Answer Me These Questions Three! – A Suitably Geeky Makeup Poll #3

Greetings from behind a mythril clipboard, fellow rogues!

Well hello there! :-D If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen my tweet sized rant on how difficult it is sometimes to get out that awesome (pic heavy) post you’re working on, especially given the current technical issues at Rogue HQ! While we wait, I thought we might sit down around the campfire and have another chat, because I love hearing from you all :-). To keep you on the edge of your logs/rock outcroppings, here’s a tantalizing peek at the treasure to come…

 

Sneak peek!

 

On with the questionnaire!! :-D

Questing is a serious business, and as every good adventurer knows, it’s hard to get by without a bit of help and knowledge from your fellow treasure seekers. Which is the best brand of hinge grease? How do you defeat an enchanted automaton before the shine even leaves your lipgloss? Just how much beer *can* a dwarf drink in one sitting?

In the spirit of such inquiry, I have devised the Rogue Approved Questionnaire for the Extraction of Secrets. Also known as ‘Answer Me These Questions Three’. The questions are simple, and you are free to answer as fully, as tersely, as logically or as fantastically as you like. Please only use blue or black ink, and consult the orc-xaminer if you require an additional answer booklet.

You can copy and paste the questions into the comment box, or just list your answers if you prefer :-)

 

The Questions

 

  • Have you ever tried lavender or purple blush? Would you ever try it? If you have, what did you match it with? If you haven’t, do you have your eye on one? Share! :-D

  • When you apply your foundation (or powder, or BB cream, or moisturiser, if you don’t wear any foundation type stuff), do you always apply it in the same pattern across your face/neck, or do you mix it up?

  • You’re lost deep in the Underdark, surrounded by drow and other assorted chthonic horrors, and you have time to pop on one lip product before an epic battle commences. What’s your battle lip, fellow adventurers?

 

Makeup Poll

I asked these guys what their favourite sheer inoffensive pink lipstick was, and they argued for HOURS. Jeez…

 

 

I’m looking forward to reading your answers! :-)

 

Until next time, fellow adventurers, don’t forget to check for traps!

Greetings from the feasting table in the tavern, fellow rogues!

How’s your weekend going? Jut to add to the amusement of giant-spiders-in-the-cables, today our lodgings have been suffering from intermittent power cuts (presumably owing to the goblins in the elevator shaft). Hopefully you’re all faring much better! ^_^ Still, there’s always time for epic weekend beauty reading, and, as such , I present a little hoard of awesome links for your reading pleasure!

So…

What does a group of adventurers do after a long fortnight of successful questing? Why, they gather in the tavern to feast and tell tales of their adventures of course! Grab a tankard of mead, friends, and settle in!

 

Japanese curry...

Mmmmm. Japnese curry with somen and home made tsukemono (pickles)! Everyone else eats from their lap while on the computer…right? :-P The takuan pickles aren’t the usual bright yellow because we didn’t have any turmeric or extra B. subtilis lying around… ;-)

What’s in The Rogue’s August Wishlist Chest? Lipsticks, Blushes and Eyeliners!

Greetings from my imaginary world of awesome, fellow rogues!

I’ve been seeing so many cool wishlists around recently that I thought I’d gather up a few of my own ‘I wish’ items, and post them here for your amusement/between dungeon coffee break reading! We’re still knee deep in the giant, cable eating spiders at the moment, so I apologise for the relatively short post! I may be stealthily operating from my work computer to post this! ;-) Since there’s not as much detail as usual, I’ve included quite a few links to other related posts, both my own and others’, in case you’re hungry for more beauty reading!

Without further ado, these are the shinies – you may notice an unsurprising general colour trend… ;-)

 

August Wishlist

WISHLIIIIIST

 

From top to bottom, left to right:

Makeup Geek eyeliners: The one I have here in the picture is the bloody red ‘Poison’, but I wouldn’t mind collectiong all their colours! I’ve never tried them, but they just look stunning, and the names are very rogue/adventure appropriate, in general. There’s even a gold one called ‘Treasure’ – I mean, come on! Also, I would love to own a bloody, burgundy eyeliner, since it’s not a shade you see very often!

Makeup Geek blushes: These have been getting quite a bit of blog attention/love recently, for good reason, it seems! Although quite a few shades have caught my eye, the one area of my (admittedly miniscule) blush collection that is severley underrepresented is the berry/purple/lavender end! As such, the shades I have here are Rendezvous and Secret Admirer, a berry and lavender respectively.

Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Melted Fig: Although there are many shades in this line that look lovely, Melted Fig was the first one to really catch my eye and make me go ‘Ooh’. This is strange, since you’d think the purple would be top of my list, but I am having a huge ‘muted pinks‘ thing going on right now (despite the fact that Middle Earth is currently leaving Autumn/Winter).

YSL Le Teint Encre de Peau Foundation: Well, what can I say. YSL currently makes my 3 HG foundation products, and the whole ‘Encre de Peau’ think just sounds awesome, and catpures the idea of a thin substance that still has strong tinting power. Coincidentally, Lisa Eldridge’s newest video has a positive sort of mini-review of it, which never hurts a thing in my estimation!

OCC Lip Tar in Technopagan: Seriously. I just. Whatever. This was made for me. Augh! Want. Incoherence? Yes! :-D

Hourglass Mechanical Pencil Liner: OK, despite the zany cost/use ratio that these have (by the company’s own admission, surreally enough), I just really want to try one. I don’t wear black liner all that often, and I have kind of a thing for mechanical pencils, having used one more or less since I started school! There I was, as a little 5 year old rogue, with my pencil case full of lockpicks, hinge grease, and mechanical pencils… *wipes away nostalgic tear*.

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in 03 Violet Incognito: So, it’s purple, comes in shiny artefact packaging, and has ‘incognito’ in the name. I swear companies actually have a whole sub-market for rogues, going by the names they give things. The best part is that I already love the formula, and I’ve swatched this thing – it is actually purple! Not so much of that weak-sauce burgundy copout stuff… :-P

Marc Jacobs Lovemarc Lip Gel in Cabaret: OK, so this one is really a WISHlist item. It’s a shade from the MJ line that’s only available to VIB Rouge members with Sephora! Still, when I saw the swatches on Temptalia, my little rogueish heart went pitter-pat. I already like the Lip Gel formula, and Cabaret manages to be simultaneously in the purple line, the muted pinks line and the vampy line, making it kind of the triple threat of my lipstick colour world right now. GAH! Why did it have to be VIB Rouge exclusive!! T_T

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Poe: Come on, it’s a high performing NAVY SPARKLE LIPSTICK. I see it’s currently sold out on Spehora’s website – I think there’s a lesson here for all the mainstream brands out there: there is a market for non-mainstream lipstick colours! Please try more of them! I appreciate that KvD fans are probably more likely to go for a navy sparkle lipstick than, say, Dior’s target market, but still. ;-) Poe isn’t the only lipstick from this line I have my eye on, and my fellow bloggers have been tempting me inordinately

Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Liner in Minx: So, I’ve read all the mixed reviews of these. And, despite being a massive fan of UD’s liners generally, I’m not sure I’d actually invest in the whole set just off the bat. However, I am actually in the market for a smudgy, smoky navy blue liner, and Minx is very tempting. OK, so are Cult and Plushie, but the blue is really what I’m after. I even just got sent a voucher for a discount on shipping with YouShop (the means by which I get my UD to Middle Earth). Gods help me… #rogueproblems

 

So! That was my little wishlist for August (although it kind of covers July as well, really).

Does anything catch your eye on that list? Have you tried some of the things there? How do you feel about navy sparkle lipsticks? :-D

Loot Alert! What are Your Drugstore Favourites?

Greetings from the head of the party, fellow rogues!

No, I haven’t discovered a trap (unless you’re watching out for your wallet at the moment!), it’s something much better! Loot!

As an aside: I must apologise for recent sparse posting – the giant spiders nesting in our internet cables have struck again (there’s always at least one egg left, right?)! Things should be on the mend, but enchanted arachnids are pretty tough. There’s just no talking with them, honestly.

Back on topic: I didn’t get a chance to take swatches, unfortunately,  but there were so many ‘new’ things I saw, I just wanted to wave all the treasure at you to let you know it’s here! Since the post is a little more sparse than usual, I wanted to add a question for all you fellow adventurers out there:

What are your favourite drugstore/pharmacy makeup products? Holy grails? Epic high-end dupes?

My own favourites include Revlon’s lip products (Super Lustrous lipsticks and Colorburst Lip Butters, glosses and chubby pencils!) the Maybelline pot gel liner, and some neat neons from the Australis line. I’ve also had good times with Nyx (although sadly it’s not directly available here), and Bloom used to be available in NZ pharmacies and their lipsticks remain a firm favourite.

