Marc Jacobs Pink Steam, Pink Flamingo, Hot Hot Hot Enamored Lip Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

Pink Steam (322) Marc Jacobs Beauty Pink Steam (322) Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer ($29.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a medium lavender with subtle, warmer undertones and cooler blue and lavender pearl. It had a smooth, lightweight consistency that had a touch of tackiness while worn but was very comfortable and easy to wear as it didn’t feel overly thick. It had semi-opaque coverage, which applied evenly across my lips and smoothed out a lo...

What do you like about matte foundation? What don’t you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Matte Foundation I love how well it can photograph — matte foundations tend to make my skin look smoother and more poreless in photos, though I think some sheen is more flattering in person. Matte foundations can dry quickly and be more unforgiving on drier areas of the face, especially around my nose area! — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Revlon Brazilian Tan, Pink Cognito, Love is On Super Lustrous Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Brazilian Tan Revlon Brazilian Tan Super Lustrous Lipstick ($8.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium brown with warm, orange undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which made it more pigmented than described, but could be an upside for those who prefer fuller coverage lipstick. The texture felt lightweight, emollient without being slippery, and thin but not clingy. It stayed on nicely fo...

NARS Orgasm Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Orgasm NARS Orgasm Eyeshadow Quad ($52.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a new, limited edition quad that is inspired by the brand’s Orgasm and Orgasm X blushes. It’s a very light-leaning quad, so it was hard to get diverse looks out of it. I’d say it’s more suitable for someone who likes lighter tones and tends to work with one or two shades per look. The dustiness of the matte coral only made it harder to get contrast using the four shades. ...

How to Grow Your Man Antlers

Across animal species, males and females develop secondary sex characteristics — physical traits that aren’t directly related to the reproductive system, but nonetheless distinguish the sexes from each other. In males, these features are sometimes just for display, and make the animal more attractive by exhibiting its health and genetic fitness. Such is the case in the lion’s mane and the peacock’s plumage. But these distinctive features can be functional as well, as in the case of the antlers ...

Tattoolove: Das sind die kreativsten Tätowiererinnen aus Deutschland

Den Beruf Tätowierer umgab lange Zeit ein Geheimnis: Noch heute meinen viele meist ältere Menschen, derjenige, der einem die Tinte unter die Haut sticht, mindestens tough, verwegen, und vor allem maskulin sein muss. Einen, den man besser nicht im Dunkeln trifft. Pah!Aber Tattoos sind lange kein Zeichen mehr von Rebellion, sondern Ausdruck des eigenen Selbst und seiner Kreativität. Genauso wie die Künstler aus deren Stechnadel sie stammen. Der Tätowier-Beruf ist heute nicht mehr ausschließlich m...

5 Ways to Instantly Improve Front Door Security

A home invasion will change your life for the worse in countless ways. Aside from potentially losing your treasured valuables, an attack also poses a physical threat to you and your family members.

Her name is Marcia Naomi Berger, and she’s a therapist and the author of Marriage Meetings: 30 Minutes a Week to the Relationship You’ve Always Wanted.

Areas under consideration include changing the rules for the unauthorized practice of law, non-lawyer ownership of law firms and more. With the country gripped by a pandemic and unemployment at historic levels, the impact on California attorneys who have lost their jobs remains to be seen.

Oh Hey, Too Faced Papaya Pop Eyeshadow Palette How You Doing Today?

We spoke about the new Too Papaya Pop Eyeshadow Palette that’s being added to the Tutti Frutti Collection for Summer 2020 a few weeks ago. It had an early preview launch on QVC and it’s now available at Ulta if you want to pick it up. I know some of you are tired of peach palettes but I never really get tired of them. They are just my jam. I love peaches and corals especially for Summer looks. Although, in reality, the shades don’t really look all that peachy! I do see a duochrome in there...

Nur weil ich mich selbst an erste Stelle setze, bin ich keine schlechte Mutter

“Ich bin eine schlechte Mutter.“ Fünf Worte, die sich hinter dem Gefühl der Angst verstecken, es nicht richtig zu machen. Doch die Wahrheit ist, wenn es ums Muttersein geht, liegt die Latte extrem hoch. Zu hoch. Es ist einfach nicht möglich, immer alles richtig zu machen. Und Corona macht die Sache auch nicht gerade leichter.

Kosas Deep Baked Bronzer Review & Swatches

Deep Kosas Deep Sun Show Moisturizing Baked Bronzer ($34.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a deep, reddish-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. The more it was buffed and blended out on my skin, the smoother the finish became–glowy but not overtly shimmery. The texture was soft, silky, and blendable without being too powdery and wasn’t too firmly pressed into the pan, so it was easy to pick up product with a variety of brushes...

I sat on the floor, I hauled it all out, and I ripped into with my teeth. About 75% of it was never supposed to be opened at all. I was planning on displaying in the packaging or hoarding it away somewhere. But if this current situation has taught me anything at all it’s you only live once. Let me tell you, I ev...
