Makeup Brushes - Alima Pure - Kitten Brush 23

2.0

I love Alima brushes in general, but this brush is poorly made. It sheds like crazy and it still leaks dye after many times of washing. I have NEVER had a single synthetic brush or skunk brush that sheds and bleeds like this.

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Forever Young

I know it's a bit late to review this LE MAC lipstick, but I've been totally bored with my other rose/pink/nude lipsticks lately, and decided to switch and wore this lipstick with real COLOR. It has a nice cranberry shade with just the right balance of creaminess and transparency. So it does not have the kind of glossy 'buttershine' finish, but a light creamy one that looks …Read more

I'm in love with the brown crease shade!I think it is one of the most gawjus brownish taupe shadows I've ever used. It enhances my lid color(I have medium olive skintone) instead of screaming 'I'm wearing eyeshadows'. The other two shades are just your run-of-the-mill peachy pink matte blush and champagne highlighting colors.

Blush - Giorgio Armani - Sheer Powder Blush #11

Sheer blush #11 is part of the 2007 Leather Collection for fall. In terms of color, it's a little pinker than #1 Sheer Blush, but has a very similar cool/muted tone and fine texture. It's the kind of soft pink you can't go wrong with( I don't see any peach as stated in the US Armani website). The compact is the same size as the ordinary Sheer Blush, but the cover comes in a …Read more

Treatments - ANNA SUI - Nail Polish Remover

This is a ridiculously good looking and expensive polish remover that smells too good to be a nail product. I don't think you need to pay this much for a remover(I've been told that all nail polish remover's stripping moisture from your nails anyway), but the rosy scent's to die for and the bottle's really pretty.

Hair Treatments - AVEDA - Sap Moss Nourishing Concentrate [DISCONTINUED]

Jun/16/2007

This is ridiculously expensive, but so worth it! My hair has lost the poker-straightness a year after I did my japanese straightening treatment, and can look somewhat wavy and weightless in the roots, which i hate! But after using this treatment, my hair look as though it's been blown dried professionally. It has the bounciness and lustre of a professional treatment. What I like best is …Read more

Hair Treatments - Kérastase - Kerastase Nutritive Irisome Masquintense Thick Hair

Jun/16/2007

I made a big mistake in buying the salon size of this treatment before trying it out first. It's very smoothing and makes my hair smooth and tangle-free, but so does many cheaper alternatives!
What i don't like about this mask is that i feel it's weighing down my hair, and the smell is too overwhelming. Perhaps my hair isn't that dry to take advantage of the full goodness …

Misc Beauty Tools - Tweezerman - tweezers

I have bought around 3 slanted tweezerman tweezers and since u have permanent sharpening service, i don't think i actually that many. My experience is that they work really great in the first few months, but once they lose their precise grip, u need to sharpen them. I find that Rubis tweezers stay sharp longer, so i don't think i'd stick to the Rubis ones.