Inquiring rogue minds want to know! Let me know what you’re a fan of in the comments below :-D.

Right! :-D

On with the loot!

We’ve got polishes from Revlon (see some swatches on The Makeup Train here!), the Maybelline Color Elixir glosses have finally turned up (Christine has her usual impeccable reviews here!), Za seems to have some new glosses out with some fetching colours (anyone tried these?) and L’Oreal has a new line of matte lipsticks!

 

Loot Alert - What are your favourite drugstore makeup products?

New Revlon gel polishes – there are some pretty sparkles and fun bright colours in theis treasure chest – and the deal is still on!

Loot Alert - What are your favourite drugstore makeup products?

A couple of my favourites from what I surveyed! Pocket Aces (coral) and Showtine (shimmering dark blurple).

Loot Alert - What are your favourite drugstore makeup products?

Maybelline Color Elixir glosses! Finally! :-D We don’t have all the colours, but more may eventuate…

Loot Alert - What are your favourite drugstore makeup products?

Some new glosses from Za – has anyone tried these? I haven’t had anything from Za yet!

Loot Alert - What are your favourite drugstore makeup products?

Aaaaand…closer up!

Loot Alert - What are your favourite drugstore makeup products?

A (relatively) new line of matte lipsticks from L’Oreal.

 

Phew! What do you think, fellow adventurers? Anything catch your eye? Have you tried any of these? What did you think? :-) Don’t forget to let me know what your drugstore favourites are in the comments below!

Happy Looting!

Until next time, fellow rogues, don’t forget to check for loot as well as traps!

Greetings from the depths of a rogue mum’s kitbag, fellow rogues!

 

Ever wondered, “What are the on-the-go essentials are for a busy Mommy Beauty Blogger?” Pammy Blogs Beauty opens up her “Mommy Bag” to share her basic, beauty, and baby/toddler go-to items! Not to mention, you have to check out her chic version of a baby bag. Hey, now that Pammy is over 40, a mother of 2, and lives in the burbs, it doesn’t mean that she has lost her cool, lol (never, gasp)!

The Nocturnal Rogue: Adventuring with Tarte’s Rainforest After Dark Eye and Cheek Palette!

Greetings from the deafening jungle night, fellow rogues!

As you might imagine, we rogues spend quite a bit of our time in the dark. Calling this the ‘nocturnal rogue’ might seem like stating the obvious, but I couldn’t resist when I set out to write up my review of the Tarte Rainforest After Dark palette, and a recent adventure made it particularly appropriate!

Tarte Rainforest After Dark Eyeshadow Palette Swatches Review and Look

The adventuring party approaches the artefact, excitement and trepidation as thick as the jungle humidity…

I have to admit, Tarte’s really been hitting it out of the park for me, packaging -wise recently. First there was the MATTEnificent palette’s glorious purple geode. Then, I saw the adventure posting for a mysterious wooden artifact, inlaid with a golden, jewelled snake. The jewel was even reputed to be purple, and the artefact to contain glittering purple and golden magic! Well, I mean, I couldn’t tear that adventure posting off the tavern board fast enough, could I? I rounded up as many members of the adventuring party as were willing to go chasing for it, and off we set for the rainforest! Jungle temples are something we don’t usually get to raid, so everyone was quite excited. Even Khael the wizard, whose last experience with artefacts related to purple and venomous things turned out rather differently than he expected, was puffing away eagerly at his pipe.

Tarte Rainforest After Dark Eyeshadow Palette Swatches Review and Look

And lo, the treasure was laid bare. Always send the rogue in first, people. Checking for traps and all that…

By the time we’d hacked our way through the undergrowth, dodged or disarmed all the dart traps and arrived in the treasure chamber, everyone was champing at the bit to get that thing open! Fortunately, I managed to convince them to let the rogue go first, just in case there were any booby traps. Aside from a clear plastic sheet with the shade names on it and a card with a couple of look ideas (not pictured) however, there were no final barriers between adventurers and treasure! The wooden (veneer on plastic ;-)) artefact contains a gloriously large mirror,  6 pans of eyeshadow, and one each of blush, bronzer and highlighter. I was particularly looking forward to the latter two, as this is the first bronzer I’ve ever owned, and the first powder highlighter too (the only other one I have being a tiny sample of Benefit’s High Beam).

