Deanna commented on the post, Have you thought about a career in the beauty industry? 9 months, 3 weeks ago

I’m *always* thinking about this! I’m not sure I’d be much of a makeup artist though, I prefer to be behind the scenes. I would also rather work for a smaller company/brand than a large conglomerate.

Oooh, lucky you! :) I asked at two city counters so they should have been well informed.

Chanel Charming palette, Chanel Charming palette and Chanel Charming palette. Apparently it has been delayed in OZ, although most of the counter staff I asked about it looked a little confused and hesitated before […]

Definitely! US trips are beauty heaven, not only are there brands we can’t get here in Australia but everything is roughly half price (depending on exchange rate). If I went to Europe I’d definitely be seeking out […]

Deanna commented on the post, What are your favorite kinds of holiday palettes/sets/offerings? 11 months, 2 weeks ago

Try-me and mini kits are great! I rarely finish a colour product so I prefer smaller sizes. I also like the pretty packaging that so often accompanies holiday collections. I’m a sucker for a […]

Agreed. TOBB was the first place that properly described that your skin could be in several states at once (dry/flaking, oily, acne-covered and sensitive) and how to deal with it properly.

If you know lots about makeup and applying makeup then I don’t think Rae Morris’ books are must-haves. I managed to find a couple of her books for $10 at Aldi so I grabbed them. Ultimate Guide is nice to have but […]

Definitely Paula Begoun’s The Original Beauty Bible, particularly her debunking of beauty myths and skin care advice. Also her book Don’t Go To The Cosmetics Counter… (pre-website) was great. There were products […]

Deanna commented on the post, What has been your best beauty purchase in the last three months? 11 months, 2 weeks ago

The blush is definitely worth it! I am *almost* happy to pay a stupid amount because it is so good. I’m not convinced Chanel mascaras and lipsticks are worth it unless it is an amazing colour and there isn’t a […]

Le Blush Creme de Chanel in Presage. These blushes are amazing! I loved it so much I bought Inspiration as well. Dior Nude Tan Healthy Glow Enhancing Powder comes a close second.

Oooh, I’m quite excited about a couple of these! Particularly the eye bags. Drat :( Back in Australia now so they will cost double the US price. Is it wrong that I am hoping the quality is bad (like so many MAC […]

Urban Decay, No.7, Boots, Suqqu. Particularly the first two, I really wish I could try out Urban Decay products before buying them on BeautyBay.

Deanna commented on the post, What was the first beauty product you bought and truly loved? 11 months, 3 weeks ago

Australis Wild Wine lipstick! Haha, my friend and I wore it all the time. So 90′s.

Oooh, Layin’ Low looks promising. Constructivist looks SO different on me (NW15/20ish)!I love paint pots but I never get through them and I’m pretty sure I have several that are past their “cream product use by […]

Yeh, they did. Prices are pretty good now and when they have a sale you can get good bargains. Nail polish is still not cheap (where cheap is under $10). Some other brands are reducing their prices and […]

Hi Soren,
Agreed, makeup in Australia is ridiculously marked up. When I am in the US or have friends going I go a little nuts at Sephora and Nordstrom. Last Christmas the bf bought back a small case almost full! […]

For anyone in Australia (who can’t get their hands on it cheaper in the US) Dior at Myer has them hidden away, they don’t have testers but they can be purchased. I bought mine yesterday… YAY!!

This had better make its way to Australia! No doubt it will be AUD100 but it is so pretty! I’ve been waiting for your swatches Christine to see if it is as amazing as I’d hoped. It is! Yay!! *Swoon*

Looks really different on the eyelid to the swatch, interesting. You have done an amazing job Christine! Thank you for the swatches! if only we could get our hands on them in OZ. Sleep well, you deserve it :)
