ColourPop Reflection, Touch the Sky, Colors of the Wind, Down in New Orleans Super Shock Shadows Reviews & Swatches

Reflection ColourPop Reflection Super Shock Shadow is a darker, coppery-brown base with flecks of fine red and gold sparkle throughout. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied somewhat unevenly as the base seemed to clump up a bit, so it was harder to get a really nice, even layer that didn’t look unblended. The texture was more emollient than the average shade within this formula as well. It lasted decently for nine hours be...

Why you can't get tanned by sunbathing through most types of glass

Melanin is a dark pigment in our skin that changes radiation energy into heat. Getty Images / Joel Carillet The reason most standard glass stops you from getting a tan is that UV rays can't penetrate it. UV rays make our skin produce melanin, the dark pigment that protects us from burns. Standard glass in windows is made with lime and soda - it results in a glass that blocks UV rays.
