Blogger Interrogation 2.0: Kelly's Makeup Bag



The blogger: Kelly 


What are your 3 favorite blogs of the moment? 
Oy. This is so hard! I can only pick three? Well if you say so . . . I’ve been loving The Bristol Beauty Blog – this girl makes me want to move to the UK right now solely for their beauty products., In Her Makeup Bag is a good one for college girls like myself who want to find good options at the drugstore. Last but not least, Cute and Mundane because she has an amazing NARS collection (totally jealous!) and she has great photos! These girls are all so sweet and have great blogs! 

What colors do you tend to gravitate towards, in terms of makeup? 
Neutrals! I’m a huge fan of any and every brown shadow – they make my blue eyes pop! For lips, I really like pinks and nudes. The Viva Glam Gaga colors are right up my alley. 

Name one (or a few) products you like to use, despite knowing it’s probably not the most flattering on you. 
Bright blush (Dollymix and Frankly Scarlet: I’m looking at you!). I have red cheeks, so I have to be really careful with what blush colors I wear. Pinks and reds tend to make me look sunburned which is not a look I usually strive for! 

Name one limited edition item you wish would become permanent. 
I’m going to be groundbreaking here and say Stereo Rose MSF. Who would want that back? :D 

Name one makeup item that would make you burst into tears immediately if it was dropped on the floor and shattered into a million pieces. 
My MAC blush in Bite of an Apple! I just got this blush on the Specktra forums and it’s one of the few blushes I’ve found that suits my skin-tone. After I finished crying my eyes out I would resort to ebay to find a replacement! 

What is your favorite YouTube channel (beauty-related or not)? 
I love Amarixe! I don’t know why, but I feel like she could be my big sister. She’s hilarious! 

Name one of your favorite beauty products under $10 (ideally drugstore). 
I’m obsessed with my L’Oreal HIP Energized Eye Shadow Duo. Seriously, this duo has some of the most pigmented drugstore eye shadows I’ve ever tried! 

Name one of your favorite beauty products over $10 (ideally non-drugstore). 
I don’t know what I would do with out MAC’s Refined Golden Bronzer. It’s the perfect shade for my skintone. It’s not too orange, and it’s not too muddy. Like Baby Bear’s porridge, it’s juuuusssstt right! 

Please link us to your favorite post.
My Amy Winehouse look is hands down my favorite post. I had never done anything near that dramatic with makeup before – I was so nervous! Y’all should have seen me actually applying the makeup . . . I was a hot mess! 

Thank you to Kelly for letting us interrogate her! 


Blogger Interrogation will being going on a bit of a hiatus until further notice! :)

Blogger Interrogation 2.0: Pretty In The Desert



The blogger: Aseya 


Who/What blog(s)/ YouTube channel(s) inspired you to start blogging? 
My friend actually suggested I start my own blog. I am an ex-beauty therapist and no matter how hard I try, the industry will always have my heart. I started reading blogs to keep up with things and decided to go for it! One of the very first blogs I read was Nadine Jolie and it seemed so glamorous. I never really thought I’d actually get away with it! 

What are your 3 favorite blogs of the moment? 
Honestly WTF - I love reading that blog for fashion inspiration, their pictures are amazing! Plus, I’m really into making my own jewelry and they have the COOLEST DIYs. Lisa Eldridge -She’s just a legend and her videos are so easy to watch. No More Dirty Looks - They focus on “safe and sustainable beauty”, which I am really trying to get into at the moment. 

What colors do you tend to gravitate towards, in terms of makeup? 
It kind of changes from season to season, but in general, I’d have to say: nudes for my lips, peaches for my cheeks and taupes and browns for my eyes. 

Name one (or a few) products you like to use, despite knowing it’s probably not the most flattering on you.
Bright, neon nail polish. Especially Gamma by Illamsaqua. I just love it, but I look at pictures and think ‘woah!’ 

