I’m so relieved to hear I’m not the only one who can’t do it! I have one that came with a palette and I just can’t make it move.

Dior strikes again. Everything they do is so pretty in the pan, and so weak in practice…

You can get away with much bolder looks with glasses. There have been several times when I’ve done my eyes and thought, “this is too much! I’m going to look crazy!” and then I put my glasses on, and you can hardly see it.

I also take advantage of Halloween and other costumey opportunities to play with looks that are way outside my comfort zone and see which ones can be adapted for regular wear.

If you happen to have less than perfect vision, try doing bolder looks on days when you’re wearing your glasses. You get used to seeing the brighter colors on your own face, and the frames lessen the impact

How are there still people in the world who think that clicky pen lip gloss applicators are a good idea? They’re the worst! You have to click it for about twenty minutes to get it started before any product […]

I default to Stila Kitten. A lot.

It’s really pretty, but I wish they’d called it something else. A cream blush named “Sticky” just sounds unpleasant, even if it isn’t actually sticky.

AAAH, The lipstick packaging! I need Steam Heat!

…and maybe the Golden Rinse bronzer…

I had a pretty good haul.. The Laura Mercier artist palette, Too Faced Melted in Jelly, Bite Beauty Butter Cream in Rosewood and Clinique Rose Pop (and the Rouge birthday gift)

They already arrived last night. […]

That is astonishingly affordable for MUFE… I can’t wait to see how these perform!

I’m glad Urban Decay is embracing color again. These are so much more exciting than the Naked glosses

Yep. Still want all of them (especially Debutante and Jelly). Thank goodness for the upcoming VIB sale

Wow, Berry Strudel is a neat color! It actually looks like it might be more wearable than a lot of similar purples.

(Also FYI, all three colors are currently labeled “Apple Crisp” in the text portion of the review!)

I love the colors! Everything is so fresh and pretty!

I really ought to have some sort of spreadsheet or filing system, but I’m too lazy to start one. I do have a facebook photo album called “nail polish colors I need to stop buying” from a time I took photos of […]

I was worried about the sheer quantity of new releases MAC was springing on us this month, but the quality is low enough that it isn’t disastrous for my bank account at all.

I do quite like Call the Hairdresser […]

Oh man, if these review well, I’m going to need a whole bunch of them! Jelly is stunning, and Macaron and Tu-tu (although I’m not really seeing a difference between Tu-tu and Peony…) and Dream House and […]

Packaging first. If the packaging doesn’t catch my eye, I probably won’t bother even looking to see what kind of colors are included unless something is getting rave reviews. If the packaging is amazing, I’ll […]

I’m the opposite: Online I beeline right for the specific product I’m looking for, but in the stores I want to get my hands on everything. my hands are always completely covered with swatches by the time I’m ready to leave.
