Lancome Caprice & Idole L’Absolu Rouges Reviews & Swatches

Caprice (132) Lancome Caprice (132) L’Absolu Rouge ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, medium red with cool undertones and a natural sheen. There was very, very fine pearl strewn throughout that gave it a smoother, more luminous finish but didn’t look shimmery to the eye. The consistency was smooth, thin, and lightweight but not at all clingy nor did it emphasize my lip texture–it actually made my lips look a bit smoother. It wore well for five and a half hours, left a reddish stain, an...

ColourPop Birthday Treat Super Shock Pressed Pigment Review & Swatches

Birthday Treat Colour Pop Birthday Treat Super Shock Pressed Pigment ( for oz.) is a brighter, light-medium orange with warm red undertones and flecks of pink and gold glitter. It had good color coverage that was buildable to full opacity with two layers. The texture was smooth, creamy with moderate slip, and sponge-like (as the formula typically is!) and felt more powder-like as soon as it came into contact with my skin. It wore well for 10 hours without creasing or fading but had s...

Urban Decay Sparkle Out Loud Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliners Reviews & Swatches (Part 1)

Disco Daydream Urban Decay Disco Daydream Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner ($21.00 for 0.25 oz.) is holographic and silver glitter suspended in a clear base. It has a thin, brush-style applicator that makes it easier to apply a thin line of product, particularly if one was layering it over a liquid or pencil eyeliner. I was able to disperse and spread the glitter on fairly evenly with the included applicator. It has a very wet feel initially but does dry down and set in place for long-wear...

 J.U.S, a new brand from France, has simultaneously presented a total of 11 fragrances comprising two collections, Sensory Jewels and Unique Jewels. Its vivid refillable flacons definitely attract one' s attention (I personally find them to look like bottles of nail polish).

Trusting Yourself

I recently made lists of my most personally meaningful accomplishments and experiences as well as my biggest regrets and mistakes of the past 25 years. Then I spent about 90 minutes looking for lessons and patterns in both lists.The #1 lesson was pretty clear. My biggest gains came largely from taking bold, committed action in the direction of self-trust. This was especially pronounced when I went all-in to trust my own reasoning and intuitive feelings well before there were clear outward signs ...

Sophie Turner Looks Like a Different Person With Bangs, and We're Obsessed

Just yesterday, Sophie Turner wore a sleek ponytail at a London event for X-Men: Dark Phoenix, but today, she's all about bangs. The 23-year-old Game of Thrones actress was spotted leaving her hotel for another event promoting her newest movie, and her hair is unlike we've ever seen it. It's unclear whether or not Turner took the plunge and got a real chop or if she's rocking a really good wig, but hairstylist Christian Wood shared an up-close photo on Instagram, and we're obsessed either way. ...

The Perfect Wedding-Day Scent For Every Type Of Bride

Choosing the right perfume is one of the more intimate details of planning a wedding.

Ashley Tisdale on the Beauty Products She Splurges On (and the Important Reason Why)

"If I'm going to spend money, I'm going to spend money on skin care," Ashley Tisdale told POPSUGAR. Her investment in skin care isn't just for the sake of . . . well, good skin. It's also a means to keep her from overstressing. The actress and singer said she dedicates her Sundays to indulgences like face masking and exfoliating - and the reason makes perfect sense. "For a while I was working and overworking," she said. "I realized that, yes, you can keep working and, yes, you can work on the we...

Sophie Turner Says Goodbye To Sansa Stark With Brand-New Bangs

Now, it looks like she's not only moving on to her next project post- GoT, but moving on with her beauty look as well: While doing press in London for her upcoming X-Men movie Dark Phoenix , Turner tossed out her signature long, low-maintenance hair for a new set of bangs. Because what better way to say goodbye to a ch...

I Swapped My Nonexistent Self-Care Routine For My Maximalist Colleague's — & I'll Never Be The Same

To understand my attitude toward self-care, all you need to know is my standard-issue response whenever I've worked myself up over a passing dog and someone asks why I don't just adopt one: a guffaw, then "I can barely take care of myself."It's not modesty — I have managed to avoid calamity and keep my vital organs functioning for 2.5 decades, but only just barely, and not without much physical and emotional discomfort. My personal brand is more self-denial than indulgence, of grimly carrying o...
