Fragrances -Chi Chi -Eau de Parfum Spray

I got the mango and peach scent. It smells amazing, summer in a bottle and it is definitely my type of eau de parfum, since it is fruity. I have never really liked musky scented perfumes, they give me headaches. This one however and the watermelon one as well smells amazing and refreshing. Lasts better if you spray it on your clothes rather than your skin. I do spray on my neck, back of elbows and wrists which stays most of the day for me (i put vaseline on the area before spraying, it's a great tip I found).
I would definitely buy this again, I'm in love with the mango and peach scent.

Liquid -Laura Mercier - Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation

I love this foundation!!! First applied it with a Beauty Blender and the result was good but switched to a foundation brush and it was perfect. Smooths out beautifully on the skin and I find this is not runny at all so I'm confused by other reviewers who find it so. This has a very creamy texture with excellent pigmentation that gives a flawless finish without looking heavy, it looks like skin. Also find this definitely looks better the longer you wear it and I love that. I would compare this to Boots Lifting Firming foundation, my all time favourite.

I have been using these serums for awhile.Not sure where I heard about them..but the consensus was that they were just as good or better than the really expensive serums..And they were right..they work and you cannot beat the prices.

Blush -MAC -Devil

Received this in a swap and did not expect myself to like it as the Color looks like a strange orange/ red hue. However on my NC30 skin, it looks very good. One of the better colors for me. It looks bright orange red , something I never had and if I use a very light hand it can even look natural . Pinks on the other hand can sometimes look so made up and put on , Hence was surprised this worked so well

Liquid -Becca -Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation

I find this similar to Marc Jacobs Shameless Youthful-Look 24H Foundation SPF 25 but more sheer. Very sheer liquidy tint, like a stain or wash of colour. Can be built up to light coverage but doesn't cover imperfections whatsoever. You will spending alot more time concealing with this one. Elegant finish, feels very light on skin, building more layers doesn't cake up. Gives skin a soft powder-satin glow (non-oily) that is very pretty and looks very skin-like/believable. Doesn't transfer onto phones. Doesn't highlight pores or texture, but doesn't really blur them either at a close social distance. From far away it has a slight blurring effect, like your skin with a pretty, youthful, healthy, non-oily) soft sheen. Overall, I think its for near perfect skin who want to achieve even more perfect skin.

The shades all seem to have a nice peachy gold undertone which looks very natural on my warm skin. "Fair" was a bit too dark for me so I think the range is lacking at the lighter end.

Its pretty but I will probably won't repurchase. That fussy dropper dispenser stops me wanting to get it out and use it. I went through a bottle faster than other foundations because its so sheer. Also, while it feels light on my skin, it also feels a bit tight and uncomfortable, as if I was wearing a light layer of hairspray or paint. I'm constantly aware I'm wearing a mask of foundation. For this kind of finish, I prefer Marc Jacobs Shameless.

Eye Primer -Unlisted Brand -Lune+Aster Eyelid Primer

I bought this on a whim because I'm always on the hunt for an opaque, non-drying eyeshadow primer, and this looked like it might be a good possibility. It is. Where has this primer been all my life? It's packaged in a lipgloss-style tube with a flat, flocked sponge applicator. It's pink, which made me hesitate because pink shadow looks awful on me, and this product looks, in the tube, as though it would be pretty obviously so. Once applied, however, it looks--well, off-white is the best description I can think of--but it brightens the eye area tremendously--without shimmer. The product is thick and creamy, but blends easily to a smooth-as-glass base. It sets quickly to a somewhat dry finish that isn't powdery, but doesn't grab shadow so that it can't be blended easily. This base kept my shadow looking perfect on a 100+ degree day when I was doing some serious sweating, yet came off easily with my usual Neutrogena biphasic remover. And, best of all, it is not drying! Now that I've tried this, I realize that some of the discomfort I've had while and after wearing eye shadow could have been due to having a drying base on my lids all day. The ingredients are pretty pedestrian (I've added them via the "Ingredients" link above), so I'm not sure what sorcery is in this tube, but I like it. The "brightening" effect is not obvious, I certainly looked more awake, and it fully covered my ugly, veiny, red lids. I am highly impressed and think this will be my go-to shadow base for some time. If you have discolored lids, find most bases drying, or are of, ahem, a certain age, this is worth your attention. I'd not heard of Lune+Aster before I saw it on social media, but I'll be looking at more of their products. The price is $22 for .36 oz, and I absolutely will repurchase. BTW, I just noticed that the label on the bottom of my tube reads "1.5 Light." There are no other shades listed on the Lune+Aster website, but perhaps they'll expand the range in the future.

Concealers -NARS -Radiant Creamy Concealer

Ok, so I tried this on years ago at a department store and wore it around awhile and was not impressed. They also said my color was the vanilla one and when I wore it just screamed I have on concealer. I decided to give this a go again because I wanted a concealer I could wear alone without foundation and the woman at Ulta recommended it. So, I got the color creme brulee and I love it. I have read a lot of people say it creased on them and that is what it did initially for me but not this time. I can wear this and it blends in nicely with my skin color. It also does brighten my eye area but looks natural and does not scream I have on concealer. I also have to say I wore this to the pool, not intending to swim, but my little guy asked me to on a water slide and I did and it stayed on, even when I was dunked in 12 feet of water and lasted throughout his baseball game after. I didn't have time to shower so don't judge me. Overall, I would buy this again.

Concealers -Clinique -Airbrush Concealer

I got recommended this by a friend. It worked well for her. But to me it is kinda mediocre. I like its consistency, it's the right amount of fluid and cream. Easy to blend. Nice shades of colors, easy to match. However doesnt brighten up the undereye, leaves creases below the eyes and does not conceal well.

Self Tanners -Shiseido -Brilliant Bronze Quick Self-Tanning Gel

I used to work in the cosmetic industry and have tried sooooooo many self tanners. They are usually messy, sticky, smelly and you have to walk around naked until they dry. I don’t understand why this has such a low rating. I’ve been using it for years and always return to it. The self tanner smell is quite light, it’s clear therefore it dries quickly without leaving any streaks behind because it’s a gel. I am fair to medium skin toned and it gives the most natural, beautiful golden hue. I had someone ask me the other day how I get my arms tanned so perfectly, lol. I would highly recommend.
