Highlighters -NARS - Highlighting Blush Powder in Albatross

this is super soft in the pan so a little goes a long way. it's a golden sheen that catches the light and makes a great finishing touch when my make up is done. i apply above my cheeks up to my temples and down the bridge of my nose just to give that "fresh" face look.
these glosses are really pigmented and smooth. the only thing that gets to me is the candy smell of these glosses but not a big deal.
Lip Liners -Jordana - Easyliner for Lips in Rock n' Rose

FINALLY! i have tried chanel, mac, lancome, mufe, urban decay, and more and still could not be satisfied when it came to finding the perfect lip liner. JORDANA retractable lip liners are creamy, smooth, and does not dry my lips out like others i have tried. i have rock & rose (mauvey nude) and honey dip (similar to mac's spice without the strong orange tone) and i can pair them with all of my glosses. another plus to these liners is that they don't feel heavy on my lips and blends effortlessly. HG for me
although cork gets great reviews, i just couldn't get this color to work for me. it was a bit ashy and muddy so i went with "soft brown."
if you're debating between blanc type and orb, orb is "warmer." it's not as harsh looking as blanc type, which looks a bit chalky on me.

LOVE!!!! i will buy this over and over again.
i love it. from the compact to the color to the buttery soft texture. just use a light hand because it's easy to over do it.

i'm nc37 and bought this in medium / dark. i was pretty surprised how much i liked this tinted moisturizer. the color is good match, the coverage is light but leaves it polished, and most importantly feels light on my skin. i use a primer under this and blot powder and it lasted all day for me. i think i'm liking this more than my other foundation because it allows my skin to look fresh and polished instead of covered in heavy foundation which can make you look older. less is more for me... ------update------- dries out my lips so back it goes

i like the color, but dries out my lips
i was debating between desire and pink and decided to go with desire. they're similar but desire is much more interesting because of it's satin finish and mauve undertone. the pink blush is matte and nice for fairer skintones but just wasn't enough color for me.
i read so many great reviews about this color blush and whenever i went into sephora and saw it in the pan, i was turned off by how dull it looked. eventually, i had to buy it and try it for myself at home to see what all the hype was about and i was super excited to have liked it. i'm nc37, asian, with yellow undertones and this color looked really nice on. i can't explain the color but it just made my face look so much more awake and it defined my cheeks. i LOVE this blush!!!!
this color is so pretty! i was on a hunt for a good warm peach with a golden sheen for that extra oomph and this is it. sometimes it can lean more on the orange side but still pretty. the more i'm trying LORAC's products, i've noticed their colors are so unique. this line is starting to become my HG of make up.
just to add something to all the great reviews about "serenity" eyeshadow.... this color is very similar to mac's "all that glitters". they almost look exactly the same except that ATG is warmer which has a TINY bit of peachiness to it. all LORAC's eyeshadows are buttery soft!
exposed is more of a peachy color... velvet rope, is more pinkier. both are very pigmented and has a satin finish. these blushes have really good staying power and are really pigmented so i don't see myself hitting the pan for a looong time. i think i prefer their other blushes though.... "desire" is so pretty!
