Eye Primer - Estée Lauder - Little Black Primer

This works well as a lower lash mascara. It's good if you want just to bring out or emphasise your lower lashes without a clown effect. It also stays on well for hours in the hot and humid conditions of an Asian summer. I use it first on upper and lower lashes, then pile some other mascara on my upper lashes. If I have the time, I will add another coat to the upper lashes.

I like the click brush pen, it gives good control over the amount of concealer coming out and is the best of the liquid concealers that I have tried. No.4 is a perfect match for me and it covers well without being too thick unlike Clinique all about eyes concealer. Of course it needs setting with powder or it will smear and run into the lines around the eyes. If only they could fix this problem!

Yes! For oily eyelids and humid weather and long hours of MU wearing, this does the job very well. I use a tiny little blob on my eyelids and then my eyeliner pencil from mac. I finish with the Nars Smudge Brush and voila, wide awake eyes which still look good at the end of a long day.

Only just got my HG foundation and it will be discontinued very soon....how sad. Lauder really need to get their act together and find another way to give us another custom blend foundation...they have enough lines...maybe BB or EL or Clinique? Unable to get a Custom blend concealer as the saleswomen claimed no more empty bottles supplied and they will not use any others. Very sad about that as I …Read more

Walkyrie is my standby lip product if I'm not sure what to wear. Lost the first one and had to rebuy ouch! it is expensive but invaluable. Easy to use and light to carry, great to take on trips tho' it needs gloss or vaseline on top as it can emphasise less than perfect ly plumped lips. I will probably keep buying this and may even try some of the other colours.

Not a bad product though as only 2 colours available here in Hong Kong and neither is perfect...I am still looking...
Strange thing why no reviews for CLINIQUE DERMA WHITE SPOT CONCENTRATE CONCEALER SPF 21? That is a better colour match for me but a little dry to use. Has anyone else tried this? I would love to know what you think!
BTW does anyone know what has happened to the …

This has been the most Wonderful Brush for me! As someone who has never managed to look good with eyeliner (lopsided,uneven lines are my speciality!) My eyes looked subtly enhanced and both look even (Yipee!) If you are as old as me and as useless at eye lining then please try again with the Push....I really did not believe I could do such a good job. The Nars Senior International Makeup Artist …Read more

Using this with CE Ferulic has given my skin a bright and even tone.I layer B5 under Olay Serum and add another moisturiser if my skin feels extra dry, then I follow with sun protector. At night I use Alpha Hydrox AHA ,then B5 then Olay Serum.The packaging is a nuisance and I hope they change to a more practical, hygenic pump bottle. I refill the sample bottles from the big bottles (which I keep …Read more

Have been using this for more than 1 year and have noticed some improvement of skin tone and brightness (before I was using Cellex C which seemed nearly as effective) After reading MUA comments about oxidation I refill a sample size from the big size which I keep in the fridge.It is fiddly to use and can be unhygenic but that applies to Cellex C as well It would be much better in an airtight pump …Read more

Great for cleaning up the mascara and eyeliner mistakes and easy to take out for on the spot fixing up. I like this though as others have noted, it is easy to smear the rest of the eye makeup so you have to take care to dry up the area afterwards with a Qtip or dab of tissue.
