This review is for the contour.For me the highlight was total waste.Just did not show up at all on my NC35 skin.The contour was another story.Its very dark.When I first applied it,I thought it was a waste same as highlight. But I soon figured out how to work with the contour and believe me I don't use anything else.Its the best.The trick is in the technique.I pump one DROP of product on the back of my hand.I dip my finger in the product and put two small dots on each side of face where I want to place the contour and blend with finger .the trick is to work fast.It may get few trial but you will get it.the color is just perfect.It has that grey -taupey undertones which make it perfect for creating those shadows on face.I love it.I am trying to find similar color in powder form but still looking.

Polishes -Sally Hansen - Salon Nail Lacquer in You-Gurt Style

Such a shame to waste such a pretty color..It takes like a million coat to get the color in the bottle and then it takes forever to dry.Its a pretty nude color with yellow undertones.I loved the color but the formula is horrible.
This review is for the ULTA matte top coat.I got it as a free gift from ULTA and frankly was not expecting much from it but boy it does work and it dries like in seconds..I could not stop touching my nails because they dried so fast.I am definitely gonna buy it again.
I got this in medium.It works .For reference brunette with NC 30-35 skin tone
Tinted Moisturizer -Olay - Regenerist Touch of Foundation SPF 15

Its perfect for my NC30-35 skin.Its even out my skin tone without making me too cakey.Perfect for days when I dont have much time to apply makeup.
Lovee ..Because of my yellow and olive skin undertone,I shy away from blushes in pink family.Also it looked so loud .So when I tried it,I was not expecting anything but I loved ittttt...Its beautifullll.It blend like a dreammmm..Try it girl.you will love it.
OMG..finally a mascara which works for me..I got a sample size but I am ordering a full size as soon as I run out.
If you are anything like me,you already know how frustrating it is to try a lip treatment and seeing money going down the drain because it doesn't do a crap, it claim to do.The best thing ,I found for my lips ,well until now, was CARMEX.I say until now,because I think I am gonna ditch CARMEX for this new GEM that I have I discovered. So here is the story.I was cleaning the drawers and I found my leftover Lansinoh breast cream which I used religiously the first few week when I started breastfeeding.(I have a three month old).It is meant to sooth,heal dry and cracked nipples.Funny ,I have read it thousand time but it never crossed my mind that it can be used on lips ,after all its suppose to heal and sooth and worst of worst ,if I apply how bad it can be :).So I applied it last night and voila I have super soft lips in the morning.Its consistency is tacky ,not smooth like CARMEX so I will not recommend it for day use ,unless and of course if you like that kind of feel.Because its super tacky,its staying power is more..I guess that helps.Overall ,its a wonderful discovery for me and I will definitely recommend it to you,if everything has failed you.All the best.
HG.Nothing else has worked for me like it.I love the fact that its available in a squeeze tube and how its easy to carry around.I love it.
If it would have been promoted as a highlighter,perhaps I would have given it 5 but for blush,I do not care too much abt it.For reference ,I am NC37.
Lipstick -Revlon - Matte lipstick in Mauve It Over

I cant say it was love at first sight.I bought it for the color but I hated the formula .Now I understand matte lipstick tend to be on drying side,but it was too much.So it just sat in my drawer for a long time up till recently.I accidentally picked it up while playing with my makeup .These days we have hot weather and I guess it has something to do with that.Its applies beautifully and the color is awesome on NC 35-NC40 skin.Pick it up.You will love it
Makeup Brushes -MAC - #168 Large Angled Contour Brush
Asheema 4/20/2010 3:31:00 AM
This brush has literally spoiled me.Its so soft that whenever I touch any brush ,I want them to be as soft as this brush which is not always possible :) .Its a beautiful brush for precise application of blush and contour.I even apply my foundation with it sometimes ,if my 109 is not clean.I feel 168 along with 109 and 217 are must haves ,if you have just started collecting mac brushes.I will recommend this brush to anyone.Go and buy it.You wont regret.
One word 'love'.For reference I am NC37.
Tinted Moisturizer -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Enhancer SPF 20

For reference,I am NC37 and wear the shade tan to medium.Is it just me or Neutrogena has changed the color for tan to medium?Actually I found two shades in color 'tan to medium' at my local CVS.One which was also labelled 'new' was little darker.I picked the lighter version. The coverage is sheer for sure.But its perfect for me with some MSF in natural ( medium plus) with some evian spray,when I need to get out of door fast.However,I do feel its bit pricey for the amount of product we get.Overall a decent product. Update: I have rated the product 5 because I have been using it consistently and it has become my HG product.Love itttt.
