Melt Cosmetics Fetish SexFoil Liquid Highlighter Review & Swatches

Fetish Melt Cosmetics Fetish SexFoil Liquid Highlighter ($39.00 for 1.01 oz.) is a light pink with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of lighter, cooler pink and gold sparkle throughout. It was one of the shades that had both finer pearl and more visible sparkle to it. The texture was more fluid, like a watery-gel, but it was thin and very spreadable, which was great for all-over application and working on the body. The formula dried ...

ColourPop On the Ritz & Scotch Kiss Fresh Kiss Lip Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

On the Ritz ColourPop On the Ritz Fresh Kiss Lip Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a brighter, pinky-plum with cool undertones and a glossy, cream finish.

Real astrology is about owning your stars, and not depending on them. This week we are looking back to the Lunar Eclipse of this past Friday, Nov 19. On that day you may have experienced something that... Read full article: Perfumed Horoscope: November 22 - November 28 from Fragrantica Perfumes and Co...

Sunday Firesides: Graduate From the Kindergarten Class of Gratitude

Is there anything more innocuous than gratitude? It’s one of the few values endorsed by solemn religious leaders and vapid lifestyle gurus alike. Unlike other virtues, which require going against instinct (e.g., you feel afraid, but decide to act with courage anyway), with gratitude, you simply lean into it; something good happens, you feel good, and you need only recognize that warm and fuzzy sensation. Gratitude is seemingly easy. Basic. Indeed, even parents who give their children little oth...

Contemporary Fougères For Winter: Three Under-The-Radar Picks

Convention dictates winter as the season for rich ambers, smoky-spicy woods, and sappy, indulgent resins, but fougères can take on a deeply satisfying and surprising sense of melancholy and poignance when worn in colder weather. Their bracing top notes and herbal zing chirp a lonelier, calmer tune, and their thick shaving cream bases lose drama and extroversion, instead appearing humbler and more...

Is smart tech the new domestic battle ground?

Now that Alexa, Siri and Google have moved in, it’s only a matter of time before some of us are left out in the cold, says Emma BeddingtonI came into the kitchen recently to find my husband cradling our electricity smart meter with the kind of tender attention more usually directed to a new-born, his phone clutched in his free hand. “You didn’t turn your office heater off last night,” he said. I didn’t like his tone.“I did! I went in this morning to turn it on again!” Continue reading...

Sheila Atim: ‘Six wings, chips and a drink. That’s my guilty pleasure’

The actor, 30, talks about learning tenacity, gaining an MBE, meeting Tom Hanks and her pole-dancing addictionIt’s fun to write MBE after your name occasionally. I got the honour in 2019 for services to drama. I have complex feelings about it and it hasn’t made any tangible difference to my career, but it solidified my sense of responsibility. I’m a big advocate for youth arts access and young people often ask me about the MBE, so it’s cool to show them what’s possible. It’s almost an ambassador...

Are the 2020s really like living back in the 1970s? I wish …

With queues for petrol, inflation and Abba on the radio, it’s easy to compare the two decades. But you wouldn’t if you were there, says Polly Toynbee, as she revisits the styles of her youthQueueing for petrol, I turn on the radio and there are Abba, singing their latest hit. Shortages on shop shelves are headline news, with warnings of a panic-buying Christmas. And national debt is sky high. But this isn’t the 1970s; it’s 2021. People who weren’t born then have been calling this a return to tha...

Eerie early-morning happenings.

I got up just before 3 a.m. and, brushing my teeth, I dipped back into my new audiobook, "Our Country Friends: A Novel," by Gary Shteyngart.He messed up the bed’s careful sheets as if two lovers had just enjoyed a tussle on it. He spotted two carved wooden statues of pineapples on the modernist desk... and knocked over one of them, adding some asymmetry to the deathly hospital order around him. What would his mother say from her immovable Gangnam cocoon, her throat tingling with hot barley tea? ...
