ColourPop Over the Cocoon Palette Review & Swatches

Over the Cocoon ColourPop Over the Cocoon 5-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) includes two shimmery shades and three matte shades across a pink/red color story.

ColourPop Fly Away Palette Review & Swatches

Fly Away ColourPop Fly Away 5-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) includes two shimmery eyeshadows with three matte eyeshadows. It was green-leaning, though supported by two more neutral tones. All five shades were semi-opaque to opaque in coverage, blendable, and wore for eight hours on me. They performed consistently with ColourPop’s eyeshadow formula. This palette is one of five in a holiday vault, though ColourPop sai...

Makeup by Mario Nikki & Alicia Ultra Suede Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Nikki Makeup by Mario Nikki Ultra Suede Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a soft, medium orange-copper with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff in a single stroke, and the texture glided on better than most shades in the range, so it was more comfortable to apply and to wear while still staying in place and not feathering/sliding around. The texture was lightly velvety, firmer in the tube but not ov...

With their modern approach, they attracted an exclusive celebrity clientele, and ma... Read full article: Molton Brown Celebrates 50 Years of Their Salon With a Limited Edition For the Ho...

What leaders can learn from Shopify founder Tobias Lütke, who turned his side hustle into a platform powering more than 1 million businesses

Tobias Lütke thinks of trust like a battery. It starts at 50% when he meets someone, and then every interaction charges or depletes the battery a little bit.Lucas Jackson/Reuters; Marianne Ayala/Insider Tobi Lütke created Shopify after businesses became interested in the infrastructure of his site.  He uses a "fly on the wall" technique to learn, piecing bits of information together like a puzzle.  He deconstructs his decisions to see the assumptions he made to better understand his choice.  ...

Life Lessons I Learned From Coach K

This article originally appeared in Inc. Over the course of his long career, Mike Krzyzewski has passed along his wisdom to hundreds of college and Olympic basketball stars. I am not one of them.

Podcast #760: Cormac McCarthy, The Road, and Carrying the Fire

Once a year, I read The Road by Cormac McCarthy. It’s a cathartic annual ritual for me. What is it about this novel that has such an impact on my soul and those of other readers? Who is the man who wrote it, and what was he trying to do with this story of a father and son struggling to survive in a post-apocalyptic landscape? For answers to these questions, I decided to talk to a foremost expert on McCarthy’s work, as well as the literature of the American West in general. His name is Steven ...

Ich habe mir Instagrams „Bixie“-Cut schneiden lassen

Im zarten Alter von 14 Jahren beging ich die ultimative Beauty-Sünde: Entgegen des Rats der Haarstylist:innen meines Vertrauens ließ ich mir einen Pixie-Cut à la Anna in O.C., Californiaverpassen. Im Gegensatz zu anderen O.C.-Charakteren – wie die einschüchternd hübsche Summer oder die traurige, ultraschlanke Marissa – schien mir der Look der lustigen, lockeren Anna zumindest nicht unnachahmbar vor. Sie trug immer lässige Pullunder und klopfte sarkastische Sprüche, und das alles mit einem süßen,...

Phytosurgence Cosmic Cinders Spectral Shine Radiance Balm Review & Swatches

Cosmic Cinders Phytosurgence Cosmic Cinders Spectral Shine Radiance Balm ($26.01 for 0.25 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with moderate, warm undertones and a gentle sheen. It had more opaque color coverage that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease. I found it worked as well on top of a more emollient/dewier base (like La Mer The Soft Fluid) but tended to look a little cakey when applied on top of a more matte foundation...

The urinary leash: how the death of public toilets traps and trammels us all

Britain has lost an estimated 50% of its public toilets in the past 10 years. This is a problem for everyone, and for some it is so acute that they are either dehydrating before going out or not leaving home at allFor about an hour and a half before she finishes work and gets the bus home, Jacqui won’t eat or drink anything. Once, while waiting at the bus stop, and suddenly needing the loo, she had to head to the other end of town; the public toilets nearby had closed. She didn’t make it in time...

6 mögliche Auslöser für deine Unterleibsschmerzen

Vielen von uns kommt er bekannt vor, der pochende, stechende, vielleicht dumpfe Schmerz im Unterleib zu bestimmten Zeiten im Menstruationszyklus. Oft fällt dieser Schmerz mit der Periode zusammen, und wenn wir Glück haben, lässt er sich mit einer Wärmflasche oder Schmerztablette schnell wieder besänftigen. Aber was, wenn das mal nicht funktioniert? In manchen Fällen können diese Krämpfe nämlich auf etwas anderes als PMS oder die Periode hinweisen.  Um besser zu verstehen, was uns unsere Unterle...

A moment that changed me: when my beloved teacher taught us about mortal sin

I had impressed Mr Priamo with my passion for winning. In questioning his certainty I learned the eternal value of doubt and ambiguityEven before I entered his class, I knew Mr Priamo, the sixth-grade teacher at my Catholic elementary school, as the small, powerfully built man who strutted the hallways, and especially the gymnasium, with the ease of an athletic star. In golf shirts and trousers that pulled too tight at the rear, he appeared to be in perpetual motion – an illusion enhanced by his...
