Revlon Abstract Orange, Pink Pearl, Apricot Fantasy Super Lustrous Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Abstract Orange Revlon Abstract Orange Super Lustrous Lipstick ($8.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, medium copper with strong, warm orange undertones and a pearly sheen with fine shimmer throughout. The consistency was lightweight, thin without being clingy, and had enough slip to glide readily across my lips but not tug during application. The smoother, finer shimmer gave my lips a more metallic finish without being so shimmery that i...

Anti Anti Atelier PMP: Double Negation

Anti Anti Atelier PMP was born in 2016 in Germany. Fans of Stuckism in art (it’s also anti-anti-art, or re-modernism) had to wait a long time — their first art shows and media references date back to 1999-2000.     “The stucked artists” were noted for their numerous manifestos, curses on conceptual art and on gallery owners: “Artists who don't paint aren't artists. Art that needs a... Read full article: Anti Anti Atelier PMP: Double Negation from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes Magazine. ...

Marc Jacobs Forbidden Fruit, Want Me, Make Me Enamored Lip Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

Forbidden Fruit (334) Marc Jacobs Beauty Forbidden Fruit (334) Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer ($29.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a muted, light-medium orange with a jelly-like, high-shine finish. It wasn’t pale enough that it veered into milky territory, but it had translucency and some plushness in its consistency that made it look jelly-like to my eye. It had medium coverage that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips, and it seemed to ...

Becca Own Your Light Highlighter Review & Swatches

Own Your Light Becca Own Your Light Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ($38.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a light-medium, yellowy-peach base with peach-to-pink shifting shimmer that gave it a luminous finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out easily along the edges for a seamless finish that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The finish seemed slightly less intense–in on...

Fashion Advice For Moms During The Covid-19 Pandemic

It is a well-known fact that the way we dress is linked to the way we live. That’s one of the reason women look for fashion advice on blogs like this. However, the Covid-19 pandemic has impacted billions of lives worldwide and is still doing so in many countries. From history, we know that the most prominent disruptions in the fashion industry have not been by a fashion designer but by disrupting events like war and plague. One such example is women wearing pants after World War II so that...

A New Fragrance, Inspired by Mexico, in the Rasei Fort Line: Cielito Lindo

Not everyone knows that the perfumer behind the Australian indie artisanal brand Fort Manlé, the self taught Rasei Fort, also has a little project on the side under his own name, Rasei Fort. We wrote about it first in 2019 when he launched the first creation within this line, named Kolonya. Three weeks ago, the perfumer announced through his Instagram account the introduction of his second fragr...

Remember That One Time We Were Promised Cash Rewards For Our Sephora Points?

Sephora released new Beauty Insider Rewards and Benefits a few months ago one of which was a Beauty Insider Cash program much like Ulta’s Cash Back Rewards that would allow you to exchange points for dollar amounts off your purchase. They actually haven’t yet implemented this program yet. The news broke back in February so it was well before COVID started giving Sephora plenty of time to get the program up and running but like most rewards this seems a fail. When will it happen?

Huda Beauty Lawsuit for Unsafe Eyeshadow Palettes

A class action lawsuit has been allegedly taken out on Huda Beauty due to last year’s Neon Obsessions Palettes being falsely advertised as eyeshadows. A lot of people tend to jump on me when I mention in my reviews that certain eyeshadows or palettes are not safe for eyes. “But it’s safe in the Europe….! It’s just a US thing!” First off, I live in the US so, yeah, it’s a US thing and in the US certain dyes are deemed unsafe for eye use. Secondly, they are deemed unsafe for eye use for good rea...

Fortunately, in this instance, finances were stable enough to present the whole great collection, and the bottles are gilded and adorned wit...

FH77 Courrèges: Artillery or perfume?

I decided to find and try FH 77 Courrèges masculine fragrance, because of the cult status of another brand's fragrance, Empreinte Courreges, as well as its extreme rarity and urban legend associated with FH 77. They said, the fragrance was named after the cannon. That's quite a rare thing. Yes, it's true, Google search of FH 77 will give you photos of Swedish field howitzer (Sweden - falthaubitz)...

What Are You Most Insecure About and What Beauty Product Do Use To Make You Feel Better About It?

Some people use makeup as a mask to help them with their insecurities and I don’t think that’s a bad thing. Makeup is an empowering tool that goes a long way at making us feel better about insecurities we may have. It makes us feel pretty when we aren’t feeling so pretty! It makes our dark circles magically disappear. It makes our noses slimmer. It tackles the difficult job of concealing scarring or acne or dark spots. Isn’t it a little miracle that something as simple as putting on red lip...

Wanna Have An Orgasm?

NARS Orgasm X Quad Eyeshadow arrived last week did you snag one? P.S. Get your mind out of the gutter over there. NARS released two new Orgasm Eyeshadow Palettes as an early Summer 2020 release one of which popped up at Sephora during the last day of the Rouge Event. That particular palette is a softer selection of shades inspired by Orgasm Blush. I picked it up but in no way is it a good representation of the blush as the colors are very, very soft. The Orgasm X Eyeshadow Palette is anot...

One trap that many personal development enthusiasts fall into is becoming overly self-absorbed, which severely limits their results in the long run. Working on your own problems and challenges can be rewarding when you start getting results that matter to you. Maybe you adopt a new habit like becoming an early riser, and it feels good to make that shift. Perhaps you change careers, and that feels good too. Where self-absorption often falls flat, however, is income generation. I’d say it’s ...
