Nov/29/2010

Although I'm kind of used to eyeliners with the classic thin brush, I was very curious about this one so I decided to buy it.
Pros:
- The felt tip brush is very easy to control, both for the begginers and the "advanced" liquid eyeliner users
- The color is very black, kind of metallic (NOT matte)
- Stays on for a long time without smudging
- The price of …

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Color Sensational-Coral Crush

4.0

I absolutely love the color. It's very bright, vibrant and really pops out. Combined with the MAC "Temperature Rising" pencil (to the beach collection) it gives you the most gorgeous coral red color.
The only downside is that like all the lipsticks from the Color Sensational collections, it's not very longlasting and it really melts in the packaging.

Blush - NYX Professional Makeup - Powder Blush - Peach

I absolutely ADORE this blush. It's matte finish, nicely pigmented, blends out well and adds a pump of color to the cheeks without going "clown". It's not really peachy, it's pink but a very medium pink - not a hot one and not a cool one, which is great for me.
Would absolutely repurchase, for the price of 4-5$ it's really a steal.

I bought this foundation because my good friend was always using it and blabbing on how amazing it is. Unfortunately, I wasn't that impressed. If applying an okay layer it doesn't cover too well, and if applying a heavy layer it gets too cakey. Luckily for me I have a pretty smooth skin, but with a little redness and this foundation does not even this out.

Pressed Powders - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Super-Blendable Powder in W2 Light Ivory

I kind of have mixed feelings about this one.
The shade is very nice, blends in well and there's no need to apply a large amount. The downside is that this powder may get pretty cakey, especially on the nose and around the nose area.
And the packaging is pretty, but very fragile. I got to expirience a lot of Loreal's "fragile plastic" packaging and it's really …

Loose Powders - Yves Saint Laurent - Semi-loose powder in #1

I really love that powder, makes my skin look very smooth. The product is really great, but the packaging is not my favorite. It's big, bulky and too "pimped" out. And this "scratchy wheel" thing lefts out a good amount of product at the end witch becomes pretty unreachable. So basically, you need to repurchase without even finishing the previous package.
Would …

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Narcissus

Now that's a true PINK color. I'm not a big fan of an "obvious" pinky pink colors, but Narcissus kinda grew on me. I like the fact that it's a cool pink shade, not warm, it works well with a pretty dramatic makeup (intense smokey eyes, violets and such). The only thing is - a very intense application of this lipstick can lead to a very cakey look, so I prefer going light …Read more

I really love this color, it's a very soft pinky brown. Browns are not my personal favorites at all and do not look best on me, but this one is absolutely gorgeous.
