Really really like this. It blends my foundation to my skin and makes my face look flawless (with the help of another superb product Dior's Ultra-Mat).
Treatments (Eye) -Nivea - Q10 Plus Wrinkle Control Eye Cream

The damn thing made my eyes water like hell. Didn't even realize it was due to this eye cream until I lost it for a few days. And back to using Burt Bees Repair serum...
This is an OK mascara. It doesn't curl or thinken my longish straight lashes that much but it does separate and stays put fairly long. The formula is very dry so it flakes a bit.
Moisturizers -Nuxe - Creme Fraiche de Beaute Suractivee (for normal skin)

While Creme Fraiche de Beaute Concentree is my all time HG moisturizer it's lighter sister made me break out. This would be ideal for a oily/combo skin like mine is as it's very lighty moisturizing. Too bad it didn't work for me.
Eye Makeup Remover -Lumene - Absolute Away eye makeup remover

My favorite eye makeup remover! I used to use Lancome's Bi Facil but this one performs just as good if not better (and the price is like half of Bi Facil's).
Eye Shadow -Christian Dior - 5-Colour Eyeshadow - Tropical 940

I personally love this. The colors go well with my green eyes and warm PPP skin. The turquoise isn't that pigmented, though. It needs a bit layering. Otherwise the quality is unbeatable!
I have finally fallen in love. I've always kind of avoided eye pencils, just preferred doing lining with e/s. But since I'm a sucker for MUA Top Picks, had to try this. Have to admit I was little sceptical because I have sort of olive green eyes and have this presumption that blue clashes with green. Not this baby, this makes my eyes not pop but better, it makes them mysteriously captivating. Since my eyes are smallish and my skin is almost white (talk about PPP) black is often too harsh. But this dark dark blue is just perfect. The staying power is good (I too have watery eyes, this kohl stayed intact for 6 hours on my inner rim, good enough for me). The pencil distributes color nicely, you don't have to press. Thank you wonderful ladys for recommending this kohl, thank you.
Good for summer when my skin is oily. Removes make up and leaves the skin fealing nice and fresh. But as I said, my combination skin doesn't like this in the winter.
Mascara -Maybelline - Full 'N Soft Mascara Waterproof

Hmm, OK. Goes on a bit clumpy, doesn't really separate but is an OK mascara.
This has become my favority blush. Soft light peachy pink which actually needs some layering to show up on this warm PPP (if you're darker than PPP/FFF/LLL maybe skip this one or at least try it before buying). I agree when someone compared NARS DT to this (except Tea Rose doesn't have to overly shimmerly effect, just beautiful glow). Absolutely stunning.
Gosh, so beautiful. Makes this warm PPP glow.
Love this blush. Can be layered but I prefer it slightly swepped over my cheel bones. Makes me look so fresh . I'm a warm PPP with green eyes and red hair.
Lovely shade, bit too much shimmer for my liking. Would not repurchase. I'm a warm PPP with green eyes.
Pretty color I guess but makes this warm PPP too much of a disco ball...
Lovely glowy bronzer that works well on this warm PPP. Have yet to find a better one.
