The perfect contour blush for fair skin. Blush is probably my favorite make-up (weird), and I'm quite picky about the color and texture of blushes I use. I love to contour, but most bronzers look too dark/orange on my fair skin (NC25), even though I'm quite yellow-y. The MA helped me pick this out as an alternative to matte bronzer and it's PERFECT. The color works wonders both as a contour and a blush (I don't use it as both at the same time) and it looks so NATURAL. Texture is perfectly matte, and silky, silky smooth. Packaging is flat and simple.

I love the tiny brush applicator, as opposed to the felt tip applicators that many liquid liners have.It allows me to get the liner right up tight next to my lashes and also makes it really easy to flick a cat eye. It also allows for varying thicknesses of lines. The color is slightly lighter than a true inky black, in my opinion. That could just be because it is a matte finish, not glossy. It's not grey, but it's not a deep deep black. There is also a very tiny amount of fine glitter, but I think that it is only visible when I'm looking at the color swatched on my hand in the sunlight. As fas as staying power goes, it is as good as it gets without being waterproof. After marking my hand, I took a finger and rubbed hard across it 4 or 5 times and it smudged only the tiniest bit. Obviously, that's more wear and tear than it is going to get on your eyes. It removes easily with water.
