I wasn't planning on getting this blush cause I'm not a big fan of cream blushes but after seeing some swatches I decided to give it a go. The packaging is absolutely beautiful the compact is very small it fits in the palm of my hands which makes this blush very travel friendly. I tend to stay away from cream blushes cause I have large pores and I feel like cream blushes emphasizes them a lot. This blush does what it says it gives you that natural flush of color with a effortless glow without emphasizing your pores. I use my fingers to apply this blush, this blush can be layered specially if you have medium tan skin tone like me. I think on lighter skin the true color will show up more but this blush looks more of a highlighter on me than a traditional blush. It comes off like a peachy gold shade with a hint of pink depending on the lighting. I have oily combination skin my cheeks are dry so I didn't have problem with the blush being really dewy and glowy, so if you have oily skin do keep in mind throughout the day it will stay dewy. I got a good 6-7 hours of wear before it started fading.

When I swatched Pink Sand I immediately thought of Nars Orgasm blush which is a powder blush and it has more gold shimmer in it than Pink Sand. Its not an exact dupe but I swatched them side by side so you'd get an better idea of the colors. 


Overall
I love this blush I've been using it non stop ever since I received it I would love to get a backup but I'm undecided due to the price. There is one thing I don't like about this blush is the sticky texture other than that I love this blush. If you want that luminous glow for this summer Tom Ford got you covered with Pink Sand Cream Cheek Color which is now available in stores and online.

I love the box and as soon as you open it the first thing you see is a friendly note I thought that was a nice touch. Everything is bubble wrapped and comes in a mash drawstring bags. I received three pieces based of the survey I took on the website.

Overall
Honestly when I took the survey I didn't choose carefully so I wont blame them for the bracelet which I didn't like but it was a mistake on my end. I did the survey again and this time I choose things carefully that I would personally wear on a daily basis. I wear statement earrings occasionally but I love small earrings for everyday wear so the earrings gets a thumbs up. I have a similar necklace like the one I received so it wasn't that exciting once again mistake on my part since I choose it when I took the survey. I hope next time I get a Gorjana cuff Ive been eyeing the Isla and the Twist cuff now I would buy those pieces without a blink. Another great thing about RocksBox is the shipping its pre paid both ways which sounds like a good deal to me.  I have a coupon code "makeupwithmonaxoxo" with this code you get your first box for free.


Disclaimer I was invited to become a "It Girl" I received this box for review purposes and as always I gave my honest opinion.

Tom Ford Lip Sheers are back so is the beautiful white and gold summer packaging. Two of the Lip Sheers Paradiso and Sweet Spot are repromotes from last years lipstick collection. I skipped last years lipstick collection cause I wasn't a big fan of glossy lipsticks back then but after I fell in love with the Chanel Rouge Coco Shines I decided to give these a try.

Skinny Dip- Its a warm metallic peachy nude shade with beautiful gold glitter.

Rose Soleil- Its a beautiful shimmery plum, I love how this lipstick sparkles due to the gold glitter.

Sweet Spot- Its a peachy coral shade there is some shimmer in it but it doesn't show up on the lips. 

Paradiso- Its a gorgeous bright pink there is no shimmer in this lipstick and its very pigmented for a sheer lipstick.

Tom Ford Summer 2015 Lip Color Sheer

All four are lip sheers but they have different finishes Paradiso & Sweet Spot both are more of a cream finish. Rose Soleil & Skinny Dip both are a metallic shimmery sheer wash of color. I love the glossy finish they glides on like a butter and there is a Vanilla scent but its not very over powering. I got a little over 3 hours of wear so keep in mind these are not very long lasting. To my surprise I love Rose Soleil and Paradiso out of all four lip sheers. 


Overall
All though I love TF beauty products I must admit these lip sheers are quiet pricey. I also noticed when I applied them they kind of melts to the touch hope I'm explaining it right so because of the texture I feel like I could go through these tubes really fast. If I have to choose one of them out of four I would have to go for Rose Soleil. Specially if you have tan olive skin tone like me check out Rose Soleil its truly a beautiful shade. This collection is now available in stores so if you're interested be sure to check them out soon since all four Lip Sheers are Limited Edition.

I finally got my hands on the Tom Ford Soleil Collection I'm still waiting for one more item. I did skip the body oil and the bronzers. The bronzers are part of the permanent line its just packaged in a white compact with gold trimmings. Paradiso and Sweet Spot both are repromotes I skipped last year lipstick collection now I'm regretting it after playing with these two lipsticks. Im a big fan of neutral shades but I have to skip Naked Bronze and Black oyster. The cream that comes with Naked Bronze its Spice Cream Shadow (Review)  which I already own and I skipped Black Oyster cause it seemed dupable. I will start with the lipsticks first swatches and review will be up soon. What did you purchase from this collection? Please leave a comment below I would love to know your picks from this collection.



Sephora Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation Review

Sephora Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation 

I think Sephora makeup line doesn't get enough credit but there are some hidden gem in the Sephora line like this foundation for one. When I purchased this foundation they only had a few shades to choose from. Recently they launched more shades which now makes it total of 9 shades to choose from. Its packaged in a spray can bottle I personally don't have any issue applying this foundation due the spray can packaging. However one thing I don't like is there is no telling when you'll be running out of the foundation since its not your typical glass bottle packaging.

Sephora Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation in Tan & Honey

You might be wondering why do I have two different shades I bought Tan first and it was the only match for me at that time when they had very few options to choose from. Tan is not my shade at all its like a pinkish brownish shade but during summer time when I get darker I can get away with the shade Tan. I balance it out with a lighter shade powder and highlighters. I know that's a lot of work for a foundation to work for you but you see this foundation is amazing it has a matte finish, it lasts long I get a good 10-11 hour of wear. It photographs really well and its medium to full coverage I can get away with two to three layers without looking cakey. It doesn't irritate my sensitive skin or break me out which is a big factor for me. I recently purchased Honey its warm toned it looks a little orangeish at first but when I blend it out it looks just fine. I use a Sigma F80 flat top kabuki brush to apply this foundation. The trick is to shake the bottle really well and spray it as gently as you can from 6 to 7 inches away from your face that way it doesn't get on your clothes, hair and etc.This foundation dries very quickly so you have to work a little fast. I use the stamping technique to apply this foundation it helps to blend out the foundation seamlessly.

I took this picture in the store lighting as you can see Medium is too beige, Fawn is way too light for me, and last but not least Honey is a way better match for me. I hope Sephora works on making more shades for ethnic skin tones.

I tried to photograph both shades in various lighting so you can get a better look at the shades. I have combination oily skin and I didn't get any dry patches if you have dry skin I suggest you prep your skin really well since it is a matte finish foundation. 




Overall
I'm very impressed with how amazingly this foundation works on my combination oily skin also you cant beat the price.This foundation reminds me of the Dior Airflash Spray Foundation which is quiet expensive. Another great thing about this foundation is the expire date is under the foundation bottle so you'll know when to toss it out. Sephora you have out done yourself this stuff is simply amazing.
