Sydney Grace Shooting Star, Beach Bum, Peach Cobbler, Last Quest Loose Pigments Reviews & Swatches

Shooting Star Sydney Grace Shooting Star Loose Pigment ($6.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a very light, peachy beige with moderate, warm undertones and a soft, metallic sheen. It felt smooth and finely-milled to the touch, but there was enough binder in the formula to keep the powder weighed down in the pot and helped it adhere evenly to bare skin, even dry. It had rich color coverage that lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading vis...

MAC Thanks It's MAC & Can't Dull My Shine Lustreglass Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

It had medium pigmentation that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage. The texture was lightweight, smooth, and lightly emollient with good glide, though it seemed more prone to settling into my lip lines, which wasn’t initially noticeable (except in the close-up photo) but was more noti...

Sunday Firesides: Become an Evangelist . . . for Faith in Humanity

Maybe you’re the religious type. Maybe you’re not.  Either way, you should consider accepting a special commission: becoming an evangelist . . . for faith in humanity.  It is a faith preached not with words, but with deeds. Every time as a restaurant customer you don’t respond to a delay in getting your food by yelling at your server, but by saying, “Hey, no worries, I can see you’re short-staffed.” Every time as a restaurant manager you preemptively say, “I’m sorry about this wait; I’ve...

Miss Dior Eau de Parfum: bright, jolly and sociable

The recent announcement of another reinvention of Miss Dior Eau de Parfum in a minimally different design has provoked a storm of emotions, mostly negative. I understand those who object. I don't get the genius behind some perfume houses maximally confusing customers by releasing a new fragrance under the same name. In this case, I'd rather see all these versions as extreme, intense, or blooming... Read full article: Miss Dior Eau de Parfum: bright, jolly and sociable from Fragrantica Perfume...

What do you look for in a foundation review?

I want to know someone has worn it multiple times on different occasions; I’ve found that week-to-week, a foundation might look great one week and less-great another week just based on how my skin is on a given day. I also like to see how it pairs with other products one uses–like were there... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

"After being cited for a rip in her jeans on the first day of school, Sophia Trevino has led a protest seeking changes to the district’s dress code, which she says unfairly targets girls."

  Lined up with other students as they came into the school, Sophia was asked to put her hands down by her thighs to measure if the rip in her jeans was lower than her fingertips. It was not. She and 15 other girls were written up before first period. Every Friday since then, Sophia and other students at Simpson Middle School, about 25 miles north of Atlanta, have worn T-shirts that denounce dress codes as “sexist,” “racist” and “classist.” ... “Dress codes are definitely sexist,” [said Sabrina...
