Beauty Test Drive: Benefit’s They’re Real! Push-Up Liner

Somehow I managed to enter my third decade on Earth without ever having tried a cat’s eye with gel eyeliner before. Of course I’d worn eyeliners — browns, golds, even blues — but something about that thick, black cat’s eye intimidated me. I thought you needed to have that “cool girl” look, like the author… More »


Frisky Q&A: Nick Verreos From “Project Runway Under The Gun” Wants Your Boyfriend To Wear Makeup

Once upon a time long ago in a land far away … well, okay, it was 2005 on Bravo … there was the world’s most friendly and energetic designer, Nick Verreos. Although he was eliminated on episode 10 (boo), his involvement on the show shot his line,  Nikolaki, co-designed with his partner David Paul, to stardom… More »


Beauty Test Drive: Benefit’s Fakeup Concealer

Concealer is one of those beauty products that isn’t the least bit fun to purchase. It’s a lot more exciting to go straight to the eyeshadows and lip glosses, you know? But the un-fun stuff like foundation and concealer is what someone with, say, redness around their T-zone uses to get an unblemished palette, so… More »


Beauty Test Drive: Fine-One-One Cheek & Lip Brightener

My natural skin color is death warmed up (uh, I mean, “porcelain”) so I’m all about blush and bronzer for achieving that vaguely human look. To me it’s really important that blush and bronzer look as “natural” as possible. Alas, that is not always the case. Benefit Cosmetics sent us Fine-One-One, their new cheek/lip brightening… More »

Beauty Test Drive: Benefit Boi-Ing Concealer

I’ve long complained in these Beauty Test Drives that I have dry skin. The driest skin. Well, I’m going to complain about it again! But this time it is to tell you that Benefit’s Boi-Ing concealer, which has a greasy, almost melted-waxy consistency, is a super choice for quick coverups on the go. Or, in… More »


Never Say “Pore Me!” Again

Huge pores. A lot of us have got ‘em, but they’re not always something we want share with the world. Thank the beauty gods for Benefit’s POREfessional, a translucent balm that minimizes the appearance of pores. Gently rub it over your T-zone, on your chin, your cheeks, and anywhere else where you’d love to see… More »


Beauty Test Drive: Benefit’s Cha Cha Tint Cheek Stain

If a makeup salesgirl (or makeup sales-gay) descended upon me at a beauty counter with something orange, I would visibly make a face and say, “I don’t think that will work on me.” You see, I have the pallor of Katie Holmes at a morgue in Antarctica — not a sun-kissed California girl like Kate… More »


Beauty Test Drive: Benefit Crescent Row Fragrances

We know and love Benefit’s cosmetics well — their Bad Gal eyeliner and Dr. Feelgood complexion primer have been makeup bag staples forever — but we don’t exactly think of them first when it comes to perfume. Strike that notion, because their newish Crescent Row line beats out any old Britney Spears fragrance launch any… More »
