Highlighters - MAC Cosmetics - Skinfinish-Stereo Rose

Jul/13/2010

This is the first MSF I've bought from MAC. I only got it because of the hype it was getting and I didn't want to feel like I would be missing out on something great.

It is a beautiful rich coral colour with bronze veining in the pan but when applied it looks like a darker version of NARS orgasm but with more subtle gold shimmer. Stereo Rose has a nice fine consistency to it …

I rarely ever want to re-purchase mascaras as it tends to be the one item that offers so many new choices. There's seems to be a new one out every week. This may be the only one that I will continue to purchase. For a drugstore mascara this has to be the best one I have ever used. The brush itself makes it so wonderful. It curves in and out as its shaped like 3 circular balls attached in a …Read more

Brows - MAC Cosmetics - Impeccable Brow Pencil - Taupe [DISCONTINUED]

My HG brow pencil! For the longest time I was using a mix of carbon & copperplate to fill in my dark brows. However, my skin is on the lighter side (NC25) and it never looked right. It always ended up looking too dark. Not to mention that it would wear off super fast.

I'm so glad I got this because it is the most perfect colour to fill in dark brows without it looking to …

Dry Shampoo - TRESemmé - Fresh Start Dry Shampoo for Oily/Straight to Normal Hair

I try to only wash my hair every other day. On days I don't wash I used to use Ojon dry shampoo which is horrible in comparison to TreSemme. The smell is so awful and it lingers all day although the product itself doesn't keep hair clean for more than an hour. Plus it was way pricier than TreSemme.

I tried the TreSemme dry shampoo first on a very hot day (35 degrees C) I was …

I had looked all over for this product. Sephora always seemed to be sold out. When I finally got my hands on it I was excited to try it out as instructed on the package. After a week of using it before bed I developed an eye infection. My eyes became very red and itchy. My eyelid also became swollen and did not fully heal until months later. During that time my eyelids were not symmetrical as one …Read more

I have been wanting to try this blush for so long since everyone talks about it. It lives up to the hype, really does give that natural flushed look. The bright matte red colour only looks intimidating in the pan. A little touch on the brush goes a long way and would look beautifully natural on all skin tones. I use the NARS yachiyo brush for a flawless application.

I used to love …

I have NC25 skin with dark hair and dark eyes and this is a beautiful deep rich red colour on me. I absolutely love this and had to buy a backup right away. The formula is not dry at all for a matte and has no smell which is awesome.

This deeper red creates a nice sultry retro look for people with darker features. Huge Bonus: Makes teeth look whiter!

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Chromagraphic Pencil - NC15/NW20

Amazing staying power! I use this to brighten my eyes by applying to my waterline. It stays on really well throughout the day when no other liner can deal with my sensitive watery eyes. I even slept with it on and it was intact 3hrs later. The colour is so great for a natural look and I hope MAC will bring more colours into the collection. Definitely recommend as its such a special product.

Loose Powders - MAC Cosmetics - Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder

4.0

I like using this for setting my foundation as its very finely milled. No matter how heavy I apply it on it never looks cakey. The powder completely disappears and makes your skin look more matte without being obviously powdery. I only wish that its lasting power was a bit better. I find myself having to blot or re-touch my face only3-4 hours later. Despite that I will repurchase it again.

Love this colour! Its a beautiful khaki colour with an olive undertone in a cream finish. The formula is a little streaky though and dries quickly.
