Clinique Velvet Kisses & Velour Even Better Lip Colour Foundation Reviews & Swatches

Velvet Kisses (29) Clinique Velvet Kisses (29) Even Better Pop Lip Colour Foundation ($19.50 for 0.13 oz.) is a darker, chocolaty brown with warmer, red undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff in one layer, which didn’t build up too well due to the more emollient, slippery texture. The product seemed to get pushed around and became more uneven if I tried to build up the color with a second layer. The consi...

5 Dog Behaviors and What They Might Mean

If your family includes a dog, you are among the 48 percent of Americans who have welcomed this furry and loving companion animal into your home. Owning a dog can come with a variety of benefits, but only after you take the time to properly train your pet. Some behaviors may be easier to curb than others, but understanding why your dog acts the way it does and what it may be trying to tell you can make the training process simpler and allow you to better bond with your pet....

What do you like about shimmery bronzer? What don’t you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Shimmery Bronzer I often wear bronzer as a subtle blush – a bit of defining and color without wearing an actual blush shade – so I tend to like some shimmer. I also love highlighter, so I can roll with a matte bronzer as much as a shimmery one… though I find shimmery powders are easier to blend out (generally)! — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Clionadh Forge & Weathered Jewelled Multichrome Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Forge Clionadh Forge Jewelled Multichrome Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) had a blackened base with a metallic, multichrome shift that went between plummy-brown to brighter plum to bronze to warmer green to emerald green to bluish-teal. Per the brand, it is supposed to shift between “rose-orange-gold-lime-teal.” The teal was the hardest to see in person as it was just at the most extreme edge, so it was something better viewed in l...

JD Glow Peachy Keen, Prismatic, Watermark, Bora Bora, Peacock Galaxy Shadows Reviews & Swatches

Peachy Keen JD Glow Peachy Keen Galaxy Shadow ($7.50 for 0.095 oz.) is a light-medium, pinky-peach base–more pink than peach–paired with light gold-to-green shifting shimmer. It had a very strong shift to an almost lime-like green, and the finish itself was a very smooth, reflective metallic. The texture felt soft, smooth, and not too densely pressed into the pan, which made it easy to work with and to blend out on my lid. It ha...

Le Numero Cinq: The First Molyneux Perfume

The Molyneux story of fashion began in 1910: Nineteen-year-old Edward Molyneux, a sketch artist for the British magazine Smart Set, was hired by the London fashion house Lucile.

Don’t Be Shy Do More Huda Beauty Eyeshadow Palette Dupes

There’s allegedly a lawsuit against Huda Beauty related to her Neon Obsessions Eyeshadow Palettes. Did I see that one coming? Yes! It’s always been a great concern of me that these were advertised as being an eyeshadow palette versus a pressed pigment palette. When it comes to pressed pigments and avoiding the FDA there are plenty of loop holes and brands have exploited them quite well in the last two year. Interestingly enough this Summer there are plenty of dupes popping up! Don’t let law...

Healing Circles

As the coronavirus has moved into the homes of more people I know, I see a lot of fear energy being stirred up. People are frightened. Some are angry too, especially as they see others not taking the situation seriously or engaging in sociopathic anti-mask behavior. I contrast this with what I see elsewhere from different groups of friends. They still get scared at first, but the process the fear energy and then frame the event more positively, often as a spiritual or personal challenge. O...

The New MAC Scented Fix+ Sprays Are Available On Sale

I happen to remember the day that MAC introduced their first scented Fix+ Mist. It was 2009 and they introduced MAC Fix+Rose with the Rose Romance Collection. I was thrilled with this at the time as I collect vintage Victorian vanity sets and commonly associate the scent of roses with a fine Victorian lady. I don’t think Fix+ is really a formula I love in general but the scented versions that have popped up over the years have always tickled me. We’ve had coconut, yuzu, and many others over ...

Podcast #623: How to Make Better Decisions by Thinking Like a Rocket Scientist

When someone is struggling with a seemingly easy problem, someone else might say, “Come on, it’s not rocket science!” The inference being that rocket science represents the pinnacle of complexity.
