MAC Pink Roses, Swoon for Blooms, Rhythm 'n' Roses Powder Kiss Liquid Lipcolours Reviews & Swatches

Pink Roses MAC Pink Roses Powder Kiss Liquid Lipcolour ($27.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a deep, pinky-mauve with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. The texture was smooth, velvety, and spreadable with more of a whipped, mousse-feel.

Fenty Beauty Sidechick Liquid Killawatt Review & Swatches

Sidechick Fenty Beauty Sidechick Liquid Killawatt Fluid Freestyle Highlighter ($28.00 for 0.5 oz.) is a pale white gold with a sparkling sheen. This was the most “glittery” of the shades, though the size of the sparkle was certainly finer than a typical sparkly highlighter. I think the reason the sparkles ended up appearing more visible to the eye was in contrast to the finer pearl as well as to the overall sheerness of the base, so t...

Do you prefer gold or silver in your color cosmetics?

I definitely prefer and reach for gold-leaning products over silver-leaning products. I like dirty golds, like pewter, or silvery-taupes, but pure silver it’s not a color I gravitate toward. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

"In one of her first moves, Ms. Mirabella had the red walls of Vreeland’s office repainted in shades of beige — her favorite color."

"She jettisoned Elizabeth Taylor and Cher from the cover of Vogue in favor of models such as Lauren Hutton, Patti Hansen and Lisa Taylor, who wore little makeup and had natural, unfussy hairstyles. Hutton’s gaptoothed smile replaced the closemouthed gaze and white eyeliner of Vogue models of the 1960s. 'It was make-believe, the wilder shores of love,' Ms. Mirabella said of the magazine she inherited from Vreeland. 'I was a great fan of hers, and I followed her around like a bird dog. But when I ...

An auspicious landmark in any relationship, but especially with the new boyfriend still living at home with his parents and me 200 miles away in thin-walled student digs with seven sharp-eared housemates. Such was the allure of privacy, I didn’t ask any questions. “My mate’s got a place in north Wales we can have for...