Name one limited edition item you wish would become permanent. 
MAC’s Wonder Woman MSF in Pink Power. I love this, I pretty much wear it whenever I wear makeup! 

Name one makeup item that would make you burst into tears immediately if it was dropped on the floor and shattered into a million pieces. 
My NARS Orgasm/Laguna duo. It was my first ‘luxury’ makeup product and it opened doors for me! I was never very adventurous with color on m face because I thought it wouldn’t show up on darker skin. But, Orgasm looked gorgeous on me and it just opened up so many possibilities! 

What is your favorite YouTube channel (beauty-related or not)? 
Lisa Elridge’s channel is my favorite. She’s so well spoken and grown up! I want to be here when I grow up J 

Name one of your favorite beauty products under $10 (ideally drugstore). 
Nivea Mattifying Day Care Cream. It’s lovely. It makes my skin feel so soft and it doesn’t make me break out or give me a shiny face. I even wear it at night. 

Name one of your favorite beauty products over $10 (ideally non-drugstore). 
NARS Multiple in South Beach. This has been one of my favorites forever. It makes my skin look so pretty and it is so easy to apply. I like to throw it in my bag when I know I’ll be out for a while. It’s such a quick pick me up for my face. 

Please link us to your favorite post. 
One of my favorite posts is my Sleek Makeup Pout Paints preview. I have been playing around with my camera settings and lighting at home, and I’m so pleased with how these pictures turned out. Photography is definitely something that I need to work on! Also, this post about my cat, Bowie, always makes me smile. I know, I’m a crazy cat lady! 


Thank you to Aseya for letting us interrogate her! 

I'm not taking any new volunteers for Blogger Interrogation at the moment, but I'll definitely let you all know when I am :)

Blogger Interrogation 2.0: Beauty Down Under



The blogger: Hannah


Who/What blog(s)/ YouTube channel(s) inspired you to start blogging? 
I only recently started becoming obsessed with makeup and when I discovered makeup tutorials on youtube my interest skyrocketed. From youtube I started reading blogs and before I knew it I had one of my own :) The blog that really inspired me to start blogging was Makeup and Macaroons, it’s author Lilit is Australian like me, which is what drew me to push that follow button for the first time :)

What are your 3 favorite blogs of the moment? 
Keeping Up with Me has been a fave of mine for a while now and its author Tara is really sweet. She’s also an Aussie and has convinced me to finally order the Beauty Blender. 

Another fave is Rach from So Hi whose post on being a kind blogger convinced me to join the Kind Bloggers Network. If you have a blog be sure to join :)

Last but certainly not least is Stefy from Britese. This girl is stunning and always has great photos!

What colors do you tend to gravitate towards, in terms of makeup? 
I used to be all about very colourful makeup and could often be seen sporting bright purple eyeshadow from lid to brow bone but now as I have gotten older (and a lot wiser) I gravitate more towards neutral colours.

Name one (or a few) products you like to use, despite knowing it’s probably not the most flattering on you. 
I would say probably bronzer. I am so pale I’m pretty much translucent...so I probably should lay off the Nars Laguna a bit more than I do. But hey who doesn’t want to look like a bronzed goddess?? (I’ve got a bit of Adriana Lima envy!) 

Name one limited edition item you wish would become permanent. 
I have a confession to make here. I don’t think I actually own any limited edition products (yet). I don’t tend to get sucked into different collections, I think it’s because I am not a huge MAC girl. But if I had to choose something it would be anything limited edition by Nars because to me they can do no wrong. 

Name one makeup item that would make you burst into tears immediately if it was dropped on the floor and shattered into a million pieces. 
For sure my Dior Amber Diamond. Not only because it set me back a small fortune but also because it is just so damn beautiful. Tiffany’s ravings about it actually convinced me to buy it in the end. 

What is your favorite YouTube channel (beauty-related or not)? 
Would have to be Pixiwoo wouldn’t it? I mean look at this come on? Incredible! A lesser-known guru I love is Nikki who’s an aspiring makeup artist. Her eye looks are so pretty and tutorials are really easy to follow. 

