Chanel Tender Healthy Glow Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Tender Chanel Tender Les Beiges Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.16 oz.) includes two more shimmery shades, three more semi-matte to satin shades, and one more sparkly shade. The worst performing shade was the sparkly one, as it was very sheer, didn’t build up, and translated very little to my lid and had lots of fallout, so it was hard to work with in a meaningful way. The other four shades were much better with...

Natasha Denona Darya Puff Paint Blush Serum Review & Swatches

Darya Natasha Denona Darya Puff Paint Liquid Blush SerumNatasha Denona Darya Puff Paint Liquid Blush Serum ($22.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light-medium, pink-coral with moderate, warm undertones and a natural finish.

Lisa Eldridge Songbird & Delilah Gloss Embrace Lip Glosses Reviews & Swatches

Songbird Lisa Eldridge Songbird Gloss Embrace Lip Gloss ($25.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark, peachy coral with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, which was as described, and on my lips, it tended to look more brownish than coral (and it may look different on you as a result). The texture was smooth, lightweight, and creamy with more of a gel-like feel, as it was plusher, non-sticky, and very comf...

If you’re someone who wants to lose weight, you’ve probably spent some time thinking about and experimenting with different diets.

Ist Staffel 18 von Grey’s Anatomy die letzte? Was wir bisher wissen

Achtung: In diesem Artikel erwarten dich KEINE Spoiler zur 17. Staffel von Grey’s Anatomy! Irgendwie fühlt sich die Verlängerung von Grey’s Anatomy um eine 18. Staffel an wie die Szene aus der dritten Staffel, in der Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) vor dem Ertrinken gerettet wird. (Nur eine ihrer vielen Nahtoderfahrungen, übrigens.) Die Serie hätte beinahe nicht überlebt – kehrt jetzt aber zurück ins Leben, als sei nichts passiert. Laut Deadline waren nämlich die Verträge diverser Hauptdar...

Schmerzen beim Doggy Style? Das kannst du dagegen tun

Doggy Style ist wohl die beliebteste Sexstellung unter allen Spezies. Sie erfordert wenig bis gar keine Dehnbarkeit und ist für die meisten Menschen eine eher einfache Position, die kein akrobatisches Talent erfordert. Manche Menschen mögen sie, weil sie eine tiefere Penetration ermöglicht. Das ist aber nicht immer eine gute Sache und kann manchmal zu Schmerzen beim Sex führen. Es gibt ein paar Gründe, warum insbesondere diese Stellung unangenehm sein oder wehtun kann. Wenn du herausgefu...

Das ist die effektivste Pflegeroutine für fettige Haut, zusammengestellt von Expertinnen

Wenn deine Haut in die Kategorie „fettig“ fällt, hast du vermutlich im Laufe deines Lebens schon alles Mögliche versucht, um das Öl unter Kontrolle zu bringen: mattierendes Puder, ölabsorbierende Tücher, und so weiter, und so fort. Und während diese bewährten Tricks zwar vielleicht dafür sorgen, dass der Glanz zumindest kurzfristig verschwindet, kehrt das Fett in der T-Zone doch früher oder später immer zurück. „Fettige Haut ist kompliziert, weil sie meist hormonell bedingt ist“, erklärt Paul...

Our Essential Guide To The Best Products To Improve Your Running

Running is famed as being for everyone. You don’t need an expensive gym membership, dumbbells gathering dust in the garage, or even a high level of fitness. The wonderful thing about running is that it running is for everyone, and anyone can do it. You might be more of a plodder than a sprinter or prefer to jog around the block over a marathon.

12 Non-Extreme Ways to Save Money on Groceries

When it comes to grocery shopping, it seems like there are only two camps: the extreme couponing types who devote hours upon hours to cut their grocery bill to the absolute bone, and those who just want to get in and out of the grocery store quickly, never mind the savings. Count me in the latter group. Although I’m generally pretty frugal, grocery stores send out so many coupons with varying expiration dates that it just seems like an organizing nightmare. For frugal shoppers who don’t have ti...

Sigh! Note to Self Never Overshare on the Internet

I’d like to take a moment to address the Black Lives Matters post I did. A world of delicious hate rained down upon me when I posted that. E-mails and some really harsh, hateful comments came at me.

Wide Crops: Five Years In

Wide crops are cropped pants or jeans that are wide or very wide on the leg, usually mid or high in the rise, and cropped two to ten inches above the ankle bone. They are flared at the hem to create an A-line shape. The flare can be subtle and narrow, or dramatic and wide, depending on your preference. Culottes and shorter palazzo pants are a version of wide crops. Wide crops are not the same as cropped straights or cropped flares, because wide crops are wide from thigh to hem. Fabrics can be so...
