How the Language of Beauty Needs to Change

The language we use is important and has consequences.  Adjusting our language (or being aware of the impact of language) is a way we can reduce harm as individuals on an on-going basis.

NARS Quirimba Matte Bronzing Powder Review & Swatches

Quirimba NARS Quirimba Matte Bronzing Powder ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish.

I’ve noticed that mattes that darken are often a little drier and more difficult to blend out. I had the best luck applying with a fluffi...

Ineke Hothouse Flower A Very Special Bottles and Samples Giveaway

Working with gardenia for a perfumer presents its own challenges. The flower doesn't yield a sufficient or steadily available extract (though there is one in extremely limited quantities) so an approximation is conducted through the synergy of pliable materials. When one finds the one which tilts just so, it's a remarkable thing. There are many gardenia fragrances out there — not all of them f...

She was toting a very large white handbag and later was wearing a matching face mask with tiny metallic stars.... and White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany... was in a closefitting double-breasted blazer with gold metallic buttons and skinny trousers.

Ich war drei Jahre alt, als er gewaltvoll von weißen Polizisten zusammengeschlagen wurde.
