Sephora Primal Instinct & Polar Lights #Lipstories Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Primal Instinct (77) Sephora Primal Instict (77) Lipstories Lipstick ($8.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep yellow with strong, warm orange undertones with a hint of brown paired with a cream finish that had a moderate shine to it. The color was between orange and yellow, but it was lighter and yellower than most oranges… and there aren’t that many yellow lipsticks out there to compare it to. The texture was creamy, smooth, and lightweight...

Clinique Solar Pop Powder Pop Flower Bronzer Review & Swatches

Solar Pop Clinique Solar Pop Powder Pop Flower Bronzer ($32.50 for 0.31 oz.) is a light brown with strong, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which was buildable to full opacity with a second layer, so it seemed a little more pigmented than marketed but not far off. The texture was smooth to the touch, firmer and denser without being stiff to work with but needed a moderately-de...

Clinique Lunar Pop Powder Pop Flower Highlighter Review & Swatches

Lunar Pop Clinique Lunar Pop Powder Pop Flower Highlighter ($32.50 for 0.31 oz.) is a light, peachy beige with moderate, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. There was very, very faint pink and gold pearl sprinkled throughout, but it didn’t create much dimension or shift in person. Per the brand, it’s supposed to have “buildable” coverage and a “visibly dewy finish.” It had medium, buildable coverage–up to mostly opaque with tw...

Tom Ford Private Blend Rose Prick: A Fox of a Rose

If you could lure me with anything, it would likely be rose. My collection is not that vast, but I regularly wear a few of my favorite roses from it, only occasionally dipping into other genres and images. Any rose that emerges on the perfumery horizon has to be tracked down and discovered by me, and sometimes that means simply snoozing in ambush, waiting for the prey to approach me on her o...

Pick One Beauty Brand That Just Isn’t Doing It For You Anymore

Have you fallen out of love with a certain beauty brand? A brand you just aren’t into anymore? One you aren’t even following for new launches? If you had to pick one beauty brand that just isn’t doing it for you anymore which would you choose to break up with without any regret? I was thinking about this for a while and I hate to say it but Urban Decay kept popping into my mind. The formula just isn’t the same, the releases seem so phoned in, there aren’t any truly interesting palette relea...

The Best Books to Read in Uncertain Times

A few days ago, I was playing some one-on-one basketball with my son Gus. As he was taking the ball back to our driveway’s “half-court line,” he stopped and said, “You know Dad, COVID has really changed our world really fast.” It’s an obvious observation, but when your nine-year-old articulates it, it stops you in your tracks for some reason.  Gus is right. The world has really changed really fast due to the global pandemic. And it continues to change rapidly and fluidly from week to week,...

Warum es deiner Psyche helfen kann, Make-up in der Selbst-Isolation zu tragen

Bevor sie mit der Arbeit beginnt, nimmt sich Allyson Fisher jeden Morgen zehn Minuten Zeit für ihre Make-up-Routine.

Buxom Summer 2020 Featuring XTROVERT Eyeshadow Palette Is Meh So That’s Good News Right?

Buxom Summer 2020 has arrived featuring the XTROVERT Eyeshadow Palette and I’m all meh over here. I already have the Buxom Boss Babe Eyeshadow Palette and the Boss Babe Dolly Eyeshadow Palette and I was just meh on those too which means XTROVERT is currently doing nothing for me (it does sort of remind me of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera Eyeshadow Palette!). It’s actually one of those palettes I’d avoid because nothing seems to match up. I either lack creativity or this palette just has...

Job Seeking During a Recession

Job seeking during a recession is almost unimaginable for those who were living the high life prior to Covid-19 spreading globally in the last two months. While we figure out what the New Normal will look like, it is best to be prepared. Companies still need lawyers – and even more dearly now in these turbulent times. Hiring will continue – even for General Counsel jobs – but the process will likely be more competitive as large law firms thin their ranks to maintain partner profits and their dis...

Shiseido Cyber Beige, Bullet Train, Scarlet Rush VisionAiry Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Cyber Beige (201) Shiseido Cyber Beige (201) VisionAiry Gel Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a darker, yellowed peach with strong, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff in a single layer, which could have applied more evenly. It had a tendency to separate along my lip lines, which resulted in emphasizing my lip texture as well as settling into the lip lines. The lipstick felt smooth, creamy and glid...

Subscription Review: Athletes for Yoga — Designed to Fit Into and Support and Athletic Lifestyle

Erin Taylor, founder of Athletes for Yoga (A4Y), demonstrates a hip-opening pose. (Courtesy photo) My relationship with yoga is very one-sided. Though I do not consider it in any way lesser, I ignore it most of the year when considering my options for exercise, choosing primarily running or skiing instead.  Then something crops up. A switch from skiing back to running in the spring makes my hips and IT bands cranky, causing pain in my knee. A couple ankle rolls on a trail run fire up my pero...
