Rivoli is next on my “to buy” list and every time Christine comments about how much she likes it, I slice a day off my next trip to the Chanel counter! :)

I’d like it to last a bit longer (and have SPF or come in 2 versions – one with sun protection and one without so when I find one I like I can have a day time and bed time option)

I love the 130 also. Being shortsighted, I practically have my nose to the mirror when I apply makeup so the short handle is such a boon. I actually had my husband cut the ends off the handles of my Sephora […]

Christine, it’s only an issue at this site and while I did initially clear the cookies, I’ve not done so since so I am thinking it’s a glitch at Temptalia. And it’s not a huge big deal, since I do seem able to get […]

This will be an easy one for me to “pass” – I’ve got colours similar to the 2 I really like (the dark purple and the top left shade) and as I never wear pink shadow (and have maybe 3 anyway that came in pre-made […]

Ditto what Christine said (though to me, Copperplate and Coquette both seem darker than taupe, which is why I didn’t mention Satin Taupe either; I think I’ve got me a few too many taupes but it never stops me […]

Pretty much the same as you, Christine, though sometimes I do it the other way round – apply with my finger and then blend in with a clean stippling brush.

RE my logging in issues – things are fixed (sort of). […]

It’s a really good lip balm, and I don’t say that lightly. The tube is a real pain, however, but I’ve got a thick and blunk short knitting needle that I use and I dip the needle (more like a thin spatula, almost) […]

I listed Inglot 349 in the earlier “5 Shades of Warm Taupe” listing but I guess it’s cool so I’ll have to re-root for it here, along with Inglot 434, which I got earlier this month and just love. I’m thinking that […]

I love this product but doubt I’ll buy it since I have the original one and it will take me a very long time even to make a dint in it, since I only use the tiniest amount at night. I do sometimes use this in the […]

This quad is much easier for me to take a pass on than the other 3 (I purchased one and plan to purchase at least one other – Rivoli – and possibly, Venetien). But I love Tisse Riviera #3 (not surprising…it’s TAUPE!).

Christine, it just keeps taking me to the log in page and when I hit “log in” and “remember me”, the box just sort of “wiggles” and (I can’t recall now for sure) but I think it removes my password. I’m going to […]

Weird – I don’t seem able to log in. Hope this posts. I have a hard time distinguishing between pewter and taupe (I love them both but they’re very similar to me) but a few of my favourites are Cargo Yukon, […]

This is a wonderful concealer. It feels very light and sheer on the skin (I use it almost exclusively for my under-eye circles) but it covers surprisingly well. I was shocked, the first time I used it because I didn’t think anything this light would provide anything much in the way of coverage. I’m happy to say that I was wrong. This concealer…[Read more]

Mariella reviewed 107 Beige 3 days, 7 hours ago

This is one of the foundations that I keep in my ongoing rotation. I love that it doesn’t feel heavy but gives good coverage and a luminous, slightly dewy (but not greasy) look. It wears well – holds up through my work day though this isn’t a long-wearing product so I don’t expect it to go from 6 am, when I first apply it, to 11 at night. It…[Read more]
