BB Cream -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector - Light/Medium
satinsheets 2/4/2012 12:41:00 PM
Very dewy product but feels nice on the skin, super moisturizing and refreshing feeling. I put this on after my sunscreen and moisturizer and pat it into my skin. I then use a powder over and still get that radiant look. It's a nice product but the Light is too dark my for complexion. I almost don't mind that since it gives a healthy glow, the shade might be better suited in the summer.
A nice pale barbie doll pink, a little cool toned on me, so I layer with a nude lipstick, I don't wear pink lips too often so it's a nice change for me. A feminine and fun color with decent staying power.
I ordered this lipstick online without seeing it in real life, and it turned out to be a mistake. But it was only $2 and I picked up some other nice NYX shades. Margarita is a bright coral pink with plenty of frost, has a wet finish. This shade looks horrible on me as a fair skinned Asian.

Smells great and my hair is soft and shiny after using the shampoo and conditioner. I am constantly switching up brands though because I find my hair gets used to certain products. I will be using this in rotation love how cheap and well it works!!!
Gels/Soaps -St. Ives - Energizing Citrus Moisturizing body wash

This is such a nice body wash, the scent is clean, citrusy and refreshing. It's not sweet at all and smells like crisp lemons and citrus fruits!! The lather is amazing and sudsy, have to say one of the best lathers ever. Also a little goes a long way so I've had the same bottle for at least 2 months, and I go through body wash like crazy. I bought this in Panama while I was traveling there, and it was perfect for the steaming humidity down there.
Lipstick -Avon - Ultra Color Rich Lipstick - Sheer Mocha
satinsheets 7/27/2011 2:02:00 AM
This is a nice lippie but since I ordered online I was surprised to see the color in the tube. It's a very dark looking brown which was off putting to me at first. It is sheer and shows up at as a sheer brown, almost a nude. I like it but it's not so moisturizing and I wear a glossy chapstick as a base. A pretty and natural lipstick.
This perfume was given to me as a gift, and I have been wearing it a few times a week. It has a comforting vanilla base, and a hint of floral, the problem is that it's too generic, and a little bland. It does have a nice musky quality too while still retaining a freshness. The lasting power is so so and I layer it with the lotion and body wash that came with the set. But it's pleasant and pretty, something my boyfriend LOVES but I am somewhat on the fence about.
I find myself reaching for this often, it's an orangey/copper shade with a metallic sheen. I wouldn't call it shimmery though, it has a moisturizing feel to it, but it seems to transfer a lot on my coffee cups and drinking glasses. It feels comfortable on the lips but it does have a strong scent to it, I love this lipstick when I want a bronzey all over look. I didn't imagine I would use this so much but I use this a few times a week it seems.
This is a great bronzer/blush product. It's natural enough to wear everyday, I use a skunk brush and feel so fresh and pretty wearing this product. I prefer this when I have a tan but it can warm up pale winter skin too! I would say this is a great vacation product just toss it in your bag and you have a gorgeous look.
This is sooo shimmery and over the top. I feel like I belong in a carnival, this will not win any natural points. I used it a few times and I felt way too made up at work. I prefer a softer bronzer. It's shimmer and more shimmer, but it's fun to use every now and then.
Blush -E.L.F. - Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder

This is very pigmented so I use a fan brush. I tried a regular brush and it was overboard, I had to soften the color a lot. Pretty and practical, can get a lot of usage out of it, I use both the bronzer and pink blush and create a flushed healthy look.
Blush -Everyday Minerals - Viki's Radiant Creation
satinsheets 10/29/2010 12:05:00 PM
I've been wearing this everyday! So obsessed, it's replaced my love for Waffle Cone. It's a very light beige/tan color, like Tea time or Email me but lighter and more natural. I never use a light hand wtih it, I love putting it on my cheeks. It wakes my skin up and is ever so natural. I normally put Viki's radiant creation on and then some brighter blush on the apples of my cheeks. The color looks sparkly but on the skin it's subtle.
Lip Gloss -E.L.F. - Mineral lipgloss in Au Naturale

I didn't like this one, the texture is sort of gritty, and the color is not flattering on me. It's a peachy pink with lots of frost, it makes my lips look washed out. I won't be using often maybe as a lipstick topper.
Foundations -Unlisted Brand - Lucy Minerals Foundation

I love this foundation, the shade I selected was a tad bit too light in "Light" but in the winter time it would be a good match. I will re buy in a shade darker. It's creamy and has enough coverage where a concealer isn't neccesary. The finish is glowy and makes my skin look so smooth. I've noticed my skin feels and looks healthier. If you love mineral foundations give this a try and if you're new to minerals this is a wonderful place to start. UPDATE: I now am using in the shade "Bisque" which is a close to perfect match on my light w/ golden undertones skin. The shade looks darker than it actually is because they use a high content of zinc oxide. Love how it melts into my face, and my skin is behaving so well ! Good in humidity and is water resistant, it also has anti oxidants which seemed to be helping :D Update: Well I still like this foundation a lot but in the winter, it's quite drying and will emphasize each flake, and patch of dry skin. It's not a Holy Grail anymore. So I will keep this for the summer, but I've had to stop since my skin is so dry and this makes me skin look really patchy and weird!! I moisturized, and used a mist but it didn't work for this weather.
I can't keep away from Everyday Minerals blush~ Sand Cherry is a peachy/orangey shade with lots of shimmer. It looks over the top but on the skin it's a peachy and glowy color, the shimmer is not crazy once applied. It's wearable too which surprised me, I ordered a full size, but if you're curious buy a sample. The sample is generous and will last for months if used sparingly. =)
