Barbara commented on the post, Best Makeup Primer for Dry Skin 1 day, 10 hours ago

I like the eyeshadow palette, the shades are nothing I have in my collection now. Hopefully it works well, since the Les 4 since to have random levels quality

Not that I think paying $70 for just three eyeshadows is reasonable, but I really love those colors and the packaging. I hope you will do a review!

Barbara commented on the post, What color blush do you gravitate towards most? 2 weeks, 5 days ago

Dusty rose tones for a natural flush. I love Hourglass’s Mood Exposure and Armani’s sheer blush #10 (long discontinued but it has lasted years for me)
