A study by researchers in Bangor University and Aberdeen University surveyed 44 students and reported that subjects found women with makeup less attractive than the same women without makeup.

Beauty Test Drive: Topshop Magic Eyeliner

Every time someone takes a photo of me, I hear my mother’s voice saying, “Open your eyes!” You see, in my family, I have the smallest eyes. My mother and sisters all have round faces and Bambi like brown eyes.  Over the years I have learned to fake the wide eye look with dramatic eyeliner…

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…

Frisky Q&A: Nick Verreos From “Project Runway Under The Gun” Wants Your Boyfriend To Wear Makeup

Once upon a time long ago in a land far away … well, okay, it was 2005 on Bravo … there was the world’s most friendly and energetic designer, Nick Verreos. Although he was eliminated on episode 10 (boo), his involvement on the show shot his line,  Nikolaki, co-designed with his partner David Paul, to stardom…

Beauty Test Drive: LORAC Touch-Up To Go Concealer/Foundation Pen

As a lady with more than a little redness on her face, concealer is one of my must-have beauty products. Concealers come in many forms, like sticks, tubes, and pots, but my particular favorite is a pen or wand. With a foundation wand, you can apply it directly onto your skin and pat it dow…

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 Test Drive: Hard Candy’s Take Me Out Liner

Colored eyeliner is one of those beauty products I flirt with but rarely actually attempt. In fact, I usually wimp out even when it comes to colored shadow. That said, it seems like such an easy way to mix up your makeup routine without too much effort, so I was willing to give it a…

Beauty Test Drive: Laura Mercier Nail Lacquer

Like most women, I have 312 bottles of nail polish knocking around my apartment at any given moment. When a package of spring beauty products from Laura Mercier arrived at the office, I had mixed emotions when Sophie handed me a bright lavender nail polish called Reckless: Yay, pretty, expensive nail polish!!!!! and also Oh, I already

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 Test Drive: Essie Fill The Gap Treatment For Nail Ridges

As I get older, the ridges on my nails become more and more noticeable. Although vertical nail ridges are totally harmless, they can make at home manicures frustrating. Filing them down can weaken nails and painting over them can lead to a streaky manicure. After a long search, I have finally found a solution I…

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: Sonia Kashuk’s Limited Edition Make-A-Face Brush Set

Have you ever gone into a Sephora and thought, What the hell is THAT brush for?  Why are there 50 different brushes available when I only use five or six products on my face? I have this internal conversation all the time. I am compelled to hold, caress and sometimes buy several brushes without ever…
