Is it perfect? Shiseido Perfect Refining Foundation SPF 15 Review (All Day Flawless Optimal Moisture)

Shiseido-Perfect-Refining-Foundation-SPF-15-review.jpg

I love foundation and I love finding a good foundation because when I have smooth, clear, dewy skin, I can live without any other kind of make up.  I have quite a big collection of foundations now, and I definitely have different uses for each one depending on the finish I want and how my skin is feeling! Shiseido’s Perfect Refining Foundation SPF15 is the newest (although not new!) base from the range.  This is […]

I bow to Shiseido: MAQuillage Lighting White Powdery UV Foundation Review

MAQUillage-Lighting-White-Powdery-UV-Foundation-.jpg

I have a serious foundation problem.  There I said it. I can’t stop hauling foundations; cream, stick, powder, gel… It was MAQUillage’s extremely pretty packaging that made me pay attention to their newest foundation release (and they are always releasing new base products for the different seasons) – Lighting White Powdery UV Foundation. Don’t expect the names of a lot of Japanese beauty products to make perfect sense – sometimes they just don’t. I don’t […]

Shu Uemura Goat Hair Foundation Brush No 18 Review

Shu-Uemura-Goat-Foundation-Brush.jpg

I had my beady eye on the Shu Uemura Goat Hair foundation brush for a long, long time. I finally saw it with a decent discount on eBay and went ahead and purchased the No. 18! This brush is unusual for a foundation brush for so many reasons! It’s a short handle, its a small head, it’s stubby and sort of more of a blusher brush, it has goat hair which is quite rough etc. […]

Shiseido Integrate Be Happy with the power of Mineral Liquid Foundation Review

Shiseido-Integrate-Power-of-Mineral-Foundatio-OC30.jpg

Japanese brands seem to be experimenting more with ‘mineral’ make up and I thought it was rather groovy to see Shisedo’s Integrate brand releasing a liquid mineral foundation! They also do a powder mineral foundation and a mineral base. I’ve tried the powder foundation and found it no different to standard powder foundation in texture. Integrate’s mineral range is curiously called ‘Be happy with the power of Mineral’ (see more silly names here) which may’ve […]

That’s clever: Perfekt Beauty Skin Perfection Gel & Cheek Perfection Gel Review

Per-fekt beauty is a innovative beauty range that has added benefits, like being free of wax, talc and mineral oil (where applicable!). I tried out two of their bestsellers, Skin Perfection Gel & Cheek Perfection Gel. The skin perfecter is an unusual skin enhancing product that is an alternative to foundation, […]

Love in a BB: Rohto Hada-Labo BB Moist Emulsion and Moist Cream SPF50+ Review

BB-Hada-Labo-Cream-SPF50-BB-Cream-BB-Fluid.jpg

I bought two versions of the Hada Labo (who make amazing cheap-ish skincare) BB Moist, purely because I wanted to see what the Japanese interpretation of BB cream was and also because I love their skincare range. On top of this they had a ‘Dark Beige’ shade which a few people told me ran quite dark (nearly all BB Creams I use are too light). I bought the emulsion and cream versions…I do it for […]

Sheer Cover! Elf Studio Tinted Moisturiser SPF 20 Review

Elf-Tinted-Moisturiser-SPF-20.jpg

As it gets warmer and warmer a lot of people downgrade their foundations to tinted moisturisers or sheerer formulas (I have more of these kinds of textures to review soon!). Well if you want to try a cheap and cheerful tinted moisturiser, then ELF Studio’s fairly new product is a good choice. They say: This lightweight and hydrating formula is breathable and provides anti-aging sun protection with UVA/UVB SPF 20. Achieve even skin tone and […]
