Great brow kit at a ridiculous price. I bought this on a whim and i am happy i did. It has a great hihlighter that can be used for a natural look. \the medium o2 orks well with my brows adn gives it a natural and not drawn in look like most brow pencils do. |this is my hg for my eyebrows for sure
Format kind of creeps up on you. It looks unimpressive in the pan but delivers a wonderful glowy natural look when applied. It takes a minute to reallu show up so apply lightly. I have always gotten complimenys when I use format. I wear it when I'm going for that all natural look. I am nc50
I love this blush! It is a wonderful, rich deep red but with enough shimmer to give pizzaz! It really warms up my nc50 skin and gives a wonderful vibrant lift to my face. Definitely try!
Finally decided to try this. First off, i love this just by itself! I'm an NC50 and when applied all over my eyelid it has a fresh natural look It made my eyeshadow pop but gave just a few extra hours of wear.SO i'd say it wold work for a 6-8 hr event which is pretty fine for me!

This smells so fantastic....it has a soft yummy smell to it. Lasts through the entire day as i put it on around 8 and could still take a pleasant whiff at 4 in the afternoon! I've gotten quite a few compliments commenting on how good i smell when i wear this!

This is a great warm red, I'm an NC 50and it makes my complexion pop! This is a keeper for sure
I decided to give bare minerals a try during an acne episode as I thought it would be gentle on my skin. I was terribly disappointed as it has poor coverage and even the deep did nothing for my NC50 skin. It was ashy and very unnatural looking. This is for people who require the bare minimum coverage. Plus teh twist containers were easy to spill and very messy to use.
Great mask for deep cleaning your skin.! I wear makeup during the week (just love makeup) but I have had some serious acne issues in the past. So as a preventative method I use this once a week and I can feel it sucking out the debris that sometiems can be left behind even if you use a makeup remover. Great staple to have plus it scheap and lasts forever
Great, simple, uncomplicated brow and pencil duo. I have had this for ages and it still works great. Teh dark brown is a perfect match for my eyebrows nd does a good job of filling in some sparse areas. It also gives my eyebrows a terrific set. Th epencil edge works just as great as my Mac eyebrow pencil which i bought for loads more. Great staple product to own.
Another winner from MAc....I love this blush and I have a hard time choosing between this and Mac's Sweet as Cocoa on any given day!!!!! Love joy gives just the right hint of "rosy cheeks" for my NC50 skin without being too red or clownish! It gives a slight hint of sheer colour which is buildable and can be worn with any makeup colour combination . It also has great staying power. Can't go wrong with lovejoy!
Eye Shadow -Revlon - Colorstay 12-Hour Eyeshadow Quad "Coffee Bean"

This product is pure rubbish to me. Chalky, very little pigment....very disappointed!
Bought this blush after readingg the reviews on MUA and it is worth the hype. Great bronze with slight pink undertones for women of color (I am an nc50 and this blush highlights and contours giving my face a beautiful lift! I keep reaching for this blush everyday no matter the occasionn or eyeshadow because it is so versatile. Lovejoy has nothing on this blush!
Great Quad from Maybelline This came really cheap so I am very happy about this eyeshadow quad. The colours are highly pigmented and they take out the guesswork from my eyeshadow application. I LOVE the colours separately as well! There isn't much fallout at all but it is soft in the pan so i have found finger application works best. Has pretty ok staying power. Would repurchase for sure.
Stick -Black Opal - True Color Creme Stick Foundation

This product is very good and gives an amazing glow to the skin. It is heavy and is not for oily skin. You will have an oil spill on your face in two hours tops. Also it transfers like crazy with just one touch so everything, tops, pants, office paper gets smudged with makeup. Good for a short run during the evening when the sun isnt beating dowon and melting the makeup away.
Powder -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Deep

This product is a great buy from MAC! Its pricey but worth it in my opinion. It gives very good coverage and has a very natural finish (I'm NC45). I have a few acne marks from a horrible acne episode and I find it easy to swipe this on when i'm heading to work or the cinema and it gives pretty long lasting coverage. It's great for touchups during the day as it does not cake and has the most natural looking finish. Its not quite a shimmer but gives a subtle glow to the skin. Will definitely repurchase. Not sure when though as its a lot of product and will last quite a while even with daily use. The packaging is solid and easy to toss into my purse and carry around.
