MAC for sure, with NARS and Clarins coming in a close second!

Christine, I can’t tell from the photos – do the need sharpening or are they twist up (I hope it’s the latter but I fear it’s the former). As I never was able to get Spark of Envy, I would like to get this one but […]

Either Lise Watier Virtual Lipliner (it’s invisible) or MAC Dervish (when it comes to a coloured lip liner, Dervish is all I own and it’s all I need)

Darn – I forgot my serious answer. Fall is my favourite time of year and while I don’t really keep au courant with the makeup collections (it’s more what I see here at Temptalia than actually following magazine […]

To paraphrase James Taylor, “Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall, I just want to buy it ALL and I’ll be there, yes I will – ain’t it good to know you’re gonna spend….”

Mariella commented on the post, What color of eyeliner do you wear the most? 3 days, 2 hours ago

Christine, I was just thinking about this question (or, more rightly, your answer – which I knew would be “teal’) and I was wondering….in an average week, how often do you get to wear the makeup YOU want to wear […]

Sigh, swoon, sigh – Golden Khaki, you are so beautiful. You have some pretty nice looking friends up there but you are the prettiest of this particular bunch!

Mariella commented on the post, Illamasqua Once… Collection for Fall 2014 4 days ago

614, 644, 554 (especially lovely) are so desirable and there are several other shades that are just gorgeous. I have to say, the numbering (like Inglot’s system) frustrates me – I do better with names – but I can […]

So many of the shades that interested me the most (ha – the “boring neutrals”) got very poor ratings (a D for Defy :( ) that I’m thinking twice about buying this but a few of the shades (to my surprise, Bondage, […]
