Maqpro Le Maquillage Make up mixer from PAM!

PAM-Make-Up-Mixer-.jpg

I purchased this Make up mixer after my make up lesson at The Session School with Dani Guinsberg. Dani mixed this with some mineral make up from Bellapierre and made the most amazing, amazing base, ever. Good for my delicate skin, excellent coverage, and glowy. Now, I went down to PAM to buy the Make […]

No-7-Vintage-Loves-Eye-Palette-Group.jpg

Boots No. 17 seems to have been rather creative this time round for Spring because I found myself lusting after a few of the items, so I thought I’d share the images with you. Launched on the 28th of January 2011 is the Vintage Loves collection, which has these two pretty eyeshadow palettes (Limited Edition) […]

Bourjois Bio Detox Organic Foundation Review

Bourjois-Bio-Detox-Organic-Foundation-.jpg

I generally quite like Bourjois foundations – matte mousse is decent and 10 Hour Sleep Effect is ok if you have nice skin to begin with. So I was interested to try Bourjois Bio Detox Organic Foundation, their newest addition to the family. This foundation perfectly evens out the complexion, minimizing pores’ appearance and concealing […]

Kanebo Coffret D’or Silk Cream Foundation Review

Silk-Cream-Foundation FACE  LINEUP  COFFRET-D_OR  Kanebo-COSMETICS.jpg

Whenever I’ve tried Japanese or Korean foundation products, I’ve been fairly happy with the results but not with the colouring (I am NC35 and I find most foundation products too light for me). I took a risk when I ordered Coffret D’or’s newest foundation, Silk Cream (SPF21) because it looks just like ‘my’ kind of […]

Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream in Golden Beige SPF42 No. 31: A BB Cream for darker skins?

Official-Missha-Website-Perfect-Cover-1.jpg

Ladies, ladies, us NC35-NC40 -ers have been waiting a long time for this one. In my endless search for a BB cream that suits my skin and suits my olive skintone, I have spend many pennies, and even when a formula has been good I’ve had to dismiss the product for being far to pale. […]

Be happy with the power of mineral! Integrate mineral Powder Foundation and Primer Review

Integrate-be-happy-with-the-power-of-mineral-foundation-and-mineral.jpg

I think I’ve mentioned before that my relationship with Integrate is so-so. Some of the products are excellent, some are below average. I was rather pleased to try out the Integrate Powder Foundation and Primer (both purchased from Adambeauty.com – my favourite online make up store in the world). It’s nice to see a Japanese […]

Anti Aging Foundation: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Radiant Firming Make Up Review

Maybelline-Instant-Age-Rewind-Radiant-firming-make-up-foundation.jpg

In my never ending search for the perfect foundation, I bought this Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Radiant Firming Make Up to review. I don’t generally speaking trust drugstore make up with their colouring; too pink or beige I usually find but I took the plunge! What does this foundation do? * Smoothes and evens skin […]

The Best Foundations, Candy Style: No. 5: KATE High Coverage Foundation

Kate-High-Coverage-Liquid-Foundation-.jpg

This week I am reviewing my 5 current favourite foundations! Last but not least to my 5 favourite foundations of the moment is this little gem from KATE (a baby brand of Kanebo Japan). KATE does not look as pretty as Lavshuca, but it does produce less fluffy, more useful products, in my opinion. KATE […]

The Best Foundations, Candy Style: No. 4 Albion Exage Moisture Chiffon Powder Foundation

Albion-Exage-Powder-Foundation-.jpg

This week I am reviewing my 5 current favourite foundations! Powder foundations are very popular in Asia because they suit the kind of climate over there – when it’s hot and humid, a powder base will stay put for longer, and it’s easier to top up. For me, I love the idea of a powder […]

The Best Foundations, Candy Style: No 2: Dior Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Foundation SPF 15

Diorskin-Nude-Foundation-.jpg

This week I am reviewing my 5 current favourite foundations! Dior make excellent foundation, seriously, and if I am fair, I think I have more luck with their base range than I do with other high end counter brands. Diorskin Nude is a mixture of mineral pigments with mineralized water – it’s supposed to improve […]

The Best Foundations, Candy Style: No. 1: RMK Creamy Foundation SPF 15

RMK-Creamy-Foundation.jpg

This week I am reviewing my 5 current favourite foundations! I’ll begin this series with one of my favourite foundations, ever. RMK Creamy Foundation (there is also a liquid version) has a cream/gel texture and medium coverage. The first time I used this foundation, I was amazed by how easy it was to blend it […]

Changing Colour: What shade of foundation are you? Really?

Cat-colours.jpg

So I was in MAC again at the weekend and this time I was matched to a NC30 foundation (Mineralized – I really like). The thing is…last time I was matched to a NC40! A good 3 shades darker. Does anyone else have this problem with foundation matching? SA’s generally either choose something too light, […]
