Revlon Lilac Mist, Caramel Glace, Rose Velvet Super Lustrous Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Lilac Mist Revlon Lilac Mist Super Lustrous Lipstick ($8.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark lavender with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage that went on fairly evenly, but it had enough slip that I felt like the edges had very subtle streaking that was visible. The lipstick had a lightweight texture that was emollient without being slippery, so it was comfortable to appl...

ColourPop 310 Pressed Powder Bronzer Review & Swatches

310 Colour Pop 310 Pressed Powder Bronzer ($8.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a light-medium, orange-brown with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was easily built up to full coverage if desired. The texture was smooth, velvety but moderately powdery, so I’d recommend using a lighter hand to avoid picking up too much product at once. It seemed to darken slightly and appeared ...

ColourPop x Becky G Muneca Lip Duo Review & Swatches

Muneca Colour Pop Muneca Lip Duo ($11.00 for 0.15 oz.) contains a rosy brown liquid lipstick and a neutral brown lip pencil. The liquid lipstick performed decently–not perfect but solid–while the lip pencil was sheerer and difficult to apply evenly. Layering the liquid lipstick over the lip pencil didn’t improve the liquid lipstick; it actually made it take longer to dry down and was more visibly separated along my deeper lip lines....

Are back-ups worth it?

Generally, not usually for me, so I have learned to resist backing up products, especially color cosmetics that take forever to get through (and probably, literally, forever for me). For haircare/skincare, it has to be something that I would repurchase and keep using (and even then, I find I test... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

These 6 Winter Scarf Styles Deliver Everything You Need From Your Neckwear This Winter

These 6 Winter Scarf Styles Deliver Everything You Need From Your Neckwear This Winter Thank you to Noxerena for sponsoring this post about winter scarves. All opinions are my own. It’s snowing as I write this and I can’t help but wonder where on earth I’ve put my scarf collection.

I Bought This Popular Drunk Elephant Gift Set For Everyone on My List This Year

As a shopping editor, I often get asked about my favorite products, and during the holidays those are the ones I love giving the most. This year, you won't be catching me giving away any gift cards.

I'm a Frequent Flyer, and This Is the Only Skincare Product I Won't Travel Without

I don't have particularly dry skin, but every time I get off the plane, I find my face looking not only puffy, but also dull and dry. Being in recycled air for hours upon end can do that to a person. I'd consider myself a frequent flyer, and I've got plans to rack up even more miles in the coming months; I don't want to sacrifice glowing skin. Through plenty of trial and error, I know that I need a thicker face cream when I fly, and now, I cannot travel without the Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask ($...

Here’s How We’d Use All 15 Products in Sephora's Exclusive Skin Wonderland Set

Let's start with two magic words: La Mer. That's right, this Sephora Favorites Skin Wonderland set ($64) actually includes the very fancy - and pricey - face cream. But it's just one of the 15 products in the limited-edition kit. We love skin care and we've seen quite a few gift sets this season, but we're still excited for this one in particular. So excited, in fact, that we looked into all the goodies inside to see what each one's No. 1 selling point is, and we've already figured out how to w...

Damon Lindelof of ‘Watchmen’ on bringing the gay, fetishistic heroes of the series to life

Lindelof (left) on set with Regina King. Credit: Mark Hill/HBO As an Emmy-winning producer of Lost, creator of the series The Leftovers, and co-writer of Prometheus, Damon Linedlof has enjoyed wild acclaim and crazy ridicule. Lindelof deleted his Twitter account in 2013 following extreme cyberbullying for his work on The Leftovers and became one of the first major critics of toxic fandom. None of this has dissuaded Lindelof from taking risks. His latest endeavor, the HBO series Watchmen, adap...

Gay guy’s letter defending gay brother to their father goes viral

A gay man named Reid went viral on Twitter last week when he posted the letter he texted to his father after his brother came out as gay and after his father made hurtful comments. “We are from a really Southern, conservative background and me coming out was tough. My brother coming out last week was tougher,” Reid wrote, captioning the screenshots he posted on December 5. “It took me that long to process, but my dad needed to hear this.” Related: Parents refused to attend gay son’s wedding so ...

I'm Obsessed With Skin Care, and This Is My Morning Routine

Today, I consider my skincare routine to be a ritualistic moment of self-care, but that wasn't always the case. I didn't really have a skincare routine in high school, until a battle with acne left me no choice. I had to start slowly and work my way up. An esthetician once told me that with my skin, less is more. I have combination, sensitive, and acne-prone skin, so even the slightest thing will break me out. Because of this, I've had to be very discerning about my routine, and while there are ...

I’m attracted to “average” guys, but the thought of my body being “average” is unacceptable

Let’s face it, when it comes to hookup apps, physical appearance matters. Nobody cares what arthouse cinema you’re into, or what book you’re reading, or what you do for a living. We’re judged immediately on our physical appearance. Our bodies are essentially our “currency.” They determine whether we connect with one another. Like a lot of gay men, it took me a long time to be OK with my “currency,” er, body. I used to look in the mirror and all I could see were flaws. I was constantly judging m...

These donation-worthy organizations are out to crush HIV. They are getting close.

8 Best Lubes for Handjobs in 2020

No man has ever said no to a good old fashioned handjob, unless it’s Freddy Kreuger who’s asking that is… or maybe Bruce Banner when he hasn’t had his morning coffee. Assuming the proposal isn’t coming from a fictional movie character that will turn your pecker into a thinly sliced cucumber or empty tube of Colgate though, there’s not much that beats a handjob. But… Even if your girl or guy has the softest of mitts (or sweats profusely), friction’s still going to cause you problems. Luckily, Toy...

Women are, apparently, the great sanitizing machine. We're the culture's laundry, where everything gets clean.

I'm trying to read "The Year Women Got ‘Horny’/Women reclaimed a word once the province of crass boys and men who are boys" by Tracie Egan Morrissey in the NYT.Phonetically speaking, 'horny' is ugly. It lends itself to a nasal sound that’s comically inelegant. 'Horny' has benefited... from that same so-bad-it’s-good rationality."'I used to hate the word,' Sophia Benoit said.
