I love this thicking cream. sometime I mix with redken thickeing lotion. make my hair volume sometime too big hair.
it's didn't do anything with my hair. my hair got just little volume for maybe about 2 hour. it might be ( not sure) work with really thin hair type as it's so light.
my hair is fine with baby soft 2A. most thickening product's makes my hair huge cotton candy big with no bounce. but this redken thickening lotion and Redken - Aerate 08 Bodifying Cream Mousse makes my hair swingy bounce thick look. esp next day. I wash my hair at night , apply mix the two.then sleep. next morning my hair is swingy bounce!! I don't apply around root because my scalp is sensitive. I also mix this lotion whatever other styling product's.

wow! this is one of only few hair styling can make my hair volume.

BODIFYING GLAZE .
I never had planing to use oil because so many oil treatment cause my scalp itchy! crazy itchy. however nice lady from hair board sent me brand new this oil. but I haven't try it for while because I thought I have no luck with any oil treatment with my scalp. I've had try cocnut oil. apricot oil. tea tree oil. lavender oil etc. all of them cause my scalp itchy and got small bump all over my scalp.end up I have to use strong steroid lotion from Dr.( I also tried many shampoo and conditioner for oily scalp or scalp ploblem like PM tee tree, redken cleansing, Nioxin. clunicure, boseley. Nizoral. head & sholeder , babay shampoo.aubley organic. california baby. kerastase.clean & clear ect ) I did try most salon product's & drug store brand. I also had try conditioner cleansing. tried shampoo every day or every other day. my scalp is dry , tend to be oily after 5-8 hour shampoo. also very sensitive scalp which make burning with itchy. but I don't have any flake. one day my scalp is itchy and burning pain as usual at temple area and nape area.so I decided to try this oil to see what happens? get worse or get better? I felt whatever I do try at this point. wow !!! I was so surprised this oil made my scalp calm down in 1 hour.the scalp pain ( burning feel ) gone after 30min.. now I can't live without it. I use this oil whatevet my scalp itchy or pain. sometime I apply it before go bed then wash next moring. I did ask to Philip B that if I can use it daily. philip B CS told me that I it can use as daily.
Eye Shadow -Chanel - Illusion d'Ombre - Fantasme #81
aizen 4/12/2012 12:06:00 AM
I bought Fantasme because it's so populer and good rate at @ comse which Japanese cometic rating site. so far I own #83 Illusoire #84 Epatant #85 Mirifque I love all of them .I decided to try this #81. I use this at middle of lower lash line to make my very dark brown eye's more stand out ( my eye's is more black than dark brown) make my eyeball more darker ( as contrast and refrection) and wet looks.also I am using it with other eyeshadow which some boring color . old boring eyeshadow can be vivrant with it. some people might to not like the glitter as it's kind of big glitter than any other Illusion d'Ombre eyeshadow. one thing bother me is the price. other color is worth the price but I am not sure if fantasme is...
Treatments -Joico - k-pak deep penetrating reconstructor
aizen 3/25/2012 4:24:00 AM
there is lot of enough good review. so I will skip my review. but I would like to add about how often this should use . I had ask to hair stylist & people ( hair care board) but all answer was diffrent. some says once 2 weeks, some says once a week. ofcorse depends on each hair condition. my hair is dameged ( heat/hot roller/ hair dye) lot of brakege & shedding. so I sent E-mail to Joico to ask how often is safe to use. also I was told at hair care board that I should use it before hair color but NOT after. this is answer from Joico. Q *HOW OFTEN & HOW LONG A * Step 1 K-PAK SHAMPOO Gently cleanses as it reconstructs to restore hair's elasticity, strength and shine. May be used daily. Step 2 K-PAK CONDITIONER Delivers the precise amount of daily conditioning needed to reconstruct the hair internally and at the cuticle level. May be used daily. Step 3 K-PAK DEEP-PENETRATING RECONSTRUCTOR Offers the maximum in hair reconstruction and protection, restoring weak and damaged hair to its original strength and condition. Product Usage: 2-3 times per week. Apply to freshly shampooed hair for 5 minutes (no heat) Step 4 K-PAK INTENSE HYDRATOR Restores moisture to overly dry, damaged hair, leaving it softer, shinier and more hydrated and manageable. ProductUsage: 2-3 times per week. Apply to freshly shampooed hair for 5 minutes (no heat) *Intense Hydrating Treatment may be used by itself or after K-PAK Reconstructor Q * AFTER OR BEFORE HAIR COLOR? A. It is perfectly safe to color your hair before or after using the treatment.
