So without too much TMI lets see if I can write a proper review.

About my hair type. (Already a bit TMI) From when I was getting a brazilian wax, from actual Brazilians, I was told that I had less coarse hair, and much less of it (If I needed to wear a bikini a slight trim in length is all I need, no side work) So for all those Asians that might want to DIY Brazilian, this works …

I originally bought this blush 7 years ago and then I lost it. I couldn't find it but I remembered I loved the color so I bought a new one. I just found my original blush that I bought in 2008 and I realized something, L'oreal changed the color in at some point since I bought it. The original blush is actually matte, and slightly pinker then the current color. It's actually …Read more

This review is for the Radiant Formula, a reformulation of the Sheer Touch in 2013/2014.

Uses
I have skin that tans and burns. I will tan gradually in the summer, but I definitely burn if I'm not diligent with sunscreen at the pool/beach/park. I'm a light/medium in skin tone, so I picked SPF 50 just to have all the bases covered.

This is decent everyday …

My Skin
I'm Asian with NC20-25 skin. Neither of them matches me perfectly. And I have been matched to MUFE HD #140 through Sephora's Color IQ. It's close but not quite. And I'm between L'Oreal True Match W2-W3. I have combination oily skin that is dehydrated. (I'm bad at remembering to moisturize hence dehydrated) I mainly wear foundation to cover some hyper …

Feb/02/2014

This is a review for the Conair Double Ceramic Curling Iron. I have the 1 1/2 inch curler. My hair reaches my lower back. It's medium hair that can get slightly course at times depending on how well I moisturize. It's not super thick but I have a lot of it and it's bulky. It's also Asian hair that is super resistant to curling. I've had a couple of stylists that were in …Read more

This is my everyday perfume. My boyfriend recognize me by this scent since I started wearing it when we started dating. It's a sweet floral, but not roses and old lady,nor is it pure sugar. It's just the perfect, heady floral that will leave him intoxicated. I'm almost finished with my first bottle and while trying to find a second, I learn horrible news. It's being …Read more

Crap. The only word I can think of that would describe this. Thankfully I didn't waste my money on this. Rather, I was away for a trip and this was the bathroom amenities that the hotel provided. I usually bring my own, but since it was only a few days I thought it wouldn't hurt. I was so wrong.


I got long, almost to the small of my back, normal hair. I used …

This is HG mascara for me. While it's not suppose to be used as a mascara I use it as such. There is a learning curve when first using it. It dries quick so work on one eye at a time. I use this in combination with Maybelline Full and Soft. One coat of Full and Soft separates my lashes and immediately after that one coat of the 4 Day Stay. Just lightly comb the brush through all the lashes …Read more

If any of you live in NYC, this is the hair gel they use at the salon, Sei-Tomoko. I bought this on Folica, for about $15 for a 1.4 oz tube. Crazy price, I know, but you only need such a small amount, the tube last for a long time. It makes my hair sleek and smooths out the frizz. And it smells awesome, the kind of awesome that makes a guy comment on your hair. If you live in NYC, they also sell …Read more

This color is so hard to find. I've already bought a backup. It is a powder blush, and it looks so pretty on my NC25 skin tone. It's does have a little shimmer to it, but nothing chunky, or gaudy. This is my everyday blush, perfect to give me a light pinky/mauve glow. I use the Ecotools blush brush to apply. If you can track down this color, you must give it a try.
