Veronica commented on the post, MAC x Nasty Gal Collection for December 2014 14 hours, 22 minutes ago

LOL, I wouldn’t call Nasty Gal “risk-taking.” Most of their clothing looks like exactly what you’d expect of Body Central store, except the price is jacked up by half. The shoes on the other hand? Those are […]

Odd that the lipstick would be so different compared to the gloss and pencil. Maybe the pink was needed to keep it from pulling too yellow?

I felt the same disappointment when I swatched it. If the gold were lighter, less mustard toned, it would be fine, but it’s in a color range that’s completely adverse to the palette’s color scheme and really […]

Veronica commented on the post, How do you deal with eyeshadow fallout? 1 week, 1 day ago

I generally avoid it by not wearing glittery eyeshadow. :P But for the rare shade that persuades me otherwise, I tend to apply eye makeup first, cleaning up anything that falls underneath the eye. I also use a […]

Veronica commented on the post, Do you use the same lip color throughout the day? 1 week, 5 days ago

I tend to do two or so. I usually wear a bolder lip during the day, and when that rubs off or I’m tired of reapplying it, I’ll switch to a gloss.

Some of the pastels look a tad streaky, but Chambord is a delight. It says a lot that a budget brand produces a shade better than Kat Von D’s matte line. 9_9

Soleil is gorgeous! Closer to what I expected the Guerlain gloss to look like. I’m loving Adriatic Hardwired, too. Perfect semi-opaque nude for use pale ladies. :3

It’s beautiful, but I was hoping for a deeper red for the holiday. With the pink base, it could pull slightly fuschia on me. I guess the whole collection is going to be a pass, which is a shame because the […]

Veronica commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Liquid Eyeshadow 2 weeks, 2 days ago

I like it for washes of color, but I don’t find them particularly useful for heavier looks that involve blending. Boots No. 7 and Rimmel have pretty good formulas, though I usually abstain from using the built-in […]

Wow, these look a hell of a lot better than I thought they would for a budget brand. It’ll be really interesting to see them on!

Veronica commented on the post, 5 Beautiful Fuchsia Lipsticks Under $10 2 weeks, 4 days ago

Fuschia Flash is more magenta on my NW10/15 skintone than fuschia, but it is still a lot of fun and lovely to wear. My personal favorite is Covergirl Spellbound.

Veronica commented on the post, Gucci Fume Magnetic Color Shadow Duo Review, Photos, Swatches 2 weeks, 4 days ago

Yeah, I’m a little surprised at the prices Gucci’s trying to push on these. Gucci isn’t even haute couture like Givenchy and Dior, and they’re lines offer lower priced cosmetics. Even the esteemed and […]

Been awhile since we heard from Guerlain, eh? That lipstick looks gorgeous, but everything else looks too warm for me. I do like the holiday packaging, though.

LOVE the promo image. LOVE IT. The severe hair and makeup works perfectly with the sharp, geometric patterning. The eyeshadows do nothing for me, but those lipsticks? Especially that intense nude? I’m on it, […]

A lot of the brands are branching out and getting more competitive by moving away from traditional colors, but I also think beauty blogging is also building enough momentum that it may eventually start putting […]

They look very nice! I guess they’ve done some improvement on the formula. Though I have to say, it’s really bizarre that they would name a coral shade “Life in Red.” o_0
