the eye look you created with these shadows is amazing – it makes me know that i really need to pick up a chartreuse eyeshadow. do you have any recommendations ? i’ve been thinking of getting the one by sephora’s house brand.

Melissa commented on the post, What color eyeshadow do you reach for most often? 4 months, 1 week ago

Light beige/pinks (like urban decay WOS and bootycall) and golds (like half baked and ydk). I tend to wear bright/deep lip colors, so I like to keep my eyes neutral.

I almost exclusively wear dark reds and burgundies recently. I’ve been into Besame Noir Red and Besame Cherry Red especially!

Thank you so much! I just know that sometimes eye products aren’t completely lip safe, so that’s why I tend to avoid them. This is an amazing list though, I will be checking all of these out :)

personally, i don’t have problems with instigator (though it does seem to go on christine a little unevenly). it performs way better than punk couture.

I am so looking forward to these lipsticks! I hope we can see swatches before they come out, but if not, I’ll just go to my mac store on the release date. Hopefully I can convince myself to only buy two.

I almost always stray away from metallic lip colors (in fact I don’t think I own a single one) but Wanderlust is beautiful. It’s a shame it isn’t rated better, but it is probably still wonderful over […]
