Happy Sunday!

I hope you’re having a relaxing, enjoyable Sunday, however you may be spending it! :) We had a great day with Shaun’s family on Saturday, and today is mostly hanging out, getting brunch later, and doing some grocery shopping. I’m also looking forward to writing up some reviews later (well, hopefully!) of the new NARS’ Matte Multiples. Any plans today? How was your Saturday?

  7. Hi, Christine. I have trouble accessing your site on my Android OS smart phone – when I go to your site, it will partially load (to the point where I can see the banner), but then inevitably my entire web browser will shut down. Have any of your other readers mentioned this problem? It’s a bummer when I want to reference your swatches or reviews while I’m out and about! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    • Hi Pteetsa,

      We know it happens to a minority of phones (possibly as little as less than 1%), because we have tested it on the phones that make up the majority of devices that view our site. Could you tell me the actual model? It works just fine on Android in general – it is something specific to certain phones. We haven’t been able to find a fix that has worked – we have definitely tried and have spent weeks on looking into it (including going to stores and testing phones there!) – but we can’t replicate it on our end, so it’s hard to confirm if anything we’ve done does anything (obviously, it hasn’t).

        It happens on my HTC Status, as well. What I sometimes have to do is Google the particular product/shade, and scroll through the images. Then, I click/open that page, and most times it comes up (although there are times I have to do this step 3-4+ times, but this site comes up within the first 10 images). Other times, I just continue to to try to open the home page, and after a few tries, it usually comes/stays up. HTH

        • Thanks, Amy! I will pass this info on. I’m told they think it is possibly related to particular version of Android, but they don’t know of a fix for it at this point.

      • Thanks for your reply! I’m using a Samsung Galaxy S2 from T-Mobile. Admittedly, it is an older model. So weird that it only happens to a few phones!

        • Thank you! I talked to my husband, and he did confirm with me (because I’m not usually the technical person!) that is one of the models that has had issues. I’m told they think it is possibly related to particular version of Android, but they don’t know of a fix for it at this point.

  8. Saturday was good went out for one of my boyfriends friends birthday for drinks which was fun but have spent the day feeling very fragile and hungover in bed.

    Thank you, Christine! ♥

    Glad to hear you had a good time on the weekend! Do you usually stop by at a makeup aisle at the grocery store? (Because I do! Haha!)

    Have you ever reviewed Givenchy Gelée D’Interdit Smoothing Gloss Balm Crystal Shine? The colors are very interesting. Also, will you be reviewing NYX’s new baked blushes and eye shadows or the Hot Singles eyeshadows?
