This didn't work for me when I was in my 20s. Now that I'm trying it again in my 40s, I like to think that it works, although the effect isn't dramatic.

I've since tried this for 3 months. Here are the pros and cons based on my experience.

What's Great?
1. A long-established brand with 100 years of history
2. Drink is easy to prepare

Bought two of this lip gloss in Japan and loved the shine and natural tint. In fact the color I've chosen (#501) was my favorite of my Osaka loot. However, it's unlikely I would be repurchasing it.

Below is a list of its pros and cons:

What's Great?
1. Lovely Packaging
2. Glossy Effect With An Obvious Shine
3. Natural-Looking Lip With Just Enough …

2 months ago

This is the first eyeliner I've used that produces such a translucent and ultra-natural effect, you can wear it in your pajamas and not look out of place. I've tested it to be rub- and waterproof. However, it's unlikely I would be repurchasing it.

Below is a list of its pros and cons:

What's Great?
1. It’s Rub-Proof & Waterproof
2. No Need To …

This soft-shine lipstick is the best among those I've purchased in a recent Japan trip. The lips sparkle gently under bright light while remain natural-looking under normal lighting. Best of all, it's moisturizing on my dry and sensitive lips.

Below is a list of its pros and cons:

What's Great?
1. A Truly Hydrating Lipstick
2. Lasting Color

Lip Treatments - DHC - Color Lip Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

I've been using DHC Lip Cream for 5 years and am still loving it. Hauled numerous pieces back from a recent trip to Japan. This time around, I also got hold of the tinted version. They are sheer and translucent and priced at a premium as compared to the clear ones.

In terms of effectiveness, it's the same as the original ones, i.e. it moisturizes well, offers long-lasting …

Cleansers - L'Oreal Paris - Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser - Normal to Dry Skin

4.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

L'Oreal Micellar Water (pink version) works sufficiently well in removing light makeup. But an experiment I did shows that it's weaker in removing stubborn makeup (e.g. waterproof mascara) as compared to an oil cleanser.

Being prone to pimples, I also found out that I need to double-cleanse even though the product instruction said otherwise. Here are the pros and cons of …

4.0

Majolica Majorca Jeweling Pencil isn't the best option if you like a smudge-proof eyeliner. However, I find myself repurchasing it because I love how it smudges to give me a natural big-eye look.

Here are the pros and cons of Majolica Majorca Jeweling Pencil based on my actual experience:

What's Great?
1. Easy Application to Give a Natural Finish

Eye Makeup Remover - CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes & Lips

4.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

Clinique Eye Makeup Remover works quickly and effectively in removing my eye makeup, including waterproof mascara. Honestly, as compared to my favorite drugstore brands such as L'Oreal eye makeup remover, I didn't find Clinique to have a distinct advantage. However, it is no doubt prettier in packaging and boast presumably safer ingredients.

Here are the pros and cons of …
