Eye Makeup Remover -Clinique - Take The Day Off Eye Makeup Remover

It is such an awesome makeup remover that doesn't leave greasy residue on my face. Most of the makeup removers that have separate layers of water and oil always leave grease on my face. I don't like the feeling that something's on my face, so I can't help but love this product! It's so gentle that in one~two swipes, you can remove all of your makeups easily. It removes my bb cream, eyeshadow, lips, and everything. Especially when I remove black eyeliner, this purple bottle gets rid of the black eyeliner. You wouldn't believe me that I had worn black eyeliner after I removed my makeups. It's a reasonably price, so definitely get this instead of the blue one from Clinique. I will continue buying the purple one again and again.
Eye Makeup Remover -Clinique - Rinse-Off Eye Makeup Solvent

Don't buy this product. For the same price, you can buy the purple bottle from Clinique. The purple one is way better than this blue one. Although you have to mix the oil and water layers, the purple one does its job; it thoroughly removes all the makeup that you put on your face. On the other hand, the blue one can only erase some eyeshadow and leave my black eyeliners on my eyes only to give panda/raccoon eyes. It doesn't completely remove all the makeup. Before I tried the purple one, I thought this blue one was so good because it didn't leave greasy feeling&didn't have to shake it at first. However, I was so wrong!!! Don't ever buy this blue one again.
This is the best lip product for someone who want natural color that lasts long&has spf &moisturizing. I love how the color doesn't pop out like lipstick or too sheer like lip balm. It's the perfect mixture of those two. I'm a college student who want barely-done look, so this lip balm is perfect for me. Although it's $20 I use it everyday, which makes it definitely worthwhile. I think it will take about more than half a year to use it up assuming you wear it everyday lol. This is a definitely must have for me ~~
Asian people recommended this bb cream, so I decided to give it a try. Oh God when I put it on my face my skin instantly looked bright and glowing!! Not only that the texture is so smooth that I can easily spread it all over my face evenly. it lasts more than about 9-10 hours because I looked exactly the same as I put on in the morning! however this might not look very natural on me since I have pink undertone with light Asian skin and this bb completely eliminates my pink cheeks, which I don't have complain at all. The cheek and lip stain look very natural, but doesn't last long like bb cream. However, I always use it as blush for a day ~ I will definitely buy this again when it runs out!! :)
Urban decay is undoubtedly one of the best eyeshadow products !! Although it costs $18, it lasts enough&pays off in the long run. I bought it in the color called Lost, which I use to either put on eyeshadow for a night out or everyday-use eyeliner. I tend to use it for eyeliner because I'm a college student who really doesn't go out that often. You can definitely build up more layers for dramatic look! With my drugstore angled brush, I can draw a simple eyeliner that blends into my skin that it looks really natural and beautiful. Not many recognize that I put it on. On top of that, it lasts the whole day with an eye primer. However, since it's pricey, I recommend you to buy only a few that you can really commit to until they last.
I'm sad that this one is discontinued. Well, it comes out in a new&better formula known as Firming Sleeping Pack. I bought this sleeping pack early this year, and I'm very happy that I purchased it. I bought this from H-Mart cosmetics store for only $20. I think it's WAY better than other high end, expensive American products. You use this once or twice a week. I pamper my skin every week. The day after putting it on, my skin is very smooth and awakened&bright. It never makes my skin dull. The texture is pretty diluted, nowhere near thick. My skin takes a little bit while to absorb it, maybe like 5 min. You can use it on top of other moisturizers you use, which is a really great thing since it doesn't make your skin feel stuffy. I would definitely buy the new formula!! I hear great things about this new formula and can't wait to try that~
BB Cream -Dr. Jart+ - Blemish Balm Cream (black label)

I kept hearing how great Dr. Jart bb cream is, so I decided to give it a try. I was hesitant at first because of the expensive price, about $37 at sephora. When I went back to college this september, I used this bb cream regularly every 2 days or so. So far, this bb didn't really break me out. It doesn't mean that I have problematic skin; my skin is a little bit sensitive and pretty dry. So I don't know about people who have extremely sensitive&acne-prone skin and/or oily skin. I recommend you try it out first before you buy it. Since I have light Asian skin with pink undertone, this bb fit me perfectly!! :) When I applied this, it didn't feel cakey or fake at all !!! The texture is not too diluted or thick--it's in between. I believe it lasts more than 8 hours because I noticed a stain of bb on the cotton pad when I wiped my face with makeup remover before I washed my face. It also has SPF~ it's perfect for winter. One thing that draws me back is the price. It's way too expensive for a college student like me! I don't work during the academic year (my parents don't let me), so I basically don't have that much money. But despite so, I will probably buy this again! This huge bottle lasts a long~~~time for me since I wear it only like every 2-3 days :) I totally recommend buying this bb :D <3
This bb cream is for people who have oily skin although people with dry skin can still use it. I bought this from Amazon for a cheap price, and I liked it. Although the cream has gray undertone, once it's applied on your skin, it oxidizes quickly. This really doesn't have its own 'color' like other typical Korean bb creams do (Korean bb creams are generally whiter because the standard of beauty is white skin, sadly). When I applied it on my face, it was so thick that I only had to use very small amount. I had to be careful not to pump too much. Generally, it gives a very natural look that when I put it on, people think I have nothing on my face. For all Asian girls who have oily&tanned skin, I strongly recommend this product!
I'm a college student who prefers not too natural, but barely done makeup looks. My aunt gave me this palette for gift. So far I love it!! First of all, the colors are divided into three sections for separate looks. For a beginner like me, this division helped me choose colors wisely. I use Fashion section for going out because the yellow and greenish eyeshadow really stand out in my opinion. It doesn't look cakey. Rather, it helps me blend the colors easily because of soft texture. I was surprised that this shadow goes on really smoothly on my eyes. I use the Day and Classic for daily looks. This eyeshadow is a perfect mix of shimmer and matte colors. If applied with an eyeshadow primer, it even lasts longer. I strongly recommend this to all the women who want something in between no-makeup makeup and all-out party night makeup.
