This is such a great product, as previous reviews have stated. It's so affordable. I haven't tried UDPP myself because I'm put off by the pricetag. Just give this product a go!

i love these so much!! i've bought 5 colors in total =D. non-drying matte lippies, very pigmented, dirt cheap -well in indo at least-. they dont sell all of the shades here (i've had to buy nude attitude from the US. cocoa craving also isnt available here). the packaging is also sleek, i love the clear plastic on top so you can immediately see which color it contains.
I'm not sure which one i've purchased (it has red writings on it), but i suspect it's the one for normal skin.. which works perfectly fine, btw. The consistency isnt too thick, quite runny in fact compared to B&C's. It cleans out stubborn waterproof liquid eyeliner so quite happy about that. Price range is affordable. Doesn't have a distinctive smell which many girls love. It does leave you feeling clean without drying the skin, yet it doesn't feel oily. so all in all a top product! if only they supplied it in jakarta's muji, it'd be PERFECT.
A very decent c/o, although it didnt remove all my eyemakeup perfectly. my eyeliner is VERY stubborn waterproof, so i have to go over it just on the eyes.. but everything else -moisturizer, sunscreen, powder foundie- goes off. It doesnt leave an oily feeling afterwards, which is good. No offending smell to it as well. Luckily i'm not alergic to mineral oils or whatever so this didnt break me out or cause any irritiations for that matter. I bought it as a set from sasa.com (pic provided) so it's a very good value.
Love this product! it actually works in concealing my dark circles. I'm not really fond of jars, and will try to minimize using my fingers to collect the product from the jar. But other than this issue, it's lovee.. the texture is nice, you can just apply powder on top if you perhaps find it too creamy. I'm a C3, so rather yellow undertoned, and this just works really good. I havent tried the other colors though. definitely repurchase!
first up: the Etude House HD Beam nail polish in BR303 (picture added, its the one in grey/brown). This is a very interesting color as at times it can look grey, other times brownish or even purple-ish. I simply love it, it's very peculiar! I've also bought the regular Etude House Petite Darling PP907 (picture added, taken with flash so IRL its darker!) - dark wine red. not as opaque -you do need a few coats. very vampy! no shimmers, just beautiful =). This line is even cheaper than the HD Beam but quality wise they're on par, really! i was expecting them to chip within 2 days, but they've lasted me for a week also. i always change my nailpolishes weekly, so i've no idea how long it takes for them to start chipping off. Pros: - cheap cheap cheap! - chip resistant for nearly a week - BR303 is a good dupe for OPI You Dont Know Jacques (thats exactly why i ended up skipping on the OPI one hahah) - this particular one is opaque, so it covers decently in one stroke. but i always apply two coats just to be sure. - it doesn't get thick in the bottle (unlike the skin food's nail vita. these are tragic money wasters imo) Cons (if you can call this a con?): - tiny tiny bottle! 7ml only.. - it's more expensive in the physical stores so i have to buy online to get 'em cheaper..
This is my first and last Nars blush. Why? Because i'll never be able to finish it so there's no point in buying more (thats why i chose the 'No' option, not because its a bad product!) and it's also a matter of personal color preference, I'm simply not attracted to the other colors, and most are shimmery whereas this is nicely matte. Now on to the actual product. It's safe to say you really shouldn't swipe your brush on it, a few light taps on the pan followed by tapping the brush onto your cheeks -and blend- should suffice. On my skintone it shows up warm(?!) but thats probably because i'm very yellow toned (C3). I do look as if i come straight back from the cold *if that ever possible in a tropical country hahah* The amount of blush supplied does justify the (very steep!) price, but i'm pretty sure this baby will last me well until the zombie apocalypse arrives or something ;-p
I'm fairly satisfied with the product. It didn't exceed my expectations colorwise, it could have been a bit more pigmented so you can apply it in 1 stroke instead of 4? but yeah this means you can control the build-up. It's an okay matte sheer-ish gray.
A good white shimmery eyeshadow. The glitters are very subtle, you won't look like you've gone crazy with kiddie grade stuff on your eyes. I apply it on my inner eyelids and it shows up well with my skintone (take note that i always use an e/s base). I reckon it'll be a good highlighter too if used moderately, and you can probably also use it on your cheeks to layer it on top of a matte blusher so you don't have to buy a shimmery blush in the same color =p
This is an excellent bright pink matte eyeshadow. Even without a primer, you get very decent color pay-off. As with most nyx e/s it does get a bit powdery in the pan whenever you use your brush over it, but i'm not too fussed over this. I've always thought the colour would be as bright as NARS Desire blush, but it's actually much brighter!
