I bought this item off taiwan website via my friend, this item cost NT499.
Comes in 3 steps application,
1: Deep Sebum Softener /20ml
2: Sebum Purifying Mask / 40g
3: Pore Treatment Essence / 20ml
I tested this last sat,
This softener suppose to soften ur sebum before removing them as they are pretty stubborn and always refuse to give way. After applying, feel slight warm sensation, probably its using the heat to expand the pore so it can be remove easily. Instructions says, i have to massage for 2-3 mins before rinsing off.
Apply straight after dapping dry ur face area and apply it, thick enough that you cant see your pores or skin. Thats what it says. Wait for 20-25 mins (its long but worth, read on) After its completely dry peel off from bottom, which is like de-rooting the sebum. It works on sebum but not on blackheads...
Skin feel so raw as facial hair are remove as well, but this item do not calm my skin. Probably like what it indicates for pore treatment (minimize pore?) I couldnt bear with the itch on my cheek & nose area so use my daily moisturiser to put out the fire.
Conclusion, i love this item for now, its effective in remove sebum. But i still in need solution for my blackheads!

Lips get a pretty, beach-ready finish with this creamy gloss. 0.49 oz. net wt.
The warm shades and subtle shimmer of these glosses really give you that 'just-back-from-vacation' glow.
I love creme color as they are great for everday wear & hard to recognize wear off. This color is available in 8ty8beauty, China Glaze BLUSH collection.
I had never use their product before, 1st time trying not bad, just the solution a bit more sticky rather than liquid like compare with OPI. the color suppose to be french creme with very fine shimmer. above pic, i applied 4 coats as i didn't do a nice job so the uneven stroke are visible, therefore forcing me to hide it by applying another coat. the color is sort of peachy creme for 4 coat, but the color suppose to be a bit translucent shimmers creme. Very easy to apply, goes very smoothly but for inexperience newbie like me, surely needs more practice... Cya next wk!
This description above is really true about the product. I swear by this top coat, its thick, glossy and lasting. My best record for now, is to have unchip polish for 10 days. Not even tip wear, you can imagine how good it is, simply too value for $$. It claim to take 5 mins to dry polish to touch & 10 mins is all it takes for polish to dry completely. I ever tried to change bedsheet 30 mins after applying this top coat to my polish.
I bought this when i was a newbie as i need a base & top coat. So i thought how good it will be to have both function in 1 bottle. Save my space for another polish buy. So i bought this off ebay, fast drying as a base coat, BUT i would give 1 out of 5 for top coat. As there is no shine, lotsa bubbles. My nails look terribly ugly, like they were done using cheap polish.
OMG, its one of my worse buy.In order not to waste it, i'm using it as a base coat. At least put it into use than disposing it right.I will take a pic next round on it being used as top coat so that you will know what i saying.
If i'm not wrong its rating in Makeup Alley is also quite disappointed.http://makeupalley.com/product/showreview.asp/ItemId=21272/Start_to_Finish_Base_&_Top_Coat/OPI/Top/Base_Coats
She packs the polish nicely & very carefully. If you can't wait like me, get your polish from her at reasonable price...
This is one of my latest collection, Room Service from OPI soft shade collection.Its purplish, touch of lilac, giving sheer gloss, i applied 2 coat and you can still see my nail white. The color was not so purplish as i thought it would but good for sheer, light look.In fact, applying this color makes skin tone fairer..

By having this blog, hope that i would be able to remember the glamorous moments of it. Hopefully , i can provide reviews for those who wish to own it. As me too, always try to look for review before purchase, but there is something call impluse buying, which leave me with no extra time to do rational thinking like SALES!!! I hate & love it, hate it for not letting me to really think if i should really own it & love it for letting me to secure my lovely piece at such a pretty tag.
Just a short description of myself, i'm a mother of two, juggling between work, family & my beauty obession and a impluse buyer who cannot stand the word SALES!!
