Dior Pink Glow Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Pink Glow (619) Dior Pink Glow (619) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a pink and red color, neutral color story that included satin to sparkle finishes. Two of the shades were more sparkly but had decent coverage despite that, so they were functional as standalone shades as well as for layering. I had issues with the fifth shade, which felt quite different than any other shadow I’ve tried from the brand–it...

Chanel Low Key & Mode Rouge Allure Velvet Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Low Key (74) Chanel Low Key (74) Rouge Allure Velvet ($40.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, dusty pinky-coral with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied fairly evenly but settled into my lip lines. The texture was lightweight, smooth, and thin without being clingy with a very velvety glide that didn’t feel as emollient as it looked on my lips. It wasn’t the most forgiving formula of lip ...

Light Blue Pour Homme vs Light Blue Forever

Dolce Gabbana Light Blue Pour Homme is a classic that will likely always be part of the brand. Uplifting like ocean spray, fizzy with citrus rind, and fruity like a sour mocktail, the Light Blue blend has lasted the test of time. 2017’s Light Blue Eau Intense Pour Homme simply concentrated that same DNA. The new-to-2021 Light Blue Forever Pour Homme is a new and distinct composition. The headl... Read full article: Light Blue Pour Homme vs Light Blue Forever from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colo...

Sometimes You Gotta Drag Your Boyfriend to Cracker Barrel for Dionis Caramel Pumpkin Spice Hand Cream

As you know my man is not a fan of Cracker Barrel. Anywhere he has to sit and wait for food while country music plays loudly is a NO go for him. Not to mention he’s Mr. Universe aka my body is my temple and it’s not like Cracker Barrel has a huge selection of tofu and greens to satisfy him. I can’t say I feel the same way. I actually like it. Ok, confession, I hate country music! Ugh…! No! But the rest of the experience is pretty darn awesome. I love roaming around the country store as I...

Nietzsche’s (Surprisingly Sound) Advice on Choosing a Spouse

Plenty of advice on what makes for a good, happy marriage has been thrown around for centuries.  Ironically enough, it was a lifelong bachelor, who possessed rather ambivalent feelings on the institution, who offered some of the very best insights on this front.  Friedrich Nietzsche never walked down the aisle himself, though he proposed marriage multiple times, to the same woman, who rejected each of his overtures. Perhaps, as may have been the case with Thoreau as well, this experience o...

What Beauty Product Have You Purchased Due To Advertisement?

Have you ever purchased a beauty product strictly due to awesome advertisements? Perhaps it was a commercial or a magazine layout that influenced the purchase? I am very much guilty of this particularly when I was younger and believed every single thing that marketing was feeding me about how the product would give me flawless skin, conceal all my imperfections, do my laundry, and walk my dog. The older I get the more skeptical I become about the allure and promise of what a product can do f...

What are your favorite types of holiday releases?

A study of 61,000 Microsoft employees suggests remote work is bad for communication between different teams

Remote workers can pose "insider threats" to companies, not always intentionally. Justin Paget/Getty Images Fully remote workers communicate less with people outside their team, a study suggests.
