This color is a nice comparison to Shiseido's Dragon Red lipstick. It has some orange base to it, and boy is it VIBRANT! It lasts for a long long time. It goes on smooth and is highly highly pigmented. Towards the end of the day it feels drier and maybe have come off, but believe me its still on your lips. With this lipstick its important to buy a, if not one of her's, lip liner. The color seems to migrate slightly and because its so bold, its important that it has a form or structure. I tend to wear sticks without liner, but this is one of those colors where it is a must to do so.
Lipstick -Julie Hewett - Icon of Beauty in Thandie
dcorbette 7/28/2012 1:59:00 PM
First of all, the case that these lipsticks come in are to die for. So glamorous, so beautiful, so classy! They may not be a engineering wonder as in some of Guerlains cases, but they're still nice and luxurious. The lipstick is nicely pigmented but sheer. I wanted a nice peach color lipstick, its close to it, it has more gold than peach in it. Its a nice informal dinner date type of lipstick color and is a little more than just a nude color on someone that is medium-dark skintone with gold undertones. I wear Anouk in her foundation color, Soft Tan in Elizabeth Arden foundations.
Toners -Julie Hewett - Rose Floral Water Toning Spray
dcorbette 7/28/2012 1:12:00 PM
I tried the cucumber version of this first. I actually liked it a lot as it really tones the skin. Has a powerful smell to it. I now own the rose version of this product and I have to say I think I prefer the cucumber better. I first wanted the rose version but Julie Hewett sold out of it so I took grab of the cucumber version. Rose water is suppose to have more beneficial health and cosmetic benefits for you. I've only used the rose water for a few days now so I wouldn't tell you if the rose is better healing for my skin than cucumber. The rose toning water has a very very light rose scent, not highly noticeable. It gives the same finish as the cucumber does to your makeup. It adds a dewy appearance and rehydrates your makeup including the vibrancy of the colors. It also sets the makeup very well, especially Julie Hewett makeup as its probably intended for that purpose. I've used it on other brands of makeup and it sometimes has the same affect or sometimes doesn't help to set the foundation at all. If you use powder mineral makeup you can use this to turn it into a creme base and then apply your makeup, but its really good at making the powder makeup look more natural. I use the creme foundations and this helps when the shade of foundation is slightly off, it makes it blend in more and look more natural (I don't know how it does it, but it does). I feel more partial to the cucumber. The cucumber may have some sting to it when you apply it on your face, but I feel as though it has more tightening and toning power than the rose does. It may also appear more "sticky" in feeling than the rose, but I just like it more for whatever reason. That is why the rose water toner spray only got 5 stars.
I am a HUGE fan of Julie Hewett. HUGE!!! The products are always well pigmented and are so healthy! Those who like the natural stuff (Burts, etc.) have to try Julie Hewett's line of cosmetics. The camellia oil/balm is a natural ingredient Julie uses in many of her cream/emoillant based products. It is a natural rehydrater of your skins oils and is a great ultra violet protector. I hate using a lot of things out of a pot (for hygienic reasons) but nothing weird ever grows or have grown in my 2 pots of camellia balm I own (one in nude and one in rose). As a darker skin tone, the rose still complements my skin and lips. Its a light tint but makes your lips glow without looking too glossy or big. The nude I use on myself and everyone else for wrinkles, scars, rashes, etc. It controls hyperpigmentation and it also counteracts against some types of inflammation. The nude is multi-purpose all over balm. I grabbed my nude pot of camellia balm and placed it on a bad bumpy rash I had on my neck. It immediately soothed it faster than the Cortaid did and left the skin in that area feeling smooth after the rash went away. Not to mention your lips will feel uber smooth even after a few days afterwards even with no use. The rose tint goes well over lipstick (especially pink colors) and can help tone down a bright red lipstick color. This product beats many of the other natural or organic products out there because of their consistency. It goes on feeling really good on the lips or skin as it tends to absorb and your makeup doesn't feel awkward despite you looking very good! I can't rave more about this panacea in a pot!
