Urban Decay June Gloom & DTLA Vice Hydrating Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

June Gloom Urban Decay June Gloom Vice Hydrating LipstickUrban Decay June Gloom Vice Hydrating Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium, pinky-peach with moderate, warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied somewhat evenly but was very prone to settling into every single lip line possible, which made it less flattering to have. The texture was very creamy, smooth, and had a lot of slip,...

Both of us emptied our mind of all the insanity that the day was likely going to bring and just for that moment in time we concentrated on breathing. Nothing else, nothing more. There is something terribly simple yet amazingly important about just concentrating on your breathing. Closing ...

Jerry Falwell Jr. tries to have “certain pictures” excluded from evidence in upcoming trial

The fallout from the Jerry Falwell pool boy sex scandal continues. A judge has upheld most of a multi-million dollar lawsuit filed against the disgraced evangelical leader by his former employer, Liberty University, in the aftermath of last summer’s scandal. Last Friday, Lynchburg Circuit Judge Fred Watson denied Falwell’s attorneys motions to have the case dismissed, which means it’s one step closer to going to trail, where things will no doubt get very, very ugly.
