Irene commented on the post, MAC Diva Lipstick Review, Photos, Swatches 2 days, 4 hours ago

Christine is right! In her review of Studded Kiss, which is similar to Diva, it looked completely different to how it looks on me -on her it was a somewhat dark red, on me it’s almost pure black (I’m very very […]

I believe Charlotte uses this as both moisturizer and primer to give a “glow” to the skin, although I’ve read some reviews of this cream from people with oily skin and the “glow” translated more as “oil” for them. […]

I tend to prefer blue-based reds and matte finishes, but I love a lot of these! Rita is such an elegant shade, I might have to check it out. Olivia is stunning on you, but I think it might be a bit too dark and […]

So excited for Next to Skin! I’ve always wanted to try contouring, but as an ultra-pale person (NC05) all contouring products I’ve seen have been too orange, too brown, or just too harsh on my skintone. Fingers […]

Not liking this. The colors remind me of a dirty swamp.

OPI Malaga Wine or Essie Fishnet Stockings! Basically, a classic blue red.

Irene commented on the post, What is your biggest beauty concern at the moment? 3 weeks, 5 days ago

Foundation matching (I’m very pale, but my neck and body and even paler and more yellow than my face, so it’s a pain to find a foundation shade that doesn’t look unnatural) and acne scarring. I love my fair skin, […]

Irene commented on the post, Hit List: Best Makeup Removing Wipes 1 month, 1 week ago

The Neutrogena Night Calming Wipes are AMAZING! I’ve always hated make up removing wipes because they didn’t really do a good job, but these do take all my make up off. I still use a cleansing oil most of the time […]

Irene commented on the post, What beauty advice would you give your younger self? 1 month, 3 weeks ago

Acne isn’t the end of the world. And get foundation that matches your skintone! I cringe thinking of the shades of orange I must have looked when I first started wearing make up.

Irene commented on the post, 5 Blushes to Try for Fair Skin Tones 1 month, 3 weeks ago

I’m extremely pale and my favorite daily blush is NYX Red, which is actually very pigmented but I just lightly touch it with my blush brush and then get rid of excess by brushing twice on the back of my hand, it […]

Irene commented on the post, What do you look for in a new foundation? 2 months ago

My ideal foundation would have buildable medium coverage, be long lasting on oily skin, and look like real skin. Not emphasize dry patches or flaky skin, and not oxidize and change color through the day. But most […]

Pink and gold/bronze for summer! It’s such a beautiful palette.

Irene commented on the post, What kind of coverage do you prefer in your lipstick? 3 months, 2 weeks ago

Opaque all the way! If I want some sheerer, I’ll use color lipbalm.

I’m in need of a golden eyeshadow, and this seems it!

It’s pretty, but the whole collection is pretty disappointing for me. I was hoping there would be deeper shades of red, more interesting colors in eyeshadows, etc., I can’t understand why they’d release the […]

Irene commented on the post, What color lipstick do you reach for most often? 4 months, 3 weeks ago

Reds! I don’t wear lipstick everyday, but even my lipbalm is a sheer red. It looks the most flattering against my very fair skintone!

Irene commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Finishing Powders 4 months, 3 weeks ago

I had never used a finishing powder (just regular pressed translucent powder) until I bought the NARS Light Reflecting Loose Powder, and it’s my favorite make-up product ever! It didn’t work so well until I […]

I’m also very oily, and I do use the NARS Light Reflecting Loose Powder, however I use it differently than the way Lotus recommends. On my skin, using a powder brush gave a very meh look, not at all the […]

Irene commented on the post, Do you wear lip balm underneath lipgloss or lipstick? 5 months ago

I don’t wear it underneath, but I usually apply lipbalm before doing my make up and then, right before putting lipstick on, I’ll take the lipbalm off with a q-tip and some make-up remover. This way I can […]

I definitely can’t, but whenever I wear MAC Ruby Woo lipstick a lot of people (who don’t know me!) know right away what lipstick it is and will compliment on it. Then again, Ruby Woo is very special -extremely […]
