Bobbi Brown After Party, Rock & Red, Slow Jam Crushed Oil-Infused Glosses Reviews & Swatches

After Party Bobbi Brown After Party Crushed Oil-Infused Gloss ($27.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a deep red with subtle, cool undertones and a high-shine, glossy finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage in a single layer, which could have applied more evenly, and it also settled into my lip lines slightly (enough to be noticeable in person), so it was one of the weaker-applying shades in the range. The consistency was still smooth, plush, and...

NARS Illicit Blush Review & Swatches

Illicit NARS Illicit Powder Blush ($30.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy-brown with moderate, warm undertones paired with a satin finish.

We met the freaky cast of ‘The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.’ They have us enchanted.

Kiernan Shipka with Miranda Otto & Lucy Davis in ‘The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ Vancouver doesn’t have a reputation for blizzards. How fitting then, that the day we landed in the Pacific coastal city, the snow landed also—several inches in fact. We awoke to find the city buried beneath a massive snowstorm, and its citizens slipping and trudging to get on about their lives. In a way, the freak nature of the snow set the perfect tone for the trip. We’d journeyed north to visit the set of ...

Sunday Firesides: The Weight of Worthy Work

Humans can be funny creatures. Especially when it comes to our relationship with work and effort, which might best be described as a constant tension between attraction and repulsion. We balk at tackling a difficult project. Then feel immensely satisfied in its completion. Then balk at doing another. We feel lonely and desirous of connection. Then reach out to others. Then chafe at the obligations that go along with relationships. Then seek to detach ourselves. Then feel lonely again. We think...

Becoming Aware of Your Reflections

Once when I was going through customs at the airport in Winnipeg, Canada to visit Rachelle, I got pulled aside for extra questioning. The suspicious young agent somehow convinced himself that I was on an errand of ill intent and interrogated me about my reasons for visiting. He went through the files on my laptop, searching for evidence of illegal activity. He read through the recent text messages on my cell phone. Much to his chagrin, I wasn’t actually crossing the border to destroy Canadian so...
