Jill Stuart Beauty has been available on their website for a whole as well as the Soho Flagship store but for years it was exclusively available within Japan and was a hassle to get.

Misogyny at Microsoft, Farscape, and the New Airpods: Best Gizmodo Stories of the Week

It’s April 2019—and perhaps the month that will later be known as the dawn of the Age of Fungus. A concerning report in the New York Times this weekend detailed how multiple strains of Candida auris, a drug-resistant species of pathogenic fungus, have quietly spread across the globe.

Milk Makeup Watermelon Brightening Face Mask Really Does Give Me That Just Washed Face Glow

I finally got around to trying Milk Watermelon Brightening Face Mask ($24) and I’m trying to decide if the just washed face glow it gives me is real or just a placebo. I’ve become addicted to this little face mask stick and I use it three (sometimes four) times a week! I’ve already run through nearly two sticks and I’m about to purchase a third but I still can’t figure out if it’s actually doing anything or if I’m imagining it!? You ever do that with skincare or makeup? You literally trick your...

Gloriously impractical "pressure gauge" watch

For many years, we've celebrated Tokyoflash's glorious and impractical contributions to horology: the company has set itself on a long path to imagine what a watch can be in an era where we all have unbelievably precise, self-setting timepieces in our pockets at all times, playfully experimenting with what a watchface can do while still telling the time (nominally, at least!). I love their latest watch: the $189 PSI Pressure Gauge Watch features a medium-large-sized bezel with lovely curves...

Review: Vintage vibrators

Masturbating like it’s 1925 with the Polar Cub Electric Vibrator, Oster Massagett, and Vanguard Vibro-Massager The inventor of the first electrical vibrator, doctor Joseph Mortimer Granville, called his device “Granville’s Hammer” — and if that’s not obviously named by a man I don’t know what is. It was for male pain relief; he expressly didn’t want women to use it. “I have avoided, and shall continue to avoid the treatment of women by percussion,” he wrote in 1883, “simply because I ...

Jill Stuart Strawberry Whipped Rouge Review & Swatches

Jill Stuart Strawberry Whipped Rouge ($30) is a new, limited edition whipped mousse-like creamy lipstick that launched with the Jill Stuart Strawberry Valentine’s Day Collection a few weeks ago in Japan. You might recall this launch when I spoke briefly about it in Sweety Strawberry Hand Cream Review which is also one of the pieces that released with this collection! I did find myself wishing they did a a strawberry chocolate themed eyeshadow palette like Clinique’s Strawberry Fudge Palette tha...

A Guide To Lady Gaga's Massive Tattoo Collection

Long before Lady Gaga (née Stefani Germanotta) landed a Las Vegas residency, she was performing in dive bars in New York wearing nothing but handmade bedazzled bras and fishnet stockings. Since then, she's become known for embracing her body in all its forms — along with the tattoos that cover it.Gaga's ink might be particularly buzzy right now (especially because one of her latest may or may not be a subtle tribute to A Star Is Born co-star Bradley Cooper), but the star has actually had most o...

"This rethinking of disposability has an anti-capitalist appeal, as does thinking of oneself as someone who is not only, always, a consumer in search of the next purchase."

"But in the same way that making sustainable clothing purchases is a privilege many cannot afford, [visible mending] is a privilege to have the resources needed not only to mend something but also to take the time to make it beautiful. It is also a privilege to feel comfortable wearing clothes that are visibly worn, however beautiful the repair. We need to be careful not to romanticize the history of mending, a craft that has grown out of necessity. Miho Takeuchi, a traditional sashiko instructo...

CHANEL Spring-Summer 2019 Makeup Collection

With the release of the CHANEL Spring-Summer 2019 makeup collection, Lucia Pica has designed her boldest collection yet. Inspired by a trip to Japan and South Korea, the VISION D’ASIE: L’ART DU DÉTAIL collection explores the play of light, color and texture. The centerpiece of the Spring Summer Collection is the Les 9 Ombres Eyeshadow Palette in Edition N2 quintessence. The 9-pan palette has a variety of bold and neutral shades and textures.

A unique old clothes shop on a shuttered Japanese high street

Away from Japan’s big cities, the combination of a shrinking population and urban migration are having a visibly devastating effect. Once thriving towns are now all too often little more than sad reminders of the past, with shops shuttered up and former essentials such as train services slowly disappearing. A phenomenon I documented just recently in this photo essay: Looking for the lost. Of course not everything closes, and life does go on for the generally older residents who remain, meaning a...

