I have been using this concealer for 3 years. I love it, it covers my face flawlessly, and looks beautiful in photos. Ever since recently, I haven't been wearing any foundation or powder, only concealer because I have terrible dark circles. I use an NC42 and I have noticed that when I use it, it turns orange, and it looks very obvious because I am not wearing any foundation or powder. I haven't been using it because it turns orange. I know that if I do wear face make up, it would be fine. My sister, however, has this concealer in NC30, which is too light for me but I still use it because it doesn't turn orange. I might purchase the NC35 if it doesn't turn orange on me.

I have combination skin, I wanted something to even out my skin tone, but not full coverage. The coverage of this was perfect, but it was very oily after application. I set it with a translucent powder, and after a few hours, my face would look like a grease ball. This product just FEELS oily on my face, and I don't like that. Every time I would use this, I would get small, white pimples on my face. I tried to love it, but I ended up giving it away to my friend who actually likes this product.
This colour is amazing, it gives me a nice peachy colour on my cheeks. Because this is a frost, it also makes my skin look glowy. When I use this blush, I don't have to put on a highlight because this blush gives me that glow. It's like a 2 in one, blush and highlight :)
I never bought this perfume before, but I recognized the packaging and name when I was in a department store (I think it was The Bay). I sprayed it once on my jacket thinking it was going to smell nice. The first thing I thought of was "Damn, this smells TOO strong and it smells like old lady". I was hoping the scent would disappear quickly since I hated it, but it stayed on the entire day. There's a plus for someone who wants to purchase this perfume.
Makeup Brushes -Ecotools - Bamboo Angled Eyeliner Brush

I actually have 2 of this brush. One to use with my gel eyeliner and one to use to fill in my eyebrows. This brush is perfect for eyeliner but it's just okay for eyeliner. It's nice and dense and soft. This brush is only okay for eyeliner because it's pretty big for an eyeliner brush but I can live with that. Winging out your eyeliner with this brush sucks because it's so big, like I said. When I winged out my eyeliner, it was also hard to fill in the space in between the cat eye and my upper lash line. Overall, this brush is pretty good. I would recommend it to fill in your eyebrows but not for your eyeliner.
This is the perfect blush brush! I use it everyday and it's awesome. It's really soft and hasn't shed on me. If you're looking for a cheap blush brush, buy this. It's a really good quality brush for such a cheap price.

I haate this brush! It doesn't pick up eye shadows very well, and if it does only a little bit goes on it. It's better off being a small concealer brush. I've used it for concealer and it's perfect for it. As for an eye shadow kinda brush, it suckss!
I use this brush to put on my foundation. It blends really nicely and makes my foundation look flawless. The brush never shed on me and it's really soft!
I love this foundation. It stays on longer than most foundations I've tried. I find that foundations don't last that long on me. Overall it's really good. It's a nice full coverage foundation. I apply this foundation with that Ecotools bamboo bronzer blush and it makes me look flawless! I don't really know what to say about this foundation besides that it's good.
This is my HG eye shadow, I use it everyday on my lids. I love the look of wearing an eye shadow that's kind of close to your skin tone, but with a shimmer. That's why I love using this eye shadow. It's also the perfect lid color for a smokey eye look. When I want to do a little bit more with my eye shadow, but not a whole smokey eye, I put All That Glitters on my lid with Espresso on my crease. It's a perfect look if you don't want too much or too little eye shadow on.
I use this eye shadow to fill in my eyebrows. I have black hair and black eyebrow hairs. I used to use Espresso to fill them in, but that was waaayy to light so I switched to Brun. Brun is better because it's obviously darker than Espresso. When I take pictures from far away you can see my eyebrows but it's kind of light, especially since I have black hair and tanned skin. But when you look at it up close, it's fine. I haven't really used Brun for my eyes yet, so I can't say anything about that. I would recommend this eye shadow if you have black hair like me and you want to fill in your eyebrows.
I used to use this Espresso to fill in my brows until I got tired of seeing pictures of me looking like I have really light eyebrows or barely. I have black hair so it looked really weird. My eyebrows are a little bit sparse so that's why I filled them in, but it ended up looking worse when I filled it in. Wrong shade for my eyebrowss. This eye shadow is perfect for a crease color or outer corners for perfect natural look. I wouldn't recommend this eye shadow if you have black hair and you want to fill in your eyebrows (only if you have black eyebrow hairs). But just as a normal eye shadow to use on your eyes, I would totally recommend it.
This is a very natural looking mascara. It separates your lashes, gives some length, and some volume. If you're looking for a mascara that will give you dramatic lashes, this is not the mascara for you. It's better for the people that's looking for natural lashes. I prefer Maybelline's The Colossal mascara over this one because it gives me more length and volume.
I'm so glad I got this mini mascara from Sephora's 500 points reward, otherwise I would have never bought it. At first I liked this mascara, it gave me length, some volume, and it separated my lashes, but it smudges. After 2-3 weeks of using it, all it did was lengthen a LITTLE BIT, separate lashes, and give no volume. It was horribblee! I was so disappointed, at least I didn't have to buy it.
I got this blush from the Sephora 500 points thing that came with a mini mascara and Coralista came in full size. This blush reminds me SO much of NARS Orgasm but with way more shimmer. It doesn't show up very well unless I put on a lot, and when I put a lot of this blush on, there's too much shimmer. Sometimes I don't mind the shimmer, it gives me a nice glow without having to put on a highlighter. The package is okay, I don't hate it or love it, it's just whatever to me. The scent is kinda weird... when my sister first smelt it she was like "Ewww that smells like pads!" ..which is a like a turn off haha. I wouldn't buy this so I'm glad I got it for free. I prefer Orgasm over Coralista.
