Illamasqua said it right – once. Once I buy the nail polish I’m moving on to more interesting collections.

These particular shadows are what I consider the foundation shadows. You can’t go wrong with them. I have the golden amber (662) which I love, so I passed on the cauldron color. Black gold is beautiful. I […]

I agree with you Christine, I’m seeing more of those muted, non traditional colors and uber metallics. I love the offbeat colors and duochromes. I hope we see many more. Many are more neutral on the nail than expected.

Wait a minute now, “don’t call it a comeback”. (lol)..For some of us chocolate girls who were grown in the 90′s, brown lippies have always been part of our basic collection. They never left or went out of style. […]

Loreal Infallible 24 hr gel eyeliners. My favorite is Espresso. Dark but not as harsh as black. I put this eyeliner on @ 5:45 am and it stays put until I take it off around 7:30pm. Hasn’t failed me yet.

I bought the Sapphire I-220 e/s. It’s very pretty. I swatched but did not purchase the Black e/s. It’s very pigmented and glittery! Perfect for an evening look.

This shade seems like a silvery version of a Mac color I wore 20+ years ago called Fetish. I wore Fetish damn near every day for awhile. I’m buying VGR2 because it’s unusual and it’s for charity.

I’ll take the entire smokey palette in the middle, thank you very much. I think I can treat myself to 3-4. If I like them, watch out Christmas, here I come!

I have my eye on the Frank N Furter lipstick and the Bad Fairy nail polish. I would love to see a campy 60′s collection honoring the fabulous Divine and John Waters. They were very popular during the same era as […]

I’m 51 and have loved makeup since I received a Barbie makeup head with the hair rollers and “makeup” accessories when I was 7. I’ve had lapses when I was too busy to keep up with current trends, but now with […]

Tom Ford blush, lipstick or brush. Nars blush. Guerlain four season bronzer/blush.

I own both and use them interchangeably with the Mac 239. I love the J004G, it’s a smidgen narrower than the 239. It’s a great brush and I use it every week. I love my Hakuhodo brushes.
