Cocoa is one of my regular workday eye pencils. It has a nice subtle shimmer without being glittery and over the top for the workday. I like the Sephora pencils as a cheaper option.

This Vice edition has colors that would make it a great Spring palette. I’m hooked on my MUFE shadows, so I passed on UD palettes this season.

I’m going to say my customized palette created from the newly re formulated MUFE eyeshadows. Because they’re customized by preference, I use all of the colors and get more bang for my buck. They are beautifully pigmented.

I must be the exception..I never, ever forget my mascara. My mascara and lipstick are the last things I put on before I walk out the door on my way to work. I’ve never forgotten my mascara but I have forgotten my lunch.

Cleansing oils! I have oily combo skin and never thought adding oil to my face to emulsify foundations, etc. for makeup removal would be effective. Added Shu Uemura and other face oils to my regimen this year – […]

Christine, you can wear various tones of lipstick like no other. When I was a young ‘un, I wore red lipstick to college, work, everywhere! Now that I’m 51, I choose my red lipsticks more judiciously, but Mother […]

I deliberately ignored most of the current UD, Mac , Lorac, Anastasia, etc. assorted recent palette releases to focus on these e/s. The quality is great and I get to customize my palette for colors I actually […]
