Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - VI Peel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/23/2015

I did the VI peel for melisma on both cheeks and it was also combined with a laser treatment for the melisma. I am Asian with olive skin and was told that BBL would not be safe for my skin so we opted for the VI Peel with IPL.

Day 1 (THURSDAY); I left the peel on until I went to bed. I actually went out to dinner that night with a hat on because you really couldn't see the orange …

Powder - Gabriel - Dual Powder Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/24/2015

I have been trying to replace my make-up with cleaner brands and also ones that are cruelty free. This is an excellent powder foundation. I like how it goes on and is buildable. I like powder for the summers because Houston is hot and humid.

The compact is kind of hard to open which is annoying but I love the product.

I have the medium beige and it is a perfect match for my …

Mascara - Buxom - Lash Waterproof Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/27/2015

I am not quite sure I would purchase again but I might....the wand is HUGE but the mascara itself does not smudge or flake and it defines my lashes well. A couple of coats gives me the volume I want. I have straight Asian lashes. I have a lot of issues with smudging so I am happy to have found one that stays put. My favorite mascara was Tom Ford but they test on animals so I had to find something …Read more

Highlighters - theBalm Cosmetics - Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter

5.0

Jul/27/2015

LOVE LOVE LOVE the Mary Lou Manizer; however, I really only use this as eye shadow. The absolute perfect lid color for almost any eye look. I love the packaging and love that it is cruelty, talc and paraben free. My other face products have luminizers in them so but I do use this on my no make up days...the days that I just curl my lashes, add mascara and brush this on and it is great. Definitely …Read more

Palettes - theBalm Cosmetics - Nude 'tude Eyeshadow Palette

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/27/2015

I am on the quest for cruelty free products so I bought this palette. I have never heard of The Balm before so I was kind of skeptical. I really like these shadows. Medium toned Asian with yellow undertones. There are You Tube videos that help with different looks. The only colors I haven't used are serious and sleek and this is because I don't use eye shadow as a liner. All of the …Read more

Mascara - Kjaer Weis - mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/29/2015

I am gradually replacing my make-up with non-toxic products and mascara is a tough one. Kjaer Weis is a great product for a very natural look. I am Asian so I have sparse and straight lashes...this is good for those everyday natural looks but not for the date night looks on the weekends. I have problems with smudging and flaking and this product does not smudge or flake even in the Houston heat …Read more

Lip Treatments - rms beauty - Lip Shine - Moment

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/29/2015

Moment is a medium nude brown which is a great day time shade. I don't really like lipstick and lip gloss can be too sticky...so this is perfect. The only thing is that I don't like applying with my fingers...a small lip brush is easier and not as messy.

I am gradually changing all of my make-up and skin care to non-toxic choices and I have found RMS to be a great product

Feb/24/2015

I have been a liquid eyeliner user for over 20 years and have mainly used Chanel or Lancome. I have tried gel liners and all different brands of liquid liners and I just accepted that they would all give me raccoon eye. Literally, I keep Q Tips in my purse to clean up under my eyes. Clio is amazing and I use it everyday and NO RACCOON EYES. I use to line my upper and lower lids and it stays …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Mizon - All In One Snail Repair Cream

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/12/2015

So I bought this from all the hype about Korean Products (I am Korean) and this is the most drying "cream" I have ever used. The consistency is very liquidy and I also broke out with several pimples and I never have pimples. I have been using it on my elbows just to use up the product so I don't feel like I am wasting my money.

I guess if maybe you are super oily this …

Concealers - CHANTECAILLE - Le Camouflage Stylo

Nov/22/2014

I have slight bags under my eyes with no real discoloration so this product is the perfect "wake me up" for under my eyes. I am NC 30 Asian Skin and the 4W shade looks like a natural highlight under my eyes. I have tried YSL Touche Eclat and it looks like I have product under my eyes. I also have tried BB eye brightener and that was not a natural look for me either. One click of the pen …Read more
