Sydney Grace First Date Blush Review & Swatches

First Date Sydney Grace First Date Pressed Blush ($9.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a light, peachy orange with strong, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The finish was glowing while being quite smooth, so it was more of a glow than an overt shimmer. The consistency was lightly creamy, dense without being heavy, thick, or too firmly-pressed into the pan, which made it easy to pick up with an assortment of brushes. It was extremely pigment...

Estee Lauder Angel Lips, Starlit Pink, Frosted Apricot Hi-Lustre Lipsticks Reviews & Swaatches

Angel Lips Estee Lauder Angel Lips Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a luminous sheen with very faint pearl. It had more of a pearl-like quality to it than overt shimmer, so it was a lot less shimmery compared to past releases in this formula. The pigmentation was nearly opaque, rather than medium, so it was also more pigmented than marketed (which may ...

How To Find the Perfect Perfume for You

Taking a bath and using body splash is often not enough when you want to make the right impression. This is more so when you consider we all have varying body smells, and not all of them are impressive. Adding colognes and eau de parfum will help boost your confidence and exude a better scent. Nonetheless, considering there are so many perfumes and colognes to pick from, it is a tad confusing to pick the one that is right for you. The best news is there are a couple of steps you can take t...

Do Flowers Smell Less Than They Used To?

Yes, but perhaps not for the reasons you think. There is a common household myth that our gardens and fragrant plants are losing the potency of their aroma molecules due to the environmental sickness of the modern world – pollution, loss of habitat, climate change, lack of horticultural responsibility and dying soils. Recent research sheds light on what’s going on.    Breeding  Still as tr... Read full article: Do Flowers Smell Less Than They Used To? from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes Mag...

Theater Loses A Gem: Bomi Kapadia Passes Away

Ad man and playwright Rahul da Cunha pays tribute to actor Bomi Kapadia, who died on Monday. “When beggars die, there are no comets seen; The heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes.” – Julius Caesar I deeply regret not having worked enough with Bomi Kapadia. In my view, Bomi was perhaps the most gifted actor of his generation in the Mumbai English theatre.

The Time To Look For a Job Is NOW! (Even Through Quarantine)

Sad. A friend of mine posted that he is sad, and snappy. This line particularly stuck out from a long facebook post: From a friend on FB: “In February I was pretty much sitting on top of Maslow’s Hierarchy. I had a great seat there, with a spectacular view. And then, over the course of a week, really, I got dumped to the bottom level and found that even that foundation was cracked.” #Covid — Jason Alba (@jasonalba) May 13, 2020 Maybe you weren’t at the top of Maslow’s Hierarchy.

Emotional Concussions

This morning while listening to the audiobook League of Denial, which is about the NFL’s attempts to downplay and deny the serious links between football and degenerative brain damage, it struck me that the athletes themselves were in an untenable position. Imagine trying to defend yourself while suffering the many problems of a dysfunctional brain, including memory loss, severe mood swings, and an inability to concentrate. And imagine doing this when you’ve been part of a macho culture that tea...

So gehen Frauen in der Selbst-Isolation mit ihrer Körperbehaarung um

Erst als ich anfing, diesen Beitrag zu schreiben, fiel mir auf, dass ich meine Beine seit Beginn der Selbst-Isolation vor zwei Monaten nicht mehr rasiert habe. Jetzt, da die Zeit irgendwie nur noch ein Konstrukt zu sein scheint und ich nicht mal weiß, welchen Wochentag, geschweige denn welches Datum wir haben, habe ich es einfach… vergessen. Meine Bikinizone ist mittlerweile auch zu einem haarigen Urwald mutiert. Ich hatte eigentlich in der Woche, in der die Kosmetikstudios zugemacht haben...

Singles sind keine Clowns & ihre Suche nach Liebe dient nicht deiner Unterhaltung!

Ich hatte gerade den dritten Zoom-Call des Tages beendet und suchte online nach neuen Rezepten für meine KitchenAid, die ich mir extra für die Selbst-Isolation zugelegt hatte. Da fiel mir eine Headline ins Auge, die mich wirklich verletzte: „Wir haben im ganzen Land virtuelle Dates auf die Beine gestellt – und du kannst zuschauen“. Ich ignoriere jetzt mal den Fakt, was für ein großer Fokus darauf gelegt wird, dass Singles ja noch daten können (müssen), selbst während einer globalen Pandemie – st...

When to Apply Your Facial Oil The Great Debate

At which point in your skincare routine should you apply facial oil? Good question right? You might actually be applying at the wrong point of your routine! I know when I first started using facial oils I was using them all wrong. In 2010, I purchased a bottle of Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate and I almost feel positive it was my first real experience with a facial oil. Kiehl’s and Josie Maran sort of gave birth to the world of facial oils and made them mainstream. Since that time I...
