Broadway Nails Nail Dress Stick-On Wraps

Friday, May 27th, 2011

Broadway Nails has a neat line of nail stickers that look like the intricate designs you would get at a salon. Since they are stickers, the great thing is you have no dry time and don’t have to worry about smudging your nails. However, you really need to take your time putting these on. If applied incorrectly, the stickers can get bubbles or folds which ruins the nailpolish effect. We tried the wild pink leopard print design and loved how unique it looked. Unfortunately, this only gave a day of perfect looking wear (to be fair; this was tested short, thin nails). Next time we will use the tip from the Broadway Nails website, which is to use a clear coat over the stickers for extended wear.

L’Oreal Studio Secrets The One Sweep Eye Shadow

Monday, May 16th, 2011

L’Oreal has taken the concept of ‘goof-proof’ to a different level with their new Studio Secrets The One Sweep Eye Shadow. If you’re not good with makeup or if you don’t have very much time in the morning this definitely works. We tried the 819 Natural for All Eyes palette and loved it. It’s very natural looking so it’s perfect for work or an interview. However, if you love a dramatic look, you may want to try their other shadow lines.

Ponds Evening Soothe Wet Cleansing Towelettes

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

Many of the makeup removing towlettes on the market claim to remove all makeup, and then when you try them out it’s like a bad April Fools prank. Ponds Evening Soothe Wet Cleansing Towelettes actually removed ALL of our makeup easily. We think that the cloth being textured has a lot to do with it; it lifts more makeup that way. It also passed the ultimate test, which is removing black eyeliner and mascara. If you’d like to give the Ponds Wet Cleansing Towlettes a try you can go to for a coupon. We tried the towlettes with chamomile and white tea (ingredients which are soothing to the skin) for evening, but they also have a morning towlette with citrus and cucumber

Max Factor Vivid Impact Highlighting Mascara

Monday, March 28th, 2011

The formulas for mascaras are always changing but the available colors remain the same. For a different look, Max Factor’s Vivid Impact Highlighting Mascara in shade 901 has a basic black coat, and then a pink shade to go on the top. The color is a lot more subtle than it looks in the tube, but it’s still a fun to have some pink on your lashes. What we liked the most about this formula is that it easily washed off at night so there weren’t any remnants of pink and black in the morning! You can’t buy Max Factor’s in stores in the United States, but you can buy the shade we tried at

L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Powder

Monday, March 21st, 2011

If you have oily skin the warmer weather is not such a good thing! To keep the shine at bay, L’Oreal’s Infallible Never Fail Powder promises to help ‘you stay shine free all day’ and promises 16 hour wear. We gave it the ultimate try out – a work out at the gym. After forty five minutes we still had a matte finish. It’s also nice that you can dampen the cosmetic sponge and use with the powder if you want a heavier, foundation-like coverage. However, since there are only 6 shades available we prefer to use it in a powder form (there is more leeway for color matching with powder). L’Oreal’s Infallible Never Fail Powder has an SPF 20 sunscreen.
