Fragrances -Les Parfums de Rosine - Rose de Rosine

I have had this fragrance for over 8 years now and have bought over. It is delicious but not super sweet and can be worn all year round and works well with my body chemistry. The smell of fresh roses but not your typical grandma's perfume.
Brows -Unlisted Brand - Geisha Ink - Eyebrow Liner

OMG LOVE this brow liner. It is perfect because most brow liner has some reddish brown but this is an awesome shade for brunettes! I love how I can now precisely draw in my brows without requiring brow powder. It lasted all day and night. Wore it to the gym, no problem. I will be repurchasing definitely!

I caved and bought this brush and just as the description, it is soft to the face but great firmness for buffing. It doesn't lift any dry skin on my cheeks. I am glad I got it, should have bought it earlier.
Purchased this last week and a few things: 1) The pump is a bit iffy because I have to do it several times and unlike any new pumps, it takes a much longer effort and then it finally squirted but it seems messy 2) I saw one of the reviewers talked about the high alcohol content, I agreed. It smells to alcoholy for me personally and gives me the feeling that it would dry up my skin. 3) I do like the texture and the coverage as it does feel comfy on my skin. 1/3, I don't think I would buy it again but love the bottle though. That is why I got sucker into buying it.
Eyeliner -Unlisted Brand - Geisha Ink - Liquid Eyeliner in Brown
sultry 5/26/2012 6:22:00 PM
I am known to only wear jet black liquid liner but when I found out this brand just launched a dark espresso brown, I thought why not? It is spring time and I don't want to look too made up. This season, I am going for the au naturel polish look basically fitting for luncheons and afternoon teas with the girls. Received it in the mail on Wednesday and wow, I am truly impressed. It is rich like the black but not as intense. It is great for the office and day wear. I also wore it on the bottom of my last line and it makes my lashes look fuller. Gives me the doe eye look, LOVE IT Keep up the good work Geisha Ink!!! You guys only make the best of the best. I am so happy to have found you.
Makeup Brushes -Urban Decay - Good Karma Blending Brush

I think this brush is amazing and I use it on cream eye shadow. Since it is synthetic, it won't make your brush stinky. I had mine for quite some time and it is worth the price. The shape of the brush kept well. Just don't jam it in your makeup case esp if it is too short for the brush. it is a big no-no
I wear this green all the time. It doesn't matter if it is winter or summer, it is the perfect green. I have bought over 4 pots of these and it blends nicely with warm or cool shades. I also have worn it as an eyeliner on the bottom lash, it is truly stunning.
I agree this product may be pricey but it is worth every penny. I love how it gives volume esp on the roots, absorb oil and truly works. It is a bit scary if you are wearing something white/light because there is a chance it could run down your temples. That being said, it has happened only once to me. I have tried both the black and the brown and they are both beautiful. A little goes a long way so use sparingly. This is my HG and I have been re-purchasing it for a very long time now. I am probably on my 6th - 8th bottles.
Powder -Unlisted Brand - Geisha Ink - Loose Mineral Foundation
sultry 3/11/2012 10:57:00 PM
I just got it on-line so I am surprise to see there is already a review. BTW, their website has started web sales again. LOVE this also! I am so impressed. I am usually quite skeptical with loose mineral because in the next 3-4 hours, my skin turns either super shiny looking or it turns orange. I wear Hisano#4 and it wears all day. Went for a late lunch with my good friend yesterday, literally sat at the hotel lounge for hours with her and then headed out for dinner and drinks with another girl friend. Wears all night. We took some photos in the evening and boy, my skin looks so flawless I hardly remember it is mine. Feels like on the skin, but coverage is amazing. I wore it with no concealer, seriously!!! This is by far my favorite clean makeup out there. Also, it is a semi-matte so it is good for dry/oily skin. Mine is combo and on my oily zones, it works great and around some of my dry area (cheeks) it did not pick up any dry spots :)
This is my first stila product. I was expecting something truly amazing but was so disappointed. Wow, i really feel like writing tonight because I can't stop reviewing.... it was way too yellow (i had cover up c) and it seriously did not blend easily. i broke out more from it, felt like my skin was in complete blockage. basically tried to pawn it off to my best friend and she grinned and said, if you don't want it, i don't think i should even consider it. darn!
Eye Makeup Remover -Lancome - Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover
sultry 3/10/2012 12:10:00 AM
I am not a huge fan of the oily bi-phasil. Whenever I make a mistake and try to wipe it off with this, it makes my makeup application a way more hellish day. As soon as I blink before wiping off the oil deposit from this makeup remover, it also takes off my mascara (depending on which I am wearing that day but 80% of them will come off if it is not waterproof).
Such a cool color. When I can't decide, I wear 'x'. it is a cross between peachy, goldy and pink. It brightens your complexion and wakes my eyes up. it is totally the best and would go with everything. I am on my 3rd pot. Can be use wet too!
Love Love Love! This is a true gardenia smell. It is like smelling a potted gardenia. I am only using it for special occasions.

It's a nice product, lightly scented. I still dont care for the petroleum though.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

Great for oily lids or someone who doesnt want to spend a lot of money on eyeshadow. It makes your eyeshadow sticks all day. It will not move or budge so it is great for long days/evenings The product does dry up fast so use it up or you lose it
