UOMA Beauty Love & Shetore Hypnotic Impact Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Love UOMA Beauty Love Hypnotic Impact High-Shine Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, reddish-plum with soft, warm undertones and barely-there gold pearl throughout a glossier finish. It had sheer to semi-sheer color coverage, which applied evenly but could have been more forgiving of lip lines. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and like an emollient balm that was lightly tacky after the initial application. It lasted well ...

"Reader, I rolled my eyes. I know that’s not the kind or constructive thing to do when someone is brave enough to come out, but I’m afraid I couldn’t help it..."

"... my old gay eyes rolled involuntarily....When I came out, 20 years ago, I wasn’t worried that people might think I was declaring myself queer because it was cool – it was decidedly not cool... Last time I checked, demisexuals weren’t exactly an oppressed minority fighting for equal rights. They are just people who aren’t sexually attracted to others unless they form a strong emotional bond with them first.

Review: Paprika Brasil Hermessence by Hermès

Paprika Brasil is rarely the hero of perfume reviews and probably the least lauded of all in the Hermessence collection. It was met with a 'boo' from perfume bloggers, and the admiration of perfume lovers is lavished on other fragrances of Jean-Claude Ellena - like Ambre Narguile, Vetiver Tonka, Vanille Galante, Osmanthe Yunnan, Rose Ikebana...

Over Here Asking for a Friend But is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Too Elite?

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opened for early access a few days ago and this week Icons and Ambassadors both got their chance to shop early. I actually didn’t make a high tier this year and I’m sort of gobsmacked about that. I’m also pretty behind on scoring Ulta Diamond Status as well this year and Sephora Rouge. Why? I’m not sure. I tend to shop at Nordy’s a lot likewise for both Sephora and Ulta. I do find it easier to reach a higher reward status tier with Nordstrom simply because i...

ILIA Fame Daylite Highlighter Review & Swatches

Fame ILIA Fame DayLite Highlighting Powder ($34.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium copper with warmer, more orange undertones and lighter, golden shimmer throughout. The texture was soft, silky, and lightly powdery, and I found using a lighter hand or less-dense brush ideal to avoid over-applying product. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out without difficulty. The more I blended it o...

I Dunno Who Has To Hear This But You Don’t Need to Steam Your Vagina

Watching people steaming their vaginas on Tiktok is one of life’s little nuggets of weird and unusual. I dunno who needs to hear this but you don’t need to steam your vagina nor do you need to lighten it (I remember Huda, I remember…!). Believe me your vagina is doing just fine. Don’t bother her. She’s chilling, living her best life, and she totally knows how to take care of herself. It’s so odd watching the evolution of a new platform like Tiktok because everything that’s old is new again....

Podcast #723: Men Without Chests

“We make men without chests and expect from them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst.” While this quote from C.S. Lewis is often cited, few completely understand what Lewis meant by it, nor understand the book from which it was taken, The Abolition of Man, which, unlike Lewis’s more popular works of fiction and Christian apologetics, is a broad philosophical treatise aimed at everyone, and perhaps the most admired and yet least accessible of ...

Take an online course on top of the already demanding schedule they have. Transfer to an Islamic school. (If they are blessed with a good one the school will have good secular studies and...

The Shifting Goals of Conventional Figure Flattery

For a few days I am republishing some posts that have been particularly popular on YLF. Today, a five-year-old post that encourages you to think about your figure-flattering priorities. Feel great in outfits that aren’t conventionally flattering.   You can think of garment fit and outfit proportions as running along a continuum with conventionally flattering proportions on one end and so-called unflattering proportions on the other. The thing about trends is that they are often unconventional...
