The eyeshadows are pretty. In a sort of ugly way. I’m kind of fascinated by them. I’m also thinking that I may finally have to cave and buy Pink Cult, assuming it’s the same quality as it has been previously.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair (NC15/ Nars Mont Blanc) and neutral-cool, Black hair, Blue/ Grey eyes
Best brand for lipstick? Guerlain, although Armani is a close second, I find Guerlain colours more unique

A-England Princess Sabra. Unique and beautiful, but also neutral enough to go with everything.

Funny, I just picked up Red Strass and took quite a while deciding between that one and Very Pink. Both look great on you, so I think I may have to go back for VP.

You look absolutely beautiful in those colours. Bold warm tones are perfect for you.

Funny, I was thinking about this today. I’d choose a medium-bright pink-red with a subtle violet shift or undertone. Very clear and saturated. Bold without being traffic-stopping.

I’m glad these are permanent so that I can take my time picking the ones I want. That said, I want Greta immediately. Along with several others.

I quietly freak out and get annoyed, because I’ve yet to come up with a way of preventing it.

I feel like someone is attaching a ShopVac to my bank account.

Thanks so much for getting these swatches up- I can’t imagine the toll it’s taking on your poor lips!

All I can say is “Thank god they’re permanent”. Angela and Greta are fairly screaming at me to take them home. Several others are trying to get my attention as well… Interested to hear your thoughts on the formula.

I had the same thought as you- that I wondered how the number of uses you get out of this pencil compares to others. I’ve never counted, but I’m thinking that Hourglass are probably about par for the course. That […]

Kate commented on the post, Have you ever tried to de-scent a beauty product? 1 week, 6 days ago

I’ve often thought about trying to de-scent YSL glosses (not the glossy stains, just the regular glosses with that hideous “fig” scent), but I feel like anything I did to de-scent them would also compromise the product.

I can think of a few options:

Something with a modern art theme, with Nars
I’d love to collaborate with Chantecaille on an endangered species/ wildlife collection
A proper colour collection with Rouge Bunny […]

Hmmmm… The colours are really pretty, but I kind of feel like there’s no reason for these within the current Guerlain lipstick assortment. I know that companies always want something new, but as a customer, I […]

Thanks Chiara! Mine doesn’t have them, but I do think I’m going to try calling up the stores that do in order to see if I can track something down. I had a business trip to Vancouver last year and I made time to […]

In fact, I can’t even order Burberry, TF or most of LMdB products because retailers in the US won’t ship those products to canada. Some […]

Very pretty quad, actually. I have Sable and Black Tied already, plus a Rouge Bunny Rouge shade that looks fairly close to Sex and the Oyster. I hope that they bring back Brawn on its own at some point, because […]

This one is much prettier in swatches than it looked in photos. I feel like I have so many purple/ pink shades, but I’m really smitten with these, especially that second one, which seems quite different from […]
