This product did not brighten up my under eye area, but it did help with my fine lines. It burned the first time I used it, but that's probably why they told me to use only very little. My skin eventually got used to it, and it never reacted or anything, so I kept using it. This is very dry, and it is not an eye cream, so don't expect any moisturising. I had to buy a separate eye cream …Read more

Please don't expect any miracles from your eye creams. It's simply unrealistic to believe every single claim, because even if they did happen to their sample size, it most likely won't work out for everyone the same way. This eye cream is very basic. You put it on, and it moisturises your eye area. It absorbs instantly and it plumps up my fine lines just fine. It goes very well …Read more

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Fluidline-Rich Ground

Rich Ground is one of MAC's best fluidlines. It is not only gorgeous, it also performs! It is so easy to use, as the formula is utter perfection. It is much easier to use than Blacktrack, and unlike Blacktrack, Rich Ground doesn't have any problems with drying up. It is perfect for daytime; it's so light that you can even get away with a thick dramatic cat eye.

It works! I'm on my second pot of this stuff, and it was my first gel eyeliner, ever. I sometimes think about trying others, but I get turned off my lack of colour selection (I also like wearing coloured gel eyeliner) and poor ingredients (Bobbi Brown, I'm looking at you - why do you have to use so much parabens?! I would rather never try you than take my chances with breast cancer) …Read more

I live for dewy skin, and so this is a must-have for me! This product actually has a multitude of uses and I am sure that any makeup lover will happily welcome this product to their arsenal. My favourite thing to do is douse myself in this after I apply all my makeup (but before I apply my mascara, as it can sometimes cause it to smear) as it really helps to make your makeup look so much more …Read more

This review is for the Rainbow Pearls, which I believe is limited edition. In actuality this version is just a mix of pearls that are already available in the permanent line, so you can definitely make your own rainbow pearls by mixing certain pearls from Clair, Medium, or Dore. I use this product with my Hakuhodo B002, which is a finishing brush made from blue squirrel. I'm sure that the …Read more

Palettes - Urban Decay - NAKED2 Eyeshadow Palette

Don't buy into the hype. This is a decent palette at best. Urban Decay's NAKED palettes are decent, but so, so far from perfect. Maybe they're good from the price point, but you can find much, much, MUCH better eyeshadows from certain other luxury brands. I was at first so excited when I bought NAKED2; it swatched so, so beautifully. Better than even my holy grail eyeshadows. It …Read more

I love this stuff, I go through it so quickly and so happily. I'm on my third or fourth tub right now. I remember losing my first tub, which I quickly replaced with another. I remember finishing that tub, and once again quickly replacing it. I'm addicted, I think. The delicious scent makes it a pleasure to apply and reapply throughout the day, and the creamy texture is pleasant on the …Read more

Feb/03/2016

I had wanted to purchase Shiseido's White Lucent of Benefiance eye creams initially, but the pot packaging led me to choose this one instead, as it is more practical to use. When I first applied this, I hated it. It was so greasy, and it made my vision quite blurry. I didn't realize that I had used too much product, and that I got it everywhere. Learning my lesson, I wiped it off and …Read more

I have normal skin and, apart from my dark under eye circles, I have little to conceal. Because I have fairly good skin, so I use only the tiniest bit (perhaps less than a full pump) as less is more. I10 is perfect for my pale & fair skin with neutral/green undertones; the watery fluid is easily absorbed into the skin, less like makeup and more like skincare. The finish it imparts so …Read more
