Happy news for the Glossier-curious as well as devotées planning to visit for TIFF 2017: you'll be able to get handsy with Milky Jelly, Wowder and every shade of Cloud Paint in person. Glossier's first Toronto Pop-Up will open on September 8th, downtown. At the moment the brand has only one storefront, in New York City. If you are heading this way for a bit of celeb-spotting and related endeavours, put the following in your calendar too:And get info on the brand's own Toronto events here.
EOS Crystal Lip Balm is a big debut for the cult-favourite brand right this minute, but it's not the only news: EOS has changed two of its existing, popular sphere formulas and revamped its pegboard packaging too. As well, during a recent NYC visit, I snagged some interview time with Mike Wong, the company's executive VP of research and development.
I wasn't surprised when the results of a new Good Housekeeping Institute study ranked Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream ahead of 10 fancy moisturizers. Almost a decade ago, I gave my sister-in-law Pam a jar of this stuff to try on her dry skin, and she loved it. Over the years I've had her test a variety of others, some much more expensive, and still Micro-Sculpting Cream is her favourite. But how exactly did GH judge the formula? How many women participated?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
