Den außergewöhnlichen Kajalstift Drama Queen Kajal von Misslyn gibt es derzeit in den Farben Gold (Gilding Myself), Blau (Never-Tiring), Braun (Dress Up) und Schwarz (Dance All Night). Das Besondere an ihm sind seine sanfte und doch farbintensive Textur und ein sich aus seiner Form ergebender Vorteil: Laut Herstellerangabe ist er selbstspitzend, da er sich im Gebrauch gleichmäßig abnutzt. Die konische Gestaltung des Stiftes ist zudem hervorragend geeignet, um sowohl gerade Linien zu ziehen als auch raffiniert verwischte Ausschattierungen im Augenbereich vorzunehmen. Damit ist er auch für den effektvollen Smokey-Eyes-Look ein ideales Make-up-Utensil.Der Drama Queen Kajal von Misslyn steht in der Tradition einer Jahrtausende alten Schminkkultur. Wer kennt zum Beispiel nicht das beeindruckende Augen-Make-up der ägyptischen Schönheit Nofretete? In unseren modernen Zeiten mit ihren medizinischen Kenntnissen wird Kajal allerdings auf eine andere Art aufgetragen: entlang des Wimpernkranzes (je nach Augenform mit dem Misslyn Drama Queen Kajal durchgehend oder von der Lidmitte aus eine Linie ziehen), aber niemals in unmittelbarer Nähe des oberen und unteren Tränenpünktchens und schon gar nicht auf ihnen. Auch wenn Werbefotos Modelle mit vollständig umrandeten Augen zeigen: Bitte diese Schminktechnik nicht nachmachen, sondern den dekorativen Strich mit dem Kajalstift in genügend großem Abstand zu diesen Tränenpünktchen setzen. Apropos Pünktchen: Für das Zeichnen eines Lidstrichs am Oberlid empfehlen viele Kosmetikerinnen die Punkt-zu-Punkt-Methode: Zunächst mit dem Kajalstift einzelne Pünktchen setzen, dann diese einfach miteinander verbinden.

Tales of a Drama Queen: Lee Nichols
The Drama of Glass, by Kate Field, was published in 1895 and attempts to tell a sweeping story about the past, present, and future of glass while at the same time advertising it´s publisher, the Libby Glass Company. The prologue begins with speculations of the origns of glass by the Phoenicians and Venetians. It also depicts the beginings of glass in America in 1608. The next section of the book details the evolution of glass from 1850 to 1893, focusing, not suprisingly, on Libby Glass. The third section of the book dramatically departs from the history laid out so far to relate the fairy tale of Cinderella´s glass slippers metaphorically to actress Georgia Cayvan´s journey to create a dress spun out of glass, which was later duplicated by a Spanish princess. The last section returns to the Libby Glass Company and their involvement in the World´s Fair of 1893. This section asks the readers (presumably those who attended the fair themselves) questions about their own experiences to encourage their own reflections on the exhibit. 1. Language: English.

Big Fat Gypsy Weddings:The Dresses the Drama the Secrets Unveiled Jim Nally
A doctor’s religious doubt is shaken by a transplant patient’s eerie knowledge of his organ donor’s most intimate secret.Doctors tend to the needs of their patients, but patients give meaning to the lives of their doctors. So it is for Cullen Brodie, a twice-divorced California nephrologist, and Ennis Willoughby, a troubled cross-dresser whose life is saved by a rare heart-and-kidney transplant. Cullen’s bitter disbelief in the afterlife is tested when Ennis begins to exhibit tastes and characteristics uncannily similar to those of his female organ donor - whose first name Ennis inexplicably knows. When Ennis becomes convinced that the donor’s soul has inhabited him, Cullen sides with Ennis’s psychiatrist, who tells Ennis he has subconsciously confused his emerging transgender personality with the imagined characteristics of his female donor. While his psychiatrist coaxes forth Ennis’s female side, Cullen is summoned to the South Pacific by an old lover for a reckoning of their past. On the island paradise of Rarotonga, he is forced to confront the heartrending truth about a tragedy that destroyed their college romance - a tragedy Cullen blames on religious zealotry.Filled with resentment over what he has learned, Cullen returns to Southern California determined to shatter Ennis’s delusion of ensoulment. But Ennis’s eerie knowledge of his donor’s greatest secret forces Cullen to consider the unimaginable: Is it possible he is witness to a verifiable incident of transmigration, tangible proof of a human soul? Or is he witness instead to the miracle of being transgender? Male and female at once, the glory of one and the glory of the other, both shining - like a parrotfish, another miracle of nature, changing gender apace, beside its glorious, ever-changing hue. 1.
