Dior Coral Vibes (002) DiorSkin Nude Luminizer Review & Swatches

Coral Vibes (002) Dior Coral Vibes (001) DiorSkin Nude Luminizer ($50.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a brighter, light-medium pink base with warmer, peachy-gold shimmer throughout that gave it a luminous sheen. While some highlighters with this color look more gold than pink, this looked mostly pink with a hint of golden sheen at certain angles. The texture was smooth to the touch, more firmly pressed (so no powderiness) but yielded to a mod...

Finding Order in Chaos

We could say that we live in a pretty chaotic world and that the desire for clarity is an attempt to impose order on the apparent chaos around us. We tame nature and build cities. We build roads across natural landscapes. We seek scientific rules to predict the behavior patterns of matter and energy. When we bring order to chaos, there’s a certain beauty to it. A well constructed city can be beautiful. A well-organized home or office can be beautiful too. Yet what do we do once we’ve cr...

Revlon Softsilver Red, Softsilver Rose, Love That Pink Super Lustrous Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Softsilver Red Revlon Softsilver Red Super Lustrous Lipstick ($8.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a bright, deeper pink-coral with subtler, warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had very fine shimmer but there was enough that it seemed to straddle both frost and metallic (slight luminosity). It had nearly opaque coverage in a single layer, so it was a bit more pigmented than anticipated. The lipstick had a lightweight, lightly emollient tex...

India’s brilliant Bombay duck

When I was a little girl growing up in Bombay, June was the month I looked forward to the most. It was the month when the charred, inky monsoon clouds, clipped with streaks of lightning, brushed away the fetid summer heat. It was when I went back to school with my new books, wrapped carefully in crackling-new brown paper. Best of all, June was also the month for the Bombay duck to grace the kitchens of Parsi homes such as mine. This delicious monsoon specialty, which is most plentiful and easies...

A Dad in Toronto is having difficultly navigating the family politics surrounding his son’s open marriage, so he’s turning to advice columnist Dear Ellie for help. “Our adult son’s in a long-standing gay and open marriage, with a young son,” Dad writes. “They have a third mutual partner who doesn’t live with them but spends a lot of time with them.” He continues, “He’s very good with their child and we find him very likable.

This Shower Oil Is the Only Thing That's Been Able to Rehydrate My Dry Winter Skin

Even though I've lived on the East Coast for several years, this California girl still hasn't gotten used to New York Winters. Exhibit A: the dry, chapped patch of skin that appears on my shins like clockwork every December. No amount of lotion or balm seems to work. In one particularly desperate moment, I even resorted to slathering Vaseline on the area in hopes of stopping the itching. I needed a better solution - something that would keep my skin soft and moisturized no matter how cold and d...

Councilmembers decide to keep 1996 resolution denouncing homosexuality

Change happens slowly. But it happens even slower in Greenville County, South Carolina. Members of the Greenville County Council have just decided they won’t rescind a 1996 resolution that denounces homosexuality because they’ve got more important things to do. Upstate Pride SC, a local LGBTQ nonprofit, has been pushing for the council to strip the homophobic resolution from the books for months.

Escada Flor del Sol Eau de Toilette Memories of Old with a Sweet Powerful Juicy Punch

Escada Flor del Sol Eau de Toilette is the brand’s traditional Spring/Summer 2020 limited edition perfume launch.

Escada fragrances are general a blind buy for me. I have no need to sniff or try them before purchasing them easily...

The Only Thing Better Than the Food at Your Super Bowl Party? These Nail Art Looks

It's hard to say whether my newfound interest in the Super Bowl stems from the fact that it's the only televisual event that brings Americans together like The Bachelor or the Ford Bronco chase or if it's because I'm from Kansas City and the Chiefs have finally earned a spot in the championship game for the first time in 50 (!) years. Either way, it's a day people all across the country go all-out - food, beer, beauty, you name it. In terms of that last category, if you're celebrating Super Bowl...
