A La Parisienne, mostly because I knew Apres L’Ondee would be a good addition, but I wasn’t too certain of Parisienne. Turns out they’re both quite good for me!

I would probably try a bunch of Bite Beauty, try some of the new Givenchy even though I know for a fact they won’t work for me, pick up some face primer, *definitely* get some backups of NARS Smudgeproof, and […]

Cle de Peau Extra Rich Lipstick in Sk202. Seems to be a dupe of the original formula’s Comtesse de Cayla, and Burberry’s Nude Rose. The frostiness of it surprised me, and I really don’t like the holder. :(

Alexandra commented on the post, Do you find salespeople at the beauty counter helpful? 3 months, 2 weeks ago

Yeah, that’s pretty much the whole of it. It really depends, and I will go back to a counter a few times so I can ask questions of different SAs and gauge just how much of a damn they give. Unfortunately, where I […]

Hey — I’m not sure if you’re going to get this message, but I wanted to let you know that I’ve had my copper IUD for a year and eight months. It took about a year for it to happen, but my cycles leveled off. I […]

All right, SO. Maybe somebody can help me out hurr.

I just tried out Chanel Rouge Coco Paradis. The color was pretty on my very pale cool-toned skin (YSL BR20 is my perfect foundation match), but the formula […]

The SA at the YSL counter in my local Nordstrom said they were being discontinued. :(

Augh, this is so pretty. The thing is, I’m paley pale pale and cool toned — BR20 in YSL Le Teint foundation is my perfect match, so I’m not sure if this would work. :(

Y’know, I’ve noticed that Dior has this awful habit of hyping itself up to the heavens, but the quality just isn’t there most of the time. :(

YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat foundation! I really like it.

Coconut oil and a quick wash at least two hours before I actually get tired is my routine. Otherwise, I know I’ll just use my awful scratchy Neutrogena remover wipes.
