Beauty Test Drive: Bite Luminous Creme Lipstick

In my ongoing mission to wear bold lipstick more regularly, I’ve been trying on whatever tubes of lipstick are put in front of me without much thought. When I swiped on Bite’s Luminous Creme lipstick, I fell in love. This stuff is the best.

Beauty IRL: Don’t Fear The Bold Lip

I know the beauty industrial complex yells a lot about how the bright lip is the only thing you need in your arsenal, and how it makes you look instantly pulled together, gorgeous and glowy, hiding the hideous shebeast beneath with one swipe. This is the job of most beauty writing. It alternately intimidates and…

How Do I Find My Inner Red Lipstick Chutzpah?

Confession time: I have a weird phobia surrounding bright lipstick. I used to read the online worries of other women who were too fearful to go out in public with a bright red lip and feel smug in my refusal to to get caught up in such petty hang-ups (I know, rude), and now here…

Beauty Test Drive: TopShop Creamy Finish Lipstick In Wicked

I’m super into the dark lip trend that’s going on right now, but with my fair complexion it’s hard to find a color that doesn’t make me look like a vampire. When TopShop sent us some of their new fall/winter lipsticks, I spotted a burgundy color called “Wicked” that I knew I wanted to try.

Color-Changing Henna Lipstick Is So Much Fun

This odd green lipstick, also known as Magic Moroccan Hare Color Changing Lipstick, is one of my favorite beauty products in the whole wide world — and the universe’s resolution smudgy, goopy lipstick hang-ups. It’s often referred to as henna lipstick because of its staining power, though there isn’t any straight-up proof that it’s truly…

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 look…

Beauty Test Drive: Etre Belle 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…

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…

Beauty Test Drive: Topshop Lip Cream Vs. Lipstick

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 color…

Beauty Test Drive: Bite Beauty’s Decontructed Rose Lip Gloss Library

I only get roses on birthdays and the occasional Valentine’s Day, so when I received Bite Beauty’s Limited-Edition Deconstructed Rose Lip Gloss Library, I knew it was a special occasion. Almost too pretty to use, the palette features 12 different hues of pink and red lip glosses, inspired by the colors found in a bouquet…

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,…

Beauty Trend: Wine-Stained Lips

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

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…

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 i…

3 Ways To Wear Wine-Colored Lipstick This Holiday Season

I feel like we kind of have an “honesty at all times” policy over here at The Frisky. I may not be particularly forthcoming about my sex life or getting tampons lost inside of me, so I guess it’s only fair that I divulge all of my beauty secrets, no facades to be allowed. Let’…

Sephora Pulls Kat Von D’s “Celebutard” Lipstick

Kat Von D is a woman of many questionable decisions. Her latest poor life choice is not detrimental to her personal life, though: she had a lipstick in her Painted Love makeup line with Sephora called  “Celebutard.” Is it a very pretty pink-nude lipstick?  Yes. Is using the word “tard” grossly offensive to people with…

Lipstick Diss Leads To Face Slashing

Oh no you didn’t! A woman in Simsbury, Connecticut slashed another woman on the dance floor after she criticized her lipstick. Police say the victim had spoken to the slasher in the restaurant’s bathroom and told her that her lipstick “did not look good on her.” Oh, snap! So naturally, the lady on the receiving end…

Beauty Test Drive: Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour

I’m not trying to brag here, but I get a lot of free makeup. Like, a lot. Not only is it more than enough to feed my product addiction, previously believed to be insatiable, but at this point I have so much makeup I don’t even know what to do with it anymore. Seriously, I…
