I wore this for the first time yesterday with no smudging. And I fell asleep on the couch, work up in the middle of the night to wash my face, and my mascara was still holding on strong. This is definitely fantastic for work days when you don’t have time to worry about your mascara smudging down your eyes. It is fantastic for lengthening, and just alright for volume. For me the staying power puts …Read more
This only looks good when I'm tan (NC25-30). At my normal skin tone it blends in with my shin too much and looks like concealer lips (NC20). BUT the formula is fantastic. It's comfortable but very long lasting for a regular bullet lipstick. Less slippery than the Rouge Volupte formula and also less drying than the RV formula.
I own these in Trap and Midi. I have never worn other liquid lipsticks, but I like these a lot. To prepare my lips, I use a lip scrub and a good, thick lip balm while I apply my other makeup. Then I wipe off the balm with a tissue and apply a liner to get the shape I want, and then I apply the LL in a thin layer. Then I keep my mouth open for about 30 seconds to allow it to fully dry. These are …Read more
This palette is wonderful. I am NC20 and own in in the shade 40. The contour is nice an neutral, not too gray or orange toned. The yellow highlight is great under the eyes. The powders themselves are super smooth and creamy and buttery. Just beautiful. The pigmentation and blendability are fantastic. This palette is a good choice for those who don't want/need 6 shades in a palette for …Read more
This is my latest HG concealer. The NARS radiant creamy concealer used to be my favorite. (that is still an awesome concealer, but this one has a more natural finish). This concealer is medium to full coverage, lightweight, non-creasing, and does not make my under eye look dry. That is a huge feat! I wear a foundation shade NC20 and I wear this concealer in light warm. There are enough shades in …Read more
I like this mascara a lot. It is a thick formula, but the comb type brush helps to separate the lashes. This mascara is quite dramatic and I would not recommend it to beginners or anyone who isn't "good" at applying mascara. The brush takes a little bit of getting used to, but it pays off once you have the hang of it! This mascara is good for both volume and length. The color is …Read more
I was not impressed with this. This makes my lips feel nice for about 5 minutes and then when it dries it leaves my lips very dry and I even experience peeling. Maybe I personally just have a reaction to one of the ingredients but IMO you can get a much better product than this lip balm. It does not give long term moisture and you have to apply about once per hour.
This is yet another great palette from UD. It is made up of rose toned neutrals, that can work for any skin tone. A lot of people think they can't wear pink eyeshadow but that's not true! The mix of pinks and browns in this palette can make countless looks. I've used it on myself and two of my friends, we all have different coloring and it looked great on EVERYONE. The only color …Read more
I use this to set my makeup and I have dry skin. It works to prevent creasing under my eyes and to provide a soft focus effect on my face. It doesn't really mattify the face or control oil, so you won't like this if you're really oily. Also this will cause flashback in photos. But for everyday it's a great setting powder for dry to normal skin!
