Great oil controlling powder. Bought it in South Korea for a very low price. I tend to get oily quickly, but this powder keeps the oils at bay for around six hours. Afterwards I do have to blot. But it's better than any powder I've tried. Packaging is small, but five gram of powder lasts me around four months. It does leave a white cast though, so don't use it for flash …Read more

Sunscreen - Bioré - UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel SPF50+ PA++++

I've always used the Biore watery essence and really liked it. Recently I saw that Biore came out with the 2017 waterproof version, so decided to try it out. I thought that a waterproof and sweat proof sunscreen would be great for work outs or holidays. Because the gel is cheaper than the essence, I opted for the gel this time. The product applied very easily. It's more sticky than the …Read more

BB Cream - LANEIGE - BB Cushion Whitening SPF 50 PA

I bought this whitening cusion in the holiday edition and it's the most beautiful packaging ever! I bought shade 21, which is a close match to my NC 20-25 skintone, but it is a tiny bit too light. This cushion makes my skin look really healthy and dewy, which I like. Coverage is light/medium but buildable without looking cakey. However, this cusion is not very long wearing and after 4 hours …Read more

Mascara - Max Factor - 2000 Calorie Waterproof Volume Mascara

Jun/06/2017

Bought this mascara because it was on sale and used it for a couple weeks. I noticed that this mascara weighs down my lashes and doesn't hold the curl well. Which is really bad since most waterproof mascaras are able to hold the curl, that's also the reason why I buy waterproof mascaras! This mascara doesn't seem to do a great job on adding volume or lenghtening my lashes either …Read more

Wow this stuff really works! Normally I would use Retin-A if I have cystic acne, but in the winter it is too drying. So recently I bought this buffering lotion, and it shrunk down my acne within two days! It doesn't leave my skin flaky and it can be worn under make up. I just put a small amount in the palm of my hand and rub it into the inflamed areas, works great! The packaging however is …Read more

I really love this foundation. The color match is perfect for my asian skin. I'm using the shade 53 Light Beige, which is between NC25 and NC30. However, MAC is very orange, and Bourjois has more yellow undertones, which is great. The coverage is medium and buildable with a natural looking matte finish. With a primer and a finishing powder, this foundation still looks fine after an 8 hour …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Gel Exfoliant

This BHA gel actually made many of my blackheads disappear! I've used the liquid in the past, but really didn't like the runny texture and the stickiness of the product. So I ended up giving the bottle to my sister.
The gel however takes about 5 minutes to absorb, so even when I'm in a rush in the morning I can use it. I use it once in the morning and once in the evening …

Foundations - Bourjois - 123 Perfect CC Cream

Sep/15/2015

I love this product! This CC cream has a medium coverage, is easy to blend and has the perfect color match for my nc25-nc30 skin. I'm using the shade 32 Light Beige. Also, this product is very buildable. So for areas that need a little more coverage, you can just add another layer. I'm using two small drops of CC cream for my whole face, and I think this tube could last me for at least …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Skindinavia - No More Shine Makeup Finish

Sep/15/2015

I really wanted to like this product, but unfortunately this product doesn't live up to its expectations. The spray does nothing for me in terms of oil control, my face gets as oily as it would normally get without a finishing spray. However, the spray does do a wonderful job on making my makeup last longer. But considering the steep price, I would not buy this product again. There are …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - The Body Shop - All-In-One Instablur 5-Action Perfector

I've just started using this product, and so far so good. This primer mattifies my face, but still gives a healthy glow. I personally don't use this product on its own, I use it under my CC cream instead. The blurring effect is apparent both in real life and in pictures; pores are much less visible. The product however is a bit hard to spread, so do remember to blend it out really well …Read more
