Beauty Test Lab: A Hair Powder That Promises To Do It All

Our lack of motivation when it comes to our beauty routines is no great secret, at this point. We'll openly admit it: We. Are. Lazy. That's why we're perpetually on the hunt for products that do it all, or perhaps more accurately, fake it all.
So, obviously, when the new Shu Uemura Volume Maker Hair Powder showed up at the offiice, a literal fight broke out over who got to try it. In the end, global editor Connie prevailed. And, since she can't be bothered with blowing out her hair (her words, not ours) we couldn't wait to see if a product that promised to add volume, instant lift and add days to a blowout would get the Connie seal of approval.
