The brand was picked up by a large Japanese compan a while back, so things may have changed. I haven’t purchased anything since the takeover, but I’ve noticed several changes in terms of marketing & actual […]

Red is her “signature” lip color, so maybe she wanted to be sure there was a red everyone could/would wear? Of the 4, there are only 2 I would even try, and since one’s a matte & the other metallic, to me they’re […]

Okay… I think I’m going to need that palette. I’m really curious to see how Brass Knuckles translates into powder form; it was the reason I bought my first KvD palette, Gypsy, but the cream dried out within weeks…

Because Kat von D is a huuuge fan of Depeche Mode, and that album may hold some sort of meaning to her? She names *all* of her shades after people, places, bands, etc… that hold special places in her heart. […]

Amy commented on the post, What makeup application technique do you want to learn most? 10 hours, 17 minutes ago

I’m actually quite content/confident in my application skills, but I’m always on the hunt for the best products to use. For example, I’d like to work more on sculpting my brows, and although I have the technique […]

$115 on eBay isn’t that bad, all things considered, LOL! I think I’d actually pay that amount… There are some shades in here that I really like, and a few others I’ve considered picking up, so even at $115, I’d […]

I don’t find them any more “unsanitary” than stick balms. I always use a brush/spatula, anyway, with *all* of my lip products regardless of form, and I actually think it’s grosser to apply directly to the lips […]

Amy commented on the post, What beauty products are on your holiday wish list this year? 1 day, 11 hours ago

UD Vice 3 & LTD, the tarte set with the 20-palette, and of course-NARS Holiday collection has 3 eyeshadow singles that are all gorgeous. I also plan to pick up the NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadows if/when Sephora […]

Amy commented on the post, What’s your routine if you want the most long-lasting lip color? 1 day, 12 hours ago

That’s when I just rely on MLBB shades. I’ve done customer service jobs all my working life, and I’ve *never* not been able to duck in the bathroom at some point and swipe on my lipstick. On days where I had […]

These look denser/creamier than the “regular” MAC lipsticks, so I may end up with To Savor…

How sad is it when the purples are actually among the *better* swatches, LOL! For a collector, this would make a nice gift/purchase, since it would likely never even be used, but for those of us looking to *wear* […]

I’d like to see dupes, in general. I think an actual “review”, whether in depth or a gloss over, is pointless. For one, we can see in the swatches how it will perform, and the “quality”, and you also mentioned […]

Amy commented on the post, How do you figure out what makeup to wear? 2 days, 10 hours ago

For “everyday”, I’ll either blindly grab a random eyeshadow palette and go from there, or if something is new(er), I may want to play around with it, and the rest of my makeup follows suit. I have a separate bin […]

It was LE, and apparently the “regular” 10-pans were DC’d some time ago. It seems if one wants tarte eyeshadows, they’ll have to wait for seasonal LE palettes, which of course will sell out… It looks like tarte […]

Some of us always use clean brushes, and when you consider all the preservatives/chemicals in makeup, the chances of anything powder going “bad” is slim to none. I have powders that are even older, and my skin has […]

Ditto… I like this waaay less than I thought I would-which is a good thing, considering hownmuch blush I’ve picked up just this year.

The Cheek Stain reminds me a little of NARS Multiple in Maldives, only softer & more glossy/less shimmery.

No, they are a bit “blah”, but that’s what I like about them. I get my “color” with NARS & UD, but due to my lifestyle, sometimes I need shades I can just throw on, and have them do the work for me, and tarte […]

In spite of the seemingly obligatory bronzy-gold shades, this palette looks like it may be worth picking up, especially considering the price & additional products.

I bring my lipstick with me, in a black velvet lipstick case… I’ve never been in a situation where I couldn’t reapply/touch-up my lipstick, nor can I imagine what that could be. Lip products are the easiest […]
