Kosas 8th Muse High Intensity Color & Light Palette Review & Swatches

8th Muse (High Intensity) Kosas 8th Muse (High Intensity) Color and Light Palette ($34.00 for 0.32 oz.) is the more intense coverage version of the shade and includes a bright, pink blush paired with a pearly, warm rose highlighter. The blush lived up to its “High Intensity” descriptor and was quite pigmented, but the highlighter seemed more like semi-sheer to medium and didn’t build much beyond medium coverage. The highlighter wa...

Marc Jacobs Work It, Skin Deep, Call Me Enamored Lip Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

Work It (342) Marc Jacobs Beauty Work It (342) Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer ($29.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a medium, taupe-brown with neutral undertones and a cream finish. It had an almost vinyl-like shine to it, as it looked particularly smooth with a very glossy, high-shine finish. The consistency was smooth, lightweight but thicker in feel, which gave it a plusher feel on my lips. I was impressed by just how smoothing the formula...

As fashion has its metaverse moment, one app looks to bridge real and virtual worlds for sneakerheads

It’s creating an environment where imagination and technical ability, not wealth, are the only barriers to accumulating the status symbols that only money and fame could buy. Whether it’s famous design...

Best in Show: Minimalist Perfumes (2020)

One of my early lessons in understanding different kinds of art had to do with minimalism. It can still be a bit frustrating to approach any simple, spare or sparse object, painting, film, fragrance, and wonder “What is really here, actually?” Somewhere along the way, however, I learned that a minimal work isn’t about shoving information at us; it invites us to bring our thoughts to it...

The Best Sex Positions for Women

If you struggle to have orgasms in bed with your partner, it doesn’t mean that you’re cursed. It means that you are doing something wrong. A female orgasm is not something that is achieved easily (like a male orgasm) but something that needs hard work. Many women tend to skip the know-how part and think that everything depends on the partner. Thus, all of the partners are divided into ‘bad’ and ‘good’ in sex. But, is it really so? Does a female orgasm depend on the sex skills of another person? ...

Sydney Grace Pink Mist Pressed Highlighter Review & Swatches

Pink Mist Sydney Grace Pink Mist Highlighter ($9.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a pale, whitish-beige base with pink-to-lavender shifting pearl throughout. It had a less intense finish than most shades in the highlighter range, so it was more of a moderate glow with a very smooth sheen. The shift was noticeable–more so in person and particularly when layered over a blush–and looked like a brighter, lavender-pink and a cooler, bluer lavender ...

What inspired your last makeup look?

I decided to pull out Pat McGrath’s Subliminal Mothership, which is my least “favorite,” in the sense that I just never think about it, to pair with the Decadence palette. As soon as I remembered all the taupe shades in Subliminal, I wanted to do something a bit cooler-toned. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Your Religion Is Not Your Identity

One trap many people fall into is identifying with their beliefs. A belief is a lens, a perspective, a way of viewing reality from a certain angle. A belief is a thought pattern, and thought patterns change. You are not a Christian or a Buddhist or anything so limited. You are more than that. Don’t stuff your identity into a mindset box someone else taught you to adopt. You may find a thought pattern empowering or limiting, perhaps experiencing both aspects in different ways. But I wouldn’...
