Mariella commented on the post, Has your beauty routine changed as you’ve gotten older? 9 hours, 21 minutes ago

I beg to differ. I’ve just hit my 60′s (yikes) and I indulge in all the shimmery eyeshadows I want and blushes with a sheen to them as well. If anything, I find matte shadows to be aging. The Naked palettes – I […]

Mariella commented on the post, Has your beauty routine changed as you’ve gotten older? 19 hours, 51 minutes ago

I used to like a totally matte face, except for my lips. As I’ve got older, I’ve actually fallen more in love with pearl/frosted eye products and highlighters and like a dewier finish to my foundations. I still […]

Grabby hands are starting to twitch again but I think I’ve got dupes of the shades I like best (though I knew from your first photos giving us a look at these, that I’d love this one). I find it really […]

How on earth did I miss Gilded Envy? I’m going to have to look for it and hope it’s available in Canada. Some of my favourites are the right hand side shadow in Guerlain’s Les Fumes quad, Stila Cloud and MAC […]

I’m a big fan of the Ready eyeshadows so I’ll probably pick up The Magic Touch, The Hollywood Ending and maybe The Good Life and The Comfort Zone.

I’m another huge fan of Mary Lou-manizer. I also really love Guerlain’s LE Cruel Gardenia and MAC’s LE By Candlelight. I also like Clarins Instant Light Complexion Perfector/Illuminating Base (new name/packing and […]

Pretty but I much prefer the one you showed yesterday. I’ll probably only be able to justify buying one of these quads (if that!) so I think it’s more likely to be the one from yesterday (I’ve already forgotten the name!)

Okay, disregard that question – I see it’s come up in the discussion. Glad this is permanent!

Oh – meant to ask if this is permanent. I looked through the review but didn’t see mention of it (probably missed it).

How beautiful and how nice (or not nice for my wallet) is it that these are such excellent quality because Chanel’s quads can be notoriously iffy in quality and when you’re laying out that much cash, it really […]

I very much dislike the whole “nude lip” look so it’s not surprising that I don’t like these lip products at all but, despite the iffy ratings, I like the look of the eye shadow trio though I think I have dupes of […]

Like several others who’ve replied, I like the eye shadow trio (and that’s something for me since I tend to avoid red-toned/burgundy shadows) but the lip products are just way too bright for my taste. I do hope […]

Haul: At Shoppers Drug Mart I picked up the Shiseido eye cream with SPF since I can’t get my beloved Clarins SPF eye cream any longer and I also grabbed Maybelline Downtown Brown loose eyeshadow pigment and […]

I had to laugh, reading this. My last “job interview” was in November of 2013 and, because of board of education policy where I teach, every “long term” position (which means 10 or more consecutive days in the […]

I haven’t tried the Take the Day Off oil (didn’t even know it existed, to tell you the truth). I need to check out this product as I really like the other 2 Take the Day Off products I have.
