Yay, brush applicators! Time will tell if any of the shades catch my eye in person, but I love brushes, so that’ll make me keep my eye out for these.

…they could’ve put a couple of Swaravskis in the dots of their logo or something to make the packaging a bit more luxe, pressed the powder with a pretty imprint, and it’d still be a bit pricy for what it is. But […]

CVS can be unreal. Last month, I got 30% off coupons two weeks in a row. If only my most local store restocked the cosmetics section more often. I think I honestly own everything they currently stock that I would want.

Ulta’s can be just about timing.

A short while after the UD Electric palette came out, Ulta got it in–while they had a 20% anything coupon (which happens at least 4-5x a year, if you’re Platinum), AND I had […]

Quinctia commented on the post, If you were in a rush, what one eyeshadow would you apply? 1 week, 5 days ago

Anything duochrome–let the complexity of the color do the work that blending multiple colors together usually achieves!

Pink Diamond reminds me a bit of Burt’s Bees gloss in Sunny Day, though that may be slightly more sheer. …but that does retail for $9 and can probably be found on sale, so that might make the difference negligable.

Brandy looks like a nice, everyday sort of shade.

What a shame, the pink and orange are more unique colors, and especially for Chanel.

Quinctia commented on the post, What was the last product you purchased a back up of? 2 weeks, 2 days ago

…probably when I bought another UD Greed Primer Potion. Then, when I looked in my drawer (I have a drawer with backups and gift purchases), I realized I had four, so I probably shouldn’t buy any more. Or maybe I […]

It’s pretty. If someone dupes it a la Peridot, I’d buy it. Maybe it makes me sound cheap, but I don’t buy polish more expensive than Butter London or Illamasqua. (When Illamasqua was available here… :( )

Everyone’s different, but my lipsticks can wear off super fast, but the Rouge Automatique I wear all the time (Bal de Mai) and most of the Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks I have wear very, very well.

I drink […]

I’m ambivalent about it. For the most part, if the packaging isn’t velour or rubberized plastic, I’m pretty happy.

Can’t make a decent black eyeliner? Go home, bareMinerals, you’re drunk.

It’s really, really hard to tell, based on how terribly it swatched, but Perpetual Plum reminds me a bit of the d/c UD eyeliner 1999.

In this day and age, how does a competitive makeup brand utterly fail at ALL […]

Quinctia commented on the post, Buxom Winner Takes All Lip Set Review, Photos, Swatches 2 weeks, 5 days ago

I really like tingling lip products (I’m just weird and like the feeling, I honestly don’t see an effect from them), so I like the Buxom lip polishes all right. Too bad the creams look so bad, the frosted […]

Milani is ridiculously competitive when it comes to the color cosmetics. I wish they got more B&M space. I see them mentioned more and more in blogs and reviews, so hopefully they’ll catch on like Nyx. I keep […]

Someday, I will get one of these for the bottle, I swear. But I don’t like any of these shades, so this year will not be that someday.

I’d probably wear the Vivian lipstick and the Orgasm polish first.

That Navy is niiiiiiice. If I didn’t already know how little I reach for dark blue shadows, I’d probably be wanting it badly.

(It’s weird…blue’s my favorite color, but I reach for jewel tones of purple and […]

It’s a matte formula, but I found it comfortable enough, especially for what’s essentially a $2-3 lipstick. I’d wager it outperforms those KvD ones just on the reviews of them I’ve seen.

Only thing about it is, […]
