  • Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20

    i like how this product is healthy for you and oil-free. it gives you a dewy finish and offers light coverage. be sure to put on some sort of powder to set it so it can last longer. i always have a hard time finding face products that match my skin color because i have asian, yellow-undertoned skin, and my skin is tanned, but medium at the same time. i got this in "disguise" and it's the perfect match. it didn't make my sensitive skin break out, is extremely blendable (fingers work best), and it never cakes or anything throughout the day. it also claims to be water-resistant, which is somewhat true. if you pat some water on your face with this on, it will bead off your face. but when you rub with water or wipe it with a towel, it will come off. it is not transfer-resistant (my poor boyfriend gets it all over his shirts! lol) and it doesn't oxide throughout the day or turn to an orangey-color, like the urban decay surreal liquid make did. the packaging is the best of any face product packaging i've had, but overall, i would say it is a great tinted moisturizer, but keep in mind that this is not a foundation and it doesn't perform like one.

  • Smashbox Beyond Beauty Fusion Eye & Cheek Palettes

    this eyeshadow applies very smoothly and the color pay off is great. the colors actually look like what they do in the palette when applied, unlike a lot of eyeshadows that you have to keep layering on. a little dab of the product is already enough. the eyeshadow looks great on brown eyes, except i wouldn't use the blush because i think it's too shimmery. shimmery eyes and cheeks, along with lipgloss, are a little too much. i got this palette for $15 at sephora because it was 50% off, so it was a great deal. the packaging is cute, but not very durable and it's hard to keep the lid open while you're trying to swipe up the color with your brush, and it can get a little messy.

  • Stila Lip Glaze
    6.0

    Stila Lip Glaze

    beautiful colors but very sticky.

    stila's lip glazes have a great range of colors, and i have this lip glaze in lemon-grass. it is a gorgeous, natural looking color on my lips. i also like the packaging and it makes appling lip gloss so much easier. what i don't like about this product is the consistency. is very thick and feels very sticky on the lips. so it's hard to rub your lips together when you want to blend in the product. great colors, but not the best gloss.

  • Tarte Clean Slate Flawless 12-Hour Brightening Primer

    i originally rated this product a 10, but i changed my mind. after using for a week or 2, my face started having little bumps all around my forehead. i like the fact that it's healthy for your skin, but there's some ingredients in there that made my skin react negatively to it. i also didn't help my foundation stay on longer or anything. i found that the korres oil-free face primer works way better (my favorite face primer) and didn't make me break out. so definetly get a sample at sephora first before buying this.

  • Benefit Full-Finish Lipstick

    i tried the lipstick in Lady's Choice and was pretty impressed. it is the perfect pinkish nude color. it glides onto your lips extremely smooth and silky and is non-drying. it's a gorgeous shade and has a great color intensity. it is not extremely long-lasting though, and you will find yourself layering it on and touching up throughout the day.

  • Harajuku Lovers Lil Angel Eau de Toilette Spray

    believe it or not, i actually got this perfume in full size for only $19.99 at Costco last year!! the packaging is very unique, original, and adorable. my bf and i agree that this was one of the 2 best smelling ones in the line (we liked Love the most!). it is described as having a citrus floral scent with raspberry, cranberry, blackberry, pineapple, pear blossom, violet, rose, lollipop accord, hinoki wood, and crystal amber. it is a sweet, youthful, and fresh scent without being overwhelming. whenever i wear this my bf's like, "mmm you smell good!" good for daytime or night time. it's not the best smelling perfume i've ever smelled, but it is decent.

  • Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil

    this eyeliner really does live up to its claim. it literally glides on to your eyes. i have mine in zero and i'm loving it. it is very pigmented, soft, smooth, WATERPROOF, and has great color-pay off. it is true to color (it doesn't turn to a charoal gray color when applied, like other black eyeliners i've tried) and is smudgable if you want that smoked-out effect. they offer a fantastic range of gorgeous colors and lasts all day for me, so no need for touch-ups. it may be expensive, but it lasts a REALLY long time (usually takes me a year to get through an eyeliner!), so it's a good investment!

  • tarte Powder Blush
    10.0

    tarte Powder Blush

    favorite powder blush

    i have the blush in verve and am in love with it at the moment. this blush is extremely pigmented and is gorgeous on the cheeks. on tarte's website, they are selling it for $1.00 each and so i got 5 of them, then on top of that, i had a coupon code and got 40% off ($.60 each)!!! the pictures online dont do it justice though. it looks like an apricot kind of color on the website, but it's actually a deep peachy-nude color that looks universally flattering on practically every skin tone. i thought it was a matte blush at first, but it actually has extremely SUBTLE shimmer in it when you look at it closely. they offer a generous amount of product, blends in easily, and what's great is it doesn't make you break out and is good for sensitive skin as it is formulated w/o mineral oil and petroleum. for oily skin girls like me, you might need to touch up at lunch time a teeny bit. keep in mind that every powder blush doesnt last ALL DAY long. but overall, fantastic blush. definetly go snatch it up before it's all gone!!

  • Tarte Dark Circle Defense Natural Under Eye Corrector

    i had high expectations for this product, but ended up returning it. i have lightly tanned medium colored asian skin and wear their smooth operator foundation in disguise, so i thought that the medium to deep color would match my skin tone. it was too dark for me and actually emphasized my dark circles. i do like that the consistency is very nice and blendable though, and it reminds me of the amazing cosmetics concealer. they both crease, are not entirely opaque, and settle into fine lines throughout the day, and have about the same amount of coverage. i do think the price is extremely high for the little amount you get (less than 1 oz!). if you have tanned medium skin tone and you want to give it a try, i would recommed going for the light to medium shade. i wish they had more color range (they only have 2 colors to choose from). this is not the best concealer i've ever tried, but it's also not the worst.
