Chanel Douceur et Serenite (378) Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Douceur et Serenite (378) Chanel Douceur et Serenite (378) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($62.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a smokier, purple-plum color story that includes two matte shades and two satin-to-pearl shades. There was some variety in depth and finish, so I could see lighter and darker looks, though I expect looks to lean a little smoky overall. All four shades had higher coverage, were blendable, and picked up readily ...

Lethal Cosmetics Breach & Cipher Glitch Liquid Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Breach Lethal Cosmetics Breach Glitch Liquid Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.24 oz.) seemed to have a transparent base with multichromatic sparkle that shifted between copper to blue to green. I found the shift harder to detect and less dimensional than one might have expected, unfortunately. The texture was very watery, thin, and the larger particles tended to clump up whenever I used a fingertip to apply or blend out. With a brush, it was ...

ColourPop First Bite & Twice Shy Glossy Lip Stains Reviews & Swatches

First Bite ColourPop First Bite Glossy Lip Stain ($8.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a medium, orange-coral with a glossy, cream finish. It looked more pink-coral and darker after a few minutes of wear as the underlying stain was redder and influenced the end result noticeably. The texture was lightweight, thin, and watery, which helped the product spread easily but made it more prone to separating and settling into my lip lines. It “set” slight...

The Wild and Crazy World of Signing Incentives

The other day I was driving down the street and I saw a national pizza shop chain offering iPhones to new hires. I’ve seen signs in windows offering $500 to new hires. I was in a meeting with my boss talking about his niece who was considering signing a contract as a nurse for unlimited hours because the pay was too good to refuse. Everywhere you look—there’s a shortage of candidates and hires. What’s the best offering to get them in your pipeline? Cash – This seems to be the most straight for...

Milani Glow Baked Bronzer Review & Swatches

Glow Milani Glow Baked Bronzer ($8.99 for 0.25 oz.) is a muted, peachy brown with warm, reddish undertones and a pearly sheen. It had medium pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage with a second layer. The texture was smooth, thin, and slightly drier to the touch, though it did not appear dry and blended out easily on bare skin as well as over foundation. It wore well for seven hours before fading n...

Armani Acqua di Giò Profondo vs Profondo Lights

The difference between Armani’s 2020 Acqua di Giò flanker Profondo and the new-to-2021 Profondo Lights is subtle indeed. In a crowded Sephora, many will likely not spot much to compare at all. To own both, you’ll have to either be a collector of oceanics or have a vested interest in the brand. If you’re willing to take your time with them, there are riches to be found in both that will rewa...

Dear Bath and Body Works How Did You Get My Best Friend To Pay Full Price for a Candle?

I just really wanted to wander around like a weirdo sniffing them like to get a little Fall serotonin high but COVID has made me scared to put my nose near any surface that’s been touched by ten thousand people. I went into Lush with my sister last week and I was simply aghast they still had chunks of soap laying a...

2 Keys to Staying Mentally Sharp as You Age

People have an almost universal desire to not only live longer, but to have the years they add to their lives be healthy, vibrant, and fulfilling.  A big part of making that happen is maintaining your physical fitness, particularly your strength. Muscle loss is a significant driver in decreasing life quality as you age. If you can’t pick heavy things off the floor, or get yourself off the floor, your ability to navigate life diminishes, and along with it, your sense of agency. Solution: keep...

ILIA Stutter Color Haze Pigment Review & Swatches

Stutter ILIA Stutter Color Haze Multi-Use PigmentILIA Stutter Color Haze Multi-Use Pigment ($32.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coral with strong, warm orange undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had a slightly thicker, more gel-like consistency that distributed evenly over bare skin but dried down to a more semi-matte finish (which was what distinguished this formula from their other cheek/lip formulas). It was easy to wor...

Als ich mit Autismus diagnostiziert wurde, ließ ich das Daten sein… bis jetzt

Diese Woche warten vier Dates auf mich. Das kommt jetzt wahrscheinlich so rüber, als würde ich angeben wollen, aber ich bin eigentlich ein bisschen gestresst deswegen. Aufgrund dieser Verabredungen muss ich nämlich auf Treffen mit Freund:innen verzichten, um sicherzugehen, dass ich es nicht mit dem Socializing übertreibe, und so mein Energieniveau in Schach halten kann. Und warum all das? Weil ich Autistin bin. Das letzte Mal, also ich so viele Dates hatte, war während meines selbsterklärten ...

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021: My Wish List & Recommendations

Black Widow ist Marvels Wiedergutmachung für ein sexistisches Jahrzehnt

Wenn du „So eine will ich“ sagst, meinst du damit vielleicht eine schicke Armbanduhr, oder eventuell eine besonders appetitlich aussehende Pizza. In Iron Man 2 von 2010 sind das aber die Worte, die aus Tony Starks (Robert Downey Jr.) Mund kommen, nachdem er Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) zum ersten Mal trifft – und mit denen er uns schon darauf einstimmt, wie die Marvel-Charaktere seitdem größtenteils mit dem „sexy Avenger“ umgehen.  Natashas (alias Black Widows) erster Auftritt im Mar...

Do We Like The Urban Decay Naked 3 Mini Eyeshadow Palette?

I admit some small part of me had a relieved I can breath again feeling that we weren’t getting yet another palette that contained 30+ shades. I dunno how many more huge eyeshadow palettes I need in my life at this point that was why I was semi excited about the Hourglass Curator Eyeshadow Collection but ouch you hurt my feelings on the price tag there. Oddly, I’ve re...
