First off, bravo to Bobbi for another HG product and I RARELY if ever call mu items hg.

I chose this product because I am always looking for multifunctional products as I travel very often and remember trying the bb stick concealer and liking it which is supposed to be the same formulation as the stick foundation. It is also hard to find American products that match my yellow toned …

The color itself is very pretty. A goldy yellow with just the right hint of shimmer. However, it creases on your eyelids very soon (or face as a cream highlighter) even with a primer, makes your makeup look cakey and yes I use very little, and for the price.. it is very easily duplicable. Would not repurchase.

NC25 Asian here.

Is it possible to fall in love with a makeup product? Because if it is.. I believe I have. Now.. I have been on the search for an amazing highlighting product for a long long time. I've used everything from MAC something or the other to Nars albatross to Philosophy's color or grace to many many more. They were either all too showy for me, too subtle, not long …

Contour - Kevyn Aucoin - The Sculpting Powder

May/20/2012

Previously, I have been using countless bronzers and face powders a few shades darker than my own to contour my face. I am Asian and have a quintessentially prominent jawline with little cheekbone definition so I sorely needed something to sculpt my face.. especially in photos where my face would look like a moon at times. I wanted that super contoured look that I see in fashion spreads where the …Read more

My skin: NC25 Asian

Use: Skin highlighter for cheekbones, cupid's bow, nose bridge

The color looks as of an intimidating pink in the pan but actually goes on quite subtly. It has a very nice lit from within glow to it.

However, it for someone with yellow undertones as I.. it isn't quite up to par with other highlighters I have used and does not last long …

Concealers - Laura Mercier - Undercover - 5 Compac - Secret Camouflage & Concealer

Jan/24/2012

I know that one side is the actual concealer and one side is a corrector for undereyes but my skin color fluctuates often enough so that I just mix the two colors to get my perfect color match.

Packaging: I wish they made it somewhat thinner as it's pretty bulky and I carry around a lot of makeup in a small makeup bag during the day.

Longevity: It seriously lasts all …

Bronzers - GUERLAIN - Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powder-Blondes 01

Now, I am not a blonde and I do not use this as a bronzer. I feel like this would be a lovely all over bronzer for someone with pink undertones as it has lovely shades of rose and bronze and the color would complement someone with pink undertones in their skin. I am Asian and have yellow undertones.

Why is this product a 5 to me you ask? I actually use this bronzer as a blush and it …

I really like this bronzer a lot. I don't own many but got this as part of my 500 point perk at Sephora. I've been meaning to buy one as my skin was starting to look overly pale and tired as the winter progressed. The key to this bronzer is to use a very light hand in key points of the face. I use the C method on either side of my face, blend it out lightly in the middle of my forehead …Read more

My skin: Quite fair, Asian with yellow undertones, clog prone, sensitive.

The Product

Shade Range: Very limited. The lightest shade is too light for me and the second one up was too dark so I bought both and now dab my brush in both to get the perfect color.

Coverage: I get varying degrees of coverage with this powder depending on the brush I use but even with a …

Lips - Tarte Cosmetics - 24.7 Lip Sheer in Thursday

Dec/09/2011

This product fails.

Not much moisturizing properties at all so it fails as a balm and it is NOT sheer. I picked this up as I wanted a super natural looking balm to moisturize and to look natural but make my lips look a bit rosy but it is high impact color. The color itself is very dark and blue based... unflattering on my Asian NC 25 skintone. Will I repurchase? Uhhh no.
