NARS Dolce Vita Unwrapped Mini Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Dolce Vita NARS Dolce Vita Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($25.00 for 0.12 oz.) included four shimmery eyeshadows and two mattes housed in an ultra-compact palette (some might be surprised at just how mini this palette really is). The top row of shimmers was excellent–pigmented, blendable, and luxuriously smooth–while the bottom row was drier with the mattes being particularly thin, sheerer, and dustier. Ingredients ...

ColourPop x NBA Miami Heat Liv It Up Eyeliner Duo Review & Swatches

Liv It Up ColourPop Liv It Up Crème Gel Liner Duo ($14.00 for 0.02 oz.) includes two twist-up eyeliners in metallic copper and matte, deep copper. I had issues with the metallic shade falling out of the holder entirely, so keep that in mind as you read through this review! The matte copper hue was more unique and decent enough to work with, though not without its issues. Ingredients ...

Lisa Eldridge Velvet Petal & Velvet Cinnabar True Velvet Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Velvet Petal Lisa Eldridge Velvet Petal True Velvet Lipstick Colour ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep, rosy mauve with subtle, warm undertones and a soft matte finish. It delivered opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without catching on imperfections or settling noticeably into my deeper lip lines (just in the close-up could I see the smallest amount). It had a velvety consistency tha...

Sephora Cappuccino, Clubbing Stilettos, Fresh Mint, Black Lace Contour Eye Pencils Reviews & Swatches (2021)

Cappuccino (12) Sephora Cappuccino (12) 12-Hour Contour Eyeliner Pencil (2021) ($11.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium, warmer brown base with flecks of dark gold sparkle throughout. The texture seemed smooth enough, despite the higher amount of sparkle in it, but it had to be layered and applied in shorter, more overlapping strokes in order to get higher coverage. In a single pass, it was more semi-sheer with unevenness in coverage but al...

Kilian Travel Spray Discovery Set Returns for Holiday 2021 And You Need It

I am beyond excited that the Kilian Paris Travel Spray Discovery Set has returned to for the Holiday 2021 season and truly, I call it a must-have. I purchased the Kilian Travel Spray Discovery Set when it was originally introduced last year and that set sold out SUPER fly fast even before the Sephora Holiday Savings Event happened. It’s truly a great way to discover some of Kilian’s best-loved fragrances like Love, Don’t Be Shy. Love, Don’t Be Shy has been a fond favorite of mine...

Top Tips to Help You Buy the Best Contact Lenses

As you may already be aware, contact lenses are high-tech medical gadgets that people wear when they have problems such as presbyopia, nearsightedness, astigmatism, farsightedness, or when they intend to treat their eyes after injury. Remember, you should always be concerned about the health and safety of your eyes because it is one of the most vital body senses and organs.

A Place for Everything (Including Certain Kinds of Work)

Aimee Mann: ‘Any woman my age is traumatised by growing up in the 60s and 70s’

As she releases an album inspired by Girl, Interrupted, the US indie icon reveals how a childhood kidnapping and her repressive southern childhood left her with PTSDIn Los Angeles, it’s early and overcast. “It has that six-in-the-morning feel,” says Aimee Mann, eternally droll, from a home office wallpapered in fruity foliage. “So it’s been hard to get going.” Drab weather demands good knitwear, and Mann has paired thick-rimmed round glasses the size of ashtrays with a brown woollen sweater vest...

How to Turn a Plastic Jug Into a Lantern

Headlamps give you a focused beam of light. Lanterns disperse light to illuminate a broader area. If you have the latter, and want the ambient lighting effect of the former, you can use a headlamp to create a lantern if you have a plastic water or milk jug on hand. It’s a super simple camping trick that can give you the lantern-like glow you’re looking for. Put out a water or milk jug. If the jug had milk in it, rinse it out, and refill the jug with water. Remove the label. Put the headlamp ...

Huda Beauty Light Glow Obsessions Mini Face Palette Review & Swatches

Light Huda Beauty Light Mini Glow Obsessions Face Palette ($29.00 for 0.22 oz.) includes two gold highlighters, a pale pink highlighting blush, and a light copper highlighter. The texture of the formula was where the palette fell short; it was firmer, denser, and thicker overall, which made it harder to pick up product evenly with a brush. In order to do so, I typically had to use my brush to push upward or jab a little to get produc...

What kind of mascara wand do you prefer?

I like larger, denser wands that aren’t as plastic-heavy, mostly because I find harder, sparser plastic wands make it easier for me to over-apply and get clumpier lashes sometimes. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Aprons Are Fabulous

Nine years ago I suggested wearing an apron to save your clothes. It bears repeating, because cooking at home and doing all sorts of other home projects is on the rise because many more people are working from home these days.  I spend a lot of time in the kitchen because I enjoy cooking from scratch. Some of my friends and clients change into “cooking clothes”, but I stay in my normal clothes, which includes white tops and jeans. I do, however, wear a large apron that covers most of the front o...

Let’s revisit the Netherlands’ win over England at the 2009 T20 World Cup and in particular the insanely chaotic final over from Stuart Broad

Our main memory of the Netherlands’ win over England at the 2009 T20 World Cup is that the final over was utter madness. Let’s take a look back and see whether that was really the case. (Spoiler: It absolutely was.) 2009 is a funny old time when it comes to limited overs cricket – somehow both fairly recent and also long ago. It’s strange to think that several members of England’s current white ball teams were also involved back when when there was a real bone-deep haplessness about those s...

DIY Nails with Color Street

I have been having so much fun doing my own nails lately. The reason I love doing them so much is because of my recent obsession with Color Street. If you haven’t heard of Color Street, let me fill you in. Color Street is a nail polish strip beauty brand. I would like to say that they are the innovator of nail polish strips, not only because they were originally created in 1988, but because they are far superior to any other nail polish strip. I have tried quite a few nail polish strips, and non...
