Honestly at first i did not like this at all. this was too small for its price and it did not seem to anti shine me. But i was wrong.
After several usage, i picked up know-how ..in applying this. You should not wipe ur face with this product's sponge..you just have to very lightly dab and da da! shine is gone. At first i also made mistake and complained that nothing is improving ..i …

First of all i have combination skin which tends to be oilier in summer and gets quite dry in winter. I had high hopes for this powder foundation because this one looked quite sleek in its packaging (but not very convenient) and kinda high end products.

1) This is very finely milled and quite easy to apply. I liked its sheer -(but buildable) coverage and it gave me just right coverage …

I did not like this product because it was very hard to find my match. It says if someone looks good in green, brown and orange, that person is warm tone. I am asian and i look very good only in red, pink, blue and white colour. Strangely enough, C2 looked better on me than N2 or W2. But this was also not an exact match. I tried W2, N2, W3 still not a right match for me. Everything looked just …Read more

This is like the only living nature product I liked so far. First of all, this product has almost no smell or very faint natural smell. It comes in a tube of 10ml which looks like juicy tube and quite easy to apply. This does not instantly gives you boost of moisture on lips but this stays on your lips giving you protection against winds and dryness and gives you nice shine too. (altho i dont …Read more

The packaging is not so sturdy but the content itself is quite good quality. I used shade "classic ivory" and it perfectly suit my skin tone. This product may be a bit too dry for dry or normal skin but I used this only when I had quite oily skin back then. (2002~) This also lasts long and gives you very sheer coverage. I liked it alot so did my friends. This is not very cakey yet kinda …Read more

I really like this product. This makes my lash look soft and natural. this does not give much volume but its still alright since this mascara does not make my lash look bristle or Fly's legs...not smooth.

But this mascara does not last much and it was all dried up within 2 months. Some mascara last longer than this.

This is ugly looking packaging but if the ontent is good i am usually satisfied. Yes this product helps control shine but it has very opaque finish and very far from being sheer. Also it feels heavy on my skin and this product does not go on smooth nor make lovely skin. The light shade was a bit light for my skin (ivory) the next shade was too dark for me. Besides, the puff is very cheap quality …Read more

I really dont understand why this mascara is alwyas picked as best products in magazines. This did nothing to me. Maybe this is good for blonde lash for tinting but since i have really black lash what i expect from mascara is usually definine, lenthening and mots of all, voluming. This did nothing. No definine, no lengthening and no volume and it made my lash look like rough bristle. This …Read more

Since i have quite pale skin I chose 100 because 200 look 2 dark for me. This has pink pearl particles and this did not look good on me since i dont have pinkish skin tone unlike caucasians. Gold or white particles would have been nicer. These red/pink particles looked so artificial and I did not look good at on pictures taken at night with flash. I really looked like a pink sparkly face.. :( and …Read more

The person "glamourdoll" has written a very good review. I Agree with her.

First of all, I did not like the packaging. It is in a jar and very hard to use. I used shade 2 and it was a bit greyish on me and made me look sick or tired. This has covered my pores though , so i was very glad. Very few foundation covers my pores LOL and this foundation has not broken me out. You …
