I love this foundation . . . if only it didnt contain shimmer. I'm so happy it has a really subtle yellow undertone, and it matches fairly well with my NC20 skintone. i like the pump it has, despenses the perfect amount of product. I apply this foundation with the Sigma F80 Kabuki, and it buffs seamlessly into my skin. has a nice amount of coverage also, just need to use a small bit of cream concealer to cover any bad blemishes. would recommend this to anyone looking for a high quality liquid foundation, and doesnt mind a bit of sparkle!
I do like this blush, but unfortunately it is a bit too light for me, I am NC20 skintone, and for some reason this blush shows up quite faint on my cheeks. it is a beautiful baby pink colour in the pan,its cool toned with a slight silver shimmer to it. i have to layer this blush quite a bit, and i mainly wear it during the winter without any bronzer and it looks very natural. im not sure if i would repurchase this particular shade, i might when i run out and am in the market for a new baby pink blush! would recommend it to very pale people who are looking for a natural flushed blush colour.
i absolutely LOVE the packaging of this product! its so unique and fun, and really drew me to the lipgloss. i really like the gloss itself, the creme brulée scent and the brush applicator. the colour is pretty and would look lovely on a warm skintone. i also like that there is a wide variety of shades. unfortunately, urban decay has discontinued this line of lipgloss, so i have to buy from different sources. i really like the consistency of the gloss, its very smooth not sticky at all and the fact that it looks really pretty on its own on the lips. would recommend to anyone who doesnt mind strong scents! hope this review was helpful.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero

i really like these eyeliners, however, zero isnt the best black eyeliner out there. its not incredibly black, nor is it COMPLETELY waterproof. i like to use it on my waterline and tightline, and occasionally on my upper lash line under liquid liner, though it smudges a little bit. if you have very oily skin/eyelids, i wouldnt recommend this to you. it is a good everyday black eye pencil.
a lovely baby pink colour, very wearable. looks nice with my NC20 skintone. not too warm or cool toned, looks nice paired with a light baby ink gloss. may not work for very dark or cool skintones, would recommend to anyone looking for a pretty everyday pink!
Blush -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish - Porcelain Pink
EmmaBeautObsessed 1/13/2013 2:55:00 PM
this is a beautiful shimmery pearly pink shade, that i use as a highlight over a pink blush (such as NARS Orgasm). it could be used as a blush on a very pale person, however it is too light to be used on my skintone (NC20) as a blush. i think that i will have this product for a very long time as it is 9g and you only need to use a little bit to get a pretty highlighted effect on the cheeks. i wouldnt repurchase this product, as i dont feel that its something i NEED to have in my makeup collection. however if your someone who is looking for a good quality highlight shade with the money to spend, go for it!
Pressed Powders -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Medium
EmmaBeautObsessed 1/13/2013 2:40:00 PM
i bought this msf natural in the shade light/medium and it matches well with my NC20 skintone. the thing with this i find it that it is quite an overhyped product! at the end of the day it is just a face powder, but the thing that i like most about it is the fact that is a mineralize product. i feels good on my skin, it blends well, there is a nice soft focus to my foundation when i wear this. it doesnt dry out my skin too much and i like the consistency of the product, its quite light and i like that. the proce is a bit steep, but its a nice product if you have the cash to spend on it!
this was my first eyeshadow palette from urban decay. contains a wide variety of shades, would recommend this to someone who isnt afraid of using colour! the shades are smog, maui wowie, last call, grifter, shattered, mildew, polyester bride, oil slick, sin and chopper. sin is my favourite shade, one of my all-time favourite eyeshadows. i find that i dont use the brighter shades that often, i barely use shattered and mildew, although they are gorgeous colours, i dont experiment too much! there is quite a bit of fallout with these shades, which is one of the few downsides to this palette. all the shades are shimmery, and some contain a large amount of glitter, so it wouldnt be suitable for those who prefer a matte look. overall, i really enjoy using this palette, hope this review helped!
my absolute favourite palette of all time. i prefer these shadows to any others that ive tried, including MAC. i love the mini primer potion it comes with (i also own the full)l size its very handy for travelling. i love the fact that there is a wide range of shades in this palette (opposed to the naked 2) so you can highlight, shade contour and deepen your eye look using only this palette. its fantastic! i do prefer it to the naked 2 which i also own, as i find there are no good contour shades in that one. the only problem with the first naked palette is that the velvet packaging gets very grubby, and the mirror is rather small compared to the naked 2. overall, i recommend this palette to anyone looking for good quality beautiful eye shadows at a decent price. its amazing, you wont regret it!
