Collection NZ Lasting Perfection Concealer in 01 Fair (whatever the lightest shade is). I bought this thing *at the supermarket*. For like $11 (on special). For anyone shocked at how special I think that price is, […]

Things like this keep reminding me how much I want to get Lure and Transvaal… :-D Grey is such a great eyeliner colour. It is really surprising that MAC doesn’t have more in that vein in the permanent line!

Lancome’s matte eyeshadow single in Tres Chocolat! I can use it:

-As a dark, fairly neutral brown eyeshadow on the lid or lash line.
-As a brow powder
-to set or smudge eyeliner, specifically my favourite UD […]

The thing for me about marbled products, especially where there really is a significant variation, and it means something for the colour/finish is that they look gorgeous (or like bacon, Hourglass), but it sort of […]

Hehe, you’re welcome to it :-D I started to write ‘float my boat’, and was like NOPE, WE’RE ROGUING IT UP IN HERE. ^_^

I will be very interested indeed to see those lipglosses!! Given recent misadventures,however, I have the sneaking suspicion that they will either all look the same on (basically clear), or if the pigment is […]

Funnily enough, I never really pamper *myself* when it comes to beauty – it’s always getting a foot massage or a pedicure from the wizard (my husband) LOL! :-D

If we had a bathtub, it would be a scented […]

I like the look of everything (especially the lip set and the mascara/liner) except the eyeshadow palette. Don’t get me wrong, I’m keen to see how a few of the shades swatch, but it looks terribly, terribly warm […]

I like the colour, but for some reason, blushes are where I draw the line at open sparkle. This is a bit weird, since I’m the person who uses Chanel Fantasme to adorn her face and collarbones for special […]

Your skin tone/coloring: Cool-neutral vampire

Favorite eyeshadow palette of all time? Probably the UD Naked 2 in terms of what I use often, although I don’t actually own *that* many palettes.

Favorite blush […]

You’re rocking pretty much all of these, LOL! Severine looks like your perfect ‘skin’ nude – I wonder if Strange Magic would do the same for me, LOL! (unlike you though, I’d still look dead ^_^)

I really like […]

O_O OK, so Citrine might just have to be my gateway into orange lippies. Maybe Sunstone might have to find its way to me too >_> Now I just have to wait the 6 months or so until Revlon brings them down here, LOL! […]

I like all of these except the first one again – just because it has that white cast underneath. It still looks like a nice lipstick, though. Jack intrigues me because of its hint of purple (it’s one of the ones […]

It matters most for me in eyeshadows. Really warm toned eyeshadows make me look positively diseased. Well, I can use them as a tiny accent maybe, but not in any significant capacity. Shimmer helps, though. When it […]

OK, I realise this is maybe a bit pointless but I’m gonna go rogue and tell Too Faced what they *should* have done here! I also realise this palette isn’t *terrible* or anything, it just kind of irritates me what […]

Ahh, I really want one of these shapes of powder brush. A big soft fluffy one :-) I’ve had my eye on the Suqqu one, but then I keep seeing all sorts of nice things from the -hodos, and even a few less ‘exclusive’ […]

I like that they made a palette of these! I think a lot of people probably wanted to try these shadows, but baulked a little at buying singles (I know I did, especially at NZ prices, LOL!). This is a really good […]

Sylirael commented on the post, Do you like layering lip products? 1 week, 1 day ago

I doooo………but it depends on the lip products. I want to love layering lipgloss over lipstick, but sadly I find a lot of the combinations I want to do end up a little too goopy (you know, the kind where it […]

…all of them? LOL! I don’t have many palettes, but they all get about the same (small) amount of use. That being said, it’s more like… there are *shades* in each palette that I thought I would use more often, but don’t.
