Best Drunk Elephant Products Worth Your Money – 2020 Reviews

The medicine cabinet is the new closet, and just like fashion, in skin care there are those cool brands that pop up on Instagram again and again. Drunk Elephant is one of them.

It’s easy to see why. The brand is millennial clickbait with its minimal packaging, cute product names, and clean ethos. Every product is free of essential oils, “drying alcohols,” silicones, chemical sunscreens, fragrances and dyes, and SLS. And reviews of the best Drunk Elephant products are typically glowing. But Instagrammability and clean formulas come at a price, with most of the line clocking in at more than $50.

That’s not to say that it isn’t worth it. The right serum can be truly life-changing, and a good moisturizer can make your morning routine happier. You just want to know it’s actually good before dropping the cash. So to answer one of our most-asked questions—”Is Drunk Elephant really that good?”—we had Glamour editors put the line to the test. Read on for the best Drunk Elephant products worth your money.

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston Reportedly Hung Out Again After the Oscars

Brad Pitt finally took home his first (acting) Oscar at the 92 Annual Academy Awards, giving a heartfelt acceptance speech that had him looking back on his long career and saying, “Once upon a time in Hollywood, ain’t that the truth?” And while it was certainly a storybook ending to the actor’s very successful awards season, many were wondering about another fairytale obsession: his relationship with Jennifer Aniston.

The former spouses (now just good friends) famously met up backstage during the SAG Awards earlier this year after both took home statues that night. Naturally, this meant several people had their eyes on them the night of the Oscars. Page Six reports that Pitt and Aniston did, indeed, run into each other at Guy Oseary’s famous after-party, which is typically co-hosted with Madonna, who’s currently on tour in Europe.

Sadly, for those who dream of a romantic reunion between the two, it sounds like it was simply a friendly run-in between two people who hang in similar social and professional circles. “We’re told there was no sizzle this time around,” Page Six wrote. “Spies say that while Aniston congratulated Pitt on his win, they didn’t hang out long.”

Well, that sounds decidedly normal and nice—which appears to be the current status of their relationship, in spite of all our projection over a romantic rekindling.

Awards season is basically a months-long networking event for those who work in Hollywood—and now that it’s over, we’re likely to hear a lot less about Brad Pitt/Jennifer Aniston meet-ups. But we’ll always have the SAG Awards. What former couple America chooses to obsess over next is anybody’s guess—but we can’t imagine anyone will take over the Pitt-Aniston shaped hole that’s been present in our collective hearts since the aughts.

That being said, Jennifer Aniston’s birthday is February 11, and Pitt famously attended her party last year. Maybe the same thing will happen this year.

The Best Outlander Sex Scenes

Starz

Season one, episode nine: Claire punishes Jamie.

This moment starts out uncomfortable: Jamie thinks it’s a good idea to spank Claire as punishment for her getting caught by the British. She pushes back, of course, but then shows Jamie she’s cool with rough sex if it’s consensual. That’s when the heat turns up. “Raise your hand to me again, James Fraser, and I will cut your heart out,” Claire says during their rendezvous.

Starz

Season one, episode 10: Knock-knock.

We’ve all been there, right? Your partner’s going down on you, but then a nosy Laird starts tapping at the door. Mere mortals would be startled by this, but not Jamie. Nope, he keeps going—even when the knocking intensifies—and gets Claire to climax. Whoever’s outside can wait, damn it!

Starz

Season one, episode eight: Jamie and Claire bang outside.

Do we need to explain this further? They’re outside! Everyone knows sex in the grass is better than sex in the bed.

Starz

Season one, episode seven (part two): Jamie and Claire’s wedding night gets steamy.

Their wedding night started off slow, but by round three they’re off to the races. The foreplay in this scene is arguably better than the actual sex: Claire has Jamie strip for her. The vibe is electric by the time they make it to the actual bed.

Starz

So did this headline lie? Are you not feeling things? Maybe this final nugget will do the trick: Here’s a super-cut of these scenes. You can thank me later.

Here’s hoping Outlander season five has more sex scenes like this when it premieres Sunday, February 16 on Starz.

Sex Education Season 3: Everything We Know So Far

When Sex Education season two dropped on Netflix in January, Twitter was just as excited as a year ago when the charming British coming-of-age story first debuted.

