“Shimmer” Is “Glitter” All Grown Up

In middle school, when my friends and I first started wearing makeup, glitter was all the rage. We wore glitter eyeshadow, glitter bronzer, glitter lip gloss, glitter nail polish, and glitter anything else we could find.

Now that I’m older, I think glitter makeup makes me look like a grown-up who’s trying really, really hard not to age a day over 14. But I don’t need to be without sparkles — shimmer is totally allowed. Polishes like Dior’s new color Black Sequins look sophisticated, not sophomoric because the little bits of shine are teeny-tiny, whereas with glitter, they’re chunky. See, size really does matter.

Who The Hell Is Sasha Fierce?

I mean when non-celeb-types start coming up with alter-egos, they’re usually deemed insane, and if they commit some heinous crime, then “Law & Order” immortalizes them with a ripped-from-the-headlines episode. But since Bey is the extremely talented entertainer that she is, we’ll give her a pass on this one. And chalk all of this Sasha Fierce business up to marketing for her new album. Keep reading »

We See Chick Flicks: Zack And Miri Make A Porno

Starring Seth Rogen, Elizabeth Banks, Justin Long
Directed by Kevin Smith

Last night I got to see the much-talked-about movie “Zack and Miri Make a Porno” as part of the CMJ Film Festival. Quite honestly, I was not impressed. Maybe it’s because there has been so much media attention surrounding the movie because of its title and the banning of certain posters. Or maybe my sense of humor just doesn’t mesh well with writer/director Kevin Smith’s. Either way, I thought the story was a big cliche, and Seth Rogen really didn’t need to say “f&*k” so many times without reason. Keep reading »
