Kate commented on the post, Round-up: Tom Ford Lip Color Matte Overview & Thoughts 4 hours, 55 minutes ago

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 […]

Kate commented on the post, What’s been your go-to scent for January? 3 days, 20 hours 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 […]

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 […]

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.

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.

Haul: I’m still waiting for the the Spring collections to come out here, so I’ve been a bit restrained. I did pick up one of the new Dior Rouge Baumes, because anything balm-related sounds good at this time of […]

Nuxe Reve de Miel is the only one that works for me. Others feel nice enough when I put them on, but don’t provide and sustained relief after they’ve absorbed.

Crap. I was really hoping that this would be more delicate pastels with a smokier blue and not 50 shades of white. Strange too that the textures are sub-par. Guerlain are usually pretty reliable on that front.

Cosmetics industry advertising copy makes language cry. I don’t even read it anymore. For all I know, I could be supposed to stick these in my ear.

Mac Gem of Roses. It’s a really nice natural shade on me, but it always loses out to similar shades with a better formula.

Yay for a new look post! You look incredible and, despite the shimmer/ sparkle factor, I find this reads as extremely professional. You look like a CEO. (Well, I suppose you are the CEO of Temptalia, aren’t you?)

I picked up one of these and am in love. I’m holding myself back from running to the counter and buying all of them.

I was hoping that the gloss would be a little more vibrant or distinctive on its own. I feel like the last couple of Viva Glam glosses have just been sheer “add-ons” for the lipsticks, rather than standalone […]

Goodbye, money! This is one of those cases where I just need to figure out the order in which I want them, rather than figuring out what I do and don’t want. Question- Is it possible that the descriptions of Color […]

Rouge Bunny Rouge. I actually wish that they did more cool-toned colours because their quality is so good and their shades are such staples, but they really do have a lock on warm-toned neutrals for eyes, cheeks and lips.

Kate commented on the post, What makeup are you planning on wearing for New Year’s Eve? 3 weeks, 4 days ago

I’ve developed a tradition Over the last few years of wearing the Pantone colour of the year, so I’m thinking a nice orchid lip colour. Maybe Nars Angela.

The longer I follow your blog, the more lovely you seem to get. Another winning holiday look.

I love pink shadows (I’m weird like that) and I was really hoping that this would make a great introduction to the new formula, which I’ve not yet tried. Seems that maybe I should look elsewhere.
