Eye Shadow -Sukí - Triple Cream Eye Definer in Amber

This is a suble wash of coppery beige and it barely looks as if you are wearing anything. Very much the natural look.
Its a deep berry/MLBB type colour with a flat finish. It won't really stain the lips and it doesn't have huge staying power--but it feels light and pleasant on the lips. Its a pleasure to wear. Very natural.
I LOVE this product. Its a blush lipstick combo. I put it on my cheeks for a natural flush then on my lips. I have a darker tone to my lips (this is too light) so I use a nars bright red pencil lipstick to work this up to a bright pink for me. It is what I love to wear everyday and I don't want to be without it. I also own vermillion and though that is a really nice natural colour I prefer the hot pink I can create with the sandstone and the nars mixed together. It ROCKS for daytime.
Tinted Moisturizer -Sukí - SukiColor - Tinted Active Moisturizer

I absolutely love this tinted moisturiser. I have it in porcelain and its a perfect daytime makeup. Doesn't break me out, feels comfortable and makes the skin look lovely. Such a nice product! Saying this if you want your skin to look 'perfect' you might need to add some concealer if your skin isn't flawless. I have difficult acne prone skin and this seems to work well for me--no spots. My skin is medium pale and this is a good colour for me.
I don't dislike this product as much as the other reviewers--actually I think I quite like it. Gives quite a lot of body to my dry fine hair. Not sure if it gives much shine but probably a little and given the ingredients it ought to be good to the hair. Nice but expensive.
Conditioner -John Masters - Lavender & Avocado Intensive Conditioner

This product is too expensive in the UK. Actually the whole line of products is too expensive in the uk. That said, I like this conditioner and if it was half what it currently is in wholefoods I would continue to buy it. At 22 pounds though a product like this which is fine but not a miracle worker can not be justified.
This is such a con--salt and lavender essential oil--for 16 pounds??? Insane.
Conditioner -John Masters - dry hair nourishment and defrizzer

I noticed two really pretty looking girls buying some john masters products in wholefoods and was motivated to look again at this fantastically pricy natural brand. I tried this defrizzer out in the store and found it to be good but insanely priced. I bought a little bottle of something called vitarite activebio skin oil (has almost the same ingredient list as JM) then added some cederwook essential oil and some olive oil from my kitchen. It seems to do the trick and is a lot cheaper
This perfume is now discontinued and so I bought it on ebay from a seller in germany fairly cheaply. It is meant to be a scent of clove, pink pepper and carnation. I can smell the pink pepper which I don't like much. It has too much of a chemical smell about it for me. Though my hope is that the drydown will be nicer.
Have to disagree with most people on this site. The Sofina perfect UV breaks me out. I have the Nuance up version with a slightly pink cast. My skin is sensitive, acne prone and easily blocked. This gives instant rash/breakout. Not so with the Kanebo media primer interestingly enough so something in this does not agree with me. Will use it on my legs..
To me this perfume starts with a classic floral scent which is pretty and aqueous. It feels green and fresh. Then you get a wilting flower smell and something a bit carnal and earthy at the end. Drydown is cut grass or vertiver? Rather than unisex I think this perfume goes both ways... Feminine to start masculine as the perfume settles next to the skin.
I am undating. I LOVE this product. It covers and brightens the under eye area and I wouldn't be at all surprised if it was also treating it as well. FANTASTIC product. I have crepey wrinkled under eye area with dark shadow. Now they look pretty damn perfect This brightens, conceals and evens out. Does not last all through the day though. May need to add a bit more in the evening. Will settle in wrinkles if you have them. Needs under eye moisturiser.
Lovely foundation. Bought this in Japan while travelling. Quite expensive but then good foundations usually are. I use the lightest colour whice is 100 though also tested out the colour up from this --101 I think which seems to be the colour most people bought and reviewed. Both are great colours. Brighten up the face. Sheer even coverage. Really noticed the difference this made as I had been wearing mineral makeup before and that doesn't give a particularly good look. Better for the skin but not nearly as effective in making your skin look great. Exceptinal product!
5 stars for the money. This is a GREAT product and cheap. Does not break me out. It is a base for make up. Comes out thicker than some Japanese face products. Looks like foundation out of the tube. Needs quite a bit of blending as has a white cast but is a fairly sheer product. Looks fab under foundation. Would buy again
This review is a bit pre-emptive. Its a new purchase bought for a snip online. It seems like just a nice clear gloss. Nothing special but perhaps quite moisturising. No problems.
