i still prefer tuberose but as for texture, pigment, and formula (doesn't cause me break out), and also.. the color! peach/salmon warm sunny bright face, really pretty, will look even more fab on a warmer skin though so yeah, a five (though, again, i like tuberose better) forgive my messy review haha

i got this in a waterproof version (blue tube), results are: thin, grouped lashes, long, thin, long, thin. i've mentioned long and thin quite a lot of times already yea? haha. oh well.. it lifts up the lashes, and the waterproof formula works well, it's not so BLACK, it's not volumizing, but it does lengthen (or at least, my lashes LOOK longer). i love the brush (seriously cool brush!), packaging, and the formula is okay (wet, yet just right). might buy again, but can't promise. give it a try if you prefer length to volume.
Blush -Becca - Lip and Cheek Creme in Tuberose and Geranium

TUBEROSE: the BEST thing about this product is the TEXTURE, and how it is richly pigmented, and it blends well with my skin, it sinks on my skin and lips resulting in a very natural blush/flush. The color is so pretty, it's pink, salmon pink, bright but not corny/hotpink fake bright, i just love the color as it is very unique at the same time compliments and lifts up my complexion. in my opinion, this color suits a lot of skin shades (i'm asian yellow undertone fair, the model wearing this color is a bit darker tanned, but still.. the color suits me and her WELL). Too bad, it's a bit pricey (but so far it's safe for my skin, non comedogenic - at least for me, and doesn't cause me any breakout, so i don't really mind paying more rather than buying cheap creme blusher which will cause me breakouts in the end), and for the amount you got (3g) it's still so richly pigmented you only need a little to get the color. next time i wanna get PETAL (it's more peachy orange and brighter!), but still.. i so love TUBEROSE color.

would you buy this product again? DEFINITELY! (but i want to try "dangerously straight" and "hello hydration" too! haha). i so love this shampoo, this works wonder, i use it together with the conditioner (haven't tried it performing alone without the conditioner though). With this shampoo my hair falls back into place, looks so much STRAIGHTER (strangely it kinda tangles though), yet so soft and sort of bouncy too (+ smelling so good). THE BEST drugstore brand shampoo ever. I tried other shampoos like Dove, L'Oreal, none of them come close this. Amazing product.
more like a splash than a perfume, yes. and i actually haven't bought this, i smelled it at the store and still thinking that maybe i should buy this (if i got the money already haha.. been shopping too much lately). and oh, CHERRY BLOSSOM is not, cherries and blossom ladies, it's different. cherry blossom is a kind of flower, so don't expect to get a hint of cherry scent or whatsoever. anyway.. this is so fresh, clean, and makes you wanna smell it all the time. not sexy or seductive or anythin, just nice, sweet, and.. again, makes you wanna smell it all the time.

heroine make long&curl mascara's partner in crime. deadly duo. and by saying deadly i mean DEADLY. kinda clumps, but .. in a good VOLUMIZING way. very black. use this as coating, final touch, extra oomph to be paired with other mascaras (or your faves).
Mascara -Kiss Me - HEROINE MAKE long and curl mascara (black)

it's cheap. it's better than anna sui long lash DX mascaras (okay this anna sui is darn expensive), it's even better than dejavu fiberwig mascara (this is just in my humblest opinion, i tried both. heck, i tried like192839182931 mascaras before). and finally this is my HG (forget all my other previous old reviews on other mascaras). combined with the volume and curl one. apply once (use a mascara base, i use mascara base from canmake, the dolly lash base one), re-apply as you wish, wait until dry, or you can just keep reapplying, do as you like, until the desirable length achieve. er.. don't blame me if this mascara doesn't work for you. for me it REALLY does WORK.
Mascara -Bourjois - Maxi Frange Mascara Noir Brilliantine 21 Black

it's just an 'okay' mascara. it does separate. doesn't clump, doesn't smell awful (maybelline's mascaras smell awful!). no length added, but it separates and holds curl a bit, so yeah.. optical illusion, your lashes will look longer and more noticeable. for those who prefer natural look, go for this. i'd rather have more 'oomph'. so .. no. japanese mascaras work best for me.
i love this. smells heavenly (just like the body butter). exfoliates well. though the salt & sugar particles sometimes feel a bit rough on my skin, but i'd just rub it smoothly over my skin. the oily film remains after rinsing (but i do enjoy it, i don't know if others will though). so for me, this body scrub gets 5 lipsticks rating ;)
smells heavenly. very moisturizing. smells heavenly. (oh i mentioned it before haha)
this works wonder like Lancome yet half the price!
Shampoo -Shiseido - Super Mild Shampoo - Moisturizing

i just bought this.. todays the first time i used it, it did make my hair softer and smoother.. i wish my supermarket also sells the conditioner :( i am sure, used with the conditioner this product will do wonders
one word. GENERIC. smell this and you can't tell what it is, just another summer fruity floral scent. more fruity than floral though.. especially in the first few hours. however, i'm loving the bottle :) so pretty.
the best blush i've ever used. gives me a very natural healthy peach-pinkish GLOW. it is well pigmented, just a few dab and swipes are enough. i think it suits lighter skin better because the color is so light. it is so smooth and it blends with my skin. very natural, like your own skin, subtle, yet it's there! i've tried MAC blushes n Lancome's before. by far, this Shu Uemura's M Peach 44 won my heart the first time i tried it, it's the best.
i agree with the other review, i also have the same color as her, the colors look really pretty but when applied.. uh.. i wish they were more pigmented! they come out sheerer than i expected, and its a bit hard to build up the colors.
