I am almost finished my first bottle of this product and will probably repurchase. This is one of only two Burberry cosmetics I own. From my limited experience with the brand, they seem to be very high quality and subtle, more of a Chanel vibe than say Charlotte Tilberry. I have tried it as a primer and found that method a bit too shimmery. I generally like to use my hand as a palette, mixing a …Read more

I've had this for years and couldn't remember why I didn't use it. I had a professional manicure on Friday afternoon. My manicurist used Stickey as topcoat. I wanted to do a preventive thin coat on top on Sunday and thought I would experiment with this. The bottle still seemed fresh and not thick at all. I noticed that it didn't dry hard even though I didn't apply it too …Read more

I don't get this moisturizer, I guess. My skin is normal to dry. It doesn't really moisturize my skin very well, not even mixed with a dab of a ceramide serum or squalane and applied over several plumping serums that contain hyaluronic acid. All I feel is a slight waxiness. Theoretically, based on the ing list, it should be great. I'm using it up when I go to the gym with no makeup …Read more

I had avoided the ShiKai brand because I had once tried one of their shampoos and wasn't impressed. In cold weather, I rotate btw several body moisture products reasoning that a variety of formulas that my skin likes cover all bases. This one is great if I am showering before going out because it adsorbs quicker than the other winter formulas I use while still providing sufficient moisture …Read more

I purchased this color sight unseen. As I have aged, I am much pickier about lipstick texture. The sweet spot for me lately is a non-drying soft matte liquid formula, which isn't easy to find. A lot of mattes are too drying or have too thick a texture. This one is fairly thin, similar to YSL's Tatouage but it is quite a bit more drying. This isn't the fault of the lipstick, but the …Read more

I think the first time I bought the sadly now discontinued Shiseido Mascara Base, I got a packet of 50 as a gift. Love them. So soft, don't shed, perfect for applying my Biologique Recherche P50V. I stock up on Sephora VIB or on the rare times when other department stores that carry Shiseido have 20% off.

In my search to replace the discontinued Shiseido mascara base, I tried this. This is worse than nothing for me. It literally took all the curl out of my just curled lashes. Tried it over and under mascara. Same disgusting results either way. At least it's very cheap. If I had spent $25 which was about the price of the Shiseido, I would be livid.

Terra is much more natural on me than Nars Laguna powder bronzer or Edward Bess Daydream which are both a bit more golden and are the last 2 bronzers I used regularly. It is almost matte, but not flat. As another reviewer said, it does blend seamlessly into blush. I'm about NC15-20, neutral to warm. Although, in other makeup categories, foundation, blush, eyeshadow, etc, I am constantly …Read more

Lip Treatments - Bite Beauty - Agave Lip Balm

I have repurchased this balm so I do like it a lot, but only as a great moisturizing base under lipstick. I apply it when I prep my skin for makeup. Lipstick application is one of the last steps in my routine. By that point, this balm has sunk in leaving just enough waxiness for a smooth application of demi matte or cream lipstick.

I don’t use this balm as my nighttime lip moisturizer …

I hesitated a long time before buying this mist because it is very expensive, $78 for 1.7oz and no etailer that discounts in the US carries it. I had been using Missha First Essence mist for years as the first step in my AM routine. The Misha mist has a different ingredient list than the Misha First Essence in the non-mist format. But, the last time I ordered it, I noticed that the ingredient …Read more
