Concealers -Make Up For Ever - Full Cover Concealer
MakeupMyWorld21 11/30/2011 11:06:00 AM
This is the best concealer I have tried-by far. For me, this works well for everything. Under eye and for blemishes. I have few blemishes and it hides them all. This is an ultra long-lasting, matte finish, oil-free, waterproof, full coverage concealer. It covers major imperfections like scars, hyperpigmentation, major discoloration, burns, and tattoos. This light and creamy concealer contains a high concentration of pigments that stay put, making it perfect for use on the face, as well for the under eye. Def my HG concealer. I'm in the shade Vanilla 5. I use this with my MAC 195 concealer brush on top of my Chan Vitalumiere Aqua foundation.
I love Mac products, but this was just a huge disappointment for me. It broke me out, a lot. I just don't like it one bit. I couldn't even find the right shade. :(
This mascara is not so good. It's not a FABULOUS mascara...it just lengthen my lashes. But thats all. It didn't even lengthen my lashes very well. Great disappointment I guess.
I've got to say, I have only been wearing these for like, a month now. I haven't even touched any of my MAC lipsticks. This is the most moisturising lipstick I've used. This also looks so glossy which I love. And the packaging, isn't it not just gorgeous! Personally, I love this fast-growing sheer lipstick trend Ė it gives me the confidence to wear slightly more daring shades than I would do normally. The odd slip-up around the lip-line doesnít necessarily spell Ďcatastropheí when working with these more modern, transparent textures. Add to this the fact that the finish is shiny and has a plumping effect, and Iím absolutely sold! I absolutely adore New Look, which is a vibrant red that I really feel comfortable wearing. I also love Dior kiss which is just a soft pink when applied to your lips.
A lightly frosted, tinted powder that gives skin sheer natural color and highlights effects. Ideal for enhancing or strenghtening a tan. It is a dirty brown with a very fine golden shimmer strewn through the powder thatís barely noticeable when used. I donít find it turns orange-y at all, so I like it for a bronzing option. Itís dark enough to work on light to medium dark complexions, but itís not so dark that it will look drastic on lighter skin tones. It's a As I mentioned, I use this to give me color instead of contouring since it has shimmer. Contouring is best used with matte colors but that is just my preference. This bronzer wears for 3-4 hours the most before it starts fading, as any makeup does on my face. Besides being a bronzer, you can also use it as a blusher too. powder with fine gold shimmers, great for contouring or add color to skin.This has more brown tinge to it but as it applies sheer, it does not make your face look dark or muddy. I would suggest it to be used with a kabuki or powder brush for flawless and not over-doing. Swirl the brush around, tap the excess and use on required areas. Like it very much, but as I ran out of Nars Laguna and Benefit Hoola, am using this. Probably my third best bronzer.
íIm incredibly fussy when it comes to fragrance and tend to stick to scents that are floral, feminine and fresh. Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle which Iíve previously written a review on is my favourite fragrance and ticks all the boxes on the things above that I find desirable in a perfume but I do like to have something to alternate it with. For this reason I always have a second bottle of fragrance in use and at the moment this is Christian Diors Miss Dior Cherie. I first discovered Miss Dior Cherie about a year ago when I received a bottle as a Christmas gift and at first I was unsure as to whether I actually liked it or not. It is fruity and feminine but I also find it incredibly sweet which is something Iím normally not a fan of. Once I actually started to wear it and got used to the sweetness I found it to be a scent that grew on me and I really do enjoy using and wearing it now. So much so that it has been one of the few perfumes that Iíve actually repurchased. The bottle I have at the moment is the 30ml EDP which is very different in appearance to the larger bottles which have the silver bow design on the cap. This one is a Square, transparent glass bottle with a frosted, dog tooth pattern running down each side. The front is plain apart from a small off white coloured sticker with Miss Dior Cherie Eau de parfum printed upon it in silver lettering. The lid is made out of transparent plastic and is pretty much square in shape and has a small CD logo etched in to the top. Overall quite a plain looking bottle apart from the frosted glass detailing but I have to say, I quite like the simple design. I have also owned the larger square bottles with the silver bow on and think I prefer this over that one. This is mainly because the bottle is easier to hold and is less bulky and also because Iím not a fan of the bow. Its a very sweet, girly and fruity scent that I love. Lasting power is amazing. Lasts for about good 6-8 hours.
