YSL Beige Instinct & Orange Surge Velvet Radical Matte Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Beige Instinct (304) YSL Beige Instinct (304) The Slim Velvet Radical Matte Lipstick ($39.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a dusty, medium coral with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. The texture was smooth, velvety, and denser without being too firm, so the lipstick still applied in a single stroke without tugging. It had opaque color payoff in one layer, which applied evenly to my lips and didn’t settle noticeably (in person) in my l...

Malin+Goetz Strawberry: Frolicking in Fruit Fields on a Windy Day

Trump hotels issue mask mandates, probably won’t impact business since nobody wants to stay there anyway

If you were thinking about staying at one of Donald Trump‘s hotels in Miami, Chicago, Las Vegas, or Waikiki, be sure to bring a mask because they’ve all just announced mandatory mask mandates. All four hotels quietly put out statements this week about their updated mask policies, despite the fact that the guy the hotels are named after made anti-masking behavior a cornerstone of his failed 2020 presidential campaign. Mask mandates are not allowed in Florida schools, but masks are mandated at...

OnlyFans bans explicit content

OnlyFans has announced that it will ban sexually explicit content starting in October. The platform was not built specifically for porn but that has grown to be its most popular and visible use case, but pressure from “banking partners and payout providers” means the company will have to leave the adult content world behind and focus solely on SFW material going forward. The news, first reported by Bloomberg, was confirmed by the company in a statement: Effective 1 October, 2021, OnlyFans will p...

Is the Necktie Obsolete?

Men’s magazine writers and cultural observers have been predicting the demise of the necktie for nearly a century now. Way back in 1921, the Associated Press reported: “Neckties Doomed.” Flip through archival issues of Esquire , and you’ll find at least one article in each decade of the 20th century prophesying the death of this sartorial accessory.  But these obituaries were premature; the necktie kept on beating the odds. In fact, sales of ties increased in the late 2000s and early ‘1...

Gay gasp! Is Superman about to come out of the closet?

Jon Kent/Superboy We would never want to out someone before they’re ready, but this is the exception. It appears the iconic DC Comics character Superman is about to come out of the closet. ComicBook.News reports that former DC Comics artist Ethan Van Sciver has said publicly that Superman will come out of the closet in an upcoming storyline. To be clear, this is not the classic incarnation with the secret identity of Clark Kent. Rather, this is Jon Kent, the half-human/half-Kryptonian son of ...

Gay waiter who received homophobic message in place of tip receives over $4,500 in donations

Hundreds of people pitched in to surprise a server from Wisconsin with a $4,500 tip after they received a homophobic note from a nasty customer. On Monday, Eric Salzwedel started the #VenmoChallenge after he said his friend, who works as a server at a restaurant in downtown Madison, was stiffed by a homophobic customer. A receipt showed that on the $142 bill, rather than leave a tip, the customer wrote, “Service was good but we don’t tip sinful homosexuals.” AdBridg.cmd.push(function() { AdBr...

Watergate Salad: A Brief Introduction to the Midwestern Classic

How to Spot Someone on the Bench Press

The bench press can kill you. It’s the one lift where the barbell is directly above your throat and the vital organs in your upper body, and there’s pretty much no way to bail out if you fail the lift.  Because the bench press can potentially kill you, you want to take extra precautions to ensure your safety during the lift. One of those precautions is using a spotter.  The problem with using a spotter on the bench press is that pretty much everyone does it wrong. Amateur and well-meaning spott...
