Lemon has the power to brighten up any seafood, chicken, pasta, salad or sauce. But its magic is arguably most apparent in desserts.

Here are 60 lemon desserts to whip up this season, from lemon-raspberry whoopie pies to lemon icebox cookies.

If you can still find Meyer lemons that are in season, you’re one lucky duck. If you can’t (since they’re usually available from November to January), regular lemons will work just fine.

Betty Gilpin Test-Drives Beauty Products for the Age of Ruthless Hi-Def Cameras

Actors don’t just have lines to memorize. They have lines to erase! “Especially when modern cameras pick up whether a single pore has a sore throat,” writes Betty Gilpin, a three-time Emmy nominee for GLOW who next stars in The Tomorrow War. The self-deprecating “product hound” reviews six that she deems worth their luster.

AUGUSTINUS BADER THE FACE OIL

Whenever a makeup artist prepares to put face oil on me, I kindly ask that they not, as every oil makes me break out. Wait—I’m receiving word from my psyche that such confrontation would make me flush the color of liquefied bricks, so instead I say, “Great! Face oil!” and quietly panic. My fellow descendents of potato-and-teacup tribes know the frustration of the skin’s contradictions, but this face oil sinks in like I’m an olive-toned, allergy-less mogul. Augustinus Bader is a German brand that fancy people are obsessed with, thanks to

10 best make-up sponges for a flawless finish

It all began in 2007 with the revolutionary launch of the Beautyblender sponge that changed the way women applied make-up, forever.

Buffing and blending foundation, tinted moisturisers and other bases had never been this easy to apply, nor more flawless on the face.

It was a complete gamechanger for professional make-up artists and beauty junkies alike, and one, 13-years on, we’re still very grateful for.

Although we love a make-up brush (or 10), the use of multiple beauty tools has since been replaced by a piece of innovative foam in a host of shapes and sizes that deliver the perfect canvas for our make-up.

Not only do make-up sponges allow for more buildable application, their porous texture holds onto make-up better than other tools and they guarantee an even complexion, every time. But with so many designs and textures to choose from, how do we spot the difference?

Mixfit V2 – Review 2021

As someone who has maintained a plant-based diet for the past eight years, it’s important that I pay attention to whether I’m getting all the vitamins and minerals I need from what I eat, and using supplements to fill in any nutritional gaps. So when I heard about the $180 Mixfit V2, a Keurig-like smart kitchen appliance that blends up personalized nutrition drinks, I was intrigued. The Mixfit combines 23 essential nutrients in drinks that aim to help you fill in the gaps in your diet and meet your health goals. You use an app to specify your goals, log your daily food intake, and connect a compatible fitness tracker to monitor your activity levels. Based on this data, an algorithm identifies the nutrients your body is lacking, and creates a drink to give you what you need.

While I really like Mixfit’s goal to deliver personalized nutrition on a
