MAC Loud & Clear Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Trompe L'Ol MAC Trompe L’Ol Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light-medium, yellowed beige with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque coverage with a soft, moderately powdery texture that was a bit thinner. There was some fallout if I wasn’t careful with placement and how I worked with it, so I’d definitely recommend some care to avoid it lightening colors near it. This shade lasted well for seven and a half h...

If You Want To Make A Point, Make It Real

I started my career as a visual designer. For the first few working years of my professional life, my days were dominated by pictures over text. Over the years my skill set, tools, and approach to work evolved. Written communication helped manage team and client expectations. Verbal communication was also useful, especially in situations where you find yourself going toe to toe with fellow A-type executives where a sharp mind and wise tongue are mandatory requirements. But recently, I was remin...

A reborn Persian Empire captured Rome’s lands—and its emperor

For the next five centuries, the Iranian plateau became ruled by other empires, until a new Persian dynasty took power. Fiercely proud of their roots, these new kings—the Sassanians—restor...

Turns Out, There's a Reason This $25 Eye Shadow Primer Is Ridiculously Popular

I'm more of a lipstick person than an eye shadow gal, but not by choice. All my makeup-wearing days, I've been plagued by oily eyelids. I gave up on elaborate eye looks long ago, when I realized it didn't matter how expensive my eye shadow was, it would inevitably clump together in one solid line at the crease after an hour. If you've ever stood in a mirror gently using your finger to fan out pooled pigments, you know the struggle. Years ago, a makeup artist introduced me to MAC Pro Longwear Pai...

Lawmaker hopes to prevent sham marriages by forcing people to legally state their sexual orientations

A Republican lawmaker from Iowa has just introduced legislation that would force people to formally state their sexual orientations to the government in an effort to protect unsuspecting women from marrying dishonest gay men. Senate File 2130 proposes that anyone who applies for a marriage license must first specify whether they are gay, straight, bisexual, questioning, or “unsure” about their sexual orientation. (There’s also a space to fill in any identity that falls outside of the five liste...

20 Times Lupita Nyong’o Had an Unforgettable Hair Moment on the Red Carpet

If there's one thing Lupita Nyong'o is known for (besides her Oscar-winning acting), it's her willingness to try just about anything with her hair. Between intricate braids and fabulous ponytails, we can't help but stay inspired by all of her versatile hairstyles. But what we love most is that the actress has been quick to shut down the notion that straight, silky hair is the golden standard when it comes to "beautiful hair." Over the years, she's been extremely vocal about how proud she is to s...

My Mom Makes Me Uncomfortable

Just to make my situation a little more clear; I’m a 15-year-old girl and I was sexually abused from the ages 5 to 7 by a “friend” I had before we moved. This does affect me in the sense that I hate for anyone to touch me anywhere on my body and I have some trust issues but, it does not make me uncomfortable around people. Now, despite me not being uncomfortable around people, my mom DOES make me very very uncomfortable and I’m not quite sure why. Anytime she touches me, whether she kisses me, h...
