Eye Primer - CANMAKE - Lasting Multi Eye-Makeup Base (Waterproof)

This is definitely the best eyeshadow primer I've ever used and all for under $10?! Over the years, I went through tubes of Urban Decay, Smashbox, Nars, Two Face, pretty much anything you can find at Sephora and there was something slightly wrong with each: primer color showed up on my skin, took too long to dry, eyeshadow still didn't stay put all day on my oily lids, etc …Read more

Skincare - Face - Deciem - The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2%

My experience: burns, then breaks you out. It makes your skin tight and shiny. I used 1-2 drops (my skin Is used to lactic acid) and after a few days, pimples popped up after I've had clear skin for months. Tried it again a few weeks later after my skin healed. Again, harsh and stung my skin, and then pimples cropped where I applied it where I normally don't break out. I've found …Read more

Jan/31/2018

I had to write a review for this because I wish I had listened to all the negative reviews (though in the minority, there are a significant number reporting the same reaction) instead of all the raves. There is definitely something in this cleanser that breaks people out (I haven't had a cystic acne breakout in years, and broke out in places I don't normally break out, like forehead …Read more

My skin disagrees with the negative reviews. I LOVE this moisturizer and after years of searching for a suitable daytime facial moisturizer, I've found it. It is light (not shiny or greasy), effective in helping my combination skin stay matte where it gets oily and moisturizing where it gets dry (especially since I use retin-A and it gets so dry and flaky sometimes). Makeup goes over it …Read more

I saw this on the sales associate at Sephora and asked what it was because it looked fabulous and the color was bright but attractive! I deep magenta/fuschia that doesn't look cheap or tacky. She was blonde and I am Asian, but it matched my skin tone and was a great change from my usual toned down colors or deep reds that I stick with. I highly recommend this color!

Mar/02/2013

This is my favorite foundation. I was using MUFE HD liquid fdtn but while it matched my skin, it was causing breakouts. I have tried Cover FX, Korres, Tarte, Clinique, Nars, Armani, etc.. and it always looked like I had a layer of makeup on (either the color was off or it would separate due to my oily T-zone), or caused breakouts, or just didn't cover well/disappeared after a few …Read more

Jul/09/2009

At first I loved this cream! I would wake up and my skin would be bright and hydrated but not oily at all. It seemed to be a perfect night cream. Then 2 weeks into it, I started breaking out a lot, in places I usually don't break out in. I stopped using it and I stopped breaking out, so I guess I won't be finishing the $75 jar. I don't like jar packaging for face creams, since it …Read more

This color looks great on my fair-medium asian complexion. It brightens up my skin and looks like the cold-wind-blown skin effect I was looking for, nice and rosy and youthful. The color does fade during the day and as for lips, it can be too fuschia/hot pink. I think it's a little expensive, and I am not sure if I will buy it again.

Scrubs - Dr. Brandt Skincare - Microdermabrasion in a Jar

Jul/22/2008

This is the only scrub worth buying. It makes my skin feel so soft, so clean, and my face has been clear since I've been using it (I was getting a random zit here and there recently so I thought I needed to exfoliate more). I actually really like the lemony smell and although it is really expensive, only a little bit is needed, and as it makes such a difference in the feel of my skin, I …Read more

This is an awesome highlighter. I put if on my cheeks (over blush) and brows and i can use it as eyeshadow also. It is really glowy like the name, rather than being sparkley or glittery, and on me, it's more of a silvery-gold than a yellowy-gold, which I love because it doesn't make my face look overdone.
