Guerlain Rosewood Beige & Milky Beige Rouge G Velvet Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Rosewood Beige (258) Guerlain Rosewood Beige (258) Rouge G Luxurious Velvet Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deeper, more muted red-coral with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish.

ColourPop Pressed, Venus Slipper, U Grow Girl Colour Stix Reviews & Swatches

Pressed ColourPop Pressed Metallic Colour Stix ($6.00 for 0.023 oz.) is a brighter, medium berry with cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied fairly evenly, though it was a thinner, slightly clingier formula so it wasn’t as comfortable to apply and to layer up on the lid (but was more comfortable as an eyeliner). It lasted for seven hours before creasing on me.FURTHER READING: ...

‘Email is a zombie that keeps rising from the dead’: the endless pursuit of Inbox Zero

As emails loom omnipresent in our connected lives, is the quest for an empty inbox a noble pursuit or an unwinnable war?Last week, I asked my Twitter followers about their email inboxes.Author Mohammed Massoud Morsi likened his to a “Kalashnikov on semi-automatic…Nudge, Nudge, Nudge. Nudge. Nudge, Nudge.” Human rights lawyer Diana Sayed replied that hers functions as a to-do list that is emptied on the regular.

Danessa Myricks Olive You Colorfix Matte Review & Swatches

Olive You Danessa Myricks Olive You Colorfix MatteDanessa Myricks Olive You Colorfix Matte ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a light-medium olive with warmer undertones and a matte finish. The texture seemed slightly more emollient, which made it easier to blend than other shades but made it slightly more prone to sheering out.

There could be a third option, but it is not clear yet. Since it coincides with the New Moon (Oct 6th), the keyword is initiate, initiate, initiate.
