5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/01/2011

I have been using Highly Effective Skin-Tone Corrector (HESTC) along with Kiehl's new Photo-Age line that was just released.

I have been using the HESTC for few weeks and I am very pleased with the results - my brown spots across my nose/cheeks/forehead have faded gradually. I know it won't erase the spots off except chemical peel. My spots have become less noticeable …

have been using Lancome Radiance toner on/off for about 2 years. It depends on my face, if I don't feel clean enough, I use it. It's perfect during the summer.

I have been using Lancome Creme Radiance for about 2 years - love it, 1 drop becomes luxurious, rich lather and removes everything at once with my beloved Clarisonic Pro.

Feb/18/2010

I LOVE this shimmerbrick! I own several - sandstone, pink quartz, bronze, pink platinum, peony, and tawny. It's pretty lot for me, and this Nectar shimmerbrick won me over - gave me a beautiful pink-peachy glow that is PERFECT for my skintone. I'm dark brown with green eyes, fair-light skin with slightly yellow undertones (half Korean/half Scottish). This is my EVERYDAY blush and I …Read more

Call me brow-obsessed. I have been using Anastasia, Laura Mercier, Lancome and other stuffs - up and low, and I would end up loving the products for a while, until pictures or checking myself in the mirror while outside, I often find myself with reddish-taupish eyebrows! (I'm half-Korean and half-Scottish with green eyes, light with slightly yellow undertones, with dark brown hair) I …Read more

Lip Gloss - Buxom - Full-On Plumping Lip Polish - Destiny

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/23/2009

Since the Bare Escentuals boutiques discontinued the original lip gloss in Allure, which is my most favorite color. Until BE released the new Buxom lip gloss line recently, and I saw Destiny. They are almost close but at least it's still under BE!

It gives me "finished" look if I'm only wearing a touch of mascara, clean brows and a light brushing of bronze. I …

Makeup Brushes - Lancôme - Mineral Powder Foundation Brush

Mar/10/2009

It does feel soooo heavenly on your face! Super-soft! It doesn't make your foundation look heavy like BE's brushes -I do like BE brushes, but after a while it ends up scratchy on your face and it's not a comfortable feelings. I admit I'm a BE snob for few years, but I use Lancome skin care ever since I was 17 years old.

I use this made-by-the-heaven brush …

Mar/10/2009

I LOVE it!! I admit, I'm a BE snob for couple of years, but I use Lancome skin care ever since when I was 17 years old. When the Ageless Minerale foundation was launched, I thought to myself, what took Lancome too long to join the "mineral" thing....until I tried with Ivory 30 foundation and am very impressed with it. It doesn't settle in the few lines, smoothes and make …Read more

Pump Up the Jam - gorgeous blackish boysberry color with a slight shimmer - I picked the LAST one at Bath & Body Works store at the mall and applied to my short manicured nails with Essie's protein basecoat along with Hard Rock as top coat.
