aznmnkygrl808 4/4/2012 6:23:00 AM
I use this brush for my brows. I dont think the size is too big. Love the fact that it's dense yet soft so I can apply my brow color nicely. Def would repurchase!
Such a pretty light pistachio color. I am currently wearing this on my hands. With 2 coats, it comes out to a creamy opaque finish. But with this bottle, the formula was a bit runny/watery so I had to scrape off a bit from the brush so it would go all up on my cuticles/sides of nail. Other than that, this is a perfect color for spring/summer and def would repurchase! :)
Misc Beauty Tools -Clean & Clear - Oil Absorbing Sheets
aznmnkygrl808 4/4/2012 6:17:00 AM
This is a must have for my makeup bag In my purse or a clutch for a night out. it absorbs my oil from tzone and doesn't leave a powdery film on my face. Price is def expensive for the amount you get but I always come back to these. I haven't found anything better!
This color is a vivid bronzey orange color on my lids. Definitely leaning more on the orange side. I love wearing this color all over the lid with cork and texture in the crease. Def would repurchase.
Gorgeous all over lid color. It's a light, natural pink with shimmer. I love wearing this for days where I just want simple makeup. Pretty color but I wouldn't repurchase.
This is such a gorgeous, versatile color. I use this to fill in my brows, in my crease or in my lower lash line. Color us a dark brown with a dark gray undertone to it. Consistency is buttery and blendablr (unlike mac's espresso eyeshadow). This is must have in any black haired girl's palette. Def would repurchase! :)
Makeup Brushes -MAC - 224 Tapered Blending (Windshield Wiper) Brush
aznmnkygrl808 3/27/2012 6:47:00 AM
I use this brush to blend my concealer under my eyes. I apply my Bobbi brown corrector and then mac's select cover up concealer with my fingers. Then i blend the edges with this brush and then apply a thin dusting of make up for ever's hd powder to set. This brush was a bit scratchy so instead of blending my corrector/concealer, I've Been using this brush lately to gently pat the hd powder under my eyes. Def would not repurchase because it's just too scratchy and not worth the price. Update 5/1/13: I prefer Sonia kashuk's black Handle tapered blending brush. Sooo much softer and looks exactly like the 224. Plus it's less than $10, which is another bonus!
Gorgeous color! On my nails, it comes out to a bright red orange color, kind of reminds me of a bright tomato haha. Essie's formulas are either a hit or miss but with this color, it's def a hit! ;) I use a base coat, 2 coats of this polish and 2 coats of a top coat. I'm currently wearing this on my toes. Def would repurchase ;)
Gorgeous color. On my nails, it comes out to a muted light beige with a light gray undertone. Looks really chique. Formula was a little bit goopy, which sucks because in my experience with Essie polishes, formula is either a hitl or miss. First application Is a bit streaky and sheer so I use 2 coats. I love this color. Def would repurchase.
Loose Powders -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Loose Powder
aznmnkygrl808 3/15/2012 4:33:00 AM
I heard great things about this product so when I saw a travel size, I picked it up from sephora. Overall, it's alright. Its a finely milled, transparent powder. I use this to set my under eye concealers with a Mac 224 brush. It does a good job with helping my concealer stay put without look too cakey or making it crease. This product will def last me awhile. I would purchase this if I do run out.
Went into Mac and asked the lady for a concealer that could cover up my dark under eye circles that was light without being too thick and cakey. She suggested this concealer in NW25. She applied this on my face in the store and it looked alright. When I got home, it creased and settle in lines around my eyes. Plus it's too sheer for the coverage that I was looking for. (my under eye circles are dark ad puffy). Yes, I do use a corrector (bobbi brown) under my concealer and this one didnt even cover it. I went back to the store and exchanged it for the Mac select cover up, which did a way better Job than this product. Wouldn't recommend this concealer for someone who is looking for a full coverage concealer for dark under eye circles.
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation
aznmnkygrl808 3/14/2012 4:01:00 AM
I've read so many good things about this foundation but I've always stuck to my revlon colorstay or Laura mercier tinted moisturizer. My Sis recently bought this and since we have the sme coloring, I decided to sample. :) I have combo/oily skin and I wear this in #125. Med-full converage, depending on how many pumps you use. I use about a small pump to on my whole face and that is just enough to even out my complexion. For me, it does help control my oily face. I use an ELF powder brush to stipple And buff into my skin. I think I would use this only for nights out or sPecial events. It's a bit heavy for every day wear. I def would purchase a bottle for myself!
This is a rosy mlbb shade for me. Nars lipsticks never disappoint. I own belle de jour as well. Glides on smooth and has a nice sheen to it. This is a pretty color but I wouldn't repurchase only because it's pricey for a lipstick that looks like my lip color.
This color is part of loreal's spring collection. I saw itsjudytime wearing this color in one of her videos so I knew I had to check it out myself. Such a gorgeous color! Looking at the bottle, it's a pretty corally pinky orangy color. Formula is thin yet easy to work with. The brush is a good size; not too thin or too wide. The color that comes out to my nails is true to the bottle. Dries quick. I use 2 coats to get a creamy, opaque coat. Def would repurchase! :)
Mascara -L'Oreal - Waterproof Voluminous Carbon Black
aznmnkygrl808 3/12/2012 8:57:00 PM
For a waterproof mascara, this sucks!!! Such a shame because it really does make my lashes voluminous and lush. However after using it for a day and not even halfway into the day, this mascara gave me raccoon eyes. I apply this to my lower lashes and it smudged and transferred sooooo bad and I wasn't even sweating so I could only imagine if I was. Would not repurchase this mascara.
