Giorgio Armani Mahogany (601) Lip Maestro Review & Swatches

Mahogany (601) Giorgio Armani Mahogany (601) Lip Maestro ($38.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a deep burgundy with neutral-to-warm undertones and barely-there pearl strewn through a more cream-like finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage, which went on fairly evenly and wasn’t noticeably in my lip lines–I couldn’t see the settling in person but I can see it in the close-up photo. It could have been more pigmented and applied a bit more evenl...

Chanel Camelias d’Eau Lip Palette Review & Swatches

Camelias d'Eau Chanel Camelias d’Eau Lip Palette ($60.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that includes lipsticks in fuchsia, pink, plum, and red. They’re in the Rouge Allure formula, though I found that they were a little bit less emollient, luminous, and hydrating compared to most shades I’ve tried in the regular twist-up tubes, which seemed to result in a bit less line-smoothing than I’ve experienced in the past, t...

Dior Coral (004) Backstage Rosy Glow Blush Review & Swatches

Coral (004) Dior Coral (004) Backstage Rosy Glow Blush ($37.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a light-medium coral-orange with warm undertones and a satin finish. Once applied and blended out, the finish was very skin-like–not flat matte but not overly shimmery or even pearlescent to the eye. The powder felt smooth to the touch, dense and firm a bit, but it wasn’t stiff to work with and picked up well with a brush. It had opaque color coverage ...

Gentle Fluidity Gold – Is Beauty or Accomplishment More Important?

Kurkdjian’s game didn’t work. The core brief of the Gentle Fluidity project was to compose different scents with the same notes list. To that end, the goal was achieved; not stated was the implicit notion that this is somehow a challenge. The perfumer made completely different fragrances by, essentially, swapping around the proportions of top and base notes between them, yet they share no per...

Client Meetings: More Jazz Than Classical

I was recently prepping with the team for a client meeting... We were doing the usual drill—moving slides around, clarifying roles and practicing our talking points for what we wanted to accentuate and where we hoped we could lead the meeting. It’s all good practice. Meeting preparation that is. No matter how informal a meeting, one should be prepared and knowledgeable of the topics to be discussed. However, more times than not, client meetings turn into jazzy jam sessions vs. a classical m...

3 Breakout Haircut Trends to Wear This Spring (Before Everyone Else)

In the spirit of honesty, we'd like to disclose that there is no "right" way to kick off a new season. But in Spring, it's certainly not not sprinkling your iCal with al fresco brunches and outdoor concerts (then immediately online-ordering a brand-new wardrobe to wear to all of the above). The itch to get moving tends to rise with the temperature, and you want your hair to match that energy. The only prerequisite to firing up the group chat, then, is to book yourself a haircut. Here's what you...

It’s official: Modern Family has wrapped filming its 11th and final season.

Katie Hill’s New Memoir Is Going To Shake Up The Political Patriarchy

After nude photos of the former California Representative were published online without her consent, Hill was investigated for a relationship with a former campaign aide, eventually resigning from her post.

One Bed, Two Blankets: Does The Scandi Sleeping Method Work?

I can’t remember when exactly I encountered the two blankets, one bed sleeping arrangement, but I do know I wasn’t a fan at first. It would have been during the first year of my relationship with my Danish girlfriend (now wife), when we were long distance between my university and London and often confined to a single bed when she stayed over. So when we went to visit her family in Denmark, I was looking forward to a night in a double bed, free from each other’s elbows. However, I quickly lea...

Does Overtone's Nonbleaching Hair Dye Actually Work on Brunettes? I Tried It to Find Out

When I was 15, I very unwisely used Sun In on my dark-brown hair, which transformed the color into a splotchy, orange-tinted mess. My mom helped pay a professional to fix it with a proper highlight job (thanks, Mom!), but after that scarring experience, I decided maybe brunette was best. Twenty years later, no bleach or color has touched my hair. Flash forward to today, and we've come a long way since those Sun In days with the quality of at-home hair coloring. Ever since Overtone released a bru...

Your 2020 Guide On What To Give Up For Lent

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, which will last until Thursday, April 9, 2020. Even if you don’t participate in it, you may have some idea about what it is — kids at school might have talked about giving up chocolate for 40 days, for instance. For many practicing Christians, the season is meant to be a time to commit to your faith by abstaining from something you consider a pleasure or a distraction. People observe Lent in different ways. But despite its reputation, the holi...

17 Of The Greatest Movie Endings, Ever

The first scene of a film is the hook. It reels you in and convinces you to dedicate the next one, two, or even three hours of your life to going down the rabbit hole of the movie director's imagined world. But arguably most memorable — even more so than a sex scene — is the final scene of a movie. It's the last impression you have and can leave you with a lingering feeling of wanting more. And it can completely change your viewing experience. It can also be the best scene of a movie for that ...
