Brenda commented on the post, What is your least favorite part of your beauty routine? 1 day, 20 hours ago

1. Washing/combing my hair as it feels like so much work (it’s thick, waist-length wavy/curly). I only comb it in the shower with conditioner it in. It gets WAY to frizzy when I brush it out dry.

2. removing […]

I love the promo!! Very 70′s, makes me think Studio 54 (maybe a bit more toned down LOL). *likes*

Brenda commented on the post, What is your most used lip color? 1 week, 2 days ago

Surprising to me, I think it is NYC Kiss Gloss in Park Ave Punch and Hard Candy tinted lip balm in Blushing Bride, sadly BOTH are discontinued products but are products I can throw on with confidence. Through the […]

lol – I wore this from about 1992 till maybe 94 or 95, maybe even 96, probably every single day. I was given a bunch of Revlon lipsticks a couple years ago and guess what was in there – Toast of New York! I […]

oh, I am so guilty of this! I have hung onto several beauty products from the 90′s, when I was a teenager and really getting into beauty and fashion, and there’s a few I’m wishing I’d kept, like the old Wet n Wild […]

Brenda commented on the post, YSL Saharienne (4) Couture Palette Review, Photos, Swatches 2 weeks, 4 days ago

The colours are lovely, though for a name like YSL I’d expect

a) more pigmentation when put ON the LID
b) more of a difference between colours 3 & 4

I’m being picky. I went through my palette drawer […]

Brenda commented on the post, Do you like sheer nail polish? 3 weeks, 1 day ago

I like them only if my nail beds are in really good condition. Also depends on the colour – some just don’t work, they give me old lady hands!
I have a few from Zoya and they tend to be a bit streaky. I find […]

Thanks for the reply on these!! I hope what have will stave off the “I must get these!!!” feelings! I happen to have Rapunzel had Extensions, as someone mentioned may be similar to Artistic License too.

Lately I have been – at 9 months pregnant I feel SO much better if I put on makeup no matter what! You know, hide the tired dark circles & uneven skintone (thanks hormones LOL), try to beef up my dwindling […]

The colour is really nice, the type of colour I reach for as an easy everyday blush – shame about the texture and D report card! Esp. for Chanel’s prices :(

(It reminds me of NYC Central Park Pink Cheek Glow, […]

Christine, I did check the dupes for Deep Fixation and looked at Fyrinnae’s Peppermint Vodka – they look pretty close on my monitor but how close in real life are they? ( I know my monitor is a bit off). Also […]

Brenda commented on the post, LORAC Pro Palette 2 Launches June 2014 at ULTA 1 month ago

Agreed – I felt a big “UGH” when I read ULTA. So many great things show up there that aren’t available to us in Canada anywhere else!! (I’m in the GTA). It is a wee bit frustrating.

Brenda commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Wide Nail Polish Brushes 1 month ago

I prefer a wide brush as i find it does make application smoother. The OPI brush almost does my whole pinky in one stroke, I just have to touch up the sides a bit, and I find that size of brush works really well […]

Brenda commented on the post, How do you apply your lipstick? 1 month ago

Usually straight from the tube as well, although I have to admit, using a lip liner and lipbrush gives a MUCH better result (personally). It seems to even out my lips and fill them in better than just using the […]

The first beauty product I remember buying has to either be a Naturistics Grape lipbalm, maybe 1990 -ish, or a double ended eyeliner from The Body Shop, somewhere around 1992! I still think about those two items LOL!

They’re pretty, but they make me just sigh. I think i’m over the bright saturated pink lips. I want to wear Revlon Coffee Bean for a while LOL!!

Brenda commented on the post, Do you layer mascaras? 1 month, 1 week ago

ALWAYS! I have a couple different methods –

1. I’ll use a fibre mascara (hard candy’s right now), do a couple coats and then use a volumizing, like Voluminous or Revlon Grow luscious or lash potion. (I […]

I have found (being nearsighted) that I prefer to have a little bit heavier eye makeup if I’m wearing my glasses, as they tend to hide my eyes or make them look smaller. I will wear a thicker liner on the top […]
