Chanel Eau de Rose & Ondee Rouge Coco Flash Lip Colours Reviews & Swatches

Eau de Rose (112) Chanel Eau de Rose (112) Rouge Coco Flash Lip Colour ($38.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy plum with subtle, warm undertones paired with a pearly, luminous finish. It had medium to semi-opaque coverage (seemed more medium coverage on my lips, more semi-opaque swatched) with an emollient consistency that felt like a hybrid of a lipstick and a lip balm. It was thin enough that it didn’t seem overly slippery, ...

Sydney Grace Pure Love Blush Review & Swatches

Pure Love Sydney Grace Pure Love Pressed Blush ($9.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a deep, rosy copper with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It was intensely pigmented–to the point where a little went a long way–so I’d recommend using with a lighter hand and building up coverage if you tend to be heavy-handed or prefer a sheerer application of blush/highlight. (I over-applied even for swatching purposes as it was THAT pigmented!) The co...

What do you like about fragrance rollerballs? What don’t you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Fragrance Rollerballs I prefer the overall effect of a more traditional spray bottle, but I love how travel-friendly rollerballs are.

9 Roomy Cosmetics Bags That Pro Travelers Always Pack and You Should, Too

When it comes to packing, I've got my routine down. Over the years, I've perfected going just about anywhere with a carry-on suitcase by only taking staple pieces to wear.

I realized, if I had the right makeup bag that I packed efficiently, I would have a lot less clutter in my bag. So I decided to go on a mission to u...

True Leaders Are Forged In Fire

I’ve had some success and some failures in leadership. Leadership opportunities come in many forms—from formal to informal. I’ve done both kinds and probably more of the latter.

Actually it’s a great test to see who’s manager material vs. the stuff of leadership. Some of the best managers know ...
