I was able to try this product through a friend who was a distributor. I could not afford it otherwise ($130). I am also probably too young to need it, but I thought a little prevention wouldn't hurt. It is a slightly sticky gel type texture, and has a somewhat organic/vinegary smell. Nothing too strong or offensive, but not quite pleasant. It does impart an incredible smoothness and …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - shu uemura - Eyelash Curler

5.0

Mar/19/2004

It really curls the lashes beautifully, instead of crimping into harsh spikey "L" shaped lashes, you get wonderfully curled flirty lashes. I love it. I accidentally bought the shishiedo curler, mistaking it for this one. It worked okay, but still too crimpy. I lost it recently and decided to try this one out, even though I was skeptical that it would be any different. I am pleased …Read more

Lip Gloss - mark. - Glow Baby Glow Hook-Up Lip Gloss - Hot

How weird. Some people are saying this is a really sheer gloss where mine was so pigmented. It reminded me of loreal's rougepulp gloss in texture and high color concentration. It was a lot bolder in color and shimmer than I expected, and initially it turned me off, but I played around with the application of it and found that it looks fabulous just applied to the center of my bottom lip …Read more

I wish I had a source in Spain because this product worked so well for me, but at $160 it was a bit steep. The Ampoules are generous and contain enough product for several applications each. It is a bit stingy and redness, but that is expected with any glycolic acid. The results, radient, smooth, soft skin.

Treatments (Face) - Biotherm - Source Therapie

Nice effective product that feels luxurious and gentle. It doesn't actually improve skin, but improves the appearance of skin while it is on. Smells fresh and organic and the packaging looks like a water droplet. All pleasing details. I found out it is basically baking soda in moisturizer, that is what the "source therapy" is. How disapointing. Nothing but fancy Arm and …Read more

What the hell is this for? It doesn't do anything but sit on your skin making any makeup you apply on top of it slide down your face! ha ha...I like the package and the smell so I bought it. It just doesn't seem useful at all. I tried to trick my boyfriend into using it after I figured out it had no purpose for me(it was so expensive! $35) I put it on his skin and it sank into his …Read more

Mar/05/2004

I used to use this for years, but now I've found a better replacement at 1/4 the price. I like babecake in Sophia (black) because I love cake eyeliner, it is so versatile. Drawbacks of Benefits babecake:
-expensive! Ben Nye is better and only $5
-poor packaging, hello lost cap?
-product gums up quickly, scraping off unusable product is a waste
-fades and smudges after a …

Eyeliner - Ben Nye - Ben Nye Cake Eyeliner

I loved this cake eyeliner. I used to use Benefit's Sophia, but at 1/4 the price and equal it quality, I think I will stick with the Ben Nye from now on. Rich saturated black that doesn't smudge, especially when used with Liqui-set. unfortunatly I ruined my little pot my using Liqui-set directly in the pot, next time I will use water and just run a drop of liqui-set over the line.

Lip Treatments - Prada - Prada Balm tint #4 - Berry

Mar/05/2004

cutest packaging ever and I like how hygenic it is to have tiny individual tubes. The color is very flattering and the texture is luxurious and silky. It is a little bit hard to squeeze out of the tube, but it just melts on your lips and has a sexy soft shine, almost matte, but still slightly glossy quality to it. I felt like Angelina Jolie. The smell reminds me of a japanes lemon tea cake I ate …Read more
