MAC Good Moaninnnn & Junie Bee Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Good Moaninnnn MAC Good Moaninnnn Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a soft, peachy coral with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good color coverage in a single layer, which could be built to nearly full coverage with a second layer but needed a lip pencil underneath to get it to be opaque. The texture was lightweight, dense without being stiff to work with, and applied evenly across my lips without tugging. The f...

MAC A Rose in Harlem & I Got a Man Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

A Rose in Harlem MAC A Rose in Harlem Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a vivid, medium-dark red with cooler, blue undertones and a satin sheen.

Crepe Sephora Crepe Lip Last Matte Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark, brownish peach with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish.

Sephora Auburn & Taffy Lip Last Matte Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Sephora Orchid & Garnet Lip Last Matte Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Orchid Sephora Orchid Lip Last Matte Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a rich, mediumd-ark purple with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. This particular shade took longer to dry down than most, so it didn’t look full-on matte until 15 to 20 minutes after application, though it was transfer-resistant before then (after about five minutes). It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly in a single layer. The...

What I wanted to learn.

I wanted to take the "Master Class" from David Sedaris, but I couldn't bring myself to pay $99 for a subscription to the app until I saw that they also had a class from Billy Collins, a poet I've liked ever since I randomly picked a book off a high shelf at Paul's Books and read one poem.Both Sedaris and Collins, I see now, begin their writing by noticing some little thing that is present in their own life. Both teach that you ought to carry a notebook with you everywhere and jot down these litt...
