I wasn't sure if I ever wanted to get this product since it cost more than I would like to pay for it so I am not that thrilled about the price ratio to the quantity unless I get it back in Europe. The packaging is beautiful and simple. I love the clicking instead of twisting the bottom. I don't use this as a concealer but as a highlighter so I don't have the exact shade matched …Read more

I was given this product by my boyfriend. He went out shopping and knew I'm into Eco-friendly products and that I have sensitive skin and like to scratch like a monkey. This lotion has a very strong scent. Even though it is suppose to comfort and calm a baby, it was making me feel like I took a bath in my mommy' perfume. My boyfriend called it the baby whore lotion. It is that strong of …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - L'Oreal Paris - Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base

It is cheaper than most primer I used. I love the mashed potato consistency. It feels so bouncy and applied easily but thick. It kept my skin matte and pores blurred, skin texture smooth. I do have to wait for the primer to set before I apply my tinted moisturizer or foundation on. I have dry sensitive skin but I only use this when it is hot and humid outside. My foundation stays for a long time …Read more

I got this recently and oh boy, it definitely didn't look like the swatches online where it pulled a pink shade, reddish pink shade. On me, it is bright reddish orange. I have Lustering which is a less intense color of Speak Louder, but buildable and did not look reddish orange. I'm looking for a pink lipstick that actually look pink.

Skin tone: NC 30-35
Slightly …

BB Cream - HADA LABO - Hyaluronic Acid BB Moist Cream SPF32 PA+++

I kinda gave up on bb creams. I still think they're glorified tinted moisturizer with too little amount of ingredients to really make a difference for the skin.

Most bb creams are just too pink or gray or too white, too light or too thick and cakey etc. Hada labo Moist bb was my last Asian bb cream and I won't repurchasing this product either. This comes close to my actual …

I love love LOVE this primer. I have a very dry skin and unlike most heavy silicone-based primers out there, it isn't drying out my skin. It is moisturizing and have a cooling effect on my skin. Take note that this primer does contain silicone unlike her other primers. However, this don't blur out imperfections or pores like most primers such as Loreal Magic Perfecting Base or Lancome …Read more

Mascara - SHISEIDO - Majolica Majorca Lash King Mascara

May/01/2013

After reading a lot about Majolica mascaras, I decided to take a plunge and get their latest mascara and that's Lash King. When I first got this, I thought the mascara is a too on a too dry side for being waterproof but I like that it didn't make my lashes crunchy but this formula do not hold my curl at all so this is a fail for me.

It also smudges under my eyes as the day …

Tinted Moisturizer - Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 - Illuminating

This gotta be my favorite formula for Laura Mercier TM. I have dry skin so it is rather on the dull at times. There is a glow-y and pearly-finish with this formula. I applied this all over my face after the hydrating primer and it didn't look like a disco ball.

Another use would be to add this formula to another foundation or tinted moisturizer or just use it as a highlighter …

Tinted Moisturizer - Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 - Oil Free

Apr/29/2013

I switched to the oil-free tinted moisturizer even though I have dry skin. I thought since I moved to Texas and the hot weather, the oil-free will help out. The oil-free is just not hydrating enough for my dry skin. It is harder to apply than the original formula but it has slightly more coverage. However, I am not liking the finish on my dry skin. My skin looks dry even with a moisturizer …Read more

Concealers - Sephora Collection - Perfecting Cover Concealer

Apr/10/2013

I got this concealer to replace Maybelline Fit Me concealer. I wanted something that actually covers acne scars and undereyes. Maybelline Fit Me was just too light and thin and fades.

Sephora Perfecting Cover Concealer has a better consistency but it dries really fast and dry looking on the skin. It didn't look that great on my skin. It can look cakey so a tiny bit goes a long …
