YSL Light Me Red & Take My Red Away Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Light Me Red (119) YSL Light Me Red (119) Rouge Pur Couture SPF15 Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a medium-dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that adhered evenly and smoothly across my lips in one layer. The consistency felt lightweight, creamy without being too slippery, and was easy to work with. The lipstick stayed on nicely for five and a half hours, left a faint stain b...

Estee Lauder Wicked Wish & Tempt Me Hi-Lustre Lipsticks Reviews & Swaatches

Wicked Wish Estee Lauder Wicked Wish Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brighter, light-medium coral with a balance of pink and orange undertones paired with a barely-there shimmer and luminous sheen. It looked less shimmery than most Hi-Lustre shades have for me, so it seemed like it would be more flattering to wear (as sometimes metallics can emphasize lip texture), but the texture was creamier, more em...

Why Talent Sourcing is a Never-ending Job

Technology and generational factors all play a part in attracting—and retaining—talent at your organization. Here are some possible recruiting blind spots your team may not be aware of. ...

Committing to the Stretch

One thing I love about blogging is that by writing about many aspects of personal growth, I improve and deepen my understanding of those aspects. Writing helps me glean fresh insights connect the dots in new ways. This has been especially true of workshops and courses. Initially such projects felt daunting, but eventually I got the hang of them. Now a big part of my motivation for selecting such projects is the rich personal gains I’ll make in my ability to understand and apply the material. ...

Are You Ready to Shop Beauty in Stores?

I was on Insta today and noticed people posting images of their local TJ and Home Goods being open. I also saw a few folks posting pics of Bath and Body Works as being open. Most of the stores that have reopened are limiting the amount of people who can come in. I’m not sure about TJ and Home Goods but one person said the line to get in was huge and she left because the line to check out was crazy. Bath and Body Works appears to be limiting shops to 15 people. I gotta admit I miss Home Good...

Hollywood: Das tragische Leben von Dorothy Dandridge – der echten Camille

Achtung: Dieser Artikel enthält Spoiler. Fantasie vs. Fakten: Obwohl du bei Hollywood nicht alles für bare Münze nehmen kannst, wurde die Netflix-Serie zumindest von der Realität inspiriert. So nahmen sich die Macher*innen beispielsweise Dorothy Dandridge als Vorbild für Camille Washington (gespielt von Laura Harrier), die erste schwarze Frau, die für einen Oscar in der Kategorie “Best Actress“ nominiert wurde. Deswegen schaute sich Harrier zur Vorbereitung auf die Rolle auch viele Inte...

Wanna smell like lipstick? Juliette Has A Gun Lipstick Fever has arrived! Juliette Has A Gun Lipstick is a new perfume and fragrance that arrives for Spring/Summer 2020 which includes notes of Iris, Violet, Raspberry, and vanilla to recreate the experience and scent of lipstick.

How to Deal with Baggage?

So, my girlfriend recently shared with me that she’s been intimate with 4 other people before we were together. On one hand, I am okay with that because we all have baggage and I love this girl, so I can get over it. But on the other hand, I’ve begun playing the comparison game in my head, and I can’t help but feel like maybe I’ll be missing something for her. I am still a virgin, so if we have sex it’ll be my first time, but she’s already been there before. Now, I can’t help but think about her...

3 Lessons From Homer’s Odyssey

My favorite Homeric epic is the Odyssey . I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve read it. While the Odysse y is certainly a great adventure story, that’s not why I keep returning to the text. I re-read the Odyssey because Odysseus is such a relatable character. Unlike Achilles, the protagonist of Homer’s other great Greek epic, who’s blessed with god-like strength and skill, and focused on the singular purpose of martial glory, Odysseus is entirely mortal and faced with complex ...

The Fragrance I’m Gagging To Try!

So, what’s on your fragrance want list at the moment? I recently did a blind buy of Ellis Brookyln Sweet during the Sephora Sales Event and it wasn’t quite what I thought it would be. I mean, it isn’t bad but it doesn’t live up to its name either! The notes include pear, ambrette and marshmallow but there’s also orris in the mix. I think the combo of ambrette and orris make it more of a masculine gourmand. I thought it would be a fluffier scent if that makes sense. It’s still lovely but y...

Ex Nihilo – Out of Nothing

Frankly speaking, I had been carefully avoiding the Ex Nihilo brand for quite a long time because of its unappealing packaging. (Yes, I choose scents by their appearance, as well!) Ex Nihilo bottles reminded me of some generic mechanical spare parts, produced by the hundreds of thousands, as if focused on expansion, not customization. I don't want to be mean — after all, it is a successful p... Read full article: Ex Nihilo – Out of Nothing from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes Magazine.
