This burns my face and i use it as a pimple cream. It works well in bringing down the swell but other than that, it burns and the area turns red for several days.
I'm using the H9 hard formula in Seal Brown too and it stays till the end of the day. This is my first brow pencil and it is so user friendly plus the unique shape of the lead, but you got to go back to the SA to sharpen the pencil. Yes, it is expensive, 29 SGD if I recalled correctly but it last. I've been using it everyday for almost 2 years now. *gasp* =] The colour is great too, it can be paired with lighter shade of brow powder when you dye your hair to a lighter shade or use it as a natural brown-black colour. Great stuff!
Sunscreen -Avene - Ultra high protection cream SPF50

This is a very good sunscreen which doesn't react with my skin but I shouldn't have bought the one with the SPF50 because it does feel a little heavy on my face sometimes. It's absorbs easily into the skin and is not greasy, but please only apply a little at a time, not more than you need. This comes with a peachy tint like the rest of the reviewers said and does not leave a whitish cast for people with medium skin tones.
I'm reviewing for the older version too. This is a good fnd with a base underneath, not too drying or cakey. I used avene's sunscreen before that and it is a great combination. I feel that my skin looks dewy and you don't really need that much, one bottle lasts a long time. It covered minor redness and made the face flawless. I've always believed that revlon foundations are the best drugstore brands, sometimes even better than counter brands. It's a pity that they discontinued this. :(
Friendly for my pockets and I think it works better than MAC eye khol. I'm planning to buy more colours of it. I cannot say that it's staying power is excellent but at least it does not smudge as badly as MAC eye khol. It's a little hard to get off though.
Foundations -Fancl - Fancl Belmeil Milky Foundation

I mix this foundation with a bit of moisturizer to get a thinner texture as it can be quite heavy, at least i feel that it is heavy on my face. This is good but it doesn't stay on long, i can feel it slidding off my face in the middle of the day. My only complain is that you cannot keep this product for too long because of its short life span, I don't use fnd everyday and hardly can finish this. Will not buy it again.
Cleansers -Shu Uemura - High Performance Cleansing Oil Light
sn0wing 9/19/2006 6:01:00 AM
For the first few weeks of using, everything was fine, this is my first cleansing oil and it broke me out in red bumps in the end, which made me pretty afraid to try cleansing oil for a long time. It was probably cause the mixture inside was contaminated by don't-know-how-or-what and that messed up the cleansing oil. The used to be clear liquid turns abit milky with bits of black flakes. ?_? I'm not sure whether if it's only my bottle which has the medicated oil smell or it is like this all along. Well, the bottle is ruined and I'm very reluctant to throw it away cause of the expensive price I paid. I think fancl works better and the plus thing is that it is so much cheaper. I have quite sensitive combo skin.
This is a good primer if you have extra money to spend, it costs way too much, 69SGD on a small can which does not really last because the noozle squirts out so much mousse, I always end up cleaning the extra mousse away. :( However, it works real well in evening the skin tone and feels weightless on the skin, I normally put this on with loose powder following up, it does not really make the skin way too shiny/oily, just dewy. It's a good product but overpriced and comes in bad packaging. I'll buy this again IF I have not yet find a cheaper alternative. :)
It is very painful to peel this mask off the face, but i think it works somehow or rather, cos i see all the whiteheads and facial hair on the mask after being peeled out. I havent see any whitening effect yet either.
My brother and I both agreed that this mask help calm the red bumps, the mask make the bumps less red and also smaller. I had only use it once or twice so can hardly see the result in pore size. I have sensitive skin but this product works well for me.
This is a very light eye concealer but it does the job naturally, it DOES shows the fine lines but ONLY A LITTLE. It isn't a hassle for me to use the peach colour then the yellow one to cover my dark eye rings but i wish they will make the packaging better and the price($42) is too high, probably 30+ would be good. Undertone Light Up doesnt really stay all day either, u have to put some loose powder over it to set and I doubt it can cover very dark eye rings properly as there's only one shade, but do give it a try at the counter, no harm. =) Overall, it is good and i'll buy it again and again.
Mascara -Shiseido - The Makeup Mascara Base [DISCONTINUED]

This is a great marscara base, the best i've ever used, though it really hold the curls and seperates the lashes well, it doesnt lengthen much. U can use this base and no matter how many coats of marscara u put, the clumps can be easily combed away..
