LORAC Mystic Oak Mini PRO Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Mystic Oak LORAC Mystic Oak Mini PRO Eyeshadow Palette ($15.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a warm-toned, slightly desaturated neutral color story that included two matte eyeshadows and four shimmery eyeshadows. Two of the shimmers were thicker/chunkier, so they would be better suited for someone who uses fingertips or a dampened brush to apply their shimmers, while the other four eyeshadows were easy to work with.

Phytosurgence Singe Blush Balm Review & Swatches

Singe Phytosurgence Singe Skin Spark Blush Balm ($17.07 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark coral with moderate, warm undertones. I noticed that the base seemed warmer when sheered out, though it looked a little pinker and closer to the color in the jar on my cheeks. The texture was lightweight, creamy, and blendable, which made it more forgiving and easy to work with using fingertips or a brush. The product was quite pigmented, as markete...

Makeup by Mario Kate & Brielle Ultra Suede Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Kate Makeup by Mario Kate Ultra Suede Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a dusty, medium-dark coral with moderate, warm undertones and a soft matte finish. The lipstick had a firmer feel in the tube, which was better applied in shorter, overlapping strokes rather than a single pass as it didn’t have enough glide to do so. It was very lightweight and thin–almost weightless to me–on my lips, but it was flexible enough to be comfortable ...

There’s no question but that artifici...

There’s no question but that artificial intelligence now has a firm footing in strategic decision-making processes in major firms. When I wrote two blogs on big data back in 2015, less than 10% of large firms had adopted AI decision-making. Today, more than 80% of large companies make use of AI. Indeed, major firms are moving far beyond AI process automation into its use to augment decision-making processes at all levels, including top management. But many, perhaps most firms are still strugglin...

50 Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Men

What do you put in a man’s stocking? Stocking stuffers often get overlooked in the rush to see the bigger gifts Santa’s left. But they’re one of my favorite parts of Christmas. There’s something so fun about little gifts small enough to be stuffed in a giant sock. Yet once a man ages out of the novelty toys of his youth, it can be hard to know how to fill his stocking with things that are both neat and useful. For that reason, we’ve created this guide that includes 50 stocking stuffers a father...

Glennon Doyle: ‘So many women feel caged by gender, sexuality, religion’

Glennon Doyle’s memoir inspired Adele – but do we all need to be ‘untamed’?The marriage wasn’t unbearable, but it didn’t feel right any more. The lightbulb moment came when she realised she needed to think about what she truly wanted, rather than about what society had trained her to think she wanted. Also, she became aware that remaining in an unhappy marriage meant she wasn’t being the parent she wanted to be: following her heart would cause heartbreak to her family now, but it had a noble pur...

Lulu Guinness: ‘I am basically a recluse who likes people’

Designer Lulu Guinness moved to a gothic folly in the sticks in lockdown to restart her life. Now she talks about her brother’s tragic death, and how she has learned to live with her own depressionI’ve had 30 years of trying to do lots of things at once. Now I want to stand and stare a bit more,” says Lulu Guinness from the splendid isolation of her gothic folly in deepest Gloucestershire. “Lockdown also taught me how much you can get done from your phone.” It was during the pandemic that Guinne...

‘I took a DNA test and found a new family’: the drama and joy of meeting long-lost relatives

After years of searching, DNA tests, social media and old-fashioned tenacity have played crucial roles in reuniting fractured families. Here, six people tell their storiesI used to go by Larecia Whitehead, I changed my second name to Buford – my real father’s name – when a DNA test led us to each other after decades apart. For most of my childhood, Mum told me another guy was my father, a man I never knew and who left us when I could barely walk or talk. I was never convinced. Then, at 15, a gir...

My mother’s secrets weigh too heavily on our relationship

There’s no reason to carry the weight of your mother’s decisions. You need to take control of her secrets by writing them down in orderThe dilemma I have kept secrets for my mother for many years. She has had several extramarital affairs and I am the only one who knows about these. She has never held back in telling me about her feelings for the people she has been involved with. She despises my father and tells me whenever we meet of his failings and of her disappointments in life. She discusse...
