Brenda commented on the post, Ardency Inn Launches for Spring 2015 4 days, 2 hours ago

I’m very intrigued and trying hard to imagine a “medium grey with a slight red undertone”…..and loving the looks of all the lipsticks! Haven’t tried anything from Ardency Inn; have only ready your reviews, Christine :)

*cough, gasp, choke* a hundred bucks!! I have been really trying to not post complaints but really – this thing better apply and blend ITSELF.

Can you recommend a dupe for Nameless? (something older, haven’t purchased shadow in a few years)…most of the other ones I could think yeah, i’ve got something, but Nameless has a certain tone to it I can’t place.

i find i usually have to grab another shade for highlighting/blending, but usually stick with the palette when doing a general look – unless i have a specific need for certain colours – then i’m all over the place lol

I actually really like this! Someone mentioned the bright but sheer look as being a good way for the colour shy, and I like that about this. It’s juicy and bright yet totally wearable! Payday for me is […]

Brenda commented on the post, Do you have a blush that goes with any look? 2 weeks, 6 days ago

I know I can always grab NYC Central Park Pink! It’s a light dusty peachy pink beige (that’s a mouthful LOL). It imparts a slight colour and warmth enough to make me look healthy and a bit more sculpted. It […]

Brenda commented on the post, What do you use to wash your makeup brushes? 2 weeks, 6 days ago

I have also found the Dr.Bronner’s to be the best cleaner for my brushes. I have the lavender bar formula right now and it works so well to get even stubborn foundation out of my dense brushes.

Brenda commented on the post, Do you have any “bad” beauty habits? 2 weeks, 6 days ago

I am guilty of rubbing my eyes lately (toddler and newborn = exhausted, tired itchy eyes!). I am also guilty of:
– still separating my eyelashes with a pin if they are too clumpy. It’s so bad, I know.
– […]

Brenda commented on the post, Free for Haul Friday, Volume #270 2 weeks, 6 days ago

lol, I was going to say – Mellan’s that fed up with winter? Hahaha!! I know that’s how I feel about now. I live about a hour east of Toronto and it is SO cold and windy. Only about 10 inches of snow but it’s been […]

Unfortunately the lipstick doesn’t look all that original but I DO like the lipglass. It seems to impart decent colour for a gloss and I like the sparkle :)

I love the convertibles as cheek colours, I just find they are way too dry for my lips – which are in horrible condition, btw. I think you’d need lips in great shape to use them as lip colours. That being said, […]

ooohh, i”m really into colours just like Unashamed and Unimaginable lately. Too bad Lorac seems to be impossible to get in Canada anymore. It used to be one of my fave brands.

Brenda commented on the post, What one makeup palette do you wish you had purchased? 4 weeks, 1 day ago

Christine, I have to laugh at your answer, only because you probably have every palette made in the last 10 years! (due to your career path, of course!!)

For me it would be Dior Beige Massai. I remember seeing […]

Brenda commented on the post, What type of applicator do you prefer for your liquid eyeliner? 1 month, 1 week ago

I said “other” because I like very specific brushes for my liquid liner – thin artist brushes, bristles not too long (like watercolour brushes), usually acrylic brushes. I have a really thin white Taklon brush […]

I love the idea behind this, but trying to picture how this will work on darker skintones, which as I type I realize could look really amazing, and how will this work on tones like yours, Christine and mine which […]

Brenda commented on the post, What’s your method for preventing your polish from chipping? 1 month, 2 weeks ago

I haven’t found a surefire method yet, but I did find by layering a regular (non quick dry) top coat UNDER the quick dry top coat it really helped with chipping and peeling. It kind of created a buffer against […]

I don’t have the original Chocolate bar palette and can’t say I have even played around with it at Sephora so I can’t compare the two but I really like this!! I was on the verge of feeling like I have way to […]

The Wet N Wild Comfort Zone. I don’t think I have ever used it. I also HAD to have UD Naked 2 but I hardly use it either.
