I honestly think this blush is overrated. I purchased it because of all the hype it gets. It's a good blush, but it's nothing special. It swatches beautifully, but it doesn't translate that well to the cheeks, and I've tried with different brushes. Also, I have to dig in my brush more than usual to get the payoff I want, in comparison with my other blushes from Too Faced or The Balm, and I prefer the formula of the last. It's pretty, but I don't think it worth the price tag, you can find many dupes for way less and with more product.
The packaging is good quality but it could be prettier.

This is my HG foundation. It lasts well on my oily skin & it looks so beautiful. I’d say this has medium coverage and I’m fine with that. Will definitely repurchase.

I tried this at the store and loved it. Its soft on application and feels so moisturized . It looked coral on me. My lips felt hydrated and balmy. I love the gorg rose gold packaging.. so classy.The bullet is so classy to flick out in public for touch ups and for travels!! yeahhh ..
But, I prefer Dior`s After Glow range which has more staying power and smells like mild mint.

Overall, I would recommend if you're traveling and need 1 summer fav item.. then this is it!!!

Lipstick -NARS Cosmetics -Semi-Matte Lipstick - Heat Wave

A fiery red-orange matte that is incredibly flattering despite my muted coloring. Normally I can't pull off super bright lipsticks but this is one of the exceptions. It lasts hours and hours even on a compulsive lip licker like me, and although it is drying, it's no more than should be expected for a matte. This is a high quality lipstick for sure. I won't repurchase because it was expensive and I don't use it often enough to justify a permanent place in my collection.

I was looking for a lighter formula for warm weather. It is alcohol and fragrance free, buildable, has a large range of shades in pink, yellow and neutral based tones and a reasonable amount for the price for a premium foundation. It seems to last pretty well for several hours even in steamy weather with a primer first and finish with a talc based transparent powder and a finishing mist. I don't have a major t-zone problem or very noticeable pores and I only use foundation to even skin tone, using seperate concealers for under eye and age spots, so don't know how well it will cover imperfections when you build it up enough to really cover stuff up. It didn't show on my pores. I dotted it on using the amount I got by turning the bottle over 3 times on my thumb over the bottle opening, which isn't the most sanitary method (I need to buy the pump, which is why I gave it a low rating for packaging and lowered the overall rating). Once it was dotted around, I pressed it into my skin while spreading a bit with my fingers. Then I pressed a Beauty Blender dampened with a hydrating mist over my entire face. My skin is fair, neutral to yellow, probably NC15-20. Gobi, Light 3 is a good match. And, it looks equally good straight out of the bottle or mixed on the back of my hand with a drop of luminizer. For really steamy days, I skip the luminizer. I do wish this stuff came in a tube like KGD Manifashi, my winter fdtn of choice. The glass bottle is obviously something that needs decanting for travel.

I wish I read the reviews first, then I would hear the top doesn't stay on because it indeed doesn't. The second time I opened, it was to show my mom. I was about to tell her how this is one of the most popular blushes and just as I was saying "Look mom..." and opened the bottle the top got removed too and the blush went all over my tshirt and my mom's. It became like "Look mom how I'm about to ruin both of our clothes at once - TA DA!!"

I never used the powder one but from what I see in the pictures the liquid indeed has less shimmer, which I prefer. Probably because this blush is so popular, I guess I had too high expectations but I didn't understand the hype. It's subjective of course but personally I'm not a fan of the color. It wasn't "Oh wow I've never seen this color/texture before." I like lighter shades in pink blush, either matte or has a wet look. This has more glittery look. I have very fair skin and on me this works better for evening make-up than day make-up.

Not a bad blush but wasn't the right one for me so I won't buy again.

This foundation gave me the worst breakout I've had before. It's very rare for me to even break out from cosmetics in general. Some products cause sensitivity reactions as my skin is fairly sensitive, but I've never experienced anything like I did with this product. I ordered this foundation in Gobi, which is the shade I always wear in Nars foundations. The shade washed me out and left my skin looking dull and kind of grayish. There was no warmth to it whatsoever. It did have a beautiful finish though, and I really liked the coverage so I was determined to make it work. I found that the lasting power was really only average. Long story short, I wore it several different times with my skin reacting to it each time. I took breaks from it in between to make sure that's what was causing it. The last time I wore it I ended up with a pimple on my chin bigger than ANYTHING I'd ever experienced (even with hormonal breakouts there when I was younger) and one on my cheek (and I never ever break out there for any reason). The one on my chin took two weeks to go away, the one on my cheek took literally a month before the bump was completely gone, and I still have red marks from both, several months later. Needless to say, I will not be repurchasing this. This experience has also made me realize that I seem to react badly to basically ALL of their other foundations; not to this extent, of course, but I always seem to have random problems with them.

This is an okay foundation.
Don't let the name fool you this stuff isn't glowy at all on my skin, it kind of emphasizes my pores too so I don't like to layer it. Anyhow this isn't a terrible foundation, it is has good coverage it covers all my pimples and hyper-pigmentation but since I didn't get a perfect color match it is a little light on my skin and makes me look kind of ashy. The price is up there and I dont think this foundation does anything different than a good drugstore foundation like maybelline fit me so I wouldn't repurchase it again, but then when I mix this with my Mac Face and Body to amplify the coverage it works really well so I stopped using this on its own and started mixing it, works well that way. A plus side of this foundation is the ingredients are cleaner than a drugstore foundation so it doesn't irritate my highly sensitive skin yey.

I have had dark circles for years and they have only got worse with age. Nars Creamy Concealer is the right consistency, not so thin as not to have any pigmentation, not so thick as to not be blendable and settle into my fine lines-unless I overdo it.. I like the colour range-I use Macadamia, but earlier I mixed Ginger and Custard (now wondering what that would taste like, probably pretty good)-I'm glad more companies are realising there are so many WoC who buy makeup and giving us more shades. I'm about an NC30 at present, but get to an NC25 at times and to an NC35 in the height of summer and it matches well and looks very natural. It is buildable, so don't apply it all at once, wait for it to dry and then dab on a little again. Focus on the darkest areas, usually close to the nose. One of my main gripes is that it doesn't stay on all day, probably about 5 or 6 hours, even though I wear it over eye cream and primer. One day, they will be able to fix dark circles, until then, we need concealer.

+ full coverage + does not crease on my under eyes + shade custard matches me perfectly - very expensive - velvet-ish tube gets dirty with smudges easily

This is one of my favourite foundations. I have normal to combo skin with a lot of acne marks and this covers them with no need for concealer. I just dab a bit more on the area if needed. It lasts all day on me. It passes my summertime test as I am from a hot and extremely humid island.

I am a NC30 and have this in Punjab.

This is the best concealer I’ve ever tried. It is best applied with fingers as it heats the product up and makes it melt seamlessly into the skin. It covers up my acne scars and is great for undereyes. If you’re looking for a full coverage concealer that gives an airbrushed look I highly recommend this concealer. My only gripe with it is that it does transfer so it needs to be set with powder.

When I first applied this foundation, it was love at first sight. It’s a truly full coverage foundation that just makes my face look flawless and airbrushed almost. I applied it with my fingers and went in with a damp bb to blend. Patagonia was a perfect shade match. However, this transfers more than any other foundation I’ve ever tried. It never melds into the skin. I tried different primers, setting powders, and setting sprays and nothing worked. I was at my boyfriend’s house, laid my cheek on a pillow, and ALL of the foundation had come off of my face and onto the pillow. It was embarrassing to say the least but also goes to show how it just sits on top of the skin. Such a disappointment since the finish is so flawless.
