These eyeshadows are pretty good. I appreciate that they are packaged in pans that fit in the MAC Pro Palette. The color selection is pretty good, though there are a bit fewer to choose from. I have Cloud and Fire. Cloud is a sheer white with gold shimmer--I tend to apply it more for the shimmer than the color white. Fire is a shimmery warm nude brown, with gold shimmer. Prescriptives eyeshadow isn't bad, but if possible, go for MAC or Stila--eyeshadows in these lines are more pigmented and long lasting than Prescriptives.
Treatments -Pola - Pola Blotting Papers (Aburatorishi)

These are great for absorbing excess oil! WTF sells them for $4 for fifty papers, so they are even cheaper than Clean and Clear's oil absorbing sheets. These papers contain no powder and will not disturb your makeup. The packaging is about the size of my palm, and the actual sheets are about twice that size. It uses "kleenex box" style packaging so that it's really easy to get the product out. Plus,the packaging is very small and discreet, and I feel that the white sheets that Pola uses are more discreet than the bright blue Clean and Clear types. On an interesting note, this product costs about $1.25 USD in Japan, and "aburatorishi" really isn't the name of the product--it's the Japanese term for blotting papers. Highly recommended product!
This product sat on top of my skin, leaving a sticky and greasy film. Ick! Plus, I feel that the AHA is unnecessary in a moisturizer, and it can cause stinging.
This product does tend to be a little greasy if applied heavily, but it's pretty good if you just want to even out skin tone in a few places. I think this foundation would be perfect for people who don't wear foundation over the entire face--you can apply this over undereye circles and a few blemishes.
Petroleum jelly is wonderful. It's often less than the cost of a lipstick tube for a huge tub, and it can be used for lip balm, makeup remover, and a variety of other household uses. A must have.
