This CC cream was a let down for me. I was able to get a sample from Sephora to try, so luckily I wasn't out any cash. I used the shade light, and it was a bit dark and yellow for me. I'd estimate myself to be a MAC NC20 right now. The cream is very thick and sits on the skin without sinking in. It smells heavily of sunscreen and is hard to blend. I will say that after I set it with …Read more

NC15. I used to use Bobbi Brown Corrector in Light Bisque before I discovered this gem. I use Fair/Light and apply with my fingertip in a patting motion. I barely have to use any for full coverage of my massive circles! I set with Benefit Powderflage and experience no fading or creasing. It is a firmer texture than BB's Corrector and Concealer, but it really works better for me. I am almost …Read more

Lipstick - Edward Bess - Ultra Slick Lipstick in Secret Desire

NC15. I have recently discovered Edward Bess lipstick, and Secret Desire is a favorite! It is a light natural pink color. MLBB, with a touch of peach. The formula is glossy and lasts an average of 3 to 4 hours. I love the smell- perfumey and fruity. The packaging is sleek and simple. This is definitely a new favorite color that will go with many looks!

NC15. This is a gorgeous light nude peach that actually looks peach on my lips! It is opaque enough to cancel out the pink of my lips, but it doesn't give me corpse lips either. I love the creamy soft formula. I wouldn't call it long lasting, but it is average. The scent is not Esteee Lauder fig, more of a perfumey fruit smell that is hard to describe. I actually love the smell. The …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - MAKE UP FOR EVER - HD Microperfecting Primer in 0 Neutral

This is a colorless primer that has the consistency of a light lotion or serum. I use it under my NARS Sheer Glow to help the foundation go on smoothly and not adhere to dry patches. I would not recommend this primer for oily skin at all. I find it helps my foundation not settle into fine lines at the end of the day. I have already repurchased my second bottle. I use one pump for my entire …Read more

Exhibit A is a matte bright orange. I use a skunk brush and barely tap the bristles into the pan. Apply lightly and buff a lot. This gives a nice healthy flush on my NC20 skin. Love!!

Lovejoy is a bronzed plum with subtle golden shimmer. On my NC20 skin, it gives a contoured effect. It can be subtly applied or layered for intensity.

Amour is a matte pinky peach. I use a skunk brush to give a peachy glow on my NC20 skin. NARS blushes are highly pigmented and are quickly becoming my favorite brand.
