I tried this in person at the store and the consistency wasn’t as smooth as I was hoping. The brand’s launch was so hyped, I was expecting something spectacular.

If only the bag was simply vivid purple and not… That.

This look beautiful. I won’t be surprised if it is a popular release.

Any good dupe for J242? Hakuhodo rejected my credit card because it’s from an unsupported country…

It seems like a nice mix of colours. The hype around this is unbelievable, and I mostly don’t trust products that have been hyped up like that. The pigmentation is just okay, but the colours are nice.

That’s good advice. I saw similar tips in a Lisa Eldridge video and really like applying foundation closer to just the centre of my face, then spot concealing if required. Basically, applying everything in its […]

Looks like a bad version of Wet n Wild’s Cherry Bomb, which is pretty amazing, especially for that price point.
It’s unfortunate that this line seemed promising and then everything went downhill.

Haha, yes! So am I. I’m always looking for a good deal on a brush.
I’m limiting myself to a hundred dollars and I need a blush brush, so I’m thinking these two and J5543. What do you think? I want a soft blush […]

Haha, all these new releases are looking good. I’ve read similar reviews which is why I’m excited to try it.
Are those the Barney’s exclusive ones?

I use a stippling brush for foundation so I apply as little as possible, and then make sure I tap excess powder off the pouf before using that, then a final brush off using a clean powder brush.

Plain water […]

Light-medium skintone with warm undertones.
Lipgloss: Benefit. I wish they’d just make more colours.
Eyeliner: I wear liquid only and Marc Jacobs is the king of that. I wish he’d make more shades too!
Blush: […]

Thank you so much for doing these pictures because it’s so much easier to compare and see them all in one place.
I want five…

It’s funny you reviewed the 242 because I was about to purchase it. I wanted something similar to an Elizabeth Arden brush I have that is too scratchy for the eyes and this seemed perfect for the inner or outer […]

I was thinking of splurging on the new Nars lipsticks and YSL’s new Fusion Ink foundation since I have oily skin. Would those be good?

88 dollars… ? That’s too much for just two and more than Tom Ford.

There’s a Nordstrom Rack in Manhattan, no Kohl’s or Ulta, at least according to Google. Fingers crossed!

I want Taupe so badly. It’s perfect. I’ll try and get the Surratt dupe for contouring instead, if this is unavailable which I’m already assuming because I don’t have “home” advantage.

Profile picture of Ammara

I hope so. I’m just not sure where to buy it from in Manhattan. Maybe Nordstrom? I think they have a store there.
