Chanel Sunkissed Sheer Healthy Glow Highlighting Fluid Review & Swatches

Sunkissed Chanel Sunkissed Sheer Healthy Glow Highlighting Fluid ($48.00 for 1 oz.) is a light-medium, champagne gold with warmer undertones and ultra-fine pearl that gave it a barely-there, luminous sheen when applied to skin. It had a more watery consistency, and it was marketed to work all-over, mixed in with other products, or patted on the high points of the face/body to highlight, which made it an intentionally sheerer formula...

Chanel Tender Healthy Glow Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Tender Chanel Tender Les Beiges Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.16 oz.) includes two more shimmery shades, three more semi-matte to satin shades, and one more sparkly shade. The worst performing shade was the sparkly one, as it was very sheer, didn’t build up, and translated very little to my lid and had lots of fallout, so it was hard to work with in a meaningful way. The other four shades were much better with...

Chanel Intense Healthy Glow Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Intense Chanel Intense Les Beiges Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.16 oz.) includes four more shimmery shades and one more satiny shade. The darkest–the third–shade was the least user-friendly as it was more prone to sheering out and fading. The other four eyeshadows were pigmented, easy to apply, and longer-wearing.

Blossom (130) Chanel Blossom (130) Rouge Coco Bloom Lip Colour ($40.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a brighter, coral-red with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had medium to semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips, but it didn’t build up much in coverage, so it was less pigmented than marketed. The texture was moderately emollient with a fair amount of slip, though it didn’t bleed on me over time. It was ...

It lasted well for four hours and felt lightly moisturizing.FURTHER READING: ...

Clarins Jade Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Jade (05) Clarins Jade (05) 4-Color Eyeshadow Palette ($43.00 for 0.1 oz.) includes three more greenish-leaning shades with a deeper, contrasting navy blue. All four shades had some shimmer, to them, though they were more satin-to-pearl with finer shimmer that looked more like a soft sheen once applied and blended out on skin. They had semi-opaque to opaque coverage that lasted for eight hours for the most part, though this was nowh...

Kann mir ein Persönlichkeitstest dabei helfen, die große Liebe zu finden?

„Was ist sein Sternzeichen?“, ist immer die erste Frage, die im WhatsApp-Gruppenchat aufploppt, sobald ich von einem neuen Typen in meinem Leben berichte. Es folgt jedes Mal eine Google-Suche nach demselben Muster: „Fische Frau + [sein Sternzeichen] Mann Kompatibilität“. Und auch das Ergebnis ist immer dasselbe: Aus kosmischer Sicht sind er und ich einfach nicht füreinander bestimmt. Und so beginnt meine Suche dann von Neuem. Ja, ich weiß – viele Leute halten Horoskope für fragwürdig. Klar si...

Clinique Eyelet, Gauzy, Romanced Even Better Lip Colour Foundation Reviews & Swatches

It had medium color coverage that applied fairly evenly, but there was some product that separated along my lip lines. The texture felt lightweight, thin, and velvety, rather than traditionally creamy. It stayed on decently for three and a half hours and felt hydrating ove...

This or That: Coral Blush Edition

This week, I shared my breakdown of how to make more critical comparisons between two products when you’re choosing between two options, whether you’re in decluttering mode or considering a new purchase or have been tempted by something new and shiny! Here are those methods applied to some of the recommendations I made in my A to Z Guide to Coral Blush. In that post, I included a variety of shades from light to dark, matte to shimmer, cooler to warmer and so on across different brands and price...

1990s Ashes Rematch: Drama on day 5

Last month we pitted a 90s England XI against a 90s Australia XI using International Cricket Captain’s ‘All Time Greats’ mode and the Aussies won. This is the rematch Down Under. Australia (446-5) trail England (575-5 dec) by 129 runs. We’ve done some pretty pointless things in our time, but playing out the fifth day of this match and then writing about it is unquestionably the most pointless today. Here’s what happened on day four. As we resume, Steve Waugh is on 120, Ian Healy...

1990s Ashes Rematch: Australia fight hard against unpredictable England attack on day 4

Last month we pitted a 90s England XI against a 90s Australia XI using International Cricket Captain’s ‘All Time Greats’ mode and the Aussies won. This is the rematch Down Under. Australia (151-2) trail England (575-5 dec) by 424 runs. Here’s what happened on day three. Greg Blewett and Mark Waugh walk out to bat. The sun is out and the ball is 43 overs old, but the pitch is turning and there’s a bit of erratic bounce too. Morning session Angus Fraser lumbers in to start...

Guerlain #29, #30, #31 Rouge G Matte Lip Colors Reviews & Swatches

#29 Guerlain #29 Rouge G de Guerlain Matte Lip Color ($33.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good color coverage that could have applied more evenly to my lips, though a lot of it was a reflection of the finish and formula. The texture felt smooth, lightweight, and more velvety, so it glided comfortably across my lips but didn’t feel emollient. The issue I had was t...

It was lightweight and didn’t catch on imperfections, though it wasn’t as smoothing of my lip lines as the original Rouge G formula is. It had near...

It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which was buildable to full opacity with a second layer, so it seemed a little more pigmented than marketed but not far off. The texture was smooth to the touch, firmer and denser without being stiff to work with but needed a moderately-de...

Per the brand, it’s supposed to have “buildable” coverage and a “visibly dewy finish.” It had medium, buildable coverage–up to mostly opaque with tw...
