I am quite sad to not love this product as much as I'd prefer. The color is a good match to my dark brown hair and does not look like it's too harsh of a color. However, I don't know if I love this product as much as a brow wiz type formulation or even just powder.

When it's brand new, I think this stuff is amazing. You will have a longer lasting brow with this kind …

Bronzers - CLINIQUE - True Bronze pressed powder bronzer - Sunkissed

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/13/2015

This bronzer is unfortunately too light for my NC35 skin. I do use it irregardless to warm up the edges of my face, but it is practically unnoticeable for my color thus defeats the purpose of being a bronzer. That also means I can't really tell what the wear time is for the bronzer, nor much else really. I may try to use it as a shadow too perhaps...

It does have some shimmer in …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Wedge

This is a great transition color for my eyelid- I am NC35 for reference. I like that the color isn't too noticeable and is essentially a great color to cast a bit of shadow into the socket. The color is pretty neutral- not too warm nor cool I'd say, and is a matte finish. I have not experienced any problems with the wear of the shadow, and does blend well. I have used some rubbing …Read more

Bronzers - Jane Cosmetics - Oil-Free Bronzing Powder - 07 Sunkissed Bronze [DISCONTINUED]

I absolutely love this bronzer as it is the right shade for me (NC35), and I like just how inexpensive it is, along with the fact that it is a great product. Unfortunately I think I discovered it right as it was being discontinued and thus will have to move onto another brand.

In case anyone does find this baby- it does have some shimmer, but I don't really notice it on my skin. I …

Loose Powders - Urban Decay - Naked Skin Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/13/2015

This is a really nice finishing powder, I bought it after noticing a review from Temptalia where Christine mentioned it was one of her HG products. It was a bit of a challenge to figure out what color I was supposed to be because a lot of the medium tones were very similar looking (I was in Ulta and even asked an employee). As it turns out, if I was to try and really pack it onto my skin, then …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Flirt and Tease

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/13/2015

Flirt & Tease is a sheertone shimmer blush and does have the shimmery particles in the finish. You may look at the pan and think "Gosh, that is a very dark plummy shade and won't work for me", however, I think that the color is very misleading in the pan vs. applied onto the skin. I am NC35 for reference. I think this color is quite a more cool toned blush, it is sheer on and …Read more

Foundations - COVERGIRL - Ready, Set Gorgeous Oil Free Foundation

Created with Sketch.

Nov/13/2015

First off, for reference: I am NC35, warm toned and any comparisons for foundation I make will compare this foundation towards either other drugstore foundations or MAC (have yet to branch out further).

I actually purchased this foundation at Bed, Bath & Beyond in one of the stores that has a drugstore section (and used a 20% off coupon). I have tried Revlon Colorstay as my main …

Misc Beauty Tools - shu uemura - Eyelash Curler

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/07/2014

Each person will find individual curlers/brands better than others depending on their eye shape, and I have found that the Shu Uemura and the Shiseido curlers are the best for my wimpy and short Asian lashes. Although I am Chinese, I do not have a mono lid, but I do have a hooded eye where my crease is very close to my lash line. Most of the time I will wear mascara, but won't see much of my …Read more

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Beeswax Lip Balm

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/06/2014

I continue to repurchase Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm over and over again, and have for the past 13 years... I think that the best appeal to me is the tingling sensation and the smell of peppermint that gives me a nostalgic feeling back to high school. That being said, Burt's Bees isn't actually the most effective in regards to it's mosturizing qualities. It does a fair job at …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Blush - Deep Throat

5.0

Deep Thoat is a deeper version of Orgasm and is a deeper peach/pink color with some shimmer/sparkle. I like that there is a reflective quality in the finish, it makes a person look like they are glowing and healthy. I am NC35, and this color is great when I have a bit of a tan. NARS blushes are really pigmented- one pan can last you over a year even if it was the only blush you owned. The product …Read more
