The price tag of this primer is atrocious, but this makes my makeup look so flawless throughout the day and it's spectacular in photos. I have oily skin and I found many matte primers felt tacky and did nothing for controlling oils or blurring out my pores. I got the HG Mineral Veil Primer as a deluxe sample from Sephora's 100 point perk because I found the price to be outrageous, yet …Read more

I finished a bottle of this and I can say that it is a decent bi-phase makeup remover, which you have to the shake the bottle to "activate" the removing properties. I took one lippie off because I found it slightly more oily than some drugstore brand makeup removers. It also takes a bit more time to remove waterproof mascaras compared to my HG L'Oreal Micellar Cleansing Water. I …Read more

This is my go-to lip scrub for sloughing away dried, peeling skin off my lips. I am a long time user of regular square bullet as I've gone through four tubes of these for a year now. The regular one is brown with larger and coarse sugar particles with a slippery base. It does its job of reducing the dry patches on my lips despite being rough, but it does not taste good at all. I recently …Read more

This is my new HG BB cream, which replaces my Lioele Triple Solutions. This stays on my oily, sweaty skin for up to 7+ hours and it has a light-medium coverage that can be layered. I use the shade light-medium which matches my NC20 complexion. I like to rub the product between my fingers and then gently dab/press the product into my skin to reduce my redness and scars. My skin looks effortlessly …Read more

Feb/24/2017

I love how lengthened my lashes look with this mascara, but I wish it held my curl better. My eyelashes are stick-straight stubby Asian eyelashes so it's very important that the mascara doesn't weigh down my eyelashes. I always use the waterproof formula for better curl hold and this one didn't make the cut. It did what it claimed which is lengthen and separate. I also didn't …Read more

This is an awesome brow gel for slightly sparse brows that need a little pigment and lift. I use this in the darkest shade which works best for my dark brown hair. I carefully scrape off the excess product on the side before letting the brush touch my eye brow because it's a wet formula that may weigh down the hairs instead. Overall, I find this easy to use and makes my brows look …Read more

Feb/04/2017

I love Posietint best as a natural light pink blush because it makes me look so fresh faced and youthful. As a lip tint, it's a little too subtle by itself and that's why I pair it with Dior Addict Lip Glow to intensify the pink color. I find this tint wears off quicker than Chacha Tint so that's one lippie removed. However I'll keep repurchasing this adorable product because …Read more

Feb/03/2017

This is the first lip tinted stain I've purchased from BeneFit Cosmetics and it has been my favorite out of all the others they offer. I'm a minimalist when it comes to makeup, especially when I'm in a hurry for school and work so I focus on achieving an even skin tone with a pop of color on my cheeks/lips. My complexion is of fair-medium Asian skin tone with warm undertones so I …Read more

Jan/23/2017

This is my.most beloved eyebrow pencil because it's so thin and soft to draw fine hair-like strokes with. My brows aren't very sparse, but they are uneven (one brow is more arched like I look constantly perplexed) but the Brow Wiz helps me achieve even natural brows. I don't need to press down with much pressure because the product is soft and blends nicely without leaving crumbly …Read more

Jan/21/2017

This micellar water blew me away as it is effective, yet gentle enough to remove my waterproof mascara with ease. In the past, I was let down by Garnier's micellar water (pink cap) because it felt drying and I wasn't fond of the earthy smell. I decided to give micellar water another chance by purchasing this particular product at Walgreens for about $10. First of all, this is pricier …Read more
