I've been on a lifetime search for HG foundation(s) for my increasingly uneven toned skin despite being obsessive about sun exposure on my face sadly but I'll eventually go the laser route I'm sure. In the meantime this foundation is fantastic for providing the perfect coverage while still looking natural. That's the hardest thing for me- previous products that sufficed were …Read more

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - 182 Buffer Brush

Dec/08/2013

I bought this because Temptalia said it was a must and am so glad I did. I've got so many face brushes it's embarrassing yet this is what I use most lately. It's amazing for blending everything at the end of application. I buff away excess blush, powder and bronzer/contour in seconds with this and have flawless makeup instantly. It's the softest brush I've ever used and I …Read more

Concealers - CLARINS - Instant Concealer

Dec/07/2013

I received this as a sample recently in shade 02-medium. I will be buying a full size of it to replace the various concealers I now have by Chanel, MAC, Exuviance, Amazing Cosmetics, Graftobian, MUFE, to name just a few. I've been forever searching for a natural looking high coverage concealer for use all over including under eyes. This one is very pigmented and blends over the skin like a …Read more

Loose Powders - Coty - Airspun Translucent Extra Coverage Loose Face Powder

This is HG clearly- the best beauty bargain ever in the history of womankind. My grandmother, who sadly passed, used to use this and she, like me, had an affinity for makeup. I use the translucent sparingly as that's all that's needed after foundation and apply it with a BB velour puff. I think the flimsy one that comes with it is just ineffective. But at this cost, who cares! I …Read more

Highlighters - MAC Cosmetics - Iridescent Powder (Loose) - Golden Bronze

Love, love, LOVE this! It's an incredibly silky micro shimmery loose powder I recently tried at the MAC counter at the SA's recommendation, even though I wasn't even looking for a loose bronzing highlighting powder. I have all the Bobbi shimmer bricks and NARS highlighting multiples as well as tons of shimmery bronzer compacts. This is a pale golden bronze (hence the name)powder …Read more

I just rediscovered this while I was going through my stash. I can't believe I've been ignoring this so long. It's incredibly beautiful. It's no longer available BUT since MAC is notorious for rebranding prior products, keep an eye out for this one's return under a different name. I'm not a big blush person because I've never really (until recently) found the …Read more

I love this in Veronica's Blush, and never tried Flatter Me so I can't comment on that one but I love this VB so much that I have 3. I bought my 2 backups recently on ebay since this was LE back in March I believe. I went into Macy's looking for something else when the SA showed this to me and it was love at first sight. My skin has warm undertones and is pretty light unless …Read more

This was my first foray into the world of BB creams so I can't compare it to any others though I've read countless reiews here of other BB creams. I absolutely love this product. I am amazed by the fact a tiny amount covers my entire face perfectly. It goes on very smoothly and blends flawlessly just using my fingers. I have tried blending with a foundation brush but it's not …Read more

For the love of God I can't understand why MAC has launched this as a LE item- it is AMAZING. I had been using dark brown powder to fill in some thin brow areas for years and never realized how much better they could look with the right product. This is a game changer. Seriously. I can't speak for the lighter colors but I use the darkest one and it matches and blends into my dark brown …Read more

Regardless of the debated "true tones" others see in this essentially neutral brown based quad, it has to be tried on to be fully appreciated. I have the darkest brown eyes and typically go for neutral shades and expected this to be a great quad since all the colors looked great together in the case but when I tried them on yesterday for the first time, I was really very impressed. This …Read more
