Applies well with no clumping but flakes throughout the day!
Been using this since mid 2008. Provides light to medium coverage and helps counteract mild redness. Silky smooth texture that applies well. Small shade selection, but Deep blends out nicely on me. This does not get cakey on me.

This product delivers moisture, antioxidants, and other goodies without breaking me out, making my face greasier, or clogging my pores (been using for two months). It leaves a silky finish immediately after application. I love that it is fragrance-free and in stable packaging!
I really wanted to love this blush--it's such a gorgeous color (peachy-pink). The problem is that there is so much shimmer! It literally looks like peachy-pink blush with tons of very fine, silvery shimmer on my skin, not attractive at all. I returned this blush and got MAC Hipness Blush (Fafi collection). It's the perfect peachy-pink shade with almost no shimmer!

This really gave my lashes a lot of omph. It noticeably lengthened and fattened them. Unfortunately, this stuff flakes like crazy and I hate how there is always too much mascara on the comb. It also smudges on me!
Shampoo -L'Oreal - Nature's Therapy Mega Moisture shampoo

This shampoo is great! I could feel the difference as soon as I rinsed it out of my hair. It conditions really well and made my nasty-feeling/looking hair super soft and healthy. It does cause build-up, but what moisturizing shampoo doesn't? I use Suave Daily Clarifying Shampoo every 3-4 days to get rid of any residue.
Conditioner -L'Oreal - Nature's Therapy Mega Moisture Nurturing Creme

This stuff is great! My hair is soft and shiny again; I can't stop touching my hair! I applied the creme on my hair from the ears down. I wrapped my hair in a bun and held it with a clip. Then I put a shower cap over my head and blasted it with some hot hair from my blow dryer for a few minutes. After my hair cooled, I rinsed it with lukewarm water. I could immediately feel the difference, as my hair was so soft! I will update if I find something wrong with this product. The 16 ounce jar is on sale at Sally's for $10!
First off, the smell of this is very overpowering and musky... kind of like incense (and not the good kind of incense either). The smell lingered in my hair all day yesterday and all day today. In fact, my hair still smells musky after shampooing and conditioning with a fruity scent. It didn't make my hair feel or look any better than my usual. At $22, this is a waste of money IMO. Good thing mine was a sample from Sephora.

This smudges on me! This really gave my lashes a lot of omph. It noticeably lengthened and fattened them. I could see this clumping easily, but it's nothing a metal lash comb/spoolie can't fix. Holds curl very well. UPDATE 02/05/2008--This stuff flakes like crazy and I hate how there is always too much mascara on the comb.
This was a great color for contouring, but I had to layer it on several times before the color would show up on me and my skin tone is fair-medium!
I've had this curler for almost a decade and the only reason I no longer use it is because I couldn't find replacement pads for it. It gave great, lasting curl and fit my lash line perfectly. A few months ago, I discovered I could fit Shu Uemura pads in it, so now I use it as a spare!
This curler is great and the trick to use a gentle touch. The construction of the curler and pad is high-quality. It also comes with a replacement pad.
Misc Beauty Tools -Japonesque - Mini Heated Eyelash Curler

I wanted to love this curler so badly! It gave my lashes such great curl, but the curling process was time-consuming and the curl did not hold, with or without mascara! I went back to using my Shu Uemera...
Got this with GWP. The wand has two sides: normal and comb. The comb side leaves lashes clumpy because it deposits too much mascara. I prefer the normal side (which is less full than normal wand bristles), which perfectly separates and defines my skimpy Asian lashes. I like that I can build definition with this formula, as it does not flake or clump. I don't have any problems with smudging and it holds lash curl well; however, this isn't a very dramatic mascara for me. UPDATE 002/05/2008--I now do a few swipes with the brush side, then a few swipes with the comb side, and then finish off with another swipe with the brush side. I'm pretty impressed with this mascara, as I don't have to worry about wiping off excess globs before using. It doesn't clump at all. It holds curl okay, not the best, but it doesn't kill the curl either. No flaking or smuding. I might actually purchase a full-size tube of this.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline - Nightfish from Lure Collection

This was my first product from MAC... I had no idea until now that is was a LE item! I love this eye liner. It wears without a hitch and is fairly easy to apply (I use the 316SE lip brush). However, it does smudge on my lower lash line (but not on my water line), but I have yet to find an eye liner that doesn't.
