Overall, I agree with most when it comes to the coverage. It's a really good buildable foundation which doesn't look too cakey. I use my ss187 with it, and you can hardly tell that I'm wearing foundation at all, my skin just looks flawless.

I got this BOGO on drugstore.com, but when i received the package, one had a very very liquidy consistency, and the other one was …

Moisturizers - SK-II - Aqua Physics

Aug/21/2009

I LOVE THIS! I'm already on my second bottle. Mine comes in a blue-ish pump bottle instead of a tub, which I love. It is a translucent gel which dries almost to a powdery finish. (By powdery I mean it just leaves your skin super super soft, almost as if you're wearing a really fine-milled powder). I really don't feel like there's anything on my face when I use it. It's …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Neutrogena - Rainbath Refreshing Shower & Bath Gel

I LOVE THIS!!
I like almost everything about it. The smell is so wonderful! (Sorry I can't quite describe it, I don't exactly know how to articulate scents very well) As per instructions, I also use it as a shaving gel, and it works like a charm. The only drawback is that it is slightly pricey compared to regular body wash, but I've been using it for years, and it's worth …

Sunscreen - Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 55

I only got this product because apparently in my country they don't sell the Pure & Free Baby SPF 60, but I'm really happy with it. I'm rather paranoid about sunscreens making my face look like an oil slick, but this really did the trick. I bought it on impulse one day and decided to try it on in the car (I moisturized maybe 2 hours before?) and it didn't dry out my skin …Read more

Jul/25/2009

I quite love this product. It's much cheaper than the SK II stuff I've been using, and does the job pretty well. The tip of my nose tends to dry out quickly (considering I live in a really humid country) and I feel like I always need to dab on some extra cream. But other than that, I love it! I haven't broken out yet and doesn't leave any greasy residue. I think it absorbs …Read more

Eye Shadow - Coastal Scents - 28 Neutral Palette

Jun/24/2009

I can't decide whether I like this palette or not, but I probably won't buy it again. Most of the lighter shades don't work for my skin tone (NC30) and turn out chalky. I heard a lot of good things about how the colours were really pigmented, but I disagree. They are pretty pigmented given the price, but their darkest shade (bottom right) seems pigmented when swatched, but not on …Read more

Pressed Powders - MAC Cosmetics - Blot Powder - Dark

I love it. I'm an NC30 and thought this might be a little dark, but it works just fine! Great, actually. You don't need to use a lot, so it doesn't look cakey, and it keeps away the shinies. I don't have oily skin, but my T-zone does get pretty oily throughout the day, and this works. The good thing's that it doesn't make your skin unnaturally matte, just a satiny …Read more

Eyeliner - Red Earth - Red earth eyeliner pensil in purple

My friend gave this to me and really, it's kinda gross. The colour's pretty and all that, but it doesn't really glide on smoothly and smudges like no other product. Also, I find that when I sharpen the pencil, it keeps flaking, so I can't ever get a sharp point.

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Powerpoint - Bountiful Brown

I love this eyeliner! It has a nice metallic sheen without the chunky glitter and is my HG liner. For some reason I find my black one smudges a lot more. The only thing I don't like is that it comes in a pencil, rather than some twisting retractable thing like the technakohl liners, so you actually waste a lot of product because of all the sharpening.
