Giorgio Armani #9, 10, 11 Eye Tints Reviews & Swatches (2020)

Cold Copper (9) Giorgio Armani Cold Copper (9) Eye Tint Liquid Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a medium-dark, golden beige with moderate, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had sheer color coverage, which was buildable to medium coverage at best when I gently used circular motions using the included applicator (fingertips and separate brushes did prove useful for achieving higher coverage at all). The texture was more wate...

NARS Paradise Found Oil-Infused Lip Tints Reviews & Swatches

6 Dermatologists and Skin Experts Explain Why Your Breakouts Are Out of Control Right Now

Has your skin been breaking out like crazy or drier than usual since we all started self-isolating? Because mine certainly has. And after talking to other POPSUGAR editors and posting about it on Instagram, we've learned that a lot of people feel like their skin is freaking out right now. Much of it can be attributed to higher levels of stress and anxiety, sure, but we couldn't help wondering if there might be more to it. Turns out we were on to something. As dermatologist Shari Marchbein, MD, ...

NARS Samoa Matte Bronzing Powder Review & Swatches

Samoa NARS Samoa Matte Bronzing Powder ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm red undertones and a matte finish. It’s a “cooler” toned bronzer in the sense that it doesn’t lean orange or golden. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage, which is a little higher coverage than described but not that far off. The texture felt incredibly smooth and silky with light glide, which helped keep it from being t...

NARS Laguna Afterglow Lip Balm Review & Swatches

Laguna NARS Laguna Afterglow Lip Balm ($28.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a light-medium, caramel brown with moderate, warm undertones and fine copper pearl paired with a balmy, lightly luminous finish. The texture was lightweight, emollient without being too thick or slippery, and it felt thin on my lips after an hour or so of wear. It had sheer to semi-sheer color coverage, as expected based on the claims, that covered my lips evenly and di...

NARS Paradise Found Powerchrome Eye Pigments Reviews & Swatches

Islamorada NARS Islamorada Powerchrome Loose Eye Pigment ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium, bluish-aqua with subtle, cool undertones and a chunky, sparkling finish that had a bit of shine to it. It was more like a loosely-pressed (but mostly loose!) powder that was chunky and clumpy. Those are not words I want associated with my eyeshadow, and this was a mess to work with. There was a lot of fallout during application regardless ...

7 Recipes That Make The Most Of A Tin Of Tomatoes

If you had to assemble a pantry of kitchen staples ahead of, say, a global pandemic, what would be the key players? Oil, salt, pepper, onions, garlic, various pulses and grains and probably (definitely) tinned tomatoes. With that base and a quick delve into your spice cupboard you can head out into so many different cuisines: Italian, Indian, Mexican, American, Turkish, Greek. Tinned tomatoes are the great equaliser; whether you're relatively new to the kitchen or an aficionado, someone ...

NARS Vallarta Matte Bronzing Powder Review & Swatches

Vallarta NARS Vallarta Matte Bronzing Powder ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a light-medium brown with moderate, more muted golden undertones paired with a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly and blended out easily on bare skin. The texture was smooth, velvety, and had a bit of glide to it with a smidgen of powderiness (that was just present in the pan but not applied). It picked up wel...

MAC Tutu Good, Jingle Ball Bronze, Motif, If It Ain’t Baroque, Marsh Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Tutu Good MAC Tutu Good Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light-medium, rosy copper base with flecks of pink and copper sparkle throughout. It had a more textured feel to it due to the amount (and size) of sparkle in the finish, and it seemed drier, too, so there was some fallout and difficulty in getting the product to lay smoothly on my lid. I’d recommend applying it with a fingertip or a dampened brush as both methods yielde...

MAC Shady Santa, Haute Sauce, Rose Before Bros, Finjan, Royal Rendezvous Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Shady Santa MAC Shady Santa Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a deep burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was firmer, almost stiff, compared to most of the newer-formula matte shades. It was harder to diffuse and blend out along the edges, but it was workable with some extra effort. It had good pigmentation that built up to full coverage with a second layer and was best applied by pressing and p...

MAC Natural Wilderness, Sandstone, Greystone, Carbon, In Living Pink Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Natural Wilderness MAC Natural Wilderness Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a lighter, very yellowy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, while the texture was smooth to the touch, not too firmly nor too softly pressed in to the pan. I had no trouble picking up product with a dry brush and diffusing the edges. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.FURTHER READ...

It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which had a smooth, velvety texture that wasn’t too powdery nor too firmly pressed into the pan. The formula felt more substantial and denser than some of the brand’s matte shades, so it was more yielding but it still blended o...

I’m 27 & I Was Hospitalized With Coronavirus

Millennials haven’t been too concerned about contracting coronavirus. While we aren’t all as irresponsible as the young people caught on camera during spring break in Florida (“If I get corona, I get corona”), most people’s concerns have seemed to lie with the economic fallout of the pandemic. We might not be able to pay our rent but we’re young! We’re healthy! We do Barry’s Bootcamp twice a week! Even if we do get it, we’ll be fine. After all, the early messaging was clear: the older you are, t...

MAC Humblebrag, Samoa Silk, Libra, Nude Model, Left You on Red Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Humblebrag MAC Humblebrag Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a very light lavender with subtle, cool undertones and flecks of cooler pink micro-sparkle. The texture was soft, moderately powdery, and a little drier to the touch, so it was more prone to fallout and didn’t adhere as well to bare skin. I’d definitely recommend wearing this with a primer, which helped the product to go on more readily. It had medium coverage that was b...

Finding Comfort in Predictions

On March 11 I wrote the following notes in my personal journal: The coronavirus is currently in outbreak mode around the world. There are 125,865 known infections worldwide, with almost 81K in China. In the USA there are already 1281 infections, 7 of them in Nevada. But that’s largely due to severe under-testing.I think the USA is in for a big reckoning, especially with Donald Trump being a complete idiot in his response to this, clearly caring more about the economy and his own self-interest...

In the midst of a pandemic, will the FDA finally lift the gay blood ban?

(Image: Center for Disease Control) As the COVID-19 crisis rages on and U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams begs citizens to donate blood to alleviate a growing need, LGBTQ activists have once again called on the FDA to lift a years-old ban on gay men from donating.
