I like this foundation. It's lightweight, feels so comfortable to wear and makes my skin look really good and healthy. It doesn't cling to dry patches. It gives a really beautiful effect. I get compliments when I wear it. The packaging looks chic but it is kind of annoying in reality. for reference- I am NC30 and wear Punjab

Lightweight powder, goes on smooth and gives a nice 'flawless' soft finish. One big problem , it oxidised horribly on me and made me look so orange and muddy. The shade collection in this is really bizarro anyway, The 'light' shade was too dark for my NC30ish skin.
I was waiting for Nars to make a creamy/liquid version of their concealer and I'm so happy that it finally arrived. My shade is custard (I am around NC30) and it's perfect match for my undereyes. This is HG for me

I really like this blusher. Looks warm pink on my olive yellow toned skin(around NC30), many people have complained about it not showing on their skin but I haven't personally experienced this problem. The colour shows just fine on my skin. The packaging is ok but the included brush is awful(I always use my separately bought brushes for everything though). overall its a nice everyday choice for me- great value, great colour.
Pressed Powders -Chanel - Poudre Universelle Compacte

I have this in Translucent 2/ 30 Naturel. I really like it- it gives a nice glow to my skin. I use it as a finishing powder- very lightly. The packaging is very elegant and chic- but of course its chanel. Only possibly downside is that maybe it's expensive- but of course its chanel ;)
This is an HG product for me. It's very moisturising, slightly plumping, smells gorgeous and it last a long time(I mean both the jar last a long time and that it stays on the lips for a long time). I love Nuxe products, they are very popular in Paris. It has no shine or colour, so anyone can use it- even children and people who don't wear makeup.
This is good for my eyes- i like the texture and it is very moisturising. Its a good base for my concealer too. I'm currently looking into other alternatives- I can't name this one HG without trying out other competing brands first.

Originally bought for my 12 year old cousin as a cheaper alternative to the Lancome Juicy Tubes. I thought it would be appropriate for her- to use at parties etc as a little fun introduction to makeup. I purchased it online so I didn't get to do a test sniff or swatch. My cousin adored it and when I tried a bit- I could see why. Cute shade(clear, glossy with a subtle reddish tint), smells sweet and it taste nice. Its just cute all-over! It's also very moisturising. I ending buying one as an everyday casual lipgloss. Will definitely buy at again at some point- its cute, cheap and fun.
