Stila’s Convertible Eye colors are one of Stila’s bestseller items. Stila was the brainchild of a makeup artist so I can understand the need for multi-tasking products when one is in a hurry or needs to lug their makeup bags to gigs. What the Stila Convertible Eye Color is, is a liner and shadow in one handy slim pen.

When I encountered the Estee Lauder Chocolate Decadence collection for Fall 2008, I was stunned at the uncanny resemblence to Guerlain Ombre Eclat eyeshadow quads. So, I went home and rooted around my collection and realised that I hadn’t reviewed them, so here it is.
If you have seen the new Estee Lauder eyeshadow quads, don’t you think the similarity is uncanny? The same golden square shaped quad with slightly domed shaped cover. The same rectangular pans inside and 2 sponge ended applicators.

Or how to empty your wallet when faced with a site outage
First of all, my apologies to everyone who tried to access my site and found it no longer existed. There was a problem with the server which my host worked hard to rectify and I think its all alright now. Some comments earlier may have disappeared (and a post or two did too) so I duly apologise. That was due to a server migration and I can’t retrieve them. So, thank you for your patience and to those who dropped me emails to find out what was happening, thank you too for your concern!

They are Givenchy Prisme Again! blush/highlighter in Crazy Pink (US$25) and Clarins blush in Rose Petal (US$15) both picked up at 50% off from StrawberryNET.com where the offers are on-going for a limited time. Both are brands I’ve never tried nor ever thought of trying so I’ll be quite interested to see how they fare. Continue Reading ►
