Urban Decay launched this Bronzer, Highlighter and Blush compact for Spring 2013, the Bronzer is a sheer of Orange Brown, which I super love, It looks great on my skin tone. 

The blush included in the compact is described as "dusty rose satin with a hint of shimmer", which gives a really nice glow on my cheeks. The texture is a little bit dry and difficult to pick up with a brush so you do need to swirl the brush around a bit...

The highlighter is described as a soft pink champagne shimmer (frosty/metallic), the texture of the highlighter is a bit different compared to the bronzer and blush, it's more buttery or creamy.

Overall, I love the palette, I sometimes use it as my eyeshadow, because all the colors blend in nicely. I've been using this everyday since I got it, its very travel friendly...all in one face palette, so It's really handy!

I absolutely love the packaging, its so sleek,it has a large mirror and snaps shut so easily with the magnetic closing.

MAC Fashion Set Embrace Me Lipstick (Lip Swatch and Review)

MAC Fashion Set Embrace Me Lipstick (Lip Swatch and Review)

(Limited Edition)

Finish: Matte

This Lipstick is described as Bright Fushsia cream. It's matte, blue based pink and the color is slightly more magenta then my Mac Candy yum yum. It's a really nice bold color that you can wear everyday. It can be a bit drying on the lips since its matte finish so you might want to use a lip balm under it. 

Like every other MAC matte lipstick this has a good staying powder, it can stay for about 6-8 hours on me and still look good. 

Lipstick Swatch:



My Skin Type: Oily Combination

Today, I'll be doing a review on the Ben Nye banana luxury powder product that was made famous by Wayne Goss, Kim Kardashian's Make Up artist..I've seen a lot of reviews on youtube and reviews here online about this product but I still want to put mine out there...

This product comes in 3 sizes (1.5 oz. , 3 oz. and the 8 oz. ) I have with me the biggest one which comes into a jar, not the usual Plastic shaker bottle. 

I use this as my setting powder (because my Make Up for Ever loose powder is too expensive, I wasn't able to keep up, kidding!) Anyway,  it has yellow undertone that is most likely to go well with most skin tones, it feels silky on my skin and not scratchy or grainy like other powders.  

It gives you a matte finish, totally looks natural even if I put on layer upon layer, I don't have worries about it looking too cake-y on me!

Since I got the biggest size, it was so difficult for me to travel it. So, I had to buy a sifter for it and transfer it there just to make it more travel-friendly.

Overall, this powder is great, It's a must have if you are looking for a cheap/affordable-great quality-setting powder, I totally recommend this!
