Urban Decay Bondage

Once Upon a Glam...

IMG_8573As party season is fast approaching we need some extra insurance for our sparkle. For ages I have been trying to find the perfect product that will keep my glitter in place, especially around the eyes. I’ve tried so many things, cream shadow with glitter layered over was always the best option, until I found Urban Decay’s Bondage, hmmm inneresting name!

Bondage is marketed as a makeup adhesive. I myself mainly use it to keep glitter in place around my eyes. When I opened the tube for the first time I was a little worried that the formula looked a little tacky and sticky and may be uncomfortable to wear.

I needn’t have worried though, the formula is weightless, spreads like a dream and holds onto your chosen glitter perfectly. I have really sensitive eyes and I have to say this didn’t irritate at all.

Persepolis

The Book Review of Books

persepolisI still remember the first time I’d read Marjane Satrapi’s memoir graphic novel, Persepolis. I was studying science at the University of Melbourne, a degree that I truly hated studying for, and that I never finished.  I spent hours at one of the campus libraries, slowly making my way through their poetry, philosophy and comic book collections (funny how now I study philosophy). That’s how I found Persepolis. I think I remembered hearing about it somewhere, but I didn’t know anything about it.

The book was unassuming. Satrapi’s art style is simply and clear, the book is in black and white. The art gets out of the way to tell the story. It almost feels as though it would take away from the story if it were any different. Yet, it tells the story by itself.

Persepolis is a memoir of Satrapi’s youth, growing up in Tehran. Her parents…

Perspective is everything.

Replaying the newly released Xbox One edition of Grand Theft Auto V has been a bittersweet experience because it has confirmed the nagging doubt I’ve had in my head for around a year now; I scored the game too high when I first reviewed it. It’s a great game to be sure, but I’m not invested in the characters and the combat is clumsy and the driving is awkward and there’s a host of things that bug me. Hell, the writing isn’t even very…

GROUP REVIEW: Mockingjay Part 1

SCREENQUEENS

mockingjay-trailer-katniss-rose

ASHLEY WOODVINE:

As is au fait in film adaptations of teen book series, Mockingjay has been split in two. Part One, subsequently, is lacking in a lot of the action that the book contains. But from what I remember, that action was extremely condensed to the point in which I was genuinely muddled about who was dead, so perhaps this is gonna work out. Mockingjay worked pretty well without the action that it’s predecessors contained, it definitely didn’t bore me, but it felt like something was missing. Maybe it’s because Jennifer Lawrence didn’t have much to do outside of worrying about everyone else or being on the verge of tears. She does play traumatised remarkably though, but the performance highlight was once again Woody Harrelson being funny and cutting and tender and harsh. The opposite end of the spectrum? Liam Hemsworth was so patchy and manages to make Gale even…
