I suppose I should be happy that they don’t ship internationally, or I’m pretty sure I’d succumb to In the Glitz. Maybe not the most adventurous sets, but well-chosen.

I like the fact that there’s an increasing variety, because different types of blushes work better with different tools.

I don’t dislike anything about them as a general rule, but I hate scratchiness.

Too many of those shades have the word “glitter” in them. I wish UD would move away from those- they’re almost always a mess!

I never envy you having to illustrate how products like this work in practice, since the effect can be subtle. That said, you did a great job. I can clearly see the difference it offers. Here’s hoping that […]

Kate commented on the post, What type of products below do you have too many of? 1 week, 6 days ago

If I’m being honest, I have too many of EVERYTHING. But truly, I would need to grow three extra heads to accommodate all of the lipsticks that I have. I think it’s been about four years since I finished one and […]

I feel like I already have something similar in Nars Eurydice. Not a dupe by any means, but how many variations of a smoky eye with hints of eggplant does one girl need? (Funny how I never ask that about red […]

Another reason to love this brand. These look lovely. I hadn’t noticed Brandy before, but it looks stunning on you! Might have to bring some of these home.

These look lovely, but I’m starting to feel like we must have seen every possible permutation of hot pink in the last couple of years, especially from Mac. I love the shade and even I’m starting to feel fuchsia fatigue.

Rouge d’Armani 609. I love the formula and it’s a great dupe for Tom Ford Black Orchid. I’m still holding my breath for a vampy Rouge G, though. Gigolo is intense, but not quite there

I really appreciate you taking the time to do this! With such pricey product, as much as I love them, it’s always helpful to see as many swatches and comparisons as possible and it’s nice to have older but still […]

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 […]

Wow. That looks awful. I don’t mind the inclusion of a gold shade, since purple and gild complement each other so well, but I wish that they’d made it a bit more of an antique, or slightly “dirty” gold. I think […]

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 month, 2 weeks 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… 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.
