ColourPop Georgette Super Shock Cheek Review & Swatches

Georgette ColourPop Georgette Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a bright, almost neon in its vividness, orange-coral with faint, barely-there gold pearl through a mostly matte finish. It was richly pigmented when applied with a fingertip and more medium, buildable when applied with a brush. The texture was lightly emollient without being too slippery, so it was easy to pat onto my cheeks whether over bare skin or over founda...

ColourPop Fab & Soft Side Lippie Stix Reviews & Swatches

Fab ColourPop Fab Lippie Stix ($7.00 for 0.0352 oz.) is a light, peachy brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that was somewhat buildable, but it was prone to pulling away along my lip lines and settled into them over time. The texture had a smoother, more velvety consistency, so it didn’t have the traditional slip/creaminess but didn’t tug during application. The color stayed on d...

How important is wear time in an eyeshadow for you?

My days are spent indoors, often with just my husband or family, so having perfect eyeshadow all day long isn’t necessary but I don’t like touching up or having to worry about things creasing/migrating… and continual fallout is irritating to my eyes! I need something to wear well enough for 10... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

A trip to the dump is one of my great pleasures in life – and I’m not alone

Everything has its place at the dump, no matter how abject or broken. No wonder there were queues when it reopened after lockdownA couple of miles from my home, down on the other side of the motorway, in a semi-industrial scrubland of building-supply merchants, gearbox specialists and a mysterious warehouse called Limbs and Things, lies the Household Waste Recycle Centre. At least, the council calls it the “HWRC”; everyone else calls it the dump. I have visited this enchanted acre seven or eight...

Daisy Haggard: ‘I love getting older. I care less about what people think’

The actor, 43, on hiding from her children in bed, hanging out with Matt LeBlanc and her love of WotsitsI do all my writing in bed. Not due to decadence, but because it’s the place I can hide from my children most effectively.My recent Bafta nomination genuinely came as a huge shock. I assumed it was Breeders that had been shortlisted, not me [for female performance in a comedy programme]. When I finally clicked, I blurted out, “Good God!” I don’t think I’ll win, but if by some miracle I did, my...

Saturday Links

Curated links for your weekend reading: In a World of Narratives, Be Radically Committed to Reality I’m convinced that the biggest emerging fissure in Western culture is not necessarily between political left and right as much as those fiercely committed to reality (even when it goes against the narrative) and those who elevate the narrative (whether left or right) above reality.

Paris Lees: ‘It drives me crazy when people introduce me as a trans activist’

Now, despite the pain of revisiting those years, she’s telling her story in fullParis Lees always knew she would write the story of her life. She knew it when she was a teenager in Hucknall, just north of Nottingham, getting beaten up in alleyways, imagining that her bullies would get to read about her in the paper.

Kathleen Stock: taboo around gender identity has chilling effect on academics

Culture of silencing any challenge to prevailing ideology is damaging academic freedom, says professorThe press release that accompanies Prof Kathleen Stock’s new book says she wants to see a future in which trans rights activists and gender-critical feminists collaborate to achieve some of their political aims. But she concedes that this currently seems fanciful. As far as she is concerned, the book, Material Girls, sets out her stall – and she knows a lot of people will find it distasteful.Sto...

My mum escaped the cruelty of Ireland’s mother and baby homes. I might not be alive if she hadn’t

While writing about the notorious laundries for ‘fallen women’, novelist Esther Freud was chilled to discover how close her own mother came to ending up in oneMy mother’s relationship with her parents was uneasy. Born into a strict Irish Catholic family, she’d been evacuated as a baby, sent to a convent boarding school at seven, and when, at 18, she found herself pregnant, she was so fearful of their condemnation that she kept the news a secret. It was some years later that a relative saw her in...

Forbidden Perfumes and Their Mysteries

The history of perfumery is long and vast and is often confused with the history of humanity itself since the sense of smell, as the most primitive sense, was a determining factor for the evolution of man. Since antiquity, perfumes were associated with religious practices, linked to purification, communication with the divine, and, on many occasions, magic and seduction, directly linked to sexua...
