Carla commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Milani 7 hours, 55 minutes ago

I LOVE that Milani is cruelty-free; that’s very difficult to find in drugstores!
They also offer a wide selection of quality products in the bolder shades that I like, with some neutral “basics” in the mix.
I, […]

When the Melted Metals first came out, I took it for granted that I’d be buying *at least* one, probably Dream House.
However, now that I see them, Dream House looks quite a bit paler than I’d expected – I was […]

Ever since these first came out, I’d pretty much planned on buying Metallic Dream House, but now that I see it, it actually looks a little on the pale side, for me!
I may go for Jelly, instead.
I, too, think […]

@Bee,
I’ve used mine several times now, and the tip is holding up fine.
It has become pretty well saturated with color, but it’s still soft and not clogged.
I find this type of applicator easier to control than […]

Jelly Donut is just my kind of color, and I love the fact that it wears well.
At least one of the Melted Metals is coming to live with me soon! :)

Hmm.
I wonder if this would be too orange for NW15 brunette me.
For reference, MAC Lady Danger is too orange on me, but [discontinued] Powerhouse was not!
That’s the story of my life – trying to find reds that […]

The Melteds do take some getting used to, particularly if you’re accustomed to a very creamy/glossy feel/texture.
I do find it difficult to resist the urge to put a bit of gloss over my Melted, but even a drop […]

I don’t own OCC Queen, but I’ve heard it described as “coral,” and Jelly Donut (which I do own) is not even a little bit coral – it’s much more in the magenta/fuchsia range.
In my opinion, Jelly Donut is more […]

I am DYIN’ to see the metallic Melteds!
Maybe it’s because I’m an ’80s child, but I love me some shimmery lip colors!

I own Jelly Donut, and love it!
On NW15 me, it comes out a bright-but-not-quite-neon raspberry, which I LOVE, especially for warm weather.
I get about two to three hours wear out of an application, if I don’t […]

◾Your skin tone/coloring: NW 15; brunette; green eyes
◾Favorite coral lipstick? Coral doesn’t look good on me – the nearest I wear is MAC Impassioned
◾Favorite pink blush? MAC Tippy

The only one in this palette that at all appeals to me is “Moon River,” primarily because I’m still on a seemingly hopeless quest for a dupe of MAC “Unbasic White.”
However, it sounds like Moon River isn’t it, […]

Carla commented on the post, Do you change your lip color throughout the day? 2 weeks, 5 days ago

I’m glad to know that I’m not the only one who’s willing to build an entire outfit around a lipstick!
In fact, I’ve been known to *buy* clothes (as in, an entire outfit = clothes, accessories, other makeup, nail […]

Carla commented on the post, Do you change your lip color throughout the day? 2 weeks, 5 days ago

No, I stay with the same color all day. I typically don’t even touch up my lipstick – I just dab on a bit more gloss for a “refresh.”

Profile picture of Carla

I agree.
Even if you want a “vivid” blush look, it seems to me it would be very tricky to execute tastefully, especially with a damp blush.
Does anyone have a photo of a well-applied vivid blush look?
I don’t […]

Carla commented on the post, Round-up: NARS Dual-Intensity Blush Overview & Thoughts 3 weeks, 1 day ago

Ah – I *was* missing the point!
I still don’t think this particular product is right for me, since, as I stated before, I prefer a very subtle look when it comes to blush.
That probably also explains why I’ve […]
