Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation
misoluckie 2/9/2013 4:03:00 AM
I read a lot of reviews before put my money on this foundation, because it's gonna be the most expensive foundation I'll ever purchased. And after all the raves that claim this's the HG foundation I decide to try this one. I've oily/combination and with right foundation my oily skin is controllable. But not this one, it look perfect at first 10-15 minutes after that awful things happened, it oxidized on me I look darker and my skin look super oily, definitely not in a dewy way. I'm so disappointed. If you have oily skin I suggest you think twice before trying this one. My good old Revlon Colorstay even works better than this one IMHO. If you only need a foundation for photo shooting days (in air-condition studio) this's still a good choice. Since I found it photograph well, I'm photogenic while wearing this foundation. But in daily life that I've to running around, working or even going to a party , it fail to do that for me.
I love this product the color is so pretty. I don't know how to explain how pretty it is. When I put it on for the first time I was like WOW! It's rosy color with very fine shimmer in it that give a natural grow from within effect. I have pale golden skin and this blush give me a healthy flush. It comes in perfect color & scent(dry rose scent) The reason I give it 4 lippies because I find it's hard to pick up the color from the pan with soft brush. The great way to pick up color is to use the scratchy brush that included in the palette.
This color give me a natural flush, it give exactly the same color as my cheek after working out. It doesn't look muddy or scary as it is in the pan. And it last all day. The only negative thing about this is the blush formular is very hard to pick up color from the pan you need apply lots of pressure to pick up the blush. Somehow that's maybe the good thing because you'll never pick up too much color or look like a clown.
This's the begining of my nars eyeshadow obsession. Since Nars eyeshadow is on the super pricey side, so I buy only unique shades from Nars. This eyeshadow on the pan is a combo of mahogany red and shimmery steal-greyish color which doesn't seem wearable at all. But I glad I give it a try because this eyeshadow does comliment my brown eyes very well. The red doesn't look that scary on the skin it turn out to be a mahogany brown with a tiny bit of red tint. And the steal blue side is a super cute color. the 2 colors complement each other really well. They are pigmented and long lasting and very wearable. I can use it everyday w/o looking too harsh. I really really love this product like never did to any other. And I'd definitely buy again if I can finish this pan because a little could go along the way. PS. I don't like Nars packaging at all. It turn dirty easily and very hard to clean.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

OMG! This primer deserve 5 lippies by all circumstance. It's a miracle. It's something every oily-lids-person have to try. I have very oily lids and everything I put on my eyes always crease after few hours. I heard about this UDPP years ago and I thought it's just another gimmicky product but I was so wrong. It really works. The first day I've try this product is the first day that my eyeshadow stay put all day until the evening. The packaging is cute too. Eventhough I found it's pricey, but I'm willing to pay for the quality I've got.

This's one of my favorite nude lipstick of all time. It give a natural nude color lip (my lips but better). It offer a moisturizing formulation that doesn't dry out my lip and it last long. I'm very please with this product and definitely would buy it again.
Blush -MAC - Mineralize Blush Duo - Earth to Earth (Grand Duos Coll.)
misoluckie 1/28/2011 8:52:00 AM
I don't think I'm gonna like it at first since the color looked weird in the pan. But after I've tried it I fell in love. It's a very versatile product that overall give warmness to my skin. The purple vein side can work well as eyeshadow and when swirl 2 side together it give a peachy bronzy color. If use only the bronze side it give a brozy glow effect, very pretty blush. Love it a lot! I'd definitely repurchase if I could since it's a limited edition.
Eye Shadow -NYX - Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencil - Cottage Cheese
misoluckie 1/21/2011 2:01:00 AM
This is a shimmery white pearl eye pencil that can be used alone on eyelids or used as eye primer. And I'm quite please with this product I love its pretty color, its creamy texture and its cheap price. But on me it doesn't last long since I've super oily lids so it does crease after 3-4 hours. That's is why I give it 4 lippies. And I wouldn't repurchase this because there're still much more products in the market to try and this pencil gonna last me quite a while.
I love this product and If i have to choose between MMSFs I'd choose this one. Because it gives a much more natural glow to my skin, it's easier to apply, it's 20x cheaper, it lasts longer, it's more versatile(for eyes, lips, cheeks) And what more do you expect from a 1$ cream blush?
Blush -E.L.F. - All Over Color Stick in Pink Lemonade
misoluckie 1/21/2011 1:40:00 AM
I'm quite pleased with this product. It's a sheer shimmery pink cream blush that can be used on eyes and lips too. I'd prefer this as lips and eyes color because I found this product a little too sticky and too shimmery to be used on my cheek. Once applied n cheek it amolified my pore to the max( like every other shimmer cheek color does to me). Anyways If you have normal-dry skin, and if you are lucky to have poreless skin I'd highly recommend this product. Because it's dirt cheap, it's smell nice, it's offer very beautiful shimmery pink color.
Girls..Don't waste your money on this product like I did. I've got Eyeshadow Suite in Counterparts. Althrough the color looked nice in the pan and the packaging is outstanding, the color doesn't show at all. No matter how hard I try to make it works, I used it over UDPP, NYX jumbo eyeshadow pencil, cream eyeshadow, I use both brushes and fingers, still can't get any color. I'm so disappointed it's such a big waste of money.
I love this blush. It's in a matte pure pink color with slightly blue undertone. I love the MAC pakaging, the lasting power, for the price I don't think it's too picey bacuase it last very long. I've been using this blush for a year just to hit the pan. It's non-offensive color can be worn everyday. Anyways I don't think it's a unique color, so maybe I will try other color after I finish this.
Highlighters -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle
misoluckie 1/20/2011 11:51:00 PM
After all the good reviews everywhere, I recently bought Soft and Gentle and had a high hope in this product. I found this product a little disappointing because it's way too shimmery to give a natural glow effect. My skin looked oily after putted it on and it does maximized my enlarged pore than ever. I used it with MAC188 brush and my face still look too oily. So I'd not recommend this product to all the oily-combination skin girls out there. I think it's only good for the normal-dry skin and poreless girls. For some of you who made the same mistake as I did, I found this product still work great on brow bone and I like it as an eyeshadow too, it makes my brown eyes pop.
I have this in OR11, a tangerine color with very fine gold shimmer. the texture is non-sticky, easy to blend, it turn into powder once applied on face which is what i like about it. On my fair-golden skin the color doesn't show well. it just add some color to my face like it naturally glow from within. so peoples can't really tell if i wear a blush or not:-p It is also very versatile you can apply it on eyes, cheek and lips. yeah! i love to apply it on my lips too give a peachy nude lips but it's too dry to wear alone so i always put it over lip-balm or under lipgloss. Overall this is just an okay product at a bargain price. suitable for everyday natural make-up. despite the poor lasting power it's in a good packaging, thin strong plastic pan which is so easy to carry in my purse. i'm quite please with this product anyways i won't buy it again because there's still so much on the market to try:-)
Lipstick -NYX - Round Lipstick in Pumpkin Pie #630
misoluckie 6/19/2010 4:45:00 AM
OMG! I've spend so much money and so much times to find a perfect nude lipstick for myself. I've tried some of NYX lipstick in other color too(orange soda, straberry milk, rea) and they all make me look sick. I end up give it all away. But this one is exactly i've always been looking for! It's peachy nude that compliment my light yellow skin-tone so well. and it doesn't wash me out. The texture is so smooth and moisturizing. Highly pigmented that it can cover my red lips so well with no need to apply lip concealor. I love it! The only negative thing is it doen't last long, need to re-apply during the day.
