I believe the first reviewer - CarlaN, reviewed a different lipstick because there's 0 brown in Profusion!! It's a intense creamy (no shimmer) rosey pink. It's a neutral medium pink which is quite nice on my NC20 Asian skin. I just wish it can be a bit less intense. But then it's the formula of Amplified lipstick. I think I can pull it off by applying some lip blam beforehand to "lighten" the texture a bit. Anyhow, a good addition to my lipstick collection. PS. It's not drying and quite long lasting, which is another bonus.
Wow this is also a HG to me¡Kyes, like many others, I¡¦ve tried many different eye cream over the past years. Previously I¡¦m satisfied with Sisleya¡¦s eye cream until I found this eye balm. It¡¦s moisturized and emollient yet not greasy. Most of my fine lines are gone. Puffiness as well. My eyes never look this good. Price is very reasonable to me compare to other high end¡¦s like Sisley, La Prairie, etc. I won¡¦t try other brands¡¦ now. NOTE: Now it¡¦s called SkinCeuticals Eye Balm which no longer under Primacy. But I emailed SkinCeuticals they ensure it¡¦s the same product, just package and name changed.
Moisturizers -Kose - Cosme Decorte Moisture Liposome Cream

It's the BEST moisturizing cream ever. It's comparable to Sisley's Hydra Flash. Next morning skin is "full of water" so hydrated. But it's a little bit sticky once apply. Use it at night time is necessary. I even apply a thin layer on my eye area after eye cream. Fantastic! 50g HK$570
This scent is very smooth, creamy, sweet (but not overly) creme brulee scent. But it's lacking the burnt caramel scent I'd like. LOL tart doesn't last too long as well. One heart tart can last about 5 hrs. Compare to AZW, it can last for days!
Lotions/ Creams -A Zaftig Woman - Shea Butter Body Cream in Vanilla Crunch
glenda 3/5/2004 10:49:00 PM
I love this scent. It's vanilla plus toasted coconut...very warm, sweet but not too sweet!! It's so yummy...mmmm. As for the texture I don't really care for. It left a slightly greasy film behind compare to her honey hutter and shea souffle.
Lotions/ Creams -A Zaftig Woman - Strawberry Lemonade shea body cream
glenda 3/5/2004 10:47:00 PM
Yay my fave AZW scent! It's very true tart juicy strawberry blended nicely with lemonade. Just like the real drink!! As for the texture, I don't know. I just feel a little bit greasy film left behind compare to her honey butter and shea souffle. The least fave texture.
Lotions/ Creams -A Zaftig Woman - Blackberry Musk Shea Souffle
glenda 3/5/2004 10:44:00 PM
I love AZW so much....this scent is nice. Blackberry with zest of lemon plus musk. It's nice but not my fave scent. My fave scent so far is Strawberry lemonade and Vanilla Crunch. Shea souffle has cool feeling on skin and absorb well.
Lotions/ Creams -A Zaftig Woman - Shea Souffle in Yuzu
glenda 3/5/2004 10:42:00 PM
Shea souffle has cool feeling on skin and absorb well. It's the texture I love 2nd, first is Honey Butter. The scent is very true yuzu with peachy tone. A refreshing summer scent.
Skincare - Body -A Zaftig Woman - Honey Butter Souffle Body Cream in Lemon Creme
glenda 3/5/2004 10:39:00 PM
Yay!!! My fave scent in my fave body cream texture. I love Honey Butter it's so soft like frosting on cake! And it didn't leave any greasy film/feeling afterward. The scent is true tart lemon mix with cream which is a nice combo. If the cream isn't enough then the lemon will be too sour/tart. I love AZW!!
I love AZW overall and her candles and tarts are also wonderful. I have candles in Coconut cream pie and Mexican Cocoa. The coconut one is very warm, soothing, true to the scent and yet not overly sweet. I haven't burn the cocoa yet but in the cold throw it smell delish. It's dark chocolate with a hint of cinnamon (thank God, I don't really care of cinnamon) and vanilla....I smell chocolatey coffee as well hehe. A must try!!
It's a crystal clear liquidy gel which needs to wipe on face using cotton pad soaked with it. It gently remove any dead skin cell. As all AQ product is gently yet very effective. HK$570 for 200ml. Only 1 pump each time is enough so it can last for a long time.
Toners -Kose - Cosme Decorte AQ Circulation (softener + toner)
glenda 1/2/2004 9:47:00 AM
I think it's the most expensive toner I've used. It's HK$860 for 200ml. It's a softener plus toner 2 in 1. Yes it can soften, moisturize deeply, and tone skin. Since it's expensive, I usually don't use cotton pad. I just pour some on my palm and pat on face. After a few weeks, I can see my face less drying and more even tone. More transparent. Good.
It's charcoal black color peeling mask. Although its name is whitening mask but it's more like a cleansing mask (peel off) than a whitening mask. Even the SA said so too. I found it's quite effective to remove some of my blackhead and dirt w/o hurting my face when peeling it off. And it's cheap :)
Cleansers -Kose - Cosme Decorte White Science Moisture Wash
glenda 1/2/2004 9:37:00 AM
Well it's not bad. It's quite moisturized but not foaming well. I think moisture type cleansing product don't really foams. Maybe it's moisturize, so I didn't feel the squirky clean feeling. FYI, HK$225 for 120g. Besides, I'm using AQ washing foam now which I found it's my HQ.
Cleansers -Kose - Cosme Decorte White Science Refreshing Wash
