NABLA Cosmetics Glimmer Light Cheek Palette Review & Swatches

Glimmer Light NABLA Cosmetics Glimmer Light Cheek Palette ($26.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a new, glittering trio of blushes. This is a palette for sparkle and glitter lovers, though they buff nicely into the skin and leave a very shiny, luminous finish that’s sparkling but doesn’t look like “dirt” at any angle (that I could detect, at least). I think that they appear more sparkly initially, but the sparkles are fine and flat enough that th...

Pat McGrath Decadence | 5 Ways to Dupe the Vibes

In light of a very frustrating launch that’s been fraught with communication issues (from announcing the wrong time publicly to Selfridges’ release date coming and going TWICE!), slow response times (from what I’ve heard from readers re: emails for status updates), and a quick-to-sellout collection… here are some ways to dupe the vibes of the Decadence palette, which will be re-released on 12/26 (reviewed here). I tried to “dupe the vibes” using Anastasia singles and popular palettes (newish and...

What do you like about cream eyeshadow? What don’t you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Cream Eyeshadow I love them for adding a shinier, more sparkly finish (with less falout) and just having a more intense finish overall. I know others love ’em for one-and-done looks, but I love creating color combos so I tend to reach for cream eyeshadows as bases or to use on the inner tearduct/lower lash line or on the lid. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Pat McGrath Galactic Gold Palette Swatches

Pat McGrath Galactic Gold Palette ($65.00) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette that includes six shades (three new, three previously released). It launched earlier this month, and someday, perhaps by December 21st, 2020, it will eventually launch at Selfridges. I ordered this through the Instagram early access, and it went via two-shipping so it came sooner than my order for the set of palettes (which might arrive at the end of this week… if I’m lucky).

This Cleansing Butter Has Nearly 300 5-Star Reviews and Costs Less Than $10

When you find a product good enough to repurchase three times and counting, there's only one thing to do: rave about it, which is exactly what I'm going to do when it comes to The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter ($10). I've tried many a gel, balm, and oil cleanser in my time, and this is by far my favorite cleansing balm, and best of all, it only costs $10. The balm doesn't boast a solid five-star rating for nothing, and it's been a favorite of skincare expert Caroline Hirons for ...

Yes, This Is Every Single Mascara You Can Get at Sephora (You're Welcome)

There are two types of people in the world: people who love mascara . . . and people who *really* love mascara. Now, while that's obviously a joke as there are many people out there who have no interest in that product (or in any eye-enhancing liners or shadows either) - but those people probably did not just click on an article all about mascara, right? If you're reading this right now, we're assuming you have at least a slight interest in mascara and may even be in the market for a brand new ...

Leo Varadkar opens up about the homophobic abuse he’s suffered since being named Taoiseach

Leo Varadkar become Ireland’s first, and the world’s fourth, openly gay head of government when he was named Taoiseach in 2017. But being the leader of his country’s government doesn’t mean he’s exempt from bigotry. Speaking to the Irish Sun, 40-year-old Varadkar is opening up for the first time about the homophobic abuse he’s suffered throughout his life and over the last few years especially. “If you’re mixed race and if you’re a person of color, you do experience a degree of racism and discr...

We Heard Sephora Shoppers Love These Lip Balms and, Whoops, We Need More Pockets

Until we run out of pockets and purses, there's always going to be room for more lip balms in our hearts and minds. A little gloss goes a long way, and a balm can work wonders on dry lips in Winter. Honestly, this love is so intense we could pretty much write an on-the-spot Dr. Seuss rhyming story about our passion - it'd start off: "Pop on that balm and keep things calm, on a plane or on a train, laying low or on the go." (Note: We never said we were poets.) But, our feelings don't matter here...

Netflix hopes to get to the bottom of those Aaron Hernandez bisexual rumors once and for all

Nearly three years after his death, the ghost of former NFL star/convicted murderer with an alleged bisexual past Aaron Hernandez haunts us still.

Women concerned all the men she’s dating have “effeminate” voices and “sound completely gay”

A woman says she keeps meeting great guys, but they all have the same problem: They say they’re straight, but they sound totally gay. She isn’t sure what to make of it, so she’s seeking advice from our pal Rich Juzwiak over at Slate. The woman is currently dating two different guys, both of whom have voices she finds troubling. “They both sound completely gay—like, out-of-the-closet, effeminate-speech gay,” she writes. “This is kind of a libido killer for me, and it makes my brain spin.” AdBri...
