I'm around a NC25 in MAC's foundation scale. Previously I have experiment with other bronzers and found most either too dark, too orange, or generally didn't quite like it. However, this one deposit quite a nice healthy grow on my cheeks and I'm quite happy to wear alone on casual days.
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - 100% Pure Shea Butter

100% Pure Shea Butter is a life saver for girls with super dry skin like me! I always find one cheaper at local organic/health food store.
HG. I went through 3-4 of this compact already. Every time I try new powder I always come back to this! A tried and true product! Two thumbs up!
Cons: 1) Color match for olive complexion, which is hard to find 2) fine milled powder 3) No breakout problems Pros: 1) Shiny face by noon 2) Disappear fast - not very long wearing 3) Price tag 4) Do not work with my large pores Love/hate, love/hate, love/hate.. it's still one of the best in the market. I can't stand shiny face by noon, so it's a no-go for me.
Love it! I used to clean brushes with mild soap and water and I had to clean multiple times to make sure all the makeup is removed. This cleanser makes cleaning so much more easier! Dip in, wipe, if no more colour = clean!!
I like it!
Cleansers -The Body Shop - Aloe vera gentle cleanser

Nice gentle lotion cleanser that actually rinses clean-ish without heavy residue. However, it doesn't remove makeup as well as one of those cleansing oils (like my favorite - Fancl MCO). Great for weekend-no-makeup or morning rinse without the drying feeling. 3 lippies.
this look soooo good with NARS Bettina Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. Two thumbs up!
Too drying for me.
Eye Shadow -Cover Girl - Eye Enhancers Quad - Sheerly Nudes

I love every color in this palette. However, I have oily lids, so it ceases like crazy and doesn't last. Won't buy again but would use it as a guide to seek out colors in other lines.
Styling Products -Salon Selectives - Control(d) Substance Molding Putty

I brought this based on reviews in this board. However, this product did not live up to its reputation. It doesn't hold and doesn't give volume in my hair. But then my hair is a bit hard to work with. It, however, rinses out easily. :)
Got to rave over this! I'm loving this foundation because it 1) is easy to put on, just use fingers to smooth and blend directly, 2) feels like nothing's on and looks completely natural, 3) causes no breakout and does not make my pores more clogged, 4) wears reasonablly well throughout the day, although it's not a long wearing foundation. However, colour selection is limited and falls between LLL to MMM range. Overall, it is a great everyday foundation!!
Moisturizers -Dove - Essential Nutrients Day Lotion SPF 15

This is not a bad SPF lotion. It's winter, so I have normal skin that is more on the oily side. This lotion absorb well and does not make my face any more greasy. I can see it's not a good lotion for the summer since it will probably be too greasy and SPF 15 is not enough. I don't like the twist cap because I found it hard to open when my hands are slippy.
Love this! Lipgloss package with lipbalm inside. Not at all waxy like stick lipbalm, but not at all sticky like lipgloss. I got the tinted one and it gives a nice subtle shine. Definitely will repurchase.
I like these lipliners very much. I used to think it's too hard and dry. However, my trick is to hold the tip (with the cap on) in my hand for a few seconds. The heat in my hand will warm it up a bit, then it's creamier and softer to apply to lips. Great number of color to choose from. I like spice and demure. :)
