I seem to recall you having a hard time with the Velvet formula when you first reviewed it – I wonder if they reformulated or it was just that specific shade that was so drying. Interesting how slick they wear […]

The sad, slowly fading remains of Butter London Muggins. :)

Emilia,

I’d say Blood Orange has more of an orange/coral base, while NARS Heat Wave has a stronger, redder undertone. They’re in the same shade family but more like cousins than siblings, y’know?

I’m always baffled by how often cool-toned palettes are more troubling quality-wise than warmer toned ones. Something to do with the pigments, maybe? This is a nice palette over all; save for a few shades, it’a […]

I actually find bold lip shades can be lower maintenance than some MLBB colors if they’re properly prepped from the start – the high pigmentation means that they don’t fade as quickly or stain in such a way that […]

I think I actually like Rayonnante better because it is translucent. I’ll have to give it a look in stores!

The color is all over stores right now; my mom and I saw it all over the clothing and shoe lines today while we were walking around the mall. I just can’t take it seriously because when I hear the term “blood […]

Bobbi Brown Nude Pink and Cargo Prague. I’m still crushed Cargo discontinued the shade – so hard to find nice, neutral brown/pink blushes!

I’m currently an NW10 with cool undertones. I really like Bobbi Brown’s Nude Pink, though it can apply true to pan if you apply too much. The Cargo line also has Tonga, which is a nice, fairly neutral light pink […]

I was so excited to see this swatched because I thought it would be a tad purpler, so I’m surprised at how pink it is! If I didn’t have Angelika, I might have gone for it anyway, but…c’est la makeup. ;)

I have the first one and ugh…I love it. Pulls a little more red on me, but it is the perfect shade for what I picture when I think “blood orange.” (SO PRETENTIOUS IT’S @#%$#@# RED) Kumquat keeps calling my […]

No problem!

(Amending my post to fix the original typo – the L’Oreal shade is Sultry Smoke, not Smokey Grey!)

Veronica commented on the post, Do you finish beauty products regularly? 1 week ago

Depends on the product, but yes. Any matte, beige eyeshadow usually meets it’s untimely end (or pan) by the end of a year because it’s my go-to brow shade. I work through concealers like nobody’s business, and […]

Odd that the newer versions of these would be drying when I recall the original formula working well all around. I wonder if it’s because of the bright pigments they’re using? I can dupe both of these with the […]

L’oreal’s Smoky Grey from the Infallible line is pretty good. NARS also has Namibia and 413BLKR, both of which are lovely.

Taupe! There’s a reason the shade makes up the majority of my eyeshadow collection. It’s an easy-to-wear neutral, and the fact that it’s a mix of brown and grey means that it can work with both cool and warm tones.

Geneva is quite pretty, but I was hoping for a little more color punch when I saw the description. It’s still a great shade for the permanent range!

o/ I’m glad they wised up and re-released the majority of the Iris Apfen collection. That sold out for a good reason!
