Rare Beauty Transform & Daring Lip Souffles Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Transform Rare Beauty Transform Lip Souffle Matte Cream Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a deep, rich red with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage, which was a surprise since it was supposed to have higher coverage and was a red hue, and those tend to be the most pigmented (when they exist in a range). The texture felt a little thinner, and it seemed more prone to separating slightly along my lip lines,…

Hourglass Sculpture Ambient Lighting Edit Quad Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Sculpture Hourglass Sculpture Ambient Lighting Edit Quad ($58.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a new, limited edition foursome that features a finishing powder, bronzing powder, powder blush, and powder highlighter. They may look familiar to you if you already own last year’s Unlocked (Ghost Edition) palette as all four shades are from there. The products were fairly consistent with respect to application, blendability, and longevity to last year’s versions, though I found the bronzer to be more pigmented this time around…

16 Signs that you are Eating Too Little to Achieve Weight Loss – Beauty Article

As we have always maintained, calorie deficit is the main key to weight loss, but a lot of people, cut down calories drastically in a hope to lose weight at a faster pace, and such a method of crash dieting almost certainly never works. One of the main reasons crash dieting does not lead to sustainable weight loss is that severe calorie restriction lowers metabolism significantly and stalls weight loss altogether. It may also lead to loss of precious muscle…

12 Homemade Remedies to Clear Dandruff – Beauty Article

As we all know, dandruff is one of the main reasons that can trigger excessive hair fall. Just like the rest of the body, the skin of the scalp also sheds periodically and gets replaced with a new layer, but the problem occurs when the shedding is excessive in a way that dead skin cells clump together to become large particles and thus become visible to the naked eye. Itchy, dry, flaky scalp are common symptoms associated with dandruff.  Use of…

21 Best Demi Matte Foundations for All Skin Types – Beauty Article

For women who desire an even-toned skin tone and a flawless base that does not make the skin cakey or heavy, a demi-matte foundation can be a boon. A demi-matte foundation is considered a hybrid between a matte and dewy foundation, the texture meets in between, imparting properties of both. Demi-matte foundations impart a luminous finish to the base without making it too flat or dry, neither too heavy or cakey or shiny. The intention of such a foundation is…

Saturday Surfing, Sep. 19, 2020 – Beauty Article

Rise and shine, morning glory. Good morning. If there’s one huge lesson I’ve learned from 2020 so far, it’s to not take the little things for granted, because those little things — like stepping outside your door and taking a few deep breaths of clean, fresh air — those are the big things, which is why you’re going to have to put up with me posting pictures of the sky for a bit… It’s been three weeks since I’ve been…

Hourglass Sculpture Ambient Lighting Edit Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Sculpture Hourglass Sculpture Ambient Lighting Edit Palette ($80.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition six-pan face palette that features three existing shades and three new shades. The palette contained two finishing powders, one highlighter, one bronzer, and two blushes. It performed consistently with past Hourglass’ palette releases with the finishing powders being very consistent and meet their claims. The blushes aren’t quite as buildable as marketed, though using a lighter hand/picking up less product could achieve that, but…

Rare Beauty Reflect Positive Light Liquid Highlight Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Rare Beauty Reflect Positive Light Liquid Luminizer Highlight ($22.00 for 0.5 oz.) is a deep, reddish-brown with moderate, warm undertones and a smooth, lightly metallic sheen. The finish intensified as coverage increased, so how much “glow” was achieved was all in the application, but it was more of a moderate glow at semi-sheer to medium coverage application. The texture was very lightweight and emollient, like a serum rather than a traditional liquid blush (which tends to have a wetter, more…

Empathy Rare Beauty Empathy With Gratitude Dewy Lip Balm ($16.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a muted, medium rosy pink with moderate, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which was a lot more coverage than anticipated based on the sheer, buildable coverage marketed.

10 Best Fragrance Free Sunscreens in India – Beauty Article

We often look for paraben-free skincare and makeup products, but we are probably overlooking an ingredient which can irritate and cause inflammation in not only sensitive skin, but on all skin types, although other skin types may feel the pinch a little later – we are talking about “added fragrance/perfume.” We do not actually mind those nice feel-good fragrances that are added to ingredients list of products to increase their appeal parfum/fragrance. Both in its synthetic and natural form (essential…

Shine Maker : Sisley Le Phyto Gloss Intense Glow Lipgloss – Beauty Article

[unpaid/samples/affiliate/ad] Nothing could be more up my beauty street than these extra shiny glosses from Sisley. They’re unashamedly at the luxury end of pricing at £39 so would fall into the treat category (for me, anyway). Sisley Le Phyto Gloss Intense Glow Lipgloss I’m a fan of a Sisley gloss at the best of times – loved their Phyto-Lip Delights for summery, milky colour washes from a couple of years back. These, however, have a veil of mother-of-pearl shooting through…

Beauty Business News | British Beauty Blogger – Beauty Article

Really, only moments after the Estee Lauder group came under fire for using terms such as lightening on their skin care products, Jo Malone London has issued an apology for removing John Boyega from the Chinese version of an ad for London Gent candles depicting his personal story and replacing the entire cast with actors that don’t in any way depict his heritage. John Boyega, has now walked away from the project. I think I can see the ‘logic’ that…

Fragrance Your Entire Life With This Cozy, Sexy Scent – Beauty Article

Even if being creative makes you happy, it is largely improbable that all creative opportunities will make you happy all of the time. Instead, you’ll get fatigued—or at least, that’s what behavioral science researchers think. The logic goes like this: if you use up all your creative juices making 20 decisions before you even sit down to work, what’s left to work with? Which is why creative geniuses throughout history, from Steve Jobs to Andy Warhol to Karl Lagerfeld, all…

ColourPop Shook to the Coral Blush Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Shook to the Coral Colour Pop Shook to the Coral Pressed Powder Blush ($10.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a brighter, light-medium orange with strong, warm undertones and flecks of gold sparkle over a satin finish. It had medium, buildable color coverage, which was actually more in line with how the formula is marketed than it usually is (often “too” pigmented compared to claims!). The texture was soft, lightly powdery in the pan, but the product applied well to bare skin…

ColourPop Coastin’ Super Shock Cheek (Highlighter) Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Coastin’ Colour Pop Coastin’ Super Shock Cheek (Highlighter) ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light, yellowed peach base with more of a transparent finish paired with fine gold and pink pearl that resulted in a almost dewy, metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage applied with fingertips and sheerer, buildable coverage applied with a synthetic brush. The texture felt smooth, lightly emollient, so it could be pushed and indented with some pressure (say with a fingertip) but didn’t really feel…

Dior Tutu (769) Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Tutu (769) Dior Tutu (769) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, plummy-toned five-pan palette that included two matte shades with the rest having varying levels of shimmer in them. The second shade was more sparkly with a more powdery base that was prone to sheering out and had a fair amount of fallout, so it would be best for someone willing to use an adhesive base or who doesn’t mind some fallout during wear.…

Courage Rare Beauty Courage Lip Souffle Matte Cream Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a light-medium, brownish-mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish.

Rare Beauty Faith Soft Pinch Liquid Blush ($20.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a darker plum with subtle, cool undertones and a flat, matte finish.

It was intensely pigmented where a little went a very long way, so use less than you think and get familiar with…
