At first I didn't feel so rave about this mascara cause I find the brush is really awkward but then I gave try.I chose the eyefly first but the clerk put me this mascara first to see how wonderful this mascara will work to my eyelashes.Hmmm.I was so rave then.cause it made my lashes went dramatic.but then I felt its too much.I need an everyday use mascara that volumnize my lashes rather than separate it.BUT I then purchased this one due to the effect I got cs eyefly didn't impress much,only natural finish look which I can afford cheaper than that eyefly.The clerk said mine is the waterproof version but then I realized from the box that it is the original version.so confusing I can't distinguish mine.After first time using,hmmm,I feel like damn,its a holy grail mascara.hell fantastic.so dramatic yet nice.I don't even feel doubt when I wear it for daily using.I know its pricey and in my country it costs approx. 38 dollars,so that's why I'm so regret that I didn't purchase it when I went to sephora in US and duty free in Qatar cs there is the combo version in which you can get two tubes in fraction price. The bristle is nice but I can't do my zigzag technique to volumnize and lengthen my lashes with it BUT hey,it is perfectly nice to separate and volumnize too without that trick,so I think for beginner,it's easy to apply.My lashes go falsies and it makes my eyes look so POP.
Ladies,girls! Purchase this blusher,now if you haven't yet have it.This is the best blusher I ever had.My bf bought me the ultra rose,it's very bubblegum neon pink,but when I apply it,it looks natural rosy pink on my cheeks.one more,it's longlast.this powder is perfect!
Lip Gloss -Chanel - Rouge Allure Extrait De Gloss Imaginaire 56
melysaretsahana 11/1/2012 5:11:00 AM
I'm a lipgloss junkie since in middle school.I have tried several lip glosses from korean brand such etude house to branded stuff - dior and now chanel. In addition,I love coral pink color. And this chanel lipgloss just so awesome. Really worth the price. The packaging is sleek and has black opal color.very luxury. Compared to dior,the price is almost similar.but I prefer Chanel better. So in love with this extrait de gloss. I am a person tht when applying make up and lipgloss usually wear off easily.this chanel is okay for my lips even thought not stay for long hours.but the staying power is better than dior addict. The color is really pigmented and I found this imaginaire has the SUPER PERFECT CORAL PINK! What more need I say?
I want to review my Kose Fasio Data Bank Make Up - Curl Lock and Long Mascara in Black. God. This is my HG everyday mascara. I found it already. After using several brands, I am now making a confession,that this mascara is super.why? - It's cheap!!!! - No smudge - No clumsy at all!!! - Easy to remove - Very nice to separate lashes - No blob on tip - Natural black Why I bought this mascara? It's sub brand from Kose. Kose is well known as a premium japanese cosmetic line for hi-end user and this kose fasio comes with shockingly affordable price.then the brush is big and not awkward.usually japanese brand mascara has tiny brush that's awkward for me. Now lemme mention the weakness : - The black color is not intense (it won't create a dramatic finish) - The main function from this mascara is curling up lashes.but it doesn't work well for that.so you may strokes harder and wait for 3 seconds for the trick. BUT, Because I have natural curly lashes so i am not doubt for the function to curl up :) and I am looking for a natural finish look that won't smudge easily ... This mascara is the answer. It's probably won't create a dramatic intense smooky eyes look but it can create a natural japanese dolly look.so love it. I had kose elsia and the quality is not as good as this kose fasio.
