I can’t wait to try some of these! Thank you for posting this very complete list, it will come in handy for a nice Sephora trip!

Hope you are having a wonderful time there!


Oh God! Why couldn’t this have been posted yesterday?? I spent $120 in sephora– among other things, I bought an Urban Decay stain and a Nars lip gloss. I heard they were good (Miss Malcontent said so). I hope they are as good as the ones recommended here.

MAC Ruby Woo has been a favorite of mine for years– It’s a little bit drying, but what a color. It’s my favorite True Red ever.


really like illamasqua ones … and their make-up in general (they have video tutorials online)

ps: loved Jessica’s below post on how to apply red lipstick (never thought of pre-exfoliating with a tooth brush … such a genius tip in this cold winter!!!)


I think when you own more than half of the lipsticks on a Top Ten list then it’s time to stop, don’t you? 😉

Great list though, some real classics – old and new – on there.
