Kate commented on the post, MAC Keepsakes/Plum Eye Bag Review, Photos, Swatches 1 day, 21 hours ago

The shadows are lovely, but am I the only one who thinks that the cooler purple of the pencil just doesn’t match? I wish they’d gone with a warmer purple or a black-brown with purple shimmer. As it is, I feel like […]

That colour was made for you, Christine!

I wish they’d done these as two separate palettes. I like Guerlain’s blushes (and I completely agree with you that they wear much better than they swatch). I would have loved a palette of four larger blushes, but […]

For once, I’m more interested in the lip glosses in a collection than the lipsticks!

Kate commented on the post, Do you use the same lip color throughout the day? 1 week, 3 days ago

It depends on the nature of my plans. If I’m spending the day in work-related activities and then going out at night, I’ll often change to something a little more dramatic for the evening. But other days I’ll just […]

I feel like I have so many reds (although none of the dupes you mention), but I always go weak in the knees when I see a new Rouge G in red. I may try to resist, but I have a feeling this will end up following me […]

Hm… That’s kind of the worst of both worlds… :-P

Hm… I have to say that I don’t really see the difference between the regular and the frosted matte lipsticks at normal viewing distance. I didn’t want a super shimmery look, but it’s less special than I’d hoped. […]

The violet-toned one reminds me of one of the YSL golden glosses, except the YSL one applies much more like what you see in the tube. If you were looking for something along those lines, I’d highly recommend that one.

Kate commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Potted Lip Balm 3 weeks ago

I wouldn’t carry them with me, but I do keep a pot of Nuxe Rêve de Miel next to my bed at all times, because nothing works better on my lips. I don’t find it that difficult to keep clean, although I’m generally […]

Kate commented on the post, Sneak Peek: Gucci Beauty Photos & Swatches + First Impressions 3 weeks, 5 days ago

Some of these swatches look really beautiful and I wish the collection weren’t being made by P&G. I don’t go so far as limiting myself to vegan products (although I salute those who do), but P&G’s record of animal […]

Kate commented on the post, Marc Jacobs Beauty New Shades for Fall 2014 4 weeks ago

I’ve grown really fond of the 3-shadow palettes. They’re a great option for a quick look and all of the new options look like fun.

This is one of those things that I knew right away would be coming home with me. I put a lot of faith in Hourglass products and I’ve loved the blushes I’ve tried thus far.

It’s funny, because I picked this one to try because I don’t have any dupes for it- I don’t have a single one of those you’ve listed and nothing else like it in my collection. Somehow, I’ve just missed all these […]

Kate commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Scented Nail Polish 1 month, 1 week ago

The entire concept grosses me out. The combination of the usual nail polish scent with more chemical agents designed to mimic another smell makes me feel ill just thinking about it.

I really like the two of them together. I keep looking at the lipstick and thinking “what an amazing colour”. And then I realise that it reminds me a little of Fluid- not that they look alike, but they have a […]

This is such a beautiful palette. The original photo reminded me a bit of Mac’s Photo Realism palette, but the shades are much more vibrant. I’m not certain if the brand will ever be available in Canada, but I am […]

Kate commented on the post, MAC Diva Lipstick Review, Photos, Swatches 1 month, 2 weeks ago

I cannot tell a lie. I am constantly getting this one and Media confused. It’s not that they look the same, it’s that I forget which one is which colour. I’ll have to bookmark this post as a reminder what this one […]

Kate commented on the post, What’s your go-to scent for autumn? 1 month, 3 weeks ago

Tom Ford Tuscan Leather. Later in the season I move to Armani Privé Bois d’Encens. For some reason that seems like fall-becoming-winter, whereas Tuscan Leather seems more like the earlier part of Fall. I probably […]

I was marveling at the beauty of Heaven in Sephora this weekend. These are definitely high on my sis list.
