Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation

Bourjois healthy mix serum foundation (CN$27.00 for¬†1 fl oz)¬†is a review that I have been looking forward¬†to write.¬†I picked up this foundation a couple of months ago when I discovered¬†it¬†at¬†Shoppers Drug Mart (a Canadian drugstore chain). Bear in mind to go to bigger drugstore if you are looking since smaller store doesn’t carry¬†Bourjois or¬†Stilla or higher end brands. Oh yes, Bourjois is a french makeup company with some distributions in Canada and also in Europe and Asia.

They have six color shades to choose from and I got mine in No. 55 (Dark beige). Perfect color shade for my skin tone. I have dry skin and warm color undertone. I loved the feel of this foundation. I have been trying it out for the past few weeks and was satisfied with the texture and the nice fruity scents. I love how it blends in nicely and it feels light and not sticky. It is like not wearing a foundation due to the color pay-off. This foundation has medium coverage and could be build up without looking cakey. It does cover dry patches on my skin but with a little concealer it works wonderful. Once the foundation set in, my skin feels smooth and soft.

It also claimed to give 16 hours of radiance boosting and revived complexion. My face does looked more radiant¬†and fresh. After about 3-4 hours later¬†when I checked on the mirror,¬†I saw¬†a little bit¬†of shine¬†on my T-zone.¬†But that’s about it¬†on the downside. Just pad some setting powder and good to roll.

The glass bottle packaging was average I would say. But with the pump it makes quite a lot of difference. Easy to use and limit wastage (accidently pour too much) and hygenic.

I am very happy that I finally found an amazing foundation that works for me. The price was a bit steep but overall it was a great product to have. Great value for money in my opinion, given a little of this product goes a long way.

Let me know what’s your favorite foundation?¬†What are other foundations you have tried before¬†that works or may not¬†work for you. Make sure to leave your¬†comment below : )) Thx.

Maybelline NY Color Tattoo cream gel shadow ~ Painted Purple (No.20)

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 hr

Purple eyeshadow? Anyone? Well, I always ended up choosing purple color eyeshadows everytime I shop. Purple seems to attract my attention more somehow. So, I got drawn to get this painted purple in No. 20. I must have this lovely vibrant cream gel shadow to my collections.  Color choice is a little bit limited. There were only 6 color shades to choose from.

What so special about this Color Tattoo is that it claimed to last for 24 hours. I wore it just by itself¬†for 8 hours and it does live to its claim¬†to be¬†long lasting.¬†It is not recommended to wear any eye makeup or cosmetic to sleep –¬†in my opinion. So, the 24 hours long lasting claim¬†is a bit of a stretch. I have to use more eye remover to clean¬†them.

I like the creamy and smooth texture of this product. It blends so easily and without creasing and the best thing is that I can use my fingertips for even blending. The price is  very affordable for the value of this product. The packaging makes it looks trendy and pretty.

So, for those who feels the need to wear something for a long lasting period of time, then I would recommend it simply because it lasts.

Has anyone of you have a favorite color eyeshadow that caught your very eyes everytime you shop for makeup?

Cheers!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Maybelline|The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette|REVIEW

 

 

Hey lovelies! Few weeks ago, as I was browsing on the Maybelline makeup shelves at one of the drugstore. I fell upon this amazing eyeshadow palette The NUDES.

I find The NUDES from Maybelline¬†quite¬†similar¬†but definitely not¬†a dupe for¬†the Urban Decay¬†NAKED Palette in their neutral colors. Don’t get me wrong, I love Urban Decay eyeshadow palette but this drugstore version is totally hard not to grab one.

It costs me like $14.99 plus tax at my local drugstore and that was the last second palette on the counter since it was just launched not too long ago. The price is decent and there are no other drugstore brands that has these twelve wonderful eyeshadows in the same palette on the shelves yet.

maybelline nude review

The colors are pretty and there are¬†six shimmering colors and six matte shadows. The texture of this product is quite pigmented and not chalky. I tried it and wear them for almost 8 hours¬†and it’s amazing how long it lasted.¬†I don’t have to touch-up. Yeah!

maybelline the nudes

Behind the packaging you can find some sort of isometric guide on how to apply the makeup correctly especially for beginners or fellow enthusiasts.

