Tom Ford Throb & Synthetica Lip Sparks Reviews & Swatches

Throb Tom Ford Beauty Throb Lip Spark ($55.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a bright, light-medium orange with moderate, warm undertones and flecks of gold and pink sparkle throughout.

Four Women In Tech On How Digital Voice Assistants Would Be Different If They Were Designed By Women

If your Amazon Echo’s Alexa weren’t gendered, would you speak to your device differently? According to this 2019 UN study, the answer, for many, is yes. The paper posits that voice assistants, most of which are gendered female, perpetuate problematic stereotypes of subservience and biases against women — even at an unconscious level. But what if women were the ones designing the voice assistants to begin with? Do factors like gender impact the way the products themselves are brought to ...

10 Exfoliating Toners That Make Getting Glowy Skin Shockingly Easy

Picking a favorite skincare product is like being forced to pick a favorite child, but whenever someone asks me the one I can't live without, I almost always say exfoliating toner. It wasn't until I started recommending one to every friend who would ask what their skincare routine was missing did I realize how much I loved them. Now, I use an exfoliating toner on a daily basis before bed to keep my combination skin in check. The result: a glowier, smoother, and softer complexion. Years ago, ton...

My Acne-Prone Skin Finally Stopped Breaking Out When I Switched to This Popular Cleanser

I've suffered from hormonal acne for over a decade; the amount of products that don't work for me is endless and frustrating. Throughout the years, however, I've gotten my skincare routine down to a science. I always had my favorite cleanser, toner, and hydrating serum on lock. I recently started getting facials every few months and my esthetician noticed it looked like I was over-exfoliating. I told her for years I've used a drugstore scrub cleanser with beads, and her face filled with horror. ...

The Surprising Value Of “Bad” Dates, According To Real People

Remember that one date with the “method actor” who didn’t believe in tipping? The one with the stand-up comedian who insisted on recording your back-and-forth for material? The one where your counterpart arrived 27 minutes late, wearing just one flip-flop? Naturally, the list goes on. But here’s a hot take: These dates, albeit “unsuccessful,” have their merit, too. Whether we’re pursuing eternal love, great sex, or solid banter over negronis, our sub-par dates can be just as formative as our...

But recently, everyone seems to want to know one specific thing: Where can they get a good suit that’s fashion-forward, but not too weird?

Taylor Swift's Step-by-Step Transformation For "The Man" Video Is Truly Wild to Watch

Despite fully expecting Taylor Swift to pop up in "The Man" music video with a more masculine look, I still wasn't 100-percent positive the video's star was actually her the first time watched it - well, until the big reveal at the end, that is. The song addresses issues of male privilege, and with the help of some heavy prosthetics and makeup, the singer transformed herself into "the man" for the music video in order to parody the double standards faced by women in our culture. I spent most of...
