Whoa, look at all that pigment. I wonder if they plan on replacing the Colorburst line with these.

I blame Temptalia for my current cosmetic debauchery. I came here to look up a good red lipstick, and I wound up falling down the rabbit hole.

There’s a special place in hell for people who screw up taupe eyeshadow, much less overpriced taupe eyeshadow.

LOL. I feel like angry!Chris from Project Runway whenever it pops up on my monitor. “Light English Red…so pretentious. It’s f@#$%! pink!”

I love both of these colors more than I thought I would, but there’s no way I’m shelling out $30 for MAC lipstick given how the formula treats my lips. For the cost, I’ll probably go for the Burberry or Chanel, […]

Stag is a gorgeous liner color and needs to be added to the permanent line stat (ALONG WITH STRAY DOG PLZ), but the rest of it is entirely too warm for me. The blush looks oddly cool on my monitor, though. If it […]

Very pretty. It’s nice to see a gold highlighter that isn’t dominated by yellow tones. It’s surprising how hard antique gold highlighters are to find. I have Chanel’s Camelia de Plumes, so I’ll be passing, but […]

Veronica commented on the post, What type of products below do you have too many of? 5 days, 17 hours ago

Pretty sure the answer is, “Everything,” but I guess I’d have to go with eyeshadow. I actually rotate my lipstick collection often enough to get decent wear out of them, whereas I tend to just swipe eyeshadow on as I go.

Yes, this is how you do miniature collections right. You release crazy colors that nobody will use an entire tube of and then lower the price. I am a-okay with this. Not interested in any of the shades, but […]

For Guerlain-esque pricing, that better be an A grade. It’s a pretty duo but a tad boring. You’d think they’d have gone all out with Gurung’s avant garde style.

Gorgeous. I may have to give it a look when it hits stores. :)

Honestly, I can’t be too judgemental. The $50 I blew on Guerlain Gigolo is more than some people in the world see in a month, so extravagance always had a context. For some people, $700 is a drop in the hat.

I laughed when I saw the price, but someone out there will buy it. Never underestimate the kind of money people can afford to toss around.

What the hell is a beige red? You mean pink, MAC. Get out of here with that pretentious tripe. The packaging is live – more Dior than Gurung, though – but the products themselves are kind of a let down. Who […]

Ulta is the only beauty store that I feel has a truly excellent rewards program. The new Platinum membership tier is just incredible if you’re a big spender – where else could I have gotten Lipstick Queen’s […]

I love these orangey coral shades. Not always so sure they work well on me, but they’re great for a pop of color. Supermodel Coco Rocha tends to wear shades like this a lot, and I always love how it stands out on her face.

Dita von Teese and Gwen Stefani have always been favorites of mine. The latter was the inspiration for bleaching my hair. :)

I’ve never had a problem with application for most of them, but I do find that they dry out the fastest of all my cream eyeshadows. The matte and metallic ones in particular got quite stiff pretty quickly. I’m […]

I’m kind of surprised at the rating, given that the luxury matte line is excellent and worth the $50 price tag to me. With all the competition on the market, including her lower priced line, I don’t see this […]
