Beautiful Asian Raw Natural Beauty

Makeup Reviews: Raw Minerals Foundation

raw_minerals_foundation reviewI’ve finally jumped on the mineral makeup bandwagon: my favorite base of the moment is Raw Natural Beauty RAWMinerals Foundation and its companion, the maximum coverage foundation brush.

I got the foundation in Medium 1, and surprisingly, it matched my skin really well. I’m usually in the pale ivory whitest-of-the-white category, but not this time ( I can thank all my use of Jergens Natural Glow Moisturizer for that).

MAC Cosmetics Paint Pot Review

Makeup Reviews: MAC Cosmetics Paint Pot

MAC Cosmetics Paint Pot ReviewOne of the most iconic makeup products is also one of my favorite components to my daily beauty routine: the MAC Paint Pot. The product can be used either for pigment, or for priming the eyelids before application of eyeshadow; I use it most often for the second instance, and it works wonders. I have mine in Painterly, a creamy nude beige color, but they are also available in a wide variety of other colors, both pearly and matte.

The paint pot intensifies the color of your shadows, making them vibrant and true. Green is really green; blue is really blue.

FHI Nano Weight Pro Turbo Hair Dryer Review

fhi-heat-nano-weight-pro-1900-turbo-blow-dryer-reviewThey say your hair is the first thing people notice about you, and nobody has great hair without great styling tools. I picked up the FHI Heat Nano Weight Pro 1900 Turbo Hair Dryer, and I have to say I’m impressed. Hairdryers aren’t typically too exciting, but this one delivers benefits I didn’t even know I was looking for!

My first surprise came in the Nano Weight Pro 1900 Turbo’s weight – it’s unbelievably light. The hairdryer also features 2 speed settings and 3 temperature settings, making it easy to adjust to your liking. And the power cord is insanely long. This may seem inconsequential, but if you like to dance around the bathroom singing “My Sharona” while you style like I do, it comes in handy for avoiding yanking your brand new hair dryer out of the wall socket.

Makeup Reviews: By Terry Light Expert Foundation

By Terry Light Expert Foundation ReviewTerry de Gunzburg is the creator of Yves Saint Laurent’s superstar Touche Eclat Radiant Touch and founder of the high-end line By Terry. I was lucky enough to try By Terry’s Light Expert Foundation, and I’m happy to report I was impressed.

This product needs a little explanation – basically, the foundation comes with a brush attached (reminiscent of its YSL counterpart). Luckily, if you’re not comfy with applying foundation with a brush you can always use your fingertips. (I tried it in #101 Beige Light, if you’re curious.)

crazy asian mane n tail shampoo and conditioner ad

Review: Mane ‘n Tail Shampoo & Conditioner

Mane and Tail Shampoo ReviewIf you’re among the beauty-concerned, you’ve probably heard claims of the miracle shampoo and conditioner Mane and Tail. Being in the beauty business, I have constant conversation on the topic, and time and time again people have said to me, “If you want your hair to grow fast, use Mane & Tail!” I jump for anything that involves speedy hair growth, so I tried it as soon as I could get my hands on it.

“Isn’t that for horses?” you may be asking yourself. The answer is yes, some people do use Mane & Tail for horses and that was its original use. However, that doesn’t mean it contains any magical, scary horse genes. You won’t start neighing if you use it, trust me – we share many product favorites with horses, including hairbrushes, carrots and sugar cubes.
