Foundation TAG!

 

foundation tag header

Hey beauties!

I watched a youtube video by a beauty guru¬†where she talks about her foundation tag a while ago. I’ve been super busy and ¬†foundation tag topic has been sort of buried among many other tags and makeup reviews. But anyways, I’m super excited today¬†to be talking on this foundation tag. Yay!!!

First thing I wanted to point out is what my skin type is and what type of foundation I normally like. I would say that I’m¬†more of a dry skin typed. Generally the¬†foundation that I will choose has to have ¬†good coverage and long lasting are probably my two top priorities. In today’s tag I’m just going to focus on drugstore foundations.

So, the first question is :-

QUESTIONS:

1.Best Packaging?¬†I could go on several ways¬†with this but if I’ve got to choose, I’ll have to go with the Becca Stick Foundation. I love stick foundation because it’s easy to bring around and super easy to blend on face. It looks high end and the awesome¬†thing about stick foundation is that it’s not going to leak¬†out on you, or squeeze out from the tube or if it’s going to¬†break or burst out open. You can bring it anyway and I really enjoy this stick packaging foundation.

2.Best Color Payoff? (Coverage) This question seems like it would pertain more to different color cosmetic¬†than foundation and so I’m going to change it to Best Coverage. The best coverage foundation is the¬†L’oreal Visible Lift Serum Absolute in Honey Beige in my opinion. No surprises here! This is a good foundation and if you are looking for medium to full coverage to hide major skin discoloration and redness around your nose area then you’re going to like it. I really love the coverage on this one¬†where it leaves skin not looking cakey.

3.Most Versatile/Buildable?
Maybelline Fit Me Foundation is one of the foundation that I used a lot when I need a buildable formula for¬†coverage. It has a soft glowy¬†finish for dryer-skin toned and if you have an oily skin typed then you might not like this unless if you’re using the Fit Me setting powder with this foundation.
My shade: Soft Honey

4.Best for Travel?
NYX Stay Matte but not Flat Powder Foundation (Net wt: 35 ml) It comes in a toothpaste tube packaging which is light and easy to bring when travelling. The weight is not an issue (liquids permitted is 100 ml for carry-on)¬†if you’re planning to¬†fly from place to place. This¬†tube¬†has¬†a¬†twist off ¬†cap,¬†so I find it save to put it in my makeup bag. This is also a water base foundation which I prefer when going travelling since I’ll be wearing it everyday.
My shade: Nude

5.Biggest Regret?
L’oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder.¬†I picked this up with sheer curiosity that it might work and so I dived in to find out that this formula is not hydrating for my dry-skin type and the coverage and staying power is not something I’ll count on.
My shade: Natural Buff

6.Best color names?
Maybelline Dream Wonder Liquid Touch Foundation. This bottle of dream wonder somehow reminds me of the “I Dream of Genie” movie I watched like to¬†a decade ago. So, I couldn’t find any color names that fit in today’s foundation tag than this. Therefore, I choose Maybelline as it brings me into the¬†dream I wanted to be in ūüôā
My shade: Sun Beige

7.Least Used?
Hard Candy Glamoflauge Invisible Camouflage Foundation. Reason this is my least used is because this is the latest foundation which I did a review on last week and I’m be using it as frequent in the future especially when the days are getting warmer a lighter sheer foundation is good in order to prevent foundation fading away.
My shade: Light/Medium

8.Most used/loved?
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation has been¬†in my book from the beginning and¬†I’m loving it. It gives my skin the fresh and radiance – natural finish that I’ve been looking for. You wouldn’t feel like you’re wearing a mask but leaving your skin fatigue free effect. The scents is amazing and the coverage is beautiful.
My shade: Dark Beige

So, there you have it my foundation tag which I hope you’ll try doing it too. It’s fun and I’m excited for¬† another tag and in the meantime I look forward to read your answers to this tag. Just let me know by putting a link or tweet me.

Well, what do you think of this foundation tag? Will you do this tag? Leave your comment below.

As usual, thank you for stopping by.

