Review: LA Girl HD Concealer

I freaking love these concealers. I bought them for $1.99 from Shipping cost for $2-4? For reference, I am NC40 right now..

Creamy Beige: subtle highlighted look
Pure Beige: Brightening, natural for work
Medium Bisque: Seems similar to NW25. Still need to play with it
Medium Beige/Cool Tan: Perfect for my face
Warm Honey: perfect for around my mouth pigmentation (since it has a lot of orange)
Fawn: Lovely as a contour. Was a bit too dark for my pigmentation

Haul: Milani bright, bold lipsticks

Sweet Nectar - bright matte popsicle orange. I quite like it on my skintone. I like to bronze my self up to NC45-ish, and the color looks gorgeous!

Hot Pink Rage - OMG! I freaking love this color. Folks say its a dupe for MAC Candy Yum Yum. I dont have the MAC color, so who knows! It's a beautiful bright pink. It seems neutral pink on my lips (not too strong blue or orange based pink)

Uptown Mauve - lovely purple. It has more purple than MAC Girl about Town. It has a bit too much purple that it makes my pigmentation around my mouth look gray. Will play with it some more..

  • Upper lashline: MAC Blacktrack gel liner, smudged with MAC Carbon
  • Mascara combo: CoverGirl lash clumper (green tube), MUFE smokey lashes, CoverGirl LashBlast 24hr. Comb lashes with a metal comb. Curl lashes (carefully!)

Love of the week: MAC Girl About Town Lipstick

Yes, my obsession with bright lips continues. I am shocked really since I have been a neutral gal for so long.. It's a gorgeous blue based fuschia pink. I line my lips with NYX Fuschia lip liner, fill them in with Girl About Town, and then blot. I like wearing my bold lips as a stain/matte. It really brightens my face. It's a MUST HAVE for Indian NC40-44 skintones
