Wonderful item! I have acne prone skin so it's hard to find a product that agrees with my skin. I haven't tried this product as a makeup base, I mix it with my La Mer TM w/ a 50/50 ratio in place of my foundation & set with loose powder. My face usually get shiny during lunch time but after using this product i don't need to blot my face until dinner time. I've used it for about a week and no negative reaction on my face what so ever. I still need to use concealer, but much less, just a dap here and there to cover up my dark circles and acne scars. This item gave my face a non cakey & flawless finish. The key is to blend blend blend (even when i use it with my TM, i can imagine it being more thicker if used by itself as a MU base) overall, this item is recommended! As with all Korean cosmetics... it's pretty heavily fragrant-ed but does disappear upon application. I also like the slim tube packaging, very hygienic and you can get the amount of product desired with the slim tip, no products wasted! p.s. i use the lighter color #21 and it works fine for me. Ipsa 101/102, shiseido OC20, La Mer TM Light 02. I was a NC20... not sure now because i don't use mac anymore! :P
Lip Treatments -MAC - Tinted Lip Conditioner - Gentle Coral
starryapple 2/20/2004 11:16:00 PM
I LOVE THIS!!! gives my lips a hint of healthy coral color. kept my lips moisturized!! love the SPF 15~~!! love the light vanilla scent. for $13.50, this is one heck of a good tinted lip balm!! the only thing i dislike is the pot... i hate sticking my finger it the product... but with so many good things about it, i guess i can stand the pot pkging!!! but hopefully they'll have a tube version! i'll for sure buy again when i run out!!
same with all MAC lipglass, i love the texture and smell. but this shade didn't work on me either! from the tube, the color is very pretty-> light lavender-ish pink w/ shimmer. but on my lips, it's just pale shimmer pink! it's almost same shade as my lips, which is not good, because my lips are very pale! cultured didn't wash me out like nymphette did, but it didn't look good on me either! =( i'm sad that this shade doesn't work for me.
i like the smell, the consistancy and the quality. i want to like this lipglass so much! but it didn't work on me! *sniff* from the tube, the color is pinkish w/ gold shimmer. but on my lips, no pink shows up and the gold shimmer washed out *so* bad! =( i guess gold just doesn't work for me! off the exchange for another lipglass.....
HOORAY! i finally found my HG under eye concealer! the texture is more of a liquid form other than creamy. but it covers my undereye circle w/o being too dry! it dries quickly, but it's still blendable! i use the lightest shade and it's perfect for my skin tone! (PPP) i think the tube can last me quite a while since i only use less than a peas size each time for my undereye circles! this is one of my favorite product from biotherm!
Eye Shadow -Almay - Bright Eyes Color Cream shadow
starryapple 6/20/2003 2:19:00 AM
i've got 4 of these (champagne, golden gleam, mocha and blue lights) i love the texture, it doesn't crease or slides off. it's the best cream shadow i've ever used! i use golden gleam as an e/s base and it's works perfect! even better than benefit's FYI! the blue light looks a bit greyish in color thou, but it's still a nice color! i have problem with it oozing all over, but now they're ok since i used them up a bit. (i found that my champagne one doesn't have much shadow in it...i only used it twice and the tube is almost flat already!!! hmmm... are they ripping me off there?)anyway, they're a great find for a cheaper price compared to MAC paint!
ooo...i LOVE this! it soaks up oil and took a whole bunch of my black heads away! i don't have any problem with the smell, infact, i happen to like the minty smell and feeling on my skin! it left my skin nice and glowy! i have sensitive combo skin, but it didn't irritate at all! (no dryness or red blotches) i got this BIG tube (w/ 30% free?) for only $1.55+ tax (it was on sale) what more can you ask for?! this is better than tbs tea tree oil mask imho! would repurchase again and again!
the rating is crazy! 41 reviews (42 now including mine) 5.0 rating and? 100%would buy again? anyway, due to all the raves for this blush, i had to go get one. i saw it once at walmart, but the color was so dull and brown-ish pink. i didn't think it would look good on me. but after MANY MANY raves, i finally picked it up at target! at first i was still a lil skeptical about the color. but since i brought it, i gave it a try...and OMG, it gave my face a nice but not over-powering flush. super natural, looks wonderful on my PPP skin, great lasting power, what more can i ask for? it was only around $4!! i'm impressed! go now...RUN..and get this blush!
Eye Makeup Remover -Rimmel - Gentle Eye Make Up Remover
starryapple 6/1/2003 2:48:00 AM
i got this because paleviolet told me that it's good. so i picked it up today @ walmart for $5. i thought it was a lil expensive for a rimmel product, but i decided to give it a try anyway. it only took TWO wipes for each eyes and it removed ALL of my eye MU including mascara! didn't irritate my eyes (i wear contact lens)! (i don't know if it would remove waterproof mascara thou because i don't use WP mascara) but this is WONDERFUL!! it became my HG eye MU remover immediatly after my first use! Bi-Facil is junk now... get this!!!
very cute cyberish pkg-ing~ but this is the FIRST product from Biotherm that i HATE. it flakes, smudge, doesn't do nothing for my lash.... it irritated my eyes too! (i wear contact lens) maybelline volume express is WAY better IMHO (but i don't use drug store mascara anymore!) it's $14, not worth the price! spend your $14 on something else!
i got this CP-ed from a friendly MUAer from Japan! i have it in clear and cherry~ clear is just a basic clear gloss and cherry is a shimmery pink (it goes on clear with shimmer) staying power is average, but i don't find it sticky, infact i think it's kinda watery! no foul scent, love the cute packaging! i *might* repurchase if it's still available when i finish the tube! (it's limited edition from nivea)
i have it in #110~ this is my first FAVORITE lipliner! the color is a MLBB color (natural mauve-pink shade), i can use this with clear gloss and it looks sooo natural (match my lipcolor PERFECTLY)!! soft, no tugging, blendable~ come with a brush on the opposite side! what more can you ask for? it's wonderful and i WILL repurchase in the future! price: $11.50
i love this! after i used this, my face is squeaky-clean, all MU removed, not too drying, no breakout on my sensitive combo skin! i also like the pump bottle for easy access~ nice price and does it job well!
Lip Treatments -The Body Shop - Born Lippy Lip Balm

i love all born lippy lipbalms! i collect tbs born lippy lipbalms and i love them! it gives off great glossy shine and moisturize well! the old formula smells more fruity, more sticky & it doesn't last as long as the new ones! but nonethe less, both formulas are great!!! =)
i collect TBS born lippy, and this is the one that i liked the least~ i think it smells like medicine! but same as all other born lippy, it does moisturize well and makes your lips glossy! but i won't repurchase this scent.....
