blended ingredients that helps protect skin against premature aging induced

by exposure to free radicals. Use after cleansing AM & PM.

Mini Review:
Tarte's Lash Hugger Mascara
I LOVE this mascara!
*Coats every lash w/the peanut-shape wand
*Bristles help to volumize
*Doesn't Flake or fade

Etude's Pore Erasing Peach Base
I like this stuff!
However, it'll take some getting used to.
*Definitely conceals my pores
*The hard texture NEEDS to be warmed b/w fingers
*Foundation/BB Cream glides on smoothly
*I would recommend that this is suitable for only light-to-medium complexions

Base & Foundation:
Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream #23
Mini Review
This is really natural and is great for oily/combo skin types.
However, before applying this (because of it's thick texture),
Spritz yourself with MAC FIX+
(or whatever spritzer you use)
blends easier this way...
Aloe Sun BB Pact
This is such great med.-full (more full) coverage!
also, before using this spritz your face
so it will glide on easier
I recommend using a flat-top buffer brush for application

MAC Refined Matte Suntan (LE- bronzer)
MAC MSF in Perfect Topping (my cheek-bone highlight)
MAC Mineralize Blush in Love Rock (LE- grand duos)

It's been FOREVER since I've used my MAC Studio Fix
Love the coverage. Mattify's my t-zone.

MAC e/s in Grand Entrance (Starflash LE- eyelid)
MAC Glitter Liner in HER GLITZ (LE-HK- under my lower lashline)
UD Perversion (to set my waterline liner)

Simple Lippie:
MAC Snob Lipstick

Thank you for reviewing the Etude and BB cream. I have the Etude Peach cream as well, but haven't tried it since I bought it...however, your review is positive, so I will give it another try

Catherine said...

Thanks for the mini reviews & the sale notices! I use to love Lash Hugger too - it's such a NICE formula, but it smudged on me, even with Shiseido's Base underneath. ;_;
