Giorgio Armani Four Hundred & Fighter Lip Power Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Four Hundred (400) Giorgio Armani Four Hundred (400) Lip Power Satin Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark ruby red with cooler undertones and a satin sheen. It was intensely pigmented in a single layer–not really buildable at all, as it was intended to be!–with a smooth, creamy consistency that was slightly thicker than other shades in the range (not in a bad way). The product applied evenly across my lips and “set” s...

Clarins Rosewood Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Rosewood (02) Clarins Rosewood (02) 4-Color Eyeshadow Palette ($43.00 for 0.1 oz.) includes all shimmer shades, though two were more satin and looked more “soft matte” once applied and blended out. All four shades were pigmented, blendable, and lasted for eight hours, though the brand claimed 12-hours, so that dragged the rating down of what would have been an A-rated quad otherwise. Ingredients ...

Glaminatrix Burlesque, Nectar, Sitting Pretty, Periwinkle, Portello Matte Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Burlesque Glaminatrix Burlesque Matte Eyeshadow ($7.30 for 0.064 oz.) is a deep, muted purple with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was soft, finely-milled, and almost cream-like with how silky-smooth it was, but there was a fair amount of excess product that kicked up in the pan, even with a gentle touch. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage with very little fallout when blended out on my skin. It laste...

What do you like about tinted moisturizer? What don't you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Tinted Moisturizer I think if I wasn’t blogging, I’d reach for it more often as part of a regular routine. I love the idea of just quickly applying and going about my day with a little bit of coverage to help even out my skin tone but not have the full effect of higher coverage foundation. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Chloé EDP vs Chloé EDP Naturelle

Sophie’s article on the new Chloé EDP Naturelle, a “100%-of-natural-origin” scent that represents a marketing landmark for commercial perfumery, aptly detailed that natural oils are included alongside synthetics lab-produced from natural starting points (like ambroxan from sage). From my perspective, despite the traditional synthetic inclusions that situate the scent in a halfway house betw...

Which Colors Are Best for Baby Clothes?

Did you know that advertisers in the early 20th-century marketed pink clothing to baby boys? Then, after World War II, pink became the color for baby girls and blue became the color for boys.

Are you unsure which colors to choose for your baby’s wardrobe? The following guide will explain why certain colors are popular ...

NARS Afterglow Blush Palette and Afterglow Lip Shine Gloss for Spring 2022

NARS Afterglow Blush Palette and the new Afterglow Lip Shine Gloss are early Spring 2022 releases that the brand launched at Sephora over the weekend. Afterglow Lip Shine Gloss appears to be replacing the current selection of NARS Lipglosses which were on sale at Ulta this Holiday season and also, only have one shade available at Sephora. I thought this sucked because I like the old gloss formula plus some of the old shades like Dolce Vita aren’t available in the new Afterglow Lip Shine Gloss....

4 Things to Avoid When Suffering from A Frozen Shoulder

If you don’t know, shoulder pain is often one of the most common injuries among athletes and office workers. The pain is usually around the front of your shoulder, above the collarbone, and below the neck. It will make stretching your arm difficult or even impossible. One possible cause of shoulder pain could be frozen shoulder syndrome. It usually occurs when the fluid around the shoulders becomes too cold and stiff, thus interfering with mobility in the surrounding tissues. As a resu...

Podcast #765: C.S. Lewis on Building Men With Chests

Like Plato, C.S. Lewis believed that the human soul was made up of three parts — the head (the rational, reason-driven part of you), the belly (your appetites and base instincts), and the chest (the seat of virtue-seeking sentiments and well-tuned emotions). In order for your head to make your decisions, particularly the decision to live a virtuous life, rather than your decisions being driven by your belly, the head needs the aid of the chest, of right feeling. A few months ago, we had Micha...

The person who got me through 2021: Fleabag helped me survive my mother’s death

I rewatched Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s monstrous and lovable creation after my mother died in lockdown. The show gave me space to live and grieveFleabag isn’t really the person who got me through 2021. To confess the truth (and now the Hot Priest is saying “Kneel!” in your head, isn’t he?), she also got me through 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017 and half of 2016, when the show first aired. It’s been an intense few years. Which is precisely why only a show about a self-sabotaging, black-humoured, grief-strick...
