Treatments (Eye) - Lancôme - R'Energie Eye

I actually like this product, but first let me just say that I am 25 and Asian, so when I use this I see no noticeable results. My skin still looks like it did when I was 19 and I use this for preventative reasons. When applying at night and waking up in the morning, my under-eyes are very soft and moisturized. That's about the only effect I notice.

Treatments (Eye) - Kiehl's - Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

This product is weird. I finished my Lancome sample of eye cream and decided to buy a cheaper substitute. Saw the reviews on this and thought I'd give it a try. Looks nice and creamy but when applied under the eyes, it turns watery. I'd like something thicker in texture for night. Will probably shell out the $ for Lancome again.

Foundations - Burberry - Sheer Foundation

Wanted this foundation to work, but wasn't quite where I wanted it. I was initially at Nordstrom looking at Chanel products when someone from the Burberry counter snatched me away and gave me a sample of Trench No. 4 (I am Mac NC25/Chanel B20/Laura Mercier TM in Nude). When I applied it, it is a little thicker but applies very nicely to the skin. I really liked it. But a few hours later, I …Read more

Hair Styling Tools - Goody - Spin Pin

I couldn't believe the amount of people who would buy this again! Ok, so this will work if you have the right hair type/texture/length. But unfortunately on me, it does not work. I have long, layered, silky, normal to thick hair and this doesn't keep my hair up. If I use these spin pins, this is what I do: put hair up in a ponytail with an elastic, twist hair into bun, insert spin pins …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Everyday Minerals - New Flat Top Brush

5.0

Sep/06/2011

I have an older brush but I will put my review here since there doesn't seem to be an old flat top brush review page. Well, I got this brush back in 2009 along with my 5 free samples of mineral powder. I must say that since 2 years ago, with constant washing of this brush every 2 weeks, it has barely shed at all- maybe 1 synthetic hair coming out every month, if even that. It's held up …Read more

Polishes - Butter London - All Hail the Queen

I love this polish! This color was my second purchase from butter London (Victoriana was the first) and I love the neutral/beige color with the sparkly-ness in it. Under indoor lighting and natural shade, you can see it's packed with shimmery goodness. But under the sun, it is so beautifully holographic. It won't give off a rainbow prism like other holos like China Glaze OMG or …Read more

Shampoo - Aussie - Miracle Moist Shampoo

Here's a little background on my hair first: never been bleached or colored, styling tools rarely used (once every few months), no product used except shampoo and conditioner. Pros: very nice, mild tropical/coconut smell that lasted till the next day. Cons: felt drying to my roots, would not lather with my thick thick thick hair so I ended up using almost a palmful of this shampoo.
I …

Fragrances - CHANEL - Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum Intense

I'm not a big fan of using perfume, but I was open to getting one so today at Macy's I *lightly* sprayed once on my wrist and gently dabbed onto the other. WOW what a strong scent that will last. I put a rating of 3 as default since I'm not an expert on fragrance and can't tell apart ones that are good from those that are really good. But, if you are looking for a loooong …Read more

Hair Styling Tools - Sonia Kashuk - Bristle Hair Brush

4.0

Nov/17/2010

I have the "special" gold edition of this boar bristle brush that I got from Target (nothing special, handle just painted gold color). I've had this brush for a year now, since I bought it around Christmas. So I've never had a MP brush, but decided to test out boar bristle brushes with something cheaper before shelling out more money for the real deal. Compared to my cheap …Read more

Oct/23/2010

When I first saw swatches online, I was on the fence. But after I saw the color in person, AND the saleswoman convincingly told me I had the last one left in northern CA (unlikely), I bought it but don't for a minute regret it. Application is a dream, better than some of my other Chanel polishes. You could get away with one coat, but I like 2 just to be on the safe side. The brush is so easy …Read more
