The Battle Of The Gold Mascaras…

The Battle Of The Gold Mascaras…

  If we combined every Magpies’ makeup bags together, we could easily start our own Sephora franchise. And since we always review the newest and coolest makeup we come across, this is really good for those of you who don’t like wasting money on mediocre products like the crew of makeup addicts here does. On a recent rainy afternoon, […]

They’re Real – We Hope It’s The Real Deal!

They’re Real – We Hope It’s The Real Deal!

Since we Magpies are always on the lookout for the perfect jet black mascara that makes our lashes look, in the words of Lady Gaga, like we were born this way, we were very intrigued when we heard about Benefit’s brand new “They’re Real” mascara. The mega brush is supposed to lengthen and separate lashes while adding […]

Clinique Went to Great Lengths to Make A Great Lengthening Mascara

Clinique Went to Great Lengths to Make A Great Lengthening Mascara

It’s brand new, it’s oddly-shaped, and looks like it will never work…but it is really effective! Clinique has introduced “High Lengths” – a newly formulated, lengthening mascara that takes your lashes to new heights…or lengths! We Magpies were a bit skeptical about trying this mascara. So we decided to have one of the Magpies with the shortest lashes […]

Those Oldies but Goodies

Those Oldies but Goodies

We Magpies are constantly on the hunt for the latest and newest “it” beauty products. But sometimes in our collection (well, mess) of makeup, we’ll stumble upon something that we once loved but somehow forgot about. Here are some products we’ve rediscovered lately – that we’re falling in love with all over again. 1) Stila […]

Chanel Taupe Gris is Grrrreat

Chanel Taupe Gris is Grrrreat

We Magpies have been loyal Chanel fans since… well, forever, as evidenced here and here. There’s nothing more New York (or Paris!) classic chic than the black quilted Chanel bag. But if you want something a little more affordable, and still Chanel…you’ve got to check out the newest eyeshadow included in their fall makeup collection – specifically, the smokey grey color, Taupe […]

The Best Fiber Mascara – Made In Japan!

The Best Fiber Mascara – Made In Japan!

Our favorite cameras, hair straighteners, take-out food, and cars (well, we haven’t had any problems with our brakes)… and now this! It would take an  innovative, high-tech Japanese beauty company to figure out a way to get all those tiny fibers in mascara to go on lashes in the right direction. We’ve tried many mascaras that claim to have fibers to lengthen […]

Put On An SPF-Kissed Face!

Put On An SPF-Kissed Face!

Summer’s in full swing, and for us Magpies, that means we are too – from the beach to the pool – and outdoor parties in between. So we wanted to share some products with you that have been giving us our summer glow on the go – complete with SPF. These products are perfect for day or night […]

Eat, Pray, Love The Merchandise!

Eat, Pray, Love The Merchandise!

Eat, Pray, Love, the movie taken from Elizabeth Gilbert’s best selling memoir of self-discovery following the breakup of her marriage, has not even opened yet (it’s premiering Friday, August 13,2010 – can’t wait!) and already the movie-inspired merchandise is all over the place!  Usually the crew at Harriet Magpie is not impressed with commercial type merchandise, but the items […]

Dior’s Extase Mascara – Don’t Leave Home Without It!

Dior’s Extase Mascara – Don’t Leave Home Without It!

The crew at Harriet Magpie is forever looking for that magic mascara that will lengthen and volumize our lashes without the clumping and hassle. We’ve tried every mascara on the market – and we seem to always go back to Dior as the gold standard for mascaras. So it’s not surprising that we were willing to shell […]

Alice+Olivia for Mac – Quite A Nice Pact!

Alice+Olivia for Mac – Quite A Nice Pact!

You’ve got to hand it to Mac. Just when you think that there couldn’t possibly be another new lip color, great nail product, or hip promotion left to do…they come up with this! Alice+ Olivia ( which is definitely one of our top fave fashion companies out there) and its creator, Stacy Bendet, teamed up with Mac to create a […]

Oh Go Get O-Bronze!

Oh Go Get O-Bronze!

Summer is here, and so is the incredible selection of sunscreens to protect you from those dangerous suntans. But just because too much sun is bad for your skin, too little color still makes you look washed out when wearing all the pretty, light-colored tees. So what’s a politically and dermatologically correct girl do when she wants to look […]

It’s Easy Going Green-with Mac Makeup!

It’s Easy Going Green-with Mac Makeup!

If you told us Magpies that our new fave makeup color this summer would be green, we would have died laughing! But now, we must confess, green seems to be our new go-to color when we want a little sparkle and oomph in our look without looking like we’ve joined a circus! Since green is a neutralizing color to […]

Grow Luscious by FabuLash Mascara Grows Lashes? Revlon’s Nose Must Be Growing!

We Magpies are forever searching for that perfect mascara. When we came upon this “miracle” product – Revlon’s Fabulash Luscious Grow Mascara in of all places…Duane Reade (hmm…maybe we should’ve thought twice about it…), and it promised to not only make our lashes lush and healthy, but also grow them, we thought OMG!, this is one product […]

Estee Lauder New Double Wear Stay-In-Place Eye Pencil…If Only Our Relationships Could Last As Long!

Estee Lauder New Double Wear Stay-In-Place Eye Pencil…If Only Our Relationships Could Last As Long!

Like the guys we go out with, there isn’t much we expect from our makeup.  We expect to feel and look better with it than without it. We hope that if we take a chance with it, it’s not going to disappear before the night is over. It should show its true colors right from […]

Topshop Makeup Launch – How Positively Smashing!

Topshop Makeup Launch – How Positively Smashing!

How ironic that we Magpies just returned from London (after reporting on Topshop’s new personal shopping service) and today New York’s Topshop just launched their much anticipated (well, much anticipated if you’re British) cosmetics line! Why all the excitement? Well, its Core Line of Essentials (that’s British for make-up line) features 97 products and its […]
