Beauty Test Drive: Makeup Academy Luminizing Lip Gloss In Crimson & Anti-Feathering Lip Liner In Red

I may have a love/hate relationship with Taylor Swift, but if there’s one thing we have in common, it’s loving a bright red lip. So, when I heard that a new premium beauty line (with over 100 lip products!) became available exclusively at CVS/pharmacy, I went on the hunt for an affordable and kickass red…

Beauty Test Drive: Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask Champagne

I love silver and I love gold, but I rose gold is my absolute favorite. There’s something so elegant and princess-like about the pinkish metallic hue that’s not too flashy, but is still classically pretty. When I heard about Bite Beauty’s new Agave Lip Mask Champagne which has a rose gold pearl tint, I had…

Beauty Test Drive: Topshop Gloss Ink, Lipstick & Lip Cream In Shades Of Purple

Before I go into this Beauty Test Drive, I’d like to declare my fondness for Topshop Beauty products. I’ve tried out a fair share of makeup in my day, and I’m generally a big fan of Topshop’s price point, quality and coverage. This time around, I decided to test three purple Topshop lip products: Glo…

Sweet Macaron Kisses

Winona inspired snarling and gnashing of teeth at The Frisky offices when she announced that her boyfriend knows how to make macarons. She can have the delightful French cookies any time she wants. That bitch! But she’ll be the one green with envy once she sees my cute new macaron lip gloss. The pot ope…

There’s A ’90s Kid In The Product Development Department At Estée Lauder

I have only the fondest memories of Lip Smackers Dr. Pepper lip balm, which I do believe I still harbor at the bottom of a Hello Kitty purse somewhere, but there’s a special place in my heart for the metal roller-ball applicators of yore. (They share rent in that “special place” with all things Lisa…

Beauty Test Drive: Drew Barrymore’s Flower Lip Butter

Never in the million years did I think I’d be recommending you a product sold exclusively at Walmart, renowned big box store of sex discrimination lawsuits and sexist tee shirts. Neither would I have suspected that Drew Barrymore, hippie goddess of love and light, would choose Walmart to exclusively sell her makeup line, Flower. But she…

Last week, when I was in San Jose for the gymnastics Olympic trials, in addition to, you know, hanging with some of the best athletes in world, I also got to get a private makeup consultation with P&G Beauty’s makeup artist Candace Corey. One of the products she recommended to me, that I just lovvvvved,

Lipstick 101: How To Find The Perfect Bold Lipstick

Figuring out how to wear a bold lip can be a daunting task, especially if you’re not used to wearing lipstick. (Or if you’re basically used to ignoring the fact that you have lips on your face altogether.) The wrong shade can wash you out, or make you look lizard-y. And when you’re wearing a…

Makeup Bag: Put Some Spring On Your Lips

Is it still winter? I don’t even know anymore. The calendar says early March, a time of year that’s supposed to be defined by rain, slush, and extreme wind chill, but the weather has been saying 55 degrees and sunny. What?! For all intents and purposes, I have deemed that it is spring. It might a…

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 — I don’t even wear lip gloss. But I laid eyes on Le Gloss at a drugstore chain where I was in a rush to a)…

Glamorous Tartan Holiday

We’d be happy with having this red tartan bag just because it’s perfect for transporting our tiny valuables–like our favorite lipstick, coins, or jewelry. But MAC sweetened the deal by adding VIVA GLAM V lipstick and lip gloss to the ‘Tis Noble to Give VIVA GLAM Lip Bag. What’s even better? All proceeds go to…
