Kate commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Potted Lip Balm 10 hours, 1 minute 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 5 days, 15 hours 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 […]

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.

Kate commented on the post, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette for Holiday 2014 1 week, 3 days ago

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 3 weeks 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 4 weeks, 1 day 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 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.

I should admit that I’m a huge Simpsons geek before I respond, because that probably colours my impressions, but I feel like Mac missed an opportunity here. Of course, the product quality should always be good, […]

Great question! I thought of two answers immediately (which is probably cheating):

1. Le Metier de Beaute, because I would want to have a serious talk on how to expand distribution and media coverage before […]

Alana- Don’t mean to stick my nose in here, but if you can order from Armani, Rouge d’Armani #609 is almost an exact dupe for Black Orchid. I haven’t seen the shade at counters up here, but it’s definitely available on line!

I just knew that looking at this post would be my doom. Really, I already figured from the swatches in your gallery that I knew I wanted Audrey (Manic is one of my favourite lipsticks, so I love the idea of having […]

I wish they’d done these as a quad palette! I may well end up getting all of them. The only question in my mind is Artificial Earth, which looks a lot like Nars Cairo which I already own. Love these original shades.

Kate commented on the post, MAC x Prabal Gurung Collection for Holiday 2014 is Coming 1 month, 1 week ago

The packaging certainly looks luxurious (kind of like YSL packaging, although I’m not a big fan of that), but I find it completely out of keeping with Prabal Gurung’s image. All of his fashions are very modern, […]

Kate commented on the post, Free for Haul Friday, Volume #250 1 month, 1 week ago

Really loving Les Sables. It makes my eyes turn an electric blue!

I have a vague idea of what I want to come up with, something medium-deep and berry-ish. Sort of close to the colour of stewed beets, but a […]

Hm, I knew I wanted to get Pink Cult, but this is making me think I might want Next to Skin as well. I love a subtle contour and most pull too warm/ orange for me.