First I am big fan of k-pak deep penetrating reconstructor K-Pak Intense Hydrator、 K-Pak Color Therapy。 After I read good review I did try the RivitaLuxe. I am asin with long hair which fine / coarse hair and lot of dameged by hair dye for cover the gray every month for past 5years. there is lot of brakege and shedding ,but no any spilit end. the brakege caused my hair uneven the hem line. my stylist point out about it and told me to take care more and more wow. Rivitaluxe made my hair like silk!!! not pnly strong but soft. however my hair seems flat , I think it's because too silky ( I mean not weight down) I haven't used to have such silky hair so I feel bit feel strange. I feel like I just come back from hair salon with nice blow dry. I am really recommend this to whom had brakege and dameged hair. ADD I thought my hair is dameged but 3 hair stylist told me that I am not. I haven't use Rivitaluxe any longer cause it makes my hair butter soft silky which looks weight down my hair.I want to volume!! price is not bad if you think this result.
I am Asian/ very pale skin with cool tone, very very dark eye. almost black. ( also I was told that I am cool tome by Color cordinater) always I am looking for color which makes my eye pop out. ( stand out ) my fave is nars surabaya ( light side of the duo) sex kitten is much more reddish than surabaya this eyeshadow makes my eyes really stand out. I love it!!!
I am really in love most this brush set. only one brush I didn't like is the powder brush ( powder brush my fave is Hakuhodo and koyudo) it's too soft and doesn't pick up color well. but it's ok. 5 brush for $65. it's very good deal compare hakuhodo or any other HE brush. I was trying to buy the pro Brush #56 and concealer brush, but sephora SA told me that this set's #56 and concealer brush is better. so I decided to try this set. I haven't use pro #56. so I don't know what's the diffrence but I am glad that I got this set. please make sure that opne brush case to make sure all brush in it. as I saw couple brush is missing when I did check it at sephora. I will koyudo liquid foundation brush review too.
Eyeliner -MAC - Pearlglide Intense Eye Liner in Undercurrent
aizen 12/27/2010 6:53:00 PM
Undercurrent is very beautiful green with glitter. I noticed that UD's covet is same color but covet don't have the glitter. Covet is also beautiful however I love undercurrent than UD's covet. because I only use undercurrent lower corner lush line. so I want to more showing!
I am Asian and very dark eye's with NC10-15. I read hundred's good review of nars Surabaya at Japanese site,also all over in the japanese Magazine. I would not buy brown suger color brown ( reddish?) if I didn't read the hunred good review.I use the reddish brown side lower lush line with Mac dark mocha ( which DS) & use other one underneath of black eye liner. I don't use them on my eye lid. wow! this reddish color one make my dark brown eye more stand out. my sephora has not this color so I had to order it from Nars.
I am Asian/ cool tone/pale skin. all my fav pink blush are from Japanese Brand. I've beem looking for cool tone very light baby pink blush since my big fave testimo's pink blush is discontinued in the Japan. I did try chanel narcisse blush however it's bit matte on my skin and it's more neon light pink on my skin. also I did try the MAC well dressed. it's cute pink but I wanted to more shimmer. sylph is does show up well on my skin( by Japanese Yachiyo brush) , it's icy pink with nice shimmer finised.it's might be too soft for night out but it's very beautiful soft baby pink at day time. <- for people who has pale skin don't want to be over done. I did apply it top of the chanel Irreelle Blush-26 Neroli Rose, it made more soft foucus & love it! I use this blush when I want to focus more my skin as porcelain skin finished , + I apply nymph pressed shimmer powder top on this blush to pollised shimmer looks. also it has small glitter. if people loves more pigment. then it might be something what you are looking for. make sure this blush is very light pink with shimmer glitter .
