Makeup Brushes - Unlisted Brand - Artis Palm Brush

Oct/27/2017

I'm always looking for new tools to apply foundation evenly and effortlessly, simply because I enjoy the process and I get dorky with things I like. I also like my brush to preserve the coverage of a foundation to the maximum extent so that I can save as much product as possible. I was already in love with the Oval 7 brush from Artis' Elite collection, so when they released this brush …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Unlisted Brand - Artis Elite Mirror Oval 7 Brush

Mar/28/2017

Being a brush nerd, I jumped onto the wagon when the Artis brushes first came to the market. I simply wondered how putting the brush head on the side could change the makeup application process, especially give that there are already so many exceptional choices of "traditional" makeup brushes on the market.

I bought the Artis Influenta oval 6 brush back then, but I …

Skincare - Face - Elizabeth Arden - Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum

Dec/20/2016

Living in Michigan, I face the same struggle with my skin every winter--dryness. I don't have dry skin to start with. My cheeks are normal and my T-zone is oily. But my skin is sensitive, in the sense that it's prone to break out in the jawline area (which many sources say is due to unbalanced hormone) and I have rosacea on my nose and around my cheek bones. This combination makes my …Read more

I've never heard of this brand before. I was doing some random swaps at Ulta and was impressed by the texture of the foundation, so I picked it up. I have NC20 skin and the color 3 matches me very well.

I have to say that this is by far the foundation that I am the most satisfied with. This foundation delivers all I ask for from a matte foundation, or any foundation …

Fragrances - CHANEL - No.5 Parfum

Jun/01/2016

I clearly remember smelling this perfume when I was in my early 20s. Back then I thought, "what the heck is so great about it that makes it so pricey". I guess complex perfume is also an acquired taste.

There are different versions of the Chanel No.5 perfume, and this review is specifically about the classic EAU DE PARFUM version. I smelled all versions in the shop. Only this …

Blush - TOM FORD - Cheek Color 03 Flush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/30/2015

I guess when people see a blush that retails for $57 the first question they would ask is it is worth it. I had the same question. One of the reviews I read said that the quality of Tom Ford's blush wasn't that much different from Burberry's so maybe Burberry could be a cheaper alternative. I have Burberry's blush in peony and Tom Ford's in flush and frantic pink. In my …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Bobbi Brown - Full Coverage Face Brush

Mar/11/2015

I own many many foundation brushes because I'm such a brush nerd and I like to see how different brushes perform with different foundation formula. I have to say this is one of softest foundation brushes that I own, if not THE softest. With its tapered round top, this brush is best for a swirling motion. It feels like heaven when you use this brush to buff in foundation. What is also lovely …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Dior - professional finish fluid foundation brush high coverage no 12

Mar/11/2015

Before I had this brush, my HG foundation brush is the shiseido perfect foundation brush. I have to say that I might like this slightly more than my shiseido one. There are several reasons for this. First, the bristles on the shiseido brush is more dense and softer than the bristles on this one. But because this one has slightly less dense and more stiff bristles, it does not sheer out the …Read more

Liquid - Dior - DIORSKIN STAR

I had high hopes for this foundation. Typically we don't see a foundation being marketed as being luminous as well as long-lasting. I have oily combination skin, but I prefer my foundation to have that real-skin dewy finish, so naturally their marketing message caught my eye.

I am a mac NC20, and I got the foundation in the shade 020. I find the color way too beigy for me. (021 …

I have acne prone skin with an oily T-zone, large pores on and around my nose. I am NC20 in MAC and I have this BB cream in the color No. 2. I have tried numerous BB creams (e.g., Missha, BRTC, Skin79, Dr. Jart...), but I seldom find one that addresses all my needs. I very much like this one. What I appreciate the most about this one are: 1) it makes your skin appear smoother, even more so than …Read more
