Pat McGrath Deep Space Divinity Celestial Odyssey Luxe Quad Review & Swatches

Deep Space Divinity Pat McGrath Deep Space Divinity Celestial Odyssey Luxe Quad ($54.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a new, limited edition smokier, neutral quad that included three metallic eyeshadows and one matte eyeshadow. All four shades were pigmented, while the matte needed to be built up slightly and the duochrome shimmer was more emollient so it didn’t apply as easily as the brand’s metallic eyeshadows typically do. Ingredients ...

What do you like about liquid concealer? What don't you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Liquid Concealer Liquid concealer can be really versatile as it sheers out, builds up, and tends to play well with drier skin, so it can work for concealer acne, post-acne, under the eyes, etc. Sometimes, though, they can take awhile to dry down, so they may be more prone to settling into fine lines as they dry down, so they have to be smoothed back out as they develop a bit of tackiness. — Christine Jo...

MAC Spicy Pimenton & Paprika Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolours Reviews & Swatches

Spicy Pimenton MAC Spicy Pimenton Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ($21.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark orange with moderate, warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. The consistency was slightly thicker and harder to work with, which resulted in product more inclined to settle into my deeper lip lines and had some streaking along the edges. It had mostly opaque color coverage that lasted well for seven hours but faded unevenl...

Podcast #748: Time Management for Mortals

A lot of ink has been spilled on time management and productivity hacking; you can find endless tips on how to master your workflow, tame your inbox, slay your to-do list. Far less examined, however, is the philosophy that underlies these strategies. My guest says that when you do examine that philosophy, you find it doesn’t actually align with lived experience.

The Case for ‘Agrestic’ Perfumes

Perfume categorization: it’s trivial to some, everything to others. But most of us know at least a couple fragrances which seem to defy categorization, and it’s those perfumes which capture our attention and leave us bickering over semantics when we attempt to describe them. Recently, I found myself in need of a new term to describe some scents in my collection which don’t fit in any relat...

Google CEO says companies that fail to go carbon-free will lose the talent war

Google CEO Sundar Pichai. Beck Diefenbach/Reuters Google wants to be the first Big Tech giant to run entirely on clean energy sources 24 hours a day. But going carbon-free isn't just about climate change, CEO Sundar Pichai told Bloomberg - it benefits recruiting too. He said Gen Z won't want "to work for a company which they feel is polluting."

Do you find yourself more drawn to old favorites or whatever you have that is new?

I definitely gravitate toward what is new.

Warum ich jetzt meine Ziele entsprechend den Mondzyklen setze

Meine Mutter sagte mir schon sehr früh, dass alles zur richtigen Zeit passiert und ich die Kontrolle loslassen und stattdessen darauf vertrauen soll. Da sie mit einer Tochter gesegnet ist, die sehr ehrgeizig ist und eine unendliche Leidenschaft für das Setzen von Zielen, To-do-Listen und das Abhaken von Aufgaben hat, muss sie damals geahnt haben, dass uns eine unterhaltsame Reise bevorstand. Was sie aber nicht hätte kommen sehen, waren die letzten zwei Jahre. Zu versuchen, eine globale Pandemie ...
