Apparently This Mascara Makes Your Eyelashes Fall Out

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 new…

Beauty Test Drive: This Is The Waterproof Mascara I Wore On My Wedding Day & It Totally Worked

A few days before I got married, one of my BFF's gifted me a shopping spree at Make Up For Ever. Lilit knew I was doing my own makeup for my wedding — hey, Kate Middleton did it! — so she wanted to help out. I got some gorgeous lipstick, foundation, green-tinted primer, and their…

Beauty Test Drive: Too Faced Better Than False Lashes Nylon Lash Extension System

I am not coordinated or motivated enough to wear false eyelashes, even though they always look totally amazing. I've tried putting them on once or twice, but thanks to having perma-shaky Hamburger Helper hands, I was never capable of getting them properly in place or sticking right. Plus? They're not the best…

Beauty Test Drive: Urban Decay Supercurl Curling Mascara

My lashes are stick straight and blonde, and I wish I was fine with that, but instead I have dedicated a significant portion of my time on earth to making them appear long, dark, and luxuriously curly. This pursuit has taken me to the brightly lit beauty counters of luxury cosmetic brands and the dark…

Beauty Test Drive: Benefit BADGal Lash Mascara

Mascara is a strange and mysterious product. Some of my friends' favorite brands flake and clump on my lashes, and some formulas I swear by have been horror shows for my friends. Even so, people tend to feel very strongly about their preferred mascara, and it's not uncommon for a beauty blogger to be kicked…

Eye Liner & Mascara Fit For A Queen

When it comes to playing up one of my features, I generally go for my eyes. In the days when I had acne and frizzy hair, and didn't care much for my thin upper lip, my eyes always struck me as my prettiest asset. Now I have much higher self-esteem (not to mention clearer ski…

Beauty Test Drive: L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes

Contrary to popular belief, all mascaras are not made equal. Case in point: Diorshow, one of the few cult favorite beauty products wherein literally everybody is in the cult. Beauty addicts world over, whether they apply makeup for a living or simply dabble in perfecting their own face, are well-informed of the magic that i…

Mascara That Stays Where It’s Supposed To

I'm sure everyone will empathize with my terrible, terrible problem of having such naturally long eyelashes. It's hard, I swear! Here's why: my eyelashes are constantly tapping against my upper cheeks and flaking. As a result, every mascara I've ever worn ends up giving me raccoon eyes by noon. I was almost about to give…

Kiss Premium Eyelashes Are Easy-To-Apply Falsies

I'm slightly obsessed with having long, luxurious eyelashes. Tell me a beauty treatment will give the appearance of curled and thick lashes, and I'll say, "When's my appointment?" I've had lash extensions that were so thick they prevented my natural lashes from growing. And I've also had my natural lashes permed. Unfortunately, the curl…

Beauty Test Drive: Givenchy PhenomenEyes Mascara

If we're being totally honest, the main reason we wanted to try out Givenchy's new mascara was the weird-looking brush. Check that thing out! It looks like a miniature mace. But covered in lash-lengthening liquid instead of metal spikes! Fun! Really, though, it's all kinds of fun. The smaller brush definitely takes a couple applicatio…

Women Continue Crying Over Men They Always Knew Were Gay

It's a clever campaign for a tear-proof mascara, but did anyone really not know that Ricky Martin is gay? If memory serves, those hips are almost as honest as Shakira's. [Fashion Indie]…

Do You Put Mascara On Your Lower Lashes?

What are your thoughts on mascara and lower lashes? We know that Amy Adams, above, is a fan of the stand-out makeup move—or maybe it's just that her makeup artist is, of course. Personally, I'm not a fan—it feels a little too overdone, like my lower lashes are in a look-at-me competition with my…

What Are Your Beauty Resolutions?

Normally, I'm not a resolution person—I make them, stick to them for, oh, two weeks and then I forget entirely about them. Fun times. For me, making resolutions usually makes me feel worse about my life—just one more reminder of stuff I haven't yet done. So, imagine my anxiety when reading about beauty resolutions over…

How To Get Agyness’ Batcrackers Crazy Lash Look

My my, the fashion stars certainly decided to shine bright at the recent ACE Awards.

Beauty Test Drive: Diorshow Iconic Mascara

Generally speaking, I'm happy with my mascara. Fiberwig and I have been through a lot together and it's remained pretty true, never smudging and leaving me raccoon-eyed when I'm going for smoky-eyed. But every once in a while, you've just got to try something new. When I received a bag of Dior goodie…

Product Review: Maybelline Great Lash Big Mascara

Besides the fact that Amelia and I have used Maybelline Great Lash mascara since, like, childbirth, I've gotta add that after almost a decade spent chatting up makeup artists and various beauty experts, it's hands (lashes?) down the preferred mascara of runway shows, photo shoots, red carpets and regular old everyday folks like…

If thickening and lengthening mascaras just aren't enough to make your lashes look all fluttery, a savior is on its way. A new drug called Latisse was recently approved and will soon be available with a prescription.

Crave: Lancôme’s Ôscillation Mascara

Because your lashes are jealous that they never got their own vibrator, this winter Lancôme will introduce Ôscillation, a new mascara that provides a 360-degree coat of product around each and every lash, courtesy of a vibrating brush that pulsates 7,000 times per minute (if only your boyfriend was that skilled….).
