Tom Ford Fall 2021 Collection Swatches

Tom Ford Fall 2021 CollectionTom Ford Fall 2021 Collection includes new shades in the Lip Color and Gloss Luxe ranges, along with six blush duos (I have four). The Gloss Luxe formula came out some time ago, though this is my first time trying it, and now I need to go see if I have any more lingering around that I never got around to reviewing–lip products are endless!–because they seem promising with respect to texture. The blush duos are stupidly expensive; it’s Tom F...

ColourPop x Hocus Pocus Fresh Kiss Lip Cremes Reviews & Swatches

Calming Circle ColourPop Calming Circle Fresh Kiss Lip Crème ($8.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a deeper peach with moderate, warm orange undertones and a cream finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied fairly evenly across my lips without emphasizing my lip texture, though there was a bit that settled into my deeper lip lines. It wasn’t noticeable in person, thankfully. The texture was smooth, like a velvety cream w...

ColourPop Mallrat Blush Stix Review & Swatches

Mallrat ColourPop Mallrat Blush Stix ($8.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a soft, peachy-coral with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It was dewy without being overtly shimmery or so glossy that it was heavy or sticky; there was a slight dry down, so it was a little transfer-resistant but not a full dry down. It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation that applied well with fingertips or brushes, and it layered well over foundation or placed j...

Clinique Cheek Pop Pearl Swatches

Clinique Cheek Pop PearlClinique Cheek Pop Pearl is the successor to the brand’s Cheek Pop formula. There are six shades, which all hover around more light to mid-depth and warmer hues. I was really disappointed that this wasn’t used as an opportunity to diversify the shade range, and at the very least, a shade like Cola Pop didn’t return. From initial use, they seem very similar to the original Cheek Pops, though they seemed to have less luminosity and slightly more ...

Happy 17th Birthday to my William!

My oldest “baby” is 17! I’ll never forget when they placed William in my arms, it was instant love and I couldn’t believe this child chose me to be his mother. That tiny baby is now 6 feet tall and I couldn’t be prouder of the man he’s becoming. William’s the quintessential oldest child. He’s hard-working, determined, driven, and always there to help out. He’s funny and witty and silly. He’s protective and watchful over those he loves. He’s smart, kind, and generous. He’s loyal and...

Loud and clear: the art of political dressing

Making a fashion statement has a controversial history. Emma Beddington looks at what happens when you wear your heart on your sleeveComment on the delightfully absurd spectacle of the Met Gala this year coalesced around the pointed image of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a gorgeously traditional white gown, the kind of thing a deep south debutante might wear, with “Tax the Rich” in a vast red scrawl on the rear. Was the Aurora James dress provocative or performative, just facile radical cosplay? C...

Now they had talked more over text t...

Is Facebook leading us on a journey to the metaverse?

Nick Clegg will on Monday set out the tech giant’s vision of a virtual world where you can work, shop and ‘live’. But the move is prompting new fears over privacyThe concept of the “metaverse” first came from the 1992 sci-fi novel Snow Crash as a place that people flee to escape a dangerous corporation-dominated world. It has since come to refer to a range of virtual experiences that have gained popularity during the pandemic – including video games such as Fortnite, non-fungible tokens or even ...

‘Oh my gosh, the kittens!’ How the pandemic unleashed bedlam in veterinary clinics

Staff attrition, high demand for appointments and enraged human clients have strained vet practices across the USEarly in the pandemic, Dr Monica Mansfield, a veterinarian based in Medway, Massachusetts, became haunted by a recurring nightmare.“There were these vulnerable kittens in my basement, and I forgot to feed them,” Mansfield recalls. “I’d wake up, terrified. ‘Oh my gosh, the kittens! Where are they?’ I felt like I was missing details and forgetting things that were critical to a case – t...

I was seeing a man for a few months. Why am I so heartbroken?

It may not be logical that your heart is broken but it’s important to let the feelings outThe question As soon as I started writing this letter I could feel the hot tears generating in their ducts. I’ve got great friends and family, but I need an outsider’s take.I was seeing a man, for a few months. This ended around eight weeks ago. He was unhappy living in this country and had plans to move even before we met, which he was always very open about, and I was aware the entire time that he was emo...
