The Best High-Shine, Nonsticky Lip Glosses That Have Ever Existed

The best lip glosses still make a statement, even 11 years after rapper Lil Mama declared her love for the beauty product. We've come a long way from the early 2000s lip gloss, as brands have made strides to include more moisturizing and skin-softening ingredients, and to make them feel less and less sticky. Included on this list you'll find glosses with glass-like finishes, high-impact opacity, and with irresistible flavors. You'll even find a set that will remind you and your best friends of y...

The Shag is the Coolest Haircut Trend of the Year, and It's Way More Wearable Than You Think

Welcome to the rebirth of the shag. It's not enough that nearly every model on the Victoria's Secret roster is sporting the choppy, layered look - now strangers walking down the street are, too. But this is not your mother's haircut. Think of it more as a modern twist on a completely different classic hairstyle. "The hottest haircut trend for the last couple of years has been the lob," said NYC hairstylist Devin Toth. "It's cool. It's geometric. It's fresh, but it can get boring after a while be...

Best Photos of 2019 by Jim M. Goldstein

Thanks for checking in to see my best photos of 2019. This year for a variety of reasons I didn’t have many opportunities to get out and pursue photography to the degree I’d have preferred. Some of the reasons why were good (new house, settling in, kid activities with both boys being in elementary school for the first time, etc.) and some were downright bummers (passing of my grandfather, getting used to this aging thing, etc.). Through it all though I got the kids out on some bigger trips this ...

Angie's Best Books of 2019

It is the last day of the year. How are you doing at this point? You good to go on? I'm going to. For a number of important reasons, which are too varied (or possibly too private) to enumerate here. So how about we say we shall go on because: "Gansey. That's all there is." I find that "Because Gansey" is highly motivating when motivation is thin on the ground.Also thin on the ground have been my posts this year. And yet, I'm still not stopping. And I still greatly enjoy arriving at this final po...

Closing out the twenty-tens: Schell’s picks for 2019

Though our decade technically has another year to go, the marketing appeal of “Hits of the XXs” type formulations tends to overwhelm such semantic niceties. So as we leave the 2010s behind, there’s more than a little Web-based generalization to be found regarding their musical character and trajectory. I’ll try to keep things in perspective as I review some of the highlights of 2019 that embody the breadth and caliber of contemporary Western art music. All of the following selections are availab...

Liquid Lipsticks Under $15 | 2019 Editor’s Favorites

You know what 2019 was NOT the year of? Liquid lipsticks! The system only counted 88 liquid lipstick reviews (across all price points), which my lips are all-too happy about!  If there’s further reduction in 2020, I’ll like combine my favorites into one post rather than split by price point (particularly since even this year’s roundup is dominated by one brand). If you’re unfamiliar with how I like to do my year-end favorites, here’s the low down: I pull from the products I reviewed in 2019, reg...

To celebrate the end of the decade, we've highlighted six major moments that defined this era in the beauty industry: influencer culture, diversity and inclusivity, the rise of the reality star, K-be...

The Best Books of 2019: Non-Fiction

At PopMatters we tend to be drawn toward cultures' tributaries instead of the crowded, rushing mainstreams. It's in these places, where things are rougher, that we find trained historians rubbing shoulders with smart outsiders, where artists dare us to follow them and intellectuals show us where and who we are and from whence we came with discomfiting yet engaging clarity. There is no certainty in these places -- but there are many possibilities. Notably, of our many books listed here, graphic w...

The Best Books of 2019: Fiction

Engaging with a work of fiction is, at its best, a daring process for both parties. The writer expects the reader's mind to be pried open, be it persuaded by a delightfully ticklish feather or forced by a cold rusty crowbar. No matter. The reader submits. But it better be worth it.We have some lighter works in our favorites of 2019 -- the art of Joni Mitchell, the imagination of Elizabeth Gilbert -- we certainly need such sweetness to give light to these crushing times. But some of the best work...

The Best Films of the Decade

Ten years ago, Netflix was an innocuous DVD-by-mail company, the Marvel tsunami was just testing the water with “Iron Man” and “Thor,” and the “Star Wars” empire still belonged to George Lucas, not Disney.

Look No Further: These Are the Best Face Washes For Every Skin Type

You know that scene in My Best Friend's Wedding when Julia Roberts's character self-identifies as the Jell-O to Cameron Diaz's crème brulée? It's simple. Comfortable. Maybe that's what Michael wants! Well, face wash is the Jell-O of skin care. Fancy face masks and exfoliators are nice, but to be clear: they could never be Jell-O. You see, face wash is the essential first step in any skincare routine (some dermatologists even say that, if you do anything at all, make it that you take off your m...

51 Times Celebrities Caught Tattoo Fever in 2019

You've heard it ever since you bought your first J-14 magazine: "Stars - they're just like us!" Here's the thing: they're really not.

By and large, we don't share a lot in common with celebrities. One of the only exceptions: tattoos. If anyone loves a trendy and delicate tattoo more than regular degular people, it's celebrities.
