Cleansers -Shu Uemura - High Performance Balancing Oil - enriched version

I got 2 samples of High Performance Balancing Oil - enriched version from Shu when I bought makeups. Being a big (but not always loyal) fan of Shu, i was very keen to try it. This oil is thicker than other Shu cleansing oil formula I have used: cleansing oil light (discontinued), fresh (pink bottle), the whitening one (light blue bottle) and the basic one (yellow bottle). Like all versions of Shu cleansing oil, It has a fantastic removing power. I find the smell pretty nice. Shu cleansing oils have never cause any break-out or rash to my very sensitive skin. I would not buy the enriched version, because I think the fresh version in pink bottle and the basic one in yellow bottle suit my skin better than this one. Plus i do not like the thickness of this oil. However, I wouldn't mind using the enriched version if i got it for free. Because there's nothing wrong with this product really. I would highly recommend it to people with dry skin.

Nice color. It shows up beautifully and lasts pretty long.
I bought a Lunasol cream foundation in OC02 color at a Kanebo/Lunasol counter in Thailand for THB 1,800. (I have very fair Asian skin and can use both OC01 & OC02, although OC02 is slightly darker than my skin. Sensitive skin) I had already had a Lunasol liquid foundation in OC01 and was impressed with it. However, I heard that the cream formula is fantastic so I decided to give it a try. That's how I fell in love with this product. The foundation goes on really smooth; it glides like a dream on my skin. It provides more coverage than the liquid formula. I would say the cream foundation gives medium coverage. It gives a prefect luminous glow to the skin. I even prefer it to the Lunasol liquid foundation, as the cream one does not contain alcohol which can irritate sensitive skin. I will definitely repurchase once i run out of this product. It's the best cream foundation for me. The search for a perfect foundation is over.
It is a good everyday blush. The color is pretty but I never wear it alone. I usually use it either as a face powder to lighten up my face before applying another blush with darker color or to highlight my cheekbone. Being a big fan of Shu Uemura, I wouldn't mind buying it again.
It's gentle and mild. Will buy again.
Fancl washing powder is overall a good cleansng product. It's gentle and leaves my face clean and fresh. however, I give it 4 as the producing foam part is a bit annoying when I'm on a rush. Will repurchase. ^^
Cannot rave enough about it. I Love Chanel!
I hate to be one of few people that dislike the concealer. The texture is way too creamy and takes ages to set on. I wouldn't repurchase.
Concealers -Prescriptives - Traceless Skin Responsive Corrector

I wonder why it's called Traceless concealer when this actually leaves a powdery trace. The packaging is good, very easy to use and carry in my makeup bag.
An instant undereye brightener. Travel-friendly. The reason I gave 4 stars is that it doesn't really cover the dark circles, and my undereye area looks way unnaturally bright. Wouldn't repurchase as I prefer more natural healthy look.
Nice product. Texture is lighter and provides less coverage than LM secret concealer. Still one of the best buys.
Flawless product. Good coverage, brightens my undereye and stays put all day long when I apply some powder on it. For me a LM Secret Concealer usually lasts about 1.5-2 years, and I'm on my fourth tub already!
I prefer Shi lash curler to Shu one cos it perfectly fits my eyeshape. and i don't find the price high at all cos an eyelash curler lasts a very long time, plus it comes with a spare rubber. Would definitely repurchase.
The product comes in a cute package, and I decided to give it a try even though I was horrified by the price tag. the color is pretty light pink -- too light I had to use it as a hilighter as I have very fair skin. I regret buying Dandelion cos it's not worth the price AT ALL. Doesn't stay longer than 2 hours, so I need to reapply very often. Would NEVER repurchase.
Fine texture. A must-makeup buy for beauty addict gals. :) The only downside is that it's very expensive that I'd hesitate to repurchase.
