Mariella commented on the post, Win It! LORAC Pro 2 Eyeshadow Palette! 15 hours, 4 minutes ago

Not sure if my first comment will count to as to how I’d wear this, well just looking at the photo, I can see that Chrome would be the first colour I’d go for – all over the lid, with Buff in the inner corner and […]

Because we can no longer get Lorac in Canada, I would really, REALLY love to win this palette!

The first Vice palette. I often seen gorgeous shades I know I would have liked in the Dupe List, whilst looking for dupes for new colours you review, Christine, that I like and for which I wonder if I have dupes.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, cool
Best beauty gift you’ve received? Sephora gift cards – I don’t think anyone would presume to buy me beauty products although a dear friend did get me this amazing hand cream […]

I’m so much the same with the eyeshadow in the same shade. I’ve often commented here that (a) it may be called by another name but I seem to keep buying the same 4 or 5 shades over and over again and (b) often […]

Hair care stuff, foundation (I’d like to find a cheaper one that works well but I haven’t), sunscreen and moisturizers/primers containing sunscreen. And looking at the replies from others, it occurs to me that I […]

I was wondering if it was Tilda! I thought it was a look-alike!

Love the size and variety in the palettes but I doubt I’ll buy these. For someone really into Nars and somewhat new to the line and maybe someone who travels a lot, these would be perfect. I’m leery of the […]

Mariella commented on the post, MAC Leap Mineralize Eyeshadow Duo Review, Photos, Swatches 2 days, 13 hours ago

Carrie, a few of the MES have been really good. MAC used to have a duo called “Illusionary/Burning Ambition” and it was really good. Same for a few others, including Golden Gaze. But I always approach them with […]

F??? Oh my, MAC what are you doing? Mind you, both swatches look sort of “F-ish” – neither one looks to be very pigmented or “integrated” (glitter and base shade). Nice, in a way, to be seeing a whole lot of […]

Mariella commented on the post, How has your makeup collection evolved? 2 days, 18 hours ago

It’s more like the result of some major explosion than it is an actual ordered evolution! But I now purchase products with more of an idea of whether or not I’ll actually love and use them (with a few greedy […]

ooops, forgot to add that Alasdhair is the big surprise here. On your lips, it looks so lovely and nothing at all like how it looks in the tube. But I’ve so many similar shades and, again, at this price-point, I […]

At $32 a pop, lipsticks really need to wow me both with the colour (which is a matter of personal preference and your own natural colouring) and with quality. These do neither. I wouldn’t pay $10 for them, let […]

Oh my – I’m loving the idea of a tinted lip oil and Clarins’s face oils and their lip care products are so excellent that I’m hoping this product will be as good. The palette – I’m so weak for them, though this […]

It’s weird – a few of the shades I thought would be way too warm for me and look really warm in the pans actually seem to swatch cooler and so, for me, much more appealing. And I am very much loving Castor Grey, […]

I’m not particularly good with liquid or gel eyeliners but what I have been liking (assuming the question isn’t about the liquid eyeliner “pens”, which I’ve yet to try) is a bent eyeliner brush. I have one from […]
