This oil is absolutely wonderful for both the face and the body. For my body, I use it on damp skin because that makes it easier to smooth it out. On my face, it seems to work wonders! I have rather oily/combination skin and I feel that my face is getting less oily now that I regularly put oil on my face. After reading great things about argan oil, I purchased that, used it on my face a couple of …Read more

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Lustreglass - Venetian

Apr/02/2009

I wouldn't give this five lippies, because I'm not too excited about the way this looks without anything else on. It's a really sheer pinkish, reddish wet colour on the lips. However, after I've lined my lips with Rimmel Exaggarate lip liner in Diva Red and then with this lustreglass on top I get the perfect red lip look! My lips look glamourous and juicy and the staying power …Read more

Liquid - GUERLAIN - Parure Extreme [DISCONTINUED]

I didn't buy this foundation, but I asked for a sample and the SA gave me a generous one. Since Guerlain is incredibly expensive I didn't immediately want to splurge. I'm glad I didn't buy it, because I liked everything about it, except for the colour. It was just too warm toned for my Asian skin. I could tell a difference between the colour of my face and the colour of my …Read more

Cleansers - The Body Shop - Aloe Gentle Facial Wash

Jul/18/2007

This review is for the aloe vera facial wash in the pump bottle. I absolutely love this stuff, even though the smell is not entirely wonderful, but I can get over that. This is one of the few cleansers I have tried that leave my skin feeling clean AND not dried out! (The other one was brightening cleansing foam from l'occitane, but that was too expensive to buy on a regular basis. Plus, the …Read more

Pressed Powders - SHISEIDO - The Makeup Luminizing Color Powder [DISCONTINUED]

5.0

Jul/18/2007

I bought this powder a month ago in the lightest version because I wanted something that would brighten my skin. I think this product does just that. I use this product on top of my la roche posay foundation and dr. hauschka loose powder. That might sound like powder overkill, but my skin doesn't seem to mind. Best of all, it still looks really natural and not caky and mask like at all. The …Read more

Cleansers - The Body Shop - Moisture White Cleansing Powder

Jul/18/2007

I bought this cleanser because I'm always interested in products that claim to brighten the skin. I do feel that this product delivers on that account, however, as a cleanser I feel this product falls short. I like the idea of a powder that turns to a foam, but I don't like how it leaves my skin feeling dry and squeeky. I also think, but I'm not sure, that everytime I use this …Read more

Powder - Laura Mercier - Mineral Powder SPF 15

Jul/18/2007

Well, I bought this foundation a few weeks ago because I wanted to try out foundation that's supposedly 'good for the skin'. This is the first mineral foundation I have ever bought, so I can't really compare to other foundations. I bought the lightest colour suitable for my yellow undertone Real Sand. At first I thought I loved it, but I wanted to give it some more time, which …Read more

Mascara - Max Factor - 2000 Calorie Aqua Lash

May/23/2007

I never really thought mascaras were that much different from each other, so I always used maybelline's volume express in the waterproof version, since waterproof mascaras are the only ones that can hold my curl. However, since using max factor mascaras I found out that there can be a lot of difference. This one was even cheaper than the maybelline one, and it performs 10x better. It adds …Read more

Lip Gloss - Bourjois - Eau de gloss

May/16/2007

I just bought this gloss and I also just ate something with it. It stayed on my lips after I had my snack. I bought nr 15: framboise glacee, which was the strongest and most vibrant colour they had in their collection in the Netherlands. This colour gives my lips a really flushed look, as if I just ate a popsicle. The downside is that because this colour is rather pigmented it is rather difficult …Read more

Lip Gloss - Bourjois - Effet 3-D Glossy Lipstick Beige Theoric 16

May/11/2007

Even though I normally go for lipsticks since they are less sticky I really love this gloss and its subtle beige colour. It makes my lips look polished. The tube is long lasting but I would definitely buy again just for this colour. It doesn't feel sticky on the lips themselves, meaning that your lips won't be glued together, but in case your hair flies in your face, some hairs will …Read more
