for color 001

i use this only winter at my palest, it being lighter than a nc5.

The texture is creamy and light without being greasy, blends itsel so easily and at first seems as if there is not much coverage going on, but on pictures and comparing a before and after i could see the perfecting effect without heavy coverage. the finish is natural, not satin, not matte, not …

Eye Shadow - ADDICTION - Eye Lacquer WP in Aventure

Feb/04/2014

unique, tricky, cute and baddass

pretty much a liquid-gel eyeshadow in a vivid and clear red pink, no brown, white or purple in it to muddy it. dries fast and sets budge proof and evenly as long as it is applied sparingly.

despite such bold color it works exceptionally well to visually lift up the eye when placed in the upper outer v of the eyes on an otherwise mundane smoky …

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Yuskin Pharmaceutical-Yu-Be

Jan/03/2014

I bought this in the squeeze tube version, while in japan for around 6 dollars (exchange rate more or less).

The best hand salve/ cream ever for me.

Yet at first I wasn't impressed, it did not give me that rich cream feeling I love. This lotion was not too thick and easy to spread and somehow velvety after a few minutes.

Then the next day after using this I …

Highlighters - NARS Cosmetics - The Multiple in Luxor

This is a gorgeous pink silver creme stick to highlight the face.

I bought it for the color alone (my behavior pattern), unfortunately
when trying to highlight the top of my cheeks or anywhere where my skin is thin,
the texture is accentuated in a crease-y way because of the big shimmer particles and the contradictory dry texture. Nars is such a love hate affair for me so …

Hair Treatments - SHISEIDO - tsubaki treatment

3.0

Dec/01/2013

This is the treatment that comes packaged in a small pot and belongs to Tsubaki's "white line".

Texture: thick almost paste like, very rich.

Fragrance: soapy camellia

Overall: On my dry, thin and treated hair this works in place of a regular conditioner to tame the winter frizz. I still have frizz after blow-drying but much less than when using most …

Lotions/ Creams - Davines - Authentic Balm

Dec/01/2013

This is a body balm/ makeup remover/ hair treatment all at once.
I bought this for around 23 dollars during a Hankyu department store event.

Since its made from clean materials, it can work as a multipurpose hair/body/face product.
I mostly use this as a body cream, and hair leave in. As makeup remover is too expensive for my budget.

Scent: Gorgeous, expensive …

Very lovely light body lotion.

The scent is of warm woods, neroli, a hint of amber? and a non gourmand warm ginger for rounding up.

Maybe this is a men's body lotion as my husband quickly claimed it for his own use. I can see it working for women as well, since the scent could be a winter perfume. Light yet grounded.

I would beware from a full body …

Nov/28/2013

Color: A very pigmented rose fuchsia, very bold yet not vulgar. Cool and bright yet not unwearable, if you are not flattered by fuchsia, stay away, otherwise this is very stylish.

Texture-finish : Smooth glide Matte yet somehow glowing. Opaque at first swipe. When fading does not stain despite the strong color, fades evenly.

Package: From Paul & Joe there were several …

This is a high end loose powder eye shadow.

Color: #20 Ziggy- is a gorgeous complex dark khaki-taupe-brown. All at the same time. This powder is so shimmery, the shimmers are mostly golden, khaki. The overall impression is of titillating incense smoke.

Texture: Super fine powder, easily applied with fingers or a wet synthetic brush for intense impact. If set over a creamy or …

I read about this particular product in many beauty blogs. Intrigued, I went off to buy it. At first the sensible toothpaste like container is very practical, higienic and no frills. Clearly labeled and easy to carry around, I was glad to buy it as an all purpose cream.

Well, it has its pros and cons for me. On the pro side, it is very thick which creates a sort of film over my hands …
