I was surprised by this product as I thought it would give me all those nasty sparkles on my face... it doesn't at all! Makes your face glow naturally without any shiny sparkle stuff, it's a really great tinted moisturizer for your "good skin" days! I prefer this over the sheer color version, because it does not make your face dewy like the sheer color one.... I am starting to like this more than Laura Mercier's too! When I compare this with Laura Mercier's (oil free version)... Not a big difference in terms of the results, this one is easier to blend, and it's $14 cheaper)
I really like this powder, it looks very good on my oily skin... perfect for touch ups on the go! I don't use this with the sponge it comes with.... I find that if I use it with a velour puff it looks much better :) I bought this along with the Matt Silk Foundation, and so far they are giving the best results I have ever seen.... In the morning I use the Matt Silk Foundation with loose powder... and when I get a little shiny, I use blotting papers and this for touch ups! Too bad the color selection is really limited and it's a little ashy, otherwise this is definitely HG material
Liquid -Giorgio Armani - Matte Silk Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

Light liquid foundation, very natural finish. Sheer to medium buildable coverage. however rubs off quite easily if you have oily skin, I would recommend this over LM's oil free foundation though, just make sure you get a good color match as it is quite difficult to find a match.
Treatments -The Body Shop - tea tree oil Cover Stick

I don't like this concealer at all.... except the smell of tea tree, does not do anything in terms of healing acne for me.... :( if I need a cover up for my blemishes I go to laura mercier's sc over this.......
Moisturizers -The Body Shop - Tea Tree Mattifying Moisture Gel
wanyilee 1/8/2008 6:23:00 PM
very average moisturizer, doesn't mattify at all for me, I like the smell of tea tree oil though :) doesn't really do much besides moisturize for my acne-prone very oily skin.... Surprised that the night lotion from the same line is soooooooooooooo much better.... try the night lotion instead of this!! It's much better
Treatments -The Body Shop - Tea Tree Oil Blemish Stick

completely useless....... in comparison to other tea tree products from body shop this is a shame.... don't waste your money on this, if you get one of those buy 2 get 1 free offers from the body shop don't be tempted to try this, this is just garbage
eye shadow color does not stay.... lovely packaging.... hard to blend.... weird texture.... moving back to Chanel.......
I have had this brush for years and it is still the best and prettiest brush there is! :) Gets rid of all the static in my hair leave its nice and smooth! The price is steep, but it's worth the investment! After all it's your hair!!!! If you have some extra money to spare, consider buying this! It would look lovely on your counter!! :D
The one and only Anna Sui product I actually like, lovely packaging, reasonable price, smells like rose.... and of course the choice of colors!!! I love the sparkles and how long they stay on your nails!! Doesn't stay on as long as OPI polishes but I am a sucker for all the colors and different types of sparkles Anna Sui offers!! Not to mention layering colors........I adore Anna Sui polishes!!
again typical of Anna Sui beauty products... package = 100%, smell = 100%, quality = 50%.... a so so product, broke me out a little bit, does not blend well, not very buildable, looks heavy if re-touched.... very thick texture.... if you are looking for a liquid foundation I suggest Laura Mercier's oil free foundation, a lot higher quality for a little bit more $, but it's definitely worth it.
very lovely packaging.... smells really nice.... but as for the lipstick itself... it chaps my lips like crazy... lots of glitter.... color does not stay.... would have loved this if the product's quality was higher... but I guess nothing is ever perfect! love the packaging tho!!
smells nice, looks nice, lovely compact.... as for coverage is very sheer... doesn't control oil..... I had this about 3 years ago... didn't go back to it as I needed something with more coverage and a more velvet texture.... as for the price it is pretty cheap for a such a cute compact, I just wish the powder itself did more
This review is for the old version of the shu uemura curler I have from 2006... I personally used both the shiseido and the shu uemura one... I find the shu curler far superior as it does not end up pulling off my lashes like the shiseido one does. I love the curl from this... it's not weird like all lashes at 90 degrees... it's just at the right angle :) It's perfect and the only curler that works for me all the time... btw fyi I have very short straight lashes and I have tried a dozen of lash curlers out there (Revelon old... Revelon new... 99cent store... etc) and this is by far the best.... all the rest except for the shiseido one didn't do anything except pulling my lashes out
Cleansers -Shu Uemura - Cleansing Beauty Oil Premium A/O

Love the pump for the 450ml size, I am on my second with this! I love how it takes off all my make up completely within seconds!! The only thing that makes removing make up a fast and easy job!! As far as the "anti-oxidant" goes... it doesn't really do much for me but I love the scent of green tea that's why I keep buying this one instead of the others!
Loose Powders -Laura Mercier - translucent loose powder
wanyilee 1/7/2008 5:20:00 PM
I love how this makes my face look matte and sets my make up very well!! :) A little goes a loooonnnnngggggg way as I have already forgotten when I purchased mine and I still have so much left in the jar! If you are looking for a setting powder that would make your skin look more natural after putting on foundation and regular powder, this is it. However if you are looking for a loose powder with some coverage.... don't get this, this doesn't have any coverage at all.
