Sydney Grace Pink Lightning Loose Highlighter Review & Swatches

Pink Lightning Sydney Grace Pink Lightning Loose Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.25 oz.) is an ultra-light pink with strong, warm undertones that looks almost golden-beige at certain angles as the finish was quite metallic.

The pigmentation varied based on how much product was picked up and with what brush, which is true ...

ColourPop Aura & Out Palette Review & Swatches

Aura and Out Colour Pop Aura and Out 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new eyeshadow palette with five more matte eyeshadows, three shimmer eyeshadows, and one pressed glitter. The mattes were actually better-performing, while the shimmers left a bit to be desired. The matte shades were more substantial, more velvety with greater pigmentation without sheering out too readily. New Age applied decently, while Soul Si...

Fenty Beauty Retro Rose, Goji Gang, Cookies & Cocoa Slip Shine Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Retro Rose Fenty Beauty Retro Rose Slip Shine Sheer Shiny Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.098 oz.) is a light-medium coral with moderate, warm undertones and fine, multi-colored pearl paired with a luminous sheen.

The texture felt creamy without being too slippery, lightweight, and balmy once on without being tacky or prone t...

What do you like about full coverage foundation? What don’t you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Full Coverage Foundation I know that I tend to prefer more medium, buildable coverage than full coverage out of the gate!

The Art Of Being Persian

It is sunset and I am standing on the top of one of the Towers of Silence — a massive rock citadel where the Zoroastrians once laid out their dead for the vultures, to avoid contaminating the air with cremation, or the earth with burial.

There are hidden cafés down the winding streets, where university ...

Retroactive Jealousy

So my boyfriend has been with a number of different girls before me while I chose to save myself for him. When I met him I knew he was the one for me and so I decided it was time and as our relationship has progressed he’s talked about marrying me but since we’re only 20, I say that we’re too young. But the point is that he really loves me, but I only think this is because he’s been around the park with others and finally has met who he thinks is right. For me, this is my first relationship and ...

My stand on Tata legacy hotspots is vindicated: Cyrus Mistry to SC