The Procrastinating Beauty Blogger Tag

 

 

the procrastination beauty blogger tag

Hey guys! What’s up everyone?
Today, I wanted to do one of those fun beauty blog tags, and came across the Procrastinating Beauty Blogger Tag.. I thought it sounded pretty entertaining! I also thought I looked like a quite a big procrastinator (not ashamed to admit it), so I figured that needed to be included. I love to talk about beauty and makeup related topics especially when you can incorporate them into this tag. Anyways, here are my answers¬†to this tag, and if you’re a beauty blogger, I encourage you to do this tag on your own blog! ¬†‚ô•

1. Name a beauty regime that you rarely do? Curling my lashes is a regime and my new year resolution this year but I’m sort of ¬†like not today… not today and it’s been a month since I curled my lashes. I know that I seriously need to do something with my lashes but just keep putting it off.

2. Is washing your make-up brushes something that you do regularly? Unfortunately, I’m guilty as charged on the biggest¬†procrastinator¬†in history when it comes o cleaning my brushes. Yes, I know I have to wash them more regularly but I always have an excuse for this one.

3. How long will you last with chipped nail polish? Urrr…. maybe a week later or when my chipped nails¬†showing its ugly side ūüėõ

4. How long will you put off buying/replacing a beauty product, even if you need it? I wouldn’t say I can put off buying coz’ then I’ll be lying. I love…love makeup and have been buying¬†beauty products ever so frequently. But I do put off replacing skin care until I spotted¬†a special deal.

5. What is your worst beauty habit? I love to use my hands to¬†apply the BB cream or foundation. I though if I can use¬†my¬†hands to moisturize my¬†face then I’m good. Or in an¬†extreme case I might be¬†just too lazy to use a brush! lol

6. Name something non-beauty related that you put off doing all the time? Putting aside decorating and choosing the¬†right¬†furnitures for my solarium.¬†Unpacking¬†boxes in the basement. If you read my post, I have mentioned that I just moved to a new quite area a few months ago and yes¬†I’m a¬†procrastinator!

7. When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready to the last minute? Hmmm… how do I put it? Let’s just say that I’m usually the last person to be out of the house ūüė¶

8. Can you commit to spending bans? No, that’s¬†not feasible! I love spending on makeup and clothing. So, it’s going to be tough if I have to commit to spending bans.

9. How organized is your make-up and nail polish collections? Moderately organized. I have a multiple-storage drawer for all my makeup while nail polish are in a gift box

So there you have it, my answers. ¬†I hope you enjoyed reading them, and if you’re reading these words, you’re also TAGGED! ¬†If you do this TAG I’d love for you to leave your URL to the answers below so I can read them too ūüôā
Thank you so much for taking your time off to read.

Tag Post: Makeup Addiction TAG!

 

Hey guys,

I’ve been tagged to do this tag post by this lovely blogger Momina from Divine Smudge and do visit her post. Well, you see I have a lot on my plate writing my blogs, finished doing the Liebster Award nomination, nominated for Versatile Blogger Award and I’m not complaining when I was tag to do this Makeup Addiction Tag. I wanted to do it because it’s¬†such an interesting tag post that is perfect for makeup addicts like us.

tag pot makeup addict 1

Read more if you are a makeup addict like me … for those who are¬†not, beware to become addicted? (just kidding!)¬†

1. What product do you still keep buying more of despite having plenty in your collection? 

A: I will have to say lipsticks and eyeshadow palettes. I can’t help buying them even though I have lots. It started with lipsticks but I’m somehow venturing into lusting for more eyeshadow palettes. I’m not done collecting yet!

2. What is the one product you can’t live without?

A. Lipstick is a makeup product that can lift¬†a dull face to a lively radiant girl¬†mood. It’s easy to bring and I can apply¬†them without needing a¬†mirror ūüėČ

3. What is your favorite makeup brand? 

A: Whew!!! That’s going to be a scroll long but I’m just going to short-lit it to just a few.¬†I have tried Urban Decay, Lorac, Tarte, Tony Molly, Laura Mercier, Kat Von D and etc… on the high-end and for drugstore brand I would have to say Revlon, L’oreal and Rimmel for that’s the counter I will approach first before others.

