Have your preferences changed for what you like in a foundation? (If so, how?)

Yes! I used to prefer higher coverage and more matte foundations, but now I tend to enjoy buildable, light-medium coverage with a more natural finish. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Tom Ford Naked Pink Eye Color Quad Review & Swatches

Naked Pink Tom Ford Beauty Naked Pink Eye Color Quad ($88.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new, limited edition peach palette for the holiday season. (Not sure why it isn’t called Naked Peach, honestly!) The quality was so-so with the lowest-rated shade being sheerer and more prone to fallout, which is more typical for this type of shade from Tom Ford (sparkly). Obviously, for a luxury price point, I would and do expect better since I’ve seen To...

Charlotte Love Flame & Red Wishes Tilbury Limitless Lucky Lips Reviews & Swatches

Love Flame Charlotte Tilbury Love Flame Limitless Lucky Lips ($34.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, deep orange-red with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage that applied evenly across my lips without dragging. The texture was smooth, velvety, and very lightweight in feel without emphasizing imperfections, though it wasn’t smoothing so I’d still recommend exfoliating prior to wearing this type of formu...

5 Tips When Shopping For Your First Pair Of Fake Lashes

Wanting to enhance your eyes doesn’t mean you don’t appreciate how you look. Sometimes, women just want to look all-glammed up, on special occasions or even on normal days. After all, there’s truth to the adage, ‘look good, feel good.’ Moreover, since a person’s eyes are the windows to their soul, it’s only natural to elevate their beauty. And one way to do so is to rock a pair of fake but natural and gorgeous-looking lashes. Because false eyelashes are some of the most popular cosmetic...

Pat McGrath Lunar Nude Sublime Skin Highlighter Review & Swatches

Lunar Nude Pat McGrath Lunar Nude Sublime Skin Highlighter ($60.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a medium, golden peach with warmer undertones and fine micro-sparkle that flashed blue and violet at times (though not a true duochrome). The powder highlighter had a smooth, lightly metallic sheen that delivered more shine than overt shimmer/sparkle on skin, so it didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The formula is a gel-powder hybrid, so it ha...

It’s supposed to be “sheer” in coverage and be a hydrating lip balm. It was, in fact, sheer in coverage and balm-like with good glide and a comfortable application, but it settled a bit into my deeper lip lines and caugh...

Have your preferences changed for what you like in an eyeshadow? (If so, how?)

I don’t think so. I still find I prefer more pigmented eyeshadows than ones that are sheerer, though I don’t mind having a more buildable formula so long as it’s still more medium/semi-opaque to begin with (sheerer than that I have found really don’t build up that well). — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

Deep Space Divinity Pat McGrath Deep Space Divinity Celestial Odyssey Luxe Quad ($54.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a new, limited edition smokier, neutral quad that included three metallic eyeshadows and one matte eyeshadow. All four shades were pigmented, while the matte needed to be built up slightly and the duochrome shimmer was more emollient so it didn’t apply as easily as the brand’s metallic eyeshadows typically do.

What do you like about liquid concealer? What don't you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Liquid Concealer Liquid concealer can be really versatile as it sheers out, builds up, and tends to play well with drier skin, so it can work for concealer acne, post-acne, under the eyes, etc. Sometimes, though, they can take awhile to dry down, so they may be more prone to settling into fine lines as they dry down, so they have to be smoothed back out as they develop a bit of tackiness. — Christine Jo...
