This is my third Viseart Theory palette, after Cashmere and Minx. I think Viseart is the only brand I have tried where the colors look the same on the eyelid as they do in the pan. I barely had to do any blending to create a gorgeous look. The shimmers are gorgeous, not chunky, very little fallout, very mature eye friendly, and the mattes are buttery and smooth. The Siren palette is very peachy …Read more

I have been craving this blush shade ever since I saw it in a department store in Seoul, but that price tag! We don`t have this brand in Japan, but when I checked the prices in the US, they were at least 30% lower than what I saw on display in Lotte Department in Seoul. So, my thrifty side kept me from making the splash. During Black Friday the net-a-porter site dropped its shipping charges, so I …Read more

Eyeliner - ARTDECO - Soft Eyeliner Waterproof - Black

I can`t believe no one is talking about this brand. ARTDECO is a German brand, with some pretty solid products. I get it on Beautybay or when I travel to Europe. I picked up one of these eyeliners in Light Teal, which is a tricky color: if the quality is not up to par, it can fade easily and disappear. The ARTDECO liner was soft and buttery (and I had forgotten it in my drawer and did not use it …Read more

This review is for Fawn, Muse, and Decade. I have been wearing them for the last two weeks and playing with different applications. The easiest to wear and the ones that I would repurchase are definitely Fawn and especially Muse. Fawn is certainly a 90`s nude, the kind of lipstick that I used to admire on the supermodels back then, and steal as often as I could from my mom`s vanity. It`s an easy …Read more

RMK products are hit or miss for me, but when they are hit, boy, do I love them. This lipstick is an awesome fall color: a dusty rose mixed with brown which on my fair skin reads as a light burgundy. The formula is a matte, but not a flat, it has some sparkle in it, reminiscent of a gloss or a tinted lip oil. The packaging is that interesting rounded rectangular, flat cartridge which they had …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - CEZANNE - Make Retouch Base

This is a mattifying primer I use strictly for my nose, to keep my foundation from sliding and melting off. While I love the idea of using a natural base and I don’t care much for heavy coverage foundations, the problem is that my nose is really oily even when other parts of my face are dry, and I also have a lot of broken capillaries on the tip and sides of my nose that really aren’t very …Read more

I love the scent of this: youthful, spring vibes, flowers and powder. It seems to last on my clothes, but it dissipates very quickly from my wrists and shoulders. I was expecting more from Chanel and this price tag.

Maybeline has finally introduced this in Japan and I`ve been wearing this concealer for the first time for the last two weeks. It`s quite nice, for the price. Good points: high coverage with just a tiny bit of product, won`t settle (too much) into fine lines (if you use a tiny bit of product), good color range, decent staying power. The bad points, as everyone else, has already said: the stupid …Read more

Bath Treatments - Aveeno - 100% Natural Colloidal Oatmeal Soothing Bath Treatment

27 days ago

I know you shouldn`t be taking hot, scalding baths, but in Japan most homes lack central heating and the evening bath is a national ritual to warm up and stay so at least until you crawl into bed and fall asleep. I have been looking for bath salts that are beneficial and will not damage the skin barrier, and after watching a Dr. Dray video, I decided to give these Aveeno oatmeal sachets a try …Read more

Cleansers - Cetaphil - Gentle Skin Cleanser

This has become my non-foaming cleanser of choice. I`ve started on sensitizing my skin to retinoids by first doing a year+ of Adapalene/Differin, then switching to Tretinoin. My skin has adapted well, but it is definitly drier and needs a lot more TLC. At first I tried the CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser, also a non-foaming face wash that claims not to disturb your skin barrier. Well, it`s …Read more
