Promising review: “This palette is so pretty! Definitely a dupe for the Urban Decay palette. The pigmentation is more vibrant on a good eyeshadow base (like concealer or primer) but obviously what shadows aren’t. For the money of this

Texture Diaries is a space for Black people across industries to reflect on their journeys to self-love and how accepting their hair, in all its glory, played a pivotal role in this process.

ERA and Equality Act reject female identity as the basis of women’s rights

If Sleeping Beauty awakened today, she may be shocked to learn that being a woman no longer means being female. Gender perception trumps biological reality. In fact, biology is downright bigotry in the progressive-era redefinition of the age-old understanding of sex as the immutable genetic code of being male or female.
