This blush is soooooo beautiful. I hate bright blush (by my definition even Nars Amour is bright) but this blush is a very subtle, delicate, pink that makes my cheeks GLOW. The sparkles that look so obvious in the pan translate to this gorgeous sheen on the cheeks. It's not a doll colored pink, it's very much a natural human flesh toned pink. It basically makes you look lit from within …Read more

I have NW20 skin, large dark brown eyes, and pale blonde hair, and this lipstick looks FABULOUS on me. I'd imagine it's the kind of lipstick that looks fabulous on a lot of people, but if you're at all the same coloring as me I would highly recommend this to you. On my lips the color is a light peachy brown with just enough pink to make it look healthy (it's really hard to …Read more

Skin background: oily skin, prone to breakouts mostly on my forehead and cheeks near my mouth and I scar pretty easily. I was sick of my acne so I tried Acne Free thinking it would help but NOOOO it was a terrible waste of money. The benzoyl peroxide in this wayyyy harsh system made my skin red, flaky, dry, tight especially under my eyes I literally had WRINKLES. I had crows feet. I'm 19 …Read more

Palettes - NARS Cosmetics - 9950 Modern Love Palette

Sep/18/2010

Gorgeous colors, great variety (lid, highlight, crease, liner), portable, compact, super blendable (I didn't have my brushes with me once and I managed to do all my eye makeup with my fingers, including highlighting and blending out the crease). I'm cool toned and I was a bit wary of jezebel (reddish bronze color) but it's actually one of my favorites in the whole palette and …Read more

This is a really beautiful blush that I can see complimenting many different skintones. If you like deep throat but don't like shimmer in your blushes I recommend amour- it's a bit like deep throat with a good dose of coral and a matte finish (which I prefer as I don't want to highlight the pores on my cheeks). $26 is really expensive for a blush but it will last you FOREVER I …Read more

Blush - Bobbi Brown - Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks - Powder Pink

This is a beautiful, subtle rosey pink that looks fantastic with my NW20 skintone. Be careful though, when I say subtle I don't mean sheer, it's HIGHLY pigmented and extremely easy to overdo- often what looks good under the yellow lights of my bathroom looks overdone in natural light. I suggest applying it next to a window and only using two tiny dabs on each cheek (one of the apple one …Read more

Lip Gloss - CHANEL - Glossimer - Bikini Peach 257

Aug/03/2010

I bought Bikini Peach because I wanted a pale pinky/peachy lipgloss. I've owned other glossimers before and I've never had problems with them being long-wearing but for some reason this lipgloss barely lasts more than 30 minutes on my lips. If I were to review the glossimers in general I would review them favorably but for some reason I haven't had the best of luck with this one …Read more

I've been searching and searching for my HG MLBB shade and I've finally found it!! I'm NW20 and my lips are fairly pigmented and this is just a beautiful medium dark pink with a bit of brown so it's not too fluorescent and it's soooooo pretty and moisturizing (I love the amplified creme formula). I wear this every day for a lipstick that doesn't look like I'm …Read more

Jul/15/2010

While I won't dispute this works well as a face primer, if you really do your research on it's ingredients you would know that unless you have perfect, acne-free oil-free skin, YOU SHOULD NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. A lot of face products contain silicones (including dimethicone) which essentially are barriers that sit on top of your face (much like saran wrap). These products are marketed …Read more

I went out and bought this lipstick after hearing all the rave reviews on MUA but I'm really not impressed with it. When I apply it, it goes on almost too creamy and looks cheap. It's not an expensive lipstick but I've bought drugstore brands for a similar price that look more luxurious than this lipstick. I have full lips and for some reason this lipstick doesn't cover them …Read more
