Holding a revamped Clinique All About Shadow Quad brings back so much memory! It must have been about 10 years ago when I got my first one of these (a purple one called Plum Seduction).

I think it’s only fitting to round off this year’s coral obsession with a Dior Rouge Dior (which I have also been obsessed with), so I picked up Mazette when there was an F&F sale a while back (sales are so dangerous. You get the impression that you’re getting stuff for free, but you really are not). The combination of an adorable color and a formula I can’t speak more highly of is simply perfection!

When I got Rouge Bunny Rouge Orpheline several months ago, I knew it wouldn’t be my last Rouge Bunny Rouge Original Skin Blush. In fact, I already knew I’d be adding the raspberry Florita to my collection when the weather gets cooler. Well, the cooler weather is here and so is Florita! [Read more...]
