The DMV in Anderson, South Carolina, forced a 16-year-old boy to take off his makeup in order to get his driver’s license picture taken because “he needs to look like a male,” according to an official.

Sometimes we receive beauty products that make me feel like a kid again. A metallic eye pencil, for example, reminds me of raiding my older sister’s makeup bag and creating Cyndi Lauper-inspired eyes.

Bare Minerals turned me onto powder foundations eight years ago. I loved the lightweight and medium coverage of their products. This year, Bare Minerals has launched a liquid foundation called BareSkin, an ultra thin formula that promises bright, more even toned skin. So … does it work? … More »
I always think of Covergirl and other drugstore makeup brands as totally trustworthy — they’ve been around for about a billion years, so what could go wrong? For Amy Schavolt of West Palm Beach, FL, things went so wrong with Covergirl’s Bombshell Volume mascara that her eyelashes fell out.
Schavolt told a local news station… More »

Guys! I feel like a real grown up of the lady persuasion. I finally, with the help of Maybelline’s idiot-proof Line Stiletto eyeliner, have mastered the cat eye. It wasn’t easy, but after months of practice, I can now line my eyes in the morning in one, well, two swoops, and it’s been eons since I stabbed myself in the… More »
I’m a big believer in the rituals of going out: having some time to yourself to shower, dress, primp, style, and psyche yourself up before barreling into the night (or day) can really set the tone for your excursion. Part of my ritual involves creating meticulous Spotify playlists for specific moods, occasions, or seasons. Sometimes… More »

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… More »

The clothes at last night’s fancy-pants Met Ball soiree were pretty and all, but I’m never going to be able to afford a custom-made, one-of-a-kind Lanvin dress.

Before I go into this Beauty Test Drive, I’d like to declare my fondness for Topshop Beauty products.
