Carla commented on the post, MAC Lightness of Being Mineralize Glass Reviews, Photos, Swatches 3 days, 22 hours ago

My goodness – collections like this one make it very easy for me to continue boycotting MAC.
If they’d brought back “Snowscene” lip glass or “Pleasure Principle” Dazzleglass, I might have been *slightly* tempted, […]

Good – I don’t have to want “The Scene,” after all! :)
I’m looking hard at the dupes, though.

Even though I’m not buying MAC anymore, I have to admit that I really like the looks of “The Scene.”
Is it at all similar to “Berry Boost?”

Carla commented on the post, What makeup tip are you most thankful for? 4 weeks, 1 day ago

I COMPLETELY agree, Ryou!
You do not “have” to wear the same things everyone else seems to be wearing, if it’s just not you!
Wear what YOU like, and what makes you feel good – it’s *your* face, after all!

It goes without saying, of course, that “beauty” is optional – we all look perfectly fine just as we naturally are.
But there’s no denying the fact that self-care can be extremely important to morale.

Carla reviewed Atomic 1 month ago

I’m growing to really love Illamasqua lipsticks, and colors like Atomic are a big reason why!

I loved bright lips even when bright lips weren’t “cool,” and unless you feel the same, Atomic may not be the best choice for you. Illamasqua describes Atomic’s color as “Fuchsia violet,” and I find that to be a fairly accurate description. On NW15…[Read more]

Because I essentially can never have too many grey eyeshadows, I like the looks of Graphite, though I probably have at least one similar shade.
Is it at all like MAC “Smoke & Diamonds?”
As for the shimmery […]

Carla commented on the post, What eyeshadow color do you have but seem to wear the least? 1 month, 1 week ago

I don’t even bother to buy “colors,” because I know I’ll never use them.
I used to buy them, telling myself that they’d be good for accents, but even I don’t believe that anymore. :/

I guess for me it would be browns.
Though neutrals are my favorites when it comes to eyeshadows, I can only successfully wear “cool” browns, and I more often end up reaching for grey or straight-up taupe.

I heard THAT!
I love silver and gray shadows, but for some bizarre reason it’s very difficult to find grays that look gray, not blue, not green, not white, or not too brown on me.
I’m NW15, but find that I […]

I like silver, because it seems to harmonize with my natural coloring, as well as with the colors I wear best/most often. I prefer a true silver, as opposed to one that will “read” blue on me.
My current […]

Carla commented on the post, How many beauty products do you have in your bag right now? 1 month, 1 week ago

As if I could count that high! :)
Let’s see … I have 100 + lipsticks, some of which should doubtless be discarded, at least 20 glosses, four foundations, three concealers, 70 + eyeshadows, around 10 eyeliners, […]

For a very simple almost-no-makeup look, I could swipe on OCC’s Crème Color Concentrate in “John Doe.”
I have ridiculously oily lids, so if I were to put a powder shadow onto unprimed lids, I’d have the […]

How does Nomad compare, color-wise, to Role Play?
I already have Role Play, and though I really like it, I’m not sure if I “need” a near-dupe.

Profile picture of Carla

Hmm. I am a fan of the Stained Glosses, but none of these shades really look like they’d suit me.
I don’t do “pale” well, and Nomad looks too warm for me.
Come on, OCC – let’s have some deep/dark shades for fall/winter!

I, too, love Nicole Kidman’s signature bright red lip – it looks wonderful on her.
