This is a young, girl, fruity/floral scent perfume. I especially use this during the summer months. Somehow I feel happy when using this. "I feel fresh out of the shower" kind of scent. It's nice to use during the day.
This is the perfect winter perfume for me. It is elegant, floral scent but not too overpowering. The scent lasts a long time too. Somehow I get a lot of compliments (mostly from men) when I wear this perfume and get asked what kind is it. It's harder for me to smell perfume scent on me. I would give this a 4, but since people like the smell of this perfume, I give it a 5.
Eye Shadow -Cover Girl - Eye Enhancers Trio - Shimmering Sands

I'm asian with dark brown eyes. This is one of the best drugstore eyeshadow palettes. I use all of the colors in this palette and in addition I add a dark brown eyeshadow to the outer v (I use maybelline nutmeg e/s) for a smoky look. The most shimmery color of them is the lightest shade, I apply that to the inner corners of my eyes. You can't go wrong with this palette, hopefully they never discontinue, I love it.

This is a really great, pigmented eyeshadow for applying the outer V area and I also use eyeshadow to line my bottom lids. If you're looking for a dark brown shadow to create a smokey eye I would skip purchasing dark brown shades from high end makeup brands and purchase this instead.
Great blush for the summer time. It's shimmery and not too bright. To me it's a highlighter, blush, and bronzer all in one.
This eyeliner is perfect for lining my bottom lash on the waterline, that's what I only use it for. The color is perfect for my brown eyes. I line the top eyes with black eyeliner and the bottom with this eyeliner. Doesn't smudge or smear as much as the other eyeliners I tried. I just touch up once during the whole day.

The shades compliments very well with each other. I like the middle shade, a light peachy color. It is shimmery, but is extremely smooth, a lot smoother than some MAC eyeshadows I own. I would repurchase again!!! A staple for neutral eyes when traveling.
I would describe this color as a warm, tan, peachy shade. I needed a peach shade for my crease since I have a lot of neutrals and browns e/s. It's a perfect shade for pairing with dark brown e/s in the outer V. I pair this with NYX dark brown and MAC embark. Looks great for office work or going out since it's matte.
Makeup Brushes -Ecotools - Bamboo 5 Pieces Brush Set (Mineral Makeup)

I bought this after reading the reviews. I am a huge fan of Ecotools brushes. I own most of their sets and brushes. concealer brush - this really applies my concealer smoothly. I don't need a lot of concealer and dab it lightly and blend. I could even use cheap concealer stick and it works wonders. I use this brush to apply concealer on my eyelids as a primer before e/s. baby kabuki brush - I use this to apply my MACstudio fix foundation or MAC mineralized skinfinish natural. Very soft and powder doesn't look chalky when applies. powder brush - I use this for blush application. It's very soft and works great! eyeshadow brush - I use this for blending eyeshadow on the outer v. I would definitely stock up and repurchase in the future!!!
Eye Shadow -Revlon - Matte eyeshadow in Peach Sorbet

Peach Sorbet matches my lid color exactly. I love to use this with neutrals/browns on my crease. I could use purples/pinks, on the crease as well. I like it because it's a matte color since my crease color are usually shimmery I like to pair it w/ them. I will try vintage lace next. The trick is to apply this e/s with a primer, moisturize your lids and apply lightly, don't over apply it otherwise it gets chalky
This e/s works great for my skintone. NC 30, yellow undertone. I like it better than Naked Lunch since I could use it all over the lids and as a highlighter, with Naked Lunch it's too dark to use as a highlighter on my browbone. I chose Jest over Shroom, since Shroom is too light for me. Jest blends really well with other colors, I use this with wedge, kid, and NYX dark brown in the outer v.
I use this on my crease, not on the whole lid, otherwise it's too chalky. It's lighter than it looks in the pan. It's more purple/lavender than purple. I use MAC Yogurt all over lid, NYX purple in the crease, and MAC Typographic orTrax and sometimes Ulta plum noir in the outer V.

I would only use this e/s as a highlighter for my browbone. I use a fluffy brush and apply lightly. I think it's too shimmery and bit too chalky to use as an all over lid color. I will repurchase again!
I am NC30, somehow contouring my cheeks doesn't look good. It creates a hollow around my cheeks, so I use this as an eyeshadow to give some depth. This blush has grey undertones, reminds me of death, YUK! I will not purchase!!!
This is highlighter I like to use around my temples and on my cheeks with a matte blush on top. It's quite shimmery for daytime, but okay during the summer. I would apply light hand, otherwise it's too shimmery. It's dirt cheap compare to more expensive highlighters so I would purchase again!
