Definitely, I do. I have a playlist with several that I like, so that I can find a look easily in the morning. I’ve gotten some of my favorite looks from tutorials!

Laura commented on the post, Rant & Rave: L’Oreal 1 month ago

Rave – Love the pressed pigments,silkissime eye liners, and gel liners
Rant – The lipstick smell is nauseating. It’s a shame because I’d buy them if the smell wasn’t so overpowering and gross. The mascaras build […]

Generally yes, I think high end makeup is better, with some notable exceptions (such as Makeup Geek & Colour Pop). However, not all high end makeup is great. As a general rule the textures are better, the colors […]

I generally do change it. I have such a large stash of lipsticks that I generally take three or so in my purse (whatever matches the makeup look I’ve done for the day) and change it up as I feel like it. I think […]

I’m one of those that uses this as a sparkling gold topper, and for that purpose it’s lovely. I dot it on the center of my lid and I love it.

I use a damp beauty blender (squeezed out into a paper towel) to put pressed powder over my foundation where my pores are largest (around my t-zone). That fills in my pores nicely and stays well all day.

I keep the packaging for a little while to make sure I like the product (and don’t want to return it). If I know I’m keeping it I just get rid of it. I de-pot most shadows and get rid of that too (like the vice […]

Most recently it was Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner in violet ink. I wore it for the first time when visiting with family and didn’t realize I’d spent the day with streaks under my eyes where it flaked and melted off. […]

I can’t resist a good neutral palette :-) I don’t mind the black being a little lacking in pigment because I find it easier to work with dark colors with medium pigment. Yep, this is right up my alley.

Yep, I’ll be picking this one up :-) I loved last year’s palette, and I won’t be able to resist this one either.

I do mascara last and although it’s rare I forget to apply it, it has happened a few times. I work a good 25 minutes from home, so I can’t pop back on a break easily. I look tired all day when that happens. It’s […]

I’m excited for the eyeshadow palettes, and if it’s in keeping with their normal formula I’ll be buying 3 of them. I find that the glitter shadows work great with either a bit of the Too Faced glitter glue or […]

Definitely! I’ve learned more over the years, and I can afford higher quality products than I used to be able to. A few years ago I had never considered doing anything with my brows, and now it’s a daily thing. I […]

To be honest I don’t really get what classifies something as “matte” beyond not having shimmer. I have plenty of lipsticks that don’t have a shimmer finish but don’t have the word “matte” in them, and some that […]

I can’t see that ever happening. Makeup is a perpetual love of mine!