More of Gillian Anderson and Asa Butterfield’s chemistry as mother-son duo Jean and Otis Milburn is obviously always welcome, but it was some of the characters outside the sex therapists’ home that were given a chance to shine brighter this season, in particular Aimee Gibbs (Aimee Lou Wood), who goes through an achingly relatable #MeToo ordeal on a public bus that Glamour‘s Jessica Radloff describes as the series’ “most crucial” moment to watch.

Meanwhile, Maeve (Emma Mackey) and Otis’ never-ending drama goes on, Maeve makes a heartbreaking decision regarding her mom, and Adam (Connor Swindells) had a declaration for Eric (Ncuti Gatwa). One of the greatest things about Sex Education is its unflinching forays into topics often ignored on other “high school” series, which is why season three can’t come soon enough. Here’s everything we know so far.

Netflix

It’s happening. Netflix just announced with a lofty monologue from Principle Groff (Alistair Petrie).

Not a lot is revealed in the one-minute clip, but it does look like we’ll be delving further into the relationship between “cherubs” Adam and Eric. Who else can’t wait?

I’m guessing we’ll have to wait until January 2021. It stands to reason that since seasons one and two launched almost exactly one year apart in January, season three will continue the trend. At least a couple of members of the cast have other projects going on at the moment. Anderson will be taking on the role of Margaret Thatcher in The Crown season four. Emma Mackey, on the other hand, will be interrogated by Kenneth Branagh in Death on the Nile.

Fans are freaking out. Let’s just say, the folks on Twitter approve.

Unfortunately, that’s literally all we can say with confidence for now. Make sure to check back here for updates.

Jennifer Lopez Was Too Busy Looking Iconic at an Oscars After-Party to Worry About Her Snub

I’m sure Lopez had a blast at whatever after-party she chose to hit up. Here’s hoping she had a kiki with the other MVPs of awards season (in my eyes): Laura Dern, Florence Pugh, and Bong Joon-ho. You know they all wanted Lopez to get nominated for Hustlers.

Let’s take a moment to reflect on one of Lopez’s captions from last night: “Dance the night away, live your life and stay young on the floor.” She quoted her own lyrics, people. I truly cannot stress that enough. The power that she has.

J.Lo also graced our feeds with a full-body moment on her Instagram Stories:

Instagram/@jlo

Of course, Jennifer Lopez’s snub is not the Oscars’s only notable misstep. The Academy conveniently forgot that female directors are a thing and that the actors in Parasite probably contributed to its raging success. At this point, the Oscars’s only saving grace is all of Bong Joon-ho’s wins, Janelle Monae, and Brad Pitt’s tongue. Otherwise, they were a Jennifer-Lopez-less disappointment.

Here’s hoping next year we see a more diverse batch of nominees and maybe even a retroactive Oscar nom for J.Lo. What? It could happen! I’m putting it in the universe.

Miss Americana’s Director Says Her Female Crew Wasn’t Taken Seriously While Filming Taylor Swift

LW: I thought that was so moving and brilliant, and I loved Taylor’s response to her, too. I thought what Nikki Glaser was saying made so much sense. She said, “This is Psych 101; I was projecting because I was struggling with an eating disorder at the time.” I thought that was a really brave and incredible thing to say. That made me think about if there’s ever been a time where I’ve made fun of someone, I was probably projecting my own insecurities on them as well, you know? We did notice when we were looking at that archival material that a lot of that stuff was coming from other women.

God, I almost tear up like thinking about some of the notes I’ve gotten from teenagers about how they look in the mirror and they hate their body and they hate the way they look. But now that they’ve seen that Taylor has struggled with some of these same things too, and she’s gotten through it and she’s stronger and happier as a result, and that inspires them to keep going. It’s just so moving.

What was the most unexpected thing about filming Taylor?

LW: The contrast between the extraordinary elements of her life and the ordinary elements. [There are] the very big and massive, spectacular, glittery times, but then these very mundane, normal moments. I really love the scene where she’s eating a burrito. I know people have really responded to this scene, and I think it’s because it’s just her putting a chip in a burrito for crunch. There’s something so great about when you get to a point when you’re filming someone and they can relax enough to eat lunch and shoot the shit with their friends in front of you.

When you can film the boring stuff and you have that comfort level with someone, then you know you have access. You know, at that point. It’s weird, but that was like a breakthrough moment for me because it feels like the camera isn’t there.