Tarte Rainforest After Dark Eyeshadow Palette Swatches Review and Look

Pretty… :-D Also: no dart traps! Yay!

Let’s dive straight in, shall we? Appropriate to the ‘fall’ (it’s Autumn, people!) season that this is released for, the eyeshadows run along generally cool, purply lines. There’s a mixture of mattes, sparkly satins and metallics, and the shades cover both ‘useful’ and ‘OOH’ areas of the eyeshadow spectrum. General notes: I found most of them to be soft and very blendable, with an adequate wear time (no primer!) of around 8 hours (although eyeshadows don’t tend to migrate too much on me). The names, like those in the MATTEnificent palette, take a leaf from OPI’s book of groan-worthy half-puns, although I tend to find that these make me smile more than roll my eyes. ;-) In terms of specifics:

Bare To Explore is a matte, light pinkish/tan ‘medium skin’ colour. It’s the ‘base’ colour, essentially, although I found that if I used it as an all- over wash and then attempted to put other similar light colours over the top, it muddied them a little bit. It was great for browbone-edge-of-colours blending though, or as a crease shade (for those of us who are very pale!), when you have something like, say, UD Sin over the rest of your lid.

Make A Mauve is, well, mauve! It’s a satin eyeshadow with a sprinkling of fine golden sparkle, and is probably one of my favourites in the palette!

Plum Away With Me is a brown-undertoned plum satin, with excellent pigmentation. It’s worth noting that this shade in particular (along with Make a Mauve), are rather perfect bruise colours for the vampirically pale among us.  I say this not as a deterrent, as they are gorgeous, but you do have to be a little bit careful, as the Plum in particular packs a  bruisy colour punch (BA-dum TISH!) if you’re not!

Up to No Gold is a pigmented, smooth, metallic gold. It’s not too yellow, it’s not too white. In other words, it’s excellent, and goes so beautifully with the purples here.

The matte, camel colured Tan-gled Up in You is probably the worst shade in the palette for me. Having said that, it’s not *bad*, it was just the stiffest/driest shade, and perhaps the least exciting or useful for me in terms of colour. I found it to be a decent crease shade.

Don’t Turn A-Brown is a cool, dark brown matte. There’s not too much I can say for this one, as dark browns don’t really need much of an introduction. They’re brown. You can use ‘em as a liner, you can use ‘em for a smokey eye, you can use ‘em for your eyebrows if the colour’s right! :-D

Tarte Rainforest After Dark Eyeshadow Palette Swatches Review and Look

Eyeshadow swatches!

Next up are the cheek products! Here things get a bit harder to explain for me (at this point anyway) as I’m not really used to either bronzer or highlighter! I’ll be experimenting more with these as time goes by, so updates may be forthcoming! In purely technical terms, though, I can definitely give you the scoop ;-)  

Unleashed is a nice, slightly beige-based light pink blush. I say beige-based because (as you can see in my unblended swatch), the pinkness of it doesn’t stand out as much as you might expect on my vampire skin. It’s quite a nice, natural flush kind of colour, and I found it to blend easily enough and last the whole day. The only thing you might say against it is typical of my experience with Tarte blushes, which is that you have to rub a bit at the surface of the new blush to get the colour going, as it feels quite hard and smooth to start. After that though, you’re fine!

Park Ave Princess is probably the best I could have hoped for in terms of a ‘comes in a palette’ bronzer. It’s not extremely dark (which is a pro for me, but may be a ‘meh’ for darker skinned rogues), and not extremely orange, and it doesn’t have any glitter or shimmer. I’m in the process of trying to find ways to use this, but I’m still quite chuffed about owning my first bronzer anyway. I did read that the colour is different to that of other Park Ave Princesses that Tarte has released. ;-)

Champagne is a VERY SHIMMERY pale gold highlighter. Highlighters are another thing that are a bit of a mystery to me. Because I already glow in the dark, I don’t tend to feel like I need one, but I do like some sparkle in my life. This highlighter blends out nicely enough, and doesn’t make you look like an absolute disco ball, but it is quite yellow-based and I feel like there are probably better powder highlighters out there. Still, a welcome addition to my hoard, as it’s the first of its kind!