So after sticking with only Julie Hewett's foundations for so long, I've recently decided to branch out into her world of color more. I bought her shimmie in cleo of which I actually like a lot (its great for brown or hazel eyes). But I wanted something a little lighter and maybe more natural looking. I ordered goldie. I wear the foundation shades of Anouk and Zazu (I mix them sometimes, but I'm mostly Anouk in color). Goldie is interesting for my skin tone. Its definitely shiny and shimmery, but in a natural way with my undertone.. well lets not say natural. It can be both an understated glow cause its close to my skin color but if you apply another layer of it, it can really stand out. I use it mostly as eye color cause I haven't mastered using the shimmys as highlighters. Despite being shimmery, its a dramatic day look that isn't overpowering. Its hard to explain it. It gives you drama but doesn't make you look like a disasterous makeup freak show. On me, it doesn't look as gold as like Shiseido's Tiger Eye, it looks more powdery gold or nearly pink. I'm happy I eventually bought this product because I hope to get a new job and if its the place I'm thinking it will be, it will be important to dress nice but in a corporate structure. And this shade will definitely provide me with that effect without looking like I'm trying to be 15 y/o again. Formulation is nice, easy and smooth. Its not heavy, doesn't weigh down, rarely finds its way migrating into your eyes which is great for contact users. I also bough Jami cheekie with this and it looks so perfect when I combine the Jami with the Goldie as eye shadows. You can buy this product in trays or pots. I opted for trays this time as they are not as expensive as pots, but I don't think you get the same massive amounts as you do in a pot that would probably last about a year or two into the future with nearly daily use.
Toners -Julie Hewett - Floral Waters in Pure Cucumber
dcorbette 2/25/2012 1:16:00 PM
I just received my shipment of Julie Hewett's Floral Waters in Pure Cucumber. I bought it for a few reasons, one of the claims is that it will set makeup and the other is that its a toner. I kinda wish it had a wonderful smell like roses, but the smell isn't bad. I just want to go and eat a salad as soon after I use it. There isn't a lingering nasty smell or anything like that. I can see many ways in using this. Like if you put on too much powder, you can spray it on. I used it on my Julie Hewett makeup after a long day of work and it actually enhanced the dynamics of the color of the cheekie stain I was wearing and the foundation. I did look refreshed and it enhanced physical features! I used it the next day after cleaning my face, and sprayed on a layer, then put makeup on afterwards and finished it off with another spray. It does kinda sting but only for a minute, but doesn't in comparison to some other cucumber toners I've used which continue to burn all throughout the day as they probably have AHA or something of the like in it. This Julie Hewett toner doesn't do this. I think the spray helps keep the foundation on throughout the day a little more than not having it. It doesn't make it absolutely budge proof. However, the biggest thing I can say about this product is that even when I wash my face, go to sleep and wake up the next morning, my skin feels so fantastically fresh and soft and nourished!!!!!!!! Its amazing how Julie's products have helped to repair my skin. I also feel a difference, I feel within the past 2 days that my skin has gotten more taught and more firm from using this product. Its the best toner I've personally used. Most toners only work for about 1 hour on the clock, but this stuff continues to work even after washing your face well into the next day. A must recommend. I prefer this over MAC's fixative and toner spray.
Highlighters -Julie Hewett - Shimmy All Over Face & Body Shimmer - Cleo
dcorbette 8/16/2011 8:34:00 PM
Oh La La Ladies!!!! I'm a big fan of Shiseido's Hydrocreme eyeshadows... till now! Julie Hewett really had me depressed and regretting that I've bought all of those little expensive pots of Shiseido's cream eyeshadows. I bought Cleo from Julie Hewett, was confused as to buy Cleo or Goldie. In Julie Hewett foundation I wear a combination of Zazu and Anouk (I'm more on the Anouk side) and now as Sheido's new I60 foundation color (I couldn't find a new O100 if there is one) but the I60 or was it 100 is pretty compatable also. Cleo is dark enough to give me a hint of darker color. At first I was not happy to have gotten this color. It looked like an ugly copper penny. But as I put it on as an eyeshadow. BAM! This is a BEAUTIFUL formula that's easier to work with than Shiseido's creme eyeshadows actually. It stays on very well and its very nourishing for the skin due to the camellia balm Julie Hewett infuses as part of the base for this color... giving it a true sheer effect. I have yet to use it as a shimmy/highlighter. Let me try it as that right now... Umm.... I will have to report back to everyone on this. I'm really impressed with Julie Hewett's Shimmies and wish I could trade my Shiseido eyeshadows in. I'm VERY impressed!
