Rouge Bunny Rouge, hands down. They manage to make shades that are wearable every day in every situation, but that are still incredibly unique.

The one that didn’t work for me was Ivy. It looked lovely and vibrant in the pan, but I could only get it to medium opacity and if I tried to layer it, it moved around and became uneven. Here’s hoping this version is better!

I love the look of Peony and Violet, I’m just scared that they’ll dry my lips out…

Hm… The things that I like most from this actually seem rather dupe-able. Diva-ish is right up my alley, but I feel like I have a ton of those colours. I bought Siahi and Ivy the last time they came out and […]

Don’t know if I’ll trouble myself with the nail polishes, but I can seriously see picking up everything else. I’m a lipstick fiend in general, I love both Armani lipstick formulas and their glosses, and magenta, […]

YIKES. This was the colour combination that interested me the most. As others have suggested, I think I’ll just use the colour mix as inspiration and find shades that work in my extensive stash.

I’m sure that […]

They really seem to have improved this series by leaps and bounds after the first “misfire”. I’m really hopeful that they’ll release a set with all the shades for the holidays!

Those colours look so pretty in the pan, but I find lustre finishes are always disappointing. The colours look like a cooler version of Nars Dolomites in the pan, so I think I’ll stick with that one.

This looks incredible! It’s nice to find a vampy shade that doesn’t have application issues. I have to admit when I see the words “Melted Villain”, I think of the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark…

Kate commented on the post, Round-up: Giorgio Armani Eye Tints Overview & Thoughts 3 weeks, 6 days ago

I have two so far (Rose Ashes and Emeraude) and Cold Copper is on the way. I really love these and completely agree with your ratings for the two that I have. I’m normally not a liquid or cream product fan (eye […]

Kate commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Chanel 4 weeks ago

I only started collecting Chanel four or five years ago, but my impression of their brand has generally deteriorated since then. I don’t find that they’ve come close to competing with the innovations of other high […]

Despite my pale complexion, I like bright blushes, because I find that a “doll cheek” effect works for me and therefore this was the duo that appealed to me the most. However, I really can’t abide blushes that […]

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 1 month, 1 week 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 […]

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 […]
