Gorgeous, but the price is insane.
Can you recommend a lip-dupe for this?

Nope, don’t get it.
I like the show, I watch the show, and as entertainment, I don’t take it too seriously.
But we’re talking about a woman(character) who has an alcoholic husband who treats her badly, is […]

Lisa commented on the post, Have you ever had makeup stain something? 3 weeks, 5 days ago

I remember when I first started grad school buying a sweater from Banana Republic (a hugely expensive purchase for me at the time since it wasn’t on sale, but I just loved it so much)–and spilling foundation on […]

I’m usually pretty good at saying no, especially when someone’s really pushy–it just get’s my back up.
But having worked as an SA, I have to speak up for them. Your manager will pounce on you every day and ask […]

Lisa commented on the post, LORAC Pro Palette 2 Eyeshadow Palette Review, Photos, Swatches 1 month, 1 week ago

Yay! I always thought the original Pro Palette had lovely quality, but the color choices just seemed weird to me–so orangey! This one seems to have way more universal colors.
But can they please make a law […]

Right?! Club is one of the shadows used for the makeup in the Great Gatsby film–it’s used for one of Myrtle’s friends when Nick and Tom end up at a crazy drunken party. It does a really nice job of making her […]

Cassiopeia reminds me a lot of MAC’s Opalesse.

I love all these looks. And Easy Baked makes a great inner-corner highlight.

Lisa commented on the post, What kind of mascara wand do you prefer? 5 months, 3 weeks ago

I like a relatively fat wand with like a gajillion bristles. Those are the only ones that seem to grab all the lashes, coat them, and separate them. So I generally don’t like the rubber brushes, since they tend to […]

Lisa commented on the post, How willing are you to reapply your lip color? 5 months, 3 weeks ago

I try to reapply as often as possible. It’s not so much about the color, but about the feel. I like to have my lips feel very moisturized, and my lip product to feel very slippy and emollient. I find most […]

This was great to read, as always.
I have to say though, I don’t understand how Hourglass could be considered a niche brand. It’s sold at Sephora. Mass-market distribution seems to me the opposite of “niche”.

I was totally going to buy something just for the free lipstick, but luckily for me it’s already sold out.

Lisa commented on the post, How often do you depot your beauty products? 6 months, 1 week ago

I pretty much only depot if the original packaging is defective or breaks, or occasionally if the packaging is really bulky. But I generally feel that it’s a huge waste to pay for the packaging that it comes in, […]

Lisa commented on the post, Hit List: Best Liquid Foundation 6 months, 1 week ago

I’m still searching for my HG, but the best I’ve tried is the Kat von D Lock-It Tattoo foundation. Nothing else matches it for coverage, and as long as you don’t pile it on it doesn’t get cakey. I do wish it […]

Have you ever met someone unexpectedly and had them grab you in a big hug…only to leave a big foundation smudge on them! Mortifying.

I have Espresso Exposed, and I was pleasantly surprised. I thought it applied much redder than in the tube, where it looked really brown. The formula is definitely sheerer and glossier than the other, creamier […]

Lisa commented on the post, Do you like palettes to have clear or opaque covers? 6 months, 2 weeks ago

I like opaque because you can have a mirror, and you don’t have to worry about it getting scratched up and starting to look bad, or haveing flimsy clear plastic. On the other hand, it’s really nice to be able to […]
