ColourPop Los Feliz & On Film Blotted Lip Reviews & Swatches

Los Feliz ColourPop Los Feliz Blotted Lip (2021) ($8.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark peach with warm, more orange-leaning undertones and a matte finish. It had sheer to semi-sheer color coverage, which did not build up beyond that. The texture was denser in the tube, but it glided comfortably across my lips as it had a velvety feel to it (though no “creaminess” as it felt and looked matte from the get-go). It didn’t catch on lip tex...

Rare Beauty Hope Soft Pinch Liquid Blush Review & Swatches

Hope Rare Beauty Hope Soft Pinch Liquid Blush ($20.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a natural, dewy sheen. It had rich color payoff in a single “layer,” though it was sheerer and more buildable–if desired–by using exactly as the brand recommended, which was one or two “dots” of product per cheek. It had a very fluid consistency that was lightweight, spreadable, and easy to work with over bare skin or...

This shade had much finer pearl throughout with no larger sparkles that were visible when I looked when I wore this (other shades in the formula had more pronounced sparkles, particularly once applied and sheered out). The consi...

The person who got me through 2021: Larry David helped me embrace life as a bald man

I have finally admitted that my hair has gone for ever, and taken great comfort from the reigning king of baldnessThis year will go down in history as the year I went bald. Well, actually, 2018 went down as the year I went bald. But still, 2021 will go down as the year that I stopped fastidiously brushing three long wisps of cobweb over my scalp in the berserk belief that it somehow made me look less bald. I am bald now. Hello.Obviously, being bald is rubbish. A bad roll of the genetic dice mean...

Glaminatrix Hopping, Martini, Peacock, Lost Woods, Tiffany, Pixie Foiled Eyeshadows

Hopping Glaminatrix Hopping Duochrome Eyeshadow ($8.77 for 0.06 oz.) is a light, chartreuse green with warmer, more golden undertones and green-gold shifting sparkle. It seemed like it was supposed to have an almost cooler, greenish base come through, but it read warmer green when I tried it. The consistency was soft, more loosely-pressed with a touch of fallout when applied with a dry brush. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentatio...

No, you can't legally get married in the metaverse — at least not yet

Facebook, now called Meta, has created a number of images to show how the metaverse might look in the future.Facebook Weddings conducted in video games aren't legal, and they're likely not legit in the metaverse either.

5 Times When You Can (And Even Should) Be Late

Punctuality is something like a virtue. It respects other people’s time, demonstrates reliability, and requires integrity and discipline. Given that it’s virtue-adjacent, it can seem like the more stringent the practice of punctuality, the better, and so you get maxims like: “Early is on time; on time is late.” However, there are situations when being late is entirely acceptable, and even desirable. There are even conditions where being late is actually more polite than being on time. We’ll ru...

How to Fold a Suit for Packing

If you’re traveling with a suit, your best bet in getting it to your destination without it becoming wrinkled is to use a garment bag. But that means bringing a garment bag in addition to the other bag or suitcase you’re schlepping. If you want to travel light and bring fewer bags, it is possible to fold a suit and put it in a suitcase or weekend bag without it getting too mussed up.   The above method creates a compact packet consisting of your suit jacket and trousers.

When My Conclusion Was Dead Wrong

As a research-based consultant, I’m used to getting my ideas tweaked by new research. After all, I think of myself as a fairly flexible, open guy, so a small adjustment to my theories and ideas is usually illuminating. But unknown to Harvard’s Rosabeth Kanter, she took a Shillelagh, a big club to one of my big ideas. Her blog, Why running a family doesn’t help you run a business, knocked me back on my heels. And I yelled a silent Aaargh!, knowing full well that she was quite correct and I was qu...

Should England have rocked up without a plan? Were they mentally exhausted before they even began?

We’re not lodging this as an official criticism. More just raising it as something to think about. How much does England’s insane obsession with tours Down Under drain the players before they’ve even arrived? It was Jos Buttler’s first innings dismissal in Adelaide that made us think of this (and some of his catching too). He got pressured into a suicide drive and yet it was only the 15th ball he’d faced. Now 15 balls is a pretty long time to be stuck on nought in an Ashes Test, but you’...
