Crème - MAC Cosmetics - Full Coverage Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/15/2010

I have dry skin and quite a bit of uneven skintone and scars from previous hormonal acne. I absolutely love the finish and the coverage that this foundation gives me. I use it in C35, I am an NC40 in studio sculpt (can be too yellow sometimes) and NC40 in mineralize cream foundation (not a perfect match either). Since I am of Indian descent and have olive undertones, I am so glad that this …Read more

Eyeliner - Unlisted Brand - Hashmi - Kajal Stick - Black

This is just the right kohl liner for the waterline.. It is not a creamy texture.. it is more dry... You just need a swipe or two on your waterline and you have a beautiful precise jet black look which will last well over 12 hours. i love this liner as my HG for my waterline.

I am really amazed by some products of NYC brand. It is *very* cheap in terms of prices, available in almost all drugstores in my area (SF bay area), and makes some fantastic quality items.
Love their pressed powder for finishing, love their lipsticks [both round and square], their waterproof eyeliner pencils, and their glosses!
Au Naturel is a brown mauvey juicy gloss color, no shimmer …

Love this brush. I use it for two totally different uses.
I use it as my concealer brush after i dot my liquid / cream concealer [Maybelline Instant Age Rewind double face protector OR MUFE Full Cover]. I use this brush to blend the concealer. It does a beautiful job at that.
I also use it as my eyeshadow blending brush. This brush is excellent at it as well!! I havent used the MAC 224 …

Highlighters - MAC Cosmetics - Beauty Powder in Drizzlegold

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/01/2008

I bought Drizzlegold after hearing raves about it from a similar colored MUA-er whose taste I trust. This has become my favorite highlighter now. I range all the way between NC37 to NC 44. These days I am on the lighter side [MUFE face and body # 34]. I love to add just a tinge of this powder on my cheekbones (above where I put my blush), and down the line of my nose, and very very lightly on my …Read more

Lip Treatments - Neutrogena - Moistureshine Tinted Lip Balm [DISCONTINUED]

3.0

Jan/19/2008

I have these in #80 Pure (dark pink color) and # 30 Sunny (Brown-gold-caramel color). I find it more to be like a smooth sheer-ish lipstick, than a lip balm. My favorite chapstick is the Burt's bees original yellow tube or the Nive blue tube one, I still use it religiously at night and in the morning. But the neutrogena ones are great for stepping out in lip balm coz they give a nice rich …Read more

MAC lustreglass lip gloss in Instant Gold looks light peach-sh / light beige-ish gloss in the tube with shimmer to it.
I am NC 45 / C6 / GGG with pigmented mauve-ish toned lips. I do not wear it by itself on my lips. But I use it to top off a lot of my lipsticks with.. be they lighter colors or darker colors. I also use it sometimes directly on top of lipliners.

Like all other …

Moisturizers - Desert Essence - Organic Jojoba Oil

Jan/19/2008

I use jojoba oil as a pre-cleanser. I do not use it as a moisturizer.
I use an SPF50 photostable sunscreen on a daily basis under my foundation, so to make sure I take it off well at night I do need a good oil based removal. I tried this from Trader Joe's based on reviews on the skincare board (thanks!). I love how it loosens up my sunscreen and makeup so well.
I have transferred …

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Face and Body Foundation

Jan/19/2008

I loveD MAC face and body initially. Thought it matched my summer skintone perfectly well.. and gave the best dewy sheer coverage, which was buildable too. Glided very well on top of sunscreen as well. Applied well with fingers and with a skunk brush. Packaging was a nice plastic squeeze bottle too - pour some out on the back of your hand and work with it.

BUT, this is the culprit that …
