So I didn't do swatches the first post because I just couldn't ruin the gorgeous engraved TF before I wore it.
It's a beautiful lip color, really subtle and classy.

So both of these concealers have a really good reputation. The Pixiwoo sister's swear by the Studio Finish but they also use Studio Sculpt frequently. Tanya Burr of Pixi2woo also uses both of these pretty equally. So which one wins...well its not that easy because One Size...doesn't fit all.

I would describe Studio Sculpt as the creamier of the two, with almost the consistency of a Cremesheen Lipstick...not oily but moisturizing....which is why I prefer to use this in the winter.(Oddly enough the colors I grabbed for photos are the opposite for the seasons...) While Studio Finish is creamy and by no means drying it has more of a powder finish and is a thinner consistency which is why this is my summer go to concealer since my skin produces more oil. Both concealers have NC and NW shades ranging for 15 to 50. I really enjoy both of these and apply them with 224 brush.

You all should know something about me, I hate lipgloss! I just can't do it, its sticky and drippy and messy and usually has big chunks of irritating sparkles, your absolutely unkissable when wearing it, it doesn't usually look awesome on its own, its not moisturizing, I just don't like it!!!...okay venting over...Anyways I've always wanted to be able to wear lipgloss, I think it looks lovely when you can pair up a lipgloss and a lipstick to complement each other. I had tried every brand in Ulta or drugstore you can think of, I never wanted to try high end lipgloss because I felt it would be such a massive waste, well wasn't I wrong. What changed my way of thinking....

I realize that I'm turning into a total lipstick junkie, but I just can't help it! I think I owned maybe one lipstick entering my 20's...it just wasn't something I thought about. I think over the years lipstick has gotten the shaft...as in, pushed in the back corner of your makeup container and replaced by...yes, lipgloss. But I have rediscovered or perhaps truly discovered for the first time the addicting glamorousness accompanied by using lipstick. And so I present to you my new infatuation....Marquise D' (Pronounced: Mar-key-Dee)

|Sorry for the impersonal picture, my camera wasn't picking the color up correctly and this shows it nicely|
This is my go to bronzer. When I'm wicked pale and when I'm sporting a healthy summer glow this bronzer is awesome! It's very finely milled and almost "melts" into your skin...if that makes any sense, it feels like your working something satin into your skin. It's matte but doesn't make you look like you've been baking mud pies a.k.a dirty ;) The effect it has on your skin is healthifying...so not a word...but I bet you get what I mean! I really love this and have only bumped into one person that doesn't like it and well...they thought acrylic nails are still in...POINT BEING this bronzer rocks, and it by golly ought to considering it costs ($30).
I agree with every other beauty guru...the cardboard box is lame! And that little brush is rubbish but what beauty compact applicator isn't?

have a worry in sight- Origins.com
I included the description from the website because I think that is actually, exactly what this product does! I put it on in the morning underneath my foundation to give my skin tone a little warm-up. I think this works brilliantly in the summer time in place of foundation or tinted moisturizer. This is what I expected Estee Lauder's Sheer Tint Release($50) to be like. It doesn't give much coverage but the way it acts as a second skin and makes you look fresh and glowey is awesome! I could see this becoming a HG item...it's that fantastic!