I have no clue why I didn't right this review before! I used Orgasm Blush by Nars for ages....and never bought this cause they were very similar. But I have to say, this is so much prettier than Orgasm. This is just a flirty, sheer peach.Nars Deep Throat is described as a peach blush with shimmer. I think this is on the pink side of peach and the shimmer is so subtle and fine that it provides a healthy, natural glow as opposed to being shiny or glittery. The blush itself has a wonderful light powdery sheer texture which is perfect for layering if you want a more intense look but I love the naturalness of it. I can see why people love Nars blushers and I am certain this will not be my last purchase, in fact next on my list is Torrid.
A wake-up call for tired eyes. Corrector is pink- or peach-based to neutralise under-eye darkness. The formula is long-wearing and brightens dark circles with quick, just-right coverage that's easy to blend and won't crease.
I'm in love with this lipstick!Another great pink lipstick that is intense but not overly bright. I like wearing this with a smudged black eyeliner and thick lashes for that bombshell type look! Its a bright pink color and has got a satin finish. Looks best on, fair medium or dark!
I really like this blush.The ultimate authority in blush, NARS offers the industry's most iconic shades for cheeks. Natural, healthy-looking color that immediately enlivens the complexion. A light application of even the highest-intensity hues delivers a natural-looking flush. Its a peachy pink with golden shimmer. I like the color, but I much prefer Deep Throat. Its very pigmented and the color-payoff is good. But I find its not so wearable I LOVE this blush, but much prefer Deep Throat another blush by NARS. And also, its very pricey. And yes, I will repurchase.
Highlighters -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle

A very pretty highlighter. I use it to highlight my cheekbones and my cheeks with my MAC 138. Its a luxurious velvet-soft powder with high-frost metallic finish. Smoothes on: adds buffed-up highlights to cheeks and brows, or an overall ultra-deluxe polish to the face.
Wow! Kitten is the eye shadow shade I do not want to be without. It flatters, brightens and adds just a bit of sparkle to your look. Great to use as a base shade before adding more color or on it's on for a casual look. Thanks Stila for Kitten in all it's subtle glory!Hands down one of the best eyeshadows I have ever used. The color looks great and can be worn in tons of different ways. Stays all all day! Although a bit pricey, I use it everyday!
Thought I'm going to LOVE this. HUGE disappointment. This does NOTHING! It creases and my shadow is gone in like two hours.The primer is also so dry. After I put this on, its so hard to put my eyeshadow. Def a product I regret buying. The worst eye primer I've used.
Tinted Moisturizer -Clinique - Moisture Sheer Tint [DISCONTINUED]
MakeupMyWorld21 10/17/2011 11:13:00 AM
I thought I'm going to love this product. I got it in the mail, and was not impressed with it. Clinique face products are supposed to be good, but this broke me out...a lot! The coverage is fantastic and it looks really good. But it just broke me out. It kind of smells like paint too. Overall, its not bad. If I wear this like for 2-3 hours if I'm going to a party or something it won't break me out, but ALL DAY?! No.......terrible breakout!
My current cheek obsession! A very pigmented, light pink blush. Perfect for everyday! Easy to apply, creates an even and natural colour, smells lovely.he powder itself obviously is of a pink colour, itís a little bit darker than baby pink but not quite dark enough to be called rouge or a dark pink. Thereís a sweetened and almost sugary smell to the powder which is delicious. There are also very tiny reflective particles within the powder which seem to give your skin an extra glow and it certainly does create a lovely, even pink blush as well. To apply you merely need to dust the brush over the pallet a couple of times and then do the same to your face, Iíd say you only need a couple of brushes without it going too pink as you donít want to end up looking like youíve got sun burn! The colour it produces is very natural looking though, as if youíve just been out for a brusque walk! Though, very very pricey!
