Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Sheertone in Pinch O'Peach

5.0

Apr/26/2014

This is the most natural and versatile shade for my NC30 skin tone. It's a warm pink that's completely matte. I love how one dip into the pan with my brush gives my cheeks a pop of color that looks so natural. I actually get a nice and healthy glow from this without needing to use any shimmer on my face. This is also the only blush in my collection that lasts all day on me without any …Read more

Lips - NYX Professional Makeup - Soft Matte Lip Cream (All)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/26/2014

If you're looking for a lip product that will last all day, this is the one to pick up! These Soft Matte Lip Creams will cling onto the lips without drying them out. However, I tend to have abnormally dry lips, so I always take an extra precaution by applying lip balm generously first and letting it sink in before I apply the Soft Matte Lip Cream. I have the shades San Paolo, a deep rose …Read more

Brows - Prestige - Brow Perfection Pencil

5.0

Apr/26/2014

An absolute HG brow pencil for me! I use it in "Light/Medium" for my black brows for a more natural look, and I have "Medium/Dark" for special occasions when I don't want my makeup to be washed out under flash photography. I altnernate between this and MAC Coquette as a brow powder, but I always go for this brow pencil to QUICKLY create well-shaped and polished brows on …Read more

Concealers - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Finish Concealer

Apr/13/2014

This is always a staple in my makeup bag. I've experiemented with other concealers but I always come back to this because it lasts the longest, is so easy to use, and has the best match for my golden skin time (NC30). I usually apply it with my ring finger for both my undereye circles and blemishes, but sometimes I use a synthetic bristle brush for ore precise application. I find that it …Read more

Liquid - REVLON - PhotoReady Makeup [DISCONTINUED]

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2014

There's something to be said about a foundation that I consistently used for a period of time even though it made me break out. The cover and finish of the Revlon PhotoReady is amazing. I am NC25-30 and I used Golden Beige. A thin layer already covers every single flaw and has a brightening/glowing effect that still feels matte to the touch. I pulled a lot of all-nighters during college and …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Patentpolish Lip Pencil (All Shades)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2014

I collect chubby lip pencils and MAC's Patentpolish lip pencils are at the top of my list in terms of cuteness and how convenient they are. All of the shades I tested at the counter gave a nice sheer wash of color with one thin layer and could build up to a more vibrant look with a second layer. I have this in the shade Spontaneous and it's gives off a nice mauve color that makes my …Read more

Hair Treatments - LUSH - Jasmine & Henna Fluff Eaze Hair Treatment

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/15/2014

I used Lush's Fluff Eaze this morning, and now my hair is the shiniest that it has ever been! I have been pretty happy with my normal haircare routine (SLS-free shampoo and a conditioner with lots of coconut oil and shea butter), but lately I've noticed that my ends tend to get pretty dry. This stuff hydrated and softened those ends like I have never seen before. The shine in my hair is …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - MAC Cosmetics - Prep + Prime CC Colour Correcting Broad Spectrum SPF 30

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/04/2014

This is a color correcting primer that comes in a black squeeze-tube form. I have the shade Adjust, which is described on the website as a "peach beige." The other shades are Neutralize (yellow), Illuminate (lavendar), and Recharge (apricot).

I chose Adjust because I thought it was the closest match to my NC30 skin tone, and I wanted this to be an all-around priming product …

Brows - Too Faced - Bulletproof Brows Eyebrow Definer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/18/2014

I have black brows and NC30 skin with warm golden undertones. The Too Faced Bulletproof Brows in Universal Brunette suits me well because it's a great dark brown tempered with a lot of taupe to keep it looking natural. I apply it with the accompanying angled brush using soft strokes, and I find that I do have to use the spoolie end to give my brows a good brushing after I'm done to tone …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Coquette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/18/2014

I have finally found it -- the perfect eyebrow shade for my black brows! I must have tried up to a 100 products by this point, but I was always searching for The One. My quest led to me brow pencils, brow powders, and brow gels/creams, but nothing looks as natural, lasts as long, AND is as easy to apply as MAC's eyeshadow in Coquette. The color is wonderful darkened taupe-brown shade. For …Read more
