After I bought this palette, I keep shopping for more neutrals that I think I may need and I just don't need them! Even though some of the shades are too light for my use, most look beautiful, have great staying power, and are easily buildable. I particularly like using buck as a base color and hustle for the crease for a smoky look.

I love, love, LOVE this blush. The color looks beautiful on my darker skin tone and shows up more plummy then a pinky purple. Even with a warm undertone, the cool color still looks great on. The staying power is pretty good, and the shade is quite buildable. I would say you get about 4 to 5 hours of full color.

Prior to using this product in Martinique, I was using Bobbi Brown's Tinted Moisturizer in Deep. This product is far superior IMO. While the BB Tinted Moisturizer slid right off my skin, this seeps right in leaving my skin feeling buttery smooth and moisturized. I find the lemony scent pleasant and not too overwhelming. I really enjoy using this product on those nights when I would like a …Read more

I really love this nailpolish, and here's why:
APPLICATION: The brush is great. It makes it so easy to use the 3 stroke application technique. On most nails, it really goes on with one stroke. It is so easy to put on, if you do have narrow fingers, however, I can see the width of the brush being a problem.
COLOR: The color range for this nailpolish is beautiful! While they do have …

I think this blush could look great on anyone. It is hyper-pigmented and adds such a beautiful glow to my cheeks. Don't let the orange in the pan scare you! It's really a golden gleam that looks so beautiful and natural. A word of warning though ladies, you need THE lightest hand to apply it. I would imagine that for women with lighter-skin, this would apply even more. However, because …Read more

After going through 3 tubes of DiorShow and DiorShow Black Out and being truly upset when the tubes dried up and went clumpy on me before I could get through even half of the tube, I got fed up and said "To heck with it!! Back to the drawing board!! (and by drawing board I mean drugstore)." There I came across an old friend from high school, Maybelline Full 'N Soft Mascara.
I …

I am so pleased with this purchase. As someone new to the world of makeup, I thought it would be a good idea to purchase a palette to learn with. This one is great for that. Most of the shades have glitter and shimmer to them, so if you are not a shimmer person, this palette isn't for you. Also, some shades can be chalkier than others, but generally, they all show up, even against my darker …Read more

I bought this today thinking that on my dark skin, it would show up to be a darker berry colored gloss. Boy was I wrong! This came out looking lighter than in the tube on me: very pink and very clownish! After wiping most of it off, I got it down to a much more wearable pink. I definitely love the texture of the gloss on my lips (very smooth, not at all sticky), and the scent was quite pleasant …Read more

I really like this product! As this is my first tinted moisturizer, however, I can definitely imagine that there is a better product out there (thus the 4 out of 5 lippies).
I have dry skin and very few blemishes, and I wanted this product to even out my skin (I have some discoloration on my cheeks) and the redness I have around my nose. This product does these things pretty well with …

I bought this nail polish a few days ago after reading all of the online hype surrounding the product and pining for a pretty light, baby-blue(ish) color. When I got to the store and saw the bottle, I was slightly disappointed. In the bottle, to me it looks like a dingy, yellow stained gray blue, but because I had read sooo much hype, I decided that I would still give it a …Read more
