Eyeliner - Maybelline New York - Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - Blackest Black

To be honest, this isn't as good as MAC Black Track. I was really excited based on the reviews, especially as both my MAC and Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner were dry beyond saving. First of all, the price was ok (I got it during a drugstore.com sale). The brush it comes with is quite small, which is great for making thin lines, but I typically like to do a cat eye, and found that this was harder …Read more

Moisturizers - VICHY - Vichy Aqualia Thermal SPF 30 - 24Hr Hydrating Fortifying Lotion

I really wanted to like this, as Vichy's micellar lotion was working wonders for my skin. Unfortunately, a week into using this, I started noticing a lot of clogged pores and small pimples appearing on my cheeks and chin. Disappointing, especially because it costs so much for just one little bottle ($30 at my Walgreens, but there was a $10 off promo.. but still)!

I have acne prone skin that can get very dry and peely, especially when using my acne treatment (Tazorac). My skin would get tight, itchy, and often scaly within minutes after washing my face, no matter what cleanser I used. After a trip to France where my skin broke out like crazy, I started suspecting that my skin reacts badly to different kinds of tap water. Then I read about how popular these …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Jurlique - Skin Balancing Face Oil

I like this oil. I can actually understand the ingredients list, so it feels like I'm doing something good for my skin. My skin is acne prone/combo, and has been really dehydrated since the winter time. For months it seemed that nothing could do anything for the flaky, dry skin. This definitely helps, although it usually isn't enough moisture unless I re-apply a few minutes later or use …Read more

Eye Primer - Too Faced - Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer

This product is cheaper than Urban Decay's eyelid primer, but in my opinion doesn't work as well. I don't think my lids are particularly oily, but I often have problems with my eyeliner transferring to my crease (hooray for Asian eyes). This primer goes on a little oily, and by the end of the day, I find that the eyeliner has traveled. I usually use Revlon Colorstay or MAC …Read more

Blush - Cargo Cosmetics - Blu-ray High Definition Blush Highlighter

Jan/20/2010

There was a 50% off Cargo sale going on at Sephora, and I thought I would make out like a bandit. Turns out all of their blushes were gone except for this one. I was intrigued by the "blu ray" aspect of it, and it looked very pretty in the pan indeed (albeit pretty sparkly). However, after swiping it on my hand I thought "No way is this going to show up on my face." I have …Read more

Sunscreen - SHISEIDO - Anessa - Perfect Smooth Sunscreen SPF 50+ PA+++ [DISCONTINUED]

I LOVE this! One of the things I was really looking forward to on a recent trip to Asia was getting my hands on some Japanese sunscreen! I've tried a few Japanese brands in the past, and have always been very pleased, but this one seems to apply even more smoothly than all the rest. It's very milky and easy to spread and leaves a very smooth finish. I hesitate to say this dries out my …Read more

Eye Shadow - KANEBO - Kate Deep Trap Eyes

Dec/27/2009

I bought this palette after reading a review on the Lotus Palace blog. It's one of the newer palettes that came out either this year or last year. The packaging features Kate's signature glossy plastic compact with a round cut-out window (which means there's no mirror), and includes a double-ended applicator. I have this in GN-1; the colors are creamy off-white, bronze, sea foam …Read more

Dec/27/2009

Ugh. This product is, in a word, disgusting. Did the company do any kind of user testing on this product at all? This moisturizer looks, feels, and smells like margarine. If you like smearing Country Crock on your face, then by all means, take a stab at this (then again, the Country Crock will probably have the same results, and it's cheaper). I bought this due to all the rave reviews, and …Read more

Mascara - SHISEIDO - Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus

Dec/27/2009

I can never catch a break with mascaras, so I'm giving this one a high score. I have short, straight Asian lashes, and this mascara certainly lengthens them and holds a curl. Really, that's all that I ask for, after all the disappointment I've gone through with many types of mascaras. The double-sided wand is kind of useless, so you just have to be careful when applying so that you …Read more
