How the Language of Beauty Needs to Change

The language we use is important and has consequences.  Adjusting our language (or being aware of the impact of language) is a way we can reduce harm as individuals on an on-going basis. By being aware of how the word choices we make and whether there’s room for improvement, we really can make the beauty space more inclusive, respectful, and kinder. Let’s Use Specific Descriptions Is there any product that’s universally loved? Any?  Regardless of product category, p...

Sometimes Things Aren’t Right With The Universe and That’s Ok

Morning! How ya doing over there? Staying positive? Your head isn’t about to explode yet is it? If it’s getting all a little too much just remember sometimes things aren’t always right with the universe and that’s ok. Things aren’t always going to be ok because life is never about perfect. Yesterday was hard because I didn’t have a great way to express what I wanted to say. I can’t really help anyone with how they feel if I don’t even know how I feel. I’ve turned off the TV, I’ve sat an...

Kosas Tropic Equinox High Intensity Color & Light Palette Review & Swatches

Tropic Equinox (High Intensity) Kosas Tropic Equinox (High Intensity) Color and Light Palette ($34.00 for 0.32 oz.) consists of a medium, orange-brown blush paired with a golden copper highlighter. The blush was more blendable and easier to work with over both bare skin as well as over foundation compared to the highlighter, which was a little tackier and occasionally lifted up base products a bit. Both shades were quite pigmented...

What research do you do before purchasing a product?

It depends on if it’s a brand I regularly review or not. For brands I often review, then it’s just a matter whether the product is new and is the kind of product I test (e.g. I don’t review a lot of brow product, so I purchase an entire brow gel range). For brands I review occasionally from or... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

NARS Quirimba Matte Bronzing Powder Review & Swatches

Quirimba NARS Quirimba Matte Bronzing Powder ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It was a totally flat, matte finish, so it seemed to darken a bit when applied over bare skin (you’ll want to apply it over matte or set skin). I’ve noticed that mattes that darken are often a little drier and more difficult to blend out. I had the best luck applying with a fluffi...

Sydney Grace Pumpkin Spice Latte Loose Highlighter Review & Swatches

Pumpkin Spice Latte Sydney Grace Pumpkin Spice Latte Loose Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a light orange with strong, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, though the loose format makes it a little harder to tell how pigmented is pigmented as readily as with a pressed formula! I didn’t feel like I had to be extra careful to get the smallest amount for coverage, but I didn’t need ...

MAC Out of This Pearl & Summer Chromance Lipglasses Reviews & Swatches

Out of This Pearl MAC Out of This Pearl Lipglass ($18.50 for 0.1 oz.) has a clear base with flecks of gold and copper sparkle. It was actually described as “clear with gold pearl” (finally!), so the resulting sheer coverage (in the form of shimmer/sparkle) was as expected. The gloss had a smooth, moderately sticky consistency that minimized my lip lines and didn’t settle into them. It lasted well for four hours and felt moisturiz...

What products are you least critical of? Why?

On a personal level, I think I’m most forgiving of highlighters – like I don’t care if it emphasizes skin texture, it’s fine if they’re more or less pigmented, etc. I love all the finishes, and I don’t mind building up coverage for cheek colors (in general). Again, personal-level – I... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

MAC Foiled Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Sunphoria (Feminine Wiles) MAC Sunphoria (Feminine Wiles) Foiled Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light lavender with subtle, warm undertones and a bright, metallic finish that was slightly more sparkly than other shades in the same formula. The texture was soft, lightly creamy, and blendable without being too firmly or too softly pressed into the pan, though it wasn’t quite as creamy as other shades in the line. It had good p...

What do you like about sheer lipsticks? What don’t you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Sheer Lipstick I prefer medium coverage or higher as I find sheer coverage often emphasizes the natural unevenness in my lip color and that they aren’t that long-wearing. Like I don’t mind if it doesn’t wear like iron, but I don’t want to feel like I need to reapply every couple of hours! — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

MAC Too Cool for Pool & Would Rather Lounge Lipglasses Reviews & Swatches

Too Cool for Pool MAC Too Cool for Pool Lipglass ($18.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium-dark coral-red with moderate, warm undertones and light gold pearl throughout. It had semi-sheer color coverage that could have applied a bit more evenly, though it didn’t look so bad from a normal viewing distance. The texture was light-medium in thickness, moderately tacky, but it didn’t feel heavy or glue-like on my lips. It wore well for four a...

I Hope It’ll Be Ok

I struggled writing about beauty when COVID broke out. It’s really taken a lot of emotion and energy to try to act like things were normal when things were very not normal. But I found a calm in it and you all helped me with your kind comments and positive emails to tell me that my posts took your mind of what was going on around us. But today, I’m struggling even harder. Like many of you my eyes are glued to the TV screen even though watching it hurts my heart so much. I always want to thi...
