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 don’t necessarily like how they look on the lips for the most part, as I find they emphasize lines or any tiny bit of dryness. I also find they wear off in a way that leaves a ring on the inside of my lips and […]

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!

Laura Mercier radiance foundation primer…nothing else makes my foundation “stick” as well (I have crazy ridiculous oily skin that makes foundation slide off) while not breaking me out.

I listen to audio books on audible :-)

Oh my yes. I’ve had hair dye ruin bath mats (OK, not makeup). I now clear those out before I color my hair! I de-pot most shadows, and when I was first learning how to do that I broke an Urban Decay black […]

Fine, limp hair. I’m always looking for volumizers.

Chanel eyeshadow quads. In my opinion they aren’t worth the investment. For the price I want all four colors to be pigmented, easy to blend, last well, etc. Many of the shadows are sheer and fade quickly, and I […]

I meant if you DO want something soft. Oops.

Take a look at MAC See Sheer. It’s very wearable if you don’t want something soft.
