Tom Ford Steel Magnolia & True Coral Lip Color Mattes Reviews & Swatches

Steel Magnolia Tom Ford Beauty Steel Magnolia Lip Color Matte ($55.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with moderate,w arm undertones and a satin finish. It had rich color payoff that adhered evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging, but it didn’t sit as well on my lips as I would have liked. The lipstick had a lightweight, lightly creamy texture that was dense and a bit more substantial, which, unfortunately, led to th...

ColourPop Interstellar Blush Review & Swatches

Interstellar Colour Pop Interstellar Pressed Powder Blush ($7.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had medium to semi-opaque, buildable color coverage that applied fairly evenly and smoothly to bare skin, though I felt like it was a little harder to diffuse and blend out over bare skin (but easier over matte foundation). The texture was soft, silky, and lightly powdery but seeme...

Fenty Beauty Chocolate Cream Bronzer Review & Swatches

Chocolate Fenty Beauty Chocolate Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer ($32.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a rich, deeper brown with muted, warm yellow undertones and a satin finish. The finish seemed more natural-matte–not overtly shimmery but definitely not fully matte (even after it dried down). The texture was lightly creamy with moderate slip, but it was thin and more like a gel-like cream, so it spread beautifully over bare skin as well a...

Functional Fragrance: A Fad Or The Future?

  Why can a scent make you happy? The jury has been split for years. The question of whether the root of scent’s effect is biochemically innate to the materials (based on chemical structure and reactivity) or caused by post-rationalised neurological mechanisms (association, repetition, context), is still very much up for lively debate within both scientific and psychological circles. Most rese... Read full article: Functional Fragrance: A Fad Or The Future? from Fragrantica Perfumes and Cologn...

The Productivity Tool I Use to Get Things Done

Back when I was in law school between 2006 and 2009, I was a productivity junkie. I read all the books and all the websites about how to hack life like a ninja so I could get more done and tackle my schedule and tasks with maximum efficiency. I also tried out a lot of productivity tools in hopes that I’d find the Holy Grail that would magically unlock a world of optimized living.  During these years, and in the years afterwards, I tried all sorts of online tools, software, and pen and paper sys...

Tom Ford Dashing, Equus, Fascinator Lip Color Mattes Reviews & Swatches

Dashing Tom Ford Beauty Dashing Lip Color Matte ($55.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a bright, medium orange-coral with strong, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, but the color separated along my deeper lip lines a bit, which made it harder to get really smooth, even coverage. The texture was creamy, smooth, and glided on easily without feeling slippery, but it was slightly denser (though not heavy...

ColourPop Staying Up Lux Gloss Review & Swatches

Staying Up Colour Pop Staying Up Lux Gloss ($8.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a shiny, cream finish. The texture was smooth, fluid, and like a creamy gel, so it was comfortable to apply and to wear. It seemed to soften some of my deeper lip lines, too. It had medium coverage in a single layer, which stayed on well for four hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.FURTHER READING: Formula Overvi...

Wie mir die Gebetszeiten im Islam helfen, die Selbst-Isolation zu überstehen

Hättest du mich vor einem Jahr gefragt, was auf meiner To-do-Liste für heute stehen würde, wäre meine Antwort ungefähr so gewesen: E-Mails beantworten, Meetings, Termine und mir vielleicht etwas Zeit für Sport nehmen. Nie hätte ich geglaubt, dass Salaah, also meine täglichen Gebete, ganz oben auf der Liste stehen würden, geschweige denn, dass sie zu der Sache werden, die meinen Tag jetzt bestimmt, alhamdulillah. Doch während dieser globalen Pandemie habe ich festgestellt, wie wichtig Beten...

A paper published last week in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders explains the reason for the gap in achievement between kids with ADHD and kids with Aspergers: overachievement in written communic...
