Christine, does it go away one the product is in a moderate and consistent temperature?

Probably NARS or MUFE as I like so many of their products and they don’t seem as tied to current trends as some other brands. Also, being older, I feel they don’t target just a younger consumer and aim at a level […]

I was thinking the same thing. I’ve often joked with the SA’s at Sephora about what a dangerous place it would be for me to work there as I would bring home NOTHING in my pay!

I love the name and concept behind the name of the BM Work, Weekend, Wow palette but I have some of those shadows already and so don’t feel all that interested. If only the Tarte palette had a better, more […]

I already have Los Cabos (in a great palette with 2 blushes as well) and it’s nice – very light, which suits me. Like so many others, I’m eager to try Tranquil….clever of Sephora to release a shade so much like […]

My experience is that Sephora has seriously stepped up their game with regard to their own line. There is SO much that I really love and the prices are great, which is an added bonus. I’m dying to try out their […]

I take a perverse comfort in seeing that I’m in good company with the “not even close” choice (though it should be a wake up call rather than any sort of comfort!). I haven’t even hit pan on a single eyeshadow in […]

I’m sort of confuddled by this whole “Fall Gifting” concept. Is Fall now a gift-giving occasion? Unless I’ve been specific about “I want THIS”, I don’t much like people “gifting” me makeup, even at Christmas or […]

I’d included brushes like the following: my wonderful little Shiseido foundation brush; Sephora Pro Cream eyeshadow brush (for concealer AND cream shadows); a MAC 239 and 217; a Sephora smudger brush; the Smashbox […]

Haul: PUR Minerals Simplicity Soothing Cleanser (wonderful), Clarins Gentle Exfoliating Brightening Toner, and while we were over the border, I stocked up on my fave moisturizer – Eucerin Q10 Cream and also got a […]

Eons ago, Max Factor made a great one. I still have one but the little “tab” that allowed it to open is pretty much broken off. Some years ago, I discovered the QUO retractable lipstick brush and it’s the only one […]

I’ll stick with Sephora’s own “Pro” line of brushes (and some of their regular “ordinary mortals” line). I find most of Sephora’s brushes to be absolutely excellent.

I love everything about that palette EXCEPT the blush which is just too warm and too orange for me (I know others will love it and this will be a perfect palette for them; I’m jealous and wish they had an option […]

There’s very, very little that will motivate me to buy something sight unseen. The only product I’ve purchased recently (and this has to be a year or more ago) was MAC Fiction eyeshadow when it was repromoted in […]

If Pasiphae is the 2nd shadow pictured, it must be amazing because it’s described as “shimmering peacock burgundy”, but it looks like a luminous, duo-chrome dark jade. I can’t wait at least to see and swatch it […]

I entirely don’t need this and it’s an easy “skip” for me but I’m “loving” it nevertheless as I just generally love Nars eyeshadows and their palettes, which are such a great way to get a lot of different shadows […]

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Favorite warm-toned lipstick? you’re joking, right? I guess the warmest toned lipstick I have is Guerlain Habit Rouge
Favorite cool-toned blush? just the one? Oh dear…well, […]

Yeah, that jelly-oozey looking stuff is a bit off-putting but these are gorgeous. I so love BITE’s lipsticks and these look like mattes I’d actually wear – they don’t have that nasty dry look so common to matte […]

A few of the shades look VERY “wantable” but so many others look exactly like colours they’ve had in past (in their palettes) but with new names on them and that’s something I don’t like about TF – they seem to […]
