I absolutely love this color, it's a pinky peach that has just enough warmth in it to light up the face. It's one of those nudes without much brown it in and can be worn with pretty much any kind of eye look. I'm NC 20-25, dark brown eyes and hair, and this really looks good on me. One negative is that it tends to settle into lip lines (not obvious from a distance). It has a demi …Read more

I really like this palette! I was apprehensive about purchasing it due to the mixed reviews online, but couldn't resist the colors and finishes in it. The mattes/ shimmer/ duochrome/ metallic shadows are great: high quality, easy to blend and place on the lid. I was most worried about the chroma crystal ones (fine glitter) which received a lot of negative reviews; the colors are great, they …Read more

I have this in Young Adonis and have mixed feelings about the eyeshadow duo. I absolutely LOVE the cream but am not too excited about the powder. The cream itself is fabulous: I use it over NARS primer and it wears like iron for 12 hours (no creasing, migrating or fading); this is ridiculously great wear time for me as I usually experience some creasing on my oily lids with other cream eyeshadow …Read more

I have an old version of this from 2011-2012. It's a beautiful bright coral with a satin finish, highly pigmented but blendable, never goes on patchy. I get excellent wear time, around 8 hours before it starts to fade. It's a bright and vibrant blush so i have to be slightly careful with application. It has survived multiple sanitations with alcohol and numerous trips with me (check in …Read more

Mar/26/2017

(Edit: This is for love lust in the old formulation;, I had to double check the UPC number) it's a peachy coral with very fine gold shimmer, not much pink in it. When I swatched it at the counter I felt it was too light and would not show up well on me (NC20-25) but the SA assured me it would and I took a chance with it (I don't like using testers on the face). The verdict is, I LOVE it …Read more

I was steered towards this quad by the SA; I really liked the eyeshadow look she had on and when I commented on it, she told me this was what she was wearing and recommended one of the TF eyeshadow creams as a base. I have to say she made a great recommendation: I usually stay away from quads which are too warm/ golden/ bronzy as it can make me look too sallow and washed out, but this is a …Read more

Mar/03/2017

This is the only TF blush I have in my collection so far; I had some store credit and decided to pick up a TF blush to try out. I initially wanted to get Flush, but they were out of stock of a lot of shades (I think TF is discontinuing the old blush formula and the stock for the new formulation had not arrived). Of those available, Wicked seemed like a very wearable color: it's a lovely …Read more

Feb/12/2017

I never thought I would like this concealer as much as I do; I've been looking for a decent undereye concealer for a long time, and wish I hadn't spent $ on everything else I experimented with before I tried this! Anyway, this is a fantastic undereye concealer: it has a runny consistency and I got it in 2 peach-based colors, #1 (fresh fair) and #4 (medium peach). The thin consistency …Read more

Feb/08/2017

The only negative thing about this cream eyeshadow stick is the price (insanely expensive...) and that it is constantly out of stock in this color where I am. I was skeptical about Misty Rock after reading rave reviews about it, but went down to a counter to swatch it for myself, and fell in LOVE. Misty Rock is a mauvey shade with a taupe base, and its multidimensional shimmer is simply beautiful …Read more

I bought this based on rave reviews and wanted to use it as an all-over-the-lid eyeshadow for a quick everyday look. Sadly it doesn't work well on me all over the lid; I'm NC 20, dark hair and brown eyes and every time I've worn it all over the lid I get comments that I look tired. Not good; not sure why it applies so dark on me. Decided to use porcelain (Burberry) all over the lid …Read more
