Chanel Or Ivoire Illuminating Fluid Review & Swatches

Or Ivoire Chanel Or Ivoire Fluide Enlumineur ($48.00 for 1.0 fl. oz.) is a light-medium gold with warmer, peachier undertones and a pearly sheen. It is supposed to be something that can be applied “all over” or used as a standalone highlighter on the high points of the face.

Sunday Firesides: The Upwards Fall of Adulthood

The age-old story of Adam and Eve can be read on a variety of levels. One of the most interesting is as a metaphor for maturation. In the beginning, the pair are innocent, like children. With minimal effort on their part, and little awareness of how it happens, all of their needs are met. It’s girls who begin puberty first, and it’s Eve who is first drawn to the fruit from the tree of knowledge. Adam, as boys often are in early adolescence, is at first oblivious to the fruit’s enticement...

The Beginning of something special for Pakistan Cricket

It is not the morning after, two days have passed, and it still doesn't feel right that Pakistan's T20 World Cup campaign is over. This World Cup seemed like it was ours, and that is why it hurts even more. One could have been angry had the team played badly, had the batting collapsed, had Pakistan just not turned up. But they did, and they did everything right for the most part. The match seemed to be in the bag; till some brilliance from the other side that just took it away, leav...

Do you rotate through your products in a particular way?

Not really! I keep some go-to cheek products in my vanity drawer, and I’ll move some out if I haven’t used them often during the year so I can move a few new(er) ones in. Otherwise, it’s mostly just new-new-new. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

The Chinese perfume sector must be one of the lucky ones that experienced positive growth in recent years, even more so during the Covid-19 pandemic.

"The form-fitting dresses and retro color palette that Sinema favors are a way of broadcasting her bona fides as a middle-class politician and thus someone in step with middle-class values."

"One might laugh at how literal this sounds as political stagecraft, but consider that almost all people in this country think of themselves as middle class, regardless of how much (or little) money they have. It is our cultural default, and we see it as normative. We use 'middle-class' interchangeably with other powerful nationalist signifiers like 'citizen,' 'voter' and 'American.' And, though my progressive comrades may balk at this comparison, if you compare Sinema to some of Congress’s best...

Crooks, creeps and indecent proposals: Emily Ratajkowski on being paid to hang out with rich men

When she landed in LA, aged 19, the model, actor and writer was plunged into a world where wealthy men were desperate to be seen with women like her. At what cost?To be paid $25,000 to show up to an event was the most ridiculous thing I’d ever heard. In 2014 my manager at the time, Evan, informed me that the billionaire financier behind The Wolf of Wall Street was offering to pay me that much to go to the Super Bowl with him. He explained that this person, Jho Low, “just liked to have famous men...
