Kate commented on the post, NARS Adoration Dual-Intensity Blush Review, Photos, Swatches 4 days, 7 hours ago

No way are my pores going to accept this. I had assumed that the “softer colour when applied wet” was a typo the first time I saw it, because I’ve never heard of anything being less pigmented when applied wet. […]

There are certainly exceptions but taken on average, yes, I’d say the quality is higher (up to a certain point) and it’s the higher-end brands that have the newest “technology”, which then filters down into mass […]

Kate commented on the post, NARS Dual-Intensity Blush for Spring 2015 6 days, 12 hours ago

Looking at the pictures and thinking of the Dual-Intensity eye shadows, these seem like they’d be very frosty and emphasize pores on me. I’ll definitely have to see swatches before purchasing. I love the look of […]

Hm… I liked the old Rouge Coco formula just fine and there were a lot of good colours that I am going to miss now that they’re switching over. I wish that they’d gone the way of Guerlain with the Rouge G’s and […]

I don’t know if you remember, but a while back in your “Temptalia asks you” feature, you asked what people would really like to see in a Spring collection. I said that I really wanted some eye shadows that were […]

I was so excited until I saw this. I have no idea why some brands insist on gouging Canadian customers this way. (Additional duties and taxes would account for $2-$3 of the $28 price difference.) Too bad because I […]

Kate commented on the post, Rant & Rave: MAC Cosmetics 2 weeks, 3 days ago

Mac will always have a place in my my heart because they were my “gateway drug”, but I find that I’ve lost patience with the endless collections, especially the tie-ins.
I was happier with Mac collections when […]

Kate commented on the post, Bite Beauty #002 Creme Deluxe Lipstick Review, Photos, Swatches 2 weeks, 5 days ago

Part of me hopes that Bite will release a miniature set of these for the holidays. I’d rather have that than individual lipsticks I’d never finish and I HATE the feeling of being rushed into buying something, […]

Kate commented on the post, Do you prefer bold or neutral looks on yourself? 2 weeks, 6 days ago

I’ve always gravitated towards bolder looks and I’ve realised more recently that there is a reason for that. Softer makeup just makes me look unfinished at best, fatigued at worst. I usually prefer a neutral eye […]

These reviews make me sad. Hourglass is one of my favourite brands and I hate to think that we gave up their amazing shadow duos for these palettes.

Kate commented on the post, Have you done sports-themed makeup? 3 weeks, 4 days ago

I did a Brazil-themed look just before the World Cup, in honour of the hosts. I think that’s the only time I’ve done such a thing.

I’ve swatched these a couple of times and Jade is consistently weaker than the others, so I’m not surprised to see that one didn’t work out as well. Love the look that you did with these three.

This was definitely one of the ones I had high hopes for. Sad to see that it just doesn’t live up to the promise (which seems to be the case with all of these).

Funny, I swatched this in store yesterday with a dry, clean finger and powder went EVERYWHERE. I felt guilty…

I don’t suppose I’ll ever see these, since the TF counter in my city really only carries the regular formula permanent lipsticks. But I wanted to leave a comment to say how much I like the new recap format that […]

I’ve already fallen down the rabbit hole with these and am completely smitten. So far, I’ve just purchased one colour (#11 Rose Ashes), but there will be more. I’m curious to know your thoughts on all the other shades!

Kate commented on the post, What’s been your go-to scent for January? 1 month ago

My hubby got me a bottle of Guerlain Mitsouko for Christmas and I’ve been favouring that. It’s one of my all-time favourite scents and it was the one I wore most often when we first started going out. I ran out […]

Kate commented on the post, MAC Bellgreens Eyeshadow Palette Review, Photos, Swatches 1 month, 1 week ago

I feel like I have similar shades to some of these, but I’m just so hypnotised by Savant. (I think that’s part of its purpose, because it just draws your eye to the whole palette.) Definitely appeals to me the […]

Kate commented on the post, Marc Jacobs Beauty Spring 2015 Collection 1 month, 1 week ago

Definitely interested in trying out the lip products, but I think the powders will all be too dark for me. I suppose I should be thankful that I don’t want more.

Kate commented on the post, MAC Kindergarten Red Blush Ombre Review, Photos, Swatches 1 month, 1 week ago

Was hoping for a little more intensity than this, although it’s still an extremely pretty colour on you. I’m getting kind of distracted by how much I like that lipglass.
