Liquid -Make Up For Ever - Mat Velvet PLUS Matifying Foundation

Love this more than my hd foundation! I got it for a friend's wedding which i was one of the bridesmaid, so you know your makeup has to be stay on all day because you never know when will you have time to touch up. I heard mix feelings about this foundation but still decided to give it a try, and yes! it does stay on from 630 am to 1130 pm with makeup setting spray(all nighter from UD). And i have been crying and sweating (you know you have to walk around and get everything done if you even be a bridesmaid before). I did try it on a regular day, and i love how one layer of this foundation give you a nature finish and the coverage can be builded up without looking cakey or feeling heavy, set it with power and setting spray and you are good to go. i think the only down side is the package, i hate hate hate foundation that doesn't come with a pump, it just make me feel weird. But this is my HG foundation and the color range for this foundation is good :)
surprise surprise surprise. its the first bronzer i hit pan on! I usually have no luck with benefit, and when i got this in a set, i wasn't really expecting anything that will surprise me. I wasn't even in love with i first to use it, it was an ok product, i guess. yet, the more i use it, the more i love it. It has a cool undertone so it can actually create a more nature contour. It wouldn't make you look muddy. The matte finish is the best part i love about this product. LOVE it. I would buy it again once i finish my mac bronzer!
First, I got it from hautelook, so the price it gets even better. (it was less then 10$) I didnt have high hope for this powder and it does surprise me! its pigmented, its smooth, the staying power is awesome. I use it to set my under eye concealer, love how the finish of my look after applying this powder.
I didn't have problem with body shop's body butter before, and since i never tried their facial skincare line, I picked up something during the black friday sale. Used it about a week or so, every night after shower when i put it on, that burning feeling started to happen, and my face turn so red, (well, more like a sunburn skintone color) Tonight was the night I didn't put this on after shower, MY FACE IS NORMAL AGAIN!! that reddish skintone disappeared right away. I believe it would be a wonderful product if it suitable for your skin. I had no luck with this product at all. I may try another facial product from body shop on the future, just not anything from the aloe line.
It getting cool in the east, so i decided to switch back to a thicker foundation. I start using pro longwear again, and it start reminding why I loved it in the first place. Usually I dont really use foundation from MAC, because I heard mix reviews from others. Yet, this is the only one caught my eyes. I love how its easy to blend, but still provide good coverage. It could be really long lasting if you pair it up with a makeup setting spary. (I tired w/ UD DESLICK and UD ALL NIGHTER, both work wonder.) It will keep my face matt all day long yet I wouldn't feel like it is drying my skin out, specially when it's winter. I don't really have much negative to say about this product. The only down side I would say is I couldn't use it all year around. I tend to have more oily skin during the summer and this foundation is a little too thick. A pump is enough to do my whole face, so I think it's worth the price, and it's still cheaper than most of the highend foundation, so i highly recommend it :)
Lover has been in my everyday makeup routine for the whole summer. Love Love Love this blush. A little goes a long way. It looks fresh on my NW 30 skin during the summer. If I ever hit pan on this one, I will run out and get a new one, but using it all summer long, I still have a lot. So i do think it worth the price.

I heard about this foundation from a few makeup guru on youtube, telling me how great this foundation this is. So when i knew sephora was giving out deluxe sample with purchase, I went for it. I am so glad that I didn't purchase the full size. I used it on top of my urban decay face primer yesterday, the application with this foundation is ok, it did give me a greasy feeling when i put it on. Then set it with a powder and a makeup setting spary. Later that day, break between class i went to bathroom and check on my makeup, I LOOK HORRIBLE, my face makeup was cakey. I went ahead and throw away that sample the minute when i got home. I do not want to give it another try. I am just gonna continue using my UD naked foundation. I can't really rate the price because i got it for free, but i do like the packaging, all foundations(doesn't matter is it high-end or drugstore)including a pump, i will be happy about it. Benefit is always a brand I want to try, but I think i will skip this one.
Eyeliner -Physicians Formula - Eye booster eyeliner + serum

