I don't understand why this l/l is a staple. The colour is way too dark and brown to be even close to nude. Nudes for me are like the Naked Liner. I could see Spice working with darker skin tones, but for an NC-20 girl, this is definitely not my colour.
I don't know why they didn't make a nude lipliner sooner. And I mean nude, not brown. It is the perfect colour to fill in my pigmented lips to achieve very light nude/baby pink shades. I'm so glad they made it permanent, because otherwise, I would've bought a ton of backups.
I love love pink shades because it compliments my skin well (asian, about nc20). However, I find the viva glam gaga to be too blue toned that I can't wear it out regularly because its quite a standout blue toned pink. I don't think the colour quite suits darker skinned/tanner ladies because of the blue in the gaga lipstick. I notice most end up looking like they belong on Jersey Shore. Its just not a very flattering look. The lipstick applies glossy, but I find theres not quite enough coverage.
I love the packaging of this, the rose is so pretty. However, anyone darker than NC25 probably should not buy this to use as a blush. I am an NC15-20 and I have to use quite a heavy hand to apply. However, after i scratched the waxy top off of the blush, it was very easy to apply and showed up well. It is a light pink blush on the skin and looks very natural. I would recommend it to the fair skinned ladies as it can create a very natural dainty flush.
Lovely dolly pink shade. The product is a matte blush and applies quite nicely on the skin. I find it to be quite pigmented, but then again I've read reviews that it hasn't worked out for people who are tanner. It looks so cute and really brightens up the face. I may just be biased though, because I have a tendency to lean towards pink/dolly looking shades. For reference purposes, I am an NC15-20.

I really like this shade, its a nice peachy coral looking shade. A little bit drying, but for the price it is a great product. The one peeve that I do have is that the tip may get butchered if you aren't careful with the cap. Just for reference purposes, I'm a fair skinned asian NC15-20, however, I think this shade would be great for all skin tones.
Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Last Matte Lipstick in 901B Think Pink

This is a very pale pink lipstick. It is an affordable product, but may not be flattering on all skintones. I am an NC15-20 and I feel it is still quite a pale pink for my skintone. However, I do like the opaqueness of the lipstick and it is a pretty colour. I actually prefer this shade to MAC Viva Glam Gaga, which can be a tad too blue toned. I would recommend to anyone looking to experiment with lipstick shades. However, this is a matte lipstick therefore can be kinda drying and does require a little lip prep before wearing.

I don't buy many drugstore products but after testing out my friend's lipstick, I had to go out and get it. I'm Asian and about an NC-20. My lips are fairly pigmented and the colour shows up as a perfect natural light pink. For me its very wearable as an everyday lipstick. I really like this lipstick, the only problem is I found some of them had a weird scent to it, but the tube I picked up smelled fine.
Moisturizers -Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer spf15

I tried this moisturizer out because someone recommended it to me. The price was pretty expensive for a drugstore moisturizer $25 CAD. But it made my skin much smoother, a more even complexion and the spf was definitely a plus. Overall its a good product, doesn't leave much of a greasy feel and I actually don't think the scent is that bad. I'd probably buy this product again unless I find an even better moisturizer
