Week in Review | July 9th through July 15th

Here’s a look at the top 10 products reviewed in the last week, plus a summary of how many products and brands were reviewed and a break out of ratings! 🙂

My faves for the week:  I’m really digging the Marc Jacobs Air Blush formula overall, as I’m a huge fan of satiny/luminous blushes!  Also, I’m still marveling over the long-wearing aspect of them.  I was also pleasantly surprised that MAC’s Nordstrom C’est Chic palette was easy to use and could definitely work for a lot of neutral, matte eye looks, if one didn’t already have a good arsenal of neutrals in their stash.
