Mariella reviewed Tender Caramel 12 hours, 18 minutes ago

I got Tender Caramel ages ago and I’m pretty sure that, unfortunately, it was limited edition although this is another shade that L’Oreal would have been wise to add to the permanent collection (instead of the 2 or 3 almost identical shades of shiny beige they have!). This is a lovely metallic/shimmery champagne-y taupe shade. It is great on its…[Read more]

Mariella commented on the post, How do you take care of your eye area? 1 day, 4 hours ago

Always an eye cream – one with SPF in the daytime (they’re getting harder and harder to find, especially here in Canada but even in the US, my very favourite one, from Clarins, has been discontinued). I do like […]

Haul: Clinique Moisture Surge mask (I think that’s the name), some Jack Black hand cream for my son in law, a Caudalie gift set for a friend for her Xmas present, a Sephora liner – finally got Snakeskin Dress and […]

This is a tough one but it’s probably the Urban Decay Pulp Fiction palette, not only because I got it on sale (19 bucks Canadian is hard to beat!) but mostly because it’s just such an excellent neutral palette.

It would have to be my flat iron. I realize that’s probably not what this question was hoping for but a good flat-iron (first a CHI and recently another brand, the name of which I can’t remember) has changed my […]

Until other people started commenting on it, I hadn’t even realized this was an “all matte” palette. I’m not all that crazy about matte…I mean, I have a lot of good matte shadows but I do love me some pearl and […]

Mariella commented on the post, What is your current go-to lipstick? 3 days, 5 hours ago

It’s a toss-up between MAC Craving or Plumful, and IT Cosmetics CC Lip Serum (it’s really just a gloss) in the shade “Love”. I like the latter because I can reapply it anywhere, even without a mirror.

Amber, I can vouch for the Eden UDPP – I’ve used it for years and love it for that “blanking” effect. MAC Painterly does similar but for really long days or when it’s hot and humid, UDPP lasts longer.

Wow – the swatches look really good-quality and, let’s face it, I think I NEED something called “Super Mom” – heck, even if it were a dupe for CARBON, I would feel entitled to own it! I eager to see the reviews […]

Oh gosh – I’ve loved makeup for as long as I can remember. Waaaay back in the dark ages, it was probably the availability of Mary Quant cosmetics (I remember a highlight/contour kit of hers that I am sure I wore […]

That’s what I thought too, Christine – and it surprised me. I thought it would be a lot more orange (and therefore unwearable for me). If I get this palette, I probably won’t wear the bronzer, simply because I […]

No – I think it’s just evidence of my slightly out of control-ness and my unfortunate habit of frequently buying the same sort of colours over and over again…I wish I had more will-power and the common sense to […]

Really and truly, someone should just lock me away for my own protection. I have 15 dupes and possible dupes – yes, FIFTEEN – for Stun alone (I haven’t even checked the other shades yet) and even so, I really want […]
