totally rock! I use it to apply mineral powder foundation and it blends it really well . This $3 brush does not shed at all! What an amazing quality brush for this cheap. I am sure I can get more use of it but now I only have one. Will buy a couple more and stock up.
Treatments (Eye) -Christian Dior - Capture Totale Eye

I've been using this 5ml deluxe sample day and night for over a month. It's quite nice in texture. Very rich but not sticky. It absorbs quickly and leaves my under eyes well moisturized. 2 weeks into this I noticed the deep line under my right eye is visibly reducing. I was very thrilled. I wanted to buy it right away but the price is a draw back...$85 is just too expensive. Later on I noticed that the improvement has slow down and may be because it's too rich I started getting these little clear bumps under my eyes. I don't think this is the right eye cream for my age. Therefore I won't purchase a full size at this time. Maybe 20 years from now I'll give it a shot.
could be the worse Lancome mascara I ever tried. It clumps it flakes it do nothing to add length or volume. It does not hold up curl. the fragrance is unnecessary and it's too strong.
Liquid -La Mer - Skincolor De La Mer The Treatment Fluid Foundation SPF 15

Coverage is sheer. It transfers easily. And it broke me out. My cousin was right. They don't do makeup right.
It doesn't hold up the curl for me but it does add volume to my lashes. It doesn't flake but it clumps a bit. It's not a bad mascara but if Definicils is still out there I would prefer that over Hypnose.
This mascara flakes and clumps on me. I'm Asian and I think the wand is too big to work with. Because of this I always make a mess while using it. I prefer Lancome Mascaras with a straight wand. Like Definicils or Hypnose. I like the formula of those two better. They don't flake. And they don't have fragrance like this one does, which could be quite annoying.
Too soft to be used as brows pencil.
Liquid -Vichy - Aera Teint Pure Fluid Foundation Finish Up to 12 Hour Wear

This foundation is easy to blend and has a light to medium coverage. It doesn't look powdery or cakey. But it doesn't last long. 3 to 4 hours is all it takes to melt it down to the point where you lose all your coverage. if you live in a hot climate or sweat a little bit it goes even faster. It might be more suitable for people with dry skin living somewhere cold. No wonder they don't sell it in the US. One more thing you need to know is never wear light color cloths when you wear this foundation because it transfer very easily. I give it a 2 for the nice texture but I will not purchase it again. In fact, I can't quit blaming myself for wasting money on this while I have something better already.
Mascara -Tarina Tarantino - Fleur De Lash in Black Opal

I wasted 100 Sephora points on this. The brush is too big to work with. It could easily make a mess because of it. The mascara itself does not do anything for me. Does not add length does not add volume neither. Although it doesn't smudge but it flakes. And it also makes my eyes itchy. It might work for other people but I would not spend $19 on this.
Coverage is too full to be called LIGHT. Too drying and turns orange on me.
Blush -Biotherm - Blush! Smooth Powder Blush - #10 (baby pink)
mi2092 11/5/2011 12:10:00 AM
This is the best color I can ever find for my skin tone. it's a matte pale pink and it works well on my medium fair skin tone. the sales representative tried it on my cheek and also used it as a eye shadow and I was completely sold. As much as i love the color but I did not adore it at the beginning. it was so hard to pick up the color. I've tried real hair and synthetic hair brushes. Wasted 2/3 of the product but never really able to truly enjoy the healthy looking color I got like the sales rep. did. recently I bought the E.L.F Mineral Angled Blush Brush and it's an amazing brush for this product. The true color comes out in just two swipes and it looks so naturally healthy on me. I used the left over on the brush to swipe my eye lids and there we go! So soft and so out standing! And the color stay on all day. I know a lot of Asian like to use blush and a lot of them prefer color that pops or being very visible. But this is actually a very nice soft color for Asian skin. I will repurchase this again. But I can't find it in the US or on Biotherm's website. Maybe they already discontinued it. If anyone know where I can buy this blush or know of another blush that can replace it please please let me know.
Makeup Brushes -E.L.F. - Mineral Angled Blush Brush

I wonder if some of the reviewers had mistaken this brush with the $1 E.L.F Essential Blushing, Bronzing and Blending Brush. Because there are a few reviews kept saying this brush is $1... This the $5 Mineral Angled Blush Brush with white bristles and bamboo handle. The one on the right in the first picture and the one in the middle in the second picture. I think this is a great blush brush. The hair is soft soft soft yet it picks up the color very very well. Great quality for $5. Kind of on the expensive side of E.L.F products and I don't really see them go on sale. Like the angle too it's great for contouring. I have a blush that has great color but all of the brushes I own do not pick up the color (I tried real hair and synthetic hair brushes). I ended up losing 2/3 of the blush without ever looking good. Now I use this brush for the rest and it's just amazing. It picks up enough color in two swipes. I am sure it will work great on other blushes too. Love it Love it! The only complaint I have is that the brush head is pretty small. It doesn't do too well on blending. So I use this brush to apply and contour then I use a powder brush to blend. I will purchase it again if I have to but it hasn't shed a single hair yet.
Lip Treatments -Fresh - Sugar Rose Lip Treatment SPF 15
mi2092 11/3/2011 6:45:00 PM
I gave it all 5 in all the rating. Of course not a good thing for price. Yeah...the price, the only drawback :( This lip treatment is so soft and moisturizing. Honestly the best I've ever used. I have uneven lip color but this shade covers it pretty good. Also soften my whole look. On the days when I'm wearing light makeup I put this on and I look so naturally glowing and healthy. I can't get my eyes off the mirror *_* Best of all, it has SPF 15. So I definitely will repurchase it again and again. AH! love the smell of it too <3
A luxury to have. Very expensive though :( It does an above average job on plumping lips. Smells minty and slightly tingling. Adds a nice shine to your lips and it moisturizes well. I use it on top of lip stick or under lip gloss with color. Helps the color stay longer. I introduced this lip maximizer to friends and family and they all love it.
Very nice lip gloss. It's not too thick. Glides on easily and the shine last for hours. Compare to some of the lip glosses I own this is not sticky. I never have to spend money on them as I got them as gifts. But this is something that I would spend money on. I don't expect the color would last long. I always use mine on top of lip stick to add shine. And I think it makes my lips look fuller. I truly like how it won't dry out my lips. And it won't leave dead skin or white stuff on lips. Although it didn't claim to moisturize your lips but I think it does for me.
