Nov/20/2016

I've now used up half a bottle, applying it 2-3 times per week all over my face, alternating between day and night application, and always layer on a moisturizer on top. I purchased it to address fine lines and minor brown spots, in hopes of brightening and smoothening my overall complexion, as was the product's promise. However, I have seen no results whatsoever, and I mean none. If …Read more

Jan/01/2016

I have this in Midnight Blue and was blown away upon application. It actually created and held a curl (without use of lash curler), while adding mass to my sparse flat lashes which barely show up sans mascara. 4 stars rather than 5 only because it's not waterproof, and did smudge a bit by day's end. That notwithstanding, it's a mascara I'm excited about, and look forward to …Read more

I bought this for the ceramide, on recommendations that this moisturizer works just as well as Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin cream. Having now dutifully gone through half a full-size jar: how wrong I was. Not only did it fail to make my face appear any more smooth or glowing -- it turned my skin blotchy and constantly irritated my eyes. Moreover, later in the day it transforms into strange fuzzy layer …Read more

I have sensitive skin on the dry side and am about half way through the full-size bottle of this cleanser. I like its gentle cleansing power, but must use it quite sparingly in amount and frequency: less than half a dime's worth, every other day, at most. Otherwise it dries me out. The scent is pleasant, like lychees.

Jun/24/2015

Having now used up more than half of my 8 oz. bottle, I can say that this has become my go-to gentle moisturizer, for when my skin feels especially sensitive and I just want something light, breathable, and clean-feeling. It's a lotion with fairly conservative ingredients -- colloidal oatmeal is first in the ingredients list -- and a slightly runny consistency. I find that it protects …Read more

I badly need concealer for my dark undereyes but have been unlucky with concealers as a product category, even higher-end products like Lancome Effacernes. Somehow they always a) cake or b) are either too bright or too sallow on me, either way revealing that I'm wearing concealer. But I'm really taken with this Stila concealer. I bought the shade "Bare" in the standalone …Read more

BB Cream - Unlisted Brand - HANYUL Luminant Cushion SPF 50+

Jun/23/2015

I've been using this everyday for a week now in shade #23 (natural beige) in the peach-colored compact, which just came out this spring. The Hanyul Luminant cushion had been on my shopping list for some time due to positive reviews from several bloggers I trust, but when I finally moved to buy, the much-praised earlier version in the milky white compact had just been discontinued. I decided …Read more

Cleansers - The Face Shop - Rice Water Bright Cleansing Light Oil

Jun/23/2015

I purchased this much-praised oil for a specific purpose: to remove my stubborn summer layers of high-SPF sunscreen plus foundation. The cleansing power is effective for those products, but it does not fully remove eye makeup. Moreover, it is strongly perfumed, not just lightly scented -- and the scent lingers and lingers, depressing me in the reminder that unnecessary chemicals are touching my …Read more

Jun/23/2015

I got the Soft Lip Color lipstick in Bashful from Hautelook and love its moisturizing feel and creamy look on my lips -- and for that alone I'd repurchase. However, I would have preferred to have picked a more colorful color. This shade is "nuder" than my own pinkish nude lips -- I need to put together a slightly more artistic nude-lip look (rather than just natural everyday …Read more

I've had a hard time locating any info on this brand: web searches suggest it's a line from Isaac Mizrahi, but apart from Hautelook there doesn't seem to be any major merchandiser that stocks it. Nonetheless, going by the few positive reviews on MUA plus one Youtube review, I bought three of their lip products from Hautelook recently, including this Pure Lip Color lipstick in …Read more
