ColourPop At First Crush Cheek Quad Review & Swatches

At First Crush ColourPop At First Crush 4-Pan Cheek Palette ($18.00 for 0.3 oz.) is a medium-depth set of shades that includes a cream-to-powder highlighter, powder bronzer, and two powder blushes.

If the batteries are not completely charged, the fan may revolve more slowly or cease to function entirely. That is why it is critical to install the solar panel in an area where it will receive lots of sunlight. Those who live in locat...

If you use a knife that’s unsafe or you don’t know how to properly use it, you run the risk of seriously injuring yourself. Perhaps folks tend to rank effectiveness above safety because they don’t think the two features can coexist. But there are safe utility knives with the ability to cut a wide variety of materials. ...

Good Water Perfume Collection

The idea of alcohol-free fragrances has been around for a very long time. In Arab countries, the problem with religious prohibitions was solved with the help of an oil base, but in Europe, they decided to go the other way and create fragrances based on water.

A Tale of Writer’s Block

Antigay activist banned from Canada is absolutely losing it over how gay Netflix has become

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Peter LaBarbera. The antigay activist hasn’t made too many headlines since he was denied entry into Canada back in 2014 for being too much of a bigot. But LaBarbera, or “Porno Pete” as some people refer to him because of his strange obsession with talking about the graphic details of gay anal intercourse, is back! Basic, common sense truths: Men cannot be women. Women cannot be men. There is no such thing as a “pregnant man.” 2 dudes cannot truly be “ma...
