I’m bizarrely impressed that, despite their utter failure at making that black liner in the grays trio work at all, they managed to make the purple mediocre, at least. I thought purples were supposed to be difficult! XD

Quinctia commented on the post, Do you finish beauty products regularly? 17 hours, 52 minutes ago

Hmm…I finish off “shower” stuff all the time. Shampoo, conditioner, shaving cream, body scrub, mint julep face mask, and, after a kick where I didn’t use bar soap in the shower, I’ve killed quite a few bars of […]

So far, so good, review-wise, but none of these three shades appeal to me.

I don’t know whether to hope that I love one of the others, and it’s good (yay, new nice lip thing!), or hope that I don’t like any of […]

Misbehave looks awesome in the tube, and then loses most of those qualities in application. :(

Quinctia commented on the post, What color blush do you reach for most often? 3 days, 18 hours ago

I don’t own many blushes, but I have a few that are in the same coral-y with shimmer family: Bella Bamba, Tarte Glisten, and I can’t remember the shade of Urban Decay cream blush, but yeah.

I’ve mainly worn […]

I think that’s the most impressive blue eyeshadow I’ve seen come out of a luxury line, they tend to cop out on that sort of color.

Everything else seems less exciting, so I guess if something had to be sold […]

I keep trying to find the perfect gold, and I buy a surprising amount of purples, but I WEAR Guerlain Bal de Mai the most often…it’s honestly close to a MLBB shade for me, though, so that makes sense. I think.

Purple. So much purple.

I can’t say anything about the other products in the line, but the powder eyeshadows have always been rather good! Some of the old palettes had, like, one cream shadow in them, which was an awful design, though.

B-but Playland looks so pretty…

If I buy another gold lipstick, it’s got to rate better than that, though. :D

I have really pigmented lips, so I’m a pretty big fan of this type of lipstick, actually. But not when they’re a pain to apply, like this one seems to be. :(

But, with a good one, lip color shows through, I get […]

Quinctia commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Finishing Powders 1 week, 4 days ago

I like cream foundation, so I often find a little bit of powder a necessity to set the cream product. I like that I can change the effect of everything depending on what powder I use. I try to keep a mattifying […]

I’m kinda tempted by that palette, but I probably have dupes? I’m just happy to see Lorac put out something more “interesting” shade-wise, because they have a really good eyeshadow formula, but have done so many […]

Jack Black works well for me because my lips get on well with petroleum jelly, for some reason! So I’ve actually found the Vaseline Lip Therapy to work pretty well for me…which is good, because I only bought it […]

Nfu Oh nail polish! And, for some reason, I always look at stuff by Etude House (Korean brand), but I haven’t bought any of their cosmetics yet–I just have one hand cream that came in a container that looks like […]

Quinctia commented on the post, Sneak Peek: NARS Lipglosses Photos & Swatches 2 weeks ago

Hmm…personally, at that level of pigmentation, I require serious sparkle/shimmer from a shimmery gloss. So this is probably not a line for me. But I’m not a huge gloss lover, anyway. I do like the looks of Risky […]

They do look adorable all lined up, but unless you store them like that, it should be good enough that the NARS wraps around the cap, right? ;)

CVS has this $6-7 two pack with one normalish, domed crease brush, and one tiny, bitsy one. I love the tiny one. I’ve bought a second set to get another one. Since I tend to do my lid color with a normal sized […]

At first, I was all “Oooh, that’s pretty!” and then, I have to remind myself I own all of about six bluses and two of them are already really similar.

Rose Glace’s packaging is so pretty! And I’d totally buy a <$12 dupe of the color. But as a highly premium priced product, it's a bit disappointing.
