SKIN DETOX

Charcoal is an all natural detoxifier that deep-cleans skin and draws out toxins. It is the star ingredient in two new products from MAC — Mineralize Charged Water Charcoal Spray ($26) and Mineralize Reset & Revive Charcoal Mask ($31). Combine the new products with the existing Mineralize Volcanic Ash Exfoliator ($31) for a detox system that will clarify skin and give it a glow from within. Available now at MAC stores and online at maccosmetics.com.

‘12 Strong’ infuses heart into war

If you’re doing your job right in the U.S. Special Forces, it likely means no one will ever know. It’s a tough, elite and highly classified position, where acts of incredible heroism never get the ticker tape parade, and that’s kind of the point.

Ambassador Samantha Power, as evidenced in the new documentary “The Final Year,” about foreign policy during President Obama’s last year in office. Power decided that it would...

‘Den of Thieves’ kicks off bad-movie season in style

So this is how it works: In the fall, movies are intended to be good and usually are. In the summer, movies are intended to be bad but profitable, and they’re usually both.

In light of a résumé skewed toward male-dominated thrillers, Scottish director Paul McGuigan might seem an unlikely choice to guide a fading-siren weepie from page to screen. Yet “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool,” a real-life romance adapted from the 1986 memoir by Peter Turner, reveals an unexpected fontanel of sentiment...
