I love the color but hate the formula. It's a cool toned medium pastel lavender/pink color. It's looks very pretty in my nc30-35 skin. Only thing I hate is the formula!!! It's super thick yet opaque in one coat. Dries pretty quick. I'm going to try and thin it out with some nail polish thinner. Other than that, gorgeous color but I wouldn't repurchase. I would rather find another brand with a similar color with a better formula.
I frickin love this scent!! It has the perfect amount of muskiness, sweetness and floral notes. I love wearing this whether I'm at the gym or going out. I'm also a big fan of the lotions and body creams. Definitely would repurchase! ;)
Makeup Brushes -Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman - Blush Brush
aznmnkygrl808 5/9/2013 5:32:00 PM
Real techniques brushes are synthetic and ridiculously soft!!! I personally don't find myself using this brush as often as I would like. I actually use it to blend my bronZer and blush together. I find that it's too soft to pick up blush color and too soft to strongly contour my face. For these reasons, I would not repurchase this particular brush but Sam chapman's other brushes are amazing!
I love this color!! It definitely comes out brighter compared to the bottle. On my nails, it's a gorgeous warm orange red color. It looks like a warm version of Essie's meet me at sunset, which is a bright red orange color, and another fave of mines. Formula for "life preserver" is perfect; not too thin nor too thick. Color was opaque in the first coat but I always apply my usually two and then top off with seche vite. Definitely would repurchase this product! :)
I love my Carmex Chapstick but I figured I would give this a try since it was on sale. I am not a fan of blistex products. I picked up this one and the menthol one; they both dried out my lips and left them peely. Wouldn't repurchase.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - Infallible The Super Slim 12H Liquid Eyeliner
aznmnkygrl808 5/3/2013 7:25:00 AM
I love this liner!! Tip is super thin and fine, perfect for creating a thin cat eye. Also, I love that the pen has a rubber grip, which makes it more comfortable and easier to hold the pen. Formula is smooth and very black. Dries pretty quick to a semi-matte finish. I find that this line lasts pretty well, even longer if I set it with a black eyeshadow. I used to love maybelline's line stiletto but this liner has become my new favorite. Definitely would repurchase! :)
I picked up the double ended brush - one side looks like a pencil brush and the other side was like a fluffy shader brush. The pencil side was alright. I use it to apply colors directly into my crease. I found that it wasn't dense enough to smudge out liners or to apply shadows along my bottom lash line. The fluffy shader side is my favorite!! I use this to apply shadows all over lid. Also, if my blending brushes are dirty, ill use this side to blend out my shadows. Studio35 brushes are inexpensive yet pretty good. Definitely would repurchase! :)
Lipstick -Revlon - Super Lustrous Matte in Smoked Peach 013
aznmnkygrl808 5/3/2013 7:17:00 AM
Gorgeous color; it's a straight up peach color that looks pretty against my nc25-30 warm skin tone. Only problem I have is that because it is a matte lipstick, the formula is ridiculously drying!!! I love mattes but this lipstick sucked!! While the product was on my lips, my lips were hella dry. Even after I took it off, my lips were completely gross and peely. What a shame because this color is really pretty. Definitely would not repurchase :(
Mascara -Maybelline - Lash Discovery Mini-Brush Waterproof
aznmnkygrl808 5/3/2013 6:27:00 AM
The brush is Soooo frickin tiny and cute haha. Overall I think this mascara is alright. I Only use this for my bottom lashes. This mascara is perfect if you want a natural look. The brush does an awesome job at separating the lashes but it's not for me. I prefer using benefit's they're real mascara for my bottom lashes because it separates, darkens and lengthens. I wouldn't repurchase this product!
I personally love using this brush for blending my blush and bronzer together. It's not dense so it blends products together without taking anything away! Bristles are wide so you can cover a large area. Definitely would repurchase! ;)
Makeup Brushes -Sonia Kashuk - Duo Fiber Fan Brush
aznmnkygrl808 5/3/2013 6:18:00 AM
I love this brush for highlighting!!! It picks up a small amount and distributes it lightly wherever I wanna place the highlighter. Duo fiber brushes are great and soo easy to clean! Definitely would repurchase! :)
For reference: nc25-30, warm, oily I purchased this cream blush in the shade "coral reef". It looks scary orange in the pot but the blush is really sheer!! I apply with a real techniques stippling brush. I like to set this blush with an orange/peachy blush, like Laura mercier's lush nectarine blush. Lasting power on it's own is pretty crappy unless I set it with a powdered blush. Overall, I still think this cream blush is alright.
Lips -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain- Romantic
aznmnkygrl808 5/1/2013 6:48:00 AM
As other reviewers have stated, I expected this red to be more of a mac Russian red type than a tomato orange red shade. But i dont care because I love this color!! It automatically brightens up my face and looks great with a neutral winged eye. Formula is smooth and moisturizing. I love that it is in a pen form so it makes application easier. With this balm stain, I like to line my lips with mac's cherry lip liner, blot, and then apply this product. The formula has a slight sheen to it, which I think is absolutely gorgeous! Def would repurchase!! :)
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorstay Soft and Smooth Lipcolor - Fabulous Fig 325
aznmnkygrl808 4/30/2013 12:08:00 AM
Why did they discontinue these lipsticks?!?? The revlon soft and smooth lipsticks are so moisturizing!!! This color is a gorgeous browny wine brick red color, if that makes any sense lol. Color is already pigmented in one swipe and you can definitely build on it for a more darker lip. Lipstick has a slight sheen to it. Packaging is exactly the same as the revlon photo ready stick concealers. I purchased this off of eBay. Definitely would look for another one once i'm out! ;)
I love these lashes. My HG ones are the ardell Demi wispies and Demi 120s but these are gorgeous! They're long and fluttery yet natural looking. The lashes are pretty spread out and criss crosses at the base so they look really pretty. You can definitely wear these lashes during the day because they do look natural. Definitely would repurchase! :)
