Natasha Denona Palette 05 Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Palette 05 Natasha Denona Palette 05 Eyeshadow Palette 5 ($48.00 for 0.4 oz.) includes all shimmers, though two shades were more satin-to-pearl, but I suspect most will pair this with existing matte shades they enjoy. I felt like the quality was too mixed at this price point to justify, and while there were slight improvements I noted compared to the very first iterations I tried, there was still room for improvement for three of th...

Sydney Grace Mauve Delight Blush Review & Swatches

Mauve Delight Sydney Grace Mauve Delight Pressed Blush ($9.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with moderate, warm undertones paired with a matte finish. The color deepened noticeable to a darker, warmer pink when applied over bare skin and blended out, which was actually how it appeared in the pan. To get the lighter, less-warm take on it, I’d recommend applying it over matte or just-powdered skin (matte finishes react more ...

Marc Jacobs Rio & Cream and Sugar Enamored Lip Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

Rio (354) Marc Jacobs Beauty Rio (354) Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer ($29.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a bright, cotton candy pink with strong, blue undertones and a cream finish. It suffered from the kind of issues typically seen with more pastel, cream-finish glosses: slightly uneven application with product that settled into lines. It was better-performing than the average gloss I’ve come across with those characteristics, but it can be...

Kosas Medium Baked Bronzer Review & Swatches

Medium Kosas Medium Sun Show Moisturizing Baked Bronzer ($34.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with subtle, warm reddish undertones and a satin finish. It had very fine, gold pearl running through the finish, so it didn’t appear overtly shimmery to my eye but had a glowing sheen as it was blended and buffed onto my skin. The texture was smooth, silky, and not too powdery nor too firmly pressed (or baked) into the pan. It had...

This Gap ‘camp shirt’ looks cringingly similar to an Auschwitz uniform

A cringe-worthy “camp shirt” being sold on some Gap online stores looks like it would fit right in at a Nazi concentration camp. The pale blue- and white-striped cotton T-shirt is getting slammed on social media for resembling the uniforms worn at Auschwitz. “So @Gap made a white-and-grey wide-striped shirt that reminded me of concentration...

What part of your makeup routine brings you the most joy?

My eye makeup for sure. It’s what made me fall in love with makeup, and surprisingly, it’s still the part that I get most excited for. If there’s ever something that compels me to sit down and put on makeup, it’s putting on eyeshadow. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

No One Needs to Know You’re Wearing These PJs All Day

No One Needs to Know You’re Wearing These PJs All Day If you’re proudly living that pajama life right now, well…we can’t really blame you. Life generally is crazy at the moment, so you can’t be blamed for going the hyper-relaxed route while you can. Of course, some women’s pajamas are more appropriate for daytime wear than others – especially if there’s the occasional video meeting on the agenda. The solution? A pair of PJs that’s perfectly comfortable for wearing to bed, but equally suitable to...

I Wrote a Book During Quarantine. What Did You Do?

Alas, that sounds rather presumptuous and snarky, doesn’t it? Don’t worry, it isn’t. It is simply an invitation. Back to sounding presumptuous, though. I really did write a book. It is an eBook. It is short, But it is still a book. It’s my fourth book. After the first book (I’m on LinkedIn – Now What???) I swore I’d never write another book. A few months later I found a coauthor and we wrote I’m on Facebook – Now What??? A few years later I wrote 51 Alternatives to a Real Job. Before it was don...

Building a Motivated Sales Team

When you’re hiring for a sales company, it can become all too easy to assess each employee individually rather than evaluate your group as a whole. This is often the case when your business is still in a development phase and you are dealing with fewer large campaigns that require a team effort to manage successfully. As your company grows, however, you’re going to want to start thinking more and more about the big picture. Competition Versus Cooperation If you’re still thinking about your sa...

