Quinctia commented on the post, Is there a beauty product you feel guilty buying? 6 days, 19 hours ago

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? 6 days, 20 hours 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

L’Occitane Rose Petals lip balm — I grabbed it because I’ve been on a bit of a rose kick. It’s actually not that rose-y, but it’s stupidly hydrating.

And here’s the thing, I got it from ACW at a decently […]

I usually do just use one palette, but there’s a bit exception for me in this: I love using Walk of Shame from UD Naked Basics as a lid color and then using a bright from UD Electric in the crease to make a more […]

I’m still a bit mad that they didn’t put Vice 3 in this case (so it matched the other two better) and used the more different one for this LTD palette. Would’ve made more sense to me, personally.

This palette […]

I’m not onboard with the concept. I wish they had made entirely new colors.

I probably would prefer this formula in terms of feel on the lips, but between 2/3 full sizes I own, and that box of minis that they […]

Solstice is very interesting. I like the Moondusts as an added dimension to a look with other shadows, but it’s definitely an oddball formula.

I’m also not stoked about these at full price–I managed to score […]

I love UD Electric so much…

Quinctia commented on the post, Do you consider yourself brand-loyal? 4 weeks, 1 day ago

I’d say yes, to a few–I consider Urban Decay and Milani to be really excellent for color cosmetics. But…I’ll use anything if it’s good and I can afford it.

Very pretty! Kinda meh on the lipsurgence line in general, but this looks like one of the nicer ones!

CoverGirl Clean Whipped Creme foundation – but it’s been discontinued, :(….but I alternate it with my old standby

I like that it’s subtle enough to not be too stark on the lower lash line, but it’s definitely visible. Too bad anything I put down in that area vanishes in like a half hour. XD

Brush all the way! I think the harder pointy applicators would work for me a lot better if they were more flexible.

I might pick up the eyeliner, but I didn’t pick up last year’s until it was on clearance, so…

Blake is gorgeous! But, not for that performance at its price. I was a little disappointed that nothing in the dupe list was that close…but I saw Revlon Sandstorm on that list! Haha, and I just managed to pick […]
