No, but I have had testers/displays swatch differently, which was most likely due to the myriad of fingers being constantly dipped into the products on a daily basis…

If a brand is going to do a palette that consists of mainly permanent shades, they should just commit todoing all pepermanent shades…

I was just thinking how that Carbon looks bad, but not in the same way as others, LOL! It doesn’t look as dry, and seems far less pigmented…

OT (sort of!), while I was playing with my Gravitas palette, I […]

Not only is it too dupeable, these palettes tend to contain primarily permanent shades, and even the “LE” shades are just one-offs from the permanent range… It’s not just MAC, either; I’ve skipped the last few […]

Amy commented on the post, What part of your makeup usually takes you the longest? 2 days, 15 hours ago

It’s a tossup between figuring out what to use/wear, and washing my brushes, LOL!

Unless I’m doing something elaborate/intricate, particularly on the eyes, I can do a complete look in less than 10 minutes, and […]

If you have nudes in your stash already that you find too warm, try the NYX Macaroons lipstick in Earl Grey! It’s only about $6, and plays nice with every lipstick I’ve tried it it with. HTH

Was it Philosophy Miracle-something, and comes in a white pump container? That’s the *only* “eye cream” I found to have even the slightest effect, and didn’t irritate my eyes…

Many “eye creams” also contain ingredients that plump the skin in the area, but it’s only as long as one uses the product. Women (and men!) will be persuaded to try a product at a counter, and *will* see a […]

Haul: CoverGirl lip gloss in Melted Toffee (similar in color to MAC Obviously Bare), e.l.f. Cool Matte Bronzer (I ended up loving the color so much, I went back for another, but it’s on the powdery side, so I’ll […]

Amy commented on the post, Do you think eye cream is a must-have? 4 days, 16 hours ago

For me personally, it is. I have extremely dry lids & under eye area, so not only is moisturizing important for appearance, it also makes my eyes more comfortable. That said, I don’t necessarily need a cream […]

It looks to me like a little bin/basket used to hold small items in the bathroom. You may have luck checking Bed, Bath, & Beyond, Target, etc… HTH!

Nice palette, and all the shades play well together-and would work for many-, however, I can’t justify buying it… I can dupe this from my NARS stash alone, LOL!

For anyone interested in just the green shade, […]

Amy commented on the post, Hit List: Best Buffer Brush 5 days ago

Ditto! I use both interchangeably, depending on which one I find first, or sometimes which is clean… I’m also a big fan of the Physician’s Formula flat-top mineral kabuki brush, but I don’t know if it’s still available.

Amy commented on the post, How do you store your double-ended brushes? 5 days ago

Since I primarily use mine on-the-go, I just keep the ones I use most often in an old brush/pencil pouch, and the rest in a hard, rectangular clutch that came with a Sonia Kashuk brush set years ago. The clutch is […]

Amy commented on the post, How do you apply cream blush? 5 days, 22 hours ago

I apply with a paddle brush, then buff it out with a buffing brush, which depends upon which blush I’m using. The Real Techniques Expert Face Brush is the one I use most often, though!

The cheek stain is what sold me on this set, and I’m loving the shadows, too! I thought the lip products would end up in my daughter’s stash, but I kind of like those, too.

As a 40+ mom, I need a stash of more […]

I agree! As someone with around 10 “different” tarte palettes, I’ve skipped buying any for the last couple of years. However, this one just seemed to call to me!

If only the Ita brush stayed in stock long enough, LOL!

Okay, at $59, this is even more tempting… Unless I can manage to grab the full-size Ita!
