This duo is a champagne gold/dark steel grey. This is my favorite duo so far out of the ones I already have. The lighter color is not as pigmented as the dark side, but again I just love both shades together. It looks fabulous on my NC30-NC37 skintone but I think it would work well on all skin tones. This duo also makes a great smokey eye.
a frosty pale, white gold/ greenish-pewter with gold sparkle. This is least pigmented out of all my eyeshadow duos but still has pigmentation. The frosty pale, white gold color is the least pigmented out of all the shadows...it is kind of disappointing. I really like the greenish-peweter color though...it's pigmentation is good but not fantastic. Looks great on my NC30-NC37 but I think it would look great on tan skin as well.
This duo has a shimmery warm brown side and the other side is a dark brown with gold shimmer. I love the quality of this duo. Both shades are equally amazingly pigmented. This duo is great for everyday. I'm NC30-NC37 and I think it would look amazing on a lot of skin tones.
This shadow is a beautiful purple, greyish-taupe. The quality of this eyeshadow is absolutely amazing. Pigmented in just one swatch. Texture is as smooth as butter. The eyeshadow single is my first single from nars and I'm absolutely adoring this shadow. It just looks beautiful on the lid, crease, or whatever. It is a big favorite eyeshadow of mine right now. Highly Recommend!
I'm totally in love with using Benefit Bella Bamba blush. It has great pigmentation, great lasting power, and just all in all beautiful. I'm MAC NC30-NC37 and it looks absolutely beautiful on my skin. It's just a great pink color and gives off a great flush on the cheeks. I hate the packaging though...its so annoying and flimsy. I just feel I can rip off the top very easily. I prefer the previous packaging of the Benefit boxed blushes...I also preferred the size of the previous blushes as well but I bet a lot of people do too. I just love this blush!
I'm MAC NC30-37 and I think these shadows would look amazing on everybody. The eyeshadows are all beautiful shades, with some matte and some shimmer. When swatching the palette, I was astonished by the texture and pigmentation. The eyeshadows felt so buttery smooth and the pigmentation is absolutely amazing. None of eyeshadows lacked in pigmentation.

I finally gotten the famous Dior Amber Diamond and I'm so glad I did! I bought this in one of my Sephora Hauls. I was very hesitant to purchase this because of the price tag. At $44, I was definitely hesitant! But I purchased this at the Sephora Friends and Family sale, so seeing that I get 20% off I thought I might as well. Plus, there was a rumor going around that it was going to get discontinued so I jumped on the band wagon. The powder is so finely milled it's amazing! The pigmentation is absolutely amazing! It looks so beautiful on the skin I can hardly believe it. I just love the shimmer and shine it give off. I'm between NC30-NC37. It is not oily looking at all, just gives a beautiful glow. You can use the colors separately but I prefer using the colors swirled together for a beautiful highlight. This powder can also work as an eyeshadow...using the lighter colors as a great inner highlight. My pictures do not do this highlighter any justice. It was definitely worth the price tag!
