ColourPop Extra Glazed Cheek Palette Review & Swatches

Extra Glazed ColourPop Extra Glazed 4-Pan Cheek Palette ($12.00 for 0.3 oz.) includes one cream highlighter, one shimmery powder blush, and two matte blushes: champagne gold, pearly mid-tone pink, brighter, matte pink, and matte, rosy brown. They were fairly as-marketed with respect to pigmentation; the blushes were more buildable and hard to over-apply, though they had enough payoff to show up on skin. I found that the texture of ...

A Pocketful of Soleil

The Sun — what a source of inspiration she has been for humankind since the very beginning of our time. How we have glorified her in paintings, stories, poems, music, and yes, also in scent. With their olfactory creations, perfumers have been trying for decades to evoke the sunrise and the sunset, but also sun-kissed skin, sunrays hitting flower fields or flower petals, sunny beaches, sun-h...

Hope Employees Will Return to the Office? Start Here.

As the world opens up again following COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns, employers that were previously accustomed to a steady hum of activity in the cubicles and corridors must decide if they are going to bring people back into the office full-time, continue to allow them to work remotely, or come up with a hybrid arrangement that provides for a mix of in-office and remote work. A positive way to view this decision is that it provides a fresh start, an opportunity to strengthen the relational subcul...

Post-Pandemic Priorities: Decisions To Make Before You Consider Moving

The past year has made more people than ever before stop and think about a range of different issues. It’s made people consider their jobs, their relationships, their educational paths and a whole wealth of other things in a completely new way, so it’s no surprise to learn that people are increasingly interested in moving house – either once the pandemic is over, or sooner.  If you fall into that group that is giving a move their active consideration, then one thing that you need to do ...

3 Things To Consider Before Buying An 18k Gold Ring in 2021

Gold will always be a classic precious metal among its peers, because this metal is much more valuable and denser than silver, the second most popular precious metal. Also, due to market inflations, gold is one sturdy investment you can rely on during times of unpredictability. When buying a ring, whether you opt for value, durability or a mix of both, 18k gold offers an assortment of choices that can best fit your requirements. This versatility is one of most wonderful benefits of inve...

Innisfree Next Pandemic Victim Plans On Closing US Stores

Korean brand Innisfree announced this past Friday that all North America starts will start closing citing the pandemic. We got our first Innisfree store here in New York back in 2017 and a few have popped up since. No one panic as the brand will continue to be sold at and I assume they’ll keep their website site open as well. Amorepacific is having a hell of a time lately with some of it’s K-Beauty brands.

Revlon Restructures Yet Again

I thought Gal Gadot was going to turn Revlon around and make it cool again. She’s Wonder Woman FFS! I guess not because Revlon restructures yet again. Revlon plans to reinvest in its brands to drive sales and profit growth. Revlon had a net sales dip of 1.8 percent to $445 million and a net loss of around $96 million (compared to $214 million last year). Their plan is to boost growth in the next two years while reducing their annual costs. They also plan on focusing not only on the Revlon b...

Some Careers Don’t Go As Planned

In 2019 I wrote this post: Some Poems Don’t Rhyme If you are a skimmer (like me) you will miss the point of the post. But I think it’s one of the more important messages I can share. My post starts out talking about poetry, and how poetry is just different. Some poems rhyme, some don’t. Some careers go as planned and some don’t. I think one of the most important ideas is that if your career hasn’t gone as planned, you are not a failure. I think it’s easy to feel like a failure, comparing where...

Cetaphil Sheer Hydration Body Spray Moisturizer Light On Moisture But Perfect for Summer

Cetaphil Sheer Hydration Body Spray Moisturizer is a new body spray lotion that contains a hydrating blend of hyaluronic acid, sunflower seed oil, vitamin B5, and antioxidant rich vitamin E to sooth and soften dry, dehydrated skin. I love a good moisturizer spray! I find them convenient to use and mess-free! I also like the thinner consistency as they aren’t as sticky or thick as a body cream or lotion.

Mario Badescu Cleansing Oil Makes It’s Debut

Mario Badescu Cleansing Oil is a new, mineral oil-free formula that’s available now at ($16). Using a mise of rice bran, evening primrose, and lavandin oils this cleanser removes makeup easily without stripping skin. Damn, you had me for a second there! I was really into the whole evening primrose thing but you threw in lavandin and it all went boom. Lavandin is of the same family of lavender oil and not something you want to be smearing all over your face. Although, this has some ...
