Medium Tan Asian, yellow undertones Mac Foundation Shade NC35, C4 Combination Skin, oily at t-zone & dry at cheeks I love this product, really, because of its packaging, scent, and application. I personally don't enjoy using bronzers with too much shimmer, so this is the go to bronzer for me! I find it to be just a bit shimmery, barely visible, but enough to make my skin glow naturally. I love the application of it, not to powdery but not too rigid, and it goes smoothly on my skin. I always love smelling the product before wearing it, I'm really getting addicted to this smell. I think the packaging seems very girly and cute, and even a bit classy in a way. I just have to say I love this product, as I love most product I purchase, since I research and look into the product A LOT before actually purchasing it. Overall, LOVE IT
Medium Tan Asian, yellow undertones Mac Foundation Shade NC35, C4 Combination Skin, oily at t-zone & dry at cheeks This is from now on, my HG foundation! I got the foundation in shade O5 since I have quite yellow undertones, but then think the N5 might have been okay too. I couldn't decide between the O3 and O5 for the longest time ever, since I live in Singapore and the only way I can purchase this is through the internet, but came to getting O5 after a loooooong research. I feel that the shade O5 might be a bit dark for me, but then think it would be much better than using a lighter shade for my skin, since I hate people that wear foundation lighter, so their face and body don't match... The O5 just seems darker I think, because it has a very olive or yellow undertone to it, which might make the product seem quite muddy, but once I apply it to my face, it work brilliantly! I love wearing this when I need a long wear foundation that doesn't come off with water or sweat. I do always blot it with a powder so that it stays even longer. Overall, I guess I could say it's just the best foundation I've ever used.
Medium Tan Asian, yellow undertones Mac Foundation Shade NC35, C4 Combination Skin, oily at t-zone & dry at cheeks I got this product in the smaller once, since I have ordered it online and didn't know if my skin would like it or not. The product is still very abundant, and I can't even imagine finishing it any time soon since I don't wear makeup daily. The colour is very yellow and thus is sort of a brightening and color correcting powder, which blots oil very well. I just love this product so much, but the packaging really just brings it down to a 4 out of 5. I find it very inconvenient to use, but still love the application of it.
I have definitely got to say that i LOVE this perfume. First of all, I loved the packaging which gave a very summery cool feeling, almost like a fantasy. I love how the scent is very light and fresh, with a peachy scent under it, which I love because it is so sweet. However, I have got to say that the lasting power isn't that great, the scent almost is barely there after about 3 hours, so I would have to carry it around if I want it to last forever. Still, this fragrance is one of my favourite, which I wear almost every single day
This product isn't the lightest and freshest fragrance I own, but is definitely one of the heaviest and warmest one. It has a sense of heaviness to it, which allows it to last long on myself, but does sometimes feel too heavy and draggy at times. But I do love wearing this whenever I don't feel too light or summery, and I love the packaging.
This has to be my favourite fragrance of all times, having everything that I want in a perfume. I've always been a fan of a sweet but freshly lasting perfume, and this is the one. It has a slight tinge of a peachy scent, holding onto a fresh and light summery feeling as well as a sweet and warm scent to it. I just love this fragrance so much, that it's always the one I grab for everyday perfume. The only thing I hate about this perfume is the packaging, which is just too simple and dull. If it was done in a style of minimalism, I wouldn't say much, but it is simple and boring and just one of the worst bottles I have ever found of a perfume. Nevertheless, I love this perfume, and am always planning on purchasing it again when I am done!
I definitely love this perfume, in all aspects: the packaging, the scent, the lasting power, and the feeling of it on myself. I love how it is very light and fresh, with a flowery scent to it but then again a slight sweetening feeling too. It has quite a mature scent, rather than a pretty/cute scent. As a design student, I really LOVE the packaging, which actually made me grab this perfume at first sight.
I really love this product, the way the scent isn't too powerful but does have quite a long lasting power. The flowery scent seems so smooth and gradual with a very light feeling that doesn't feel heavy at all. However, at times I do feel that the flowery scent is a bit too basic, being one that I can find in other perfumes too, so I don't grab for this perfume that much anymore. I am planning on getting the incanto charms, which has a more sweet scent to it than the incanto dreams, as I just love this line of perfumes!

