A red with ruby shimmer, like Chanel’s Rouge Allure Laque Dragon but in lipstick form! I own more than 20 red lipsticks, but none come close to that gorgeous blood red color.

I don’t really watch make up tutorials except Lisa Eldridge’s, and hers I’ll watch even if it’s not my style just to learn from her techniques and to hear her wonderful voice!

Thankfully never, I always set my foundation with powder and it doesn’t really rub off unless you really try, and though I wear red lipstick all the time I’m super careful not to leave marks on anyone, except my […]

+1 Elie Saab!

Definitely not to the point of being a make up addict (I’m not one myself, either), but ever since I got into cosmetics my mother has showed more interest in buying better formulas and learning about techniques […]

I was hoping you’d review Besame lipsticks one day! I don’t own any myself yet, but I think I want every single color 😀

That happened to me with one of the regular NYX blushes, but I had dropped it. Sad to hear this packaging is flimsier.

I use Monistat Chafing Relief Powder Gel (yes, really). It’s meant to be used on the skin wherever it rubs, like between the thighs, but it works amazingly well as a primer. I’ve been using it for years on my […]

I agree! However, most period films adapt makeup looks of the past to look more modern and not as “odd” to the audience so it’s not distracting, just like costumes (it’s always been done, like Gone with the Wind […]

Well, these are boring, and the lustre finish isn’t doing anything for me. I wish they would have done something a bit more interesting with the Cinderella theme.

Rosacea spots and seb dermatitis flaky skin :(

I tried about a billion foundations and bb creams (you can’t return make up in Spain, where I used to live, which made it harder) that were all way too dark for my ghostly pale skin, until one day on a trip I […]

I have sensitive/combination skin (seb dermatitis + rosacea), and I like Skin79 Green bb cream with NARS Light Reflecting Loose Powder. That powder is amazing, it blurs imperfections yet doesn’t emphasize any dry patches.

I had very high hopes for Anastasia’s liquid lipsticks, but if they’re drying and half the amount than KVD’s, I might try Underage Red instead, if anything. I love matte finishes, but my lips get very dry during […]

I don’t usually wear a lot of eye makeup, so for me it’s primer, foundation, concealer, liquid highlighter, setting powder, powder blush, eyeshadow, eyeliner, eyelash curler, mascara, brow powder and gel. If I’m […]

Your skin tone/coloring: Very pale, yellow-neutral, NC05
Favorite lip combo of the moment? MAC Cherry lipliner + Bite Beauty Cashmere Lip Cream
One holy grail skincare product? Clinique Scrub or Hada Labo […]

That said, it is a beautiful color. A pity it didn’t perform well, but I can’t wear such dark burgundies myself anyway, they look black against my pale skin :(

I wish they’d stop naming beauty or fashion stuff “black dahlia”. Although it is also a flower, it’s best known for being the name of a horrifying murder case, not something I’d want to remotely associate with a […]

I don’t tend to wear colorful eyeshadows, so I just match the make up style to the clothes. When I’m going for a film noir look I’ll wear dark eyeshadow and deep red lipstick, or if for example I’m going for a […]

It’s so beautiful, but it looks rather similar to Ruby Woo so I don’t know if I can justify getting another red :(
