UD's website describes this as "rich brown matte". It's a deep neutral brown, no overwhelming hints of warm red or cool grey. It reminds me of 90% cocoa dark chocolate. With matte pencils we sometimes think dragging, dry, stiff pencils but this is extremely creamy, no force needed to get the product onto your skin …

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Underground

UD's website describes this as "metallic taupe". It's a very true taupe, meaning equal parts brown & grey, in turn meaning it could work on warm or cool toned ladies equally well. Very subtle, low-key, yet sophisticated shade for a neutral look.

Setting time is about 15 seconds, meaning right after …

UD's website describes this as "metallic taupe-pewter shimmer". It's very metallic and very shimmery, what this means is that it can look like a silver sheen from certain angles of lighting. However the shade itself is a beautiful cool-toned taupe with lots of grey next to some brown. The shimmer is so fine that you …

UD's website describes this as "brown with teeny gold glitter", very spot on. What I'd add is that it's very much a neutral brown without too much warm red or cool grey, looks like a Kit Kat bar with visible, individual specks of tiny glitter (as opposed to evenly distributed shimmer). The glitter does NOT budge …

<p>COLOR: This is a beautiful true champagne, ie. pinkish flesh-toned beige topped with cool-golden shimmer. The shimmer is pretty BAMinyoface but because the individual sparkles of shimmer are tiny and evenly distributed so as to blend into "one" (as opposed to large individual sparkles here and there), the result doesn't …

<p>Desire is a matte, bright, saturated cotton-candy pink with intense pigmentation. As ridunkulously intimidating as it looks in the pan, you can easily achieve a subtle effect with a light hand: it blends seamlessly into the skin and can lift up the whole face on a tired, sallow kind of day. A skunk brush like MAC187 would make application …

<p>This is an intensely saturated corally dark pink that turns to a ruddy red on my pale skintone (NC20) throughout the day, hence 1 lippie off. However I can see this working beautifully on darker skintones as the shade itself is a very natural, complex type of coral/peachy pink that resembles a real blush, as opposed to a flat, monotone shade …

<p>I've always steered clear of peaches/oranges/corals as I thought they would clash with my cool-toned face, but this pure peach magnificence that is Gina, has proved me wrong. Even though NARS blushes are known for its crazy pigmentation that can be easy to overdo, it's not a problem with Gina. The colour itself isn't saturated …

Loose Powders - La Mer - Skincolor De La Mer - The Powder - Poudre de La Mer [DISCONTINUED]

<P>My skin: I have the kind of combo skin where the oily pores sucks in whatever product I have on, mixes it with some sticky sebum, then spews it back out onto the drier skin surface for the sebum/powder paste to dry up, resulting in blotchy cakiness by 1pm, so the majority of the time my face looks dirty and messy. But even on skin as …

Lip Treatments - MAC Cosmetics - Tendertone Lip Balm SPF 12 - EZ Baby

<p>Most flattering nude I've ever found for my pale face (on which most nudes tend to look dead dull). It's milky beige with pink tones, pretty sheer so it's hard to overdo, very fool-proof. Just the right amount of gloss, not too shiny like a lipgloss, not too dull like chapstick. Extremely moisturizing, heals the most …
