MAC So Natural Glow Play Blush Review & Swatches

So Natural MAC So Natural Glow Play Blush ($30.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a very light brown with warm, peachy undertones and a satin sheen. It had slightly more shimmer than other shades in the formula, though it was still subtle when applied and blended out. The consistency was smooth to the touch, lightly pliable with its cream-to-powder texture–kind of like an airier, less-dense clay as it felt drier to the touch (not the slip of a tr...

Fenty Beauty In Big Truffle, Bachelor Pad, Black Card, Cuz I’m Black Flypencil Eyeliners Reviews & Swatches

In Big Truffle Fenty Beauty In Big Truffle Flypencil Longwear Eyeliner ($22.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a deep brown with subtle,w arm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one pass, which was buildable to nearly opaque coverage with a second layer. The pencil had a smooth, lightly creamy texture that glided easily across my skin without tugging but was quick to set so it didn’t migrate into fine lines. It wor...

Melt Cosmetics Crushed Glitter Lip Glosses Reviews & Swatches

Sucker Melt Cosmetics Sucker Crushed Glitter Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.12 oz.) has a very sheer, milky base with flecks of small and larger pieces of opalescent glitter pieces. Of the four glosses, this one actually had more semi-sheer “coverage” from glitter and had better dispersion of that glitter, so it covered more evenly and was somewhat visible in person. The larger, “irregular” shaped glitter didn’t always lay flat (as they ...

What do you like about highlighter palettes? What don’t you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Highlighter Palettes While I can understand why a highlighter palette with similar tones may make more sense for a particular skin tone, I prefer ones that have a good variety as I think that’s a good way to get value out of the palette. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What are your deal-breakers when it comes to blush?

I’ve found that anything really intense–like a deeper hue–coupled with opaque coverage ends up being something I don’t reach for. I like more light and mid-tone colors and prefer medium, buildable coverage. I also don’t like thinner consistencies and prefer something with more slip or... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Here’s Some New Stuff You Can Put In Your Hair for Spring 2020

Short, long, curly, fine, what’s your hair type? My hair is long, all the way to my butt, wavy, a bit dry, unruly AF, it’s a entity all its own. My BF says, “Never cut it!” but I’m always every so close to shaving myself bald most days. I’m always so jealous of woman that spend so much time and attention on their hair. Unless I’m going out I really don’t do a lot with my hair. But oddly enough, I sort of dig buying new potions, conditioners, and styling products for it. Is that terribly we...

The Inverted French Manicure Is Our Favorite Spin on the Classic Look

We thought we had seen every twist on the classic French manicure possible – but oh, were we wrong. There's a new take on the throwback trend (and one we should have seen coming with the "glass French" mani, the "French moon" look, and many cool new iterations), only this one flips the traditional design upside down. Meet the inverted French manicure. Of course, we shouldn't be surprised by this new take. No one is seen in public wearing a classic nail these days. The inverted French manicure i...

Love Him or Hate Him, Dead or Alive Karl Lagerfeld Has a L’Oreal Makeup Collection

L’Oreal x Karl Lagereld launched earlier this month right on time for the anniversary or Karl’s death on Febuary 19, 2019. It’s always unusual to see designers, celebrities, and music icons immortalized in a variety of different collaborations after their death. I imagine the L’Oreal Collection was well underway before his death since he had worked with Shu Uemura, another L’Oreal brand, in the past. He was a person you really loved or you really hated. In the fashion world, to many, he was ...

20 Hacks To Keep the House Tidy for Those Who Hate Cleaning

Who said confusion is a bad thing? According to British playwright Thomas Middleton, the disorder is the perfect way to always make exciting discoveries. Seriously, keeping your home tidy, for some, is a pleasure. Still, for many, due to the lack of time and desire, it is a real challenge, which has very little joy. Leaving the house in chaos is not an option since the consequences could be very annoying for the normal performance of daily actions. So, how to get organized? In the end, ...

Mein Partner hat 3500 Euro unserer gemeinsamen Ersparnisse verspielt

„Ich muss dir etwas erzählen“, schrieb er mir. Mir rutschte das Herz in die Hose. In der Vergangenheit hatte ich die Erfahrung gemacht, dass diese fünf Worte meist nichts Gutes bedeuten. Und wie sich herausstellte, hatte mein Bauchgefühl auch dieses Mal recht. Ein paar Stunden nach dem mir mein Freund die Nachricht geschickt hatte, trafen wir uns und ich wusste sofort, dass etwas nicht stimmt – seine roten Augen und sein kreidebleiches Gesicht verrieten es direkt. Während ich mir im K...

4 “Notes to Self” that Will Stop You from Taking Today for Granted

“May you actually live every day of your life.” — Jonathan Swift I recently received an email from a young “Think Better, Live Better 2020” digital ticket attendee named Kaarina that nearly brought me to tears. And after exchanging a few heartfelt replies back and forth with her, she graciously gave me permission to share the opening lines of her initial email: “I’m dying of cancer (Lymphoma) at age 21. I was sent home from the hospital for my final weeks over 32 weeks ago. But now I’m back a...

Rose Goldea Blossom Delight – Simple and Satisfying

“How do you write like the Economist?”

A new member of the Economist staff asked as he began to compose his first leading article for the magazine some years ago. “Pretend you are God,” a senior colleague replied. But since the deity regularly fails to comment directly on current affairs, as Stefan Collini amusingly wrote in the London Review of Books, that anxious recruit may have had difficulty putting this recommendation into practice. Though I’ve occasionally found errors and unreasonable bias in the Economist, it seems to happen...