I've used many brow grooming products. Amongst some of them would be Clarins, Bobby Brown gel, Benefit, Christian Dior... My eyebrow hair is black, long, can be sparse in some areas, and never stay in place. I tried this product and it made the appearance of my brows slightly more healthy and kept my brows in place. It really finished up my face nicely. It pretty much keeps the brows in place while giving a healthy natural sheen look to it. I can brush my brows up and it will stay in place, I can brush them across with this stuff and stays in place. CONS: I still like my Clarins brow kit, but gravitated to this stick of wax because I was running out of the wax in my Clarins kit. This wax is better at holding the brows in place than the Clarins wax. However, it seems the Clarins wax, though it has some staying power, seems to be nicer to the hairs. I have less hairs falling out with the Clarins wax than the Anastasia one. So those who are susceptable to loosing brow hairs, beware of the Brow Fix. However, you want lose as much hair in comparison to a brow gel. PROS: This stuff really keeps things in place, and gets slightly tested after a game of tennis, but looks really good. It helps to clean up the face with such nicely placed brows. It handles the pigment better than my Clarins wax. So I use the pigment from the Clarins brow kit in conjunction with this kit. The pigments look way more natural with this wax. The wax from Clarins is more brittle, harder to smooth out. I really like this product. If you want a more clear natural solution to volumizing eyebrow hair and keeping it in place, this is the best product I've seen thus far.
Blush -Shiseido - Luminizing Satin Face Color - PK304 Carnation
dcorbette 1/29/2011 2:39:00 PM
Yes, I know, I actually had a date the other day and decided to get my makeup done by one of the best every Shiseido sales lady at Dillards. She's so SUPER good with makeup its not even funny!!!!! A blessing to learn about her skills exactly a week before my date!!!! Her name is Joleen at Tucson Mall. Anyway, Joleen used this blush on me when putting together one of Dick Page's pink look from their new look book. Joleen did such a beautiful job! She looked at me and said "I know this looks wrong, but trust me I think this is gonna look perfect on you" AND IT DID. I am African-American and I used to fit in O100 before they canceled that foundation color from Shiseido. So my new foundation is their level 4 tinted moisturizer, which is a perfect match. This blush was just the perfect babydoll color to my cheeks. I rarely can find a pink blush that looks great. So the next week for my 2nd makeover with Joleen... totally different look. We went with plums, purples, and dark blues for eyeshadow... and once more she reached for this cheek color and once more it was the perfect touch. So I decided to take this item with me as I could probably also use it as an eye shadow. Getting this product home, there's a sheer tint to it and it seems no matter how many times I go over the apples of my cheeks the color doesn't intensify. Joleen used a different brush, a real Shiseido blush brush that isn't the same as the brush this compact comes packaged with. That's the only downside I find about this product. Its a very natural looking blush that looks like a natural glow and not stripes you've put on your face. I'm used of getting such a natural look with blush gels but not powder, so this is the first powder I've come across to achieve such a look. Its hard to look heavy handed with this blush, especially if you use the brush it comes with. This color is very complementary to my skin tone. It is hard to believe a pink shade would look natural on someone with my skin-tone, but it does! And its a true pink, no coral color, a true pink. As an eyeshadow this shade works, but I would also use their Hydra shadows as a base to intensify the color. There's ton of blush product to have. I wish it wasn't sooo expensive being $30. For that much, maybe they should have thrown in a better brush or something. The color does last a long time, so when it says All-day True Color they aren't joking. It is all day and does stay true.
