Bite Beauty Negroni & Brandy Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayons Reviews & Swatches

Negroni Bite Beauty Negroni Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a vibrant, medium-dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a satin sheen. It had nearly opaque color payoff that applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of product that didn’t emphasize my lip texture or lip lines. The texture was smooth, thin without being clingy, and emollient enough to glide on with ease but not enough to fe...

ColourPop Drop a Hint Lux Liquid Lipstick Duo Review & Swatches

Drop a Hint Colour Pop Drop a Hint Lux Liquid Lip Duo ($14.00 for 0.34 oz.) contains two warm-toned pinks; one in a light-medium depth and the other in a more medium-level depth. Both shades were more pigmented than marketed, which may be a good or bad thing depending on your needs. To sheer them out, I’d recommend applying some product to the center of the lips and using a fingertip to blend outwards. Both shades settled somewha...

NARS Dominate Blush Review & Swatches

Dominate NARS Dominate Powder Blush ($30.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a medium-dark red with moderate, warm copper undertones and a metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, soft consistency that was slightly dry to the touch, but it didn’t have powderiness in the pan.

What would make single eyeshadows more compelling to you?

I like when brands curate their single ranges into “pre-made” color combinations, which I think helps give people a better idea of how to arrange products.

This visual flair isn’t just an aesthetic feature, it helps the Twystr diffuse aroma efficiently and with speed.Twystr is a better, better-looking aroma diffuser that allo...

Harry Styles's Manicurist Reveals the Nail Art He Tried (and Failed) to DIY at Home

It's hard to pinpoint what exactly makes Harry Styles so incontestably endearing. Maybe it's the energy that bounces along with him and Lizzo as they sing "Juice", or the deliberately uncouth manner in which he wears his hair. It could also be that he steps out in the makeup, earrings, or nail polish that make him feel good, damnit, because who in the hell says those things are gender exclusive? Not us, nor Styles, nor the pro behind each of his most recent nail looks, longtime celebrity manicur...

“With the whole Oscars thing, there was a big gap between what I thought the problem was versus what the problem really was.
