I was very skeptical of this product at first simply because I thought the cheap price would indicate it would be a poor product. I gave the product a try it surprisingly exceeded my expectations.

color: I do about one swirl of the elf powder and it hasn't given me any white cast or ashy look. My skin tone is around nc25-30. I have olive tones and most of my foundations tend to …

I'm reviewing both versions of the sharpened pencil and retractable version.

Pencil: I like how pigmented it is. I love how it is matte, and it isn't sparkly or shimmery. It had a creamy feeling which glides on decent. I've tried multiple drugstore brand pencils, but find that this one has been my most favorable. It can smudge, but it seems to smudge the least on me and …

This was my first smokey eyeshadow palette kit. I was just getting started into makeup back then. i got this palette because of the price as well as the Nyx brand being called a decent brand. After using this palette for several years, I would not buy it again. But I am still going to try to finish using this first palette.

Pros: I do like the packaging, simple, slim and comes with …

I'm still on the hunt for a good holy grail lipstick, and sadly this is not one of them. After trying Revlon's Super Lustrous "Just Enough Buff", I didn't like how sheer it was and read some reviews on how Revlon "Soft Nude" was a holy grail of an asian woman with a similar skintone as me, NC 25-30ish.


Packaging: Package design looks cute …

Whenever I go to MAC, I use these wipes to remove my makeup.

Pros: nice packaging. I like the snap lid which makes them less prone to drying out so quickly. They do remove makeup decently. I haven't experienced any breakouts when I have used them. I can't comment on how they remove tough eye makeup since I have never used it on them before.

Cons: These wipes …

My skin tone is yellow undertone-fair medium (NC30) asian.


Color: I was hoping this lipstick would be nude on my lips, but it didn't look as nude as I would like it to be. It is a bit sheer. The color doesn't look bad on me. It is more natural than a strong nude color and less color than light pink. It has a peachy tone. With that said, the color looks pretty …

I bought this set mainly for the stippling brush. After testing it out, I was kind of disappointed. The stippling brush is flimsy and sparse. I tried to apply liquid foundation with it, but it takes more time and effort. I also feel like I am losing more product in the brush because it is not as dense. I still may use the stippling brush from time to time if i want my liquid foundation to look …Read more

Nov/29/2010

This was my first "non-drugstore" makeup and powder foundation. I thought that all powder foundation would be good at controlling oil, but my assumption was wrong. I noticed that I did get oily after a couple of hours. It settled into my pores and didn't cover it up. I didn't like how powder makes my pores more accentuated. The coverage is sheer to medium. However, if you …Read more

I use this as my everyday eyeliner. I love it (I would probably use another eyeliner if I were to sweat a lot. i.e: clubbing, heavy duty work)


Pigmentation/Texture: the color is amazing, it's such a deep, in your face, matte black. I like how it is so pigmented, that even with a thin black line, it is enough to make your eyes just pop. I also like the texture. It is not …
