Bronzers - MAC Cosmetics - Bronzing Powder - Refined Golden

Oct/24/2013

"Refined Golden" seems to be re-promoted for every summer collection. I bought this because the MAC mua recommended this for my NC42 skin tone. I thought it would be too dark but it seems to be just fine. I don't really use this to contour but more so a blush with bronze color. It has a tiny bit of sparkles but looks matte on skin. Compared to NARS Laguna, this is a bit more of a …Read more

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Pearlglide Lord it Up

WIth brown eyes, it's hard to find a simple brown liner to keep the eyes lined and looking sophisticated. Some browns look too dark, it could be black; some browns look exactly like your eye color, you can't even tell you're wearing eyeliner. When I went to the Shop x3, Cook x 3 event at MAC, the MUA suggested this color. It's simple, casual, not "too dark for …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Sex Machine

Hands down - the prettiest pink for the olive skinned gal! SEX MACHINE is a nice pink, mauve color. Not gonna lie, the name definitely got my attention but the color pay off is brilliant. Sometimes I wear this underneath MAC's Angel and like someone below mentioned, I wear this with MAC's ample pink on top. It is gorgeous and lasts a long time. The only thing I don't like is the …Read more

EDIT: 10/12/13:
Alright... I hate to say this but I am no longer a fan. I find that if you're great at blending or a great makeup artist, then you can handle this concealer. Don't get me wrong- I love the packaging and how there are 2 colors...I love the concept but I can't do it. I'm just your average, everyday working gal that just needs a concealer that sticks on my …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Cremesheen - Ravishing

Apr/14/2012

"It looks ORANGE but on the lips is a fabulous PEACH color..."
I encourage all olive toned, medium, and tan gals to try this color. Another underrated color lippie from MAC. The finish is a creamsheen, which lasts forever and is moisturizing. For the record - NC35-40 skin with brown eyes, and black hair. I tried MAC's "shy girl" but it seemed like such a muted color …

BB Cream - Skin79 - Super+ Beblesh Balm BB Triple Function Hot Pink SPF25/PA++

I really wanted this product to work so badly but unfortunately, it gave me bad whiteheads and cystic acne along my chin, jaw line and cheeks. I cleaned my brushes regularly, practiced good hygiene, took my vitamins, drank water, etc... but I feel like within the 2 weeks I used this, it made my skin worse.

It's been about a month and my skin is finally getting back to normal …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Please Me

Feb/25/2012

I'm in the minority here and am not into this lipstick. I have olive-tan skin with black eyes, brown hair. I love the color itself but on my pigmented lips, it's just so "snooki" on me. I added "subculture" liner at an attempt to make it look alright but it just doesn't work on me. My lips are too pouty like Lana del rey and am not feeling it. Fanfare, Angel …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Amplified Lipstick - Vegas Volt

4.0

Jan/31/2012

"Vegas Volt" is a true coral for those who have pigmented lips. I was terrified with how "bright neon" it looked but with application, it's the kind of coral you see stars on the red-carpet wear. I have olive skin and it's beautiful (not neon on me), especially with bronzer and MAC's woodwinked eyeshadow. It's the "cherry on top" for a nice summer …Read more

Lip Treatments - Chapstick - Medicated

Oct/01/2011

An oldie but a goodie. These days, (I feel that) we're all consumed with "the best lipstick, the best lip balm", etc... With this kind of motivation, the price isn't even considered anymore and it's definitely all about the brand and the hype. I'm a lip junkie and I admit, it was all about "which brand" of lip balm, lipstick, or lip gloss but good ol …Read more

Lip Gloss - NARS Cosmetics - Orgasm

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/15/2011

NARS products are so expensive ($24 for lipgloss, really?!) and it's definitely tempting to buy a cheaper dupe from MAC but I have to say NARS ORGASM is one NARS product I would not mind splurging on. I have olive skin tone with yellow undertones and this is a nice "pink" color. It looks very natural and not too "Barbie" like. The peach tint gives the skin a …Read more
