Urban Decay Wired 24/7 Eyeliners Reviews & Swatches

Vivid Urban Decay Vivid 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil (Eyeliner) ($22.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium blue with moderate, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was easily built up to full coverage with less than a second layer. The texture was creamy, smooth, and comfortable to work with as it didn’t tug or pull on my lash line. It applied evenly to both my water line as well as my...

NABLA Cosmetics Nude Cutie Palette Review & Swatches

Nude NABLA Cosmetics Nude Cutie Palette ($24.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a new, permanent six-pan palette with three shimmery shades and three “Latex Matte” shades. The Latex Matte finish is quite interesting and complex while actually… working well. It has more of a cream-powder base that looks almost vinyl-like–not quite matte and a bit like the subtle sheen a cream product might produce paired with flaky sparkle. Because of the creami...

This Cool Color Trend Is Taking Over Fashion Month

If color trends were like the beloved offspring in the grand family of fashion, then the attendees of Milan Fashion Week have a very obvious favorite child. The street style scene has been dipped in various tones of this shade and, like Billie Eilish’s hair (that's a clue!), we couldn't be more into it. After days of monitoring the stylish behaviors of Milan's impeccably dressed show-goers, we're declaring green the official color of the season and there's nothing Grinch-like about it. We’ve spo...

The 9 Top-Rated Mattresses We Slept On For 30 Days

"Did Lincoln Really Matter?"

In this rather fraught period of political campaigning, the New Yorker’s Adam Gopnik has chosen to write a thoughtful “review(?)” of Fergus Bordewich’s Congress at War. Since it’s Gopnik you can be very certain that his essay is going to be a lot more than mere review or summary. He does not let us down. So, let’s not work over the essay, but with my comments on the first page of my download. I’ve read through it several times. Admittedly, the comments tell you about me, but they tell you a lot ...

MAC Loud & Clear Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Trompe L'Ol MAC Trompe L’Ol Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light-medium, yellowed beige with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque coverage with a soft, moderately powdery texture that was a bit thinner. There was some fallout if I wasn’t careful with placement and how I worked with it, so I’d definitely recommend some care to avoid it lightening colors near it. This shade lasted well for seven and a half h...

Conservatives are gunning for gay Trumpster Richard Grenell. Cue the eye rolls.

Just days after the appointment of openly-gay former ambassador Richard Grenell to the role of acting head of national intelligence, conservative critics have gone on the attack. Though openly gay, Grenell has a long history of defending Trump and conversion therapy proponent Mike Pence. That record had done little to assuage far-right homophobes who see Grenell as a “gay activist.” Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Council, a group which once said Washington was under the control of ga...

Tarotscopes that slay: New moon in Pisces

Pisces Season is a mystery.  The last sign of the Zodiac doesn’t promise answers to the most profound of life’s questions– it only promises to take us deeper into the questions themselves.  Depending on your relationship with the unknown, Pisces Season can either be a mystical, creative time full of surprise or a miserable slog through your own hidden lose ends.  I’ve had both, sometimes concurrently. I think of Pisces as the sign of the dreamtime, the void and the invisible world. Pisces is th...

For as pale and as milky as the finish was, I was surprised it didn’t apply worse, but it could have went on...
