I got this in 973 of their Brown Collection. I apply two layers since their texture is quite watery compare to OPI or some other nail lacquer out there. The brush is fine and I can apply the color effortless. It is so shiny and right to the color. The longevity is ok.
I never try any mixing medium before and this is my beginning usage of it on powder eyeshadow. I always get too much of it by simply dipping those remaining on the tube. It tends to dry up toooo fast and I hardly pick up the right amount of eyeshadow before it gone dry...Will constantly trying it again on eyeshadow, powder blush, etc.
I got this for free when entering a contest organized by Inglot Asia. I just use once until the time I'm writing but I just can't wait to share my thoughts on it. I apply sparingly since I'm not doing a full makeup - under my eye, cheeks, chin and forehead. It is incredibly smooth! Smoother than Lancome La Base Pro although there are in similar texture. My face become matte and sooo smooth which is a canvas for my liquid foundation afterwards. The foundation I'm using is Nars Sheer Glow Foundation, the foundation applying process (using Sigma F80) is effortless than ever. My makeup stand for 7 hours without touch up throughout the hot and humid atmosphere in Malaysia.
Scrubs -Kiehls - Epidermal Re-Texturizing Micro-Dermabrasion

I prefer this over the Brightening Exfoliator (for daily use). In my opinion, this is milder on my dry skin, the latter is much more harsh and create dryness on my skin afterwash. In between my massage over my face by using this product, I can feel my face is instantly smoother and softer. I like how it makes my skin so soft however it didn't deliver a brightening effect (kind of deep cleansing effect that I'm looking for). Estee Lauder Idealist Dual Action Refinishing Treatment did provide that brightening feel but at the same time I couldn't feel the exfoliating particulars much compare to this.

I got this in sample too but in a much more smaller size (<5ml). Couldn't see any significant change on my darkcircles and yet enough moisturize my undereye area. Won't buy the actual size coz I believe that there are much more better product out there.
Treatments (Eye) -Kiehls - Imperiale Repairateur Moisturizing Eye Balm
lwsege 8/16/2011 12:02:00 AM
I got this in sample size with 5ml in it. I prefer this over Line Reducing Eye-Brightening Concentrate since it is more moisturizing throughout the day for my dry skin. It claims to be a repair-focused eye balm, I would say it did moisturize my undereye area but not enough because I still find that my concealer cake on it. I will go for other product.
I got this in sample size and I use it together with my Clarisonic. The sample lasts for up to 4 uses when I pour it onto my brushead and clean my face all over. It is so gentle and yet cleansing my dry skin pretty good. It is not in a rich foam and I didn't feel any dryness or tightness after I pat dry my face. Overall, this is a good cleanser for dry to sensitive skin.
I bought this in full size and got the cleanser and serum for sample. I've used it for more than 2 weeks during daytime before my makeup. I haven't try to pair it with the serum yet and only using it with my current moisturizing serum from Aesop. I would say it is moisturizing enough for my dry skin in this hot and humid environment. I don't have any facial lines after I apply my foundation/powder afterwards. No dry patches, no pop ups, no shiness, etc. Glad that I have it~Might try to whole range someday after.

I'd definitely prefer Exfotonic (which is Discon now) and or Soap&Glory Flake Away. The exfoliating beds are gentle and I can feel instant smoother skin afterwards. However, this softness is not long-lasting while the essential oil consisted stay all day long on my skin. I feel oily and smell so oily as well. So, I don't like it especially at this price.
Misc Beauty Tools -Clarisonic - Clarisonic PLUS Sonic Skin Cleansing System

I have a combi to dry skin, freckles, small to medium size pore on my nose. I have been using this day and night for a consecutive of 3 days, 2min each washing time with sensitive brush head, pairing with Cetaphil (morning) and Estee Lauder Perfect Foaming Cleanser (night). I hardly see any significant changes on my face but to be frank, I'm already addicted to wash my face with CLARISONIC! It is so systematic and make my day! I can feel how gentle it is, and it cleans my skin so well at the same time. Overall, I hate the Sensitive Skin Cleanser, it smells yuckks!!
Moisturizers -Olay - Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream
lwsege 7/27/2011 10:45:00 PM
I'm 26 years old, using this as a night cream. I've been using it for about a week, it is thick and rich in texture but can apply easily throughout the face. It moisturizes my skin and hardly see any disappearance of fine lines or sculpting effect so far. The major drawback is the strong scent probably, don't like it either. Will keep updating the result after a longer period of usage.
I got this in Moist. I will say it is gentle than Cetaphil and hardly feel any tightness or dryness after washing. My morning cleanser, no complain no rave, just normal. Wont buy again.
Treatments (Eye) -Estee Lauder - Advanced Night Repair Eye Recovery Complex

I use this for about 2-3 jars. Like the texture and believe in their anti-aging properties into my skin. I am using Aesop now and I can feel that it is more moisturize than Aesop even though it is in gel-based. Dry lines disappear after a long while of using it. But I'll still looking for better options too.
Treatments -Estee Lauder - Advanced Night Repair (Serum)

My HG product in Anti-aging and serum! I love its texture and multi-tasking usage in skincare and makeup. I use this at night and it absorbs soooo fast while at the same time moisturized my face all over the night and till the next morning. I can actually spot the difference by using it or without. I can mix it with my liquid foundation too in order to make them become more moisturizing and stay all day long over my face. Will definitely repurchase!
Great POWDER BRUSH!!!! I like it so much!!! It is so soft and apply all powder, i.e. loose powder, mineral powder, compact powder, etc perfectly and evenly. RECOMMEND!!!!! No complain at all.
