Danessa Myricks Medallion Colorfix Metallic Review & Swatches

Medallion Danessa Myricks Medallion Colorfix Metallic ($18.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a deeper, orange-red with moderate, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The shimmer was more noticeable when applied as a lip product as it looked more glowing as an eyeshadow and blush. It also looked redder and less coppery when I used it as a blush and eyeshadow, where it was a sheerer application with more blended edges. It had a smooth, lightweight con...

ColourPop Locket Down Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Locket Down ColourPop Locket Down 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($14.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a new, limited edition taupe-and-berry themed color story. It included five matte eyeshadows, three shimmery eyeshadows, and one pressed glitter shade. The matte eyeshadows performed well overall with a couple of shades being a little powdery, while the shimmers were on the drier side overall. The glitter was sheerer and drier, so it was hard to wo...

ColourPop Cafe de Paris & Cherry Liqueur Fresh Kiss Lip Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

Café de Paris ColourPop Café de Paris Fresh Kiss Lip Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a deep burgundy with strong, cool undertones–leaning pinker rather than browner–with a glossy, cream finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff in a single layer, which did not apply as evenly as desired. It seemed less even on my bottom lip than the top lip, but I think that could have just been an illusion based on lighting/angle. The texture was smoo...

ColourPop The Mandalorian Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

The Mandalorian ColourPop The Mandalorian 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($14.00 for 0.32 oz.) is the brand’s newest Star Wars tie-in collaboration. The palette included five matte eyeshadows with four shimmery shades, and it ran slightly cooler-toned overall–relative to the plethora of very warm-toned palettes that exist. One of the matte shades–Nevarro Sand–was too powdery, while one shimmer–Beskar Steel–was a little drier to work wit...

Key to accepting a difficult reality? Let go of judgments

Z is recording Bach. Fifteen minutes earlier he lost his music which is normal for him. When he was six years old his teacher could change a bowing pattern right before a performance and he’d remember just fine. Now, at 16, he can’t remember a bowing pattern even if he checks it right before he records. He knows that it’s because of his brain injury, and he tries to be patient with himself. But losing the music is more difficult. He gets angry at himself for how often he loses things. I tell ...

How to Shadow Box Like a Champ

Shadow boxing is a fundamental boxing skill. It provides an opportunity for boxers to fine-tune their technique and mentally prepare for a workout or fight. For non-boxers, shadow boxing can be an excellent warm-up for a workout or even a workout in and of itself — you’ll be amazed at how quickly it revs up your heart rate. This low-impact cardio can be done pretty much anywhere —the gym, your garage, a hotel room. You can even shadow box in the dark after you’ve rambled in the park. (Only real...

Chanel Or Baume Essentiel Review & Swatches

Or Chanel Or Baume Essentiel ($45.00 for 0.28 oz.) has a transparent, balmy base with barely-there, warm gold pearl and a dewy sheen. The texture was lightweight, emollient, and very balm-like–high slip but thin, spreadable, and glossy in its finish. It had very sheer coverage, as marketed, though the effect of the pearl was slightly more noticeable in person than it appeared in the photos I took. The finish was glossy and didn’t dry ...

Do you use eyeshadow quads on their own or paired with larger palettes?

Ich nahm die Pille gegen Regelschmerzen & wurde davon suizidal

Triggerwarnung: In diesem Artikel geht es unter anderem um Depression und Suizidgedanken. Das erste Mal, als Mariam*, 29, mit 16 die Anti-Baby-Pille verschrieben bekam, sollte sie ihr bei ihrer schmerzhaften, schweren Periode helfen. Und obwohl die Pille diese Beschwerden linderte (sie bekam einfach gar keine Tage mehr und litt demnach auch nicht mehr unter Schmerzen), waren ihre Auswirkungen auf Mariams geistige Gesundheit überwältigend. Mariam entwickelte Panikattacken, die sie über drei Mo...
