Shampoo - L'Oreal Paris - Advanced Haircare - Total Repair 5 Shampoo

May/19/2014

After one use, my scalp started breaking out that same night. Now it's swollen, and really painful to the touch. It feels ache-y, exactly like how a bruise feels. :-(

DH looked at my scalp just now, and was shocked. My entire scalp is red and swollen, while my hair follicles look like cystic acne. Imagine those nasty zits with a hair growing out of each. I was so shaken up by this …

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous - Icy Violet

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/17/2014

Although it looks quite cool in the tube, Revlon's "Icy Violet" lipstick is actually very neutral once applied, and suitable on many skin tones.

Originally released back in 1946, discontinued a few years ago, and now back for a limited time, this lipstick is a mid-toned plum, semi-sheer/semi-opaque, with a medium amount of shimmer. Like all other lipsticks in the Super …

Fragrances - Avon - Haiku Kyoto Flower

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/13/2014

Haiku Kyoto Flower is described as being a blend of "a tranquil bouquet of violet leaves and white peony blended with blissful cotton musk."

If you are going to judge this perfume based on what you smell during the first few minutes, you might be disappointed in it, just like what happened to me. However, if you are willing to be patient and give it some time, I think that …

Candles - Bath & Body Works - in general

4.0

Mar/11/2014

Pineapple Mango: Smells just like the fruits, instead of perfume-y. I can almost "taste" the flavors. This candle smells like juicy sweet and tarty pineapple, mango, and a hint of creamy vanilla to soften the sharpness.

London Calling: Reminds me of the time I worked at Teavana! Smells like tea and lemon; like a very expensive, top-quality Earl Grey.

Tokyo Petals: …

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous - Love That Pink

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/06/2014

I picked this shade out after asking myself, "What lipstick would Betty Draper wear?"

Love that Pink lipstick has medium coverage, and is neither light nor dark; neither warm nor cool. The finish is creamy-matte, and the best part of all -- the lipstick is unscented!

As far as drugstore lipsticks go, the ones from Revlon's Super Lustrous line are my absolutely …

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Day Dream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/06/2014

True to NARS' reputation for producing creamy-smooth powder blushes, "Day Dream" is a gorgeous coral-pink with a satin sheen. Despite being coral-based, it is quite neutral, being neither warm nor cool. I would say that this is "Orgasm" without the glitter.

This blush has excellent longevity. On my skin, it lasts all day at over 16 hours, until I washed it …

Eye Shadow - GUERLAIN - Ecrin 4 Couleurs - Attrape Coeur

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/06/2014

To be fair, this is a 100% perfectly good palette, with high-quality eye shadows. The shades are all very pigmented, are pleasantly buttery soft, and long-lasting. The palette has a polished, shiny gold finish with magnetic closure, and there are four shades inside. I have zero complaints. Unfortunately, this is not something that I would repurchase simply because there are so many similar …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - SHISEIDO - Refining Makeup Primer SPF 21

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/06/2014

This primer isn't just a primer; it is also a very effective skincare product with a good amount of stable sun protection. Shiseido Refining Makeup Primer mattifies the skin, smooths it out, prepares it for foundation, and evens out your skin tone. Because of its ability to even out the skin tone, it can actually be worn alone without foundation, should you wish.

Shiseido's …

Lip Gloss - Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Volupte Shine - Pourpre Intouchable

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/06/2014

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in "Pourpre Intouchable" is an interesting and sheer plum shade with a hint of red. Color-wise, it is flattering on most, if not all skin tones. On a lighter-skinned person, the lipstick adds a bright yet sheer punch of color, while showing up as a beautiful jewel-toned shade on a darker-skinned wearer. The lipstick has an extremely soft and smooth texture on the …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - CJ Scents - Gingerbread Amber

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/06/2014

Upon the initial spritz, it is a straightforward gingerbread scent. However, within five seconds, the bread-y note calms down quite a bit, and I can smell the sweet, expensive amber note. The amber and ginger notes continue to dance harmoniously together, complementing each other. After about 5-10 minutes, I start to notice a very nice almond note. It's not a simple, bitter almond scent, but …Read more
