107 Beige
Clarins

Reviewed on July 25, 2014

This is one of the foundations that I keep in my ongoing rotation. I love that it doesn't feel heavy but gives good coverage and a luminous, slightly dewy (but not greasy) look. It wears well - holds up through my work day though this isn't a long-wearing product so I don't expect it to go from 6 am, when I first apply it, to 11 at night. It…

This is a wonderful concealer. It feels very light and sheer on the skin (I use it almost exclusively for my under-eye circles) but it covers surprisingly well. I was shocked, the first time I used it because I didn't think anything this light would provide anything much in the way of coverage. I'm happy to say that I was wrong. This concealer…

It's 4 wonderful neutrals - mostly cool taupe/grey shades but the light shade (almost white) is a bit warmer and so beautiful. It…

Dazzlelight
MAC

Reviewed on July 25, 2014

One of my 2 or 3 favourite hightlight shades from MAC. Mine actually looks less peachy than in the photo - more yellow/beige. Even though it's a frost, it really isn't all that frosty or garish and it's a super colour for the inner corner of the eye because it really brights a lot of light and brightness to that area.

I was SO excited to find this last year at a CCO. It's hard to describe the colour - it's one of those dark blends of somewhat greenish grey, black and brown. Very sultry however you wear it - either smudged on the lids, close to the lashes, or as a crease defining/outer V shade. Applied more lightly, it can make a nice daytime smokey eye look.

Insane Jane
theBalm

Reviewed on September 2, 2013

I got this stunning silvery taupe shadow in the original Balmbini palette. It is only available in palettes - not on its own as a single eye shadow. As a result, I'm a bit "stingy" using it since I really don't want to use it up. TheBalm would be very smart, indeed, to add this to their line of regular eye shadows.
