I absolutely love this brush. This is the perfect brush to apply color into my crease, I have smaller eyes. I find I can get a nice diffused application or one that is sharp and dark depending on how much pressure I apply and the angle at which I hold the brush. I've used this brush for four years, and I simply have never found anything quite like it even in the Hakuhodo range. If/When MAC …Read more

I have medium-light neutral skin, closest to MAC NW30 but it's too dark/orange for me. I use the shade honey for dark circles. This is very pigmented, it also has a thick consistency, like paint, so use less than what you think you need and add a little more if necessary. If you use too much, it will look cakey and unnatural. I love the applicator, it makes it so easy to just dot right on. I …Read more

I have combination skin, a very oily tzone with normal cheeks and dryness around my jawline. I love this finishing powder! I'll say right off the bat that I get normal wear with this, I have to blot my tzone every two-three hours, same as every other product I've ever tried, however, that does not mean this doesn't work (this product does not claim to battle shine all day). This …Read more

I have three colors, Ethereal Glow, Dim Infusion, and Mood Exposure. On my medium skin tone, I do have to apply one heavy layer or two light layers to get it show up very well. I think these are wonderful, natural blushes. They are a dream for me, I just dip my brush in, pat them on, swipe, and I'm done. They have a pretty sheen to them that doesn't emphasize my large pores, are buttery …Read more

After using this product with the conditioner and hair oil for almost a year, it's safe to say I really like it. Does it deliver extremely voluminous hair? No, that's what hairspray is for. My hair is naturally auburn, not very dense/pretty thin, with fine strands and long. This combination of products does make my hair much less frizzy, less flat, shiny, and just overall healthy. The …Read more

Feb/08/2014

I've been looking for a replacement for my MAC 226, this didn't make the cut. I find that it's too long and flimsy to work like my 226. However, this is a great brush, it's well constructed, and very soft. I find the softness didn't work to pick up the right amount of color, and I tended to get fall out instead of the color being placed in my crease. I'm still …Read more

Eyeliner - L'Oreal Paris - Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner - Carbon Black

This is one of those I can't believe I never reviewed this holy grail product before! I'm an eyeliner wreck, I just couldn't do it until I discovered this many years ago. Once I found it, I never looked back, and I daresay I never even tried anything else because I never felt the need to (besides it's dupe, Lancome artliner). First things first, the felt tip makes it easy to …Read more

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - #129 Powder/Blush Brush

Jan/30/2014

I'm so torn between how many stars to give this. I decided on two for a couple of reasons. I think this a good blush brush, I had used it exclusively for three years, but it's not the best blush brush. First, it does tend to shed hairs when you first buy it, but that stops over time, now it may shed one hair every few uses, but that it is still unacceptable after three years. I find …Read more

Love this! I like that MAC always has a nice selection of shades, even if some of their lipsticks are hit or miss. Really nice, creamy, brick red color. Be warned, less is more, and use a lip brush. I need very little to make this opaque on my lips. Also, it does lean browner on me (undertone of lips changes the color, most lipsticks look a little darker/browner on me), so using a red lipliner …Read more

Finally, a Zoya nail polish that lasts more than 4 days on me! I love this. The color is a beautiful shimmering champagne gold with silver sparkles. The textured effect is exquisite. Putting this on isn't too difficult. I recommend putting on three thin coats for the perfect opaque color. Do not use thick coats, it won't dry well, and the next layer will be harder to put on. I used a …Read more
