Fenty Beauty True Neutrals (1) Snap Shadows Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

True Neutrals (1) Fenty Beauty True Neutrals (1) Snap Shadows Mix & Match Eyeshadow Palette ($25.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a warm-toned, neutral palette that had three shimmery shades and three matte shades. It was a mixed bag–nothing bad enough to be a real miss but there’s no shortage of neutral palettes on the market, so it not having more consistent, higher performance is surprising. ...

MAC Dazzleshadow Extreme Reviews & Swatches (Part 2)

Incinerated MAC Incinerated Dazzleshadow Extreme ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with strong, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The texture was smooth to the touch, dense and more firmly-pressed into the pan, so it needed a firmer hand or a denser brush to pick up product well (e.g. a pencil brush picked up product fairly well but a fluffy brush was difficult to use with it). It had good color coverage in a si...

Gucci Wife vs. Secretary, Marina Violet, Goldie Red Sheer Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Wife vs. Secretary (602) Gucci Beauty Wife vs. Secretary (602) Sheer Lipstick ($42.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, cotton candy pink with strong, cool blue undertones and a luminous sheen. It had semi-sheer color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging. The texture was lightweight, lightly creamy and thin (but not clingy), so it wasn’t too slippery but still offered noticeable shine. It stayed on we...

Befriend the dragon: La Vie Est Belle Lancôme

Everyone has their own olfactory nightmare. My personal nightmare has always been La Vie Est Belle Lancôme. The very first, "classic" version, that had been extremely popular for some time, and its mighty trail knocked me down like a dragon tail, every time I neared it. I'd smelled it everywhere: while doing groceries and in the subway, or while riding on the bus, or watching movies... The latte...

1 Million First impression, or The Smell of Disappointment

So, like many of you, dear readers, I was all excited about this new fragrance made by Christophe Raynaud (author of the original edition) with the talented perfumer Quentin Bisch, who I happen to admire, even though lately his work can be a little bit of a hit and miss. For example: I consider the original version of Chloe's Nomade a masterpiece, yet, the new flanker Nomade Absolu de Parfum is ...

This Will Not Be Over Quickly

Italy provides a glimpse of what’s coming soon to the rest of Europe, the USA, and other parts of the world. Here’s what’s happening in the Italian city of Parma: The intensive care units are now all full. Hospital wards are spilling out into corridors, tents, car parks, gardens and commercial warehouses. We are hearing words – like “triage” – which are usually associated with warfare. Medics and nurses are having to make decisions on which patients to prioritise. Some doctors have died, a...

I Thought This Trendy Watermelon Serum Was Just a Fad, but I Was So Wrong

When you think of serum, you may envision a petite tube with a clinical-looking pump that deposits a bitty amount of slick liquid. But what if I told you that the best serum I've tried actually comes in a chunky glass jar speckled with cartoon watermelons? Hanhoo's Watermelon Illuminator Overnight Serum ($24) may not be packaged like you imagine, but it works. Hanhoo, conveniently available in - of all places - Walmart, actually only makes a handful of products. Among its small collection you'll...

Why Are People Hoarding Toilet Paper?

The answer is both curious and hilarious. I just got in from my local grocery where I noticed the toilet paper shelves were empty. Seeing a store employee, I asked him why people were buying so much. He shrugged and said he didn’t know. "Probably plenty in the warehouse." Because of my consulting business, I happened to know that there was at least one Kimberly Clarke plant in the next state over—Wisconsin. They make Scott and Cottonelle toilet paper as well as Kleenex. I’m pretty certain we don...

We are old and in love, but she left me after my cancer diagnosis | Dear Mariella

We might assume better treatment from maturing adults but at least she was decisive, says Mariella FrostrupThe dilemma In the summer I met a wonderful woman online. She is kind, clever, good looking and many other positive things. We clicked from the outset and became lovers after a couple of months. We have a combined age of 127, but we both said the sex was the best we’ve ever enjoyed. She told me she loved me – and it was reciprocated. We live 100 miles apart, but that suited our busy lifesty...
