Bite Beauty Amaretto & Calvados Power Move Lip Crayons Reviews & Swatches

Calvados Bite Beauty Calvados Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, light-medium, rosy brown with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and thin without being clingy with a touch of tackiness that kept a creamier, more emollient formula in place for longer. It had rich color payoff that applied evenly in a single stroke and was quite forgiving, though there ...

NARS Orgasm X Blush Review & Swatches

Orgasm X NARS Orgasm X Powder Blush ($30.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark pink-coral base with fine, golden shimmer throughout that gave it a more luminous finish. It was significantly warmer, deeper, and had a smoother sheen compared to the original Orgasm blush. The consistency felt slightly drier to the touch, almost papery (and I mean that in a neutral way), but it was incredibly easy to pick up with a brush–withou...

How do you figure out color combinations to wear on your eyes?

Most of the time, I start with a palette since most of the eyeshadow-related releases are in palette form, so I start there. For larger palettes, I like to create two looks and do my best to showcase different looks, so I’ll try to divide the shades into two color schemes. For brighter pops of... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Tom Ford Sous Le Sable Eye Color Quad Review & Swatches

Sous Le Sable Tom Ford Beauty Sous Le Sable Eye Color Quad ($88.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new, lighter-leaning neutral quad that veered a bit rosier overall. Three of the four shades were matte, while one was a softer shimmer, especially applied and blended out. For someone who prefers a sheer wash of color, perhaps this would work for that purpose, but for someone who wants it to perform well for a myriad of looks and uses, it’ll unde...

Tom Ford De La Creme Eye Color Quad Review & Swatches

De La Creme Tom Ford Beauty De La Creme Eye Color Quad ($88.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new, warm-toned neutral quad that includes two shimmer shades and two matte shades. The shimmers were disappointing–sheer, prone to fading, didn’t sit as well on bare skin–while the two mattes were lovely as they had good pigmentation and blended out well. Obviously, at this price point, you have to love the performance and look of every single shade...

MAC Totally Synced Glow Play Blush Review & Swatches

Totally Synched MAC Totally Synced Glow Play Blush ($30.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a soft, bubblegum pink with subtle, cool undertones and a satin sheen. It had sheer, buildable coverage (up to medium) when applied with a brush and semi-sheer, buildable coverage (up to medium) when applied with fingertips. The blush had a smooth, lightly emollient texture that wasn’t wet to the touch but felt creamier than a true powder formula would. ...

Can You Tell Me How to Get More Innovation Revenue?

Why Diversity in The Workforce Fuels Growth At a young age, we all embraced an unlikely iconic duo of a bird and a snuffleupagus without questioning their collaboration. Elmo’s age and species are up for debate, but his contribution to our emotional development as human beings would be hard to dispute. We idolized an entire street of monsters and grouches and adults and kids that lived in harmony, and maybe some of us begged our parents to move there. When you peek your head up from your cubic...

Limone di Sicilia – Lemon Curd on Ice

I never really understood why the Aerin brand came to be, other than for vanity. From a segmentation point of view, it adds little to the canon. Sitting somewhere between Jo Malone London, Annick Goutal, and Terry de Gunzberg, the aesthetics possess a Cath Kidston veneer and an Anthropologie sensibility.  That said, the scents are good – simple, successful and pleasant. New to 2019, Limone di S... Read full article: Limone di Sicilia – Lemon Curd on Ice from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes Ma...

A Beginner's Guide to the Best of Fenty Beauty

Unless you've been living in a dark, dank cave for the past few years, you've undoubtedly heard about Fenty Beauty. Since Rihanna launched her beauty brand in 2017, it's become *the* makeup collection to know, discuss, hashtag, covet, hoard . . . you get the picture. It's difficult to overstate how much Fenty Beauty has changed the makeup landscape in just two and a half years.

The 21 Best Body Scrubs at Sephora You Never Knew You Always Needed

Winter can really do a number on your skin, especially if you spend a significant amount of time in a climate where you're exposed to cold, dry air. But even if you happen to live somewhere with milder temperatures (or if most of your body is already tucked under layers of clothing), it doesn't guarantee you're safe from flakiness. After all, your body is actually shedding a whole layer of outer skin every couple weeks, no matter where you live. When you properly exfoliate, you're just helping t...

The silk shirt Charles I of England wore to have his head chopped off

The Museum of London will soon publicly display Charles I's execution vest for the first time. The doomed king wore the silk garment to the chopping block after his defeat in the English Civil War of the 17th century; 30 January is the 371st anniversary of his death at the Banqueting House on Whitehall. The stains are said to be vomit, not blood.

How to Level Up Your Sorry Excuse for Nachos

Born and raised in Wisconsin, my wife was predestined to obsess over all things cheese and sour cream. It runs in her genes, as it does for most of those from the Midwest. While we were dating, we’d often “share” one of our favorite guilty pleasures on our favorite game days and outings: a spread of nachos, wings, and domestic light beers. That’s when I first uncovered my wife’s poor nacho etiquette. You see, when nachos are constructed in the common, poorly-considered set-up in which all topp...

Lucy Hale Has a Message For Men Who Offer Unsolicited Opinions on Her Hair and Makeup

Lucy Hale hasn't looked back since drastically cutting her long hair into a bob five years ago. "It was the most liberating thing I've ever done," the actress and Katy Keene star recently said in an interview for the March 2020 issue of Cosmopolitan. Though she was pleased with her decision, and she's cut her hair even shorter since, Hale said men often offer their unsolicited thoughts on her hair length. "I couldn't tell you the amount of times when guys were like, 'You should grow your hair ...

2020’s Biggest Brow Trends Are Here - and There’s Something For Everyone

The year was 2016: the Instagram brow was thriving, cream contour tutorials were sweeping YouTube, and most of us had no less than five liquid lipsticks in every bag we owned. It was an interesting time in beauty to say the least. Fast forward to 2020 and things look a whole lot different - and undoubtedly more minimal - especially when it comes to trending eyebrows styles. There aren't many ways to sculpt, flick, and fill our brows that we haven't seen or tried ourselves yet. That being said, t...

Call, Raise, or Fold

Let me share one of my favorite techniques for simplifying complicated decisions. There’s a popular form of poker called Texas Hold’em, and in this game (as well as in many other poker variants), you just really just have three possible decisions on each turn: call, raise, or fold. So you can call – or match – the current bet. You can raise – or increase – the current bet. Or you can fold by quitting the hand. Note that I’m simplifying this a bit more by considering checking to be a for...

I'm a Veteran Beauty Editor, and the New Nars Afterglow Collection Blew My Mind

I make it no secret that I'm a massive Nars Cosmetics fan. And honestly, I didn't realize how massive a fan I was until I moved my from New York to London last Summer. It was whilst packing up my entire life - which after 11 years as a beauty editor included a whole lot of makeup that needed to be drastically cut down - that I realized that most of my can't-live-without-cosmetics that I wanted - no needed - to bring to Britain were from Nars. Two of those products were the Wanted Eye Shadow Pale...
