Urban Decay Sparkle Out Loud 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils Reviews & Swatches

Electric Empire Urban Decay Electric Empire 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil (Eyeliner) ($22.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a rich, blue-teal base with cooler gold and green micro-glitter and sparkle. It was glittery, though it seemed slightly tempered by slightly finer particles, but it’s not something I’d wear comfortably on my water line (I tried; it went poorly–it didn’t seem THAT sparkly initially). There was enough particles i the liner that I could feel a bit of texture as it glided across my lowe...

Dior Terra (786) Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Terra (786) Dior Terra (786) High Fidelity Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.24 oz.) is comprised of warm, shimmery neutrals from peach to plum that tends to over in the more mid-tone area of the color spectrum. It works as a standalone palette, but I imagine that it’ll be more versatile when paired with your favorite matte eyeshadows (particularly for more depth). All five shades were pigmented, blendable, and easy to work with–no complaints–which made it one of the be...

Chanel Blurry Blue (324) Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Blurry Blue (324) Chanel Blurry Blue (324) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($62.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, permanent (or so it seems, as it is not listed as limited edition on the brand’s website) featuring a smokier set of shades–two taupes, a deep (but faded) blue, and mid-depth gray. For me, I could see this as an anchor palette–one that will complement a lot of other palettes (particularly your lighter or more shimmery palettes)–but runs together a lot on its own. The pi...

NARS Isabella & Margot Audacious Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Isabella NARS Isabella Audacious Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with soft, warm undertones and a satin sheen. The lipstick had opaque color payoff in a single layer, which glided across my lips easily and delivered an even application of product. The texture was creamy, smooth, and lightweight, despite having a denser/slightly thicker feel. It wore well for five and a half hours and felt lightly hydrating over time. Top Dupes Formula OverviewIngredients ...

Tom Ford Suspicion Eye Color Quad Review & Swatches

Suspicion (04) Tom Ford Beauty Suspicion (04) Eye Color Quad ($88.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a newly-released quad featuring four shimmery shades in warmer hues. All four shades were pigmented, blendable, and easy to work with and lasted for seven to eight hours on me (without primer). The formula seems to be marginally improved upon, as it seemed softer and more yielding while still being that familiar gel-powder texture (denser, firmer, no fallout, and blends well on skin). ...

Nike’s 'Dream Crazy' campaign takes Best in Show at the One Show

Nike ruled during the One Club's 46th annual One Show last week, taking home Best in Show as well as a slew of pencils for “Dream Crazy,” an extension of the brand’s “Just Do It” campaign. The campaign, created out of Wieden & Kennedy Portland and produced out of Park Pictures and Joint Portland, illustrated how athletes have defied expectations to make seemingly insane dreams a reality. Most notably, it included ads featuring former NFL player Colin Kaepernick along with the line, “Believe i...

NARS Bella & Delphine Audacious Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Bella NARS Bella Audacious Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark peach with warm, orange undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly across my lips. The texture was lightly creamy, denser but not thick or heavy to wear, and comfortable to apply as it did not tug or drag. This particular shade seemed to be a bit less forgiving of my lip lines compared to some of the shades in the Audacious range, though...

Tom Ford Clash, Stunner, Powertrip Lip Sparks Reviews & Swatches

Clash Tom Ford Beauty Clash Lip Spark ($55.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a deep, coppery red with warm, orange undertones and flecks of orange and red sparkle. It had medium to semi-opaque coverage in one layer, which went on fairly evenly but could have applied better. The texture was lightweight, emollient without being heavy or slippery on my lips during wear, and was comfortable to wear. I didn’t notice the texture during application or while worn, though if I pressed my lips together firmly...

Intense Teal (946) Chanel Intense Teal (946) Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($33.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a rich, medium blue with cool undertones and a satin sheen. It seemed to have slightly larger shimmer than some of the other shades released alongside this one, but it had less of it. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy but not quite as emollient as the other shades–thankfully, not to the point where it was less comfortable to use, as it still adhered evenly and didn’t s...

I found that the longevity was a little shy of average, so I’d encourage those interested to be sure to use primer underneath to minimize the chance of fading, but the eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, a...

It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly to my lash line without dragging or tugging on it. The texture was lightweight, creamy, and emollient without being too wet as it set to a long-lasting product within 10 seconds. It wore well for 10 hours with ...

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...

Tom Ford Surge & Thrust Lip Sparks Reviews & Swatches

Surge Tom Ford Beauty Surge Lip Spark ($55.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a deeper gold with larger, chunkier flecks of glitter paired with a warmer, more brown base. It had more semi-opaque coverage when I swatched it, but on my lips, it seemed more semi-sheer to medium in coverage. The texture was sparkly; I could feel the edges of the glitter as I applied the lipstick and if I pressed my lips together. This shade seemed to have the largest particles, and it also applied the worst in the range w...

Al Belletto: The Big Sound

The last time I posted on saxophonist and clarinetist Al Belletto was in January, when I wrote about his first album in 1954, Kenton Presents, an Introduction to the Al Belletto Quintet. Today, my focus is on perhaps Belletto's finest leadership album, The Big Sound. Recorded by a Belletto-led sextet in Cincinnati for King Records in July 1960, the band featured Billy Hunt (tp), Kenny Rupp (tb,p, celeste), Al Belletto (as,bar), Don Menza (ts), Dave Sibley (b) and Bobby Pike (d). The album's so...

Best & Worst of Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Collection

After testing all of the new products from the Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Collection, it was a bit of a mixed bag! The Lovegasm palette was nice, while the Lightgasm palette was less pigmented and stiffer/firmer in the pans, so it was less easy to work with. The three new shades of Light Wands were lovely, though. I struggled to prevent Rose Gold from creasing on me but had success with Star Gold–go figure.  Did you pick up anything from this launch? Anything moved on or off your wish list? ...

All four shades have some shimmer to them, though one (the fourth) has more of a satin finish. The eyeshadows were pigmented, smooth, blendable, and easy to work with and worked well together. The formula seemed ever-so-slightly more finely-milled and silky, almost more yielding than past iterations of this formula by ...

Potential Retrial In Sight For Imam Jamil Al-Amin (H. Rap Brown)

It was the night of March 16th, 2000. That day had been Eid, the holiest day of the year for West End’s Muslim community. Prayers were held by Imam Jamil Al-Amin, the soft-spoken, bookish Imam, who was famously known in the civil rights movement as H. Rap Brown prior to his conversion to Islam. That night, police officers pulled up to the Imam’s convenience store with a warrant for his arrest. The police saw a man and asked him to put his hands up: 5’8”, gray eyes, and 170 pounds, as eyewit...

Waitrose Partners to Innovate Private Brand Packaging

CuanTec – based in Motherwell and Oban –  takes waste langoustine shells created from seafood processing to make a natural polymer – which can then be turned into a flexible film.
