Irene commented on the post, What color lipstick do you reach for most often? 5 days, 15 hours ago

Reds! I don’t wear lipstick everyday, but even my lipbalm is a sheer red. It looks the most flattering against my very fair skintone!

Irene commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Finishing Powders 1 week, 4 days ago

I had never used a finishing powder (just regular pressed translucent powder) until I bought the NARS Light Reflecting Loose Powder, and it’s my favorite make-up product ever! It didn’t work so well until I […]

I’m also very oily, and I do use the NARS Light Reflecting Loose Powder, however I use it differently than the way Lotus recommends. On my skin, using a powder brush gave a very meh look, not at all the […]

I don’t wear it underneath, but I usually apply lipbalm before doing my make up and then, right before putting lipstick on, I’ll take the lipbalm off with a q-tip and some make-up remover. This way I can […]

I definitely can’t, but whenever I wear MAC Ruby Woo lipstick a lot of people (who don’t know me!) know right away what lipstick it is and will compliment on it. Then again, Ruby Woo is very special -extremely […]

Although I do agree that Rihanna x MAC is getting kinda tiring, I’m sad I was never able to get Riri Woo :(

I have pretty bad skin with mild rosacea and seb dermatitis, so taking off my make-up before bed has always been extremely important to prevent breakouts! I can count with one hand the times I haven’t done it, […]

I’ve been extremely curious about how Ruby Woo compares to Riri Woo, but I never manage to get a tube of the latter! Would love to try it out.

I’d wear a combination of the pinks as a nude eye, and pair it with black liner and a red lip!

Skin79 Orange Vital is the most yellow toned bb cream I own, and it might work for you, though it could be a little pale. Skin79 does make other yellow toned bb creams, so you could look up some reviews!

I have incredibly dark under eye circles, and I find Benefit Lemonaid works great to counteract the purple in them. Just a little bit of product will brighten the area, and then I can use less concealer on top. My […]

Biore Aqua Rich Essence SPF50 is my holy grail sunscreen! Absorbs in like a minute and leaves a matte finish It’s pretty cheap, but as it’s Japanese you’d have to get it on eBay, Sasa, o some other online store.

Kiara, I actually have seborrheic dermatitis, which means my skin is oily and acne-prone with dry flaky patches :( I currently use the SkinMD Natural Shielding Lotion, which absorbs like a dream and it’s hydrating […]

Most of the reviews on the Paula’s Choice database of products that aren’t from their own line just seem very unfair and biased to me, though. Like, they almost literally said my favorite scrub from Clinique is […]

I haven’t, although I’ve heard it looks great! It can only be mixed with other shades of MAC Face And Body foundation because of its formulation though, so I’d have to get some samples first before buying two […]

Thank you Eliz! I’ll see if I can find it somewhere in NYC to try it out.

That’s the one I currently use! Heard about it in one of Lisa Eldridge’s videos :D Unfortunately, it does have a tendency to make flaky skin more noticeable, so I’m on the hunt for one that doesn’t. I’m curious […]

A moisturizer that doesn’t make me greasy, absorbs fast into the skin, and doesn’t break out my skin, yet is hydrating enough. Also, white foundation that doesn’t look cracked/dry around my flaky skin due to […]
