We recommend a lot of rad products, clothing designers, and crave-able items on The Frisky. Occasionally, however, we discover that an item was not worthy of our desire or endorsement and we want to take it back. After finally sampling a few of these goods ourselves, we’re totally not craving:
1. Sally Hansen Nail Pen: I finally tried this bad boy and discovered two things: A) A nail PEN is a really good idea and definitely makes polish application easier, but B) the actual polish colors available are heinous (I made the mistake of going for a iridescent opal which was trés old lady), they apply very thin and watery, and they dry extremely matte.

We’ve written about this line before, but Sunday it’s finally here! We have high hopes for this Target collection, despite recent disappointments from Rogan and Jovovich Hawk, mainly because of a few standout items. The colorblock tie dress looks chic for day and night, while the jeweled woven top is an affordable copy of a Chai high-end blouse. Run don’t walk! [$39.99 and $29.99, Target.com] Keep reading »
Ooooh our fingers are already itching to do some online shopping! Nylon revealed some of the looks from Richard Chai’s upcoming collection for Target and we are foaming at the mouth. Seriously, this stuff better not be disappointing in person like Rogan was. Images of all the hot looks, available in August, after the jump, with my commentary. [Nylon] Keep reading »
This Sunday, Rogan’s GO International line hits Target stores. But before you decide you’re going to skip going out on Saturday so you can be first in line on Sunday morning, check out a few of the looks. It seems that Rogan would like to help bring animal prints to the masses. Doesn’t Heidi Montag have that covered? (That being said, I may have to purchase at least one of the plaid numbers. Plaid is my black.) Keep reading »
We didn’t know anything about bras until we got properly fitted. Before that, we had really only ever bought them from places like Kmart, Target, and Filene’s Basement, where no one cares whether you buy the wrong size. And even though we love the lacy bras we bought, we may have been onto something by going for cheap bras (at least for everyday wear). Consumer Reports tested three bras — La Perla Vintage ($127), Victoria’s Secret Ipex Demi ($45), and Gilligan & O’Malley Padded Demi ($11) — and found the $11 bra, available at Target, was the best buy. Not only does it have better cup molding than the Victoria’s Secret bra, but it didn’t pinch or poke and held up better in the wash. [Consumer Reports] Keep reading »
Target is awesome, and not just because they have cheap, cute clothes designed by normally-out-of-our-price-range big names like Jovovich-Hawk and Luella Bartley. They also rule because they don’t screw over their employees in the most evil way possible. Wal-Mart, which, frankly, has some of the worst clothing you could possible buy at a megastore, won a suit against a former employee for $470,000. For what, you may ask? The awful truth, after the jump. Keep reading »
Target’s GO International lines by the likes of Luella Bartley, Erin Fetherston, Jovovich-Hawk, etc. sold out before I could get my hands on anything good. I’m going to cross my fingers that that doesn’t happen when this line arrives in mid-April. Unlike the other GO incarnations, this one was created by designers at Target rather than an outside collaborator. But don’t worry, label whores, Target’s not ditching big names. The GO lines designed in-house will be sold in between the designer collections.
