Moisturizers -Avene - Redness Relief Soothing Cream SPF 25
aizen 1/4/2009 12:55:00 AM
I've been using this cream for about 2-3 weeks. (BTW, I have SD/Mild rosacea/ senstive skin)so far, I can use it without any irritation or react.this is most important to me, now I am on Retin A so I use this as soon as I wake up in the morning ( I put this tube by the bed) because it has SPF 25, I know it's not enough SPF/PA, but least better than nothing to protect my skin from morning sunright from the window untill I take shower and do real my skincare routine. also I use this when my skin is too senstive to apply storong sunblock( Avene Emulution or Sofina etc ) it's just very light green tint in it. I am not sure if it can do anything with redness, but least I can use it without any reaction. so I like it. it's could be too oily for who has oily skin .
I love some of Revlon nail color ( depends on color) ,esp RED!! I just bought * #908 Red Hot * because this Red color looks like Truth Maiko Red .I only wear red nail polish on toe finger,
this blush is discontinued,love it!! very smooth, it's called strawberry souffle. it's gives very nice growing ,make skin really brighten up with just apply little bit. I use it on other blush to make faggy glass like looks or side of eye's or as high light.I bought in spice and pure shell at E-bay since it's discontinued.
Primer/ Corrector -Unlisted Brand - Monistat - Chafing Relief Powder-Gel

I bought this $7.89 at RiteAid, I am SD/very mild Rosacea also hyper senstive skin. no visible acne sometime I get small pimple like at forehead and chin. I used this after moisturizing( non oily serum) and sunscreen ten used it under my EDM foundation( fair).my skin looked very smooth & silky ( but very heavy make up looks) for first couple hour I was so happy (^<^) but later on, my skin looked more sug and dull and my pore is more visible, don't know why??I did touch my skin, felt very smooth,no itchy or no red, however when I see my face by 6 x mirror under bright sun light. I see lot small pin head size bump all over around my cheek depeloped.＼(◎o◎)／ I asked to my friend if my face somehow looks strange? she told me *today, you did apply lot of foundation something small bump?* (-_-;) also I asked same question to my DH and got same answer. he told me **paint mask man* (>_<) yes,he is right, it's looks paint face,however another words it's smooth surface & even out right? I think my skin is smooth at bigining so it's made much much more paint effct. so if people like to make super even tone finised this is the one! to me , this product is good if I go party or dining out as I wear make up more, but feel not comfortable to wear day time as I want to my skin looks growing & see through skin like It is inhaled or velvet finished ! like Isabelle Adjani skin. also unknown small pin head size bump is problem.I wish if I could use it without problem.....<(｀^´)> but if anyone haven't try it , it's very intresting to try ! my loss is your gain ! you might be lucky one (^_-)-☆
this moisturizer is very light texture and I wanted to be in love with! as I like gel/serum form moisturizer. I was looking for light weight moisturizer, then I read good recommendation this moisturizer at skin care board over and over again. so I bought it because I needed some moisturizer for the dryness from using Finacea.at this point, I didn't have any pimple or acne. I use maybe tiny rice size x 2 to apply each side of my cheek and little bit at chin. then after 5min, it made my skin really bad, I GOT LOT OF HUGE PIMPLE around chin area.I thought it's might be contact dermatitis ( reaction) so anyway I went to see my dermatologist next morning, she was so surprised that I got cystic ace, <- becaususe first time since she ever knows me after 15 years. also many white head.
this is my Fav blush . I'd been looking for cool tone pink blush for long time and this blush is that's is! It is a sheer cool pink tone with just little bit silver sparkle, I used Kanebo Tistimo blush over this blush to make more look foggy finish. if you are cool skin tone I would recommend this blush, I am fair skin/ Asian.
Eyeliner -Chanel - double eyeliner compact/la ligne de Chanel (noir et marine)
aizen 10/30/2008 3:04:00 AM
I've been using this cake liner for many years.and so disapointed that it's discontinued. so I bought couple. it's Lasts all day & doesn't smudge at all. I use as wet liner ( using Mac eye line brush) I love really deep black eye liner I mean real jet black, but I heard that deep navy color makes make your white part eye clear white. so I use the navy one over the black. only one thing I hate this eyeliner is that surface get so hard because I use as wet liner.so I have to to scrape off the surface once a while. it's looks ugry cause it......
I got this couple days ago. just because I heard it's discontinued. OMG! I don't know why I didn't buy chanel JC nude long time ago?? it's very beautiful nudy beige with just little peach tint.( I guess depends on skin tone, I am fair skin asian) on my skin it's really shows the color. match with my skin as very naturaly. it's not show like **here!! look! my cheek is HERE ** it can nice match with smokey eye make up . also very beautiful with red lip or even nude lip. it's so sad this blush is discontinued.....
Highlighters -NARS - Highlighting Blush Powder in Albatross
aizen 10/25/2008 3:59:00 AM
I am MAC NC10 I wish that I would in love with Albatross. I did try this at sephora(SA did apply it on my face as high lighter ), it's looked very bright up my face and I loved it! so I bought it . after couple hour, I checked my face at caffe shop which is outside (under the natural sun light) my face looked like cyborg & my skin got itchy cuz the Lanolin. Becca's PSP and Fresh's twilight ( or satin luster ) are much better , however it's good for someone who is under 35 years old and want to be playful style. I would recommend try it first and see face under the light & under the sun.
Makeup Brushes -Trish McEvoy - Trish McEvoy Brush #11
aizen 10/25/2008 3:42:00 AM
I had this brush for a long time ummmm.... I hate this brush. it's very hard ,almost abusing my eye lid!! but,I I found this brush is so good for paint for small part of wall which the paint is off.so I am using this brush for re-paint .
I bought it at Long's. it was something around $6.not too sft but not too hard so it's not too much for around eye area as eye area's skin is such senstive and thin skin. I am using this brush for gel or powder eyeliner by wet application. if apply withut wet bit too sfoft for me. but it's good for smokey eye's make up (without wet)

I have SD / super sensitive skin w/ mild eczema that is moderately acne-prone, often my chin & nose area is flaky,( I never get red acne, or blackhead ) I had use PC's BHA & AHA when just come out to the market, at that time my skin got react with this BHA so bad expect around nose.I was disappointed then,,,,, however somehow I tried PC's BHA again couple month ago after almost 8 or more year's ?? later from first time I ever used. wow!!! I don't know why??? I don't get react with BHA anymore , I had small pimple like bump's around my cheek and chin & forehead, it's all gone, my nose was bit rough skin before but now soft and clean and smooth. I wish PC still has the travel size because I use only pea size.

aizen 10/22/2008 12:36:00 AM
it's just works well . I 'd using Lancome's eye make up remover for past 10 yeras but I went to get this Neutrogena one because after read reveiw here,wow! I love this eye makeup remover !!! the price is way less than Lancome's but works almost same . It removes the toughest waterproof mascara and eye liner with out too much rub.( however I use 2-3 cotton to make sure all my eye make up gone)I didn't know there is 5.5oz virsion something around $8. so next time I will buy bigger size.
there is so gorgeous color selection,so diffrarent from other l/s color , ( not cheap look) the color looks rich and wet look & shine , also it's makes your skin tone beautiful too.
this powder is good for someone fair & cool tone skin ( also pale) . the color ( tone )is bit pink tinted. I am powder mania! and this powder is one of best. very Sophisticated finished look.not much casual looking I guess. I use this powder when I go party or dining out.
