Marc Jacobs Beauty Shimmy Dip, Copperazzi, Smoked Glass See-quins Liquid Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Shimmy Dip (78) Marc Jacobs Beauty Shimmy Dip (78) See-quins Glam Glitter Liquid Eyeshadow ($26.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a light gold with moderate, warm yellow undertones and flecks of sparkle over a metallic finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage that could be built up to medium to semi-opaque coverage, but I’d recommend applying no more than two layers as the product added noticeable texture and looked “chunky” close-up. From a nor...

Gucci Mémoire d'Un Odeur: Hits and Misses

  A lot has been written, said, and seen about Gucci's Mémoire d'une Odeur, and some of my colleagues have even picked it as one of the best fragrances of the year.

Censors nix ‘Rise of Skywalker’ gay kiss in two countries

Fresh off a critical drubbing and falling short on the opening weekend box office, The Rise of Skywalker also faces censorship of a same-sex kiss. The BBC reports that prints of the film in Singapore and the United Arab Emirates deleted the kiss–the first-ever same-sex kiss in a Star Wars film–to retain a PG-13 rating. Furthermore, it’s unclear if Disney or Lucasfilm deleted the kiss for other territories as well. News of the kiss–which appears in one brief shot–ignited immediate speculation ov...

Former Fox News producer insists gay culture at network is thriving but can’t provide any evidence

A former Fox News producer is pushing back against depictions of gay culture at the “most polarizing brand in cable news” in the new film Bombshell. Erin Gaetz was a producer at Fox News from 2013 to 2015 before leaving to work for Jeb Bush’s failed presidential campaign. She openly calls the network the “most polarizing brand in cable news,” but is it as horrible as Bombshell makes it seem? According to Gaetz, the answer is no. (Remember, of course, that she’s a Fox News alum, so you can decid...

Tarotscopes that slay: For the solar eclipse in Capricorn

Remember that iconic scene in Moonstruck? You know the one. Where Nicolas Cage‘s character tells Cher’s character that he’s in love with her and she slaps him twice, hard. And then she says her classic line: Snap out of it! Well that is essentially the energy of Capricorn Season.  It’s a hard slap across the face from someone who actually loves you very much. It’s time to snap out of whatever magical thinking you’ve been living in and face reality. Because the Zodiac is a progression, Capricorn...

Liam Payne’s debut album bombs after accusations of biphobia

One Direction’s Liam Payne dropped his debut album LP1 earlier this month and the verdict is in: despite a heavy promotional campaign, the album is somewhere between a bomb and a dud. Not only did LP1 fail to hit the UK top 10, which is pretty crazy considering that just a few years ago Payne was one of the biggest pop stars in the country, but it only reached #111 on the US Billboard charts. It has also received mixed reviews by the few critics who have bothered to write anything about it. Muc...
