I should probably preface this article by saying that I used to read Jezebel, so there is a tiny part of my heart with a slightly mushy spot for them. (Hell, I was a starred commenter back when that was a thing.) However, that mushy spot immediately hardens to stone when they pull some sort of fucking bullshit,...

Jezebel's Article on Contouring is Bad, and They Should Feel Bad
I should probably preface this article by saying that I used to read Jezebel, so there is a tiny part of my heart with a slightly mushy spot for them.

Review: Maybelline Eyestudio Color Plush Silk Eyeshadow in Coral Oasis and Gutsy Green
If you describe something using the word "plush", I'm generally going to assume that you are talking about a stuffed bunny rabbit. In the case of the Maybelline Eyestudio Color Plush Silk Eyeshadows, though, they're just lovely, fine-milled colors. No fuzzy creatures involved.

PopSugar Must Have March 2014 Review
I have chosen not to subscribe to PopSugar Must Have up until now for a variety of reasons. First of all, it costs a whopping $39.99 a month. Second of all, I do check in about what PopSugar is sending out every so often, and sometimes I love it and sometimes I am not interested at all. It's...

Review: Dolce & Gabbana 'The Blush' Luminous Cheek Color in Tan 22
I'm on a new quest: the perfect powder contour. Although Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Hollow is serving me well, I generally prefer packing on powder products over my foundation. NYX Blush in Taupe is a lovely contour color, but the packaging falls apart as soon as I look at it, and I'm having profound problems with having to...
Balm Voyage is one of theBalm's newer makeup palettes, containing 16 eyeshadows and three lip/cheek stains. Although theBalm is billing this as a "travel-friendly" palette, there's really nothing about this gigantic monstrosity of a palette that is going to make for easy lugging around. Maybe theBalm's marketing department and I simply have different definitions of "travel-friendly", but I...
One of the most common tips for stretching the life of your lip products is to use a lip scrub before you apply your color of choice. The gritty exfoliator, proponents claim, will help slough off yucky dead lip skin and goop, allowing your lipstick to adhere more evenly. As a result, throughout the day, it will not...
