Wow, Barbara is an amazing nude/MLBB shade for you, Christine! :-D I think, just out of these ones, Anita would probably be the best for me, although they might all lean either a little too warm or a little to […]

Your skin tone/coloring: cool-neutral vampire

Best brand for lipstick? Oof, that’s a hard one! I tend to think, though, that if you average across all factors (price, shade range, textures, hydration, […]

There are lots of really pretty colours in here (Silk Robe, Fingerpaint Art, Bubble Bath, Handpicked flowers to name a few), but I feel like I can probably ‘more or less’ dupe a bunch with my current palettes. […]

*sniffle* :-(

Honestly. KvD, if you’re going to get us all excited by making a lipstick that’s actually purple, could you please also make it, you know, good? From under my tinfoil hat, I kind of suspect that […]

Well. First Hourglass releases histological slides as blush, and now Armani is releasing plant tissue sections as eyeshadow! :-D Love it ^_^

Also, I see a purple lipstick…

Chanel Frisson :-) It goes with everything, makes my nails look instantly helathy and more polished (ba dum TISH!!), and even has a touch of sparkle. It is my conference nail polish! You can even get different […]

Ye Gods!

First, I’m so sorry that you had two F’s in one day (I suspect that’s not necessarily the timespan within which you tested them, but still – two Fs is just sad!), and that you had to put this product […]

I see in the comments that many people share my problem, which is that most of the ones within my shade range are too warm/orange/red. I see this a lot on blogs, vlogs, you name it, actually. Obviously they need […]

OK, let’s try and find a positive…. the blue shade wasn’t the worst one!! :-D …But then …the purple shades were beyond terrible… :-(

Dammit.

I tried!

Well, OCC basically did it recently with Technopagan, so now I’ll have to thinkn of something else, LOL!

Hm…perhaps the absolutely perfect muted deep pink? With a little bit of sparkle for dimension? Usually […]

Naww, this was the duo I was most looking forward to from that promo lineup from BM you posted a while ago! It’s a bit sad that the teal shade wasn’t quite up to the usual BM standard!

Hm. Well, it breaks my flamboyant little rogue heart that this one did better than the colourful one (:-P), but I’m glad at least that it wasn’t another F! At the same time, its also a terrible shame, especially […]

Wow! You go absolutely the most gorgeous effect from this blush O_o. My heart still belongs to Exhibit A, as bright red/orange blushes I want to try go (I like the added redness), but this one is very pretty indeed on you!

Wow! So many almost exact dupes! :-D I kind of like that, though, because it means there’s a range of price points, brands, finishes and levels of comfort to choose from. Although Powerful probably won’t be my […]

I like the sparkle in Red Strass! :-D Heh, the minute I saw the lip swatch of Very Pink, I immediately thought ‘hmm, Revlon!’. I was wondering about a lip butter, but I see Whimsical on your list! :-D

God help […]

Silvia and Dominique are gorgeous! :-D Even if Dominique has a slight greyness to it – i think that might be what I like about it!

Also: <3 Vivien!!! i am totally obsessed with MJ Cabaret. It's nice to see a […]

Hm…maybe the perfect medium periwinkle blurple colour, with ethereal pale gold shimmer. Mostly, i’d create one that was readily available and reasonably priced in NZ! :-D

Ooh… Nightlife is even prettier then Poker Face! It really is a shame about Jackpot – kind of reminds me of my recent swatching (and your review) of the Gold Souk shade from the Sleek Arabian Nights plalette! […]

Gah, I love the names that NARS gives its eyeshadows! Makes the travel bug in me get restless :-) Fez was part of our honeymoon, so I have an immediate attachment to the shade, despite it not being perhaps my […]

I have very fond memories of playing Sim City 2000 as a child :-) As an adult, the closest I get to sim games is Civilization V, and man, is it hard not to play more than an hour of that at a time! :-D
