    Those Estee Lauder topaz liners look FUN. I dunno if I could pull that look off though. I'm just beginning to accept that I'm pretty much always going to look like a dork, no matter what I try.

    And I've tried an Origins zero oil mattifying liquid, and at first it worked. Then it started to create this weird residue on my face every time I put it on. I'm not sure what happened. Lately my foundation has done a good job of keeping the oil under control, but it could just be because it's colder outside.

    I'm very oily and it didn't do anything for me. I still have a nearly full bottle. If you PM me your address, I will send it to you.

    Tour De Fabulous
    Nice collection of lipglasses
    Garreth Pugh
    Estee Lauder's Spring 2012 Topaz Collection
    The Kajal liners look incredible. The reviews of the products on different sites has been very good.

    Anyone else have some spring collections that want to discuss?
    I got the Daphne Guinness lipglass in Narcissus & I'm strongly considering the ombre blush in vintage grape too

    Sephora kindly informs that the Urban Decay Naked2 pallette is out. Tempting, very tempting. But I am sure I absolutely don't need it.

    ugh... that's it... I'm buying some sort of warm teal eye shadow! What color of eye liner would work with it? I'm NC42 with dark brown eyes.

    I'd say either black or silver, but I'm traditional like that. Dark gold might be nice too.

    I already have Sin, Baked, Twice Baked, Half Baked, YDK, and Sellout--so I'm not really that tempted. I can create my own look with what I have! Plus, both palettes are on the warm side, and I'm very much on the cool side. (Blonde, pale, hazel eyes, pinky undertone to my skin.)

    I am very much on the warm side but like you, I have plenty of colors that would do the job including some Urban Decay, MAC, Lorac, Ulta and NYX shadows that are various shades of nudes and neutrals.

    My absolute favorite go-to look is the Lorac Serenity+MAC Copperplate with some darker NYX brown from this palette in the crease and Origins Asteroid as the eyeliner. Wore this to meet PRLady.

    For evening, I use black shadow as a liner at the lashline and waterline. Done!

    Is that NYX Champagne and Caviar? That's my substitute for Naked (and it's only $8-10!)

    Yes, indeedy! It's excellent in quality and price.

    Thanks! Silver will probably look garish on me so I'll play it safe with black. I want that NYX palette!

    I like them both, but I'm talking about the non-shiny tube. The shiny gold tube is Voluminous Million Lashes, which is pretty good, but I find that it's better at defining lashes than volumizing.

    Aw, thanks.

    Sorry for really delayed answer....it was what was left of my bottle of Estee Lauder Sensuous, which comes in a thin bottle easy to pack. Just used the last of it in Arizona. It's in "our" family of vanillac-floral-Orientals and it's not very expensive, especially if you wait for the freebee giveaways to buy it.

    It smells lovely on you. I've tried it before but it doesn't like me.

    Try as I may to cheat on Lolita Lempicka, I always come running back. At least I was able to snag a large bottle at around $25 at TJ Maxx.

    IceAlisa, I'm on the fence with this palette. It seems to be more taupes and browns than the first palette and like Veronika. I have half the shades already with my other palettes.

    I'm thinking of buying a wet to dry tourmaline flat iron. There are some good reviews on Amazon, but I wondered if anyone here had tried one, or knows someone who has. Do they really work, and will it completely fry my hair? I assume you should used some sort of product with them too, right?

    This girl had the yummiest smelling perfume today, and it was so light. She said it was something called Tokyo Milk...anyone heard of it?

    Oh they have it available at Ampersand. Iiiii'm gonna have to check that out...it wasn't too sweet, or too earthy, and it wasn't at all overpowering.

    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!
