ColourPop Talker & Shook Blotted Lip Reviews & Swatches

Talker ColourPop Talker Blotted Lip (2021) ($8.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, dusty coral with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency felt smooth, velvety, and lightweight with a thin consistency that was just the right side of thin (aka not clingy yet).

Lisa Eldridge Anjelica & Bianca Liquid Lurex Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Anjelica Lisa Eldridge Anjelica Liquid Lurex Eyeshadow ($27.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a darker, rosy peach base with lighter, almost gilded bronze pearl and faint sparkle throughout. It had opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, though it was more inclined to diffuse and blend out, so for higher coverage, it was best applied with a brush to the lid area in a thin, even layer. For sheerer coverage, where the sparkles in the finish became mo...

Phytosurgence Fervor Blush Balm Review & Swatches

Fervor Phytosurgence Fervor Skin Spark Blush Balm ($17.07 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep pink with warmer undertones and what seemed like a cooler overtone, as it sheered out and looked warmer on my arm but looked pinker and not quite as coral-like when applied to my cheeks. It had a natural finish that wasn’t dewy but not matte either–very “skin-like,” particularly as the product itself had a really seamless diffusion on my skin. The produc...

Violet Ida Miller Harris: A Very Unusual Violet Perfume

Violet Ida by Miller Harris was launched at the beginning of 2019. It is a violet fragrance, but very unusual.  With all my love for violets, I have never seen anything like this. The subtle note of bergamot shifts into a candy-lemon fragrance, reminiscent of both verbena and sugared lemon, and then into a delicious fresh carrot cake under a creamy glaze.

What Does It Take to Be a Great Artist?: An Aging Painter Reflects on His Creative Process & Why He Will Never Be a Picasso

What does it take to be an artist? In the short film above by Jakub Blank, artist Bill Blaine meditates on the question as he strolls around his home and studio and talks about his work. Blaine has aged into the realization that making art is what fulfills him, even though it probably won’t bring him immortal fame. “I’ve thought about this,” he says. “I would probably be a happier person if I were painting all the time.” Bloated egos belong to the young, and Blaine is glad to put the “absur...
