ColourPop Lucky Penny Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Lucky Penny ColourPop Lucky Penny 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($14.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a new, very warm-toned set of neutrals that included four shimmery eyeshadows and five matte eyeshadows. All nine shades were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing, and it was actually one of the more consistent and better-performing palettes from the brand in the last year.

ColourPop x NBA Chicago Bulls Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Chicago Bulls ColourPop Chicago Bulls 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($14.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a new, limited edition red-leaning color story that included four shimmery eyeshadows and five more matte eyeshadows. A few of the shimmers were more challenging to work with as they had some fallout, were drier or more powdery, and often performed best with a dampened brush, but the mattes were pretty lovely to work with–pigmented, blendable, ...

ColourPop Penny Pincher, Tried and True, On a Roll Lux Liquid Lip Reviews & Swatches

Penny Pincher ColourPop Penny Pincher Lux Liquid Lip ($8.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a light-medium pinky-coral with warm undertones and a satin finish. It appeared lighter applied than initially swatched. The texture was thin, very fluid, which made it spreadable across my lips, but there was a bit of product that settled into my deeper lip lines. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that wore well for four hours on me and felt neither...

Tower of Silence: The Vanishing Practice of Zoroastrian Sky Burial

On a high hill in the city I grew up in, there’s a tall tower we call the Dakhma, “Tower of Silence,” veiled by tall trees and situated in the middle of a forest inhabited by peacocks. In this serene setting, the Parsi Zoroastrians of Mumbai, India, continue to practice a funerary tradition that remains almost entirely unchanged after thousands of years. Ask any Parsi about what has changed, and they’ll point to the sky—reminding you that there were once rings of vultures once eagerly circling t...

I used to be a compulsive liar. Should I reach out to someone I hurt or leave it in the past? | Leading questions

Try not to apologise just to soothe the shame and fear, writes advice columnist Eleanor Gordon-Smith – sometimes you have to have the dignity to be dislikedI was, I think, a compulsive liar in my late teens and early 20s. I had, in some ways, a pretty awful adolescence. I was fortunate to meet a young man who was kind, attentive and exactly who I needed at that time. He loved me dearly and I abused that. I lied to him with claims at which, looking back, I’m truly disgusted. I was racked with gui...

In 1972, the number of Americans who described themselves as religiously unaffiliated was 5%. In 2018, it was almost 24%. Why has the number of people answering “none of the above” to the question of their religious affiliation jumped so dramatically in recent years, and what effect will the growth of these so-called “nones” have on society in general?

Huda Beauty Healthy Peach GloWish Blush Powder Review & Swatches

Healthy Peach (01) Huda Beauty Healthy Peach (01) GloWish Cheeky Vegan Blush Powder ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a medium peach with moderate, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish.
