I was hoping this would give my lashes volume, but it didn't. It's an ok mascara. I wouldn't buy this again. Plus, it smells a bit weird.
I love this mascara (I am on my second tube)! It claims to lengthen, curl and volumize your lashes. I agree with lengthening and curling. This mascara holds a curl extremely well. I have straight lashes. I curl my lashes using the Shiseido eyelash curler; and with Singulier, they stay curled until I decide to remove them. I don't think it is good at volumizing though, thus, the four lippies. This is a great everyday mascara. It is quite expensive though, but I am very satisfied with this mascara and I will keep repurchasing!
Love this! I like putting on nail polish before I go to sleep. When I use Seche Vite, my nail polish still looks amazing when I wake up. The top coats that I used to use before will leave bed sheet marks on my nails from when I go to sleep. Only negative I think is that this has an awful smell. Its too strong for me, but I can deal with 5 minutes of that.
I love this for contouring (I am an NC30). I use the MAC 109 brush to apply and blend it. It gives me the perfect contour color. You have to blend it really well or else it will look muddy.
HG foundation! Since I do not need a lot of coverage, the Face and Body is the perfect foundation for me. I got this in C3 (I am an NC30 for reference) and it matches my skin tone completely. I use my fingers or the MAC 130 brush to apply this foundation. This foundation looks so natural on your face, it blends so nicely. I have pretty normal skin and like I have said earlier, I do not need a lot of coverage. I just use foundation to even out my skin. I suggest getting a sample of this foundation if you have a different type of skin as mine. Only downside is it does not have SPF. BUT it looks great in pictures!
Love! I went out to check MAC's newest collection and at first I wanted to get Ever Hip (by looking at online swatches), but that was way too orange on me. So I tried Peachstock and I am glad I did. It is a peachy nude. Very pigmented since it is a satin. I am not a fan of the satin finish. I usually apply Burt's Bees first then dab on Peachstock. Very pretty nude that does not wash you out. You can wear this alone, but I got the Frankly Fresh lip glass and with that on top of Peachstock is just perfection. For reference I am NC30/C3. Oh, and also I love the packaging. I think I would buy some backup since I see myself using this everyday.

I just got this and all I can say is I am in love. It is quite pigmented for a lipglass. It is peach/beige with some hints of pink. I bought this to put on top of Peachstock. But I can totally wear this alone. It is a little sticky, but I kinda like the texture. Also it is not "milky" (unlike C-thru and Underage). The packaging is super cute too. Too bad this is LE. I need to stock up on this. Edit: I really love this lip gloss. I pair it on top of most of my nude lipsticks (Shy Girl, Brave, Freckletone and Creme d'Nude) and they all look gorgeous with this.
This is a metallic purple/mauve. Very, very pretty. It is somewhat opaque after one coat, however I still did two. This n/p dries really quickly compared to other OPI n/p I have tried. Definitely one of the must-haves from the Hong Kong collection.
This is the first Glossimer I purchased (along with Pagoda). At first I was looking for a light pink l/g but when I tried this on, I just fell in love! It is hot pink on my lips, but not to bright. I love the way it makes my lips just pop. This is not sticky at all, fairly long lasting and very pigmented. After a while it just stains my lips and it looks so pretty. For reference, I am an NC30/C3 in MAC.

The first time I wore this, I was totally in love with it. I don't know what happened, but this l/s to me is just kind of "eh" now. It is an okay nude color. A little dark for my NC30 skin. The formula is creamy. I tried putting gloss on top of this, but it looked weird. It looks better alone. It lasts pretty long though. I've had two cups of coffee and had eaten lunch and it is still on. Not bad. My HG nude is Mac Freckletone. I tried comparing this two, and Too Faced Totally Nude is way darker that Freckletone. Maybe this will look better in the summer.
This lipstick is meant to make your lips disappear. If that is the look you are going for, then get myth. It really makes me look like I have no lips. Really pigmented but a little drying when used alone. I usually put C-thru on top for a glossy nude look, or Underage for a milky pink nude. They look great. I am not sure everyone can pull this off though.
I love this foundation. I got this in NC30. I think this is a light to medium foundation, very buildable. It depends on how you apply it. I usually do not need a ton of foundation. I apply this with the 130 bush, stipple the foundation all over then blend it. I can still see my freckles but I like it that way. This is very buildable, because when the MUA tried it on me it gave me medium/full coverage. I love how this foundation feels. Actually it feels like I am not wearing makeup at all. Also, it makes my skin feel fresh. Love it! Even with medium coverage it still feels light on the skin. Only negative (but I can deal with it) is the packaging. It is in a compact just like Studio Tech.
I've had this for a long time now, but I do not use it that much. For some reason I just do not like how I apply foundation when I use this brush. I would rather use my fingers than use this one.

I like this lip gloss. Its not sticky and it has pretty decent staying power. I like the color too. It's bubble gum pink, very pretty. It is pretty shiny, but it does not have shimmers on it. The one thing I don't like about this is the applicator. It is like a plastic spatula with a hole in the middle. I have to use my fingers to evenly apply the l/g.

I love this. It is MLBB, it is just a tad darker than my lips. This gloss makes my lips look fuller. And I love how it looks super shiny but not over the top. I started wearing this to work because I think this is more of a "grown-up" color. The color is kinda medium dark mauve, with no shimmers. It is really pretty and it lasts a long time. It is kinda expensive (27 bucks) for a lip gloss, but I will definitely buy again when I run out.
