I rarely use foundation but this is amazing! It goes on smoothly (reminded me of Smashbox photo finish primer) and stays on forever. I just dab it on the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead and blend with my fingers. It evens the skin tone and dries rapidly. It doesn't budge even after a long day under the sun or in the office, so my makeup stays on. I'm NC 25.
I recently bought #1 Fresh Rose and it was fabulous on my MAC NC25 skin! It is very easy to apply and goes on sheer, so you can layer it to your desired level of flush. A guy friend thought I was out in the sun as my cheeks were rosy and had a glow to them. I would get this again! I took one lippie off as it is so expensive.
Eye Shadow -TheBalm - Shady Lady Eyeshadow Palette

I absolutely love this eyeshadow palette! I have 2 of the single e/s and they are so fine and easy to use. The palette is no different. The 9 colors are quite neutral shades (for me) and are so easy to match and blend. Easy Wheezie (gunmetal gray) is a surprise winner for me. I have been wearing it with the plum or blue or green e/s. Somehow it is able to blend and bring out the the colors better.
I am not a pink eyeshadow person but I love this as a highlight. It goes on a soft light pink on my NC-25 skin tone. The shimmers are subtle and not screaming loud which make it perfect for the office. I would re-purchase this again.
It is a very sheer lilac/lavender color which is only good as a wash or highlight. I find it goes perfectly well with Nars Fathom eye shadow. I am using these two colors for a neutral office look.
I received a sample size of the toner and I like it. It is gentle and non-drying. Plus I love the scent! I will probably get a full size to try out.
I am on my 2nd bottle and will be getting another one after I'm done with this. This is my HG fragrance now. Usually I stopped using the fragrance when it is my 2nd bottle. I absolutely love the light fruity citrusy scent. It is both fresh and uplifting and is perfect for warm summer days or for when I need a zesty boost. The pretty angel on top of the bottle is too cute for words too.

I love love love Covet! It just glides on like a dream, no tugging at the skin at all. The gorgeous emerald green just makes my eyes popped. It instantly brightens up the eyes.
Skincare - Face -Helena Rubinstein - Force C Premium

I am loving this product again. I stopped using it for about 4 years because of the price and recently picked it up again. It is a new packaging in a bigger size (50ml) and I love the pump. I have been using this for about a month now and my skin is so much softer and smoother, almost like a baby. The face is more radiant and clearer too. And the citrusy scent of the vitamin C always helps to perk me up.
I like Florence. The rose scent is very subtle and soft, none of the usual cloying floral scent. It permeates the room slowly and infuses it with its light rose fragrance. Great for those who prefer something gentle.
I bought this in travel size (candelina) and I absolutely adore this! The scent is not overpowering and the slight citrusy scent is refreshing. It burns clean and even, no worries of smokiness at all. I would definitely repurchase this.
I like this in the bottle - a pearly greyish lilac. It did not look that fabulous on my tanned feet, it made me looked washed out. Maybe it is better on paler skin or on the fingers.
This is a lovely muted mauve which is not very loud. Perfect for days when you want a soft and elegant color. It chipped real fast though, within a week, even with a top coat on.
I saw this on another lady's toenails when I was having a pedicure and it looked gorgeous on her. So I requested to have the same color applied on my nails. It was very dark, almost brown, when the first coat was applied. It looked much better with 2 coats and was a deep wine-brown-red on me under natural light. But when under soft lighting, it looked more deep red with microshimmers which looked fantastic!
I love this palette! This is my HG palette and is perfect for work or days when I can't think of what colors to use. The eyeshadows are pigmented and shimmery, yet not too strong or OTT for day look. The blush gives a natural pinkish flush to the face. I have already hit pan for the lilac eyeshadow and blush. Luckily I managed to buy a back-up.
