I just bought my second bottle. This cleansing oil takes off all makeup including my waterproof mascara and eyeliner. Even the Laneige cleansing oil didn't perform this well. And i can get it for RM46 compared to RM100+ for a Shu Uemura cleansing oil. It has no fragrance, leaves ur skin smooth and clean. I do double cleanse with another face wash, though. Most important of all, did not break me out.
A very bright orangey, coral color. Livens up your complexion. Very pigmented. It has a creamy texture and does not make my lips dry. Love the packaging. Only problem is it has terrible staying power.
Treatments -Garnier - Synergie Pure - SOS Anti-Blemish Pen

Every time i look for a new pimple cream, i end up buying this again. This works best on pimples that are starting to turn big. I don't have major acne problems, so i don't know how it will work on bigger pimples. It goes on clear, might sting a little bit but just for awhile. It really tones down the redness of the pimple and it doesn't dry out the skin around the pimple area. I'm ok with the pen like packaging. I squeeze a little on my fingers and apply. Affordable and will purchase again.
Primer/ Corrector -Make Up For Ever - Corrective Makeup Base

I have the one in #0. It does make my complexion smoother after i apply powder on top, but doesn't really help with pore coverage on my nose area. In fact, it makes my nose area shinier. I do see a slight glow to my complexion but not enough for me to rave about it. I don't mind the plastic squeeze tube because i find it slim and light and convenient to travel with. I am currently using Diorsnow ultra protective base and it works better for me. I might try MUFE's HD primer when i finish it.
Moisturizers -Eucerin - Hydro-balance Moisturizing cream [DISCONTINUED]

I just bought my second jar. I like how well this cream spreads and it doesn't leave a sticky film on your skin. It's a very good basic moisturizer. I have dry combination skin and this works well for me. It costs around RM62 and it can last me up to 3 months. I use this twice daily. The only thing that i don't like is the glass jar.
Lipstick -Christian Dior - Rouge Dior Replenishing Lipcolor (New Formula)

I have this in AVA PINK 547. I like this lipstick because it is so moisturising. My lips feel soft even after the lipstick is removed. This lipstick is light, creamy and has no strong fragrance to it. Nice, elegant dark blue packaging.
Eye Primer -Clarins - Instant Light Eye Perfecting Base
Kizzes 2/15/2009 12:07:00 AM
I'm happy with this product. But be careful when u use it for the first time. I had to click the pen for a long time for the product to flow out, and when it did, too much came out and was wasted. I like how the color blends well with my skin. It really does brighten up my lids. When i use an under eye concealer, my upper lids still look dull and dark. I used to just pat some powder on, but this Instant Light Eye Perfecting Base really does make a difference. Only need to brush on a little onto my lids and i smoothen it out with my fingers. There's no unpleasant smell. The best part is my eye liner and eye shadow doesn't crease because of this. That's why i wanted to try this product at the first place. Well, it hasn't failed me so far. It's selling for RM75 and i find that to be a reasonable price for a product from Clarins. Will buy again.
Lotions/ Creams -Origins - Gloomaway Grapefruit Body Souffle

Refreshing! I love this! It smells so fresh and yummy. The texture is soft and absorbs well. The whole room smells wonderful after using this. And the yellow and white packaging gives it a cheerful, bright, get up and go feel to it. I use it together with the shower gel and scrub. Smells so much better than The Body Shop's pink grapefruit.
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation
Kizzes 9/26/2008 1:31:00 PM
I got this as a sample. My color is #125 and this foundation gives you a dewy soft look. Blends easily, isn't thick which gives you a nice comfortable feeling. It really makes u look fresh. Might get the full size one but am going to try the Lift Liquid foundation first to compare.
Blends easily. I have dry fine lines under my eyes and i find that this concealor is hydrating enough and doesn't accentuate them too much, compared to the Camouflage Pot. My color is #2 and it covers up my dark circles fairly well. I like that it comes in a tube instead of a pot or jar. It does crease a little bit but it's not too bad. I think the price is reasonable and i'll most probably get another tube. I find that this doesn't cover dark circles very well. Will not be purchasing again.
Powder -Make Up For Ever - Duo Mat Powder foundation
Kizzes 9/26/2008 6:52:00 AM
I like this powder. I have dry skin with a slightly oily nose. It gives me a fresh and brightening look. Skin looks soft. I apply it with a light hand using a face brush. This powder gives off a nice natural look. So if u are looking for something that gives really full coverage, this might not suit you. However, do not use a thick moisturizer or sunscreen under Duo Mat because it will become cakey. But when used with a light moisturizer, it goes on better and smoothly. I will definitely repurchase. Packaging is simple. Not as classy as Dior's or YSL's. comes with a puff but don't really like the half moon mirror.
Bought and used this together with the shampoo which i've also reviewed. Again, i find my hair is quite dry after use. It smells great and is soft but dry.
It smells really nice and fresh. Cleanses my hair and scalp well. Nice packaging, blue and white. However, my long striaght hair tends to get slighty frizzy at the ends. Not moisturizing enough. Quite expensive and will not purchase again as i feel that with the same price i could get better hair products like Kerastase or Redken.
What caught my eye was the bright color of the packaging :-) Cheerful bright green. Also liked the fact that it's a 2 in 1 product. It has a slight fragrance to it, like mint. Doesn't leave a white cast over the face. It's creamy, and when it's dry, it gives a shiny look but it's not greasy to the touch. Without powder on top, i don't think it will look too great. So far, no breakouts. Most probably will buy again.
