it has been 2 weeks since I started using this product and I am happy with the results. It really makes your skin look fresh and feels silky when applying makeup/powder or liquid foundation has never been so glorious! I always look forward to using it before I start my beauty regimen. It has helped reduce the uneven texture and discolorations on my face, the rough parts where I have whiteheads and also helped the acne dark spots get lighter. Since using it I have not had any adult acne along my jaw and on my chin. I have to admit tho that I am also using EL ANR concentrate and exfoliate regularly now.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - MaMa Lotion [DISCONTINUED]

I have been using this lotion for over a year now and it really minimizes my pimples and blackheads. It leaves a sting at first---which i like because i like to think it is working. it is not drying as well. the only thing i don't like it that it doesn't make my face glow or bright. maybe I have to use another product for that. The SR once said it is really ideal for Asian skin since it contains Mandelic/Malic Acids which are supposedly lighter than other AHA's that's why I bought it.
Makeup Brushes -MAC - 191 Square Foundation Paint Brush

i bought this brush 2 months ago for my shu uemura face architect cream foundation. This brush gives you an even coverage but while working at it, initially it leaves streaks on your skin but the technique apparently is blending blending blending. the other good point about this is that it easily reaches the corners in the nose area. i have not experienced any shedding after several washings (even with gentle shampoo before I got my brush cleanser). i just wish they would start to put covers on brushes for hygiene purposes, esp face brushes.
I have had this product for the longest time.....5-6years and it still looks good on me. it doesn't smudge at all. i work the graveyard shift and no smudges at all. the only problem i have is that it becomes clumpy in the brush and when i start to put it on, some granules would fall in my eye. I spoke to the SR about it and she suggested to put it in the ref since I had it sooo long. I might try the Mac next time but for now, i love this.
Blush -Bobbi Brown - Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in Pale Pink

okay, after reading the reviews from MUA, i finally went to the store and bought one. the color in the pot is much darker then its name(pale pink) but once you put it on lightly, it looks very very natural---like a blush when your crush talks to you or something.....? and when you put it on your lips, it just looks like young girls' lips--naturally pinkish. When I am in a hurry, I just put it on and go. no need for powder even. the only thing i don't like about it is the packaging. but like the other reviewers said, you can always use your blush brush.
