I wouldn’t normally go for an orange red but I think I could pull Excite off because the finish looks really light and natural. Not keen on the packaging though so might have a look at the dupes!

La Roche Posay Effaclar duo + and Ren’s clarifying toner. I also had a prescription for Zineryt for some stubborn spots.

I was already thinking about buying Th(ink) but Midnight in Paris and Blacquer look good too and there’s no such thing as too many eyeliners… $25 dollars seemed a lot for Th(Ink) on its own. I tried it in Paris […]

Totally understandable! Mushroom is a great shade! Not sure if it is just my monitor or how it looks on my lid but it seems a bit warmer in this swatch?
And the Blackout in my 15th Anniversary palette seems to be […]

As much as I love the colour of Dragon, it can look a bit heavy on me and I prefer a solid lipstick- so maybe something like a Rouge G or Coco Rouge formula, although I bet it would look amazing in the new NARS […]

Jo commented on the post, Which area do you apply makeup to first? 2 months, 1 week ago

Eyes if I’m putting on eyeshadow, face if I’m just putting on a bit of eyeliner although I start with moisturiser and then do my eyes while that sinks in, then back to face, then to brows, then set face and blush…!

I can’t believe they are trying to market it as functional. Just be honest and say ‘Yep. Design. We went really heavily for design!’ Maybe you are meant to hold it like a pencil or paintbrush? I can’t comment too […]

The packaging is interesting and on point for Louboutin but there really needs to be a functional cap hiding under that spike! I think I’d be more interested in the line if just this shade came in this bottle as a […]

What would be cool would be like a really big glass top drawer sort of like this […]

Wow! Amazing shades and range but I wish there was a 6 pan and 12 pan palette too for those who like to build larger collections…. I wonder if these will be around in France when I go in September :D

Jo commented on the post, What is your least favorite part of your beauty routine? 3 months, 2 weeks ago

Definitely agree! I hate that my hair is then wet and I prefer to air dry it so I have to plan when I have the time to do that. And my nails need a proper trim and file at least every 10 days or they get too long. […]

Yeah definitely, the shimmer definitely comes through more in the Chanel. I found it depended which swatches I looked at as well because of the lighting- the troubles shimmer can cause!! I guess I’d say go Chanel […]

Anti-Fashion is also along the lines of Chanel Paradoxal I’d say and also Barry M in 313 Dusky Mauve which was one of the first dupes for Paradoxal at the time.

I quite like that they have decent pigmentation dry. I thought this was going to be a way to get away with bad pigment when dry but it is just about making it more intense when wet which is nice. Can’t wait to see […]

I do that with mascara too because I used to end up with mascara on the bridge of my nose from the rod of the wand!

When I was younger I just put on quite a bit of black eyeliner! My mum told me I could get away with more because my eyes were behind glasses. I’m not sure if that was the best tip for a 14 year old! Then when I […]

I wish Fizzy Rose was more pigmented. A dusky rose is on my list of things to find!

Looks so pretty on its own but it isn’t allowed to be shipped to the UK :(
