Brows -Anastasia Of Beverly Hills - tinted Brow gel in Espresso
jackjack828 12/22/2010 4:27:00 AM
I love this brow gel. I use espresso, which is a nice color and it goes on easily. I like how it fills and shapes my brows making them look fuller and thicker yet natural. However, a little goes a long way. Use sparingly or it will look too dark and unnatural. Though its a gel, it doesn't clumpy or get sticky. INGREDIENTS: NET WT. 10 g / 0.35 Oz.

Moisturizers -Shiseido - Pureness Moisturizing Gel (Oil-Free)

I used to use this product back in 2005, I forgot all about it and thanks to a generous muaer, I'm able to get a hold of this again. This thing is great. Its lightweight, fragrance free and the best of all, its oil free. I have severe oily skin on my t-zone, and tried just about everything to deal with it. I put a regular moisturizer all over my face except my t-zone and put this on there. Now, i don't have to blot 4-5x a day. With this, i can easily wear foundation and not feel greasy. I wish i can find ingredients somewhere online, the only thing I know bout this is that the "Complexe Phythogenique is 5.5%
WTF was Sephora thinking releasing something like this? wet n' wild eyeshadows are better than this crap. Pssshhh, i ended up returning it. BUY AT YOUR OWN RISK. There's a reason why the rating is so low.

Oh man, i wish this worked on me. I love how this made my face super soft, but after using it, the next day, i have HUGE zits everywhere on my face. Bought this for $1, so I guess its not much of a loss.
Lip Treatments -Clarins - Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm
jackjack828 11/9/2010 1:22:00 AM
wow wow wow! Love this. I found this at my local TJMaxx and soooo glad i bought it. This made my lips incredibly soft and chapless. The smell is very ordinary, and the same thing with the taste (think DS lipgloss), but regardless, i love how it does good for my lips. I'll be going back to TJMaxx and purchase more of this. 0.46oz or 15mL
I like this a lot. I have combo skin (dry/oily) with a bit of spider veins around my nose. This stuff is sheer but buildable. I use my bb fdnt brush and sephora plat airbrush to blend it and the result is amazing. You might need to put a primer pror to use because it doesn't really last that long. I still find myself blotting after couple of hours. Wish it comes in a pump. I'll keep using this during winter but I'll switch to mac pro longwear during summer time. I'm nc40/42 and I use syracuse.
The only blush from nars that looks good on me. I like natural makeup and when I use this, it gives me just that. It makes you look glowy without being OTT. It shows up really nice and not too shimmery like orgasm. A little goes a long way, so I think the price is pretty reasonable. I can't go without this. I'm nc42 black-asian, and this is a WINNER!!!!!!!
Can I get an AMEN?! This product ROCKS my socks. Its gentle yet effective. I alternate between this and the dermalogica thermafoliant depending on how my skin feels, but this works just as great when i want light exfoliation. It has that signature Murad scent, which isnt strong to me. Little tiny beads that works its magic to exfoliate your face. After using this for a month (twice a week), my skin looks and feels much better. I hardly get acne, or eczema breakouts. You only need a dime size to cover your entire face. A little bit more for the neck. I use it when I'm in the shower. I'll be forever using this along with the other Murad Age reform line. It's GREAT
Now called Night Reform Glycolic Treatment. Please make sure that the product you are using is not expired (check the bottom of the bottle with 4-letter/number combo, the if it says example jk7o, it means its made on 2007, and its expired since this only has 3yr shelf life, basically , if your bottle says Night reform then its expired, coz they stopped making them in 2008 according to the cs @ Murad) Anyway, back to my review, I tried the night reform (old) and it broke me out, until I called the cs at murad and was informed that this product is expired and look for the one with Glycolic word on it. So I sent it back to Sephora, and got the new one, been using it for a month or so and my face is AWESOME. Its smooth, even-toned, glowy, soft, etc... Its excellent with the perfecting night cream and the perfecting serum. It will sting a bit, but it will subside after a minute or two. I'm not turning back. I'll be loyal to these 3 products as long as it's working for me.
I love this. I love Murad. It saved my face. I have THE weirdest skin. Though its even-toned, it's dry yet oily with acne-prone/eczema. I've tried A LOT of moisturizers (dermalogica, korres, bliss, philosophy) and THIS murad is the only thing that worked. I use this with Night Reform glycolic treatment and the perfecting serum, and the result is pure magic. My face has never been this smooth before. I no longer have to worry about flaky skin, or blotting. When i wake up in the morning, my skin is glowing and soft. This soaks right in even after I put on the serum (which by the way you HAVE to get it). It's a lot of money, but its worth every penny. I'm completely happy with my skin right now. THANK YOU MURAD.
Wow! This is THE best serum I've ever splurged on. Its pricey, but worth every penny. I use on top of Night reform glycolic treatment, and perfecting night serum, and the result is SILK!!!!! Let me tell you a bit about me. I'm dry/oily skin with eczema and mild acne prone. I have tried just about everything in the drugstore and none worked for me. Finally, I was on sephora and asked the lady to give me a bunch of samples to find the right regimen, by the end of the month I decided to go with this. Its a lot of money, but little goes a long way with this stuff. I use a pump to cover my entire face and neck. I've been using this for almost two months and seriously, not even half an inch down the bottle. Its fragrance free which is a HUGE plus for me. I also use this as a primer after I put on my spf moisturizer, and the finish is flawless! So after doing my regimen at night I wake up with a GLOWY, smooth, flake free face. I never thought in a million years I would have this kind of skin. I'm in love, and you dam right I'll buy this again.
I swear by MAC Sculpt since I have dry/oily skin thought I'd give this a try since I'm always on a lookout for a new foundation. Well, this is my new HG. It has great coverage. Using only one pulp to cover my entire face, I'd say this is cheap. It doesn't break me out since its not based on mineral oil. Its basically one of those foundation that makes you look great all day. I don't even need to blot. Anyway, this is hands down one of the best foundation I've ever used.
Makeup Brushes -Too Faced - Retractable Kabuki Brush
jackjack828 9/22/2010 12:26:00 AM
Omg, are you sure this is animal free cruelty? Its sooooo soft! I love this kabuki more than any other brush I have. Its dense, soft, and last forever. I've washed mine about 5x already and it looks still brand new. Its pink, which doesn't bother me. I get compliments from people asking where I got it and it looks really cute. I like my ecotools too, but I notice that I grab this more than the ecotools. I'll buy this again. Its high quality. HG!!!!!!!!!
Mascara -NARS - Larger Than Life Lengthening Mascara
jackjack828 9/22/2010 12:15:00 AM
Ok, first few applications I loved it, but after using it the third time, it started flaking,dry, and clumpy! I mean for $25 mascara I would sure hope that it last longer than 3 applications. I'm returning this to sephora. I'd go back to my bare escentuals flawless definition. Its much better!!!!!!!!!
Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand - Face Secrets Facial Cleansing Brush
jackjack828 7/13/2010 9:28:00 PM
Uhh, this brush is kinda rough even when I'm not pressing down hard. It does exfoliate but it left my skin kind of red. I prefer pretika or clairsonic than this. It is cheap, but it's not worth it
