Wow, Formidable is indeed formidable! It reminds me of that gorgeous pigment Blue brown.

Those are gorgeous but when dry the color payoff is so poor I’m already starting to doubt their quality. Still they might perform better than expected and for that reason i’m glad they’re part of the permanent line.

gabis commented on the post, Do you prefer cream or powder blush? 1 month, 1 week ago

Overall I prefer powder blushes but I have it on both forms and wearing them depends on the kind of makeup I’m wearing. If I have anything powdery on my face I reach for powder blushes otherwise I opt for cream blushes.

MAC latest collection all failed to excite me. I don’t really see the point when a few products are as bad as this blush and most of the colors are so easily dupable. I looked at Peach Beige and immediately […]

Will this new line replace the current Aqua Shadow one? Here in Brazil all Mufe’s Aqua shadow line available at Sephora is on sale. I found it weird at first but now seeing this I can only assume they put it on […]

The quantity x price relation is important but to me there’s another important factor here: frequency of use. I don’t mind buying an expensive product that does not contain a lot of product if it’s something I […]

We have the same ridiculous high prices problem here in Brazil. But I blame the government and its abusive import taxes and duties.

Skin tone/coloring: I find it so hard to define my skin tone. MAC’s NW20 works good I think. So there you go.

LOL, really? Given all the fuss on Nars instagram account I though this palette would be a quick goer. I’m so glad to be wrong. Maybe this will force them to rethink their face palette projects.

Awww, I love this pic. Mellan is such a cute-cute-cute dog I just want to hug him. And I swear I can see all the love for you in his eyes.

Lipstick. I’m not a fan of lipglosses. Too much stickness for a usual poor color payoff.

It’s like someone said they put Orgasm in every cheek palette. It becomes quite discouraging to pay the prices they ask for those when you already have one of the shades. I wonder why NARS do it. It’s not like […]

Oh no, those lipsticks look dangerously similar to the Urban Decay Revolution ones. Not quite fancy of the copy. MAC used to be more original.

Hi Christine, which are your favorite finish powders? I need a new one but I’m really struggling to find it. Thanks!

To me it reminded me of Honeylove. Anyways, honestly, unless you’re c-r-a-z-y about the super matte formula, Runway hit is the worst one to purchase in my opinion. MAC has several similar shades of nude pinkish coral.

I tried but I just couldn’t like any of them. Exclusive event is too brownish and Flair for finery is too sheer. I’m not a fan of the magenta/cherry-red tones from Prepare to Pleasure nor the plum mauve from […]

gabis commented on the post, Do you prefer limited edition or permanent products? 9 months, 2 weeks ago

That’s a good question. Definitely permanent. I hate limited editions. I hate the kind of pressure this type of product put us through. And the quality of limited edition products is sometimes even below average […]

I’d wear sweet samba blush with calypso beat cremesheen glass from the same collection and mascara.
