Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in 52 Beige Rose

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in 52 Beige Rose

So before I go on and talk about this foundation, this post will also serve as an outlet for a mini rant about the World Cup. My routine is so messed up, I stay up everyday till 2-3! Concealer saves the day! Watching Spain concede 5 goals was torture. :( That said, the Sony Six pre-show Cafe Rio coverage is the worst television I've ever seen. I seriously miss ESPN-Star and John Dykes. Getting rid of John Abraham and bringing in Sunil Chhetri made it bearable. I'm still not happy though. They don't…Read more
Mac Face and Body Foundation in C4

Mac Face and Body Foundation in C4

Are you tired of the phrase "holy grail product"? Well, sorry, you're going to subjected to that today because I'm way too excited to share this review! Anyone who hasn't tried this foundation needs to try it. Yes, for once, the hype around it is true. I resisted buying this for a long time as I was quite happy with my Nars Sheer Glow. If you ask me to chose now, I'd pick Mac Face and Body for sure. It's not that the Nars one isn't good, but personally I just like the texture and consistency…Read more
Dior Diorskin Nude Foundation in 040 Honey Beige

Dior Diorskin Nude Foundation in 040 Honey Beige

This is an old foundation which I don't use as often anymore, I've used up most of it. The Diorskin Nude foundation is a hydrating foundation meant to give a dewy natural look. Exactly my kind of foundation, sheer and light. Diorskin Nude Foundation, rightly as the name suggests is meant to give your skin a natural glow and look. I use the shade Honey Beige 040. I'd say this foundation is similar to Mac Face & Body or Chanel Aqua Lumiere. The shade is a tinge darker than my skintone but in…Read more
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Syracuse

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Syracuse

Until recently, this has been my 'perfect' and go-to foundation. Nars Sheer Glow Foundation aims to give a dewy and natural finish. It adapts well to the texture of the skin and suits dry skin peeps like me. I have this in the shade Syracuse. If you're NC40-42 then Syracuse or Stromboli would be good matches. Nars has an excellent shade range, so hopefully you can find a good match. I specifically wanted a foundation that is easy to wear, doesn't feel heavy and can photograph well. That means no spf! I always…Read more

This past month I've tried a lot of new products and some of them are mentioned here while others are trusted favourites that I use everyday. Hope you are all having a good month!

Olay Complete Care Touch of Foundation in Medium

Olay Complete Care Touch of Foundation in Medium

I'm not sure if this is a limited edition item or if they've discontinued it. If it is, than I'd be very sad indeed. I was once in need of a tinted moisturizer, this is the first one I came across and bought in an instant! My gamble turned out for the better; this has been a saviour in cold winter months. As I may have said many times before this, I have very dry skin. The thought of putting it through foundation in winters and making it worse is unimaginable. So when…Read more
Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in 200 Soft Beige

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in 200 Soft Beige

I've had such a  busy schedule lately and the blog has severed from a lot of neglect. I hope to correct that from today. I think I'll be reducing the number of posts I make per week just to make it more manageble. This is foundation I was using quite often last year and most of it is over actually. Sorry for the terrible state it's in but pumps are so hard to manage. I bought Rimmel's Match Perfection Foundation after I read a review online. I wanted something for daywear and wasn't…Read more
Clinique Supermoisture Foundation in Warm Caramel

Clinique Supermoisture Foundation in Warm Caramel

Clinique's Supermoisture makeup foundation is a liquid foundation which offers sheer to medium coverage. Clinique isn't the most affordable brand out there so I had to do a lot of research before buying this. I'll say one thing though, this just doesn't get over! Yes, this isn't my most used foundation but even so the tube appears like it's never been used! You do get a lot of wear from this. I closest shade to mine is 12 Warm caramel. I'm an NC 35-37 and shade works pretty well for me. The foundation…Read more

Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer

It finally rained this week! All of a sudden the weather is so pleasant and cool! Anywho... as the name suggests, Stila's tinted moisturizer is perfect for summer if you don't want heavy coverage. Tinted moisturizers blend very well with the skin and provide a more natural look. It's suitable if you don't need a lot of coverage. They don't last very long though. So it really depends on your needs on what works best for you and your skin. It's sheer and oil free. It does even out my skin and stays…Read more
