Blush - CLINIQUE - Soft-Pressed Powder Blusher - Mocha Pink

This is a beautiful blush. I really enjoy the color on my medium skin tone. It's a kinda like your dusty rose color. It applies on sheer but the pigmentation is build-able. I can never go wrong with using this blush for any type of look as it's a very neutral color.
The only complaint I have is the packaging. It makes it hard for me to use my blush brush (mac 116) and tap it on the …

I want to loveee this product but I am not 100% sure. It is quite expensive so I expect it to do wonders. I actually use this for my entire face lol (I got this as a sample originally and loved it but it was only on my second bottle did I realize that it's only for eyes and lips lol :P oops). So yes it does remove all of my makeup but here is my issue...
My issue with this product is …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Russian Red

Wow. Beautiful lipstick! I had never really ventured the world of red lipsticks up until Russian Red. Most reds are too orange tone or I don't know, just not something I would wear. Russian Red has no awkward orange tones. It's a beautiful red.. mm like a blood red? That definitely does not sound nice but trust me, a nice wearable bold red lipstick. It complements my warm medium Indian …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Velvet Matte Lip Pencil - Cruella

I got Cruella as part of the Sephora birthday gift. On my warm Indain complexion Curella looks beautiful. Now I don't only really any ends. The only other red I own is MAC Russian Red. I find those two slightly similar in color especially on my lips. However Russian Red seems like your classic bold red. Cruella distinguishes itself as that perfect winter shade. It is almost a berry red …Read more

This is a beautiful shade, at least I think. I got this as a birthday gift from Sephora. At first I did not like it. Not because it did any damage or that I didn't like the color but I didn't notice anything different when applied on my lips. Then after a few tries some days later, I finally noticed something. It's a really your-lips-but-better shade for me. However, it really …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Amplified Lipstick - Impassioned

3.0

Jan/31/2016

Impassioned is a fun color to wear. It is bold and neon. At the same time it's wearable because it's too daring (like a deep deep vampy maroon color, purple, or a blue color you know?). I think this definitely looks like your perfect summer shade with a tan but I've worn it all year around. What I like about this color is that the coral shade compliments my golden undertone Indian …Read more

This is a very high coverage foundation. Very. But I found this to be very cake. However, it's not so apparent in photographs. In fact, it photographs beautifully!. But when you look up close, you can see that there is something on your skin. Other than that, the foundation does have a long lasting power.
The shade range is versatile but the NC ranges can sometimes be too orangey. In …

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Face and Body Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/28/2016

I rarely use foundations. The main reason is because I don't like the idea of packing on product on my face. However I hate it when I really need a foundation and I don't have one for that special occasion. Finally I decided getting this one for a number of good reasons.
I can't really describe my skin type. It's more on the normal side. Sometimes dry, but sometimes …

Jan/28/2016

I had been eyeing this product for the longest time and it has been finally mine since 6 months ago. Have been loving it since. I always wanted to own a nice shimmery highlighter, one perfect for special occasions.
My skin tone is your typical Indian golden undertone medium skin (NC37/NC42 in Studio Fix, c5 in MAC F&B, and Barcelona in NARS Sheer Glow). I wanted a highlighter that …

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - #116 Blush Brush

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/28/2016

Blush brushes are tricky. They can come overwhelming large or too small. I think getting one that fits your checks size perfectly (slightly smaller than it) works well and gives perfect control. I had been looking for the perfect blush brush for a long time. That's when I found the 116. First of all, it's natural bristles. I only use powder blush so this is perfect for picking up the …Read more
