Naruko Skin Care - Seriously, none of them disappoint me yet. My goal in 2012 - try every Naruko in my stash and review those I like one by one! In the pic: Lupin Anti-Wrinkle Firming Toning Emulsion (newest line from Naruko) + Taiwan Magnolia Brightening and Firming Serum + Raw Job's Tears Whitening Serum (very moisturizing in fact) + Taiwan Magnolia Brightening and Firming Night Cream + Narcissus Moisturizing Dew
Lip Balmsss - A necessity and these are some good ones. In the pic: Bloom Heavenly Lips (peach) + Carmex (the original tube depotted) + Naris Up Lip Care Essence + Haus of Gloi (Sweet Rosa) + Dr. Hauschka Lip Balm
Mascara Combo - Majolica Majorca mascara base and Maybelline Colossal Waterproof UK version. See how the Maybelline perform on its own HERE. These together give me real false-lash-effect. And they are very long-wearing, no flakes, no smudge, no nothing. Adorable on their own and perfect togther. *note: they are more on the lengthening side, not volumizing*
Korean Shampoo - the purple ones are from the brand 呂 (sorry no English name) and the blue set is from Esthaar. Both sets work very well but the smell and texture of the purple one is divine. Sounds ridiculous but I really wish I had hauled back more from Korea! :P