Lipstick -Givenchy - Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick Irresistible Color
melysaretsahana 10/5/2012 1:19:00 AM
I am looking for pink shade lipstick and considering between Clinique,Elizabeth Arden and Givenchy, but because of the prices in my country are same (between Elizabeth arden and Givenchy), so I decided to purchase Givenchy. It is no wonder, because who can resist Givenchy lipstick? My mommy loves it either.She said Givenchy won for the lipstick shades I tried some colors from pink to beige, until I got my seductive rose shade (no.22) It’s muted pink comes with a bit purple hint and fresh pink but looks natural on lips At first I’m interested with both vamp pink and fantasy pink but Pink Whisper is too bubble gum and looks pale on my face,but it’s nice for eccentric look.reminds me of rihanna Fantasy pink is too bright.I’m considering for everyday use lipstick so I ban it from my list while it’s hot and reminds me of mac nicky minaj I also tried the vamp pink.its’s close to seductive rose, I thought, but seductive rose looks fresher The beige champagne also nice.slightly pink and coral but natural.it’s close to my skin color(for fair-medium skin tone) I also love another color.a bit coral but I forget the number But I admit that Givenchy has many good shades Well here’s the pros and cons , Pros : -Creamy and well yes moisturizing.I was surprised because when I touched my lips I felt my lips became so smooth after an hour using -Lightweight formula…gosh it’s nice -Looks natural on lips. wearable for everyday using -Creamy glossy, reminds me of Christian Dior Crème de Gloss. You might swear you feel like wearing both lipstick and lipgloss -It’s glossy but non sticky -Nice packaging.fancy yet luxury and unique.sleek design.reminds me of wristlet purse comes in black onyx color -Lightweight to carry Cons : -It’s Givenchy.a branded make up line.so, no wonder if it is expensive,but fortunately worth to buy -Mostly … every Givenchy color is creating an old impression but thanks God, mostly looks natural on my lips. Many branded stuffs do the same either.Christian Dior does it, such as its Crème de Gloss (for lipgloss) -It has unique design but I hate the silver coating inside.looks dirt cheap while the pattern of the silver coating is nice …reminds me of Clinique and Elizabeth Arden ceramide ultra lipstick.but the silver coating is bad Overall is nice.very good About the intensity is nice. It’s about sheer to medium coverage Is it longlast? Eum…I’m sorry but I might say not really,while many reviewers outta there said it’s longlast.but this is fair and usual.mostly lipstick does it too, like my lancome absolue rouge solid color lipstick. Would I buy this product again? Well yes…it’s a nice lipstick that worth to buy.good to steal and splurge
This vitalumiere is yes more suitable for dry skin, but my skin is combination and this foundie saves my dry patches on some areas.when I turn to twenty something, my skin has some dryness area.looks chalky and flaky when use wrong foundation that's too matte.well,my skin is seriously acne prone after using korean bb cream that broke me out.the medium coverage of this foundie can blur the imperfections and any discoloration on my horrible face.skintone looks more even.I know it has no full coverage.but the medium coverage from this foundie is really nice.even if u need a light coverage,this foundie can create a natural finish.BUT sure u better apply makeup base first if u have many blemishes.I prefer use maybelline bb cream cs it is lighter than korean bb cream and has the same functions,to conceal all blemishes. Why I love this foundation : - No chalky at all - Very lightweight formula - The coverage is really nice - Radiance and moisturizing - Blendable and Buildable - The color for no.20 clair is trully match for my skin.such a great invention.this is the first time I already found out my well match color of foundie.for warm/yellow undertone,the clair is HOT.well the clerkship offered me tried two colors,clair for brighter and beige for natural look because I have fair-medium skintone.but when I tested it on my skin.the clair one was VERY MATCH to my skin.the beige one appeared nothing on my skin - The pump and packaging look nice and classy.very sleek Anyway, I am not agree with people said this foundie had way overpower smell or bad smell.I even can not smell any scent on this foundie.it smells nothing but what every foundie has its scent. I know itis very hefty,but it's chanel and it's not too expensive compared to sisley,cle de peau and whatever any other hi-end cosmetic brand. I used to apply this foundie by using fingers.only blend it,circle it and sure dab it.seriously nice