Chanel Glow & Dream Rouge Coco Bloom Lip Colours Reviews & Swatches

Glow (114) Chanel Glow (114) Rouge Coco Bloom Lip Colour ($40.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a darker, reddened-plum with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was slightly buildable but was never fully opaque on me. The lipstick had a moderately emollient consistency that was lightweight, comfortable to apply and to wear, and wasn’t prone to emphasizing my natural lip texture. It stayed on nicely...

Pat McGrath Lovestruck Divine Blush Review & Swatches

Lovestruck Pat McGrath Lovestruck Divine BlushPat McGrath Lovestruck Divine Blush ($38.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a deep pink with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had medium, buildable pigmentation, which made it one of the more buildable shades in the range–and thus, closer to the brand’s marketing of the formula. It did not feel like I had to pile it on to get more opacity, and I didn’t have to use the world’s lightes...

Six Thoughts On Career Transition

This past week I “celebrated” a year of career transition. It seems like a strange thing to celebrat e  as I didn’t find career transition, it found me. But unless you’re one of those rare creatures in life where everything goes according to plan — a career transition is just like one of any other’s life curveballs like the end of a relationship, or an accident, or maybe getting some news from the doctor that impacts your health and lifestyle. During this time, I have kept busy with contract w...

How do you resist the urge to impulse purchase?

For the most part, I don’t have to “control” the urge since I tend to buy new releases when they launch. For the occasions where I see a new brand that I haven’t heard of, I try to follow them on social and see how they present themselves, do some research to see if there are any issues from... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Bite Beauty Coconut Rum Daycation Whipped Blush Review & Swatches

Coconut Rum Bite Beauty Coconut Rum Daycation Whipped BlushBite Beauty Coconut Rum Daycation Whipped Blush ($32.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a light brown with warmer undertones and a pearly sheen. It had the finest pearl within the range, so it was easier to work with than others in the line, though it was still a drier formula that did not like to diffuse and blend out. It had semi-sheer coverage, which didn’t really build up; the best way...

We all believe we should exercise more. So why is it so hard to keep it up? Daniel E Lieberman, Harvard professor of evolutionary biology, explodes the most common and unhelpful workout mythsYesterday at an outdoor coffee shop, I met my old friend James in person for the first time since the pandemic began.
