Lipstick - Yves Saint Laurent - ROUGE PUR COUTURE Lipstick Collection

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/09/2017

For reference, I'm NC13 leaning neutral with dark hair and eyes.
I have these in #214 Wood On Fire, #52 Rosy Coral, and #207 Rose Perfecto.

#214 Wood On Fire is my perfect nude. I love this shade way more than MAC's Kinda Sexy or KVD's Double Dare which are some of the more popular "nudes" recommended for my skin tone. Kinda Sexy is a lovely color, but …

Lipstick - Jouer Cosmetics - Long-Wear Lip Crème Liquid Lipstick

3.0

Oct/24/2016

I've only tried one shade from this line, Creme Brulee, which is a warm peachy nude.

This is definitely my HG nude color, perfect amount of warm peach pink and light brown, very complimentary against my NC10 skin. Before I came across this perfect nude, I had to apply both a pink lipstick and a nude brown lipstick to try to achieve this color. I would say Creme Brulee is a mix of …

Lip Treatments - Eucerin - Aquaphor Lip Repair

5.0

Oct/16/2016

My absolute favorite lip hydrating product and I've tried it all from high end to Jack Black to Burts Bees, Chapstick, etc. Scented, fancy lip balms are nice but they're rather useless when it comes to really moisturizing your lips.

This isn't meant to be some fancy balm, it's meant to heal, nourish, and protect your lips and I love applying this in the morning …

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Lip Lingerie

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/04/2016

The shades in Lip Lingerie are very on trend at the moment; the whole mauve, pinky nude trend in a liquid lipstick formula.

However, you either hate it or love it.

As a NC10 fair Korean girl, I hated these. Formula was tacky and super drying. The colors are unflattering against my warm skintone and looked so unnatural and almost comical. They undoubtedly look lovely in …

Lips - NYX Professional Makeup - Soft Matte Lip Cream (All)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/23/2016

For reference: I am NC10 (more neutral) Asian.

I am so fond of these lip creams primarily because they are so comfortable to wear. Has a cupcake/vanilla scent and a mousse texture. Unfortunately, these definitely do not last long and as you reapply them throughout the day, they cause tinted dry patches on your lips, but they're affordable and fun to collect.

My …

Lips - NYX Professional Makeup - Soft Matte Lip Cream in Tokyo

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/08/2016

I was hesitant to buy Tokyo due to bad reviews and because it seems to be one of the less popular shades from the line, but I'm glad I did.

I have a hard time with pinks; most pull too cool toned and lilac or too mauvey and rosey, and for someone fair and warm toned, I thought I was stuck with pale corals and oranges because every pink I've tried didn't seem to flatter …

Blush - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay Long-Wear Blush in Tipsy

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/19/2016

For reference, I'm a NC10/NC15 very fair Korean.

I got Tipsy several years ago when I just started to get interested in blushes, and being partial to peaches and corals, I went for this. I haven't even hit the pan because I only need the smallest swipe of Tipsy for flushed cheeks. Anything more and I literally look tipsy and the blush is so noticeable, which is not a good …

Polishes - Essie - Adore-A-Ball

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/19/2016

This is the sheer staple polish I reach for every week; just simple, flattering, and lovely.

I own Essie's Ballet Slippers too but Ballet Slippers is a tough formula and I just don't want to deal with its goopy mess anymore. I've also bought both polishes at around the same time and I've had to add polish thinner to Ballet Slippers, but Adoreaball still applies very …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - sushi kiss

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/11/2016

I love me some bright, pale pink/oranges and when I saw online swatches of Sushi Kiss, I had to have it.

Upon receiving it, I was less than thrilled.
I am a very fair Asian, and usually shades like these really brighten up my face, but Sushi Kiss looked silly and simply... cheap. It also didn't help that the formula was extremely drying even with some lip balm. It never …

Polishes - Essie - Nail Polish - Ballet Slippers

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/14/2016

Ballet Slippers is Essie's most popular and beloved shade which I find to be complimentary to all skin tones which probably explains its popularity.

Color is a very pale white pink with a jelly formula that is meant to be SHEER; this is NOT the polish to use if you want opaque nails. If you want opaque, go for Essie's Romper Room! Shade is nearly identical to Ballet Slippers …
