What's In Store For ColourPop's 2016 Fall Collection

It's a mix of '90s grunge meets dolled up 21st century class.

Get hyped, cause the hottest, Insta-famous makeup brand ColourPop just unveiled its fall collection!

Their latest makeup additions pair 90s grunge hues off with the 2000s cool, classy finish. And as usual, the indie beauty brand's products are all under $10. Yeah, you read that right.

During their Labor Day sale, ColourPop released another four fresh liquid lipsticks shades as free bonuses and debuted a brand new set of striking lipsticks, dusky shadows and shimmery highlights for fall 2016.

1. Bonus: Viper, Times Square, Notion and Lovebug

This lovely quartet of nude, rosy mauve, sorrel and vinous will most definitely spice up your fall months and your Pumpkin Spice Latte. ColourPop released these four as bonuses for their Labor Day sale online. Spend $10 and snag of these timeless matte shades for free!

2. Brand New: Hutch, Sookie and Dukes

Pair Sookie's crème plum gloss over Dukes Lippie Pencil to achieve a perfectly contoured, shiny lip! Or swap out the two for a blotted application of Dukes Lippie Stix for an earthy hue. The Hutch satin liquid lipstick is a magical replication of blackberries, with a matte aubergine exterior over the underlying wine red sheen. Emphasize Hutch's subtle berry red color with a swipe of Sookie as an overcoat.

3. Glosses: Saigon, Stain, Fudg'd and Lychee

Fiery Saigon is the only true, warm-toned matte of this set, which also includes three glosses: the sheer burgundy Stain, a russet nude Fudg'd and the translucent suede Lychee. As you can see, all of these shades look absolutely gorgeous on all three of the skin tones above. Since its conception two years ago, Colourpop has made a point to include colored women in its swatches as well as produce specific shades for a racially diverse market, and clearly, it's been paying off.

4. Highlighters: Flexitarian, Might Be, Candyman and Do Not Disturb

From left to right we have the highlighters: pearlized Flexitarian, then Might Be in rose gold, a trophy gold Candyman and finally, the bronze Do Not Disturb.

The silvery Flexitarian may be well-suited for paler skin, whereas the peachy Might Be would set off a tanned complexion. The honey shade of Candyman or plated gold hue of Do Not Disturb both appear to compliment deeper tones, such as olive, sepia or ebony skin. But you know what's the best part of highlighters? They serve dual purposes as highligters and eyeshadows!

5. Eyeshadows: Tang and Stereo Super Shock

The first shadow, known as Tang, is a dusky mauve with a matte finish. Tang is still available online for $5, but its sidekick Stereo Super Shock, which is pictured second, has been all the rage since its premiere on Instagram. This gem can be used to smoke out the edges of your eyeshadow or gleam front and center on the middle of your eyelid. The Tang and Stereo Super Shock duo make for a complimentary eyeshadow look that beauty vloggers are eager to try!

So which shades do you like best from ColourPop's 2016 fall collection?

15 Actual Thoughts You Have While Wandering Around TJ Maxx

God bless TJ Maxx.


I recently went to TJ Maxx with a friend with the sole purpose of not buying anything. We literally looked at everything, though, and later, I walked out with half a dozen items I was not planning on buying. I'm just glad it was only six from the number of things I saw and liked.

Here were my thoughts as I wandered around TJ Maxx for an hour.

1. "A Michael Kors purse? I wonder how cheap it is..."

2. "Of course I have to check out the clearance section... except that's basically the entire store."

3. "I'm not sure what I would write in a notebook, but these are hella cute."

4. "This may look horrible on me but I'm going to try it on anyway."

5. "Maybe I should just look at some nice clothes for work. You can never have too many business casual clothes..."

6. "These Adidas shoes are so cheap yet still expensive."

7. "$5 makeup... How bad could it be?"

8. "American Eagle shorts for only $15?!"

9. "I can't carry all this stuff."

10. "Do I have a giftcard?"

11. "I want to decorate my house with everything in here."

12. "Oh, look, something I didn't need but buying anyway."

13. "Could I pull this off? It's cheap and looks good on the mannequin..."

14. "Yeah, I could use another phone case."

15. "Yes, I found what I wanted. No, I did not need any of this."

Space Force Or Space Ploy?

What if the the announcement to create a sixth branch of the US Military is a powerful ploy.


The US President Trump announced recently his decision to create a sixth branch of the military and hinted at calling it "…Space Force…" adding that "...it is vital that our military maintains its dominance and competitive advantage in that domain..." Ultimately the president's order on Monday seemingly mandates the Pentagon to begin drawing up plans for this new branch, though a Congressional vote is required to make it official. "Establishing a service branch requires congressional action…" as noted by Rep. Michael R. Turner who chairs for the House of armed Services Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces.

Let us not forget back in 2007, China demonstrated their Anti-Satellite (ASAT) system by destroying one of their own aging weather satellites. The United States could not ignore the implications and realization of it’s space assets vulnerabilities.It is arguable that with China’s established space program Strategic Support Force (SSF) in 2015, tasked with space and cyber operations could be a major cause to this shift in the United States. But, let us not also forget that in 2015, the U.S. Congress passed the U.S. Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act, which allows United States citizens to own space and asteroid resources as private property. What happens if these legally purchased and or owned sections of space are threatened? There must be a governing body to protect these interstellar investments.

But, is this recent and boastful act but the president a clever economical ploy from a noted clever business man? While the world is in estranged toil, China arming up and buying up natural resources like there is no tomorrow and angry over recent declaration of new sanctions; Russia is in a Cold War with the USA, again; The Middle East still isn't really all that fixed, who would have guessed that; and North Korean still at a standstill though things seem to be leaning towards the positive. Could this not be a cleaver ploy to divert the world's attention? Perhaps postponing a all out conflict, in traditional since. In creating a sixth branch of the military and pushing it forward in full swing it's not hard to believe that the rest of the world's major players would fall-suite right quick.

In doing so it would create a massive space race, the likes of which no one has ever seen. Who will control the space around our planet! This recent announcement may very well send the world into a different kind of war. As countries begin to pool their warfare resources towards their space programs and defense. Depleting their resources and man power, ultimately straining their economies, diverting them from possible trade war or open war here on the ground. But who knows. Arguments and turmoil over what exactly the Space Force is expected to do are likely going to be part of political debate for decades to come. All we know for sure is that even though President Donald Trump says he is creating a sixth branch of the military he needs congress to vote it in. Only time will tell as we move forward in the coming months.
