Beauty Test Drive: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencil

Beauty Test Drive: Philosophy “The Present” Clear Makeup

Beauty Test Drive: Boscia Luminizing Black Mask

It’s Boscia, not blackface. Boscia’s done some amazing marketing because the instant I saw this on the shelf at Sephora, I had to have it. A peel-off mask that’s as…

Beauty Test Drive: Target PixiGlow Fairy Dust Highlighter

Highlighter is makeup that sounds like it was invented by the beauty industry just to sell you more crap that you don’t need. But at least for me, once I…

Beauty Test Drive: L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes

Contrary to popular belief, all mascaras are not made equal. Case in point: Diorshow, one of the few cult favorite beauty products wherein literally everybody is in the cult. Beauty…

Beauty Test Drive: L’Oreal EverCreme Cleansing Conditioner

I make a general point of treating my hair gently, especially since I ill-advisedly went for the big cut a year ago. With kitchen scissors, over the bathroom sink, I…

Looking pretty is all about light in the right places: that is the philosophy behind Pixi’s new PixiGlow-inspired line for Target.

Beauty Test Drive: REN Pore Minimizing Mask

The open pores on my nose drive me crazy, and when I say I’ve tried everything to shrink them, I mean everything: cleansers, masks, serums, creams, drugstore, department store, made…

Beauty Test Drive: Benefit Cosmetics’ Watt’s Up Highlighter

Highlighter is one of those makeup products that sounded kind of like BS to me, like lip gloss primer. Really? Do I really need this? Then a makeup artist at…

Beauty Test Drive: Sephora Moonshadow Baked Eye Palette

When Sephora sent me their Moonshadow Baked Eye Palette  to test, I was concerned. First of all, there’s lots of sparkles. As much as I love a sparkly highlighter to fake…

Beauty Test Drive: The Body Shop’s Spiced Pumpkin Body Wash

I am prefacing this review with a note about a hilarious argument (well, I thought it was) Jessica and I just had. Jessica seems to believe that A) body wash

Beauty Test Drive: Sweet Pea Body Butter Duo

Beauty Test Drive: L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Gloss

I’m going to be honest: what initially drew me to L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Gloss was the packaging. I’m the first to admit that I’m a sucker for advertising —…

Beauty Test Drive: Revlon Colorstay Lipstick

I discovered Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick by accident. I was at Walgreens (because I’m always at Walgreens) looking for a long-wearing pink lipstick. I picked one that had some…
