I just ordered this. I think, for me, the appeal is in the compact presentation: you could take this and only this and go on vacation, and I’d get both a minimal or a more bam! look.

I have Lovelust and Orgasm, […]

Kristina commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Flat Irons 1 month ago

Pro: the glossy finish. It takes much less time to get it than if you were to use a hairdryer.

Con: it flattens pretty much everything. Unless you backcomb or curl afterwards, the hair looks pretty limp.

Aw, what a disappointment that the sparkles fall out! I think I might give them a miss, even though that green one looks beautiful.

Kristina commented on the post, How often do you use eyeshadow primer? 1 month, 1 week ago

Aaaah, the advantage of non-oily lids, Christine!

I wear eyeshadow primer every day if I am wearing shadow, or it ends up creased and messy, which is a good look if that’s what you want to go, I guess, but… […]

Thank you so much for replying, Christine! I might just splurge on brushes then, because the eyeshadow quality doesn’t seem worth the price.

Hi Christine, I was wondering which Tom Ford eyeshadow palette you would recommend. I really want to splurge on one, but I am scared it will be a miss (like Ice Queen and, to a lesser extent, this one). Is there […]

…How disappointing! It’s same old, same old.

To be honest, though, I was going to pass on this as soon as I read the shade names: Orgasm is the only NARS blush I own, and it is also the ONLY blush I own to […]

@xamyx: This makes a case for continued use, even with a difficult start! I am now excited again for this palette: I know to use primer and to keep at it until the eyeshadows soften, hopefully.

Can’t return used makeup here in the UK. I caved and ordered it online, but now I’m second-guessing myself. Like you mentioned, Christine, some shades will just take more work. It’s just so portable and the […]

I have been eyeing a few Nars shades for a while (Lhasa, Coconut Grove, Mekong) but I am not a fan of singles, so when I saw this I thought it was going to be the Second Coming. Considering your review, I wouldn’t […]

Too intimidated to put my brushes in it! I’m hoping tomorrow I’ll be inspired.

I also want to take the chance to thank you so much for all your amazing 2013 lists, Christine! I still haven’t gone through all […]

Haul: the Ready Artistry palette of BareMinerals that I ordered just arrived yesterday! I also bought something like 6 sweaters from French Connection and 6 pairs of designer jeans from Harrods, because everything […]

This is calling to me like no other MAC collection in two years! The promo pic is stunning, very old-school glamour with a modern twist.

I thought I was the only one! I bought into the hype with Naked 2 and I’ve barely used it. Gonna think very carefully before another one of those purchases.

HOLY MOTHER OF WHAT THE HELL. This is nuts. My storage space is running low, though, and I found the past two iterations of UD (Naked Basics and Theodora palette) to have become quite powdery! Extremely soft, but […]

Hi Rachel, it is currently available from Liberty: I bought mine online from them. I am not sure if Space NK is going to stock them, but i assume they should.

Thank you so much Christine!

OMG I may have just bought this because I AM A SUCKER. But that packaging is amazing, and you get three colours! I have the lightest one in Diffused Light and I wanted to try other ones, and this is […]

Oh, that one is one that TOTALLY works for me. To be honest, you only see a difference when you stop using it (after two weeks or so). I thought it didn’t do anything and I abandoned it and it languished on my […]

The same thing happened to me with Burberry! I bought Trench eyeshadow and when I got home and opened it, the hinge of the eyeshadow was broken! I went to exchange it the next day and I was side-eyed by the SA who […]
