Chanel Blurry Grey (322) Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Blurry Grey (322) Chanel Blurry Grey (322) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($62.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, seemingly permanent (it’s not listed as limited edition on the brand’s website) quad featuring cooler, smokier neutrals with two mattes and two more shimmery shades. I found that the longevity was a little shy of average, so I’d encourage those interested to be sure to use primer underneath to minimize the chance of fading, but the eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, a...

Sephora Dare to Be & Rise Above Rouge Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

Dare to Be (28) Sephora Dare to Be (28) Rouge Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a light, bubblegum pink with cool, bluish undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had medium to semi-opaque color coverage that didn’t build up well due to the more emollient consistency that became quite slippery when built up. The texture was lightweight, creamy, and comfortable to apply and to wear, but I found that this shade had enough slip that it did sink into my lip lines more noticeably. It lasted...

rms beauty Madeira Bronzer Luminizing Powder Review & Swatches

Madeira Bronzer rms beauty Madeira Bronzer Luminizing Powder ($38.00 for 0.52 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a golden sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, creamy consistency that was soft without being too firmly pressed in the pan, yet it wasn’t powdery or thin either. The powder applied evenly to my skin and “melted” as I buffed and blended out the product. It had a noticeable sheen but wasn’t overly shimmery, so it didn’t emphasize my skin’s t...

Why Giving Your Employees Flexibility Improves Morale and Productivity

Failure or Opportunity: You Get to Choose

It’s inevitable that when we embark on ambitious endeavors, there will be setbacks. Goal setting is designed to get us farther along the road toward success. Without clearly defined goals, many of us would meander through our days and only accomplish a fraction of the things we’re capable of. But being vulnerable enough to even have such lofty ideas as goals also increases the potential for failure. The catch is this — If we never see failure, it’s difficult to fully appreciate our successes...

8 Beauty Lessons We Learned From the Motherly Figures in Our Lives

There are a lot of lessons our moms, grandmas, step moms, and motherly figures teach us in life. They might teach us to cook, navigate relationships, or put the laundry out on the line without causing creases (this is still a work in progress for me). Aside from the basics of life, these women are usually the people that also introduce us to the world of beauty. When it comes to growing up and discovering beauty, the lessons we're taught are special and often shape how we approach it. From fou...
