I find it quite amusing how the negative reviews of this product stemmed from different issues yet had one thing in common - they didn't follow the instructions (didn't use the amount and application recommended)

There's a neutral ground for those who reviewed this product to be negative but followed instructions. Everyone has different skin.

Being a …

I have gone through two tubs of this and I am just about to get my third one. After using this for two straight years, I think I'v gathered enough confidence to review this product. I am very much satisfied with this that I won't waste any more of my time and effort searching for the perfect setting powder for me as this has got to be it.

Generally, I have oily skin. Not …

Initially I was supposed to restock on my shiseido sun protection liquid foundation (just so you have an idea of the types of foundation that I use loyally). However they did not have a stock of the shade I use. So I tried to look for other foundations that are similar and to my surprise, I found it.

Pro's
1. Affordable. For the functionality and quantity of this product, you …

I have the most bipolar lips ever. It's perfectly smooth one minute and then chapped by the next. I've tried dozens of lip balms but they only do one thing in common - make my lips even drier.


I've been recommended to try this lip conditioner by MAC. And I bought it. I have this thing towards waxier lip balms as I find them to be the least drying, and this was …

If you are a current user of their apricot scrub, whatever variant it may be, I honestly suggest for you to ditch it and get this instead before you actually wreck havoc to your skin. This is way better since it is more gentle on the skin yet still gives you the satisfaction of having polished skin.


Pro's:
- Packaging is very convenient. You get decent control of how …

Speaking from someone who lives in a very hot and humid country, no, this lotion isn't as fast absorbing as what the bottle and others claim, not unless I turn the aircon on a relatively low temperature prior to using it. I hate that I have to wait a couple of minutes before it finally sinks in my skin so I feel as if there's this layer of goop sitting on top of my skin. To be honest …Read more

I was never really an anti-dandruff shampoo user but my scalp suffered from horrible flaking since I've used a particular salon brand shampoo and conditioner. Desperate to save my head (and hair), I decided to use this shampoo on a whim just for the heck of using an anti-dandruff shampoo for my suffering head.

I was kind of skeptic about it but after days of using this shampoo, I …

5 things:


1. NC35 skin tone here with pigmented lips. Color doesn't show up on my lips. It appears like I just had tinted lip balm.
2. Color is so misleading. For some reason it turns out red on my lips.
3. Packaging + smell = lovely (as always)
4. Quite expensive.
5. Non-drying.


Enough said.

I'm speaking on behalf of genetically pigmented lips and skintone ranging from nc35 to nc40. This would probably the be the best neutral lipstick for everyday use. First of all, it's Inexpensive. I bought it locally for around $3 in my country but I believe it's cheaper in the US where it is manufactured. So you can have the pleasure of using it and retouching with it everyday.

Such a disappointment. I have been hearing praises about this one and when I came across applying it, it didn't give me the look that i wanted which I normally get from most bb creams. I'm kind of having a love-hate relationship with this one.

Loves:
1. Tube packaging. Lack of prints or uniqueness in design may seem unappealing, dull, and what-have-you, but it's …
