Fenty Beauty Summertime Wine Cream Blush Review & Swatches

Summertime Wine Fenty Beauty Summertime Wine Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and fine, golden pearl throughout. It had more of a satin finish when applied to bare skin with light pearl, but it looked a lot dewier than it felt since it dried down to a non-sticky finish. The consistency was smooth, spreadable, and lightweight; it had moderate slip and...

Fenty Beauty Amber Cream Bronzer Review & Swatches

Amber Fenty Beauty Amber Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer ($32.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a light taupe with a satin-matte finish with neutral-to-cool undertones. It seemed to have a more true, neutral undertone when blended out enough (along the edges), but the color was a bit grayish. This particular shade was listed as a contour shade, though I’m curious if any cooler-toned folks might try it as a muted bronzer! Applied with a moderat...

MAC x Selena Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolours Reviews & Swatches

Siempre Selena MAC Siempre Selena Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ($21.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, though it was just shy of truly full coverage. The texture was fluid without being too watery nor too heavy, so it applied evenly, spread well, and didn’t settle into my lip lines or emphasize lip texture. It wore well for over ...

Lilacs out of the Dead Land: The Scent of Hope

Part I of T.S. Eliot's seminal work in modernist poetry The Waste Land, “The Burial of the Dead,” begins with an image of spring rain soaking down into the dried roots of a lilac bush. The speaker remains unnamed; it's not important, we're led to reflect ourselves on his thoughts. The pronoun us suggests the multiple characters in the five parts of the poem, but the setting of the infamous ope...

Are you wearing deodorant while sheltering at home?

Scent provides valuable information about personality traits and attractiveness. Since the 1920s, companies have made us anxious about our odor in order to sell us their products. Our disdain of personal smell is related to our fear of aging and death. With so many of our regular habits upended over the past six weeks, I held an informal poll on my social media channels asking who had quit wearing deodorant. As you can imagine, responses were varied. Some people include deodorant along with ma...

Podcast #604: The Boring Decadence of Modern Society

On the surface, it can feel like we’ve made a lot of technological, economic, and cultural progress during the past 30 years. But if you look closer, you start to notice that in a lot of ways, we’ve been running on repeat for several decades now. My guest today argues that this is what typically happens to rich and powerful societies: A period of growth and dynamism, such as we experienced after WWII, is followed by a period of stagnation and malaise. His name is Ross Douthat and his latest b...

MAC x Selena Lip Pencils Reviews & Swatches (Quick)

Selenaville MAC Selenaville Lip Pencil ($17.50 for 0.05 oz.) is a light, pink-red with cool undertones and a matte finish. It might have been the firmest, sharpest lip pencil I ever had the displeasure of swatching! It was physically painful to try and swatch it on my arm, which made it harder to work with, period. It would be best used as a liner but not to fill-in as a base as a result–too much tugging for semi-sheer to semi-opa...

Skin Hunger: Wie wirkt es sich auf die Psyche aus, wenn wir uns nicht berühren?

Menschen brauchen Berührungen. Vor zweihundert Jahren fanden französische Wissenschaftler*innen ein komplett vereinsamtes Kind in einem Wald. Sie nannten ihn Victor. Er war verhaltensgestört und wurde zunächst für dumm gehalten. Doch später fand man heraus, dass das sogenannte Wolfskind einfach komplett anders als andere Jungen aufgewachsen war und deswegen zum Beispiel weder sprechen noch aufrecht gehen oder Emotionen zeigen konnte. Dass er für konventionelle Verhältnisse so unterentwi...
