Battle of the Beige In the past couple of weeks, I have acquired two new neutral palettes. I have been playing with both of them extensively for the past couple of days. It's time to put them head to head: Urban Decay Naked Basics vs. Coastal Scents Go Palette Cairo We are going to compare whether a higher or lower end palette is...
On My Face: Korres Pomegranate Discovery Kit If there is one thing that gives me joy in life, it is kits full of random different types of makeup and skincare goodies that I have never tried before. As much fun as it is to get one full size product, by the end of the tube/tin/container/whatnot, it's not longer as special...
Miscellanious Urban Decay Goodies: a Review I have purchased many an Urban Decay product in my life. Up until now, I have purchased those products at my friendly neighborhood Sephora. But no more. Ipsy gave me a handy dandy code to get free goodies with a purchase of Urban Decay on their website. I bought the new Naked Basics Palette, which...
Is it Important to Get "Three Free" and "Five Free" Nail Polish?: The Science I've had a few questions recently about two marketing buzzphrases in the nail polish business: "Three Free" and "Five Free". "Three Free" nail polish is advertised as nail polish without Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, and Formaldehyde. "Five Free" nail polish is advertised as nail polish without Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, and...
Julep "It Girl" Intro Box Julep Maven is the monthly subscription box for people who would rather look at their fingernails than their faces. Based out of Seattle, Washington, Julep sends either two nail polishes and one product or three nail polishes month for $19.99. To be honest, I probably wouldn't have signed up for Julep if not for the promo...
Is the Sephora Sun Safety Kit Worth It? Luckily (unluckily?) Sephora is a glitchy website. As a result, they accidentally revealed the contents of their 2016 Sun Safety kit ahead of schedule. Thus, you get some extra time to examine, research, and compute this bag's worthiness with no "OH MY GOD IT'S GOING TO SELL OUT ON ME" time crunch....
Beauty Bullshit: LaFace Laboratories PUR Purifying Facial Wash LaFace Laboratories PUR Purifying Facial Wash is an overwhelmingly expensive face wash that charges $48 a pop. Part of the reason it is so pricey is because of its supposed skincare benefits. According to Birchbox, "Copper encourages collagen production and skin regeneration, while gluconic acid and eliminates harmful micro-organisms and lemon peel oil cleanses...
The Too Faced Summer Eyes palette walks the perfect line between wearable and funky. These are not the kind of colors one might find in a neutral palette, but they aren't so off-the-wall that you can't wear them someplace nice. The packaging is a little bit tacky, but it definitely reminds me of summer, and the metal is solid and...
I Don't Know What Your Sexy Facebook Profile Picture Says About Your Competency, and Neither Does the University of Oregon "The Price of Sexy: Viewers’ Perceptions of a Sexualized Versus Nonsexualized Facebook Profile Photograph" coming out of Oregon State University is being published in Psychology of Popular Media Culture. A study called "The Price of Sexy"? Time for a disproportionate amount...
Review: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Medium Brown Those of you who lurk here frequently probably know that I don't have a lot of eyebrow hair. I have the kind of brows that make brow-grooming ladies say, "Well, I don't know what to do about all these weird bald spots…" Luckily, I know what to do about my weird bald...