love this eyeliner so much! It's easy to create a winged eyeline (well, its my daily routine whenever i have makeup on) This eyeliner is long lasting, it never smudge on me,(I once had it on from 7am to 5pm, and its still looked the same!) I use ultra black, it can create a intense eyeliner look for me. I have tried some higher ends eyeliners, such as MAC, Lancome, UD, and also the japanese one (dolly wink), i would say this eyeliner works out the best for me. I will keep using it! :D for the serum, I did try it for few nights, dont really see much of a different. I honestly don't even care about the serum.
Ugh, I wanted to love this product, but using it for 6 months, i am starting to hate it. I bought it on March, and i was really happy about it. It's lightweight, it gave good coverage, it smells good!. Anyways, getting into the hot weather months, I start to notice that my face would like oily and cakey after a few hours. GROSS! The lease thing i want on hotter days was a cakey face. And it almost felt like the foundation is melting :/ I stopped and switched to MUFE face and body, and UD naked foundation, love both. Today i picked it up again and thinking it would last longer since the weather is getting cooler(it's like 72 outside today). well, i was wrong. Few hours later, my face start to look shiny cakey again! well, chanel, I always love your products, just not this one.
Finally, i have a foundation that match my body shade. I have pink undertone for my face then the rest of my body are warm undertone. i always got matched for the right shade of my face, but then its really weird that the colour of my face and the rest of body are NOT match!! Anyways, i finally broke down to get my hands on the UD naked skin, got mine in 4.0 base on the switch shade system on UD.com. I was happy about it. It does match the shade of the rest of my body. Apply it on, with my real techniques expect face brush (since i don't think its necessary to purchase another buffing brush) I am happy with my finish. I use 2 pumps for my entire face. It goes on nicely, easy to blend, and It's super light weight, although i would say the coverage is light to mid. Just put on a little more on the spot where you need to hide. Test it out with the hot weather today. Surprise! I feel nice alfter been out at the sun for a couple hours. I looked at the mirror when i got home, my makeup still look fresh! No more cakey face for me in the summer :D The other thing i like is the packaging. I am that type of person that will give first impression by its packaging(and for sure UD knows how to impress those types of shopper). Love the pump, now i dont have to squeeze out the foundation on the back of my hand and worry about the bacterial would effect the rest of the bottle. I will give it a 4,5, the half point i took off was because of the brush. I get it, each foundation should have a brush that brings out the nicest finish, but really? if i am a person who love testing out foundation, (i do, actually) i should will have tons of similar brushes laying on my vanity?
Eyeliner -Unlisted Brand - KOJI - Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner

I recently just stock up on this eye liner. I have been searching for it forever!! sasa had the lowest price :) this eyeliner go in smoothly, i always feel like i have full control on this eyeliner. its good at drawing either a thin line or a thick line, even the winged eyeliner! I always get a prefect winged out of this eyeliner :)!! highly recommend this product
I bought it during winter time thought that i would use it for under eye. However, it gave me a drying feel and didn't do much conceal my under eye area. But!! recently i took it out again and start using it as my brow bone highlight. I LOVE how its look!! It didn't give a super frosty finish, more like a satin finish. I am grad that i started to use it again. Just bought my second one.
I use this toner day and night. for day time use, i first use the toner then the vanishing cream, then put my makeup on. I was amazed by how i face is not oily at the end of the day. At night time after cleaning my face i put on the tea tree toner. I sometime even spray on before bed to refresh my face :D. I am not sure how many % of tea tree oil in it, but it dose work great on controlling oil.
it works really well for spot treatment, for sure is not gonna just disappear right after u put on, but within 2 days, i can see the redness is reduce, and its like mostly gone!. i use it with the tea tree water, feel great! with in short amount of time i can see different from my skin. The only down side for me is it is not in a tube!(well, i guess LUSH just hate tube. haha) sometime it could be hard to control the amount.
