Well, now that I see the four set is sold out, but the six set is still available, maybe I need the six set – then I’m getting four new shades instead of two! That’s good math, right? ;)

Sooooo tempting. I have full sizes of rose gold and cocoa and they are awesome. I never got amethyst because I have the By Terry Ombre Blackstar in misty rock and the two see so similar. So I don’t need this… […]

I’d experiment with color. Maybe do a rainbow eye in honor of GLBTQ rights and marriage equality!

The blush is gorgeous, but I think I just fell in love with that lipcolor! What is it?

I used to live near a Saks – well, the Saks in my area recently closed. They were notoriously bad on returns – they didn’t want to take anything back. I rarely shopped there and a good friend stopped shopping […]

I second NARS Ita! It’s a great brush. Picks up the perfect amount, easy to fit under cheekbones, and great at blending.

- Medium Neutral/Olive (N30ish)
- I bought a Boscia konjac sponge today. My Clarisonic is dying (3 years old) but was really too harsh for my face anyway.
- Tough call: Tom Ford Nude Dip and/or NARS Dolomites […]

I have the same problem! The only liner that won’t get on my contacts, if I’m careful is Bobbi Brown gel – but I don’t put it on my waterline (tightline from above on upper lash line). And I have to do it before […]

For mascara, I’d say cover girl lash blast waterproof. I don’t have particularly watery eyes, but even tears and rubbing won’t get this stuff off. I usually have to use a cotton pad soaked in eye makeup remover, […]

I second Clarins! It’s often ignored. I only recently started exploring the brand and they have a lot of great skincare and makeup!

Skin tone/coloring: Medium/Olive around MAC N30
Highlighter? Kevin Aucoin
Palettes? Lorac. Not the largest selection, but the Pro palettes are necessary basics for me.
Mascara? High end I like YSL, but I always […]

I do love it! I like that it is not too warm. I have a lot of very warm neutrals. I was worried that only one shade was on the darker side – I have medium/med-tan olive skin and light shades often look wrong on […]

No apologies necessary! ;) Of course, I was only joking. I wouldn’t be visiting your site (um, every day) if I didn’t want to be tempted!

I also like how the palette provides a good light to dark range of […]

Crap! I was waiting for your review of this in the hopes that you gave it a B and I could tell myself I shouldn’t get it! But now I know, try as I might, that I will end up adding this to my already-large nude […]

Just got back from my local Nordstrom and grabbed one of the LORAC skinny palettes. The one I got is “Nude” (because I need another nude palette like I need a hole in the head!). The back of the box says it comes […]

I’d focus on those left colors and that orange!

That makes total sense! My fuchsia and reds definitely last longer and better. And some colors seem almost impossible to do well. Thanks!

I’m really curious… You almost always give a fuchsia lip a higher rating than other colors of the same brand. I often think “Girlfriend loves a fuchsia lip!” ;) But I really wonder if there’s something about […]

Right now, Bite Agave Lip Mask. But if things are really dire, nothing, I mean nothing, works better than German Nivea (has to be produced in Germany, not Mexico or Asia).

Skin Tone: Neutral/Olive, Medium-Tan
WP Mascara: Cover Girl Lash Blast WP. Almost any mascara will run or flake on me – even a lot of WP. This stuff requires 2 – 3 steps to remove, but it does not budge at the […]
