I got brush #19 and #4, both crease brushes after reading reviews. They're handmade in Japan, and aren't cheap- the 2 brushes cost me almost $50. But wow! These brushes work like nobody's business, and are extremely soft. I was using a MAC 217 to blend my crease, but I found it wasn't doing a great job, was kinda scratchy and I saw hairs falling out. The Wayne Goss brushes are …Read more

Haven't played that much with the shadows yet, but I will say what I've noticed so far is very pigmented and easy to blend. I used a Wayne Goss brush and a good quality brush does make a difference, but still very impressed with these eyeshadows.

I like that you can pick the colors you want, the shade range is great, you can find them in Macy's (yay!) and at $6 for the …

I love this tinted moisturizer! The other reviewers are right, this is more like a foundation than a tinted moisturizer- gives great coverage with very little product, wears well on me and light beige matches my skin tone well. I would definitely wear moisturizer underneath it, unless you are oily.
The price is very expensive, about the same as a high end foundation, but I like it better …

I wanted to try this product after seeing all the glowing reviews here, but bc in the States you can't go in anywhere and find your color, I gave up. Then, when in London I went into Harrod's and they had a counter there. So I got a good matching color and tried it when I got home.
I also have MUFE's HD foundation, and one day I did a side by side comparision- MUFE on one …

This cream is very rich. I use it on my hands to moisturize them, and it does a very good job of that. I like the smell; it's kind of citrusy, not too girly. I've had guys use it who normally won't use scented hand cream bc most of them smell too girly. It's more of a clean smell.
It takes a while to soak in, but it doesn't get on clothes. I don't use it on my …

I love the consistency of this product. It must be the silicones, but it's got a great smooth feel, not like a traditional sunscreen, more like a mousse as one reviewer said, but a bit more substantial. The tint is a nice touch for my medium asian skin, though I still need to wear foundation to cover acne scars/blemishes. I like that it's a mineral sunscreen as well, and doesn't …Read more

I bought this product after reading about it on the TurthinAging website. It's got sunscreen, moisturizers, anti aging ingredients and you can get it in a sheer color to boot. There's a lipstick like formulation and a gloss formulation.

I got both the lipstick and gloss, both in sheer ruby. The color is a sheer reddish color, hard to describe, but worked well with my dark …

I bought this after reading all the good reviews on this website. I put the powder into my palm and add a little water and work into a paste, then apply onto my nose, chin, cheeks and forehead, mostly the middle of my face.
I have to say, it works! My acne is mostly keep in check by regular facials, but this really helps to keep blackheads on my nose to a minimum in between facials. I used …

I was using Bare Minerals for years, but lately noticed it was actually accentuating my large pores (esp on my nose) and even buffed it, it still looked like I had powder on my face. So I decided to try a liquid. I wanted to try Shu Uemura Face Architect, but since you can't go anywhere to check out colors, and can only order online, I ruled that one out.
The salesperson at Sephora …

Jul/07/2009

I actually like this product a lot, it cleaned really well but left my skin really soft, and didn't make my t-zone produce more oil like other harsher cleanser would. The problem I noticed is that I started getting little bumps on my cheeks...not like acne, although I'm acne prone, but just weird bumps under the surface of my skin. I don't actually know if it was the cleansing oil …Read more
