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

Plurabelle commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Twist-Up Jumbo Lip Pencils 1 month, 3 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 1 month, 3 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? 2 months 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? 2 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? 2 months, 3 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 […]

Plurabelle commented on the post, Tarte True Love Amazonian Clay Blush Review, Photos, Swatches 2 months, 3 weeks ago

I’d never buy anything labelled “Amazonian clay” (just like I would never buy anything labelled “Dead Sea mud”) because I’ve been to the Amazon and seen first-hand the devastating effects of companies exploiting […]

Plurabelle commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Liquid Highlighters 2 months, 3 weeks ago

So much RAVE! My favourites are Benefit Sun Beam and Accessorize Bronze Highlighter (which is more of a bronzer, really; Sun Beam, on the other hand, is the exact same colour as my skin, down to the yellow tone). […]

Plurabelle commented on the post, How would you describe your makeup style? 3 months ago

Subtle, comfortable and elegant, is what I always try for. It’s quite hit and miss – sometimes it goes wrong and I spend the whole day feeling wrong, and sometimes a look comes together and looks like a subtle but […]

Plurabelle commented on the post, 5 Bright Red Lipsticks to Try This Summer 3 months ago

My favourite reds are Catrice’s My Red Card, Essence’s Stay Matt lip cream in Silky Red (both sadly discontinued, but I got lots of backups when they were on sale) and Rimmel’s No. 10. The Essence lip cream is […]

It comes in loads of different shades, including red-orange: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:RedOrangeBougainvillea.jpg But yeah, I think the fuchsia’s pretty common.

Plurabelle commented on the post, What do you love most about makeup? 3 months ago

What I love about makeup is the connection I feel with other women. It’s just a hobby like many other things – and it’s not my only hobby, or my favourite hobby (reading is my favourite). It’s also a passion, and […]

Plurabelle commented on the post, What do you love most about makeup? 3 months ago

I agree with you on the negative social effects (what you described sounds to me like stigma), but I would add the commodification and fetishisation of makeup as another negative thing. Usually commodification and […]

Plurabelle commented on the post, Who first introduced you to makeup? 3 months ago

Nobody in real life. I’ve always been interested in makeup (since I was a very young child) but nobody in my family/culture wears makeup. I honestly think it was Bollywood movies which made me love it – especially […]

Plurabelle commented on the post, MAC x Lorde Collection for Summer 2014 3 months ago

I have a very rational dislike of MAC – they’re a very unethical company – so they haven’t been able to tempt me since the Rihanna collections, and I’ve found (much cheaper) dupes for everything I ever wanted from […]

Plurabelle commented on the post, MAC x Lorde Collection for Summer 2014 3 months ago

LOL! I actually picked up a blush and lip gloss from the collection – DESPITE their being attached to Bieber’s name, not because of it. They were both called “Groupie at Heart” and the blush was all embossed with […]

Plurabelle commented on the post, 5 Bright Coral Lipsticks to Try This Summer 3 months ago

Sleek’s Papaya Punch – a gorgeous bright matte coral (and one of the first lipsticks I bought). I mostly tone it down with a more muted orangy coral on top, and then as summer draws nearer wear it on its own!

Plurabelle commented on the post, How many blushes do you own? 3 months ago

I really want a La Femme palette! Everything I’ve seen about their blushes makes me drool… I’d have to order it from the US though, that’s why I’m putting it off.
