Amy commented on the post, What one makeup palette do you wish you had purchased? 1 day, 4 hours ago

I’m still irked by the Urban Decay/Vice LTD situation… There were only a couple of shades I wanted/don’t have, but it just would have made everything more “complete”.

I also kept putting off the tarte […]

It could be because they get their pigments from a third-party distributor, who may get it from yet another source, and so on, or they bought one batch from one source, and another batch from someone else. I’m […]

I don’t get all the hate for those-I have taken naps wearing them, and woke up flawless!

The first/”warmer” palette is all permanent, with the exception of Colombo (vintage gold), although there are other golds available. The second/”cooler” palette has all new shades, withnthe exception of Pandora I & II.

Amy commented on the post, Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette for Spring 2015 1 day, 17 hours ago

I’ve learned to not rely on promo pics-more often than not, they are completely inaccurate. I have an almost unhealthy obsession with contour products, and I love the KvD line, so I’m really looking forward to […]

I own eyeshadow primers in every brand of eyeshadow I wear regularly. Most people have only one they know works for the, perhaps a second for more “finicky” products, but I own about 10… I can’t even allow […]

That’s my biggest apprehension in trying Asian brands-I *need* to know the ingredients, and the regulatory policies in manufacturing/selling skincare products. Granted, I think the US is a bit too stringent on […]

MAC just wants to get you to buy Fix+, LOL!

March 15 seems like a late release date for Spring… Summer typically gets released April 15.

I will *definitely* be picking up the Multiple & the second palette!

I really like Beau, but since Blushing Beige has been on my list for a while. I think I’ll just go with that. They’re far too similar to spend the extra $25, which I can use toward something else.

It seems to me that the “look” for Spring is going to be sheer, “watercolor” eyes, and shiny, bright lips & cheeks, so I can see this as being intentional.

Well, considering I do everything in my power to get my *straight*, I have no use for them… My hair is quite wavy on its own, far too voluminous (especially now that it’s above the shoulder), and thick, so I […]

While these are pink, I find them to lean quite warm…

Amy commented on the post, How has your makeup collection evolved? 3 days, 4 hours ago

When I first started wearing makeup, I was all about lipstick. Then, in my 20s, it was eyeshadow, which is still what I’m most passionate about. However, over the last 2 years, or so, I’ve added a myriad of […]

Amy commented on the post, What’s your go-to holiday lip? 3 days, 11 hours ago

I worked many years as a waitress, and several restaurants were very high-traffic, so many glasses & utensils would slip past the doshwasher/busser/waitstaff, and end up on a table-which would result in a negative […]

A pale pink or nude-I’m too busy eating to worry about my lipstick, LOL! I remove my lipstick before eating/drinking, so I need something that goes on/comes off with ease. One of my biggest pet peeves is lipstick […]

Amy commented on the post, What’s your go-to cheek color combination lately? 4 days, 4 hours ago

I just changed foundation, which is Maybelline Fit Me in 110, and actually pulls *neutral* on me (I typically end up with foundation that pulls warm…), so I’ve been playing around with new combos. That said, […]

Amy commented on the post, What was the last blush you wore? 5 days, 5 hours ago

An embarrassingly *old* L’OrĂ©al True Match blush in Sculpted Rose. I don’t recall when I bought it, but it was when they were still in the clear square case… I’ve been wearing it all week.

The deeper shade just looked more like a mauvey-wine in the promos… Also, the light coral shade won’t work for me, either-but I really like the highlighter!