I got this palette this christmas, having recieved the Naked 1 palette the year before. i must say that i do prefer the first Naked palette, but this is a great sequel. all of the shades are pigmented and of good quality, and this price isnt bad for 12 shades. i do like the new packaging, its very sturdy and easy to clean. the only downside is that most of the shadows are medium in tone, i find that there are no contour/dark shades suitable for creating a 'smokey eye' which is my favourite look to wear. also, i would rarely find myself using the double-ended brush it comes with, though it is a nice addition to the palette. the gloss (Urban Decay Lip Junkie in Naked) is very pretty, if a bit dark and not a colour i would choose for myself. its lovely over a nude lipstick. overall i find this palette to be of good use, with my favourites being tease, suspect,pistol, busted and blackout. however, if i were to choose only one naked palette to recommend i would have to go for the the first one! hope this review helped.
Hands-down worst foundation i have ever tried. i bought the newer version of Rimmel Stay Matte foundation when i ran out of my beloved Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid. this bottle has a green banner on it and claims to contain kind to kin ingredients such as cotton and camomile, so i thought it was worth testing. the application wasn't great a it had quite a greasy texture one applied to the skin, and it oxidized to an orange tone, it was awful. the Rimmel Stay Matte foundation provided very little coverage, i was so disappointed with the results. the only good points to this foundation was the packaing, the squeezy tube was easy to dispense the product and the nozzle was very hygenic. .
High Beam is my all- time favourite highlighter. it is HG product to me. i absolutely love it to apply on the highest point of my cheekbones over by blush, on the inner corners of my eyes, on my collar bones, its fabulous! the product itself is a shimmery pearlescent pale pink colour, which blends out beautifully to give a lovely sheen on the skin. my only gripe would be about the packaging, i like the glass bottle, but i am very careful when handleing is as i am afraid it will smash if i drop it. also the brush deposits too much product if applied directly to the skin, so you must wipe the brush on the back of your hand fist and then dab it on with your fingers. it is lovely to use mixed in with foundation or tinted moisturiser, to give the face an overll glow. i like the fact that it can be used on most skintones, and on every skin type (oily or dry). i definately recommend this product!
i was quite disappointed with this product. first off, you only get 11ml of product for almost €30 euro. the packaging is very pretty, i like the design and the colour scheme, as i do with most Benefit products. but the product was an absolute rip off for the amount of money i paid for it. to me it seems like an expensive, pink moisturiser. i use it sparingly mixed in with my foundation (L'oreal infallible) and highlighter (Benefit high beam). i find that it does not do much to improve the condition of my skin, and it doesnt live up to its claims as i find it didnt 'brighten' my face in any way. unfortunately, this product was a dud for me. i found it to be virtually useless and no longer bother to incude it in my makeup routine. i will use up the end of it, but i will not repurchase. i do not recommend it to any of you lovely people, save our $$$ and buy something worth using!
this is a HG eye product for me. I absolutely HATE Benefit eyeliners, but eye bright is amazing. i use it on my browbone, inner corners of my eyes, and even on my waterline to give me a wide awake look, this product really makes ,y eyes look alot brighter and awake especially if i am wearing darker eye makeup on the lid. i like the packaging of the product, i find the chunky pencil quick and easy to use, and it is much easier to apply than it is in the pan form (e.g in the Benefit Smokin' Eyes kit). the only problem i have is the price. i do not think it is justifiable to spend over 20 euro on an eye pencil, i find most benefit products to be overpriced. however, this product is of excellent quality, and i recommend it to people who are looking for a luxury eye pencil to brighten things up a bit!
I bought Coralista blush in the duty free when i was going to spain last year, as i didnt own ay coral blush. this is now one of my all-time favourite summer blushes. I love the amount of shimmer it has in it, its not too glittery but gives a lovely glowy effect. The colour itself is beautiful (on my nc20 skintone) except it takes a bit of building up to get the colour to show up as pigmented as i would like. as for the packaging, Benefit in general has the most creative, colourful packaging in my opinion, and the box that this particular blush comes in is very pretty. i also like that a mirror and little brush are included, which i find handy. the only downside to this blush is the price (€33.50 in Ireland) and the cardboard packaging my become worn over time. overall, i enjoy this blush very much, and if you have the money to spend on a new, coral blush, then i recommend it!
