  1. wow this is amazing! thanks for posting!

  2. thanks for all of your info, they’re really helpful~!

    if it’s not too much trouble, can you post a skincare regime? thanks again!

  3. hi I already posted my skincare regime… pls check my older entries

  4. ur crazy. as if ur posting a walkthru for some games hehe

  5. Great list! I just got MAC’s Lovechild, which is a beautiful color that is almost the exact shade of my natural lips (maybe slightly deeper). However, I had been hoping for something a bit darker/more sparkly. I had originally thought about purchasing Pop Mode but was worried that this would be TOO dark–do you know of any drugstore equivalents of this shade? Thank you!!!

  6. I actually think Mac High Tea is more similar to Rimmel’s Birthday Suit than Airy Fairy, but slightly peachier.

  7. Really great blog you’ve set up :D

    Uhm, feel a bit stupid about asking this, but my English is not that good. When yopu say drugstore, do you mean, like, pharmacy? Cos I’ve never realized there’s makeup in pharmacies…

  8. ooooh..
    Yah, I’m from Denmark. Small place, and you can’t even get decent body lotions in drugstores…
    *sigh*
    Well, thanx :D

  9. i just bought a NARS lipgloss in Orgasm today
    i hafto say….its QUITE similar to my other lipgloss — Rimmel’s Vinyl Stars …i forget which color but the ref # is 540
    the only difference (u can barely tell) is that

    NARS — peachier color, stickier, a bit more natural, more $$$
    Rimmel — more of a pinkish color, not as sticky, sparklier, a LOT cheaper

    don’t get me wrong..im happy with my purchase… :)

  10. Hey! Where can you get Milani eyeshadows?

  11. Milani is available at most drugstores like Walgreens and Jewel Osco.

  12. Where can I get the FLIRT! Brush?

  13. You can find Flirt! at Kohl’s or you can check out their website for more information:

  14. i gotta say i lovee your blog~
    but i have a slight question, do you think NYX eyeshadows is comparable to MAC eyeshawdows?
    i hope if you have time, it’ll be great to do an review on NYX cosmetics.
    =D

  15. hmm not sure if my comment got published or not but i absolutely adore your blog here and was wanting to ask you, between the NYX pigments, were they rich and just close to quality just like the MAC’s?
    i’ve been trying to find reviews for the NYX cosmetics since their prices are affordable. Any help here for their lines of cosmetics?
    =)

  16. I adore this and your whole blog! I had to link immediately! Thank for posting. :)

  18. I’m using bare escentuals right now for my acne-prone skin but I would like to try a liquid foundation next. What would you reccomend that isn’t too expensive? Also, where can I find the Milani Minerals in your other post?
