I really like this product, it's a good multi-purpose product for when I'm in a rush or when I want a nice natural look

I use it for highlighting the inner corner of my eyes, my waterline, my brow bone, my nose, my cupid's bow and sometimes my cheeks. It looks really natural on my NC25-30 skin and wears nicely. Definitely an essential in my kit!

I have never tried a tubing mascara before but I am happy to say that I am converted! I have never had a mascara last through the day and not smudge into a terrible mess under my eyes until now.

It can however flake a bit but this can be avoided by coating the top and underside of the lashes as the mascara adheres to itself better than to the lashes.

I think this is HG …

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - #165 Contouring Brush [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/14/2011

This brush, is so soft, so much softer than my other MAC goats hair brushes. I like the shape, and while I don't think it is a necessary brush, I think it can perform lots of handy trucks, such as applying blush, contour, highlighter on the cheeks, it can also apply powder under the eyes and around the nose and mouth, sometimes I also use it to do a quick blending of eyeshadows. Hopefully …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - SHISEIDO - Eyelash Curler

Jul/14/2011

I love this eyelash curler! Much better than any drugstore curler I have tried. It fits my prominent eye shape perfectly, it has never pinched me. One rubber pad has so far lasted me about 6 months and so far there is no dent in it, compared to my drugstore one, where the pad would last me 2 weeks if I was lucky. I do chuck this curler in my overnight bag and I've noticed it has loosened at …Read more

Mascara - MAC Cosmetics - Zoom lash

Nice basic mascara, however I do not like the brush which is the selling point for me as I think formulations don't vary too much. The brush isn't very dense and the formula is quite liquid which does dry over time. The bottle I had lasted a long time without changing smell and it did not flake on me, but it did smudge a little, but that's what happens with eye makeup. Personally …Read more

Jul/14/2011

This is a mixed bag for me so I'm just going to list my pros and cons..
Pros:
- good formulation, doesn't flake or smudge when applied correctly
- great brush, nice and dense, no clumping when excess mascara is wiped off
- dries quite quickly and holds curl fairly well for a non waterproof mascara
- beautiful lashes is the result! Nice and long and fairly …

Beautiful peach tan color which pairs up nicely with Brown Down and pale ivory colors. It's texture is Matte2 which is to die for. Unfortunately, it is discontinued now, so if you get the chance to purchase it then snatch it up! Matte2 is on my endangered species list :(

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Veluxe - Brown Down

Brown Down is my current matte dark brown eyeshadow in my MAC palette. It does have a very slight red tone to it, but also has a grayish cast making it a lot more neutral than Handwritten (which is more red). It's texture is very smooth but densely packed making it harder to get product out. This works to my advantage because I like to build up my darker colors until I get my desired …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Arena (Pro Palette Pan Refill)

Jul/14/2011

Arena is my go-to lid color for natural makeup. Applied as a wash, it perks up my eyelids with some soft peach tones and gives then a beautiful sheen. I like to pair it with Wedge and Brown Down. It's satin texture is really silky but sometimes it seems like a fragile shadow as touching my brush to it results in product coming loose, not a big issue as I don't throw my makeup into my …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Frost - Swish

Swish is a really pretty frosty lilac pink color, the texture is great and the color pay-off is good. It can be used lightly in the inner corner to highlight or built up on the lid or crease to a more vibrant color. Very versatile. However, it is a hard color for my NC25 skin to pull off sometimes which is why I would not repurchase.
