  • That modern love palette is tempting! I've been eyeing the eyeshadow duo with habanera for quite some time (but the accompanying silver was the deal-breaker), but this seems like a better option. How would you score it, out of 10?

  • I'm with you on Habanera – didn't like that silvery green. I'm rating this 8.5 out of 10. Not too crazy about Jezebel, seems like it might be slightly too reddish. But if I mix it with the black or even the paler shades, chances are it won't look as reddish.

  • I couldn't decide between the 2 Dior nail shades, but I'm so glad I went with the Mystic Violine. Thanks for showing the bottles and contrast!
