No problem!

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

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!

Oh thank goodness, it’s too warm for me. :P I don’t know how I was going to justify a $95 compact to myself otherwise. This being said – I wish there were more matte taupes like the second shade out there. So […]

Less authoritarian, more freedom to schedule as needed, more focus on personal interests and disciplines, and to be blunt, the escape from the utterly toxic bullying culture that existed at my high school. (I […]

Our dog won’t sleep with toys, but he will curl up on my mother’s bed and sleep all day when she’s at work, looking plaintive and sad. 9_9 Mellan is a cutie, though!

Veronica commented on the post, How necessary is concealer? 6 days, 16 hours ago

It’s the only true must-have in my wardrobe due to my dark circles, to the extent that I’d call myself a concealer junkie. Quite often, I’ll skip foundation all together, as I have good skin and often like the […]

Glasswing and Melancholia are not very cool to my eye, but at least this palette isn’t quite on the level on MAC’s “cool-toned” neutral palette from awhile back. 9_9 Too many dark shades for me to really get use […]

I wouldn’t call this an overtly cool-toned collection when it contains shades like Mangrove and Pinkfringe. Not that somebody with my skin tone (NW10) couldn’t pull off shades like that, but I’d say it’s more […]

NARS Copacabana, by a pretty decent margin. Great shade for cool-toned women!

I love Mangrove and Woodrose, but agh….the packaging. I mean, the colors are gorgeous, but what were they thinking with the word placement? Think how much sleeker and balanced that tube would look if the […]

I am baffled by the performance of Playland when they released a similar shade about a year ago in the Ruffian collaboration that performed just fine. You’d think they would just reuse that formulation instead of […]

MAC also has a white shade that you can use to lighten foundations. Dita Von Teese apparently uses it. Might be a tad gentler on the wallet than Illumasqua.

Out of curiosity, how fair are you? I’m an NW10 […]

A brand that remember cool-toned folk exist? I think my heart just gave a little flutter. ;) Not sure if I’d wear enough of these colors to justify buying it, but it’s worth giving it a look in stores!
