Jun/07/2014

This feels like the infamous "gateway" Asian BB cream that leads to the vast horizon of BB creams from the East Asian beauty industry. After so many years of "BB" popularity, the M Perfect Cover BB cream is only average in my ranking. The pros to this BB cream is the current rather uniquely large shade selection, high SPF protection, and general ease of purchase. Coverage is …Read more

This foundation applies lighter than what you see... however with that said, it oxydized over the day to a nice shade of orange beige. Upon initial application it applies lighter, I was matched with shade 2.0 for NC20. The finish at first is nice, seems semi-matte, covers pores well, light weight. Give this a few more hours and it wears horribly, smudges, smears. turns orange. and enlarges my …Read more

Lip Treatments - eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Sweet Mint

Sep/27/2013

So far this is the only EOS that I actually like enough to consider rebuying. I found most of them not really moisturizing, smells odd, and a tad too waxy for my liking but this one is light weight and emollient with a nice simple and pleasant scent. The minty tingle is a plus. It's not greasy or too slippery and provides a semi-glossy finish so it's good worn alone or under a lipstick …Read more

I hesitated on this palette since the reviews are kind of mixed however the colors in it are too gorgeous to pass. It's a taupe/grey palette that I wasn't expecting a lot of pigmentation for since the newly packaged Maybelline quads are split in different sections and this one says "Chic Naturals". It is exactly that actually. Very modern, work friendly, and a bit different …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous - Love That Pink

Sep/24/2013

I never paid any attention to the pink lipsticks in the Revlon line (or any pink lipsticks for that matter) but picked this up because I found it discounted and figured why not? Love That Pink is the pink for any girl who normally CAN'T wear pink lipsticks. It's a neon warm coral-pink with a very strong red/orange tone. Vibrant, bright, but not garish, and while a very old shade. …Read more

Lip Gloss - RIMMEL - Show off lip lacquer

Aug/30/2013

Show Off is the American version of Rimmel Apocalips with the same color range and color shade names, same packaging, but different product name on the tube. I give these a 4 because of how much they remind me of a much more expensive product, that being OCC Lip Tars. I find them about 90% similar with just a smaller color range and more appealing packaging. The scent is equally as bother some …Read more

Jul/06/2013

I bought this on a whim not being too familiar with MUFE powder foundation products and not even too interested in the dual purpose of this powder however I'm pleasantly surprised. I've gotten a very similar finish to the MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural with this powder (even though this isn't baked). I have searched literally for years to find an alternative to the MAC …Read more

Apr/19/2013

This is great and one of the better box dyes in the market right now. I used this in 5RR Medium Vibrant Red which I believe is the commercial color and my reason to avidly search for this shade. Unfortunately this specific color isn't sold everywhere but select stores like Walgreens, Target, and via online...


However even with this said, the results to the color even on my …

This is a great no frills drugstore concealer. Easy to use wand applicator, Medium buildable coverage, doesn't settle into lines or skin surface irregularities, and decent lasting staying power.


I used to be a big fan of the Maybelline Mineral Power liquid concealer but sadly when it was discontinued I haven't found anything similar to it from any brand in the drugstore …

Hair Treatments - TIGI - Born To Rock Detangler

fromNekura

Sep/06/2012

The ingredient list to the Born To Rock detangler seems to have a lot of fruit extracts in it which is one difference I noticed compared to cheaper detanglers on the market however performance wise, I find this about the same if not even more mediocre than some other products I've used. I have waist length fine Asian hair as well so detanglers are a preference for me just to make mornings …Read more
