Beauty Test Drive: Topshop Smoky Eye Palette

I love a good smoky eye, so when Topshop's Smoky Eye Palette in Tuxedo arrived at The Frisky office, I was eager to Beauty Test Drive it. While sultry, smoky eyes aren't for the faint of heart, it makes a big statement when when you're looking to amp up your sex appeal. For a night…

Beauty Test Drive: Sonia Kashuk Pearlescence Longwear Crème Shadow

As I mentioned last week, Katie and I recently got the opportunity to meet makeup expert Sonia Kashuk to discuss her new collection of affordable makeup for Target. One of the items that caught my curiosity was the Pearlescence Longwear Crème Shadow. Like many of Sonia’s products we chose to try…

How Do You Feel About Teal Eye Makeup?

We've been feeling an unexpected dash of color on the eyes as of late, probably in an effort to counteract the SAD effects of gloomy winter weather. Elle Fanning is definitely a pioneer of adventurous, avant-garde fashion and makeup, but I happen to think this is one quirky liner look that anyone could…

Taylor Swift Should Never, Ever Get Back Together With Her Makeup Artist

Okay, fine, her skin looks amazing, but I really want to come at Tay Tay with some cotton swabs, makeup remover, and a blending brush right about now, because all that rust eyeshadow is making her look rather corpse-y. On the plus side, her breasteses look fab! Harry Styles, boy, eat your clam-loving…

The Color Of The Year: Emerald Green

Every year, the people over at Pantone declare one color the color of the year. It's the color you're going to see a whole lot of for the next 12 months. This past year's color was Tangerine Tango, but just this week, Pantone announced the color of 2013 -- Emerald Green. We thought…

Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Gets Social With A Facebook-Inspired Shadow Palette

Is this really happening? Have I stepped into a warped alternate reality in which Yves Saint Laurent (or shall I say, Saint Laurent Paris) deigns itself to something … low-budget? Even a little bit … tacky? I'll break the news to you, very slowly, and keep quiet now so we don't have poor Yves rolling…

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 powder flaking on the tops of my cheeks. BECCA's Eye Tint créme is the easiest smoky eye I've ever done.

Makeup Bag: Rose Gold Is No Longer Just For Jewelry

Is it just me, or was the beauty for this year's Oscars kind of a bore? The ladies looked lovely as always, but for the life of me I couldn't pick out a makeup look that really wowed. Maybe it's because some of the real stunners, the young actresses who can afford to dare to…

Beauty Test Drive: Target PixiGlow Fairy Face Palette

Looking pretty is all about light in the right places: that is the philosophy behind Pixi's new PixiGlow-inspired line for Target. And it's a philosophy they've fulfilled more than admirably. I actually love their Fairy Face Palette so much that I've used it daily since December and I'm already fretting about whether I'll be able…

…And A Sparkly New Year!

Don't let sparkles be just for New Year's Eve. Bat your eyes all year long with Sonia Kashuk for Target's "Pretty In Pink" eye palette. The powders are metallic, but not glittery, in pinkish hues that scream "pretty," not "drag queen." (Not that there's anything wrong with drag queens! It's just not an office look…

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 cheekbones in my big ol' chipmunk cheeks, I stopped wearing glitter on my eyes around, oh, age 17. Sparkly-ness is not something I look for…

Eyeshadow With A Taffy Texture And Cute Packaging To Boot

A little birdie told us that Jelly Pong Pong's eyeshadow would be irresistibly cute. For starters you have an ultra sweet bird detail sitting atop the pot, making it a perfect display item for your vanity. Second, the product features a unique blend of melted-down shadow, coconut oil, and vitamin E, which creates a "taffy…

Beauty Test Drive: Dior Holiday Collection Eyeshadow Quad

I'm not the type of woman who spends her money on one high-quality product — no, I'm a lots-of-little-cheaper-things, Forever 21-type of shopper. But when it comes to spending a little more money on much better quality makeup, Dior's Holiday Collection Makeup Palette For The Eyes will convert me. At $44, it's a little…

Quotable: Is It A Faux Pas To Match Your Makeup To Your Outfit?

"If the shade is in the same family, but a slight variation it should be okay."-- Jillian Dempsey, a celebrity makeup artist and Patrick Dempsey's wife, answered a question that's been on my mind since Michelle Obama wore blue eyeshadow with a blue gown to the White House State Dinner. The first…

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,…

Give Katy Perry’s Purple Eyeshadow A Try

It's hard to ignore the hideous '80s images that flash before our eyes when we think of purple eyeshadow, but a recent uptick in celebs pulling off the look has forced us to re-consider our fear of the stuff. Katy Perry may look a little bit like a pretty bobblehead doll in this picture…
