Spring 2018 color trend
It's panda-monium! MAC Nicopanda

Curator's Corner, 4/29/2018

CC logoSigh.  I know it doesn't seem like it, but I actually schedule my posts 4-6 weeks in advance.  And when I say schedule I don't mean I have a vague idea about what I want to blog about, I have specific days picked out for posts.  Inevitably, no matter how much I plan, my schedule gets off track...which is why my posts have been so massively inconsistent timing-wise.  I can only hope this bothers you less than it bothers me!  I'm aiming to stick to the schedule I have planned through the month of May, but we'll see what happens.  Without further ado, here are some overdue links for April. 

- If I make it to the beach this year I'm definitely taking some glitter sunscreen.  Alas, Racked is a total killjoy about it, but at least one brand offers biodegradable glitter.

- Out:  brow art.  In:  nose art.

- We are inching ever closer to making the beauty industry truly diverse and inclusiveAlmay still needs a lot of work on that, though.

- For years I thought drugstore mainstay NYX was founded in the early '80s, but it was actually established in 1999.  This timeline of the company proved rather eye-opening.

- Not sure which is worse, counterfeit makeup or makeup for kids.  Yikes. 

- Speaking of cosmetics safety, I'm no fan of the Kardashians but if it takes one of them meeting with members of Congress to push for cosmetics regulation, I'm all for it (hypocritical though it may be.)

- Just for fun.

The random:

- In '90s nostalgia, 1995 film Empire Records is getting the musical treatment, and Nickelodeon is rebooting kid favorite Double Dare.  Meanwhile, some film critics propose that the decade was indeed the best for movies.

- Elsewhere in pop culture, Broad City is coming to a close.  To be honest though, I'm relieved as I thought the past 2 seasons were rather lackluster.

- Every dog has its day...or museum?  At least these are real institutions, unlike the spate of Instagram-friendly museums that keep popping up.  Maybe I'm just jealous and bitter that I still don't have an actual museum, but I have to agree with this piece that these sorts of places cannot be defined as museums.  While I don't have an issue with the overall concept, it's annoying that they call themselves that. Perhaps if I focused solely on entertainment rather than education and history I could finally have my makeup "museum," but I'm not willing to do that.

- Anyway, this mermaid book is at the top of my wishlist!  Also loved this piece on the history of merpeople sightings.

How have you been?  Are you getting excited for warmer weather and longer days?
