  • Skyn Iceland Icelandic Relief Eye Cream

    Skyn Iceland Icelandic Relief Eye Cream

    The Effect is too mild.

    I got the eye cream in the pen packaging. The cream promised a lot. It is supposed to get rid of puffiness, helps with dark circle and firms. It also suppose to have cooling effect upon application but I did not feel it at all. At times I felt a warming sensation. I think it helps with puffiness a little bit but not nearly as potent as I want it to be. I did not notice much change in my dark circles after at least 6 weeks of usage. I still rely on my Clinique All About the Eye concealer to do the trick. Overall, I rather spend my money on effective product.

  • Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Instant Mineral SPF 45

    I got the mineral SPF30 for oily problem skin. I am very satisfied with this product. Most sunscreen make me break out and I hate applying more cream over my moisturizer and makeup. It just gets so messy. Thanks for this powder form sunscreen, I have reapply easily. It has titanium dioxide to block harmful UVA/UVB rays and zinc oxide to treat problem skin. The powder also seems to have a matte finish. My only complain is that i can't tell how much of the powder I put on and sometimes the powder escape and fly everywhere. This might be a problem for people with asthma.

  • Tarte LipSurgence Natural Lip Stain
    8.0

    Tarte LipSurgence Natural Lip Stain

    A bit messy but great effect

    For a long time, I steered clear of lipsticks because I have really dry lips and lipsticks tend to dry out my lips even more. I really dig the bight red lip color trend so I decided to find a product that will give me a vibrant red lip color while keeping my lips moisturized. A staff from Sephora introduced me to the Tarte Lipsurgence Natural Stain. I purchased the color Lust which is the red. It is definitely moisturizing and the color it gives a lovely color. It goes on well. The only thing that bothers me is the staining effect. Because it is a stain, it comes off easily and can get really messy. I recently found red stain all over my light colored clothes. This also means that you might have to reapply the lip stain quite frequently if you want to keep up a high color intensity. It will leave a mark on glasses and cup you drink from. Other than this, I am quite satisfied with the product, I just wish it was less messy. It is a good lipstick for dry lips.

  • Maybelline New York Ultra-Brow Brush-On Color

    It's a great product. It does what it says. The powder goes on smooth, giving my brows a natural appearance. Because I have black eyebrows I use a brown brow gels from MAC in conjunction with this powder. Like many other reviewers, I do find the case flimsy and the brush is too small for a good grasp but it's doable. I don't think it's worth it to drop 30 bucks on your eyebrows, I rather save the money for skincare. So this product is great for me. Taking a point off the packaging.

  • Too Faced Lash Injection
    6.0

    Too Faced Lash Injection

    Ok Masacara, Not worth the price

    I received a sample as a BeautyInsider perk from Sephora. It does lengthen, define and adds a bit of volume. I like it for the fact that it is a relatively dry formula, but that also means it flakes a bit. (I prefer flaking to smudging). The problem I have with this mascara is that it undoes the curling effect of the curler. I have really straight eyelashes to begin with and this mascara makes them long but point straight to the floor. It is definitely not worth the price-tag.

  • Maybelline New York Mineral Power Finishing Veil Pressed Powder

    Prior to applying the finishing veil, I use a tinted moisturizer instead of any kind of foundation because I only need medium coverage and I believe less is more when it comes to things that you put on your face. I am prone to breakouts. So far, I have not experienced breakouts with this products The powder goes on light but actually provide a decent amount of coverage. It gives better coverage than BareMineral's mineral veil. I also use a brush instead of the provided sponge because sponge application can be quite heavy. The powder gives a matte finish which I love. It also absorbs some oil but the oil absorption effect is not as long-lasting as I would like it to be. Overall, for the price, it is a good buy.
