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

Watch Jessica Try It!

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 down with the applicator yourself — that way, you never have to touch your face with your dirty fingers. (Do I really need to remind you that touching your face is BAD for your skin?) Plus, it’s super easy to carry in your purse for touchups throughout your day. LORAC clearly had this in mind with their new Touch-Up To Go Concealer/Foundation Pen, which I’m happy to report is part of my daily beauty routine now. Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: The Benefit Brow Treatment

Benefit Brow Bar Test Drive

Jessica and I were invited to the Benefit Boutique in Soho to meet with “Project Runway” mentor Nick Verreos, “Under The Gunn” winner Oscar Garcia-Lopez, and Benefit global beauty authority Annie Ford Danielson. Annie unveiled the new Benefit apron designed by Oscar as we all discussed the little things that can transform how a woman feels about herself. When asked, I said that I feel like I look my best with defined eyebrows. Let me tell you, the beauty experts at Benefit take eyebrows very seriously. When they offered a full service brow treatment, I jumped at the chance to have a beautician tend to these caterpillars. Keep reading »

Lipppppppppsticks!!!!!

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 of roses. Obviously, I needed to test them all out one by one.

Makeup Guru Bobbi Brown To Head Yahoo Beauty — Um, Is That Even Remotely Ethical?

bobbi brown makeup

Bobbi Brown, the world-renowned makeup artist behind Bobbi Brown cosmetics, announced today that she is joining Yahoo as the new editor-in-chief of Yahoo Beauty. In addition to “curat[ing] smart, strong content that will teach women how to be their best self,” she’ll continue her duties as the CCO at Bobbi Brown.

I’m an enormous Bobbi Brown fan, both the brand and the person. I saw her speak on a panel a few years ago and immediately admired how she juggles being the head of her own company and mother. She’s a rad feminist who supports causes I believe in and I really respect the fact that she lives in and raises her kids in suburban New Jersey instead of NYC or LA. And her products are awesome; I’ve got both her concealer and her lipstick in my purse right now.

That being said, I have enormous doubts about the ethics of the head of a beauty company becoming the editor-in-chief of a beauty blog on Yahoo. The role isn’t “advisor.” It’s not even “contributing editor.” It’s editor-in-chief. Please tell me how is this not just a huge commercial for Bobbi Brown’s makeup company?  Keep reading »
