Les Fauves – I caved when I realised I was basically looking for individual dupes for all the colours in the palette anyway, so I may as well just get it all in one convenient place. :) I think it’s different in […]

I started to suddenly get really bad allergies when I was 13 and moved house. I’ve found treatment that actually works, but if I do suddenly get bad allergy day, I would probably forgo all makeup as it would […]

Estee Lauder Sensuous Rose is a great, very “natural” looking colour on me.
But Chanel Presage is the one I reach for most. The formula makes it super easy to tone down.

I like the look of this formula! And now that sephora ships to the UK, I can actually try these out! Blood Orange looks like a gorgeous colour. And I don’t know if they have one, but a pinky-red in that formula […]

strangelighting commented on the post, What color eyeshadow do you reach for most often? 3 days, 15 hours ago

Coppers and Bronzes are usually easy to wear for me. Strangely, golds not so much.

Oh, I might have to check out Geneva!

Though I was planning to get Rose Dentelle, which is cheaper and I do prefer a more satin finish…

Orange-reds aren’t usually my thing, but Mangrove looks so tempting! It looks really good on you Christine!

Gah, I love this kind of colour. But I’m hoping something like it is included in a palette or something. I can’t justify buying higher end eyeshadow singles unless it’s a colour I would use very regularly.

I really hope these are good! I need some “grab and go” lipglosses and a lot of these shades look right up my alley.

Profile picture of strangelighting

I want to like this, because I’m in need of a contouring shade and highlighter, so this is super convenient, but I’m worried the contour shade won’t work on my skintone. I use Nars TM in Groenland, does have any […]

Generally, if I want opaque I’ll opt for lipstick instead, but too sheer seems pointless – somewhere around semisheer and semi-opaque I guess.

Ooh, Chaos is really tempting me even though I don’t normally like blue nail polish (Which is ridiculous as literally about 90% of my wardrobe consists of blue).

Ahh, I’m really torn on the eyeshadow palette – most of the colours look right up my alley, but the three paler ones on the right are probably too dark for my weirdly dark eyelids.

This is gorgeous – I love the almost lit-from-within glow it gives off.

I know you did the scarlet season a while back, have you thought about doing something similar? There are just so many beautiful reds that […]

Spectrum looks lovely!

I know a lot people find them boring, but I love red nail polish. It’s a colour I love no matter what my mood or the time of year.

I just picked up Bender a couple of days ago! Love the colour, it’s pretty much an exact match to one of my absolute favourite polishes (A England Dragon).

I want to try and pair it with a grayish, maybe […]

Oh, I hope these are good… actually for my wallets sake I hope they’re terrible. I really like the look of 2, 3, 6 and 8 particularly.
