This is a pretty blush but in my opinion, it brings out redness in my face and old acne scars.
I wasn't sure how this blush would look on my olive skin tone. I tried it on and it looked so great! It's very pigmented but it goes on nicely and has a soft look to it. Definitely one of my favorite Nars blushes.

I have oily skin and this is the best foundation that I've found thus far. It tends to get a bit oily throughout the day, but my primer helps it stay on much longer. They have many great shades to choose from and it's one of the few oil free liquid foundations that have worked for me. The only downside it how pricey it is :(

This brush is INCREDIBLY soft! I love the coverage that it provides and I love how compact it is. It is a little pricey, but well worth it! I'm a sucker for pretty packaging and anything pink lol. It's super easy to wash and keeps it's form beautifully.
This gloss is way too heavy and sticky for me in comparison to my other MAC glosses. The color looks a little weird on my olive skin tone; it is way too bright for me. I have to apply lightly to get a decent color, if not it turns into this crazy orangeypink gross dragqueen color.
I LOVE this mascara! Got it on sale at CVS, I bought it in very black and it definitely makes my eyes pop. I love how it spreads out my lashes and gives them tons of volume. It doesn’t smudge and it stays put throughout the day, even through these super hot summer days in Cali. I do hate the fact that it is incredibly difficult to remove, my make up remover doesn't get it off and it leaves me with racoon eyes.

I love this mascara! Works wonders for me, it really holds a curl and lasts all day long! I only use it on my top lashes because it tends to smudge on the bottom lashes. I clean off the brush a little bit before I apply so that it won’t start to clump. I am a sucker for pretty packaging, and the packaging and wand are super fugly! But, that's okay because it gets the job done.

Duo is one of the best lash glues I have ever used. When I wear them out for a night of dancing, they last hours through the sweat lol. The clear one dries 100% clear and really gets the job done! I wish the packaging was prettier! It's so boring!
