Highlighters - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer

When I first got this product, I absolutely loved it. It gave the subtle glow that I was looking for, without making me look glittery or sparkly and the price is great. My favorite way to use it is to mix it with foundation. It sheers out my foundation and provides a "lit from within" look. It reminds me of MAC's Strobe Cream, which I loved, but the fragrance in it bothered my …Read more

Palettes - Paula's Choice - Blush It On Contour Palette

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/19/2016

This is a beautiful palette for those with pale to light-medium skin tones. It has one highlighter shade, one bronzer, two warm blush shades and two neutral blush shades. Some of the blushes would show up on darker skin tones but the bronzer and highlighter shades may not work. The formula of these powders is superb and it feels very creamy. The bronzer and all of the blush shades are matte but …Read more

Blush - Ben Nye - Creme Rouge Wheel

I love the formula on this cream blush -- it's creamy, blends like a dream and melts into my skin. It is much easier to blend than my Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge, which can sometimes be patchy. Once applied, it’s very realistic and it looks like skin. To apply, I use a clean metal spatula, scoop out a tiny amount and use my fingers to blend. After I'm done, I set it with powder and it lasts …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Sonia Kashuk - Synthetic Flat Top Multipurpose Brush

Jan/10/2016

This is my all-time favorite makeup brush. I use it to blend cream and liquid makeup products. I do not use it to apply foundation, just to blend it -- this helps to avoid soaking up product in the brush. So I dot my cream foundation on my face, blend it and then I use this brush to really buff it into my skin. It gives me that flawless, airbrushed look. I also like to use this to blend the edges …Read more

Crème - RCMA Makeup - Color Process Foundation

5.0

Jan/09/2016

I have been using this foundation for a couple of weeks now and I am in love. It is the most natural-looking foundation I've ever used. I think this is because this product is so pigmented that only a tiny bit is needed and therefore you don't see product on the skin; you just see skin. Having said that, it's probably not for everyone because it requires learning how to use it and …Read more

Lip Gloss - L'Oreal Paris - Colour Riche Caresse Wet Shine Stain [DISCONTINUED]

5.0

Oct/16/2015

I am very much in love with these lip products. I have three shades: Lilac Ever After, Rose On and On and Pink Persistence. These three shades are pretty light and sheer, which makes them very natural-looking on light skin. I have applied two coats when I want more color and they do darken a bit after they set. Darker skin tones or those who want more noticeable color would probably want to …Read more

Mascara - FLOWER Beauty - Extreme Measures Lengthening Mascara-Black

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/21/2014

I purchased this mascara because I needed a new one and this was only $3.50, but I think the normal price is around $7.00. First of all, this is very natural looking, so don't expect a lot of length/volume without lots of coats. I don't mind that myself, as I prefer a no-makeup makeup look, but this is not the mascara you want for drama. It doesn't clump, which I appreciate …Read more

Blush - Palladio Beauty - Herbal Matte Blush

5.0

Dec/17/2014

This is my first purchase from Palladio and I must say that I'm impressed. It's very difficult to find a truly matte blush, so I had to try it out, especially since Revlon discontinued their matte blush line.

First, I must say that I love, love, love the packaging! It's sturdy without being bulky and doesn't take up tons of space in my makeup case. Also, I like the …

Crème - REVLON - ColorStay Whipped Crème Makeup

Nov/07/2014



I had to try this foundation after the hype on MU board and I really do like it. It reminds me of Revlon ColorStay Mineral Mousse Makeup (discontinued) except that it's less drying and more comfortable to wear. It blends nicely, although you have to work fast, because once it's set, there's no going back. It's very long-wearing and on my normal to combination skin …

Blush - Cargo Cosmetics - Swimmables Water Resistant Blush - Bali

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/13/2013

I love Cargo blushes, so when they came out with the new water-resistant line of blushes, I had to try one. I chose the color Bali, which is a light, soft rosy pink with a hint of beige, and I just love it. It's very natural-looking on my NC15 skin. As with all Cargo blushes that I've tried, the texture is divine. It applies smoothly and gives me a very believable-looking pink flush. As …Read more
