Maggie commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Waterproof Eyeliner 1 week, 3 days ago

The Jordana and prestige total intensity run on me. Waterproof and water-resistant are my go to’s. Brands like UD, NYX, Milani and Rimmel also run on me. For pencils, I like sephora contour, Stila smudge sticks, […]

I’m curious too. I wonder how Kat Von D would use this on herself. Or how anyone would use ALL the shades on herself.

These won’t be available at Sephora?

Going to keep an eye on these–love the color schemes and idea so far.

Maggie commented on the post, What’s your favorite beauty-related way to pamper yourself? 1 month, 1 week ago

Oh, a hot shower for me too! I also love hair cuts with a hairstylist who knows what she’s doing (especially when they wash my hair!). I count yoga, exercise, hikes, sleep, and massages as beauty-pampering bc I […]

Maggie commented on the post, Do you plan out your makeup looks in advance? 1 month, 2 weeks ago

Planning sounds soo…methodical. So nope not usually. I would usually decide vaguely on my look beforehand depending on my outfit, event and activities (i.e. like purple smokey eyes, or red lips). But I don’t set […]

Maggie commented on the post, How do you apply under-eye concealer? 1 month, 2 weeks ago

I pat on IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye with my ring finger–the warmth from my finger seems to help it melt in. If needed, I blend with the pointed part of a Beauty Blender but I usually just set with powder.

That’s my question too! Christine, do you plans to review any of these?

Profile picture of Maggie

Christine–do you know where these are made in (i.e. country)? I’m amazed quite frankly that these are only 5 bucks a pop!

I was thinking the same. I’m definitely getting this.

Hairstylist for sure. Maybe someone for brows too. A makeup artist would be nice for special occasions so I wouldn’t call it “routine.”

Maggie commented on the post, What’s your advice to someone who’s in a makeup rut? 1 month, 3 weeks ago

When I’m in a makeup rut, I look for inspiration from the media (magazines, movies, tv, etc.) as well as beauty blogs. I pay especially close attention to people who have similar coloring or features to me and try […]

Very nice but too dark for me. I’ll have to check out the other colors.

Maggie commented on the post, How do you take care of your eye area? 2 months, 1 week ago

I’m going to have to try out the Neutogena tube makeup remover you use–thank you for mentioning that. I can’t use the dual-phase Neutrogena oil-free makeup remover bc that REALLY irritates my eyelids. Clinique […]

Wow! Thank you so much for the detailed response! It’s super helpful and answers why I’ve been drawn to the neutral-cool browns, taupes, and berries–in my collection. I would LOVE LOVE to know what sort of MUG […]
