This is what I have been looking for in a bronzer for a long time! I use is for contouring...(on my medium skin)... Beautiful.

Pros:
-Matte slightly deeper neutral bronzer: perfect for contouring for medium to dark skin
It can look natural, or make a dramatic contoured look
-Would be good for bronzing too, since its neutral
-Cute packaging!
-Long wearing: all …

I have typical asian lashes: thin and straight. I wanted to buy the waterproof one, because my mascara always tends to smudge underneath my eyes, but I didnt find one: I own the normal one. Plus, I accidently bought the shade dark brown :$ But its still nice, no complaints.

FIRST COAT: gives length and a little bit of volume, without clumping lashes together.
SECOND COAT: A …

I ordered it online to try it out, since i heard a lot of good reviews on it. My lips are not super dry or super chapped, but I like to keep them moisturized and dry skin free, so that they would look good with a lip product on.
PS: when you try it for the first time, the first layer will only be like a lip balm, the grainy part comes after a few swipes. Dont freak out! :)
Ive always …

I love this blush! I own Tickled Pink, another blush from the same line, and I do prefer Blushing rose:

PIGMENTATION: For a drugstore blush, it is rather wonderful for its pigmentation. I use the blush brush from ELF to apply it, and no prob with this blush: its not too pigmentated either. (I find it more pigmentated than Tickled Pink)

COLOR: If you only look at it from the …

-If you are looking for a bright pink shade (Nicki minaj pink), this could work.
-If you are looking for a matt lipstick, this is matt

Cons:
-It is a matt formula , and …
