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 […]

Here’s me: “Bishop Blue looks pretty unique, I might go swatch it if it’s–” My brain can’t even finish the thought because I’ve scrolled down to the F.

MAC gets to go sit in the time out corner next to Bare Minerals. If you can’t make the formula work splendidly in black, you probably shouldn’t market the eyeliner.

Meanwhile, on a crazy whim, I bought a couple […]

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.

Even if someone just had to have travel-suited Urban Decay, most would probably be better served with a Naked Basics palette and then whatever Flushed palette suited their skintone better. Those are nice, compact […]

This might sound crazy, but it’s mascara.

If I’m not wearing eye makeup, I find mascara completely unnecessary. Thing is, I wear eye makeup all the time now, so mascara is a daily thing. And mascara, along with […]

…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 month, 1 week ago

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

One of my fave BL shades!

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? 1 month, 1 week 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 […]
