Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Lemonade Craze Eyeshadow Palette

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/20/2018

Bias alert but OMG LEMONADE? BERRY SHADES? SCENTED? Food + summer + cute packaging + cute shade names like Old Fashioned, Sweet Tea, Ice Pop = SOLD. I immediately went to Target's site and located one that carried it for $10.99. (Same price at Amazon, $13 at Ulta.)

Now back to earth, this is a Maybelline product and the quality of their shadows lately have taken a dive for the …

Palettes - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Subculture Eyeshadow Palette [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/20/2018

I squealed and picked this up at TJMaxx when I saw it for $25. (Later discounted a mere 3 weeks later to $21 at Sephora! *shakes fist*) This was a blind purchase, I had been out of loop, so discovered all the controversy AFTER taking it home. Boy was I sweating bullets after.

I'm glad I kept it, it's become one of my favorite palettes in my collection.

Eye Shadow - SHISEIDO - Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio RD299 Beach Grass

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/27/2014

Come on, how has this not been reviewed yet? This has been a MUB board favorite ever since it's release via the genius of creative director Dick Page. Beach Grass comes up nearly every single time someone is considering trying Shiseido eyeshadows! It flatters a wide variety of skin tones and coloring despite looking a bit challenging to use.

The texture is typical of Japanese eye …

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Haus of Gloi - Pumpkin Butter - Sanctum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/27/2014

Sanctum is from Haus of Gloi's Summer catalogue. It has made the rounds at least 3 years in a row that I'm aware of. I've not tried it in other mediums, but the pumpkin butter is fantastic!

From their website: "A welcome respite: Muskmelon, coconut water infused with bergamot flower, kaffir lime, polished ho wood and sticky benzoin."

To my nose, I …

Fragrances - Elizabeth and James - Nirvana Black

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/04/2014

Ahh, Sephora and their celebrity scents. I suspect they only have room for one or two, hence why Jennifer Anniston, Kate Walsh, and Leslie Blodgett's scents went the way of the dodo, to make space for Mary-Kate and Ashley's entrance.

I spritzed Nirvana Black, and I am impressed for its boldness. I can't think of anything mainstream now that smells like this, (but it does …

Lip Treatments - DHC - Lip Cream

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/04/2014

I bought this in Japan for around $6-7 at the drugstore. It gets high marks from cosme.net, which is similar to MUA in Japan, which is why I was interested in trying this out. This is the same brand infamous for their Deep Cleansing Oil.

I had this un-open and stored in a cool dark place for over a year before using it. By the time I opened it, it had a distinct rancid waxy smell, but …

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Kokuryudo - Hipitch Cleansing Oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/18/2013

Pronounced "high-pitch" not "hip-itch", I don't know why this product is not more popular in this day and age of cleaning oil / OCM frenzy. My mother was using this when I visited her in Japan, and it pleases me greatly.

Pros:
- cheap (relative to Shu, Fancl, DHC. If in Japan, it IS dirt cheap.)
- rinses clean once emulsified with water without …

Skincare - Body - Bath & Body Works - Signature Coconuts - Coconut Pineapple

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/22/2011

I had picked up the other two (Mango, Passionfruit) at a different store that had been out of Pineapple, so I excitedly grabbed it on impulse when I saw it stocked at a different location. Was in a rush, so didn't bother smelling it, banking on how I had liked the other two. It was NOT what I had expected at all! I can barely smell the coconut in this (I love coconut) and weirdly to my nose …Read more
