ColourPop Pier Pressure Super Shock Shadow Duo Review & Swatches

Pier Pressure ColourPop Pier Pressure Super Shock Shadow Duo ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a cream eyeshadow duo designed to complement the Coast to Coral palette. The formula is cream-to-powder, so both shades felt creamier and more emollient initially but quickly turned to a powder-like product once they came into contact with skin. They were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing and performed consistently with the Super Shock Shadow fo...

Terra Moons Ice Giant, Light Year, Lunar Spectrum Iridescent Chameleons Reviews & Swatches

Ice Giant Terra Moons Ice Giant Iridescent Chameleon Shadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) has a transparent base with multichromatic shimmer that shifted between aqua, chartreuse, and pale pink with a smooth, lightly metallic sheen. The consistency was soft, a smidgen powdery but had good adhesion to bare skin and seemed to “melt” slightly as I diffused the edges and after it sat for a few minutes on my lid. It had mostly opaque, buildable p...

Vanille Insensée – A Dichotomous Vanilla Doused in the Moonlight of a Magical Forest

If you’ve ever picked up Atelier Cologne’s Vanille Insensée at a department store and regarded it as a boring, simple, light-hearted vanilla with little more to say, I urge you to smell again! I was once that person; ill-content with its overtly simplistic outlook, I never really bothered with it again. Until, one day, that was exactly the type of scent I was in the mood for – an uncluttere... Read full article: Vanille Insensée – A Dichotomous Vanilla Doused in the Moonlight of a Magical Fores...

ColourPop Big Apple, Berry Ripe, Tutti Fruity Glossy Lip Stains Reviews & Swatches

Big Apple ColourPop Big Apple Glossy Lip Stain ($8.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a bright, coral-red with warm undertones and a glossy finish. It had medium, buildable pigmentation, as marketed, that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips. The texture was lightweight, spreadable, and not so watery that it was too thin or prone to streaking. This shade stained my lips a warm red underneath, which was apparent after four and a half hours of ...

Milani Bronze Splendore Baked Highlighter Review & Swatches

Bronze Splendore Milani Bronze Splendore Baked Highlighter ($10.99 for 0.28 oz.) is a darker gold with strong, warm orange undertones and a metallic finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which wasn’t true to the “buildable” claim the brand made about this formula. The texture was smooth enough, but it was thin and firmer in the pan, so it required a heavier hand or a denser brush to pick up product evenly. The ...

Meine Essstörung zwang mich dazu, während Corona meinen Veganismus zu lockern

s war ein Spiegelei, das mich schließlich schwach machte. Etwa vier Monate nach dem Beginn der Pandemie kochte und ernährte ich mich schon seit circa fünf Jahren vegan. Ganz selten hatte ich während dieser Zeit mal ein Chicken Nugget gegessen, wenn ich betrunken war; von den Prinzipien des Veganismus hatte ich mich aber nie bewusst verabschiedet. Bis zu einem der endlosen Tage des Homeoffice-Lifestyles von 2020, an dem ich Heißhunger auf einen Spiegelei-Bagel bekam. Nichts anderes half gegen ...

Podcast #725: The Curse of the Self

What a gift the human self is.

L’Oreal Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.9% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Replumping Ampoules Get in My Belly

I was at the evil empire last week and ran across these L’Oreal Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.9% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Replumping Ampoules and I swear I was not up for spending $24.99 on them. I don’t really love L’Oreal’s Derm Intensives 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid Serum (do you think I should give it another go?). The only thing preventing me from trying these capsules is the Hydroxyethylpiperazine Ethane Sulfonic Acid. But I’m sort of willing to overlook it and dive in here. The original serum ha...
