Jen commented on the post, Rant & Rave: High-End Skincare 4 months, 2 weeks ago

I think it’s often overpriced. I recently learned that 2% salicyilic acid is great for my skin condition. Very few pricey products have that, but you know what does? Oxy. I started using that and got better […]

These sound like the meh shades from the Nyx round lipsticks – too much slip to apply evenly, feathering, etc. At least some of the Rounds are good, though! And only around $2-4.

Yikes!! I was going to order a couple of their more ordinary colors from this line… glad I decided “If I can’t test it, I’m not paying $36 for it.” :D

I just bought this, got it home, and realized some kind shopper had used it (testers, people – it’s what they’re there for!). I was going to go back and exchange it, but then I tried the Lolita eyeshadow palette […]

Jen commented on the post, How to Fill in Your Brows – Tips & Tricks 5 months ago

I just recently learned the trick for me! I have very dark brows, but they’ve always been very sparse. I would use a color “two shades lighter” and “less is more” because those were the standard rules I learned, […]

Well, that’s that. Gotta have it. Love the rose tones!

I bought one of the limited edition holiday 5-pans last year, and this doesn’t look all that different. That one was better quality than this (I think you ranked it higher, too). I’ll pass on this one. This […]

I have two of those – Moisture Surge Intense, which is super. I have normal skin, but use drying salicylic acid to treat a skin condition. MSI puts the moisture right back in, but isn’t greasy for me.

And you […]

I love love love that you struggled with this and then made it a teachable moment for everyone. It’s another reason why I admire you so much. :)

I think NARS has made an unwise choice here. All art belongs in a […]

These look so beautiful! I haven’t bought loose pigments in a while because I just prefer pressed. MUG’s pressed shadows are almost all fantastic and the ones that aren’t fantastic (that I have) are still really […]

Same here! Soooo tempting, but then I remember how the glitter shades just do not work on me. They don’t flatter me AND the glitter would end up in my eye if I used Elmer’s Glue to put it on. Thank goodness, as I […]

Well, I’m returning Hourglass’ top selling foundation primer (Veil) today, or possibly exchanging. I had a sample that was thick and worked beautifully, but all that will squeeze out of my full-size pump is a very […]

I bought a set of 5 over the holidays last year, including Slate and Violet. I find them better than Christine did, but not as good as you’re describing. I wonder if they’re just inconsistent? Weird!

Ulta has something like that here! You can spend your “points” toward products or salon services, and it’s just like cash – no restrictions.

Smashbox offers free continental US shipping on everything, plus samples, plus free lip glosses and stuff like that if you have a free account and buy between 9 and 2 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Also, you […]

Jen commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Bronzer 8 months, 2 weeks ago

I like them for contouring, but struggle with the idea of bronzing your face to a different color than your neck. Years ago, Tarte made a fantastic liquid bronzer that absolutely never transferred onto my clothes, […]

The packaging is very similar to Bare Minerals’ loose shadows. Elf’s loose pigments use the same thing, too. I guess I’m just so used to seeing it from other brands that I’m not really understanding what people […]

Jen commented on the post, How do you cope with under-eye bags/darkness? 8 months, 3 weeks ago

I discovered I was sensitive to soy, got it out of my diet (as much as possible – it’s a hidden ingredient, but apparently I’m okay with trace amounts) and mine have been fine ever since.

Right now I’m […]

Bella, I am no expert either, but a lot of people have a tendency to assume any product that has anything to do with petroleum is bad. That’s like saying all plastic is harmful to have near food because plastic […]

Eyeshadow for me, too. I still have a big weakness for it, even though I love so many other products now, too. Oh, so many… *eyes collection*
