Lip Treatments - MAC Cosmetics - Hello Kitty -- Popster Tinted Lip Conditioner

After using this about 5 times I knew I had to get a back-up. This is my go-to TLC (on the days that I want to give Petting Pink a break). For my coloring (Asian, tanned) the coral-pink color is very flattering. I love that my husband thinks it's pink but my colleague says it's more coral (lol)!

I don't really have an issue with dipping my finger in the pot. I just …

Eyeliner - REVLON - ColorStay eyeliner in Black Brown

May/23/2009

This is such a great product that I had to try it on my colleague, who doesn't usually wear eyeliner because she felt she can't apply it well. She loved that it didn't budge when she got home, so she went out and bought one for herself and she loves it! She now wears eyeliner to work everyday!

I gave this a 2 for price, but if you have a 2-for-1 deal at your drugstore …

I AM ADDICTED.
The smell is pleasant without being overpowering (*ahem* Tendertone *ahem*), the taste isn't too bad either, and my lips look and feel kissable!
Few people like sticking their fingers in a pot over and over again, but the way I apply it, I don't really have to wipe my finger on anything after application.
The color is sheer, but buildable to a certain …

Cleansers - AcneFree - 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide Cleanser

ACNEFREE IS MY SAVIOR.

Five years ago I discovered that Clean & Clear Persagel-10 was the only product in any drugstore that could zap away my pimples once and for all. Unfortunately, it isn't practical to use 10% benzoyl peroxide all over my face.

After years of dealing with ineffective cleansers with salicylic acid (all that stinging sensation for nothing!), a …

I've been exfoliating a lot lately and my skin has been peeling and getting dried out. I decided to take this for a spin the other night.

OMG this stung my cheeks like a muthaeffer!! I had never felt stinging like that ever in my life! If you have sensitive acne-prone skin, avoid this product like the plague!!

I'm glad I didn't buy this (I swapped for it).

I didn't buy this. I received a bunch of sample-sized tubes of this from my derm.

This does NOTHING. I had a whole bunch of red acne (as opposed to whiteheads) on my cheeks and a bit on my forehead. I applied this 3x a week as recommended by my derm (who I don't even like- gonna ask for another one next time). This didn't get rid of anything. It didn't even …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Satin Lipstick - Brave

It's not very drying, but it doesn't really moisturize my lips either.

For reference, I'm a warm-toned NC30. Brave is an opaque lightly-pink nude color and does a nice job of muting my pink pigmented lips without making me look dead- there's just enough pink tinge to make me look alive! Can't wait to wear this with dramatic eye make-up!

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Bubble Bath

Oct/06/2008

I bought this thinking it can one-up OPI Makes Men Blush, but it doesn't. It's still a really great natural polish though. It's sheer, and it's a very very light pink with a touch of ivory. I think it's a little too pink for me though (NC35-ish). OPI MMB remains my HG my-nails-but-better n/p.

The formula is great! Very slightly streaky going on, but as it …

I bought this thinking it can one-up OPI Makes Men Blush (my current HG my-nails-but-better n/p), but it doesn't. It's still a really great natural polish though. It's sheer, and it's off-white with a touch of pink. I think it's a little too white for me though (NC35-ish).

Great formula, perfect perfect application. No streaks, bubbles, nada!

It makes my lips look ORANGE. On my hand it looks like coral with a tinge of red, but on my lips, it looked so bad. (I'm warm-toned NC30 with somewhat pigmented lips.)
