Fragrances - Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Perfumes - Bahiana

I love this perfume! It is citrusy which was what I was looking for but without the sharpness of Annick Goutal's l'hadrien (sp?). I don't get the weird middle note. I do agree that this scent opens beautifully but it seems to fade quickly. I am hoping that in winter it lasts longer. I plan to spray it in the decollete so that it gets in my blouse and I can smell it a little …Read more

Moisturizers - Giorgio Armani - Regenessence Multi-Corrective Rejuvenating cream

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/06/2011

Well, I have been using this cream for the last 3 days. This cream was suggested to me because my skin had dry patches when I went to try one of the eyes to kill intense e/s. I'm glad I tried it! My skin is that strange combination of normal/dry but with oily tzone. I had been using NARS creams for the last 2 months and obviously didn't help my skin. So far, this one has smoothed …Read more

Masks - Boscia - Luminizing Black Mask

Nov/28/2010

I have not used a peel-off mask since my 20s. I decided to try this one because I heard great reviews of it. In my 20s, I had normal/oily combination skin and now I'm more normal but with oily t-zone and large pores.
Anyway, I do not like this mask.

Cons: My eyes tear (I've tried twice). My eyes don't tear with other types of masks (clay, queen helene, etc); …

Lip Treatments - CHANEL - hydramax + active nutrition lip care

Jul/21/2010

Well, like the other poster here, I also do not find anything special about this lip care. The rouge coco lipsticks definitely are not as hydrating as advertised, so something moisturizing is needed as a base. If I am not using a glossimer on top, then I would use Fresh Sugar Lip treatment which, while is waxy, works with very light application! It's still half the price of the chanel lip …Read more

Bronzers - MAC Cosmetics - Pearlmatte Face Powder - MAC in Lillyland

I like this face palette! It's my first MAC one. I'm also wanting my first MSF, but I just don't know which one!
Anyway, I'm NW25/NC30-35 and the bronzer is perfect for me! I like applying bronzer and then applying the pink color on the cheeks. This did not turn orange on me.
I am so glad I purchased this!

Makeup Brushes - Sonia Kashuk - Large crease brush- white handle

5.0

I also love this brush for blending! Maybe it's because I have smaller eyes (I'm asian) and don't have a large crease. This works so well for me and I use it almost everyday. I do own MAC's 217 and like it, but sometimes I need bristles that are a bit shorter and stiffer so I reach for this one!

Primer/ Corrector - bareMinerals - Prime Time Oil Control

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/10/2009

I have an oily tzone and not many primers work as well as this one for me. I use NARS Sheer Matte foundation with this and my make up stays put. However, I still get oil breakthrough.

Very important to note (as other reviewers have posted):
- Only ONE pump is needed
- Apply to face very gently with NO rubbing motion
- You may not even use all the gel that's in …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Smoke and Mirrors palette

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/29/2009

As my first MAC e/s palette, I am pleased with the colors I get.

I've had it now for about 2 months and I realize what others are saying about this palette: the colors aren't pigmented enough; the color scheme is ho-hum, etc. I suppose if I were much more experienced with make up, I would have chosen another palette or created my own.

In the meantime, I'm …

Mascara - shu uemura - ultimate expression

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/29/2009

I was using the Shu's Precise Volume mascara which is a nice light mascara that only added curl to my lashes. I have sparse, straight asian lashes so I always use a waterproof formula to help with the curl.
I tried Ultimate Expressions at the MUA's suggestion and I like it. It added volume, length and curl. I now use it with Shiseido's mascara base and my results …
