The best self tanner I have tried! I have been using St Tropez for years and bought this one just because of the good reviews on makeupalley, but it's incredible! It gives the most natural even color, disappear gradually without leaving you all blotchy and leopatd-like, helps to clear breakouts on my chest and back. I love it and will be using it on my wedding day.

I can't believe I didn't review this yet. This is my favourite facial cleanser that I use daily for 5-6 years already. I know you are not supposed to use scrubs daily, but my skin is getting congested so easily, this staff is the only thing that keeps my pores clean and my face fresh looking. This is also amazing to get rid of the old self tan anywhere on your body. It does exfoliate …Read more

Concealers - bareMinerals - Well-Rested For Eyes

4.0

Jul/09/2013

I like this powder and use it as both concealer/eye shadow base. The color suits my skin tone perfectly and my eyes look well rested indeed with this on. Unfortunately it creases on me, settles into the fine lines and gets cakey easily. I keep using it as no-eyeshdow eyshadow on lazy make up days, but I don't think I will repurchase.

Self Tanners - St.Tropez - Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse

4.0

Jul/09/2013

I bought this in the hope of achiving a darker tan that my usual St.Tropez Self Tan Mousse gives me after one application. I find it just as good in terms of ease of application, but the color seems to be a bit more orange and not really darker than the original formula. I will use up the bottle, but would not repurchase.

The powder does what it says - basically it is a good setting powder that is almost invisible on the face. It doesn't matify my combo skin, but it helps my foundation last longer. I use Bare Minerals face powder brush with it. I tried it over different foundations and it does create a beautiful, even, velvety finish. I always use make up setting spray on top of it though. What I don't …Read more

Great cuticle remover, works almost instantly. I usually wash my hands with warm water for 2 minutes to soften the cuticles, then apply Mavala cuticle remover and push back cuticles with orangewood stick. Let it sit on my nails for 2 minutes, wipe it clean with tissue and trim cuticles. Takes only 10 minutes tops and makes my fingers look perfect. I wish this came in a squeeze tube, because it …Read more

This is a fantastic product. I bought it after I fell in love and used up large bottle of the pink cleansing oil by shu, but this one I like even better. Goes on very smooth, removing every trace of makeup without rubbing, no need to use cloth on top, just washes off with all the makeup and impurities. My skin feels great and pores feel clearer afte using this. Perfection! Would repurchase.

This lip balm is the only thing that can recover my chapped lips overnight even if they are in really bad condition. I rely on it if I intend to rock the lipstick next day. Just apply it before going to bed and wake up with perfectly smooth and plump lips. I can easily wear it during the day, it doesn't feel heavy on the lips and tastes delicious. Will repurchase when I run out. I used to …Read more

May/08/2013

I only bought this recently and had to pay too much for the delivery from US online store, but I really like this balm. I keep it on my desk to reapply at work throughout the day and it works perfectly. This is not a deep conditioning healing balm, but it works perfectly fine for the daytime lip care. The smell is delicious, packaging is cute and very well made. The only reason I will not …Read more

Apr/25/2013

This is one of the Korean makeup items I was looking forward to try for a long time, since my Korean colleague was raving about it for months. I loved the feeling of the foundation on my face after SA applied it carefully patting my face with the puff. It feels and looks very fresh, but not dewy, just natural and very flattering. However it starts to look cakey and melts away way too fast into …Read more
