Charlotte Tilbury The Rebel Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches (2020)

The Rebel (2020) Charlotte Tilbury The Rebel (2020) Eyeshadow Quad ($53.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a new, permanent quad that replaces the original “The Rebel” quad (totally different color story!). The formula was more comparable to the recent 12-pan palettes and a nice upgrade from the original quad formula. The shimmers were smoother, creamier, and richer overall with better coverage and adherence. All four shades were pigmented, blen...

Bite Beauty Glace & Nonino Power Move Lip Crayons Reviews & Swatches

Glace Bite Beauty Glace Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark mauve with warmer undertones and a satin finish. It had rich pigmentation that delivered an even layer of product in a single, fluid stroke. The texture was lightweight, creamy without being overly slippery, and thin (but not clingy), so it adhered well but was flattering on as it didn’t catch on imperfections. It lasted nicel...

What draws you into a pre-made eyeshadow palette?

The color story and how its arranged; sometimes there can be a good color story buried in the palette, but if it isn’t arranged right, it can be hard to see. I love seeing a palette where there are instantly several looks I can see creating from the palette. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Sunday Firesides: Control = Courage

During both World Wars, Lord Moran, a physician who served as a medical officer during the first and Winston Churchill’s personal doctor during the second, studied the nature of courage. One of the interesting observations he made was that aboard military aircraft, the navigator experienced greater nerves than the pilot. The reason for this, Moran surmised, was that the pilot had more to do: “In the presence of danger man often finds salvation in action . . . to stagnate in mind or body, is to...

5 Apparel Brands You Should Know

Even the most diehard fashionistas out there can become a little jaded when they are faced with the same rotation of apparel brands season after season. Sometimes, it feels like all brands are blending together, each just rehashing what their predecessor has done. (Hello Gap, we see you there!) But, once in a while, you will find a new fashion label that really catches your eye. These moments always remind me why I got into fashion in the first place: to express myself and have fun doin...

How Do I Heal My Marriage from My Infidelity?

From a man in Peru: I proposed an open relationship to my wife for years (from the very start of our relationship) and she usually said no, was sometimes ambivalent or was sometimes inclined to say yes. We never got around to agreeing on the matter. We got married just last year after a long relationship of 13 years and I branched out of our relationship before the wedding, having five one-night stands. After our honeymoon, I confessed to one of the infidelities and she reacted negatively, but n...

Le Pavillon D'Or: a Treatise on Beauty

It is impossible to forget the moment you first familiarize yourself with the work of a perfumer who will later become one of your favorites. I still remember how I tried Parfums Dusita for the first time and how astounded I was with Melodie de l’Amour and Oudh Infini. Melodie de l’Amour was love from the first sniff for me.

“I’m a great pitcher” Josh Thomas tells us ‘Everything’s Gonna Be OK’ with his new show on gay life

EVERYTHING’S GONNA BE OKAY – Josh Thomas (Freeform/Tony Rivetti) “I’ve had too much caffeine. This is going to be a weird interview.” At least Josh Thomas has the courtesy to warn us. And in truth, we’ve had far weirder interviews. Aussie comic Thomas, of course, earned international acclaim for his first sitcom Please Like Me about a gay man (played by Thomas) who comes out of the closet and moves in with his suicidal mother. The show ran four seasons and grabbed the notice of Hollywood prod...

Loved-based Clarity

It’s common to slant your understanding of clarity heavily towards truth and power while not giving as much attention to the love aspect of clarity. The risk in doing so is that your perception of clarity may end up being too mental and lacking in the depth that emotional alignment brings to it. So you may think you have it all figured out, but your mental models won’t feel quite right to you. You’ll look at your goals and plans, and they’ll look brilliant on paper – until you actually attemp...

The kimono – from costume to catwalk

From the 17th to the 20th century the kimono was the principal piece of clothing in Japan for both men and women. But now it’s an inspiration for fashion all over the worldFashion as we know it – the business of clothes-as-zeitgeist, as distinct from simple dressmaking – was invented in Paris by Louis XIV in the second half of the 17th century. This, at least, is fashion’s widely accepted creation myth. The Sun King and his finance minister, Jean-Baptiste Colbert, established a luxury fashion in...
