OK, so I’m gonna have to take a moment here… let’s just break this down:

- Aladdin wass my favourite movie as a kid (like, I mean *favourite* – I can actually pretty much recite the entire script including […]

Love the look of the left hand four – especially curious how ‘copper red’ swatches out! Also, ‘milk tea’ is a great name for that first shade :-)

This is all so clean and organised! Most of my makeup is in a jumble in a shoebox, except for one very specific example which I might share with you if you’re asking for submissions! All my UD liners are held […]

Even though it looks terrible on me, I kind of have this *thing* for elephant grey nail polish ;-) Pagan is awesome in colour, but I wish it were opaque! I love jellies, but I can somehow see this one being really […]

Hm… probably Bloom lipsticks! They’re really nice, and it’s an underappreciated brand, I think!

The MUFE is a great dupe, but what I’m slowly learning from all of these dupe lists for lipsticks is that what I really need in my life is ALL the UD revolution lipsticks (bar the really ‘nude’ one). :-D

I thought ‘teal’ too, almost immediately when I saw it in the swatch! :-D I love the idea of the lipstick, and the potential for mixing and tinting. Since it stains, I wonder if it might make a good stain base to […]

Ah, so pretty :-) I’m in a position to collect (I only own like 3 blushes), but not a position to get access to this brand easily just yet! I’d love to get the Guimauve one, but perhaps in the meantime I’ll have […]

I too wish the teal had a little more oomph to it, and the palette is a bit warmforme, but I love the colour combination and the look you did with it is awesome! :-D Especially after all the delicate Chanel quad […]

Funnily enough, Poison is my favourite out of these! Technopagan is pretty, but I actually feel that as a polish, it’s more dupeable than not. Part of the attraction of the Technopagan Lip Tar is that it’s so hard […]

This is a good answer :-)

Hm… It’s a tie between Bloom Tangerine lipstick and Urban Decay Demolition liner! :-D

OK… I’d forgive this palette for that golden sheened bright pink! Mind you, this is because I fell in love with that shade in the Too Faced Country palette, which if I could get my hands on it here might be […]

I so want to try one of these (either in pressed or liquid form!). This shade isn’t the right one for me, but if you can rock the warmth in it, it’s a beautiful shade ;-)

I don’t mind them (my lips are zombie enough for most tints to show up, LOL!) but I’d probably go for a sheer to medium pigment lipstick that was hydrating for day wear. When I have a cold and want to do my nose […]

This one looks a little too dry in end-appearance for me, but the colour really is very pretty! I have trouble keeping my lips totally smooth (especially with it being Winter here at the moment!), so this one […]

Sylirael commented on the post, How do you apply cream blush? 2 days, 20 hours ago

With my fingers – dabbing it on and then blending it out with quick sort of tap/smear-ing motions.
My cream blush BFF (Chanel Affinite) is sporting a nice clean fingertip-induced hollow in the centre!

Sylirael commented on the post, How much of your beauty shopping do you do online? 3 days, 11 hours ago

I don’t instinctively shop onine, as we have testers available in NZ, so I like to try before I buy.

Having said that, better deals are to be found online and of course if I want to buy anything from my […]

Bahahaha :-D You’ve seen my haul of new (to me) brands from Dubai, right?! It’s one of the major things I look for If I’m going to go retail shopping when I travel! Partly that’s due to the dearth of brands […]