Name one of your favorite beauty products under $10 (ideally drugstore). 
Finding a beauty product for under $10 in Australia is quite a feat! But I would have to say it’s my Australis cream blusher in Flirtatious Pink. $9.95 for a cream blush with a similar texture to Nars and a beautiful colour can’t get much better than that! I review it here.

Name one of your favorite beauty products over $10 (ideally non-drugstore). 
I am a huge sucker for packaging and even more so when I love the product it contains. So I would have to say Urban Decay eye-shadow palettes. I currently own 3; The Vegan Palette, The Ammo Palette and of course the Naked Palette. They are great value for the price and because of the added extras I am never short of primer potion :) The Naked Palette is my fave of the 3.

Please link us to your favorite post. 
Apart from my post about my fur baby Handsome Rob it would probably be my post about my Holy Grail beauty items because it got a really good response from my readers :)


Thank you to Hannah for letting us interrogate her! 

I'm not taking any new volunteers for Blogger Interrogation at the moment, but I will definitely let you all know when I am :)

Blogger Interrogation 2.0: Lil Lady's Life


This is the first Blogger Interrogation 2.0 post, aka Blogger Interrogation but with (almost) all-new questions! Yay!


The blogger:  Julie

The blog: Lil Lady's Life

Who/What blog(s)/ YouTube channel(s) inspired you to start blogging?
I was pretty obsessed with the YouTube channel Fuzkittie and her blog! I admired her so much because she blogged pretty much every single day and had videos up so regularly. I would go back and re read all those posts often! She doesn't update her blog anymore only on her FB.

What are your 3 favorite blogs of the moment? 
I just recently have discovered the blog Veronica’s Blushing! It’s not 100% make up focused. My favorite blogs seem to be more life focused with women who post recipes, share gym schedules, but happen to love beauty and fashion too. Verionica’s fit’s the bill!

Two new recent obsession blogs are Fashion Toast and Into the Gloss. Fashion Toast is a girl  has RIDICULOUSLY amazing style, and a face that makes her look like she belongs in a Marc Jacobs ad in every post.

Into the Gloss is another recent new obsession. They don't post too often but each post makes me want to click click click! I especially love their Top shelf category and The Face category.

Sneak peak and insight into some behind the scenes beauty secrets of real life women

What colors do you tend to gravitate towards, in terms of makeup?
Neutrals, Neutrals, Neutrals ! I do have some wild colors in my collections but they get nearly as much love as my neutral make up. I hate looking like I have too much going on.

Name one (or a few) products you like to use, despite knowing it’s probably not the most flattering on you. 
For Skin Care I like to use Mario Badescu’s drying lotion at night, which has calamine in it, so I end up sleeping with a face full of pink dots! like I have the chicken pox again – uber attractive

Name one limited edition item you wish would become permanent.
Bobbi Brown Shimmer nudes Palette, I lost my chance to purchase this and it seems like something I would love to buy over and over again!

Name one makeup item that would make you burst into tears immediately if it was dropped on the floor and shattered into a million pieces.
My  MAC’s Candle light MSF!!!! I would desperately try to repress this immediately or crush it into a pigment! I would use everything in my book to try to save it! Would not give up!! If all else fails, I would *gulp* resort to ebay

What is your favorite YouTube channel (beauty-related or not)?
WOW, this is so hard! I am subscribed to SO many people! I actually have really been enjoying a semi new channel called Annie’s Beauty Life. She seems like a very real person, genuine, and for that she seems incredibly beautiful to me as a person. She has channel with mainly beauty and some diet tips, but she also has inspirational videos about keeping your life focused on the more important things in life, and not the little things. Her “About Me” video was incredibly interesting, as she has lived in many places in world, and is currently living in NYC *woot woot* Yay to my city girls

Name one of your favorite beauty products under $10.
I’m torn between two things, but I have to say Milani Luminoso blush. I have A LOT of blush, some of them admitingly were more money than they’re worth, but I have been showing the most love to Luminoso which is under 10 dollars! When I realized how good it was, I was ready to chuck half my blush collection out the window

Name one of your favorite beauty products over $10.
Current favorite beauty product of the moment over 10 dollars is Dior’s Rose Diamond. No one talks about this?! I have no idea why! I use it as a blush and highlight, and it gives the most refined glow. It also shimmers in the sun a mix of silver, lilac, and blue. I mean… how pretty does that sound???

