Funny that you should mention Guerlain fragrances. I cannot wear them – any of them. But I love the mystique of L’heure Bleu and its history so I console myself with Guerlain’s Rouge Automatique in L’heure Bleu instead.

Mariella commented on the post, 5 Eyeshadows in Shades of Fall 14 hours, 59 minutes ago

Some of my favourites to use in fall are MAC’s All That Glitters paired with Mulch or Twinks (but mainly Mulch). I also love Stila’s La Douce – such a wonderful colour for autumn. And the Clarins Forest quad is […]

Beauty classics? Probably Coty loose face powder – it is one of the few things I can think of that’s been around for decades and DECADES and still has a huge loyal following! I’d probably say the same about Erno […]

Oh, I get it! I think we probably all get it. And I bet most of us are exactly the same (and the funny thing is that even though I end up bringing more than I need, I ALWAYS seem to forget something important).

While I wouldn’t say I take twice as much as I need, I do take a fair bit (depending on how I’m travelling – if it’s by car, I don’t worry about trimming down how much I bring but if I’m flying – different story). […]

Clove? Cloves? TF has a gorgeous shadow called Cloves in (I think) the Smokey Eye palette. It’s a beaut! It might have been smart to put that exact shade in THIS palette. A few of the colours look very desirable […]

Love the mirror but wouldn’t spend that much on it. I can find Hello Kitty stuff (knock off, probably) at a lot of the dollar/junk stores in the malls.

If I won a Sephora gift card, I’d probably buy half of the new Nars shadows (can’t recall their names) and several of the new lipsticks (Janet for me and Audrey for my daughter and that’s just for starters!) And […]

I can understand store “exclusives” but I do with TooFaced would consider that many, many of their loyal customers (like a certain Janie Canuk who has practically every one of their 9 pan palettes and many of […]

Mariella commented on the post, What’s your favorite way to apply foundation? 2 days, 17 hours ago

I also like to dot the foundation around my face and then blend using either the RT Expert Face Brush or Shiseido’s small, slightly angled foundation brush. Less waste than applying to the back of my hand and […]

Christine, I can’t tell from the photos – do the need sharpening or are they twist up (I hope it’s the latter but I fear it’s the former). As I never was able to get Spark of Envy, I would like to get this one but […]

Either Lise Watier Virtual Lipliner (it’s invisible) or MAC Dervish (when it comes to a coloured lip liner, Dervish is all I own and it’s all I need)

Darn – I forgot my serious answer. Fall is my favourite time of year and while I don’t really keep au courant with the makeup collections (it’s more what I see here at Temptalia than actually following magazine […]

To paraphrase James Taylor, “Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall, I just want to buy it ALL and I’ll be there, yes I will – ain’t it good to know you’re gonna spend….”
