Sunscreen - SHISEIDO - Shiseido Senka Aging Care UV Sunscreen SPF50+ PA++++

ETA: 8/21 imo if you are prone to break out this SS is not for you.

This is similar to its sister sunscreen that comes in the blue bottle but it is in (an equally smaller) light orange tube. It contains PA++++ UVA protection to protect against dark spots, loss of firmness, and other sun damage. It also uses a blend of Coenzyme Q10 and hyaluronic acid to keep skin hydrated.

Cleansers - La Roche-Posay - Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser

I have thin and fair (NC 25) skin tho not overly sensitive compared to some of those in the other reviews (no roscea for example). Still, I alternate use of RetinA and lactic/glycolic acid every other day so my skin cannot handle any additional undue harshness. To tell the truth I have never focused on cleansers since a really good makeup remover has done the trick for years …

Lip Gloss - CHANEL - Glossimer - Praline [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/10/2010

This gloss is my ultimate HG in gloss, It is not sticky or drying and has decent enough staying power. However, I think most glosses need to be reapplied fairly often so that's not really saying much. The main thing for me is that it is a complementary shine without appearing greasy, glassy or vinyl-like and it has no sparkle, glitter, frost, or iridescence. I am an NC 30 and the Praline is …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - SHISEIDO - Eyelash Curler

Oct/10/2010

Since the Siseido eyelash curler is rivaled with Shu I'll go ahead and explain why the Shu does not work for me. The crimper of the Shu is too straight for my deepset eyes. I really have to work to postion the curler to capture even a few eyelashes while not pinching the skin toward the inside of my eyes at the same time. The Shiseido works consistently at every angle with no problem. I …Read more

Lip Liners - Jordana Cosmetics - Easyliner for Lips - Tawny

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/10/2010

This review is for the Jordana Retractable Lip Liner in Tawny. The liner was a 99 cent, impulse buy while waiting in line at the Walgreen's Makeup Counter. I am an NC30 and this colour exactly matches my lips which I'd describe as a neutral/natural muave with very little pink or brown undertones. It's not YLBB, it is more like Your Lips But...Your Lips. It's unlikely those …Read more

Skincare - Face - Prada - reviving bio-firm moisture spf15

4.0

Oct/08/2010

It's true the Reviving Bio-firm Moisture has the potential to be a pore clogger however my combination skin has not had a problem with that. If this is even remotely an issue with your skin then this serum is not for you.

I am thinking (just my opinion) the bio-firm may have a more useful and apparent benefit for mature women. I use it off and on for weeks and since I am one of …
