On Beauty Q&A: Caftans, Baby Gifts, and What Is Up With BB Creams?

@bitzyboozer This was my experience too. I went to a high school with a high population of international students, many of them Korean, and they said that the skin ideal there is basically the opposite of America--pale is preferred to tan.

On Chiara Atik, What's in Your Handbag Right Now?

@totallyunoriginal nope, those come with iPhones now. The iPad wall charger is a smaller version of the brick that comes with Apple laptops, it even has a duckhead (the bit with the flip-out wall prongs, here http://www.approachchina.com/pic/plug/pgcdt3.jpg) that pops off. Why, I don't know.

On Beauty Q&A: Bullet Bras, Rancid Perfume, and Mascary

@paddlepickle trufax. This may not be universally true, but I find that with expensive stuff I get an adequate amount of lather with a tiny (dime-sized? hate that phrase) amount, whereas for Suave I need like a palmful to get my scalp fully engulfed in suds.
