Beauty Trend: Bright Fuschia Lips

Beauty Trend: Bright Fuschia Lips

The CFDA Awards were a few days ago, but it’s never too late to appreciate flawless makeup game. Solange Knowles didn’t wild out on anyone as far as I know, but she did go crazy with a tube of bright fuschia lipstick. Hot pink with a little dash of purple in it, fuschia lipstick looks amazing on all different skin tones and will make it impossible for people to stop staring at your mouth. So make sure you don’t have anything stuck in your teeth and rock one of the fuschia shades on your kisser ASAP. Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Etre Belle Liplift Peel

Beauty Test Drive: Liplift Peel

At times, my lips are so dry they resemble truck tires. And then when I wear matte lip colors or stains, they adhere to the dead skin leaving a patchwork mess. The look and feel isn’t attractive, trust. I have been on the hunt for a lip scrub to revive my pout for some time and was thrilled to receive this Liplift Peel. Keep reading »

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: Gloss Ink in Cruel, Velvet Finish Moisturizing Lipstick in On The Town and Lip Cream in Double Take. Purple hues are NOT normally my jam since I have very fair skin, but I decided to step outside my comfort zone and give ‘em a whirl. With that said, it was not a good idea. My expressions pretty much say it all, but if you want the in-depth review, here goes nothin’… Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Topshop Lip Cream Vs. Lipstick

Beauty Test Drive: TopShop Lips

Ever see four versions of the same lip color and wonder WTF is the difference? Welcome to my world. I started wearing bold lip colors about a year ago and I find myself at a loss when offered too many options. Luckily I work at The Frisky and get to Beauty Test Drive several colors without breaking the bank. Topshop sent me two bright orangey lip colors to test out — but how were they different and which did I prefer? Let’s find out… Keep reading »

Beauty Breakdown: January Jones’ Retro Glam Lashes & Bright Red Lips

Beauty Breakdown: January Jones' Retro Glam Lashes & Bright Red Lips

Normally I’m pretty against plastic surgery, but I would not say no to a total January Jones Face Transfusion. Look at her face. It’s so pretty. Sigh. Science has obviously not gotten to a point where we can steal celebrity faces for ourselves, and I don’t know that January would be down for such a thing anyway, but luckily we can copycat her makeup! After the jump, I explain how to do it! Keep reading »

In case you haven’t heard, the ’90s are back in a big way, with mixed results. I’m happy to leave hair scrunchies and clunky sandals back in middle school, but deep, rich, wine-stained lips are a ’90s beauty trend I’m happy to see come back in a big way. Kerry Washington and Margot Robbie rocked plum pouts at the Academy Awards, and yesterday, Emma Watson was spotted with gorgeous wine-stained lips of her own. Want to slick on a little bordeaux? Here are nine wine-colored lipsticks that would look smashing on just about anyone… Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: NARS Final Cut Satin Lip Pencil

I know it’s not the most mature makeup pursuit, but I’ve been searching for the perfect soft pink lipstick since I was, oh, 15. It needed to have a creamy texture, a tone that would look fabulous with a tan but wouldn’t wash me out in winter, and the color had to be perfect: not frosted and cheap looking, but still bright and fun. After trying out NARS’ new Villa Lante satin lip pencil from the Final Cut collection, I might have finally found it… Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick

I’m not a lipstick person. Not in the slightest. For the most part, avoiding lipstick is due to my enormous fear that it’s going to smear all over my face or my teeth. I’ve seen it happen to too many women and my second-hand embarrassment for them has scared me away from wearing lipstick in my day to day life. I’ll wear it on a rare special occasion, but otherwise my lip product of choice is Eos lip balm.

The thing is, though, I like how lipstick looks on me. Every time I’ve ever gotten my makeup done by a professional, they finish with the lips and I love how it looks. I have small, thin lips and it’s sort of amazing, the optical illusion tricks that can give me a pout that I cannot believe is on my own face. So when a girl friend took me shopping at Make Up For Ever to buy makeup for my wedding, I bought their Rouge Artist Natural lipstick in a sheer natural pink (Iridescent Pink Gold — shown on me after the jump!) that’s perfect for every day wear.
