Fenty Beauty Macchiato Cream Bronzer Review & Swatches

Macchiato Fenty Beauty Macchiato Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer ($32.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a light-medium brown with muted, warm undertones and a satin finish. There was a very skin-like finish–not overtly shimmery but seemed to have a bit of luminosity to the finish despite drying down on my skin. It had semi-sheer to medium, buildable coverage applied with fingertips or a moderately-dense, angled brush, which was a bit higher co...

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

Primal Tom Ford Beauty Primal Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in one layer, which adhered evenly and applied smoothly across my lips without tugging. The consistency felt lightweight, creamy enough to glide on but not slide around during wear, and was fairly flattering to wear, though there was a touch of product i...

Sephora Be Proud & I’m a Legend Rouge Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

Be Proud (43) Sephora Be Proud (43) Rouge Lacquer ($13.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a muted, medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish with barely-there, micro-shimmer. It had nearly opaque color payoff that applied evenly and fluidly across my lips in a single stroke. The texture was creamy, almost like it melted against the warmth of my lips, and had a fair amount of slip–the impressive part being how well it s...

Best Practices for Conducting Virtual Interviews

I remember—way back in the 1990’s—watching Star Trek: Next Generation and thinking “Yeah, right! As if there’d ever be a time in the future when people regularly talk via video screen!” Boy, was I was wrong! It is now more normal than ever—and growing in popularity with every passing day. With the overall impact of COVID-19, many employers are utilizing video interviewing in their hiring process, and if you’re looking to hire someone—a virtual “face-to-face” interview is likely in your future.  ...

J'Suis Snob Jacques Zolty: Champagne Bubbles

The Jacques Zolty perfume collection was started with the eponymous fragrance in 2007, created for the famous photo model and star photographer. Then, gradually, the Saint Barth Collection was developed, dedicated to the Caribbean island where Jacques Zolty had been living since 1983 - it evokes the peaceful sea breeze, the sense of liberty the ocean conveys, the luxury of the simple life living b...

How to Make Cold Brew Coffee at Home

No matter the season, I like to start my day with a hot cup of coffee. Even in the summer, mornings in Colorado can be nippy and sipping a cozy mug of joe perennially remains a welcome a.m. ritual. But in the warm weather months, the temperature can get toasty as the day wears on, and I often get my afternoon caffeine fix with a cup of cold brew coffee. Chilled and less acidic than its hot counterpart, it’s a great alternative to water or soda, and quite refreshing.  You may have noticed that i...

Hier kannst du Mundschutz-Masken kaufen, die alles andere als langweilig sind

Can We Pause for a Moment To Admire the By Terry Summer 2020 Collection?

Good Morning! Let’s take a minute to pause and admire the By Terry Summer 2020 Collection especially the Brightening CC Palette. I think it should be mine.

Speaking of which I’ve been going through my stash and hauling out all the pretty blushes and there are a lot of them! I’ve laid out 7 for next week b...

Best Vitamin C Serums

Aging is inevitable. Time has a way of catching up to us real fast no matter how hard we try to stop it at its tracks. Wrinkles and laugh lines are bound to appear at some point, so we must have an anti-aging plan of attack. Sometimes, drinking more water, using sunscreen, or eating healthier aren’t enough to get rid of the unwanted age spots, so what we need is extra help from beauty products. One of the most popular anti-aging products on the market is the vitamin C serum. It is known to have ...

Best Eyebrow Brushes

Not so long ago, women relied on eyeliners to make their brows appear fuller and darker. The problem with liners, however, is they make the brows look fake. Good thing, we now have eyebrow brushes that let us blend and spread color flawlessly for naturally dark-looking brows. These brushes expertly apply brow powders, creams, gels, and waxes with ease resulting in precise brow definition that looks seamless. There are specific brushes for specific needs. You have dual-sided eyebrow brushes th...

Best Beach Bags

People who frequent the beach know the importance of having a bag large enough to fit various items. While most beach bags are totes, not all totes are suitable for the beach. Ordinary totes react to things encountered at the beach, namely, sand and water. If you do not have a bag designed specially for the beach, chances are it will get wet and sand will cling to it. If you’re looking for a good bag for your outdoor trip, it should be of good material like vinyl, PVC, or mesh. Bags with these t...

How to Catch a Frog With a Flashlight

One of the best parts of spring is the change in soundtrack. From the frozen stillness of winter, we start to hear things again. Rivers rise with the thunder of melting snow, birds fill early morning light with excited calls, and frogs burp and ribbit their way through the night. For hunters who like to go after smaller game, frogs represent a prized delicacy. Their legs, served up simply with garlic and butter, or battered and fried, are found on the menus of fancy French restaurants and south...
