Looking forward to the matte multiple review. The shade looks lovely based on the swatch.

Armani Flash Lacquer #523. Absolutely love it!

The colors look so great in the tube, so I am disappointed to see that they are so translucent. I was hoping for a middle ground; clearly I did not read the description first!

At least Chanel says outright that […]

Barbara commented on the post, MAC Pleasure Bomb Dupes & Comparisons 3 months ago

I’d make a submission, but since I haven’t tested out Pleasure Bomb in person to see the comparison, I feel like I should just throw out a possible dupe here: Urban Decay Catfight. It has a satin finish, but it […]

Wow, I need to check out Happy Go-Lucky, Red Balloon, and Toying Around. They look so pretty. This might be the first MAC collection I’m looking forward to!

I look forward to the in-depth reviews for 19. Wonder, 20. Eternal Red, and 25. Stella. I love how they look on you!

Wow this looks so promising and I love the modern packaging. I might get this after testing it myself and after your review.

The orange blush and the liquid bronzer definitely caught my eye.

I agree with your assessment on this palette’s price hike within the brand. It’s one thing if I were paying $80 for Chanel or Armani because I am also buying into the image and connotations (and hopefully the […]

I’ve been eyeing Guerlain Attrape-Coeur for a while, but Snow Peach seems like the perfect dupe, especially given the price. I might actually run out to buy today. Thanks!

Primers, loose powders/pigments, and blush. Primers just add to the “weight” of makeup and make my face even greasier than usual, loose powders are a MAJOR hassle for me, and blush would be overkill for my […]

Barbara commented on the post, Round-up: MAC Mineralize Glass Collection for Spring 2014 4 months, 1 week ago

Great roundup! It’s a bit surprising to me that any makeup company would release such similar shades in the same LE collection (regarding the lip glasses).

I normally stay away from fuchsia shades but Good […]

Oooh I’ll definitely have to consider getting a color from this line (when Sephora restocks it, it’s selling out fast!). I love how it looks and I’m a sucker for bright mattes.

Barbara commented on the post, What type of lipstick finishes work best on you? 5 months, 2 weeks ago

I love velvety mattes because they seem to flatter me and the shape of my lips best. My skin tends to be oily so adding anything glossy can be overkill.

I’ve been really impressed with the pale shades not appearing streaky or chalky in action, especially with a color like Frivolous Pink.

I got Rue when Zoya had their 3 free promotion and it’s such a lovely “nude-ish” color. I’m glad you got the same positive experience. I was afraid it was going to look too much like a wedding polish color to wear […]

Wow, the finish alone of this lipstick is so lovely
