The quality of this blush is good but probably not the best color for my NC30 skin tone. I can make it work by using it as a base with a warmer powder blush.
This is a very pretty blush, but not quite as pigmented as I would have liked. The color is similar to my Chanel Spring 2012 horizon blush, but the formula isn't as good...
This is a beautiful blush I love to wear in the summer. It's Nars Orgasm like, but with a very unique texture. It also looks beautiful over a matte bronzer.
I love Bare Study as a wash of color alone on my lids or as a base for lighter eye looks. It doesn't crease at all. Since you only need the smallest amount, these last forever.
This is one of my 'in your face' highlighters. It gives a beautiful golden sheen to the skin. It's a bit bolder than I prefer for day time, but great for night time.
When I first applied this blush I understood my everyone wanted/loved it. On my olive skin it made my look like a tropical goddess. Unfortunately, the higher shimmer content keeps me from wearing it very often during the day. But it is a beautiful color.
Liberte was my first NARS blush purchase and I am so glad I have it. It is such a beautiful fall color to wear on my NC25-35 skin. It's extremely pigmented so I use a duo fiber brush to apply it. I don't have any problem blending it and it stays on all day. I think the subtle sheen helps a lot to help the color look full of life and not flat.
Laguna is a great bronzer to use for contouring on my NC25-35 skin. It does have some slight shimmer, but that never really came through onto my skin. I'd also use it to deepen the color on my neck and chest when I needed to. NARS also includes it in many of their sets, so you almost never need to purchase it individually.
I bought this because I had heard so many good things about it but I'm just not all that happy with it. I guess I just prefer powder over pencil when it comes to my brows. It does not quite match my brows, it has some red in it. And the cheap plastic come can't brush through my thicker brows.
This, like Georgia, was a waste of money for me. This is way too sheer to be used as a blush. Could be used as a face powder I guess but I would with the glitter in it. I'm just not happy with it.
CORALista is not as pigmented or as bright I had expected, but it is a beautiful color on my NC25-35 skin. It's more of a natural color on me and sometimes I add Bella Bamba to the apples of my cheeks for a little more pop.
This highlighter has become my go to highlighter. It looks beautiful on my NC25-35 skin. I have been using this almost exclusivly for the past 7 months and have barely been able to disturbed the pattern. I wish it was not LE.
I was not happy with this at all. I originally thought it was a blush but it's so sheer it shows no color. Then I found out its more suited as a finishing powder and tried it as that. It's ok. There are finishing powders I like much more. This one was just a waste for me. It's somewhat chalky too.
This blush gives my cheeks a very natural flush (I'm NC25-30). It's a warm coral color that perks up my complexion and gives a nice sheen so the color is not flat. Sometimes if I feel I need more color I'll add a brighter blush as a pop on the apples of my cheeks but this is one of my favorite 'natural' looking blushes.
This is such a beautiful spring look. I don't wear the 'all over' shade all over. It's too glittery for for that. This palette is well put together as far as shades and the pigmentation is fantastic.
I think this palette was a good purchase. I call it my 'fun' palette. These shadows are a great example of UD's quality. I did feel the packaging was too bulky so I depotted it and put it in a Z Palette.
This duo is perfect for a simple but classic eye. I absolutely love the lighter shade. I wear it on my inner corner, lid and brow bone. I blend the darker shade in my crease and I have a classic eye look the looks beautiful. The lighter shade is more sheer than the darker. The darker shade is really pigmented.
I've owned Bella Bamba for a while and hadn't used it till recently. When I finally pulled it out of my collection I was so happy with the beautiful, 'watermelon' glow that it leave. It is extremely buildable and can be sheeted out and layered.
I like this highlighter. I use it more in the winter when my skin is drier and it give a silvery/pink sheen. It's easy to blend and I actually prefer to wear it over foundation and under powder. That way the glow seems to come from within.
This is not a blush I would have picked out for my NC25-30 skin but it turned out really pretty. I love how it has a matte side and shimmer side so you can chose how to wear it. It's not as pigmented as other formulas I own, and for the price it should be.
