Wantable December 2016 Review Do you have a friend who just takes everything you say super literally? I feel like Wantable is the beauty subscription box version of that friend. They're very sensitive to your stated preferences, but I feel like they don't have a person sitting down and saying, "Okay, this is what they like, how can we create...
Review: Bourjois Faux and Fabulous Lady in Black False Lashes The first time I tried to use false eyelashes on my own*, it was not a success. I used globs of glue. I forgot to wait for it to get tacky. I glued my eyes together and ripped out several eyelashes trying to pry my lids apart. The second time I...
Procter & Gamble Receives Stern Poke Over Covergirl Mascara Ads Oh, lash inserts. When combined with photoshop, it seems like you don't even need the mascara in question to make a mascara ad. After innumerable mascara advertisements that look something like this... ...the National Advertising Division has decided that using false eyelashes is probably not the fairest way to sell a damn...
Review: Too Faced "Joy to the Girls" Eyeshadow Palette Joy to the Girls, pigmentation! It's almost a full ounce! All of humanity must prepare their vanities For this holiday color fest For this holiday color fest For this holiday, holiday color fest.  If halfhearted Christmas carol re-writes don't get you in the eyeshadow-buying spirit, there's not much more than I can do for you. Joy to the...
How Much Cheaper are Men's Fragrances? When I have window-shopped for perfumes online, I've noticed that fragrances marketed to men tend to be less pricey than their feminine counterparts. I was curious: 1. If this is a real trend and 2. If it is, how big the difference is. I collected 128 data points off the full-price men's and women's fragrance sections from...
Julep December 2016 Review I upgraded my Julep box again this month. Again, I would not have chosen to do so if I didn't have the Jules (points) to do it for free. I'm super happy that I did, though, since there is not a single thing in this box that I didn't like at all. (Typically, Julep would cost...
Review: LORAC Sweet Temptations Natural Eyeshadow Palette Set/LORAC Eye Candy Set I purchased the LORAC Eye Candy Set last year, but I purchased it right as it sold out. As a result, I never reviewed it. After all, why would y'all care about a product that is no longer available for purchase? However, it has come to my attention that...
Review: My Pretty Zombie "Drugs Like Me" Blushes in Benzodiazepine, Fluoxetine, and MDMA I've previously mentioned that although indie cosmetics companies do cater to nerds, they tend to cater to a different breed of a nerd, releasing fandom-type collections and the like. I'd be more prone to swooning over historical or scientific-themed collections. My Pretty Zombie has me covered on...
Is Revlon Filled With Cancer-Causing Crap? (Hint: No.) Let's all give a huge, collective eye-roll to the Breast Cancer Fund, the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, and UltraViolet. Ready? These advocacy groups have targeted Revlon, demanding that the cosmetics company stop producing "makeup laced with cancer-causing chemicals". Their list of suspects includes chemicals that are not used by Revlon and other chemicals...
Review: Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner Gel eyeliner is a gateway drug. It's the perfect transition from wobbly, "what-the-fuck-am-I-doing" pencil liner to the smooth, crisp lines you usually associated with liquid liner. In comparison to liquid eyeliner, gel products are more forgiving and maneuverable. Maybelline gel liners are the perfect item to push wafflers over the makeup addict...
