MAC Pout of Control & Good for My Ego Lustreglass Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Pout of Control MAC Pout of Control Lustreglass Sheer-Shine Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a brighter, medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a natural sheen. It had medium pigmentation that applied evenly to my lips but was more prone to settling into my lip lines, which became more noticeable in person after two hours of wear. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and thin with light slip but enough to glide on fluidly....

Experts say Apple is 'on very dangerous grounds' for blocking employees from talking about wages on Slack while allowing topics like dogs and foosball

Apple CEO Tim Cook. Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images Apple shut down a Slack channel that employees created to talk about their pay at the company. It did so despite allowing channels like #fun-dogs slip past its rule against non-work-related topics. Experts say Apple "shot itself in the foot" if it enforced its policy inconsistently.

Lordos Shiseido: How to Smell Like Monsieur in Japan?

The Japanese fragrance Lordos Shiseido intrigued me with its English-sounding name, its time of release, and its low under-the-radar popularity. Even among all Shiseido fragrances, many of which were released only for the Japanese domestic market (see our interview with Tomoo Inaba, Japanese perfume enthusiast and perfumer), it is not very common. I wanted to try it first - it's no secret that ... Read full article: Lordos Shiseido: How to Smell Like Monsieur in Japan? from Fragrantica Perfumes...

Here’s What Annabel Lee from Poe’s Legendary Poem Smells Like

I was discussing bringing out some of my older Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Fragrances for Fall 2021 and I realized a bottle of Annabel Lee that I had stashed away is quite rare. Who knew? Annabel Lee was introduced with A Demon in my View Collection that ran for several months on the Lab’s website back in 2005. The collection was a tribute to the late, great Edgar Allan Poe and obviously, no collection would be complete without a fragrance called Annabel Lee right? Someone is selling a bottle ...

Podcast #737: College — What It Was, Is, and Should Be

Modern students are apt to see going to  college  as the way to earn a credential that will help them get a good job. But as Andrew Delbanco, Professor of American Studies at Columbia University, argues in his book  College : What It Was, Is, and Should Be, higher education was developed for a different purpose — one it should fight to maintain.    Today on the show, Andrew shares how he decided to write his book to understand more about the history, nature, and value of an institution w...

3 Frisuren-Trends für den späten Sommer & frühen Herbst

Manchmal glaubst du, einen neuen Haarschnitt zu brauchen – dabei würde eine neue Frisur schon reichen. Pony? Bob? Oder gleich ein Pixie-Cut? Muss gar nicht sein; du wünschst dir einfach nur, dass dein Haar mal anders aussieht, oder zumindest interessanter als jetzt gerade. Bevor du also deinen nächsten Friseurtermin buchst, lohnt sich der Griff in die Kiste mit deinen Haarreifen, Scrunchies, Clips und Klammern. Deiner Kreativität sind dabei keine Grenzen gesetzt – in diesem Spätsommer und Frühhe...

What do you look for in a skincare review?

I personally don’t get a lot of value out of most skincare reviews… I think it’s because it is really hard to test real efficacy and it can really just depend on one’s skin/concerns. I’ll look for things like what the scent is like or if a lot of people didn’t like it. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

How far will England’s Plan A actually carry them?

The flipside of everything going pretty much exactly to plan is that this is a thing that almost never happens. The best laid schemes are forever ganging agley and so what are you going to do when you’re back in the real world where absolutely everything goes wrong absolutely all of the time? How are you going to adapt to and succeed in the face of normality? England’s Plan A hangs off two pegs of markedly contrasting likeliness.

Knot a Long Dress to Add Structure

Sometimes, when you’re wearing a long Summer knitted T-shirt dress or a woven one in a similar silhouette, it’s oh-so-comfy, breezy and easy, but can feel a bit shapeless. If it’s A-line or has side slits, you can tie a knot in one of the front corners. This creates an interesting asymmetrical hemline with a magical diagonal line. It shortens and tapers the hemline a little, and adds an interesting touch. These small visual changes add effective structure to the silhouette. Here the same dress ...
