It isn’t much of a “haul,” but I’m excited to a rather pathetic degree because UPS is showing that my Sephora package is “out for delivery.”
All the package will contain is one OCC “Meta” Stained Gloss, but I’ve […]

Durn it – I LOVE this one, but it’s sold out!
Most of the dupes aren’t made by cruelty-free companies, either.
BUT this reminds me of a long-ago MAC LE, “Utter Fun.”
I’m consoling myself with the knowledge […]

Ooooh, noo – my worst nightmare has come true – I LOVE this one, and it’s SOLD OUT!
Yeah, it’s on eBay for $60.00+, but I’m not completely insane! :)
Thank You, God [and Temptalia] for the Dupe List!

I meant, of course, that I “probably already own a DUPE.”
Still, since when has that stopped me?
Last month’s Lip Lab offering wasn’t one of “my” shades, but this month’s totally is.
I hope it’s still available […]

Oh, nooo – I LOVE fuchsia on me!
Of course, this probably means I already own a dup, or at least near-dupe, but since when do I care? :)

Oh, my goodness! I don’t usually buy Urban Decay – though they’re cruelty-free, L’Oreal, the parent company, isn’t – but some of these colors (particularly the lip glosses, look mighty appealing.
I hope we see […]

Oh, yeah – I use gel on my upper lids, and a matte eyeshadow, applied with an angle brush, along the lower lashline.

I’ve vacillated quite a bit on this one.
I started out with pencil – not opaque enough.
Then I tried MC Fluidline and Bobbi Brown Ink gel liners – had to set these with a matching matte shadow, which was too […]

What Mariella says makes good sense to me.
If a product is really good, customers will want to buy it repeatedly, and it stands to reason that the company will make more money that way.
I like the way Illamasqua […]

I agree. Seasonal collections might be *okay* as limited editions, but the products should be available in sufficient supply to allow those of us who wear, say, berry lipsticks in summer or fuchsia in winter to […]

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 […]