Please link us to your favorite post.
My favorite post is something I wrote LONG ago, and I doubt most of my followers even knew I had written.  My one and only DIY post. I am linking this because I think it’s one of the my most clear posts that may help several people!


Thank you to Julie for letting us interrogate her! 



From here on out, I'll most likely only be posting BI posts every other week, so that means I'll only be taking a few volunteers at a time (I don't like to have BI posts lined up for more than a few weeks at a time; otherwise, it just gets too hectic). If you wouldn’t mind being interrogated, shoot me an email at willworkformakeup@hotmail.com.


Edit: I have enough volunteers for now. Thanks to everyone who showed an interest in being interrogated. I will respond to your emails later today :)

Blogger Interrogation: The Beauty Bite





The blogger: Laura

The blogThe Beauty Bite 

What is the first blog you remember following?
 The very first blog I ever remember following with an incredibly weird pop culture site called BestWorst which mainly consisted of surreal drawings featuring Britney Spears wearing hats. When it comes to beauty though the site that initially got me hooked was British Beauty Blogger. It completely blew my mind being able to see visuals of products that weren't available to buy for another 6 months - WHO KNEW!? 

What is the last blog you followed? 
Heather Does Make Up - beautiful girl, beautiful products, beautiful tutorials, beautiful blog! 

Without checking, how many lipsticks do you think you own? 
I think about 20? 

How many do you really own?
 Oh My. You know that number I just said above? Times it by like 2 and then add 7. 

You can only use 3 makeup products for the rest of your life. Which ones will they be? 
I'm a pretty natural girl when it comes to my daily look so I guess it'd have to be quite a boring selection of simple, subtle items such as tinted moisturiser, a volumizing mascara and a pearly white liquid highlighter. The base and illuminator would both be Becca and I guess for the eyes I'd have to clump for old faithful itself, YSL Faux Cils.

 You have to get rid of 3 of your makeup products right now. Which ones will they be?
 Easy! My UNE cream blush - not a big fan of the colour OR texture. 

Rimmel True Match Gel Foundation - In general there's absolutely nothing wrong with this product, but if I don't completely dig a foundation then I really hate having to work my way through the pot. 

Max Factor Lash Extension Effect Mascara - I find this product so boring to use. It gives pretty decent wear but it just doesn't pack any kind of punch. 

What is your best makeup tip? 
Mix together a small amount of liquid illuminator and foundation on the back of your hand then apply to the cheeks, forehead and chin using a large bronzing brush. It gives the most delicious dewy effect, perfect for faking that I've-Just-Had-10-Hours-Sleep-And-Only-Eat-Healthy-Food glow. 

What is your makeup pet peeve? 
Sales Assistants who don't recommend the right foundation for the client's skin. I get so frustrated when I see people with sensitive, oily or dry complexions being sold bases that contain all the right ingredients to REALLY aggravate the problem. Not only is it unfair on the consumer but if they have a bad reaction to the product they'll almost never go back to that brand, even if they do sell the perfect base for their needs! 

What is the worst makeup crime you’ve ever committed? 
When I was 15 years old I became a little bit obsessed with this dramatic red L'Oreal lipstick. I hadn't quiet grasped the 'less is more' mantra and ended up teaming it repeatedly with heavy lined eyes, fakes lashes, heaps of blusher and a £3 foundation that was literally 2 shades too dark for me. No wonder I never had a boyfriend. 

What is one thing your readers don’t know about you? 
I used to be friends with Harry Potter's hand double - I only hang with the A-list, people! 

