Eyeliner, where have you been all my life? I have enough eyeshadows and eyeshadow palettes to keep me going until 2036. But after an unremarkable experience with a plain brown MAC eyeliner, I gave up on it.

My mistake. While I usually use a kickass BECCA eyeliner, which smudges beautifully and lasts all day, I’m also rather partial to Avon’s Glittersticks Diamonds eyeliners. Their twinkle is subtle, not “Rock Of Ages,” and it’s beyond easy to apply. Just try not to think about how the name sounds like a Care Bear. Keep reading »

Sheryl Sandberg at Harvard
Watch Video

There’s many commencement addresses delivered each year by celebrities, but too few of them are delivered by crazy-successful businesswomen who have us hanging on their every word. Facebook’s COO Sheryl Sandberg delivered the 2012 address at her alma mater, Harvard Business School, this week. “Careers … are not a ladder, they’re a jungle gym,” she told them. ”Move sideways, move down, move on, move off.” Smart, no? You can read the full text on of her speech Huffington Post, too.

WTF Chart: Men Overwhelmingly Quoted In Media About Women’s Rights, Abortion & Birth Control

This is a chart made by the media watchdog group 4thEstate.net about the numbers of women and men quoted in the media in print and on TV on women’s issues. As you can read about in more detail on 4th Estate’s site, regardless of the publication or show, men’s voices still over-represent even when the issue being discussed is women’s rights, abortion, birth control or attacks on Planned Parenthood.

The chart itself requires little explanation. The questions it arises? Those are endless. [4thEstate.net]

Abducted By Aliens?
John Edwards
Rielle Hunter wanted to claim she'd been abducted by aliens. Read More »
  • What a coincidence! Yesterday a North Carolina jury found John Edwards not guilty of one charge and a mistrial of five other charges that he misused campaign funds to hide his pregnant mistress. Today, the ex-mistress herself Rielle Hunter announced her new tell-all memoir, What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter, and Me. Do you think she will explain that time she suggested the campaign release a statement saying she was abducted by aliens? Or tell us how she spent her $9,000-a-month allowance?  [People]

  • Pregnant Snooki returned to the “Jersey Shore” beach house in Seaside Heights for filming, for who-the-fuck-knows-what reason. She can’t drink. She can’t hot tub. She probably can’t even GTL! [TMZ] Keep reading »

Republican Rep.’s Spokesman: “Hurl Some Acid” On Female Democratic Senators

Today's Lady News photo
  • The campaign spokesperson for Rep. Nan Hayworth (R-NY), a guy named Jay Townsend, wrote a Facebook message about senators who support the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act but paid their male staffers more than their female staffers.  Townsend wrote, “Let’s hurl some acid at those female democratic Senators who won’t abide the mandates they want to impose on the private sector.” It never fails to shock me how dumb people in politics can be when it comes to writing Facebook comments.
