ColourPop Plum & Get It Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Plum and Get It ColourPop Plum and Get It Pressed Powder Shadow Quad ($9.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a plummy color story that featured two shimmer shades and two matte shades. All four shades had semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation paired with soft, blendable textures that were fairly easy to work with; one shimmer was too emollient, so it did not go on as evenly as it could have. This quad is one of six in a holiday vault, though ColourPop s...

A Touch of Old Alchemy Books in Xerjoff CASAFUTURA

What do you think when someone says "90s perfumes?" From today's perspective, those fragrances can be seen as a bit old and outdated. But for me, they are the real jewels of perfumery, the fragrances I love the most.  What if you could create the best of the 90s, like a magician imagining a modern yet very classy style. We'd use the best of woods and spices, some powdery spells, and voilà; ... Read full article: A Touch of Old Alchemy Books in Xerjoff CASAFUTURA from Fragrantica Perfumes and ...

Phytosurgence Swelter Blush Balm Review & Swatches

Swelter Phytosurgence Swelter Skin Spark Blush Balm ($17.07 for 0.14 oz.) is a rich, reddish-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a natural finish. It was richly pigmented to the point where one needed the smallest amount to achieve medium coverage, which was easily sheered out and diffused along the edges for a seamless layer of color on cheeks. The texture was lightweight, creamy, and emollient without being too slippery, so I did...

Clive Christian Matsukita – Jasmine Tea Smoked Over Birch

Clive Christian’s 2021 Matsukita is probably the most full-bodied, rich, and satisfying tea-based fragrance I’ve smelled. Ignore the notes for a moment, as this scent isn’t built in the tradition of classic perfumery style archetypes (fougère/chypre etc.) but instead feels like a more contemporary vision of a real-world experience condensed and bottled.  Most tea fragrances in the short h...

Amazons Das Rad der Zeit: Endlich Diversity in einer Fantasy-Serie

Gerade sind alle Augen auf Amazons Das Rad der Zeit gerichtet. Zum Teil, weil die Serie als neues Game of Thrones gilt, und auch, weil es die aufwendigste Serie ist, die Amazon je produziert hat – vor allem aber, weil die Hauptrollen (im Gegensatz zu anderen Fantasy-Shows!) divers besetzt sind. Diverses Casting in Fantasy-Serien lässt noch immer mehr auf sich warten als in anderen Genres; echte Repräsentation sucht man vielerorts vergebens. Verglichen mit den beinahe ausschließlich weißen Darste...

How Bad Managers Can Become Good Managers

The pandemic has the ability to create good managers out of bad ones Image Credit: So would you say that you are a good manager or a bad manager? If, somewhat oddly, you answered that you are a bad manager, I may have some good news for you. As we are all very much aware, the past year has been completely upside down. However, despite creating a great deal of uncertainty about what everyone should be doing and making the job of being a manager that much harder, it may ...

OMBRE LEATHER Tom Ford: EDP vs Parfum

I have to admit that Ombré Leather is my first safe choice for a present for men, especially if I don't really know a person's perfume experience. I also recommend this fragrance to young people with almost no exposure or interest in perfumery, it is that safe. Being likable for many doesn't diminish its value as a well-done and very recognizable, i.e. unique, perfume. The magic is that Ombré Le...

The seven types of rest: I spent a week trying them all. Could they help end my exhaustion?

When we feel extreme fatigue most of us focus on sleep problems. But proper relaxation takes many forms. I spent a week exploring what really works“Are you the most tired you can ever remember being?” asks a friend. Well, yes. I have it easy – my caring responsibilities are limited and my work is physically undemanding and very low stakes – but I am wrecked. The brain fog, tearful confusion and deep lethargy I feel seems near universal. A viral tweet from February asked: “Just to confirm … every...
