For me, the best thing about the holidays is all time we get to spend with family! Often, we end up catching up on movies missed over the previous year, so I have a longer-than-usual list of movies watched this month.
We’ll probably slow down in January, though I am extremely psyched to see the TV-adaptation of The Alienist (which I’ve basically been waiting for since the early 1990s), which is out at the end of this month. Less anticipated but I’ll still watch: The X-Files (Season 11), which premiered on Wednesday.
What I Saw
Flight of the Conchords (Season 1) 
Psych: The Movie 
Mr. Robot (Season 3) 
Power Rangers 
The Foreigner 
The Hitman’s Bodyguard 
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes 
Spider-Man: Homecoming 
Valerian & the City of a Thousand Planets  (unfinished)
Over the summer, The Face Shop released a collection of makeup and nail polish in collaboration with Marvel! The characters included in the nail polish were Black Widow, Iron Man, Spider-Man, and Thor. Captain America’s logo was used for some of the makeup items (they were super cool-looking—kind of wish I’d picked up one of the palettes!). You can see the collection here.
I hadn’t tried The Face Shop’s nail polishes before, or any of their makeup at all, so I didn’t feel like going whole hog and ordering all four Trendy Nails Duos. I picked up two: Spidy (Spider-Man) and Thunder Storm (Thor). No idea why they didn’t just go with the original character names. And Spidey’s misspelled, to boot!
Anyway. The packaging is nice, and makes for collectible items:
Each Duo comes with two small bottles of polish.
Thunder Storm (02) comes with a magenta and green flake topper (1) and a soft metallic gold (2).
Purple and green seems better suited to the Hulk, but for whatever reason they went with Thor, instead. I’d have gone with a silver and red flake for the Norse
god—seems more obvious, no?
The Face Shop has released a new collaboration with Marvel Comics!
(Sadly, in related news, Stan Lee’s wife Joan just passed away at the age of 93. The Lees had been married for 69 years.)
The collection is flashy and fun, with a couple of skincare products targeted at guys, as well. The prices are in USD and taken from Cosmetic Love (referral link), where the collection is currently 10% off, and worldwide shipping is free.
Trendy Nails Duo in 4 sets: 01 (Iron Man), 02 (Thor), 03 (Spider-Man), 04 (Black Widow)
Anti Darkening Cushion in 4 shades: V201, N201, V203, N203 ($21.06)
