What can I say about this blush? It's perfect for me. It's definitely not for everyone, like I tried this on my friend who has NW55 skin, and this looked kind of chalky on her.
I like that it's a matte blush becauseI have large pores on my cheeks so shimmer blush really doesn't suite me.
It's a nice coral blush, and in the winter, when I'm a bit paler, I …

Liquid - CLINIQUE - Superbalanced Foundation

I wouldn't say this is my HG foundation, and I definitely don't consider this a year round product, for me at least, but this saved me during the summer months.
The reason I wouldn't wear this foundation during the colder weather is because I become really dry, and when I use this foundation on dry skin it feels like it's being sucked up by it, and looks kind of cakey …

I really did not like this product. I feel it has a horrible color selection, and has an extremely runny formula.
It has very light coverage, and if you like that and have dry skin, then you might wanna check this foundation out, that is if you can find your color.
I didn't think this was at all build-able in coverage because I found the formula to be, not greasy, but lotiony. I …

THIS IS AMAZING!!!!! If I'm not mistaken, this product is 1 dollar at Target. 1 dollar.
I was going to buy the Mary Loumanizer or whatever it's called from the Palm I think....whatevs, it was too chunky though and too light for my skin. I wanted something a bit more natural.
THIS product. Omg. I use this on my the top of my cheek bones, when I want a natural glow, I don't …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Hue [DISCONTINUED]

I agree with realpeak about this lipstick accentuating flakes on the lips. I don've lips that are prone to chapping, but a lot of times can't wear this lipstick by itself because it look like I do have chapped lips.
Anyway, I don't hate this lipstick, it is not the best because it is so sheer, but it is a pretty color. I wouldn't say that it washes me out though, and …

I have been trying out red lipsticks for years. YEARS.
I would always like them in the store, then I would walk out, take pictures, see them in my mirror at home, and just dislike it. I would put up with it because I love red lips, and the lipsticks looked okay on me, but something always was off about them.
Then I found Ruby Woo. This is my holy grail of all makeup products ever …

Honestly I'm not at all a lipgloss person. I went into MAC and said that I wanted a nude lipstick, which was new to me because ever since I've started wearing lipstick I've worn bright colors. So she gave me Hue Lipstick, which I was kind of eh about because it was so sheer on me, and the color wasn't so wow with my skin tone. It was okay, but she hands me the Florabundance …Read more

I purchased this foundation in NC 30 because that is what the saks girl matched me too, but as I continued using it, I noticed how unbelievably yellow the foundation is.
Not only was the color completely off, but the product is so heavy on your face, and feels like it's clogging your pores. Also although the product was too dark on my face, I turned out ghostly pale in pictures, which …

Jul/15/2011

This product did absolutely nothing for my hair. My hair looked like it does when I just let it air dry after my shower.
It's too watery, and it leaves a weird waxy feeling on my hands, which worries me because I don't want to be putting wax on my hair.
However I have very thick hair, and although my hair is naturally only slightly wavy, this did not leave my hair straight or …

I love this color! I wanted a like orangey red nail polish and it looks SOOO good on your toes especially when they're tan. One of the only colors I love enough to wear on both my fingers and toes.

The only complaint I have about this product is that I wish it was more opaque, which is a complaint I have with a lot of Essie polishes. I feel like it is also a bit pricey, but …
