A Little Eye Sparkle Never Hurt Anyone

This is a bit too Lisa Frank. Fortunately the Gabriella Salvate eyeliner isn’t anywhere near this.In our Volume 1: Eyeliner History Exposé, we learned about how kajal was used in ancient times to ward off the evil eye and UVA. While us ladies may no longer need eyeliner to protect against the evil eye (well, maybe in Detroit), we do feel a slight addiction to Gabriella Salvete’s Glitter Eyeliner.

Debbie Wasserman-Vogue

The harsh reality.Having a rough day? Not particularly happy with what you see in the mirror? Well, dear PDers, don’t worry. You too can be beautiful.

Case in point, do you recall back in September when we held the first annual PD’s Worst Hairstyle Awards? And Debbie Wasserman-Schultz took the crown? Okay, loves, let’s check out her spread in Vogue.

The Sad Truth: Paying More for Something Don’t Mean It Will Have Better Quality

Pretty in the purse, less so on your lashes.There is this widely accepted maxim that if one pays more money for x than surely that x must be of better quality than the similar, although less expensive, y.

Unfortunately that math just doesn’t check out, no matter how much I you want to believe its validity.

Case in point: YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils.

Tranny Egyptian to the Boardroom

Ever thought about why eyeliner?

Eyeliner is a cosmetic staple, peddled by pink-clad Mary Kay’s saleswomen worldwide, with the average women owning at least three different kinds. Here at PD, we were curious if you’d had a chance to consider what it is, where it comes from, and why the hell you devote five minutes to it each morning? Eyeliner rediscovered from the John Boy King.

Let’s start with history. In a sense eyeliner started out as the original pair of shades. Back in Ancient Egypt, eyeliner wasn’t just a female thing; in fact to go against popular belief, guyliner wasn’t invented by hairbands of the late 70’s and 80’s, and it certainly wasn’t invented by angsty Emos. The universal application of eyeliner in Egypt was done for two main reasons. First, as a form of political superstition to ward off the evil eye; you know the types of bad mojo like being enslaved, bitten by an asp, or being forced to marry a sibling. Second, eyeliner was also thought to protect the eyes and skin from the glare of the sun. Unlike Cairo circa 2006, one couldn’t just drop $5 at a market stall and pick up a new pair of knock-off Ray Bans. Nope, inside they would grab their eyeliner, or kajal (you can thank us later when don’t pull a Chris Matthews and actually win Jeopardy), to endure those long summer days.
