Amanda commented on the post, What’s the worst hairstyle/cut you’ve ever had? 1 week, 3 days ago

When I was younger, I had bleach-blond streaks in my black hair. It wasn’t cute, but I loved it!

I’ve also had some near-misses where I asked for layers in my curly hair and the stylist took out a razor. Eeek!

It’s not makeup so much as skincare, but definitive research on charcoal would be greatly appreciated. Skincare companies say it draws out impurities, but research suggests it doesn’t actually do much.

And in […]

Amanda commented on the post, What are your favorite methods for reviving old products? 2 weeks, 1 day ago

OPI’s Nail Polish Thinner helps me stretch out somewhat-pricey topcoats like the CND Vinylux once it gets gloopy. It’s great because a few drops go a really long way. It doesn’t work as well on actual coloured […]

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets are amazing. For an even cheaper option, the Revlon Matte Balms are fab, too.

Amanda commented on the post, Do you think you’ll ever fall out of love with makeup? 2 weeks, 3 days ago

I’ve been intrigued by beauty stuff since I was little, so I don’t think so! I see myself being less interested in a full-face of makeup and focusing even more on skincare as I get older, but I won’t lose interest altogether.

Amanda commented on the post, What product do you regret not buying? 2 weeks, 6 days ago

MAC Stereo Rose, although I’m sure they’ll repromote soon! I also regret not buying about 4 backups of OPI Teenage Dream. It’s my all-time favourite glitter, and I miss it badly!

Amanda commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Cream Highlighters 3 weeks, 4 days ago

I find some cream and liquid highlighters can sometimes blend out a little patchy. I had that problem with Benefit’s Moon Beam (more liquid) and Girl Meets Pearl (more cream/gel); when I tried to blend them in, […]

Amanda commented on the post, What beauty brand would you love to takeover for a week? 3 weeks, 5 days ago

Nars! I love so much of their stuff, I’d love to help create new blush shades in their fabulous formula. (Also, I’d like to encourage them to make their eyeshadow formula more consistent! Haha.)

I have Frat Boy, but never even considered Cabana Boy. Hm!

Amanda commented on the post, What item do you have the most backups of? 3 weeks, 6 days ago

I try to limit myself to one backup of each product I like. At one point I had two backups of Nars Radiant Creamy Concealers because my shade is often sold out in my area. Right now, though, I think I have two […]

Agreed, Rikki. I feel like they’re hyping this up way too much.

Amanda commented on the post, How do you deal with oil/shine throughout the day? 1 month, 1 week ago

Argh, oil is such a problem for me. If it’s especially hot or I really need my makeup to last, I do a setting spray sandwich – spray before foundation, and then again once my makeup is done. I like Urban Decay’s […]

Eh, maybe I’m completely alone on this one, but I am really getting tired of the Rihanna collabs. I like her, and RiRi Woo is one of my all-time favourite lipsticks, but I feel like it’s time to bring in someone else.
