I'm on my second bottle. Likely would be my last. I do think this is a good eye makeup remover. It's effective and the price is resonable. But lately I've been having bad reaction after using it. It leaves my eyes feeling dry and tired (the feeling you would have when your eyes are tired. Couldn't find a better word to describe it.) sometimes my upper eyelids would be swollen after using it. And it will last for a whole day. I'm not saying this is a bad product. It just doesn't work for me anymore. I'm switching to coconut oil. For 1/10 of the price without the negative effects.
Makeup Brushes -Sonia Kashuk - pointed foundation brush
mi2092 6/3/2012 4:52:00 AM
Like everybody said, it is great for blending concealer rather than foundation. The size and shape make it easy to use even on places like the side of your nose. And it's soft. Doesn't leave Streak mark. It's always good to have a nice brush like this to make the procedures quick and easy. For $12.99 this brush is a good investment.
Brows -Christian Dior - Diorshow Brow Styler Ultra-Fine Precision Brow Pencil
mi2092 5/28/2012 5:38:00 PM
It was my luck to run into Dior's national artist Rita Brown at Macy's! She did a simple everyday look for me and I ended up buying this eye brow pencil (because I already have everything else she used on me). It's such a nice product to have. No need to sharpen, no need to grab a separate brush after applying. The texture is more like powder than wax. Best of all, the color is universal. Save me from killing brain juice trying to decide which color I should buy! It is easy to use even for brow shaping dummy like me. And the staying power is wonderful as well. The only draw back is it costs 29 dollars for 0.003oz. Which is less than one gram. I think it will only last for three months. But I will repurchase for sure.
Eye Shadow -Lancome - Color Design - The New Black
mi2092 3/22/2012 4:24:00 PM
I got this as a GWP. The New Black burns my eye lids so bad that it left scar. I AM SO MAD!!! My skin type is normal. I don't normally get reaction from products. If it burns my eye lids like this it's got to be some very harsh chemical in it.
Shampoo -Pantene - Fine Hair Solutions - Flat to Volume

It gives me a very itchy dry scalp, to the point I almost pull my hair out. I use the matching conditioner but it does nothing neither.
Treatments (Eye) -Garnier - Anti dark circle roller
mi2092 1/17/2012 6:05:00 PM
It's an average product. but one of the best of Garnier skin care products. If you have really bad dark circles don't count on it to cover them. It's very sheer and only gives a little bit of coverage. But it leaves a nice finish. Makes you look more awake. I don't mind using it on a casual day with a tinted moisturizer. But I will not repurchase due to the fact that this is more like a tinted concealer than a eye treatment to me.
Foundations -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-In-One

I see no difference at all after applying. it does nothing like it says! don't waste your money.
BB Cream -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector - Light/Medium

it does nothing like it says! don't waste your money on this.
The best I've ever use. I bought it at Sephora in Canada. For $24 CAD I believe. Online they sell it for $19 USD (they said they are US web site and only ship to US address but they charge you in Canadian dollar therefore you have to pay the exchange rate. so weird! I am waiting for their explanation.) I had used at least 5 different eyelash curlers from different brands. All from drug stores. some of them didn't give me the curl i want. they make your lashes into a 90 degree angle and that's what they call a curl. some of them don't last. 3 months of use and they are done. some of them are even worse. pinch your skin, pull your eye lash... I had one that ripped 1/5 of my lashes off one time. OUCH! Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler is worth the price. I've been using it for more than 6 months and it still look and feel brand new. it gives me a nice natural curl. and it never pinch my skin or pull out lashes. which is great. I recently purchase another one as a back up since it's 20% off. But I believe I won't be breaking into this new one for a long time.
Highlighters -Maybelline - Mineral Power Illuminating Powder
mi2092 11/28/2011 4:54:00 AM
why didn't i listen to all the reviews?! although i bought it for half price but still it's a waste of money. the glitter is too much and too big. on top of that the powder is shimmery. I think I can say this is a shimmery powder with a lot of glitter that doesn't last long on your face. Please don't waste your money on this.
Blush -L'Oreal - True Match Superblendable Blush in Baby Blossom
mi2092 11/28/2011 4:47:00 AM
this blush is easy to pick up and very easy to blend. however it does not show on my medium skin. I have to layer it a lot to make it show a little bit. it does not stay long neither. by the end of the day it's pretty much gone. I was looking for a peach or coral color but all the color they have seem too dark. Seems to me their true match line makeup are for people with fair skin tone. since i can't find a color i truly like, I will not purchase again. but this product is pretty good thou. for the price and for the size.
Treatments (Eye) -Shiseido - The Skincare Eye Moisture Recharge
mi2092 11/27/2011 4:41:00 AM
It's really oily. It just stays on the skin. Not pretty :(
It smells horrible. I mean what kinda milk and honey smells like strong cheap fragrance? I used it at night but the next morning my lips are still dry and flaky. totally useless to me. I didn't hesitate when I throw it away.
I don't use it during the day. It makes your lips look white. I bought it to use as a lip makeup remover/massage cream. I apply it after shower and wait about 5 to 10 minutes. then I use a Q tip to wipe it off. It takes off the left over lip color and dead skin. It's ok as a lip moisturizer. But it doesn't make your lip looks younger or anything.
This $1 eyeliner is good to have when you are traveling. It won't leak and the color is pretty intense. But it seems to dry out really fast though. It didn't even last me a month. I like how easy it is to control because the tip is hard and the handle is long enough. This won't be my HG but it will be the first choice if I'm out traveling and forgot to bring eyeliner.
