I agree that there should have been some eye catching packaging…just to make these mostly generic looking products more enticing. I like the blushes and one or two of the eyeshadows, but the lip colors would […]

Patricia commented on the post, Have you ever attended a beauty event? 2 months, 1 week ago

Aside from counter events, the only one I have been to is IMATS. I went to the 2013 event in Pasadena.
It was crazy busy and packed to the gills with people. But, it was so worth it. No sales tax, long lines, […]

Patricia commented on the post, Hit List: Best Coral Lipstick 2 months, 1 week ago

Coral lipsticks are among my favorite shades to wear. Right now I am loving “Classic Coral” by Southern Magnolia Minerals. It is hydrating, opaque, not too bright and only semi matte. It is a great color for summer.

I had a signature scent and I wore it for many years and I do indeed think it reflected my personality when I was a young woman. Then, it was reformulated, and reformulated yet again….and I dumped it for some […]

Patricia commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Eyeshadow Palettes 3 months, 1 week ago

Palettes are great for travel and for getting a lot of different shades for a reasonable price (usually!). My only rant would be that I wish there were more all-matte palettes. I know that there are a few good […]

Patricia commented on the post, How often do you wash your makeup brushes? 3 months, 1 week ago

I don’t wash my brushes very often unless I have used a cream or liquid product. For those brushes, I will wash them after two or three uses. I do wash my concealer brush almost every day. I have back ups so I […]
