I tend to splurge mostly on lipsticks and foundation, and I have way to many of both. I usually save on blush, eyeliner, mascara (L’Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black FTW!) and concealer. Everything else is somewhere […]

Wow, these look beautiful! I’m so tempted to get one. Or two. Or all three?! Oh dear….

Your skin tone/coloring: Fairest (would be approx. NW05 if it existed!).

Your go-to cleanser right now?

I know that these aren’t items I can easily get my hands on but they look really good! Can’t wait for the reviews; I hope they turn out to be as good as they look. :)

I love the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil Free Gel Cream. It’s lovely and light for my oily skin and absorbs quickly. For Summer that’s the one I reach for. :)

Ooh, I’ve got both of these in the Lip Lacquer formula and I really like them. They’re pretty long lasting in comparison to lip gloss and are both great colours for everyday. These look nice but I think I’ll pass. :)

The two jumping out at me as the kind of colours I’d wear are Gypsy and Flowerchild. I’ve wanted to get Gypsy for a while and I’ve seen it reduced but never bought it. Is it worth waiting for the new version or […]

I use a variety of items to tame my oily skin. A mattifying SPF 50+ sunscreen after an oil-free gel moisturiser. Then a mattifying primer followed by either the Nars All Day Luminous Weightless foundation or a […]

Pink Swoon is back?! Hell yes! I love that blush. It’s a great pink. 😀

I use the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. I use that with every liquid foundation I apply. I love how small and dense it is. What do you use, or rather, what would you recommend I use? I’m always up for suggestions. :)

3. Audacious Lipstick in Anna (I loved this as soon as I saw it and hunted high and low to get it!)
4. Multiple in Orgasm (I […]

Well, I don’t have many Nars products and haven’t tried many more so this is easier for me.
In no particular order:

1.All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation (stays matte all day, which on my skin is a really […]

Ooh, I have Pomegranate and I love it. It’s very pigmented so I have to watch what I’m doing to avoid clown cheeks! Lovely colour though. :)

The only thing I’ve ever bought a back up for was the MAC Moon River Mineralize blush. I love it so much that although I’ve finished the first one I won’t touch the second. I just stare longingly at it wishing […]

I still love Tulle. Not sure why since colours like that don’t tend to appeal to me too much. I hope I can get my hands on it. :)

Like you Christine my favourite lipstick formula of all time is the Rouge G formula.Their other lipsticks are really nice too. I haven’t dabbled with many of their other products too much really although I do love […]

The Stila All Day Liquid Lipstick in Bellissima. I had to give it away, it was just far too drying for my lips!

Profile picture of Gillian

Tulle caught my eye straight away. I didn’t get along with the last matte liquid lipstick I tried though. Still, if it could look as nice on me as it does on you then I might be prepared to put up with dry lips. 😀