eventhought you apply it without any pinceau brush or sponge.that's why I love this foundation.for best result, use it two layers,will give you natural finish even you put two layers.it is different from any foundie that create a mask look when u reapply the foundie.and one more,the best thing from this foundie is... When you apply this foundie on your face, you'll get the same look as what the chanel model is wearing this foundie and appear on website or the chanel advertising campaign.you'll get whay you paid.but maybe I am not reccommend you who have a very oily skin type.cause it's not matte. But sure it has cons : - not suitable for daily using(trust me,even u use the best foundation in the world,use foundie as daily routine will break out your skin) - because I have acne prone skin,I am now trying to use it rarely(not as daily routine again) - it's medium not full coverage(will be better use it together with make up base if you have many blemishes) Overall, I'd say it's nice.lightweight formula but broke out my skin when I use it daily
I love this lip balm. At first I would purchase a lip balm stick because lip balm stick consistency is usually better than lip balm pot version and more hygienic but I purchased it then after trying it for my friend. The tin is really cute. The scent is heavenly rose. I love rose scent so this lip balm is lovely for me. The color is peachy pink but looks clear on lips, no color but your lips will be feel so creamy. I love this lip balm. It moisturizes my lips for hours. The consistency is pretty good but won't heal chapped lips quickly after few times using. You may need to reapply it as daily so you can have the good result on your lips. When I applied it underneath my lipstick, it didn't leave any sticky feeling and looked okay but well yes it feels creamy. It is different between sticky and creamy.It is a good lipstick base either cs it has clear rosy creamy pink color.The price is fair, not really expensive for 16gr size. Basically i love stuffs that originally made in Japan, because it usually fits for asian skin type and Anna Sui is not way overpriced.love it.I usually apply it onto lips and its surroundings cs I have skin problems around it that chapped prone during the season changings.well this lipbalm is nice while sometimes leaves small dead skin that annoys my lipstick color but this is normal.will repurchase this lip balm.
this 3steps is more suitable for sensitive skin.not for acne prone skin.my face skin goes bad after using this product, I don't know wh ether it goes bad due to changing the new skincare products, but my previous GARNIER skin care for acne prone skin is much better and cheaper than this 3steps. However, I have to admit that all the products from this 3steps are soothe and calm but not to stop the pimples.Well, it doesn't combat the pimples not prevent the future acness, too.i hate it.my face now becomes very acne prone from slightly acne prone.and this 3steps are expensive,especially in my country.hate it.why i added 1 lippie rather than put only 1 lippie, because they soothe and remove dirt amazingly but not to combat the acnes.so, HATE IT!!!and the packaging are good.not easily broken and luxurious. while it worked quite well when the skin consultants from clinique counter tested it on my hand skin. At first i was amazed and the consultant said it would work better on face skin because hand skin was thicker than face skin,but it was totally wrong. My Garnier is much much much better and i'd prefer Clarins than this 3steps but I have to use up this products first before I purchase other skin solutions. So please don't waste ur money to buy this 3steps.I'm dissapointed with this solutions.
Toners -Clinique - Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion
melysaretsahana 6/2/2012 10:16:00 PM
It is probably more appropriate called as toner than clarifying lotion. You may need this one after using Clinique Facial Mousse, why ? Because the facial mousse is too gentle and not so strong to remove dirt and I find dark color on my cotton ball after using this toner, whereas I'd washed my face with clinique facial mousse. Well.here are the pros and cons : Pros : - It works well to clarify your face from dirt, remove any excess oil and dull face - It soothes.mild.won't irritate - Helps to remove make up Cons : - Expensive and eventhought it is well packed in 200ml bottle, it runs out easily - Sometimes it feels so tight on some areas. I don't know why my skin goes bad after using the 3steps from clinique. BUT this toner is amazing to remove dirt on my face skin. From the 3 steps range from clinique anti blemish solutions, I find this toner is the most proper and decent product.
