ColourPop x Powerpuff Girls Fighting Crime Blush Review & Swatches

Fighting Crime ColourPop Fighting Crime Pressed Powder Blush ($8.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a vivid, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a mostly matte finish.

ColourPop Plum Smash, Crystal Crush, At Sunset Creme Gel Liners Reviews & Swatches

Plum Smash ColourPop Plum Smash Crème Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a brighter, medium purple with warm, pink undertones and a satin sheen.

Sunday Firesides: Are You Making an Escape From Freedom?

Freedom is a funny thing. Societally, individually, we struggle for it. Fight for it.  But when we get it, we often find we don’t like it all that much.  As freedom goes up, so do feelings of anxiety, restlessness, and insignificance. While freedom can be experienced as an exhilarating thrill, it can also be experienced as a panic-inducing threat.
