Tom Ford Dorothy, Abigail, Cherry Boys & Girls Lip Colors Reviews & Swatches

Dorothy Tom Ford Beauty Dorothy Boys & Girls Lip Color Sheer ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, light-medium coral with warmer undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was closer to sheer than the other two shades launched this season! The product applied comfortably to my lips as the texture was lightweight, creamy without being too slippery, and had fairly evenly application. The ...

Teen Makeup and Beauty Spending Statistics

I came across very interesting article today about the steep decline in teen beauty and makeup spending this year. According to Yahoo Finance reports teen’s spent 20% less on makeup in Fall 2019 than they did the previous year. It got me wondering if Gen Zers are spending so much less what about millennials and Gen Xers? I personally feel like the makeup and beauty industry has gone flat. The bubble has burst and people are starting to wake up and realize that they’d rather purchase quality...

Haus Laboratories Le Riot Lipgloss Review & Swatches

Haus Laboratories Le Riot Lipgloss is a new lipgloss formula created by Lady Gaga that’s available in six shades for $18 each. As you may or may not know Haus Laboratories by Lady Gaga was teased late this Summer and became available for pre-order on the brand’s website and I think I placed an order on in August but my pre-order was shipped around September 20th or so. It was a long wait for something I wanted to try out immediately. This isn’t Gaga’s first foray into bea...

What’s missing from this year’s holiday releases?

PEARLY RED LIPSTICKS. I just feel like red is a classic, holiday kind of color, and then duh, add shimmer. I remember years ago, I’d always look forward to a great, MAC holiday shimmery, red lipstick. There actually aren’t THAT many (relative to how many reds and brands exist) exist in... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

King Princess first introduced the bevy of products on her Instagram stories: "I could cry," she said to the pile of makeup in front of her. "She's a woman now."

40 Things We Need to Teach Our Kids Before They’re too Cool to Hear Our Wisdom

Kids must be taught how to think, not what to think. Today our son, Mac, started Kindergarten. The experience of dropping him off for his very first day of school struck so many emotions in me. As every parent of a school-age child can attest, the very first day of school is a learning experience in and of itself. It’s one of those little milestones you anticipate and always remember. Anyway, I awoke this morning thinking about the whole experience—of childhood, parenthood, and everything in...

Which beauty product has proven to be the biggest multitasker in your collection?

Sonia G.’s Builder Three is a newer go-to, and for me, it replaces the functionality of MAC’s 239 for me, which has long been one of my most versatile brushes as I could get away with doing an entire look using just that brush.

Chanel Aurora & Fraicheur Rouge Coco Glosses Reviews & Swatches

Aurora (822) Chanel Aurora (822) Rouge Coco Gloss ($30.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a translucent, pink-coral base with random bits of micro-sparkle. There were barely enough sparkles to warrant calling it a sparkly gloss, but for anyone who would rather go without than wear a single sparkle, you’ve been warned! The texture was smooth, like a creamy gel, and comfortable to wear with a non-sticky feel. It had semi-sheer coverage, which looked more like it darkened and enhanced my natural lip color (in...

Hourglass Icon, Impact, Solar Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Glosses Review & Swatches

Icon Hourglass Icon Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Gloss ($30.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a rich red with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in one stroke, which adhered evenly and smoothly across my lips. The consistency was lightly creamy, more like a smooth gel, as it felt plush without being heavy or sticky. I was impressed by how smoothing this particular shade was as my lip lines were nearly invisible. The gloss stayed on well for five hours ...

MAC & Benefit Are Making It So Easy To Support Planned Parenthood

With the Trump Administration and states like Alabama and Georgia never not proposing rules that could signal the end of abortion access in America as we know it, it's more important now than ever to support the organizations that have made it their mission to stand in the Administration's way. Conveniently for those of us who believe in women's fundamental human rights and lipstick, two of the beauty world's most powerful brands have launched ongoing efforts to help Planned Parenthood, which h...

ILIA Sing Color Haze Multi-Use Pigment Review & Swatches

Sing ILIA Sing Color Haze Multi-Use Pigment ($32.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium, rosy plum with subtle, cool undertones and a natural, matte finish. It had buildable coverage from sheer to medium (two layers), though it was hard to get it to greater coverage. The consistency was smooth, lightweight, and spreadable with more substance than a true, liquid-based blush but was more emollient and felt wetter to the touch compared to a potted, cream blush. However, it did tingle on my skin fo...

MAC x Disney Aladdin Rose Pigment Reviews & Swatches

Rose MAC Rose Pigment ($21.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and much warmer, golden shimmer (and lots of it!) that gave it a metallic finish. It’s a loose product, but it has a chunkier shimmer to it–more frosted than most shimmers are these days–and tends to work best really pressed and patted on with fingertips or applied with a wet brush. Applied dry as an eyeshadow, I find it tends to have a fair amount of fallout (even when I’m careful), but it ...

MAC x Disney Aladdin Lipglasses Reviews & Swatches

Jewels on Jewels MAC Jewels on Jewels Lipglass ($17.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a soft, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a pearl finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff that applied somewhat evenly to my lips, but from a normal viewing distance, it didn’t look quite as uneven as I know it actually was. The gloss had a smooth, moderately tacky consistency that was comfortable to wear, as it felt plush rather than heavy. It lasted well for four hours and was moisturizing while worn. Top ...

MAC x Disney Aladdin Your Wish is My Command Powder Blush Review & Swatches

Your Wish is My Command MAC Your Wish is My Command Powder Blush ($35.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It seemed balanced between red and orange and didn’t have some of the saturation that some warmer bronzers can have. The texture was velvety and smooth to the touch, which made it easier to pick up and blend out on my skin. Historically, MAC’s limited edition bronzers have had ratings all over the place but are often very stiff and diff...

MAC x Disney Aladdin Friend Like Me & Princess Incognito Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Friend Like Me MAC Friend Like Me Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with neutral undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single layer, while the texture was lightly creamy, emollient without being slippery, and denser in the tube but not to the point where it dragged or tugged on my lips during application. The color applied evenly but had a tendency to separate along my deeper lip lines. It stayed on well for four hours and was light...