4. How big is your makeup collection?

A: Here are what I have currently. It started with the small 3-tiers tray and grow to this big boy collection containers in 4 months and I intend to have a whole walk-in closet with all my makeup collections. One day babe! One day! (giggling!). My husband said that I’m obsessed with makeup! I’m like am I? Hmmm!!! Well, here are some of my makeup collections of blushes and foundations and etc … in other drawers.

makeup collection makeup addict collection 2

5. How do you like to store your makeup products?

A: I love to organize my makeup¬†in categories. The smaller tray is a little bit haywire simply because I leave all my previous purchases there and the recent in the bigger tray. The bigger tray I make sure that they’re all in order.

6. How many makeup items have you got in your handbag at the moment?

A: I have in my purse the essential like lipstick, lip gloss, an eyeliner and Revlon eyeshadow palette.

7. If you could raid another blogger’s stash, who would it be?

A: I’ll probably go for Zoella’s since I’ve seen her makeup drawers on youtube and she has many high-end products as she proclaimed in her blogs. So, Zoella don’t let me down if I only find drugstore brands, lol!

8. How long does your usual makeup routine take and how many products do you use in it? 

A: For an everyday look, I usually go with the basics and 5-10¬†minutes makeup is the norm and for a full face makeup it may take as long as the builders built “The Great Wall of China!” Joke aside, I will say 20-30 minutes are good enough for me to doll up.

9. Have you ever bought makeup knowing you would not use it?

A: I usually don’t. But sometimes, I caved in to those cute¬†lovely makeup packaging or unless the products were on uper duper steal to the extent that¬†I can’t resist picking them. Otherwise, I’ll prefer to pick makeup products that I can use and share my experience and reviews on with all my friends¬†here ūüôā

So, that’s my makeup addiction tag and if any of you makeup addicts that wants to do this tag, please do so. I would love to read your answers.

Thanks for reading.

Would You Rather – Beauty Tag

 

would you rather tag

Hi guys ,today I have been tagged by nreviewsproducts to do this tag.¬†I’m excited since this is my first time doing a blog tag. If you haven’t follow her please¬†check on her blog and do a follow.

1.) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?
I would rather lose all of my palettes and eyeshadows than losing mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks and lip glosses. I might have lost two but still have four.  

2.) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
I would rather never be able to cut it again. My hair shape how I looked. So, having long hair will allow me to style my hair differently everytime it grew long. He!He!

3.) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
Coral cheek because that’s what my warm undertone desires.

4.) If you had £1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
Hmmm… my answer will definately rather¬†spend on¬†makeup especially the high-end products since I have obsession with makeup.

5.) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
Lipstick as eyeliner. I prefer to put what’s made for the lips to the lips and I think it would be rather cool to have orange color matte lipstick as eyeliner. The Cleopatra eyeliner.

6.) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
Sephora. I can go to the store or order online. It’s convenient.

7.) Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?
One eye shadow color since I don’t wear eyeshadow as much.

8.) Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
I would rather wear summer clothes in winter of course. I can always layer up when it gets too cold.

9.) Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
Bright nails all year round. I prefer bright nails in order to look for natural.

10.) Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?
I would rather trade lipstick with eye product.

11.) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
Messy bun. Must be working hard and neglect my hair. Oh dear!

12.) Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?
I love to paint my nails sometimes so I have to let lip gloss go. I have lipstick as my company.

13.) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?
Yikes, to have no eyebrows at all. No, thank you. I need Sharpie my only choice to avoid having bare eyebrows.

14.) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
Aaarrggg …. without nail polish. That’s pretty easy.

Oh wow, that’s a fun tag to do and I tag anyone reading this post to do it. You can link it back to me so that I can rad your answers too. Hope you have fun reading.

 

Thank you for taking the time to read.

Sharon xoxo
