Plurabelle commented on the post, What product do you regret not buying? 1 month, 2 weeks ago

That was Fenberry from the Berry Collection. They rereleased it for a couple of weeks last Christmas as well (it was my Christmas gift to myself), so keep an eye out on their site – who knows, they might bring it […]

Plurabelle commented on the post, What item do you have the most backups of? 1 month, 3 weeks ago

I have 4-5 backups of my favourite lipsticks, Catrice’s Pink Me Up!, Fox Nox and My Red Card which I first bought more than a year ago. When I was moving to a place where Catrice isn’t easily accessible I decided […]

This, exactly. Marketing is really insidious, because they do psychological research on how to get at your insecurities and make you question your self-worth. Luxury products definitely trade on the “aspirational” […]

I completely agree! It’s appealing to people’s urge for conspicuous consumption – some people would rather buy a $100 item than the exact same thing for $10, because of the perceived (not real) value of the item. […]

Plurabelle commented on the post, What blushes would you recommend to someone new to makeup? 2 months, 1 week ago

Sleek, of course. It’s affordable, excellent quality, and they give you tons of product. I’d recommend the first ones I got from them (when I was new to makeup), especially if they have warm skin tones: Life’s a […]

Plurabelle commented on the post, Are there any makeup “don’ts” that you still do? 2 months, 1 week ago

Wear “night-time” colours – bold lips etc – during the day time. I don’t normally go out at night so when am I going to wear so called “night-time” colours, which I love?

I love black for my eyebrows. My eyebrows are naturally black anyway, so brown looks unnatural on me. I use the Sleek brow kit in Black, which isn’t jet black but a very very dark grey. I’m stunned when I catch my […]

Plurabelle commented on the post, How do you bring out your eye color? 2 months, 2 weeks ago

Most people are talking about eyeshadow, but I actually find that a crimson/blood-red lipstick brings out my eye colour the best, even if I’m not wearing any other makeup. Somehow the red colour on my lips brings […]

Serious question: what makes a woman not “respectable”? What could possibly make any woman unworthy of respect, whatever their life choices and circumstances?

Catrice is my favourite brand for lipsticks. I’ve never found another formula of lipstick that I actually like. They’re so lightweight they feel like a balm, and so pigmented that they look like a perfect (usually […]

I’d wear the bright orange and gold colours together.

Plurabelle commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Twist-Up Jumbo Lip Pencils 4 months, 2 weeks ago

I had the same experience with the Balm Stains- except they turn coral/orange for me – and I’ve seen one review where they mentioned the same thing. It completely defeats the purpose of having multiple shades if […]

Plurabelle commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Twist-Up Jumbo Lip Pencils 4 months, 2 weeks ago

I only tried one – the Revlon Balm Stain in Honey, and I was so disappointed it put me off the all the Jumbo pencils. It feels strange on the lips, changes colour 15 minutes after application, and has a nasty […]

Looks similar to one of my favourites, Sleek’s Life’s a Peach. I love the yellowiness, it looks very natural on warm-toned skin.

Plurabelle commented on the post, How do you apply liquid eyeliner? 4 months, 3 weeks ago

This is something I’ve always had problems with (except actually with my first liquid liner from a couple of years ago, which had a perfect brush and consistency), but lately I’ve been wearing it more often and […]

Plurabelle commented on the post, What kind of coverage do you prefer in your lipstick? 5 months, 1 week ago

Not all opaque lipsticks are necessarily thick creamy formulas though. I chose opaque because my top lip is a bit darker than my bottom one, so my bottom lip looks way bigger – even though it’s not! When I wear […]

Plurabelle commented on the post, Do you feel there are too many beauty brands available? 5 months, 2 weeks ago

What annoys me the most is that a lot of “choice” we think we have is just an illusion, because so many of these brands are owned by the same big company, like Estee Lauder, Unilever, Johnson and Johnson, etc. I […]
