Bite Beauty Pastille & Tatin Power Move Lip Crayons Reviews & Swatches

Pastille Bite Beauty Pastille Power Move Creamy Matte Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones paired with a soft, cream finish. The lip crayon was richly pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that felt lightweight and had a smidgen of tackiness, which I felt kept it in place while still offering a very comfortable-to-wear formula. The color applied evenly, thou...

11 Reasons Not to Become Famous (or “A Few Lessons Learned Since 2007”)

November of 2008. I had more hair, a flip phone, and absolutely no idea what was coming. “Let the cymbals of popularity tinkle still. Let the butterflies of fame glitter with their wings. I shall envy neither their music nor their colors.” – John AdamsLetters of John Adams: Addressed to His Wife “If I’m not famous by 30, I might as well put a bullet in my head.” That’s an actual sentence I spoke to one of my closest friends. At the time, I was 28. Fortunately, unlike during my dar...

Listen to the Screams

By being vegan for as long as I have (and vegetarian a few years before that), about 5000 fewer animals were harmed and killed by my lifestyle. But since I blogged about this aspect of my lifestyle (including writing my longest article ever, called How to Be Vegan), I’ve since influenced hundreds (if not thousands) more people to try vegetarianism or veganism for months or years or to adopt such a lifestyle permanently. So the combined impact of going vegan and publicly sharing what I learned...

4 Factors To Consider Before Buying Running Shoes & Walking Shoes

Many people assume that walking and running shoes are alike. They buy based on their looks rather than their function and fit. If you’re a runner, selecting a pair of walking shoes can be detrimental to your performance and may cause some discomfort as they’re not adequately cushioned. The same goes for walkers who mistakenly bring home a pair of running shoes, and find their heels awkwardly too thick. In this article, I’ll be covering what to look for when choosing footwear for running...

MAC That’s Peachy Glow Play Blush Review & Swatches

That's Peachy MAC That’s Peachy Glow Play Blush ($30.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a brighter pop of medium tangerine with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. The texture felt smooth, lightly pliable (almost clay-like–not that creamy or wet to the touch but movable) and felt more like a thin powder once it came into contact with my skin. I found it easiest to apply with fingertips as it blended out more readily (the warmth of my to...

Young man offers cautionary tale against casting adult videos to your TV

One poor Reddit user simply wanted to watch adult content on a larger screen — his family’s TV, specifically — and was betrayed by his own technology. “Don’t cast Pornhub to your TV if your family [is] using Android devices!” the Redditor warned in a recent thread, explaining that his mom just asked him if he was watching Pornhub the night before. “She said a notification came up on her phone and she had blamed my 12-year-old brother,” he wrote. “I had to say yes, obviously. I couldn’t let him ...

Doritos delivered lots of awesome queer Super Bowl ad contenders

We don’t know yet how many commercials will queer up the San Francisco vs. Kansas City matchup at the Super Bowl this year but one likelihood is a new Microsoft Surface Pro 7 spot about the NFL San Francisco 49ers’ assistant coach, Katie Sowers.  She is the league’s first openly gay coach, male or female, though the ad doesn’t mention her sexuality because that’s so 1998. In the only nod to her pioneering position, she says, “I’m not just here to be the token female, I’m here to help us wi...
