Beauty Test Drive: Kate Spade’s New Eau De Parfum, Twirl

Watermelon wouldn’t be our first choice for an eau de parfum. Who shops for fragrances thinking, “Hey, I’d really like to smell like a watermelon today?” To be more accurate, the official scents in Kate Spade’s new eau de parfum Twirl are “pink watermelon, blackberry and red current with additional notes of orange blossom, star…

Beauty Test Drive: Rene Furterer’s “Naturia” Dry Shampoo

I really hate blow-drying my hair. The time. The discomfort. The general dissatisfaction with your non-professional job. Yet for me, blow drying is an absolute necessity thanks to my weird genetic makeup which gave me a mop of crazy curly hair on the top and straight hair beneath that. So I try to get away…

Beauty Test Drive: MAC Haute & Naughty Lash

I’ve become quite the mascara junkie in recent years. I will try anything that promises to both lengthen and thicken my eyelashes. MAC Haute & Naughty Lash gives lashes a natural definition and pack on the drama. How’s this possible? Well, it’s all in the brush …

Beauty Test Drive: Calvin Klein Beauty Fragrance

It’s not every day I come across a fragrance that can be worn year round, but Calvin Klein Beauty is appropriate for summer, fall, and whenever feels right. With notes of jasmine and neo-lily (a new interpretation of a lily), Beauty has a floral essence we’ve all come to identify with summer. But the to…

Beauty Test Drive: Miracle Skin Transformer SPF 20

I was coming to terms with my super oily skin, realizing that I’d always need blotting papers to keep the oil slicks at bay. But then I received some samples of Miracle Skin Transformer SPF 20, and my love/hate relationship with my skin became a complete love affair.

Beauty Test Drive: Klorane Dry Shampoo Changed My Life — And It Could Change Britney Spears’

Distressing, but not altogether shocking news from the Britney Spears’ rumor mill; according to a source who spoke with Heat magazine, Brit’s boyfriend Jason Trawick is getting fed up with her poor hygiene. Spears goes days without showering and changing her clothes — not to mention her weave — and as a result, the source…

Beauty Test Drive: Neosporin Lip Health

I committed a cardinal beauty sin yesterday, guys. You see, contrary to what the beautifully made-up artist at MAC claimed, the Lip Conditioner SPF 15 doesn’t protect and moisturize the lips adequately. I knew my lips were really chapped, yet I still applied my lipstick, only to look as if I were trying to cover…

Beauty Test Drive: Outspoken by Fergie Eau De Toilette Spray

It seems every celebrity has a fragrance nowadays, and oftentimes you get the feeling the celebrity slapped their name on the perfume bottle without regard for what was actually in it. This is not the case with Outspoken by Fergie. The singer not only worked with Avon for two years to develop the fragrance, but…

Beauty Test Drive: Ginger + Liz Colour Collection Nail Polish

I hadn’t really given much thought to vegan and organic nail polish, except to assume that the lacquer probably chips really quickly. All those chemicals traditional polishes contain must be necessary for a reason, right? Boy, was I wrong!

Beauty Test Drive: Peter Thomas Roth Complexion Clearing Pads

As if bikini waxes weren’t inherently embarrassing enough, some of us (read “me”) may or may not have ingrown hair situations that make the whole thing all the more uncomfortable. Perhaps in an effort to put me out of my awkward misery, one of the lovely wax ladies at The Skin Spa suggested Peter Thoma…

Beauty Test Drive: Marc Jacobs Bang Eau De Toilette Spray

It’s not every day that we test products for men here at The Frisky. But Bang is Marc Jacobs’ first masculine fragrance in almost 10 years, so I had to jump at the chance. Plus, did you see how hot Marc looked in the Bang ad? Apparently, this scent is so special that he had…

Beauty Test Drive: Bare Lifts Braless Bra

One of these days we’re going to wise up and give up on the whole braless bra concept. But apparently that day hasn’t arrived yet, because we got super excited when Bare Lifts came in the mail. The adhesives promised to be an “Instant Breast Lift” and we trusted them. In fact, we trusted them…

Beauty Test Drive: Make Up Forever HD Concealer

In our ongoing efforts to find the ideal concealer for these hot months, we gave Make Up Forever’s HD concealer wand a try. We were impressed by the smooth feel, oil-free aspect and the fact that it left us neither dry nor slippery. Our only gripe with the stuff is that you have to be…

Beauty Test Drive: Tarte Lip Stain

At first swipe, we had high hopes for Tarte’s Natural Lip Stain. Lust, the color we tested, had an appropriately sultry name and glided on with a practiced sort of ease, moisturizing as it went. Unfortunately, the honeymoon period soon disappeared and we were left with nothing but faint vestiges of the relationship we’d begu…

Beauty Test Drive: Soulgasm Parfum

Here at The Frisky, anything that enhances frisky business seems like good business. What could be better than a perfume that has a distinct scent, but also leads to seduction? Nothing. Soulgasm, a new perfume by Sasha Varon, is deep, sheer, and definitely intense. The base of the perfume is clean musk, warm amber, and…

Beauty Test Drive: Liquid TimeBalm Spot Concealer

Know what’s not cute? Sweating through your makeup. Also not cute? The icky things that drying concealers do to your face as they try to banish your zits. But come summer (by which we mean the clogged pores of summer), we have a habit of turning to concealers with harsh ingredients out of pimply desperation.

Beauty Test Drive: NARS Multiple Tint

Don’t let the bright pink color fool you, NARS’ new Multiple Tint makeup stick isn’t trying to leave you looking like a hooker after a rough night. In fact, unless you entirely over-swipe, the pretty burst of pink is so subtle that we dare anyone to even realize that it’s not just your natural glow.

Beauty Test Drive: Aveda Botanical Kinetics Exfoliant

Two weeks ago, I came to the realization that you haven’t really felt pure luxury until you’ve hired someone to squeeze gunk from your pores. Forget hot stone massages, Egyptian cotton sheets, and private planes. A facial is the height of luxury, especially when you’re enjoying the treatment at a fraction of the normal price.

Beauty Test Drive: Illamasqua Pure Pigment In Static

I’ve found a miracle in a pot, and, no, I’m not talking illicit drugs. I’m basically obsessed with my latest multi-tasking makeup find. Illamasqua, a British cosmetic company that crossed the pond about a year ago, is known for its bold and vibrant makeup colors, so I was super excited when Catherine (miss ya, girl!)…

Beauty Test Drive: Sarah Jessica Parker SJP NYC Solid Perfume Bracelet

Don’t you just love a multi-tasking product? The SJP NYC Solid Perfume Bracelet not only serves up Sarah Jessica Parker’s iconic style, but also functions as a secret stash for her latest scent. SJP NYC is built around the scent of wild strawberries with hints of floral notes. The sensual fragrance reminds me a little…
