Aug/19/2013

This product is life-changing. Revolutionary. To me, at least, a newbie to translucent powder.For reference, I am NC20 with combo-oily skin. Here is why I absolutely adore this product.

First, it's not *bad* to carry around. I say this cautiously, but I've had a pretty good exeprience so far. I know a lot of people don't like the loose because it gets everywhere but if …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Satin Taupe

Feb/23/2013

I had been very interested in this shade for quite a while because of all the hype, but was disappointed when I first played around with it. I wasn't able to really make this shadow work on my NC20 complexion. It turned more purple than taupe, and looked kind of ashy too. However, I find that placing a lighter, cooler shade (like Naked Lunch) helps bring out the taupe in the shadow rather …Read more

Highlighters - GUERLAIN - Meteorites Travel Touch in Mythic 01

Feb/15/2013

I honestly don't get this product. I am a real highlighter h00r but still am totally baffled over the hype over Guerlain Ballz and Meteorites. It gives a very powdery/glittery/sparkly highlight that looks artificial . I have combo skin, and don't find this to really help my skin look more dewy. It doesn't help prolong foundation wear either. I guess if you are a fan of the …Read more

This serum is amazing! I got a sample as a GWP but fell in love with it that I had to get the full size. 2 drops of this and you're skin will sing hallelujah. You can instantly feel your skin sinking this serum in and it really helped with my skintone and redness (I am in my early 20's so can't really say what it does for lines/maintaining youth). Applying this before foundation …Read more

My favorite MAC e/s! I'm NC 20, Asian, and love this to slightly deepen the outer part of my eye. Combining this with a matte nude tone and a brown eyeliner, I get the most sultry yet natural looking eye. It's not the most pigmented or kapow type of eyeshadow but it's definitely a great shadow for beginners or people who like light, natural looking makeup. Love!

Highlighters - Dior - Shimmer Powder 002 Amber Diamond, Spring 08 [DISCONTINUED]

Nov/09/2012

Looking for a highlighter that isn't too chunky or obvious, even with a heavy hand? This is the stuff right here. Seriously!
I had heard a lot of raves for this so I gave it a try while I was at a Dior counter. I wasn't really expecting much because all the other hyped highlighters I'd tried (BB shimmerbrick, MAC soft and gentle) were really chunky or glittery/obvious on me. I …

Polishes - OPI - Go on Green

Oct/17/2012

What a fun colored, unique polish! This color reminds me a lot of a mermaid's fin as it has a bit of green, lavender and silver reflect going on. I would have never purchased this color on my own but it's been a great and fun suprise to my somewhat monotonous nail polish collection. Very sheer so you need to add 3 to 4 layers to get the color you want but it's very workable and …Read more

This brush set is perfection. I had been eyeing this set for quite a while. The buffing brush and 109 dupe were too intriguing to pass up. Bought the set from iherb.com, and compared to my local drugstore that carries this for about 40 bucks (I live in Korea), so I got quite a good deal. I highly recommend the site for those living aboad!
A little break down of the brushes:

Sep/04/2012

Dry skinned gals, BEWARE. I fell in love with this product at first try and began preaching this stuff to lots of my friends. I also gave a tub of this to my mom, but she hated it. And I mean, absolutely hated it. I should have realized that because this mask is so drying and deep cleaning, it wouldn't have been everyone's cup of tea. I've been using this for a few weeks and have …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Falsies Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/15/2012

Really recommend it for those looking for a mascara that thickens your lashes. I wouldn't go as far and say that this makes my lashes actually look like falsies, but they help bring a little oomph to them and make them tons more noticeable. This does clump if you're not careful though, so applying little by little in layers rather than lather it on all at once is really important …Read more
