About This Quiz

The fun thing about, well, anything, is that there are so many myths surrounding it. For example, there's a myth that Napoleon Bonaparte was short. That turns out to not be true. In fact, he was 5' 7", which was tall for French men at the time. There's also a myth that bulls hate the color red which is also not true. Bulls just react to the fighter waving the flag at them. And there are myths about beauty. 

Have you ever heard that split ends could be glued back together? That rubbing your eyes causes wrinkles and crows feet? That hemorrhoid cream can reduce under-eye bags?   And even that you shouldn't wear sunscreen if your makeup has SPF? 

Some of these myths were created to stop bad habits or to encourage people to adopt other habits, but it's up to you to tell us where the truth lies. Are the myths in our quiz true, false or a mixture of both? It's time to test your beauty myth knowledge and see if you've been believing the wrong things all these years. 

Will you come out on top and knowing all the facts? Or have you been tricked by your hairdresser and the internet all your life?
