Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - My Favorite Pink - Dazzleglass Creme

Dec/10/2009

Unlike traditional MAC Dazzleglasses these are NOT sticky at all! I really don't mind the sticky thing but it does get annoying when my hair get stuck to my lips repeatedly.Pinks never show up well on me because of my skin color and my pigmented lips but what can I say? I'm always pining away for the perfect pink to come along and sweep me off my feet! I have to say I was really …Read more

Scrubs - MAC Cosmetics - Volcanic Ash Exfoliator

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/10/2009

This stuff really rocks! It leaves skin so clean and soft. What really sets it apart from other exfoliators is the foaming action. Even though it only foams a little bit, I think foaming makes the exfoliating process feel bubbly. It's a really nice unique feeling. Most other exfoliators just feel like I'm sandpapering my skin.

There is a strong smoky smell to this and it …

Liquid - shu uemura - Face Architect Smoothing Fluid Foundation ] [DISCONTINUED]

I've put this foundation on a variety of ways and there's just NO WAY to mess it up. I've used only my fingers to dab & smooth it on when I'm in a rush, I've used a sponge applicator to smooth it on, I've stippled it on with the MAC 187, and I've even used the Shu Natural 18 Foundation brush to apply it. However you choose to apply this, it goes on …Read more

Great oil-base eye makeup remover. Does not sting. Works great on water-proof mascaras too. Love how the bottle has a small opening so you don't spill/waste any of the product when you're using it.

To use, shake the bottle and soak a cotton pad. Hold the soaked cotton pad to your eye for about 5-10 seconds and then wipe away. Repeat if needed.

Masks - Mary Kay - Clarifying Mask Formula 3

I really like this mask. It's inexpensive and it does what I need it to do - draw out the impurities from my face. I had to deduct 1 lippie because it does dry out and tighten skin. I like to apply to my T-zone only because of this but overall great results and a great price!

Primer/ Corrector - GIVENCHY - Mister Mat Mattifying Foundation Primer

Received a sample of this at Sephora but was not wowed by it at all. The silicone texture feels heavy when applied felt like I was plastering it on - 2 lippie deduction. It did not glide on as easy as the Body Shop's Vitamin C Skin Boost which I've been using as a primer. Also it made me oily in somewhere between 3-4 hours so another lippie deducted.

Mascara - Giorgio Armani - Eyes to Kill Mascara

Sep/23/2009

Truly weightless mascara - I always forget that I'm wearing mascara with this on. Does not flake even after a 9 hour day and is easily removed. I had to deduct 1 lippie because it does not provide any curl but I can eaisly remedy that by crazy-curling my lashes with my shu curler. Only other gripe is that it can get a bit clumpy during application but I think that's my fault. I've …Read more

Concealers - Bobbi Brown - Face Touch Up Stick

Sep/23/2009

Great for concealing blemishes. The best way I've found to apply on blemishes and acne scars is apply primer, then lightly dot BB Face Touch Up Stick onto the blemish and if needed blend in the edges. Then I apply SKII Air-Touch Foundation (shade BP-4) on top and it looks flawless.
Very creamy but does not clog pores. Stays put all day, none of the product slides off. Small and …

Sep/22/2009

My HG foundation! This works best when I moisturize and prime my skin and apply concealer over blemishes - my skin looks absolutely flawless! I even use it alone on casual days as it improves the "look" of my skin tone.
I am a MAC NC25 and I use the shade BP-4 (Beige Pink). Asia counters offer a lot more color choices but not this one - I dunno why. It oxidizes red if it's …
