Greetings! I am a late bloomer for cosmetics (23, i can handle lipgloss and mascara so far..:shame: ), but have always wonder? Asia cosmetic/skincare(SK II, Kose, Shiseido, DHC etc)brand really works better than other brands (Lancome, Clinque, Chanel, etc) for Asian? Most elder Asian ladies i know of swear by Japanese cosmetic line because the it's 'deisgn by Asian for Asian', and that other major brands' primary target is not Asian, thus it does not address to Asian's skin need. The reason i am asking is because i am in the process of building cosmetic and skincare products, but would like to know if there's really a brand that's good for Asian? So far the products i have are: BE starter kit from Sephora Neutrogina-Facial Cleaner, Weightless Volume WP Mascara Clena&Clear-Toner, oil blotting sheet Aveda-moistrizer w/SPF 15 Kose-Medicated Sekkisei 360ml (it's a hand-over, do i apply before toner, or it's a toner already?) I live in SA, TX, have skin type between comb and oil. Any input is a big help for me! ps. i am still in school and work part time, so budget still is a big factor.
