Zoeva Unbelievable Visionary Light Face Powder Review & Swatches

Unbelievable Zoeva Unbelievable Visionary Light Multi-Use Face Powder ($26.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark yellow gold with a sparkling, metallic finish. It was intensely pigmented in a single layer, and the texture seemed a bit more yielding than others in the range, so it picked up better with a brush (without having to be heavier-handed with it). The consistency was smooth to the touch, dense and firm but not stiff, ...

Here’s why you shouldn’t mourn the loss of Mayor Pete

It was the Sunday afternoon slump: the end of a sunny weekend in Los Angeles, where I live, and I was coming to grips with the reality of the work week ahead. Around 4:45 pm PT came the first news that former South Bend Mayor and Democratic nominee hopeful Pete Buttigieg had suspended his incredibly inspiring campaign, as polls showed him lagging badly in Super Tuesday. My heart sank. I had been supporting Mayor Pete from the beginning. I had been monitoring his every TV appearance, donating to ...

Sunday Firesides: The Law of Sacrifice

At the end of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Indy is dangling over a chasm, his father gripping one of his arms, while he reaches out with the other in an attempt to grasp the Holy Grail. But his father can’t hold onto him much longer, and it’s clear Indy can’t have the grail and save his own life too; he has to make a decision. “Indiana,” his dad says gently, “let it go.” The adventurer turns his determined face to his father, and offers him his other hand. While the stakes aren’t typica...

Perfume Re-creation Rebranding Part 3: The Case of Goutal Paris

Rebranding is a process which we often stumble upon when a fragrance line reimagines itself. Different elements highlighted, a new presentation, a novel design, maybe even a marketing repositioning reflected in price, distribution, and placement. Let's face it: It's important to acknowledge that which does not adapt, ultimately dies. It's the law of evolution and it applies to perfumery and the ... Read full article: Perfume Re-creation Rebranding Part 3: The Case of Goutal Paris from Fragran...

Reducing Mental Effort – Part 6

Our series on reducing mental effort continues. Do less One often overlooked way to reduce mental effort is simply to do less. Pull back from obligations. Decline invitations. Withdraw from projects till your plate is less full. Working with a very full plate can be stimulating, but it’s best as a short-term condition. In the long run, it’s great to have excess capacity, especially for developing fresh creative ideas, investing in some long-term projects that will never be urgent, and...

"Roswell finally outed himself as rich when he volunteered to front the travel costs for a group of Oberlin students who wanted to attend a climate-change conference."

"That’s when two housemates told him about an organization called Resource Generation (RG). A nonprofit group based in New York, Resource Generation focuses on organizing wealthy young people to recognize their unearned privilege, make peace with it — and then relinquish much of it by giving away a large percentage of their money.... At conferences, in webinars and in local working groups, and through RG books and peer-to-peer mentorship, members learn how to shed entitled assumptions. One bedro...

6 times Bad Bunny proved to be one of the most woke LGBTQ allies out there

Puerto Rican trap artist Bad Bunny, whose real name is Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, made headlines this week when he spoke openly about his sexuality to the LA Times. When asked how he identifies, the 25-year-old said he wasn’t particularly interested in labeling himself. Like many of his peers, he views sexuality as fluid. “It does not define me,” he explained. “At the end of the day, I don’t know if in 20 years I will like a man. One never knows in life.” AdBridg.cmd.push(function() { AdB...

That time I had a $2000 panic attack over my premature male pattern baldness

I’ve had a lot of panic attacks, but only one of them cost me $2000. It was completely avoidable, too. I could have twirled a fidget spinner, called a counselor, meditated, or had a beer. But since I didn’t have any of those things, and since I’d recently quit drinking, I just skipped all of that and went straight to the emergency room. Time saver! It all started when I woke up one day in my mid-twenties and thought, “My hair is growing thin,” then concluded, “I’m never going to get laid,”...

Are you more or less comfortable purchasing products online than a few years ago?

Definitely a lot more comfortable buying online since I make most of my purchases that way! That being said, my purchasing decisions come from me as a reviewer vs. me as a consumer. I think I’d be more comfortable/confident as a consumer, but I would still be cautious about preferring retailers... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

“I was told playing gay would hurt my career” Justin Xavier & Damian Quinn talk ‘Road Head’

Writer Justin Xavier on the set of ‘Road Head’ We’ve seen naked. Then again, so has anyone familiar with the cult holiday comedy Shared Rooms, about four queer couples falling in love on Christmas. Xavier appears as an actor in the film, and spends most of his scenes showing off his assets. Never one to show fear of artistic risks, Xavier has also added the role of screenwriter to his resume. His first film as writer, Sick For Toys (in which he also appears on screen) gained a cult followin...

A queer POTUS, Wendy boycott, and gayer hip hop: my 2020s LGBTQ wishlist

If you’re not looking back consumed in anger, you can look forward filled with hope. It may seem like the most obvious deduction, but in these fragile, polarizing times, it’s easy to forget the 33-year-old lesson of George Michael’s first solo single: You gotta have faith … and hope. I was reminded of this while doing a podcast interview based around my recent Queerty article “Gay black lives mattered more than ever in the 2020s.” At the end of the chat, the hosts asked me about my hopes for th...

Anastasia Beverly Hills Launched Its First Mascara and It’s Just as Good As You'd Expect

Makeup lovers and mascara fanatics, today is a special day: Anastasia Beverly Hills has finally announced it's launching its first mascara - the Lash Brag Volumizing Mascara ($25) - and after a full month of testing it, I have to admit that it's as good as I'd hoped it would be. It's hard to believe, but Anastasia Beverly Hills (ABH) - a brand known for its genius eye makeup offerings - didn't have a mascara until now. Sure, there was a mascara topcoat back in 2015, but they've never had a real...

The T20 World Cup final will be decided by whether or not India can run “all across the ground”

India play Australia in the T20 World Cup final. You can read all sorts of match previews, but we assure you the match will be decided on India’s ability to run “all across the ground.” There are many different factors affecting the outcome of a cricket match, but some are far more important than others. Speaking after a rubbish 2018 T20 tri-series against Australia and England, India captain Harmanpreet Kaur identified one overwhelming weakness in her team. “We need fit players in the t...

‘My baby had devils’ eyes’: the reality of postpartum psychosis

He was only months old when I heard ‘the voice of God’ telling me he must dieAccording to Korean tradition, after a baby is born, mother and baby do not leave the house for the first 21 days. Long cords of peppers and charcoal are hung in the doorway to ward away guests and evil spirits. At the end of the 21 days, a prayer is given over white rice cakes. After 100 days, there is a large celebration of survival, with pyramids of fruit and lengths of thread for long life.When my son was born, I wa...

‘I’m a human calculator’: what’s it like to be a child genius – or to raise one?

Jeeva could read at 15 months. Luca could do his times tables in reception. Nathan had a book deal by eight. Meet the child prodigiesWhat’s it like to be a child genius? In the past five years, under-17 membership of Mensa – the high-IQ society open to those with intelligence scores in the top 2% of the population – has risen by half, from 1,334 to 1,991, partly as a result of the organisation reaching out to schools and colleges across the country. But children of exceptional ability haven’t al...
