Lisa commented on the post, What kind of mascara wand do you prefer? 2 months, 1 week 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? 2 months, 2 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? 3 months 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 3 months 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? 3 months, 1 week 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 […]

It doesn’t seem to have much pigment. Maybe the NARS single in Edie might be close.

Lisa commented on the post, What’s one lip color you feel like you can’t pull off? 3 months, 2 weeks ago

Hmmm, there are a lot of blue-based pinks that just don’t look right on me.
And certain corals pull very pink on me, and end up looking basically magenta (I’m looking at you, Maybelline Shocking Coral).
Oranges […]

At Sephora, we’re required to wear, as our makeup uniform, one of 3 “holiday looks” we’re promoting during the holiday season. 2 of them are pretty dramatic all over (if you’ve been in a Sephora, you’ve probably […]

Lisa commented on the post, How to Conceal Acne – Tips & Tricks 3 months, 3 weeks ago

I have that issue, too. Frankly, I haven’t figured anything out other than to switch up my routine. If, say, I have a blemish on the apple of my cheek, I’ll use a different look, applying blush to the backs of the […]

Lisa commented on the post, How to Conceal Acne – Tips & Tricks 3 months, 3 weeks ago

When you contour, you apply a darker color underneath an area (like your cheekbone) that you want to stand out, to create the illusion of a shadow. If you applied a lighter color rather than a darker color, […]
