I usually love Stila’s eyeshadow formula. Sure they tend to be on the powdery side, but the color payoff and soft, creamy texture make up for it.

But this. I really didn’t expect this. Just, ugh. What happened, Stila? :(

I’d probably go for a semi-opaque pink-red with gold, copper, and red shimmer/sparkles.

Murky green with pink-to-purple shift and a smattering of red and gold sparkles.

Ryou commented on the post, Which area do you apply makeup to first? 4 days, 23 hours ago

Nowadays, face. I do my eyes last because they water so much, and it tends to be worse the closer I apply make-up to my eyes to waking up. So I usually apply eyedrops, do the rest of my face, and leave the eyes […]

Ryou commented on the post, What scent do you dislike the most in makeup or beauty products? 5 days, 22 hours ago

All of them. Fragrance in make-up and facial skincare products make my eyes water and my skin itchy. It’s not like it’s necessary or beneficial, anyway. :/

Ryou commented on the post, How do you deal with oil/shine throughout the day? 1 week ago

Palladio blotting paper+powder! I love that one side allows me to soak up oil while the other side is coated with powder that makes touch-up a breeze. I wouldn’t have to worry about it making a mess in my purse or […]

I’m generally not too fond of pre-made palettes because I don’t always love all the shades, so build your own palettes are great. I don’t love how price-wise it’s not always better value than singles, though.

Ryou commented on the post, How do you handle eyeshadow fall out? 1 week, 1 day ago

Usually with products like Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy or Darling Girl Glitter Glue. If I specifically know something has a lot of fall out, then I usually opt to do my base after I’ve done my eyes.

Hey, if you’re going to pay $50 for it, it better be multi-functional. :P

Look on the bright side: In a pinch you can probably use it to part your hair or to open letters. ;)

That’s one expensive eye-poking tool. :P

My usual question: Do you know if these are meant to replace the existing quads?

Thank you for the clarification! I’ve always wished Rebel was a bit warmer on me so Headliner might be a good alternative.

Ryou commented on the post, What is your biggest beauty concern at the moment? 1 week, 6 days ago

My infinitely watering eyes. I miss being able to wear eyeshadows without them going patchy in 30 seconds. :/

Huh, I wouldn’t have thought headliner is similar to Rebel at all. It looks redder to me, perhaps a bit lighter. Maybe it’s just the opacity or finish? Or is my monitor really in need of calibrating?

Ryou commented on the post, How do you bring out your eye color? 2 weeks ago

I don’t, it’s a losing battle with my brown-black eyes. Nothing short of wearing deep black smoky eye would help, sadly. So I just take advantage on the neutral hue of my eyes and wear all the different colors. ;)

Definitely an indie company! It would ensure I end up with great quality product, personalization, and the best part? It’s plausible. ;)

For this reason, I try to stick to smaller organizers rather than large, because I really hate it when my entire stack collapses because I take a single product out. Cue me yelling “TIMBER!” lol. With smaller […]
