Ditto!

A range of foundation matches for the palest skin tones, especially those with a warm undertone. Sure, there’s NARS Siberia, and a few brands make white foundations to lighten darker ones, but it’s a hassle. As an […]

MAC Ruby Woo (over lipbalm)

It might not be your style (my mother has never worn red lipstick, and she’s in her 60s), but red is a timeless color in that it has never really gone out of fashion since the 1920s, except for a short period in […]

My old Chanel Hydrabase Lipstick in New York, or MAC Ruby Woo. I think red is the only truly timeless color, especially in a satin or matte finish.

No buying before reading reviews or seeing swatches!

Foundation and concealer too dark and orange. My skin tone is extremely pale so it took me a very long time to find products that work for me, and as a teen with rosacea and acne I wore my fair share of badly […]

I absolutely adore the packaging of these blushes, but for the price, I think I’d rather get Clinique’s Cheek Pop.

I don’t really care about celebrities, except for Dita Von Teese. I’d love it if she’d collaborate with a make up brand sold in the USA, her Art Deco collection was great but so hard to get!

I need these three, especially Temper. SO beautiful!

Baby blue. It looks terrible on my hazel eyes, sadly!

Same here. I’m extremely pale so 215 might still be too dark for me, but it will be worth a try!

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 […]
