Tom Ford Ondine, Sterling, Mario Boys Lip Colors Reviews & Swatches

Ondine Tom Ford Beauty Ondine Lips & Boys Soft Matte Lip Color ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark coral-orange with strong, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had sheer to semi-sheer pigmentation in a single pass, which was buildable to medium coverage.

What do you like about Charlotte Tilbury? What don’t you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Charlotte Tilbury I don’t find myself all that drawn to Charlotte Tilbury products off the bat; like I don’t hear about a new release and get particularly excited, but some of my very favorite products are by Charlotte Tilbury (Hollywood Flawless Filter, Filmstar Bronze & Glow, Hollywood Light Wands). The brand has a tendency to release everything in the same wheelhouse, though, and I think they could do a substantially better job releasing colo...

5 Hard Questions that Can Save a Life (and Spare Some Pain)

We waste our lives waiting for ideal paths to appear in front of us. But they never do. Because we forget that paths are made by walking, not waiting. There’s nothing more disheartening than a perfectly healthy, reasonably affluent human being with the whole world in her hands who’s chronically unhappy and unproductive. There’s really no excuse for it either, yet Marc and I see this phenomenon unfolding every single day—people who choose to be stuck in misery and refuse to admit it. This mind...

The Kosas 10 Second Eye Shadow Made Me Completely Rethink Liquid Shadow

Ordinarily, I'm not a huge fan of liquid eye shadows. I find that many of them crease, are too sheer, and flake off once dry. That's why I was surprised to find a collection I actually want to add to my already-packed daily makeup bag. When the Kosas 10 Second Eyeshadow ($28) first crossed my desk in the shades Element, Waterfall, and Fahrenheit, I was intrigued by the watery texture and "shake well" instructions on the frosted tube. The unique consistency was enough to convince me to give the c...

Knowing Your Hair Porosity Is the Key to Healthy Hair - Here's How to Find Yours

Finding the right way to nourish your hair can be a quite the journey, especially if you're a fellow natural who can't quite seem to figure out which products will keep your curls in their best shape. If your hair sometimes suffers from dryness, breakage, and/or frizziness, and no product or treatment you've pumped into it seems to be helping, there's a chance you might be missing a pretty big step, which is determining your hair's porosity level. In case you're not sure what that is, we talke...

The Spring 2020 shows have come and gone, and in their wake are a whole lot of beauty trends to get inspired by. And here's the thing: you don't need to wait six months to start playing around with the hair and makeup looks we saw on the runways.

The "Side Tip" Nail Art Trend May Be Your Next Go-To If You're Over the French Manicure

New Skincare and Skincare Gift Sets Available Now at Ulta

I find that more and more people that read my blog have started concentrating more on their skincare.

I always like when the Holiday season rolls around because it means a lot of different skincare sets launch making it easy to try new products at a fraction of the cost. I’ve selected some new sk...

Margot Robbie Just Wore This Power Color on Her Nails, and It Was Fierce

Saying something is "the new black" typically means something is newly fashionable. While actress Margot Robbie is capable of making most beauty decisions look fierce, she has chosen to go with a nail color that is, at its core, powerful. Robbie recently debuted a glossy black manicure, which was painted on short nails by her go-to manicurist Tom Bachik. As if the nail color wasn't statement-making enough, she paired her look with a white power suit. Nail expert and founder of her eponymous bra...

Jack Whitehall and Dwayne Johnson Disney has just dropped the first trailer for Jungle Cruise, the latest cinematic incarnation of one of its iconic theme park rides. The film will also feature an out-gay character in a supporting role…though he barely appears in the first trailer.
