ColourPop Heavy Petal, Dancing Lady, Orchis Lippie Stix Reviews & Swatches

Heavy Petal ColourPop Heavy Petal Lippie Stix ($7.00 for 0.0352 oz.) is a deep plum with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, moderately dense texture that was lightly tacky on my lips (but not heavy or uncomfortable to wear).

ColourPop Just My Pluck Pressed Powder Blush Review & Swatches

Just My Pluck ColourPop Just My Pluck Pressed Powder Blush ($8.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a darker, rosy mauve with cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture felt smooth and silky to the touch, but there was a dryness present that made my skin look a little drier than it was once I applied and blended out the product.

Elijah Wood: ‘I still have a pair of Hobbit feet in my house’

The 40-year-old actor on living with Frodo, coping with fans and why he loves fatherhoodI grew up in a blue-collar, working-class family in Cedar Rapids in Iowa.

‘Sun-powered orgasms are fantastic’: why I went to live in a desert cave

Armed with only a solar charger, a vibrator and some marijuana gummy bears, I rode out the pandemic – and my fear of spiders – in a California commune When Jesus was in the desert for 40 days, the devil tried to lure him off track by tempting him to turn stones into bread. This seems a bit tame on the devil’s part. Lying around in my cave in the Mojave desert, California, at three in the afternoon in 38C (100F) heat, my food fantasies revolve around fish and chips and roasted meat.Other afternoo...
