I mix W4 with a little bit of W3 for my NC35-NC40 skin (for reference).

PROS:
I love how this foundation is sheer, doesn't feel heavy at all, it evens out my skin tone and any minor discoloration but still shows my freckles. It covers my pores well and looks completely natural. I have good skin with minor pimples occasionally and major dark circles so I still need a …

Love love love this perfume! I normally buy the smallest bottle of EDPs/EDTs available because I like to rotate my perfumes everyday, but I bought a 3.4oz bottle for this one, and I don't regret it because it's such a nice smell. It's fresh, like you just step out of the shower, a bit flowery but not too much and not too overpowering. I can't stand loud perfumes. The scent …Read more

Pressed Powders - MAC Cosmetics - Blot Powder - Medium/Dark

May/26/2009

I have combo skin, but mosly oily on cheeks and t-zone. I used to use blotting paper a few times during the day to take care of oilies but it took away my foundation too. So when I discovered MAC Blot Powder I couldn't leave home without this. It's in my everyday purse, a very good powder to use for blotting. It doesn't impress me on setting my foundation because I prefer a …Read more

This is an overall decent mascara. I needed one for my everyday use, hence I stayed away from those mascaras that give you crazy-volumed lashes such as DiorShow. This doesn't clump, give me nice lengths and some decent volume. It doesn't run or smudge but I do find that on hot days it sorta imprints on my lower lid and gets into my fine lines. So I kinda have that Twiggy look, which is …Read more

Oh what a pretty color. I have had this for a long time, bought it on a whim after the makeover when the collection came out and never really used it until today! I never did find a way to apply this shadow - Do I out it on the crease? Outer corner of my lid? As a wash? It didn't look right at all. The only thing that prevented me from swapping fertile away is that it looks so pretty in the …Read more

I don't care for lipgloss generally because everything sticks to it but this juicy tube is so juicy it deserves some raves. The color is very pigmented hot pink with golden shimmer to it. Very very beautiful. I have this in my everyday handbag!

I can't believe I've never reviewed this blush. I've been using this for three years and I LOVE it. It gives my skin an instant pop, a healthy glow and a natural blushing look. The price, well I have to admit this is the most expensive blush I've ever bought *gulp* but I can't live without it I'll buy it again when I run out. The color is buildable so you can always …Read more

My HG foundation! Now I have to agree with one of the reviewers here that this is the weirdest foundations I have ever tried. When you see it in the bottle it looks really dark but it's different on the skin. It's both liquid and gel. Hmm... But I finally found the tricks to make this foundation work to its full advantage, in my case. I'm NC40, I have almost olive skintone, medium …Read more

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15 Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

First of all, it's NC40 looks a bit orangey on me. I am the exact shade of Select SPF15 NC40. But that's not why I gave it only a lippie. This looks okay when I apply it but after about an hour or so I caught my reflection on the mirror the foundation (which had become much more orangey by now) seemed to melt around my nose and boy was I so embarrased that I'd been walking around …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Great Lash Mascara

May/16/2007

This mascara is OK - it separates my lashes very nicely and it doesn't clump on me. It gives me beautiful lashes - perfect for daytime use. It's not for someone who's looking for a dramatically full lashes however. I took away two lippies because I have to be very careful when applying otherwise I risk smudging it on around my eyes AND because it gets on my bottom lid a little …Read more
