Lipstick -Revlon - Superlustrous Lipstick - Demure (LE)

Beautiful. It's like MAC Shy Girl's sheerer sister. It's formula is quite moisturizing. I'm a little scared to say it but I may like it more than Shy girl and Shy Girl happens to be one of my favorites...it's just more....Demure...the name for the lipstick is apt for it. (Reference: MAC NC42)
Great for muting out the lips without the intensity of myth. It is tough for me to pull it off on it's own because of my NC42 skin but it is a good product for muting. It is quite pretty. I could put on Strange potion lipglass on top or NARS Turkish Delight or chihuahua. Usually for muting out the lips I use either Creme d' Nude or Revlon's Nude Attitude. It all depends on what I have on hand.
A great fall matte. Depending on how dark you are this lipstick will look matte brown or matte nude. On me it looks like a dark nude. It's absolutely beautiful. I will try to wear it as much as I can this upcoming fall. So so nice. (Reference NC 42/BB #5 Honey)
Nice pinkish beige lipstick. Yes it is a glaze. Is it nice on tan skins? Depends on the state of your lips. They should not be chapped when using this and if your lips are pigmented it can be a bit tricky. But it's a nice soft color for my lips. I usually team it with MAC Stripdown.
This along with my Bobbi Brown "Brown" lipstick are my favorites!!!! It's a mauvish pink with a touch of brown and the look it gives my lips is a very usable neutral lippie. I love love love this lipstick. I literally don't have to try hard with this product.

This is a nice nude lipstick. When I want to do my NO MAKE UP make up look. This lipstick usually does the trick. Every. Time. It mutes out my lips but not in the MAC Myth way but it mutes it out, makes it more even.
Great Product. I bought this because I saw a picture of Salma Hayek wearing this lipstick. I absolutely wanted to try it because it looked like a nice nude/neutral for tan skins. And yes, that it is. It looks beautiful on. I recommend this for Tan and dark skintones.

This lipstick is a DUPE for Bobbi Brown "Brown" lipstick, a pinkish brown. It's a your lips but better look. Wear a light gloss and you have a beautiful pout. If you are tanned skin, give this a shot. The wear and feel is great. Highly recommended (Reference: NC42).
For a long time I thought this lipstick was a big no no. But one day, on a whim, I wanted to give this a shot because they highly recommended it for Tan skins. I tried it and I was AMAZED. It literally became my favorite lipstick. I look polished, and glam without trying too hard. It's kind of tough for me with lipsticks because with many of them it's a hit or miss due to my pigmented lips. Not only are they pigmented they are somewhat two toned (I say somewhat because it all depends on the angle and the amount of coverage per lipstick). I like teaming this with NARS Turkish Delight or chihuahua.
Concealers -Estee Lauder - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Concealer

This sets fairly quickly. Use a brush instead of your fingers and work fast because this sets. I really wish that there were more shades into the concealers. And you must set the concealer. I suggest Laura Mercier Secret Brightener in #2 if you are tanned skinned like me (NC42). I use shade Medium Deep.
For some weird reason these concealers run a bit darker. I usually use a NW30 for my concealer and this time I had to go off and grab an NW25. You only need 1/2 pump of this. I use it on my under eyes only. It does last all day but you need to be careful how much you use because although it's texture and consistency is quite liquid in nature it can cake up. You have been warned. I don't like the fact that it comes in a glass bottle. I'm always afraid I'll break it.
For those of you who don't have a lot of eyeshadows or are just starting out in makeup...this is the palette for you. For those of you who are experienced in makeup...this is for you. This palette is for everybody really. It covers all that is considered neutral. From Beiges, Browns, Golds, Grays,Burgundies...it's got it. You can do all kinds of looks for with this palette. At first, I thought they were TOO shimmery. Like I could not use it everyday...but then I figured "Hey...what the heck...might as well give it a try right?" I'm so glad I did. The shimmer is great. The staying power of these shadows is great. The combinations you could do are endless really. And for the price...you really are getting a bang for your buck.

This product is quite beautiful. I think this is a true peachy pink corally color. It's absolutely beautiful. Don't use it on the lips though. It can be quite drying.
Blush -Bobbi Brown - Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in Cabo Coral

This is a beautiful orange lip and cheek creme. Although I agree with many that it really shouldn't be used on the lips because it could be quite drying, the color is quite pretty. I highly recommend this for the summer or even the fall. It's quite pretty.
This is a bright pink blush. I asked it "Where the heck have you been pink o' mine?" It's absolutely gorgeous on tanned skins especially my NC42 skin or any skin color for that matter. It's the color MAC's Pink Swoon was supposed to be. Seriously.
