Tom Ford Clint & Mia Boys & Girls Lip Colors Reviews & Swatches

Clint Tom Ford Beauty Clint Boys & Girls Lip Color ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium pink with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightly creamy consistency that was comfortable to apply. Despite it feeling nice going on, it had a tendency to separate along my lip lines and wasn’t particularly flattering on my lips–just seemed to make my lips look more textured. The color stayed on well for four hours and was lightly hydrating over time...

Anastasia Icy & Crystal Loose Pigments Reviews & Swatches

Icy Anastasia Icy Loose Pigment ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a pale white with neutral-to-warm undertones and a bright, metallic finish. It had a slightly larger particle shimmer to it, so it appeared more metallic, shinier, and seemed to have a touch of sparkle, too. This one seemed a little more pigmented, too, in a single “pass” of product, so I’d recommend using a lighter hand if you’re after sheerer application. The texture was finely-milled, blendable, and sat well on my skin; desp...

Are facial masks part of your regular skincare routine? Which ones?

I’m really inconsistent with face masks, but I have been trying to spend at least one evening each week as a more “pampering” moment where I DO use a face mask. I’ve been going through some of the sheet masks I’ve purchased, mostly by Dr. Jart+ as well as Mahalo’s Petal mask. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Does Hollywood fail gay actors who are out from the start?

Gay Pride wasn’t born yesterday, but at 50 this month, it’s never been more vital. That’s due, in part, to Rupert Everett, who was something of a pioneer in the movement as it entered adulthood. The 60-year-old actor came out in 1989, five years into his filmography, back when it still was considered certain career suicide to do so. I’ve always thought of Everett as a successful actor, so I was surprised to come across a 2009 The Guardian profile in which he lamented the effect coming out had h...

The New Moon Is In Gemini, And There's No Limit To Your Dreams

The new moon is back on June 3, and this time, it’s in Gemini. As you may know, the new moon is what we call it when the moon’s face is not visible from the earth.
