Kristen commented on the post, Do you have a dedicated space for your makeup? 6 months, 3 weeks ago

I have a corner in one of our guest rooms that houses a very small vanity and a table. Lately, my meager collection has been expanding, so I’m going to need to stake out larger territory in our house soon!

Kristen commented on the post, What type of lipstick finishes work best on you? 6 months, 3 weeks ago

I always like a nice cream finish. Occasionally I’ll opt for matte. I tend to stay away from glosses because I don’t like the texture. Even the ones that aren’t really sticky are usually a bit too sticky for my tastes.

Kristen commented on the post, Urban Decay Eyeshadow Duos for Spring 2014 6 months, 3 weeks ago

Eh. I’ll pass. I prefer duos, trios, palettes, etc. to have some kind of divider between shades. I tend to avoid ones that don’t. It makes me feel safer. I guess I just worry that the shadows are going to end up […]

This is gorgeous. I had thought Berry Pop was the one for me, but after seeing both of these swatched, I’m fully in Plum Pop camp. So glad I waited, especially since they are both so similar. I need this shade!

While I have found a couple that work for me, I agree with many of you who have mentioned the lack of cool-toned palettes. As a cooler-toned person, I would love to see more options in that range. That said, I do […]

I purchased Diamond in the Rough about a month ago, and I fell in love, so you know I had to have more from this line. Most nail polish is BOGO 1/2 off this week at Riteaid (at least in the US. I’m not sure about […]

Will do, Christine. I already know I’m going to love that purple, despite the fallout/fading issues. I’m such a sucker for purples. :)

This blush looks so gorgeous on you! I thought these blushes were adorable when I saw the preview, but after reading your review, I’ve decided they are a must-have. I hope the others turn out to be just as good!

Kristen commented on the post, Kat Von D Esperanza Eyeshadow Palette Review, Photos, Swatches 6 months, 4 weeks ago

I have been so excited for this palette. I ordered it from Sephora about a week ago, and it just arrived yesterday. I haven’t had much time to experiment with it, but I do think the colors are gorgeous and so […]

So disappointing! The colors look so pretty in the pan. I guess in a way I’m relieved though — I do not need to spend $60 on another eyeshadow palette, especially one that’s sub-par.

Very pretty shades, but I definitely would not be able to pull them off with my ragged lips. Side note: Love those earrings!

Oh, my! Now I have another to add to my list. Rue has my name written all over it. So pretty!

Urban Decay Naked 2 and Shattered Face Case. And, though it’s technically not a palette, lately I cannot put down Bare Minerals Ready 2.0 in The Inspiration.

Oh, man! I just picked up Normani, and now I’m wishing I would’ve picked up Brigette and Odette, too! Gorgeous shades, especially for spring. I might need to place another order soon. Christine, you are wonderful, […]
