Blush -Flirt - Peek-A-Blush Sheer Powder Cheek Color 19 Bronze Kissed
ricerice 4/18/2009 10:38:00 AM
This is a very golden colour with only a very slight hint of bronze. I would not use this on it's own because of how shimmery it is, i would usually use a matte blush and then use this as a sort of highlight to add the 'glow' matte blushes lack. I also would not use this on its own because i dont really want to have golden cheeks. I would buy this again only because it's cheap and has a mirror and brush in the compact for me to do quick touch ups.
Highlighters -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish in Refined [DISCONTINUED]
ricerice 4/18/2009 10:29:00 AM
I never really got the hype about MSF until i tried this. The msf in the blond brunette redhead collection were so glittery. Refined is much smoother and gives a very natural healthy glow when swiped on my cheeks. I usually use this over another blush because it would look much too glittery if i depended on this for colour. I have very oily skin and this didn't make me look like an oil slick (though i dont apply it anywhere other than my cheeks). I would buy this again!
This shows up as more of a reddish pink than bronze on my skin, applied with a light hand, it's gives a really nice healthy look. Even though in the pan it looks very shimmery, it actually doesn't show up on my skin unless you look very closely, which was a little disappointing because i don't like matte finishes for my blush, but this can be easily fixed with just a swipe of MSF<3. I would buy this again if i ever finish mine.
Great for contouring the sides of my nose and the hollows of my cheeks. I even use it as an eyeshadow in the creases. I take this out with me when i know i'm going to have to do some touch ups because it makes me look polished (and i wont have to carry a whole bag full of products). I would buy it again if i ever finish mine.
On my skin this is a warm mix of peach and coral with a little orange tone. This must be used with a very light hand or else you'll look like a clown. I took one lippie off because i dont actually reach for this blush as often as some of my other ones. It's not an everyday look for me and i only use it if i dont mind looking 'made up' at school or when i'm out. That said, I would buy this again and everyone should give it a go (even if it looks scary in the pan).
This blush shows up as a mix between peach and bronze with a very slight hint of pink on my skin (even though it looks like a plain bronze in the pan), i havnt actually come across a similar colour to this, imo it's one of a kind! I love the 'frost' because it leaves me with a slight golden glow, nothing overwhelming. I use a duo-fiber brush for application because this is very pigmented. When applied properly, it'll look very natural and wont leave you with a dirty/over blushed look. I would buy this again if i ever finish using mine.
Because of my pigmented lips this doesnt show up very nude on me, it's more of a mix between peach with a hint of nude. This offsets a little of my naturally red lips and leaves me with a very natural colour. I wear this nearly everyday when i dont feel like wearing pink or nude tones. I'll buy this again when i finish my current one.
This lipstick has a really nice colour but it doesnt show up on my lips at all! It looks as if i just applied a layer of shiny lip balm. I wont be buying this again (that is if they relaunched it).
I love this lipstick! I wouldn't describe it as barbie pink, but it's very close to it. I love how this lipstick is very matte and goes on very natural and not as if you have a thick layer of stuff on your lips. It is however a little drying so lip balm is a must as a base. Guys might not get the colour but you will get compliments from the girls! I'll definitely buy this again<3
This colour doesnt show up very nude on my, it shows up as more of a medium pink on my pigmented lips. It's not very moisturising so a lip balm as a base is a must for me. There are also shimmery particles in this lipstick (which i often hate in a lipstick but the shimmer in this is very fine and doesn't bother me at all). I love the scent of this lipstick and the colour is very wearable, nothing too overpowering. I would buy this again.
This nude lipstick does not wash me out like alot of the other ones do. Very creamy, but not so much so that it dissapears really quickly. This doesn't dry out my lips either. I would have liked it more if it were in a slimmer packaging. I love the scent too. I would buy this again, i'd even buy backups if i had cash to spare.

This does not show up on my skin with just one swipe, i need to pick up a rather large amount with my brush before it actually shows up (and my skin isnt all that tanned!) this blush is very sheer compared to other mac blushes. I will buy this again only because the colour is gorgeous.
Makeup Brushes -Silk Naturals - Fiber Optic Blush Brush

I feel bad for ruining the perfect score this brush has. But i don't really like it at all. Yes, it is soft and pretty dense and thats all i like about it. it's too small for a blush brush (imo) because it deposits the colour to just a small area of your cheeks and it's hard to blend out to give a nice natural look. There is also TOO MUCH dye used in this brush. I've washed this brush over 10 times now and black dye is still coming out of it, when i leave it to dry, the dye just stains the white bristles and i'll have to rinse it again the next day (and i have rinsed it thoroughly!) i still use this once in awhile for contouring, only because i fell bad for leaving things unused. so no i wont buy this again, but i do recommend this for people who likes small brushes and dont want to spend too much.
Liquid -American Beauty - Perfectly Even Natural Finish Foundation

This foundation provides great coverage without the thick mask-like look. My skin has the tendency to be come VERY oily at the end of the day, but i was surprised to find that even though my skin was oily, the coverage was still there! Lasts all day, so much better than revlon colorstay foundation (which i hate because it's so think and dry). You can get the same amount of coverage with a much natural finish with this foundation. Will buy again, i've actually bought a back up!

I love this brush! i was so surprised at how small this brush was when i first opened my package. but obviously in this case, size does not matter. i have never been able to understand the hype about mineral makeup until i used this brush to apply my mineral foundation, my foundation went on perfectly and it was all buffed in very well. i never knew brushes could be this soft and dense at the same time. this brush has only shedded once on my, which is VERY surprising considering how rough i am with my brushes (only because i love them so much) i'm going to buy another one of this just in case something happens to my current one. love love love this brush
