Sephora Has All the Skin Care We're Searching For in 2020

Self-care, for us, means paying attention to our complexion with the best skincare products.

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...

Holiday Candles: Editors' Choices for Warming Up the Season

Candle burning is a great touch for the holidays when the house becomes the abode where we seek to reconstruct happy memories from childhood or create new ones for the future. In many religions, candle lighting is a symbol, making us see what is important in life. In fact, the very basis of the winter solstice festivities revolves around light itself. Lux, in Latin.

Merry Christmas, And A Halcyon New Year ! 2020

Snow is slow to arrive in Vancouver this year, and it looks like we’re most likely going to miss out on a White Christmas. This is a Mistletoe just outside my apartment put up by the city to get everyone into a Christmassy mood. I’ve been pretty busy at work working on a new animated feature film that will be released in summer 2020, so this longer break over the new year to re-charge is much welcomed. I’m looking forward to playing some games on my PS4, probably starting with Sekiro, plus wa...

Growing up gay and Asian, everyone told me I wasn’t “good enough.” Turns out, everyone was wrong.

From a young age, I knew I was different. During one of my classes in second grade, I was caught talking in Mandarin with one of my Chinese classmates. Instead of simply telling us to stop, something had hit a nerve with my teacher. She paused the entire class and proceeded to lecture us in front of our peers. “This is America. We only speak English!” AdBridg.cmd.push(function() { AdBridg.display("div-gpt-ad-inarticle1"); }); That was the day I learned my culture was dangerous in the white s...

Revlon Va Va Violet, Love That Red, Wine with Everything (Pearl) Super Lustrous Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Va Va Violet Revlon Va Va Violet Super Lustrous Lipstick ($8.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a deep plum with subtle, cool undertones and a luminous sheen. It had medium color coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque pigmentation. The lipstick applied somewhat evenly, but it had a tendency to sink into my lip lines and did not adhere as well to the inner areas of my lips. The consistency was smooth, emollient but not heavy or overly slippery...

You’re home for the holidays and about to lose your damn mind

It’s the end of another year. You’re psyched that work has slowed down, and you’re about to have a nice stretch of time off, but there’s still that deep dark pit in your stomach because… you’re going home for the holidays. It can sometimes be stressful and overwhelming to return to the place that originally shaped us. For many of my clients, it took moving away and forming their own lives or families of choice to heal from the wounds of growing up LGBTQ in well-meaning but oppressive environmen...

Guys reveal how Grindr changed their lives

Hookups are only a few taps away with Grindr, but is that such a good thing? In a recent thread, Reddit users revealed how the app changed their lives, and as you might expect, the changes aren’t all upgrades. Read on… “It made me feel a little better about myself.

How not to respond to your gay son’s wedding invitation

I’ve never been particularly skilled at turning lemons into lemonade on my own, so it’s much better when the juice flows naturally. That’s what happened when one of the more excruciating incidents from my childhood led to a truly heartwarming moment to remember. I had just come home from the eighth-grade formal, where I asked the girl I had a crush on to dance. (The song playing was Journey’s “Open Arms” — so romantic, right?) Her answer: Well, she never actually gave me one. She just started l...

If you had done more research, what are some products you wouldn’t have purchased?

No answer is jumping out at me, but I’ll say that there have been times where a brand’s past performance has made me weary of future releases, and instead of buying six shades (out of 20+) to see how those performed… I’ve bought all 20+ and came away with a lot of disappointing/so-so reviews... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]
