Laura commented on the post, Who first introduced you to makeup? 4 months ago

My mom was the one who physically put makeup in my hands (or at least within reach), but she has no real love it. My love of makeup probably started with Kevyn Aucoin. Pretty sure Making Faces is directly […]

Laura commented on the post, Hit List: Most Long-Wearing Nail Polish 5 months, 1 week ago

I have no idea because I tend to change my polish every two or three days anyway. Sometimes I’m on the phone at work for hours at a time, and I can totally type with wet nails. :-)

I do think that top coat is […]

Laura commented on the post, What is your current go-to my-lips-but-better (MLBB) shade? 5 months, 3 weeks ago

Another vote for Dior Lip Glow! It gives me a way better shade than tinted lip balms, plus it actually works like a lip balm on me and keeps my dry lips hydrated.

Why don’t I have this in Coral?!? I love the pink one, but I just looked up Coral and I’m dying for it! Do you have the original one that came out in like 2012, or the new one that was part of Dior’s Spring 2014 collection?

I love the finish of these! I recently got Cameron by Julep, and it looks like a similar finish. They call it a “stardust” finish, a matte glitter. Cameron is more lilac/silver than Trilliant, but they do remind […]

Laura commented on the post, Hit List: Best Matte Lipstick Formula 5 months, 3 weeks ago

As much as I love the matte look, I rarely feel like taking the time to make it work. Dry, flaky lips are not your friend when you wear matte lipstick!

Definitely my favorite though is the Sephora Cream Lip […]

Laura commented on the post, How important is the quantity of product for the price? 5 months, 3 weeks ago

I definitely agree with a lot of what’s being said. The value of quantity vs. price is way more important with, say, an eye cream, than with a blush that I’ll never finish even if I use it every day. But it […]

One thing I love about the packaging is that the magnetic closure actually feels really secure. I love the idea in theory, but I’m always so worried a magnet will come loose in my purse!

But I’ve only had it a […]

I just got Envious yesterday, and I love it. I had the same thought as you, it’s lightly hydrating but not quite as hydrating as they claim. The colors are all gorgeous, but even if I picked my own color, I still […]

Laura commented on the post, Have you ever slept in your makeup? 5 months, 3 weeks ago

In my early 20s, I probably did more often than not, but I’ve gotten way better in the last year, and way, way better in the last few months.

What really helped me get better at it was finding a cleanser I […]

Anyone else only able to think about Vamp Willow in Buffy when you see green shadow like this?

Not that it’s a bad thing! She wears it well, and shows that green is actually a totally wearable shade!

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate. Eve Lom Cleansing Balm (yes I know it has mineral oil in it, I don’t care, it’s amazing. Though probably not amazing enough that I’ll buy it after the one I got from work runs out, […]

Laura commented on the post, What are your top three skincare products right now? 6 months ago

I’ve been obsessed with cleansing balms lately! I haven’t tried the Clinique one yet, but I keep hearing awesome things about it. I think that’ll be the next one I get.

Laura commented on the post, How often do you wear waterproof mascara? 6 months, 1 week ago

Just about never. Occasionally if I get one from work (like the Clinique High Impact Waterproof, which I liked way more than I expected), but I never really seek it out. I just like working with non-waterproof […]

I am a lucky, lucky woman and tend to get a lot of mascara through my job, so I always have at least six or seven lying around. Generally, if I know it’s not my kind of mascara, I won’t open it and I’ll just save […]

I totally agree, I always want to love blue shades. I would totally wear a killer blue eyeshadow! The “browbone” shade is what really throws me, even if it were higher quality, that actual shade for the brow bone […]

I actually have a huge preference for shorter handled brushes, so I tend to like sets. I actually just got a great little Smashbox brush set at the Rack. Five brushes (all five of which I like and use) for $15 […]

Definitely brows. Then, in order of importance vs. time – concealer, blush, mascara.

I always have at least five different lip products in my purse, so I’ve definitely been known to leave the house with just my […]

Laura commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Eyeshadow Pans 6 months, 3 weeks ago

In the past, I’ve always been more drawn to premade palettes (easy! great colors! value!) but with the purchase of my first Z Palette recently, I’m hardcore switching over. Less packaging (less waste), and I get […]
