Neutral eyeshadows – now you’ve got my number!
I’m kind of disappointed that “Feather” didn’t perform better, since I was hoping for a MAC “Unbasic White” dupe.

That’s plenty for me!
I’m not a Rouge member, but I have a friend who is, and she’s going to order Rainbow for me! :)

These look wonderful!
However, I’m just not on a blush “kick” right now – I’m actually content with the paltry 20 or so that I currently own. :)
Even so, I wish I could find a dupe for MAC “Tippy” Beauty Powder […]

Oh, nooo – maybe now I *have* to get it!
Just keeping capitalism alive … :)
HOWEVER, I think you can but it only if you’re a Sephora Rouge member, which I am not. :(

Great – egg me on! :)

Larenim “Spellbound” is, in my opinion, BETTER than MAC’s popular LE “Sweet Sienna.”
“Spellbound” is smooth, richly pigmented, and is a true taupe – at least on NW15 me, “Sweet Sienna” was obnoxiously […]

Hurray- Pure Luxe is GREAT!
Inexpensive, high-quality, huuuge range of colors, AND (unlike MAC these days, ahem) cruelty-free.

I don’t often do dupes – if there’s a high-end product that is really great, I typically go for the “real thing,” and budget accordingly.
However, I must say that I’ve found NYX lip pencils to be every bit as good as MAC’s.

I’ll admit it: I typically consider total price only.
But occasionally, especially if I’m having difficulty choosing between two expensive products, I’ll calculate price per gram/ounce, etc.
It’s often a real […]

With my “cool” coloring, I think I may NEED this in my life!
So far, the only Melted product I own is Melted Jelly Donut, but I knew I wouldn’t hold out forever!
Are the two at all similar in color?

I agree.
I find the Melteds (at least the one I currently own) to be the pretty much perfect compromise between the two forms: it has the staying power of a liquid, and the applicator makes application almost as […]

I like BOTH, but I cast my vote for traditional lipstick because that’s what I reach for most often.
I like the ease of application that a traditional lipstick affords, especially since I have poor vision and the […]

Colorful shadows are tricky for me because I have bright green eyes.
If I try to wear bright blues or greens, my natural eye color “washes out” to this strange pale gray.
I can wear plums, pinks, and purples […]

I, too, look drab in brown clothing, but I can wear brown eye shadow just fine, as long as it’s a “cool” (as in “greyed”) brown. Warm browns tend to make me look tired.
Taupes work *perfectly* for me, setting off […]

It is great that people who like, can wear, and have occasion to wear such colors have access to them.
They just don’t work for me.
Neither do corals and oranges, BTW. :)

I just don’t get it – black lip gloss?
Why?
I’m not trying to be nasty, but where would black lips be appropriate?

At least in the tube, these look almost metallic, which I seem to be seeing fairly often lately.
I thought a matte finish was the Next Thing for lips.
Which is it – matte or metallic?
I don’t care for matte […]
