Emily commented on the post, Do you finish beauty products regularly? 16 hours, 10 minutes ago

I finish mostly everything except eyeshadow and lipstick. I try to follow the “when to throw away your products” rule within reason. I use up my skincare, lip balm, foundation, and mascara well before the use by […]

I prefer shopping at Sephora as well. The sales associates may not be experts on every single brand they carry, but I love that they give generally unbiased opinions. They could put a whole look together using […]

Emily commented on the post, Do you find salespeople at the beauty counter helpful? 1 week, 1 day ago

A lot of factors contribute to how helpful a salesperson or beauty advisor is. I think a lot of it stems back to the training provided by the company they represent. Some companies only hold seminars once a year […]

I agree! It seems, especially with Estee Lauder, that the GWPs are the same season after season. It’s always the same lipstick color choice (Pink Parfait for cool tone or Tiger Eye for warm tone), Advanced Night […]

I think I’m more prone to buy a lotion or body wash with alluring packaging. Even if the product isn’t always 10/10, it still seems like a treat to use because it looks fancy. Products like that make great gifts […]

Hi Christine! I can’t believe I haven’t tried Jack Black Lip Balm yet considering all of the wonderful things you always have to say about it. Have you tried each of the scents? The grapefruit ginger sounds […]

Emily commented on the post, Will you be making any beauty-related resolutions this year? 3 months, 2 weeks ago

I think it’s important to do a spring and fall beauty cleaning, but sometimes I forget! I go through all of my products, see how old they are, and I also ask myself if I’ve used it in the last year. If something […]

Very fair, yellow undertone

I bought Aveda Nourish-Mint Soothing lip color in “Cana” this spring. It was a limited edition shade–a bold orange red. I love it!

I wear a bold lip color once or twice a week. […]

It did! I think it’s just because it’s winter, and wearing close-toed pumps everyday takes a toll on my toesies (I’m in Minnesota, so open-toed is out of the question this time of year). I’ll give it a go on my […]

I bought the China Glaze “Touch of Twinkle” set, which includes Just Be-Claws, Be Merry Be Bright, and Santa Red My List. All were full sizes for the price of one. :) Just Be-Claws is awesome, and Be Merry Be […]

Bummer! I usually love Tarte. The packaging is so pretty, and the price is right. I’m glad I read your review though or else I probably would have picked up a shade or two! I’d rather spend twice as much on […]

I agree with you on the eyeshadows! Overall, such a wonderful range of shades and textures with beautiful wear. I’ve learned to pass on any of the shades with micro-glitter though. I haven’t been able to find […]

Emily commented on the post, What would your dream eyeshadow palette consist of? 5 months ago

I would love to see your dream palette become a reality, Christine! You could create countless looks with that range of shades.

I would love to see a palette with 10 to 12 shades with mostly satin/metallic […]

My heart skipped a beat when I heard this was coming out! I thought I would have to be first in line to add to my UD palette collection. The initial impact of the palette itself is stunning. The rose gold case […]

The Korres concealer does double duty on my blemishes and under-eye circles. It has a medium-full coverage, but it’s so creamy and light! I don’t know about the anti-aging since I only have a few fine lines, but […]
