Becca Ignite Liquid Highlighter Swatches

Just in time for summer, Becca Ignite Liquid Highlighter ($38.00) is here. There are five shades (though Ulta also shows another limited edition shade) available, and it seems like it will debut at retailers on April 4th (I bought mine directly from Becca). Two things I can note: 1) they’re significantly more pigmented and intense compared to the previous liquid highlighter formula, and 2) they are moderately to heavily scented (have to do more verification here). ...

MAC Shady Santa, Haute Sauce, Rose Before Bros, Finjan, Royal Rendezvous Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Shady Santa MAC Shady Santa Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a deep burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was firmer, almost stiff, compared to most of the newer-formula matte shades. It was harder to diffuse and blend out along the edges, but it was workable with some extra effort.

Raw Selvedge Denim [April 2020]

Selvedge denim is what is considered a raw edge denim. There is a tightly woven band on both edges on the fabric. It prevents the denim from unravelling and it is a clean look. Selvedge is stiffer and more durable than mass-market denim (hence the “raw” part). Notably, there is a huge subculture of denim aficionados that only wear selvedge, as they prefer the fit, wash, and quality. What Are The Best Selvedge Jeans?
