(This type of treatment is also called androgen deprivation therapy, or ADT). New research is suggesting the sequence of these treatments may be crucially important.

- Tower 28 Coconut & Oat ShineOn Milky Lip Jelly Glosses Reviews & Swatchesby Christine on November 30, 2020 at 5:00 pm
Tower 28 Coconut ShineOn Milky Jelly Lip Gloss ($14.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a brighter, peony pink with moderate, warm undertones and a milky, cream finish with moderate shine. It had semi-sheer color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly on my lips, though there was a smidgen of product that settled into my lip lines--it wasn't noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The texture was smooth, more like a gel-like cream, so it had substance and some thickness but it wasn't heavy or tacky. It wore well for two hours and felt hydrating over time. Tower 28 Oat Continue Reading…
- Lethal Cosmetics Hybrid Magnetic Face Powder Review & Swatchesby Christine on November 30, 2020 at 3:00 pm
Lethal Cosmetics Hybrid Magnetic Face Powder (Blush) ($14.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a darker lavender with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. The powder took on a softer, more natural matte finish--so not shimmery or shiny but not totally flat--that was kinder to skin texture and seemed to make the product easier to blend out overall. It had buildable pigmentation from medium to opaque (two to three layers) with a smooth, more velvety texture that wasn't too dense nor too softly-pressed into the pan. It lasted well for eight hours before fading slightly.

- Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 654by Karen on November 30, 2020 at 6:57 pm
So…what is the Monday Poll? Excellent question! It isn’t, contrary to its name, an actual poll, like with little clicky buttons. It’s just a list of five more or less random questions I’ve been posting on this blog every Monday morning for the past quadrillion years (since 2007). I love reading your answers, and it helps me get my week off to a good start. 🌻 1. Best thing about my day so far: ________. Frankly, the best thing about my day so far has been the coffee! I bought a bag of Trader Joe’s Light Roast coffee for the first time in ages and forgot how good it is. Mmm… It’s mellow, very little bite, which is perfect for me because I’m a coffee wimp. I don’t need to be challenged by my morning beverages, but I digress… I’m drinking it with a splash of half and half, and it’s absolutely delightful. 😋 2. Pick one — I [LOVE/LOATHE] surprises. LOVE 3. In my spare time, I ________. …wonder why I don’t have more spare time. LOL! 4. I’m very picky about ________. …eye makeup brushes, Thanksgiving side dishes (I can’t do stuffing or mashed potatoes out of a box, or gelatinous cranberry sauce out of a can), liquid foundation, oranges, underwear, socks, jeans, dental floss, pasta, hair ties, face lotion and writing utensils.

- Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 635by Karen on November 30, 2020 at 2:33 am
There were a few months — a very brief window — when Tabs was just, like, checked out and burnt out from kitty modeling, and he actually packed up all of his things and headed to big sky country in order to pursue cowboy life. Yes, it’s totally true! I guess I should’ve become suspicious when he had me play Bon Jovi’s acoustic version of Dead or Alive on repeat for three weeks straight. Next thing you know, I’m ordering cowboy boots, 10-gallon hats and elaborate belt buckles (which, believe me, are not easy to find for overweight tabby cats). Don’t ask me why I was so shocked when he announced one day that we were moving to his ranch in Montana. To be honest, I actually really loved it there. I liked being off the grid, and I appreciated Tabs’ affinity for horses. Looking at him, you wouldn’t think he was a horse cat. I mean, he was all soft paws and immaculately groomed fur, but he got down and dirty, man! Ranch life suited him well. There were a few instances when I could have sworn he was communicating with his ponies telepathically.

- Saturday Surfing, Nov. 28, 2020by Karen on November 28, 2020 at 5:07 pm
Is it just me, or does today feel like the third Saturday in a row? 🤣 MAN, sure is nice to have some time off. I love Thanksgiving week! I’m about to head out soon for a hike at the nearby College of Marin Indian Valley campus and to play “soccer” with li’l bean on their field. I say “soccer” in airquotes because I don’t really know anything about actual soccer at all, because I grew up majorly Asian, and our equivalent of playing soccer was playing piano (seriously, everyone I knew did it), but CoyCoy really seems to enjoy kicking the ball around, so that’s what we do. It’s fun. Oh, regarding the gluten-free cheddar garlic biscuit/mini scones recipe I mentioned on Thanksgiving, I’m going to whip up another batch this weekend (twist my arm, why don’t ya?!) and take some pics and notes along the way. Then I’ll post it later this week. That is, if I don’t pass out from butter and cheese-induced ecstasy, HAHAHA! Onto this week’s reading… Your Mariah Carey fun fact for the day: Mimi never wears red lipstick during Christmas! ✨🎄 Her makeup artist Kristopher Buckle uses this shade instead.
