Melissa commented on the post, Do keep original packaging? 9 months ago

I used to be very guilty of this. I used to keep packages for months, even after I knew I loved the product and it worked for me. I’ve made several makeup resolutions this year and one of them was to put a hault […]

Melissa commented on the post, How often do you buy a product just for the packaging? 9 months, 1 week ago

I’m sure I’ve been guilty of it a couple of times, but it’s not what draws me in. The only aspect of buying something because of packing is functionality. If, for example, a pressed powder is notorious for […]

Melissa commented on the post, Do you use a separate eye makeup remover? 9 months, 2 weeks ago

No need to when you’ve got a MU remover that works for the whole face. Plus I’d rather use my fingers on my eyes than a cotton round so I can have more control and be more gentle. I used to use coconut oil but it […]

Melissa commented on the post, What are your tips for resisting new beauty products? 9 months, 3 weeks ago

I have 2 personal guidelines.
1. Prioritize what you need. For example, I have yet to find a mineral foundation that I like so I should be looking into that rather than spending money on a new lipstick that I […]

Melissa commented on the post, Will you be making any beauty-related resolutions this year? 9 months, 3 weeks ago

I’m going on a beauty low-buy for the ENTIRE year. Realistically I don’t think that will be a problem because there are a few things I’m saving up for that I am equally as passionate about as makeup & beauty […]

Oh boy, I used that to set my foundation one day last month and had a HORRIFIC breakout afterwards. I blamed the foundation and returned it, but now I’m wondering if it was the lighting powder. I never used it on […]

Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Blissful. The color showed up on my finger but there was no pigmentation at all when I actually swatched it on my hand. I think I got a dud and I’ve heard of this happening to others as well.

Christine, I totally agree! My hair isn’t *too* long (a little past my shoulders) and it doesn’t take me a long time either, but I dread the mornings when I have to do the whole wash, blow dry, flat iron routine. […]

I love What A Feeling! It looks like it could possibly replace Revlon Strawberry Shortcake for me… which I love the color of but loathe the chalky consistency.

Melissa commented on the post, Do you use eye cream? 10 months ago

I agree. I started wearing eyecream when I was about 22, and looking back that was too much money wasted over the past 4 years. I now use Cetaphil Cream too and it works just as well. (And takes FOREVER to finish that tub!)

Melissa commented on the post, How do you respond to criticism about your makeup? 10 months ago

Well, it seems like a lot of people here would respond a lot more politely than I would. I would tell that person they could use some. Not because I care what they think, but because I treat people the way they treat me.

Melissa commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Eye Cream 10 months, 1 week ago

I agree. I’m 26, and after using eye creams for quite a few years now, I feel I’ve been wasting my money as I haven’t seen any beneficial outcomes. I don’t have major problems around my eye area (just a little […]

Lately, any of my Ambient Lighting powders, but I’m especially enjoying the palette.

My favorite beauty tip is to give your skin a break from foundation at least once or twice a week – it needs to breathe! :)
