Benefit’s “They’re Real” Line Grows

So I’m a huge fan of Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara, and They’re Real Push-up Liner, despite hearing/reading somewhere that the Push-Up Liner is one of their most-returned products because people don’t get it. I get it – nothing could be more convenient than having gel liner that comes with it’s own applicator, but liquid/gel liner […]

British beauty brand Soap and Glory comes out with two new cleansers this summer: Peaches and Cream Cleansing Milk, and Face Soap and Clarity.

Dior’s Cool New Brow Gel

If you’re into doing your brows (and really… most of us should be), you’ll know that if you’re in a hurry it can be a time suck to fill them in and then apply a wax or gel on top.  It’s the right way to do your brows, but you’re not thinking of that when you’re […]
