NARS Shock ‘Em, Slam, Stricken Powerchrome Eye Pigments Reviews & Swatches

Shock 'Em NARS Shock ‘Em Powerchrome Loose Eye Pigment ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a shiny, sparkling light, golden beige with more of a transparent base. It was one of the chunkiest eyeshadows I’ve come across, and the size of the clumps and flakes was daunting (though it doesn’t contain any plastic glitter). It would have been easier to work with if the larger pieces broke up and could be really smoothed out, but it was hard to get...

Essence Beloved The Blush Review & Swatches

Beloved Essence Beloved The Blush ($2.99 for 0.17 oz.) is a deep pink with moderate, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The powder looked nearly matte to my eye, but applied and blended out, it looked like it had a more natural finish–still matte and not at all noticeably shimmery. It had rich color coverage, so I’d recommend using a light-to-moderate hand to pick up product if one wanted to build up color (as the formula was...

Laser Hair Removal: The Pros and Cons

Our need to remove hair starts with adolescence and continues through much of our adult years. There are number of ways to get rid of unwanted hair but very few methods remove hair permanently. Moreover, no one therapy works best or is right for everyone. There are methods that are easy and inexpensive (shaving) and there are hi-tech ones that are a little heavy on the pocket (laser). Here, we have listed the pros and cons of the most popular methods of hair removal to help you decide b...

Reducing Mental Effort – Part 5

Our series on reducing mental effort continues. Minimize context switching During a normal workday, it’s easy to begin new tasks without fully finishing previous tasks. Sometimes we do this for the sake of variety, but this can be a very inefficient approach. Each time you switch contexts, your mind has to release the previous context and load in a new context. Think of a context as all of the key ideas that link with the task at hand. It often takes 15-30 minutes to load in a new ...

Jennifer Lopez Has Had So Many Great Nail Art Looks, We Can't Pick a Favorite

One the scale from one to Jennifer Lopez for how extra we like our beauty looks, we aim for J Lo, always.

The Curly Hair Challenge on TikTok Is One We Can All Get Behind

It seems like every time we open TikTok, another challenge pops up. This time, it's the "Heat Damage Check," or the curly hair challenge.

7 Best Flavored Condoms in 2020

Love the weird, rubbery taste of slippery latex? If you’re reading this post, we’re guessing you don’t. Although condoms are the perfect solution to preventing STDs, they’re also a bit of a nuisance sometimes.

I Got Undereye Fillers For the First Time, and the Results Are Game-Changing

I didn't grow up trying on my mom's lipstick or learning passed-down beauty secrets. A California flower child through and through, my mother has always been all about aging naturally, so things like Botox, dermal fillers, plastic surgery, or any other face-altering procedures were, if I'm being honest, scoffed at in my family for the majority of my life, written off as things that only serve to make older people look silly. Of course times have changed, even since I graduated from college near...

This Natural Mascara Makes Me Look Wide Awake and Doesn't Irritate My Sensitive Eyes

The first time I ever tried mascara was an unmitigated disaster. I was 13 and gleefully piled on a few coats of one particularly popular drugstore mascara before school. By the time I sat down in first period, my lash line was itchy, red, and irritated. It was clear that the sensitive skin around my eyes wasn't going to tolerate just any formula - I needed something a little gentler. Since then, I've been searching for the perfect natural mascara: a formula that would give me the long, dark las...

Iran is forcing gay men to undergo sex reassignment surgery or be executed

Well, this is terrifying. The government in Iran has begun forcing gay men to undergo sex reassignment surgery or risk being executed in an effort to cleanse the country of all homosexuality. Being transgender became legal in Iran in 1987. Homosexuality, however, remains punishable by death. In an interview with the Sun, activist Shadi Amin explains that the Iranian government considers homosexuality a disease. Often, the “treatment” prescribed for the disease is changing a person’s sex. “The g...

Don't Let Brown Hair Go Dull or Brassy With These Haircare Products From Sephora

It's not just blondes who face washed-out color or brassiness in their styles. Cooler-toned, ashy brunette shades like mushroom brown can end up a little too warm over time, and warmer browns and "twilighted hair" could turn dull from sun exposure, hard water, or repeated chemical processes. These haircare products from Sephora keep brunettes top of mind and get to the bottom of all that. There are things to add color, fix color, or just offer a little TLC to brittle, stressed ends.
