Pat McGrath Dreamscape & Lavendaring OpuLUST Lip Glosses Reviews & Swatches

Dreamscape Pat McGrath Dreamscape OpuLUST Lip Gloss ($30.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a deeper gold with warm, orange undertones and flecks of gold, copper, and pink sparkle and shimmer throughout. When I swatched it on my arm, it seemed more opaque, but when I applied it to my lips, it sheered out considerably (despite using the same amount of product consistently across the other seven shades, which did not sheer out like this one did). ...

Bite Beauty Cava & Sugarcane Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayons Reviews & Swatches

Cava Bite Beauty Cava Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light mauve with muted, slightly warmer undertones and a cream finish. It had a smooth, creamy texture that glided easily across my lips, but there was a bit of separation along my deeper lip lines–thankfully, it wasn’t enough to be noticeable in person until the last hour of wear. The lip crayon yielded opaque coverage in one stroke, which lasted ...

This New Makeup Trend Makes Pops of Color So Easy - and I Created 3 Looks That Prove It

Luckily, there's a new makeup trend on the horizon, and it's closing the gap between the two sides of the argument. Enter clean color.

The stuff Republicans are saying about Mitt Romney right now actually makes us feel sorry for the guy

Traitor. Rat. Loser. Disgusting human. Vindictive. Petulant child. Bitter. Piece of shit. Those are just a few of the adjectives Republicans are using to describe their former party leader, Sen. Mitt Romney, after he voted to convict Donald Trump earlier today. “The president asked a foreign government to investigate his political rival,” Romney said in an emotional speech on the Senator floor before casting his vote. “What the president did was wrong. Grievously wrong.” AdBridg.cmd.push(funct...

‘Birds of Prey’ costumes take inspiration from comics — and Margot Robbie

How Deleting Instagram for 30 Days Saved my Sanity

Travel blog by Travels of Adam (Hipster Blog) – Travels of Adam (Hipster Blog) - By now, it’s no surprise that 2019 was a pretty rough year for me personally. It was exacerbated by a difficult breakup at the end of the year, some financial problems, and a general malaise from all the news of the world. By the time December 1st rolled around, I had pretty much checked out for the year—unable and unwilling to do much work, and just generally ~ tired. Every little thing was affecting my mood;...

I Pretty Much Gave Up on My Nightmarish Eyebrows Until This $9 Pencil Came Along

I remember it like it was yesterday: I was in sixth grade having a makeover session with my best friend at the time, Chelsea. As the oldest child in my family, I was virtually clueless about applying foundation evenly or taking care of my brows. So when it came time for her to clean up my eyebrows, Chelsea let out an audible gasp and said quite clearly, "I think you have the longest eyebrow hairs I have ever seen." I wasn't exactly embarrassed - we were BFFs at the time, after all - but I quickl...

Susan struggles with her own laziness, even after getting evicted from her a...
