Wow. Looks so natural, like you're in a lingerie commercial. I've never tried on a blush as nice as this, not from Mac, Bobbi Brown, or Nars. My skin tone is yellow-based, warm-toned. I am Light on a scale of Fair, Light, Medium, Dark. This is a part of my 3-minute makeup routine.

Pros:
stunning packaging (way nicer than any other)
natural-looking and …

Love it, but it needs to be set with powder. Looks terrible as the day wears on if it is not. Don't even try the Maybelline knockoff one because it can't compare.

Pros:
highlighting/contouring
general concealment
under eye area
creamy
natural-looking

Cons:
price
requires powder on top (Laura Mercier translucent is what I …

Perfect product. Way better than Hoola and Too Faced's Soleil. Those work as contour, but this looks like a real tan/bronze. I grew up on an island, so I should know.

Pros:
sleek packaging
good amount of powder
great variety of shades to choose from
extremely natural-looking bronze
Medium great on warm or yellow-based skin …

Close, but no cigar. Still greatly prefer the NYC Sunny Bronzer and Bobbi Brown's Bronzer in Medium. If you have light skin tone with yellow undertones, go with those. If you have a cool tone, this, Bobbi Brown Bronzer in Natural, and Hoola will probably work better for you.

Pros:
matte
natural-looking

Cons:
scented (chocolate)
not great for …

perfect gorgeous blue skinny brush
matte

Cons:
chocolate scent, though some people will love that
price - $30

Liquid - Dior - Diorskin Forever Extreme Wear Flawless Makeup SPF25

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/22/2016

The best foundation I've tried, hands down. This is glowing, performance-wise! If you have perfect model skin (with small pores, no lines, minimal redness, and no acne scarring), a tinted moisturizer is enough. For the rest, a tinted moisturizer settles and reflects off every imperfection; this glides right over. You don't even need a primer. If you have dry skin, it glides over …Read more

Goes on smooth, and I like Dior foundation formulations, but what is with the color range? I have never had a hard time finding a color in a line before because I have a very common light yellow-based skin tone.

Overall, I liked the Forever foundation by Dior a lot better as it looks a lot more natural and luminous. This one can look cakey easily. The Forever Foundation is also a …

Pigmentation is greatly lacking with this. Most MAC shadows are highly pigmented -- not this though. Tried it on at the MAC store, and it did nothing for my light brown eyes. Had to layer it quite a few times. Would not buy.

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eyeshadow in Mystery [DISCONTINUED]

Jul/07/2013

I was looking over at the eye shadows at Mac for a good neutral crease shade to pair with my All That Glitters. For some reason I thought this was a purple or grayish shade, but it literally is a black/gray shade. It doesn't have any purple or brown undertones, so it definitely was not what I was looking for. This didn't make my light brown eyes pop.

So not worth it. Fail of a mask. Queen Helene's actually works, and for less money.

This one made me break out -- go figure. Of all things, I'd think a mask would do anything but. It was horrible, and I think my experimentation with the majority of facial products has come to an end.

That I can thank them for, at least.
