Sydney Grace Duchess Highlighter Review & Swatches

Duchess Sydney Grace Duchess Highlighter ($9.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a medium-dark gold with strong, warm yellow undertones and a luminous sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, almost cream-like feel to it, so it was dense without being too firmly-pressed into the pan. I had no trouble picking up product with a brush–I’d actually say to use a lighter hand and build up if you tend to like your highlighter sheerer–and applying...

It was like a river…

Yesterday, at town hall it was like a river. Police kept shipping people away but people kept coming. At some point it was too much for police to ship them away. I was happy to see so many peaceful people on the road marching to asset their right. There is some hope. I didn’t take many pictures. In fact you will find better pictures on twitter or on newspapers. But here are mine anyway. document.createElement('video'); People are being shipped to detention center. ...

Dove Cameron's New Wrist Tattoo Is a Symbol of Peace in Honor of Her Friend Cameron Boyce

Dove Cameron gets tattoos so often that it's "like a day in the life" for her, but the Descendants 3 star had special plans for her 11th piece of ink. In a YouTube video posted to her channel on Thursday, Cameron filmed the process of selecting a tattoo in honor of her friend Cameron Boyce, who died at age 20 from epilepsy. The tattoo, an image of a revolver shooting out a single rose, is also a symbol of Cameron's own views on gun control, which she and Boyce had in common. "It's sort of a ...

2020's Take on Last Year's Biggest Haircut Trend: the "Soft Blunt" Bob

Bob haircuts were to 2019 what Juicy Couture tracksuits were to 2001: abso-f*cking-lutely everywhere. Within the last 365 days, we saw cuts that were blunt! Shaggy! A-line or inverted! Diffuse-dried, flipped-under, and styled in every which way imaginable. (Celebrity hairstylist David Lopez summed up the trend's versatility perfectly: "Many, many bobs happened in 2019.") Still, like most things in life, there's plenty of room for growth - and the style is going to look slightly different in 2020...

I Finally Found an Acne Spot Treatment That Actually Gives Me Results

I've suffered from hormonal cystic acne since I was a teenager, and ever since those huge, painful, and embarrassing blemishes have been stressing me out.

The Jedi That Fucked

The Jedi Order has long been an establishment of hypocrisy. It’s what led to its undoing across generations of its existence multiple times.

PHOTOS: This forgotten gay mag was a New York City staple in the ’70s

Michael’s Thing was a New York City gay bar guide and magazine that ran for over a thousand issues, although it seems few issues were ever archived and there’s hardly any mention of it on the Internet. Here’s one account, however, from the late playwright Doric Wilson:   “Michael Giammetta published Michael’s Thing between 1970-2000 as a guide to cultural and social happenings of the GLTB community. It was the one of the main and most reliable sources of information. It also was a handy guide t...

The Zen of Bill Murray: I Want to Be “Really Here, Really in It, Really Alive in the Moment”

We all know, on the deepest level, what we have the potential to achieve; once in a great while, we even catch glimpses of just what we could do if only we put our minds to it. But what, if anything, does it mean to "put our minds to it"? In breaking down that cliché, we might look to the example of Bill Murray, an actor for whom breaking down clichés has become a method of not just working but living. In the 2015 Charlie Rose clip above, Murray tells of receiving a late-night phone call...
