Gena commented on the post, Laura Mercier New Attitude Collection for Summer 2014 5 months, 1 week ago

I really want the eye palette with the pink shadow, if that darker one is purple and not black; I have too many black shadows I never use. I also NEED the mauvey-nude lipstick, BADLY.

Like a previous […]

Gena commented on the post, MAC Tres Cheek Collection for Summer 2014 5 months, 1 week ago

Hmmm…..I bought Full of Joy when it was released as part of a collection (can’t remember which one); it’s sort of hard and difficult to swipe (mine is, anyway). I’m wondering if the quality of this version will […]

I don’t own any yet, but I’m TOTALLY excited for Givenchy’s Over Rose Collection! Although it was “officially” released on January 21′ I haven’t been able to find it for sale on any US-based sites yet. Has […]

Christine, you always look super-great, but in the last few reviews, you’ve looked jaw-droppingly STUNNING….Secrets? ;) Have you been using Guerlain foundation? I know it’s more than that, just curious. […]

I’ve never tried OCC products. The loose pigments look very interesting. but I try to avoid them in general; i haven’t found a solution for “fall out” that works for me. :(

The song “Everyday is Hallowe’en”, […]

I like the looks of Shadowy Lady and Frisco, but I’ll pass. if I bought this I would be using Frisco the most, and I would venture to guess that most people would, given that it’s neutral; why is it one of the […]

Thank you Christine, for your research and hard work; I had no idea who Bourdin was. NARS has a history championing objectification of women. No blush I’ve ever tried looks better on me than Orgasm, but you can […]

Christine, I literally have no words, being particularly ineloquent at the moment; just thank you, and brava! You have true courage.
BTW, Bourdin was a protege of Man Ray, another well-known misogynist; to me, […]

I really want to check out the cheek palettes. I bought Danmari last year (year before?), and I LOVE it. I have quite a respectable collection of NARS blushes going. ;)

Gena commented on the post, What was the last beauty product you tried that was a major miss? 11 months, 3 weeks ago

I had to check out Pandora; it’s a “new” brand to me, and it looks interesting. ;). What didn’t you like about it? Is this your first time trying this brand? If not, how have their other products worked for you?

Thank you sweetie. ;)

I’ve been meaning to ask you this for ages, Christine: What do you wash your brushes with? Can you perhaps list a step-by-step how-to? I’d appreciate it ever so much! <3

Awesome–I’m off to buy it right now! :)

Gena commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Bronzer 1 year, 1 month ago

I don’t use bronzer much, either; I can’t even remember the last time I did. XD
I’ve been wanting to try a grayish contour powder BADLY lately, but I can’t seem to find one. Do you have some that you could […]

I just went on the site, and Parental Advisory was listed as “discontinued”; BOO!

LOL! If only he’d made that comment sooner… That’s GOT to be the FASTEST way to get a person to stop wearing brown lipliner! I don’t see it much these days, but from now on, when i do, you know what I’LL be thinking of.

Don’t feel bad, Shea. :). I see more and more make-up “professionals” –artists, magazine stylists, etc.–encouraging people to do this, and it just amazes me. I’ve never seen anyone whose eyes DON’T look […]
