10 Ways to Wear the Pat McGrath Divine Rose II Palette

I’ve been seeing readers mention receiving tracking numbers and the like for the recently-released (and now sold out) Pat McGrath Divine Rose II Palette, so I thought it would be useful to share some possible combinations to try with the palette. It appears that the palette will be restocked per the website as well. And as always, you don’t NEED the palette to get inspired and play around with similar colors you already own! About This Series Each look idea is cen...

Estee Lauder Pretty Vain, Power Trip, Excite Pure Color Envy Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Pretty Vain Estee Lauder Pretty Vain Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had a bit more of a sheen and glow about it than other shades in the range, which tend to look glossier. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly on my lips, but the actual consistency wasn’t as smoothing nor as flattering o...

The At-Home Life: Subscription Style Boxes Are Where It’s At

The At-Home Life: Subscription Style Boxes Are Where It’s At Subscription style boxes have always appealed to us. We love the idea of someone doing the hard work while we sit at home like the rich and famous, having a fashion show in our living room with whatever our online stylists send our way. In the middle of a pandemic, heading out to a store to try on and shop for clothes seems almost as fun as going to the dentist (and we really hate going to the dentist). We’ve put together a list of eig...

Sydney Grace Radiant Glow Loose Highlighter Review & Swatches

Radiant Glow Sydney Grace Radiant Glow Loose Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a light-medium gold with strong, warm yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. As a lot of loose powders go, the pigmentation definitely depended on how much product one picked up with a brush as it was readily picked up, but I considered it to be quite pigmented; definitely didn’t need an ultra-light hand when working with it but no need to heavily app...

Why I Stopped Journaling

I got my first journal when I was ten years old.  My entries were short descriptions of my day. Because I was ten, those entries mainly consisted of what I ate for lunch and the Super Nintendo game I played on a given day. I’d also write about adventures to the creek that my neighborhood pals and I went on and facts about my favorite baseball player, Frank Thomas .  Every now and then, I’d offer primitive soliloquies on various themes. On Father’s Day in 1992, I wrote an encomium to fat...

How to Hook Grip a Barbell

As you increase your weight in your deadlift or in Olympic lifts like cleans and snatches, grip becomes a limiting factor. As the weight gets heavier, the bar has a tendency to roll in your hands, making holding onto it for the duration of the lift difficult or even impossible. One way to counter the limiting grip  factor on the deadlift is to assume an alternate  grip —  or “mixed  grip” — with one hand supinated (underhand) and one hand pronated (overhand). As the bar starts to roll out o...

Rising Tides

Last night at 12:01am, Las Vegas casinos were able to reopen, and many of them did, with ready and willing tourists showing up before that time. The casinos have to make many modifications like spacing out slot machine patrons, limiting the number of players at table games, and keeping some aspects of their operations closed, but people can gamble once again. Like many people here, I have mixed feelings about this. While it may help the local economy (which heavily relies on tourism), it w...

Kosas Tropic Equinox Color & Light Palette Review & Swatches

Tropic Equinox Kosas Tropic Equinox Color and Light Palette ($34.00 for 0.32 oz.) consists of a darker, peachy-brown blush paired with a warm, peachy highlighter. This is the lower intensity level, so both shades are designed to be sheerer and more buildable, which they were. Both shades applied well over bare skin and had good longevity, but the highlighter’s tackier texture made it less compatible with more matte base products a...

When is longevity important to you?

It depends on what I’m doing.

Allyship: Schwarze Menschen brauchen echte weiße Verbündete – so wirst du eine*r

Hinweis: Aus Gründen der Lesbarkeit haben wir den englischen Begriff „allies“ teilweise mit “Verbündeten“ übersetzt. Es muss allerdings angemerkt werden, dass hinter dem Begriff eigentlich mehr steckt. Es geht nicht nur darum, mitfühlend und solidarisch zu sein, sondern andere Menschen aktiv zu unterstützen und sich für sie einzusetzen und zu engagieren. 2020 hat der schwarzen Community ein fast schon lähmendes Elend gebracht.

Breaking down David Warner and Nathan Lyon’s run-out of AB de Villiers – one of the most disrespectful dismissals in history

Many things happened during Australia’s win in the first Test of their ill-fated 2018 tour of South Africa. Some of them were cricket, some of them were David Warner falling out with people.
