I absolutely LOVE this brushes! Not only are they super affordable compared to MAC brushes, they apply makeup flawlessly. The buffing brush is by far my most used brush. It applies foundation so smoothly and makes my skin look flawless. The contour blush is works great for blush or contouring. All the brushes are so soft and I have yet to experience any shedding with them. I would definitely recommend that you have these in your makeup stash.
This is one of my favorite eyeshadows ever. I have a whole bunch of eyeshadows from MAC and this is without a doubt the one that I reach for most often. I use a fluffy brush to apply a very sheer layer over my eyelids daily and it does the most amazing job of making my eyes pop and look bright. If i'm going out at night I apply this more heavily with a dark brown in my crease and it looks so glamorous and beautiful. Definitely a must have for every brown/olive skinned girl.
OMG this product is AMAZING. I use a blush brush to apply this onto the apples of my cheek. It looks extremely bright in the pan but a small amount of this on my cheeks has the most amazing ethereal glow. I'm an NC42 and this blush is without a doubt the most natural glowy blush I've ever used. It gives a dewy finish to the cheeks and the color is very build able. Use a thin layer for a sheer glow or build it up for a more intense pinky color. Lasting power could be better but I am definitely impressed.
Mascara -Make Up For Ever - Smoky Lash Extra Black Mascara

HG mascara right here. Definitely worth all the hype. Gives me amazingly full voluminous lashes. Just one coat of this transforms my entire face. It makes my eyes pop and look so awake and pretty. It can get clumpy if you apply too much of it so definitely not the best mascara to layer. This mascara is definitely better than any other mascara I've ever tried in terms of giving length, volume and making my lashes look so full and black. LOVE IT!
Pressed Powders -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Medium Dark

This product is officially my HG powder. I am absolutely in love with it. It's perfect for my skin tone (NC42). Doesn't oxidize and turn darker or redder like most of my other powders. Sets foundations beautifully. On days that I'm in a rush I sweep this onto my bare skin and my skin looks glowy all day. I also use this on my eye lids to brighten them up and even out the tone. I will definitely be repurchasing this over and over again. It's so beautiful and looks great for setting foundation or on its own.
Tinted Moisturizer -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Enhancer SPF 20

Overall this was just an okay product for me. Probably due to the fact that I have pretty dry skin and I was hoping that this would be more moisturizing on my skin. The color selection is decent. I'm an NC 42 and the medium to olive was a perfect match on my skin. I also like the fact that it wasn't heavy or greasy on my skin. It felt light and natural. Blended into my skin really well and did even out my skin tone.I have pretty sensitive skin and this product didn't break me out at all. I didn't feel like it added any kind of glow and it definitely didn't do much in terms of coverage though. I would recommend this product to people who have pretty good skin already and just want something to even out their skin tone.
Best mascara ever. Great for lengthening and volumising lashes. Out of all the mascaras I've ever tried, this one has the best effect on my lashes. All I need is one coat of mascara and my lashes are instantly longer, blacker and thicker. It fills in your lashes if you have sparse lashes and doesn't clump or smudge at all. Definitely my HG mascara.
This is my FAVORITE blush by NARS. Looks great on my NC44 skin. Gives me that perfect rosy flush. Not as pigmented as some of their blushes which I like because I can build the color on depending on how I want it to look.On a day to day basis I use one or two layers and it's a barely there sheer flush of color. If I'm going out I can add a little more product and it looks a lot more pigmented and pinky. I sometimes layer this with Luster for a more golden baked look. Not shimmery or OTT at all. Perfect for day to day use. Goes on very smoothly and lasts at least 5-6 hours before I have to reapply. Definitely my HG blush.
This is definitely the best blush I've ever used before. It is amazingly blendable and goes on really smoothly. On my olive skin (NW35), this give s me a very golden glowy look.Perfect for days when you don't want alot of makeup or colour. You have to use a few layers of it before you see the peachy colour because it's not very pigmented but it's great for a subtle bronzy look. I use it as a bronzer sometimes or over another blush for that glowy natural finish.
This product is amazing! It smells so good and it makes my hair amazingly soft and silky. I use it everytime I straighten or blowdry my hair and it leaves my hair feeling really smooth plus it eliminates any kind of frizz. I've also used it before curling my hair and it gave me the softest silkiest curls ever. Expensive but definitely worth the price.
Originally when I bought this product, I hated it. It showed up as nothing more than silver shimmer on my skin and was streaky and unnatural. I think the key to applying this product is to use very little of it and blend it in really well into the skin. It does have a lot of shimmer in it so I tend to only use it if I'm going out at night. I'd say save your money because there are tons of better highlighter out there like the NARS Albatross or Dior Amber Diamond.
This product is amazing! I swear by this product. It's the best cleanser I have ever used. It does an amazing job of brightening my skin and making it look radiant and so glowy. My skin feels so clean and smooth after every wash. I owe this product for completely transforming my skin and making it look so good. And it's dirt cheap!BEST PRODUCT EVER!
Styling Products -TRESemme - Volume and Lift Mousse

I really like this mousse. It leaves my hair bouncy and soft. It smells good and doesn't make my hair feel greasy or oily like alot of other products. I would definitely repurchase this because it makes my hair look really good.
I have pretty oily skin and I hate when my foundation looks like I have an extra mask on my skin. I love how this foundation blends seamlessly into my skin and evens out my skintone really well. My skin does get a bit oily through the day so I do need to blot every few hours. It helps to set the foundation with a powder. Overall a really awesome foundation.
I absolutely love this product. It really blends into my skin and doesn't make me look overly made up. I have really oily skin but this powder does a really great job of keeping my skin matte and glowy all day long. It feels so silky smooth and makes my skin look amazing.
