I'm shocked at all the neg. reviews about this remover because it is my HG! I've tried lancome bifacil, the dior dual remover, and the chanel one and this is by far my favourite! you don't need to shake it that much for it to mix (like lancome or dior) and it takes off all my eye m/u perfectly. i don't find it overly oily and its very gentle. i still don't get how my experience is so different from the other mua'ers who posted. i have rebought this remover for years now! i love it!
This eye cream is AWESOME!! stupid mac concealer had dried out my under eye terribley and nothing would help. I use la mer and had a la mer eye balm sample and it did nothing. I got this NARS cream and after just using it one night, truly AMAZING results. i woke up and the eye area was still nicely moisturized (not greasey though) and the dryness had improved significantly. kinda pricey but almost half the price of la mer which was total crap. i've never used a skin care product with such quick results. HUGE RAVE!!!!
asian girls this is great for us!!! it totally held my curl (via eyelash curler, of course!) and gave me a ton of volume. its as good if not better than my HG maybelline volum express waterproof. i had bought the non waterproof version of this and was super disappointed, but decided to give the waterproof a try since i've just come to the conclusion that if it ain't waterproof, its not gonna hold my curl. anyways if you know the pain of stick straight lashes run and get this mascara!
I am SOOOO disappointed with this product. i tried it on at the store and it seemed to semi curl my lashes so i thought once i tried it with a eye lash curler it'd be even better. WRONG! it TOTALLY wilted my curl and did nothing for me at all. and at this price, it hurt! after hearing all the raves i expected more, much more! it was good on not flaking and smudging but it doesn't do me any good when my lashes become stick straight and icky after using this mascara. maybe its just cause of my straight asian lashes, but i had a non asian friend try it and she didn't like it either. did i get a bad bottle or something??? *sigh*
Just got this in a swap and I LOVE it. usually i don't touch greens but this had me intriqued. and its not all that green, very wearable! i don't own any colours like this so i am in love. great neutral look that is somewhat different from the norm.
This is by far the best 5 pan they have put out. I actually use all 5 of the colours and they finally put in a useable lip brush instead of that crap playschool paint brush they tried to pass off as what exactly? colours are unique and i love the CC in this. great on the lips too with the clear gloss over top. love it!
Cleansers -Chanel - Gel Tendre Non-Foaming Makeup Remover for Face & Eyes

This is my all time fav cleanser. It gets all my makeup off without over drying which is a big problem i've had with other cleansers. either they would be cleanse well but leave me super dry, or it wouldn't over dry but it wouldn't take any makeup off either. the gel tendre is just right. and it has a very pleasent scent that is not overpowering. its a holy grail!
This is my holy grail bronzer. Its not too orange, not too brown. Gives the perfect bronze/gold glow. Just a touch of this and you instantly look alive and glowy. Sure it was expensive at 38 CAN$ but its worth it. It'll last forever and the packaging is gorgeous. I've tried it on several friends of mine and they all love it too.
i have tried many mascaras but i keep coming back to this one. but i have to stress that there is a HUGE difference between the volume express regular and the waterproof. the regular is horrible! if you check out this mascara you must get waterproof. only mascara that thickens, doesn't smudge and holds my curl perfectly. important for us asian gals as i find most other mascaras wilt my curl in 2 seconds. love it. :)
Highlighters -Chanel - Les Perles de Chanel - Pearl Face Effects

This is the cutest product from chanel. I must admit that part of the love is cause i think the little balls or 'perles' are just so cute. I like to use the balls individually or together on the eyes, or mix it all up and use it as a highlighter for the cheeks. it gives a very light and pretty shimmery look. the texture is creamy but on me it doesn't crease too badly on the eyes. just don't expect the kinda wear you get from mac paints. for me since i'm in canada the price wasn't as brutal, 49 CAN, so i though it was worth it. 65 USD, not so sure.
