Ellie commented on the post, Do you find salespeople at the beauty counter helpful? 1 week, 4 days ago

I generally research products before I buy them, So, when I go to the counter I usually know what I want and don’t need much help at all.

Ellie commented on the post, What will make you return a product? 1 week, 6 days ago

I’m originally not from the US, so I’m used to the “once you buy it, you can’t give it back” policy. It’s weird but when I first moved to the US, I felt awful about returning products, so I would never do it. I […]

Ellie commented on the post, What will make you return a product? 1 week, 6 days ago

I didn’t use to return many products, usually just if they were broken or really bad, but not if I wasn’t really using them.
Lately, I’ve been trying to save a bit of money, so I have a new deal with myself. I […]

That’s what I was thinking. I love glitter, I’m not shy, I’ve been known to wear it to work, but these are way too chunky. Lit is still my sparkle of choice. :)

Ellie commented on the post, Hit List: Most Long-Wearing Nail Polish 1 month ago

Did it stain your nails? I have several Kiko nail polishes, but I never use them because they stain my nails really bad, no matter what base I use.

I’m the same. I tend to change my nail polish every third day for that reason.
However, Illamasqua usually wears a little longer. The same is true for Zoya Pixie Dust polishes. I have a Sparitual textured polish […]

Ellie commented on the post, How long should lipstick last? 1 month ago

Oh I don’t like reapplying. I feel it never looks as good as when it’s freshly done. I always prefer to remove it completely, moisturize again and they apply it from scratch.

Ellie commented on the post, How long should lipstick last? 1 month ago

I can’t do long lasting formulas, I talk a lot for work and I remove my lipstick when I eat. So, it usually doesn’t really last more than a couple of hours.

Ellie commented on the post, How many eyeshadows do you use in a look on average? 1 month ago

1 sticky base (paint pot or similar)
(1 overall neutral)
1-2 on lid
1 on the crease
(1 on the outer V)
1 to highlight
(1 on the inner corner – often the same as the highlight)
So, I think the average is about 5.

I so wish they had a store where I live. I’d be there every day! :P

It may have only two colors that are exactly the same as the holiday palette, but it still seems way to similar to justify the purchase.

Lucky you! My shadow becomes muddy within a couple of hours because of my eye shape… even with primer.

Nail polish usually barely lasts a 24-48 hours on me (I put on nail polish last night and this morning it was chipped. How, I don’t know since I only slept…) I clean my nails, use base and top coat, but still I […]

I used to buy MAC a lot. Then they started to sell to China and I decided to pay more attention to animal testing. At first, I thought it would be hard and that I would miss MAC, but the more I explored the […]
