What can I say that is different from what everyone else is saying? Not much. I sound like a broken record but this makes my eye makeup more vibrant and keeps it on all day. I must admit I'm not crazy about the packaging though. But for such a great product, I don't mind. I just "depotted" it into a jar. Some people said that the product will dry out but we'll see. Hope …Read more

I would never have bought this brush if it was not "perfect". For such a small brush, $27 is really expensive. Still, I ended up buying it because it was just made for me. Even though I am Asian, I still often enjoy wearing the look where the crease color is darker than the lid color. Normal crease brushes made this hard because they were just too big …

I got this brush as a gift, or else I would never have gotten it. It's not a must-have for me, so I would never have fished out $26 for it. However, now that I have it, I must admit it is a really nice brush. It is perfect for applying highlighter on the cheekbone and the packaging is really rather pretty. The bristles are really soft and silky and I have …

This is a perfect contour blush that I use everytime I put on makeup. It is a matte taupe in color, which is much better than the Bobbi Brown bronzer that I used to use (it looked weird becuase it was orangey). It makes a really big difference, but only if I compare the two sides of my face, one with contour, the other without. Once I have it on my both sides, the …

Currently, in terms of cosmetics, I have set my priorities on makeup so I need to save when it comes to brushes. However, I still want them to be of a decent quality. Posh brushes fit my criteria quite nicely! I have a total of seven of their brushes and I paid no more than $5 for any of them. They are all quite soft, and most of them do not shed. However, I would …

I got this as a gift in a set. I have had this brush for about a year, and unlike some other reviewers, mine has not shed more than maybe four bristles. It also has not lost its shape, which impresses me considering the many complaints this brush suffers. I do not know whether or not I should consider myself lucky for getting this one brush that so happens not to shed amongst many others that do …Read more

How should I put this? I absolutely LOVE this powder. The powder is really finely milled and is matte, but not fake. It sets my makeup, does not dry out my dry cheeks and keeps the shine from my nose. It may seem pricey at first (I was contemplating using Everyday Minerals Foundation as a loose powder), but after comparing the price per gram, NARS is a lot cheaper! …

I bought this after my interest in MAC eyeshadows was renewed when a friend gave me Moth Brown as a present (see my review for that and you'll know what I mean). Clue is nothing like Moth Brown. Clue has no purple undertones and is seriously lighter. Moth Brown is smokey whereas Clue is a nice neutral. It is a gray with a hint of taupe, which is what makes it …

Until now, I always was under the impression that MAC eyeshadows are horrible. When I first got into makeup, one of the first brands I tried was MAC; the company is so big that it is quite natural for a newbie to gravitate towards it. Also, I knew about MUA from the start (it was this site that got me into makeup), so I knew the concept of blending, etc already, and …
