Amanda commented on the post, Do you finish beauty products regularly? 1 day, 22 hours ago

I don’t finish things regularly at all, and yet, I keep purchasing things. It’s terrible! I finish skincare – face and body – and haircare more regularly than, say, blush and foundation and such. I chuck mascaras […]

Well, it’s about darn time. I’ve been regretting not snapping one up since the sold out in December!

Amanda posted a look to Naturally Glam 3 days, 11 hours ago

My everyday makeup style is very soft and natural, so I wanted to keep that theme but give it some oomph for a night out with friends. This is the result!

Products Used:
- Hourglass Immaculate Foundation in ‘Chestnut’
- Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in ‘Amande’
- CoverGirl Queen Collection Bronzer in 03 ‘Ebony’
- Rimmel Stay Matte Powder

This is such a neat idea, it’s a real shame that the formula wasn’t all that great. Of all the shades options, this combo would be the one I was interested in. But given your reviews of it, I’m going to have to […]

Amanda commented on the post, How necessary is concealer? 6 days, 9 hours ago

I love/need it for under my eyes, and 9 times out of 10 I’ll actually end up just dotting it on the spots on my face I want to hide instead of foundation. I prefer it that way, so my natural skin shines through.

Amanda commented on the post, How willing are you to try new beauty products? 1 week ago

It kind of depends what the product I’d be trying is, exactly. I’m wary of lip balms because a lot of them make my lips flake and peel like crazy. I will, however, try just about anything else! I try to be careful […]

Amanda commented on the post, Do you find salespeople at the beauty counter helpful? 1 week, 2 days ago

It depends. I find that places where the BAs are on commission, they can be a little pushy and I don’t like that at all. When I worked at a counter, that was not my selling style – I liked to show how much I […]

Amanda commented on the post, MAC Playland Lipglasses Reviews, Photos, Swatches 1 week, 2 days ago

I love the array of colours – so bright and pretty for spring/summer. They remind me of popsicles! The uneven application is disappointing though, as is the fact that the creamier colours set into lip lines. I’ll […]

I haven’t tried any Makeup Geek; despite its affordability, I just haven’t gotten around to placing an order. I’m incredibly tempted by their pan shadow in Corrupt – it’s supposed to be the blackest black ever and all that.

Amanda commented on the post, Do you wear lip balm underneath lipgloss or lipstick? 1 week, 6 days ago

If it’s a very drying formula, like MAC mattes or retro mattes (even satins, come to think of it), then yes. If it’s a moisturizing formula, like the Revlon Lip Butters or Nars Sheer Lipsticks, then I don’t find it necessary.

These look neat, and there’s a wide variety of shades which is cool. It’s no wonder MAC is finally getting on the jumbo lip pencil bandwagon. I probably won’t pick one up though; for whatever reason, these just […]

Amanda commented on the post, Are you an impulsive beauty buyer? 2 weeks, 4 days ago

At high-end retailers, almost never. I like to do research before I buy, especially if that product is going to cost me $30+. I can’t tell you the number of times bad reviews have convinced me not to pick up a […]

Amanda commented on the post, How does your weekend makeup differ from your weekday makeup? 3 weeks, 5 days ago

To leave myself enough time to do school work, I usually only go out one day of the weekend (if that). If I’m going out somewhere special, I’ll wear a full face of makeup – meaning more makeup than I’d normally […]

Amanda commented on the post, Hit List: Most Long-Wearing Nail Polish 3 weeks, 6 days ago

Without delving into the realm of gel polish, for me, it’s Sephora Formula X in Curiosity. An amazing red that lasts a week with only minor tip wear! I get tired of the colour before it starts to look bad. xD
