ColourPop Duet Palette Review & Swatches

Duet ColourPop Duet 5-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a new, warm-toned neutral palette that leaned copper. It contained three “matte” eyeshadows (two had definite sparkles on top) and two shimmers. The formula was consistent with these types of finishes from the brand, but there was definitely fallout to contend with during application. This palette is one of five in a holiday vault, though ColourPop said they wou...

Give Me Glow Matte Shadows Reviews & Swatches (Round 2, Part 4 of 5)

Cream Please Give Me Glow Cream Please Matte Pressed Shadow ($7.00 for 0.105 oz.) is a soft, warm white with a matte finish. The texture was somewhat powdery but maintained a lot of its full coverage when patted and pressed onto the skin, though there was light fallout if I was not careful. It wore decently for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.FURTHER READING: Formula Overview for details on ge...

JD Glow Firestorm & Magic Multichrome Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Firestorm JD Glow Firestorm Pressed Multichrome ($15.00 for 0.095 oz.) is a white-based multichrome that shifted from bright pink to peachy orange to yellowy gold paired with a metallic sheen. It had a soft, more loosely-pressed texture with moderate glide, which helped it remain denser and less powdery than it could have been. I felt like it applied best with a fingertip for a smoother, more even application of color. It had mostly ...

Gucci Peggy Taupe & Call It a Day Brilliant Glow Care Lipsticks Review & Swatches

Peggy Taupe (204) Gucci Beauty Peggy Taupe (204) Brilliant Glow Care Lipstick ($42.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium brown with subtle, warm rosy undertones and a glossy finish. It had sheer to semi-sheer color payoff that adhered evenly across my lips and didn’t catch on imperfections, which was a nice surprise–these sheerer, more emollient balm-like formulas often do. The texture felt lightweight, smooth, and comfortable to wear with mo...

Top 5 Qualities Of The Best Toddler Footwear

How Well Can You Move in Medieval Armor?: Medievalist Daniel Jaquet Gives It a Try in Real Life

If you’ve ever run a marathon in costume, or for that matter, boarded public transportation with a large musical instrument or a bulky bag of athletic equipment, you know that gear can be a burden best shed. But what if that gear is your first, nay, best line of defense against a fellow knight fixing to smite you in the name of their liege? Such gear is non-optional. Curious about the degree to which 15th-century knights were encumbered by their protective plating, medievalist Daniel...

We’re more than happy to stump up for BT Sport for a month or two but maybe the BBC highlights will work just fine for you

We’ve often bemoaned the inflexible, out-of-date way broadcasters sell sport to consumers, but things have definitely improved in recent years. Obviously the ideal is that any given Test series is broadcast on a channel you already have. Failing that, all we ask is that there’s a way to see the action that doesn’t involve paying for a whole bunch of other stuff we do not actually want. This seems like a small and obvious thing. When you go to the pub and buy a pint, they don’t generally...

George Bailey’s Life of Quiet, Seething, Unnecessary Desperation

It’s a Wonderful Life is arguably the most classic of classic Christmas movies. What’s not to like? It’s got the talented directing of Frank Capra, the endearing acting of Jimmy Stewart, a compelling plot device that invites viewers to imagine what the world would be like without them, and plenty of feel-good sentiment. Or, at least, there’s plenty of feel-good sentiment at the end. The other parts of the movie though . . . well I’d long noticed that the bulk of the film actually made me feel r...

An 'antiwork' management strategy is going viral for describing perks like optional Mondays and 10% pay raises, and claiming there was 'no decline in revenue'

SOPA Images / Contributor/Getty Images An "antiwork" Reddit post from a user claiming to be a senior manager at a small firm went viral. The author says they proposed 10% pay raises and optional Mondays for a staff of almost 30 workers. They said revenues had "skyrocketed" during the pandemic, and that the changes did not lead to declines. When a business owner was looking for ideas to reward his team of about 30 workers for booming sales during Covid, he reportedly assumed the answer would b...

Ist „Rausziehen“ eine sichere Verhütungsmethode?

Die „Rauszieh-Methode“ oder Koitus interruptus ist die Art von Empfängnisverhütung, vor der dich deine Sexualkunde-Lehrer:innen damals in der Schule vermutlich gewarnt haben. In der Theorie klingt sie ziemlich simpel: Die Partner:innen achten beim Sex darauf, dass jeder kleine Tropfen Sperma außerhalb der Vagina bzw. Vulva bleibt. Die Praxis ist allerdings komplizierter, und verglichen mit anderen Verhütungsmethoden eher schwierig – und eindeutig keine sichere Taktik, um eine Schwangerschaf...

Stephen Fry Explains How to Deal with Bullying

Stephen Fry got sent off to a faraway boarding school at the age of seven. His subsequent years of student life far from home taught him, among other things, a set of effective strategies to deflect bullying. (“I suppose it all began when I came out of the womb,” he once said when asked at what point he acknowledged his sexuality, and that must have given him plenty of time to consider what it was to stand outside the mainstream.) The particular line he recommends delivering in the Q&A c...

"The priciest Advent calendar on the market is probably the new $150,000 Tiffany version, a four-foot-tall cabinet with a reproduction of the Jean-Michel Basquiat painting... on the front and 24 gifts inside."

" So why has the Chanel version gotten people so het up?... ... Chanel does lay out all the contents of the calendar on its website, so it’s not a secret what anybody is getting for their money. It’s not apparent that their offering is any more flimflam than that of other brands. But because it was new, and because it cost so much [$825], and because it was Chanel, with all the mythology built into the name, the stakes and expectations may have been higher. And the sense of betrayal when those ...

Milk Makeup Infinity Bionic Blush Review & Swatches

Infinity Milk Makeup Infinity Bionic Liquid Blush ($20.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a medium-dark coral with moderate, slightly more pink-leaning, warm undertones and a matte finish. It took a full two minutes for the formula to actually dry down in practice, but it really did get to a pretty matte finish eventually. The texture seemed so fluid and gel-like that it never occurred to me that it was going to dry down fully when I initially swatc...

Diese 4 Haarschnitt-Trends erwarten dich diesen Winter

Neulich überzeugte mich mein Hairstylist Tommy Buckett von den Vorzügen eines Winter-Cuts. Ich wollte weder einen Kurzhaarschnitt noch eine neue Farbe. Nachdem er gemeint hatte, dass ein frischer Schnitt mein Haar nur noch glamouröser aussehen lassen würde, lehnte ich mich zurück und sah dem Meister bei der Arbeit zu. Als Friseur ist er natürlich voreingenommen. Als ich mich dann aber mit ein paar Zentimetern weniger Haar selbst im Spiegel sah, fand ich, dass ich besser und gepflegter aussah als...

Warum sind Männer in Weihnachtsfilmen so toxisch?

Romantische Weihnachtskomödien fallen meist in die Kategorie „So schlecht, dass es schon wieder gut ist“. Simple Plots und kitschige Szenen sorgen für lockere Unterhaltung, vor allem rund um Weihnachten, wenn du vielleicht ohnehin schon etwas sentimentaler gestimmt bist. Als ich mir aber letztens einige meiner alten Favoriten wie Tatsächlich… Liebe und Liebe braucht keine Ferien und auch ein paar neue Versionen des Genres angeschaut habe – zum Beispiel Netflix’ neues Original Love Hard –, wurde ...
