I agree with what other posters have said about the color. BeneFit used to offer this in a true neutral dark shade but now it's reddish brown. Terrible for folks who have true black hair. It looks awful on the skin and very unnatural. Wish they would bring back the original dark shade of powder.

Oh and God help you if you drop the compact on a bathroom floor, as I have done …

An expensive but worthwhile product. Covers beautifully. I used to use Prescriptives all the time, but this covers more smoothly than Prescriptives (if that's possible) and blends better on Asian skin. Medium light is the right color for me. Bought it in Japan and the exchange rate was terrible, so it was something like $30 USD for .16 fl oz (but at least it was duty-free, so that price …Read more

Eyeliner - Bobbi Brown - Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner - Black Ink

I generally agree with the rave reviews on this product (yes, it goes on smoothly; yes, it's nice and dark; yes, it's got p-r-e-t-t-y good staying power), *but* for some reason, I can't get this to product to work perfectly for me. Black Ink is so very dark and I find it hard to smudge, so my eyes actually end up looking smaller because they are lined too darkly and finely. When …Read more

This product really does smooth out fine lines. Must be the retinol. I'm Chinese and my skin is on the thick and oily side, so I didn't have any problems with drying out (to make sure, I put a light moisturizing gel-based lotion on after). The smell is pretty strong and icky, but I've noticed that a lot of treatment products (e.g., idebenone) smell fairly horrific and I suspect …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - L'Occitane - Immortelle Eye Balm

Sep/02/2007

This product has the crappiest packaging ever -- after one week of use, the plastic lid actually started to crack and then it fell apart, day by day, piece by piece. That said, I loved the texture of the cream itself; it went on very smooth and soft. The effects aren't particularly lasting, but then the product claims aren't very big either, so as far as it goes, it's a wonderful …Read more

Sep/02/2007

This feels like a very rich moisturizer, but not a whole lot more. There are a lot of product claims associated with this cream: "effective at stimulating and regenerating skin," "skin is smoother and firmer," "complexion is more even and luminous, pigmentation marks are lightened," "face looks visibly younger" and also that one of its primary components …Read more
