Melt Cosmetics Four Twenty Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Four Twenty Melt Cosmetics Four Twenty 10-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00 for 0.66 oz.) is a new, 10-pan palette that features nine matte shades and one shimmer shade. The majority of the eyeshadows had semi-opaque to opaque coverage, but they were on the more powdery side, which resulted in light to moderate fallout.

How to Create the Ultimate At-Home Fondue Date

When you’re planning an at-home dinner date — whether for celebrating an anniversary in the midst of a pandemic or simply to save a few bucks — it can be hard to come up with just the right menu. You want something that tastes great, obviously. You want it to feel sort of fancy and luxurious in order to replicate that restaurant feel. And you want something, perhaps counterintuitively, that can be stretched out and not consumed within 20 minutes; good conversation sometimes takes some marinati...

Marc Jacobs Supa Dupa Fly & Cherry Moon Enamored Lip Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

Supa Dupa Fly (350) Marc Jacobs Beauty Supa Dupa Fly (350) Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer ($29.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a deep burgundy with subtle, cool undertones paired with a glossy, cream finish. It had medium coverage (but it was described as “opaque”), and while a second layer would improve the coverage, the gloss itself had enough thickness that two layers made it feel thick, heavy, and was harder to keep in place. In a single pa...

Your Work Attitude

This is one of my favorite quotes from Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet (in the passage on work): Work is love made visible.And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.For if you bake bread with indifference, you bake a bitter bread that feeds but half man’s hunger.And if you grudge the crushing of the grapes, your grudge distils a poison in the wine.And if you sing ...