Please link us to your favorite post. 
I think it would have to be the Nars Douceur Blush post - an easily forgotten shade but so, so pretty to wear! 

  Thank you to Laura for letting us interrogate her!


For those who are still interested in taking part in the series, there will be all new questions starting with the next Blogger Interrogation post, and I'll also be taking new volunteers when the next post goes up - probably either next week or the week after. As always, I'll keep you updated as to what to do at the end of that post :)

Blogger Interrogation: Bug's Beauty Blog


The blogger: Bug


What is the first blog you remember following? 
My memory isn’t the best but some of the first blogs I remember following are Temptalia, Xina Rox, Lipstick Rules and Pretty in the Desert and they’re still some of my favourite blogs to read! 

What is the last blog you followed? 
Blogger has been going crazy on me so I’ve had to re-follow a lot of blogs in the last week but I think Fables in Fashion was the latest. I appreciate blogs with clean layouts and high quality photos and Celina’s blog has that in abundance plus it helps that she’s super talented and a fellow Aussie ;) 

Without checking, how many lipsticks do you think you own? 
I would say 30 maybe? 

How many do you really own? 
44 which worries me as an average makeup consumer but as a beauty blogger I say there’s always room for more! 

You can only use 3 makeup products for the rest of your life. Which ones will they be? 
1. Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation because it works well as both a foundation and a concealer and it makes your skin look fantastic! 

2. NARS Taj Mahal blush because it’s the most stunning colour which looks fabulous with any look. 

3. And lastly, some type of liquid liner because I’m a liquid liner addict! Shiseido’s Automatic Fine Eyeliner is my Holy Grail liquid liner when I can afford to splurge and NYX’s Studio Liquid Liner in Extreme Black has become my new budget friendly favourite. 

You have to get rid of 3 of your makeup products right now. Which ones will they be? 
I have a green (yes green!) lip gloss from L’Oreal which I was sent as a free gift with purchase and which smells horrible and looks even worse so that would be first to go! 

Next would be my NARS Sparkling Loose Powder in Gold Rush which I purchased after watching a YouTube video by the Sublime Agent and which I have never actually used. It’s beautiful but I have better highlighters for my cheeks and I never powder my *ahem* décolletage so this product has been sitting in a drawer unloved. 

My last one would be my Guerlain Terracotta Loose Powder Kohl liner which I purchased on a whim because the bottle was so pretty but I have never figured out how to use it without getting a whole heap of kohl in my eye! 

What is your best makeup tip? 
This is one of those clichéd lines but ‘Less is more’.  

I always used to hear this line and think ‘uhmm no, more is more!’ but with age I’ve realized that good products are ones which perform well without you having to pack on a whole bunch of it! 

I’ve also realized that packing on the makeup usually does nothing but emphasise whatever it is you’re desperately trying to conceal. 

What is your makeup pet peeve? 
Ok, I have to confess that I have a lot of makeup pet peeves, so much so that I dedicated a whole post to it but my most hated one is unblended foundation. 

The worst case of this that I’ve ever seen was when I used to work in retail and a girl came in to the store who had used a foundation 2 shades too dark that was super orange and applied it like a mask with it covering her lashes AND lips. I’m still scarred K

What is the worst makeup crime you’ve ever committed?
 Lol, in the whole of my makeup wearing years I’m sure I’ve committed lots of makeup crimes including lipstick on teeth and mascara on my eyelids but my longest makeup crime was back when I first started wearing makeup and became guilty of the unblended foundation. 

This continued for a while until a kind friend took me aside one day and tough-loved me into realizing that the foundation I thought looked so flawless and ‘like I’m wearing no foundation at all’ was actually flawed to a major degree! That was right around the time I discovered the importance of good lighting when applying foundation. 

What is one thing your readers don’t know about you?
 I guess I don’t really share a lot of things about me on my blog so there’s a lot my readers probably don’t know about me but one thing is that Bug is my actual nickname.  My friends have been calling me Bug for years and I use it as my blog name because it allows me to maintain a certain degree of anonymity without feeling like I’m using a fake identity. 

