Nope, nothing to do with the control panel (I’d checked). I must have hit some weird sequence of keys while putting the batteries back in. I shut down and restarted and all is fixed now, thank heavens (because I […]

Just testing and trying to figure out why and at what sights my keyboardès wonky (and it seems it is at all the sites and I canèt seem to change the keyboard back to English….it appears to be set at English but […]

Absolutely. It’s hot and humid in summer here and cold and drying in winter. So in summer, I’m much more likely to use either a mineral powder foundation or a matte type of BB/CC Cream (the Smashbox CC cream is a […]

I bought this a few weeks ago in the Sephora 15% off VIB offer and I love it. Like you, I apply it before bed or if I’m home and not wearing lipstick. The metal tube is not the easiest to use but I have a metal […]

Mariella reviewed Metallic Brass 1 day, 8 hours ago

This is probably my most used pencil liner – I think I’ve got 4 of them on the go at any given time. This is a beautiful dark brown liner with bits of golden glitter that seem to brighten the whole effect this gives. It’s long-lasting, and while it can be easily smudged with a brush when first applied, it stays put all day. Easy to sharpen too,…[Read more]

Oh dear! I didn’t think I’d want this at all but Melancholia alone is enough to push me over the edge. Modern Pewter was sold out everywhere when I went to get it (MAC, please bring back these fabulous LE […]

Mariella reviewed Her Blooming Cheek 1 day, 10 hours ago

It’s a real shame that this blush isn’t permanent because it would be a huge hit and there must be loads of people who never got the chance to try it. It is almost terrifyingly bright in the pan but applied lightly and with a fluffy, soft brush, it gives the prettiest “walking in the cold” flush to the cheeks and looks unbelievably pretty against…[Read more]

Mariella commented on the post, 5 Fuchsia Lipsticks to Try for Summer 1 day, 17 hours ago

The fuchsia-est shades of lipstick I own are Guerlain Champs Elysees, MAC Impassioned and MAC Lustering. I love wearing Lustering and Champs Elysees but always feel a bit self-conscious wearing Impassioned as it […]

Mariella reviewed Agave Lip Mask 1 day, 21 hours ago

This stuff is amazing! I have a lot of other lip balms and treatments but for serious repair of chapped lips, this beats them all. The metal tube packaging does make this harder to use (a small pot would have been much better, as you could use a small spatula to get the product) but I use a metal bodkin (basically a really thick sewing needle) to…[Read more]

Thanks to Christine showing this shadow, I got it in the recent MAC repromote and I couldn’t be happier. It’s a dark, smokey khaki green-grey-brown mix that is irresistible for someone like me, who loves neutral shadows and it has a lovely golden-green sheen to it. When it was discontinued a few years ago, a reviewer at MUA wondered why MAC was…[Read more]

Mariella reviewed Velvet Touch Eyeliner 1 day, 21 hours ago

Before discovering the “new” liners from Sephora, Gosh Velvet Touch liners were my “holy grail”. They lasted on me better than UD’s 24/7 pencils and cost significantly less. I have several on the go in the shade Metallic Brass which is a deep cool-toned brown with golden flecks and I’ve also got single pencils in Ink Black, Truly Brown and Golden…[Read more]