Maquillage 0R311 Dramatic Styling Eyes D Was Launched in Fall But Gives Me A Pretty Spring Eye Look Anyway!

Maquillage Dramatic Styling Eyes D in 0R311 was an eyeshadow palette that launched in August for Fall 2018. I immediately purchased it upon launch because I do so love me some orange eyeshadow. It actually deserves mentioning that Maquillage rarely makes things I feel the need to purchase. It’s probably one of my least loved Shiseido brands! I dunno why! I just don’t always find their releases appealing! But sometimes, some of their releases call to me and OR311 called to me for sure! I actuall...

Wet n Wild Expert Level Cleansing Oil Review & Swatches

Wet n Wild Expert Level Cleansing Oil ($8.99) is a new, cleansing oil that launched with the Pump Collection for Spring 2019. Everyone is so into these Athleisure makeup collections lately but I sort sit here and shrug over them as they don’t always make sense to me (I don’t wear makeup when I’m working out). However, smaller skincare products like this and the Best Exfoliating Cleansing Balls that I reviewed recently can be pretty handy to travel with or use after a workout. Although, cleans...

Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer Awesome Except The Damn Alcohol

Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer ($15 to $30) a new hydrating, makeup primer that contains hemp-derived cannabis seed extract that acts to hydrate and hold makeup in place. Aside from a source of hydration, cannabis seed extract doesn’t have any long term benefits. I always feel like Milk Makeup is trying to be extra edgy with the “Kush” and hemp makeup and skincare releases. Shrug. Maybe I’m overthinking it but that’s how it comes across to me. None the less I decided to give this a try as it loo...

33 Netflix Movies To Get Excited For In 2019

2018 was the year we finally grasped the purpose of a Netflix movie. They're there to create unforgettable internet moments, experienced together. To All the Boys I Loved Before and Set It Up reminded us, after a long drought, that we do indeed love the romantic comedy. Bandersnatch had us waking up at seven in the morning to try out all the different possible endings before work. After a flurry of memes, Bird Box eventually inspired an ill-advised real world challenge. And that's not even touc...

Plasma Masks & Japanese Face Massage: The Pro Secrets To Lady Gaga's Skin

Neither Lady Gaga's longtime fans, nor those who just know her as that singer who wore a meat dress on the red carpet, could have guessed that Gaga would eventually be recognized as much for her flawless skin as she is for her tattoo collection and intimate on-stage performances.The singer and actress's skin first became a topic of conversation after she told the Los Angeles Times that, during a 2016 screen test for A Star Is Born, her director and co-star Bradley Cooper requested she remove he...

The Steamiest, Sexiest Movies Of All Time

The sexiest movies aren't necessarily lurking in the adults-only section of HBO — or in the deleted archives of one's browser history. Often, the steamiest films are mainstream. Whether a flick actually features a crazy-hot love scene or a more innocent tryst between a forbidden couple, it's perfectly acceptable to find these movies tantalizing. Let's be real: That was totally the filmmaker's point.As a celebration of the sexiest films to ever grace the big screen, we've rounded up a collectio...

12 New Berlin Restaurants to Try Out in 2019

But my list of interesting new openings has already surpassed 10 so it’s about time for another one for 2019!

A Double Cleansing Routine That Won’t Strip Your Skin

Ahh the Korean Double Cleansing Method truly a great way to keep your complexion looking bright, clean, and fresh. It’s also an equally great way to strip your skin and make it dry! If you’re not familiar with the double cleanse method it’s one that Korean women use for clear skin and involves washing your face using two steps and two different cleaners. The first cleanser is typically an oil-base ones and the second is typically a water-based cleanser. The idea is not only to get your skin ...

Lunasol EX06 Chocolat Figue Melty Chocolat Lips Review & Swatches

Lunasol EX06 Chocolat Figue Melty Chocolat Lips is a new limited edition lipgloss that launched with the Lunasol Valentine’s Day 2019 Collection. I’m a rather big fan of the original Melty Chocolate Lip shades which made picking up this shade a no brainer for me. The original three shades launched for Fall 2015 and as you guessed by the name they are inspired by chocolate and even taste and smell like it! The original formula had a very subtle fragrance and flavor but it seems like this new sha...
