Chanel Fall 2021 Ombre Premiere Laques Reviews & Swatches

Lame Ivoire (39) Chanel Lame Ivoire (39) Ombre Premiere Laque ($36.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a darker, champagne gold with warm, golden tones but not to the point of leaning orange/peach. It had a smooth, fluid consistency that was slightly watery initially, but then it dried down to a more transfer-resistant finish. I liked applying this best with a fingertip or a fluffy brush for a sheerer wash of color. For higher opacity, I’d recommend...

Clionadh Amour, Lacy, Pink Sugar, Prosecco Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Amour Clionadh Amour Shimmer Metallic Eyeshadow ($6.25 for 0.05 oz.) is a bright, coral-red with strong, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture was smooth, slightly more loosely-pressed, but it had good glide, which helped everything apply evenly and adhere smoothly without fallout. It had opaque color payoff that stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.FURTHER READING: Formula Over...

Anastasia Iced Out Powder Highlighter Review & Swatches

Iced Out Anastasia Iced Out HighlighterAnastasia Iced Out Highlighter ($34.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a pale, white gold that flashed light-medium, more yellowy-gold with a metallic sheen. The lighter base didn’t seem to translate when applied to my skin, so it appeared a little warmer than I had anticipated. The texture was moderately-dense, firmer but not stiff to work with, and felt consistent with the gel-powder hybrid formula it was. Yo...

ColourPop 411 & BB Spice Fresh Kiss Lip Cremes Reviews & Swatches

411 ColourPop 411 Fresh Kiss Lip Crème ($8.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a light, pinky-coral with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish. It took an hour or so of wear before it wore down to a true “soft matte” finish. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and velvety, so it spread readily but didn’t feel as emollient/wet as other liquid formulas. It was fairly forgiving of lip texture and lip lines, which was noteworthy for this type of...

Perfumed Horoscope: September 13 - September 19

It may be just a symptom of emotional exhaustion, but it can help us to become a little bit more conservative in how much we contribute and ask for better insights into what others are doing with our efforts.

‘I imagine the children we might have had’: deciding what to do with my late husband’s frozen sperm

Three years after the death of her husband at 41, Kat Lister describes the posthumous conception dilemma she facesIt’s the hottest week of the year and I am sitting in a windowless room on the lower ground floor of London’s University College Hospital discussing the precise temperature of frozen sperm. At -196C, these glacial swimmers are biologically inert, I’m told, as I’m handed two props: a thin plastic straw that bends to the will of my fingertips and a cylindrical cup segmented by colourfu...

Tom Ford Ombre Leather vs Ombre Leather Parfum

Perfumes are often created to take you on a fantasy trip from reality, but these days the reality is so frustratingly unreal, that the most desirable journey would be back to normality. And while perfume can certainly create an illusion of a time of comfort, perfume cocoons smell especially fake nowadays. Do you really want back into the Matrix?   I remember the time when The Matrix came out, a... Read full article: Tom Ford Ombre Leather vs Ombre Leather Parfum from Fragrantica Perfumes and C...

Something about my perfect partner isn’t doing it for me…

Love is something you do rather than a thing you fall into, says Philippa PerryThe question My partner and I are both 33. We met around two years ago. He is a kind, attractive person, and from the start it felt safe, relaxed and comfortable, but not especially sparky. This is still true. Yet the more we get to know each other, the more some things improve. Unlike some of my previous partners, he is sensitive, intelligent, consistently kind, caring and generous – qualities I really value and, hav...
