Lisa Eldridge Crystal Nebula Elevated Glow Highlighter Review & Swatches

Crystal Nebula Lisa Eldridge Crystal Nebula Elevated Glow Highlighter ($38.00 for 0.43 oz.) is a light, yellowy gold with fine, lighter pearl and a soft, luminous sheen. It imparted a glowing, almost wet-like shine to my skin that wasn’t overtly shimmery but was more intense than a lot of other liquid highlighters on the market (which are often very sheer and lower in pearl). It had a sheerer base, but the intensity of the glow was ...

Lisa Eldridge Celestial Fire Elevated Glow Highlighter Review & Swatches

Celestial Fire Lisa Eldridge Celestial Fire Elevated Glow Highlighter ($38.00 for 0.43 oz.) is a light-medium copper with warmer, fine gold pearl and a dewy sheen. It had sheer pigmentation, as marketed, that was somewhat buildable to more medium coverage if layered up, though I’d say that the finish became more shimmery and intense when layered overall. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and thin without being too watery or too d...

Lisa Eldridge Cosmic Rose Elevated Glow Highlighter Review & Swatches

Cosmic Rose Lisa Eldridge Cosmic Rose Elevated Glow Highlighter ($38.00 for 0.43 oz.) is a light, golden peach with ultra-fine pearl that gave it a soft, luminous sheen when left to set and dry down on skin. It wasn’t transfer-proof but fairly transfer-resistant, and it was key to let it set as this was how one achieved the “smoothing” effect that helped the product meld better with skin and appear reflective and glowing without bei...

Feeling my oats for the last time this year

Having sown my wild oats (see the post for December 12, 2018), I can now afford the luxury of looking at the origin of the word oat. It would be unfair to introduce the holiday season by discussing a word of unknown etymology. A Christmas carol needs a happy end, and indeed I have something reassuring to say.The Latin for “oats” is avena, a word known to some from botany and to some from the family name Avenarius “pertaining to oats,” oaty, or oat–some, as it were. Two special terms exist: avena...

Sowing one’s etymological oats

For many years I have been studying not only the derivation and history of words but also the origin of idioms. No Indo-European forms there, no incompatible vowels, not consonant shifts, but the problems are equally tough. Sometimes it suffices to discover the source of an enigmatic word, in order to understand the phrase. Thus, once we find out what kibosh means, we can decipher the phrase to put the kibosh on. As we have seen, a whole book was needed to approach the truth. Or what is dander i...

Investigations of human myosin VI targeting using optogenetically controlled cargo loading [Biochemistry]

Myosins play countless critical roles in the cell, each requiring it to be activated at a specific location and time. To control myosin VI with this specificity, we created an optogenetic tool for activating myosin VI by fusing the light-sensitive Avena sativa phototropin1 LOV2 domain to a peptide from Dab2...

The Rule-Breaking NYC Designer Who Hasn't Received The Hype He Deserves

Photo: Jason Nocito/Courtesy of Telfar. Once in a blue moon, a person comes along who manages to straddle art, fashion, and business without ever getting confused — and also hits a nerve with society at large. Many people have pointed to Georgian designer Demna Gvasalia of Vetements and Balenciaga for being the savant of our generation, with his couture take on streetwear that mirrors the borrow-and-repurpose ethos of the internet generation. But, you don't have to look across the Atlantic f...

Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, and creator of sleep news and advice website SleepBetter.org.  “Most people are sleeping on terrible pillows.  These pillows are either dirty, worn out, or poorly made.” To combat this ...
