Conditioner -Nexxus - Phyto Organics-Humectin Extreme Moisture Conditioner
yajuwen 3/21/2011 1:26:00 AM
I am very happy with it. However, I wasn't happy with it at all at first. I tried to use it as regular conditioner but turned out it did nothing. Then I use it as a leave in treatment, it only flaked and made my hair greasy. Finally, I use it as a hair mask and it turns out terrific! Applied a generous amount and wait for about five minutes, it leaves my hair so hydrated, smooth and shiny and works with all my shampoo. I spent $20 for one 1L set (1L of shampoo and 1L of conditioner). For the price of $10 for this huge bottle of hair mask and its result, it is cheap.
Lip Gloss -Clinique - Vitamin C Lip Smoothies Antioxidant Lip Color
yajuwen 3/21/2011 1:14:00 AM
Generally, Lovely color and great texture like other gloss from Clinique. But I REALLY hate the applicator. I feel like I am always trying to squeeze something out of this little tube after twisting it for a hundred times and finally when I get the lip gloss, it is always too much. Such a waste, for the money and lip gloss. If Clinique can make this like other glosses, I would definately buy this again but not this poor pencil which I have no idea how many twist can it survive before I finish it.
Overall, I love this product but the price, but it worth. My hair was so damaged and so easy to dried out after dyed three times and permed twice in one year. After all of these, I no longer want to deal with all the mess I've done to my hair and just want to cut the damage part. First, I found Fekkai smooth hair cream, which it is pretty good for keeping my hair from dry out for about 36 hrs, but it isn't an easy-going cream. It flakes with some hair mask I use and some other leave in serum. Then I found this. It is better than good, really. This therapy is really a therapy to my hair. I apply to towel dried hair and use my hair dryer as usual. The finish is really silk like, healthy and remains until next shampoo, which is about two days after. Use this for four times I can feel that my hair is gradually recovering and restored. Also, it is a product work with every shampoo, conditioner, mask and style product I am now using. I will definitely buy this again.
Eyeliner -Christian Dior - Crayon Eyeliner Waterproof in Trindad Black
yajuwen 12/7/2010 12:04:00 AM
This eyeliner is pricy but I will keep using it. This eyeliner has an intense color, is easy to apply and rarely smudges. Also, it is pricy, but it goes a very long way. I feel like this eyeliner can last forever even I use it five days a week.
Overall, it's a lovely color with nice glitter but I just can't make myself love it so I returned it. The biggest problem and the only problem is the glitter. It never stays on my lids and irritates my eyes. Besides, this is not a unique color. I am sure there are other better choices out there for this price.
Eyeliner -Clinique - Cream Shaper for Eyes-Egyptian
yajuwen 12/6/2010 11:52:00 PM
I used to love this and use it three or four times a weed but now , about 1/3 left, and it is a pain to apply this liner. It became stiff for some unknown reason. This started since about half way using up this. First, I thought it's just the surface layer dried out so I sharpened it several times but it's still the same. It lost the creaminess completely, and became so scratchy to use. I just tossed it this minutes ago. For this price and life only lasting several months, it's super expensive and disappointing.
Lip Gloss -Clinique - Superbalm Moisturizing Glosses
yajuwen 8/22/2010 9:00:00 PM
It is a perfect lip balm and lip gloss! It moisturizes and tints the lips just right. It doesn't stay on forever but two or three hours is good enough, I really don't mind to re apply this because it is so easy to apply just like lip balm. For years, I've been looking for a lip gloss without glitters and provides a very shear tint and not sticky. And I found it. I have five shades and I swear I can never go wrong with these colors.
This is definitely the powder foundation I am looking for. Stay on for over 10 hours no matter in a freezing cold snow days or 100-degree humid tropical days. Also, it looks just natural like I am born with such a nice skin. I always love the texture of Nars pressed-powder products and this one is not en exception. Smooth application and no challenging to blend for quick makeup. One thing I must mention, Sweden is the BEST shade I've ever have for my fair Asian skin. The only thing I don't like about this foundation is that I can only buy the shade online and cannot purchase the refill alone.
