I entirely don’t need this and it’s an easy “skip” for me but I’m “loving” it nevertheless as I just generally love Nars eyeshadows and their palettes, which are such a great way to get a lot of different shadows […]

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Favorite warm-toned lipstick? you’re joking, right? I guess the warmest toned lipstick I have is Guerlain Habit Rouge
Favorite cool-toned blush? just the one? Oh dear…well, […]

A few of the shades look VERY “wantable” but so many others look exactly like colours they’ve had in past (in their palettes) but with new names on them and that’s something I don’t like about TF – they seem to […]

It’s IT CC cream for me as well, largely because of the high level of SPF in it which means I can wear just ONE product on my face when it’s hot and humid and steamy, rather than having to layer on several […]

I was so happy finally to get Gilded Envy to add to my collection of taupe/pewter type shadows. This shade has never been released in Canada but I found it easily at the Walmart in Buffalo when we went over the border a few days ago. It’s a beautifuly neutral pewter shade that’s a bit more metallic than I’d ideally like but not so much that I’m…[Read more]

I thought Pinch o Peach WAS permanent until they just all of a sudden discontinued it; same with Frankly Scarlet and Pink Swoon – I thought all of those had been permanent shades that just got phased out. I am […]

D+ – well, that’s not very good now, is it??? I thought this would be the sort of tarnished green/gold that I just love but it looks quite orange in the photos, to say nothing of the fact that it seems to be a […]

Grace, I find the Naked on the Run palette to be a great time and space and “thinking” saver too. As I said, it’s missing a lot of my favourite types of shadows but, in a pinch and for the convenience, I can live […]

Mariella commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Hourglass 2 days ago

I hate that they discontinued their old eyeshadow duos (and before I was able to purchase Suede and Gypsy!). I sort of hate the price/hype-i-ness of the whole “ambient light roadshow”. I have 4 of the original […]

I’m loving reading this. I’m always so curious to see what others take and what I can glean from tips of other travelling makeup lovers. We just got in half an hour ago from a weekend get-away by car which makes […]

Ooops, I realized now, re-reading this, that I meant Ursa Major, not Subra (though I like Subra plenty). I was typing on my tablet, which I hate using, and couldn’t face fiddling around to find the right names of […]

Chanel, because they don’t flood the market with new releases every 5 minutes and so when they do a new release, it’s exciting. UD because they always have stuff that I find hard to resist. And MAC, because I have […]

My list:
Kauai for sure
Habanera duo
Kalahari duo
Nouveau Monde duo
Lhasa single
Subra (I agree with you on this one too, Christine
Himalia
Baalbek eye paint
the pressed setting powder (I’m away from home […]

Very weird but I ended up returning Catfight (and I rarely return products) but I absolutely LOVE F-Bomb, despite the name. I wanted to get 69 (name issues again) to replace Catfight but they were sold out and […]

I don’t much like them cooked into desserts and such…eating them raw is what I love. For baking/desserts, I’m much more likely to buy a small bucket of frozen sour or sweet cherries (depending on what the recipe […]

Haul: Kat von D Shade+Light eyeshadow palette

Weekend plans: We’re heading over the border on Sunday for an overnight stay. Hope to do a bit of garden clean up before that

Favourite fruit: I love all summer […]

Nars Andromeda on most of the “mobile lid” with MAC Silver Dawn on the outer third and into the outer crease. Seems an odd combo but it worked nicely and wasn’t overly dark. I used Sephora Malted Milkshake to fade […]

I agree, Christine. I think UD is hard to top. I do like the MUFE Nudes You Need palette but MUFE doesn’t have a large # of palettes in their lineup so I can’t really say they’re “the best”. Too Faced comes in […]