Please link us to your favorite post. 
My blog is a mish mash of many things but EOTD’s are definitely my favourite posts to do and two of my favourite ones are: 
1. my Nicki Minaj inspired Smokey Teal EOTD because it won me second prize in my first makeup competition and
 2. my Sunset inspired look because it was the first time I’d really properly started experimenting with bright colours and I haven’t looked back since.  

 Thank you to Bug for letting us interrogate her!


Thank you so much for the overwhelmingly positive response on my Blogger Interrogation series! It seems there are quite a few people interested in being interrogated and already, I have bloggers lined up again for the next few weeks so unfortunately, I won't be taking any more volunteers at this time. I'll be sure to let you guys know when I am! Thanks so much for understanding :)

Blogger Interrogation: Fierce Nerditude


The blogger: Vijaya


What is the first blog you remember following?
 The first blog I ever read was Temptalia, but back then I didn’t really “follow” blogs: I bookmarked them and checked back once or twice a day. In fact, I didn’t start “following” blogs ‘til late last year. I think the first blog I officially “followed” was Phyrra’s

What is the last blog you followed? 
I’m actually not sure, but I think it was Swatch Storm

Without checking, how many lipsticks do you think you own? 
Goodness, I have no clue. 40? 50? That’s if you don’t count liquid lipstick, pencil-style lipstick products, etc. 

How many do you really own? 
Without counting anything other than items “traditionally” considered to be lipstick, 96 (excluding items that may or may not have fallen to the bottom of my dresser drawer). If we count less traditional items like liquid lipstick, potted lipstick and lipstick pencils? Let’s not go there. 

You can only use 3 makeup products for the rest of your life. Which ones will they be? 
MAC Prep + Prime Face Protect, because it’s a face primer with SPF that doesn’t leave me with a weird white cast. Also, MAC Pro Longwear Foundation in NC50, because I need my foundation to be long-wearing and transfer-resistant. Lastly, Bare Escentuals Buxom Lip Polish in Dolly: it’s a good touch-of-color gloss that I can wear daily. Actually, on school days I usually have to get up so early that these three items are all I use! 

You have to get rid of 3 of your makeup products right now. Which ones will they be? 
I have these two Jordana “Quickliner” lip pencils in Currantly and Wild Orchid. They’re hard and not very pigmented, and the only reason I haven’t binned them already is because I’m determined to use them up. Also, there’s my Nyx Jumbo lip pencil in Pink Nude because it’s too light on me and doesn’t offer any staying power. If I can cheat and give you one more product that’s not really makeup, I also really should consider tossing my Clinique clarifying lotion. It’s just not as good for my skin as other toners I’ve tried! 

What is your best makeup tip?
 Be yourself and the rest will come. It doesn’t necessarily sound like a makeup tip per se, but trust me, it always seems so obvious to me when a girl (or guy!) is wearing their makeup in a way they don’t like to. People always look their best in the stuff they like to wear, whether that’s a polished, natural face or blue lips, green mascara and glitter all over. Don’t use makeup to hide you: use it to be you! Also, if you’re like me and you enjoy blue, green and black (or other unusual /otherwise fussy) lip products, try blotting it and then applying again on top. That makes everything look a lot smoother with minimal effort. 

What is your makeup pet peeve? 
When you buy a ‘non-sticky’ gloss and it feels like it’s just oil on your lips. Ew! 

What is the worst makeup crime you’ve ever committed? 
Not wearing eye primer! I started wearing makeup when I was 12, but until I was 15 or 16 I didn’t know about eye makeup primer. I would put my sparkly black eyeshadow on at the beginning of the day and by the end… Let’s just say that Too Faced Shadow Insurance has changed my life for the better! 

