This product does what it claims it really does hold your makeup in place for hours. Here's another things that it will do- hold your hair in place, when you don't have hairspray. I was at my boyfriend's house and we ere going out, and I didn't have any hairspray at his house. But I did have this makeup spray and used it because I was in a pinch. It held my hair better than …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Sephora Collection - Pro Airbrush Concealer Brush # 57

May/01/2013

This is THE BEST concealer brush for undereye concealer. This buffs in my undereye concealer than any other brush I've used (MAC 217, 224, Real Techniques brushes). This brush somehow buffs the concealer into my skin really well, and my undereye area doesn't look like I obviously have concealer sitting on my skin. This was well worth the investment. I use it with my cheap concealers …Read more

LOOOVVVVEEE this concealer. I almost didn't get it, because I've bought so many different concealers to use under eye, and I had pretty much accepted that I was going to get creasing with under eye concealers. But, this concealer is very different than other concealers. First, the concealer looks very natural even though I use it as a highlighter. Also, it doesn't need to be …Read more

This is an old product, but I've been looking for it forever. I had one, and I LOVED it. It was my most favorite blush ever. But, I lost it while on a trip, and I haven't been able to find a replacement since. Anywhere. I wish MAC would repromote it. It was the most beautiful mauve, pink-red color. Loverush is not a dupe for it.

Contour - Sleek MakeUP - Face Contour Kit

This review is really for the Sleek Face Form kit in Dark (the only difference between the Contour Kit and the Face Form kit is that the Face Form kit includes a bronzer).

Anyway, this product is great. The contour color is dark enough to show up on me and actually make a difference in contouring my face (I'm NC50). It doesn't look grey or red. It's just a perfect dark …

BB Cream - Sleek MakeUP - Be Beautiful Blemish Balm

I purchased this in the shade Medium 01 (it's one of Sleek's newer shades, previously they only had Medium and Dark).

Medium 01 is just a little too dark for me (I'm NC50 with strong yellow undertones) and this BB cream was also a little too red. I've seen pictures of people using the Medium, and I think this would be a better shade for me. Or, I may have to mix …

I received this in a swap, and I use it to highlight my cheekbones. It's much more flattering than Albatross, for highlighting.
I'm NC50.
UPDATE
I just had to update this review, because the more that I use this blush, the more that I LOVE it. It provides the PERFECT glow for me. I Honestly, most products that I've previously used for highlighting purposes (many …

Tinted Moisturizer - Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 - Oil Free

I got this foundation to use as a light foundation in the summer. I didn't really use it this summer, as I started wearing mineral makeup more often. However, I started using the tinted moisturizer as a quick foundation in the winter- and it works great at evening my skin tone out (my skin's not that bad. If my skin was worse, this tinted moisturizer wouldn't really cover much). …Read more

I got this eyeshadow the other day, and when I initially saw it I wasn't all that impressed. I swatched it on my hand, and the pigmentation seemed kinda meh. Also, I'm NC50 and I didn't think that the eyeshadow would really show up on my lids without a paint pot to help the pigmentation out.
But, I was super wrong. I applied this shadow over my UDPP, and it was such a pretty …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Apres Chic

Super glad that I got this lipstick. It's such a pretty pink coral red color. It has a little brown in it, which mutes the color and makes it everyday wearable- this lipstick is not an overly bright in- your-face color, which is great, to me. I will be wearing this color a lot.

For reference, I'm a NC50 with strong yellow undertones.
