Very beautiful, hot barbie pink. Its opaque in two coats and looks like a high shine plastic when finished. i ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT and its now one of my favorite hot pinks.
Firstly, this tin packaging is extremly annoying, i literally had to put on rubber gloves to open it. I dont even close it all the way because i'm afraid it will get stuck. Other than the packaging the product is excellent. This color is a bit sheer on me considering its light pick and i'm pretty brown (nc45). The color shows up as a light powdery pink which isnt everyday wear for but goes perfectly with certain looks. I alos love the smooth silkly texture, its as if your putting on a second skin.
Absolutely love this blush, it makes me look like a doll!! I am nc45 and the bright pink blends naturally and brightens my face. FYI this is my first nars blush and i cant wait to pruchase more shades.

This eye cream recieved 4 and not 5 lippies because of the consistency. The eye cream has a very gluey consistency but is extremely moisterizing. I am actually skeptical about wearing this under my makeup because its way to thick and creamy, i prefer to wear it at night right before bed after i wash my face.
Very good sun protection. My only issue is the texture, its like elmers glue. It makes me feel like i am wearing a sunscreen mask. It also causes me to get small whiteheads. It just to thick, it literally feels like its clogging my pores. I prefer a sunscreen with a mousse like consistency. I used to use Aveeno positievly radiant face lotion with the spf already in, i replaced this with cliniques dramactically different face lotion which does not come with any spf. The lotion is great by itself but when i add that gluely sunscreen over it, it turns my face into a clogged pored greaseball. ewwww.
Pressed Powders -Urban Decay - De-Slick Mattifying Powder

I love this product!!! I dont use it a a finishing powder, i prefer to use it as a touch up powder throughout the day. It completely erases any shine I have, and it doesnt leave a ashy veil over my skin. It works well with the puff it comes with but i prefer to use a retactable kabuki which doesnt rub off your original make up application. Overall very good product, does exactly what the description describes which i find very rare with alot of beauty products. Love the packaging, lasts very long.
I lovethis nail file, it isnt has harsh on the nails as a traditional file. Its also much prettier. The only con about the crystal nail file is the unflexible thickness of the file. It makes it very difficult to file the sides of my nails, near the cuticle, a traditional file works better for this considering its more flexible and gets into all the little crevices.
Eye Shadow -TheBalm - Shady Lady Eyeshadow Palette

I love this palette its my go to eye shadows. I really like darker shadows and this palette is perfect, the brown is my favorite color, its rich and chocolately and goes on smoothly. The only con i would say this product has is the packaging. Its big and bulky, this product would of gotten a five if the packaging were more sleek like the nars packages. Besides the packaging the shadows are high quality and definitely worth buying. Do they make singles????
I would clasify this mascara as an everyday mascara. I am always purchasing mascaras to see the different effects of each and the end result in the same. For instance, lancome mascara gives me the same results as diorshow the application is just different. Lancome takes me longer to apply to get that full thick jet black look whereas diorshow takes me about 3-4 swipes. Also the wand of lancome is much smaller ensuring i get everylast lash especially on the bottom lashes. Dior show's wand is way to big for my bottom lashes, i end up with the product all over my under eye area. Just to wrap things up this in definitely a mascara worth purchasing and having in your collection.
