Quinctia commented on the post, Do you like following beauty brands on social media? 6 days, 13 hours ago

I don’t really care about brands’ marketing. My facebook is to keep up with actual people in my life, so no I’m not going to follow companies on it. I’m on the email list of a couple of my favorite brands, and […]

As much as I love Ulta for its variety of products and its rewards, whoever packs up the stuff for shipping (or, more likely, whoever decided HOW they all should be packed and instructed everyone else) is incompetant.

Jubilation and Craving are my kind of cheek products! (Yeah, I almost always reach for bronzer or highlighter before I touch blush. And I love gold.)

At least the Megalasts are somewhat thinner than average in diameter.

Nope.

In certain circumstances, I’ll pay more for a product that is higher quality, but I have things I love on both ends of the spectrum. I’ll set a drugstore foundation with a higher end setting powder, use […]

I think I could probably make something like this work on my browbone. My skin isn’t particularly oily, and my browbone is far enough away from my crease to keep it from migrating. But it sounds like it would […]

I grabbed one of these out of curiosity, and I like the formula, but I never reach for singles! Maybe I should throw it in the makeup bag where I keep all my L’Oreal Infallibles, since I do use those occasionally. XD

If I remember, though, your hair’s thick like mine–so I bet you feel a lot lighter! Sometimes just that is worth it.

It’s still super cold out here, I’m just waiting until I don’t need my hair for warmth and […]

Quinctia commented on the post, How often do you use a colored eyeshadow base? 1 month ago

I picked other, because my daily primer, UDPP in Greed is technically colored. It’s golden and shimmery, but I don’t feel that it really changes the color of my eyeshadows. It does change the texture, which is why […]

Wow, I own a lot of purple eyeshadow, and I don’t think I would’ve pegged that second color as being difficult to get right…

Quinctia commented on the post, Have you ever depotted makeup? 1 month ago

I’ve depotted a few eyeshadow singles. Mostly Urban Decay, but at least one MAC, and a few other brands.

For me, the hardest part was removing the inner plastic piece from the outer clamshell without gouging […]

Quinctia commented on the post, What was the last beauty product you dropped? 1 month, 1 week ago

I am constantly knocking my lip balms off my nightstand. Survival is never a question…it’s a matter of will I find it again. Sometimes I do it when I put my glasses up for the night, and don’t notice for a day […]

Top coats seem to behave differently with different polish formulas, as well as people’s own body chemistry.

For instance, Seche Vite, everyone favorite super-smoothing quick dry top coat isn’t supposedly to […]

Quinctia commented on the post, How do you keep track of what you own? 1 month, 2 weeks ago

I actually have a spreadsheet for my nail polish, which is sorely in need of an update, but THAT’S just for when I participate in a forum secret santa among some nail polish geeks.

I otherwise maintain a […]

Man, a lot of the “new” products I tried in the past year weren’t new formulas, so…I’m guessing when the voting comes around, there will be something up there other people nominated that I tried and loved, but […]

Quinctia commented on the post, What was the last beauty product you finished? 1 month, 2 weeks ago

I’m fishing out the dregs of another pot of CoverGirl Clean Whipped Creme foundation. Still sad that it’s d/c’ed…I ordered a couple from a seller on Amazon, but my shade is one of the more popular ones, so I’ll […]

Ugh. I like the original Color Elixirs, but these seem like a product fail AND I get angry at the “Iridescent” in the name, because these things AREN’T iridescent.

I love iridescent things. I could put up with […]

If more companies made pan-only shadows available…that were cheaper than ones in a compact…that also carried a volume discount (something like 3-for-2 or 5-for-4), I’d love to make custom palettes. You can get […]

There are a few cheap Nyx lippies I’ve accidentally bought doubles of–both instances honestly happened because I’d forgotten I’d ordered them online, but cheap things are easily gifted without guilt.

And, I […]

If Jack Black works well for you guys, Vaseline Lip Therapy might be a good cheapie alternative, at least for the at home/night time application. I get on very well with petroleum based balms in general and, while […]