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - Rose Velvet Hand Cream
melysaretsahana 5/28/2012 1:58:00 AM
GOSH!!!! I love this hand cream so muccccchhhhhhh!!!! I rarely use hand cream cause I thought using a body lotion is well enough to my skin,but I'm totaly wrong.my body skin is scaley , very dry and my hand skin is crazy dry, especially near my fingers.usually it looks horrible, very dryyyy!!! But when my friend gave me this hand cream,oh my God, suddenly my hand skin looks even,flawless and healthy.not crack anymore.the scent is very very good.smeellls nicccccceee!!! I love rose scent after using this product.I know it's pricey,but worth it,so I might purchase it later after my first tube run out.the packaging is so luxurious yet fancy and compact ! Esp.for the mini travel size is very cute! Well . One word for this product : AMAZING!
Cleansers -L'Oreal - Gentle Lip & Eye Makeup Remover
melysaretsahana 5/18/2012 12:41:00 PM
At first, I thought it was more pricey than maybelline. It was cheap and It was on sale. So I bought 3 bottles in 125 ml... About the packaging gives me both hate and love side. I hate the big bottle...uneasy to carry when traveling, meanwhile I love the 125ml size... bigger , means long last. It's more moist than my previous maybelline.. but a bit oily.reminds me of etude house make up remover.but etude house is much better, because this formula a lil greasy. It is not durable to take off make up but it is similiar to maybelline but maybelline is more gentle and mild. the only pro from this remover is because of a lil greasy...it won't irritate eyes nor under eyes.but OILY!!! After using this remover, i don't know why my face skin now becomes worse...moreover my face skin type is acne prone.i have some blemishes now on my face skin.I don't know whether it is because of my clinique 3 steps anti-blemish solution skin care or because of this loreal.because i'm now changing my skin care solution. welll.... it's not really good but very value for money.but i HATE the result.. breaks out my skin. would i repurchase this product? NO! My previous maybelline is much better.
It's good but i might say it's not the best one. It makes my face skin feel so soffttt... it's gentle and mild eventhough it's for oily skin, it won't make your skin goes dry.that's why i love it Pros - truly gentle and mild eventhought contains tamarinds granule as exfoliator - delivers soft skin - brightens and moist ,won't leave dry skin - safe for all skin type i suppose Cons - expensive - nothing special except for the gentle and mild texture - i'm still have my acnes on my skin using this foam, won't break out but won't cure blemishes
Cleansers -Clinique - Anti-Blemish Solutions Cleanser
melysaretsahana 5/4/2012 10:33:00 AM
i love clinique since i tried this cleanser as tester.... The clerkship tested this product on my hand along with the 3steps systems. It is very soft and mild...!!! it helps to remove dirt ...love it love it love it... and also brightens...cause it erases dull skin... I was so amazed then.but when I applied it on face skin.yes it is mild,gentle and not causing dryness nor peeling your face skin like many anti blemish solutions from dermatologist clinics.but I don't know why I had two acnes after first using.but it helped to combat the acnes quickly.but won't help to reduce the redness and future acnes.in my country it's pricey. I won'te purchase it again even thought it is mild and won't leave dryness too.and one more, because it is mousse,so you may pump the bottle more than twice,and I suppose it will run out quickly.well,this is my first time using this cleanser along with the 3steps skin care systems.but it is not so strong to remove dirt.you may need toner after washing your face with this cleanser.
It's allure and well yes it's alluring classy as every chanel fragrance... floral and very white floral but fresh and not soft...but not too strong this is not what i'm looking for but it's nice. Chanel coco mademoiselle is better...more citrusy and younger.this allure is more mature but not too mature as chanel coco. I just hate the vanilla composition, smell like mosquito repellent cream but allure blends well...so it smells classy.but it is not too strong as what YSL cinema is(YSL Cinema contains more vanilla note) i love the drydown and let it dripping lightly and diffuses...very soft and classy...make me want to sniff it again and again... it smells more citrusy in outer but soft on wrist... trust me it will send you to heaven... three words for this allure : Bold Feminine Classy It's suitable for evening occasion .... one more, it's long last
THIS FRAGRANCE IS SUPER.... FLORAL/FLOWERY FEMININE FANTASY fresh but NOT too strong AND ALLL.... I LOVE THIS FRAGRANCE! what more need I say?
