Beauty Test Drive: Eyelure Katy Perry Lashes In Lovely Lolita

Beauty Test Drive: Eyelure Katy Perry Lashes In Lovely Lolita

Who doesn’t love a little glam? I certainly do. So when I was given the opportunity to Beauty Test Drive a pair of Eyelure False Lashes, I wasn’t going to pass it up. There were hundreds of pairs to choose from (including these dramatic falsies which Sophie tried out!), but I was immediately drawn to Katy Perry’s collection since she’s one of the fiercest females in the game. I opted to try out her Lovely Lolita lashes, a subtle but voluminous pair to give my peepers some pop. Keep reading »

Color-Changing Henna Lipstick Is So Much Fun

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 a Moroccan product or that it includes henna in it. What the lipstick does likely have in it is Red 27, which was a major ingredient in the short-lived “mood lipstick” trend of the ’80s (apparently, color-changing lipstick has been around for about a billion years and my generation is late to the game). The moment the stuff hits your lips, the Red 27 allows it to change from green to a lovely reddish-pink hue. The coolest part is that it shows up as a different color on everyone — the lipstick reacts to the acidity and temperature of your lips, creating a slightly different shade on everyone who uses it. Because your body chemistry varies, you could find yourself wearing a different color from one day to the next. Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Contouring Is Wizardry (But It Only Sort Of Worked On Me)

How To Contour

Kim Kardashian’s face is a masterful work of art. Her cheekbones are always high and tight and the way the light plays off the ridges is mesmerizing. I realize that it is insane to want to look like a celebrity that has a retinue of makeup artists and humans to blot her every shiny spot away, but hey, we all have unattainable goals. Thanks to the magic of the Internet, and the brilliant minds of hundreds of YouTube beauty vloggers, Kim’s magic look can be mine. Supposedly. Keep reading »

Shopping Strategy: How To Shop A Major Sale Without Losing It

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is happening right now and, like many major sales, the good stuff goes fast. In particular, anything that says limited edition, exclusive, or free gift with purchase.  The first area to be ransacked is the beauty department. Ever wonder how some women have 20 free makeup pouches and a never-ending supply of brand name makeup remover? It’s because they know what they want and how to get it. Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask Champagne

Beauty Test Drive: Bite Beauty Agave Nectar 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 no idea what that actually was, but couldn’t wait to give it a good old Beauty Test Drive. After all, I’ve given Bite’s products a try before and love them! Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Marc Jacobs Neutral Nail Polish

Beauty Test Drive Marc Jacobs Neutral Nail Polish

The neutral nail color trend, AKA mannequin hands, is returning this fall. Marc Jacobs’ Enamored Hi-Shine Lacquer in 9 to 5 is part of Marc’s exclusive runway nail polish collection and promises opaque coverage and high shine. Last weekend, I attended a wedding and didn’t want my nail polish to compete with my brightly-colored, graphic-patterned dress, so I opted to Beauty Test Drive this sophisticated shade. Let’s see how it turned out… Keep reading »