These Are All The Things I Love at the Moment

What’s the story morning glory? How’s your day treating you? Is it Monday? Or is it Thursday? I’ve taken to calling everyday “DAY”. There is no Monday, there is no Tuesday, it’s just Day. But today I probably should put a little effort in as it’s Thursday and on Thursday we eat Tacos. Thank god there’s two days with T in them am I right?

I swear, Haus Laboratories was one of the weirdest makeup collection launches ever.

5 Simple Syrup Recipes to Elevate Your Homemade Cocktails, Sodas, Coffees, and More

Most of your favorite sweetened beverages — be it a refreshing soda, your preferred coffee drink, or a delicious cocktail — utilize some form of syrup to impart that tasty flavor. In most cases, that sweetener is a rather simple solution called simple syrup.  In its most basic form, simple syrup is sugar dissolved in water at a 1:1 ratio. It replaces the need to dissolve or muddle sugar right in the vessel; in most bars, for instance, an Old Fashioned is nowadays made with simple syrup r...

How to Use a G-spot Vibrator: Everything You Need to Know

G-spot vibrators are meant to guarantee a G-spot orgasm (duh). Not only they are pleasant to use but also versatile. These vibrators are great both for penetration and masturbation. Nevertheless, not all women believe in the power of these toys. It’s because there’s not much talk about G-spots. Do They Really Exist? Believe it or not, but G-spots exist. Moreover, it was confirmed scientifically in 2014 by a group of US scientists from the Institute of Gynaecology. They conducted the research a...

Herd Stupidity

I’m sure you’ve seen plenty of evidence of herd stupidity recently. One recent example is that when Wisconsin’s Supreme Court abruptly overturned their state’s lockdown, people began flocking to bars and snuggling up nice and close to each other with no protection. Such behavior will just make the virus hornier. Similar behavior has been happening in Vegas too, now that restaurants and most retail businesses are cleared to reopen. While some stores are strict about maintaining decent precauti...

“Why Fix That Leak?” A Stupid Question With A Good Answer

Leaks. A complete disaster, right? You’re sitting there happily minding your own business with a cup of coffee and browsing through a magazine when suddenly a drip falls on your reading material (or worse, in your coffee). It’s at that point when you realize that you have a leak. Let’s rewind though: leaks don’t usually just happen all by themselves, they are usually caused by either a specific incident, such as a direct lightning strike or strong wind damaging the roof, or because some...

The Lipstick Index is Over and The Rise Up Of The Eyeshadow Index Is On Like Donkey Kong

If you know makeup and you’re a huge part of the beauty community the “lipstick index” is a term you’re familiar with. If not, that’s ok, we can do a brief history lesson. The Lipstick Index or the Lipstick Economy is a term coined by Leonard Lauder, chairman of the board at Estee Lauder, which he used to describe the increase of cosmetics and beauty items during the recession back in 2001. He actually made the claim that lipstick sales are a great economic indicator because lipstick is actu...

Deine Brille beschlägt, wenn du einen Mundschutz trägst? Das hilft dagegen!

Bundesweit haben wir seit fast zwei Wochen eine Maskenpflicht. Und ja, es ist zwar immer noch ungewohnt, wenn wir mit dem Mund-Nasen-Schutz herumlaufen, aber im Grunde haben wir uns doch schon daran gewöhnt, sie im Supermarkt oder in den Öffis aufzusetzen. Aber auch wenn die meisten von uns nur wenig Probleme mit dem Tragen einer Maske haben, sieht die Sache für Brillenträger*innen (wortwörtlich) anders aus – denn ihre Gläser beschlagen, wenn sie ihren Mundschutz aufhaben. Und das ist nich...

How to Throw Bruce Lee’s 1-Inch Punch

Bruce Lee is a legend. Most of us grew up watching his movies, like Fist of Fury and The Way of the Dragon, but even those who have never seen his films know him as a multi-faceted and uniquely talented martial artist, actor, director, and philosopher. Lee’s training practices were innovative and his martial arts achievements tested and expanded what was possible to perform with the human body. One of his most famous feats is the 1-inch punch. The punch was first captured during filming of the ...
