Just bought this after resisting the temptation for long enough...love the shade...looks very natural on me...goes on a light sandy brown-beige with subtle shimmer. I think I really needed a shade like this and I guess I'm gonna be wearing it every alternate day. In between, I'll be wearing my fav. Silver Plum.

I have this in Silver Plum and it's one of may favorite lipsticks. This is one of the few shades which really suit me or so I think!!! I wear it nearly everyday. It's a nice metallic mauve...I bought this when I ran out of my Avon l/s in Metallic Vamp and a MUAer suggested this one to me. It's somewhat simila to Maybelline's Silver Plum, but I think I like this better.

Had run out of my Oil of Olay moisturizer so started using the Ponds Moisture Replenishing Lotion that I had bought a while ago but hadn't used up completely...and I think, I'm liking the feel of this one better than Olay. It makes my hands and face feel softer and is non greasy and I just love the smell. I'll probably switch back to Ponds and buy their cold cream as well!
Finally....I got to try this! And I absolutely love it! Excellent texture. Gives a lovely and natural glow and with a nice, subtle shimmer. Shows up like a nice light peachy-pink on my FFF complexion. I guess, I'm going to be wearing it all the time. And what a great price!!!

This is my HG foundation. It's absolutely fantastic!!!I have it in buff. It goes on sheer, looks natural, provides sheer to light coverage and makes me glow. Also, I needed something with a dewey/glowy finish and this is IDEAL. It's not glittery or sparkly but just adds a very subtle shimmer to the face. And since, foundations make me look, too made up, I prefer TMs and this one just looks really natural and yet does a great job in evening out the skintone and making ou look flawless. But then my complexion is kind of fine. I have received many compliments while I'm wearing this and twice had people telling me that I look radiant! It's quite expensive for a drugstore foundation though and I don't like the fact that it comes in a glass bottle. Since, I'm somewhat clumsy and reckless, I prefer studier packing. Also, I usually mix a bit of moisturizer with it, before applying. If they continue to make this, I might stick to this for a lifetime!!

This was probably my first find thanks to MUA and I really love it. But since my skin is too dry, I sometimes add a bit of moisturizer to it before applying. It goes on sheer and just evens out my skin tone and provides just the kind of coverage I was looking for since foundations don't suit me alot and make me look made up. But this looks natural. And, I like the packaging too---plastic tube--it's convenient, small, can be carried around in the purse and perfect for someone clumsy like me, who would tend to drop everything on the floor!!!
Blush -Wet 'n' Wild - Twist-Up Blush Stick - Flirt - 724

I just bought this, to use as a highlighter for a subtle glow and it seems just right, since I can't handle too much glitter/shimmer. And suite my pocket perfectly. Bought yesterday and tried it on...seems pretty blendable, so far!
A friend of mine who doesn't have access to Rimmel cosmetics in her country had wanted me to get this for her. I was generally skeptical about this brand...so never really looked at the stuff...but when I went to pick the blush in Pink Rose for her, I found the shade so lovely looking that I decided to give it a shot and for 5 CAD it wasn't much of a risk. And I have just loved wearing it. It's a lovely light pink, with a subtle shimmer and blends very well. Pinks uaully make me look like a clown, but this one's just the right pink for my medium fair Asian Indian complexion and gives a very natural glow. In fact it's the first time I bought a pink blush, otherwise I always used browns or bricky shades. I have received some compliments while wearing this blush and I would love to try out their other shades as well...particularly Santa Rose.
