Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool-toned
Favorite lip combo of the moment? I don’t really do “combos” but lately, I’m back to my long time favourite of MAC Craving. If I feel I need a lip pencils, it’s always […]

Mariella commented on the post, When you find a holy grail product, do you stop the search? 10 hours, 48 minutes ago

Not really. I may ease off for a time but there are always new formulas or breakthroughs in skin care that will grab my interest and make me want at least to try. I think the only place I have stopped is in the […]

Mariella commented on the post, Dior Peach Splendor Blush Review, Photos, Swatches 1 day, 1 hour ago

I’m not a peach blush person (it’s too warm and unnatural looking on me) but this LOOKS so pretty in the pan with that lovely logo embossed on it. Can you comment on the brush, Christine? I often wonder if the […]

It’s weird – I’ve been wondering for a while now if any “dupes” ever garner the 100% rating for how close they are to the product being “duped” and today, I see that Lorac’s Plum shadow gets a 100% for being a […]

Yep, Midnight Cowboy Rides Again is one they used to love to put in just about every single palette and it’s basically unwearable unless you like having glitter all over your face (I suppose going out in the […]

I was kinda hoping Green Iron would suck so I wouldn’t want it. Sigh….”Temptalia recommends” makes it impossible to get this out of my mind!

My biggest issues with UD are eyeshadow glitter fallout, the stupidity of the build your own palettes and their penchant for vulgar names. I love me my shimmer and glitter but I prefer that it not rain down all […]

No, I realize that – the Country Western one and the Rock and Roll one were only available from TF (and possibly ULTA) but the thing is that Too Faced doesn’t deliver to Canada either (nor does UD, so far as I […]

I agree. This isn’t the first time I’ve felt like a huge part of the market (not just in Canada but other countries too) are basically being treated like they don’t matter at all. There was a Too Faced Palette […]

I’d made up my mind to get this palette (big surprise, hunh? The idea that I have any willpower at all is purely a fantasy, but then the penny dropped and I realized that this is exclusive to ULTA! GRRR! The […]

Mariella commented on the post, Sneak Peek: Giorgio Armani Eye Tints Photos & Swatches 4 days, 1 hour ago

It’s funny – some of the European luxury brands (Chanel, Clarins and Guerlain come to mind for me) cost about the same here as they do in the US or maybe a buck or 3 more, whereas Stila and some other companies […]

…and scratch my back in that place I can’t reach AND take out the trash too! I feel the same about the price – prices just keep climbing and climbing, it seems.

I never would have thought Linen Khaki would have such a pronounced green tint to it just from looking at it in the pan. FYI, when I click on the dupes for it (in the first part of the review), I get one of the […]

Mariella commented on the post, How do you keep your skin hydrated during winter? 4 days, 10 hours ago

I use facial oils at night – Clarins Blue Orchid is a favourite but I sort of cycle through several of them – as my first layer and then apply a heavier night cream. In the day, I use a cream formula with SPF (Ole […]

At almost $100, I will happily stick with my UD Naked2 palette, which seems to contain colours very much like the ones I like best in that first palette.

Mariella commented on the post, How many cleansers do you use to remove your makeup? 4 days, 23 hours ago

I vary between using 1 or 2 cleansers, mostly depending on how much eye makeup I’m wearing and also the nature of the cleaner I’m using (some are better at getting off my concealer and mascara (if I’m wearing it) […]
