Firstly, I am C35 and even darker in the summer, so most Asian BB creams are too dark for me. I am happy that BB creams are finally widely available in North America and I hope for more variety of shades for ladies of color. Now on to my review:

I picked up med/dark, however I could have worn the light/med as well (I tested both). So the good news is if you are darker than me …

Masks - Freeman Beauty - Feeling Beautiful Cucumber Facial Peel-Off Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/18/2012

Had to write my review to boost the ratings. I like this for the refreshing and cooling properties. I do detect cumcumber in the scent and it's not over bearing. I relaxed and watched my movie as I waited for it to dry. I think the act of peeling, does help lift dirt and impurities from the face. My skin felt smooth and fresh afterwards. Put it this way for 3 dollars I really cannot complain.

Misc Beauty Tools - SHISEIDO - Eyelash Curler

Oct/26/2011

I have two Shu Uemura eyelash curlers I picked up 5 or 6 years ago traveling to Asia. The replacement pads have been used up and I needed a new one. I ended up with the Shiseido eyelash curler (long story), the quality is good enough but the shape of the curler is, as others have mentioned, too flat for my eyes. I need to be able to get to the base of my lashes for a strong curl that holds and …Read more

Eyeliner - Annabelle - Smudge Paint

4.0

Oct/24/2011

I purchased the black smudge paint tar. The liner itself is a great product. It's creamy and budge proof once it sets. I own BB gel liner and several MAC fluidlines, compared to them the Annebelle feels tad bit runnier, which isn't a problem since it makes it easier to smudge (fluidliners are harder to smudge). The only downside for me is the packaging. The jar is tiny and the opening …Read more

Hair Removal - Gigi - All Purpose Honee Microwave Formula Wax Kit

5.0

Oct/17/2011

This review is just for the wax as I did not purchase the kit. I used this for the the hair under my arms which I deem to be a somewhat difficult spot to remove hair from. Before this, I had been using a non-warming sugaring wax call Alexandria if I can recall. I read the reviews on MUA before use. I took extra caution 1) not to over heat in microwave 2) not to drip sticky wax all over the …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Lipstick - Daring Pink (622)

Mar/21/2011

I don't think the name suits the lipstick. I wouldn't consider this lipstick to be "pink" and if anything it is very wearable so it isn't "daring" either. I think this got some low reviews because the name didn't match the lipstick.

If you are looking for a sheer wearable berry red this fits the bill. There's a tiny amount of silver …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Retro Matte Lipstick - Ruby Woo

Nov/15/2010

I absolutely adore this lipstick. It's amazing simply due to the beautiful color and how matte it is. I have Russian Red and I think I like this a bit more in terms of the intensity. Ironic thing is the very reason why I like it is also a source of contention for me. I find that it's so matte that it's hard to apply the lipstick onto my lips. I have to press very hard to get the …Read more

Nov/15/2010

This is an understated but my all time go to lipstick of all time. I have been wearing this color for over 10years. It has NEVER gone out of style for me. It gives any look, day or night a polished look. I use this as my nude lipstick without the deathly look. This also applies smoothly and opaquely. Just beautiful I love it and I have purchased this so many times I have lost count. MAC DO NOT …Read more

I've owned this blush for years and recently just got back from the Caribbean and started to apply this as a bronzer (along the sides of the face/temples) with really awesome results. My tan has actually been fading but everyone keeps commenting about how great my tan is! Before this I applied it as a blush which is also very nice. This blush is very versatile. Highly recommend it. I"m …Read more

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm Tin

Did they produce defective tin lids?? I am reading many reviewers having problems opening the tin lid. I however do not have this problem. In fact it is a cinch for me! I really like the tin box, very nostagic, nice and compact for storage and carrying around. Personally I don't like tube balms. I am a loyal bistex (the round plastic packaging) user. I got thisbecause of it's all …Read more
