This is a very densely packed small brush. It's great for applying color on the lids. I think I will buy two of these.
Great copper color! I used it as a base for my eyeshadow and it worked great!
Makeup Brushes -MAC - 263 Small Angle (Ox & Synthetic hair)

The 266 was a pain to use because I kept poking my eyes with it. This is much softer, less firm (but not flimsy) and thinner. If the266 was to big, the 208 too small, this is the brush you need! Great for shrimp eyes!
Flat brown is what is used to describe this product. Someone told me that black eyeliner is harsh so I thought I would try this one. Hm... applies the same as blacktrack, stays as long as blacktrack, just not AS pigmented as blacktrack. I dont like it to be honest. It just looks so plain on me. To each her own, right? Do we really need extra thick and heavy glass bottoms? Maybe they could use less glass and and more product in or make the cost less!?
I got this as a beauty insider reward from sephora. A good 2g is in the tiny packaging! I LOVE the color on my face! It looks like a really light pinky coral that shows really well on my skin. I like this better than NARS orgasm because it actually shows up on my skin! THere is shimmer but it is not obvious.
Sunscreen -Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 100+ with Helioplex

THIS goes on thicker than the spf70, but I like it that way. It doesnt feel greasy on my face and the creamy consistency is really nice. You dont need a lot for this at all.
Shampoo -Unlisted Brand - Selsun Blue Naturals for Itchy Dry Scalp

It really does help with the dandruff. THe only downside is that you absolutely MUST use a conditioner after or your hair will feel extremely rough! I dont know why, I wash my hair everyday, practice exemplary hygiene, but I still get dandruff! If I dont use this for a week, it feels like I am snowing on my shoulders! Gross, I know. But I found a way around this. With nothing left to lose, i tried washing my bra strap length hair every other day. What a difference! My hair isnt dried out, the dandruff is still well controlled and it feels just right. Yes, there is a bit of grease involved in the hair, but somehow it doesnt feel icky on the second day at all. I tried to go on for 2 days without washing my hair, but that was kinda gross. Try this! Just dont forget the deep conditioner. I use aussie deeep.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero

very light black. You kinda have to layer this on to get color pay off. It's odd. I had flipside on my waterline before and that lasted me a while. This, on the other hand did not last an hour. oh well... time to move on i guess.
Lip Gloss -Make Up For Ever - Glossy Full Couleur lip gloss (all colors)

Their glosses smell really good! It kind of reminds me of nectarine. I find that the glosses slide off my lips, but they do last long. Too expensive to buy again.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel
lehzheng 7/6/2011 3:24:00 PM
I've been suffering from dry skin because of their acne solutions line. To be fair, any moisturizer i've used would cause my skin to oil up instantly. I never beleived that I would be able to use moisturizer because my skin is naturally oily. Imagine having flaking skin and still end up oily at the end of the day? It's so wierd! Anyway, this is perfect for those us with oily skin. It doesnt add oil, it just adds moisture. My skin feels so hydrated and plump. You can really tell the difference! Oh yeah, I mix two pumps of this with my acne solutions moisturizer for face and neck. I find that if use the AS first, then this, the AS peels off!
Very nice for precise application of eyeshadow on the inner corners of the eye. GREat for outer v shading too! It is nice and dense. The ecotools smudger brush cannot even compare with the density of this brush. Too bad it is white. It will be hard to clean. I gave packaging quality a 3 because the number rubs off. I am thinking of giving my MAC brushes a nice polyurethane coating.
Great peach lipstick! I like this on my nc25-35 skin tone. Looks great in photography too! TOo bad it dries my lips out.
Hair Color -Revlon - Colorsilk in Light Golden Brown

My go to hair color. My hair is fine and thin so one box for my chest length hair is enough. But I am thinking that maybe I need to try using two boxes instead of just one? My hair is naturally dark brown, but with just one box of this, it becomes medium brown. Maybe if I use two boxes, it will be light brown? edit: I used two boxes on my chest length hair today. While there was still a LOT of product left, I just wiped it all on the top of my head. Apparently, your hair needs to saturated with the product to get the desired result. In other words, close to dripping wet. Still not as light as I hoped it would be, BUT it is so much better. It turns reddish brown on me though. At first I didnt understand why, but now I understand that's hair lingo for brassyness. Next time I will use light ash brown because that's what I am supposed to use.
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation
lehzheng 7/1/2011 10:53:00 PM
I'm not sure if I was color matched properly, but I like this foundation a LOT! It looks really nice in pics. It melts after awhile if it's hot, but no foundation can really withstand heat. Still... I was impressed! Even after walking for an hour and sweating, my make up stayed intact! After 4 hours of walking in the heat, I needed to retouch my face coz the sweat was annoying me! Nothing a good damp sponge wont fix!
Primer/ Corrector -Philosophy - The Present Clear Makeup
lehzheng 6/30/2011 9:17:00 PM
I dont see how this could work as a "barrier" between my face and my make up. I dont see any difference at all. THis is quite cooling to the skin and I guess this could work as a moisturizer, but beyond that I dont see the point of keeping this. Back it goes!
