Quinctia commented on the post, What item do you have the most backups of? 5 days, 22 hours ago

I don’t often do the backup thing. …however, UD discontinued my go-to eyeshadow primer, so I think I’ve got like four backups of Greed right now. Between it being daily use for me (I have gone through two of […]

I’m pretty sure the first blush I ever got (from my Mom for Christmas in ’94) was a trio in that line. It was definitely peachy, though…but I’m thinking you may be right on the Covergirl leanings, if I remember […]

Oh, a perfect gold highlighter in Tarte’s Amazonian Clay formula. (Plenty of blush lines do this…I want one from Tarte. XD)

I always find ONE shade in these things to be really nice, but they’re quints and that’s not a good thing. I only buy palettes for one shade at drugstore pricepoints…on SALE.

Just like how I’d wish they’d do more variety and release other colory versions of palettes in the Naked 2/Naked 3 packaging, I have to say I love the Basics packaging! UD, make some non-Naked 6-pans in this […]

That’s kind of how I felt about the first Basics, because I use black eyeshadow so rarely, any new addition with a black is just a pan I won’t use.

However, this one, with its dark brown being terrible, seems […]

Quinctia commented on the post, Tarte Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette V2 for Fall 2014 1 week, 6 days ago

Hey Tarte, you keep making these palettes with interesting packaging, right? I’m challenging you to make the product inside colored as interestingly as the packaging…for once!

I mean, just imagine if the […]

I keep waiting for Zoya to release one that will undoubtedly be the color of polish I’m least likely to wear.

Well, shoot, I was hoping the one with my name (Janet) would be a color I’d never wear.

Maybe I’ll just put in on my Amazon wishlist and hope someone else notices that it’s got my name when it comes time for […]

The Meijer near me which is my go-to for drugstore LE items never had them, it was bizarre. This is a store that not only got the Milani Bella Blue display, but has restocked it!

You have to buy those pencils from PF in trios, so I actually have a second black from another trio (purchased for its other two shades, naturally), so perhaps I should dig it up and inform it that it’s on standby […]

It’s pretty…

The grade of this shade plus the comparison to Sandstorm just makes me extra ticked I never found those Revlon lipsticks earlier this year…

Quinctia commented on the post, What high-end polish was worth the splurge? 2 weeks, 5 days ago

I got Illamasqua Raindrops and Swarm in a polish secret santa last year and was so, so happy!

In terms of things I’ve actually purchased, I think Butter London Knackered is so unique and awesome.

And I don’t […]

Quinctia commented on the post, Hit List: Most Moisturizing Lip Balm 2 weeks, 6 days ago

I love Jack Black, of course, and I have a few others I like. Vasoline Lip Therapy, TonyMoly Snail Lip Treatment, and the two lip balms I got from Rainbow Honey when I did their mystery bags a couple of months in […]

I’ve been using the same automatic black pencil from Physicians Formula for ages…it’s one of those things I stuck in my daily makeup bag, and use at least a couple times a week. Just on the top lid, though, […]

Quinctia commented on the post, What is your biggest beauty concern at the moment? 3 weeks, 1 day ago

Hmm, have a couple of healing hormonal zits on my chin, and I keep cutting the same spot on my right knee every time I shave my legs.

The latter one is really disappointing, because I’m not only being careless, […]

Hmm, I got Plushie for a deluxe sample a couple of weeks ago, and I felt it applied and wore well. Though, when I line with pencil, it’s generally a very thin line on the upper lid, so my application and usage […]

You don’t want 50 coats of lacquer on your furniture, either. They make specifically thick stuff for tabletops, but everything else? 2-3 coats, fine buffing in between.

Oh, I can imagine the effects of that many layers. Never drying, bubbling, edges peeling up…. Sounds fantastic and I want to spend $50 for it!

Maybe the brand known for shoes should’ve gotten someone who knew […]

Liquid foundation! It never goes on well for me. I can think of one that wasn’t entirely horrible: Urban Decay’s Naked Skin went on all right for me, though it was a bit too dry in formula for my winter skin at […]
