OMG one of my favorite blushes from Benefit! Im also glad I bought this before they decided to change their packaging cuz im not a big fan of the new ones. But anywaaays, this blush is the perfect glowing cheek product ever! Perfect for fall or anytime you want that glow. Looks awesome if you pack it on at night. Its one of the blushes from the line thats kinda understated and you dont hear much of. Such a unique color & goes with almost any look you do. Plus I love the scent it has & how portable it is. I dont mind the brushes that come with this bc they do come in handy for touch ups. I dont have to worry about purchasing again (since it is pricey) bc theres so much product in there! Looove Dallas so much<3
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Greed
piinkcheeks27 3/3/2012 1:51:00 AM
Out of all the primer potions, this one is the hardest to work with. I was really excited to recieve this bc Ive tried all of their potions. This one was irritating cuz it was mostly glitther when I swipe it across my lids. I bought it for the fact that it was a gold base so for neutrals I thought it would make a nice pop. Ehhh, I still have to work with this one. All I see is glitter, no gold base. Reading some reviews, some people say to layer on the color, but that would just lead to cakiness. Id skip this primer if I was you & maybe go for MAC indianwood pp instead!
I personally believe these eyeshadows in particular have to be applied with your fingers because of the formulation. . .Thats just my opinion. This is my first eyeshadow from this line and I really enjoy it. As a lid color & a highlight, it's great! Last all day with no smearing. No shimmer, completely matte so its perfect. Great for looks that dont require a lot of effort :)
I have this on my nails as I type this up. I absolutely am in love with this color & formulation! So smooth & pigmented, with less chipping. Dare I say it's better than OPI??? I only have only 2 Zoya polishes but Im definately a big fan! THis color screams spring/summer & its so girlyyy! Definaately a must have :)
OMG I CANT BELIEVE I HAVENT REVIEWED MY FAVORITE GO-TO CONTOUR COLOR!?!? AHHHHHHHH! This has been my favoorite for a while now and I use it everyday! I have other bronzers, but always run back to this one. IT"S FULL PROOF! No orange or red whatsoever so it creates a nice natural shadow on the cheek. Ive had mine for more than a year and yet to see a dent! Amaaazing! It is pricey, but trust me its well worth the money! Great to travel with, but gets kinda bulky >.< I love this stuff & everything Benefit (well so far that Ive tried hehhee)
Primer/ Corrector -Korres - Korres Pomegranate Mattifying Face Primer
piinkcheeks27 2/7/2012 11:29:00 PM
I finally turned in 100 of my points for a sample of this and Im so glad i did! This primer goes on smoothly & dries prettty quick. I think the tint helps with my redness around my cheek. It helps my foundation stay on all day & I do get a LITTLE oily, but no biggie! Unlike smashbox foundation primer (which I hate), this has no silicone sooo its perfect for oily skin or those prone to breakouts. This does have a nice almost rose scent to it but it goes away. I already purchased the full size of this!
Eyeliner -Tarte - EmphasEYES waterproof clay eye shadow & liner
piinkcheeks27 1/28/2012 3:15:00 PM
I really dont like this creme/gel liner at all! I bought it with the set with the brush which I loooove! THis stuff was amazing the first few times I tried it, then it dried out on me! Sucks cuz this stuff aint cheap. Its 20 bucks or more (w/ the brush) So in all i felt like I didnt waste money cuz I guess I paid for the brush which is awesome. I like Wet n wild gel liner better or MAC blacktrack. Seriously, skip this one!
This color is such a hard color to get but when you do SNATCH IT! Sooooo pretty & is a great dupe for the Debrah Libbman (sp?) one! The glitters are fun & eyecatching! Great job OPI!
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lip Gloss (general)
piinkcheeks27 1/19/2012 8:11:00 PM
Overall, I do love these lipglosses. Much cheaper than your average MAC gloss & its pretty much up there if youre talking about quality. My only complaint is that it can get messy with the brush & applicator but other than that, the gloss is really moisturizing & the colors are amaazing!
Polishes -OPI - The Muppets Collection - Meep-Meep-Meep
piinkcheeks27 1/19/2012 8:10:00 PM
Such a lovely color for the holidays! I love the Muppet collection from OPI! every color is a hit! this is sucha nice magenta color w/ sparkles! SOooooo lovely on & i get compliments. Looks nice on my pale-ish skin. Its a must have if you can still get your hands on it!
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - ExpertWear Eyeshadow Quad in Chai Latte
piinkcheeks27 1/19/2012 8:07:00 PM
I heard so many rave reviews about this quad & I fell disappointed to it ;( It took a lot for me to get the colors to show up on my lid & blending was hard. . .iM better off with my Naked palette
This is such a pretty color. It almost leans coral to me & I love how it looks different depending how youre lookin at it. very pigmented & easy to blend. Perfect for the summer or spring! It is also one of those eyeshadows you can put on the lid and blend it out & youre set!
Such a lovely everyday color. Can be used on the lid, highlight or inner corner! It gives the perfect almost golden sheen to a look. Its one of those colors thats a MUST HAVE if youre starting off with MAC eyeshadows! It can even be used as a cheek highlight :)
Blush -Tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed Tarte Blush
piinkcheeks27 1/19/2012 7:55:00 PM
Although Im all for "nude" blushes, this just didnt look right on me. Im NC25 right now and it looks like any other blush. I do love how smooth it is & how easy it is to blend. I wish I bought another blush in another color, but given that they are pretty pricey, ill pass. Packaging is cute, but I just dont get the hype on this one. Kinda reminds me of MAC Blushbaby. . .
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter in Creme Brulee
piinkcheeks27 1/19/2012 7:50:00 PM
Great for everyday wear. Not as pigmented, needs a few swipes to see it. But its one of those lip products you dont have to worry about being "perfect". I love the packaging with the quilted pattern & the smell is not so strong. Wish this was a little more in color but its okaaay, just layer another lipstick on the bottom cuz these dont need gloss!
