Tarte Clean Slate Primer - Tarte Clean Slate Face Primer helps makeup stay in place longer while preventing creasing in fine lines and wrinkles. Unlike other primers, Clean Slate™ contains natural fruit- and plant-derived extracts to treat, protect, sooth, and hydrate the skin.

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrè Nourishing Moisturizer - Lait-Crème Concentrè (24-Hour Miracle Cream) is a rich moisturizing lotion. This specially formulated lotion is quite versatile; throw it in your travel bag when you don’t have enough space for numerous products. Our creamy lotion is really three products in one: the make-up artists use it as a primer, moisturizer, and make-up remover. It also reduces irritation after shaving!

Tarte ReCreate™ Silicone-Free Primer with Wrinkle Rewind™ Technology - ReCreate™ silicone-free primer is powered by Wrinkle Rewind™ technology; a proprietary complex that's clinically proven to immediately increase skin's moisture content by 53% within 15 minutes post-application, decrease appearance of wrinkles by 67%, and increase appearance of skin's firmness by 47%. This smooth primer refines skin texture without silicone, minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and reduces appearance of pore size so your makeup not only applies more evenly, it stays in place all day.

M·A·C Lip Conditioner - An emollient balm aimed at maxing-out repair by conditioning lips, locking in moisture. Contains Almond Oil, Shea Butter, Avocado Extract, Wheat Germ Oil, vitamins A and E. Formulated for high impact to use alone or under lipstick. Petroleum-based, but not goopy, helps seal in moisture to protect the lips from the environment.
M·A·C Kissable Lipcolor -  Luscious in pay-off and application, Kissable Lipcolour applies with the smooth glide of a lip gloss, then finishes with the creamy pigment-rich look of a Lipstick. New Slimline vial complete with doe-foot applicator.

Vanity Fair - Midtone blue pink 
So Vain - Muted dirty coral 

M·A·C Lipstick - Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous.

Yash - Deep neutral  (Matte)

  1. Great faves Tina! I featured Vanity Fair in my Jan faves too, lol :D I gotta try that Tarte primer, sounds promising

  2. Great vid! About nails. My manicures have been lasting over a week and before they only lasted 1-2 days. They also dry really fast with my technique. What I do is

    1 coat revlon quicky dry base
    2 coats any polish
    1 coat revlon extra life no chip topcoat
    1 coat seche vite top coat (quick drying)

    I don't touch up my nails at all for over a week and I have no chips! This has been working over 4 months for me.

    I really want to try out the Kissable lip colors. Wish they weren't LE!

  3. After biting my nails all my life, I just stopped in October 2010! Really only because I had a gorgeous engagement ring to show off and I was embarrassed! Lol... Anywho, I used the Orly Nail Defense to strengthen and grow my nails out. Worked wonders... I love that stuff! The MAC Lip Conditioner I actually just purchased about 2 weeks ago and love that as well. It makes your lips uber soft and kissable!! (At least thats what my hunny says! Lol)
