Glaminatrix Euphoria, Candy Egg, Soda Pop, Cotton Candy, Nymph Foiled Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Euphoria Glaminatrix Euphoria Foiled Eyeshadow ($8.04 for 0.07 oz.) has a darker, almost orange-copper base with slight translucenty paired with copper-to-pink shifting sparkle. It had mostly opaque, buildable color coverage with a more loosely-pressed consistency that had light fallout when I used a dry brush to apply. I’d recommend using a dampened brush or a fingertip to get the smoothest application with the least fallout. It stay...

Mousse Arashiyama: The New Perfume by Le Jardin Retrouve

The French perfume house Le Jardin Retrouve is known for being one of the first brands of "the third perfumery” - this was the term for niche brands in the 70s. It was Yuri Gutsatz who came up with it, an emigrant from Russia who became a Roure-Bertrand-Dupont perfumer (now Givaudan), and who was dissatisfied with the state of affairs in the perfumery industry, where perfumers were unknown peop...

What do you like about limited edition products? What don't you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Limited Edition Products They give brands a chance to play around and release products that may not fit as well with the brand’s core identity or make sense to have 24/7. On the flip side, they can sometimes feel like they’ve received less effort when they’re lower quality or it gets frustrating when a brand releases mostly limited edition products and has no real permanent range. — Christine Join Discu...

Mented Cosmetics Yacht Life Bronzer Review & Swatches

Yacht Life Mented Cosmetics Yacht Life Bronzer ($22.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It wasn’t too orange-leaning and was more reddish and rusty applied and blended out on my skin. It had nearly opaque color coverage, which was easily built up to full coverage if desired. The powder felt soft and smooth enough to the touch, but there was also some dryness present, which transla...

"But they all didn’t just quit their jobs. They also posted a video about their decision, some of the very moment they resigned, on the popular social media site TikTok.

"And by doing so, they joined countless others who have turned the 'Great Resignation' — the pandemic-era phenomenon of record numbers of Americans quitting their jobs, more than 4 million a month since July — into a communal online experience. The TikTok videos, often raw, sometimes profane and always emotional, show how the pandemic has exacerbated the stresses of work in America and revealed how some workers are using this moment to reevaluate what they want out of life. But why post about qu...

Habitat for Humanity Built First 3D-Printed Home in US

Habitat for Humanity partnered with Alquist to build the first 3D-printed home in the U.S. The 1,200-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two full baths. Alquist’s use of concrete for the walls saved an estimated 15% per square foot in building costs. Concrete better retains temperature, saving on heating and cooling costs, and is more resistant to tornado and hurricane damage. Tags: 3D Printer, lifestyle

Do you have a look planned for New Year's Eve?

I don’t! I get up SO early these days (like 4AM or earlier), and for days like NYE, our families will be coming over so it’ll be a long day for me. By the time they show up, I’ll probably have finished testing any makeup for the day and have removed it all! — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Phytosurgence Simmer Blush Balm Review & Swatches

Simmer Phytosurgence Simmer Skin Spark Blush Balm ($17.07 for 0.14 oz.) is a brighter, medium pink-coral with soft, warm undertones and a natural finish. It was intensely pigmented where a little went a very long way, so I liked to use a fingertip to pat once on the surface of the product, then apply to my cheeks. If I was uncertain about how much I picked up, I’d pat once against the back of my hand to get rid of some product. The te...

Die Wahrheit über „Weed-Kater“

Obwohl Cannabis eine relativ sichere Substanz ist, hat es einige Nebenwirkungen, die manchmal den Wunsch in uns wecken, wir hätten etwas weniger davon konsumiert. Zum Beispiel haben wir alle schon einmal gehört, dass es zu einer Art Kater kommen kann, wenn du’s mit Gras übertreibst. Der so genannte „Weed-Kater“ soll sich durch Müdigkeit, Appetitlosigkeit, Gereiztheit und einem allgemeinen Gefühl von Benommenheit auszeichnen. Aber wie viel davon ist wirklich dran? „So etwas wie einen ‚Wee...

I tried to run from my brother’s death – but therapy helped me confront my traumatic past

My tank was empty. No matter how much I willed myself to carry on as normal, my body and mind resisted. It was time to stop runningWhen my older brother died, the first thing I thought about was work. I had just moved to New York from London, so my family had to break the news over the phone, grappling with my grief while still sucker-punched by their own. But if you had asked me at that moment, I would have told you there was no grief.Instead, I immediately began thinking about which editors I ...

Is There Life After Death?: John Cleese and a Panel of Scientists Discuss That Eternal Question

“I am sixty-five years old,” said John Cleese as he began one year’s convocation address at my university, “which is nearly dead.” It got enough of a laugh that I’m not surprised to find, looking it up all these years later, that he seem to have deployed the line many times since. “I’m now incredibly old,” he said last year in a video urging compliance with coronavirus rules. “I’m nearly dead. I am 81 years of age.” Nevertheless, he remains decidedly non-dead (and indeed active on Twitte...

I was a heroin addict and had given up on myself. Then suddenly, briefly, I felt a desire to live

At my lowest point, I sought self-annihilation. I was saved at the last moment by two of the few people I had not pushed awayIt was a Saturday night in early October 1986. My 30th birthday party, or what passed for it. Just a handful of junkies and my few remaining friends sitting on the floor of a grey, bare room in a flat in south London. I had thought it would be fun, as, for once, there was no shortage of heroin. Instead, I felt wretched.I was in total despair, as a rare moment of self-aware...
