I really want to love Axiology lipsticks. They are natural and made in such a good way. I've got two and maybe just didn't pick the right ones.

True is a "rich creme". Lots of pigment and a bit of a citrusy scent that goes away pretty quickly. The description is: "This deep scarlet is truly the most romantic of reds with its hints of pink and beet." It is …

I really want to like this. The color is good (Vanilla) and I don't need to use very much because it is very pigmented. But, for some reason it seems to sit on top of my skin. I usually apply with my hands and try buffing with a good foundation brush and I end up with weird brush marks. Disappointing because this is a great brand and I love the packaging.

I have this in Red Orange. The color is fabulous and the way it goes on is great. It's a bit more scented than I usually like.

The only drawback is that it wears off really quickly--very evenly, which is nice, but after a bit it like I never put it on.

Got this at Daimaru in Kyoto. It was a spontaneous purchase when I was getting foundation. It is a really nice dark red, a bit sheer and a bit shiny. Very comfortable but not great wear time. I like the smaller tube and bullet.

I wear red lipstick everyday to work. I buy a new one every season. This is the first one I have repurchased. I bought 400 (Armani red) and 402. 402 is perfect for me. I like that it is a warm red, so for me more of a summer color, not too opaque and just a hint of shine. Love it. 400 is a great dark red that leans blue. I'm not repurchasing that one--there are too many fun options out there …Read more

I have been looking for a cushion foundation for the convenience factor. I've watched a lot of youtube reviews and tried a couple. This one is really working for me. I use color 23 medium beige--MAC NW20-25 for reference.

This cushion is not too dewy, which is my preference. Also, like most cushions it is pretty strongly scented but it has a green almost cucumber smell rather …

I bought this at Sephora. I have had good luck with direct from Korea bb creams but the lightest shade available at the store, 104 of this just did not match my skin (NW20-25) it felt too yellow. I also did not care for the "luminous" finish, which just looked shiny on me. So I did return it.

I see there is a 102 on the website, and that might work. But, again, I didn't …

No. No. No.

I got this in a Sephora mascara tester set so it is a small size, which I suppose could be different from the full size. It goes on beautifully. Then I was all set for my Halloween raccoon costume. Some of the worst deposit under my eyes I have ever encountered with a mascara.

Very pretty pinky nude. On me more pink than ylbb. This is supposed to be between a lip stick and balm but it has glossy finish so a very in between product. Sheer lipstick with gloss. I don't ever wear lipgloss but this seems okay, not too glossy and not at all sticky. Hyaluronic is supposed to be moisturizing and it is a very comfortable product on my lips. The sheer pinky color is easy to …Read more