Toners -L'Occitane - Immortelle Essential Water for Face
yajuwen 8/22/2010 8:17:00 PM
This is the toner I've been searching for! Thanks for this toner, I have skin is smoother than ever and hydrated. I love the radiant glow on my face and I will keep using it!
Moisturizers -L'Occitane - Immortelle Precious Crème
yajuwen 8/22/2010 8:13:00 PM
Overall, this is an average product, causing no irritation, and smoothing my skin. Without any toner, this is really a common product that you can find anywhere. And I won't use the word "hydrating" for this product because I feel more greasy than hydrating. I really want to give this a "1" overall rating after I found this product works much better with Immortelle Essential Water. I can literally see my face "glow"! However, for this toner from the same line, I need to spend about $20 extra for the effect I want, so this product becomes a way too expensive. I purchase two set of this because I love the samples I got from the store and six months for the first set. I will not buy again for this single cream but perhaps with the Essential Water.
Pressed Powders -MAC - Mineralize Skin Finish Natural - Medium Plus
yajuwen 7/10/2009 3:06:00 AM
I don't like this product. For me, it's a pressed powder with nothing unusual. I don't really see the difference for its "mineralize". I tried to use it a powder to set my foundation, but ended up with caking after several minutes. I also tried to use it as a powder foundation, which is not it designed to be, I supposed. It came to be a better result, I had a "matte finish" look. It caked, at last. I am so disappointed. Beside the fact of that my foundation cakes after few hours and looks terribly cheap, it makes my cheeks itch after drying them out. I think MAC's foundation is something really not for me. This will be the end of my trail to mac's foundation.
I love this! This is a TRUELY invisible powder. I saw the good comments on sephora so I ordered it, with some doubt of course, since I'd never seen/heard this brand before. When I open the container at the very first time I was so scared because what I saw was nothing but frost white powder. I was afraid that I would look unnaturally fair because of the color, but after applying to my face, I understand why it is invisible powder. Nothing changes after applying it on, the only difference I can see is that some very very slightly matte finish is added on my foundation, my skin still looks dewy as what I had before putting this powder on. It is really invisible instead of translucent or anything like that. But I have to complain about one thing. This powder is extramely fine, and I don't really like that. A fact of the super fine and light-weighted powder is that it spreads everywhere when applying. I simply can't use a big blush, what I did for other powders. I don't really use puff for powder, so I don't really recommend this for quick makeup to someone uses powder blush only. Overall, this is a very very good product, but to use it, it needs a puff.
This foundation is a fairly good foundation.It did impress me when I tried on my hand and applied to my face at the first time. It has a very good coverage for freckles, and it covers over 70% of my freckles, which I like, and seldom a foundation does that. The texture is okay. It stays about 4 hours on my not oil,not dry skin, and the finish I really like. It never drys me out or even makes my cheeks look dewy. It's good, but not outstanding for me. Somehow, except the coverage of my freckles, it does everything a foundation are required to be, but not perfect or better in any. True, it stays for a while and never cakes, has good coverage, the finish looks good, color fits me, but I can find so many foundations do those jobs as same as this one. The finish does look good, but not really better. It's comfort on my face but not that comfort. It is a foundation that worth it price($24.50), and the price I got ($17.95 at outlet). I think it's a foundation worth a try, and I am willing to use it, but I won't buy it again.
I definitely love this color. It's MY pink nude (NC 20). The color stays so long that it's like it never fades. Also, this color is lovely for everyday. This is my third time try NARS lipgloss on my lips but the first time I got it. A little bit expensive($26.1 w/ tax) but every penny is worth!
I like this product. This is a color of shimmer formula, but I found it's actually a "sparkling formula", the shimmer is more intense than shimmering. The color is very natural on my asian skin(NC 15~20) and stays a day long. Also, it works well as a eyeshadow prime, helps my eyeshadow stay. Besides, I need only a quater pea size to apply both my eyes, so I won't buy it again because I will never finish it.
