Lethal Cosmetics Payload & Zero Day Glitch Liquid Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Payload Lethal Cosmetics Payload Glitch Liquid Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.24 oz.) seemed to have a blackened base with fine pearl and sparkle that had a multichromatic shift between bluish-purple to violet to peach to teal.

Maybe I smelt it at Esxence that year, but I honestly can’t remember – clearly it didn’t make an impression on me. The pitfall you can easily fall into at trade fairs is to only spend time with the wacky and caricatured given they stand out as exceptional and focused in your mind. It...

Keep Your House Cooler With a Quick 10-Minute Clean of Your Air Conditioner

Got your home’s air conditioner chugging away, but your house doesn’t feel as cool as you think it would? It might be time to clean up its condenser. The outside condenser unit of your central air conditioner is basically a giant fan surrounded by tiny metal fins (there’s also a condenser in there). These tiny fins can get caked with dust, pollen, and other detritus, reducing airflow from your unit. Reduced airflow means a less efficient air conditioner, which means a warmer house and more e...

I canceled my subscription to Amazon Prime right as the pandemic lockdowns began and 12 months later I don't miss it at all

Amazon cofounder and former CEO Jeff Bezos. Alex Wong/Getty Images It turns out that Amazon Prime isn't necessary, even if you're ordering from Amazon frequently. I canceled my subscription in May 2020, and it has had zero impact on order speed or pricing. On the plus side, I'm saving at least $120 annually on the expensive membership fee.

40 Hard Things You Need to Hear

I’m sitting here on the tenth anniversary of a dear friend’s passing, thinking about the last conversation I had with her.  With a soft, weak voice she told me her only regret was that she didn’t live every year with the same level of love, passion and purpose she had in the final two years of her life, after she was diagnosed with terminal cancer.  “I’ve accomplished so much recently.  And I’ve touched so many people,” she told me.  “If only I had listened to the good advice of my elders—if on...

More sex. Fewer fights. Has the pandemic actually been good for relationships?

A poll finds American adults are happy with their partnerships, perhaps because lockdown has pushed couples to growFrom the earliest days of the pandemic, experts anticipated that the stress of Covid-19 would wreak havoc on romantic relationships (and in some cases, they were right). But one recent survey suggests what few people could have predicted: for many of the couples that persevered, the pandemic may have actually improved the relationship.According to a national poll released in Februar...
