Love it, it gives me that natural glow and is so easy to blend. It lasts throughout the day too!
Pressed Powders -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Medium Dark

I love this powder! I use it everyday after my morning skin routine to just brush it on my face and even out my skin tone while taming my oiliness. Be sure to moisturize well before putting this on or you may look a little cakey, but I was so surprised that a powder could look so natural! I love to just pop this in my bag for future touch ups and I can't go wrong with it.
This is the perfect coral lipstick! I wear this when I'm perhaps going to a beach party because it feels so summer-y. I love paring this with Fulfilled plushglass to give me that voluptuous shine.
I love this lipstick! When I first saw it, I thought it was going to be super dramatic and be too bright, but since it's a lustre it's great for everyday and I fell in love. It's not completely sheer and it does make a statement but as soon as I put it on it brightens my face and the color is so cheery. On the MAC website it describes it as "a blue-toned emotive pink" It doesn't have too much of a blue undertone, but I do notice my teeth look slightly whiter when I wear it. This is without question one of my favorite pink lipsticks!
I love this plushglass! It's a really pretty pinky coral and looks well alone for a subtle look or over a coral lipstick for full glossy lips. Compared to other lip glosses I have owned, the price is not bad at all. I've read a lot of reviews saying that the plumping effect was a turn off, but for me it just feels cool on my lips and makes them look slightly plumper, so I don't really mind it. I love to pair this with Ravishing lipstick for that nice coral lip.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Sin
mangogo234 6/3/2011 6:21:00 PM
This is my first UD primer potion, Sin is a sheer champagne color that can be used as an everyday wash of color, or a base for other eyeshadows. I have to say that this is a very good primer but sometimes I feel the shimmer can get all over the place and make my makeup look sloppy. Oh, and FYI, DO NOT GET THE BOTTLE FORM! GET THE SQUEEZABLE TUBE FORM! In the bottle form it's hard to get every last bit of product, so you have to cut it open and scoop the rest out. Overall, great primer but next time, I think i'll just get the original formula.
Greek Holiday is a nice shimmery/nude color. I prefer to wear this everyday as a simple wash of color over my lips, over my Viva Glam Gaga 2 lipstick, or pack it on a little more for a bolder look. One thing I don't like is that sometimes the glitter can get out of control and wander outside my lips, also as you may know. The NARS lip glosses have no particular scent to them, however as time passes by they get this....band-aid/rancid smell,it's not over powering enough for me to throw away,but you can definetley smell it in the tube. Overall, I love the color and the quality, but I hate the price.
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Sweet Mint

I love this lipbalm! The packaging is really cute and the lip balm itself is very moisturizing. Sweet mint smells EXACTLY like mint chocolate chip ice cream. It also gives my lips a really fresh feeling. Overall, I would definetley buy this again.
I love this lipstick! My friend go it for my birthday and it's absolutely gorgeous, I love how the color is so amplified and creamy. I would recommend dabbing some clear gloss or the matching lipglass over it so it won't look so matte. I really like the color, it's just that my lips are really dry so sometimes the lipstick gets into the cracks on my lips and doesn't look nice. Oh well, I guess I just have to exfoliate and put on lip balm before. Other than that B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L COLOR! (Mind the fact that if your skin is darker you may need a darker lip liner under the lipstick so it won't be such a bold contrast).
Makeup Brushes -Laura Mercier - Finishing Brush aka Skunk
mangogo234 3/28/2011 10:24:00 PM
This brush is a great brush because it can be used for so many things. It's a stippling brush, so I sometimes use it to apply my tinted moisturizer and it gives me a really nice dewy/airbrushed look. I also use it to apply/buff out my blush and bronzer. One thing I'm sort of scared of is the brush hairs becoming coarse and falling out, any of you guys have tips on how to correctly clean your brushes? Right now I'm using just regular hair conditioner to clean my brushes.
This bronzer is amazing! I have light/medium skin and this just gives me the most gorgeous just came from the beach glow. It doesn't look fake or orange at all, and it has the tiniest bit of shimmer to it. Make sure you blend it down to your neck so your face won't contrast your neck so much (but if you put the right amount it won't).
I LOOOVE THIS CONCEALER! My mom got it for me for my birthday (I'm in Warm Ivory) and I absolutely love it! It's creamy and easy to blend, first the lady at the counter put it on me and my skin looked flawless, I just kept on staring at the mirror because my imperfections disappeared! So, next day I tried to do it again and it was really easy to use and I still had that same flawless affect. It's also purse friendly, so I can just pop it in my bag and go out. The only thing I don't really like about it is I'm scared it might melt or since it's in a tube it'll break off (this has happened to me and my lipsticks it is not fun). But overall AWESOME CONCEALER!
This perfume is VERY and I mean VERY sweet on my skin, but it may smell different on yours. It smells mostly like cotton candy and maybe a hint of vanilla, it's really girly and if I want to wear this I sort of have to be 'in the mood" and I also have to be careful not to put too much on or I end up smelling like a cotton candy factory. I like it..buuut I wouldn't buy it again because I like more citrusy/fresh scents and I wear this once a blue moon.
I don't like this product, because it does not work for me! If I'm lucky it'll get one blackhead off my nose, but since I don't know any other brands of nose strips, I guess I'm stuck with using these.
Lip Treatments -The Body Shop - Coconut Lip Butter
mangogo234 1/8/2011 5:03:00 PM
I got this back in September because I was in The Body Shop to buy the Coconut Body Butter for my friend's bday, I didn't have enough money to buy another body butter so I just got the Coconut Lip Butter. When, I got home I ran my finger over the balm and it felt really smooth and creamy. But when I applied it on my lips, my lips turned white and looked really strange. I kept on using it and kept on WANTING to like it, but to tell the truth I would not have bought this again. (But btw the body butter is really good and smells AMAZING :)
