I'm extremely picky about face moisturizers. I've tried Shiseido the skincare day moisture protection and that expensive moisturizer doesn't compare to hydra-renewal. I use this religiously in the winter months because I live in the north-east and you ladies and gents know how nasty the weather can get. My trick to wearing this moisturizer is to put it on right after I cleanse my face, while it's still wet. You'll see white streaks especially if you're medium to dark skin tone but don't get discouraged. Work it in well and let it air dry. I wouldn't recommend this for the summer as it tends to get oily in the heat. F.Y.I - I have very sensitive skin and haven't seen a pimple once.
MAC's blunt is a muted golden brown powder blush. I have NC43 skin tone and used this blush in two ways. One of the ways is for contouring and the second is a bronzer. It's perfect for both because of it's matte texture. When I use it for contouring, I use a bit of Nars Lovejoy at the apples of my cheeks. My only gripe with the product is I wish the consistency was as smooth a Nars.
Nars Lovejoy is a coppery-rose colored blush. It's a very neutral blush that pairs great with louder or warm colors. The only thing about Nars blushes that I depise are the rubber packages. They are marvelous for slippery hands but pick up the pigment and are a pain to keep clean! besides that, they're amazing.
I've been using this blush for about a year now and have just now decided to write a review. Nars Crazed is a raspberry colored blush that shows up very well on my NC43 skin tone. It gives you this, I'm flushed from the snow look. I would recommend this color on everyone, regardless of skin tone. Just remember that, Nars blushes are extremely pigmented so use it sparingly.
Where do I start? I adore this blush, it's my favorite of all times. Nars Exhibit A is this neon orange color in the pot but on your cheeks gives off this awesome true coral glow. I recommend you use a light hand because Nars blushes are extremely pigmented. If you are dark skin or have golden undertones this blush is for you!

I can't say enough about this brush! I've had it for a couple of months now and it's still in excellent condition. The brush has not lost any fibers and I wash my brushes multiple times a week. This was a great purchase and I recommend this to anyone who needs a awesome brush without putting a dent in the wallet. Also I've only used my brush for blush, it's perfect for the apples of you cheeks.
