Bliss, Honeymoon, Love Affair, Spellbound and Summer Fling will all be ones I’m ordering as soon as they’re released, regardless of the fact that I’ve already got enough blush for 5 lifetimes.

SandraJT commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Mattifying Face Primers 2 months, 3 weeks ago

I detest silicone primers. Every single one I’ve tried has been horrible crap which breaks me out. Two great mattening face primers WITHOUT silicones, which took me years to find:

1) Nurturing Force Blot Out – […]

Why why WHY do the most expensive brands continue to use such crappy ingredients? TALC, first thing on the label. I’d far rather buy a blush from theBalm, a company which makes quality, talc-free products.

Thank the dog gods, no stinky, putrid fig!

I love EL lipsticks, some of the best around, but damn their scent makes my stomach lurch and heave. Just can’t wear them based on the scent alone :-( Gonna have to […]

Holy mother of all that is putrid and rank….lanolin, loads of paraffin, yet more lanolin AND mineral oil? For $55??? Are they insane? Cheap, crappy ingredients from bloody eons ago that I wouldn’t put anywhere […]

I tried them all in store and hated the texture of every single one. Not worth the price, by any stretch of the imagination.

Not a fan of this but the company does make a. loose illuminating powder that I own & really love. Their blush stains are also really amazing with phenomenal staying power.

I absolutely love EL lipstick formulas, but that nasty fake fig smell makes me sick to my stomach. Until now, I’ve had to avoid them altogether because of that. So glad they went with a different scent this time, […]

Love this. Definitely going to get one. It looks far warmed toned when swatched than I expected it to be.

Unfortunately, the smell and taste of EL lipsticks have always hugely turned me off. Unfortunate, because their formulas are pretty nice for the most part, and very pigmented. Love quite a few of these shades but […]

As much as I don’t like recommending this company due to customer service issues, mine is Silk Naturals tinted brow wax. Not sure of the exact name. A friend gave it to me. You get a lot of product for the money & […]

I have Demure & love it. It’s great for minimal makeup days. My lips are more pigmented than yours, so it looks different on me. It’s a great product for a nude lip. These remind me a lot of Tarte’s lip products […]

What is your meaning when you refer to using the product ‘wet’ or ‘dry’? Just wanted to clarify. Thanks :-)

Tried these in Sephora recently & passed them up that day for Chanel’s Intonation, but only because it’s limited edition & these are not. I’ll definitely be going back for at least a couple of this new MUF […]

So sad I missed out on this palette :-( How did I not see it when shopping?!? These shades are some of my favorites, especially the beautiful burgundy color.

Wow, seeing these all pathetically shriveled up worries me since I’ve now purchased 3 or 4, although none have looked like this brand new. I’d definitely – or definitely will – take them back for an exchange if […]

Diapason is beautiful, but I find all of these smudge like crazy when used as a liner. Even with powder shadow overtop to set. Although powder shadow doesn’t detract from the lovely sparkle & sheen, I’ve found. It […]

Way back when – not that long ago, actually – you could actually get away with no primer using WnW shadows, if you were in a hurry. Their pigmentation, texture & blendability was absolutely stellar. Now, […]

I bought one of these in the shade Demure – which is a gorgeous, slightly shimmery, warm nude pink – and love it. It was the ONLY shade I liked out of all on the display, actually. Reminds me very much of Tarte’s […]

If you’re considering either of these, RUN to your nearest Chanel before they sell out. I’m not kidding when I say they are both amazing shades in an equally amazing formulation. I’m warm toned but could wear both […]
