Dior Early Bird Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Early Bird (659) Dior Early Bird (659) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for the fall season. All five shades were blendable, long-wearing, and easy to use, while two shades were more semi-opaque and buildable rather than fully opaque. The formula felt like a gel-powder hybrid, so they have a more “baked” quality to them, which can require a slightly heavier hand if one is use...

What do you like about NARS? What don't you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... NARS I’ve had more flops from NARS in the last year or so than I would have expected, so that’s been disappointing. I also feel they rely too much on the same types of colors, like Laguna or Orgasm, and they have a much fuller blush/bronzer range to highlight. I like how edited their seasonal launches usually are. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

How To Buy A Home With Your Friends

It has long been challenging to get on the property ladder. Affording a home has long been impossible for young single people in modestly paying jobs. Reports in late 2019 showed that more people were purchasing homes with their friends, splitting costs in an expensive market. It is an option that is perhaps dismissed too readily by wider society. Anything that puts a roof over one’s head during economic uncertainty is worth investigating further.  Some people understandably have res...

Incredibly short summer shorts on the streets of urban Tokyo

If the sporting of short shorts was an Olympic event, then this previously photographed young fella would surely take gold each and every time. The shape and shortness of his attire carefully straddles the border between risqué and potential arrest, plus if that somehow wasn’t enough, there’s the added flourish of a perfectly placed butterfly tattoo. And yet that said, if medals were handed out for minimalist outfits as a whole, then the fabulously bold gentleman below would be a very worthy c...
