Warm, mid-toned brown eyeshadows like mac texture or makeup geek crΓ¨me brulee. They add that perfectly blended finishing touch to any eye look, but also look good buffed in the crease with a light shimmery or satin shade on the lid (mac mylar, mac all that glitters, makeup geek shimma shimma). Warm browns are my favorite go-to shades, especially when I’m in a hurry.

Creme finish nail polishes. Been on an absolute kick with them. So many indie brands focus on glitters or maybe shimmers, but there is just something so classy about a creme!

Plum! Fall has officially started (even though it already feels like winter here!) and my lips are plummed out. Also, I’ve been experimenting with berry eye looks and such. It’s my color for the moment!

Same here!
I LOOOOVE deep red lipsticks, and they work great with my coloring (NW15; dark brown hair; green eyes).
Lately, too, I’ve become obsessed with finding a concealer/foundation/C cream that will render my “pretty good” skin as close to flawless as humanly possible.
Yeah, well. I can dream, can’t I? πŸ™‚

A tie between new (just purchased) Urban Decay Anarchy lippie and Lip Tar in Strumpet for fall colors πŸ™‚ Lip Tars are SO much fun! I love mixing them for all new shades. The new Urban Decay lippies are gorgeous, creamy and long lasting for a cream and id like the slight stain Anarchy leaves behind.

If you asked me six months ago I would have said blush or cheek highlighters. But now I’m obsessed with lipstick in the red and/or burgundy family! I just recently got Russian Red (what took me so long?) and I LOVE it!

I have been obsessed with a red pigment I made for Halloween from my line. I will refrain from mentioning my line’s name, as I would never use your blog to advertise. It’s a brick/raspberry red I find beautiful.

Other than that, I’ve been obsessed with MAC’s Spider Queen Palette. Moss and Deep Purple are my favorite shades but I love them all. I also love my Anarchy Face Case by UD; not the shadows so much as the blush, eyeliner in “perversion” and lip pencil in “scandal” which looked amazing on you BTW!

I’m loving L’Oreal lately. I have been using their Infallible liquid liner everyday and their Voluminous False Fiber lashes. I want to try their Telescopic liner.

As far as lips, I’m obsessed with Maybelline’s vivids collection & Revlon’s lipstick in Raspberry Pie. Its a great color for fall. Raspberry Pie & OCC’s liptar in Meta are my fav fall colors, hands down!

I read so many of your reviews. I agree with your opinions almost 100% of the time!

Is there anyway I can send you some samples from my line? I WOULD NEVER ask you to write a review publicly. I do value your opinion greatly though. I don’t expect you to say yes. you’re very busy but it doesn’t hurt to ask!

Current brand obsessions include Guerlain, Hourglass, Nars, and OCC. Colours include oxblood, All Hail the Queen and rebel fox from butter London, Black Metal Dahlia, Role Play and Isherwood from OCC, teal+sapphire+emerald=I don’t know exactly what to call this color but I’m really loving it for clothing, and rose gold. Fall also gets lots of rich purples/jewel tones on eyes/cheeks, and dark lippys.

NARS Multiples; I’ve picked up 4 in the last month, or so, and am planning another next week! I’m also still on my (seemingly) neverending hunt for my HG highlight/contour pair…

I’ve been crazily obsessed with pastel mint shades lately, leaning slightly toward the blue side of the spectrum πŸ˜›

Anything red lately for me. And finishing powders. Any good rose gold recommendations as of late Christine? πŸ™‚
