Trio of Terror ColourPop Trio of Terror Jelly Much Shadow Trio ($28.00 for 0.51 oz.) is a new, limited edition trio of cream eyeshadows. They are also available individually for $10 each.

Huda Beauty Medium GloWish Bronzer Review & Swatches

Medium Huda Beauty Medium GloWish Soft Radiance Bronzing Powder ($31.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium brown with warmer, more orange-leaning undertones and a “natural” matte finish. It wasn’t flat and wasn’t overtly shimmery, which made it very flattering on bare skin or on top of foundation without mattifying too heavily. The texture was smooth to the touch, finely-milled without being powdery, but it wasn’t too firmly-pressed that it be...

This sounds like the message he ran on, but not much like what his Party has been up to lately.

My plans are not about left versus right — or moderate versus progressive — or anything else that pits Americans against one another. They are about competitiveness, expanding opportunity, and leading the world.— President Biden (@POTUS) October 30, 2021 It seems to me that Biden got elected by offering to be not much more than the absence of Trump, but his Party seems to behave as if the people elected Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren (and won both houses of Congress with a comfortable mar...
