Eyeliner -Shiseido - Majolica Majorca Automatic Eye Liner

For the price, I don't mind this, it is really good quality considering how much you are paying. Although I don't think it lives up to it's hype, I still prefer YSL's automatic liner or Laura Mercier's eye liner.
Powder -Shiseido - Majolica Majorca Pressed Pore Cover
wanyilee 3/27/2009 2:46:00 AM
This is a review for the Majolica face powder that was released in early 2009. LOVE this product, it is one of the best at covering enlarged pores! Even better than Mac blot powder or any other powder I have used. It is transparent, very light and very finely milled. I didn't expect this high quality for the price they are selling the compact. Although there are some things you should be aware of: 1. this product does not control oil very well, you have to constantly blot, but I am sure you can find a silicone based primer to help with that 2. it might cause minor break outs depending on what do you use this with and how humid the area is, I have only used this for a couple days (spring), I understand my break outs might have do with the weather changes and high SPF sun protection that was required underneath the powder... so I can not totally blame on this powder. ( I REALLY, REALLY don't want to blame this powder AT ALL) 3. Use a brush instead of the applicator they gave you will have better results! Despite the minor break outs which stopped this from being HG YET, the results of the powder is magnificent! I would keep on testing this out to see rather it is really the powder or is it just other environmental factors for my break out! UPDATE: This actually DOES NOT break me out! I found out it was actually my new Majolica cheek color (blush) that was breaking me out on my cheeks! I am SO glad that this one is a keeper! I think I will keep on buying this and will stock up incase they discontinue it! This has almost reached HG status, let's give it a month to make sure it's got consistancy!
Masks -DDF - Sulfur Therapeutic Mask [DISCONTINUED]

Pros: - sucks out all the nasties - clarified skin tone (like you wore foundation) - matte skin tone - slightly smaller pores after usage Cons: - smell, only use mask before shower - cost, moderately priced mask might become costly over long term anyhow, I <3 this and would recommend it to anyone with oily/acne prone skin.
Moisturizers -Garnier - Skin Naturals Fresh Daily Hydrating Fluid SPF 15

I have used Olay Complete Sensitive and found it a bit too greasy, as Spring is coming I want a moisturizer that's lighter with some sort of SPF. I got this because I love the Fresh toner, this didn't disappoint me. Smells great, a hint of fresh green apple scent... and it's not greasy like your average SPF moisturizer, great for combo/oily skin. So far no irritations for my skin. Love the squeeze out bottle, sanitary and easy to carry around incase I want to wash my face! I use this on my hands too it's so light and smells great! Update: this burns my skin a little bit sometimes that's why I am taking away a lippie! I guess I have sensitive skin and the fragrance is irritating it :(
I love the smell of this toner, makes me feel great every morning! It doesn irritate my skin at all, only makes my skin calm and relaxed... removes excess make up really well... already on my 2nd bottle. MUA did it again, I bought this due to the good reviews.
this stuff really works, results is gorgeous, beautiful youthful looking skin. I used it day and night, and there were still lots of products left after the 5 day recommended treatment period... and I was really generous with the product too. It's actually got a lot of product in each tube, and it lasted me about 2 weeks each instead. At the beginning of the treatment when the product was fresh the results were fantastic, but near the end of the the product wasn't doing as much as when I first started (I guess because the treatment was supposed to have been five days!) I love the results, absolutely beautiful, youthful and glowing skin! I would buy it again if I can get it for $60 which is what I paid... I might not get it again for $110 though, it's way too out of my budget since I use other shu uemura products too (and they get pricy!)
I must say this is the BEST mask I have used, and I still can't believe it is yogurt and aspirin! Give this a try, one regular small size yogurt that is around 39 cents will last you for DAYS (until it turns bad anyway!) I can't believe it takes care of ALL my beauty problems!! Hydration, acne, anti-aging, AND dull complexion!!! I combined the 2 best at-home masks together and created the ultimate at home mask... Ingredients: - low-fat plain white yogurt (1 tablespoon) - 6 uncoated regular strength aspirin - 2 teaspoon of water all you need to do is dump the aspirin into 2 teaspoon of water, and let it dissolve. Then you mix the 1 tablespoon of yogurt with the dissolve aspirin. There should be more than enough for the whole face, so you can also put it on your neck too. The mixture should take about 20 - 30 minutes to dry completely Result - instantly brighter complexion - well hydrated skin - skin looks radiant, pump and healthy - minimized pores - lightened scars - smooth out fine lines Pros - CHEAP - easy to make - instant results Cons - might get drippy if you put too much on
Accessories -Unlisted Brand - Ugg slippers and boots

