Mariella commented on the post, Sneak Peek: Urban Decay x Pulp Fiction Makeup Look & Swatches 22 hours, 21 minutes ago

What a fabulous look. The palette looks filled with very dupe-able shadows but I can see it being a practical one to have for work and for people like me, who never tire of neutral eye looks. I think my answer to […]

I can’t really answer this since I use both pretty equally/evenly, I think. Often, even if I’m using a palette, I still have to reach for a single shadow or another palette (pre-made or made by me) to get a […]

Mariella commented on the post, What is your least favorite part of your beauty routine? 1 day, 22 hours ago

It would have to be drying my hair. I’d love to have straight, glossy hair but I don’t. Pretty much no matter what I use, I have to flat iron it and trying to do the back is especially “challenging” as it’s […]

Mariella reviewed All Soft Conditioner 2 days, 13 hours ago

I have both the lighter conditioner and the heavier conditioning cream and like them both. I have thick, coarse hair that needs all the moisture it can get to look shiny and sleek, which is my preferred look and not at all what my hair wants to do naturally. So these All Soft conditioners really help a lot. The smell is pleasant too. Neither one…[Read more]

Mariella reviewed Comfort Zone 2 days, 13 hours ago

I wanted this palette for ages and was so happy when it finally arrived in Canada (it took quite a while!). This is an amazingly affordable and surprisingly versatile palette and contains dupes of quite a few high end shadows (several of which I nearly bought until I realized how close they were to the shadows in this palette). While it is lacking…[Read more]

Christine, is this over-top of the blush or above it, higher on your cheekbones? This looks so luminous and lovely (I’m almost glad that the Sephora near me has a VERRRY limited selection of Becca cosmetics or […]

As much as I like Creme de corps, I actually miss that it’s not scented, which surprised me.

Mariella commented on the post, Hit List: Best Fuchsia Lipstick 2 days, 16 hours ago

Probably Guerlain Rouge Automatique in Champs Elysees. I think Bite describes Vigne as “fuchsia” but I don’t really think it is at all. But if it is, that would probably be my best but mostly because it’s not a […]

Okay – this is good to know. Even though I don’t need another blush, I think I will pick up Dainty the next time I’m at the MAC counter (honestly, though – I wish they’d just repromote Subtle Breeze….and Jardin […]

Mariella commented on the post, What was the best advice you’ve received on skincare? 2 days, 22 hours ago

Same here – wear sunscreen and wear it all the time! I truly believe it’s the only real “anti-aging” product out there. In addition to using one that you can afford to use liberally, use one that you can apply […]

Mariella commented on the post, NARS Night Series Eyeliners Reviews, Photos, Swatches 3 days, 10 hours ago

I have Nars Snake Eyes and it’s a cream, not a pencil (there seems to be a typo or coding error in the reviews) and I’d love similar in pencil form but, to be honest, I think Sephora’s own Galaxy Girl (which they […]

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool-toned
Favorite cream blush formula? the only one I’ve used in years is Sephora’s Double Contouring blush so I guess maybe it has to be my favourite, by default. I wanted to […]

Christine, is this pinker/cooler than MAC’s Early Morning blush? I kick myself regularly for getting it instead of Subtle Breeze and I’m always looking for a Mineralized Blush that might be similar, with the same […]

Mariella commented on the post, Chanel Les 4 Ombres in New Variations for July 2014 4 days, 11 hours ago

Some of these really appeal to me (Gabrielle, Mademoiselle, Rivoli….) but all look pretty dupeable (some even look like dupes of one another!) and knowing the iffy quality of some of Chanel quads, especially […]

so pretty on you but I fear it’s probably too red toned/warm for me. I’ll save my pennies for Jardin Perdu.

I was somewhat interested in getting Cheeky Bugger but wasn’t prepared to jump through hoops to get it. Now, having seen it next to Dainty, I actually prefer Dainty because it has that lovely sheen that some MAC […]