Mascara -Guerlain - Le 2 de Guerlain Volume - Noir Laque
dcorbette 1/5/2011 3:01:00 PM
This is one of the better mascras out there. It totally gives my lashes tons of length and volume. A lot of mascaras only really do one or another but rarely both at the same time... even if they claim they have a duo function. So this mascara makes my lashes look 3-4 times longer than what they really are and they look about 1.5x longer than other mascaras. I also love the way it separates the lashes and gives dramatic volume. A lot of mascaras curl my lashes upwards, which I don't really like. This one gives the look of a curl, but keeps the lashes going forward and up and not like straight up from your lashline. The straight up look is funny looking and unnatural. The other thing I love about this mascara is that it doesn't burn my eyes. So many do. The other end is a glossy coat of mascara on a sponge (laquer). I use this to help clean up after applying the real mascara. It makes your lashes look even more natural cause they give that natural sheen as from real oils from your lashes. But its not necessary to use it. CONS: The casing, the mascara tends to leak from it. I think that may come from over tightening cause it always looks like its not completely closed. DON'T use the mascara (laquer) on a sponge first and then apply mascara. If you do this, then you will run into issues of clumping with this mascara. I didn't have a problem with clumping till I decided to apply a coat of mascara after using the sponge wand (laquer). That combination tends to lead to a clumpy experience that is hard to get rid of... it changes the chemistry of the mascara. Overall I love the mascara. Despite its expensive pricing and how big the packaging is, the fact it doesn't burn my eyes is priceless especially when you're driving (I've come close to many serious accidents when other mascara brands burn my eyes while driving). The only other mascara I like is the Bare Escentuals new mineral one with the weird plastic/rubber wand that has like barely no brushes on it. It gives excellent length and DOES NOT CLUMP AT ALL. BUT.... it doesn't give you the volume. However, it makes your lashes look sooo natural as an everyday gosh-she-was-born-with-those-beautiful-lashes look. Unfortunately that one burns my eyes. But I love that it doesn't look like you have mascara on at all and the tons of length and separation it gives.. with some volume but not enough to make it look fake. One thing I do LOVE about the Guerlain formula (non-waterproof) is that the formula nourishes the lashes. My lashes do not fall or flake off during wear, there is little-to-none flaking during wear, and it seems to make my natural lashes more longer, stronger and supple. This is the healthiest I've seen my lashes look.
I purchased this foundation at my local Sephora store. I am always looking for the next best thing. So far, I haven't returned it.... CONS: 1) The coverage of this foundation is medium. Its not really buildable coverage. This is not exactly a con, unless you have a day where you just need a little extra more coverage. 2) Smell is very organic, almost like you just got your foundation from the mud in your backyard. PROS: 1) This foundation may go on looking clay like, but give it time to set, like 5 minutes and it changes. Throughout the day it tends to "warm up" more and by mid-day and end of the day its basically porcaline looking skin. Sometimes dewy. 2) Does not create pores or set into pores, and the finish is very silky satiny... it doesn't create a mask look and nor does it separate. It beats my favorite foundation (Julie Hewett) in this department! 3) Pretty much transfer resistant, its hard to get it to budge. 5) It hasn't affected my skin in any way negative I wear this foundation on special occassions like concerts, I don't wear it often so I cannot comment on its self-proclaimed anti-wrinkle abilities or benefits. I don't have wrinkles anyway, so I am probably not the person to try this one as an experiment. I don't know if it can heal other problem areas of the skin like it claims to either. Maybe when my Julie Hewett runs out, I will use this continuously and give an update. They have a nice color wheel chart where you can understand the undertones of each foundation shade. I use warm walnut. Which is for those who are African American with yellow undertones. I have golden. and in the past my foundation shades have been O100 in Shiseido, Anouk in Julie Hewett, Sable IV in Lancome. This one still has more red undertones than gold in it... but it will probably be a better match during the summer when I get darker. The pricing for this product isn't bad considering it can easily outperform many department store brand foundations. The ingredients are zany though... like peat moss or peat. Doesn't sound appealing. I really like this product.
