This is a light to medium coverage foundation. It feels creamy on my skin and it blends really well. I have very dry skin and this foundation did not dry out my skin. I set the foundation with a light translucent powder and it stayed on all day. I wished that they come in darker shades for my skin tone.
Skincare - Body -Ahava - Dermud Intensive nourishing hand cream
jiasweetheart 11/27/2012 12:15:00 PM
This is a great hand cream for dry skin. It moisturize my hands really well and it does not make me feel grease. The only thing I don’t like about this hand cream is the smell. It smells like the cheap soap you get at a 2 star motel! I also did not like the material the tube/bottle was made of. It cracked midway through. I think the last half of the hand cream dried out a little in the bottle. I would not buy this hand cream again. I’m really loving my L’Occitane crème mains hand cream in Rose Petals.
This eyeliner is so creamy. I love using it on my waterline. It last all day on my eyes. The liner glides on effortlessly and blends beautifully. I love this color with gold/brown eyeshadow.
I really like this blush. Everyong on MUA is either love it or hate it and I'm in the first group. I have NC30 skin tone and this blush looks perfect on me. I use a very light hand to apply this blush and this blush is buildable for night time looks. I find my self using this blush more often than any of my other NARS blushes.
I bought this brush from the HauteLook Rock & Republic sale. I bought the brush set and the blush brush came in the set. This brush is super soft and it picks up the color very nicely. The hair is densely packed. This brush is very high quality and they are light weight. The brush handle are made of polished chrome and it feels very comfortable in my hand. I'm waiting for the next HauteLook Rock & Republic sale so I can buy a back up.
Product Description: This non-oily, non-comedogenic matte concealer blends perfectly into the skin. Provides medium coverage with a matte finish. Neutralizes and camouflages blemishes, capillaries, and sunspots. Apply alone or over foundation. I bought the concealer in shade D and E. Right now my skin is tan so I use E. I would say the shade is close to NC35. The coverage is medium. I use it under my eyes and spot conceal in other areas of my face. I like for spot conceal but not for my eyes. The concealer does not have a very long stay power. It disappears after 3 to 4 hours and I have to reapply. I will be staying with my MAC Studio Finish concealer.
Blush -MAC - Sheertone Shimmer blush in Peachykeen
jiasweetheart 9/8/2011 7:13:00 PM
This is my all time favorite blush. It’s a very pretty pinky coral color with just the right mix of coral and bronze. I think of it as a more coral version of Nars Orgasm. For a sheer blush its very pigmented and very buildable. It has a light shimmer to but no glitter so those with enlarged pores need not worry it doesn't highlight them at all. I reach for this blush everyday. They color is very nice on my NC35 skin and I love how it gives me a nice summer glow.
This is a very soft brush for powder, liquid foundation and cream blush. I use it for my cream blushes and it blends out the color really well. It gives my cheek soft glowing finish without leaving any streaks. I find it much better than using my hand to blend out the cream blushes. The brush is only $3 and the quality is really nice.
Eyeliner -Jordana - Easyliner for Eyes (Retractable Pencil)
jiasweetheart 9/8/2011 6:43:00 PM
This is a great affordable eye liner (only $1.99). The liner is very black and creamy. It glide on very easy and I find that if I use it with a eye primer it will last all day. It also show up really well on my waterline. I used this eye liner for a smudged look and it turned out great. It was easy to smudge with a rubber tip. I will repurchase this liner again.
I owned the Urban Decay Naked Palette for a while now and I still love it. I love all of the colors in this palette and it’s great that there are shimmer and matt colors in the palette. The shadows are very pigmented and easy to blend. You can use a light hand to get a sheer look or build up the color to get the look you want. I love traveling with this palette because I can create many looks with it. I know it was very hard to find this palette in the stores for a while. If you can get your hands on it you should buy it. You will not regret it.
I bought this color after reading all of the reviews on MUA and beauty blogs. I bought it on eBay for only $5 including shipping. It was the best nail polish buy ever! This is the perfect summer color on my toes. They lasted more than 3 weeks with base and top coat. I want to paint my toes with this color all the time. The color matches the Tiffnay box perfectly and it is very flatering. I get complements all the time.
28 Neutral Palette is a great palette for everyday look or for work. You get a lot of matt color borwn colors in this palette that will look great for all skin tones. There is about 6 or 7 shimmer colours in the palette but the rest are all matt. Some of the eyeshadows have great color payoff and some are very chalky. This was one of the first palettes I bought when I first got into makeup. Now that I tired more products and brands I don’t really recommand this palette.
The 88 Metal Mania Palette is super vestal. You can create all kinds of looks with this palette. I find the color in this palette is much more usable than the 88 Shimmer Palette. You get a nice range of natural colors for everyday look and dark colors for smoky eyes. The eye shadows are all very pigmented and goes on smoothly.
I really like my Milani Baked Blush in Rose D'Oro. The pink peachy color looks great on my NC35 skin. It gives me a pretty summer glow. The pigmentation is great and you only need to use a light hand get the color to show. I found out this blush is a perfect dupe for MAC Stero Rose. MAC Stero Rose was a limited edition cult product that’s super hard to find. This is a much cheaper and accessible alternative.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Greed
jiasweetheart 9/8/2011 5:34:00 PM
I LOVE UDPP! I have it in 3 different colors Eden, Greed, and Original. The Original and Eden is in the bottle package and Greed in squeeze tube. The squeeze tube is much better to get all the product out than the bottle packaging. Greed is a coolish yellowish gold color primer. I was a little disappointed with the color pay off. When I swatched Greed on my hands at the store there was a noticeable glow. The color does not show up very much on my lids. The primer does make eye shadow last a very long time and help shimmery shadows to shimmer even more.
