They just make amazing products!!)

It is such a great palette, the texture is amazing. It’s so soft – and glowing, my skin looks radiant!  I mix and match, depending on what I’m wearing. They are terrific! Trust me!

A total dud… Komenuka Bijin’s Makeup Remover

I tried this product, based on this review below:

Product Description
All-Natural and fragrance-free, Komenuka Bijin’s Makeup Remover gently removes makeup and cleans pores. Vitamins A, B1, and B2 rejuvenate your skin while removing makeup, and aloe helps make your skin truly healthy.Fragrance-free, Komenuka Bijin’s Makeup Remover gently removes makeup and cleans pores. Vitamins A, B1, and B2 rejuvenate your skin while removing makeup, and aloe helps make your skin truly healthy. If you’re looking for a safe, all-natural, and effective anti-aging regimen you’ve found it in rice bran – a centuries old beauty regimen and the secret of the ageless Japanese complexion.

Benefit from the miracle that’s been around for centuries!

The Japanese have known for generations that the potent vitamins and antioxidants in rice cleanse, tone, tighten, and regenerate softer and suppler skin. Now it’s available in a highly concentrated unscented formula, along with other pure and all natural ingredients. No other product are available, at any price, with such a high amount of potent ingredients and no chemicals or artificial fillers. You’ll use less and see visible results sooner than other more expensive products.

TrueRenu does the searching – and researching – for you. We look for hard to find, hard working products that do what they promise, and we bring them to you with detailed descriptions. We like Komenuka Bijin for its high amounts of antioxidant rich rice bran, and other natural ingredients. Because the active ingredient is so dominant, you’ll see the benefits sooner – and use less.

Product Size: Net Weight: 100g, or about 3.5 ounces.

But let me tell you, I thought this product STUNK. It’s a makeup remover, shouldn’t it remove makeup? I wear black eyeliner at times, and this remover wouldn’t remove the liner. It left me with makeup still on my face, and I was extremely frustrated. The two times I tried this product, I had to finish with another face wash – just to get the eye makeup off! Not to mention this product left a slimy film on my face. It wasn’t a good product at all, and I’m not going to tell you where you can buy it – cause it costs $36! If you’re looking for a makeup remover like I was – stick with the always amazing Lancome’s Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover.

Hot new mascara from Laura Geller! Full Figured Lashes Mascara!

laura_geller_full_figured.jpg

Bigger is better. This volumizing mascara magnifies and extends lashes by combining two lengths of nylon fibers in a creamy, water-resistant formula. Cellulose and amino acids work to strengthen lashes, while rice protein adds shine. Vitamin-rich ingredients help maintain hydration while preventing damage, so your lashes look luscious day after day. Ophthalmologist-tested, the formula is suitable for contact lens wearers. From Laura Geller.

See our other Laura Geller reviews!

I love this mascara, and I’m a tough critic. I dismiss most mascaras, because I’m extremely picky. I am especially tough on the brushes, a brush is the most crucial part of mascara, if you ask me. And I really love this brush, I love the mascara itself, I love how easily it goes on, and how easily it comes off. It looks and feels like a million bucks!

Also – not that it reeeally matters, but I love the look of the tube! It fits in the hand just perfectly, and I love the shape of the handle! Awesome! All around – two thumbs up!!!

New from Urban Decay Ink for Eyes

urban-decay.jpg

I am a sucker for cream eyeliner, the great look of liquid but a little easier to use for people without perfect precision like myself. Can’t wait to try the new Ink for Eyes from Urban Decay, I am in love  with the Loaded and Pyrotechnics colors.

Urban Decay Ink for Eyes
What it is:
A cream eye liner housed in a long, sexy case—complete with mirror, brush, and smudger.

What it does:
It’s everything you want in a cream eye liner: more precision than a pencil but more forgiving than a liquid. This ultra-creamy, paraben-free formula offers more control, play time, and buildable coverage. Create razor-sharp lines or smoky bedroom eyes with the double-ended angled liner brush and smudger. The secret ingredient? Nylon 12, a unique ingredient that decreases drag, creates a flawless application experience by eliminating skips or smears and also softening and absorbing excess oil. This creamy eye liner is available in a wide variety of sexy shades that stay put all day long.

What else you need to know:
Decorated with a hand-illustrated peacock, the long, lean case (complete with mirror!) is ideal for applying color with the angled liner brush.
