Treatments (Eye) - GUERLAIN - Issima Happylogy Eye

Apr/02/2008

I've been searching for a long time something that would be a miracle for that tiny area under my eyes. I've tried Clarin, Chanel, Kenzo, etc...countless (that's less than 70 dollars) and even buy a separate cream for puffiness and dark circle. Finally, I got to try issima samples by chance. I figured it won't hurt to give it a go and I'm convinced this is it! I …Read more

Body Scrubs - Philosophy - empowermint body scrub

Very minty. Scrubs and moisturizes well eventhough the texture is a bit runnier than gingerbread man and margarita salt scrub. It also has a cooling/tingling sensation effect. Great for a hot day!

Body Scrubs - Philosophy - guru (world-class hot salt, tub and shower scrub)

The guru set is back. You can find it on Philosophy web or amazon. I just bought a set 'cause I ran out of my gingerbread man scrub and could not find it anywhere but in this set. Personally, I prefer the scent of gingerbread man but margarita scrub is invigorating especially for a hot day (though it tends to be somewhat artificial). The texture is also thicker in gingerbread man. Both smell …Read more

Feminine yet not overly heady like Kenzo's Jungle. It's different from other gourmand perfumes out there, it's only lightly fruity unlike escada clones or grapefruit/apple frenzies out there; and it exudes sensuality. I normally prefer aqua/green/citrus or candy/fruity type of perfume but this one is so sexy, I cannot pass it up. The spray lingering in the air can be heavy but …Read more

Eyeliner - Bobbi Brown - Gel eyeliner in Granite

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/26/2007

I bought this after Urban Decay 24/7 glide on pencil in Zero bled on me in heat and humidity. I'm allergic to most liquid liners but this gel formula is very comfortable and easy to apply. Staying power is the best so far even though it's not waterproof. Granite is soft black. It's elegant without being severe. Too bad they don't carry wider range of colors. Real gray and …Read more

Dry down is elegant and seductive but the initial spritz and an hour or so it takes to fade totally kill me. It's just not worth an hour of a headache for me. Thank goodness I bought a sample size bottle. Too bad, dry down is like-no-other unique and regally exotic.

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Lash Stylist Mascara ] ] [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/03/2007

I'm Asian with average eyelashes that need both volume and length work. When Maybelline Lash Discovery came out I thought that was it for me...until Lash Stylist. On special occasion I have to use 3 different mascaras to achieve the effect Lash Stylist gives me, 1 base + 1 volumizing + 1 lengthening. Out of 16 mascaras I have (including Diorshow, Magnasopic, and MaxFactor 2000 calorie), I …Read more

Feb/03/2007

I'm so robbed by Clarins! I wish I had read the reviews before going out of my way to get one just because the case looks gorgeous in the photo. (I should have known when Clarins waterproof eyeliner pencil tugs, clumps and then smudges in a few hours...and the kit sold in airport promising radiance but it's just expensive oily film for me). This compact powder comes in silver/metal …Read more

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero

Jan/27/2007

Best companion to liner addicts! If I don't use liquid eyeliner, I have to use UD Zero. The pigment is intense, one stroke and it's done. The texture is light and velvet. It is definitely glide-on as promised and lasts well. No need to reapply or wipe off the raccoon blur mid-day. Very happy I found this. Better than other high-end brands I have tried at twice the price. My search is …Read more

Eyeliner - CLARINS - Eye Pencil (Crayon Yeux)

Jan/27/2007

This review is for Clarins Waterproof Eye Liner Pencil. I'm one of those people who are crazy about smokey eyes to the extreme. Even work days I cannot resist lining lash lines and corners of my eyes but I use liner pencil instead of liquid eye-liner so it's not too dramatic. Clarins Waterproof Eye Liner Pencil comes with its own sponge tip on the opposite end of the pencil. It's …Read more
