Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - Sheer Glow Foundation

This is my 2nd favorite foundation, after Guerlain Lingerie de Peau. I love how natural and flawless it makes my skin looks. The foundation itself is water-based so it's pretty thin, but it blends perfectly and feels like nothing. It doesn't make my skin shiny or too dewy. It's medium coverage and I only need a tiny amount to cover my whole face. A plus: it does not oxidize! My …Read more

I LOVE THIS LIPSTICK. I've been searching for the perfect nude for years; I've tried everything from YSL, Chanel, Cle de Peau, Guerlain, MAC, Dior, Armani, Lancome, MUFE, Nars...etc. Something was always wrong with those...be it the texture, color, pigmentation, wear, or whatever else. So I decided to try Tom Ford, even though the price is insane. NOw, I don't know if I can ever …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - One by One Volum' Express [DISCONTINUED]

Probably the best lengthening mascara I have used and I have used everything from Dior to Chanel to Covergirl to YSL. It volumizes but not a lot. I use this under a volumizing mascara since this primes my lashes well and makes them superrr long. I put on one to two coats but no more or else it will start clumping. The brush is ok, not my fave. But a good everyday mascara. Will def buy more.

Highlighters - NARS Cosmetics - Highlighting Blush Powder in Albatross

4.0

Dec/17/2011

This looks chalky white in the pan and when I first swatched it, it also seemed super powdery and dry. However, under light it gives off the prettiest cool-toned golden sheen. Because of this, it will suit all skin tones very well. The shimmer is finely milled but it's not subtle...so you will still see glitter, just not chunky glitter. Anyway, don't let the swatches fool you! This is …Read more

Highlighters - GUERLAIN - Meteorites Perles Teint Rose

I've been wanting to buy this for years but $60 on a sheer illuminating powder?? I always passed. But I caved last month when I fell in love with Guerlain foundation..so I thought why not? This powder is supposed to give skin a glowy radiant look and each pearl has a specific color correcting purpose. I chose Rose since it is the original and supposed to work with most skin tones. After …Read more

Liquid - GUERLAIN - 'Lingerie de Peau' Invisible Skin-Fusion Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

I was deciding between this and Dior Nude for the longest time, though I had not tried either. So I went to Nordstrom to get samples of both. I'm a MAC NW25 and was matched to shade 03..which surprised me since I heard NW20-25 usually correspond to shade 02. But nevertheless, I took the sample to see how it worked. First, Dior Nude SUCKED. So I tried this one, and OH MY GOD...it was heaven …Read more

I read so many good reviews about this so I decided to go get a sample at Nordstrom to see if this would be the one liquid foundation I actually liked enough to buy AND keep. (I've tried MUFE, Dior Spray, MAC, Laura Mercier, YSL, CoverGirl, Maybelline...etc & none of them worked). Anyway, I was matched to Cameo; I'm NW25. When I put it on, the result was alright. The coverage is a …Read more

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Flipside

5.0

Aug/27/2011

These eyeliners in general are the best EVER. They really do glide on and are suuuuuper pigmented. Very smooth and easy to use. Plus there is minimal smudging and they last a long time. Anyway, this color is beautiful. It makes my eyes pop and it adds just the right touch of a fun color to my eyes. I like to pair this with neutral matte eye shadows so it doesn't take away from the vibrancy …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Peachstock (satin)

PERFECT peachy nude!! This is like an opaque version of Freckletone...which I find to be way too sheer. It's on the same spectrum as Blankety but Blankety is more brown/beige while this is obviously peach. I can understand why some people would say this washes them out...but I would say if you're NW/NC 30 and down, this will be good for you (I'm NW 25). But I love how this is nude …Read more

One of my all time favorite lipglosses. A MUA used this on me over Snob and I LOVED it. It gave me a light pink pop to my lips. I didn't buy it then though because I kept telling myself I didn't need another light pink lip gloss. But I kept thinking about it so of course I went back and bought it. Now I use it everyday and it's perfect. Love it over my nude/pink lipsticks. Although …Read more
