I like her products, but these are just unjustifiably expensive. If you buy the collection at Charlotte Tilbury, it’s a mere $385. Seriously? Norman Parkinson is an icon, but I would rather buy a print from the […]

You wrote: “If you use the applicator, you’re going to get pretty poor color coverage and blendability, as the applicator seems to pick up far more water and not enough pigment two out of three pulls.” This was […]

The MAC website says: 0.8 g / 0.02 US oz. I hope that’s per shadow. A single full-sized MAC shadow is: 1.5 g / 0.05 US oz. So these must be small…

Cinema Secret Brush Cleaner. And if I think something really needs a deep cleaning, I use Clean Apothecary Brush Shampoo in Goats Milk.

I am NW 10-15 (usually 13), so know the need for “cool” highlighters…

Bobbi Brown Highlight Powder in Pink Glow
Bobbi Brown Luxe Sparkle Powder, sadly LE and now discontinued

The ‘The Supermodel’ Genius Tutorial Video Box is $290 at Nordstrom!! http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/charlotte-tilbury-the-supermodel-genius-tutorial-video-box-limited-edition/3922225

I use Cinema Secrets brush cleaner every time I use a brush. And if a brush needs an extra-deep cleansing, I use Clean Apothecary’s Goat’s Milk brush cleanser.

Day of the Dead sugar skull… My inspiration was Rick Baker’s Day of the Dead look for MAC. He, of course, is a legendary make-up artist and I’m not. But it was great fun.

Cinema Secrets. It cleans, sanitizes and has a nice vanilla scent.

Went to IMATS this weekend. Love the talks and demos. There are also good discounts (30 – 40%) at the exhibition. Mind you, I think the wait at MAC, Sigma and Lime Crime were easily an hour or more, but I […]

One of my favorite winter beauty tips is to put coconut oil on your face before you shower/shampoo. It prevents the hot water from drying out your skin.

I bought the Oval 3 and I have to say, I have never experienced more perfect (or easy!) cream eye color application… smooth, flawless and even in two strokes. I’m going back for the Oval 6.

Bravissima, Christine, for your thoughtful and well-researched post. I confess to being horrified when I read that Nars was honoring Bourdin. I find his more controversial images unviewable, but I am aware that […]

Purely Cosmetics Diamond Perfect Finish. It contains real diamonds and gives you a flawless finish.

Your skin tone/coloring: MAC NW 10-15
How many blushes do you use in a week (on average)? 7
How many lipsticks do you use in a week (on average)? 7
How many eyeshadows do you use in a week (on average)? […]

What a great question… and reading all the answers makes me feel a lot better! I usually take 30-40 minutes for work make-up and an hour (or so) for special events. I am in awe of people who can do the “five […]

What a great collection for the fashionista! (Hope the product matches the packaging.) Wonderful to see supermodels Marisa Berenson, Jerry Hall and Pat Cleveland, again. And such a nice tribute to the legendary […]

I got mine yesterday and am wearing (well, exactly what you’re wearing, Christine) some of the colors today. I agree with you, the colors are gorgeous and buttery. I am NW 10-15 and found all the colors very […]

I second the “Buffy” choice and would add “Firefly”. Inara wore amazing eye colors and I would buy anything named after Malcolm Reynolds. :-) And what about “Angel?” We would need a color in honor of […]

The palette and the mirror are already sold out! I got an email notification at 9:00 PDT and when I saw it and went to purchase two hours later, they were gone… Sephora needs to consider limiting the number of […]
