Toners - L'Oreal Paris - HYDRAFRESH Toner

I bought this product since it says "Alcohol free". I had hoped that this product would not irritate my eyes. When I applied it on my face, however, my eyes felt as if I took an eye bath with Tabasco! I didn't even apply it near my eyes. I am now scared to use this again. Also, I think the name "Hydrafresh" is misleading, since I don't find it doing anything. …Read more

Why such a low score with this product!!??

I have been using this product for many years. I love this product, since, as long as I use this, I don't need to buff the surface of my nails.

It dries quickly and I like the frosted finish.

I have reddish undertone around my eyes and desperately needed good eye shadow primer. I got frustrated at first before using this for the first time, since I didn't know exactly how to use this product. In other words,

1) Do I put foundation, concealer or powder with this?
2) If so, in what order?

Even at this point, I don't know.

Anyhow, I …

I have Patina. I had originally wanted the limited-edition color that Emma Stone was wearing in an ad, but a sales assistant suggested this color instead, saying it was similar to the other one that had been sold out.

I use the tip of my ring finger to apply this. It glides nicely and is not too hard or too runny. It has a subtle shimmer and not to opaque; I think the texture is …

Toners - Liz Earle - Instant Boost Skin Tonic

May/06/2013

I've been using this for over 7 years now. Let me start by saying that in Japan, where I'm from, we use toner for hydrating and moisturizing, unlike here in the US where it is used for 'wiping off' makeup cleanser (am I right??). So, this is my heaven-sent toner that hydrates, lightly moistrurizes and doesn't burn my skin like regular American toners that come with …Read more

I bought 3 different colors online, since they were reasonably-priced and came in a cardrige. I tried to use one, but it took forever for the lead to come out. After using, I tried to retract it by twisting the pencil to the opposite direction, but the lead didn't move. I, very gently, pushed the lead on a paper, hoping it would be pushed back. Wrong!! The tip just flattened on the …Read more

Fragrances - Liz Earle - Botanical Essence No.15

May/03/2013

I have been using Liz Earle skincare products for 6-7 years, so I was excited to try this. My first impression was like, "Hmm, OK", but it has become my go-to fragrance.

I consider this to be more wintery (in particular, compared to Botanical Essence No.1), because of its musky, vanilla quality. I don't have enough vocabulary to describe the scent in a poetic manner …

May/03/2013

Before I bought this, I used Tom Ford's and was disappointed. After reading several reviews, I decided to give this a try. I'm Japanese, but I sort of avoided Shiseido almost all my life, since I thought it was too cliche (stupid and unfounded, I know).

Anyhow, it has a rather dry, silky finish (you need to spread it quickly) and visibly brightens and evens out my …

May/03/2013

I never used bright / light colors in the past, until I saw how they could enhance and brighten eyes as I saw in my favorite beauty blog, Front Row Beauty.

I use the silver-ish color around the inner corner of my eyes and the green one on the other. The particles don't fall as some other ones and have nice icy, pearly, subtle sheen. To define my eyes further, I need darker …

May/03/2013

I normally don't use brown eyeshadows (they make my eyes look sunken), but I felt a sudden urge to get some for a change. I chose this, since I like sparky shadow.

As instructed, I used the pearly white color all over my eyelids, but it fell all over my eyes and I looked like I had sprinkled confetti over my face! By the way, I did not dig hard on it or anything. It happened …
