About a year ago, Clump Crusher was released, with much fanfare. Apparently, the internet unilaterally decided that it was the BEST MASCARA EVER OH MY GOD YOUR LASHES WILL BE LIKE FEMININE, CURVY TREE TRUNKS AHHHHH. Recently, with the ringing endorsement of everyone who has ever been online still rolling around in my head, I decided that maybe...
The entire BareMinerals True Romanic collection has a certain je ne sais quoi that makes you want to put flowers in your hair and ride naked on a horse (just kidding. That last idea is terrible. How about eating gelato while laying in bed instead?). In particular, the rose gold packaging has something really lovely about it. Swoon is the...
It's "Robyn is a perfume sample hoarder" time again! Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline Eau de Toilette. $65 for 1.3 fl oz ($50 per fl oz) This perfume smells like a really soft, generic, not-very enthusiastic lily. Perhaps it is a lily that has given up on life and is ready for a slow, rotting death. If this scent were being worn by a...
It can be tricky to determine what constitutes a "good deal" on any particular product. Although absurdly expensive and delightfully cheap products are easy to pick out, all the crap in the middle easily muddles together. Last month, I went through all of Sephora's eyeshadow palettes by price per ounce. This month, I'm doing blush. (I probably shouldn't keep doing...
I've had a couple of questions asking about product expiration. To talk about the issue, I'm going to frame my response largely around a Brazilian 2013 study by Giacomei, Dartora, Dienfethaeler, and Haas. The study, sexily* entitled, "Investigation on the use of expired make-up and microbiological contamination of mascaras", analyzed the habits of young women between the ages of...
If you describe something using the word "plush", I'm generally going to assume that you are talking about a stuffed bunny rabbit. In the case of the Maybelline Eyestudio Color Plush Silk Eyeshadows, though, they're just lovely, fine-milled colors. No fuzzy creatures involved. The packaging on these shadows is a little unfortunate, in my opinion. The lids feel very fragile and...
I have chosen not to subscribe to PopSugar Must Have up until now for a variety of reasons. First of all, it costs a whopping $39.99 a month. Second of all, I do check in about what PopSugar is sending out every so often, and sometimes I love it and sometimes I am not interested at all. It's a...
Vitamin E as a treatment for scar tissue is a tale as old as time. Sadly, it's no more based on reality than turning into a hairy monster because you were mean to a witch. Despite the damning evidence that you probably should not put Vitamin E on a scar, this myth continues to bounce around, particularly on...
I originally got a black Sumita eyeliner from Birchbox in May 2013. I was really impressed with the brand's creamy texture, which reminded me of the Urban Decay 24/7 pencil liners. However, in a world of near-infinite 'pretty darn good' black pencil liners, even the softest, most pigmented black doesn't get my heart rate pumping.Do you know what...
Chic Week (or "Spring Social", depending on whether you prefer rhyming or alliteration) kicked off for VIB Rouge today. For those of you who, like me, live prohibitively far from an actual Sephora, you're probably taking advantage of your 15% discount with some good, old-fashioned online shopping.
