Please pardon the gaps...

The site is in mid-migration now (manual migration of over 7,000 entries, so there's a lot to be done.) The entry stubs are created for older content, but for the most part, the actual content isn't there quite yet. I am working on it. Unfortunately I have no ETA. But feel free to link to any page! When the content does get populated, the URL will stay the same.

Freedom is a something of a diva. It won't really show up unless it's got proper backup (a dark base like Benefit's Strut, or MAC's Blackground, or something similar.) Even then, though, it's a very subtle color. Which either means it's a good ensemble player or that it doesn't have the weight to carry a look itself. Can't decide which… This look is dark enough, with Strut as the base, that a liner looks like overkill on me. (At least when I'm just going to be at home all day. Liner might work well for a night-time application, or when you want something bolder.) White Satin on the brow lightens my eyes, while Bluebell is applied all over for the blue glitter. It doesn't lay down much color on its own as I've applied it here. The waterproof liner pencil on the lower rim of the eye does the same thing as the White Satin on the browbone: it lightens the eye, opens it up a little more.

I love Posh blush. It's a blue-mauve color that none of BE's other blushes seem to quite match. Hopefully they'll release this as a standalone blush at some point in the future.

I found the CG LipSlicks by sheer happenstance. Flirtatious is an iridescent midlevel pink, and it looks good by itself or layered under sheer or nude lip glosses with some sparkle.
