    Lime Crime Lipstick

    I don't have Pumpkin to compare, but the closest match I can think of is Notoriously Morbid Doppelganger. It might be a touch browner? It was originally released as Pumpkin King with their subscription service but has been made permanent under the name Doppelganger, hence the different name in...

    Little birthday haul :)

    It's my birthday today! I've been doing a bit of online shopping to treat myself, and was given some make up spending money for the Quite Cute launch here in NZ today by my BF. Nothing grabbed me unfortunately, but I did end up picking up Chanel Rouge Allure Lacque in Dragon at the Chanel...

    My friend Tracey is looking for the perfect blood red lipstick to recreate the ever popular True Blood lips :) Can anyone make any suggestions?

    Does anyone else work in Customer Services?

    Because while I love my job, the company I work for and the people I work with, frankly, sometimes it really sucks! Had a very unreasonable and abusive call today, first one that has left me feeling shaky afterwards in a long time :(

    MAC Glitter vials?

    Does anyone know what collection the random glitter vials you sometimes see are from? I've seen Hottest Pink & Absolute Gold on sales threads and in collections - they don't appear to have been available full size, I saw 'Glitter Treats' mentioned in a Make Up Alley review but I'd love to know...

    Help me identify these MAC lipglasses! :)

    Received these in a bulk lot today, and only one has a name - they're really not my colours (I'm NC15 and I only purchased the lot for the YSL mascara and Chanel eyeshadows, heehee) but I'd really like to know their names before I pass them onto someone else. Hopefully someone can help? :)...

    Help! My sister is driving me nuts!

    My younger sister, Casey, is 18. She was in a relationship with Cameron (20) for about a year and half when he broke it off as he no longer wanted to be in a relationship. Casey was devastated, though said she suspected it was coming. She and I haven't been close for many years now - since she...

    Sorry if this is in the wrong category! I regularly press pigments, both for myself, as gifts and to sell. The problem I'm having is with the MAC pigment Vanilla. The first time I did it and got this discolouration around the edges, I figured I had done something wrong and that it was a once...

    How did you tell your parents/in laws?

    I'm NOT expecting, but my boyfriend's dad always seems so paranoid at the thought of me getting pregnant and tying Mike down. I naturally gain weight in my belly and boobs so anytime I put on a kilo and Wal sees me, I see HIM pulling Mike aside and asking him if I'm pregnant?! Christ! Mike and I...

    False eyelashes & bright lips CAN cure fear of my stalker

    Long story and no non melodramatic way of explaining (the story is & of itself long, waffle-y and full of my own naivety) but anyway I have been stalked by a neighbour for the earlier part of the week and have been terrified of leaving the house (or when I do, returning). This should also...
