Ooops! I mis-read it as “eye colour”. Eyeliner??? non-red toned dark brown shades with some bronze-y sheen to them – Gosh Metallic Brass, Nars Baalbek (so gorgeous) and Sephora Diving in Malaysia are 2 perfect […]

Post-It notes make a really good, cheap “eyeshadow shield” – get a small one and place it under your eye before you start applying the problem shadow. I have also found the tape trick to work really well but […]

Just one product? Probably fragrance – Aerin Rose or Atelier Mistral Patchouli and Grand Neroli. If it’s several products, probably another Marc Jacobs liner ((O)Vert), the Nars Dual Intensity eyeshadow palette […]

Not surprisingly, the 2 shadows I love the best in this are ones I have many dupes for (most of them with ratings at least as high as the ones in this quad). Easy pass for me. As Katherine T. said, at this […]

The colours in this palette all look so muddy and dull. Maybe it’s the photo; maybe it’s the products themselves but this has no appeal to me at all, especially as a “Spring” palette.

Depending on what they need (not everyone needs concealer, for example), I’d recommend the Urban Decay Naked palette (even though it’s pricey, newbie or not, I think everyone would really enjoy having and using […]

I’d love to see the Baby Glow “foundation” – that’s the one product that really interests me; the Meteorites blush looks lovely too but the last thing I need or even want at this point is more blush!

Mariella commented on the post, What one makeup palette do you wish you had purchased? 3 days, 14 hours ago

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.

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 […]
