough eyeshadows and eyeshadow palettes to keep me going until 2036. But after an unremarkable experience with a plain brown…

Beauty Test Drive: Maybelline Line Stiletto

Beauty Test Drive: Maybelline Master Precise Eyeliner

As much as I love trendy makeup looks like gold smoky eyes and sparkly teal eye shadow, my all-time favorite will always be winged black eyeliner. It’s sexy, it’s dramatic,…

Beauty Test Drive: BECCA Eye Tint Créme

I’ve found an easy-peasy smoky eye in a tube. Yeah, a tube. It’s not an eyeshadow — it’s a cream. No brushes required. No large palettes to carry around. No loose…
