Natasha Denona Baby Glam Micro Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Baby Glam Natasha Denona Baby Glam Micro Eyeshadow PaletteNatasha Denona Baby Glam Micro Eyeshadow Palette ($19.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a new, limited edition micro palette–three mini-sized pans in a plastic compact–that features three shades from the permanent (full-size) Glam palette.

Chicago has a few fake outs in our lurching from summer to autumn where dips in temps climb back up into balmy sunny weeks. But by October, fall has finally been properly summoned, as much perhaps by our collective witchery and occult anticipation of Halloween as by the wicked grins of candy fixated children and children at heart. Last year, my treat du jour amid more or less staying at home and ... Read full article: Tricky Horror Flicks and Perfume Treats: A Guide to Your Scented Spooky Autu...

MAC Spicy Pimienta & Jalea Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolours Reviews & Swatches

Spicy Pimienta MAC Spicy Pimenta Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ($21.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a deep plum with subtle, warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly across my lips and didn’t emphasize my lip lines. The texture was smooth, fluid, and very spreadable to the point where I found it necessary to remove some product at the edge of the tube prior to applying. It drie...

Perfumed Horoscope: October 18 - October 24

  If at this point in time we have become used to being slightly clueless and avoiding big issues, this spell now slowly but surely will break. We will have to get out of our comfort zone of not saying or doing anything that is somehow tangible and value-related.

There are som...
