Smashbox Level Up & Stepping Out Be Legendary Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Level Up Smashbox Level Up Be Legendary Prime and Plush Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light, rosy brown with soft, warm undertones and a cream finish. The texture was smooth, moderately creamy, and lightweight without being too thin. It had opaque pigmentation in one layer, but the color gravitated toward my deeper lip lines; it wasn’t noticeable in person until after two hours into the three-and-a-half-hour wear time. The form...

Phytosurgence Smolder Blush Balm Review & Swatches

Smolder Phytosurgence Smolder Skin Spark Blush Balm ($17.07 for 0.14 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy brown with strong, warm orange undertones and a natural finish. The consistency was smooth, creamy, and moderately emollient, which helped the cream blush glide and blend out easily over bare skin and on top of foundation (without lifting up base products). It was intensely pigmented, as marketed, and one definitely needs to use a light...

Some workers are returning to the office — to drop off their kids and go back home

Cavan Images/Getty Images Employees of top firms are willing to give up most office perks, apart from one: on-site daycare. With a worsening shortage of childcare options, company-provided daycare can help attract talent. One mom told Businessweek she would have to get on an 18-month waitlist to receive comparable childcare. The Utah headquarters for the business software company Podium offers loads of employee perks, including catered lunches and a pair of fitness centers — but that's no...

Milk Makeup Teleport Bionic Blush Review & Swatches

Teleport Milk Makeup Teleport Bionic Liquid Blush ($20.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a medium orange with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a very fluid, gel-like consistency that was easy to over-apply and over-blend as it was prone to sheering out and spreading out. It had a longer dry down time that made the application less precise, so I would recommend putting some of the back of one’s hand (or a metal palette) and lett...

More cricket: A story of mediocre batters pushed too hard and the collective burnout of a not-great England side

If you’re really going to turn the heat up and cook a sauce for quite some time, you need plenty of good stuff in the pan to begin with. If you haven’t, you’ll end up with a bitter-tasting charred sticky goo that’s no good to anyone. England are different gravy. Our story starts a few years back with plans to play two huge Test series against India, a T20 World Cup and an Ashes series in the space of a few months. This was something we first spotted in 2018. “Try and imagine how you woul...

3 Common Substance Abuse Triggers an Addict Must Avoid

Battling with addiction is challenging for several reasons, and one of the prime reasons is the potential and fear of relapse. However, we believe that healing originates in Jesus Christ, and prayer is the tool that he has given us to begin the process of healing. When dealing with an addiction, it is not easy to predict a specific reason that might cause you to relapse. It could be a sad event in your life, a problem in a relationship, or something emotional you can’t deal with. For all these...

Ist es hinderlich, einen bestimmten Typ bei der Parner:innensuche zu haben?

„Was ist dein Typ?“ Diese Frage gehört spätestens seit der Reality-Show Love Island zum modernen Dating-Vokabular.

7 Ways That Self-Love Inspires Us

Roughly half of all women feel more self-doubt than self-love. And for a long time, I was one of them. Like many moms, I felt I had finally achieved some sense of self-love just before my partner and I decided to become parents. Then, pregnancy happened and both body and mind underwent some serious changes. My stomach stretched, my skin sagged, and my hair started falling out. During that time, the love I had for myself all but disappeared, and not much changed after giving birth. Sudde...
