A young man (high school) scent of pine, leather and spice, . Pretty nice for the holidays,
Nice citrus, and a sandalwood base. This is a summer t-shirt jeans to night-time long lasting scent. Clean and manly. My son should consider this in high-school.
Lip Gloss -New York Color - Liquid Lip Shine in Sungold Pink
asaksa 7/9/2009 4:10:00 PM
This NYC 554. It is a pink gold liquid lip. Many people say it is a look alike to NARS Orgasm or some MAC, or some Chanel color. I can't wear this alone. I like to dab it over a darker lipstick for a fuller pout. The gold frost is not my fav. It's cheap though.
I have asian tan skin and this color is lovely and so cheap. It can be a sheer or a more deep red by layering it. Also, try diffrent lip liners underneath. Great lipstick at a great price. Who would think?
Lip Gloss -New York Color - Lippin' Large Lip Plumper- Plum Tart
asaksa 7/9/2009 3:48:00 PM
My favorite gloss! I bought toffee kiss. It is so pretty. It looks very natural and smooth on my lips. I don't think it is making it any fuller. I am a south asian with NC40 skin tone (natural tan). I like the tingle and consistency. Over a nude lipliner it is a great flesh tone. Cheap too.
I love this satin warm red lipstick. The only other red family I wear on my lips are sheer berry colors. Works for day and night. It flatters my NC35-45 tan skin tone. As I get older, my lip color choices get lighter. This color has worked for me for many years.
Wonderful toffee color. Goes incredible with my tan skin NC35-45. A neutral with some peachy punch. I prefer short nails on my hands and this creamy color is great.
Excerpt from Amazon on Nars blushes from a NARS makeup artist: " If you are not used to wearing blush, or only a little, then Orgasm will be flattering, but still only to a fairer woman. If you are more comfortable with makeup or color, then I recommend colors that look to the naked eye as much more intense- amazing pigment means apply with a LIGHT touch: Exhibit A for a very fair caucasian or asian woman, Taos for a light-skinned black woman, a Latina or South Asian woman, and Taj Mahal for a darker-skinned black woman. Crazed can be used by anyone of any skintone, as well as Deep Throat and Gilda, and Lovejoy is a beautiful bronzer for a a very fair caucasian woman or a natural-looking blush for a darker skinned woman. Nico diffuses and softens anything (or tones down a rushed blush job), and Sin and Outlaw are two beautiful shimmery shades for fairer women. Universally, the pigment is full and remarkably refined, and the application process- with no brush- is always a little awkward for those of us who travel (or put our makeup on in transit.)"
This mauvy-rose blush is matte maybe boring at first but has the right hint of colour. It.enhances my nc35-45 skintone well. A perfect neutral.

Noir Red is an intensely pigmented deep blackberry red. Great on south asians. Our teeth look whiter.
Blush -Bobbi Brown - Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in Pink Truffle

This is a favourite cream blush . I don't think I can think of any other blush that is as flattering on my nc45 skin as this one. The texture is a little thicker than your average cream blush but it blends out easily.
Ok turmeric works great on skin. . . south asians have known that forever. . .we use it in our wedding rituals. . .What I really love about this product is that it takes care of burns. Hot Oil splattered onto my face and I slopped it onto the spots until the heat disappeared. I washed my face after and reapplied lightly for a couple of hours. Next day. . .no scar or marks! My mom said when I was a baby some hot milk spilled on me and she did the same thing. It works like a charm. Thank you. P.S. Yellow turmeric does not come off clothes so be careful.
Wonderful - Men and women give me compliments often! It has been my staple for years. My husband loves it!!! My kids even say something nice when I wear it. I enjoy the crisp and clean feeling when I wear it. I love ginger with the citrus. I layer Ginger Rush lotion for some warm spicy depth.I wore White Linen in my teens. I like crisp citrus, subtle white florals with a touch of spicy or a dry wood. I also love bergamot. Ginger Essence does not give me a headache like most scents. There is an less "Intensified" version of this fragrance that works for me also. LOVE LOVE IT! Top Notes-Bergamot, Orange, Grapefruit, Lemon, Lime . Middle Notes-Ginger, Nutmeg, Clove, Coriander, Violet Leaves, Jasmine . Base Notes-Vanilla, Amber, Sandalwood.

Wonderful!!!! I love this! My husband wears Egoiste Platinum and this is my other favorite on him. Refreshing blend of citrus, Wood and spice like cardamon. It's so clean and smooth. Not overwhelming and very sophisticated, sexy and modern. I love the Rosemary and bergamot. It is a subtle and the best of the aqua scents I've come across for men. FRAGRANCE NOTES - Mandarin, Bergamot, Grapefruit, Juniper, Rosewood, Rosemary, Musk, Wood, Oakmoss, Incense
THIS is my favorite liquid matte foundation. I use Revlon's Early Tan. It make my skin look flawless and natural. I have combo acne skin and with this, no breakouts. No makeup marks when I kiss my kids or on my cloths. It is lightweight too. I do not feel I have anything on! A little goes a long way and work fast before it sets when putting it on your skin. It stays on! You have to apply one section at a time with fingers . I do not like putting it under my eyes because I feel its drying. . .but with the great tip from another reviewer: the drops of jojoba oil into foundation. . . I tried this for the area under my eyes and it works well. Overall I am pretty happy with it.I'm a NC35 and in the summer I am NC40/NC45 (Now if I can only get that dewy glow face)
