Holy rock-hard thingy! I dunno exactly how I can use this.. It dries way too quickly before I can evenly apply this on my lids. The shade is nice thou. Consistency is really intolerable. Can't even use as a good lip base. Can't substitute for concealer. Will just finish this tub and aI'm done. Will not repurchase.
I'll try Blankety after this tube. This is a frost finish but doesn't look frosty at all. I guess it's just the hype.. I didn't find anything spectacular in this tube/shade. Will try more and maybe it's just my application.. or maybe I'll get underage or turkish delight to pair w this.
Have this and used once and is already planning to re-sell. I don't like this at all. The color is nice on the tube but doesn't work for me. I'll get peachstock instead.
I've used this couple of times whenever I want to add some shimmer/frost to my lippies coz I usually use opaque non-shimmery lippies and it does a good job. Nice to use as blusher base but that's all I don't think I can use this as an e/s.

LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I've been using this for a mere week now and am absolutely sold! It leaves my skin feeling soft and well moisturized and quite matte-y after each application. I have oily t-zone and this doesn't make me any oiler. It lives up to it's tag line "moisture drink" actually. The 125ml bottle will def go along way. Didn't break out my uber sensitive skin too! Will repurchase once out.. or actually, before I ran out :) This is really expensive locally but is just half-priced if bought abroad.
THE BEST!!! I can have just this palette and forget all other palettes for life! This is just complete! I use it every single day since I got it and even made me forget 'bout my UD Naked Pallete. All the shades are wearable and perfectly made! I just wish TF added a pencil or the shadow insurance but otherwise I'm sold. Good thing this is not LE. Will buy once out. :)

Loose Powders -MAC - Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder

This product is just PHENOMENAL! If you're eyeing for a glowing no-makeup look this is the best setting powder to dab on. I use this to either set my TM or dab on my fresh clean face when in a hurry and the result is amazing. This does not mattify but does great on controlling my uber oily t-zone. Also, when applied to set concealers I noticed that it makes it last long plus helps avoid to sink in fine lines. This powder deserves all the hype. The only down side is that the holes in the sifter is just too big for a finely milled satin-y powder, makes the powder fly whenever the jar is opened. Will repurchase over and over!
Makeup Brushes -Sonia Kashuk - Circle Around A Cause 6 Piece Brush Set

I think this is a collector's item for brush sets :) I'm lucky to have bought one since is LE too! The pouch is great and all the brushes are great except I think the e/s brush is way too big to actually swipe on e/s. I have many brushes already so I'll just use this on selected events. The packaging is just AMAZING! Love SK brushes!
Perfect for travelling as advertised. Good for touch ups but not for initial m/u application as all brushes are too small IMHO. I have the Nice in Pink and I'm regularly using the face brushes. I think I would need the regular version brushes to appreciate more. :)
I believe this is a more wearable version of Saint Germain and Lady Gaga but still I notice that the shade has more lavender to it than pink. I have cool hair color and can wear almost any neon-y l/s shade. I think I'll just wear this alone on parties and will layer a light pink-y l/s for day use. This is LE but even if it's not, I won't repurchase.
My perfect peach! At first I thought this shade is way too pale but when I saw my photos wearing this with MAC's Ember Glow layered on top.. t'was just phenomenal. I'm now crazy 'bout this and is super thankful that this is easily available from my local NARS counter. Would repurchase once done with my tube! Love love!
Definitely this is the deep red l/s I have long been looking for! No brown tone just a nice deep retro semi-matte red. Perfect! The color in the photos above were mostly likely taken with flash.. I wonder why the shade looks true red when taken with flash, I experienced that myself. This is better worn if you would be taking photos and would not be using flash. In person this l/s shade is just stunning! Would def repurchase despite the hefty price tag. I love the packaging so much!
So the color looks really nice when swatched. No question bout that. But, when applied to my cheeks this blush just looked so fake specially when layered.. Though, I wonder why my cheeks looks so much glowy in photos whenever I'm wearing this. I'm in a love hate relationship with this blush :) won't repurchase as I seldom use.
Got this LE blush like a month ago from eBay. I was looking for a nice peachy blush as I'm already tired of pink blushes. At first, I really disliked this one, thought that I again just wasted moolah for something I won't be using. But after using this for the third time I noticed that the veinings in the pan would look more noticeable and once applied my cheeks becomes more radiant but in a natural, glowy looking way. I'm just glad that I got this over NARS Gilda (this went on too dark for me.. or maybe it's just my application). I won't repurchase since I still have a lot of product and as other blushes from MAC, this will last me long.
