Foundations - SHISEIDO - Maquillage Lasting Stick Foundation UV

Jul/27/2013

The packaging is metal, compact, very sturdy but light. Very travel friendly. I am NC30 in MAC and chose the OC30 which is a great match. The coverage is medium-full. The texture is very easy to blend. I draw strokes on top of my flawed areas and smooth it out using Shiseido's flat top foundation brush, then dust a tiny bit of loose powder, done in less than one minute. I haven't used …Read more

Shave Products - Aveeno - Therapeutic Shave Gel with Oat

Dec/31/2009

I bought this in late summer because I ran out of my previous bottle of shaving gel. I stopped shaving during the winter so it stayed in my shower for a few months. I needed it right before my trip to florida during the winter, and the packaging rusted and stopped pumping out gel! This will rust if you have a humid bathroom. No likey.

For this price this is an amazing concealer!
I have horrible dark circles under my eyes but no wrinkles, this covers it up and not dry out my under eye area. It's creamy, very easy to blend and has become one of my favorite concealer for dark circles.
I couldn't care less about the powder though, too cakey.

Primer/ Corrector - MAKE UP FOR EVER - HD Microperfecting Primer in 2 Mauve

Unlike the clear version of the primer, this one (Mauve 02) is a lot harder to spread and less hydrating. I have to apply with a foundation brush to get it even, or i have blotches of uneven mauve color on my face. It doesn't let my foundation go on smoother, or makes it stay longer and has a old make up scent. Will not purchase this again.

I have MAC NC30 skin tone with a little less yellow base than NC30. I have both the 32 and 34 for MUFE F&B. I mix them up together, during the winter month I add more 32 and during the summer i add more 34.
You have to have a foundation brush or sponge to make it work, fingertips are just not as good as with a tool for this product. With the first layer, there's very minimal …

I have combination to dry skin and in a dry fall/winter climate it's my no.1 foundation. I'm MAC NC30 but with yellow/beige undertone (not as yellow as MAC), and I have this foundation in Absolute Almond 05 and absolute ecru 15. Absolute ecru 15 is a tad bit lighter than absolute almond 05, and slightly peachier. For me absolute almond 05 is a better match; it blends seamlessly into my …Read more

The face shop is a pretty famous brand from Korea and has it's market in the rest of Asia. It hasn't enter North America until recently I saw it's mask sheets being sold in Walgreen. Out of curiosity I picked a Vita C mask sheet, just to try it out.
The mask is $2.99 for one and 2 for $5, which is not bad for a drugstore marketed hydrating mask. The other ones from sana, juju …

Loose Powders - Stila - Hydrating Finishing Powder

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/15/2008

I couldn't resist any foundation product, especially loose powders and primers that says "hydrating" because my skin gets so dry during the winter. So when Stila came up with this I waited until beauty.com carried it with their 20% off sale to get one for myself.
The powder itself is not the most finely milled I've seen in this price range, just average. When I brushed it …

Love the color, hate the lasting power. It's like a ink stain blue. I used to write with ink pens, this look very similar to my blue black ink with a little bit of shimmer.
HATE the lasting power, first chipp on the second day when I applied with my usual OPI ridge filler and Seche top coat. Colors on the tips of my nails almost gone on the second day. Never seen such poor lasting …
