Amazon Zesica Dress Review: Your Boho Summer Dream Dress Costs $30

STYLECASTER | Amazon Zesica dress review

There was definitely a point where the idea of buying clothes on Amazon made me skeptical, but honey, all that has changed. Amazon Fashion is now as reliable as your local Nordstrom or Urban Outfitters, and I’ll be damned if I’m not impulse-buying cute summer must-haves from Amazon on the reg! Amazon now carries major […]

’13 Reasons Why’ Season 4 Review: Responsibility Is Taken for Hannah’s Death

13 Reasons Why

“How did we get here?” That’s one question asked in 13 Reasons Why’s fourth and final season. If it wasn’t already clear that the once realistic show about the challenges of high school had taken a turn towards soapy teen drama territory—the last season solidified it. Some moments were just too absurd to even be […]

Dr Lara Devgan Platinum Lip Plump Review: Is It Worth the Hype?

lip plump before

I was obsessed with lip plumper in high school. I’m in my mid-30s so it was all about DuWop’s Lip Venom back in the early-aughts. Since then, brands such as Too Faced, Lipstick Queen and Buxom have come out with their own temporary lip plumping gloss. (All very good, BTW.) When a new one hit […]

JK Rowling Accidentally Tweets About ‘F–King Up Transphobics’ In Review Of 9-Year-Old’s Artwork

Oh, for a cloak of invisibility right about now. JK Rowling made an embarrassing Twitter blunder on Friday when she accidentally tweeted about “f–king up” transphobic people while reviewing a 9-year-old’s art work. The Harry Potter author is currently judging an online competition for children to illustrate her new story, “The Ickabog”, and has been […]

‘Mrs. America’ Hulu Review: Why One Feminist Hated Watching the TV Show

Mrs. America

When I found out FX created a TV series for Hulu about America’s 1970s movement to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, I squealed with excitement in a way that’s both endearingly genuine and painfully nerdy at the same time. As a feminist writer and activist, I’ve idolized second-wave feminists like Gloria Steinem, and now Hollywood […]

‘Dead to Me’ Season 2 Review: The Feminist Rise of Women Who Commit Crimes

Dead to Me

If we had the crime-fighting trio of Charlie’s Angels before, we have the crime-committing Jen and Judy of Dead to Me now—and they aren’t alone. Their felonies (manslaughter and murder, to name a few) place them among the ranks of Orange Is the New Black, Why Women Kill and Good Girls. There’s a slew of […]

Lady Gaga Stupid Love Eyeshadow Palette Review:

haus labs stupid love

If you’re anything like me, you have a dozen (or so!) eyeshadow palettes and they all sort of look alike. You try to mix up your color use but you keep going back to the same nude shades or, in my case, warm pink ones. Lady Gaga’s Stupid Love Eyeshadow Palette, under her Haus Laboratories […]

Beautycounter Skin Twin Review: Skincare and Lightweight Coverage in One

skin twin

At the beginning of this safer-at-home period, I mistakingly thought my skin would enjoy the break from makeup. But it turns out, stress, lack of sleep and an erratic schedule can wreak havoc on your skin. I’ve been babying it with the most gentle skincare free of irritating ingredients. And that should go for makeup, […]

Insert Name Here Ponytail Hair Extension Review: 3 Ponies You Need Now


I’m the kind of person that likes to look put-together at all times, but doesn’t enjoy spending hours getting ready. OK, I do like spending hours getting ready to go out for real, but given that most of my social interactions at the moment take place on Zoom, I’m not about to spend any extra […]

Huda Beauty Legit Lashes Review Might Surprise You

huda legit lashes

It’s hard to imagine the Queen of Lashes, Huda Kattan, has never launched a mascara in the U.S—until now. Her first-ever product under her makeup line was false lashes but, according to the brand, she worked for four years to create a mascara that she loved. That’s why I had to do a Huda Beauty […]
