Veronica commented on the post, Hit List: Best Concealer for Dark Circles 2 days, 16 hours ago

Benefit Lemon Aid is a good corrector, as is MAC’s cream concealer. They don’t generally budge much provided you set them with powder, which is important because my eye shape naturally has a lot of layers and […]

This is a strangely affordable deal. What is the catch? I said, and then I saw it was US territory only, haha.

Any strong, heady perfume, particularly florals, really put me off. I also can’t take really strong, synthetic fruity scents. NYX lip glosses and L’Oreal lipsticks are probably the worst culprits for me.

Save for the glosses, most of this will probably be a pass for me, but that ad is amazing. I can’t think of anything more perfect for representing the NARS brand than Tilda Swinton. She fits right in with the aesthetic.

Vaporize and Hoodoo are free to make their way into singles, but I’ll pass on everything else. Also, that is a hideous amount of chartreuse.

I’ve actually never tried peach blush, but I do think it would be more forgiving than on the lips. I keep meaning to try NARS Sex Appeal, but then I get distracted by everything else on my wish list. :p

I can really only wear peach on my eyes. It tends to wash me out terribly on the lips. Shame because the color is quite pretty, just not cool tone friendly.

I wore it yesterday, actually. The mattes do hold up very well over NARS Smudgeproof, which is impressive because of how easily they fade on me. The formula is a tad powdery, but nothing too bad. The only down […]

It’s been surprisingly cold here, too. Yesterday, it was 1F/-17C for most of the day (and that’s without the wind chill factor, too), warming up to about 8F/-13C later on. It was actually warmer at *night* when […]

Haul: NARS Audacious in Olivia, and my friend gave me Naked Basics 2 for Christmas. Since I trash talked the palette when it first came out, watch it become one of the most used items in my collection.

UD’s liquid eyeliner is pretty much foolproof. It lasts even on my oily lids. MAC Blacktrack is good where gel liner is concerned. I’ve yet to find a liner that can last in my waterline, though.

Highlighters too dark for porcelain skin, and with the exception of the first contour shade, too warm for us super cool toned types. A pass for me. I could see this working well on light to medium skin tones, […]

Skin tone/coloring: MAC NW10/15
Lip color you can’t be without? Usually, it’s anything red, but winter has ravaged my lips and left me lipglossing it up with Chanel Giggle.
Blush you’ll always repurchase: […]

Clearly not enough people, considering it took my comment for the joke to appear! :P

Colorpop, stop trying to make fetch happen. It’s not going to happen!

Frills is quite pretty. Initially, it reminded me of Viva Glam Nicki 2, but then I realized it had more pink it. More wearable on […]

Er, whoops, hit enter too soon:

I’m back in school and have my car insurance payment coming up, so everything non-essential is low buy at this point. I only have a few things left on my wishlist, anyway. :)

Camelia de Plumes <3 I wish I wasn't working tonight, else I'd have that front and center on my face tonight. Gold Glow No. 1 was also gorgeous and unique!

Veronica commented on the post, Do you consider yourself brand-loyal? 4 weeks ago

To some extent. I don’t trust any one brand all the way around since they all have duds occasionally, but there are brands whose seasonal collections I routinely seek out and wear, or whose counter I’ll visit […]
