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,…

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,…

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…

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…

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: Benefit Bigger Than BB Big Easy Foundation

Jessica and I are the office powder foundation enthusiasts, so when she received Benefit’s Bigger Than BB Big Easy Liquid-to-Powder foundation she quickly handed me a sample.  Let me start by stating, I haven’t worn liquid foundation regularly in over eight years. Just the idea of liquid foundatio…

Beauty Test Drive: S.W. Basics Reusable Eco Cotton Rounds

The other day, I was talking to my friend Lauren about ethical fashion and being more conscious consumers (because we're exactly the kind of nerds who can talk about this topic for hours), and she said something that totally resonated with me: "Once you commit to being a more ethical consumer, it spill…

Beauty Test Drive: LORAC’s Take A Brow Kit

Some women never leave the house without lipstick. I never leave the house without eyebrows. Many assumed my eyebrows are so sparse because of over-plucking, but in reality they just never grew in.  This is it. Some women (like Whoopi Goldberg) simply go without and others (like Miley Cyrus) conceal them. I like to fill…
