I thought this blush was too pigmented and shimmery for my liking. It is a deep rosey colour with a lot of shimmers in it. For those ladies who want deep rosey cheeks with a glow, definitely give it a try. However, be careful not to put too much, you'll be surprised in how pigmented this blush is!!
I thought this blush turned out to be orange more than anything else... I thought it would be a nice coral-pink shade but it turns out to be just orange... If there are any ladies out there that want this colour in pressed powder form, check out Summer Stroll pressed powder. I know All Smiles comes in pressed form too... but the pressed blushes are actually very different from the minerals in terms of colour.
I bought this blush in the pressed powder form, thinking that it would be the perfect peach blush that I have always been dreaming to get. It turned out to be too orange and pigmented for my liking. This blush is a pure orange colour to me.... I don't really like how it is just orange and not really "peachy". I think the high pigmentation of this blush was the cause to it being orange rather than peachy.
A pure matte baby pink blush. I think this is the really basic pink blush that every girl should have. It is matte and gives your cheeks such a pretty and natural pink flush! I personally don't really like mineral blushes, hence I give it 4 lippies. But for those ladies out there who don't mind mineral blushes and is seeking a matte natural pink blush this would be perfect!!
I love this brush!! The bristles are so soft and dense, it is so gentle on the face and puts on translucent powder perfectly=). I bought this brush at Walmart for about $8 and it was totally worth it. Ecotools brushes are all synthetic yet natural which makes it even more attractive. Next time when I go brush shopping, I will definitely consider purchasing them from Ecotools!
My sister bought this nail polish and thought it would be the pink-orangy colour. Turned out that this nail polish appears to be a bright red-orangish colour when you are indoor under artificial light and simply pink under sunlight. Not really what she intended to get. But overall, a nice bright colour for the summer!

I bought this colour because I thought it was a deep maroon red colour. However, the colour turned out to be brown. It only appears the colour I want when it is under bright sunlight. Not really what I intended.
Gorgeous hot pink shade!! It is such a nice hot barbie pink colour and it looks great on my skin. A perfect colour for spring and summer manicures/pedicures!! This nail polish lasted me several days with a top coat applied.
I don't really understand the whole purpose of this product... I guess it's like a rapid drying top coat but in spray form. However, I don't find this spray to be very effective in doing that. I spray about two sprays on each finger and it doesn't seem to dry very quick... definitely takes a while. Overall, doesn't do what it claims, which disappointed me. In addition, this product is overpriced for the effect it gave me!
This doesn't really "rapidry" my nail polish... it takes at least a few minutes for my nails to dry completely. Compared to the other fast drying top coats out there, this one is quite slow. However, I gave it 3 lippies because it gives your nails great shine and protection from chipping. I apply 1-2 coats of this top coat and my nails stay shiny and unchipped for several days. Thus, this product is a good top coat but definitely not what it claims--Rapidrying. As for the price, I think it is way too expensive. I bought it with the rapidry spray all in a package for $20.50... quite pricey for nail polish!! Packaging is just like any other OPI nail polish. This top coat has a wide brush so one sweep will do the job if you have small nails.
One of the very few Aveeno products that worked for me. The favourite thing I like about this cleanser is that it smells very good. It cleans my skin pretty well and I feel refreshed after using it. It claims to improves the skin's complexion but I don't see that happening. But what's important is that it didn't make my skin worse.
I went through one tube of this and will not repurchase because: - It didn't refine my pores - It didn't really clean my face very well - I don't feel refreshed after washing my face with this The price is decent and the packaging is similar to Deep Clean Cream Cleanser-- you have to cut open the packaging to get all the remaining product out, which is a hassle. Overall, I don't like this product because it did not to what it claimed.

I've been using this cleanser on-and-off for approximately 6 years now. I think it is a pretty good cleanser for daily use because it is so gentle and it makes my skin feel refreshed. However, I don't think it is as "deep clean" as they claim it to be. They claim that this product will clean deep into the pores to remove all makeup and dirt. Certainly, this cleanser is not enough to remove makeup without cleaning it off before hand. Overall, for the price it is a good product. I don't like the packaging of this product because I always have to cut open the tube to get all the remaining product out.
I think this blush is a bit overrated. The only good things about this blush is the colour and the packaging. However, as for the colour, I can easily find a very similar colour from another brand for a much cheaper price--which leaves the only good thing to be the nice packaging. I like how it gives my cheeks a very natural, pink-peach flush. I would say this blush is more pink than peach. It's close to the colour that I want but not peachy enough. Overall, I think this product is overrated and overpriced. I don't find the blush to be exceptionally creamy or easy to blend. Nor do I think it is any more pigmented than other brands. Thus, I would think this is an okay blush.
I got this concealer in #652 and I think it is a bit too dark for my skin. I thought this concealer gave pretty good coverage. The key is not to overdo it, a little bit goes a long way. It is best if you just dab very little on a concealer brush and lightly pat it on where you need coverage. I always use this concealer to cover my undereye circles and the redness under my nose. It covers decently, but it certainly does not totally cover my dark circles. I think this concealer was a bit too oily because I started to grow milia under my eyes. I'm not sure whether it is this concealer or my eye cream. The packaging is decent, but I certainly wish it was fancier and pretty like MAC's The price is pretty cheap. I think this product can be a good dupe for MAC's studio fix concealer.
