I don't buy regular conditioner anymore, just use this stuff after showering with a natural shampoo. It seems to work! Hair feels so soft and shiny. I like that I can really work it into the ends. I have really fine hair, and never had a problem with it feeling too greasy!
Treatments -Estee Lauder - Advanced Night Repair (Serum)

I guess I understand the hype. My skin quality has been better, pores tighter, etc. But I still get acne, this is not a magical product. I get hormonal flare ups all the time. One thing I will say is ANR repairs any red spots/irritation from acne (accidentally picking at it, after a hot shower, which makes my skin look awful!) overnight. I can see why it's great for anti-aging. I will say this stuff works, but not the exact thing I need for my skin. But I think I'm going to try Caudalie Vinoperfect serum next because I need something that fades acne scars faster. One bottle lasts me about 5 months. I use this a lot! If nothing else works, I'll come back to use ANR. I just hate spending full price on this stuff, and the only way I could get it for less is at duty-free ($76 vs $84 for 50ml bottle).
One of my first eye creams. I have genetic puffy eyes that only go away if I don't eat anything but salad or sleep exactly 8 hours, not over, not under...That's pretty complicated, so of course any old eye cream won't work. This cream is soothing and very moisturizing, but it didn't do anything for the bags under my eyes. I'm still on the lookout for something 10 or so dollars within the price range of this!
I wish it didn't come in such a long case, but I love this foundation. I've been looking for a HG foundation for ages, and, especially in dry dry dry LA winter, this has totally made me so excited to wear foundation. I am the kind of person who usually skips foundation even though I have lots of acne scars, because I hate the way foundation feels. This stuff is fantastic. I wear it in O20, the slightly yellow hue covers up all my redness. Love wearing it with the Shiseido foundation brush.
Makeup Brushes -Shiseido - Perfect Foundation Brush

I love this brush! I just started using it with the Shiseido Advanced Hydro Liquid foundation. I don't need to dab very much product at all, and it covers everything flawlessly. It is easy to build up coverage and it is so natural looking. It is so much better than the sponges that came with the foundation. The small size works really well. I travel a lot and everything needs to fit into my makeup bag. I haven't bought any high end brushes before. I am glad I made the splurge for this one!
In the winter, my face is too pale/ashy for Bobbi Brown Shimmerbrick, and because I'm Asian, most blushes make me look like 1) weird doll face 2)DRUNK AS HELL. I got NARS Luster the other day and I can say it is a miracle for neutral/slightly warm Asian skintones. It is peachy enough to be a blush, not muddy at all (I don't really wear bronzer ever), and makes me look healthy. Plus, my cheekbones are accentuated. I am really happy to have such a natural looking blush in my makeup bag. I am not a daring person when it comes to blush. Most of the time I don't even wear it. But NARS Luster has changed my mind about blushes!
I never use this. I know other people love it, but it looks like I'm transfiguring into a red panda or something. I just ordered Nars California, and hope it will be a smoother, warmer copper. Maybe Antiqued is just too cool on me, and I work better with warm colors, because my skin is neutral to warm. I tried so hard to love this color. I'm so sad that it doesn't work on me. It sits in my "other" make-up bag.
Shampoo -Organix - Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil shampoo

I love this shampoo! It makes my hair so silky and amazing. This one, and then the shea butter shampoo/conditioner are my favorite of this brand. The scent is kind of strong though.
Primer/ Corrector -Boots - Botanics Soothing & Calming Eye Base

A nice one to try out--I apply it with a concealor brush, it keeps my eye makeup on so far. Haven't used it as an undereye concealor yet.
This is wayyyyyy too expensive for a lip gloss, but the color looked fabulous on me and my sister. On me it was a sheer, bright pink, which actually suits my skin tone very well. All other glosses I've tried have been too bright or too sticky, but O-gloss is amazing. On my sister it turns darker, so I don't know why people have complained that it looks the same. But I will probably never fork out so much money for lip gloss again. I'd pay slightly more and get a NARS blush or something longer lasting. It was totally an impulse buy, but for now I'm happy with it.