Overall, the¬†packaging looks simple and I love the neutral¬†look. Since it was launched recently, I will definitely going to get another one to stock up just in case. ¬†I’m sure¬†you can find it at any drugstores and do check out at Walmart¬†or Target. The last time I heard, Walmart is selling it for $10.00¬†a palette but¬†I got mine from my local drugstore (Shoppers’ Drug¬†Mart) for $14.99 and the prices can be different depending on which stores you frequented.

I am pretty well impressed with Maybelline’s The NUDES eyeshadow so far. Keep more coming “Nudes!”

Did you picked up your Nude Eyeshadow Palette? Let me know by commenting on the section below.

Thank you for taking the time to read.

Rimmel BB Cream|Review

 

DSC03031

Hey Gorgeous! I picked up this Rimmel BB Cream 9 in 1 Super Perfection in Medium. Net wt: 1 fl oz. I’m curious of the drugstore BB cream and I just have to try them try out ¬†I believe there are only 2 color selection which is¬†in light and¬† medium shades. It claims to provide SPF 25 with mattifying and brightening formula. It has a nice scent which is not overpowering.

DSC03033

Well, to get to the point of performance, the liquid creamy texture is a little thicker than other Western BB creams. It’s more like the Korean BB cream which has a thicker texture. It comes in a soft plastic tube packaging which I quite like. Easy to put in my makeup bag ūüôā

DSC03034

I notice that this formula has a some pink undertones. The consistency is not liquidy or runny and this makes blending and buffing so easy. I use my hand to apply the BB cream. It does seems to cover some of my uneven skin toned and some redness around my nose area but I would say it’s a light to medium coverage only. But this BB cream is buildable without looking cakey. Since I prefer my BB cream to be as natural looking as possible I just apply once all over my face and let it sets in. I do¬†notice¬†that my face is a little brighter but I can still feel the texture on my skin. It’s not lightweight but it does its job nicely.

DSC03035

I have a dry skin complexion and after the cream sets in I see more shine on my T-zone area. For you who has oily-skin complexion using a setting powder after the BB cream would help reduced the shining effect.

DSC03038

On me, I’m satisfied with the appearance from this BB cream. The shade fits my skin tone nicely and I like it. I wore it the whole day and I only need to touch up once after lunch but that was it.

Overall, I think this is a good product for you who love some dewy finish. It’s unfortunate that this BB cream does not have matte finish as it claims¬†but still the¬†price is reasonable price for a drugstore brand. It also¬†has a good amount of¬†SPF 25 in this formula.

Have you tried any drugstore BB cream? I love to hear your comment down below.

Thank you so much for reading.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick (The Rio Collection)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Alright ….¬†summer is almost coming to and end and I wouldn’t want to end my summer not¬†giving my first impression on¬†these amazing Revlon Super Lustrous Rio Collection lipsticks. I got mine at Target and it’s priced for $7.99. I picked up two¬†of my favorite shades in Carnival Spirit and Sultry Samba.

For this Rio Collection,¬†available in¬†3 lovely shades of : –

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

  • Carnival Spirit -a sheer ¬†coral orangy (shine) . It is moist and with light texture. I also picked up this Carnival Spirit to compare the sheer and matte formula.¬†I wore it for more than 3 hours and the color still stays on my lips eventhough the moisture has dried up a little. I wore this as a lip gloss since the texture is very sheer.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

  • Sultry Samba – a matte velvety bright pink. It is drier than the other two formulas. It is creamy and the matte stays on without color¬†transferring. I wore them for¬†my makeup review¬†and to my suprised the bright pink doesn’t seems too pinkish on my lips.¬†I have warm undertone and usually pink is the color that I will avoid. Well, Revlon has done it again. I like this Sultry Samba already.
  • Brazilian Tan – a creamy formula. It would be perfect if you are¬†warm tone¬†and who like¬†nude color for everyday wear.

This is one of my favourite drugstore lipstick brand and Revlon hasn’t disappointed me yet.¬†I would love to see more of Revlon’s matte lipsticks in the drugstores.

Have you tried any of these lippies? Please leave comment below.

 

Thanks for reading.
