Dior Taupe Ispahan & Midnight Corolle Diorific Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Taupe Ispahan (076) Dior Taupe Ispahan (076) Diorific Lipstick ($40.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a subdued, darker reddish-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous, cream finish.

NARS High Profile Cheek Palette Review & Swatches

High Profile NARS High Profile Cheek Palette ($59.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a new, limited edition holiday cheek palette that includes six shades designed to have buildable coverage and layerable, luminous finishes.

ColourPop Girl Gang, Climax, Let's Play Lippie Stix Reviews & Swatches

Climax ColourPop Climax Lippie Stix ($7.00 for 0.0352 oz.) is a deep, bluish-purple with strong, cool undertones and a soft matte finish.

Danessa Myricks Exposed Colorfix Matte Review & Swatches

Exposed Danessa Myricks Exposed Colorfix Matte ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a muted, medium taupe-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It looked grayer and more like a true taupe when worn at higher coverage; the warmth was more noticeable whenever it was blended and sheered out a fair amount. The product had rich color payoff in a single layer, which was easy to spread about and blend as an eyeshadow and blush. The tex...

The One For Men Eau de Parfum Intense – An Unexpectedly Dark Neroli

I didn't expect to be writing that Dolce Gabanna's The One For Men Eau de Parfum Intense is a triumph! But, how many dark, inky neroli scents do you know? In its usual, raw presentation, neroli carries the sharp but creamy qualities of bergamot, the indolic but placated bite of tuberose, and a hint of grapefruit over a dash of bitter natural yoghurt, with some twigs thrown in. Classically, whe... Read full article: The One For Men Eau de Parfum Intense – An Unexpectedly Dark Neroli from Frag...

Warum ich trotz meiner sozialen Ängste zu Partys eingeladen werden will

Ablehnung ist ein unvermeidlicher Teil des Erwachsenseins, ähnlich wie das rechtzeitige Bezahlen von Rechnungen und die jährliche Steuererklärung. Niemand mag es, sich ausgeschlossen zu fühlen – schließlich brauchen wir Menschen das Gefühl von Gemeinschaft und sozialer Zugehörigkeit. Wenn du aber eine Sozialphobie hast, wird das Gefühl, ignoriert zu werden, zu einer lähmenden Kombination aus Unsicherheit und Depression. Ausgeschlossen zu werden, fühlt sich beschissen an.

What to Do If You Get Kicked in the Nards

One of the downsides of being a man is that our reproductive organs, i.e., our nards, hang outside of our bodies, leaving them vulnerable to impact. When your nards take a hit, it hurts. A lot.
