Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - Lumi Magique

I was very impressed by this foundation. Initially, I was concerned that this would make my oily/combo skin look and feel too greasy, but it does not have that effect at all. The 'lumi' part of this foundation refers more to the natural, satin finish that it gives. It effectively covers up my red spots, light post-acne scars, and smooths the appearance of my pores. This does not make me …Read more

Lip Gloss - L'Oreal Paris - Colour Riche Caresse Wet Shine Stain [DISCONTINUED]

Infinite Fuchsia is a bright mauve/ berry shade that looks good when you first apply it, but it fades unevenly. I tried the tips posted on here with this product but I was not satisfied with its lasting power. I applied one layer, waited for it to set, then applied a second layer. After two hours, the color had completely faded from my upper lip and the outer edge of my lower lip, leaving a …Read more

Mascara - Prestige - My Biggest Lashes Big Lash Effect Mascara

Aug/21/2012

I wasn't impressed by the lack of curl this mascara held. I like being able to see my lashes in the mirror when I look straight ahead but this mascara drooped them so it looked like I didn't have any lashes. The profile view was also not cute (in other words, straight and pointing downward). Japanese mascaras are the BEST at keeping a curl so maybe I have been spoiled by them …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Colorburst Lip Butter - Creme Brulee

At first, I wasn't a fan of the Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brulee. It is smooth, decently moisturizing, and has a subtle vanilla scent but on my NC20 skin and medium pigmented lips, it only provided a beige-ish sheen. It wasn't quite opaque enough to pass as a nude lip and it was too beige to pass as a plain lipbalm.

Then, I tried layering this over various pink lipsticks and …

Top/Base Coats - Seche - Dry Fast Top Coat

2.0

Apr/20/2012

The good:
- fast drying time
- glossy shine

The bad:
- major shrinkage! (nail color drying and pulling away from the tip of the nail, exposing a millimeter of natural nail)
- chips in fairly large chunks within 1 day
- strong smell

I have stalked the nail board for tips on how to prevent shrinkage and chipping but I am still unsuccessful. I have …

I have this in pink punch and while this looked pretty in the tube, I did not like it for several reasons.

Cons:
- dried lips!
- uneven and patchy application
- grainy and dry feeling
- waxy artificial smell
- cheap packaging

The color is a pretty bright pink but it does not transfer well onto my lips. Even after gently exfoliating and moisturizing …

Hair Color - Clairol - Nice 'n Easy Perfect 10

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/13/2012

I used Dark Brown and my hair turned out black. I was trying to get back to my natural Asian black hair but this shade of black was even darker than that, and had an obvious fake tone to it. It is like a blue-black after the blue tint fades. It just looks too harsh with my skintone so I can only hope it fades with time and doesn't come back to haunt me if I try to lighten my hair in the …Read more

Bronzers - MAC Cosmetics - Bronzing Powder

Jul/07/2011

My face always seems to be 2 shades lighter than my body (without make-up!) so I thought I would try this bronzer in Matte Bronze to make my face and body look like they are part of one person again. I am NC 20-25 and the shade looked a bit dark in the pan but it's a completely different story on the face.
I used my Mac 187 (duo fiber stippling brush) and buffed it along my cheekbones …

Liquid - REVLON - ColorStay Makeup [Reformulated Early 2013]

Jul/07/2011

This foundation provides great coverage with a semi-matte finish. I actually use the oily/combo one more like a concealer by first applying light dots under my eyes, the sides of my nose, and my chin, then blending it out. I set it lightly with Mac MSF in Medium and my face is complete for the day! I have oily skin and this routine does a good job at keeping my skin feeling/looking fresh. It does …Read more

Jun/02/2011

I have short above-the-shoulder hair that seems to get greasy faster than when I had long hair, so I like to wash my hair everyday. This makes my hair feel SO clean, feathery, light, and healthy. When I air-dry my hair, I can actually see lift in my roots, and I have very little hair! My pony-tail has the thickness of about a nickel.

My natural hair color is black and it is currently …
