Mascara - MAC Cosmetics - Splashproof Lash in Blacksplash

Pretty disappointed in this stuff b/c it makes my lashes droop down. I like how the formula isn't clumpy, and really creates seperate lashes, but I'd rather have a waterproof mascara keep my curls in tact when applied. Maybelline's Illegal lengths and Great Lash waterproof formulas definitely out perform this mascara. They are also much cheaper. Wouldn't pay the $3-4 extra …Read more

I really like this lipstick b/c it looks great with or without a liner and I can pull off a nice neutral look without my lips blending into my skin. I like that the l/s is slightly metallic b/c it gives the neutral look a little umph! The lustre formula is a tad bit drying, but putting lip balm underneath helps a lot to prevent drying.

Gotta admit, this stuff is really creamy and it really blends into my skin. The coverage is medium to full on me and NC30 is a near perfect match for my pale asian skin. I really like the packaging b/c it's super convenient in my purse and I don't need to use my fingers much to apply. A major downside is the staying power. It definitely wears off during the workday, but this is …Read more

Got this b/c it was on clearance at Target. This definitely has more brown than I had hoped. It's a sheer brownish red color that's really nice for a neutral look. It's nice w/ MAC Spice liner. I'm glad that I didn't pay full price b/c there's nothing too spectacular about this l/s. There are many other lines that carry the exact same color. Probably won't …Read more

This is a pretty blue based red with only a tiny bit of blue. It's fairly sheer, but it does have medium color payoff. I was surprised to see that it lasted a long time on my lips especially since lustres and sheers tend to lack in staying power. It's a gorgeous red that isn't OTT and it's very wearable...even at work at an office job. I pair this w/ quartz and it's a …Read more

Gorgeous plummy YLBB look that is fairly sheer and doesn't have too much color payoff. It's a bit drying and wears off easily so I definitely don't reach for this much, nor am I persuaded to purchase this again. Nice color but lacks in other important qualities such as staying power and moisturizing agents.

The hunt is still on. I had hoped that this would be the perfect concealer for my under eyes circles, but it doesn't quite measure up to my standards. Yes, it contains 3 very different shades to mix and match to my skintone. But I find that I probably won't use some of the colors. The power to set is nice, but a bit too light imo (NC30 here). Staying power is just okay. It …Read more

This concealer isn't all that great. I purchased this mainly for the circles under my eyes (these are hardly noticeable). After a full work day this stuff wore off. It's definitely not a long wearing concealer. It also has light to medium coverage. Although I'm turned off by the staying power, it does look natural when freshly applied and it is a perfect match for my skin - I …Read more

Wow! If you can get your hands on this you're really lucky. This quad is perfect and all the colors work great together. I especially love Black Pearl and Perverted Pearl. These compliment each other so well. The shimmery silver in Perverted Pearl really helps achieve an icy look. And paired with the Black pearl you get an awesome smoked up look. This is an excellent palette full of …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Lovejoy

Lovejoy looks like a dusty rose shade with slight shimmer. It's a bit on the brown side so it looks a tad bit too muddy for a neutral look. It definitely gives you a bronzed up look but a bit too noticeable on my NC30 skin. You should use a light hand w/ this blush b/c it's really pigmented. This is the second Nars blush that I've tried, and although it has excellent quality it …Read more
