Highlighters -Shiseido - The Makeup Accentuating Color Stick S6 Champagne Flush
charchy 4/20/2010 11:30:00 AM
Definitely will buy it again! It is a perfect product. It provides the perfect lightening for my skin. I used half of the stick already. Really happy with it.
One of the best lip glosses from l'oreal. I don't remember the shades I have, but they look lighter when they are on the lips. Not sure about 6 hours or not, since I have food often..but it stays on for a very decent amount of time. In my opinion, only two lip glosses from loreal can be given a "5". This is one of those two.
Eye Shadow -Boots - No 7 Stay Perfect Eye Mousse in Khaki

I would like to give it a 3.5/5. I use my finger tip to put it on, it is not very easy to even out and the effect is very sheer. However if you manage to even it out, it has a very beautiful effect as a base layer. A little goes a long way so I don;t think I need to buy it again...
Lip Gloss -Burt's Bees - Super Shiny in NECTAR NUDE
charchy 1/2/2009 11:19:00 PM
I don't particularly like other lip product from burts bee. However this one surprised me since it is not waxy, it moisturizes just enough without being too shinny. Yes, it is not shiny at all which I like very much. Although it doesn't last long enough on my lips (couple of hours maybe), my lips feel good though without reapplying it immediately. I think the price is a little bit high for this one though.
Conditioner -Burt's Bees - Super Shiny Grapefruit and Sugar Beet Conditioner

It is a wonderful product. I have oily hair and I can use it everyday. It cleans well without stripping at all.
Powder -Neutrogena - Mineral Pressed Powder Foundation

o.k. First of all, it took me a minute in figuring out this review IS what I look for and it is "Neutrogena® Mineral Sheers™ Powder Foundation Compact". In short, I fell in love with it in just one day. It is 10000+ times better than the brush version. It gets me great coverage without having to put on a lot of powder; it stays put all day and I basically don't feel it throughout the day. When I go home and look at myself, I still look very good (of course I will be olier than the morning which always happens). Before this one Loreal Natural mineral powder was my favorite and I still like that one. Compared to Loreal one, this one feels lighter on skins. Hope this helps.
Skincare - Body -Neutrogena - Comforting Butter Hand Cream

It is a think cream to begin with but when you put it on and rub it, it becomes a little bit runny and sinks in really fast. I never had a hand cream with this sort of feature. It isn't greasy or sticky. A little bit goes a long way. The most important, it moisurizes very well on my hands. Sorry for those who hated it.
Absolutely love it! Lasting power is ok for me. A little is needed every time. Smells awesome! And so cheap. It beats my favorite lip balm (because of the price) which is from Befine and cost me $22.
Lip Treatments -Elizabeth Arden - Eight Hour Sheer Lip Tint in Honey
charchy 1/18/2008 4:37:00 PM
scent is weird... It is colorless, sheer and glossy which is good. Texture is nice. You will have to keep re-applying it (every 1 hour maybe?)...if you are ok with this, then it is perfect. It consumes really quick...not worthy the price. I like the 8 hour body cream so much...it kind of disappointed me.
Lip Gloss -Cover Girl - WetSlicks Lip Gloss (general)
charchy 1/17/2008 5:01:00 AM
It ACTUALLY surprised me when I applied it for the first time. It is moisturizing, lasting, not fading, not sticky. I think it is much better than my lancome juicy tube. At this price, I am completely satisfied. I kinda hope it lasts even longer though.
I used it only once since I just bought it. I liked it very much. It is better than other drugstore brand lip-stain type lip colors. It is not drying my easily-dired lips at all. One should give it a shot. I have it in 20 tea rose. I actually think this is the only color I will like from this line....
Blush -L'Oreal - True Match Superblendable Blush in Baby Blossom
charchy 1/17/2008 4:34:00 AM
I use it as a highlighter cause there isn't any blushing effect from it. I love it during shool days. It is easy to apply and lasts for a good amount of time (certainly thru morning and afternoon). When it is on sale, it is just a good deal.
Treatments -Burt's Bees - Burt's Bees Miracle Salve
charchy 1/17/2008 4:28:00 AM
I love it. My skin is oily but in winter it can be very dry. Especially after I shower, I sometimes see flaky areas (like on the forehead) from my face. This stuff is a life saver. It feels oily by hands but your face won't. The point is it moisturizes right away. You might say, so what, it is just a moisturizer. What I feel is it builds a solid and strong, yet feels very good, wall on top of skin. And skin stays soft for long time. I have not tried it enough like what the box suggests yet. Basically it says you can put it anywhere you feel dry, like your body and hair. Hope somebody else will update about it more...
Lip Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Befine Lip Serum with Chamomile & Beets
charchy 1/17/2008 4:14:00 AM
A big 5! I actually have tried half of the Befine products so far (they are new so there are not so many are out there). What I like best from Befine are this lip serum and the neck cream. Then is the night cream. The rest of what I tried, such as the eye cream, gentle cleanser, brown sugar exfoliating cleanser... I don't think they worth the price at all. I would say this lip serum although IS expensive for the amount, it is completely worth it!! I agree completely with what the previous two reviewer said which almost are identical to what I experience with this serum. Just you will have to practice a little to pump it using small force in order not to waste the product---a little bit is enough and this bottle will last forever. I agree there are other less expensive lip balm which will work too (I myself is a big fan of collecting lip balms since I don't drink enough water everyday, I know it is not good, so I ended up with flaky lips since middle school); but if you don't mind the price, this one is the final solution. :)
Moisturizers -Avalon Organics Botanicals - Lavender Renewal Facial Serum
charchy 1/16/2008 1:37:00 AM
It is a very soothing and somewhat moisturizing lotion. I use it before winter facial cream and I feel good with it. It sinks in really fast and I think my skin is very happy with it. Update on Feb 4/2008: rate down to 3. I suspect this one made me break out, it was only one or two and I am still not sure if it was this one. It is very likely though...
