The Myth of Macho: Alan Arkin – CraveOnline


REVIEW | Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Cathedral

Girl & Vanity

Ever since I’ve been interested in makeup, finding a perfect nude, MLBB shade has been next to impossible. Sure, I’ve come across a few that’s been acceptable, but I could never just settle on those shades and had to keep looking. Then came along the cult favourite Kat Von D Studded Lipstick in Cathedral. The swatches I saw online looked absolutely divine, and I knew that this could potentially be it; the be-all and end-all of my nude lipstick collection. One fateful day it was finally restocked after months and months of waiting, and here we are.

Raffles, Meres and Anthony Valentine


Anthony Valentine was in every way the ideal actor to play Raffles. As Toby Meres in Callan he had demonstrated his uncanny ability to combine enormous charm with a sinister and sadistic edge. Meres’ job sometimes involves killing people, and for Meres that is more of a bonus than a downside. Raffles has a very much more light-hearted tone than Callan and Raffles as a character is much less dark than Toby Meres but that very slight hint of sadism is still there and it’s one of the things that makes this an intriguing and unusual series. On the whole the series is witty and done with a very light touch but it has its occasional darker moments. Raffles is an anti-hero, even if he’s a very charming anti-hero.
