Dior Pink Rose & Sparkling Peony Rouge Dior Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Pink Rose (466) Dior Pink Rose (466) Rouge Dior Lip Color (2021) ($40.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, pink-leaning coral with a frosted finish. It had a lightweight, moderately emollient consistency that was thin without being clingy, so it applied fluidly across my lips but didn’t slide around while worn. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that went on evenly, though a touch of product settled into my deeper lip lines–not enou...

Huda Beauty Caring Coral GloWish Blush Powder Review & Swatches

Caring Coral (02) Huda Beauty Caring Coral (02) GloWish Cheeky Vegan Blush Powder ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark pink with moderate, warm undertones and a soft, satin sheen. It seemed to have less of a glow in its finish, even when blended out and diffused along the edges, compared to other shades in the range but was definitely more than matte. It had nearly opaque color payoff in one layer, so I had to use a lighte...

ColourPop Parallel Super Shock Cheek Review & Swatches

Parallel ColourPop Parallel Super Shock Cheek (Highlighter) ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a brighter, medium pink base that was slightly more neutral-to-cool in undertone, while it had contrasting, golden pearl throughout that gave it a luminous sheen. It had more opaque pigmentation when applied with a fingertip and sheerer, more buildable coverage when applied with a synthetic brush, as marketed. I liked applying the formula with a finge...

Sunday Firesides: As I Am Now

It’s something of a cliche to observe that Westerners typically avoid thinking about death, and live their lives less meaningfully, and urgently, as a result. Less commonly explained are the subtle ways this avoidance takes place, beyond simply averting one’s eyes while driving past a funeral home. Our denial of death can be seen in our addiction to the news cycle. We stay hooked from the fear of missing out on something important . . . none so much as the breaking story that science has finall...

"The Turkish government said this week that it has opened deportation proceedings against at least seven Syrian nationals accused of eating bananas in a 'provocative' way while participating in a TikTok video challenge..."

"... in a move that underscores rising hostility toward Syrians in a country with a reputation for being welcoming to refugees. The challenge was inspired by an Oct. 17 encounter on the streets of Istanbul that was captured on video, during which a man complained that he could not afford bananas, a staple that has fallen out of the reach of many consumers amid a poor economy. Turning to a female Syrian student, he alleged that refugees from Syria were buying the fruit by the 'kilos,' a reference...

"Dark academia is a broader subculture... think Gothic architecture, candlelit libraries, and dark film photos placed next to handwritten poetry on a vintage table."

"The dark academia fashion trend pulls directly from this aesthetic, both of which reference everything from Harry Potter to Hellenistic period art, explains stylist Rebecca Dennett. Dennett describes the trend as both 'deeply gothic and preppy,' with an emphasis on duller and darker color palettes. Stylist Sarah Slutsky agrees, adding that the style can be described as a 'marriage of prep school uniforms, androgyny and also traditional professionalism skewed romantic.' TikTok influencer and c...

Juliet Stevenson: ‘The perception of women of my age is so reductive’

The actor, 65, on growing up in a loving family, recognising her partner, and getting more interesting while the parts she is offered get less interestingMy earliest memory is jumping off a little stone wall in the garden in Australia. I called it my jumping wall. It felt at least 30ft high and enormously brave. It was probably lower than knee height. It’s my first memory of an adrenaline rush. My dad was in the army and we were posted all around the world. I went to Australia on a boat with my ...

Stella Creasy on her lonely maternity cover battle: ‘Women should be able to have kids and do politics’

The Labour politician is used to fighting battles – but can she win her latest: convincing her colleagues to back proper maternity cover for fellow members?Stella Creasy is dodging people on the pavement as we talk. She apologises for the background noise but it’s hard finding time for a conversation when you have a newborn son, a toddler daughter, and no proper maternity leave from a full-time job as Labour MP for Walthamstow; this walk to an appointment is the only window she has. Last month, ...
