Tom Ford Lava Lustre Extreme Badass Eye Quad Review & Swatches

Lava Lustre ($89.00 for 0.1 oz.) features a new, “high-impact” formula that delivers high-shine, twinkling sparkle, and full coverage. It was like a much-improved take on the brand’s signature “sparkly” shade in their regular eyeshadow quads. All four shades performed similarly; they were dense and emollient enough to have minimal fallout during application and throughout wear, though it was not fallout-proof.FURTHER READING: ...

Sol Body Lunar or Later Shimmering Body Powder Review & Swatches

Lunar or Later ($12.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a medium peach with moderate, pinkish undertones and a golden sparkle throughout. It had finer, more metallic shimmer as well as more visible sparkle particles, so those who shy away from “glittery” highlighters may find this too sparkly for their tastes. The texture was dense, firmer, and a little thick in the pan, which I’ve found is consistent with the formula. As the brand recommends, the p...

Podcast #625: The Code of the Warrior

Editor’s Note: This is a rebroadcast. It originally aired July 2020. War is a violent and bloody business, but it’s rarely a no-holds barred free-for-all. Instead, codes of conduct that determine what is and isn’t honorable behavior on the battlefield have existed since ancient times. My guest today explored these various codes in a book she wrote during the decade she spent teaching at the United States Naval Academy. Her name is Shannon French, she’s a professor of ethics and philosophy, an...

Chanel Dreamy White & Flirty Coral Rouge Coco Baume Lip Balms Reviews & Swatches

Dreamy White (912) Chanel Dreamy White (912) Rouge Coco Baume Tinted Lip Balm ($40.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a transparent lip balm with a hint of shimmer and moderate shine; it was intended to be clear/transparent in its base, which was what it was. The texture was lightly emollient–it looked glossier than it actually felt–and lightweight, which ensured it was comfortable to wear. It lasted for about two hours from what I could tell and wa...

What do you like about single eyeshadows? What don't you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Single Eyeshadows I think you can get really creative if you’re someone who’ll purchase individual eyeshadows, since they’re a great way to fill in gaps in one’s collection or to get unusual shades (often from indies). The downside is figuring out how to organize them in a way that makes them most useful. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Hope Is What People Need from Leaders Today

Wouldn’t it be nice if a new year truly ushered in a fresh start? The optimism we may have ordinarily had in past years as we turned the calendar to January and considered all of the new possibilities that lay ahead of us is a little harder to muster up this time. The Covid-19 pandemic, now in year three, and other stressors have taken a toll. Many people are exhausted and struggling. We’re seeing it in higher levels of frustration and uncivil behavior being directed at others as the Omicron var...

Fast bowling: County cricket’s diesels and the unprepared Test batters they create

In the wake of England’s Ashes failings, there’s been a lot of talk about how the County Championship is played on pitches that encourage medium-pacers. Pitches are not the big problem. There was a good recent piece about county pitches by CricBuzz’s Rob Johnston. The overly-reduced version of that article is that actually county pitches are pretty good. Not perfect, but probably better than they were in the lead-up to England becoming the number one Test team in 2011. So what’s the pr...

4 Key Attitudes of Critical Thinking

As a result of apartment renovation and moving upstairs, a number of my first floor and new second floor neighbors have been in my apartment. They wanted to see my new digs. One of the most striking features of their perusal is a seemingly profound lack of curiosity and very little ability to “notice.” “You have a beautiful apartment,” most respond. But what’s intriguing is what they don’t see unless I call attention to it. And these are not ill-educated people. I have nearly 45 photos, sculptur...

How a Challenging Time in My Life Led to My Surrender

In my case, it required all the strength I had to be brave enough to follow the invisible into the unknown. – Michael A. Singer I had forgotten my words.

Ich habe ein Jahr lang keine Musik gehört & viel über mich gelernt

Kanarienvögel hören jeden Herbst auf zu singen. Nachdem sie sich gefedert haben, verlieren sie alle Energie fürs Musizieren und konzentrieren sich ganz darauf, ihre Federn nachwachsen zu lassen. Wenn sie sich dann wieder in ihr Wintergefieder kuscheln können, fangen sie erneut an zu singen – Jahr für Jahr für Jahr für Jahr. 2021 hatte ich meine eigene Phase der Stille und des Neuanfangs. Die begann mit einem Versehen: Gegen Weihnachten 2020 verlor ich meine AirPods. Bei einem meiner täglichen...

Assorted Fab Finds

There’s a lot on sale at the moment, so if you like a bargain then have some fun browsing end-of-season sales. At the same time, stay mindful and focussed on your shopping needs. Remember to listen to both your head and heart when adding items to your wardrobe.  I’m shopping more out of season than I used to. Personally, I don’t mind if a new item goes unworn for many months, because when an item is fab-for-me, and especially if it’s a signature item, it’s going to get worn when the weather and ...
