I expect complex and sophisticated scents from Jo Malone, the simple and timeless packaging for me is the true stand out point for this brand, though i love their home candles, only a few of their scents would make me want to purchase the bottles at full price. Blackberry and Bay, pretty much smells EXACTLY like YSL babydoll, which I loved as a teen, I just never saw Jo Malone as a brand that caters to the younger, teenager crowd, maybe this will serve as a "mix" with their other scents, but as a stand alone, there are much better choices out there.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Lash Perfection Volumizing Mascara
makimotoki430 9/17/2012 2:55:00 PM
I've tried all the highest rated/most reviewed mascara in Product Reviews, this one blows all the other ones out of the water. I have thin stick straight asian lashes, this one is awesome, staying power, separation, length, volume, holding a curl, this is the closest to fake lashes I can get from a mascara (with the shiseido perfect mascara base of course!) all around PERFECTION! I've repurchased this more than a dozen times. It's only $6 bucks at target. What's not to love? Other ones I've liked so far, but not as much as this one: Maybelline full n soft, YSL Faux Cils, Dior Show, Shiseido Perfect Mascara, L'oreal Voluminous Full Definition, Jordana(great for length but holds no curl)
Gardenia, Gardenia, Gardenia, great lasting power, classic and chic bottle, This along with Marc Jacobs Daisy adds two timeless scents to the often overwhelming fragrance sea of choices.
I have never used up a full size bottle of perfume before this one, I'm on a 3rd bottle and still very much in love with how it smells on me, it has become my "signature" scent. It lasts quite long on me and the scents get better throughout the day. I would describe it as a strong floral that gradually dries down to a sensually soft musk. It's truly unique as there is nothing like it on the market, men also love this scent as well, I will keep purchasing this as long as i can find it.
Eye Makeup Remover -Clinique - Take The Day Off Eye Makeup Remover
makimotoki430 5/18/2007 5:26:00 AM
Clinique take the day off does exactly what it says and more, it is gentle, effective, and doesn't dry out my eye lids. i've tried lancome bi-facils, biotherm, chanel, shiseido, and nothing compares to this one. clinique pricing is on the cheap side too. would recommend to anyone!
Who knows how many of these i have used up in the past, I have tried all kinds of lipbalms out there, High end and drugstore, i have to say this is by far my favorite of all. it's dirt cheap and moisturize and protects my lips like nothing else, just wish it comes with SPF for daytime. this should be a staple in everyone's makeup bag.
Even though i won't buy this again, but i'm sure this would be the perfect suit for someone with more pigmented lips. This has a nice texture and a nice packaging with the brush on the other end and all. The color is just a bit too dark for me.
Lip Gloss -Sally Hansen - Diamond Lip Treatment "Brilliant Blush"
makimotoki430 12/9/2005 4:16:00 AM
i love this d/s lip gloss, cheap, great smell, great color, super shiny, althought the glitteres a just a bit gritty, but still, this is a winner!
This is my first glossimer and i absolutely love everything about it, the color looks very dark and red in the tube, but once i apply it on my lip, it shows up much lighter. This has just become the PERFECT pink in my makeup bag. i can't wait to try more chanel glossimers.
Palettes -Tony & Tina - Everything Nice Eye Palette

This eyeshadow palette is very very pretty, it's really colorful and very pigmented, the color is bright yet very wearable. love the packaging also, very chic and cute.
Palettes -Stila - Studio Favorite - All Over Shimmer palette
makimotoki430 10/20/2005 3:05:00 AM
I got this in as an extra from a super sweet swapper, i love the packaging, it's very slim and cute. The colors looks quite flattering in the compact,i find that i mostly use them as eyeshadows because the size of the pan is not big enough for the blush brush to swip just one color. i love all the colors though, very pretty as a wash or highlighter. I definitely see myself using this all the time.
I like the tint this lip balm gives my lip, the smell isn't bad but i can't reallie compare since i don't drink Dr.Pepper at all. i reallie wish they can make this color in strawberry flavored.
I have both the shu and this, however, i find myself reaching for this more. i find this fits my right eye more and the shu fits the left. This curler is a must have for every asian girl i should say, it curls and holds, i use this and the mascara base, then apply mascara. I love this~i would purchase the pad over and over again for sure=]
I can't believe i haven't write a review for this FAB moisturizer with SPF15. This is so far the ONLY moisturizer i haven't had a problem with, i have combo-oily, sensitive, breakout-prone skin. I bought this from the recommendation from the acne.org website. This combined with BP gel has kept my skin COMPLETELY clear for almost a year. I couldn't be happier about my skin now. This moisturizer leaves my skin so soft and i don't have to worry about putting on other suncreen either. It goes on very smooth under makeup too. I <3 <3 this!!!
Blush -mark - Good Glowing Powder Blush -After Glow
makimotoki430 6/30/2005 4:33:00 AM
I can't believe i haven't reviewed this AMAZING blush, very similar to NARS O* imo, but i think it's somehow better in pigmentation, the colors shows up well on my NC25-30ish asain skin, no break outs whatsoever, it stays and stays, with subtle golden shimmer. this is my everyday and ALL TIME FAVE!!~great job MARK!
