L’Oreal has had a comparable formula before, in my opinion–the HIP Chrome pencils were in the same vein as UD’s, the Milani Liquif’eye, etc. I think they’re all made in Germany and very similar in formulation.

Finding the naming a bit weird…Milani had a line of double-ended liners called Black Magic. Slightly different concept, each shade had a blackened end and a sparkly end. I’ve got the pink and the teal ones. I […]

I swear, I bought those just because looking at them made me happy. At least I waited until I could get them on sale to do that.

Milani Bella Blue lipstick. I’m finding it a bit of a stepping stone to something like KvD Poe. It’s definitely blue, but it’s just sheer enough to let a bit of natural lip color through.

I’ve only worn it out […]

Recently have been liking the Burt’s Bees formula after picking one up on clearance this summer (Sunny…something, it’s pink with gold). I bought another shade, Starry Night, that is a real darkened redder plum […]

I’d never wear that orange, but it looks pretty cool!

Aw, I already own Lovelight, Jilted, and Rapture (and that’s it for full size), so I was happy with the shade selection. I obviously happily recommend them, though! :D

I already have a barely used Ozone, […]

Quinctia commented on the post, What do you think the next big trend in nail polish will be? 4 days, 9 hours ago

I’ll be here in the corner hoping that flakies become an easier material to source, and there are tons of them, in various colors, made by everybody.

I love flakie glitter so much.

To me, the design of the Naked Basics palettes are perfect for traveling. Size wise, though, I think 9-12 pan with a group of three neutrals, a few colors, and a good shimmer sort of inner highlight color.

Non […]

Love this. Not entirely thrilled with the outside (why no central ud with that green crystal lettering like the other two?), but I otherwise really like the design of the Vice palettes. Especially compared to the […]

Quinctia commented on the post, 5 Beautiful Teal Eyeliners I Love 1 week, 4 days ago

Oooh, I can do five, too! :D

- UD 24/7 Liquid Liner in Siren – The first shade in the line I bought, I still think it’s great, and I ended up loving the formula/applicator.
- NYX Glam Aqua Luxe in Lagoon – […]

Quinctia commented on the post, 5 Bright Teal Eyeshadows to Try 1 week, 4 days ago

Aw, that’s too bad about the pigmentation for you. I took some quick swatch picks of my Infallible stash for a forum I was on awhile back, and I definitely see what you mean. However, I always wear primer on my […]

I agree on Deep End!

I also really like the L’Oreal Infallible shade Endless Sea.

I really like teal, but I wear it in eyeliner form more often than eyeshadow, I think. I like putting on a light, iridescent […]

Look, I’m not unreasonable. I just want everything that Urban Decay has ever made, plus a handful of my other favorites. ;)

Weird. Even the bullet LOOKS hard.

Though I will say, I kinda like the color and how it looks. But if it feels like hell, that’s not really worth it, especially for something in that price range!

Quinctia commented on the post, What item do you have the most backups of? 3 weeks, 5 days 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.
