Primer/ Corrector -Clinique - Pore Minimizer Instant Perfector

Girls! I think we should read the words on the back of the tube carefully!! When I first got this handy, it didn't seem doing a good job on 'concealing' the pores on my cheeks!! All my foundations didn't go on smoothly too!! I read the back of the tube again, and it said we can actually use it ON TOP OF THE FOUNDATIONS!! I tried this again: foundation, then this Perfector, followed by loose powder!! The effect is WOW and my face looks almost flawless!! (Don't blame this thing. It's just my big pores which can never make my face looks totally flawless!!) For those who found problems with the blending of foundations together with this perfector, you may want to try it again, with applying this after foundations. Hope this helps!!
I admit that the color selection of the Shu e/s is FABULOUS!! The only problem to me is they all tend to crease on my lids. When I read other reveiws, it looks like I'm the odd around here. Anyhow, I won't go for Shu e/s purposely, unless I found a really unique shade that I'm willing to splurge on. Always a BB and Stila girl here!
It was a surprise to me that my sister bought one when I thought I'd missed this LE e/s. To me, it's pretty similar to BB Fawn, I don't know why!! It looks fabulous on my sister, but sad to tell, I couldn't make it work on me. I think I'm an odd here! Nice shade (which I can see from the pot and on my sister's eyes), but I'm not going to keep it.
Cleansers -L'Oreal - Dermo-Expertise Gentle Cleansing Milk

THE BEST drug store makeup remover for me. It's a little greasy even after rinsing though. What I do is to wash my face gently with my routine cleanser. I think we are supposed to do this with all the cleansing milk for oily skinned girls like me, huh?? A great product moreover!!! Will def. repurchase.
A sheer light mauvey on an Asian NC 20 with a pleasant berry scent. But I think I'd prefer Plum Lip Glaze over this one, as this is really too sheer on my lips.
THIS IS DEFINITELY THE BEST MAC LIPGLASS I'VE TRIED SO FAR!!! I'm not a fan of MAC l/g. When I first got this VGV gloss, I regretted cuz it looks too similar to my BB Rose Sugar!! After I've tried this a couple of days, I found this actually looks softer than Rose Sugar!! I'm happy that I bought this when I'm almost finishing Rose Sugar; and I'm happy that this is so sweet and versatile on every skintones!!! For your reference, an Asian NC20 here!

This is a lovely shade. However it's kind of drying out and my lips peeled the next day I wore it. This's just as drying as other MAC lip stuffs, even though it wasn't that dry the first time I wore it. I am going to try ths again with lots of lip balm underneath. If it's still not working well with my lips this week, I'll give this to my sister. I know I won't repurchase this no matter what!!
They are all either drying (like the Frosts, Satins and Tones) or runny (Lustres) on me! I'd prefer lipsticks from GA or other brands for a better quality!
Blush -Laura Mercier - Cheek Colour in Crushed Hazelnut [DISCONTINUED]

This is the best beige/tan blush for this working Asian NC 20 here! I've tried MAC Tenderling, MAc Cubic and some beigey Japnese blushes before. They all tended to look muddy/dirty on me at the end of the day! This one stays truly all day and I'm really impressed.
I love all my Shu Uemura e/s but, as the previous reviewer said, just not this one!! This pink made an Asian NC 20's eyes looked puffy!!!! Hate the silver shimmers as well!! Hmm...I think they are not shimmers! They are actually so big that make themselves SPARKLES inside the pot. Too gritty and they scattered all over my face!! Nothing unique and not a good pick for working days. If you love glittery makeup, go for it and I can tell this really makes your day!! For girls who share similar tastes as I do, this one is just NOT for us!!!!
A perfect rosy-brown for an Asian NC 20. However it seems more like a liquid lipstick to me!! I've tried other Glossimers too (Unity and Blizzard) and love the texture! I'm clueless of why this looks a little different than the others. This explains why I took one point off. Texture is still ok though - you can feel it's still the high-end Chanel texture!I'll keep repurchasing since it's the most perfect shade for me. What I mean here is the most perfect elegant shade for every girl.
I love the Water In Lips lipbalm but not this lip gloss. I would say this is more glittery than shimmery!! When I tried to blot the color off, there were still glitters on my lips. Yes, dirt cheap as a Shiseido product. I prefer all other Shiseido non-drug-store lip glosses over this one though.
This is a lovely shimmery pink with a light tint of brown on an Asian NC20, It didn't look frosty on me at all. however shimmers tend to be little gritty!! I think I'm not a shimmery gloss girl!!!

THE BEST pinky-rose shade for an Asian NC20 lips. It's pricey, but it really worths the price! Subtle shimmers make my lips so pouty and kissable too! I know some people found the brush quite annoying. What I do everytime after applying is to wipe it before putting in back to the tube! This really helps keeping it in good shape!
Greyish and made my lips looked too corpse for an Asian NC20!!! This should look way more better on someone who's fair with no yellowish undertone!!!!!
