Charlotte Tilbury Desert Haze Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Desert Haze Charlotte Tilbury Desert Haze Eyeshadow Quad ($53.00 for 0.18 oz.) is an all-matte quad that features warmer-toned neutrals that still had some saturation but were more toned-down–not as vivid in a way. All four shades had rich pigmentation, while the textures were soft and blendable with light powderiness–mostly present in the pans–that made it easy to use. ...

What do you like about beauty sponges? What don’t you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Beauty Sponges These days, I tend to use beautyblenders if I reach for a sponge, but I still reach and use brushes in most instances. I like using a beautyblender for final touches or to tamp down a bit of powderiness if I don’t want to use a setting spray/mist over everything. They’re such a pain to clean–I just feel like it takes so much water to do so–compared to brushes for me. — Christine Join ...

What are ways that sales associates have been helpful to you while shopping?

I like a friendly greeting and brief check in – something like “Can I help you?” and then giving me space to browse/shop. In the context of beauty, perhaps not at the moment, but I also liked when they would say “feel free to swatch and let me know if you want to try anything!” I really... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Charlotte Tilbury Deep Airbrush Bronzer Review & Swatches

Deep (4) Charlotte Tilbury Deep (4) Airbrush Bronzer ($55.00 for 0.56 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, and it built up well, though it was a challenge to diffuse and blend out as the product had a tendency to adhere wherever it was initially applied and then deepen unevenly from there. The latter is something I’ve had trouble with whe...

16 Interesting Facts You Probably Didn’t Know About Lingerie

Would You Dye Your Underarm Hair? Asking For A Friend…!

My Summer home is actually pretty close to where Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman’s residence is in Woodstock is (or was who knows now that they are separated). I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Amanda perform at Helsinki and yeah, her underarm hair is an entity all itself. Amanda is that “I just don’t give a f&ck!” girl and you gotta admire that. She just refuses to conform to what society tells women to do, feel, and act. One thing I’ve never seen her do is dye her underarm hair. That’s a thing...

Over nine weeks, and three grueling phases, soldiers undergo physical, mental, and emotional challenges that test their endurance, resilience, and leadership.
