I got it in a gift set and has become one of my holy grail lipsticks. It's one that I keep going back to when I don't know what to wear and when I'm looking for something universally flattering with any outfit, evening or day. I'm asian with light skin and this lipstick flatters whatever I wear it with- dark eyeshadow, light eyeshadow, bronzer, pink cheeks, red cheeks. When I'm done with my current tube, I will be happy to pay for another one. Aside from the great color, it's also moisturizng!

This is a good pressed powder that goes on smoothly and lightly. It mattifies right away but does not last as long as I'd like it to. I found a good match for my skin color and I will probably continue to use it until I find something better.
Blush -Shiseido - Accentuating Color Stick - S2 Peach Flush

I really wanted to love this, but I can't say that I do. I'm a big fan of shiseido products in general. The packaging of these color sticks is great and the lasting power is pretty good. The main problem I have with it is that I think the color looks artificial. It's a bright color and all you need is a very little amomunt of it on your cheeks. It's also very expensive....I certainly don't like it enough to spend $30 on it again. I plan on continuing to use it and since I use so litte of it each time, the one tube will likely last years for me.
Sunscreen -Shiseido - Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion SPF 55 PA+++ [DISCONTINUED]

Great sunscreen lotion for the face. It really lasts and stays on like no other product on the market. It does not run! It's also non-oily and does not break out my skin. This is my HG moisturizer for the summer!
I really wished this product would have a big impact on my lashes. Instead, it did nothing! Absolutely nothing! I was diligent in applying it in the morning and at night for months but I noticed absolutely no difference.
A fantastic product that simply does what it says it does. It's very effective in leaving your skin smooth and clean. Some scrubs leave a film on your skin and this does not! Overall, it's a decently-priced high quality product. It's definitely my go-too scrub.
I'm another newly-minted fan of Kai. The fragrance is just wonderful. I love how it melts into your skin and just lasts. Another big plus is the tiny packaging that I can take anywhere with me. Oh yeah- men seem to adore the smell of it!
A great product that does what it promises- hydrates!! I get immediate results when I use this product. My face feels moisturized and fresher from this. You can even leave it on longer (like all night) for intense relief. Fantastic!! Great product for the money.

Given how expensive it is, I don't use it everyday. I save it for when I wake up and look like I was hit in both eyes while I was sleeping. Seriously, this product works for me. The scent isn't for everyone but it's a small price to pay when you see how it reduces the puffiness and lightens the dark circles. I put it on right after I shower and by the time I'm ready to put my makeup on, I notice a big improvement in how my eyes look. I can't wait to try more yonka products!
I'm a big fan of shiseido foundations (I own and love the stick foundation, powder foundation and ultimate sun protection liquid foundation) but this particular foundation really disappointed me. I have combination skin and after only an hour with this foundation on, my face looked like it had been smeared with olive oil. If you have oily or combination skin, stay away from this product.
Overall, a great product that does what it claims to. It takes off all my eye makeup gently. For this price, it's definitely my HG eye makeup remover.
I absolutely love this foundation. I have combination skin and have always been afraid of stick foundations because I thought they would be too dry on me and would make my skin look flakey, but this stick foundation is an absolute miracle. It glides on beautifully and gives you a soft natural finish and good coverage. The spf is a great bonus. It's so easy to put on and portable. The packaging is beautiful and the ingredients are top-notch! At $35, I'll repurchase over and over again.
I used this product last winter and I just bought another tub for this winter. I find it to be an effective moisturizer for night use. It is very greasy and it smells kinda like peanut butter. I am willing to put up with these two negatives because it does effectively moisturize my dry skin during the colder months. It's also a great deal- only about $14 for a tub! I've spent much more on heavy duty face creams that don't moisturize nearly as well as this. Like everybody else, I'm not a fan of the packaging but I can live with it.
This product does nothing for me. It doesn't irritate my skin nor does it improve it in any way. I'll finish the tube but I definitely won't repurchase as the initial purchase was a waste of money for me.
I personally like this a lot. I have berry which is deep pinkish/red and sparkly. It's quite moisturizing and smells divine. It comes in a plastic chapstick like tube which makes it easy to put it on quickly and does not require a mirror. Overall, it's really good lipstick for the money.