Highlighters -Guerlain - Les Meteorites balls powder
dcorbette 10/11/2010 3:33:00 PM
So I was stalking the Guerlain counter at Dillards just yesterday. Debating if I should buy the Extreme wear foundation for a full coverage (though I LOVE my Julie Hewett foundation). The lady at the counter told me you don't need makeup your skin is flawless (thank YOU JULIE HEWETT and I guess Philosophy's Purity facial wash cause it cuts down on the oil I produce and helps the makeup stay in place). So I looked in the mirror and I was like damn right!;-) BUT I saw the little pearly balls of colors and remember seeing something similar to this in the Bobbi Brown line. The smell of these were glorious and so J'adore. So I asked the lady about this powder. She put on the really peach rosy one on one side of the face (I think its the Dore) and the more beige one on the other side. I WAS IN LOVE! The Dore side was perfection. It evened out my skintone and gave me this glow that looked like a soft beautiful illuminating blush in all the right areas. I couldn't believe this was powder! I've been looking for a powder substitute for my Shiseido face powder that came in 2 or 3 different color shades... this has been the closest thing yet. The Dore gave me a warm look to my medium dark olive skin... a nice warm glow that made me looked airbrushed and is intended for golden complexions. The Beige is intended for beige toned skin. The pink is not meant for me as its ashy almost, but is suppose to be your equivalent to translucent.... its appropriate for pink undertones. Beige accentuated the gold that is in my skin tone, but it seemed to have lightened the skin. So this is good for those who are blonde or those who find themselves wearing a dark foundation and need to lighten it up. For those who are pretty much happy with their complexion but just want to even it up, you could easily wear this powder as foundation alone. CONS: 1) Its an expensive investment. But it may be an investment worth making. 2) The powder may not be finely milled as some other brands 3) There's glitter/shimmer in the powder so really you may shine only because of the glitter/shimmer and not because it has a moisturizing property to it like my discontinued Shiseido powder. 4) You might have to buy their special meteorite brush to replicate the look at the store.. but at the same time the brush is soft and doesn't tug and burn your skin. 5) There's no moisturizing agent in this powder, so your face may feel dry (that is why I loved the old Shiseido powder, it controls oil but also moisturize leaving your skin looking porcelin looking). PROS: 1) Unlike many powders, this one gives a fuller coverage, its a corrector with uneven skin, and gives a coverage like a light mineral foundation. (Shiseido's powder couldn't do this and the new one doesn't as its translucent). 2) There is a wonderful scent to the powder that is less intense once applied but still noticeable. 3) Nice airbrush look Unfortunately the lady sold me the wrong color (beige), so now I have to go back and get the Dore. I do enjoy this product! UPDATE: They changed the color scheme of Dore! The old Dore had all the beautiful peaches, now they have something different in its place. But I went to Sephora and they have the Meteorites and I found Dore again, this time with more pinks and some peaches... so I bought it instead. So beware, check the tin before buying to make sure it matches what you tried in the store. With the right color hues/scheme for your skin the more you will fall in love with product. The shimmery really isn't too bad. I tried Bobbi Brown's shimmery bricks and they do not rival Guerlain's Meteorites !!!!! GM's not as artificially shimmery as BB's and as the day goes on, the GM sets in, blends in, so you really get that porceline airbrushed look and the shimmery, though very little of it, is less noticeable. Furthermore, it really doesn't rub off, its hard to rub this stuff off so the powder sets practically all day and doesn't crease and move off the face. I'm changing it from 4 to 5 lippies when you find the right shade for you!
I must admit, this is one of my love-hate products. A lot of Bobbi Brown products are that way with me. There's some of her products I love and other products it just missing that je ne sais quoi factor. I bought this product because after 2 attempts of professional eyebrow shaping and one personal attempt, I've lost all the baby fine hairs on my brows making them look wiry and sparse. So this product definitely adds some volume to sparse looking brows. However, I must agree with other MA reviewers this product needs some help. CONS: 1) I like having a full brow look to my face and once in a while I fool myself into believing I can go for something slimmer... mostly because the peeps doing your brows like to yank as much brow hair off sometimes. This product can easily make full brows look messy. So you do have to be careful about the amount applied, which can be hard to control. Yes, whipping the wand inside the opening of the container or blotting it with tissue does help to prevent adding too much product. But still, when applied properly it still can be fuzzy messy Groucho Marx brow. 2) It can sometimes be drying to the brows too. PROS: 1) Coloring can be nice. I am African American with black brows and lashes and black hair... but the ends are no longer jet black, they've been turning a freaky red almost strawberry blond (I've tried cutting the ends and that works, but the like 3 weeks later its red again, slowly travelling up the roots which is mostly jet black, it can be pretty, but it can also be annoying cause people think I've colored my hair when I don't but it does help to camoflauge any grey strands of hair). So the Mahogany (which I think is their darkest shade in this) goes well in lightening up my brows to compliment my naturally freakish hair coloring. The colors seem to look really natural... earthy. However, its probably not a product for the jettest of black hair coloring. HELP FOR SOME OF THE ISSUES: So as I was growing out my latest attempt of professional brow shaping, I started to play around with this product. I didn't use it when my brows were thin because it wasn't easy to apply. So I've been using it since my brows are in stages of growing out. What I do is apply a light coat of this stuff to the brows, making sure a lot doesn't touch the skin. Then I take a clear brow wax such as found in Clarins Eyebrow Kit, and apply over the Bobbi Brown product. This helps to shape the brows, fill in the sparse areas, and to create a shape instead of the fuzzy Groucho Marx look without the wax. I love this method! It gives a nice illusion of full, tamed, shaped brows.
