I love trying new mascaras, and it’s even better if I can get them at drugstore prices. The big trend these days seems to be changing the wand, and L’Oreal’s Telescopic has done just that with its innovative flexible brush with plastic bristles.
I tried Telescopic in Blackest Black (because really, who buys any other color?) and the wand seemed to grab any stray lashes and coat them beautifully.

I’m always looking for a great facial cleanser, and Biore Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser does the trick in twenty different ways. It fights blemishes better than its Neutrogena or Clean and Clear counterparts, and the tingling icy feeling on your face is amazing. (As I’ve said before, I love products that feel like they’re doing something.) I pop this baby out right when I wake up in the morning, and it energizes and invigorates me.

I’m a hair abuser. I color, flat iron, blow dry, go swimming capless, and generally mortify my hair by living under the desert sun. So for me, a product like Redken Anti-Snap is a dream.

Pencil liner smudges and moves, while liquid requires an experienced hand and can look overdone. So when I saw L’Oreal’s Mistake-Proof Marker eyeliner, I had to try it. Who could resist an allegedly easy solution to our multitude of lining problems? After all, the package claims the flow is “controlled and continuous so you can easily follow the contour of the eye without skipping – no need to dip in the bottle”, and that it won’t smudge.

I admit: I have a sick obsession with Victoria’s Secret. However, I rarely make it to the beauty side of the store. But when the Very Sexy line debuted, I was intrigued. It seemed more professional and high-end than Vicky’s previous sort of impulse-buy-with-your-panties makeup.
I tried the Very Sexy Face Illuminator in Glow, and I was impressed. It’s a light shimmer creme that’s about the texture of concealer. A perfect highlighter that complements best spread high on the cheekbones, it’s also excellent on the bridge and tip of your nose, apples of your cheeks, or the browbone.