Medium Tan Asian, yellow undertones Mac Foundation Shade NC35, C4 Combination Skin, oily at t-zone & dry at cheeks I tend to use this more as an eyeshadow than a highlighter, as I do not like my highlights too strong and shimmery. I like the 'shine' look more. I love the way it makes my eyelids very shimmery and shiny, with a little sense of metallic build to it. However, I feel that it doesn't really stick onto the skin very well, needing some help of shadow primers. Also, it is very flaky and has a lot of fallout, so I tend to do my eye makeup before I do my foundation, whenever I am using this. I personally wouldn't purchase such a product from bobbi brown since I like to save money on makeup that's just used, washed out and gone after time, but I like using it as a present from a friend (:
Medium Tan Asian, yellow undertones Mac Foundation Shade NC35, C4 Combination Skin, oily at t-zone & dry at cheeks I have this product in the shade medium, and it goes well on my under eyes when applied lightly, as it tends to brighten up my skin a tiny little bit. This concealer has quite a coverage, and works well on blemishes too, but since I have quite clean skin, I tend to only use it on my redness and under eyes, where it works very well. Nothing much more to say about this product. It covers well, has nice yellow undertones for Asian skins, has nice packaging that allows me to control the amount to use. But then again, being smashbox, it does come to me as a bit expensive, but the product is so totally worth the buy!

I love this primer, despite what other say about even better eyeshadow primers. When I first used it I hated how the oily substance and the colour pigments came out separated, but after a few uses the product came out great. I love the silicone feeling it has to it, which assures me of how well it will stick on to my eyelids, as well as reduce the oiliness. People tend to say the urban decay one is better for oily eyelids, but since I don't really have particularly oily eyelids, I find this product great! The packaging makes it easy to control a good amount of product I want to use, and most importantly, is sanitary. I also love how it doesn't really show the shade of the product on my eyelids once on, and tends to blend in very well. Love it!
Medium Tan Asian, yellow undertones Mac Foundation Shade NC35, C4 Combination Skin, oily at t-zone & dry at cheeks I generally apply this product on my t-zone area, and it works great! It seems to block out any excess oil on the t-zone, and lets my foundation set on my face very well. I love the packaging of it too, easily used with a pump that allows me to control the amount of product I want to use. I like the silicone feeling it has to it, as it tends to assure that the oil will be blotted out of my skin well. Overall, I really LOVE this product, but I am kind of wary about re-purchasing as for me, the product is a little bit on the pricey side, but the cons of this product really drags me in!
Primer/ Corrector -Revlon - PhotoReady Perfecting Primer (color 001)

Medium Tan Asian, yellow undertones Mac Foundation Shade NC35, C4 Combination Skin, oily at t-zone & dry at cheeks I always apply this only on my t-zone area, as my cheeks, as listed above, as very dry and I don't feel the need of primer on them. This product works great, allowing a nice application of foundation, as well as a great wearing time, letting my foundation stay on my skin for a long time. However, when I first used the product, I was shocked at how weird it smelt. I actually believed I was sticking on clay or play-dough on my face, thanks to the odd industrial scent that it has to it. I like the packaging as a whole, but not the way the tip works (where the product comes out). Every time I use the product, I have to press down on the pump a little bit to get rid of the approx. 3mm of hardened or solidified product at the tip of the pump, and throw it out in the bin, then re-pump to apply on my face. Other than these cons, I like this product, and I think I would buy the product again, as I love the price of it!
I am an Asian with very, very straight hair, and this product goes on well on both my naturally straight hair and waved out hair. I tend to make my hair wavy by leaving it in a bun for a couple of hours, and despite the description that notes that this product is better used on straight hair, I love the way it goes on and smoothes my hair but doesn't pull down the curls. The scent of this product is amazing, as well as the texture of the product and the way it comes out of the package. People always ask me what shampoo I use, and I always tell them it's not the shampoo, and that it's TIGI afterparty! The packaging is so hilarious, my friends laugh at it all the time haha
I really love this product, in all different ways! I always spray it on my face prior to applying foundation to let it set in better, then set my foundation and powder with this again to give a bit more of a natural finish rather than a matte finish, and also to perfectly set my foundation for a longer lasting look. I think the product is so well priced, even here in Singapore as $25, where a lot of imported foreign makeup brands get excessively overpriced. Anyways, I am definitely up for buying this product again, as it does its job so well, and also has such a pretty, cute, durable and smart packaging!
