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….”

Christine, I was just thinking about this question (or, more rightly, your answer – which I knew would be “teal’) and I was wondering….in an average week, how often do you get to wear the makeup YOU want to wear […]

Sigh, swoon, sigh – Golden Khaki, you are so beautiful. You have some pretty nice looking friends up there but you are the prettiest of this particular bunch!

All a bit too orange and sort of “dirty” toned for me, with the exception of maybe one or two of the eyeshadows.

LSD looks amazing in the pencil but I think I might spring for MAC Industrial instead or check to see how it compares to one of the Sephora pencils I have (Galaxy Girl, I think).

614, 644, 554 (especially lovely) are so desirable and there are several other shades that are just gorgeous. I have to say, the numbering (like Inglot’s system) frustrates me – I do better with names – but I can […]

Christine, I hate to be bringing errors and glitches to your attention but I’m wondering about the dupes for “Undone” – I wonder if some are in there by mistake. Some that you’ve rated at 95% are PINK and look […]

Christine, some of the links to dupes are a bit mixed up – “Reign” took me to Bondage and “Bondage” took me to Defy (this is in the first set of links, with the description of each shade). Other shades might be […]

So many of the shades that interested me the most (ha – the “boring neutrals”) got very poor ratings (a D for Defy :( ) that I’m thinking twice about buying this but a few of the shades (to my surprise, Bondage, […]

I’m lucky not to have watery or teary eyes but getting things to last on the waterline has always been a challenge. So far, the most amazing for that has been the IT Cosmetics gel liner in the pot. I have a small […]

Alicia, are you talking about their pencil ones or the ones in the pots? I have one of the latter (Rich Plum) and was blown away by how well it lasted on the waterline.

Thanks for this, Kelsey. I’ve only ever tried one liner from Annabelle and it was hard to the point of unusable, and really awful. I will look for these smudgeliners!

For foundation, either RT Expert Face Brush or the Shiseido foundation brush. For concealer, a Sephora Pro Cream Shadow brush (I had hubby cut the handle short for me! It’s an amazing brush)
Eyes: Sonia Kashuk […]
