Iíve never really used bronzers because Iím scared to look like a orange oompa loompa lol. I did some research on this blush and I read a lot of reviews about girls being an NC30 (like me) and loving the fuck out of this blush. It is BEAUTIFUL! Itís a peach with a little bit of a bronze glow. It makes my skin look so warm and there is a shimmer but itís not an overpowering shimmer like NARSí Super Orgasm. I might like this blush a little more than Orgasm right now. I can definitely see myself re-purchasing this in the future.
FAVORITE PALETTE EVER. I had to wait 4 months to get this palette. 4 MONTHS! Do you realize how long that is to wait for a makeup palette? I adore this palette. Itís filled with great Urban Decay shadows that are pigmented, silky & extremely long lasting. Urban Decay is by far my favorite brand when it comes to primers & eyeshadows. I have the palette that includes the shadow brush instead of the duo sided eyeliners. It has an array of shadows that go from light to dark. Itís perfect for creating a natural eye for work, school, maybe a lunch date. It also includes shadows that can give you a dramatic look for any occasion. It includes my favorite highlighter (virgin) and my favorite base shadow (naked). Iím a huge fan of ALL the shadows. This palette is in very high demand, even though itís been out for about a year. Iíve seen it in stock at Sephora ONE time. If I were one of you girls who donít already have this palette, I would order this palette as soon as can!
Originally I was looking for the Petals & Peacocks lipstick from the Liberty of London collection but it was a limited edition lipstick and Girl About Town was the closest thing to it. Itís a gorgeous, fabulous fuchsia amplified creme finish. I wear it with MACís Magenta lipliner. It gives a great pop of color whenever I donít feel like wearing a classic red or simple nude.
This is my HG red lipstick. Itís a beautiful blue based red that isnít too bloody and isnít orange. Itís a satin finish so itís not completely matte and there isnít a lot of gloss to it. Itís long lasting (even thought I would recommend using a liner with it) lipstick that I would definitely pick over Russian Red or Ruby Woo.
Primer/ Corrector -Urban Decay - Dew Me Moisturizing Makeup Setting Spray

Originally I was looking for their All Nighter spray but it was out of stock at Sephora so I opted for my second choice. This spray is amazing. It sets my make up, it lasts for hours on end and it really does moisturize. Sometimes when I do my foundation, I feel a little caked but after I spritz myself, it sets everything and I no longer feel/look caked. It is a bit on the pricier end and I donít know if Iím willing to spend another $29 on it but it definitely kicks ELFís Setting Spray in the ass with a steel boot. Iíve been using it for the last couple of months. I canít remember how long, but itís been at least 5+ months and Iím not even halfway through the bottle. One thing I didnít like about it is that after a while, the nozzle gets stuck when you spray. You have to physically lift the nozzle up which isnít a big deal. I donít know if this happened to everyone but it did happen to me.
Planks a lot is a deep lavender, almost lilac cream colored polish. Itís not as opaque as my other OPI polishes but with two coats, itís beautiful. Itís has blue-ish grey undertones and it reminds me of ube ice cream!
This polish is a VERY deep red, very opaque polish that literally looks like blood. I was a bit turned off by how much it looks like blood. The formula is great, just like other OPI polishes. Itís not streaky and w/ a top coat, itíll last for days on end.
This powder foundation isnít a lightweight foundation. It gives you some serious coverage. I have really bad skin and this baby works perfectly for me. It doesnít specifically break me out because I do go through phases where my skin is awesome and then my skin is horrible. But for some people, it does break them out. I break out even when I donít wear make up ); I like it because itís fast and I donít need a ton of it to give the coverage I want. I use a powder brush to apply it and honestly, it lasts all day when I prime and/or set my face. Itís smooth, and blends wonderfully. One thing I really liked about it is that when I use it, I donít need a concealer to hide blemishes/scars. Itís literally a one step process. I hate the price though. After tax, itís nearly $30 and thatís probably the only thing keeping me from wanting to repurchase it once Iím done with this compact. This product isnít for everyone, I feel like you either love it or you canít wait to exchange/return it. I really do like this foundation but I wouldnít use it everyday. Just for special occasions or if Iím running really late and I need to hide some really bad blemishes.
