Tom Ford Summer 2020 Lip Colors Reviews & Swatches (Part 1 of 2)

Empire Tom Ford Beauty Empire Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single, which applied fairly evenly to my lips without tugging on them during application. The texture was lightweight, lightly creamy without being too thin or too dense, but it didn’t sit as well on my lips as other shades in the formula have...

NARS Punta Cana Bronzing Powder Review & Swatches

Punta Cana NARS Punta Cana Powder Bronzer ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a darker brown with moderate, warm undertones and fine, gold pearl throughout that gave it a more satin-like finish once applied. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which could be built up to full coverage with less than a second layer. The texture was soft, smooth, and velvety with some glide to it–it felt more silicone-heavy compared to the brand...

Fenty Beauty Fuego Flush Cream Blush Review & Swatches

Fuego Flush Fenty Beauty Fuego Flush Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a bright, tangerine orange with strong, warm yellow undertones and fine, golden pearl throughout that gave it a luminous, pearly sheen. It looked dewy on my skin despite drying down (it didn’t feel wet or tacky to the touch after a few minutes from application), and the shimmer didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The coverage was b...

The Complete Guide to Hiking (And Enjoying It)

Hiking is undoubtedly one of the best recreational activities and hobbies around.  To begin with, it’s a great way to get physical exercise. The amount of effort you expend can be ramped up or down depending on the length of time you’re hiking and the trails you decide to tackle, and even when the level of exertion is high, it’s a challenge that feels deeply satisfying.  Further, compared to other hobbies (and other forms of exercise), hiking is cheap. The gear you absolutely need is minim...

On Pressure

“Pressure” , Keith Miller once told the veteran broadcaster Michael Parkinson, “ is a Messerschmitt up your arse. Playing cricket is not” . Miller had seen combat as a fighter pilot in World War II. His observation should have been the last word on the subject. But the idea of pressure remains an enduring favorite of the cricket commentariat. It is used, for the most part, as a prelude to the other favorite subject of the cricket commentariat - manliness. Manliness, toughness - just how mu...

Myra Bhathena: Connect Against COVID

 Myra Bhathena writes in I have created a website for people to donate devices such as iPads and Samsung Galaxies to hospitalized patients in isolation. These people are not only unable to see their families, but are also often without their phones or tablets so they can’t even stay connected to the people they love. I would be very appreciative if you could help me spread the word about this issue. Thank you! Why do patients need these? When a patient is hospitalized in isola...

The Beauty of Endless Projects

One thing that Walt Disney loved about Disneyland was that it was an endless project. He could always continue tinkering with it. He knew that it would never be finished. In contrast to Disney films like Snow White, Bambi, and Mary Poppins, Walt found it appealing to pour his energy into a project that he could never complete. This allowed him to make continuous improvements. He would walk around Disneyland often, especially on Saturday mornings, and note issues that could be improved. Someti...
