• Saudi Arabia Turns Off the U.S. Oil Tap

    At last, Saudi Arabia seems to be doing what it takes to reduce the world's most visible oil glut: the one in the U.S. Unfortunately, its renewed vigor comes as OPEC's deal to reduce excess crude stockpiles starts to show signs of unraveling elsewhere, a subject that will be wrestled with by the group's oil ministers as they and other producer nations meet in St Petersburg on Monday.  Weekly U.S. crude oil imports from Saudi Arabia have fallen sharply since early June Data published last week by the U.S. Energy Information Administration show that imports from Saudi Arabia in the week to July 14 fell to their lowest for seven years: just 524,000 barrels a day.

  • Fox News: 'Gypsies' Are Threatening America, Defecating Everywhere and Beheading Chickens, Tucker Carlson Warns

    This week, Tucker Carlson warned his viewers about defecating gypsies. Leaning forward, looking somberly into the camera, the normally spunky prepster painted a Boschian portrait of the purported bedlam that has descended on the small town of California, Pennsylvania. “Integration is not going well,” Carlson declared, citing reports that Roma people “have little regard either for law or public decency.” Similar sentiments have been voiced about a certain short-fingered, tweet-happy head of state, but that would be a story for another cable network-MSNBC, perhaps.

  • I'm Hopelessly Addicted to Magnetic False Lashes (and Never Turning Back)

    Guys, we need to have a talk about magnetic lash extensions. And by "a talk," I mean that I need to tell you how they're a f*cking godsend. I use them most times I wear makeup; basically, if you see me post a selfie anywhere, I'm probably wearing a pair of my magnetic falsies. I keep a pack of the lashes at my desk at work, I care for mine religiously at home, and I estimate that I've convinced at least 15 friends to buy their own pair. Considering the fact that many salons charge between $100 and $200 for lash extension treatments that only last a month, I feel obligated to share my experience with these reusable, easy-to-wear lash boosters. I've become something of a magnetic lash disciple. Basically, if you see me post a selfie anywhere, I'm probably wearing a pair of my magnetic falsies. When the producer of my weekly POPSUGAR Snapchat series, First Impression Friday , told me that I'd be trying magnetic eyelash extensions, I was nervous; I'd never even heard of magnetic lashes, let alone whether they were safe to use! But to make a long story short, the magnetic lash extensions from One Two Cosmetics ended up being my favorite product ever tested on First Impression Friday in over a year of shooting the Snap series - and I refused to part with them after we wrapped. I brought home the package of magnetic lashes and proceeded to wear them every single day for two weeks. Like any self-respecting millennial, I took to social media to spread the word about the magnetic lashes, posting a blurb about them on my Instagram story . I received TONS of questions from friends and followers about the lashes, so I figured this review might be a good place to answer them! Read on for images of the lashes in action and answers to all the questions I've been asked since I began wearing the magnetic lash extensions.
