Beauty Test Drive: Topshop Smoky Eye Palette

beauty-test-drive-topshop-eye-palette
Nothing Says Fierce Like Smoky Eyes

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 on the town, hot date or boudoir shoot (like the one I recently did, where I used this palette!), sexy, smoky eyes are key. For a dramatic look, Topshop’s Tuxedo palette includes four highly pigmented eyeshadows to create a variety of looks: a charcoal black, rich plum, deep purple and shimmery nude. So did it live up to it’s hype? Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Sonia Kashuk Pearlescence Longwear Crème Shadow

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 for Beauty Test Drive, A compact size, this product travels well and my hope was that it would be perfect to carry in my purse for quick touchups between work and happy hour. So, did it live up to my desires? Let’s find out… Keep reading »

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 pull off. It’s almost like a paler, softer, more washed-out take on the shot of electric green shadow in the smoky eye at the Atelier Versace show (at right), which I also loved, but there’s something that’s just so pretty about this pastel seafoam shade in particular. It looks sort of ethereal and fairy princess-y on Elle’s fair, rosy complexion, and it would also look absolutely killer on someone with darker skin.

I’m a total wimp when it comes to bright makeup on myself, but this is one way to do it without looking bonkers, so long as there’s minimal color on the rest of the face. I would recreate this look one of two ways: with a liner applied close to the lashline, like Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Electric, a bright iridescent teal, or with a shadow, like Make Up For Ever Eyeshadow in Light Blue 118, swept across the entire lid. Would you try it, or do you think this is a look best left to the pros and/or baby fashion muses?

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 heart out.

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.

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 in his grave. In a shocking move, given the prestige nature of the brand overall, the beauty range (my favorite of YSL’s offerings and, rather appropriately, the only one I can afford) of the Parisian fashion house is going public with their love of Facebook. So public, in fact, that they’re willing to put it in writing — which they did, on the packaging of an exclusive new eyeshadow palette called “Devoted To Fans.” Keep reading »
