Jun/05/2013

This is a wonderful moisturizer for my very oily and acne prone skin. The description on the bottle doesn't indicate if the lotion is intended for your face, but I can verify that it is definitely suitable for the face. The bottle does indicate that the formula is non-comedogenic. My skin is extremely sensitive and prone to clogged pores and rosacea. This lotion has not aggravated my …Read more

(FYI, Becca has since changed the name of this product to Perfect Skin Mineral Powder Foundation. It is the same formula).

My skin background: Very oily, sensitive, and acne prone. I can get pretty red and ruddy on bad skin days. I have moderately yellow-based light Asian skin (approximately NC25, Becca concealer in Tahini.) I have difficulty finding foundations that don't clog …

My initial reaction to this product was negative, however it just takes some getting used to. This has turned out to be a lifesaver on oily hair days. I spray it on my roots about 6-7 inches away from my scalp, let it sit for a minute, then shake out or brush out my hair to get rid of the white residue. Also: sometimes the first few sprays won't work, so you'll need to spray a few …Read more

I can't rave enough about the color Endless Pink (09). I have been searching for a buildable, flattering bright raspberry pink matte lip color and this is it! For reference, I have light to fair yellow based Asian skin.
What's great about this product is that you can control the intensity of the color to a great degree. This makes it extremely versatile and easy to work with. For …

Liquid - BECCA - Radiant Skin Satin Finish Foundation

Nov/16/2012

Overall, I'm impressed. This non-heavy liquid foundation is extremely natural looking and the coverage is perfect for my needs. I have moderate redness from rosacea and minor pigmented acne scars. I sometimes still need a bit of concealer to cover the darker acne spots, but this foundation takes care of the majority of my skin issues. I only need a small amount to cover my entire face. The …Read more

Shampoo - Aussie - Aussome Volume Shampoo

This shampoo made my medium thickness, undyed Asian hair extremely dry, limp and straw-like after only one use. It also left my hair slightly tangled and dirty feeling. Please avoid this unless you have very fine and greasy hair!
I'll stick to Aussie Cleanse and Mend. It's not a volumizing shampoo, but it's gentle and moderately moisturizing.

I'm really pleased with this mascara. It adds definition, separation, and moderate volume & length with minimal clumps. The formula is a great consistency, it's not too thick or too thin.
It also passed my "yawn test". It does not run at all even when my eyes tear up! After wearing it for many hours, you may see a couple small flakes, but nothing really noticeable …

Mascara - Maybelline New York - GREAT LASH Lots of Lashes Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/13/2012

The first couple uses or so, this mascara is super clumpy and hard to work with. After this initial "breaking in" period, the formula dries out a bit and you can create full, thick lashes fairly easily with a bit of de-clumping. I had great results with it for about 2-3 weeks, then the formula gets too dry. I would rather spend more on a mascara that doesn't dry out as easily …Read more

Jul/13/2012

Edit: I've stopped using this because it was weighing my hair down too much for my liking. I like a lot of volume in my hair and I couldn't achieve it while using this product.

This product does work, however it's difficult to use correctly. If you have hair that is weighed down easily, you have to make sure not to use too much or else it'll build up into a gunky …
