    I love your make up!Very matching with your eye colour. One thing though Phyllis, I noticed you do not wear eyeliner on the lower lashes? Is there a particular reason?

    • Reply Phyllis February 1, 2010 at 12:17 pm


      I don’t know where you got the idea that I don’t wear eyeliner on my lower lashes because I do. I’m actually wearing some in this FOTD too and it’s just smudged out. Are you referring to a specific FOTD?

    Ooooh. Very pretty. How do you like that Rimmel lipstick?

    • Reply Phyllis February 1, 2010 at 12:15 pm


      Yes I do like the Rimmel lipstick. It’s pigmented, not too drying and CHEAP!

  • Reply Phyllis February 1, 2010 at 12:15 am


    Regular lipsticks aren’t meant to last all day and the Rimmel is no different.

      I’m not wearing color contacts in these pictures. My eyes just look a lot lighter under certain angles with the flash on.

      Not in this FOTD.

  • Reply Natasha April 8, 2012 at 2:24 pm

    What Stila palette did you use?

    • Reply Phyllis April 8, 2012 at 3:55 pm

      I used the Look #3 palette.

      • Reply Natasha April 9, 2012 at 6:38 pm

        Thanks for the reply. But is that what the Stila palette is called? Or does it have another name? Like Stila Light Up The World?

        • Reply Phyllis April 9, 2012 at 6:56 pm

          No it doesn’t. The palette is one of the oldest ones and the name is just Look #3.
