AURIC Morganite 2.0 Glow Lust Review & Swatches

Morganite 2.0 Auric Morganite 2.0 Glow Lust Radiant Luminizer ($45.00 for 1.13 oz.) is a light beige with soft, warm undertones and a fine, pearly sheen. It had a low-level sheen on skin, applied on its own, as a standalone highlighter, so it never emphasized my skin’s natural texture. When mixed in with moisturizer or foundation, it added noticeable luminosity without drastically altering the finish. The consistency was smooth, li...

♥ © Copyright of My Women Stuff Original Full Post is found here: Is it maskne or is it just poor eating habits? 3 ways I treated my maskne problem OK, that’s a bit click-baity isn’t it?

Well hello there! How’s everyone doing today? The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Preview went live today. Excited? I see a few things I want but the sale simply isn’t what it used to be. I feel very validated when I say that because many of you agree but also, a lot of the sales reps that I regularly use constantly say the same thing. It’s just not as grand as it once was.

5 Oral Habit Tips for Maintaining Healthy Gums

Your gums shield your teeth roots, jawbones and teeth from harmful bacteria and act as the structural backbone that holds them up. Your teeth would fail without their support. However, gums are themselves vulnerable to disease-causing microbes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that 47.2%, almost half, of American adults aged 30 and over are afflicted with periodontal (gum) disease of some kind, a number that only increases with age, with 70.1% of those 65 and up suffe...

The Least Interesting Generation

Before Steve McQueen’s 18th birthday, he had worked on a farm, joined a circus, sold pens at a traveling carnival, hitchhiked and rode the rails across the country, worked as a lumberjack in Canada, labored on a chain gang in the Deep South (punishment for the crime of vagrancy), served a short (and illegal — he was underage) stint in the Merchant Marines, and joined the Marine Corps for a three-year enlistment. After getting out of the service, the newly-minted veteran moved to New York City,...

We’re Doing It Manually! We’re Just Going To Do It Manual!

With the Clarisonic gone and so few good options available we may have to resort to manual cleansing brushes once again! I grabbed up the Sephora Makeup Remover and Cleansing Vegan Brush recently and I regret nothing. This little gadget set me back a mere $12 and it’s a rather nice manual cleansing brush. I’ve used a variety of manual brushes over the years and of course, little silicone pads which I love. With Clarisonic soon disappearing and me over here running low on replacement brushes I...

Lawyer Well-Being Is In Decline, Survey Reports

Lawyer well-being is in decline, according to a recent Bloomberg Law survey. While this may not be surprising given the extra toll of the pandemic, the trend is not new. Lawyers are one of a few groups that suffer disproportionately from mental health, substance abuse and stress-related issues. As the world slowly exits the pandemic period, lawyers must take stock of where they are mentally, and what they can do to improve and maintain their well-being in the New Normal.

ILIA Uptown Nightlite Bronzing Powder Review & Swatches

Uptown ILIA Uptown NightLite Bronzing Powder ($34.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with warmer, more golden undertones and a natural matte finish. I found that it seemed to take on some of the natural finish of my skin (read: not flat or 100% matte!) but didn’t stick/become difficult to do so. The consistency was soft, smooth, and finely-milled, but there was light powderiness present in the pan. I found using a lighter hand ...

Do you change your mascara based on the type of look?

Sort of but not by a lot! I usually like more dramatic mascaras to begin with, but if I have a really dark/smoky lid area or lower lash line, I will try to use a more lengthening and thickening one (the length being more important) if I have one open. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Hold the toast! 10 delicious avocado recipes – from latkes to luscious lime cheesecake

There is so much more to do with an avocado than just mash it up, whether you decide to make a grilled peach salad, Mexican chicken soup or fabulous ice-creamAvocado has three main uses: the first is avocado toast; the second is guacamole; the third is being held aloft as a totem for why millennials will never be able to afford their own homes. This is all rather unfair. The sheer number of air miles that it takes to reach your plate is often so vast that an avocado should be a treat. Thoughtles...
