Eloise's 24-Hour Product Diary: Lush, Bite, & a Safety Razor

I have been obsessed with beauty products since I was a wee child. From Bonnie Bell peel-off nail polish to Wet ‘N’ Wild lipstick to Fetish perfume to absolutely everything at The Body Shop - I loved all of it. From childhood through college, there wasn’t a gimmick I didn’t buy into or a supposedly life-changing… » 8/04/15 4:37pm Yesterday 4:37pm

Allure Stupidly Defends Their Stupid Afro Tutorial For White Women


Allure magazine has rightfully been dragged through the mud over the past few days for a hair tutorial in their August issue called, “You (Yes, You) Can Have An Afro,” which instructs white women on how to achieve an “Afro.” Unfortunately for Allure, the tutorial doesn’t begin and end with, “be black.” » 8/03/15 6:30pm Monday 6:30pm

Maybe Beards Aren't Full of Poop Bacteria After All

Last week, the internet erupted with the news that beards, those beautiful things that hide men’s weak chins and childhood acne scars, are chock-full of something more than manliness—and that something is poop. For anyone either excited or horrified by this news (my immediate reaction was to go drag my bearded face… » 5/04/15 1:00pm 5/04/15 1:00pm

The Slacker's Guide to Getting Haim Hair and Becoming the Fourth Haim