Tarte Rainforest After Dark Eyeshadow Palette Swatches Review and Look

let’s get Cheeky! See, I can do the pun thing too…no? No? OK…

Right! So that’s the lowdown on this rather lovely palette artefact from Tarte! All in all, I think it was worth hacking our way through miles of hostile jungle – the packaging is good fun, and great if you’re a collector, the eyeshadows are nice quality, and purple, and I enjoyed having my first foray into bronzer and highlighter territory. Is this palette going to change your life? Probably not. But it will make it that much more beautiful, and what else can you ask of a makeup product? :-D

Here’s a random look I did with the palette – you can see that the colours really do make a statement on pale skin, as I was working with a veeeeeery light hand here! I wanted a kind of sorceress look, with ‘gilding’ on the lid in the way that you see old gilding on statues; kind of worn and ‘antique’. For comparison, the actual colour of my skin is what you can see in the bottom leftish sort of area of each photo. I took the pictures looking into natural daylight, so my natural, uh, fluorescence makes the bare skin areas quite bright! Do click the picture to enlarge everything if you need more detail :-)

Tarte Rainforest After Dark Eyeshadow Palette Swatches Review and Look

Gildy. Purply. Sorceressy?

 

Finally, it occurred to me as I was looking at this palette that the colour scheme reminded me in some ways of both my Tarte MATTEnificent palette (review) and some shades from my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette (review). I thought I’d swatch them together for comparison, and although you can see that there are some similarities, I think there are more than enough differences to warrant owning all 3 palettes (*shifty eyes*). ;-)

Palettes! Can anyone say ‘addiction to cool toned purply things?’

Tarte Rainforest After Dark Eyeshadow Palette Swatches Review and Look

…aaaand the dark shades!

 

*Phew!* Thank you so much for sticking with me through this long jungle temple raid of a review ;-) I want to mention here that this palette swatches up quite differently on different skintones (well, I think so anyway), and I wanted to highlight some lovely reviews and gorgeous looks that others have done of this palette – might help you decide if you’re not a vampire like this rogue! The beautiful Izzie at Izzique has you covered with a *gorgeous* eye look to boot, and as always you can’t go past Christine of Temptalia’s experience and staggering dupe powers. :-D

 

What do you think, fellow adventurers? Do you like Tarte’s stuff? Do you also have a crippling addiction to purple things? Who do you think has the best packaging?

The practicalities: The Tarte Rainforest After Dark Eye and Cheek Palette costs US$38 for 0.7 oz / 20 g of total stuff,  is limited edition, and may be acquired from www.tartecosmetics.com or www.sephora.com. (These links aren’t affiliate, just here for your convenience!). If you are a Rogue of Middle Earth, sadly Tarte requires a US billing address, so you will need to use Ship It To, or hijack a charming US friend to buy it and ship it to you. I did the latter! <3 <3 you, Jaa!

Until next time, fellow adventurers, don’t forget to check for traps!

Answer Me These Questions Three! – A Suitably Geeky Makeup Poll #2

Greetings from behind a mythril clipboard, fellow rogues!

Questing is a serious business, and as every good adventurer knows, it’s hard to get by without a bit of help and knowledge from your fellow treasure seekers. Which is the best brand of hinge grease? How do you defeat an enchanted automaton before the shine even leaves your lipgloss? Just how much beer *can* a dwarf drink in one sitting?

In the spirit of such inquiry, I have devised the Rogue Approved Questionnaire for the Extraction of Secrets. Also known as ‘Answer Me These Questions Three’. The questions are simple, and you are free to answer as fully, as tersely, as logically or as fantastically as you like. Please only use blue or black ink, and consult the orc-xaminer if you require an additional answer booklet.

You can copy and paste the questions into the comment box, or just list your answers if you prefer :-)

 

The Questions

 

  • It seems like every adventurer has a favourite brush weapon. As a rogue who mostly used her fingers, I have a specific request: what do you think is the best brush out there for smooshing, smudging and tactically schmearing things along the lash line? There’s one caveat – it can’t be MAC! (their stuff is impossibly expensive here – hello ~$80 217! -, and you can’t buy online).

  • Do you fill in your lips all the way to the lipline with lipstick? Or do you leave a little space at the edges? Or do you put in a little extra to correct the line? The paladin wants to know!

  • How many clerics does it take to change a lightbulb?

 

Makeup Poll

I asked these guys what their favourite illuminating blush was, and they argued for HOURS. Jeez…

 

 

I’m looking forward to reading your answers! :-)
