What brands are most reliable for eyeshadows?

Sydney Grace and Pat McGrath were the two that immediately came to mind! I wanted to say Viseart, but there are enough more middling shades (workable, more buildable mattes) relative to marketing that I don’t know if I’d really say “most” reliable. The same is true with Natasha Denona–a... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Sunday Firesides: Marriage Is More Than a Piece of Paper

“I don’t need a state or a church to tell me I love someone — marriage is just a piece of paper.” This contemporary opinion is typically taken to be a reflection of changing attitudes on relationships and societal institutions. But it’s really a reflection of changing attitudes on the efficacy of ritual. Marriage is more than a piece of paper, if you believe that ritual does work. In both senses of that phrase. The marriage ritual crystallizes commitment. In place of ambiguous sliding,...

Guerlain #29, #30, #31 Rouge G Matte Lip Colors Reviews & Swatches

#29 Guerlain #29 Rouge G de Guerlain Matte Lip Color ($33.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good color coverage that could have applied more evenly to my lips, though a lot of it was a reflection of the finish and formula. The texture felt smooth, lightweight, and more velvety, so it glided comfortably across my lips but didn’t feel emollient. The issue I had was t...

Style Under $15: Little Treats to See You Through These Tough Times

Style Under $15: Little Treats to See You Through These Tough Times When you’re on a shoestring budget, it can be tough to justify any type of frivolous purchase. Buying fun items doesn’t feel quite so enjoyable when it comes with a heaping side of buyer’s remorse. Can you really rationalize those jeans, or that dress, or those heels, or that handbag? In a perfect world, sure. In real life, though, you know what it means to shop smart and that can have you doubting your right to an occasional in...

Fenty Beauty Teddy Cream Bronzer Review & Swatches

Teddy Fenty Beauty Teddy Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer ($32.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a medium, golden brown with strong, warm undertones and a satin sheen with very, very fine pearl throughout. The pearl gave it a lightly dewy finish, despite it drying down on my skin, that kept it looking “skin-like” and wasn’t overtly shimmery. The texture was lightweight, lightly emollient, and felt more like a gel-cream, which made it easier to...

Globe Rochas: The World In Your Hand

Why Globe? Was it Rochas' claim for world domination? Was the brand's goal to create a universal, all-conquering masculine fragrance for all countries and continents? Or was it a story about the Earth, as pedestrians who can’t sail know it — the green planet perfume? Or Rochas wanted to illustrate the idea that perfume compositions combine the most diverse ingredients from all over the world...

How to Overcome Financial Pressure

We just wrapped up the 2020 launch of Conscious Growth Club, and our next opening will be in April 2021. The launch did very well. We have 87 members enrolled in our next CGC year together. Financially this was our second six-figure launch of the year, the previous one being for the Stature course in January. I received some feedback from people who really wanted to join CGC this year (some of them waiting months to sign up) but couldn’t do it because of financial challenges, especially relat...

Things Bizarre and Beautiful: Penhaligon's Menagerie

In England there is a good old custom of placing unlacquered wooden benches in the most enviable locations of the country's public parks, they can be made after Sir Edwin Lutyens' (1869—1944) design, i.e. with a rather intricate curvy back, or simple - just a wooden bench, comfortable and unpretentious. The idea is to spend as much time outside as possible (Mother Nature is a wonderful conf... Read full article: Things Bizarre and Beautiful: Penhaligon's Menagerie from Fragrantica Perfumes and ...

Eau de Santal Floris: Humble Royal Fougere

It would be nice to recall our old Fragrantica column, where we write about fragrances taken from the far drawer of the perfumery chest. The dusty bottles that fell out of everyday rotation for years. Let's take them out now to recall, to compare, to understand them again. Now that self-isolation and lockdown have become a lifestyle for many of our readers, my hand itself reached into the far co...

Atelier Materi Peau d'Ambrette: Calming And Comforting

How many times has Fragrantica, after announcing a new perfume brand, received comments like “beautifully written, but when will these perfumes will be available in my country?” Here we have an opposite example. The new Atelier Materi collection was first announced in September 2019 - our colleague Bella wrote about it immediately after the exhibition. At the beginning of 2020, the entire Atel...

Rating and reviewing the wrong-handed bowling of three Sky Sports commentators

The number one highlight of a friend’s 2018 stag-do was when we all took it in turns to throw stones into the sea using our ‘other’ arm. (Which is to say the non-doing arm – the left one for us.) When throwing with your wrong arm, the more effort you put in, the worse you look. It is a highly entertaining pastime and we fully recommend it and also you should video your efforts and send us the footage. Among the minor joys of Sky Sports’ coverage of England’s 2018 tour of Sri Lanka were the segm...

‘Am I desperate enough to watch illicit ultimate fighting?’: diary of a sports obsessive in lockdown

With TV sport firmly on the bench, can Zoom darts, Ukrainian table tennis and backyard basketball help armchair fans get their fix? For fans of televised sport, there will always be that golden Sunday, in July last year, when the broadcast of a topsy-turvy Wimbledon final overlapped with a British Grand Prix and England’s blockbuster victory in the Cricket World Cup. Oh my Djokovic: an unimprovable time to be an armchair spectator, an afternoon of channel-hopping and ad-dodging, hurrying wees an...
