Lancome Luxe & Amande Sucree L'Absolu Rouge Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Luxe (238) Lancome Luxe (238) L’Absolu Rouge Hydrating Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a soft brown base with lighter, copper pearl that gave it a more metallic sheen. It had semi-sheer to medium color coverage, though it was labeled as a Cream and not a Sheer finish, so I was surprised by the lack of opacity. It felt more more like a sheer finish; it had more slip, wasn’t as thin or as tacky in feel, and the coverage had some trans...

Danessa Myricks Rose Royal Colorfix Matte Review & Swatches

Rose Royal Danessa Myricks Rose Royal Colorfix MatteDanessa Myricks Rose Royal Colorfix Matte ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a deep red with moderate, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage in a single layer where a little went a very long way, so it was always better to use less and build up coverage–which was very doable–rather than try the reverse. I’d recommend using fluffy, synthetic or duo-fiber brushes, which...

Podcast #742: The Power of Talking to Strangers

Look around a grocery store, airport lobby, or subway car, and you’ll see a bunch of people who are physically together but distinctly separate, each off in their own world, often looking at their phones. In public environments like these, we rarely think to talk to others, and hope no one talks to us. But my guest today says that initiating these kinds of interactions will not only be more edifying and enjoyable than we think, but holds a key to the sustaining of civilization. His name is Jo...

ColourPop Skater Boyz Blush Stix Review & Swatches

Skater Boyz ColourPop Skater Boyz Blush Stix ($8.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a medium pink with soft, warm undertones and a luminous finish. The consistency was smooth, emollient, and almost like a gel-cream hybrid as the product glided beautifully over bare skin as well as over foundation. It had semi-sheer to medium, buildable color payoff that adhered evenly to my skin and blended out well. This shade lasted nicely for eight hours before ...

Easy-to-cancel tours and the mindless narrowing of cricket’s horizons

It’s always been the case that some tours have been easier to cancel than others. Assorted pressures mean cancellations are coming thicker and faster at the minute. What are the implications of this? Earlier this month, we wrote that the threshold for binning the Old Trafford Test was lower than normal. In another year, that match would have been played, but Covid cases, bubble life and the impending resumption of the IPL meant there was simply insufficient appetite for it in 2021. Yo...
