For a very, very long time I hesitated from purchasing Benefit's Coralista because it was just too hyped up. I tend to stay away from "cult favorite" items cuz they turn me off and I find that most of the time, they don't live up to expectations. Even when I swatched it the numerous times I've been at Sephora, it just looked like a pretty but boring color. I finally …Read more

The only nude I can wear. I have tried so many nudes and they just don't work for me. They make me look sick/pale and my lips look smaller than they are. It's just not pretty at all on me, but this lipstick, with my NC30 skin, looks absolutely beautiful. It is the only nude lipstick I will ever wear and if you are on the hunt for a semi-sheer peachy beige-y nude then this is it!

I HATE the smell. If I take this up to my nose and take a big whiff, I literally feel nauseous for 15 minutes. But once you put it on your face, it's not as strong and after waiting a couple minutes, you don't notice the scent and it goes away. That being said, I don't know if it's worth putting up with the smell, but the results are beautiful.
THIS DOES NOT CAKE. Never …

This blush is tiny. I wasn't expecting it to be as small as it was. It honestly looks like a travel size blush or a Stila eyeshadow; that's how small it is. The shade is pretty, and coral pink, much like Orgasm. However, it doesn't have the same glitter/gold shine effect that Orgasm has. Instead, you're left with a gold sheen that's not shiny or sparkly in any way. When …Read more

I have been using this and recommended it to my best friend. I went to her house and asked her how she liked and she said she loved it too. However, when I swatched hers on my hand it was different. I literally thought that mac MUST have reformulated F&B because it was smoother and less sticky. I was so beyond shocked because it was not like the one I have. I blended it in and when I touched …Read more

I call this glorified lip balm. It's quite expensive at $29 but it is so moisturizing. The moment I put it on my lips I felt instant relief and my lips weren't dry anymore. It gives a subtle pink color to my lips and although it's really expensive, I've bought more expensive things so I don't mind repurchasing. Pretty packaging too. If you wanna splurge, get it!

I always wanted this and was hesitant to purchase it because I have enough makeup as is... but... I haven't been using anything else for my face since I bought it. It gives medium coverage but it makes your skin look healthy and bright without any shimmers, glitter, etc. Idk what it is but it just makes your skin look REALLY good and natural. I loveeeee this stuff. I know it makes some …Read more

This is a BEAUTIFUL taupe color. I don't know if anyone else has mentioned this but its an EXACT DUPE for Nars Ashes to Ashes. I owned the Nars eyeshadow before i bought Nutty and thought, huh, they seem like they would be similar. They're not just similar, they're exactly the same and to be honest, I prefer the Wet n Wild version's texture more. Its softer and creamier and a …Read more

oh my god i love this... i have super straight asian hair but recently i cut my hair pretty short because i wanted a drastic change. that being said, my hair kinda looks like it lacks shape unless i blow dry it or use some sort of heat on it but this product, and this product alone, eliminates the need for any of that. I look like I have voluminous, soft, styled hair and my hair just looks so …Read more

I found these at Target the other day so i decided to pick one up. Now... I am obsessed with blush. Some people are eyeshadow people, others are lipstick people. Well, I am a blush freak. So I bought this with the intention of using it for blush. I ended up gonig back to Target for another one soon after. Now I have two of these. Each brush is different even though its the same brush. The first …Read more