When did that moment come? How long had you been filming her before you felt like you broke through to that point?

LW: At least a few months. But I will say that the first interview we did was the first interview she’d done in three years, and we did that audio-only. I think that was the moment when we really got to know each other and when I really started to see what the story of the film was, that first audio-only interview. It was just me and her, in a room for hours with a recorder.

Did any of that audio make it into the film?

LW: Oh yeah. When she talks about the sexual assault trial, that’s from the audio interview.

Did Swift see the film at different points in the editing process, or did she not see it until it was finished?

LW: I wanted her to see it before it was finished because there’s stuff in here—like her talking about an eating disorder—that I think is really important for her to be comfortable with that kind of stuff going out into the world. It was great because when we showed her the first cut, she loved it immediately. She was never like, ‘No, I don’t want to go there.’ There was no off-limits area other than anything that would compromise her security.

Taylor’s feedback was great. It wasn’t like, ‘Oh no, we can’t do this.’ It was feedback from another storyteller. She’s such an extraordinary storyteller. So it made sense to me.

Netflix

Before I let you go, I have to ask: When InStyle asked you about a potential engagement ring you said, “I’ll have to watch the scene again.” Did you watch the scene again?

LW: I was confused by what that person was talking about. They said it’s the scene in the car where she was talking about her eating disorder, that there were flash frames of a ring. And I was like, I don’t remember that. There was definitely nothing like that there. I know that people on the internet are freaking out about this later scene where she’s wearing a ring. I don’t know anything about…I think she just wears a lot of rings. I think people are overreacting to it a little bit. As far as I could see she’s constantly just wearing lots of rings! [Laughs]

Jane Fonda Wanted Gray Hair to ‘Surprise Everyone’ at the Oscars

The Oscars 2020 brought many amazing fashion and beauty moments—but one of the best came at the very end of the night as Jane Fonda walked onto the stage to present the award for Best Picture to Parasite in a dress she recycled from 2014 and striking short, gray hair.

Fonda always looks phenomenal but this may have been one of her best looks yet—and her hair color was a very conscious choice. Her colorist Jack Martin shared some of the thinking behind the decision in a lovely Instagram post.

“I had the honor and the pleasure to transform the legendary actress @janefonda hair specially for the 2020 Oscar. Spending 7 hours with this amazing Hollywood star and witnessing her energy, beauty, strength and femininity was so inspiring,” he wrote. “For straight 7 hours while I was working on her hair she was writing chapters in her due soon book, and memorizing her lines in the famous tv show Frankie and grace [sic] that she is shooting the 7th season now, answering emails and reading her newspapers plus communicating with me and her team with the sweetest, humblest soul, she made me feel ashamed to complain of being tired.”

For a woman who’s been making both political and sartorial statements for the entirety of her career, it’s powerful to see her embracing the beauty of gray hair—especially during a time when so many women are pushing back against the idea that going gray means “giving up.” According to Martin, her decision to color her hair was purely for fun, plain and simple.

“Her goal color was a silver icy blonde to surprise everyone at the 2020 Oscars,” Martin continued, before sharing the formula he used in case you’d like your own colorist to give this a go. “Jane was extremely happy for getting her dream hair that took her a while to find a colorist that can do it perfectly in a very painless process.”

Naturally, Jane Fonda’s new look had a lot of fans on social media too.

Cheers to an 82-year-old icon who continues to live life on her own terms.

19 Best ‘Ugly’ Shoes of 2020, From Dad Sneakers to Chunky Loafers

You know when a dog’s so ugly it’s cute? It’s cross-eyed, scraggly, and has a goofy sounding bark—but those unfavorable qualities somehow win you over, meshing into an adorable little package in the end. I’ve always admired people whose closets work like that. They’re so skilled at putting together offbeat outfits that are so wrong, they’re right. Embracing fashion faux pas can make a look ironically stylish, and a low-risk way to get it done is to reach for notoriously “ugly” shoes.

Reworking blacklisted styles is a favorite trick among the fashion set since the choice adds an unexpected twist and says you’re a rule-breaker and an individual—which is essential to having personal style. There’s something about knowing an item is off-limits and wearing it anyway that will never not be cool—so get inspired by five street style looks that will convince you to give dad sneakers, clunky flip flops and chunky loafers a second thought.
