A definite must have as it serves many purposes. I primarily use it on my lips, on occasions on my hands and heels and even on the skin close to the hairline when I used to dye my hair black blue so the dye would not stain my skin. I've also used this to take off Halloween make up one time and worked like a charm. I would love to use this as a face moisturizer but am concerned as I have sensitive skin and I know I will not be able to keep this on my face overnight as I toss and turn a lot at night. My pillowcase would get moisturized and not my face =/
Such a good palette. Can't go wrong with neutrals. I too wish they had more matte shades in this one though. Not repurchasing due to the Naked2 =)
Have been using this product for years and it does it's job every time! Nose must be clean and damp enough for the product to work effectively.
Treatments -Kiehls - Midnight Recovery Concentrate

This product is great. It does leave your skin soft and supple. I too was not a fan of face serums that needs to be left on the skin for extended period of time as I have sensitive skin but this product earned my trust.
Used it both on the upperlid and tight line and It does not have the staying power I hope it would have. It's a nice deep green with hint of shimmers that is not overpowering nor that noticeable - it's only upon closer look that you'd discover the shimmer.
I found this lipgloss to be thick and sticky and I cannot get over the smell! It gives me a headache whenever I use it =( so I had to toss it.

My hands tend to be on the dry side as I wash my hands often and this product is amongst the few that helps counter the drying effect of hand soap without leaving your skin feeling oily/greasy. It leaves my skin soft and moisturized. I am quite sensitive to fragrance primarily floral scents so this works for me even more.
Eye Makeup Remover -Chanel - Gentle BiPhase Eye Makeup Remover

One of the best makeup remover I have used. Gentle on the eyes and does a good job in removing makeup. May have to go over your lashes twice if using waterproof mascara and waterproof liner for tight line.
Makeup Brushes -MAC - #187 Duo Fiber Face Brush (Stippling, Skunk Brush)

This brush will give a nice finish if used correctly. Has minimal shedding once in awhile which is disappointing given the price point. I clean my brush every after use any laid flat or hanged upside down to help retain it's shape. I currently use Bioderma which is a make up remover - it may ot be the best brush cleanser but I have yet to research the best kinds. Given that I use a liquid form cleanser, it is essential that any brush not be dried with bristles pointing up as this will allow the solution to pool at the base of the bristles aside from splaying the bristles out.
Cleansers -Shu Uemura - High Performance Skin Purifier Cleansing Oil

One of the best skin purifiers I have used. I limit my use of this product to the times I have layers of products to remove ( so not on a daily basis ) and it removes all traces of make up including waterproof mascara and waterproof liner on tight line like a charm. Leaves my skin supple as well and I would usually skip my night cream if I use this. I don't mind the packaging at all and am glad that it has a pump dispenser. I'd rather have a product that delivers vs a pretty packaging with crappy product. Very pricey but worth the splurge. It will last if used correctly.
One of the best blending brushes especially for smokey eye look or graduating color look.
I have a preference for this over Misha or Lioele Triple the Solution BB Cream. I find that Hanskin was more hydrating and left my skin more supple.
Nice color and good staying power. Very build-able. Like the felt tip like applicator.

This is a great product. It really allows the nail polish you apply last longer. It can we worn alone as well as it has an interesting tinge to it. A definite must have.
I don't recommend if you're a bit dry under the eye area. It also does not offer much coverage.