What is one thing your readers don’t know about you? 
Hmmm… Tough question! One of the things I’m really open about on my blog is that I’m a total gamer geek, but I guess they might not know I’m also a geek for sci-fi/fantasy literature, anime and manga, and—of all things—theater (especially musicals). Also, I know Latin. I took it for 3 years in high school, and can speak it conversationally because of a test I had to take. 

Please link us to your favorite post. 
I do a series of makeup posts inspired by the Final Fantasy series of games, and my favorite post might be the one inspired by Fran of Final Fantasy XII! If I can cheat just one more time (I’m so bad!) I also really like the one I did on Yuna from Final Fantasy X

Blogger Interrogation: emmabovarybeauty



The blogger:  Emma

The blog:  emmabovarybeauty

What is the first blog you remember following?
I began close to home when I began following Ponikuta who lives in Melbourne. It’s still the first blog I click on each morning, Valerie is an amazing blogger!

What is the last blog you followed?
I recently stumbled across ‘Turn on the Redlight’ which is a UK based blog with a great mix of hauls, reviews and swatches. I like the blogs I read to have a good mix of all of these, that way there is always something fresh to see!

Without checking, how many lipsticks do you think you own?
I would say 30...and I’m nervous to count them, as I’ve gone a bit lipstick-mad lately..

How many do you really own?
I counted 49 in my lipstick drawer, but didn’t venture into my handbag. Did not realise I had that many!

You can only use 3 makeup products for the rest of your life. Which ones will they be?
Life would be so boring without a million choices every morning! But if I had to choose, my Bourjois Healthymix foundation is a life saver. It’s so easy to apply and is great at evening out my skin without drying it out. Also smells amazing, which is a plus in my books! The second would have to be my Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick in Coral Crush- this never photographs as well as it looks in reality, because this baby is a stunner! As a stain or a full bright lip, this is the one I wear and love most. Third choice is a tough one…though MAC’s Retrospeck eyeshadow was tempting, I’d go with a blush. NYX Peach would probably be the one, because it is so hard to overdo and makes it a handbag essential. It’s long lasting and natural looking, and rounds out the 3 products that are my essentials!

You have to get rid of 3 of your makeup products right now. Which ones will they be?
I have a sample of Smashbox Photo Op Under- Eye Brightener, and I’d toss that because I’m just not loving it. I’d also toss my Revlon matte lippy in Nude Attitude, I’m far too pale for it and it makes me look like an ugly corpse- not what I am for with lippies! The last item I would throw is my Burts Bees lip balm. It’s just too hard for me to work with, so I never reach for it.

What is your best makeup tip?
It’s a simple one- wear what makes you smile! (And always wear blush)

What is your makeup pet peeve?
I think it would be mascara dotted above the eye. My lashes are long enough that if I open my eyes wide straight after applying mascara I get a line of them on my brow bone, it is extremely annoying. Don’t like the look on others either, obviously! Other than that I’d say the usuals- dark lip liner, too-dark foundatuon, and thin brows!

What is the worst makeup crime you’ve ever committed?
Overbronzing to the max- I was once a fair-bear in denial and thought that loading up with bronzer all over (!) would fix the ‘problem’. Nowadays I embrace my skin tone, and have learnt to use bronzer sensibly, if ever at all.

What is one thing your readers don’t know about you?
I’m a literature nerd! My favourite books come out of the 1800’s, and my all-time love is Gustave Flaubert’s ‘Madame Bovary’. It’s my blogs namesake, and I adore it to bits.

Please link us to your favorite post.

Blogger Interrogation: Steal My Heart Lovee



The blogger: Steal My Heart Lovee 


What is the first blog you remember following?
The first blog I remember following was Temptalia. This was in 2008 when I first discovered beauty blogs.

What is the last blog you followed?
This will change by the time I’m published, but the last blog I followed was Makeup By Thess.

Without checking, how many lipsticks do you think you own?
I think I own about 20 lipsticks.

