Lipstick Wheel


Wrote Hilary Howard in the October 6, 2010 New York Times, "The French company Make Up For Ever is providing a disc-shaped lipstick-shade finder (above) in Sephora stores, where the line is sold. It is to accompany Rouge Artist Intense, its new 50-color lipstick collection. The finder takes into account skin tone and hair color to come up with the ideal hues of pink, red and beige."

Can't make it to the store?

No problem: try it here.

Pop Culture Matters — "Your pop culture news channel"


Never heard of this site before this morning when Cary sent me a link to it, adding "We're all over it!"

Well, I suppose he could say "we" seeing as his name does appear (below, upper left hand corner)


but I was more struck by the fact that bookofjoe appears on the home page, via posts and tweets, 17 times.

Jeez, looks like my newest fan club.

From the site:


Mattters offers easy, single-click access to high quality, real-time, news and stories about the thousands of topics that the major news organizations ignore, but which really, really matter to the rest of us.

Each website and tweep is hand-picked by our staff after laboriously researching, examining, poking, probing and dissecting it/them. Those that are consistantly the most interesting, the most relevant, that have the nicest photos and in-depth news or interesting speculations are preferred.

We don't care if a website is a major website or just has a few dozen visitors each month — if they have great content, we love them!

Its all about helping everyone "follow their interests." We hope to make this so easy and fun that we can follow interests we never knew (or had forgotten) we had!


Whoever's behind this site, keep up the good work.
