This blush may look frightening in the pan, but if you know how to apply it, it is beautiful. It is a very intense bright red with a slight pink color to it. I find that if I am using a lot of bronzer this blush pairs nicely with it and makes it look like I was just out in the sun for awhile (but not sun burnt) Try using a 187 or 188 and a light hand if you are getting to much blush on your cheeks when applying. If you do get a tad much just buff in some powder to tone it down.
I always looked past this blush in my collection, going for Pinch Me or Springsheen...but I grabbed it on a whim and fell in love with it. For an everyday color or when you play up your eyes/lips and keep the cheeks more natural this blush is perfect. It really gives a natural flush to the cheeks.
Highlighters -NARS - Highlighting Blush Powder in Albatross

I love this highlighter. I personally like my highlighters to be fairly shimmery and super glowy. This brought my face to life. I did not find it to be yellowy at all. I use it on my cheeks, cupids bow, brow bone and the inner corners of my eyes and it just looks amazing. Very smooth texture.
Very beautiful, did not make me look dirty or orange and gave a nice glow to my face. Looked natural.
In the pan it is chunky glitter, but when I apply it (with MAC 168) and blend it into my skin, the glitter basically goes away. I find it to be a nice color on me after blending.
The color I do not find to be very flattering on my pale skin. 3 coats and it still wasn't opaque. A bit streaky.
This shampoo stripped out my dye. I was using a regular moisturizing shampoo, and it was just fine. But wanted to try a different color for my red hair, and my hair lasted 2 washes with this, and it looks like I haven't colored my hair in months. Try a color depositing shampoo if your'e a red head.
I wish it had more staying power. After awhile my brows start to move a bit (and I trim my brows, they arent long at all) And I think the spout is too small, too much of the product gets knocked off and so i have to keep getting more. Kinda crappy.

Its soft and places the color great.I just wish it were a little bit more dense personally.
Great staple brush. Soft, dense, packs on the color well.
I'm not sure about this. It's supposed to be sheer, but I don't think it even shows up at all. I just was hoping to use this alone during the summer...but if it doesn't show up its not really worth it. And I use the prep&prime powder to set my makeup. so this is kinda worthless to me.

I picked one with alot more of the light cream color and less of the dark. so on me (NC15) it works like a great highlighter. not too much shimmer.

Smells wonderful, moisturizing a bit though no more than any lip balm. But it feels sticky and the packaging makes me never use it.
I love honey. I use it on my face. leave it there for 15 mins, wash off. and my skin is so much softer and my some redness goes away.
