Estee Lauder Chocolate Whip & Show Off Hi-Lustre Lipsticks Reviews & Swaatches

Chocolate Whip Estee Lauder Chocolate Whip Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly, metallic finish. It had semi-sheer to medium coverage with the latter being the level the formula was marketed as having.

ILIA Novelty NightLite Bronzing Powder Review & Swatches

Novelty ILIA Novelty NightLite Bronzing Powder ($34.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with strong, warm yellow undertones and a mostly matte finish. It was richly pigmented where a little went a long way, which wasn’t in line with the buildable claim the formula made–this may be a deal-breaker for some and a reason to purchase for others. The texture was soft, silky, and finely-milled with a bit of a velvety glide to it, and ...

What order do you usually apply your makeup in?

If I’m not testing, then I’d actually set lightly and then apply highlighter/blush/bronzer (unless they were... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Training Your Mind

This morning I got up at 4:30am and set out to do a 6.5-mile run (10.5km), which would be my longest in at least the past year. The weather was nice, starting out at 76 degrees, and I knew would continue to get cooler into the morning, at least until an hour or so after the sun came up. I enjoyed the run very much, especially watching the sunrise while passing a local shopping mall and a baseball stadium. I breezed through the 6.5 miles and decided to push myself a bit more, so I wid...

Challenge: Find One Spending Category to Cut Entirely

Self-control is a challenging thing to master, as it’s always easy to cheat just a little bit. You may limit yourself, for instance, to eating candies only on the weekend, but pretty soon you find yourself eating candy on your days off too because those days feel like a weekend and don’t count. It’s human nature. Most people are very skilled at figuring out how to get what they want if they think and try hard enough to find loopholes. And since loopholes are pretty easy to find, it’s often bes...

L’Envol de Cartier: Honey Of The Clouds

What a peculiar perfume... Why does it smell like beer for some people, others find a lot of honey in it, and yet still there's a group that calls it a "fresh fougère" aroma with the green violet leaves of Fahrenheit, and yet still others consider it an oriental sandalwood and are even are able to find oud wood in it? Final opinions are also polarized: Some adore it, others can't stand it. Two ... Read full article: L’Envol de Cartier: Honey Of The Clouds from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes...
