This has got to be one of the best highlighting shades of all time. I absolutely love anything gold but at first I thought this was going to be too stark on me since it's such a pale gold and I have an olive complexion but boy am I happy I bought this, it is utter PERFECTION! It is now the only inner corner shade I wear, and when applied lightly it works great on the brow bone and also as a …Read more

After having not so great results with other matte eye shadows from MAC I was very hesitant to purchase this but everyone kept raving on about it so I took the plunge and picked this up. And I have to say... It sure has impressed me! Such a beautiful texture, pigmented and easy to blend. I use this in my crease when I'm going for a warm look and it's just perfect. I have an olive …Read more

I have gone through numerous cans of this in the Spray version and for the price this is a great fake tan. I naturally have a medium olive skin tone but I love adding that extra glow for special events since flash photography can really wash you out. I stand in my shower on a dark towel and work in sections by spraying this and then buffing it with a tanning mitt. You can see the color as you …Read more

Polishes - Essie - Bahama Mama

The picture above looks nothing like it does IRL ^

It is a deep purple with a berry undertone. This was my first nail polish from Essie and I like it but I don't love it. It can be quite streaky and it requires 2-3 coats for it to be opaque. With my olive skin tone I've realized I prefer a deep wine red compared to this dark purple shade.

Wear time is standard but …

This past year I discovered the amazingly long lasting Scandaleyes Waterproof Soft Kohl Kajal's from Rimmel and I had this Soft Kohl sitting in my makeup drawer untouched from a gift with purchase. One day I decided to try it and I actually really like it for a softer black.

I started having problems with the Scandaleyes liner in Black gunking up in my inner tear ducts which I …

I decided to try this foundation out after seeing reviews that the shade 220 Natural Beige is great shade for medium olive skin. I bought this knowing that it was notorious for having a very dewy finish but I was curious about the shade.

Skin Type/Tone/Concerns
I have combination-oily skin with a medium olive skin tone (MAC NC37/NARS Stromboli). My t-zone tends to get oily and I …

Quite opaque with just one coat but looks much better with two. This is a stunning bright pastel pink, a step up from the standard light pink. As always, OPI's packaging is great. I love the brush as it fans out perfectly for easy application. If you're looking for a light pink with that bit of 'something-something', I would highly recommend this shade!

Finally I have found my HG nude lipstick!!!!!!!!!!

I have an olive medium-tan skin tone, NC30-40 depending on the season and like everyone else I have searched for the perfect nude to suit me and this is definitely it.

MAC describes 'Cherish' as a 'soft muted peachy-beige' which I agree with but I can also see a slight rosey tone to it as well. It is a …

Primer/ Corrector - Unlisted Brand - Face of Australia - Face Base Primer

Mar/18/2014

I can't say this does anything more than what a good moisturiser would. It has a lotion texture with a very slight silicone feel, so it does provide a nice smooth base for foundation to glide on, however this does nothing to control my oily t-zone which is what I need from a primer. I think this could work well for normal-dry skin types to prep the skin so that the foundation doesn't …Read more

Eye Primer - theBalm Cosmetics - Put A Lid On It Eyelid Primer

Mar/05/2014

Hate to rain on this product's parade, but this primer doesn't work at all for me.

I have oily lids so reduced creasing and increased longevity/color vibrancy are important to me with an eye primer. I was really excited to try this after seeing good reviews online, but unfortunately I found that this doesn't improve the pigmentation & vibrancy of eye shadows, I …
