Deep to Dark Jouer Deep to Dark Sunswept Bronzer Duo ($30.00 for 0.39 oz.) is a new, permanent bronzer duo designed for deeper skin tones. As both shades are more matte and slightly thinner in consistency with the deeper shade taking a little extra effort to diffuse and blend out, particularly over bare skin, due to its inclination in darkening a touch when it came into contact with the natural oils on my skin. Otherwise, both shad...

Main Quest, Subquest, Side Quest, or Minigame

This was an idea that came up in a discussion thread in Conscious Growth Club this week, and I thought it might make an interesting article.

Diable Au Corps: Devil in The Flesh Or The Temptations of Royal Life

I found out about the pretentiously-named fragrance Diable Au Corps Donatella Pecci Blunt by accident. Firstly, this little-known fragrance was compared (by its proud owners) alongside some of my favorite leather chypres of the 80s, such as Bel Ami Hermes and Paloma Picasso Mon Parfum. Secondly, its name - Devil In the Flesh, which is quite defiant for a feminine fragrance - recalls the scandal...

Sunday Firesides: What Would Disappoint Your 16-Year-Old Self About the Current You?

Your 16-year-old self had hopes, values, dreams — a vision of what your life would be like in the future. What would disappoint him about who you’ve actually become? It’s easy to dismiss such a question out of hand, arguing that it doesn’t matter what your 16-year-old self thinks, since he was immature, ignorant, and something of a wanker. Which is probably true. But these rationalizations can be ex post facto justifications created to cover the cognitive dissonance of failing to live up to you...

What’s your favorite type of finish for your highlighter?

I don’t know if I really have a favorite! I love highlighter in most forms. I’d say that I tend to favor something with noticeable shimmer or sheen, so anything very subtle doesn’t tend to be my vibe. I am happy to wear something more glittery/sparkly but also love something more luminous and... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Rebecca Solnit: ‘Younger feminists have shifted my understanding’

It’s a myth that wisdom comes only with age, the writer argues. Young women and girls offer new tools to useAs you grow older you become an immigrant from a vanished country, a country some of your peers may remember but the young may find unimaginable or incomprehensible. You could call it the land of before; before some great change, before we did things this way, before we decided that was unacceptable, before we shed new light on an old problem. I was shaped by a world that no longer quite e...

Thigh Dimples, Gray Hair, and an Underarm Situation

We were at Burger King because my kids like Whoppers and it was baseball season and it was just easy. I reached over to the nice lady handing me our food and my sweet, precious delight of a child took hold of the skin UNDER MY ARM. You know the place, where triceps are supposed to be.

With her sweet little fingers, she jiggled my arm like it was JELLO. Let’s t...
