This is the best eye cream that i had used so far. new version from the old cream in pot. i am VERY prone to milia seeds and lots of brand had actually result in milia seeds for me. But this cream prove me wrong. is a light texture cream, moisturing and yet not too rich. contain ginseng extract and it does brighten and lighten my dark circles a little. comes in a pump packaging for hygiene purpose. i always keep in a fridge to have a cold application to reduce swelling of eyes too. it works! price wise was alright for 15g. but i do not like the packaging as i can't use the last bit below the container. quite a waste.other than that, everything was just great and this is my 2nd bottle.
Makeup Brushes -mark - Mini Brush Kit- Go With the Pros
kristle 7/31/2007 3:28:00 AM
When i first got hold of this kit. wow! such a small compact size and yet the powder brush are quite full in my opinion. all the brushes are of super great quality that is ultra soft and does not shed at all , except for the powder brush. It's scatchy and it really does scratch even on my pans. leaving all my powder pans with scratches marks. Maybe i am the unlucky one to get a flaw in this set but i am using it to pick up others powder that is difficult to pick up the color by normal brush. Nevertheless, is a very value mini kit to get. Recommended to all.
Finally! i found MY powder blush exactly to what i wish. Though it look a little peachy in its pan, the result is very smooth and its give a soft pink color that is not too shocking, patchy or too light. It is high pigmented so just a gentle swipe on your cheek will be fine. Had tried so many blushes like stila, nars desire, mac msfs and this rose petal just appear to be the best for me. btw, i am a cool tone MAC N15-20. It will be even prefect if the pan can get a little longer in width so that my brushes will be able to pick up the color totally.
Smell: does detest me a little.It doesn't had the refreshing and sweet rosewater smell. Guess this is from fresh crushed petals so it does smell a little funny. Application: when use normal, it sting but bearable. so i store it in my fridge and it just feel so cooling and relax. IMO, it works better when it is utimately cold. the stinging effect just subsides and it's back to a little stinging after the cold temperature wear off. just in time to wash it off. After effect: refreshing, super hydrate and smooth. pore do look smaller and this is the best instant and lasting hydrating mask that i had use so far. A total of 2-3 days? Conclusion: Price is rather steep and the container is just too heavy. Though it sting a little for me towards my ending session but it does not cause any rashes or marks on me. The price factor just prevent me from repurchase.
It just doesn't work for me. I had those inner-double eyelids and the curler just clamp into my lids. Ouch! And it doesn't curl for me at all.
Treatments -Estee Lauder - Advanced Night Repair (Serum)

I had a 7ml trial bottle. The texture was not very watery, and i apply by pouring a small amount in my palms, rub my palms slightly and pat massage my face. The next day when i woke up, my skin was amazing soft, pore look smaller, white heads lesser a lot, pimples flatten. It seems to be a miracle treatment for me. I am only in my early 20s and therefore use it twice a week as a moisturer. Result had been very good so far. But the price did turn me off a little.
My first time using a liquid eyeliner. The tip is great though i find it a little too hard. More like a spongy pointed brush tip. The liquid is kind of watery but it dries up pretty fast. It does not melt or stain my upper lids as i had inner double eyelids. Does not stains my undereyes too! But the end result doesn't seem to be pure black. It look kind of reflective black to me (greyish black). But still, is a very good liquid eyeliner for a beginner like me.
All the while i had been using pencil/crayon type eyeliner and all brands smudge my undereyes badly. Therefore i switch to this gel eyeliner in pure black without glitter. The texture doesn't seem creamy or gel to me. When picked up with its liner brush, it seem a bit dry and had a little solid clumps onto the tip. It does not glides on smoothly as mentioned above, the texture is a little dry and therefore, i got to apply a couple of times. but so far, this is the current one i am using till i found a better one next time.
Mascara -Shiseido - Majolica Majorca Lash Expander

This is my favorite and the only mascara i am using now. I had short and inner double eyelid and therefore, other mascaras will smudge my eyes badly and weight my lashes down immediately. The comb like applicator helps to separate my lashes well and does not clump at all. The liquid though is light and watery, it dries up pretty fast and the most important, staying power and ability to hold up my short curled lashes very well. No other big brands mascara is able to hold up the curl except this. Is my staple!! The packaging design is quite standard. In short, value pricing and excellent performance. Two thumbs up.
Heard a lot of good reviews of this Desire blush and i had gotten it in hongkong while holidaying there. The color look pretty bright pink in its pan. However, it does not reflect the pink on my skin. It appears darker, more redish on my cheeks. color was more peachy then pink. However, the pigments is very lasting and the blush last the whole day. Will not re purchase again though the packaging is compact and elegant.
Eye Makeup Remover -Clinique - Take The Day Off Eye Makeup Remover

My favorite and best have! It's totally dissolve and remove my mascaras. Even waterproof mascaras does the trick too. Is a oil and water remover and you got to shake well to mix the 2 mixtures first. Next, pour some onto a cotton pad and press against your eyelid for a few seconds and wipe in a downward direction. Done! everything is remove. But it does have a little oily feeling on your eye areas after using it. But I always double cleanse with a facial wash.
I love this so much. it works wonder! even better than SK2 masks. After using, my face is brighten and whiten instantly and it lasts for 2 days. my skin feel moisturize and supply. however, the price does affect my purchasing power. otherwise, this is a indeed good whitening mask that i would recommend to all.
Overclaim on their benefits. it does not work for me at all. after washing off, no moisturing or radiant effect. furthermore, with the expiry date, i will not repurchase again.
Had tried this product and i would classified it under deep cleansing mask. after washing off, my skin is ultra-clean. most of my black and white heads are gone. it's just seem wonder for me. i love this so much. definetely will re purchase again.
It does not clean well at all. I tried cleaning 3 times and yet my make up is still around. it create a blurred film in my vision too and it just doesn't work well to lift up my make up.
