My most loved pallette. My favorite palette since the day it came out.

The shadows are Very pigmented, buttery feeling and smooth. Easily blends with little effort. The colors are stunningly gorgeous and yet, can be used for a subtle eye look or dramatic. To me, it's a very "romantic" pallette(both in color and theme) that's on heavily on the warm side which I …

Mascara - Lancôme - Definicils Waterproof High Definition Mascara

Best mascara for stick straight, stubborn to hold a curl, short lashes. I only wear waterproof as it is the only type of mascara to hold my lashes and to take the hot and humid weather where I live. This is the best I’ve tried so far. Reasons:

-Truly holds a curl. I curl my lashes(always) and set it with mascara. Many mascaras, even if they say “waterproof” will cause my lashes to …

Did not work with my skin tone. I wanted to like this as I loved it in the pan and on many photos online. I have dark tan skin with olive undertones, MAC NC42-45, NARS Syracuse, EsteeLauder Warmbronze, Fenty 300s range.

The colors made me look like I have bruised eyes. It’s exactly the color of my shadows and dark circles that I cover up with concealer. This Was more cool, grey and …

Worst shampoo I have ever used. Along with the conditioner. First off Im used to sulfate free products but this did not lather at all. It was hard to rinse from my hair. Made my hair feel very rough too. It Left my roots oily and worst of all.....ITCHY AND INFLAMMED. I have never ever broken out or have itched at all from any shampoo. Broke my scalp out in bumps and all along on my ears. Stay …Read more

My ultimate favorite nailpolish of all time. If I had to wear only one nail polish for the rest of my life, it would be this. First off, I do not like nail polish. I especially do not like colored nail polish. If i do wear nail polish, it is either nude(preferably sheer), or clear. I like the minimalist look, the clean and manicured look, or the "hand model" nail look …Read more

Love this primer!

I was hesitant because of the purple color but it did not turn my face purple or blueish! I have tan skin with yellow undertones(MAC NC40/42, NARS Stromboli-Syracruse, Becca Olive-Bamboo) which im fine with and I didnt want a purple colored primer to completely obstruct my skin color. As I blended this primer into my skin, there is no trace of color and I can …

As a tan girl who LOVES nude lipstick, this is one of my favorite beige/tan nudes.

Very pigmented , thick yet smooth, not matte but for a non matte lipstick, it stays on a pretty long time. It smells like waxy vanilla and I am not a sensitive person so the smell is enjoyable.

The color is the perfect warm medium/medium deep beige with warm undertones that brightens my …

I wish there was a maybe to "buy again"

Pros- Medium coverage. Great color selection especially for those with strong yellow undertones like myself(nc42 I wear Stromboli&syracruse). Matte, smooth, not chalky. Decent staying power. Great for setting or touch ups

Cons- I seriously hate this packing. I am a huge fan of NARS, but they have one of the worst …

Have not bought a concealer in a while, while I love NARS Creamy Radiant so I thought I try this too. Impressed! and I like this better than the other concealer!

More coverage, full coverage, stays put, and looks very natural. I apply this under my eyes and other areas of my face. A little goes a long way. I dont find this cakey or dry at all, but I do moisturize heavily and I live in …

Calling olive and yellow undertones! This is a foundation that matches!

I am a mixed race, tan olive/yellow undertoned woman. I wear MAC NC35-42, NARS Stromboli-Syracruse, Becca Ultimate Creme in Olive-Bamboo. Finding foundations that are not pink, red, or too orange is a challenge. No matter how close I get to finding the right shade, something is off and most of the time it is the …
