Long Hair Is a Curse

Long Hair Is a Curse Let me set the scene. I have two guinea pigs. Guinea pigs are supposedly self-cleaning, but my guineas are dumb even by the standards for the species and they have a bad habit of peeing on each other. (They are also afraid of the floor... but I digress.) As a result, they occasionally bring in houseflies...
Review: Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Dolly Housekeeping: I was googling myself... as you do... and I found a bunch of comments about my blog that said things like, "I like her writing, but her blog is so ugly." The latter comment was indisputably true. I am not a talented blog designer, but I think the changes that I made...
Why You Shouldn't Get Your Beauty-Related Science from Newspapers (Especially Bad Ones) I came across a tweet that explains, well... rather a lot about how science-related beauty myths gain traction. It transcribes an ad placed by the Sun on ResponseSource requesting anyone who will say that tattoos cause cancer. If you are willing to make such a statement, the Sun...
Review: Portland Black Lipstick Company Lipsticks There are a lot of arguments in favor of indie makeup, but I think the most compelling one is the capacity for accommodating variety. If you're in search of the perfect red lipstick, you can probably find it in a drugstore. In search of the perfect green lipstick? Indie companies are your new best...
Wantable October 2016 Review This is my third Wantable box. If you can recall, my first two Wantable boxes were super, super similar. They had the same brands on repeat. When I opened this box, I was really bummed. Another Japonesque brush? Another Be a Bombshell blush? Are you shitting me? For $36 a month, this is kind of silly,...
Cosmetics Company History: Rimmel London A $6.99 tube of mascara can have a lot of history. Rimmel London is one of the historical companies responsible for bringing your favorite black eyelash goop to makeup bags near you! Eugene Rimmel, founder of what would become Rimmel London, was born in 1820 in France. His father, a perfumer, moved the family to London...
Review: Fright Night Cleopatra False Eyelashes A drugstore Halloween makeup display is one of the most enticing things on the planet. It's full of products that are tacky to the point of gloriousness. There are grease paints and glow-in-the dark nail polishes shaped like pumpkins. There is hairspray that will tint your bangs green and temporary tattoos for your face....
NASA Astronaut Karen Nyberg Shows Us How One Washes Their Hair in Space Karen Nyberg is a 43-year-old mechanical engineer. As a part of her work for NASA, she took part in Expedition 36, the 36th long-duration mission to the International Space Station, an artificial satellite in low-Earth orbit used to conduct scientific experiments in space. Expedition 36 began on...
Review: Dirty Pig Bath and Beauty Tub Truffles I should probably preface this post by letting you know that Jennifer, the owner of Dirty Pig Bath and Beauty, is a personal friend of mine. I did pay regular retail price for these products on the Dirty Pig website, however, and my opinions will be as unbiased as I can despite...
Review: Illamasaqua Cream Pigment in Hollow I ordered Illamasqua's Hollow back in August and I've been using it more-or-less daily as a contouring product since then. It took me a really long time to pull the proverbial trigger because: 1. There aren't a lot of reviews. This is because Hollow is sort of a niche product. Unless you are fair-skinned and...
