I know the beauty industrial complex yells a lot about how the bright lip is the only thing you need in your arsenal, and how it makes you look instantly pulled together, gorgeous and glowy, hiding the hideous shebeast beneath with one swipe. This is the job of most beauty writing. It alternately intimidates and inspires you, telling you that you are both beautiful and a monster. It’s basically the manipulative best frenemy, expertly skilled in the backhanded compliment. Everything about this is bullshit. But, there’s a teensy nugget of truth in this lipstick mess.

Artist Daan Roosegaarde paid the ultimate tribute to Vincent Van Gogh by installing a glowing bike path inspired by his “Starry Night” painting.

The path runs on solar-powered LED lights and was designed to appeal energy conservancy enthusiasts, art fans, and any citizens would simply benefit from a beautiful destination in their hometown. The path opened on Wednesday and stretches on for about half a mile. The lights within the path charge during the day and gather enough energy to glow for eight hours through the evening.

Kim Kardashian has become the “butt” of many jokes (sorry I had to), since revealing her naked Paper magazine cover last week, but it’s not only humans who are getting in on the ass action. A few artists over at DeviantArt have created their own covers with famous characters as their cover girls, all the while using Kim as their inspiration. But whose non-fiction ass reigns supreme: Ursula from “The Little Mermaid,” Jasmine from “Aladdin,” Marge Simpson from “The Simpsons” or My Little Pony? Check out their covers after the jump and tell us which is your favorite! Keep reading »
