Mariella commented on the post, Storage Solutions: How I Organized My Eyeliners 1 hour, 1 minute ago

I’m always nervous about glass in my bathroom (I’m a klutz when I’m rushing in the mornings and just a klutz generally!) and I like something shorter, so I can see the names of the liners better. Right now, I’m […]

I’ve only got a sample of this powder – in the shade Light (I’m fair but certainly not the fairest of the fair so good luck to the many women with lighter skin than mine – you may not find a colour match), so I can’t comment on whether or not this is in a “travel friendly” container (important with loose powders) but I absolutely LOVE the results…[Read more]

Hmmm- this is a tough one. I’d say Vasanti (Canadian brand) Brighten Up Enzymatic scrub (they don’t call it a scrub – they call it something else) – every bit as good as ExfoliKate, if not better, but a fraction […]

These colours really appeal to me and the look you did with them is stunning but at this price, I’d want more than a B- rating before spending. I’m going to try to find similar shades in my stash. Odd that they […]

I thought I’d love the look of Poison, but on the nails it doesn’t look all that nice. But Distortion (which I didn’t think I’d like) looks AMAZING!

Rivoli is next on my “to buy” list and every time Christine comments about how much she likes it, I slice a day off my next trip to the Chanel counter! :)

I’d like it to last a bit longer (and have SPF or come in 2 versions – one with sun protection and one without so when I find one I like I can have a day time and bed time option)

I love the 130 also. Being shortsighted, I practically have my nose to the mirror when I apply makeup so the short handle is such a boon. I actually had my husband cut the ends off the handles of my Sephora […]

Christine, it’s only an issue at this site and while I did initially clear the cookies, I’ve not done so since so I am thinking it’s a glitch at Temptalia. And it’s not a huge big deal, since I do seem able to get […]

This will be an easy one for me to “pass” – I’ve got colours similar to the 2 I really like (the dark purple and the top left shade) and as I never wear pink shadow (and have maybe 3 anyway that came in pre-made […]

Ditto what Christine said (though to me, Copperplate and Coquette both seem darker than taupe, which is why I didn’t mention Satin Taupe either; I think I’ve got me a few too many taupes but it never stops me […]

Pretty much the same as you, Christine, though sometimes I do it the other way round – apply with my finger and then blend in with a clean stippling brush.

RE my logging in issues – things are fixed (sort of). […]

It’s a really good lip balm, and I don’t say that lightly. The tube is a real pain, however, but I’ve got a thick and blunk short knitting needle that I use and I dip the needle (more like a thin spatula, almost) […]

I listed Inglot 349 in the earlier “5 Shades of Warm Taupe” listing but I guess it’s cool so I’ll have to re-root for it here, along with Inglot 434, which I got earlier this month and just love. I’m thinking that […]
