Skinfood Powders: Red Orange Sun Pact SPF50+ & Seaweed Shining Bronzer Pact Review and Swatches

Skinfood-Powders_-Red-Orange-Sun-Pact-SPF50+-Seaweed-Shining-Bronzer.jpg

It’s nearly summer – although you can’t tell from the RAIN outside.  My skin is still as dry as anything but as it warms up, I find more and more use for pretty powders.  I purchased 2 powders from Skinfood a while ago but have only just had the chance to open them to give them a go! They are both sunny themed – one is a bronzer (pretty rare where Korean or indeed Asian […]

Diorskin Nude Haul: Crystal Nude Natural Matte Skin Perfecter, Natural Glow Creme-Gel Makeup and Natural Glow Hydrating Make Up Review

Diorskin-Crystal-Nude-foundation.jpg

I actually hauled this about 3 months ago when I was feeling saucy (although admittedly my attempts at ‘Frugal April’ have been some what thwarted by my renewed addition to Chai Tea Lattes, my hunt for summer dresses because there were 2 WHOLE sunny days and fresh addiction to Jill Stuart make up). Side note: Speaking of Jill Stuart – any ladies ordered from Hong Kong lately? Because I have a ton of packages that […]

Fairy Drops Mineral Powder Vanilla Puff Gold Bronzer Review

Fairy-Drops-Tokyo-Bronzer-Puff.jpg

Everyone knows that Fairy Drops makes fierce mascara with the funny brush but did you know they also have a range of lip glosses and powders?! Neither did I! (What you did? Shush). Fairy Drops Vanilla Puff powders come in these annoying pot things where you tap it to get the product to travel through to the puff. These are supposed to be handy, I find them damn annoying and bulky. Anyway here it is […]

Light as air! B&C Labs Candy Floss Facial Top Coat Powder Review

Clear-Last-Floss-Powder-Top-Coat-Powder.jpg

B&C is another Japanese company that I really like – they have so many interesting sub brands and make a lot of innovative beauty products. Clear Last is a range of theirs that makes a lot of base products such as primers and powders. I purchased their Clear Floss Powder because the name reminded me of Candy Floss: This powder is a top coat powder and interestingly doesn’t contain any talc. It works particularly well […]

Majolica Majorca Pressed Pore Cover Powder in 2011 LE Sugary Trap Case Review

Majolica-Majorca-Pressed-Powder-Invisible-Pore-Cover.jpg

I haven’t bought Majolica Majorca in a long time; their products are quite average for me despite being packaged so beautifully, but I couldn’t resist this gorgeous limited edition Sugary Trap collection and this pale green compact which houses the Pressed Pore Cover Powder. They say: Reveal soft white, translucent powder that minimises enlarged pores to give skin a flawless and polished finish. Using the flocked sponge, apply Pressed Pore Cover Powder on nose, cheeks […]

Benefit Hello Flawless SPF 15 Custom Powder Cover Up Foundation Review

Benefit-Hello-Flawless.jpg

So I have been testing out loads of stuff from Benefit lately – I guess it’s been nice rediscovering things I’ve heard of from other people (both positive and negative). Next up is Hello Flawless – oh yes, I love my base products! They say: This silky powder cover-up glides on naturally sheer and layers beautifully for customized coverage with SPF protection. Complete with brush and sponge and dual application lesson. This product is supposed […]

Aube Couture Designing Highlight Under Eye Setting Powder Review

Aube-Couture-Designing-HIghlight-.jpg

Sofina’s Aube Couture is what I’d call an elegant brand – it looks chic, the range is chic, the colours are chic. For that reason I also find it a little dull and expensive. Shiseido’s MAQUillage is expensive and chic but more exciting than Aube Couture. Having said that I will still buy odd things from the brand and one item I had been mulling over because it was pretty expensive (with the exchange rate!) […]

Chacott Finishing Powder Review; The best selling loose powder in Japan

Chacott-for-professionals-finishing-powder.jpg

Chacott for Professionals Finishing Powder, I have heard, is the best selling loose powder in Japan and is a range originally made for dancers and stage performers. Not that I am a stage performer, but I do find that my make up slides off by mid day quite often. This powder is sweat proof, water proof, long lasting. It comes in 2 sizes and the larger size (which I bought) is gigantic at 170grams! God […]
