ColourPop Oh That Jazz Super Shock Shadow Duo Review & Swatches

Oh That Jazz ColourPop Oh That Jazz Super Shock Shadow Duo ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) includes cream eyeshadows in light, golden bronze and a sparkling black. I wish ColourPop would utilize the Super Shock Shadow for more “sparkle over matte” kind of formulas, because it works well for them. Both eyeshadows were smooth, emollient, blendable, and long-wearing with full color coverage. Ingredients ...

ColourPop Brandy & Cabaret Fresh Kiss Lip Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

Brandy ColourPop Brandy Fresh Kiss Lip Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a darker pink with moderate, warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied fairly evenly but had light streaking along the edges of my lips. I found it was better to apply less product and end up with more semi-opaque coverage as the applicator picked up more product than necessary for an even layer on to...

Ace Beaute 15-Pan Eyeshadow Palette Swatches (Reformulation)

Ace Beaute recently reformulated their eyeshadows, and though I swatched the original formula, I never ended up reviewing it (I wasn’t super happy with the original performance and had higher priority things to review, so they just kept falling to the end of my review queue, so-to-speak). Here are swatches of three of their reformulated 15-pan palettes! Ace Beaute: Tropical Vibes, Oceanic, Flair G...

Word of the week: Revenge dress

Revenge dress was all over the celebrity/entertainment news last week, capping a year notable for its revenge compounds. On November 8, photos from the set of Season 5 of the Netflix series The Crown showed actress Elizabeth Debicki wearing a copy of the clinging, shoulder-baring black silk dress worn by the princess to a 1994 dinner at the Serpentine Gallery in London. Elizabeth Debicki (left) in The Crown, wearing a copy of the dress worn by Diana, Princess of Wales, in 1994 (right...

Goodbye Logic+Emotion, Hello Armano Design Group

This will be the last blog post I'll write on this Website. Let me take a step back. In February of 2006, before TikTok, Snap, Facebook, and Twitter, there was a form of social media built on the open Web where like-minded people found others like them, (as well as audiences). They were called blogs.  I picked a weekend during this coldest of months in Chicago to dig into what it would take to learn more about this space. I was intrigued by the potential and had become a reader of blogs mys...

This Too Shall Pass

In my younger years, I found myself working at a digital agency during the height of the dotcom bubble burst. This was the early 2000s. We closed offices, let people go and grappled with the fact that the economy we helped build in code seemed to crumble before our very eyes. It was humbling, to say the least. During these same years, we also endured 9/11 and on a personal front, we had just brought two new lives into this world—a world in transition and turmoil. The uncertainty was palpable....

Investing In The Future Is Investing In Yourself

Recently, I spent an hour with a colleague who is just starting out in his career and wanted to learn more about what I do, how I do it and how he can apply that knowledge to his exploration of a career path. If you have the opportunity to have conversations like these—you should take them. First, because if your professional life has been good to you (and mine has) you have an obligation to pay it forward, especially to those who will build the future. Secondly, it's not just an investment ...

The Mentor / Mentee Value Exchange

Originally posted on David by Design For the past five years or so, I have been informally mentoring people. I’m happy to report that some of the earliest are ridiculously successful and I still keep in touch. I’m also a mentee to a few people I look up to. Here’s what I’ve learned so far: Understand Your Motivation Before You Become A Mentor or Mentee You’re entering an informal agreeme n t and you should know what’s motivating you and clearly articulate that to the other person. In my case,...

Six Thoughts On Career Transition

This past week I “celebrated” a year of career transition. It seems like a strange thing to celebrat e  as I didn’t find career transition, it found me. But unless you’re one of those rare creatures in life where everything goes according to plan — a career transition is just like one of any other’s life curveballs like the end of a relationship, or an accident, or maybe getting some news from the doctor that impacts your health and lifestyle. During this time, I have kept busy with contract w...

A Year of Personal Disruption

On an evening in March (you know, the night), I knew something had changed significantly but, like many others, couldn't see past the fog of shock. At the time, I was watching in real-time as the NBA canceled games, the government canceled flights, and Tom Hanks canceled our collective Covid bubble—and despite what was unfolding before my very eyes, my life looked relatively stable. I had recently celebrated a decade with the same employer, and I was living comfortably with my fiancé—both my b...

An Open Letter To My Younger Self

Hi, it's me.  You don't know me, but in time you will. I have the benefit of time and experience on my side and wanted to share some thoughts with you if you're willing to listen. If you receive this, please know that it comes from a good place.  Let's talk about that time in high school when you ran with the cool kids for a short while before they rejected you. What they rejected was how hard you were trying to be something that you weren't. You'd think this experience would have taught you...

What They Don't Tell You About Life "In-Between"

It's been just over three months since I've had a place of full-time employment to call home. As I previously mentioned, this has been a first-time experience having gone from one professional opportunity to another without much of a break in between. Like much in life, there always seems to be discrepancies between what you envision vs. how reality plays out. If I am really honest—life in the "in-between," as I like to call it, is a strangely ambiguous mixed bag filled with both blessings and c...

On Rising Tides: Unusual Watery Scents

Poorly executed aquatic fragrances are a particularly unpleasant subset of the fragrance market. They’re ubiquitous and offensive, and seemingly the enduring trend for watery notes is one which isn’t quite ready to die. On the other hand though, a fine example of a watery fragrance can be refreshing, uplifting, soothing and is generally a balm for the soul. Water notes can take many interest...

How To Honor a Pregnancy Loss

If you’ve experienced the loss of a pregnancy, you know that it can be difficult to find ways to remember your lost loved one. Sure, it’s easy to buy or make something like a stuffed animal, but it can be more difficult to figure out how to honor the life that could have been if only the pregnancy had progressed normally. It can be hard to help your other children deal with the emotions of a pregnancy loss as well. Here are some tips on how to honor your pregnancy loss appropriately. ...

Wenn ein:e Partner:in in einer gleichgeschlechtlichen Beziehung mehr verdient

„Früher gab ich rund zwei Euro für eine Packung mit sechs Eiern aus, während die einzige Marke, die sie kaufte, etwa vier Euro kostete“, erzählt die 28-jährige Annie*. Sie ist Finanz-Managerin und verdient etwas weniger als zwei Drittel von dem, was ihre Partnerin Zara* einnimmt. Das Einkommensgefälle zwischen diesem Paar hat während ihrer zweijährigen Beziehung zu Unbehagen und Gefühlen der Unzulänglichkeit geführt.

Under the Egyptian Sun: Jardins de la Bargamote

What Egyptian aromas do tourists bring from this country as souvenirs? Usually these are inexpensive copies and clones of popular fragrances in oil form, which can be used to train olfactive memory, or attars on the theme of natural flowers and spices. I had a chance to try some of them, and all that can be said about them is that they smell and last. Everything is simple: Tourists want cheap souv...

Don’t believe everything you read: the pleasures and perils of TV subtitles

Young people are increasingly watching television with the captions on. But the accuracy of the on-screen text can leave a lot to be desired. Just ask Benedict Couple Beer Batch …Name: Subtitles.Age: During the silent movie era “intertitles” or “title cards”, boxes of text between film sequences, were used in lieu of speech, so that viewers had some idea of what was going on.

Why You Should Hire Based on Your Business Strategy, Not Job Titles

There’s no one way to hire great talent and using the same strategies for all the positions you need to fill will result in a lackluster team. If you’re looking to build a team with members with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and skill sets, look beyond the job title. Let’s be honest, job titles aren’t great evidence of a candidate’s effectiveness. Instead focus on the candidate’s skills, experiences, and accomplishments to understand what they bring to the table. Job titles can be mislead...
