Mascara - Dior - Iconic High Definition Lash Curler Mascara

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/06/2009

Its a good thing I didn't buy this mascara because its a complete waste of money. I received a sample from one of my Japanese magazines. The formulation is thick and weighs my lashes down. It actually uncurls my lashes after application right after curling my lashes. My HGs (Imju Fiberwig & Majolica Majorca Lash Goreous Wing) do not do this. I don't know how its supposed to …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara in Black

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/06/2009

My friend recommended this mascara as a cheaper alternative to my favorite Japanese mascaras (Imju Fiberwig & Majolica Majorca Lash Gorgeous Wing). Too bad Beauty Tubes (BT) doesn't work well because it is cheaper. I don't like having to use a base coat for longer lashes when my regular mascaras can do the same without having to use a base coat. This mascara uncurls my lashes …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Waterproof Mascara

1.0

Sep/18/2008

Awful! I threw it away after three uses. The bristles were too far apart and clumped my lashes like crazy. The brush itself was too large to use effectively so that I ended up smearing mascara on my eyelid, which doesn't happen when using other mascaras. Worst of all, it uncurled my lashes that I just curled!

Mascara - Isehan - Kiss Me Heroine Make Long and Curl and Super Waterproof Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/18/2008

This mascara lengthened but it was not dramatic since the fibers were short in comparison to Majolica Majorca's Lash Gorgeous Wing. My lashed did not clump and it held my curl all day. It didn't wash off very well when I used a cleaning oil in comparison to cleaning off other mascaras. I could still see mascara residue the next morning when I curled my lashes. A tube only lasted …Read more

Powder - Paul & Joe Beaute - Dual Powder Foundation SPF 25

5.0

Aug/19/2008

This is my daily foundation that I use to tone down my cheeks that tend to flush bright pink. The coverage is good with out completely covering the pink in my cheeks--a tiny bit still shows--but I could probably make the pink go away if I layer more on. If I don't use finishing powder on top of the powder foundation my T-zone is a tad shiny at the end of the day but nothing horrible. I …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - CLARINS - Hand and Nail Treatment Cream

5.0

Aug/19/2008

This is my favorite hand creme ever! It isn't greasy and absorbs fast. I don't like waiting for my hand cremes to absorb so this one is nice. It has a light herbal smell that is not bad. I've had the 100mL / 3.5oz tube for nearly 3 months and is almost all done because I use hand creme so often. It so good that I have three smaller 50mL as back up stock. I just wish it …Read more

Cleansers - St. Ives - Olive Cleanser

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/19/2008

I guess a lot of people are having bad reactions to this cleanser but nothing bad has happened to my skin at all. I use this after using a cleansing oil, which I always do no matter which face wash I use, to remove my makeup. The face wash doesn't leave my skin tight & dry. I could be because it doesn't foam up a lot (but still enough) and it has a light fruit-herbal smell. I …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - shu uemura - Mini Eyelash Curler

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/02/2008

I have the regular Shu Uemura curler and it works fine but the mini curler was difficult to use. I purchased it to curl the outer lashes that never seem to curl right with a regular curler. It was too large for the outer corner lashes and awkward to use. My lashes are straight and point down, like most Asian lashes. I returned the mini curler to Nordstrom.

Treatments (Face) - SkinMedica - Vitamin C Complex

1.0
Created with Sketch.

May/23/2008

I have tried several other vitamin Cs (SK-II, DHC, Skinceuticals) and do not like the SkinMedica one at all for several reasons:

- It is a cream instead of a liquid serum. It felt too heavy compared with the other serums that I've tried.

- It leaves a dry-matte finish that some may like but it make applying sunscreen difficult. I felt that I had to use more …