I really don't think these are ugly as long as you can accessorize your outfit so it goes... I wear these with skinny jeans and they look fine I have the classic mini, classic short, cardy and cargo III Class mini is ok, but not my favorite, I never wear it anymore after I got the classic short, the mini is too short. Classic Short is the warmest of them all, it fits a lot tighter =) Cardy is chic and cute looking but you can not wear it when its raining heavily. Also you need to size 1 down with cardy. Cargo III is much more stylish looking, looks nothing like the classic uggs! I had to size up in these in order to put my jeans in them.
Pros: - Keeps shine away all day - Love the powder idea, I don't like conventional greasy liquid primers - Great to use with mineral powder or regular foundation powder - Takes away redness in skin - Lightly minimizes the look of pores Cons: - Wish it came in a bigger container like the rest of the mineral make up collection Summary: Great product, love it give it a try if you don't use any liquids in your make up rountine.
Treatments -Shu Uemura - Ace B-G Signs Preventing Essence

- works well to smooth out fine lines - instantly brightens complexion - not greasy - smells pleasant - great texture I don't know about the long term effects of this essence yet, but so far I love it because it smooths out my fine lines instantly and brightens my complexion. I had gotten compliments on my skin since I used to b-g line from Shu Uemura.
Moisturizers -Shu Uemura - B-G Reinforcing Gel Cream

smooths out fine lines really well, it does burn a slightly bit when you put it on, but nothing intoleratable. I been using this in conjunction with the essence and the recharging night creme, no break outs so far, and I even use SPF lotion (Olay Complete) on top of this in the morning. Most of the cream I tried always broke me out but this one doesn't, and nothing had made my skin so hydrated, plump, and radiant. I love this!
Treatments (Eye) -Shu Uemura - New Ace Reinforcing Eye Cream

I got a generous sample of this eye cream, at first I was skeptical before trying it due to the poor reviews on the previous version of this eye cream. But this eye cream is great! smooths out my fine lines, lightens dark circles and calms down puffiness. I love the texture of the cream too, very moisturizing and creamy... it's not matte like the previous version. Give this a try if you have a chance, I think I will go buy the full size after I am done with the samples.
this stuff is WAY too harsh can't even use it on my hand leaves my face and hands all red and irritated after, make sure you try this before you buy although it's got good reviews but it's definitely not for everyone
Moisturizers -Olay - Complete Moisture Cream Sensitive SPF 15
wanyilee 10/30/2008 3:14:00 AM
best moisturizer, and it's only $11... - keeps skin really hydrated - great to use before make up - comes with SPF 15 - does not leave you feeling greasy and oily - does not cause break outs - not harsh on skin - oil free, does not clog pores - very sanitary with squeeze out bottle all the high-end moisturizer should be ashamed of themselves I tried many moisturizers and this is the best thing I have used so far keeps me moisturized and it feels natural
I have suffered from moderate acne and blackheads... been struggling it through out my teenage years into early adulthood... I used all the products out there, none of them worked... so I finally got my family doctor to refer me to a dermatologist, and she prescribed me this. This has been by far the best acne treatment, non-drying, and it works so much better than just BP 5% alone.... I would highly recommend this although it is pricy at around $60 cad a tube (45g), but if you have extended health coverage... they do cover most of it, I ended up paying $10 for a tube after my coverage.
