I’m extremely nearsighted (my prescription is over -6 in both eyes), and my solution is generally to lean in as close to the bathroom mirror as humanly possible. The only time I ever have issues is when I’m doing […]

Thea commented on the post, 10 Gorgeous Red Lipsticks & Lipglosses for Valentine’s Day 9 months, 3 weeks ago

It took me ages to figure out how to make red lipstick work for me, but I have a couple of favorites now: NARS Autumn Leaves, and Bite Beauty Apricot. Orangey-reds all the way for me.

Thea commented on the post, What’s your “my-lips-but-better” shade? 1 year ago

Definitely L’Oreal Color Caresse stain gloss in Eternally Nude. It’s just like turning the volume up a little bit — my lips are a little more saturated and defined.

Thea commented on the post, What has been your best beauty purchase in the last three months? 1 year, 1 month ago

Stila’s In the Light palette. It’s my third out of that group of palettes (the one I don’t have is In the Moment, the one with all the purples), and I love all of them. The shadows are easy to work with and the […]

Thea commented on the post, 5 Shades of Stormy Gray 1 year, 2 months ago

I’m liking Cargo’s single eyeshadow in Flint right now; it’s a matte medium grey with just a hint of brown in it, and it’s actually in that very narrow (for me) window where I can use it in the crease OR use it as […]

Thea commented on the post, Do you prefer limited edition or permanent products? 1 year, 2 months ago

When it comes to the actual products, I don’t have a preference — there are things that I love that are permanent and things that I love that are limited edition, and most brands that I’ll buy in the first place […]

Thea commented on the post, How to Contour & Highlight with Cream Foundation 1 year, 3 months ago

Ooh, this is super useful. I’ll be trying it with the L’Oreal TrueMatch cream foundation I already own (and even already have highlight/contour shades in), but I do want to at least check out my base shade in the […]

Thea commented on the post, 5 Shades of Juicy Watermelon 1 year, 3 months ago

I like these 5-item color spotlights, but I’m always disappointed when one of them turns out to be almost entirely super-high-end stuff, so I’ll add one of my own that’s nice and drugstore cheap: the new Almay […]

Damn, every last one of those has signs of that awful (at least on me) magenta shade that all “custom” lipcolors inevitably turn. (Seriously, EVERY SINGLE PRODUCT that is supposed to do anything like that turns […]

Ooh, are those the LE Aqua Creams I see in that look? I want to compare the pale green with the pale green from the LE Maybelline Color Tattoos, may have to swatch the latter and then head to Sephora sometime soon.

Thea reviewed Theodora 1 year, 6 months ago

Right up my alley and yet nowhere near the level of love I’d normally have for something that’s right up my alley. I guess part of it is the fact that I’d expect a palette that’s sop obviously ME to be a better source of looks that I can make with just the one palette, and for my taste in shadow looks, it’s not. But I love most of the contents…[Read more]

Thea reviewed Glinda 1 year, 6 months ago

More wearable (for me) than I expected it to be, although I’m not sure I could get a look I’d actually wear out of this palette alone. South is a must-have if you like taupe, Tornado is a must-have even if you’re not a collector of purples, and if you want some serious metallic sparkle, the super-glittery duo Oz just needs a little glitter-glue…[Read more]

Thea reviewed Basics Eyeshadow Palette 1 year, 6 months ago

I love both neutrals and mattes, even when I don’t necessarily NEED to wear subtle neutral makeup, and this palette is full of good stuff. The progression from Venus (which I often use as a brow-bone shade even if I’m not wearing anything else from this palette) to Walk of Shame to Naked2 is fantastic — I would buy all three of those shades as…[Read more]
