ColourPop Harmony Palette Review & Swatches

Harmony ColourPop Harmony 5-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a new, warm-toned neutral color story that included three matte eyeshadows and two shimmer eyeshadows. There was a decent range of depth and finish across the five shades, so it should create a few different looks rather than just one or two. The quality was there; the eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, and longer-wearing, which was consistent with the ...

MAC Flawless is More & Pink Big Lustreglass Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Flawless is More ($22.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium, pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous finish with faint gold pearl. The texture was lightweight, lightly emollient but on the thinner side, so while it didn’t feel clingy, it also didn’t slide around too much during wear. It had medium, somewhat buildable pigmentation, which was as marketed, that lasted for four hours (which was far shorter than marketed) but felt l...

Podcast #761: How Testosterone Makes Men, Men

What creates the differences between the sexes? Many would point to culture, and my guest today would agree that culture certainly shapes us. But she’d also argue that at the core of the divergence of the sexes, and in particular, of how men think and behave, is one powerful hormone: testosterone. Her name is Dr. Carole Hooven, and she’s a Harvard biologist and the author of T: The Story of Testosterone, the Hormone That Dominates and Divides Us. Today on the show, Carole explains the argumen...

What do you like about sparkly products? What don't you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Sparkly Products I’ve found that slightly flatter sparkle particles tend to adhere better to skin, whether in eyeshadow or cheek form, and I love the effect of sparkle in general, so when it’s flatter and with a more emollient/thicker base product, it can be beautiful. I’m not a fan of too much fallout during wear, though, as it can be irritating! I’m not as fussed about light migration from a cheek product, though. — Christine ...

ILNP Drive-In, Tidal Wave, Pool Party Nail Polishes Reviews & Swatches

Drive-In ILNP Drive-In Holographic Jelly Nail Polish ($10.00 for 0.4 oz.) has a darker, cool lavender jelly base with green-purple-pink shifting flakes and finer, holographic pearl in the background.

Per the brand, it has its maximum coverage in two to three coats. In the ...

Playing Dolls With Avon

Today, the hero of our vintage column will be a mini-bottle, which came without any label. By eye, its approximate volume is about a quarter to a third of an ounce (7-10 ml). It looks like a figurine of a lady dressed in an old style. Its glass flacon depicts a big three-level bell skirt, and a beige plastic stopper depicts the head of a lady in a high poke bonnet, with a torso in a short folded...

Terra Moons Holiday 2021 Eyeshadow Swatches (x8)

Terra Moons released eight new eyeshadows just in time for the holiday season. There are five new multichromes, one duochrome, and two “matte” eyeshadows (they have fine shimmer, not so much sparkle, though, throughout), which was a total of eight new shades to test out and swatch. Based on initial swatching, the eyeshadows seemed to be consistent with Terra Moons’ formulas, but I don’t anticipate having reviews until early 2022–so here are some swatches for now! (Som...

Judi Dench vs. Barbra Streisand : A Stark Contrast

With Stephen Sondheim’s passing, there is a lot of reminiscing and a lot of his great work being newly performed on the web. Sondheim changed our whole idea of the “musical,” especially represented by “Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street,” a horror story if there ever was one. So, although Sondheim is dated for the youngest generation, his music is timeless. And very instructive.   One of the greatest opportunities to compare disciplines comes in two very distinct performances of “Sen...

Fifth Ashes Test + 14-day quarantine requirements could have equalled one of the all-time great England team selections

The fifth Ashes Test is a very important thing, even when – in fact, especially when it’s a dead rubber. We hereby retract our knee jerk suggestion that they simply abandon the match in light of the two teams’ decision not to travel to Perth because of Western Australia’s 14-day quarantine requirements. That was our initial feeling upon learning that they were going to move the Perth Test: Why bother? Just bin it. It’s not like anything will be at stake by that point and no-one plays fifth ...

My sister was the right age, but our right-on 80s household was a princess-free zone (though The Little Mermaid is arguably one of the more subversive films in the canon, with its exploration of identity and conformity and nods to drag culture).
