Oh boy, these are all my favorite eyeshadow colors. I probably have a million dupes of each, but the fact that they’re all in one place is pretty convenient. On the other hand, I’m not good about using my big […]

Hmm, I think maybe medium? I have a lot of acne scarring and dark spots, which still show through, but the powder does make them seem lighter and less noticeable. I hope that helps. I put on a BB cream (right […]

Haul: Eyeko blue and black mascara duo – it’s kind of meh. I might return it. I don’t know why I keep trying different mascaras when Almay is my favorite and never lets me down.
Givenchy Les Mini […]

Your skin tone/coloring: light, neutral

How often do you contour/highlight? Almost never, although I’m trying to learn. I just realized this morning, though, that the way my mom taught me to apply blush is a […]

Oh, ok, thanks. So I wonder how that works, then – do you have to take it out ahead of time to let it “thaw” before using it?

The only thing I really try to keep track of is mascara. I’ll write the day I opened a mascara on a piece of painter’s tape and wrap it around the tube. Other than that, I just kind of wing it. I read that […]

Your skin tone/coloring: fair with neutral to warm undertones (MAC NC15)

Pteetsa commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Teeth Whitening 2 weeks, 2 days ago

My teeth are naturally slightly yellowish (according to my dad, this is because we are of Russian descent – I don’t know if that is true or not) and I drink a lot of tea, so I really wanted to whiten my teeth […]

Sometimes if I’m running late, I will do my makeup at work (shh…don’t tell anyone). So right now I have Armani Lasting Silk foundation, NYX Setting Powder, Almay mascara, Reviva primer, and L’Oreal Blur blush […]

Man, that’s pretty! Wish YSL still had the 20% off promotion going on… But I think I will try to duplicate the colors from my own collection. Thanks for the review and swatches, Christine!

Ok, thank you! I will have to check out the Kevyn Aucoin. I may have to look at Becca, too. The Becca bronzer in Topaz is a gorgeous bronze color – I wanted to wear it as an eyeshadow. Through some […]