I was in Sephora looking for a miracle substitute for my Julie Hewett foundation because the store that sells this foundation locally closed shop. The sales associate helped me to go through some of the foundations in Sephora. At her last attempt and discovering I have really unique coloring, she went to Cover FX. She told me its a line intended for those with scars, and when she said that I cringed because a lot of those lines are thick and heavy and the foundation comes off also. She then also mentioned its a line made for stage actors. What was chosen was B25 (I'm a very deep/deep ochre in Shiseido's Hydro compact (O 80 and O 100); Anouk or Zazu in Julie Hewett; Iman's Clay 3). Well.... I do like this line of foundation. Its water based, so I really haven't developed any severe reactions to this. It does stay on... till about the nth hour and then it starts to dissolve and get on paper and clothes, etc. It doesn't have the staypower like my favorite Julie Hewett foundation. Coverage is buildable from light to a full medium. I do like that its a dewey finish. But like others have stated, it can be a little too shiny by mid-day. The feel is uber light. It has a very nice "satiny" or natural finish so no one can really tell you have makeup on unless you have the wrong shade. It goes on and wears like second skin. No weird caking, etc... it just looks like your real skin. Cons, it kinda shows pores. But compare to a lot of the foundations out there, this is the most natural looking one despite it showing a little "pore action" Its minor, but its one of the things I've noticed. Applying this foundation I would recommend using a sponge/brush or fingers. A little goes somewhat a long way but you kinda have to work fast in blending as its texture changes and it becomes harder to blend. The packaging is small but very practical/utilitarian with very little mess. I give this product 4+/5 lippies. I still love my Julie Hewett foundation though. I think this is very comparable to Julie Hewett except that its staypower isn't as great and the Julie Hewett foundation smoothes out the skin so you really don't see any pores. And the Anouk color in Julie Hewett foundation matches my skin and undertones to a T. This one from Cover FX happens to be slightly red (I have a real gold uundertone). I haven't taken pictures in this product so I don't know how natural it is. Overall its better than most of the expensive department store foundations out there.
I was in Ulta the other day, looking around, as if I knew I would find my next best foundation. Really, I've been through their isles before and really haven't found anything too compelling. Well I took a closer look at things this time around and walked passed the IMAN section. Her colors are always so natural looking, but in the past I haven't had the best of luck with some of her foundation. Usually because it wears weird (streaks, separates, etc.). But her shades always have done well on me whether I'm in the Sand 2 or 3 or if I'm in the Clay 3. Well I noticed she had a new type of foundation which came in a tube and was enriched with minerals... hmm... I thought to myself. Well I pulled out Clay 3, apparently I keep getting darker as I used to be her Sand 2 or 3. I applied this foundation. At first it seems thick and to be the wrongest of colors.... but the colors morph into your skin tone. Its weird! Its like a colormatch technology. I watches it as it went from an olive coloring to something more golden on my skin in seconds. The best part is that this foundation looks so natural AND it covered most of my imperfections so it gave me a really even look. You couldn't tell I had makeup on, nor did the lady working there knew I had the makeup on. I'm giving this a 4 for now. Because I don't know how well it wears, it goes on way better than her other foundations (stick and creme)... but it may come off as easily (but this one seems budge proof out of her line). So I have to test it in the hot weather... maybe tomorrow. The other reservation on this product is that I don't know how well it will treat my skin. It is infused with ingredients that sound good i.e. Vitamin E, Acai, Magnolia, and Cottonseed. However, nothing beats the foundation of Julie Hewett in providing sunscreen, wearability, and healing properties. So for those who wear Shiseido's Deep Ochre or Very Deep Ochre IMAN's Clay 3 is a very compatible color. I wear Julie Hewett's Zazu right now and Anouk in the winter. Lancome's Dual Finish in Sable IV or is it III? The price on this product is unbeatable. $15 and it seems to last for a long time as a little goes a long way with this. This item is comparable to department store brands on the order of $45. So I think this is a steal. I don't plan to wear it often as it's a full coverage, so I only plan to wear it for concerts or eventually a hot date... eventually.
