Amanda commented on the post, Most Used Makeup Palette 1 hour, 53 minutes ago

Definitely Urban Decay Naked 1. If I don’t know what to wear, that’s my default because I can easily create something pretty and flattering with it.

Amanda commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Contour Palettes 1 week, 2 days ago

I really wish that there were contour palettes for darker skin readily available. Anastasia has them through their website, but the shipping is exorbitant. I’d like to see more at the drugstore though!

Very tempted by Hazelnut! Thanks for the roundup Christine :)

This shade and finish are lovely, and I’m glad it performed well! However, I feel like it’s a pretty dupable at the drugstore or in mid-range brands, so I think I’m going to pass on this’un.

Amanda commented on the post, What beauty splurge do you regret? 2 weeks, 1 day ago

Marc Jacobs Lolita Palette. It’s beautiful and the formula is lovely, but the shades all show up quite similar on my skin, so I don’t find myself reaching for it all that often.

How often do you wash your makeup brushes? Not often enough, that’s for sure. It’s my least favourite beauty task so I tend to put it off until […]

Amanda commented on the post, What are your best tips for creating the perfect smoky eye? 3 weeks, 3 days ago

As a lot of people have said, blending. Also, I find that a transition colour is a step that people tend to skip, but it really does make a big difference, especially if you apply it before applying any other colours!

Haul: Not much this week! I got a Revlon Kissable Balm Stain in Honey – I never thought the colour could work for me, but it does and I love it! I also ordered some Anastasia Liquid Lipsticks – American Doll, […]

Amanda commented on the post, What’s your biggest skin concern? 3 weeks, 6 days ago

Unevenness/dullness/dark spots. I lump them all together because a brightening serum tends to address all three of those issues. I’m using the Caudalie one at the moment!

Amanda commented on the post, MAC Pencilled In Collection for Spring 2015 3 weeks, 6 days ago

I’m not all that excited about this collection? A Ruby Woo pencil and gloss is pretty cool, but Cherry is working pretty well for me with Ruby Woo, so I’m probably going to pass. I like that they used a Black […]

I find it quite silly to have a shade called “medium” without a light or a deep. It’s remarkably difficult for me to find cool-toned contour products and I would love Kevyn Aucoin to come out with one, even if it […]

Ugh, they’re so beautiful! They had so much potential, and I was so excited when they were announced. I’m glad I waited on reviews though because grades in the C range for such a pricey palette is just unacceptable!

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb. It smells so nice!

I agree! I find UDPP somehow more liquid-y after the repackaging, whereas it was thicker before? And it certainly worked better keeping my shadow from creasing before it was repackaged. If you haven’t already, try […]