How many do you really own?
I really own 36 lipsticks. lol

You can only use 3 makeup products for the rest of your life. Which ones will they be?
These questions are always a challenge for me. I love a flawless face so it would be...
1. Foundation
2. Concealer
3. Mascara

You have to get rid of 3 of your makeup products right now. Which ones will they be?
1. Lip gloss
2. Eye shadow pigments
3. Cream eye shadows

What is your best makeup tip?
This makeup tip isn’t mine, but I completely agree with it.“Eyeshadow is a powerful thing; done right, it can instantly transform you.” - The Beauty of Color by Iman

What is your makeup pet peeve?
I have two. #1 Raccoon eyes instead of a fierce smokey eye.
#2 Wearing foundation that is either too light or too dark for your actual skin tone.

What is the worst makeup crime you’ve ever committed?
When I was learning how to fill in my eyebrows, I started using a black eyebrow pencil. Lucky, I don’t have any of those photos my blog!I realized my black eyebrows was making my face look too harsh. So, I decided to use Maybelline Define-a-Brow Pencil in Dark Brown (which is a perfect shade for my brows) or to combine both NYX Eye/Eyebrow Pencil in Black with NYX Eye/Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown to soften the brow just enough.I definitely learned a lesson from my makeup crime. 

What is one thing your readers don’t know about you?
One thing my readers don’t know about me is that I can sing. When I was a child I always sang in my church’s choir; but now I’m too shy to sing in front of people I don’t know. Although, that might change shortly. ;)

I’m a blush junkie. So my favourite posts would have to be any review about NARS blushes

Thanks for giving me this opportunity, Tiffany. :)


Thank you to StealMyHeartLovee for letting us interrogate her!

Thank you so much for the overwhelmingly positive response on my Blogger Interrogation series! It seems there are quite a few people interested in being interrogated and already, I have bloggers lined up again for the next several weeks so unfortunately, I won't be taking any more volunteers at this time. I'll be sure to let you guys know when I am! Thanks so much for understanding :)

Blogger Interrogation: Leah's Land



The blogger: Leah

The blog: Leahs Land <3

What is the first blog you remember following?
I believe I started getting into blogging with Youtube, (who didn’t? :D) but the first real blog I followed was yours! Then my next followed blog was definitely Vivianna!

What is the last blog you followed?
 The last blog I believe to have followed was Adrienne Adores blog.

Without checking, how many lipsticks do you think you own?
 Probably 10, I’m not nearly as much as a lipstick person than lip balms/glosses.

How many do you really own?
8! This surely means I need to buy some more right, right? 

You can only use 3 makeup products for the rest of your life. Which ones will they be?
I must have Mascara, probably Maybelline Colossal, moisturizer, L’Oreal Triple Action Day of course, and lip balm, MAC TLC in Petting Pink.

You have to get rid of 3 of your makeup products right now. Which ones will they be?
  Oh this is hard… First would have to be a JQC eyeshadow quad, way to chalky for me. Also an old Lip Smackers that I can’t seem to give up because it smells amazing but the formula is disgusting, and the MODE translucent powder, it’s a mess!

What is your best makeup tip?
Keep it natural. Don’t cake your face to hide one small mark, don’t go overboard on the blush and keep the eyebrows natural, if you know what I mean. I prefer the all-natural look and not the over-done look.

What is your makeup pet peeve?
Caked-on foundation with a thick line, mascara that has smudged onto your eyeshadow (so annoying!) and those gooey black balls in the inner-corner of your eye after you have had eyeliner on.

What is the worst makeup crime you’ve ever committed?
I am so ashamed to say this, but concealer lips :/ I didn’t own a nude lipstick, and I wanted to lighten up my lips a bit. I did top it off with a light pink lipgloss so it wasn’t a complete concealer-y mess!

What is one thing your readers don’t know about you?
I am the youngest of 4 children!

Please link us to your favorite post.
 My favorite post I wrote was my first real ever post to do with makeup. It was a post all about dry lips, and I thought it was pretty good back then! The most recent post of mine is my 100 follower giveaway, enter if you like!
