@tsavorite @niki172 You're both correct! 🙂 The virus can cross species where there's the possibility of mutation AND every time the virus replicates, there's room for slight, accidental variations in the process so the more we do to reduce spread and chances for the virus to mutate, the more we decrease risk of new strains. Although eradicating any disease entirely is a very tall order and as noted, not realistic, at least at this point ;_; This is what we know as factual. We still do not know how the virus originated or how the new strains came about. One current hypothesis for the new strains is more chronic human cases allowed for the virus to reproduce more in their bodies and thereby, mutate more. From National Geographic [The UK and S. Africa strains]'s origin involves chronically ill patients treated with experimental therapies like convalescent plasma donated by recovered COVID-19 patients. In such lengthy illnesses, the virus has more opportunities to replicate, increasing the odds for mutations. The consistent use of the therapies, meanwhile, may put more pressure on the germ to evolve. “Some of these people who are chronically infected have some quite big shifts in the virus,” says Ravindra Gupta, a virologist at the University of Cambridge. “Some are immune-suppressed. Some of them have had convalescent plasma. Some of them have had [the antiviral] remdesivir.”If this suspected origin story does prove to be the case, it could have implications for treatment, says Muge Cevik, a clinical lecturer in infectious diseases at the University of St. Andrews. Earlier in the pandemic, the best path for helping patients was unclear. That led hospitals to give patients a buffet of therapies, with the hope that some combination might work. But if new-wave medicines like antivirals and antibody therapy contributed to the development of viral variants, it will be “a reminder for all the medical community that we need to use these treatment options carefully.”While mutations edit genetic code, they don’t always lead to outward changes in a germ or organism. That’s why these newfound variants have garnered so much concern. It’s as if the virus entered a dressing room and came out with a new outfit, rather than the normal circumstances where it would only change its hat... Other reputable sources like BBC share this theory about the new strain "incubating" for a long time in a patient, possibly immunosuppressed. But we don't know. Possible for it to have passed to animal and back, I'm guessing there's not much research being done into risks like house pets?

Hey guys, I am currently trying to find THE foundation for me lol. I’ve tried several and can’t seem to find the perfect one. Everything is cakey on me or ends up looking horrible and splotchy after only a few hours. I’ve tried different primers and setting powder. They have just made it worse. my skin is dry for the most part but get oily in the t-zone. I had a horrible reaction to Clinique so my face is still sensitive to products. I am an actress and need to find a foundation that makes me look flawless on camera and in person. anyone have suggestions?

Base color: Orly Fresh StartA moderately streaky mint green. I went hog wild with my second coat, making it super thick, in an attempt to avoid a third coat 😅 It was mostly successful with only a couple of thin spots, which the topper thankfully blurred out. Lovely color, but typical for a cream, especially a pastel one. Topped off with Schitty Ideas by Pampered Polishes, which is sparkly funfetti love 💕 Loaded heavily with silver microglitter, with sprinkles of colored glitter in a wide array of shapes and sizes...I see round, hex, and square, red, pink, yellow, green, blue, purple, and even a few holo bits. It's a party in a bottle 🌈 BTW, If you haven't seen Schitt's Creek, I highly recommend it!

Some comparisons of new Dior lipsticks in different formulas. My favorite is Rouge En Diable matte, very comfy and great pigment (with unfortunate number of 666 😳). Least fav is 773 velvet. More patchy. Not loving their velvet formula from these shades at least. Prefer Chanel. Satins are comfy as always. In diff lighting top to bottom: 869 Sophisticated Satin, 959 Charnelle Satin, 666 Rouge En Diable Matte, 760 Favorite Velvet, 773 Bonheur Velvet. @itsfi @blackkitty2014

I got two of the 22 piece sample bags in. I think I got almost everything as pictured except some foil samples that were happily substituted with mini perfumes. One bag had Clinique happy and the other had Versace. Spoiler
