Hourglass Every Time, I Am, I Feel Confession Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Every Time Hourglass Every Time Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a light, peachy brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. The consistency was dense without being heavy or thick, so it felt a bit firmer in the tube, but it glided on without tugging and delivered even, nearly opaque coverage in one stroke. There was a touch of tackiness present, which seemed to ensure it stayed in place be...

Giorgio Armani: Armani Code Absolu Gold

To his so popular collection ARMANI CODE COLLECTION, Giorgio Armani includes this newest limited edition as an oriental interpretation of the original, as an addictive and sophisticated creation based on iconic tonka beans spiced by saffron and embraced by magnetic iris. The newest version, Armani Code Absolu Gold, arrives in a golden flacon following last year's masculine, Armani Code Absolu...

Bite Beauty Pastille & Tatin Power Move Lip Crayons Reviews & Swatches

Pastille Bite Beauty Pastille Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones paired with a soft, cream finish. The lip crayon was richly pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that felt lightweight and had a smidgen of tackiness, which I felt kept it in place while still offering a very comfortable-to-wear formula. The color applied evenly, thou...

The kimono – from costume to catwalk

From the 17th to the 20th century the kimono was the principal piece of clothing in Japan for both men and women. But now it’s an inspiration for fashion all over the worldFashion as we know it – the business of clothes-as-zeitgeist, as distinct from simple dressmaking – was invented in Paris by Louis XIV in the second half of the 17th century. This, at least, is fashion’s widely accepted creation myth. The Sun King and his finance minister, Jean-Baptiste Colbert, established a luxury fashion in...

Hourglass Only You/I Hope We Confession Lipstick Duo Review & Swatches

Only You/I Hope We Hourglass Only You I Hope We Confession Lipstick Duo ($72.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a new, limited edition duo that features two full-sized lipsticks with refillable packaging. Unfortunately, the inclusion of two lipstick holders resulted in quite a bump up from the holiday duos that launched (which included just one holder). The price of the duo is the same as buying two shades individually, too. Both shades were stel...

Best LGBTQ destinations 2020

The world made landmark advancements regarding LGBTQ rights in 2019. Taiwan became the first Asian country to legalize same-sex marriage, India ended a colonial-era law criminalizing gay sex, and Sweden passed a law banning hate speech related to gender expression. Pride events around the globe honored the 50th anniversary of Stonewall, and a reported five million people attended New York City’s parade to celebrate the birthplace of the modern LGBTQ rights movement. But the year wasn’t all r...

Sydney Grace Seashore, Lake Days, Splendor, Ride the Wave Cream Shadows Reviews & Swatches

Seashore Sydney Grace Seashore Cream Shadow ($8.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a light, minty green with cooler undertones and warmer, golden shimmer throughout. It had semi-sheer pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to mostly opaque coverage with a second (make sure to let the first layer dry down!). The texture was runnier (which is clear in the shot where I tried to–gently!–squeeze out a bit of product to capture it), which g...

The perils of futurism in the world of Donald Trump.

I ran into this April 1991 New York Magazine article "Star Bores/Too Much Madonna? Too Much Nancy, Teddy, Cher? Or Is There Never Enough?"This was purely by accident, as I was searching for something that I never found — a common saying from the past that was something like: Americans can't understand any message that won't fit on a T-shirt. Or: Any political philosophy that can't fit on a T-shirt might as well not exist because Americans are not terribly intellectual and have a short attention ...

Laura Mercier Caviar du Jour Caviar Stick Mini Set Review & Swatches

Caviar du Jour Laura Mercier Caviar du Jour Caviar Chrome Mini Set ($39.00 for 0.12 oz.) contains three miniature-sized pencil eyeshadows. Two shades had good pigmentation and smoother application, while two were absolutely dismal across the board. The two better shades were still harder to diffuse along the edges as they set very quickly. They ended up being easier to use as eyeliner or as a base on the lid. ...

Kylie Jenner Cut Her Daily Makeup Routine to 10 Minutes, 'Cause That's the Life of a Busy Mom

Kylie Jenner is no stranger to a detailed, deliberate makeup routine, but since becoming a mom to Stormi, her everyday process has shortened quite a bit. Shortly after Jenner shook the internet with her "Rise and Shine" meme moment, the 22-year-old reality star and entrepreneur shared a peek into the products she uses to cut her regimen from 30 minutes to 10 minutes. She starts off by applying the Face Primer from her Birthday 2019 collection ($28), followed by her yet to be released ...

Giorgio Armani Redwood (415) Lip Maestro Review & Swatches

Redwood (415) Giorgio Armani Redwood (415) Lip Maestro ($38.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a rich, coppery-red with warmer undertones and barely-there, ultra-fine gold pearl strewn throughout. The consistency was creamy, spreadable, and velvety–not overly “wet” in feel but dispersed well across my lips for an even lay down of color. The only place for improvement with this product and formula was that it could have smoothed out my lip lines ...

The Unlikely Eyeshadow Trend You'll Be Wearing This Summer

With summer quickly approaching, it's only natural to want to turn our spring-inspired eye makeup trends up a notch. While those pastel shades might have been nice from March to May, come June you'll catch us daydreaming about bright blue liner that reminds of us of the ocean (and Lupita Nyong'o), pink eyeshadow that makes those eyes pop, and yes, on our most daring days: green eye makeup.Just hear us out: It's a shade that isn't so bright that it'd look weird with a classic T-shirt and jeans ...

Urban Decay Sparkle Out Loud Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliners Reviews & Swatches (Part 2)

Studio Urban Decay Studio Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner ($21.00 for 0.25 oz.) has a clear base with lavender sparkle and holographic glitter. It had semi-sheer coverage in a single stroke of the included applicator. The texture was watery, lightweight, and thin with a fairly quick dry down (didn’t feel too fast nor too slow). The glitter moved evenly across the area I applied it to, so it had a good effect all over. It lasted nicely for eight hours with very minimal movement over time...

San Francisco Bite Beauty San Francisco Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a bright, neon coral-red with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that adhered well to my lips with a smooth, even lay down of color.

Giorgio Armani toasts 10 years at his namesake restaurant

Chanel Blurry Green (318) Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Blurry Green (318) Chanel Blurry Green (318) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($62.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new quad that features two more golden shades and two deeper, more contrasting shades of black-brown and forest green. I’ve seen the quad say sold out and then pop back in stock, and the website doesn’t list it as limited edition, so my expectation is that it should reappear at some point (hopefully sooner rather than later). Makes one wonder why there aren’t more green pa...

The consistency was creamy, balm-like, and had moderate slip to the point where it felt like it melted as I glided across my lips. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied smoothly and didn’t sit in my lip lines. It wore well for five hours and was lightl...
