I really, really wish MAC would reformulate this eyeshadow. It’s a beautiful cool-toned grey, a colour you don’t see a lot of in other brands. Unfortunately, it’s patchy on application and a pain to blend. (referring to permanent version)

The lipsticks are being reforumulated, I believe.

But if you’re not going to use every colour in a […]

Inglot, Hourglass, Bite, Hakuhodo, and I’m kind of intrigued by Marc Jacobs, too.

Her site now ships to the US, but there are still a few products we can’t get (anything with SPF, because it has to be tested first, because regulations), and the shipping charges are, IMLTHO, ridiculous. (It’s, I […]

Shelly commented on the post, What type of beauty products do you splurge on? 3 months, 3 weeks ago

Foundation, concealer, some makeup brushes, and I would spend a bit more on hair tools I’d use a lot (hair dryer, flat iron).

Shelly commented on the post, How often do you use eyeshadow primer? 4 months ago

All the time, when I’m wearing makeup. I have to. Otherwise any eyeshadow — powder or cream — will crease on me after ten seconds, because oily eyelids.

Smashbox e/s in Vanilla. Which I won’t be repurchasing because Smashbox discontinued their single eyeshadows. (I do have a similar colour waiting for me in my stash, thankfully!)

Shelly commented on the post, What was the last product you dropped? 4 months, 1 week ago

A little while back I dropped a palette with some Makeup Geek eyeshadows in it. They all survived the fall in tact, except for Poolside, which ended up with a heart-shaped chip in the middle of it. Very weird.
