I use this to line my eyes with pencil liner (Make Up Forever Aqua Eyes) I take the brush and swipe it across the pencil to pick up some pigment and I then apply a line on my lashline. This stiffness and density of the brush really allows me to have great control over the pigmentation, length, and width of my eyeliner! I've been using this brush for nearly half a year now and it is still in great condition!

Very watery, cooling moisturizer. I would recommend this for oily skin folks out there. It is extremely lightweight, hence healthier for your pores. It didn't do much for my skin but didn't do much bad either.

My first experience with this product was terrible. My skin broke out, my skin was irritably red and it also felt greasy. I put off the moisturizer for about a week before giving it another try. This time, I decided to only use a pea size amount for my whole face. Wow.... my face remained moisturized for the whole day and most of the redness in my face disappeared! I guess I just used too much in the beginning! Great product for dry/combo skin! And remember to only use a small amount!
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Coconut Body Butter

The packaging for body butters is very unhygienic. That is my first dislike. Secondly, I expected body butters to be thick and creamy, leaving my skin to be softer than ever. Perhaps my expectations were too high because this is not what happened. True, the consistency of the body butter is very thick and the smell is tolerable but it left a sticky feeling on my skin all throughout the day. I thought this stickyness would disappear after a few hours but it lasted ALL day. My skin did not soak up the butter much at all, hence my skin was in the same condition as before. I do not recommend this. Instead, try using a more lightweight lotion since it is better for your pores.
Very good blush. Pigmentation is phenomenal. It's a great classic pink. Unfortunately, I am not a fan of shimmer on my face. Most NARS blushes have at least a speck of shimmer and I do not really appreciate that. In swatches, the shimmer shows up but on the face, the shimmer is not too noticeable. Although it is a good blush, I think there are cheaper ones out there with the same color and quality.
