Moisturizers -Shiseido - Benefiance Revitalizing Emulsion

I love this product. Saved my skin many times. I tend to go tanning in the summer months and couple times during the fall/winter season to keep my color. My face always becomes very dry and patchy during these sessions and this product always fixes it as soon as it comes in contact with my skin. It's very expensive for my budget but my mom buys it for me. She's a loyal shiseido fan. I tend to not use it during the day at ALL because i'm afraid it may be too greasy for my skin unless i've been tanning. Smells amazing. The packaging is great. I'm used to this type of packaging on face lotions and softeners since thats how many asian companies seem to package them. If you have the money totally go for it!

It's expensive for a college student's budget but my mother is very big on skin care and buys me these products. The softener is amazing. smells great. I just pour some onto my hand, pat my hands together and pat all over my face. My skins absorbs it immediately and there has not been any negative reactions from my skin. But my mom has always made me use the lines from shiseido so my skin is pretty loyal to the brand itself. During the summer I feel like I don't need any moisturizer in addition to this product so sometime I skip it. When I do go into the tanning bed my face becomes very dry and patchy for makeup so I apply this along with the moisturizer and my skin is IMMEDIATELY hydrated. I've used 2 bottles of this so far. It lasts a long time. If you have the money totally go for it with the emulsion partner. It's amazing during the fall/winter time. I tend to lean towards the pureness line in the summer.
Beautiful peachy-coral shade. The shade is a bit sheer so you need to apply a couple layers to achieve the shade in the tube. Nice shine. Looks glossy. Has a bit of moisture in it. I always have some type of balm underneath and give my lip a scrub. For reference shade NC25-30 But it looks beautiful and gives my skin a glow! I love it.

I quite adore this lotion. i hate greasy lotion on my feet and therefore they're neglected. I bought this on sale at khols and I work on my feet for 8-10 hours and my feet stink after a while especially if i wear flats without socks (nasty i know) but my boyfriend said i should give it a try and he massages my feet with it and it feel so great and tingly and cool and lovely! I also have the feet spray which work wonders on my stinky feet!

Love these wipes!! I tried the ponds which were good. I also tried the wipes from olay where you run it in water and that dried me out. I tried MAC's wipes and it killed my eyes and made them puffy and red. And I tried baby wipes which i felt left a wierd residue on my face. These i don't feel like i have to wash my face again but i still do anyways. I started to use these because When i'm washing my makeup off at night i feel like not everything is off. When i put some toner on a cotton pad and run it across my face theres still make up so i'm worried that i may have makeup left and break me out. So I started using the wipes. SUPER CHEAP. Nice and thick. doesnt burn my eyeballs off. I love it. And i'll buy it over and over again. I don't have that plastic case I just bought the refills and hopefully it won't dry out.
I love this! I strayed to Burts bees for a while and went back remembering how much I loved it in highschool. Burts bees became a little bit chalky and wierd for some reason so i went back to this and I love it all over again. Slight tingle which is great and the vanilla smell (YUM)
So pinky So pretty everything I wanted in a pink lipstick. Love wearing it when my hair is freshly done and all voluminous and sexy. Like a porn star pink but wearable and not get looked at oddly. Little dry but I always wear gloss over my lip sticks or balm under them either or depends if I want to slightly change the color of the lip stick. NC25-30 skin tone. Black hair. Dark eyes. Looks amazing!! And it even looks good on my mom! Who is paler then pale and she also has black hair and it looks gorgeous on her!
I love this! Got it for B2M and also got the love nectar lipgloss with it since the girl recommended and i've been going to the same counter for a long time and trust them. I love it. i can wear it with just eyeliner and mascara and i'll look nice and polished. I also have blankety and Angel and this is a good between. Blankety is for really nude for smokey eyes and Angel is pinky pink. Love this. No problems with it i'd buy it over and over again.
UGH WTH. I got a sample to try the tech out for a couple day and EVERYTHING. It was find till I actually BOUGHT IT. It made my skin flake like hell. Idk why... I wish I could have loved it but my skin seems to reject it. Oh well back to SFF. It couldnt have been any other products because I didn't change anything. Oh well.
Hm.... I don't know about this. Lately my skin's been having some dry issues and i figured this would be great for it. i've been using Studio fix fluid btw. Well, I thought this would be moisturizing but it wasnt. I applied with a foundation brush and buff with 109. So, I got a sample and I tried it today butI HAD to wash it off. It felt like my skin was sticky..... I didn't want to touch my face AT ALL. but when i did it felt soft so I don't know why my face felt sticky. But my TZONE... oh my... it's not very oily just SLIGHTLY. but it was very shiny. And I wear glasses in class and it left the marks on my nose and the foundation just rubbed off. And it emphisized the bumps I have on the area by the nose. Ugh.... I don't know about this... I guess I will give it another try but so far, not so good. I'm not sure if i should try the studio tech or maybe studio stick? after more research I guess i will decide.
Eye Shadow -MAC - Magnetic Fields Eye Shadow from Neo Sci-Fi Collection

I bought this last year when i got a make over at MAC. Even my boyfriend loved the color. I use it for a smokey look. I reallly love this color but i only put eyeshadow like once or twice a week and i always end up reaching for this.
I LOVE THIS. I was looking for a nude lipstick and I tried this and it is a pinky side but it can go both ways. I usually just wear eyeliner but it doesnt matter if i wear a lot of makeup or none at all. Goes on sooo smooth and I love it. It does dry my lips out a little bit but I make sure to put on balm before or gloss afterwards I'm NC 25. Asian.
Lip Treatments -MAC - Hello Kitty -- Pink Fish Tinted Lip Conditioner
ekim89 2/22/2009 10:43:00 PM
I went to MAC to see what the hype was about for Hello Kitty. Didn't like anything. And didn't really need anything either. Plus didn't really want to spend any money but I felt like i deserve something. So I saw the tinted moisturizers and Popstar was way too bright for me. So when I saw this, it also looked a little bit too bright also but when I tried it on my lips It was SO PRETTY. I bought it. And i don't regret it at all. I bought two but gave one to my friend as a present and now I just might have to go back and get another one but i'm pretty sure it's sold out since I got one of the few remaining. The pot is a little bit annoying but I don't really mind since i'll be the only one using it and there won't be people dipping their fingers in it.
Mascara -Maybelline - Full 'N Soft Mascara Waterproof

Very good Mascara. I was a little bit iffy about it because its supposed to make your lashes look natural and my lashes and asian and short so i was hesitant to buy this. It was BOGO free at CVS so i bought it along with colossol. I love it. it also holds my curl ALL day. Today i put it on around7AM and i took it off at midnight from going to school and working late and it was still curled. and no smudges or clumps. I adore this! Gives good volume and i like to touch my lashes now and then and i'm so glad its soft. I've tried so many mascaras and i will always use this for everyday look with a little oomph.
Essie nailpolishes just tend to PEEL on me. UGH. i've tried every color on the planet and it always does it. But my nails tend to reject fake nails also unless it's acrylic or the UV gels. Beautiful colors but i will only put it on my nails if i have the bottle with me at all times because i have to pick at it if it chips and peels and then i have to peel it off of all my fingers because i feel dumb. its like a OCD nailpolish thing. and i mean they peel like the same day i polish. it really sucks. i just leave my nails bare now.
