TO be honest before going out and buying these tweezers I had a very high expectation because of all the great reviews. I have to say these tweezers are the best Iíve tried, but they arenít like the best thing in the world.
Nars madly has been on my shopping list for a very long time and yesterday I finally gave in and purchased it. Before I buy any cosmetic products, especially high-end I would always read reviews and look at swatches online. When I found out that xteeener owns this blush I knew that I got to have it because anything she likes I have to own. Nars describes this blush to be a seashell pink, but to me I think itís more of a brownish blush with a hint of pink. I think this product acts like a bronzer and a blush in one and itís perfect for the summer time. I have to be honest I do love the colour and application, but this blush is definitely more powdery than any other Nars blush I own, therefore Iím giving it a three out of five.
Rimmel's Moisture Renew lipstick in Coral Queen , is a bright red orengy- coral colour. My skin ton right now is somewhere between a Mac NC 20 to 25, that has a bit of yellow and pink undertone mixed. I think this colour looks great on my skin tone. I also know that in the summer time i will be a bit tanner and i still think this colour would look great. Actually, regardless of your skin tone this lipstick would look great on everybody. I have to say that this lipstick does not look as pigmented in the tube when i swatched on the back of my hands, but it is very buildable. I have not yet tested the lasting power so i can not give my thoughts on it. I really recommend this lipstick to people who are interested in trying a brighter colour but is afraid to go for it. However i will not be buying it again just because i have tons of other lipsticks waiting for me to use up.
Concealers -Revlon - Age Defying Moisturizing Concealer (New) [DISCONTINUED]

I love and I hate this product at the same time. First, letís talk about the packaging of this concealer. It comes in a squeeze tube which is awesome because you donít need to worry about bacteria. I have the shade in light (which is good for a mac NC 20 to 25); it consists of a hint of yellow which is great for blemishes and redness around the nose. Iíd say this concealer has a medium to full coverage. If you have nice skin you can totally wear this alone and top it off with a powder. The down side of this product is that it irritates my sensitive skin, I would feel itchy after five minutes of applying it on places that needs extra coverage, and so the next day I would wake up with new blemishes on my face. At first I hate to admit that it was this product that broke me out because it has great coverage and applies smoothly, but I notice that it doesnít make me breakout underneath my eye and so now I just use it to cover my dark circles. If you donít have sensitive skin and you donít break out easily then I would totally recommend it. Ps. the only reason i gave it 3 out of 5, it's because it broke me out.

This is a good gel liner. This gel liner glids on really well and is very black. But, the only thing i don't like about this is that it's not as waterproof as i want it to be. I have also treid the bobbi brown one and i have to say i would stick to bobbi brown.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow

I love these eye color tattoos. They are totally worth the money. They are creamy, easy to blend, very pigmentedy and stays on all day without creasing. The texture of this protduct is between a Mac paint pot and the MUFE aqua cream. I will definitely repurchase and recommend it to everyone.
This is by far my favorite contouring powder becuase it has a grey undertone. It works so well on my NC 20 to 25 skin tone . I love it! BTW, Im already on my second one.
I think this blush looks really pretty in the pan and it's pretty to swatch. But on my skin tone it just doesn't work that well. Also, when applying this blush, you should definitely apply it with a lighter hand or else the glitter will make the face look a little muddy.
I think this blush can complement a ton of skin tons. Also this blush is more of a winter blush. It gives a, You just came in from the cold look. The consistency is very smooth and pigmented. The color is very unique. Even though it's a little pricy, but you do get what you pay for, therefore i do recommend this product.
If your are the tyPe of person that wants natural looking lashes, then this is the product for you. Personaly I think this is a great mascara for layering, and I like to use maybelline the falsies to layer with. Overall it is a good product, i love how it separates each and every single one of my lashes and still gives my lashes some length and volume. Therefore I do recommend this product.
