I finally got my my hands on this blush! This blush isnt my favorite formulation (Satin) because I have to pack on the color! Keep in mind Im NC30 and this barely shows up on me but when I lighthly pack it on my cheeks, it gives me a natural pink cheek! Although the pakcing it on annoys me, i like the color it gives. This is best for fairer skin though. I love to pair this with MAC Pretty Baby beauty powder. Lovely pair if you have it! Ohhh and I also like how its not soo shimmery and not too matte either

I have this color on my nails right now & its the first one from this line that ive purchased and lemme tell you that Im hooked! I love the brush of this cuz it makes it easier and faster to apply nailpolish! The color is very neutral which was what I was looking for. Its not too white so its pretty subtle to go with any outfit! The formula is great and it dries pretty fast. I used two coats to get the perfect color :)) I will definately buy more from this line!!! Not to mention, its a few bucks cheaper than OPI.
Eye Makeup Remover -Lancome - Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover
piinkcheeks27 6/24/2011 8:59:00 PM
I had a sample size of this when I went to purchase their foundation and I was skeptical of this product cuz it reminds me of the cliniques eye makeup remover (which I absolutely hate!!!). Soooo giving this a try, I was thinkking i was going to hate it. Turns out, i really like this stuff! It takes out my eyemakeup really well & doesnt sting at all like the clinique one! I might consider buying the full size one when mine runs out because its gentle of the eyes. My only downfall to this product is the smell >,< Im not a fan of the rose smell but it does go away. Update: Bought the full size! HG makeup remover for my eyes :)))
My friend gave me a sample of hers and I love this stuff! I kick myself for not buying the bigger size before they did the package change because Naked pigment is one of those pigments that you MUST have! Its great for a natural look. I havent tried it out yet on my cheekbones, but I will soon! I love this as a highlight on my brow bone! Stunning! The fall out isnt that much if you tap your brush and you pat the pigment on your lid. Its awesome stuff!!!
This is my all time FAVORITE perfume! Its such a classic perfume that I cant go for another one. Its been my fave for a while now and even though I try other perfumes, i still find myself reaching for this. I love the combo of it with the lotion as well. Love the smell and it lasts all day! Hopefully they will keep this perfume around foooreevvverr hehehe :))
Wouuld I buy this again? NEVER IN MY LIFE! I think this is the worse eyeshadow MAC has ever made. I bought it first thinking it will be a nice similar color to UD Chopper eyeshadow, but I was dead wrong. This color looks nice when you swatch it but as soon as i tried it out the next day, I was so disappointed because all I saw was glitter on my face, not my eye! It was sooo disappointing. Such a pretty color in the pan but not at all when its on your eyes. If you like this color, then I would suggest Urban Decay's Chopper. STRAY AWAAAAY FROM HONEYLUST!
Cleansers -Neutrogena - All-In-One Makeup Removing Cleansing Wipes
piinkcheeks27 6/2/2011 2:45:00 PM
This is my HG product for removing my makeup ESPECIALLY my eye makeup! That includes waterproof mascara as well! Their other cream makeup remover sucks but this is the total opposite! I love how each wipe has just enough product and its never too watery. I love the smell and I dont care much that it leaves my face looking "oily" cuz I wash my face with another cleansor to make sure everything is off! I loove this so much I bought the packs at Costco which saves you a lot. It includes travel packs as well which is a bonus! Try this!
I feel like Im the last person on this makeup obsessed world to get Warm Soul! I dont know why it took me forever to get this blush cuz Ive heard so many good things about it & its one of my fav YT gurus favorite as well. I picked this up last weekk and let me tell you after two days of using it, IM IN LOOOVE! Im Nc30 skintone and this blush is just perfect. It gives me this healthy glow and Im able to build up the color. At first I used my MAC 129 brush for applying it but found I didnt like how that looked so I tried the 187 & it applied way better! I like the finish it gives my skin, but never overdone. This is my second mineralized blush from MAC (the other one is Dainty) and I think this is their best one yet. If you are looking for a natural, glowing cheek look, I think Warm Soul will be up your alley. I really enjoy this blush color and I dont plan on buying any more blushes ( I have too many) because this blush is just great!
Im totally stocking up on these brushes! I use to love the sonia kashuk eyeshadow brushes, but realized that they get scratchy n hurt. These are awesome for a dollar and my local target always has em! I love how it packs on color and it hasnt shed on me when I wash em! Worth the dollar, and I plan on getting more!
I bought this blush because I heard that it's a dupe for MAC Pink Swoon blush. Ive always wanted to try that blush, but always back out when the time comes. I figured this is a cheaper alternative. I was really scared of the color at first because it is pretty vibrant, but with a light hand and my 129 brush, it was so pretty! It gave my NC30 skin a nice healthy flushed cheek look. I think it's a pretty close dupe, if not more pigmented than Pink Swoon. Just be advised that you don't need too much of this (unless you are going for that clown look). A must have in the ELF collection in my opinion :) Great buy for only 3 bucks!
Lip Treatments -Aveeno - Essential Moisture Lip Conditioner with SPF 15
piinkcheeks27 3/31/2011 9:41:00 PM
Im a chapstick fiend, but this one isnt a homerun. I find it doesn't moisturize my lips, but just sits there.I have it on as I type this up and I can still feel the dry skin on my lips with 10 min of wear. Im just trying to use up the tube so I dont waste money. After a while, it just feels waxy and not a good feeling. Sometimes it feels like grease yeeeeeuuuuuk! I thought that being the brand Aveeno it would be great but it's a miss. On the plus side, it has SPF. I guess that's the only thing I like.
My new fav lippy! The formulation on this line is quite amazing! Way better than Maybelline in my opinion! Plus the packaging is way sleeeker. Romance is the first one i bought, but definately not the last for sure. This is such a lovely shade that is different than some lipsticks. I can use this for a variety of looks and they all work. I find i always put this in my purse and use it mostly everyday. Look into these lippys cuz they are something special!
Styling Products -Pureology - Super Smooth Relaxing Serum
piinkcheeks27 3/26/2011 1:43:00 AM
I just recently discovered this bottle at the back of my hair products, but now it's in the forefront! I love this little bad boy and its a dream if you have really thick hair and you want to smooth it out. Its best appplied when your hair is wet and you blow dry, and then proceed to flat iron if you prefer. The smell can be different to some people, but I kinda like it. You need very little of this, so the pump is something to adjust to cuz if you get to much, theres no way of putting it back! and trust me when its too much, your hair is like a greaseball!!! Note cute! Other than that, I know this is a pricey product, but if you are in the market to try something new and you have thick hair, this is a nice one to invest on.
Highlighters -Victoria's Secret - Radiant Face Trio - White Hot

Such cute packaging and the product inside is a lovely shade! I use this to highlight and sometimes I would sweep it across my cheeks, on top of my blush and it gives this nice sheen of glow! I saw a guru use this on YT and i fell in love and im glad my local VS has it still cuz i believe its limited edition? So if you can still get your hands on it, get it! I think its a great dupe for MAC Soft n Gentle which is my very first highlighter ever :)
I hate to admit that they packaging on this SUCKS and its impossible to get a clean application with this w/o it flying everywhere!!! BUUT other than that, this is great stuff. I dont use the whole BE steps (or their foundation) but I use this on my over all face as a setting powder and its been working quite well for me. IT sets everything and helps with oil. You only need little to set your face so this little tub will last me a while.
