Sasha commented on the post, Illamasqua Melange Nail Varnish Review, Photos, Swatches 2 hours, 28 minutes ago

My first thought was that it looked very similar to two fingered salute. I love that polish and wore it on my wedding day.. the big copper glitters make it look antiqued.

How would you compare this to Chanel Raffinement (I remember you praising that quad). At first I dismissed this one because it didn’t have as much “dimension” as the Chanel but then when I looked at the swatches […]

That handle is absurd. $30 also pushes it for me with nail polish, let alone $50 — especially for a basic red when you get down to it.

How does this compare to your previously stated favorite overnight balm, kiss me tonight?

Sasha commented on the post, What type of beauty products do you splurge on? 6 months, 1 week ago

Foundation, eyeshadow, mascara, and lipstick.

I don’t purchase drugstore foundation because I don’t like not being able to try the shade and most of them tend to oxidize on oily skin. I’m picky about eyeshadow […]

Is Chanel Inspiration perm? I haven’t seen it around for a while now. I just picked up Intonation last weekend and I’m loving it!

I was also a bit surprised at how much the foundation impacts blush wear. I was […]

I’m NC 15-20 (nars siberia was too yellow for me) and Giorgio armani lasting silk #4 is a perfect match for me and they have .5 variations that are either pink or yellow toned if that’s what you need. MUFE has a […]

If you can spend a bit more for a nice base product, I have large pores and really like too faced primed and poreless for filling my pores (benefit porefessional sunk into the pores of my nose by mid-day). You can […]

Sasha commented on the post, Hit List: Best Liquid Foundation 7 months, 4 weeks ago

The best foundations I’ve tried so far are MUFE HD (shame the color wasn’t a match), Giorgio Armani lasting silk and Chanel Mat Lumiere.

MUFE HD just looks amazingly natural in terms of finish and provides […]

What would be your preference between this and givenchy rose dressing? I like the color of this more, a bit softer and not so bright-coral but I love the wear time of givenchy le rouge.

Thanks for this post Christine! I fell in love with Pink Sweat Pea in your favorites post and was sad that it was discontinued. Now I can fill my desire for a fuchsia with blue sparkle in the drugstore, awesome!

I like some of the softer more wearable every day pinks or softened corals etc but hate pastels and super bright colors that aren’t wearable most of the year or as typical daily looks. I don’t want to spend $60 on […]

Sasha commented on the post, What’s one lip color you feel like you can’t pull off? 8 months, 2 weeks ago

As far as personal comfort I’m still not comfortable wearing bright fuschias and pinks like Givenchy Rose Dressing.

As far as being really unflattering, I agree with pale beiges and peaches. I see them look […]

It’s a shame the purple performs so poorly, that taupe looks lovely!

I’d purchase either dr. jart or tarte BB cream and a chanel cream blush.

You’ve said before that cream blush isn’t your favorite formula in general but I’d like to hear your input on top 10 cream blushes and/or a comparison of different formulas. There’s a lot of really great products […]

Sasha commented on the post, What was the last beauty product you splurged on? 8 months, 4 weeks ago

Givenchy rose d’exception lipstick, love it! I wear it constantly because it’s a great nude and long-wearing even through eating and drinking, so it’s great for evenings out and dinner parties.

All these makeup companies trying to get us with pink/mauve combos! It’s a shame I couldn’t splash out and get Le Metier de Beaute’s Nouvelle Vague when it was out. I think I’ll just save my pennies and get Naked […]
