Lipstick -Shiseido - Perfect Rouge Glowing Matte Lipstick (all)

Normally i use lipstains but they are totally drying. I just like the matte look on my lips. I dont know why but i hate having shiny lips. I feels so "overdone" kinda too much on my full lips. So i tried this matte lipstick in Rd 325 an coral red with a tint of pink color. this color makes my face look so fresh and bright (for refernce i am a NC35-37 ) Qualitywise this is more than good.its staying power is amazing and it does not dry out my lips at all. I love it!!
Powder -Giorgio Armani - Lasting Silk UV Compact Foundation
mystar456 1/26/2012 9:28:00 AM
pros: -good coverage -yellow undertones cons: -pafume smell-cant stand it -looks cakey -broke out like crazy :( -high price not gonna buy again
this is a sheer powder foundation. i am an nc 35-37 and bought no 5LM which is a quite good color match.( I love the brownish yellow undertones) I have to conceal my dark circles and my blemishes first, cause this powder does only a good job in even out the skin not in covering blemishes. my skin looks super natural .. i can put a tones of layers and i never look cakey..so it sounds like a pretty normal powder foundation right? but the best thing is that it does not break me out like other foundations do. i have the most sensitvie skin and this one treats my skin so well that i have to love it.
Mascara -Helena Rubinstein - Lash Queen Feline Blacks Waterproof
mystar456 10/11/2010 7:14:00 AM
I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THIS MASCARA, why? I have straight, really short asian lashes..I always need waterproof mascara bc the normal formulation would weighed down my curl to its normal straight position. But this mascara does wonders to my eyes. It holds my curl like no others, way better then Hypnose WT and i dont even need my shiseido base primer. It really lenghtens and adds a lil bit volume and still feels super soft.. applying: The first thing i do is heating my beloved MAC eyelash curler with a blow dryer. Then i curl my lashes and directly put mascara on-let it dry and put about3 several coats... that is the way i get the "wow"-effect. Well, here in Germany it costs 31Euro, which is really expensive, but i think it's worth the price. For sure my HG mascara..highly recommend this
well.. i am a freaking makeup-junkie.i love foundations and i am always on the go to find the best. and after reading hell alot good reviews about this new mac foundation i thought to give it a try. Normally i dont really like MAC foundations, i do like their color range but hate the quality and finish -i broke out like crazy. For reference i am an NC35 in Studio fix sluid, but in pro longwear i am an NC37 ..weird. I would say that the pro longwear NC colors are more orange -beige than yellow-which i do prefer.It does not give me the ashy look like SFF. I love the semi-matt finish , i love the orange color which looks super great on my asian skintone, even my boyfriend said that my skin looks super natural (normally he hates my makeup). I use this foundation with my beloved maybellin dream matte pressed powder ..and i dont need any touch-ups during the day. What i dont like is that it has SPF, it does not photographs really well. i do look like a ghost on photos. Dont use it for shootings or night outs.but i can tell for sure: This is my HG-daytime-foundation highly recommend this <3
Pressed Powders -Maybelline - Dream Matte Pressed Powder

Well in my opinion this is the best drugstore powder on the market. I use it to set my liquid foundation. PRO: -semi-matt finish - it is colorless (i got it in light medium and medium dark) and it is almost the same -looks natural and smooth and super flawless -does not look cakey at all -it does not have any SPF so it looks really good on camera which is very important for my job -dont need any touch ups during the day -the price <3 it is way cheaper than chanel,shiseido and sephora powder and works so much better CONTRA: -i dont like the packaging but for the price and especially the quality i can live with it
I bought it last week and i do use it every day. It gives u a nice satin matt finish. I would say that it has medium coverage but u can build it to full coverage. For reference, i am an NC 37- 40 in MAC and i use O60. This color matches my skintone perfectly because it has strong yellow tone in it.I would say if you have dry skin this foundation is nothing for you EDIT: I broke out like crazy. hate the spf in it. and it cloged the pores.
Well, at first i have to tell you i have sensitive combination skin. actually, i am asian so i have medium yellow based skin so my perfect shade is no. D30 (mac sff NC37). Before using this i use a hydraing gel- creme and then i apply this powder over my whole face with a sponge which comes with. After appling it, my face looks so amazingly matt, fresh and healthy. It has full coverage does not get chalky but feels very light on my face like i have no make up on. The price es tres bien, only 13euro.. ->I love this stuff bc it does not irritate my sensitive skin and matches my skin perfectly and isnt pricey at all! EDIT 9/8/2010 I does not look good on camera because it contains SPF. My face looked so ashy and white, it kinda washed out my foundation and i had to do a lot of touch ups during the day. i prefer Maybellin dream matte pressed powder over this product
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation

After reading a whole bunch of good reviews about the mufe foundation i wanted to give it a try.
Last weekend i went to Sephora, the saleswoman helped me to find the right shade no 128- mac nc 37
I wanted to love it so badly, but it does not work for me at all. I really love the fact that it has medium to full coverage and it has yellow undertones bc i have asian yellow based skintone but hell, this foundation makes my skin so dry. I used it about 2 week, and oh my gosh i had so much whiteheads on my skin ..so disgusting!!! dont recommend this foundation, sorry mac
Mascara -Shiseido - The Makeup Mascara Base [DISCONTINUED]
mystar456 4/13/2010 10:58:00 AM
This mascara base is amazing. First, i have to say, my lashes are very short and straight . After reading a whole bunch of the shiseido base review, i decided to buy this base and goshhh, after applying it with my hypnose waterproof mascara my lashes were curled all day. Normally when i only applied hypnose my lashes "fall down" in its normal position. so thats why i love it **Edit: The helena rubinstein mascara feline blacks WT is amazing. i dont need to use this base. It hold my curl way better without this base!!
