Mariella commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Under Eye Concealer 18 hours, 9 minutes ago

I need concealer under my eyes and, to a lesser degree, to cover redness around my nose (though most of the time, foundation works fine enough). What I don’t like is (I’m sure this is a common complaint) when […]

I’d wear the teal green shade on the far right all over the lid and then put a neutral light brown in the crease. I’d try the yellow either on the tear duct/inner corner or pressed onto the centre of the lid for […]

Mariella commented on the post, Dior Cuir Cannage (796) Eyeshadow Palette Review, Photos, Swatches 18 hours, 22 minutes ago

So odd that the middle shade looks so pigmented and intense in the pan and yet didn’t adhere at first and the was too dark/heavy. It’s not the sort of brown shade I like much but I do like the other shades in the […]

Once again, it’s such a shame that this isn’t better because if the quality was there, this would be such a handy palette to have (shades of the first Balmbini palette). As it stands, what a let-down. And again […]

I know what you mean – the term “carbon footprint” has taken on a whole new meaning in the past few years!!!! In the earlier palette, Typographic would have been a much better addition than Carbon!

I like the concept but, just as with the other palette, there are too many permanent shades that I and I’m sure many others here already own. Mind you, I have to accept that many of these holiday items are aimed […]

Another nice set but I don’t need these colours. I do wish MAC would make the Extra Dimension shadows (or the best of them) permanent and also not in such huge containers as they were a few releases ago. I much […]

I do like that MAC is making some “value sets” with the Extra Dimension shadows for a change/at last. It’s nice to see. They should smarten up and put some of those great shadows from that last collection (can’t […]

I’m feeling sort of bad now that I’ve complicated your life even more with regard to the dupe “tags”. And the math thing – yeah, I couldn’t figure out how something could have a rating of something like 87% […]

Mariella reviewed Natural Eye 1 day, 18 hours ago

This review is for the “original” Natural Eye palette. The one I have is in the large, boxy container with the drawer to hold a brush that I and I’m sure others haven’t used. This palette was redone a while back and the most problematic colour, Nude Beach, which was a nightmare of glitter fallout, has been replaced which is a great thing but…[Read more]

Mariella reviewed Brokedown 1 day, 20 hours ago

This is one of the shades I really liked in Vice3. I don’t know if I got a bad one (I’m sure this can’t really happen all that much with mass production like this) but I find this shadow a total pain in the neck to use. It just sticks in the brush and won’t transfer at all to my eyelids. I press and push and brush and pick up more on the brush…[Read more]

Mariella reviewed Brulee 1 day, 20 hours ago

For years, I used this in place of MAC’s Brule shadow, which costs 5 or 6 times more than this little beauty. Even after I got “the original”, I still continue to use this much lower priced version simply because it is a really great eyeshadow! The only “down-sides” are the packaging, which is cheap (but for the price, I don’t really care all…[Read more]
