I have these in Manhattan Mauve, Denim, & Pastel. Mauve is “my” colors! I wish I could’ve found the brown one. I got these off Ebay. They were $4 for 2 of the kits & $3 for the 3rd. Get rid of the brushes lol they suck! The products are good quality cute little palettes #winning you can still get them off eBay.

Definitely my favorite quick dry top coat, and I lost count of how many I've tried. Inexpensive, easy to find, easy to thin if necessary, and it never goes cloudy like that overpriced quick dry brand so many seem to like. The only downside is that I now have a ridiculous number of barely used other quick dry top coats sitting in a Helmer that will never be used, as well as a nearly full 4 oz bottle of quick dry drops. I paint my nails every other day, and NYC never fails me. I also find if i smudge wet polish before I get the top coat on, I can often just dab more color on the smudge and when I put the NYC Quick Dry on, it melts the 'patch' into the original coats of polish. Love it.

I like this pallette. The colors are pretty pigmented. I think it’s a pretty palette and great for beginners. I don’t love the darker colors. They’re more bluish grey which is odd and not super flattering on my olive skin tone. Nice pallette though.

I recently rediscovered this drugstore classic in my stash. Many years ago, before I was comfortable wearing red lipstick out of the house, I tried Retro Red and did not care much for it. I think I gave it away, but then I bought another tube just to repeat the process again. However, a couple of years ago, after I became a red lipstick connoisseur, I picked up a third tube at CVS to see if I was wrong about this shade since it has been enduringly popular. It isn't the best red in my stash, but it could be a good workhorse every day kind of red for sure. It's pretty, flattering, and feels comfortable on the lips. Paired with liner it is fairly long lasting, given the price point. The packaging is utterly terrible, but the product inside is good enough that I don't care much.

I don't hate this foundation, but I don't think I would buy it again. I have it in 102 Natural beige which is a pretty good match for me (im about nc35). Ive been liking stick foundations lately, purely for the convenience factor of doing your foundation in 30 seconds when im in a rush. I like the bobbi brown stick foundation but it is pretty expensive, especially considering that stick foundations dont generally contain much product (0.25 oz) and finish quickly. It does not, however, have lasting power and after a few hours the coverage is significantly less, which sucks considering it is already barely medium coverage to begin with (and i do set it with my usual powder). I definitely will use it until it is finishes since the color match is good, but i wont be wearing it anywhere if I need my foundation to last a decent amount of time.
