Makeup Brushes - NARS Cosmetics - 27 - Yachiyo

5.0

Sep/20/2013

It is perfectly tapered and shaped. It picks up just the right amount of product, and its tapered bristles allow the product to diffuse beautifully onto the skin. Really, its effect is mind-blowing. It gives that lit-from-within glow, making the over-all-look ethereal and healthy. Also, I can use the most pigmented blush, and still not look like a clown.

Powder - Maybelline New York - Clear Smooth Shine Free Face Powder

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/25/2012

Despite its teenage-y vibe (at least for me), I find the compact case cute and manageable. I like that it doesn't take a lot of space inside my make up kit. I use this to set my BB cream everyday, and for quick touch ups at the middle of the day and it works fine. It doesn't have the best oil control ability in the world, but its okay. I have normal to combination skin and I find that …Read more

Palettes - NARS Cosmetics - 9951 Pleasures of Paris Palette [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/22/2012

Nars almost always throws a couple of neutral shades in his eye shadow palettes (which is a good thing, at least for me). But with the Pleasures of Paris eye shadow palette, he spiced it up a little bit by adding some purple hues and an almost-blackened brown to take the just-having-fun-in-the-park to rocking-at-a-party! For a neutral and purple fanatic like me, this palette is heaven's …Read more

Highlighters - benefit Cosmetics - Watt's Up! Cream Highlighter

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/13/2012

Benefit Watt's Up Highlighter is a soft focus cream-to-powder champagne highlighter that adds that extra luminosity to the skin without going overboard and is designed to work with all skin tones. When my desire for that extra scoop of healthy sheen that will last decently is on, I literally swipe this across my cheeks, temples and brow bones, blend it with my fingers and whoala..I have …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Colorburst - Soft Rose [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/09/2012

This is my first Revlon lipstick and I must say that this particular line is so up there with higher end brands that I've tried in the past; - both packaging and formula wise. I love the quilted packaging and how the word "Revlon" is neatly stamped on the lipstick (very Chanel-like imo). The color of the cap matches the actual shade of the lipstick as well.

Soft Rose is …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Victorian [DISCONTINUED]

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/08/2012

Victorian is a frosty soft fluorescent pink with gold shimmers. It actually reminded me of a more pink version of Nars Super Orgasm lip gloss but in a lipstick form. The color is gorgeous, but the formulation sucks. Yes, it's creamy and opaque. But it's it a pain to put on. I find it goes blotchy (which is the reason for my uneven lip swatch below) and its frostiness settles into the …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Amplified Creme - Chatterbox

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/01/2012

Chatterbox is an opaque vibrant mid-tone pink with warm undertones. If you want that pop of pink but without going overboard, then check out Chatterbox. For me, it's the perfect pink lipstick that I can just tuck inside my purse and put on anytime of the day. It is a wearable pink that has enough warmth and pigment, so even with a bare face, it doesn't wash me out. It is also an …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Casablanca

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/18/2012

On the Nars website, Casablanca is said to be a classic full bodied coral. I have to say that description is just half true. On my lips, it delivers more as a nice terracotta brick orange that almost has its own character. Definitely a one of its kind shade that I have been enjoying slapping on my lips recently. It is almost opaque in a swipe and stays decently on the lips. A quick dab is all it …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Cremesheen Lipstick - Speed Dial

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/05/2012

Speed Dial is a lovely wearable candy pink with golden sheen. It gives a nice pop of color on my face without looking over the top. I'm about NC20 in Mac and this shade compliments my skin tone perfectly. It never looked harsh or garish on me. Its cremesheen formula also enables this lipstick to go on really smooth on the lips while imparting that nice soft glossy touch too (no need for that …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Complete Salon Manicure - Commander in Chic

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/05/2012

Commander in Chic is definitely one of the prettiest taupe with purple undertones in the polish market today. If you love taupes (like I do), make sure to snug a bottle of this absolutely gorgeous color and I guarantee you that you will not regret making that decision. It is a color that is every-event-appropriate. Whenever I feel undecided with what nail polish to use, I always turn to this …Read more
