ColourPop Miss Bliss Palette Review & Swatches

Miss Bliss Colour Pop Miss Bliss 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, probably limited life (aka around until it’s not!) orange and pink palette with two true mattes, four sparkly mattes, two shimmers, and one glitter. I’m not a huge fan of the “sparkly matte” concept–sometimes you’ll see very fine pearl in a matte, which I’ve been told helps with blending, but the larger sparkles seem unnecessary and are th...

Metropolis Estée Lauder: Big City Smell

Metropolis is one of the rarest vintage perfumes ever produced by Estee Lauder. After its launch in 1987, the fragrance lasted on the market for about five years, after which it was discontinued. Why did the fragrance, which won The Fragrance Foundation USA award in the Men’s Luxury Fragrance of the Year category in 1988, disappear so quickly? After all, winners of other years: Egoiste Platinum ... Read full article: Metropolis Estée Lauder: Big City Smell from Fragrantica Perfumes and Cologne...

What do you like about highlighter/blush duos? What don’t you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Highlighter/Blush Duos I love them! I love duos because they’re easier to make work together, and if a brand has two or three duos, they can cater more specifically by depth or undertone so you don’t end up with a palette of six shades and only love half of them. The only time I’m not keen is when they’re in the same pan! — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Sydney Grace Chloe & Christiana Lip Glosses Reviews & Swatches

Chloe Sydney Grace Chloe Lip Gloss ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium, pink-coral with moderate, warm undertones and fine, gold pearl throughout a creamy finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly without streaking but settled noticeably into my lip lines. The consistency was light-medium in thickness, lightweight, and comfortable to apply and spread, though it had moderate tackiness. ...

Overcoming Phony Politeness

You may think of maintaining your boundaries as something you need to do to protect yourself, but practicing good boundary management for yourself can actually serve the people around you very well too. Your boundaries define what you’re willing to allow into your life. You decide the types of people you’ll associate with and to what extent. You decide what types of behaviors you’ll allow and what’s off limits for you. One guy I know has a clear boundary around whining. He doesn’t tolerate...

How To Build A Strong Rest Ethic

A rest ethic is as important as your work ethic but lawyers tend to neglect their rest ethic to their own physical and mental detriment. When things are busy, the work ethic is in full swing, and when things are not, lawyers are often more stressed than when they are overloaded with work. The two ethics are complementary, and lawyers should strive to excel in both. Rest ethic does not necessarily mean vegetating on the couch; indeed, it can be just as active as work tasks. Especially in a time ...

What convinces you to try out a new brand?

When I see readers mention it routinely as part of products they’re loving, using, favorite products, etc. and if the brand has a (mostly) clean/drama-free background or else has a good period of “good” behavior (some growing pains are to be expected for indie brands). — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]
