Glaminatrix Foiled Eyeshadow Swatches (x58)

Glaminatrix is an indie brand based in Australia, which caught my eye after seeing some folks I follow, along with readers, mention them. They had a “buy everything” kind of eyeshadow bundle, which was 50% the reason I was like, “Guess that’s me!” and purchased all of their single eyeshadows in one click. My order did take a little longer than their stated turnaround time to fill, so they included some additional eyeshadows, which brings the total eyeshadows I receive...

Does “Pay Attention and Listen Harder” Really Work?

Listening is one of those behaviors that most people take for granted. Until, that is, they miss something very important that impacts their job, career or significant other. So, when interviewing colleagues for a development client, I inevitably ask about my client's listening skills. There are important reasons for this. As a specialist in communication and rhetorical behavior, I’m well aware that the two most basic skills, skills upon which all interactional competencies are built, are li...

ColourPop My Two Cents Blush & Lite Stix Duo Review & Swatches

My Two Cents ColourPop My Two Cents Blush & Lite Stix Duo ($14.00 for 0.61 oz.) includes a peachy-gold cream highlighter complemented by a peachy-brown cream blush, both in twist-up stick form. I’m a fan of this formula, so it’s nice to see some additions, and I think the two shades work together to create a cohesive cheek look. Both shades performed consistently with the formula; buildable coverage, easy to apply, and long-wearing. ...

Charlotte Tilbury Everlasting Blossom, Berry Lucky, Cherry Dream Limitless Lucky Lips Reviews & Swatches

Everlasting Blossom Charlotte Tilbury Everlasting Blossom Limitless Lucky Lips ($34.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a darker, dusty pink with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and thin with a more velvety glide than a traditional creaminess to it, but it wasn’t prone to pilling on me and was fairly forgiving of lip texture. It had opaque color coverage that stayed on well for five hours and felt ne...

The Summer of C

After what has been a long year and a half — for so many of us — this was the summer I thought I’d be reading a lot of books and relaxing at the beach. Maybe even reading some of those books while listening to the sound of the sea in Amalfi. (Maybe more than maybe.) Instead, it was the summer I discovered I had a malignant breast tumor. I never expected to get, or rather, to discover I had cancer this summer. No one, of course, ever does. It is remarkable how something so small can change so...

‘I just want to go back to normality’: how repeated lockdowns changed our hair habits

In 2020, stay-at-home orders prompted colourful experimentation – but this year, it was sales of dye stripper that spiked during Australia’s lockdownsIn the middle of Melbourne’s sixth lockdown, I decided I needed to do something about my hair.With the chances of restrictions easing looking less and less likely, I caved and ordered a tube of toner that my hairdresser promised would stop my blonde highlights turning Simpsons-yellow. As I clumsily slathered the cream on to my split ends, I noticed...

Learn a Bit More About Coffee From a Brazilian Perspective

The Brazilian people have coffee so deeply ingrained in their culture that when referring to morning meals or afternoon snacks, we use the word coffee (Café da manhã) when we mean the whole breakfast (bread, eggs, biscuits, cake, spreads, and jams) or the whole afternoon snack (Café da Tarde.) It's similar to how the British talk about their afternoon tea.  Our history with coffee is very o...

Matthew Hayden’s extra words

One of the defining qualities of Matthew Hayden’s guff-talking is his habit of throwing in a load of additional words that add precisely nothing to what he is trying to say. We’re going to talk to you about three recent examples. Last time around – back when Hayden first took on his coaching job with Pakistan – we highlighted another of the former Aussie opener’s verbal crimes – a tendency to start one sentence and confuse himself before ending a completely different sentence. There was ...

My mum the nun: why my socialite mother joined a monastery aged 61

Vivacious, wealthy and charismatic, my mother threw an extravagant party for her 61st birthday. She then left her friends and 10 children and spent the rest of her life as a cloistered nunIt was like a beehive. A buzzing mass of 800 guests gathered around the queen, their larder of honey replaced by shrimp croquettes and caviar. It was 32 years ago when my mother, Ann Russell Miller, threw a combination 61st birthday and bon voyage party in the grand ballroom of a San Francisco hotel. Above her ...

Why the witch-hunt victims of early modern Britain have come back to haunt us

The women killed as witches centuries ago are starting to receive justice. But let’s not glamorise the murder of innocentsLilias Addie’s body was piled into a wooden box and buried beneath a half-tonne sandstone slab on the foreshore where a dark North Sea laps the Fife coast. More than a hundred years later, she was exhumed by opportunistic Victorian gravediggers and her bones – unusually large for a woman living in the early 18th century – were later put on show at the Empire exhibition in Gla...

I’ve never thought about being a dad. Until now…

Michael Segalov always presumed fatherhood was not for him. Then his beloved grandmother died and he found himself thinking about having kids. But that meant learning about new and radical approaches to being a parentIt wasn’t the first time my nephew had called my mum “Grandma”. This was, if anything, a staple of the fairly limited vocabulary this three-year-old possessed. Mum, my sister and I had been strewn out on the grass, exhausted. Unperturbed, he announced he wanted escorting to the swin...
