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

Irene commented on the post, Best Makeup Primer for Oily Skin 1 month, 1 week ago

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 […]

Irene commented on the post, What was the last movie that you loved the makeup in? 1 month, 1 week ago

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.

Irene commented on the post, How did you find your foundation shade? 1 month, 3 weeks ago

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 […]

Irene commented on the post, What’s your favorite foundation and powder pairing? 1 month, 4 weeks ago

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 […]

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 […]

Irene commented on the post, How do you coordinate your makeup with your outfit? 2 months, 1 week ago

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 :(

I’ve never worn purples or burgundy before, so I’d like to try out making looks with those colors.

I’m very pale, so light shades are my neutrals! I can imagine wearing combinations of those colors everyday.

This one looks gorgeous, so bold! Will you be reviewing the new Anastasia Of Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks, Christine? I’m curious how similar they are to KVD’s.
